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

Vintage Lady and a Rose

Hi everyone! I am here to share a project I created using Eileen Hull’s Box Diecut and her new flower and leaf diecuts which I don’t have a link to those yet since they haven’t came out  but I will try and come back and add the links when they are released. 🙂
I had actually decorated this box several months ago and the idea I had for it wasn’t going to work out so I put it aside and “sat” on it.

The vintage woman printable I purchased from Eclectic Anthology’s Massive Vintage Victorian Graphics and Clip Art Bundle. I sized the image down, printed off and then fussy cut out…also the butterfly printable is from The Graphic Fairy.

I filled the inside of the box with tissue and then adhering the woman, tulle and moss in the box. The rose I spritzed with Wedding Pink Glimmer Mist, let dry, shaped and glued together before adhering to the moss and tulle in the box. Also I added a little bit of Stickles to the edges of the flower. 

The leaves I used a variety of chalk inks to both sides of the diecut and then I shaped with a stylus and added to the top of the box and to the rose. I adhered flat back pearls and lace to the box to finish it off. If you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Robin’s Nest: Altered Snowflake Gift Card Box

Hi everyone! I am here to share another quick Christmas project for the Robin’s Nest. I give a lot of gift cards as presents and it seems like I am either running out to buy a card holder boxes or my mom is always needing one. I try and stock up after Christmas when everything is half off but sometimes I can’t find those in the already picked over selection of Christmas items. I figured since I have this Bath and Body gift card box  why not alter it into something Christmasy/Winter that can be used for the season? 

The more info on this project please go HERE.

Friendship Tag and a Winner!

Hi there! I hope everyone had a great weekend. Mine was great since I celebrated my birthday. It was a day spent with my husband which we went out to eat and a little shopping at Michael’s. I was looking for some type of storage containers for my craft room. I bought some snap together kraft paper covered boxes to store my massive amount of cardstock in. Well, after putting both boxes together I am not so sure about them. :-/ A couple of snaps would not snap together for anything…I guess that was why they were on clearance. Oh well, I will make them do since I demolished the packaging. 
Also I want to share the winner from my blog of this past Saturday’s post for the Crafty Card Gallery Blog Hop. 

Drum roll……and the winner is: Sarah Biswabic!!! Congratulations Sarah! Please message me at Mscraftyt@aol.com with your mailing info. Also in the subject line put Blog Hop Winner (I get a ton of emails and might miss it). 

Also I would like to share a tag I created. I had added cardstock to the base but laid it aside and never got back to it. I found it under a pile of cardstock and decided to finish it.

I used some leftover scraps of cardstock, mini pom pom trim, flatback pearls,dew drop and a sequin to the tag and I topped off the tag with a sentiment that I had received in a swap. Lastly I added seam binding and ribbon to the top of the tag. 
If you have any questions about this tag please let me know.

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.

There was a Fairy that Lived in a Shoe…

Hi everyone! For over a year now I have participated in Eileen Hull’s monthly Art with Heart Challenge and this month’s I will start as an Inspiration Team  Member for Eileen’s Favorite Fall Things Challenge. Yes, you heard me right!!! I was asked to join and of course I said yes!!!


Since I love fairies I decided to create something fun and whimsical with an autumn twist using the 3D Shoe diecut which I cut from Black Mat Board.

I cut from patterned cardstock another shoe diecut and then adhered to the mat board surface, inked with brown chalk ink and then put together.

I laced and tied the shoe some brown twine. 

The image of the girl I found on the Land of Nod blog and the Butterfly Wings are from Altered Pages. I printed both out and then fussy cut and adhered the wings to the back of the girl. Next I stuffed some tissue down into the shoe and glued the girl to the tissue.

 I added dried moss and a mini pine cone around the feet of the little fairy to cover up the tissue paper. Also I adhered lace to the tongue of the shoe along with sequin and mini flat back pearls.

I tied off scalloped edge tulle with metallic floss and bunched up a some seam binding and added around the fairy. I cutting up a fall pick of berries and leaves and also added a couple of flowers and dew drops to finish off this adorable shoe. I can foresee me creating more of these shoes for different occasions.

Be sure to check out this month’s Art with Heart Challenge and link up your Favorite Fall Things project for a chance to win the vintage camper diecut that is shown below.
If you have any questions please let me know.
