Happy Camper Jumbo Paperclip

Hi everyone! I’m back with a quick and easy project that I created using Eileen Hull’s 3D Camper Diecut.

I gathered leftover scraps of patterned cardstock, lace and an oversized paperclip to create a jumbo book mark for summer reading or to keep the map marked while traveling. I cut a floral patterned cardstock and a cream colored body of the camper (the cream cardstock I will back the floral body of the camper to make it more sturdy).

I cut out two each of the door and the window and adhered a piece of lace to the window and then adhered the other door and window to cover the back of the each. You wouldn’t have to do this but I wanted to add a little dimension to both diecuts.

I cut two of the rectangular diecuts from the Credit Card Sleeve and Tags Thinlits (retired).

I folded in half and placed around the paperclip and adhered both ends together.

I glued the camper into each tab and adhered the cream colored diecut to the back side of the camper diecut.

I cut out a couple of flowers and leaf sprigs from the Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits, shaped and adhered to the corner of the window. I added a gem to the center of the flower and a thread bow to finish it off. As always if you have any questions about this

Finding Happiness Pocket Notebook

Hi everyone! I want to share my other journal I created for Eileen Hull for her trip to the UK in September using her newest Pocket Notebook Diecut.
First I gathered up an assortment of Maggie Holmes cardstock Collections to create this journal. Then I applied Adhesive Sheets to the front and back of Matboard before placing cardstock on the front and back of the matboard.
I placed the Pocket Notebook Diecut on top of the matboard and run through the Diecut Machine. I cut two covers out.
I lined up the holes on the spine where only three holes showed both on the top and bottom and adhered together. I cut cardstock to fit both the inside and outside of the spine. I used a Crop A Dile to punch holes and set eyelets in the spine. I also added the elastic cording and tied off inside the spine.
I used the Nestled Borders Rectangles Diecut, stickers, pom pom trim, heart and gem and a couple of flowers and a leaf from Eileen’s Flowers and Leaves Journaling Cards Diecuts to decorate the cover of the journal. If you haven’t checked out the rest of the Inspiration Team’s projects on Eileen’s blog you can find those posts: HERE, HERE, HEREHERE and HERE.

Blooming Birthday Folded Card

Hi everyone! I am back again with another fun project that I created using Eileen Hull’s newest Gift Card Folder and Label 2 Diecut but I turned it into a fun little card.

I started this project by placing a piece of White Chipboard on top of the Gift Card Folder and Label #2 Diecut, running it through the Diecut Machine and I folded all four sides of the diecut down. I inked a glass tray with Melon and Wildberry Blends Inks, added water to each ink and placed the diecut in the ink mixture. I covered completely on both sides of diecut. Once I had it covered I removed and let dry.
I placed each flap of diecut into the Damask 2 Embossing Folder and run through the diecut machine. I cut a strip of patterned cardstock 1/2″x8″, wrapped around the folded card and adhered the ends together to create a belly band. Next I placed the heart stamp from the Bible Clear Stamps onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inked with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of Watercolor Paper  I inked two Art Daubers with Salmon and Princess Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and inked the center of the heart with Salmon and the outer edges of the heart with Princess. I fussy cut only the stamped heart out.

I inked the glass tray with Caribbean Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink, added water to the ink and painted a scrap of watercolor paper. Once dry I inked the Simple Dots Rollagraph with Tahiti Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and rolled onto the painted scrap of watercolor paper. I punched a circle from paper and adhered to the belly band. I cut a “v” in a small scrap of decorated watercolor paper and adhered to the circle punch on the belly band along with stamped heart, flower and a leaf from my stash. I also added a gem to center of flower.


I placed the Blooming Birthday stamp and the leaves stamp from the Blooming Floral Diecuts and Stamps onto the MISTI Stamping Tool and inked both with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of watercolor paper. 

I placed the matching diecut over the stamped sentiment and leaves, secured both with washi tape and run through the diecut machine. I inked the glass tray with Inchworm Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink, added water and painted the stamped leaves image. I adhered the sentiment, stamped leaves and flower which was from my stash and added sequins and a gem to center of flower. There you have it a small card that can be added to a birthday present. I think I might try and do some different theme cards just for the fun of it. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Bird and Flowers Altered Bird House

Hi everyone! I am back with another project and this time I altered a birdhouse that I had bought at Target in the One Spot on clearance. It was a Halloween theme birdhouse but I had in mind to do something different with it and this is what I came up with.
I started by tracing the sides and roof onto a piece of paper, I cut out each piece to create a pattern. I then traced the patterns onto watercolor paper and cut each piece out.
I inked the glass tray with Papaya Cream Pigment Ink from the Mermaid Paintbox Collection, added water to the ink and painted all four Watercolor Paper walls and let dry.

I inked an Art Dauber with Papaya Cream Pigment Ink from the Mermaid Paintbox Collection and inked the edges of all the walls. I inked the Ornate Border Molding Mat with Berry Pigment Ink from the Mermaid Paintbox Collection and stamped each of the four walls and once dry adhered each wall to the wooden birdhouse.

I cut four pieces of watercolor paper to fit the roof. And with a scallop edge punch, I punched one side of the watercolor paper, cut another piece of watercolor paper and folded in half. Then I punched both sides with the scallop edge punch. I also punched a Circle from a scrap of watercolor paper. Next I inked a glass tray with Rose Gold Pigment Ink from the Mermaid Paintbox Collection and added water, placed all the roof and circle pieces into the ink mixture and once I got the desired effect I wanted I removed and let dry.

I inked the Simple Dot Rollagraph with Espresso Pigment Ink from the Taos Petal Point Collection and inked all roof pieces. 

I adhered all roof pieces to the wooden birdhouse roof. I also added gems to each scalloped edge of roof and adhered the inked circle punch to front of the birdhouse. I added gems underneath the roof on the front of birdhouse, cut and adhered the lace to the front and back of the roof edge.

I placed the bird and wing diecuts from the Birds and Butterflies Diecuts on top of the Handwritten Creative Card and run through the diecut machine. I cut two of each out of the bird and wing. I reversed the Handwritten Creative Card so bird diecuts could be glued together.

Next I inked art daubers with Gulfstream and Coastal Pigment Inks from the Mermaid Paintbox Collection and inked the bird and both wings diecuts. I placed the wings to each side of bird and adhered the bird to roof. I finished by adhering the bow, pearl sprays, flowers and leaves to bird. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Love You Card

Hi everyone! Can you believe it is already August?!?!? I blinked and summer is almost over! 😳 I’ve been busy these last couple of months and really haven’t had a chance to enjoy time in the pool like I normally do. Oh well, I’m getting ready to change that! 😎 While I am here I want to share a card I created for Momenta!

I had a bunch of leftover cardstock scraps from another project so I decided I would try and come up with something from what I had on hand and this is what I came up with. I started with a 4 1/4″x7 1/4″ folded piece of cardstock from the Momenta Basic Paper Pad (retired).
I cut a piece of cardstock from the Watercolor Metallic Paper Pad to 3 1/2″x7 1/4″ and adhered to the front of the card base. From the same paper pad I cut a Rectangle Diecut from stripped metallic cardstock and adhered to the card base.

Next I placed a 4″ yellow polka dot Watercolor Doily and a scrap of cardstock that I cut a “v” in the end to create a banner onto the card.

I cut “love you” and the decorative heart diecuts from the Romance Pack Cutting Template from cardstock scraps from the Metallic Ink Paper Pad.

I had a scrap of an Intricate Border Diecut leftover that I added to the card along with “love you” sentiment and decorative heart diecuts. I added a fabric flower and leaf from my stash with sequin and gem to the center of the flower and gems to the decorative heart diecut to finish off my card.

Beach Babe House

Hi everyone! I am back this week with a new project for Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team! I used Eileen’s newest diecut, House Ornament Diecut, from the Chapter 3 Collection and I went with a beach theme for my little house using the Tutti Frutti 6’x6″ Paper Pad and the Tutti Frutti Decorative Brads by My Mind’s Eye.

I started by cutting out two house diecuts from Mat Board with a Diecut Machine. With a pair of Scissors I cut one of the bottom flaps off since it won’t be needed. I adhered the house together according to directions on the packaging.

I added White Frost Metallic Lustre to the smaller Vignette Base and let dry while continuing to work on the beach house.

The little window tag from the house diecut I inked with what was leftover on my Art Dauber and I also cut the cross section out from the window. From the Tutti Frutti 6’x6″ Paper Pad I traced and cut out a swimmer on a float and adhered to the back of the window. I made sure the face showed through the window. 
From the same paper pad I cut and adhered patterned paper to the roof but before adhering I inked the edges of the roof with chalk ink. I fussy cut an assortment of flowers and leaves out and adhered to the side of the roof.
I cut three flowers out from the Tag and Pocket Bookmark Diecuts. I slightly crumpled all three flowers and then shaped the edges with a Stylus. I added a brad from the Tutti Frutti Decorative Brads to the flower and adhered a bit of ribbon and yellow thread to the back before gluing to the roof.
I made a small bow with seam binding and covered the center of the bow with a brad from the Tutti Frutti Decorative Brads. I used a small amount of seam binding to tie the roof together and then adhered the bow on top of that. I added a small bow to the window tag and tied that around the seam binding bow. From the computer I printed the sentiment “Beach Babe” which I cut out and adhered to the tag. I fussy cut a small flower and leaves from the paper pad and added to the roof and the corner of the tag. I also added a couple small loops of thread to the corner of the tag.

I cut and adhered patterned paper from the same paper pad to the outside and bottom of the house. I adhered trim to both sides of the roof. I printed the Beach House sentiment and adhered to the front of the house and added blue gems to the top of the roofs on both sides and to either side of the sentiment.

Before adding the swim suit girl from the Tutti Frutti Decorative Brads I changed out the brad and I cut a small flower diecut from the same paper pad using the smallest flower diecut from the Tag and Pocket Bookmark Diecuts and added to the swim suit girl.

I added more fussy cut images from the paper pad to the bottom of the house.
For the life preserver I used a smaller circle punch and punched out the center first and used a larger punch to the punch out the life preserver.

I adhered the base to the bottom of the house and there you have it! Finished! Wouldn’t these make great gifts for small Christmas gifts or add a gift card for a house warming gift. So many possibilities!!! Be sure to stop by Eileen Hull’s blog and see what the rest of the Inspiration Team has been up to. You can find her blog HERE. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Stars and Stripes Patriotic Girl Box

Hi everyone! I’m back this week with an easy 4th of July project I created using the newest Taos Petal Points Collection and the Mermaid Paintbox Collection by ColorBox. I also used some art screens, a rollagraph and Eileen Hull’s Stacking Drawer Diecut to create this fun little patriotic drawer. Lets get started!

I placed White Chipboard on top of Stacking Drawer Box Diecut and placed between cutting plates and run through the Diecut Machine.

I placed the Stars Art Screen on top of the “sleeve” of the Stacking Drawer Box Diecut and inked an Art Dauber with Peacock Pigment Ink from the Taos Petal Point Collection and ink over Stars Art Screen. Once I got the area I was stenciling covered I removed the art screen.

Next I placed the Lattice Art Screen on top of the front of the drawer diecut. I inked an art dauber with Chianti Pigment Ink from the Taos Petal Point Collection. I only inked the front of the “drawer” since that would be the only area seen. Once I completed that I removed the art screen.

I put the sleeve and drawer diecuts together according to directions on the diecut packaging. I cut cording long enough to tie a bow around drawer to keep closed. Next I cut s strip of blue cardstock and adhere around the center of sleeve and adhered red ric rac around blue cardstock.

I inked the Doll Faces Rollagraph with Wicked Black Pigment Dye Ink and rolled onto a piece of Watercolor Paper. I selected the side view face and cut out. I saved the other images for future projects. 😊

I inked the glass tray, added water and painted the face image with the following Inks: Mermaid Paintbox Collection: Face-Papaya Cream, Lips, highlight cheeks and side of nose with Berry. Taos Petal Point: Eyes-Turtle and Hair-Amber. 

I added a blue cardstock mat to the girl image and added Foam Pop Dots to back and place on top of drawer.

I adhered a piece of red tulle behind girl image and added buttons, stars, sequin and red flat back pearls to the top of drawer.  

I also added a cancelled U.S. postage stamp to upper corner of box for some visual fun. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Spring Flowers Medallion

Hi everyone! I’m back today to share my project I created for Momenta! I wanted to create something floral that I could display on my fireplace mantel with all of my other knick knacks and since I had never created a large medallion I thought the Peony Paper Pad would be perfect for this project.

 I started by cutting out six  medallion”panels” from the Large Medallion 3D Diecut. But before running them through the Diecut Machine I applied Adhesive Sheets to the Chipboard  before laying the floral cardstock on top of the chipboard.

I adhered each section to the end of each medallion “panel”.

Then I glued the ends together to create a circle.

Then the worse thing happened when I pushed it down to create the medallion the paper ripped and no it wasn’t a small rip it was big. 😞 I tried to fix it with a hot glue gun and it wouldn’t hold so I used my trusty bottle of Zip Dry Adhesive and it held the center together. I was very determined to make this project work no matter what. A side note the next one I make I will add two more panels for a total of eight instead of six.

I decided to add two big banners to cover the rip of the medallion. I picked the cardstock for the banners from the Metallic Ink Paper Pad. I cut a “v” in the end of both banners before adhering on top of the medallion.
From my own personal doily stash I adhered a 5 1/2″ mint green doily on top of the banners. The second doily is from the 4″ Watercolor Doily which I glued off center of the other the larger doily.
I picked a floral cardstock from the Peony Paper Pad and fussy cut several of the flowers and leaves out and then adhered to the doilies. I also added a cording bow under the lower collection of flowers on the medallion.
Now it is ready for the mantel along with all my other spring decorations.  Need more inspiration? You can find Momenta’s blog HERE. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
