Tsunami Rose Designs: Traveler’s Notebook

Hi everyone! I am here today to share my design team project for Tsunami Rose Designs.
I decide instead of a typical junk journal I would created a ten pages traveler’s notebook for my dori. I had a leftover file folder that I had used to make a dash board for my planner. I rounded the corners and folded in half to create a 4″x7 1/2″ cover for my traveler’s notebook.

I had leftover printables from the following kits from Tsunami Rose Designs: Tea Party Desserts, Small Mason Jars Collections 1, Decoupage Flowers Set #2 and Printable Ephemera Set # 8 – Vintage Childrens Photos which I used throughout the notebook.

Next I cut ten sheets of grid cardstock to fit the inside of the notebook and sewed to the inside cover.

In the center of the notebook I used one of the envelopes from the Tea Party Desserts as a pocket. Before adhering it together I punched the holes and stitched to the center and then glued together.

I used a variety of leftover scraps of cardstock, embellishments and trim to dress up the pages but tried to not over do it.

I added plenty of tuck spots throughout the notebook. Even though the mason jars are small I enlarged some for larger journaling spots. The Lush Soft tag is off of a pair of jeans I purchase and I thought it would be cute addition to the page.

The back side of the lush soft tag I fussy cut a bouquet of flowers and add tiny gems to the centers of each flower along with Stickles to the leaves for a glittery touch.

I adhered a small mason jar to the corner as a pocket and added several printables for tons of journaling opportunities.

I side view of the notebook not too chunky…just the right size. 🙂

I’ve added it to my dori and now it is ready for me to add lists, notes and journaling to. 

Be sure to hop over to the Tsunami Rose Designs etsy shop and pick up these printables or if you are looking for a something different there is several themes available and the best part they are only $2.50!

Precious Friends

Hi everyone! I am here to share a quick post of a card I created. About a month ago me and the hubby went to the Scrapbook Expo that was in Duluth, Georgia. I had won a pair of tickets to get in free off Instagram from Spellbinders, even though it was a 3 hour drive one way it was so worth it. 🙂 At one of the booths I purchased a decoupage pad from Belle & Boo. I absolutely fell in love with the adorable children images that is in the pad.

The images can be punched out and then put together to create a 3D effect. Since I don’t own pop dots I used the leftovers from rubber stamps that I cut apart instead. It was very easy to put together since everything is numbered. 🙂 I started with a 6″x6″ folded cardstock base and added scraps of patterned and plain cardstock to the surface along with sequins and thread.

The sentiment is from an old Brenda Walton’s Card Quotables Sticker Pad that I had forgotten that I had. I love how quickly the card came together and how cute it looks. 🙂

Also I would like to submit this card from the following challenge: 
If you have any questions about this card please let me know.

Give a Child Wings

Hi everyone! I am here to share a quick project I created for Eileen Hull’s Mixed Media May-hem Challenge for the month of May. I started with a 3″x3″ Burlap Canvas which I sprayed with a combination of the following Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists: Moss, Bahama Blue and Mint Julip and the outer edges I used a Turquoise paint and then let dry.

I cut a Doily and Leaves (Holiday Greenery diecutfrom the Gypsy Moments: Take Our Breath Away cardstock. Also I used up scraps of Gypsy Moments: Express Yourself cardstock  and from the same  Holiday Greenery diecut I cut flowers. I adhered those to the canvas along with other scraps of Maritime: Coquille(shell) and Sirene(mermaid) cardstock.

On one of the edges I used the Lace diecut to add some vintage charm.

The little child is from the Tinted Babies printable. I fussy cut her out and added wings and antennas for some quirky cuteness. I cut the sentiment from the Gypsy Moments: Novel Thought cardstock, adhered to the corner and then finished off with thread and sequins. Oh and I added a little bit of stickles to the wings.
If you have any questions on this project please let me know.

Also craft room update…I am still working on getting things in order along with now remodeling what will be the craft room bathroom. I am super excited on how everything is looking. 😀
