Canvas Banner of Love Banner

Hi everyone! I am back to share a banner I created for Canvas Corp’s booth at CHA. I used a variety of canvas shapes as follows: Canvas Pennants, Pocket and Tag to create the bases for a love banner. I spattered and sprayed all of the shapes with the following glimmer¬†mists and glam glitter paints: Cadillac Pink, Wedding Pink and Grandma’s House.

I cut a scalloped circles from Lt Pink Burlap and Pink and Ivory Toile Cardstock to add to the various banner shapes.

I cut the letters LOVE from the Black on Kraft Alpa cardstock. and framed with some of the letters with Pink Lemonade Thickstock and a heart was cut from the Pink Lemonade for the center banner too.

I adhered a Vintage Brass Heart along with pink thread, button and dew drop to the corner of the heart.

On a couple of the banners I used White Mini Bags in a fun way to frame some of the letters along with Lace, thread and Jute.

The medallions for some of the banners are cut from Pink and Ivory Ribbon Stripe cardstock which I punched out and added Pink Lemonade Thickstock circles to the centers along with a button and some Jute.
When all the banners where finished I spaced and clipped with a Mini Lt. Pink Clothes Pin to Waxed Cotton White Cord. There you have it a simple Valentine’s Day banner.
Here are a couple of photos that my friend Jennifer took of my banner being displayed in Canvas Corps booth.

If you have any questions about how this banner was made and put together please let me know.

Canvas Corp: Noel Saggy Baggy

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a gift bag I decorated using a Lime Green Saggy Baggy and a Petaloo DIY Burlap Wild Sunflower paintable flower. This was a super quick and easy project to put together and was less than an hour to complete.

I spritzed the flower with Plain Jane Fire Baseboard Mist and let dry (you can use a blow dry to speed up the process).

I cut from the Green Burlap Sheet a Holly leaf used the Holly Branch Diecut, applied Mod Podge to the front of the leaf and once dry I spritzed with Kiwi Glimmer Mist.  I cut two inches of lace from the Lace Trimmings Assorted Pack and gathered in the center and tied off with Jute Cord. I tied off two more bows with the  Jute Cord and then adhered all the pieces to the bag with Beacon Adhesives Fabri-Tac.

I clipped to the jute cord a Mini Lime Green Clothespin and a tag from the Krafty Christmas Assortment of Tags. I added a button and a dew drop to the tag to finish it off. Oh so simply to decorate you can whip a bunch out in no time.
If you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Rustic Christmas Stocking

Hi everyone! Canvas Corp and¬†Petaloo Flowers are blog hopping together and I want to share a ¬†project I created using the Large Burlap Stocking¬†and Petaloo DIY Burlap Flowers which can be painted or misted to¬†compliment your projects. I don’t own a sewing machine and I sure didn’t¬†want to hand sew everything to the stocking so I used¬†Beacon Adhesives Fabri-Tac. It “grabs” fast and dries quick which I love!
I started by adding from my own stash green Ric Rac and red pom poms to the cuff of the stocking. 

I misted two of the larger DIY flowers with Gold Glimmer Mist and set a side. The smaller DIY flower I sprayed Plain Jane Baseboard Fire Mist into a disposable bowl and added a couple of drops of water and mixed and with a small paint brush applied the mixture to the flower and let dry. Once the larger flowers are dry I used the leftover Fire Baseboard mist and lightly applied color around the center.
I used the Holly Branch diecut to cut out three holly leaves from a 12×12 sheet of Green Burlap. I then applied Mod Podge to both sides of¬†the leaves and once dry I spritzed on one side Kiwi Glimmer Mist.
Next I made a couple bows from the Natural Jute and Lime Green Hemp. Also I cut two three inch pieces of lace from the Lace Trimmings Assorted Pack, gathered in the center and  folded to make what looks like a fan and tied off with the Natural Jute. Now for the fun part arranging everything on the cuff. I added in a couple of buttons too for some visual interest.

Now it is finished and ready for Santa to fill with goodies. If you do have any questions about this project please let me know.
Be sure to hop over the Canvas Corp’s blog HERE to see other decorated stockings for a chance to win up to eight stockings to decorate for your own family. Also hop on over to Petaloo blog HERE for a chance to win a prize package to make your holiday merry!

Save the Hooters!

Hi everyone! October is breast cancer awareness month. This card along with several other projects with a Think Pink 2015 are featured over at the Canvas Corp blog which you can check out HERE.
This card was created with a play on words but with a serious message. Breast cancer can affect anyone. With females it is the second leading cause of death and even though breast cancer is rare in men it is very important to know your facts and be checked yearly.
First I cut a piece of Grey and White Mini Dot Reverse cardstock and folded to create a 6″x6″ card base. Next fussy cut an owl from the Birds and Bees on Ivory cardstock.

Cut a 3 1/2″x5 1/2″ piece of Pink Lemonade Thickstock, emboss with a geometric design and lightly ink edges and over the raised design. Cut a scalloped rectangle from the Hot Pink and White Damask Reverse cardstock, cut a scallop edge from the Embossed Large Floral White Specialty paper and a 5/8″x6″ banner from the Pink and Ivory Mini Dot Reverse cardstock. Once everything is cut adhere to the front of the card.

I printed the sentiment from the computer, cut to create a banner and adhered to the card. I pulled a strand of hot pink burlap and made a loop and tied off to create the breast cancer emblem and then finished with sequins and flat back pearls.

If you have any questions please let me know. 
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Thursday is wonderful and enjoy creating!

My Little Book of Ice Cold Drinks

Hi everyone! I am here to share a drink recipe book I created using an assortment of  Canvas Corp products along with the Mixology collection and Tattered Angels mist.

First I started with an empty Oreo Box which I will use as the cover for my recipe album.

I carefully opened the box up, measure and cut to 6 3/4″x11 3/4″. The front and back cover should measure 6 3/4″x5 1/8″ and the spine should measures 6 3/4’x1 5/8″.¬†

Next I cut two pieces Turquoise and White Damask Reverse cardstock about a 1/2″ larger on three of the sides. Center and adhere each piece on either side of the spine.

Cut a small notice out of each corner of the overlapping cardstock, fold and glue to the inside.

Next measure and cut a 8″x3 1/4″ piece of Green Burlap, center and adhere to the spine. The extra burlap glue to the inside of spine.¬†

I added ric rac to the exposes edges of the burlap, cut the ice cold drink sentiment from the Happy Hour Sayings on White cardstock and glued to the cover. “My little book of” sentiment is a combination of stickers and the computer. The glass of water with lemon is fussy cut¬†from the Lemonade and Sweet Ice Tea Sayings on white Cardstock and a touch of both Marigold and Aquamarine watered down and lightly painted on the image. On the¬†inside covers I adhered two 10″ pieces of seam binding and then I cut to fit on the inside two pieces of Red and White Mini Dot Reverse cardstock. I finished off the cover ¬†with two buttons and a red gem.

For the inside pages I used a combination of different cardstocks and Paper Bags to create three signatures with six papers per signature.

I cut a piece of cardstock to fit the inside of the spine. I measured every 1/2″ across and punched 3 small holes a 1 1/2″ a part at each 1/2″ section for a total of nine holes. Then I sewed each signature into place.

Next I adhered the sewn signatures to the inside spine. Now for the fun part decorating and adding recipes! ūüôā

I used Journal Lines on White Cardstock to write most of the recipes on.

The pull out is a Mixology Recipe Card and I used a variety of  Mixology products and other Canvas Corp cardstock through out the album.

I thought the Farmhouse Market on Ivory cardstock was a perfect addition. I fussy cut the fruit out and painted with the following glimmer mists: Rum Punch, Moss, Crushed Shells, Marigold and Peach Delight (discontinued).

Also with the leftover scraps of cardstock I added a decorative punched edge and adhered to the paperbag to make a tuck spot to add more recipes.

I still have blank pages to add more recipes but wanted to share what I have finished. If you have any questions about the recipe album please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is wonderful and enjoy creating!

Collect Moments not Things

Hi everyone! I am here to share a project I created ¬†from a 5″x7″ Kraft card and envelope¬†for a friend who loves¬†to journal. I turned the card base into a journal and the envelope into a cute little pocket which can be used as is or punch holes into the side and add to an album.

First I cover the envelope with the following cardstocks: Santa’s Journey: Comfort and Joy, American Vintage: Go and See and American Vintage: American Stamps (backside is decorated in this cardstock). I ran the denim fabric through the diecut machine and adhered vintage buttons, sequins¬†and dew drops to the scalloped edge along with lace and Red Burlap on the corner of the envelope.
I added strands of Red Burlap, blue thread, lace,tulle, paper flower, pearl spray and a large button with a seal punch from Red and Ivory Mini Dot Reverse cardstock with a sentiment from the American Vintage: Go and See Cardstock and framed that with a piece of Navy and Ivory Mini Reverse Cardstock that I cut into a banner.

The 5″x7″ card I rounded the corners and from the fold of the card I measured 1/4″ two time on each side of the fold and then scored to create a flexible spine. Next I inked the edges and cut and adhered the following cardstock to the front: Epicurean: Pomodoro, Little Red Pages on Kraft¬†and¬†Navy and Ivory Mini Reverse Cardstock. To create the post card I cut from the¬†following cardstocks: American Vintage: Wish You Were Here,¬†American Vintage: American Stamps,¬†American Vintage: Go and See Cardstock¬†and¬†Red and Ivory Mini¬†Dot Reverse cardstock¬†to pull it together.

I took two of the American Vintage 4″x6″ Printed File Folders and cut the tabs off (I punched and added my own tabs) then I cut ten sheets of grid paper for each folder and pamphlet stitched into each one with bakers twine.

Next I measured the folders and marked places for holes in the “folds” (top and bottom) of the spine of the card cover and then punched holes in the spine. Then I ran elastic through the holes and tied off on the inside. Then take the back cover of each folder and slid under the elastic. You can create more folders which can be added if you like.

Also you could decorate a larger envelope and add smaller cards with envelopes for a great gift too.
If you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Supplies Used:
Chalk Ink
Paper Flowers
Lace
Buttons
Sequins
Dew Drops
Blue Thread
Bakers Twine
Hole Punch
Needle 
Elastic

House Warming Invitations

Hi everyone! I am here to share three cards I created for a Canvas Corp crew challenge.

I used the 6″x6″ Black & Kraft Cardstock Paper Pack which is perfect to make 3″x6″ card bases with. The photo below is how I created the “peaks” of the house roof and once I measured and cut I folded sides to the inside of the card and adhered the edges along with the bottom edge to create a pocket.
I painted the Farmhouse Christmas Holiday Door Tag with Silk Glimmer Mist and Mint Julip Glimmer Mist…I sprayed this on a¬†deposable tray and then painted onto the door. The wreath I used Moss Glimmer Mist and I let the tags dry.

I used scraps of Blue & Ivory Mini Dot Reverse, Green & Ivory Dot Reverse, Tan & Ivory French Script and I used the back side of Santa’s Journey: Roof Top Cardstock¬†to decorate the doors and to create banners for the welcome sign which was printed from the computer. Also¬†I pulled threads from a piece of Natural Burlap to make the bows which I adhered to the bottom of each roof.

I added to the roof of each house scraps of lace, pom pom trim and rich rac and then finished off with buttons, sequins and a flat back pearl. The invite I printed from the computer and then cut to size to fit inside of the house.
If you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Supplies Used: 
Other Supplies Used: Buttons, Scalloped Oval Punch, Small Oval Punch, Sequins, Flat Back Pearls, Lace, Pom Pom Trim, Ric Rac

Canvas Corp Cards at CHA

Hi everyone! It seems like it has been awhile since my last post but I needed to take a moment and be still. I had been non-stop all the way up until the first of the year working on design team projects. I was also asked by Camille from Canvas Corp if they sent me cardstock (new product) would I be willing to do cards for the possibility of being used at CHA (Craft and Hobby Association) or being used in an upcoming look-book. Well, of course I said yes. ūüôā I came up with 12 cards¬†which I mailed off at the last possible moment (December 31st) and was very happy that it arrived in Camille’s hands on the 3rd of January.
I am now able to share with everyone since CHA is over with. Also Jennifer from Crafty Card Gallery had gone to CHA and took photos of my cards on display which I included some in this blog post.  
Hope you enjoy the cards. ūüôā

If you have any questions please let me know. Thanks for stopping by, hope your Wednesday is wonderful and enjoy creating!

P.S. I revamped my blog and had a new banner designed by Tiffany Jane which I think she did an awesome job on! ūüôā
