December 25th Caddy Box

Hi everyone! I’m back today with a box I created as a companion piece for the Jolly Old St. Nicholas Notepad I shared yesterday. You can find that post HERE. I used Eileen Hull’s Card Caddy Diecut along with a couple of other dies/thinlits. So let’s get started!

First, I applied Adhesive Sheets to both sides of a piece of Mat Board and placed patterned cardstock to both sides before cutting out one box and two sides.

To make the sides lay flush on the inside of the box I “peeled” the mat board from the tabs.

I adhered the bottom tab on the side panels to each side of the box.

Next I added adhesive to each of the longer tabs and glued each side of the box into place.

Now for the fun part…adding embellishments! I cut and intertwined two wreaths from the Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits along with raiding my stash of Christmas ephemera and embellishments and decorated one side of the caddy.

I also added a Santa that I had fussy cut from scrapbook paper (I did the same for the notepad) and glued the word “Christmas” to the label that’s included with the Caddy Card Diecut and a poinsettia to finish.

The notepad fits perfectly inside the box! Also as a side note you can create a journal from the Caddy Card Box. Maybe one day I will get around to making one?

Christmas Memories Journal

Hey everyone! I’m back this week to share my project for Eileen Hull and the theme for this month is Season’s Greetings. Next month over in Eileen Hull’s Fan Club we are doing a Comfort and Joy Journal (December Daily) project with prompts and I decided I would at least get my journal cover cut out and decorated. (Trying to be a head of the game) I used the Journal Diecut for my project along with a couple other diecuts.

I cut a file folder down, still folded, to fit on top of the Journal Diecut and placed slightly past the cutting blade of the diecut (so I could have the spine intact) and run through the Diecut Machine.

This is how the cover looks once cut.

I re-enforced the spine on the outside and inside with patterned cardstock.

I adhered double mats of cardstock to the front and back covers and added a double matted banner to the lower corner of the front cover. I applied an Adhesive Sheet to a scrap of cardstock, cut the Christmas sentiment out from the Holiday Blessings Christmas Phrases Diecuts, added the “memories” sticker from the Big Chat Sticker Pad to the banner along with the Christmas diecut. I cut a piece of the puffy wreath sticker to look like it was behind the banner and added to the banner. I cut out the holly and berries from the Funky Festive Diecut Set and placed on the corner of the memories sticker.

I did add elastic cording to the spine and placed some cardstocks, wrapping paper, notebook paper, etc. but that could change. I haven’t decided if I’m going to add more pages or if I will move the pages around. I guess just what and see what I come up with. ūüėČ

If you have any questions about this project please let me know. Also if you haven’t checked out what the rest of Eileen’s Inspiration Team has created you can find those posts HERE and HERE.

Bless the USA Card

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a 4th of July card I created for ClearSnap with you all today! 

I started by inking  an Art Dauber with Peacock Pigment Ink from the Taos Petal Point Collection and ink over front of the Burlap Creative Card. 

I inked the Pledge Allegiance Stamp with Wicked Black Pigment Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of white cardstock.¬†I cut the stamped image to 4″x5″ and roughed up edges of stamped image.¬†Next I inked an art dauber with Chianti Pigment Ink from the Taos Petal Point Collection and inked the edges of stamped image.¬†I rolled the bottom edge of the stamped image under and adhered, added Foam Pop Dots to back and placed to the corner of card base.

I inked the letter “U” of the USA Wood Stamp with Abyss Pigment Ink and the “SA” with Chianti Pigment Ink from the Taos Petal Point Collection and stamped onto a piece of white cardstock. I cut a “v” in the end to create a banner and added foam pop dots to back and place on lower half of card base.

From the Thankful Clear Stamps Set I placed on the MISTI Stamping Tool and inked the “BLESS” stamp with Chianti Pigment Ink and the “HEART” stamp with Abyss Pigment Ink and stamp both onto a piece of white cardstock. I cut the “BLESS” image out and inked an art dauber with Chianti Pigment Ink and inked the edges of the “BLESS” image. I cut with a pair of scissors the “T”, “H” and “E” from the “HEART” image out and adhered above the USA banner. I added foam pop dots to back of “BLESS” image and place above the word THE.


I adhered red tulle, thread, star and a sequin with red pearl to USA banner. I adhered a star and red pearl to top of the pledge allegiance image and added three clear glossy dots to bottom corner of card.

And there you have it! What do you do for the 4th of July? Cookout? Spend the day at the beach or just enjoy the day with family and friends? Also always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
