Blossom the Hare Tag

Hi everyone! I am back with another quick tag I created using an assortment of leftover diecuts from previous projects. I started with a diecut from the Caddy Bag as the base for my tag. I also used a Beaded Circle and a Scalloped Rectangle Diecuts from Spellbinders (both are retired diecuts).
I went through my collection of scraps of patterned cardstock and cut six slim strips and adhered to the base of the tag. Next I added the beaded circle, scalloped rectangle and a circle diecuts off center of the tag.

I stamped Herbert Hare Stamp onto a piece of watercolor paper, fussy cut out and watercolored with an assortment of Eileen Hull’s ColorBox Ink which can be found HERE I added fussy cut set of roses to the head of the hare and then glued to the corner of the tag.

I stamped the word “blossom” from the Tall Word Collage Set and added it to the circle. I cut a single flower from the Stitchy Flowers & Leaf Diecuts. I shaped, adhered Dew Drop, sequins, thread and I added a small sprig of leaves to the front. I added pom pom trim to finish off the tag.

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

Eileen Hull’s Heartfelt House Pocket Diecut and Sizzix Maker Challenge

Hi everyone! Are you ready for the Sizzix Maker Challenge featuring Eileen Hull’s House Pocket Diecut??? I am!!!

I decided to create a whimsical 3D house. I cut two houses, four eaves from chipboard and two of the “sides” from the Make it 3D Diecut.

I cut another two houses and two 3D sides from cardstock. I inked the edges of the Momenta cardstock before adhering to the chipboard. 

Side note I cut my 3D sides down so I could get my hand inside to hold the tabs down while the adhesive dried and I cut the tabs off of the cardstock since it wouldn’t be seen.

Next I cut a base for my house to sit on from a scrap piece of matboard. I used a mix of  watered down Leaf and Frog ColorBox Blends ink which can be found HERE. Once the base was dry I adhered the house on top of it.

I thought I had taken a before photo of the roof but apparently I didn’t. I cut a 2″ x 7 3/4″ piece of matboard measure and folded at 3 7/8″. I embossed the roof and used a combination of Tattered Leather and Bronze Glimmer Mists on the roof. I splattered Aloha Green Glimmer Glaze to give the roof the look of moss growing on it. After I adhered the roof to the house I added real bits of dried moss and flowers to the roof.

I cut strips from an old sheet of music and adhered around the base of the house. I added moss and I cut flowers from the Stitchy Flowers and Leaf Diecuts, shaped, put together and added buttons and gems to the center of each.

I added pieces of a bingo card to the front and back of the house. Next I lightly added color to the little boy’s cheeks and hair before adhering it and a bird that I cut from the Birds & Butterflies Diecuts to the front of the house. To finish both off I added a crown and party hat.

The back side of the house I cut from cardstock a butterfly from the Bird & Butterflies Diecuts. I adhered it to the house and added a zipper pull to the center of the butterfly along with a bit of flower ribbon.

Bloom Tea Cup

Hi everyone! I am back again with another quick project for Eileen Hull and Stampotique collaboration this month! I cut the 3D Tea Cup die from Matboard and embossed with the Daisy Wreath Embossing Folder.

I forgot to photograph the tea cup while I was inking…oops! 😕 But I used Eileen’s ColorBox  Hydrangea Blends which can be found in a set in her shop on etsy HERE. First I added a dab on ink on a tray and watered down and then painted onto the individual pieces. Once dry I lightly inked over the pieces again with the blend to make the embossing stand out. Once that was completed I put together according to the direction on the packaging.

Next I stamped the Kassa’s Bloom onto a piece of watercolor paper. From the same Colorbox Blends Set that the Hydrangea Blend came from I watered down the Tutu and Wildberry Blends and watercolored the flower. Also I used the Melon Blend and Nutmeg Blends which you can find those HERE and HERE.

Next I fussy cut the flower out and added a combo of Stickles and Icicle Glimmer Glaze to the flower and let dry. I cut out and Glimmer Misted a leaf from the Leaves, Spring Diecut.

I adhered the flower and leaf to the front of the tea cup along with thread and twine.

Felt China Doll Passport Journal

Hi everyone! I am here today to share a project I created for Eileen Hull’s blog! The team this month has teamed up with Kunin to show case their felt. The cool part about this felt is  it is recycled from plastic bottles…you would never know by the texture! 
I created a mini traveler’s notebook from the Passport Diecut for my mom for Mother’s Day.

I started by cutting two covers from white felt, two inside covers and a spine from White Paper Leather. Before adhering all together with Fabri-Tac Adhesive I embossed the paper leather covers with the Waffle Embossing Folder and the spine with the Daisy Wreath Embossing Folder. I forgot to add the paper leather I adhered to the inside of each cover to give the journal just enough rigidness yet flexibility for the journal to expand.

I also cut another cover from felt, cut in half used the Scallops on the Edge Diecut to add a little interest to the pocket. 
I used the following ColorBox Blends (these inks can be found on Eileen Hull’s etsy account HERE) on the cover and pocket: Frog, Leaf, Melon, Tutu and  Sunshine inks by applying color to my glass palette and adding a little water and then I splattered each color of ink separately and let dry.

While the covers and pocket where drying I cut from the Stitchy Flower and Leaf Diecuts a few flowers from the white, peach and olive felt. For the white felt flowers I painted those in Melon and Sunshine and let dry.

I fussy cut this china doll printable that I had purchased from Oxford Impressions (no longer available) and adhered to the cover. I adhered the flowers with gems, pearls and button to the doll.

 I found this micro notebook at Michael’s and thought this would be perfect to add to the inside of the journal. So all I had to do was add elastic cording and add the notebooks.

I had a leftover piece of notebook divider…you know the ones that you can purchase at Target in the Dollar Spot for a dollar? I folded and rounded the corners and added to the center elastic a place to hold sticky notes just in case my mom needs to jot down a reminder. 

In the back pocket I added a gift card to Hobby Lobby and a mini black gel pen but my mom she can use the pocket to receipts, stamps or whatever.

I love how easy it was to use the felt and how well the inks that I used on it turned out!
Be sure to check out Eileen’s blog to see what the Inspiration Team has been up to. You can find past post HERE, HERE and HERE. Also hop on over to Kunin’s blog and see the creativity of their team! As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Tidbits Journal

Hi everyone! I wanted to share my latest journal I created using Eileen Hull’s newest Journal Diecut! I absolutely LOVE this diecut! You can create a planner, mini scrapbook or in my case a glue book to keep my leftover tidbits in. 😊

I cut the cover from Leather Paper and put together according to the directions on the packaging.
I adhered patterned cardstock, doilies and lace to the cover. The Tim Holtz Paper doll I added a set of printable butterfly wings that I had leftover from another project and I inked a Bookplate Diecut with Beach ColorBox Blends, added a printed “tidbits” sentiment and Dew Drops to finish the cover.

I added eyelets to dress up the holes before running elastic trim through to hold store bought notebooks.
I sewed a button to the cover and used cording for the closure. Also as you can see I tried my hand at using a hand held sewing machine to add “sloppy” stitching to the cover. I was going to do more stitching but the sewing machine messed up. 😒

I added four notebooks that I had purchased to the journal and now it is ready for the leftover scraps that I seem to accumulate.

Be sure to hop over to Eileen Hull’s blog for more journal inspiration from the team! You can find those posts HERE and HERE.

Butterfly Angel Journal Part One

Hi everyone! I am here today to share my project this month using Eileen Hull’s ColorBox Blends with the Passport Diecut. The Inspiration Team has shown several different ways to use the ColorBox Blends and you can find those post HERE, HERE and HERE.

For my project I cut the Passport Diecut from Mat Board. I have a large piece of glass that I use as a pallet (very easy to clean afterwards) and I applied Tutu and Wildberry Blends and watered both colors down. Next I taped a doily stencil to the front cover of my book and applied both colors. Once it was dry I removed the stencil and then applied Sunshine Blends to my pallet, watered down and applied a wash to the cover.

The back cover I embossed with the Lace Medallions Embossing Folder. I watered down Wildberry and Sunshine blends and painted the cover.

While letting the covers dry I embossed the spine with Waffle Embossing Folder and inked over it with the Leaf Blends.

Before adhering the covers and spine together I added Stickles over the doily image on the front cover and once dry I splattered with Coconut and Nutmeg Blends. Adhered all pieces together and glued Ric Rac to dress up the edge of the spine.

I had made several frozen Charlotte dolls with Makers Mix but hadn’t found the right project to use them in so I thought this project would be the right time to add one to the cover of my journal. I watered down the Coconut Blends and painted the first coat over the whole doll.

Once the first coat was dry I watered down Nutmeg Blends and applied randomly to the doll and once that was dry I sealed it with Fast Finish Decoupage.

I added fussy cut roses printables, twine and metallic thread to the front cover. Next I adhered butterfly wings to the back of the doll along with a bookplate to finish off the cover.

I tied three papers per signature to the inside of the journal and finished off the spine with a variety of seam binding, ribbon, lace, etc. Later this week I will be sharing the inside of my journal. So be sure to keep an eye out for that blog post. 😊
