Hi everyone! Spring is right around the corner and I am so ready for warmer weather, leaves and grass to turn green and the flowers to bloom and today over on Canvas Corp’s blog this little Easter banner is featured. If you would like more info and photos about this project please click HERE.
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 adhered a Vintage Brass Heart along with pink thread, button and dew drop to the corner of the heart.
If you have any questions about how this banner was made and put together please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Saturday is wonderful and enjoy creating!
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.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your day is awesome and enjoy creating!
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.
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!
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Thursday is awesome and enjoy creating!
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.
First I started with an empty Oreo Box which I will use as the cover for my recipe album.
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.
Next I adhered the sewn signatures to the inside spine. Now for the fun part decorating and adding recipes! 🙂
I used Journal Lines on White Cardstock to write most of the recipes on.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Hi everyone! I am here to share three cards I created for a Canvas Corp crew challenge.
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.
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. 🙂 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. 🙂
