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.

Embrace Explosion Tiny Book Part Two

Hi everyone! I’m back today with a look inside my tiny book. If you missed my post on how I created the cover you can find it HERE. Also I realized I didn’t explain why I called this book an Explosion Tiny Book in the post from Tuesday. The simple explanation is the book won’t/can’t be closed because I crammed so much into the pages inside.

The inside cover I added a piece of a printable that was leftover from another project, adhered a scrap of lace and ric rac to create a flap and placed embroidered flower stickers to either side of the lace. I also glued leaf sprigs that I had cut from the Folio Page, Pocket and Flowers Thinlits to each flower.

The beige colored lace is from curtains that one of my cats shredded…I wasn’t happy about that…but I just couldn’t throwaway the lace so I used a bit for the page. The floral piece of chipboard is packaging from something I had received as a present. I was going to cut something from it with some of my diecuts but I thought it would make a prefect page. The little house tag I cut from the House Ornament Diecut, painted, added a rub on to the roof and flowers that I shaped and adhered to the corner of the tag. I punched a hole into the page, added the tag to a jump ring with ribbon to the page.

Side note before stitching the pages to the inside of the book I used one of the Border Stitchlits (retired) on the piece of fabric with teal embroidery thread, stitched over the diecutted area and added buttons. On the opposite page was a fussy cut image of a bird’s nest that I watercolored and added a fresh eggs diecut from my stash.

The doily I added a tea cup sticker, ribbon and a couple of chipboard pieces from my stash.

The backside of the doily I adhered fussy cut images of a cat with butterfly wings and a party hat to a jar diecut. The next page is an envelope that I cut down. I decorated with scraps of cardstock, a floral diecut, a tab leftover from me cutting a part a file folder and fussy cut images of women and the best friends sentiment. I added the largest tag from the Waterfall Card and Tags Thinlits to the pocket.

I added patterned cardstock to the page before fussy cutting the bee image, watercoloring and gluing down. I had a leftover piece of the bookbinding from the Bookbinding and Label Thinlits that I adhered to the flap on the next page. I added a tulips cut apart and nature sticker to the top of the binding. I cut the smallest tag out from the Waterfall Card and Tags Thinlits from a leftover piece of acetate and adhered to the bottom half of the binding.

The backside of the binding I glued the scalloped diecut from the Waterfall Card and Tags Thinlits to dress up the back side of the flap. For the opposite page I used another tag that I decorated with flowers from the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Thinlits (retired) and a leaf from the Spring Leaves Diecuts. I also added a cut a part sentiment to the page.

On the back side of the tag I adhered a fussy cut jar printable and glued a flower from the Folio Page, Pocket and Flowers Thinlits and a fussy cut flowers to the jar. On the opposite page (it’s from a candy wrapper) I glued a fussy cut bird to the tab.

The back side of the candy wrapper I created a belly band and added another tag. On the opposite page I adhered scraps of cardstock to the envelope and added the sentiment and women printables to the page.

The envelope I glued cardstock around the “window” and added fussy cut images of flowers. I cut out three of the smallest tag diecuts, decorated and added to the pocket.

I added a spoon sticker and the original sentiment diecut to the doily. On the opposite page I adhered a set of flowers from the Flower, Heart and Soul Diecut (retired) and a leaf from the Spring Leaves Diecuts and a number 8 diecut from my stash to the center of the flower.

On the back side of the fabric I glued trim and pinned a tiny heart tag to the page. On the opposite page I adhered scraps of cardstock, fussy cut flower girl and a mini envelope, and pom pom trim to the page.

I cut out the largest tag (cut down a little to fit the pocket) and adhered a stamped image to the tag and placed inside the pocket on the inside cover. I had originally planned on tying the book closed and had added an eyelet to the back cover so I could run ribbon through but since it is a chunky little monkey of a book I just tied a bow into the eyelet and called it done!

This project definitely didn’t turn out how I had envisioned it would when I first started but I’m sure loving how it “explodes” all over the place.

As always 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.

Bird Folio Journal Reveal Part One

Hi everyone! I’m back with my project for Eileen Hull and the reveal (part one) of the inside of my journal I created using Eileen Hull’s Folio Journal Diecut and Folio Page, Pocket and Flowers Thinlits. If you missed the big Chapter 1 Release Party that Eileen hosted at the beginning of the month I have a blog post with details and more photos and instructions on how I created the cover of my folio journal. You can find that post HERE.

I placed a piece of folded patterned cardstock slightly past the cut line of the page diecut (from the Folio Page, Pocket and Flowers Thinlits), placed washi tape on the thinlit and cardstock before running through the Diecut Machine. I cut three pages/papers per signature for a total of nine pages/papers but today I’m only sharing the first set of pages.

I punched holes and added the claps with brads and then covered with a piece of patterned cardstock. This secures the clasps and brads in place. Side note…I forgot to include this step in the post where I shared how I created the cover….ooops!

I slide the pages up under the elastic cording in the spine and tied ribbon over the elastic before I started decorating the pages. The inside cover I adhered a pocket, shaped and added a flower and leaf to the pocket along with a gem to the center of the flower. The pocket is a great place to store journaling cards or photos. On the first page I added a glassine bag with washi tape. I dug into my stash and found this birdcage die which I adhered to the bag. I placed two tags inside the glassine bag and added flowers and sprigs, one to the tag and one to the corner of the birdcage.

On the inside of the glassine bag I added a bird and shaped punch and more flowers and a sprig along with a piece of trim at the bottom of the bag.

The next several pages I decorated with an assortment of tags, diecuts, stickers, thread, cheese cloth and the flowers, leaf and sprig thinlits. Most of the flowers I added gems or flat back pearls to the center, and I also shaped with a Stylus.

There you have it part one of the inside of my folio journal! If you haven’t been by Eileen’s blog to see what the Inspiration Team has been up to lately you can find this month’s blog posts HERE and HERE. As always if you have any questions about the pages or what products I used (I shopped my stash) please let me know. I’ll do my best to answer.

This Everyday Life Mini Junk Journal

Hi everyone and welcome to my new blog! I’m still working out the kinks of WordPress…so different from blogger…so bare with me. Well, anyway I want to share my project that I created for Eileen Hull this month. The theme for August is junk journals. Some of you might be wondering what is a junk journal? It’s anything! Junk mail, old book pages, old music papers, tags off of clothing, scraps of notebook paper, scrap of cardstock that “you think” might be too small to use, that one lonely sticker that you have no idea what to do with it, etc. The possibilities are endless when it comes to creating a junk journal.

TEDL4

I had actually started this journal in March and Covid happened! I had to go to Nashville for a week and a half and watch my grandson while my son worked from home and my daughter in law was at the time stilling going into the office to work until she was finally sent home to work too. I had forgotten how hard it was to do anything with…at the time…17 month old getting up early and going non-stop.

I started the cover of this journal by cutting a Gift Box with Gift Box Scalloped Edges and Label Diecut from Mat Board.

TEDL1

I measured and cut 1 5/8″ (spine) for both covers and a 1 5/8″ mat board for the additional spine. I adhered both 1 5/8″ spines together to create the first spine and the small flap at the end of the box I adhered the additional 1 5/8″ spine to the flap and the scalloped flap to the other side of the spine. Apologies for no step out photos, I thought I had taken photos of those steps but apparently not. I cut patterned cardstock larger that the journal cover and adhered the edges to the inside and then cut and adhered cardstock to the inside. I decorated both the outside and inside with leftover diecuts, stickers and embellishments. I also added velcro to the flap and cover to keep closed, a decorative eyelet to the spine and a charm to dangle from the spine.

TEDL2

I cut two strips of cardstock 3″ wide and folded every 3″. I adhered the ends of the  two cardstocks together to create a pocket to hold a tag and adhered one of the 3″ squares to the inside of the cover. I forgot to glue ribbon to the inside cover before adhering the accordion style pages to the inside. So my solutions was to “chunk up” the pages so when it is closed the pages don’t sag.

TEDL8

So now for the fun stuff! Decorating the pages! I won’t go into too many details on how I decorated the pages since for the most part are self explanatory.

TEDL10

TEDL11

I used lots of scraps of cardstock and stickers to decorate the pages.

TEDL12

I also created tuck spots throughout the journal.

TEDL13

I used scraps of accounting paper that I cut, folded and stapled together to create tiny journals. To keep those in place I added belly bans to hold them.

TEDL14

TEDL15

TEDL17

I hope you have enjoy my take on what a junk journal is to me.

TEDL6

If you haven’t stopped by Eileen’s blog to see what the rest of the Inspiration Team has created you can find those blog posts HERE and HERE.

Lovely Butterfly Girl Mini Book

Hi everyone! I’m back today with a super quick and easy project using Eileen Hull’s newest Tiny Book Diecut!
I started by applying Adhesive Sheets to the front and back of a piece of Chipboard, adding patterned cardstock to both sides before running through the Diecut Machine
I wrapped the spine with lace and added ric rac trim to both edges of the lace. I added a leftover oval diecut, from my stash, and a little vintage girl with a butterfly sticker that I placed on the back side of the girl to the cover. I adhered a piece of pom pom trim, a sentiment, metal piece, sloppy thread bow and heart gem to  finish the cover.
I cut a couple of sheets of accounting paper to fit the inside of the book. I punched holes in the spine of the paper and cover and sewed the pages together and added to the spine.
I covered the thread where I sewed the pages into the book with ribbon and ran the ribbon underneath  the decorations on the cover to create a closure.
Now how easy was that?!?! This little book is a great way to use up those little scraps of cardstock that you have laying around in your craft room. If you would like to see more creativity stop by Eileen Hull’s blog to see what her Inspiration Team has been up to. You can find those posts HERE, HERE and HERE.

Chunky Mini Vintage Junk Journal

Hi everyone! I had started this project almost two years ago…do you have  several of those types of projects laying around? 😬 I had started this for another design team that I was on but the company was bought out and all the design team members were let go. Soooo I just laid it aside with the intent of finishing it for one of Eileen Hull’s projects. When I did pick it back up to work on it I found out the Needle Book diecut had been retired. Soooo I put it up again until now. One of my goals for this year is to work on my mountain of unfinished projects…along with new projects, of course! 😁  
I started by applying Adhesive Sheets to the front and the back of a piece of Mat Board, placing on top of the diecut and running through the Diecut Machine. I then cut the diecut down the middle of the spine.
I cut another needle book from mat board and I cut it down the middle diecut. I measured 1″ on each side of the fold and cut.
Then I cut another piece of matboard 2″ wide by 3 5/8″ high and adhered each 1″ sides to the matboard. This re-enforces the spine of the needle book.
I adhered each of the covers to each of the flaps of the spine.
I measured on the inside of the spine and marked where I would sew in the signatures and punched small holes on both ends of the spine.
Each signature has 8 pieces of patterned cardstock. I used an abundance of leftover scraps from my stash.
I punched holes in the signatures and sewed each one into the spine and tied off.
Before decorating the inside pages I decorated the cover with a frozen Charlotte that I made with a mold and paper clay. I inked it and added butterfly wings to the back. I added an oval diecut, a flower with leaves before adhering the frozen Charlotte to the cover. 
I added bits of ephemera, scraps of cardstock, diecuts, etc. to the pages of this mini. 

As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
Also I would like to submit this project for the following challenge: 
Mini Album Makers Challenge: February

Eileen Hull/Sizzix: Needle Book Diecut (retired)
Beacon Adhesive: Zip Dry Adhesive
Ephemera
Paper Flowers

Needle

Mini Spring Junk Journal

Hi everyone and happy first day of Spring! I want to share a mini Spring junk journal that I created with all my leftover from my past projects that I created for ColorBox. No need to throw the extras away just add them to another project and that is what I done. 😀
Before I get started in telling how and what I used on each page…four page total…I cut and bound each page with I laid each page on top of the Movers and Shapers Book Binding Diecut with Base Tray (retired) and ran through the Diecut Machine

The cover/page one is cut from Matboard using the Books and Pages, Trinket Box and Frame Diecut and embossed with the Waffle Embossing Folder (retired). I inked the glass tray with Tutu Blends Ink, add water to ink, load paint brush and painted the front of the frame/cover and let dry. I lightly inked over and around the edges of the cover with Blush Metallic Pigment Ink.

I inked two Art Daubers, one with Canary and one with Apricot Inks from the Enchantment Petal Point Inks and ink two matboard flowers with one of each inks. I let both flowers dry. I placed the leaf sprig stamp from the Thankful Clear Stamp Set onto the MISTI Stamping Tool and inked with Mint Ink from the Enchantment Petal Point Inks and stamp onto a piece of Textured White Cardstock. I fussy cut the stamped image out. Next I placed a brad in the center of both flowers and add leaf sprigs to back of flower before adhering to the cover.

The inside cover I inked an Art Dauber with Rose Premium Dye Ink, inked a butterfly punch and once dry I adhered to the inside cover. I also added a gem to butterfly.

The front of page two I inked the Crackle Background Rollagraph (I couldn’t find a link for the rollagraph but found a link for the moulding mat which is the same design just not on a roller) with Top Boss Embossing Stamp Pad and went over the Watercolor Paper page.I applied White Embossing Powder and set with Heat Tool. Once the embossed area was cool to the touch I loaded three Art Daubers with the following inks: Dandelion Premium Dye, Glacier Lake Archival and Rosebud Classic Pigment Inks and randomly inked over the whole page.
I placed the flower stamps from the Thankful Clear Stamps onto the MISTI Stamping Tool and inked two of the flowers with Peony and one flower with Pink Inks from the Enchantment Petal Point Inks and stamped onto a piece of textured white cardstock and fussy cut both out. I punched a leaf sprig from textured white cardstock  and inked the leaves with Mint Ink from the Enchantment Petal Point Inks. I then adhered a leaf and peony colored flower to the bottom corner of page two.

The back side of page two I inked the Butterfly Words Stamp with Glacier Lake Archival Ink and stamp onto a piece of texture white cardstock, fussy cut the stamped image out and adhered to backside of page two. I added a bit of trim and a button to butterfly.

The front of page three I adhered a circle and strip of patterned cardstock to coffee sleeve. I lightly watercolored a flower diecut with Tutu Blends Ink and while still damp, shaped with my hand and let dry. I added a brad to center of flower and two leaves before adhering to page.

The back side of page three I placed textured white cardstock on top of the Long Classic Scalloped Rectangles Diecut and inked an Art Dauber with Sky Blue Ink from Enchantment Petal Point Inks and ink edges of diecut and I adhered to the back of page three. I added a button to the top of the diecut.

For the pull out tag I inked the Tulip Watering Can Stamp with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamp onto a piece of watercolor paper. I inked the glass tray with Shamrock, Citronella and Heather Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks and added water to each ink and paint the tulips and leaves on the watering can. Next I fussy cut the watering can image out and adhered to tag and add clear glitter glue to image. Once dry I placed the tag inside coffee sleeve.

On page four I used a left over piece of the Tiny Dots Creative Card and adhered leftover stamped flowers, leaves and flower punches to corner of page. I added a gem to the center of one flower.

I added four Discs to each of the pages.
