Bunny Basket

Hi everyone! I’m back with my project this month for Eileen Hull! Since Easter is a less than a month away I wanted to show you how to create an Easter basket using the Folio Page Pocket and Flower Thinlits Dies and the Teacup and Spoon Diecut. Lets get started!

From the Folio Page Pocket and Flower Thinlits I cut two of the corner pockets with flaps and from the Teacup and Spoon Die I cut the “pocket” diecut out. I folded the “pocket” in half.

While still folded in half I cut a “v” out on either side of the flap.

While still folded I punched a hole at the top and added an eyelet on either side for the handle.

I adhered the corner pocket dies to each side of the flaps on the “pocket”.

I cut out two corner dies without flaps and glued to the inside of the pocket to cover the tabs and make it look neater.

I tied a 12 inch pipe cleaner to either side of the basket.

I placed Foam Pop Dots to the back of the bunny image and placed onto the front of the basket. Next I shaped flowers and sprig dies, placed a gem in the center of each flower and added to the bunny image.

I tied bits of lace to the handle and a shaped flower and a carrot sticker. Added Easter grass and bite size candies, a little bird and fake eggs to finish this adorable basket.

If you haven’t checked out Eileen Hull’s blog to see what the Inspiration and Educator Teams have been up to lately you can find the latest posts HERE and HERE. As always if you have any questions about this projects please let me know.

Vintage Girls and Flower Page

Hi everyone! I wanted to hop on today and share a page I created using stickers, scraps of cardstock and scrapbook paper I have laying around along with flowers and leave diecuts from the Floral Garden Diecuts Set…those where in my stash of scraps and leftovers.

I started with a 3 3/8″x5 3/8″ patterned cardstock as the base for my page. Next I placed a circle punch that had been embossed onto the center of the base and a sticker down the side (Apologies for the dark looking photo I really thought I had taken a better photo than that.) It’s ok that the sticker is hanging off either side of the base because I will be adhering the finished project to a page in one of the journals that I have created…I’ll share more later on which journal I will be using.

The images of the vintage girls are from a piece of wrapping paper I had started fussy cutting but didn’t finish. I finished fussy cutting those out and then I went through my stash to figure out what scraps and stickers I wanted to include on the page.

I adhered bits of cardstock, banner diecuts, heart punch and diecut images to the base. I added an assortment of patterned paper to the girl images before applying Foam Pop Dots and placing on the base.

I shaped the flowers and leaves diecuts from the Floral Garden Diecuts Set and glued to the page along with thread bows, gems in the center of the flowers and a leftover gem swirl from my stash.

I can’t wait to add this to the first page in my journal! I’m still deciding if I ought to wait and do a complete reveal of what journal I chosen to work with or share again (hint this is a journal that I posted about last year). Also I’m going to add a couple more embellishments to the cover of my journal….to me it looks bland. Let me know in the comments below share now or wait for a completed journal reveal.

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

Faith, Love, Hope and Luck Tag

Hi everyone and happy first day of March! I wanted to share a tag I created using the Authentique Calendar Collection, Mandala Thinlit Diecut and the flowers and leaves from the Folio Page, Pocket and Flower Thinlit Diecuts.

I started by selecting the March cardstocks from the Calendar Collection. I cut the solid double sided green cardstock 5 1/8″x10 1/2″ (size of a #12 tag) and punched a hole in the top of the tag.

From the same collection I cut, inked edges and adhered patterned cardstock to both sides of the tag.

I cut one Mandala Die out of warm white cardstock and glued to the tag. Next I fussy cut the woman with horseshoe and the horseshoe with shamrocks and flowers out and I adhered the smaller horseshoe image to the bottom corner of the tag.

The larger image I shaped the shamrocks, placed Foam Pop Dots to the back and placed onto the tag. I added lace, cording and thread bows along with flowers and sprigs I had cut from the Folio Page, Pocket and Flower Thinlit Dies.

Before adhering the flowers and sprigs to the tag I shaped and added a glossy dot to the center of each flower. I placed foam pop dots to the back of sentiment before adding a cardstock mat and adhering to the side of the tag.

The back side of the tag I fussy cut a woman with harp, Erin Go Bragh sentiment and postage stamps out and adhered to the tag.

I didn’t “bulk up” this side of the tag with many layers. I placed foam pop dots on the back side of the March verbiage before placing at an angle on the tag. I cut and shaped flowers and leaves from the Folio Page, Pocket and Flower Thinlit Dies and adhered to either side of the March sign. I finished by adding a glossy dot to the center of each flower and thread, lace and cheese cloth.

As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know. Also if you want to see more projects using the diecuts I used you can hop over to Eileen Hull’s blog to see what the Inspiration and Educator Teams have been up to. You can find her blog HERE.

Bird Folio Journal Reveal Part One

Hi everyone! I’m back with my project for Eileen Hull and the reveal (part one) of the inside of my journal I created using Eileen Hull’s Folio Journal Diecut and Folio Page, Pocket and Flowers Thinlits. If you missed the big Chapter 1 Release Party that Eileen hosted at the beginning of the month I have a blog post with details and more photos and instructions on how I created the cover of my folio journal. You can find that post HERE.

I placed a piece of folded patterned cardstock slightly past the cut line of the page diecut (from the Folio Page, Pocket and Flowers Thinlits), placed washi tape on the thinlit and cardstock before running through the Diecut Machine. I cut three pages/papers per signature for a total of nine pages/papers but today I’m only sharing the first set of pages.

I punched holes and added the claps with brads and then covered with a piece of patterned cardstock. This secures the clasps and brads in place. Side note…I forgot to include this step in the post where I shared how I created the cover….ooops!

I slide the pages up under the elastic cording in the spine and tied ribbon over the elastic before I started decorating the pages. The inside cover I adhered a pocket, shaped and added a flower and leaf to the pocket along with a gem to the center of the flower. The pocket is a great place to store journaling cards or photos. On the first page I added a glassine bag with washi tape. I dug into my stash and found this birdcage die which I adhered to the bag. I placed two tags inside the glassine bag and added flowers and sprigs, one to the tag and one to the corner of the birdcage.

On the inside of the glassine bag I added a bird and shaped punch and more flowers and a sprig along with a piece of trim at the bottom of the bag.

The next several pages I decorated with an assortment of tags, diecuts, stickers, thread, cheese cloth and the flowers, leaf and sprig thinlits. Most of the flowers I added gems or flat back pearls to the center, and I also shaped with a Stylus.

There you have it part one of the inside of my folio journal! If you haven’t been by Eileen’s blog to see what the Inspiration Team has been up to lately you can find this month’s blog posts HERE and HERE. As always if you have any questions about the pages or what products I used (I shopped my stash) please let me know. I’ll do my best to answer.

Fifteen Minutes or Less Cards

Hi everyone! I’m back with two super quick cards I created! I know if you have been following me for any length of time you know I am the keeper of all paper scraps from my projects and you also know that I generally have several unfinished projects laying around. Since I have Eileen Hull’s newest diecuts, Foilio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits, I thought I would use the flowers from the set to finish these cards. I also used a few others diecuts by Eileen that are retired and some that can still be purchased. This is what I had laying around in my craftroom waiting to be finished.

I started with the kraft and black diamond cardstock, it was a piece of 6″x6″ cardstock that I folded in half to create a 3″x6″ card base, which I had already used scraps of patterned cardstock and a tiny piece of a lace diecut to decorate the front. That’s where I stopped on that card because at the time I really wasn’t sure how I wanted to finish it? I cut out a label from Eileen’s Kitchen Labels Thinlits (retired) and added the Hello diecut that I had leftover from a previous project and adhered to the front of the card.

I cut out two of the leaf sprigs and two of the flowers from the Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits. I shaped the flowers with a Stylus, glued under the hello sentiment and added a flatback pearl to the center of the flower.

The second card I had cut from the Needle Book Diecut (retired). I folded it and added an assortment of patterned cardstock to the front. I had one of the “fringe” flowers (Sweet Treats for You Set Diecuts) leftover from a previous project and cut out several more flowers and leaf sprigs from the Folio Page Set, shaped and adhered to the front of the card.

Also from my stash I had this mini cupcake image that I added with the flowers for something fun.

Do you think you could make these cards in less than 15 minutes ? Or maybe even 10 minutes? Let me know in the comments below.

Also be sure to stop by Eileen Hull’s blog for lots of creativity from her Inspiration and Educator Teams. You can find the latest blog posts HERE and HERE.

Here’s to a New Year Card

Hi everyone! Did you celebrate the new year with family or just kept it low key? I spent the day with my son, daughter in law, grandson and other family members doing a late Christmas. We watched my two year old grandson get excited about presents and it was nice just to be around family for the day. Anyway, I wanted to share a quick card I created for the new year. I used Eileen Hull’s Journal Diecut to create the slimline card base and Authentique Calendar Collection Paper Pad (January set).

I placed a folded Solid Colored Cardstock from the Paper Pad slightly below the score line on the diecut and run through the Diecut Machine. I adhered a mat along with a strip of patterned cardstock and a lace shaped diecut to the base of the card. I matted two of the cut a parts from the paper pad with glittered cardstock. The sentiment I glued to the one side of the card and the angel cut a part I added Foam Pop Dots to the back before placing at an angle next to the sentiment.

I cut several of the Wreath with vines and flowers Diecuts (Spellbinder retired), shaped and adhered under and around the angel image. I also added flat back pearls to the center of the flowers, gold leaves and thread to the card. I finished by matting the Happy New Year sentiment with glitter cardstock and adhering above the angel. I used the seal diecut from the Bookplate, Hinge and Label Diecuts (retired) and cut out in glitter cardstock I also cut the number one out of off white cardstock from the Number Cut and Emboss Diecuts. The number I cut the bottom off and a little of the top before adhering to seal and adding next to the Happy New Year sentiment. I hope this has inspired you to get out your supplies and create something today and as always if you have questions about this project please let me know.

Day 10 of Eileen Hull’s Comfort & Joy Event! Build a Snowman Shaker Page

Hi everyone! We need some fun in our lives so all of us at Eileen Hull Designs put our heads together and came up with an event that you can participate in as much or as little as you’d like. It’s a challenge of sorts and we’d like to see you to make a Holiday Journal for this season using any of Eileen Hull Design’s book dies. Your journal could include activities, photos, recipes, shopping lists, daily thoughts, etc. Really, it can include anything you want; after all, it’s your journal!

Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday between November 27th and December 23rd there will be a post in the Eileen Hull Fan Club from one of Eileen’s team members with a prompt for a journal page. These prompts are meant to get your creative thoughts flowing and give you page ideas for your Holiday Journal. It might be in the form of a blog post, Facebook Live, recorded quick video, or a Facebook post in the group. It’s up to you to take it from there and we can’t wait to see what you come up with, so please share your covers and pages with us in the Eileen Hull Fan Club. If you aren’t a member request to join and be sure to answer the questions so you can be approved.

Today is my day to share a page in my Christmas Memories Journal for day 10 of the Comfort and Joy Event. If you missed the journal blog post you can find all the details on how I created that journal HERE.

Since I live in the South it is rare I get play in the snow or building a snowman. I thought I would created a “build a snowman” shaker page using the Christmas Box Snowman Diecut and Album Page Insert to create a shaker pocket.

I started by cutting off the edge of the album page insert with the holes and folding in half. If you don’t have these type of page inserts you can also use the inserts that baseball and football cards are stored in.

I cut two of the snowmen diecuts out of patterned cardstock and adhered back to back. You can use a double side cardstock but the one I selected was red in color on one side and a red snowman just didn’t look right. I cut out two of each: scarves, carrot noses and arms and assembled the snowman. I added black gems for the eyes and buttons for one side and a fussy cut poinsettia for the other side of the snowman.

I cut and applied Double Sided Adhesive to the inside edge of each pocket.

I added an assortment of clear glitter, sequins and snowflake sequins to the larger pockets before adding the snowman and a snowflake ornament. I peeled the backing from the adhesive and sealed.

The smaller pockets I did the same steps before adding the toboggan and hat to the pockets. The center pocket since it folded in the center I only added glitter and sequins.

I cover the adhesive strip with washi tape. Here’s a tip if the washi tape doesn’t want to stick to the pocket you can add adhesive to keep it in place.

There you have it! I hope you have a chance to make one for yourselves. As always if you have questions please let me know.

If you aren’t a member of Eileen Hull’s Fan Club be sure to answer the questions when you join so you can follow along in the Comfort and Joy Event and see what everyone else in the group is creating! It really is a fun group to be a part of!
