Chapter 4 Release Party Blog Hop: Lets Party Album!

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to be a part of Eileen Hull’s Chapter 4 Release Party! There are two new ScoreBoards releases from Eileen Hull and Sizzix! Are you ready for a new 3D Bigz L Tea Cup die? It can be filled with teabags and other assorted goodies or use the Tea Cup cutout on the front of a card there are so many possibilities. Also new is the XL Post Box, a fun little box that goes together in 10 seconds and has a slit in the top to tuck a gift card. You will have fun embellishing in your style to create holiday treats for everyone on your list!

I used the Teacup and Spoon Diecut to create a fun little Birthday Party Album along with several of Eileen’s older diecuts (several that are retired): Banners and Pennants, Bookplate, Hinges and Label, Credit Card Sleeve and Tags and Sweet Treats for You Diecuts.

I cut out six tea cups, backed two with Chipboard to make the front and back covers sturdy, from the Let’s Celebrate Collection. Also most of the collection is double sided.

I also cut out two of the “walls” (lack of a better word) and cut “flaps” off and adhered together to create little pockets for some of the inside pages.

The tea bag diecuts I cut out several and added thread bows and I cut banners out from the Banners and Pennants Diecuts and placed on top of the tea bag diecut and stapled together.

I decorated the cover and inside with a mix of diecuts. I also fussy cut a ton of images from the paper pad and added sequins and pearls to the pages.

I cut several pieces of lace, Ric Rac and fiber and tied all of the teacup together to finish the album. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

To hop along with the Chapter 4 Release you can find the rest of the Inspiration Team and Educators projects 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


Supplies

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

Be my Valentine Coffee Sleeve Album

Hi everyone! I want to share a project from the past with you today. This coffee sleeve album I created was published in the Craft Ideas magazine several years ago. I came across this while looking for something in my craft room and thought why not share (the magazine is no longer around. 😞)
I used four coffee sleeves that I had saved from Starbuck’s coffee runs with my husband. I adhered various rectangle shaped patterned cardstock to each side before using a Crop-A-Dile to punch two holes in each sleeve. I adhered the bottom of each sleeve together.
I deconstructed a Victoria Secrets bag carefully. I cut the ribbon from the handles and used those to tie the sleeves together. 
I used a scalloped diecut and cut a couple from the solid hot pink on the gift bag and placed with paper clips on two of the sleeves.
From my stash of Valentine goodies I added sentiments, used postage stamp, buttons, hearts, etc., to each of the pages.
I punched twelve diecuts out from cardstock and added three to each of the pockets on the sleeves. 
I added an assortment of diecuts and the “Be my Valentine” sentiment to the cover.
I also used paper flowers, a felt heart, buttons, mini gems shaped like hearts and pearl top pins to finish the cover of the album. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know. I also hope this inspire you to use with you have laying around the house to create your own album.

Mini Snowflake Journal

Hi everyone! I’m back this week with my second project of the month for Momenta and I thought since Christmas is oh so close I would create a micro journal with a leftover needle book diecut that I had cut out in leather. Also have you been by Hobby Lobby and seen all of Momenta’s newest Christmas/Holiday diecuts and embossing folders?!?!? If not you need to make a special trip just to get some of these fabulous diecuts and embossing folders!


As I stated I had a leftover needle book diecut that I had cut from leather and I decided I wanted to try and use part of the Let it Snow embossing folder and the snowflake diecut to emboss the leather. I spritzed the areas that I was going to emboss/add diecut with water and placed the bottom edge of the journal and the belly band into the embossing folder (emboss snowflakes only) and run through the Diecut Machine. I completed the same steps for the snowflake diecut too. For people that don’t have access to leather or would like to created this journal out of cardstock the size is 5″x3 5/8″.
In the spine I added a total of four eyelets with the Crop-A-Dil. I ran the Hot Pink Elastic through the eyelet holes and the belly band and tied off.
Then I cut a piece of patterned cardstock from the Peony Paper Pad to 3 1/8″x4″ and several piece of notebook paper slightly smaller than the cover. I punched two holes in the spine and sewed the notebook paper inside of the cover.
I punched out a Scalloped Circle from the same paper pad and adhered to the front of the notebook and cut a snowflake diecut out and added to the scalloped circle along with a sequin and gem.

I also cut four star diecuts out and adhered them back to back at the ends of the twine that I had tied off inside of the notebook and added a gem to the center of each one.
 I hope you have enjoyed this project as much as I enjoyed creating it! If you have any questions please let me know.
Also if you’re not following Momenta on their social networks you can find them on Facebook, Instagram, twitter, YouTube and Pinterest.

Eileen Hull: A Little Boo Mini Album

Hi everyone! I’m back today sharing this little mini Halloween album I created for Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team! 

I started by flattening and cutting a paper towel roll 5 1/2″ in length.

Next I cut one side open and inked the outside and inside of the “spine” with the Purple Chalk Ink from the ColorBox Paintbox Mercantile Chalk.

I adhered Kraft Halloween Cardstock to the front and inside covers of the mini album.

I placed the Scalloped Border Diecut onto the Base Tray (retired) but you can use a Movers and Shapers Shuttle to hold the diecut in place. I placed the closed mini album cover on top of the Scalloped Border Diecut and ran through the diecutting machine.

I gather some scraps of Halloween cardstock from my stash and cut and folded to fit album.

I cut from the following diecuts: Bookplate, Hinges and Label, Bookmark, Tags and PocketCredit Card Sleeve and Tags and Banners and Pennants Diecuts tags, pockets and banners to decorate the pages and the doily. I also added printables and bits of patterned cardstock to the pockets too.

The other side of the pages I added stickers and a bat diecut from my stash.

The cover I adhered a diecut from my stash of extra cut outs.  The little girl I had printed out several of her in different sizes for a past project and I thought she would make a cute addition to the cover. I did cut around her arm so I could slip the jack-o-lateen diecut underneath it. I added googly eyes to the pumpkin and bits of thread. I cut one of the pennants off the banner diecut and created a little hat for the little girl image. I added a Bookplate Diecut with “BOO” stickers and two mini black gems to the bottom of the cover. I took a part a binder clip and added an Owl Charm, some fiber and clipped to the album cover and  finished off with sequin randomly placed. 

I gathered all the pages and stitched inside the album cover.

I couldn’t help myself  but I added more tags and embellishments to the pages.

I cut tags from the Credit Card Sleeve and Tags along with some bits of patterned cardstock, punched a hole in the top of each and put all together with a jack-o-lantern brad and then paperclip to the top of one of the pages. I’m now ready to add mini photos  and journaling of the grand babies.

Be sure to hop on over to hop on over to Eileen Hull’s blog to see what the rest of the Inspiration Team has been up to! You can find the latest blog post HERE. As always if you have any questions please let me know.

I would also like to submit this project for the following challenges:

Word Art Wednesday Challenge: #356-#357
Crafter’s Castle: Challenge #10
Mini Album Makers Challenge: October

Thanks for taking the time to stopping by, hope your Thursday is awesome and enjoy creating!

Five and Dime Mini Album

Hi everyone! I’m back with a fun little album I created with toilet paper rolls, Eileen Hull’s Book Binding Diecut and Amyjdelightful’s Small Town Feel Printable. I was selected to be a “Project Girl” for Amy this month on her instagram page which you can find HERE.

I gathered up an assortment of cardstock, leftover scraps, four of 1.75″ Expander Discs and a pair of scissors and began fussy cutting all of the images out from the printable.

Before I embellished I flattened, added patterned cardstock to each TP roll and used the Book Binding Diecut  before adding pockets and tuck spots to the pages.

I cut a Medallion Diecut out and adhered the 25 cent printable to the center.

The paper bow I received in a swap so I added a flower to the center before embellishing the page.

 I cut some of the tags with the Bookplate, Hinges and Label Diecuts. and added printables and tabs.

On the backside of the tags I adhered some of the printables to create mini pockets to hold tags.

As always if you have any questions regarding this project please let me know.
I would also like to submit this project for the following challenges:

Mini Album Makers Challenge: March Mini
Word Art Wednesday: Challenge #328-#329

24-7-365 Mini Album and Album Holder

Hi everyone! I am here to share the full reveal of my 24-7-365 Mini Album and Album Holder created using Eileen Hull’s newest Book Club Collection, Stamp and Photo Storage Diecut and Card Box, Planner Storage and Organizer Diecut. These diecuts along with five other sets of diecuts will out some time soon! Are you all as excited as I am? These diecuts are so versatile and can be used to create other projects than what they where originally intended for.


I am going to start off first with the holder. I cut it from Mat Board and then cut from cardstock two diecuts, one for the outside and one for the inside.


I inked the edges of the mat board and all the cardstock and then adhered to the mat board.


I put together according to the direction on the packaging.


I also added lace to around the bottom of the holder to finish it off.




Next I cut two of the Stamp & Photo Storage Dies from Mat Board but I decided I was going to be a little different and create a mini album out of this diecut. 😀


This is what the diecuts look like when they are cut out.


These are the edges I cut off to create the base for my mini album cover.


I inked the edges and covered the front and back with cardstock.


I also adhered cardstock inside along with a pocket to the inside cover.


I used a strong adhesive to glue the spine together and after it was dry I punched two holes so I could add pages.


I sewed four pieces of cardstock inside the journal and tied off on the inside.



I adhered lace to the spine after decorating the cover with a couple of fussy cut images and scraps of cardstock.



Next I added seam binding and a key charm to the spine.



Next comes the fun part…decorating the pages!


I used an assortment of leftover embellishments that I had laying around from past projects.




Where I tied off the pages inside and left the thread long I added four of the Stitchy Flower & Leaf Diecuts on the ends.


The pocket that holds the “key to” tag is actually from a iTune gift card. All I  had to do is add a butterfly printable and attach it with a little washi tape.




I also added used postage stamp, coin roller and printable images throughout the journal.


And there you have it! I absolutely LOVE this newest diecut collection that Eileen has designed! If you want to see more hop on over to Eileen’s blog and see what the Inspiration Team has created with this newest collection! You can find the blog HERE.
As always if you have any questions please let me know.
