How to Make a Bear Shaker Box

Hi everyone! I am back with a shaker box I created using only the framed pocket from the Frame Pocket Journal Diecut by Eileen Hull. A little back story to go with this project, I had to have my Chapter One projects mailed out to Eileen and in her hands by a certain day. Well, I had this bright idea the night before I was going to mail my projects out that I could make a shaker box. I cut out what was needs but waited until morning so I could photograph and put together in morning light. Let’s just say things didn’t go the way I had planned and I did improvise of the fly just so I could get it to the post office before the day was out. Anyways, let’s get started!

I applied Adhesive Sheets to both sides of the Chipboard, placed patterned cardstock onto both sides, placed the chipboard onto the frame pocket area of the Frame Pocket Journal Diecut and run through the Diecut Machine. I cut two of the frame pockets out.

First, I glued the flap to the inside of the other frame, cut two “windows”coverings from clear packaging and adhered to the inside of each frame, placed sequins in the center of one window, added adhesive around the edges of the bear clipart and placed over the sequin.

On the back of the bear clipart I glued two felt hearts and sprinkled more sequins on top.

I cut a strip of cardstock to cover the flaps of the box and adhered over the flaps.

I glued the sentiment to the corner of the shaker, added two felt hearts and a gem onto the sentiment and adhered Ric Rac around the frame.

The cards that was in the center of the frame pocket I glued one to the bottom of the shaker box.

The back side of the shaker box I added flowers with a gem in the center of each and a leaf to each flower to finish.

I Love You Ma Cherie Artist Trading Card

Hi everyone! Did you know that Eileen Hull has a new set of thinlits called the Library Pocket ATC and Tab Thinlits? If you don’t know what an ATC it stands for it’s short for Artist Trading Card. They are 3.5″ tall by 2.5″ wide. They are a great way to use up scraps and embellishments to create little pieces of art. Also they are fun to trade with other artists. I created a card with no pocket since my ATC is a little on the bulky side. So let’s get started!

I cut out a couple of cards from the Library Pocket ATC and Tab Thinlits. The second blank the plan is to create another one later.

I had a leftover patterned piece of cardstock from another project that I adhered to the center of the card.

I dug into my stash and pulled out an image of teacups. I cut a slit in the top teacup, cut the saucer off and cut out the insides of the handles of both cups. I picked out a couple from the Mini Paper Dolls and placed into the slit at the top teacup.

I glued a circle punch and a decorative heart embellishment onto the card before adhering the mini couple into the cup before adding to the card.

I added layered flowers with a gem, from the Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits, and a leaf to the handle of the teacup. I glued the label to the bottom teacup along with two sequins and I finished by adding Stickles to the heart.

Bridal Shower Love Card

Hi everyone! I’m back with my project this month for Eileen Hull! I know I am¬†cutting it close this month…YIKES!!! ūüė≥

I started by cutting a piece of black cardstock and folded in half to create a 6″x6″ card base. I cut another piece of patterned cardstock slightly smaller than the card base along with flocked paper, part of a doily and lace which I adhered all to the card base. Next I inked my glass tray with the following Blends 2 Inks: Melon, Tutu, Sunshine, Frog, Wildberry and Leaf Inks. You can find these inks in Eileen Hull’s etsy store HERE. I added water to each ink and laid flowers and leaves that I had cut from the Flowers and Leaves¬†Journaling Cards Diecuts ( these I cut from Crinoline Fabric). And once I had them completely covered I removed and let dry.

I had a wooden “love” sentiment in my stash and inked with Coconut Blends 2 Ink (this can be found in Eileen’s etsy shop also).

While the sentiment was still wet I applied Eileen’s new Glistening Glass Molten Dimensions and set with a Heat Tool.

¬†I glued the sentiment to the bottom corner of the card. I added adhesive to the center of each flower and pinched in the center and “fluffed”. I adhered leaves to each flower before added to each side of the love sentiment.

I added a bit of tulle and thread to finish the card. Now all I need to do is add a gift card and my bridal gift is complete! Be sure to stop by Eileen’s blog and see what the rest of the Inspiration Team has been up to! You can find those posts¬†HERE and HERE. As always if you have any questions please let me know.

Love Treat Tote

Hi everyone! I’m back with a quick and easy Valentine’s Day project for ClearSnap!

I started by cutting one side of the Tiny Dots Creative Card off with a Paper Cutter. The final holder/tote should measure 4 1/8″x5 1/2″. Next I measured one inch at the top of the card and measure one inch at the fold of the card and scored both at the one inch marks and folded.

I inked a decorative matboard piece (I used what I had in my stash) edges and outer corners with Rosebud Classic Pigment Ink. Once dry I inked around the edges of the diecut with Watermelon Classic Pigment Ink and let dry. I punched a heart from patterned cardstock, inked the edges of the heart punch with Rosebud Classic Pigment Ink and once dry adhered to the corner of the decorative diecut. I placed the swirl stamp with heart from the Thankful Clear Stamp Set onto the MISTI Stamping Tool and inked with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamp onto the decorative diecut. I added Clear Glitter Glue to the stamped image and let dry.
I placed a piece of an Adhesive Sheet on the back side of gold patterned cardstock and laid the “love” diecut from the Journaling Words Diecuts on the cutting plate plus the gold patterned cardstock and run through the Diecut Machine. I peeled the backing from the adhesive sheet and ¬†placed the “love” diecut on the decorative diecut. ¬†I punched a mini flower from patterned cardstock and place of the stamped heart and added a ¬†Glossy Dot to the center of flower.

I placed candy in a clear bag and place in the candy tote. 

I punched two holes through the tote and clear bag, added ribbon though holes and tied off with a bow.

I finished by adhering the decorative diecut underneath the bow. These really are quick to make and would make great little gifts for your family, co-workers or for a children’s Valentine’s Day party. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Monday is wonderful and enjoy creating!

Canvas Banner of Love Banner

Hi everyone! I am back to share a banner I created for Canvas Corp’s booth at CHA. I used a variety of canvas shapes as follows: Canvas Pennants, Pocket and Tag to create the bases for a love banner. I spattered and sprayed all of the shapes with the following glimmer¬†mists and glam glitter paints: Cadillac Pink, Wedding Pink and Grandma’s House.

I cut a scalloped circles from Lt Pink Burlap and Pink and Ivory Toile Cardstock to add to the various banner shapes.

I cut the letters LOVE from the Black on Kraft Alpa cardstock. and framed with some of the letters with Pink Lemonade Thickstock and a heart was cut from the Pink Lemonade for the center banner too.

I adhered a Vintage Brass Heart along with pink thread, button and dew drop to the corner of the heart.

On a couple of the banners I used White Mini Bags in a fun way to frame some of the letters along with Lace, thread and Jute.

The medallions for some of the banners are cut from Pink and Ivory Ribbon Stripe cardstock which I punched out and added Pink Lemonade Thickstock circles to the centers along with a button and some Jute.
When all the banners where finished I spaced and clipped with a Mini Lt. Pink Clothes Pin to Waxed Cotton White Cord. There you have it a simple Valentine’s Day banner.
Here are a couple of photos that my friend Jennifer took of my banner being displayed in Canvas Corps booth.

If you have any questions about how this banner was made and put together please let me know.

Circus Love

Hi everyone! I found these scalloped cards I cut out from the Sizzix Scallop Card diecut several years ago along with a 4 1/2″x6 1/2″ pad of The Great Circus Company from Paper Studio. The set of Graphic 45 Cling Le Cirque 3 rubber stamps I had purchased at a great price at Tuesday Morning (2.99). Which of course I couldn’t pass up. ūüėČ I couldn’t decide on if I wanted to do Valentine’s Day theme cards or just wanted to keep them generic and finally wound up doing generic theme. So far¬†this is what I came up with…I have a couple of more to do. ūüôā

I stamped and used pastel chalks to color the images and then set the chalk with hairspray. Also I printed the sentiments from the computer and I inked all the edges with brown chalk ink.

I added sequins for a little bit of fun bling to the cards. Plus it is flat and should mail easily. 
If you have any questions about these cards please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is awesome and enjoy creating!

Love Paper Sack Mini Album

Hi everyone!!! I have been sooooo busy creating cards, swaps and design team projects and I just haven’t got around to blogging but I’m now back to share one of my projects I created for a swap I was in on Facebook. We had to altered a 300 count matchbox into a Valentine’s Day theme and add handmade goodies inside of it. Well, I’m going to share the mini album I created using five 4″x6″ paper sacks. I did cut the tops down a little so the mini would fit into the matchbox. I used Baker’s twine to bind it together.

I used bits and pieces of leftover cardstock, scrapbook paper, lace, stickers and images to put this adorable mini together.

I also put together a package of die cuts, stickers, ribbon and dew drops so my swap partner, Norma, could add more to the pages if she wanted to.

Also I shared this mini and matchbox on Maya Roads Facebook page for a challenge they had going on‚Ķthere is a chance to win a prize package. I have my fingers and toes crossed that I win something. ūüôā
Come back Tuesday (treat holder) and Wednesday (matchbox)  to see what I created.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Monday is awesome and enjoy creating!!!
