Wonderland Tea Party Folio Part 2

Hi everyone! I’m back and I want to share a couple pages from my Wonderland Tea Party Folio (part three I will try and share tomorrow). If by chance you missed part one of my folio reveal you can find that post HERE.

I used the Pocket Thinlit from the Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits to create a place to add tags and printables. I only glued it on two sides to create another pocket behind the pocket. I added a scalloped diecut from the Gift Box with Scallop Edges and Label Diecut that I had leftover from a previous project to the fold over on the pocket.

I adhered a couple of leaf sprigs that I had cut from the Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits to a crocheted flower that I had in my stash to dress it up a bit.

I adhered an empty tea bag ( I carefully cut the top of the tea bag to create a pocket) on two sides to create another pocket. I cut out two of the smallest size tags from the Waterfall Card and Tags Thinlits and added re-enforcers to the top of both tags. On one tag I glued the fussy cut image of the Mad Hatter to the top and on the other tag I added an Alice in Wonderland postage stamp from my stash. With this being a tea party theme I had to cut out a few of the teacups from the Teacup and Spoon Diecut and add as tag through out the journal.

The next page I matted with patterned cardstock and adhered a multi teacup printable (fussy cut) to create a pocket to hold the largest tag and teacup diecuts. I also added a teapot with tea time stickers to the bottom corner of the page.

I left the top of this page open so I could add an insert. I cut out two Photo Box Folders Diecuts (retired) (one to be used on an upcoming page) and glued a patterned cardstock, Alice image and oval diecut to one side of the insert. I adhered a fussy cut image to the tag too.

I used another printable that I fussy cut and adhered to create a pocket.

I embossed the tag with Queen of Heart Embossing Folder (retired), lightly inked over the embossed area with chalk ink and added a decorative brad to the top.

The next page I added another printable as a pocket.

I used the King of Spades Embossing Folder (retired) on this tag, lightly inked over the embossed area with a chalk ink and added the crown brad to the top of the tag.

This page has another set of double pockets with lots of tags and journaling cards.

Of course I had to add another teacup diecut to one of the pockets.

I’m going to stop here and will pick up (I hope) tomorrow with the final reveal of my journal. Eileen also has a new blog post today that shares more creativity from her team and you can find that post HERE. As always 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.

Be my Valentine Coffee Sleeve Album

Hi everyone! I want to share a project from the past with you today. This coffee sleeve album I created was published in the Craft Ideas magazine several years ago. I came across this while looking for something in my craft room and thought why not share (the magazine is no longer around. 😞)
I used four coffee sleeves that I had saved from Starbuck’s coffee runs with my husband. I adhered various rectangle shaped patterned cardstock to each side before using a Crop-A-Dile to punch two holes in each sleeve. I adhered the bottom of each sleeve together.
I deconstructed a Victoria Secrets bag carefully. I cut the ribbon from the handles and used those to tie the sleeves together. 
I used a scalloped diecut and cut a couple from the solid hot pink on the gift bag and placed with paper clips on two of the sleeves.
From my stash of Valentine goodies I added sentiments, used postage stamp, buttons, hearts, etc., to each of the pages.
I punched twelve diecuts out from cardstock and added three to each of the pockets on the sleeves. 
I added an assortment of diecuts and the “Be my Valentine” sentiment to the cover.
I also used paper flowers, a felt heart, buttons, mini gems shaped like hearts and pearl top pins to finish the cover of the album. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know. I also hope this inspire you to use with you have laying around the house to create your own album.

Count Every Beautiful Thing Tag

Hi everyone! I’m back today and wanted to share this colorful and slightly quirky tag I created using Eileen Hull’s Blends Inks.

I started by inking my glass tray with Sunshine and Melon Blends Inks, adding water and placing the tag into the ink mixture. Once the tag was completely covered I removed and let dry. I inked the Ornate Border Molding Mat with Berry Pigment Ink from the Mermaid Paintbox Collection and randomly inked over the tag.

I inked the Doll Faces Rollagraph with Wicked Black Premium Dye Ink, rolled onto a piece of Watercolor Paper  and cut out the face of girl looking straight ahead. I inked the Butterfly Wooden Stamp with Wicked Black Premium Dye Ink and stamp onto a piece of watercolor paper. Again I inked the glass tray with following Taos Petal Point: Amber and the Mermaid Paintbox Papaya Cream and Berry Inks. I added water and painted the butterfly image with ink mixtures and let dry. I fussy cut the butterfly image out, cut down the middle, added Clear Glitter Glue around outer edge of butterfly and once dry I adhered the butterfly wings, one on either side of the face image. 
I placed Watercolor Paper  on the Long Classic Scalloped Rectangle Large Diecut, placed between the cutting plates and run through the Diecut MachineBefore cleaning the glass tray I randomly placed the scalloped rectangle diecut into the leftover ink mixture from butterfly. Then removed and let dry. Next I inked the glass tray with Sunshine Blends Ink, added water, placed the scalloped rectangle diecut into the ink mixture and once completely covered with  the ink mixture I removed and let dry. I inked the Ornate Border Molding Mat with Amber Pigment Ink from the Taos Petal Point Collection and stamped onto the scalloped rectangles diecut.  

I placed the “Play in the Sun” stamp onto the MISTI Stamping Tool and inked with Wicked Black Premium Dye Ink and stamped onto the lower half of the scalloped rectangle diecut. Next I inked two leaves from a leaf sprig punch with Turtle Pigment Ink and once dry adhered next to the word ‘thing” along with sequins and a gem.

I placed vellum on top of the Delightful Circles Diecuts  placed between cutting plates and run through the diecut machine. I adhered to the backside of the scalloped rectangle diecut and then adhered to the tag.
I added Foam Pop Dots to the back of the butterfly face image before placing above the stamped sentiment.
I finished by adhering lace to the bottom of tag and adding a button, sequin, gem at bottom corner of tag and tying a bow at the top of the tag. I hope you like this tag as much as I enjoyed creating it. Also if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Vintage Heart Pocket Box

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.

I cut a small heart from the matboard and from the Tiny Dots Creative Cards using the Heart Pocket Diecut. I adhered the Tiny Dots on top of the matboard and inked the edges with Petal Point Fluid Chalk Ink Pad: Soft Pastel-Rose Coral Chalk Ink and adhered to pocket.

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:

Santa Pockets

Hi everyone! I’m back with some quick projects I created for a swap I was in on Instagram. Florence aka LiveLifeandCreate hosted this swap and we were supposed to send a Christmas card, something flat worth around $3 and decorate the envelope for three partners. Well, I didn’t make anything flat as you can see.😁

I decided I would make these Flower Pockets by Eileen Hull. Instead of using Mat Board (which I am running low on) I used chipboard which I covered with Adhesive Sheets before adding the cardstock and running through the Diecut Machine.

I used The Paper Studio Jingle all the Way Paper Pad to cover the pockets. I cut the Heart and Soul Flower Dies from Crinoline, layered and added a button and brad before adhering to the to the corner of the pocket. I added gold cording, a mini pinecone and Holiday Greens Dies (pine needles and holly) underneath the flower.

The second pocket I created as the first one but I used a store bought paper flower, a gem with button and a couple of berries from a greenery spray. For both pockets I added packages washi tape, a mini Christmas ornament and a Christmas card.

If you have any questions about these projects please let me know and I would like to also submit these for the following challenge:

Give Thanks Tag

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a quick tag I created for Thanksgiving. I had a lot of bits and pieces laying around for this project and it only took about an hour for me to create…this generally not the case when I make something. 😁I alway have leftover inks when I am creating other project so I grab a blank tag and lay the tag in the mixture and put it off to the side and let dry. So I now have something for later on to use as my base for a project and it is such a time saver too.

I embossed the tag with the Gridlock Embossing Folder and lightly inked over the embossed area with Nutmeg Blends Ink. I added banners that I had cut from patterned cardstock and a couple of circle punches to the top of the tag. I found this little girl and turkey image on the internet and printed and fussy cut. I added pop dots to the back and placed off to the side of the center of the tag.
I printed the “Give Thanks” sentiment from the computer and “Celebrate” sentiment I cut from a piece of cardstock. I inked the edges of the sentiments before adhering them to the tag. I had a leftover leaf sprig I had stamped from the Thankful Stamp Set. I had inked the sprig with Clear Top Boss Embossing Pad and applied Copper Embossing Powder but for the past project I was working on I didn’t like the way it looked so I didn’t use it. But for the this project I thought it added a nice touch to the cording, flower and buttons that I added to the corner of the tag. I glued another button to the top of the tag and finished by added lace to the top of the tag. 

I would like to submit this project for the following challenge:

Word Art Wednesday Anything Goes: Weeks #362-#363
As always thanks for stopping by and I hope your thanksgiving is wonderful and you get to spend it with people you love! Also enjoy creating!

ClearSnap: Autumn Hoop Wreath

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.

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

Eileen Hull: Peaches and Cream Felt Planner Journal

Hi everyone! I’m back again with another project using Eileen Hull’s Wrapped Journal Diecut but this time I made a planner out of it!
Before placing felt over the Wrapped Journal Diecut I placed the Movers and Shapers Floral Cutout Die inside the opening of the wrapped journal diecut  and cut out the journal. Then I used the Magnetic Platform and placed the Movers and Shapers Scallop Border Diecut and place the end of the wrapped journal over the scalloped die and cut.

Next I cut Tan Paper Leather to fit the inside of the journal and adhered with Fabri-Tac adhesive. This will make the journal sturdier. 

Next I cut a piece of pleather to fit over the paper leather and adhered to the inside.

I forgot to add that before adhering the paper leather and pleather to the inside I adhered tulle behind the floral design. The buttons I threads and tied off on the backside and adhered to the center of each floral cutout.

I adhered Pom Pom trim and lace to the outer inside edge of the journal.

I strung the spine with elastic cording and the closure I threaded elastic cording through the button and then sewed to the middle of the spine. I also added bits of lace, trim and ribbon to the spine.

I purchased a pack of three mini composition notebooks from the Dollar Tree and covered the front and back with cardstock.

I used an assortment of chipboard embellishments from my stash to decorate the covers. 

I cut a file folder down and created a place to hold stitchy notes and washi tape samples.

I cut from white cardstock the Credit Card Sleeve Diecut, embossed with the Daisy Wreath Embossing Folder and lightly inked over the embossed images. I adhered the sleeve to the folder, cut a tag to fit the slot and wrapped washi tape around the tape in case I wanted to decorate the planner on the go.

I created a pen loop to hold an ink pen inside the planner. I cut flowers and a leaf from felt with the Stitchy Flowers and Leaf Diecuts and adhered together and added a gem to the center of the flower.

I wrapped a small piece of elastic around the pen I am going to use in my planner and cut. Next I adhered each side of the elastic on either side of the binder clip, adhere the felt flower to the side of the binder clip and clip to the folder or notebook and add the pen.

I used motivational saying on the covers of the notebooks.

As always if you have any questions about this planner please let me know. Also if you haven’t had a chance to see what Eileen’s Inspiration Team has been up to you can find those posts HERE, HERE and HERE.

I would also like to submit this project for the following challenge:
Mini Album Makers Challenge: June Challenge

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