Hi everyone! I am super excited to be back as a guest designer for the Robin’s Nest today! For the how to’s and more photos of my card you can find the blog post HERE.
Hi everyone! I am here to share a project I created using diecuts from Eileen Hull’s newest collection that will becoming out in May. Since I love working with flowers diecuts I am so excited about all the new and re-release diecuts coming out!
The Flower Pocket project I actually created last year for display in Eileen’s booth at CHA and I am now able to share it.
I adhered the box together according to the directions and then Mod Podge pieces of an old sewing pattern to the outside and inside of the Flower Pocket. The Heart and Soul Flower Diecut I cut one flower from white cardstock along with a leaf from the Spring Leaves Diecut.
I glued the flower shapes together along with the leaf and then added a vintage button and a Dew Drop to the center of the flower. I also added pom pom trim, Lace, thread and cording to finish off the box.
I foresee adding goodies to these flower boxes and giving them as gifts in the near future. There are so many ways you can use these!
If you would like to catch up on what the Inspiration Team has created you can find the posts HERE and HERE.
If you have any questions about this project please let me know.

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. 😦
Hi everyone! Today Eileen Hull’s and Stampendous’s design teams have teamed up to do Along the Garden Path blog hop! My project is a combination of Eileen Hull’s Make it 3D and Button Jars and Labels dies and Stampendous’s Mushroom Home stamps and Dies. I thought the shorter jar looked like a mushroom stem and would be perfect since I could cut it from matboard.
I started by cutting two of the jars and one of the make it 3D boxes from Matboard, four jars and one of the make it 3D boxes from patterned cardstock. The mushroom top I used the Stampendous’s die and cut four tops from patterned cardstock.
I inked the jars with a tan chalk ink and adhered the patterned cardstock to all of the mat board pieces. I measured a half of an inch up from the bottom on the backside of each jar and made pencil marks.
I adhered each jar piece to the make it 3D box.
I stamped the circles, door and window on varies pieces of patterned cardstock.
I added sequins to the mushroom top, a cord bow, paper flowers and Dew Drops to finish it off.
Now its ready to store my pencils. 🙂 If you have any questions about this project please let me know.
Also be sure to check back each day to see what each team member creates from Eileen Hull and Stampendous design teams!
Thanks for stopping by, hope your day is awesome and enjoy creating!
Hi everyone! I created this card for a magazine call but it wasn’t selected so I thought why not share? 🙂 The base of the card is 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ folded. I cut a piece of patterned cardstock slightly smaller than the base and I embossed with the Floral Tapestry embossing folder and crumpled the edges of a 2″ x 5 1/2″ of cardstock. I also lightly inked the edges and over the embossed image with gold ink.
From the vellum I cut an Ornate Frame Diecut and glued it off center of the 2 inch strip of cardstock and I also added three paper banners and a bit of trim on top of the ornate frame diecut. I cut a 2 inch piece of vintage lace and gathered it in the center and tied off to create a bow. Next I made bows in cording and gold metallic thread and glued it along with the lace bow to the vellum diecut. I then layered two cream colored flowers, added leaves I had in my stash, button, Dew Drops and to two pearlized pins to finish off the frame.
I printed from the computer the Happy Mother’s Day sentiment, inked the edges and adhered to the upper corner of the card. The card still looked “off balance” to me so I added a bit of lace, button and dew drops to the bottom corner to finally finish off this card.
The bright side of this card not being selected for the magazine call is I now have a card ready to give when Mother’s Day rolls around. 🙂
If you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Hi everyone! I am back to share a banner I created for Canvas Corp’s booth at CHA. I used a variety of canvas shapes as follows: Canvas Pennants, Pocket and Tag to create the bases for a love banner. I spattered and sprayed all of the shapes with the following glimmer mists and glam glitter paints: Cadillac Pink, Wedding Pink and Grandma’s House.
I adhered a Vintage Brass Heart along with pink thread, button and dew drop to the corner of the heart.
If you have any questions about how this banner was made and put together please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Saturday is wonderful and enjoy creating!

This card I started with a 5 1/2″x5 1/2″ folded cardbase which I cut a 5″x5″ piece of patterned cardstock, inked the edges and adhered to the cardbase.
Even though the card looks hard to put together it really isn’t. I cut the following pieces of patterned cardstocks 3 1/4″x5″, 2 3/4″x5″ and 2 1/4″x5″ and used a decorative punch (5” side) on each piece and then measured 2 1/2″ of the punched edge (the center) and cut with in a 1/2″ of each piece of cardstock. I then “curled” the cut edges around a pencil and then adhered each piece on top of each other to create a pocket.
I used the Doily diecut to cut a doily from off white piece of cardstock, ink edges and then glued to cardbase and inside the “pocket”.
I cut the big leaves from the Holiday Greenery diecut on off white cardstock. I then inked with a variety of peach, tan, brown, yellow and green chalk ink. I blended the colors together and then wadded and crinkled the leaves up and then shaped the ends with my stylus. I folded down the middle and inked the center with brown ink.
If you have any questions about this card please let me know.
Hi everyone! I am here to share a quick tag that could be used as a gift tag on a present for Father’s Day or it could be used in a journal or a beach layout. I had created this a while back and I am just now getting around to sharing.
I cut 1/4″ off of this tag to make it 3 1/8″x6″ in size and then covered with a sheet of the seahorses from the Maritime 6×6 Paper Pad which is the perfect size for this tag. I inked around the edges and added other papers from the same collection which I distressed and inked too. The “Old Salt” and “Journey” images are from the Maritime Mini Ephemera diecut pack. I fussy cut those from the same diecut and adhered to the tag along with a messy bound bunch of thread.
I fussy cut more images from the paper pad and also added some clear sequins and mini flat back pearls randomly around to give the look of bubbles .
I cut a 6″ piece of Chocolate Waxed Cotton Cord and tied to the top of the tag to finish it off. And there you have it a very simple tag that looks like a lot of time was spent on it but in reality maybe an hour at the most. 🙂
If you have any questions please let me know.
