Let Freedom Ring Tag

Hi there! How is everyone? Will you be doing anything special for the 4th of July? Are you staying cool in your neck of the woods? Here, we are in the upper 80’s to low 90’s with not much relief in sight…so glad my husband agreed to getting a swimming pool! Anyways, I want to share a patriotic tag I created for the 4th of July!

I used the July cardstocks from the Authentique: Calendar Collection (retired) to create both sides of this tag. I cut patterned cardstock to 5″x10 1/2″ to create the base for the tag.

The journaling cards/cut-a-parts in the collection I cut apart, adhered some to the base and added Foam Pop Dots to the back of a couple to give dimension to the tag.

I cut and adhered Patriotic Red, White and Blue Ribbon underneath the cut-a-parts, along with thread, stars, sequins and White Pom Pom Trim at the bottom of the tag.

There you have it! If you have questions about this project please let me know.

Reminisce Tiny Book

Hi everyone! I’m back today with a project I actually started last year. I had received this paper pack, Eclectic Charm Collection, from the Blue Fern Studio booth when I went to Creativation in January 2020.

When I got back home I had decided that 6″x6″ paper pack would be prefect to use with the Tiny Book Diecut.

I wanted to make the spine wider on the Tiny Book. So I applied an Adhesive Sheet on both side of a Chipboard and placed the Picturesque (cover) and Friendship (inside) Cardstocks on top of the adhesive sheet and cut each cover with spine separately.

Then Covid happened and I didn’t pick up this project until March 2021. I worked on it between current design team projects and finally finished it…yay!!! I also realized that I didn’t get a photo of how I put both covers together. So I will do my best to explain…I cut a strip of cardstock the width of both spines and adhered and wrapped the excess around both ends of the spine and glued. I cut a strip of cardstock slightly smaller than the inside spine, punched holes on each end. I cut the cardstock from the pack slightly smaller than the cover, folded in half, punched holes in each and sewed to the strip of cardstock for the inside spine. Then I glued the strip to the inside spine and placed binder clips on each end of the spine until everything was completely dried.

There are so many flowers and images from this pack that I fussy cut everything a part. The cover I added Foam Pop Dots to the floral image before placing onto the cover.I cut a couple of the tiny flowers and the leaf sprig from the Folio Page, Pocket and Flowers Thinlits, shaped and added a gem to the center of each flower along with a tiny piece of lace. I cut cording and run under the raised floral image on the cover and glued a piece of patterned cardstock to the back cover to keep the cording in place so I wouldn’t loose it.

The inside pages I added the fussy cut images and some of the pages I created pockets to hold mini tags.

It took me a year but there you have! Be sure to stop by Eileen Hull’s blog and see what the Inspiration and Educator Teams have been up to! You can find the latest blog posts HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE. Also if you have questions about this project please let me know.

Wonderland Tea Party Folio Part 3

Hi everyone! I am back with the final post of the Wonderland Tea Party Folio series. If you missed the first two posts you can find them HERE and HERE.

This page has no pockets or flaps but I used a printable as the main focus and added a leftover bit of decorative cardstock, lace and pom pom trim.

I dug into my stash of Prima flowers which I layered, added a button and used the leaf and leaf sprig thinlits from the Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits to finish off the flower.

I used the other insert that I had cut from the Photo Box Folder Diecut (retired) as an insert. All I added to it was the pointing finger sticker that I had in my stash.

I created this page with an assortment of printables, teacups, ticket stubs and a rabbit. The pocket holds a tag and cut a part and next to that is the Waterfall card that I cut from the Waterfall Card and Tags Thinlits. I glued three of the sides down to create a “pocket” to hold more tags.

This page I created a belly band to hold a little book.

The book I created from an assortment of scraps of cardstock, notebook paper and a page from an Alice in Wonderland story book.

I did take the largest tag thinlit and folded a piece of patterned cardstock in half, placed slightly below the “cut” of the thinlit to create a page to sew into this book.

The last page of the journal I kept pretty simple. I created a double pocket from a printable and dressed it up with more Prima flowers and another leaf thinlit.

I didn’t mention in the previous posts about the closure I “was” going to use on my folio. I had actually punched holes, added brads and strung elastic to hold the journal together but I didn’t go back far enough with the holes on the journal to keep the elastic in place…it kept slipping off. So I adhered a small strip of cardstock to the back of the journal and on the inside I glued a piece of cardstock on three sides to create a pocket. Not what I had originally envisioned but it works!

I hope you have enjoyed following along on the process of this journal and as always if you have questions about this project please let me know.

Wonderland Tea Party Folio Part 2

Hi everyone! I’m back and I want to share a couple pages from my Wonderland Tea Party Folio (part three I will try and share tomorrow). If by chance you missed part one of my folio reveal you can find that post HERE.

I used the Pocket Thinlit from the Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits to create a place to add tags and printables. I only glued it on two sides to create another pocket behind the pocket. I added a scalloped diecut from the Gift Box with Scallop Edges and Label Diecut that I had leftover from a previous project to the fold over on the pocket.

I adhered a couple of leaf sprigs that I had cut from the Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits to a crocheted flower that I had in my stash to dress it up a bit.

I adhered an empty tea bag ( I carefully cut the top of the tea bag to create a pocket) on two sides to create another pocket. I cut out two of the smallest size tags from the Waterfall Card and Tags Thinlits and added re-enforcers to the top of both tags. On one tag I glued the fussy cut image of the Mad Hatter to the top and on the other tag I added an Alice in Wonderland postage stamp from my stash. With this being a tea party theme I had to cut out a few of the teacups from the Teacup and Spoon Diecut and add as tag through out the journal.

The next page I matted with patterned cardstock and adhered a multi teacup printable (fussy cut) to create a pocket to hold the largest tag and teacup diecuts. I also added a teapot with tea time stickers to the bottom corner of the page.

I left the top of this page open so I could add an insert. I cut out two Photo Box Folders Diecuts (retired) (one to be used on an upcoming page) and glued a patterned cardstock, Alice image and oval diecut to one side of the insert. I adhered a fussy cut image to the tag too.

I used another printable that I fussy cut and adhered to create a pocket.

I embossed the tag with Queen of Heart Embossing Folder (retired), lightly inked over the embossed area with chalk ink and added a decorative brad to the top.

The next page I added another printable as a pocket.

I used the King of Spades Embossing Folder (retired) on this tag, lightly inked over the embossed area with a chalk ink and added the crown brad to the top of the tag.

This page has another set of double pockets with lots of tags and journaling cards.

Of course I had to add another teacup diecut to one of the pockets.

I’m going to stop here and will pick up (I hope) tomorrow with the final reveal of my journal. Eileen also has a new blog post today that shares more creativity from her team and you can find that post HERE. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Leprechaun Kisses and Shamrock Wishes Tag

Hi everyone! I wanted to hop on and share a St. Patrick’s Day tag I created using the March cardstock set from the Authentique Calendar Paper Pad (I’m still shopping my stash).

First off I cut a tag out from the Tim Holtz’s Tag Diecut Set (largest diecut). I cut all the cut a parts from the March set in the paper pad out and even when further by fussy cutting certain images out. Next I shaped the shamrocks with a Stylus to add dimension, inked edges of the tag, a decorative diecut (from my stash) and cut a parts before assembling all the pieces together. I added Foam Pop Dots to the back of the leprechaun image and green thread bows before placing onto the tag.

There you have it! Do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? If you do please let me know in comments and as always if you have any questions 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.
