Designer Crafts Connection: Petal Paper Flowers Tag

Hi everyone! I am so excited to be a part of the Designer Crafts Connection group blog hop this month that is sponsored by DCWV. 
DCWV has been a long-time producer of the stack-a set of coordinated papers. Stacks have been made in so many themes and colors over the years. Happy members of the American Crafts family of products, they continue their pursuit of serving the consumer and their crafty needs with new paper stacks releasing several times a year in updated themes and colors. You can find them online and in a variety of craft stores.

Each designer received a package of Petal Paper by DCWV which can be found at Joann’s in store or online. I knew that DCWV produced the stacks but had no idea that they had a line of different colored crepe papers? Who knew? I received a package of yellow and orange petal papers and knew I had to grab some diecuts and make flowers out of this.  
I folded the paper several times and placed the flower diecuts on top of the Petal Paper and run through the diecut machine.
I added a drop of adhesive to the center of each flower diecuts, placed on top of each other and pinched in the center and shaped.
Next I inked up my glass tray and added a little water to each ink. I randomly painted a tag and once dry placed in the Fractal Embossing Folder and run through the diecut machine. I lightly inked over the edges and raised areas of the tag with a blue chalk ink. 
I raided my stash and added a frame diecut and banners I created from cardstock to the tag. I adhered the flowers, leaves and leaf sprigs to the upper and lower corners of the frame diecut.
I also glued thread and cording bows, buttons, a heart shaped gem and a bit of lace to the flowers.
I placed two cute little girls paper dolls to the tag. I also applied an adhesive sheet to the piece of cardstock before cutting out a hello diecut and placing over the little girls. I finished off by adding sequins, pearls and a ribbon bow to the top of the tag.

Eileen Hull: Mushroom Wrapped Journal

Hi everyone! I back today with my Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team project! The challenge for this month was to create a project in a Halloween/Autumn theme. It has been hard to get excited about Fall since the temperatures have been in the upper 80’s to lower 90’s so I decided to use the new DCWV Okey Dokey Paper Pad and go with a black and white leaves, flowers and mushroom theme…you could say kinda Autumn themed. 😁

First I cut the Wrapped Journal Diecut from Mat Board and inked the inside and outside spines with ColorBox Blends Ebony Ink. Once it was dry I splattered ColorBox Blends Coconut and Flagstone onto the outside and inside spines.

I cut the inside cover with one of the black and white speckled cardstock from the Okey Dokey Paper Pad and adhered inside.
From the same paper pad I picked out the black and white line drawings of leaves, flowers and mushroom and cut and adhered to the outside cover. From the internet I found a vintage black and white drawing of a mushroom. I printed and fussy cut the mushroom out. I adhered a piece of patterned cardstock to the smaller cover and the mushroom. On the larger cover I applied a piece of Adhesive Sheet to the back of patterned cardstock. I placed the “Journal” Diecut from the Journaling Words Diecuts and  ran through the diecut machine. I peeled the backing off of the adhesive and added the “Journal” diecut to the cover. I poked a small hole in the center of the spine and ran white elastic cording through the hole and tied off to create a closure. I also strung black elastic cording in the spine to hold journaling notebooks.

I cut the stitching out of a mini notebook. You can find these in packs of three at the Dollar Tree. 

I got four booklets with six pages each from the one mini notebook.
From the Okey Dokey Paper Pad I cut covers for each of the notebooks and then stitched all pages and covers together. I also added my initial  and “Journal” diecut to the cover of two of the notebooks.
I also cut dash boards to cover some of the notebooks and some will hold sticky notes.

I plan on adding more to the journal and will share once I finish those projects. 😀 Also be sure to stop by Eileen Hull’s blog to see the latest projects the Inspiration Team has created. You can find those post HERE and HERE. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

I would also like to submit this project for the following challenge.

Eileen Hull: Season’s Greetings Gift Card Holder

Hi everyone! I am back with a quick gift card holder for this month’s blog hop with DCWV and Eileen Hull! If you are like me and you give a lot of gift cards at Christmas but don’t have them on hand or the wrong theme this House Gift Card Holder is the perfect solution.

I started by cutting two of the house dies from the DCWV Cranberry Christmas Collection. The lighter patterned cardstock I cut a part and adhered to the inside of the card (the cardstock that will be seen once the flip/door is open on the card….back wall and door). Next I glued the sides and once dry I inked the edges.

I added trim, Ric Rac and button to the roof of the house and tied gold metallic thread around the button. From the cut a parts in the same collection I use my circle punch to punch out the snowflake. I adhered the top portion of the circle to the card, added a Dew Drop and sequins. This will keep the flip/door closed. Also from the same cut a parts I added the season’s greeting sentiment to the door and I adhered a dew drop and sequins to create a door knob.
This is a very easy card to create and you can knock out several in an hour!

Also I would like to submit this gift card holder for the following challenge:

Eileen Hull: Enjoy Treat Pocket

Hi everyone! Today I am sharing my project that I created for the Winter Wonderland Blog Hop! The inspiration team from Eileen Hull’s and the DCWV design teams have teamed up this month to create some fun holiday projects!

I started with the Flower Pocket diecut which I cut it from matboard and two sheets of gold patterned cardstock from the Cranberry Christmas Collection from DCWV. I cut out and and put together according to the directions.

Next I cut out four of the smallest Pansy diecuts from the same Cranberry Christmas Collection and shaped  and adhered together.
I punched out an assortment of snowflakes and an Enjoy sentiment from the DCWV DIY Project Stack Gift Decor Collection.  I adhered these along with a bow I made from gold thread and miniature gold Christmas trims.
I added some sequins, Dew Drops and a button to dress up the flower, snowflake and tag.

I filled up the pocket with candy and now it is ready to give as a gift! How easy is that? As always if you have any questions please let me know.

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

Beacon Adhesives: Hello Beautiful Flip Book

Hi everyone! It’s me, Tonya and I am back with another project for the Beacon Adhesive Pop Up!

This time I created a flip book from a variety of products from DCWV and DecoArt. I used the file diecut from the 7gypsies: Gypsy Files Stamp and Diecut Collection (discontinued) and cut four file diecuts from Paint & Create Card Set and the Cut A Part sheet from the Classy Copper Collection.

I dug out several of my punches and using cardstock from the Mixed Media 6″x6″ Pad from DCWV. 

I embellished with leftover scraps from the card and Classy Copper Collection.

The card I cut and created files out of I dipped an empty toilet paper roll into Deco Art Teal Mint paint and randomly stamped circles on the front and back of each file.

Once the paint was dry on the two files I used the little set of water colors and splattered paint on the front and back and let dry.

I punched a small hole in the top of each tab and ran twine though and tied off with a bow.

The little girl images are from the Land of Nob blog which is no longer available. I printed out each and fussy cut out.

I used scraps of lace and trim that I had stashed away along with thread and of course I used my trusty bottle of Zip Dry Adhesive. 🙂

This is the first attempt at trying to make a flip book and I hope you enjoyed it. If you have any questions about this project please let me know.

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

Beacon Adhesives: Stay Classy Beautiful Card

Hi everyone! It’s me Tonya and I am super to excited to be part of the Pop Up with Beacon Adhesive. DCWV, DecoArt and Favor Crafts!

I started with the Classy Copper Premium Pad from DCWV for this card that I created. I cut and folded a piece of patterned cardstock to a 6″x6″ base for the card. I then cut a different  6″x5″ piece of patterned cardstock, distressed the edges, inked and adhered to the base of the card. The pink verbiage cardstock I punched with a decorative punch and added to the base.

The woman image I found on The Land of Nod blog which is no longer there or I would include the link to the blog. I printed the image, fussy cut out but before adhering the image to the base. I cut a scalloped diecut from Beaded Circles from Spellbinders which I glued to the back of a doily and then added off center of the card.

I cut a banner from the copper embossed cardstock (so in love with the copper) and one of the cut a parts and I cut from the pink verbiage cardstock beautiful and used my favorite go to Zip Dry adhesive to glue everything together.

The lace, trim and button I used 3 in 1 adhesive since it is a quick drying glue. No holding everything in place while I waited for it to dry.

I finished off the card with sequins and a dew drop and now it is ready to give to one of my sweet and beautiful friends. If you have any questions about this card please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your day is awesome and enjoy creating!
