Noel Card

Hi everyone! I am back with another quick Christmas card I created using the Lost and Found Christmas Collection from My Mind’s Eye. The card base is 3″x6″ and I cut a Scalloped Rectangle (from Spellbinders) out of gold glittered cardstock .

I adhered a strip of patterned cardstock, along with a banner and a Noel sentiment I cut out from the collection.

The miniature snowflake is actually an ornament that I cut the hanger off of it before adding to the banner. I finished it off with a sequin and a mini flatback pearl.
If you have any questions about this card or products I used please let me know.

Snowflake Noel Card

Hi everyone! I am back with another quick Christmas card. Like the last card I shared this past Monday I used the 6″x6″ Lost and Found Christmas Pad from My Mind’s Eye. I folded a piece of cardstock from the pad to create a 3″x6″ base for my card.

I cut a diecut from the Scalloped Rectangle from Spellbinders, painted a wooden snowflake and once dry adhered all to the front of the card.

I finished off the card with sequins and tiny flat back pearls. Very quick and easy! If you have any questions about this card please let me know.

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

A Little Bit Planner Crazy

Hi everyone! I am back to share a quick post on these cuties I created for my planner. If you are planner nerd like me you are always searching for cute things to dress up your planner and if you are like me you don’t have lots of money to buy everything you see so you have to get creative.

So after I received a planner clip in a monthly kit that I was subscribed to I looked it over and decided I could create my own. All I used was leftover bits and pieces of cardstock, Matboard, paperclips, Mini Freshed Brewed and Vintage Telephone and Typewriter Movers and Shapers Diecuts and this is what I came up with.

After cutting out all the images on Matboard I adhered a paperclip to the back of each one of them and let dry. Next,  I cut two of each image out from cardstock. I like to cover up the back so you don’t see a big glob of glue. Plus it makes it look neater. 🙂 
I cut out more diecuts from cardstock which I fussy cut the indented images from the diecuts like the lids, bans, etc. which I ink and then glued to the diecuts.  Also I added a bit of lace to the dailer of the phone, mini flat back pearls for the keyboard of the typewriter and a mint green jewel to the coffee band. 🙂
I so loved how these turned out and I have more ideas for planner paper clips that I will be creating and sharing in the near future. If you have any questions about these please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Wednesday is awesome and enjoy creating!

Vintage Lady and a Rose

Hi everyone! I am here to share a project I created using Eileen Hull’s Box Diecut and her new flower and leaf diecuts which I don’t have a link to those yet since they haven’t came out  but I will try and come back and add the links when they are released. 🙂
I had actually decorated this box several months ago and the idea I had for it wasn’t going to work out so I put it aside and “sat” on it.

The vintage woman printable I purchased from Eclectic Anthology’s Massive Vintage Victorian Graphics and Clip Art Bundle. I sized the image down, printed off and then fussy cut out…also the butterfly printable is from The Graphic Fairy.

I filled the inside of the box with tissue and then adhering the woman, tulle and moss in the box. The rose I spritzed with Wedding Pink Glimmer Mist, let dry, shaped and glued together before adhering to the moss and tulle in the box. Also I added a little bit of Stickles to the edges of the flower. 

The leaves I used a variety of chalk inks to both sides of the diecut and then I shaped with a stylus and added to the top of the box and to the rose. I adhered flat back pearls and lace to the box to finish it off. If you have any questions about this project please let me know.

To Find the Perfect Tree Train Case

Hi everyone! I am here to share my Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team’s  Art with Heart project for this month using the bottom half of the Train Case diecut.

I cut the bottom from mat board and covered it with Graphic 45’s cardstock from the Gilded Lily collection. I know it isn’t really Christmasy but I wanted more of a wintery/snowman feel for my project since my house is decorated more in those colors. Plus I thought the little girl with the tree was prefect because I can keep this out and enjoy it in the winter months ahead.

The snowman I made from a 1″ and 1 1/2″ SmoothFoam balls. I gessoed and painted with an off white paint and once dry I put together and applied Antique Mod Podge and covered with glitter. I had baked “carrot noses” from Sculpey clay according to directions on the package. I adhered the nose and two dew drops to the snowman and added more glitter to the face. The “arms” are cut from wire which I rolled to make hands and then inserted on either side of the body and then added a little glue to secure.

I filled the inside of the case with tissue paper, adhered the bottle brush trees to that and the snow girl image I printed from the internet. I fussy cut out and adhered to one of the trees and added the snowman. 

The silver snowflake is an ornament that I had bought in a package of snowflakes and this one was deformed so instead of tossing it I decided to use as a back ground of sorts.

I worked tulle in and around the decorations and edges the ends with the gesso and glitter.

I finished off with snowflake sequins, paper flowers and thread. Be sure to hop over to Eileen Hull’s blog and link up your Favorite Things creation and see what the rest of the inspiration team has created!

Friendship Tag and a Winner!

Hi there! I hope everyone had a great weekend. Mine was great since I celebrated my birthday. It was a day spent with my husband which we went out to eat and a little shopping at Michael’s. I was looking for some type of storage containers for my craft room. I bought some snap together kraft paper covered boxes to store my massive amount of cardstock in. Well, after putting both boxes together I am not so sure about them. :-/ A couple of snaps would not snap together for anything…I guess that was why they were on clearance. Oh well, I will make them do since I demolished the packaging. 
Also I want to share the winner from my blog of this past Saturday’s post for the Crafty Card Gallery Blog Hop. 

Drum roll……and the winner is: Sarah Biswabic!!! Congratulations Sarah! Please message me at Mscraftyt@aol.com with your mailing info. Also in the subject line put Blog Hop Winner (I get a ton of emails and might miss it). 

Also I would like to share a tag I created. I had added cardstock to the base but laid it aside and never got back to it. I found it under a pile of cardstock and decided to finish it.

I used some leftover scraps of cardstock, mini pom pom trim, flatback pearls,dew drop and a sequin to the tag and I topped off the tag with a sentiment that I had received in a swap. Lastly I added seam binding and ribbon to the top of the tag. 
If you have any questions about this tag please let me know.

Old Time Farmhouse Christmas

Hi everyone! Can you believe it is only 6 more months and Christmas will be here?!?! Yep, I said the “C” word and in July too. Eek! But I have found out if I don’t start creating some of the things now for Christmas most of the time it won’t get finished since I am so busy with family get togethers, shopping, wrapping presents,etc. and that makes for one insane and crazy gal meaning me. 
So I am here to share a 300 count matchbox I altered using the Farmhouse Christmas Fabric Panel and cardstock from Canvas Corp. The panel I received is an assortment of different old time country farm images. I chose the sled image since it was the perfect size for the top of the matchbox. I spritzed some Tattered Angels Crushed Shells glimmer mist into a bowl and added a couple drops of water to it. Mixed and then painted the sled and once dry I fussy cut out.

Next I used the following cardstock: Tan and Ivory French Script and Lime Green and White Ribbon Stripe to cover the outside and inside of the matchbox.

I added ivory colors trim to both ends, along with buttons, flat back pearls and sequins.

The silver snowflake ornament I bought in a pack but found out when I got home one of the ends of it was cut off. Instead of throwing it away I was able to still use it by covering up the damaged end with the sled and other decorative pieces of thread, tulle, paper holly leaves and such.
The holly leaves I used the Holly and Berries #6 diecut and cut from Lime Green and White Dot Reverse cardstock which I inked and shaped before adhering to the corner of the sled along with another mini snowflake ornament. I also used the Flocked Ivory Damask on White paper for the banner and I wrapped around the center of the matchbox to add a touch old time vintage charm.
There you have it one project finished and ready for Christmas. 🙂 Be sure to stop back by my blog Friday because I will be sharing what I did with the other half of the Farmhouse Christmas Fabric Panel I received. 😉 Also if you have any questions please let me know.
