Listen Up Bird Mini Album

Hi everyone! I’m back this week with another project for Eileen Hull. If you didn’t know the theme this month on her blog is Birds, Nests and Eggs and I actually was able to finish a mini album in a bird theme using the Shadow Box Frames Set 1 Thinlits. Last week I shared a Butterfly Boy Tag as a substitute project since this has been a crazy month and wasn’t sure I would be able to crank out a bird project. But I did so let’s get started.

I cut out four of the “frames” in patterned cardstock.

I folded the smallest “tab” on all the “frames” and adhered those together along with the larger tabs to the inside of the larger tab. The larger tab will become the spine of the album.

I glued the fronts and the backs of the frames together to create the front and back covers of the album.

I cut a piece of patterned cardstock the width of the spine and then “butted” the larger tabs together and adhered the strip of patterned cardstock over the tabs. Next I cut to fit and put together the Bookbinding Thinlit and glued onto the inside of the spine. I cut out a total of eight frames, cut the larger tab off of each frames, folded the smaller tab and adhered each frame together to create four pages. Those were then glued to each “hinge” on the inside of the spine.

Now for the fun! I dug into my stash of embellishments along with using the flowers, leaves and sprigs from the Folio Page Pocket and Flower, Shadow Box Elements and Wreath and Snowflakes Thinlits and decorated each page.

I used label diecuts from the Full Size Journal Diecut, Bookplate, Hinges and Label Thinlits (retired) and flowers from theShadow Box Elements Thinlits. Also I stamped the “listen up” sentiment and a label from the Making Plans Stamp Set and used an assortment of embellishments to decorate the cover.

Making Plans Release Party with Eileen Hull

Hi everyone! I’m back with a project I created using Eileen Hull’s newest stamp set called Making Plans with Maker Forte! This set of stamps has so many possibilities! From cards, tags, journals and so much more! I used these stamps on the cover of an unfinished album from a tutorial that Eileen shared on one of her Facebook Lives. Anyways, let’s get started!

I placed an assortment of the label stamps onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inked and stamped onto Cream Cardstock and various patterned scraps of cardstock. I also inked up the “dream a little” sentiment stamp and stamped onto one of the labels I had already stamped. I fussy cut all of the labels out and what I don’t use now will be used in finishing the inside…the plan is to do a part two blog post later…so stay tuned!

I also used an assortment of diecuts/thinlits to decorate the cover: Shadow Box Frames Set 02 Thinlits, Shadow Box Frames Set 01 Thinlits, Shadow Box Elements Thinlits, Mandala Thinlit, Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits and Full Size Journal Diecut. Can you spot the diecuts I used?

The label stamps are so fun to layer! I had a “partial” label diecut from the Extra Large Journal Diecut that I layered with a bookplate and the “dream a little” sentiment, used water splatter rub ons (49 and Market) and more label stamps along with several flowers, leaves gems and thread loops to finish the cover.

Be sure to stop by Eileen’s blog for more creativity from the Inspiration and Educator Teams and details on how you can purchase this stamp set. You can find the blog HERE.

Making a House a Home

Hi everyone! I’m back with the full reveal of my Eileen Hull project that I shared a sneak peek of at the beginning of the month. I used an empty ribbon spool as a jumping off point too create a little home decor piece.

The first thing I did was cut two circles in patterned cardstock from the Ornament Box Diecut and adhered to the top and bottom of the spool. I cut a strip of the same patterned cardstock and adhered around the center of the spool and added flatback pearls to the bottom lip of the inside circle. Next I cut out one wreath from the Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits and added adhesive in random spots to the back of the wreath. Side note… what I will be adding to the top will anchor down the wreath.

I cut out five of the largest trees from the Vintage Truck Box Diecut, cut the trunks off, folded all, adhere the backs of the trees together and lightly ink the edges of the tree.

I cut two houses from the Shadow Box Elements Thinlits, a small section/frame of the Shadow Box Frames Set 02 Thinlit ( measure and cut at the house die roof line), fold and glue together. I backed the inside of both houses before adhering to the front and back of the “frame”. I also folded, cut and glued a strip of cardstock to create a roof.

I adhered both the tree and house to the top of the spool and proceeded to add an assortment of flowers, vines and leaves dies from the following diecuts: Wreath and Snowflakes and Shadow Box Elements Thinlits to the top of the spool.

I also added loops of thread and hand inked cheese cloth along with sequins, gems and flatback pearls to the flowers, leaves and vines.

I cut out the home sentiment and backed with a coordinating patterned cardstock, added Foam Pop Dots to the spool and placed the sentiment onto the front of the spool to finish.

If you haven’t been to Eileen Hull’s blog lately to see what her teams have been up to you can find the latest post HERE. Also on the 26th of April Eileen will have newest release of stamps with Makers Forte so be sure to come back to my blog for my latest project.

Easter Greetings Junk Journal Pages

Hi everyone! I’m back with a quick project I created for my junk journal and I wanted to share with y’all.

I used lots of leftovers from other projects to create this (the page will slide under the elastic in the journal to hold in place). The base of this page(s) was a diecut I had cut in half and used in another project. I folded in half and on the front page I added diecuts, punches and a bunny printable (image found on the internet) to create a cute Easter scene.

I used stickers, flowers and leaf sprig dies from the Folio Page Pocket and Flower Thinlits, scraps of cardstocks and Pom Pom trim to decorate the edge of one of the pages to create.

The back page I created a pocket with stickers decorating the front and added a tag with patterned cardstock and a little bunny printable. This is such a great way to use up scraps and bits and pieces you have laying around!

Everything is Coming Up Daffodils Tag

Hi everyone! It’s been awhile but I’m back with a project for Blank Page Muse! I want to share a tag I created using the daffodil stamp from the Flower and Bird Stitches Art Rubber Stamp Sheet. Let’s get started!

I placed a tag into the Crochet Mandala 3D Embossing Folder and run through the Diecut Machine. Side note…lightly spritz the tag with water before placing in the folder and running through the machine and it will hold the embossed image better and not tear the cardstock.

I placed the daffodil stamp onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inked with Black Ink and stamped onto a piece of Watercolor Paper. I watercolored the image and once dry added a little Stickles to the center of each flower. Next I fussy cut the flower image out and lightly inked over the raised images of the tag with gold ink.

I punched a circle from a green sheet of cardstock from the Cyan Consortium Paper Pack using a 3″ Circle Punch.

From my pile of cardstock scraps I picked out patterned scraps and adhered to the base of the tag. I added Foam Pop Dots to the back of the circle punch and placing onto the tag. I glued two strips of patterned cardstock to the circle before adding the stamped image.

I added sequins, gems and loops of thread to finish off the tag.

Oh, How I Love Flowers Rolodex Card

Hey everyone! I’m back with another quick project I created for the Easter Swap I was in awhile back. I used a Rolodex Diecut that I had purchased from Stampin’ Up! several years ago(retired). But there are Memorydex diecuts that can be used instead and you can find those diecuts HERE and HERE.
I did a lot of layering with what I had on hand in my stash. I started by adding a Medallion Diecut (retired) to the corner of the rolodex card. I know you can barely see it but it was how I built up the layering on the card. 
I cut a chipboard banner in to and placed next to the medallion diecut and the other half of the banner I placed on top of the medallion. I added Foam Pop Dots to the other end of the banner. I backed a flower sticker with cardstock and fussy cut and added behind the banner. I placed flowers and leaves diecuts from my stash also to the card.
I finished off by adding two sentiments from my stash to complete the rolodex card. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Hot Pink Floral Extended Mini Book Case

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a project I created using Eileen Hull’s newest Tiny Book Case Diecut with a fun added “twist”!
After applying an Adhesive Sheets to both sided of a piece of Chipboard I added patterned cardstock to each side, placed the diecut on top and run through the Diecut Machine. As in the photo below you can see where I cut an extra set of “flaps”. 
I adhered the “extra set” of flaps to the front of the case.
I also glued the bottom halves and the lid together.
I cut strips of patterned cardstock the same size as the outside and inside of the case and adhered to give it a cleaner look. 
I cut cording and tied to the closure and added a button, sequin and gem to the center of the closure.

I added an assortment of flowers and leaves, handmade and store bought, to the top of the lid along with lace, cheese cloth, thread bows and pearl sprays.
There you have it! I absolutely LOVE this bookcase diecut and how versatile this diecut is! 
For more inspiration stop by Eileen’s blog to see the latest projects from the rest of team! You can find the latest blog post HERE. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Let it Snow Tag

Hi everyone! I am back after a little break from the holidays with my first project of the new year for Momenta! This tag takes no time to create. Maybe 30 to 45 minutes at the most but lets get started!
I started by placing a tag into the Let it Snow Embossing Folder and run through the Freestyle Die Cutting and Embossing Machine.
Next I inked three Art Daubers with the inks from the Blue to Teal Ombre Pigment Ink Pad and inked over the embossed image and edges of the tag.
I cut one Intricate Snowflakes Diecut from mint cardstock and cut three of the snowflakes from the diecut.
Next I cut one snowflake and two of the tiny star bursts in a light blue cardstock from the Let it Snow Embossing Folder and Diecuts and lightly inked the edges of all the diecuts. 
I placed Foam Pop Dots behind the snowflake and star burst dies before placing onto the tag. 
I adhered the three intricate snowflakes dies randomly on the tag along with sequins and gems.
I finished the tag by tying ribbon into a bow at the top of the tag and called it finished! 
As always if you have questions about this project please let me know.

Count Every Beautiful Thing Tag

Hi everyone! I’m back today and wanted to share this colorful and slightly quirky tag I created using Eileen Hull’s Blends Inks.

I started by inking my glass tray with Sunshine and Melon Blends Inks, adding water and placing the tag into the ink mixture. Once the tag was completely covered I removed and let dry. I inked the Ornate Border Molding Mat with Berry Pigment Ink from the Mermaid Paintbox Collection and randomly inked over the tag.

I inked the Doll Faces Rollagraph with Wicked Black Premium Dye Ink, rolled onto a piece of Watercolor Paper  and cut out the face of girl looking straight ahead. I inked the Butterfly Wooden Stamp with Wicked Black Premium Dye Ink and stamp onto a piece of watercolor paper. Again I inked the glass tray with following Taos Petal Point: Amber and the Mermaid Paintbox Papaya Cream and Berry Inks. I added water and painted the butterfly image with ink mixtures and let dry. I fussy cut the butterfly image out, cut down the middle, added Clear Glitter Glue around outer edge of butterfly and once dry I adhered the butterfly wings, one on either side of the face image. 
I placed Watercolor Paper  on the Long Classic Scalloped Rectangle Large Diecut, placed between the cutting plates and run through the Diecut MachineBefore cleaning the glass tray I randomly placed the scalloped rectangle diecut into the leftover ink mixture from butterfly. Then removed and let dry. Next I inked the glass tray with Sunshine Blends Ink, added water, placed the scalloped rectangle diecut into the ink mixture and once completely covered with  the ink mixture I removed and let dry. I inked the Ornate Border Molding Mat with Amber Pigment Ink from the Taos Petal Point Collection and stamped onto the scalloped rectangles diecut.  

I placed the “Play in the Sun” stamp onto the MISTI Stamping Tool and inked with Wicked Black Premium Dye Ink and stamped onto the lower half of the scalloped rectangle diecut. Next I inked two leaves from a leaf sprig punch with Turtle Pigment Ink and once dry adhered next to the word ‘thing” along with sequins and a gem.

I placed vellum on top of the Delightful Circles Diecuts  placed between cutting plates and run through the diecut machine. I adhered to the backside of the scalloped rectangle diecut and then adhered to the tag.
I added Foam Pop Dots to the back of the butterfly face image before placing above the stamped sentiment.
I finished by adhering lace to the bottom of tag and adding a button, sequin, gem at bottom corner of tag and tying a bow at the top of the tag. I hope you like this tag as much as I enjoyed creating it. Also if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
