DCC and Gwen Studios Blog Hop

Hi everyone! I’m back today with my project I created for the Designer Crafts Connection and Gwen Studios blog hop!

Gwen Studios has a wonderful selection of beautiful ribbons, trims and bows and I’m so excited to be able to use a few of these on my journal page!

I love to use up what scraps of cardstock that I have laying around so I decided to create a page for my journal. First I gathered scraps of patterned cardstocks and the Peach Pom Pom, Tassel and Ribbon Box Set.

I adhered the scraps of cardstocks together and cut a piece of the peach ribbon to fit the bottom of the page. I punched a hole into the ribbon and cardstock on either side of the page. I selected from the Oh Snap! Snap Fastener Kit (online Walmart July 2021) a heart shaped snap, placed into the punched hole and set with the fastener tool.

I cut and glued a piece of the tassel from the Peach Pom Pom, Tassel and Ribbon Box Set to the side of the page.

I added a flamingo and flower diecuts that was laying on my desk to finish the page.

Be sure to stop by the DCC blog to see what the other members of the team have created. You can find the link HERE.

Chapter 4 Release Party Blog Hop: Lets Party Album!

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to be a part of Eileen Hull’s Chapter 4 Release Party! There are two new ScoreBoards releases from Eileen Hull and Sizzix! Are you ready for a new 3D Bigz L Tea Cup die? It can be filled with teabags and other assorted goodies or use the Tea Cup cutout on the front of a card there are so many possibilities. Also new is the XL Post Box, a fun little box that goes together in 10 seconds and has a slit in the top to tuck a gift card. You will have fun embellishing in your style to create holiday treats for everyone on your list!

I used the Teacup and Spoon Diecut to create a fun little Birthday Party Album along with several of Eileen’s older diecuts (several that are retired): Banners and Pennants, Bookplate, Hinges and Label, Credit Card Sleeve and Tags and Sweet Treats for You Diecuts.

I cut out six tea cups, backed two with Chipboard to make the front and back covers sturdy, from the Let’s Celebrate Collection. Also most of the collection is double sided.

I also cut out two of the “walls” (lack of a better word) and cut “flaps” off and adhered together to create little pockets for some of the inside pages.

The tea bag diecuts I cut out several and added thread bows and I cut banners out from the Banners and Pennants Diecuts and placed on top of the tea bag diecut and stapled together.

I decorated the cover and inside with a mix of diecuts. I also fussy cut a ton of images from the paper pad and added sequins and pearls to the pages.

I cut several pieces of lace, Ric Rac and fiber and tied all of the teacup together to finish the album. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

To hop along with the Chapter 4 Release you can find the rest of the Inspiration Team and Educators projects HERE.

Decoupage Journal Cover DIY

Hey everyone! Today I am playing along with the Designer Crafts Connection’s Decoupage Link Party Blog Hop! I’m sharing a simply journal cover I created using the Pocket Notebook Diecut, Botanical Tissue Paper and Mod Podge.
I started by cutting out two Pocket Notebook diecuts covers from Mat Board.
I cut two pieces of the Botanical Tissue Paper larger than the pocket notebook covers. I applied the Mod Podge to the covers with a sponge brush and then carefully placed the tissue paper onto the covers. 
I also slowly worked the air bubbles out and what didn’t rub out disappeared with two more coats of Mod Podge.
I adhered both halves of the cover together, added a decorative oval diecut and a chipboard flower sticker to the cover.
I adhered patterned cardstock to the inside covers and spine. I also strung the spine with elastic cording to hold notebooks and closure.
There you have it! I plan on adding junk journal style notebooks to this at a later date so stay tuned. Be sure to hop along with the rest of the DCC team and see how they used decoupage in their projects. You can  the post HERE. Also if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Designer Crafts Connection: Petal Paper Flowers Tag

Hi everyone! I am so excited to be a part of the Designer Crafts Connection group blog hop this month that is sponsored by DCWV. 
DCWV has been a long-time producer of the stack-a set of coordinated papers. Stacks have been made in so many themes and colors over the years. Happy members of the American Crafts family of products, they continue their pursuit of serving the consumer and their crafty needs with new paper stacks releasing several times a year in updated themes and colors. You can find them online and in a variety of craft stores.

Each designer received a package of Petal Paper by DCWV which can be found at Joann’s in store or online. I knew that DCWV produced the stacks but had no idea that they had a line of different colored crepe papers? Who knew? I received a package of yellow and orange petal papers and knew I had to grab some diecuts and make flowers out of this.  
I folded the paper several times and placed the flower diecuts on top of the Petal Paper and run through the diecut machine.
I added a drop of adhesive to the center of each flower diecuts, placed on top of each other and pinched in the center and shaped.
Next I inked up my glass tray and added a little water to each ink. I randomly painted a tag and once dry placed in the Fractal Embossing Folder and run through the diecut machine. I lightly inked over the edges and raised areas of the tag with a blue chalk ink. 
I raided my stash and added a frame diecut and banners I created from cardstock to the tag. I adhered the flowers, leaves and leaf sprigs to the upper and lower corners of the frame diecut.
I also glued thread and cording bows, buttons, a heart shaped gem and a bit of lace to the flowers.
I placed two cute little girls paper dolls to the tag. I also applied an adhesive sheet to the piece of cardstock before cutting out a hello diecut and placing over the little girls. I finished off by adding sequins, pearls and a ribbon bow to the top of the tag.
You can find more ideas HERE.

Chapter Two Blog Hopping with Eileen Hull: Boho Trinket Box

Hi everyone! Today is the day! Thanks for joining us for the Eileen Hull Release Party Blog Hop! The Inspiration Team is excited they can finally share their Sizzix Chapter 2 projects. All throughout April, the designers will be sharing tutorials and videos!
The Tiny Book measures 2 1/4” x 3” and is just the right size for wallet size photos, stamps, quotes, tags or tiny cards. The Tiny Book Case is designed to hold the book, a gift card, earrings, or small treats. If you haven’t gotten your hands on a Tiny Book and Tiny Book Case yet, you can find them at your local retailer, HERE or in Eileen’s ETSY Store.
I created a little trinket box with the Tiny Book Case. I started by applying Adhesive Sheets to both sides of the Matboard before placing patterned cardstock to both sides of the matboard. I placed the diecut on top of the matboard and run through the Diecut Machine. I folded and adhered together according to the direction on the packaging.
I punched a hole with a Crop-A-Dile into the top center of the flap on the box.

I added the clap to the elastic before tying off on the inside of the box.

I adhered a couple of scalloped circle punches to the clasp along with a frozen Charlotte doll from my stash. I finished off by adhering pom pom trim to the flap, thread, a flower and leaf punch to the clasp.

Now for the fun stuff! Please hop down the list to see what the team has been working on. If you leave a “love” (comment) on each of the designer’s posts by April 6th, you will be entered to win a Tiny Book die! The winner will be announced on Eileen’s Facebook Live on Tuesday, April 7th. Pretty easy huh?

Candid Strawberry Moments Layout

Pink and Main and ClearSnap Blog Hop


Welcome to our blog hop! We hope you enjoy the inspiration found on the teams blogs from Pink and Main and ClearSnap.
For my project I decided to create a layout using the Candid Moments Rubber Stamps Set and Rainbow Glossy Dots from Pink and Main and an assortment of Eileen Hull’s ColorBox Blends from ClearSnap.


I started my layout by cutting the 12″x12″ Cheerful Two Cardstock by Authentique down to 8″x8″. Next I cut a ColorBox Creative Cards Tiny Dots in half. On a glass tray I inked the following ColorBox Blends onto the tray: Wildberry, Tutu, Frog and Leaf and I misted the inks with water. I loaded a brush with each color and applied the Tiny Dot card base. I then misted with water to get a running paint effect and once dry I inked the edges with Wildberry.



I stamped on a piece of watercolor paper one of the camera images using Archival Dye Wicked Black Ink.


I cleaned my tray off and inked with the ColorBox Blends: Ebony, Wildberry, Melon, Leaf, Uniform, Bay, Beach and Coconut and painted the camera image. Once dry I fussy cut the camera out.



I adhered the Tiny Dot card base slightly off center of the patterned piece of cardstock.



I cut a 1″x7″ piece of yellow cardstock (I forgot to photograph this step 😟) and glued it near the edge of the Tiny Dot card base. I stamped the “enjoy the candid moments” sentiment with Archival Dye Wicked Black Ink and edged with ColorBox Cat’s Eye Ice Jade Ink before adding to the layout. I pulled these adorable images from my phone of my grand daughter. I printed these four photos out using my Selphy printer and I adhered the three of the smaller photos to the yellow strip.


The larger photo I adhered to the opposite side of the three other photos, added the camera image and five glossy rainbow dots next to the sentiment. I finished off the layout with some pom pom trim and Ric Rac.


Now for the fun stuff!!!There are prizes available for this hop! Pink and Main will be giving a $25 gift code to their website, and Clear Snap will be giving away a prize pack valued at $25. All you have to do to win a prize is hop along the blogs and follow and leave comments on their posts. We will choose 2 random winners from the comments posted. We will post the winners on June 1st.

Here is the lineup for the hop… enjoy!



As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Eileen Hull: Season’s Greetings Gift Card Holder

Hi everyone! I am back with a quick gift card holder for this month’s blog hop with DCWV and Eileen Hull! If you are like me and you give a lot of gift cards at Christmas but don’t have them on hand or the wrong theme this House Gift Card Holder is the perfect solution.

I started by cutting two of the house dies from the DCWV Cranberry Christmas Collection. The lighter patterned cardstock I cut a part and adhered to the inside of the card (the cardstock that will be seen once the flip/door is open on the card….back wall and door). Next I glued the sides and once dry I inked the edges.

I added trim, Ric Rac and button to the roof of the house and tied gold metallic thread around the button. From the cut a parts in the same collection I use my circle punch to punch out the snowflake. I adhered the top portion of the circle to the card, added a Dew Drop and sequins. This will keep the flip/door closed. Also from the same cut a parts I added the season’s greeting sentiment to the door and I adhered a dew drop and sequins to create a door knob.
This is a very easy card to create and you can knock out several in an hour!

Also I would like to submit this gift card holder for the following challenge:


Be sure to check out this past month’s projects from the Inspiration Team. You can find the post HERE, HERE and HERE and DCWV HERE. As always if you have any questions please let me know.
