Hi everyone! I’m back today with a quick and easy Christmas card in not so traditional colors.
I have the Be Merry and Floral Frame Embossing Folders by Brenda Walton (retired). I’ve used the floral frame embossing folder in several past projects but have never used the be merry embossing folder so I thought I would try my hand at making a card with it.
I placed a Lime Cardstock into the folder and ran through the Diecut Machine. I used a combo of a plum and watermelon chalk inks and lightly inked over the raised image on the cardstock. Next I applied Glitter Glue to different raised areas on the cardstock.
I cut and folded a piece of patterned cardstock, 5″x7 1/8″, matted the embossed image with White Cardstock before adhering to the card base. I punched a circle from pink cardstock and fussy cut a Santa face from a scrap piece of cardstock and glued both to the bottom corner of the card. I finished off by adding Clear Sequins randomly to the card.

Hi everyone! I’m back again with a project I created for a swap I was in! For this swap we had to create three rolodex/memorydex cards plus decorate a small basket for Easter…I know Easter was several months ago. 😁 The swap was put on hold for about a month because of Covid19 and once everything started opening back up a new date was set for the swap. Well, by this time I got behind and I am just now getting caught up with my extra curricular projects.
I have an old Rolodex Diecut that I had purchased from Stampin’ Up a very long time ago that I used to cut out my rolodex blanks. You can use store bought rolodex cards or here are links to Heidi Swapp’s Memorydex Card Diecuts HERE and HERE.
I used Brenda Walton’s Country Cottage 3D Diecut, Floral Tapestry Embossing Folder and Eileen Hull’s Make It 3D Diecut (all retired) to created the house for the rolodex card. I used Chipboard that I covered in patterned cardstock to created the house and I also backed the rolodex with chipboard as well. I wanted the house diecut to be “thinner” than the original so I cut only the front and back and used the Make It 3D diecuts for the sides and then adhered to the rolodex card base.
I dug into my stash of flowers, leaves and butterfly punches and added those to the roof along with thread, trim and a gem for the center of the flower.
On the corner of the rolodex I adhered more flowers, thread and cheese cloth. And there you have it! The first rolodex of three that I have created. I will be back soon to share the other two rolodex cards. If you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Hi everyone! I’m back with a tag I created in honor of my son and daughter in law’s wedding anniversary that is today. I had these photos laying around and I thought why not create something with them and this is what I came up with.
I placed the Geometrics Art Screen on top of tag, loaded two art daubers with Tutu and Melon and randomly ink areas of art screen and once I achieved the desired effect I removed the art screen. I inked the glass tray with Coconut Blends 2 Ink, added water to ink, loaded a Paint Brush with ink mixture and splattered the tag.
I cut two photos to fit the tag. I adhered the first photo slightly off the side of tag. The second photo I cut a piece of textured white cardstock slightly larger than the photo an inked an art dauber with Melon Blends 2 Ink and inked the edges of cardstock and then adhered the photo to the mat. I added Foam Pop Dots to back of photo and placed slightly off other side of tag.
I placed a scrap of white cardstock on top of the Journaling Cards, Flowers and a piece of Crinoline Fabric on top of the Leaves Diecuts and run through the diecut machine. I shaped two flowers diecuts with a Stylus and adhered together and added two sequins and a gem to center of the flower.
Next I inked an art dauber with Frog Blends 2 Ink and inked the fabric leaf. Once dry I adhered to back of flower and added to the bottom of the photo.
I looped several threads to create two messy bows and adhered one under the flower diecut and other under the smaller photo along with a few pearl sprays.
I finished the tag by cutting two nine inch pieces of seam binding and tying into a bow at the top of tag. As always if you have questions about this project please let me know.

Hi everyone! I’m back today to share my project I created for Momenta! I wanted to create something floral that I could display on my fireplace mantel with all of my other knick knacks and since I had never created a large medallion I thought the Peony Paper Pad would be perfect for this project.
I adhered each section to the end of each medallion “panel”.
Then I glued the ends together to create a circle.
Then the worse thing happened when I pushed it down to create the medallion the paper ripped and no it wasn’t a small rip it was big. 😞 I tried to fix it with a hot glue gun and it wouldn’t hold so I used my trusty bottle of Zip Dry Adhesive and it held the center together. I was very determined to make this project work no matter what. A side note the next one I make I will add two more panels for a total of eight instead of six.
I decided to add two big banners to cover the rip of the medallion. I picked the cardstock for the banners from the Metallic Ink Paper Pad. I cut a “v” in the end of both banners before adhering on top of the medallion.
From my own personal doily stash I adhered a 5 1/2″ mint green doily on top of the banners. The second doily is from the 4″ Watercolor Doily which I glued off center of the other the larger doily.
I picked a floral cardstock from the Peony Paper Pad and fussy cut several of the flowers and leaves out and then adhered to the doilies. I also added a cording bow under the lower collection of flowers on the medallion.
Now it is ready for the mantel along with all my other spring decorations. Need more inspiration? You can find Momenta’s blog HERE. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Hi everyone! I want to share a mini Easter basket I created using an empty cottage cheese container.
I started with an empty container of cottage cheese…if you aren’t fond of eating cottage cheese a yogurt container will work too and if you don’t like yogurt maybe you can find someone to eat it for you. 😁 I cleaned it inside and out and let dry.
The cottage cheese container I used I peeled the label off. So I traced with a pencil the outside of the label onto a piece of Watercolor Paper
and cut out with scissors.
I inked the glass tray with Hydrangea Blends Ink. I added water, painted the watercolor paper and let dry.
Once the watercolor paper is dry I adhered watercolor paper to container.
I punched holes on either side of the container with a hole punch and ran a pipe cleaner through each hole and twist to secure to the container.
I placed a piece of textured white cardstock on top of the Brenda Walton: Medallion Diecut (retired) and place between two cutting plates and run through the Diecut Machine
. I put the medallion together according to directions on packaging. I inked an Art Dauber
with Old Rose Ink from the Sunset Petal Point Ink Pad
and ink edges of the medallion diecut and adhered to container. I also adhered trim to the top and bottom of container.
I added Easter grass and decorative eggs to this little Easter basket but it would be perfect for candy, stickers and tiny little goodies. As always if you have any questions please let me know.

Hi everyone! I am back with another tag I created. I had actually created this tag for ColorBox for use in an advertisement in Creative Scrapbooker Magazine last year. I kinda let this post sit in the draft folder of my blog and never got around to posting the directions on how I made this…so here it is! 😁
I started by applying Dandelion Premium Ink to a glass tray, adding water and placing the tag into the watered down ink and removed. I cleaned off the tray and applied the following inks: Rose, Jade and Spring Premium Dye Inks to the glass tray and added water. I randomly place the Tag in the different colors of ink until desired effect was achieved.
I cut from a brown/wood looking cardstock a Wreath Diecut and inked the leaves with Ice Jade Chalk Ink. The wreath was bigger than the tag so I adhered to the front and wrap and glue the rest to the back of the tag.
Before glueing the rest of the wreath to the backside I measured and cut a piece of Yellow and Ivory Mini Dot Reverse Cardstock the size of tag and adhere to the back of the tag.
I cut from White Cardstock flowers and leaves from the Stitchy Flowers and Leaf Diecuts and from the Flower and Leaf Stitchlits Diecuts (retired). I added Rose Premium Dye Ink to glass tray, water and painted two larger flowers and once dry shaped with a Stylus and add two sequins and a flat back pearl to the center of each flower. I inked leaves completely with Ice Jade Chalk Ink, shaped with a stylus and adhered to the backs of each flower. I shaped with a stylus three of the mini white cardstock flowers and add a gem to each center.
I tied two bows with cording and adhere to the back side of the large flowers before gluing to the tag. I finished off by adding sequins randomly to the front of the tag and cutting 8 inch piece of lace and tie to the top. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Hi everyone! I am back with a Valentine’s Day project that I created for ClearSnap!
I started by placing the Matboard on top of the Heart Pocket Diecut only covering the whole heart…not the pocket. I cut two hearts from matboard and two hearts from patterned gold cardstock. I placed the matboard hearts, one at a time, in the Polka Dots Embossing Folder and run through diecut machine. I inked the glass tray with Tutu Blends Ink and added water and painted both matboard hearts.
Once both heart diecuts are dry I lightly inked over the embossed areas and edges of both hearts with Blush Pigment Ink and adhered patterned gold cardstock to the back of each matboard heart.
I placed patterned pink cardstock on top of the pocket of the Heart Pocket Diecut and ran through diecut machine. I adhered the tabs of the pocket diecut to the front of the embossed heart. Next I placed Adhesive Sheets on the front and back of a piece of matboard before placing patterned pink and gold cardstock on top of the matboard. I placed the covered matboard on top of the smaller “wall” of the Box, Make it 3D Diecut (retired) or you can use the walls/sides from the Bag, Coupon, Mini Shopping Diecut and cut two “walls”.
I folded the tabs of the “walls” and adhere to patterned gold sides of both hearts and glued gold trim around the walls.
I cut a paper doily in half and adhere to pocket along with lace to the edge of pocket and three buttons to the lace.
Next I cut four flowers and leaf sprigs from Crinoline fabric using the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Diecuts
. I inked the glass tray with Melon Blends Ink
, added water and laid all the flowers diecuts in the ink mixture. Once dry I added a drop of Beacon Adhesive Zip Dry Adhesive
to the center of flower and placed the other flower diecut on top and pinch and shape. I completed the same steps for smaller flower. I finished off the larger flower by adding a gem to the center and adhered to the corner of the small heart on the pocket. I inked the glass tray with Shamrock
and Citronella Dyestress Blendables Dye Inks
, added water and laid both leaf sprigs in ink mixture. Once dry I glued the sprig underneath the flower on pocket, added Tulle, pearl sprig and gold Ric Rac to corner of pocket.
I added the smaller flower and one leaf from the leaf sprig to the bottom side of the heart and I added loops of gold thread underneath both flowers.
I punched a hole on both sides of the pocket and threaded 12 inches of seam binding through each hole, knotted and tie off on each side.
Now all you have to do is add candy for that special someone and tuck a small card in the pocket and it is ready to give as a gift and once it is empty it makes a nice wall hanging. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
I would also like to submit this project for the following challenges:

Hi everyone and Happy November! I want to share an Autumn themed tea cup I created for ClearSnap!
I started by printing out a Tea Cup Printable from Layers of Color which is found on Pinterest. I printed on burnt orange cardstock and fussy cut tea cup and saucer images out and adhered all pieces together, including a paper doily that I added to the sauce before adhering to the cup. I also glued a small wadded piece of tissue paper to the bottom of the tea cup.
I cut Millinery Leaves Diecuts from white cardstock and inked the glass tray with the following ColorBox Blends Inks: Melon, Frog, Golden, Sunshine and Nutmeg. I added water to each ink and applied the ink mixture randomly to each leaf diecut.
While the leaves were still a little damp I shaped with my hand and let dry.
I adhered lace around the top of the tea cup and added dry moss inside the cup.
Once the leaves where dry I shaped and inked the edges of each leaf with Top Boss Embossing Powder Stamp Pad. I added Copper Embossing Powder to each of leaf diecut and set with a heat tool. I completed the same steps for each Golden Sparkle and Opalescent Embossing Powders as I did the Copper Embossing Powder.
I adhered the leaves inside tea cup along with mini pumpkins and mini pine cones. I finished by placing tulle and cording as a filler between mini pumpkins and mini pine cones. Now are you ready to create one for yourself? 😀 As always if you have any question please let me know.

Hi everyone! It’s been a busy week for me! I meant to post this project a lot sooner but I’ve been working on butcher block counter tops getting them ready to install…I can’t wait to get this kitchen finished!!! Anyway, I really love how this tag came together…the colors, the stamps, diecuts, everything!
I started by inking a glass tray with Petal Point: Enchantment-Heliotrope and Peony Inks and Cat’s Eye Lime Pigment Ink, add water and place tag in watered down ink. Once desired effect is achieved remove and let dry. Next I inked the Ornate Border Molding Mat with Alabaster ink and stamped the tag. I cleaned the molding mat and ink with Guacamole ink and stamp the tag again. I placed the Cameo Frame Embossing Folder midway of the tag and run through diecut machine. I lightly inked over the embossed image lightly with Warm Violet and Wisteria Chalk Ink.
I cut a vellum label from the Label Diecut and adhere in the center of the embossed image on the tag. Next I cut one strip of cardstock and adhere in the center of the vellum and embossed image.
I applied the Adhesive Sheet to the back of a purple and green piece of cardstock. Place the Moments Die with purple cardstock, Floral Arch Die with green cardstock and Flower Die with white cardstock diecuts on the cutting pad and run through the diecutting machine. Peel the backing off of the moments and floral arch and place on the tag.
Before adhering the flower diecut to the tag, shape and add a couple of loops of thread to the back and glue to the floral arch. I finished off by adding a Glossy Dot to the center of the flower and tie lace to the top of the tag. As Always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
I would like to submit this project for the following challenges:

Hi everyone and happy first day of October! I want to share an Autumn Hoop that I created for ClearSnap. I started by spritzing Log Cabin Smooch Spritz into a plastic bowl and adding a small amount of water to create a stain. I saturated a fabric scrap and wipe down the wooden hoop until the desired color was achieved. I put the hoop a side and let dry.
I cut from white cardstock nine leaves from the Millinery Leaves Diecuts. I inked up a glass tray with the following inks: Eileen Hull ColorBox Blends: Nutmeg, Sunshine, Golden, Frog and Melon and ColorBox Premium Dye Coral Ink and added water to the inks. I placed the leaves in the inks mixture until all were covered. Once dry I placed each leaf in the Textured Impressions embossing folder and run through the diecut machine. Next I lightly ink the veins of each of the leaves with the ColorBox Petal Point Fluid Soft Pastel Chalk Ink Pad.
I inked the glass tray with Eileen Hull ColorBox Blends: Nutmeg Ink and add water and loaded a paint brush with watered down ink and splatter each leaf. Once dry I shaped with a stylus and my hand.
I cut from white cardstock several Sizzix/Eileen Hull: Heart and Soul Flowers Diecuts and inked a glass tray with Eileen Hull ColorBox Blends: Sunshine and Golden Inks, added water and laid each flower in the ink, remove and let dry.
Next I shaped the flowers with stylus and adhered together. I layered buttons and a sequin in the center of each flower and adhered. I glued the larger of the two flowers to the top center of the wooden hoop.
I added a layered mix of the other smaller flower, leaves, twigs and Fall Berry Sprays around the top of the hoop. I finished by adhering several loops of cording to the arrangement.
As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
