Christmas Time Disc Mini Album

Hi everyone! I am back to share the full reveal of my Christmas Time mini album using Eileen Hull’s newest Book Club Diecut Collection! 

I used the Book and Pages, Trinket Book and Frame Diecut to cut the covers, from Mat Board and the inside pages from the Merry and Bright Cardstock Pad. Also I used four Happy Planner Mini Disc for the binding.

I used Moss Glimmer Mist on the outside and inside of the both covers and once dry I added patterned cardstock, a scalloped circle from the Bookplate, Hinges and Label Collection and the number 25 was cut from the Billboard diecut. I finished off with three square gems and fiber, ribbon and twine on one of the disc.

The inside cover I adhered a two of the corners of the pocket from the Bookmark, Tag and Pocket Collection to create another pocket to hold a label, which I folded, from the Bookplate, Hinges and Label Collection.

I created a belly band which I added a seal diecut to the band and added a label diecut as a tag which can be used as a journaling card or for mini photos. On the opposite page I added the word “moments” from the Floral Arch and Words Collection for a simple embellishment.

The top of the page I added a label and dress it up with a sentiment and sequin. I adhered a wooden joy frame to the bottom corner of the page as a pocket to hold a label diecut and a mini tag.

The opposite page I free handed a tree and inked and glued the star from the Bookplate, Hinges and Label Collection to the top of the tree.

The next two pages are simple I created another belly band which I used an old Christmas present label as a tag and a piece of ric rac and a button dressed up the other page.

I adhered a bookmark to the bottom corner of the page to create a pocket.

I added label diecuts and a Christmas present tag to the bookmark and the inside cover I finished off with patterned cardstock and a Santa from my stash.

Planner Tassels and Planner Clips

Hi everyone! I am back to share  a couple of quick and easy projects for your planner using Eileen Hull’s newest diecuts from the Heartfelt Collection. I created these for Eileen’s booth at CHA/Creativation. 
For the planner tassel I cut a couple of flowers from felt using the Stitchy Flower and Leaf Diecuts and twelve 8 inch strips of ribbon and fiber. Next I gathered all the ribbon and fiber and ran it through a small metal ring (the ring I found in the jewelry section of Hobby Lobby), folded in half and made sure it was even before tying off with thread. I adhered the flowers together with a Dew Drop and then glued on top of the thread. I cut a Ball Chain down and ran through the metal ring and then attached to the planner. 

For the planner clips I used Bird and Butterflies Diecuts and a variety of scraps of felt to cut the diecuts out. For both the bird and butterfly I adhered the pieces together and then glued to the top of a large paper clip. For the bird I added sequin, mini flower, dew drop and for the butterfly I added a scrap of lace, button, sequin and dew drop to finish both off.
All of these project took maybe an hour and that was only because I had to hunt for supplies so I would say you could knock several out if you are more organized than me. 😉
Be sure to hop over to Eileen’s BLOG and see what the Inspiration Team is up to and as always if you have any questions please let me know.

Tsunami Rose Designs: Firmin Riviere Junk Journal

Hi everyone! I am here to share my very first project as a design team member with Tsunami Rose Designs!!!

I used a variety of printables from Tsunami Rose’s etsy shop for this journal. Besides the printables being gorgeous they are ALL 50% off until September 1st…meaning everything in the shop is $2.50 including journaling kits!!! 🙂

For the base of my junk journal I started with a file folder.  I cut the folder down with the front and back being 5 3/4″x8 5/8″ with a 1 1/2″ and 2″ fold over for tuck spots inside and the spine being 1 1/2″ wide.

I adhered leftover cardstock/scrapbook paper to the covers both inside and out along with printables from Collage Cards Set 2 and Ephemera Set 3. I covered the spine with lace. I used a combination of Zip Dry and 3 in 1 adhesives since everything won’t come apart and the 3 in 1 “grabs” and dries quickly. Both adhesives are made by Beacon Adhesives.

This is a view of the cover before folded.

And the inside before the flaps are folded down and adhered to create pockets.

I coffee dyed regular copy paper…my first time. It’s a lot of work but looks great. 🙂

The journal has three signatures with eight papers per signature.

I used the Ephemera Set 3 for these pages. The pull out is actually a small booklet. I folded the printable in half and added coffee dyed notebook paper along with scraps of cardstock, rub ons and some of the printables I fussy cut and added to the pages too. 

I used the Vintage Shipping Tag Collection on these pages along with some other free printables that can be found on the Tsunami Rose Designs blog.

I created pockets out of some of the printables and I added some of the Library Cards 2 Set 3 through out the journal. Also I used a little bag from an order I had received and a coin roll as a page tab.

More free printables from the blog. The one with the kitten I fussy cut and adhered the corners to the tag to create a pocket and then added more printables as tags.

I cut the bottoms off of two of the tags from the Vintage Shipping Tag Collection, the tiny row of roses and fussy cut those out and added to both sides of the decorative gift bag. Then I punched holes in the tags and added fiber to the tops of them.

Even though I used a variety of printables from Tsunami Rose’s etsy shop instead of a kit I think the journal has turned out lovely.

There you have it my very chunky junk journal using what I have from my craft room and printables from Tsunami Rose Designs!  If you want to purchase, check out the blog to see what the other designers are up, like her Facebook page or join the Facebook group all of the links are below.

Entire shop 50% off until Sept. 1 :…

As always if you have any questions about this junk journal please let me know. Also I will try and do a video or periscope at a later date. I need quiet time and the family isn’t cooperating.

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

Create to Remember Journal

Hi everyone! I am here to share a quick little journal I created for Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team. I used the Passport Book Diecut and cut the spine and covers from Mat Board. Then from patterned cardstock I cut four covers for the insides and outsides of the journal, embossed and painted the spine and then adhered everything together.

Also the team is collaborating with Crescent Products this month and I used Rendr Paper for the inside pages on my little journal. 

This paper you can paint on both sides and there is no bleed thru on either side of the paper.

Each of the three signatures has five papers per signature. I used twine to sew in the pages.

The spine I tied off  ribbon, trim and fiber to each of the twine that is holding the pages in the journal.

Now if I want to draw or play with my watercolors I can. The journal doesn’t take up a lot of room and will be easy to carry.

Be sure to hop on over to Eileen’s blog to see the rest of the Inspiration Teams project and if you have any questions about this projects please let me know.

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

Washi Tape Booklet

Hi everyone! I am here to share a quick project I created for the same swap where I altered the cigar box for Lisa. I wanted to make something to hold samples of washi tape and I thought Eileen Hull’s Needle Book was the prefect solution. I cut a Needle Book from mat board, embossed with Floral Tapestry embossing folder and spritzed with Cadillac Pink Glimmer Mist. Once dry I added a piece of cardstock and a printable bird that I had laying around from a pervious project to the front. I punched small holes in the front and back covers and tied off thread in each hole. Also I added a brad to the front to cover the hole.

Inside I adhered a strip of cardstock to the inside covers. I used the packaging from a Sizzix diecut and cut it down slightly smaller that the book and then rounded the corners with my Paper Gator Corner Rounder. I carefully folded the plastic into to create a page and then punch two small holes in the fold. Before sewing the plastic into the book I picked some of my favorite rolls of washi tape wound them off onto the plastic and used a needle and thread and stitched it to the spine of the book.

I finished off with some lace on the cover and fiber on the spine. Here is a helpful hint if you do use packaging it can sometimes be tricky to work with especially when folding in half because it can crack in the middle. So be careful and if you know of a better solution please let me know. 🙂 Also if you do have any questions about this project please let me know.

Travel Journal

Hi everyone! I’m here to share a few photos and a quick video of a travel journal I created for a swap I am in over on Junk Journal Junkies Facebook Group. Lori aka Just a Girl From the Bay from YouTube hosted this swap. If you get a chance please stop by her YouTube channel and check out some of her journals she has created…let me say they are stunning!!!

For this swap we had to use a 6″x9″ clasp envelope as the base for our journal. It also had to have pockets, tuck spots and tags. I kept the inside pretty simple so whoever winds up with my journal will have plenty of room to add photos and places to journal. 

A close up of the flap.

The spine looked so naked that I added ribbon and fiber to it.

Here is a quick flip through video showing the inside. If you have any questions please let me know.

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

Parisian Toilet Paper Roll Mini Album

Hi everyone! This isn’t going to be a very long post as far as talking about each page but if you have any questions about what was used or how it was put together please let me know.  I have LOTS of deadlines going on but I wanted to share a very quick post of a toilet paper roll mini album I created for my swap partner Kris. The swap is over at My Scrap Room and the TP mini had to be done in a Parisian theme with five empty TP rolls, three embellishments per page and a pull out per roll and could be bound anyway we wanted to. I chose to bind mine with the bind it all. I used the My Mind’s Eye: Lost and Found Two collection, bits and pieces I had laying around and printables from Dreamz Etc.
I hope you enjoy! 🙂

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

Beauty of the Heart

Hi everyone! I’m here to share a chunky journal page I created for a Christmas gift for Jean Moore our leader over at the Altered

Lyneen had each of the design team members create a page. We each had to mail our pages to Lyneen which she in turn bound the pages into an adorable chunky book. This is what I came up with. I used product that I had received from a past Mailbox Muse kit.

The saying is a rubber stamp from Unity and the zipper are the only things from my own personal stash I used to finish off this gift for Jean.

You can go here and see each page that was created by each design team member. If you have any questions please let me know.

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