Cheers! Box

Hi everyone! I’m back today with my project for Momenta! Since I have several upcoming birthdays I decided I would created a gift box.


I started by taking a part a small box that I had on hand. I folded in one section and place in the embossing folder from the Happy Birthday Stamp and Emboss Set and run through the Freestyle Die Cutting and Embossing Machine. I completed the same steps for the other side of the box. 



I glued the box back together and inked over the embossed areas with an assortment of chalk inks.


I cut and adhered a piece of patterned cardstock from the Watercolor Metallic Paper Pad to fit the lid of the box.


I stamped the sentiment “Cheers!” from the Happy Birthday Stamp and Emboss Set and placed one of the Nested Oval Borders Metal Diecuts over the sentiment and cut out with the diecut machine.


I cut another oval diecut out from another piece of patterned cardstock from the same paper pad and glued to the back of the sentiment. I also stamped a party hat onto a piece of White Cardstock and fussy cut out. 


I added Foam Pop Dots to the back of the diecut and placed on top of the lid. 


I added to the party hat and a flower and leaf punch (from my stash) sequins and a gems before gluing to the sentiment. If you have any questions about this project please let me know. Also if you aren’t following Momenta you can find them on FacebookInstagram, Twitter, Pinterest and YouTube.

Burlap and Flower Thanks Card

Hi everyone! I am back today with a quick and easy card I created with a pre-bought card base that is the Burlap Creative Card.

I started by inking Art Daubers with the following chalk inks: Misty Meadow French Blue and Twist-Arctic Deep Chalk Inks. I inked over the Burlap Creative Card with the Arctic Deep Chalk on the outer edges of card and French Blue Chalk Ink in the center of card.

I placed the decorative heart stamp from the Bible Clear Stamp Set onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inked with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of watercolor paper. I stamped out the image three times. I inked an art dauber with Blush Rose Chalk Ink from the Soft Pastel Chalk Petal Point and inked all of the decorative heart images. Once dry I fussy cut the hearts out with Scissors.

I inked an Art Dauber with Alabaster Chalk Ink from the Soft Pastel Petal Point Chalk and inked over a leftover piece of Handwritten Creative Cards and adhered to front of card base. Next I inked the Thanks Wood Stamp with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of Watercolor Paper. I cut out the sentiment with a Paper Cutter  and I inked an art dauber with Arctic Deep from the Twist Chalk Inks, inked the edges of the sentiment and adhered to the bottom corner of card.

I inked the Leafy Border Rollagraph…I couldn’t find the actual leaf rollagraph but did find the moulding mat in the leaf border on Amazon…same thing just doesn’t roll 😁…with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and rolled onto a piece of watercolor paper. Next I inked the leaf with Ice Jade Chalk Ink from the Misty Meadow Chalk Inks and fussy cut the stamped leaf out with scissors. Lastly I added a dot of adhesive to the center of each decorative hearts and place on top of each other and bent the “petals” to create a flower. I adhered the leaf to back and added a button to the center of flower and added to the front of the card.
As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Seashell Journal

Hi everyone! I am back with a project I had originally created for ClearSnap using their ColorBox products. If you haven’t heard ClearSnap has closed there doors 😭 which makes me very sad. Their chalk inks where the first I had ever used and I absolutely fell in love with them. I hope that there is some company out there that might buy them out so we all can still enjoy using their wonderful inks, stamps, art screens, etc. I also used Eileen Hull’s Notebook Diecut for this project which is very easy to decorate. 
First off I placed the Mat Board on top of Notebook Diecut and placed between cutting plates and run through the Diecut MachineI placed the Geometrics Art Screen on top of the notebook diecut, loaded Art Daubers with the following Misty Meadow Chalk Inks: Ice Blue, French Blue, Ice Jade and Wisteria Chalk Inks and inked the cover. 

Once the notebook was completely covered I removed the art screen.

I removed the cover from a plain store bought notebook, punched two holes (top and bottom) in the spine of the notebook cover and did the same with plain notebook. 

Before tying off  the plain notebook to the inside cover I add a tassel to spine with Jute.

I inked the Faux Postal Rollagraph with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and rolled onto White Cardstock. Next I fussy cut the seashell stamp image out with Scissors. I loaded art daubers with Creamy Brown Chalk Ink from the Soft Pastels Chalk Petal Points, inked the seashell image and edges and adhered to the notebook cover.

I placed white cardstock on top of journal diecut from the Journaling Words Diecuts  placed between cutting plates and run through diecut machine. I inked an art dauber with Wisteria Chalk Ink from the Misty Meadow Chalk Inks, inked the journal diecut and adhered above seashell image.

I finished off by punching a hole in front cover of notebook and placing a screw fastener. I cut and tied jute to the jute on spine, tied off and placed around the  Screw Fastener to create a closure. Since I used Eileen’s diecuts in this project you can find more inspiration from the rest of her team HERE and HERE. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Dragonfly Photo Box

Hi everyone! I am back today with a Photo Box I created using Eileen Hull’s Stamp and Photo Storage Diecut and embossing powders by ColorBox. I started by cutting two Stamp and Photo Storage Diecut from Matboard using a Diecut Machine

I cut one of the flaps off of each diecut and placed one of the diecuts in the Floral Frame Embossing Folder and run through the diecut machine. I put the box together according to directions on the Stamp and Photo Storage Diecut packaging.
I used a hot glue gun to adhere the two diecuts together to create a box and I cut to fit three pieces of cardstock and adhere to the sides of the box. 

I adhered lace and flat back pearls to the bottom of the box. 

Next I cut two flowers from the Stitchy Flowers and Leaf Diecuts and punch leaves from the mini leaf punch and shape and adhere to the bottom of the box and add a flat back pearl to the center of the flower.

I used two dragonfly diecuts from my own personal stash and ink completely with Aquamarine Chalk Ink

After the ink dried I inked both with Top Box Clear Embossing Ink and added Copper Embossing Powder randomly on both dragonfly diecuts. 

I set the embossing powder with a Heat Tool and applied more Top Box Clear Embossing Ink and complete the same steps with the Gold Sparkle and Opalescent Clear Embossing Powders until desired effect is achieved.

I added adhesive to the center of one of the dragonfly diecuts and glue on top of the other dragonfly diecut. 

I bent the wings up on the dragonfly, adhere to the top of the photo box and add a flatback pearl to finish off the box.

This would be a perfect gift to hold wedding photos, graduate or personal photos in. Also below is links to most of the tools and supplies I used if you want to recreate this project for yourself. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Moments Tag

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:

ClearSnap, Paper House and Michael’s: Mini Santa Journal

Hi everyone! This month ClearSnap, Paper House and Michael’s have teamed up! We were challenged to use only products that you would find in Michael’s Store. Though this paper pad isn’t a Christmas theme I came up with a mini Santa journal for my project.

I inked the Jolly Santa Rubber Stamp with Wicked Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of speckled cardstock from the Paper House Color Washed Paper Pad


I inked the Santa stamp again with Wicked Black ink and stamp onto a piece of red cardstock (Color Washed Paper Pad). Only the Santa hat and berries will be needed. Next I fussy cut Santa, hat and berry images out and adhered the hat and berries to the Santa image.

I inked an Acrylic Block with Ice Jade and Aquamarine Chalk Inks, loaded a paint brush with water and paint the holly leaves with Ice Jade ink. Next I added shading to the holly leaves with the Aquamarine Chalk Ink. I cleaned the acrylic block and inked with Arctic Deep and Sea Crystal Chalk Inks and painted Santa’s eyes with both inks. I also added Pink Sky Chalk Ink to the acrylic block and paint Santa’s cheeks.

I applied Clear Glitter Glue randomly to Santa’s beard and holly leaves and finished by adding mini light green gems to the Santa image.

I cut a 6″x9″ piece of stripped cardstock (Paper House Color washed Paper Pad) and fold into to create a 4 1/2″x6″ cover for the journal. I  also cut five pieces of patterned cardstock in various sizes to fit the inside journal cover and folded those in half was well.

I measured 2 inches down on each end of the spine of the cover and mark with a pencil, poked a hole with the Tool ‘n One on each marked spot. I centered the pages inside the journal cover, poke holes in each page. I threaded a Needle with Twine and sew all pages inside and tied the twine off on the inside of the journal.

Next cut 2 1/4″x6″ piece of patterned cardstock and adhere to the cover along with the Santa image. Cut a gold piece of cardstock 3 5/8″x 1/2″ and a patterned piece of cardstock 1 1/4″x3″. Cut the end of the 1 1/4″x3″ at an angle to create a banner. Adhere both to the bottom corner of the cover. I cut a Seal (Hipster 1 Diecuts) from red cardstock. Next I cut the “d”, “e” and “c” letter stickers down and add to the seal diecut.

There you have it! This little journal can be used to take notes, as a planner or photos can be added to it! 

Also I would like to submit this project for the following challenges:

Spring is in the Air Gift Box Party Favor

Hi everyone! This month’s theme for Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team we had to create a DIY project for a party, bridal/baby shower or any type of get together. I decided to create a project that could be used for a women’s retreat/conference or as a party favor for a women’s luncheon. I created a decorative box to hold a small notebook, pen and finger nail file. The notebook and pen comes in handy for note taking. 

I cut two pockets from the Stamp and Photo Storage Diecut. Since I wanted the box to be wider I used the Make it 3D Diecut and cut three sides. All of these diecuts where cut from a heavy kraft cardstock. I embossed the two pockets with the Honeycomb Embossing Folder and I lightly inked over both embossed images with a brown chalk ink. 

I didn’t cut the flaps of the pocket off but adhered those over the Make it 3D sides to make the box sturdier. I glued patterned cardstock to the inside before completely putting together. Around the outer sides of the box I adhered patterned cardstock.

Next I cut four of the middle size Heart and Soul Flowers Diecuts from patterned cardstock, shaped and glued together. I added a vintage flower doily that I had found at the Country Living Fair to the center a long with a button. I cut two sprigs of leaves from the Spring Leaves Diecuts, shaped and adhered to the back of the flower.

 I adhered flat-back pearls around both side of the box before adding the flower to the corner of the box.

I added a few flowers from my stash, along with pearl and tulle sprays and a cording bow to finish off the box. 

For more party and shower ideas from Eileen’s Inspiration Team you can find those posts HERE, HERE and HERE. If you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Also I would like to submit this project for the following challenges:

Rosebud Journal

Hi everyone! It been awhile since my last post but I started phase four of remodeling. First I had to move furniture around and then cover everything in plastic before I could start scraping popcorn off of the ceiling in the den/breakfast nook/kitchen. I would have been finished but I came down with sinus/cold crud and I spent three days very medicated and sleeping on and off but I’m finally feeling better even though I don’t sound it…imagine man voice…ick. 😦

Anyway I had started and finished this little journal last month but hadn’t got around to photographing it until today so I thought I would share. 🙂



I started with Eileen Hull’s Passport Diecut which I cut both covers from Matboard.
I wanted six signatures for my journal instead of three like was on the diecut so I created a pattern and used that to cut a spine from the Grey Paper Leather.


I punched holes for the signatures in the Paper Leather and then embossed with Brenda Walton’s Floral Tapestry embossing folder (retired) and lightly inked it with chalk ink to bring out the embossing.


I keep the cover simple by only adding some Ric Rac, patterned cardstock and diecuts and the journal sentiment which I printed from the computer.


There are six papers per signature which I used a mix of scrapbook paper, doilies, mini paper bags, envelopes and cards. I used grey cording to attach the papers to the spine.


Now this little journal is ready for journaling, doodles and photos ( perfect size for Instax photos). 


If you have any questions about this project let me know. Now back to working on these ceilings. :-p

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