Wreath Full of Posies Tag

Hi everyone! I want to share a tag that I hadn’t got around to sharing that I created for ColorBox. I had actual started this tag several months ago. If I ink up my glass tray and I have leftover inks I just grab a blank tag and place it in the mixture. If it isn’t covered I continue to place the tag into any leftover ink until I have it completely covered.

The tag has a mix of the following inks on it: Wildberry, Sunshine and Frog Blends Inks. I inked the Simple Dots Rollgraph with Tahiti Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and rolled onto the tag.

I inked the Wreath Wood Stamp with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of Watercolor PaperI started by inking a glass tray with the following Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks, adding water and painting the following parts of the stamped wreath: Inchworm leaves and shade with Moss. Flowers-AsterMulberryBumble BeeSalmon and Princess and let dry. I placed the doily stamp from the Cookies Clear Stamps onto the MISTI Stamping Tool inked the stamp with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of watercolor paper. Next I inked the glass tray with Mint Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink  added water and painted the stamped doily. Once dry I fussy cut the doily out and adhered to tag.
I fussy cut the wreath out adhered to the tag, added sequins and gems to the flowers on the wreath. I finished by adhering a scrap of lace and ric rac to the bottom of the tag. I also added three glossy dots above ric rac and a seam binding bow to top of tag. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Flower Baby Layout

Hi everyone! I’m back today after being gone on vacation! My husband and I spent an extra long weekend at the beach. It was fun but I have to admit that it was as hot if not hotter there in Panama City than at home. All we wanted to do was stay either in the ocean or pool the whole time we were outside…not that was a bad thing to do.😎
I want to share a layout I created from a photo of “Little Miss” when she was around a year old. 

I started by inking my glass tray with Melon and Sunshine Blends Inks , adding water to each ink and placing a 8″x8″ piece of Watercolor Paper ( that I cut down to size) into the ink mixture. Once I had the paper covered I removed and let dry.
I adhered a paper doily with adhesive to the watercolor paper. 
I then placed the Swirl Dot Art Screen onto the watercolor paper and applied Matte Extra Heavy Gel with a Spatula . I removed the art screen and let dry. I inked three scraps of leftover watercolor paper with a mix of water and Sunshine Blends Ink (2 scraps of paper) and Leaf Blends Ink (1 scrap of paper). Once all were dry I adhered two of the watercolor papers horizontally to layout.
 Next I inked the glass tray with Wildberry Blends Ink, added water to the ink, loaded a paint brush with the ink mixture and splattered the watercolor paper. Also I added a piece of ric rac to the watercolor paper.
I inked the Botanical Mini Molding Mat with Leaf Blends Ink and stamped onto the inked Sunshine Blends scrap of watercolor paper. 

Once dry I adhered to the back corner of photo and glued both slightly off center of watercolor paper. 
I placed Crinoline Fabric on the flowers and leaves diecuts from the Book Mark, Tag and PocketJournaling Card, Flowers and Leaves Diecuts and Bookplate, Hinges and Label Diecuts and cut out one set of flowers and a leaf. I inked the glass tray with Wildberry, Frog and Sunshine Blends Inks, added water and placed the flowers in Wildberry and the leaf in Frog and one small flower into the Sunshine ink mixtures. Once completely covered I removed and let dry.

I add a brad to center of the flowers, adhered the leaf to back of the flower and to the lower corner of photo. Next I added several loops of green metallic thread to flower. I also added another flower to the top corner of the photo and adhered sequin to center of the flower. 
I inked a chipboard letter “B” with Sunshine Blends Ink an let dry. Next I inked the letter completely with Top Boss Embossing Stamp Pad Clear, applied Opalescent Embossing Powder to letter and set with a Heat Tool. I added a Foam Dots to back of letter and placed on the corner of the photo.
Even though the quality wasn’t the greatest when I printed out this photo ( I just couldn’t throw it away) I still think the layout turned out pretty cute! As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

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.

Stay Cool Fan

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a quick fan project I created! The weather has been HOT around here…mid to upper 90’s and it’s hard to stay cool so I thought I would create this fun fan using some of my ColorBox inks! 

I started by placing a piece of Watercolor Paper on top of the “Postage Stamp” looking diecut from the Creative Book Pages Diecuts. I placed between the cutting plates and run through the Diecut Machine. I cut off 1/2″ on each side of diecut with a Paper Cutter. I inked the glass tray with Sunshine Blends 2 Ink  added water to ink mixture, placed the diecut in the ink mixture and once completely covered with ink removed and let dry.

I placed the Geometrics Art Screen on top of the diecut, inked an Art Dauber with Tutu Blends 2 Ink and applied over art screen. Then I removed the art screen and let dry.

Next I inked the following letter rubber stamps “stay” with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of patterned cardstock. I cut cardstock to fit the fan and before adhering I cut a small banner from orange cardstock and glued both to fan.

I inked the glass tray with following Blends 2 Inks: Stop, Golden and Sunshine Blends 2 Inks, added water to each ink, laid a scrap of watercolor paper in the ink mixtures. Once the watercolor paper was completely covered I removed and let dry. 

I placed an Adhesive Sheet on the back side of watercolor paper and placed on top of following letter diecuts: C, O (cut 2) and L. Next I placed between cutting plates and run through the diecut machine. I removed the adhesive backing from letter diecuts and placed under the “stay” wording.

I finished by adhering a wooden paddle/stick to the fan. I know it is in no way a substitute for air conditioning but it does help a little to stir a breeze when you are hot and sweaty. Also this would be a fun craft to do with your children too. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Father’s Day Mustache Container

Hi everyone! I am back again today with a quick and easy Father’s Day project that I created using Blends 2 Inks, rubber stamp and a art screen! All you need is an empty container of your choice. 

I started by cleaning a container inside and out. I used an empty M and M container that I have received around Christmas. I also remove the labels on the outside and I used a little Goo Be Gone to get the sticky residue off. I placed Watercolor Paper on top of the Rectangle Border Diecut and placed in between cutting plates and run through the Diecut Machine. I cut out two diecuts to cover the front and back. I placed the lid from the container on top of watercolor paper and traced with a pencil onto the watercolor paper. Next I placed the Disco Art Screen 1 on top of rectangle diecut and loaded an Art Dauber with Beach Blends 2 Ink and applied over the art screen. I loaded another art dauber with Uniform Blends 2 Ink and apply lightly over screen. I completed the same steps for other rectangle diecut and lid and I inked around the edges of both diecuts and circle with Hydrangea Blends 2 Ink

I adhered both diecuts to container and circle to the top of lid.

I inked the Mustaches Wood Stamp with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamped onto White Cardstock  
I cut around the stamped image with a Paper Cutter  and inked an art dauber with Uniform Blends 2 Ink and ink edges of mustache tag. 

I adhered the stamped image to the corner edge of the diecut that is on the container. I made a bow from red seam binding and adhered to the diecut and mustache tag. And last but not least I filled it with yummy snack bars and candy. As always if you have questions about this project please let me know.

Deluxe Cantilever Sewing Box

Hi everyone! I am back today with a project I created to give to my mom for Mother’s Day. Truth be told I had started this project last year…I know bad 😖…but I always seemed to have something come up where I had to put it aside but I hunkered down and finished it finally!

I started by cutting twelve “boxes” and twelve “attachers” from Matboard using the Cantilever Sewing Box Diecut (retired). The sad thing is this sewing box diecut wasn’t retired when I started working on this project and I have looked at several different website to see if I could find a link but I haven’t had any luck.😦

 I did put these together according to the direction but since I doubled the size of the sewing box I adhered four of the bottom boxes together and then sets of two boxes together for a total of four two boxes sets. I added patterned cardstock to the inside and outside of all the boxes.
I inked the “attachers”with Beach Blends Ink and once dry I secured those to each of the box/drawers with a brad.
I embossed the lids with the Waffle Embossing Folder (retired) and inked both with the Beach Blends Ink. Once dry and before adding patterned cardstock to the other sides of the lids I glued a piece of seam binding to the under side of each lid. I then adhered both lids to the top of each box/drawer. On the box/drawer on either side I adhered a piece of seam binding and cover the end that was glued to the box with a button.
I cut two ovals from matboard using the center of oval diecut from the Trinket Box and Frame Book and Pages Diecut. I cut patterned fabric slightly larger than the oval diecuts. I slowly adhered one end of the fabric to the underneath side of the oval and started adding cotton batting and once I got it stuffed like I wanted I adhere the rest of the fabric to the bottom. I completed the same steps for the other oval die. 
I adhered both to the top of each lid to create pin cushions. Next I added pom pom trim around both pin cushions.
I had leftover flowers and leaves from previous projects that I had cut from Journaling Card, Flowers and Leaves Diecuts. The larger flower I used a combo of Simply Sheer Soft Peach and Gold Glimmer Mists and in the center I inked the smaller flower with Wildberry Blends Ink. I added a gem to the center of the flower.
I inked the leaves with Frog and Leaf Blends Inks. I also added thread bows and pearl sprays. 
 I now got to fill it with fun sewing notions! I found the little spools of thread at Family Dollar a couple of years ago and it came with needles and the little thing that helps thread your needles??? What is it called??? 😳 

The tiny pair of scissors I found on clearance at Hobby Lobby and the tomato pin cushion I found at Walmart in the craft and sewing section.

A peek underneath the lid which will make a great place to store lace and trim.

 There you have it! My Mother’s Day project! It took a while to finish but I think my mom will really love it.

Just Fabulous Notebook

Hi everyone! I’m back with a project using Eileen Hull’s newest Notebook Diecut. This project I created for Creativation this past January. I cut the notebook from Matboard and covered with a Fabulous Paper Collection from Authentique. Next I cut from matboard the frame from the Books and Pages, Trinket Box and Frame Diecut. I embossed it with the Waffle Embossing Folder (retired). I inked the frame with a Tutu Blends Ink and once that was dry I lightly went around the edges with Metallic Blush Pigment Ink. Before adhering to the front cover I glued an image of a woman from the Fabulous Paper Collection to the inside of the frame. 

I cut two flowers from the Flowers and Leaves Journaling Cards Diecuts. I shaped and adhered together. I fussy cut flowers and leaves images from scraps of cardstock I had laying around and adhered to the corner of the frame along with the shaped flower. I glued a sequin and glossy dot to the center of the flower. 
I covered the inside with patterned cardstock. Next I punched holes in either end of the spine and threaded elastic thread through the holes and tied off.
I threaded through the holes polka dotted ribbon and before tying off I added a mini tassel.
I decorated the front and back of a mini notebook (these can be purchased at the Dollar Tree and Walmart) with the same Fabulous Paper Collection and added three glossy dots to the cover too.
All I had to do was slide the notebook under the elastic. Easy Peasy! If you would like to see more fun projects from the Inspiration Team hop on over to Eileen Hull’s blog which you can find HERE

You have all my Heart Tag

Hi everyone! I am back with another Valentine’s Day project I created for ClearSnap inks and stamps!

I started by inking a glass tray with Melon Blends Ink, added water and placed the Tag into the ink mixture and let dry. (Side note tag doesn’t have to be completely covered in ink.) I placed a piece of Acetate on top of the larger Hearts Journaling Card Diecut and place between cutting plates before running through the Diecut Machine. I removed all loose hearts so I could use the whole heart diecut as a stencil for my tag. I placed the heart stencil on top of the tag and loaded an Art Dauber with Rosebud Classic Pigment Ink and rub over the heart stencil. Next I loaded another Art Dauber with Watermelon Classic Pigment Ink and randomly rub over the heart stencil and let dry.

Next I inked the Exotic Mini Molding Mat with a mix of Petal Point Fluid Chalk Ink Pad: Soft Pastel- Alabaster and Creamy Brown Chalk Inks and stamp randomly over the tag and let dry.

I placed the row of hearts from the Thankful Clear Stamp Set onto the MISTI Stamping Tool and ink with Leather Premium Dye Ink and stamped onto the bottom corner of the tag. I glued a scrap of lace and flatback pearls underneath stamped image.

I cut three patterned gold paper straws and adhere together, wrapped with cording and tie and adhered to the tag. 

I added five flatback pearls randomly to the stamped hearts.

I inked the Swirl Heart Rubber Stamp with Leather Premium Dye Ink and stamp onto a piece of colored cardstock, fussy cut heart out and adhered to straws. I doubled up two Pop Dots and place under heart.

I added three clear sequins to tag and cut 10 inches of lace, threaded through top and tie off and adhered button to top lace.

As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

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

Love Treat Tote

Hi everyone! I’m back with a quick and easy Valentine’s Day project for ClearSnap!

I started by cutting one side of the Tiny Dots Creative Card off with a Paper Cutter. The final holder/tote should measure 4 1/8″x5 1/2″. Next I measured one inch at the top of the card and measure one inch at the fold of the card and scored both at the one inch marks and folded.

I inked a decorative matboard piece (I used what I had in my stash) edges and outer corners with Rosebud Classic Pigment Ink. Once dry I inked around the edges of the diecut with Watermelon Classic Pigment Ink and let dry. I punched a heart from patterned cardstock, inked the edges of the heart punch with Rosebud Classic Pigment Ink and once dry adhered to the corner of the decorative diecut. I placed the swirl stamp with heart from the Thankful Clear Stamp Set onto the MISTI Stamping Tool and inked with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamp onto the decorative diecut. I added Clear Glitter Glue to the stamped image and let dry.
I placed a piece of an Adhesive Sheet on the back side of gold patterned cardstock and laid the “love” diecut from the Journaling Words Diecuts on the cutting plate plus the gold patterned cardstock and run through the Diecut Machine. I peeled the backing from the adhesive sheet and  placed the “love” diecut on the decorative diecut.  I punched a mini flower from patterned cardstock and place of the stamped heart and added a  Glossy Dot to the center of flower.

I placed candy in a clear bag and place in the candy tote. 

I punched two holes through the tote and clear bag, added ribbon though holes and tied off with a bow.

I finished by adhering the decorative diecut underneath the bow. These really are quick to make and would make great little gifts for your family, co-workers or for a children’s Valentine’s Day party. 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!

I’ll be Home for Christmas Tag

Hi everyone! I’m back today with a quick tag I created for Christmas!


I started by inking a glass tray with Ebony and Coconut Blends and adding water to each ink. I placed the Tag into each ink mixture until the tag was completely covered with ink and once dry I inked a  Damask Cling Stamp with Pewter Ink and stamp onto the tag.



I inked a glass tray with Coconut Blends and add water and loaded a paint brush with the ink mixture, splattered the tag and let dry.


I cut the “I’ll be Home for Christmas” sentiment and fussy cut the truck with tree from the Farmhouse Christmas Stripe on Ivory Cardstock. A side note…push lid in onto the ink pads there will be ink transferred to the inside of the lid. You can paint from what is transferred onto the inside of the lid instead of loading a glass tray with ink. I painted the bed of the truck with Cattail Ink, the cab of the truck with Fruit Punch Ink, the wheel with Graphite Ink and the pine tree with a combination of Shamrock and Citronella Inks.




I inked the edges of the sentiment with Fruit Punch Ink and adhere to tag. I also cut one piece of patterned cardstock to cover the back of the tag, adhered and punch a hole in the top of the tag. Next I placed a piece of glitter cardstock on top of a Tear Drop Circle Diecut and sandwich between cutting pads and run through a diecut machine and adhered to the tag along with the truck. I added clear glitter glue to the pine tree tips in the truck. 


I tied off a 8″ piece of seam binding and 8″ piece of lace to the top of the tag and finished by adding a button on top of the lace and seam binding. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.


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