Field Notes Journal

Hi everyone! After I short break from the holidays I’m back with a project I created for the collaborating between Eileen Hull’s teams and GelPress! This collab has been going on the whole month of January and at the end of this post I will share links for those posts.

I chose to use a cut out I had laying around from the Notebook Diecut-663635(retired).

I gathered up some stencils, acrylic paints along with the Gel Press Printing Plate and Brayer. I’m looking forward to trying the plate and the brayer since this will be the first time using these. So let’s get started!

First I applied dollops of paint to the plate and with the brayer covered the plate with the paint.

I placed the notebook diecut (cover side down), placed a piece of cardstock over the diecut and plate and with the brayer rolled over the diecut and plate. The photo below is just paint that’s been applied to the plate with no stencils. It’s kind of cool how the paint separated on the plate and left negative areas on the notebook diecut.

I applied more paint to the plate and used two stencils, Petal Stencil and Handcut Blossom 12″x12″ Stencil (discontinued), to add texture and a design to the cover.

I had a leftover label from another project from the Full Size Journal Diecut which I applied paint with the plate and brayer. I also used the Field Notes Stamp from the Field Notes Nature Stamp Set (discontinued) and stamped the label. I strung two pieces of elastic cording through the ends of the label and tied.

I slipped the label and elastic around the spine of the notebook and placed two store bought notebooks under the elastic.

From my stash of fussy cut printables I adhered a floral bulb to the cover to complete.

Vintage Artistry Wedding Album

Hi everyone! I’m back this week with a project created for this month’s Eileen Hull project. My best friend’s son was married this past Saturday I decided to use the Full Size Journal Diecut to create an album for all the wedding photos I’m sure that was taken.

I had 12″x12″ Mat Board that I used to create the cover with but if you have a hard time finding mat board that size chipboard is the next best thing. Since the finished journal is around 8 3/4″x6 1/4″ (not counting the spine) I used 8.5″x11″ Adhesive Sheets (so much easier than piecing together 6″x6″ sheets of adhesive) to adhere patterned cardstock to both sides of the mat board before running it through the Diecut Machine. Next I adhered both covers together at the spine and strung the spine with elastic cording.

The colors of the wedding was navy blue, modern gold and cream but I was given the go ahead that I could use muted and soft greens as an accent color. I added an assortment of patterned cardstocks to the cover and placed Foam Pop Dots to the largest diecut from the Reflective Moment Diecut Set (retired) that I cut out. Next I applied glue to three sides of the Vintage Artistry Sage Stitched Frames (retired) and added on top of the frame diecut. I cut out several flowers from the Tattered Flower Garland Diecuts (retired) in White Cardstock and shaped each with a Stylus, adhered on top of each other, added a flat back pearl to the center of each and I cut leaves from the foliage diecuts from the Artistry Sage 12″x12″ Collection. I used this collection through out the album.

I started out with three pages per signatures but as I added cardstock and tucks and flip outs and waterfalls the album bulked up. So I removed the third page from each signatures.

To keep the embellishments to a minimum I used rub ons from the Vintage Sky Collection and an assortment of embossing folders to add a little texture and visual interest.

I used the Waterfall Card and Tags Thinlits and created a place in the back of the album for candid snapshots.

I can tell you the wedding was a beautiful event (even though the ceremony was outside…it was cold). Also the bride loved the album…YAY! That is always stressful to me especially if I’m not sure of the brides style…modern, vintage, etc.

Just Truckin’ Along!

Hi everyone! I’m back with the complete reveal of my truck that I created for Eileen Hull’s Chapter 3 Reveal Party! Remember I shared a sneak peek on the first of July along with a list of team members from the Inspiration and Educator teams. You can find that blog post HERE. But let’s get started on how I created this truck.

First, I applied Adhesive Sheets to both side of the Chipboard and then placed the patterned cardstock (Prima: Garden Fable-retired) on both sides, placed onto the Vintage Truck Diecut and ran through the Diecut Machine.

I adhered the “pocket” to each side of the truck.

Next, I cut out two of the “pockets” from the 3D Camper Diecut.

I cut “notches” in the “flaps’ of the pocket diecuts.

I slowly worked and adhered both flaps to either side of the truck diecuts.

Once all the pockets was glued in place I adhered trim and flatback pearls to finish up the “cab” of the truck.

I glued the bumpers, tail gate and wheels to either side of the truck.

I cut flowers and leaf sprigs from the Folio Page, Pocket and Flowers Thinlits, shaped and adhered, along with several loops of thread and gems in the center of each flower, to the corner of the window.

There you have it! I can’tdiecut wait to make more of these so stay tuned! As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Summer Floral Altered Jumbo Paperclip

Hi everyone! I’m back today with a project I created for Momenta! I created this easy bookmark with several bits and pieces I had leftover from my past Momenta projects.

I started by folding a 3 1/4″x8″ piece of lilac/purple and gold polka dot cardstock in half from the Watercolor Metallic Paper Pad and cutting a “v” in the end of both before sliding one end of the cardstock around a jumbo paperclip. I adhered both ends together  and added a doily from the 2″ Watercolor Doily Collection.

I had several floral scraps leftover from the Peony Paper Pad and part of a diecut leftover from the Floral Cutting Template Diecut. I fussy cut a flower and several leaves out from the leftover scraps. I shaped the leaves before adhering to the backside of the flower. Before adhering the diecut to what I had cut out I inked the leaves with green ink.

I added foam pop dots to the back of the floral mix and placed on the bookmark. I glued sequins and gems to the flowers and leaves and I placed green thread and pearl sprays to the corner. Also from the same leftover diecut I cut out the butterfly and added pink ink to the wings before adhering to the bookmark.
This project was under an hour to complete and would be perfect to give as an add-on gift with a good book. If you need more inspiration go to Momenta which you can find HERE. Also 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.

6″ Mint Green Doily

Vintage Floral Caddy Organizer

Hi everyone! This has been one busy month and I’m just now finishing and able to share my project this month for Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team! The team has been sharing some creative organizing tutorials using Eileen’s diecuts. You can find the past posts for the month HERE, HERE and HERE.


For my project I decided I wanted to create something that could hold all the little booklets of journaling cards that I had accumulated. I added Adhesive Sheets to Mat Board and applied patterned cardstock to the mat board prior to cutting five pockets and two sides from Caddy Bag Diecut.

I adhered all the pockets to each other and the last pocket that would be glued to the side I “flipped” so it would mirror the other side. I covered a piece of mat board with patterned cardstock to fit underneath the bottom of the caddy. This makes it more sturdy.

I covered both sides of the pockets with patterned cardstock, added some decorative diecuts and box corners and it’s finished!

I’ve added some of my journaling cards, couple of pencils and jumbo paper clips and I am ready to create! As always if you have questions about this projects please let me know.

I would also like to submit this project for the following challenges:
