TCW and Eileen Hull Crafty Collaboration Notepad Holder

Hi everyone! I’m back with my project I created for the TCW and Eileen Hull collab! I’m excited to get to try the Ocean Blue Stencil Butter for the first time along with the Petal Mandala Stencil and Uplifting Stamps. I choose the Notepad Diecut to use all these TCW products on so lets get started!

I had painted the outside of the covers for another project but changed my mind and decided to use the Ocean Blue Stencil Butter since it complemented the light green. I secured the stencil to the cover and used a Paint Knife to spread the Stencil Butter over the stencil.

I removed the stencil carefully from the cover.

I placed the stencil over the back cover and rubbed. It left a cool reverse design.

Next I added a blue watercolor splatter to a piece of Watercolor Paper and once dry, inked and stamped one of the butterflies from the Uplifting Stamps onto the paper.

I splattered watered down white and a teal paints on both covers and while that dried I cut a total of four “spines” with a half inch “flap” from the notepad die (sorry I didn’t get photos of that step…I was in a zone). I glued all together and cut to fit the bottom of the diecut. I covered the “spine” with patterned cardstock both inside and out before adhering the butterfly image to the front of the holder.

I finished off by adding a couple notepads to the holder. If you need more inspiration stop by Eileen Hull’s Blog for the latest and be sure to follow TCW on their blog which can be found HERE.

Canvas and Ribbon Pumpkin Wall Hanging

Hi everyone! I’m back with day two with a wall hanging I created for the Gwen Studios Design Team call! Yesterday I shared a wedding frame and if you would to see that project you can find it HERE.

Since Autumn is right around the corner I decided I wanted to create a pumpkin wall hanging.

I had a banner that I had created a few years ago for a booth at Creativation and doesn’t really go with the decor in my home so I decided I would up-cycle one of the canvas banners and create a pumpkin out of it. This is what it looked like after I pulled off all the decorations.

But I’ll be using the backside of the banner for my project.

I started by mixing a little white acrylic paint to some orange acrylic paint and painting the whole banner.

Once dry I placed and taped the Handcut Blossom Stencil to the banner and applied Extra Heavy Gel over the stenciled area.

I removed the stencil and let the banner dry.

Next I cut approximately 2 inches off of a shim (you can find these at a hardware store) to create a stem for the pumpkin. You can also use a popsicle stick or whatever you have on hand.

I applied a stain to the stem and let dry. You can also speed up the process by using a Heat Gun if you have one handy.

While that was drying I cut three 5 inches of each 7/8″ Faux Cow Print Leather Ribbon and 3/8″ Gray Faux Leather Snake Skin Ribbon. I also cut seven 5 inches and one 20 inches of the of the 3/8″ Black Ribbon.

I laid all of the ribbons on top of one of the black ribbons.

I forgot to mention that I cut a “v” in the larger ribbon and the rest I cut at a angle after I tied all together to create a bow.

I adhered the wooden stem, the 20 inches of black ribbon to the pumpkin and lightly inked over the stenciled image with chalk ink.

I glued the bow to the top of the pumpkin to finish off the hanging. As always if you have any 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.

Flower Baby Layout

Hi everyone! I’m back today after being gone on vacation! My husband and I spent an extra long weekend at the beach. It was fun but I have to admit that it was as hot if not hotter there in Panama City than at home. All we wanted to do was stay either in the ocean or pool the whole time we were outside…not that was a bad thing to do.😎
I want to share a layout I created from a photo of “Little Miss” when she was around a year old. 

I started by inking my glass tray with Melon and Sunshine Blends Inks , adding water to each ink and placing a 8″x8″ piece of Watercolor Paper ( that I cut down to size) into the ink mixture. Once I had the paper covered I removed and let dry.
I adhered a paper doily with adhesive to the watercolor paper. 
I then placed the Swirl Dot Art Screen onto the watercolor paper and applied Matte Extra Heavy Gel with a Spatula . I removed the art screen and let dry. I inked three scraps of leftover watercolor paper with a mix of water and Sunshine Blends Ink (2 scraps of paper) and Leaf Blends Ink (1 scrap of paper). Once all were dry I adhered two of the watercolor papers horizontally to layout.
 Next I inked the glass tray with Wildberry Blends Ink, added water to the ink, loaded a paint brush with the ink mixture and splattered the watercolor paper. Also I added a piece of ric rac to the watercolor paper.
I inked the Botanical Mini Molding Mat with Leaf Blends Ink and stamped onto the inked Sunshine Blends scrap of watercolor paper. 

Once dry I adhered to the back corner of photo and glued both slightly off center of watercolor paper. 
I placed Crinoline Fabric on the flowers and leaves diecuts from the Book Mark, Tag and PocketJournaling Card, Flowers and Leaves Diecuts and Bookplate, Hinges and Label Diecuts and cut out one set of flowers and a leaf. I inked the glass tray with Wildberry, Frog and Sunshine Blends Inks, added water and placed the flowers in Wildberry and the leaf in Frog and one small flower into the Sunshine ink mixtures. Once completely covered I removed and let dry.

I add a brad to center of the flowers, adhered the leaf to back of the flower and to the lower corner of photo. Next I added several loops of green metallic thread to flower. I also added another flower to the top corner of the photo and adhered sequin to center of the flower. 
I inked a chipboard letter “B” with Sunshine Blends Ink an let dry. Next I inked the letter completely with Top Boss Embossing Stamp Pad Clear, applied Opalescent Embossing Powder to letter and set with a Heat Tool. I added a Foam Dots to back of letter and placed on the corner of the photo.
Even though the quality wasn’t the greatest when I printed out this photo ( I just couldn’t throw it away) I still think the layout turned out pretty cute! As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Littlest Mermaid in the Sea Tag

Hi everyone! I am back again (third time this week) with another project I created for ColorBox. I absolutely LOVE how this tag turned out! It has me in the mood for a day at the beach! So lets get started!

I started by spritzing a glass tray with Cirtus Tickle Smooch Spritz, adding water and laying the tag into the ink mixture. I removed the tag once completely covered and let dry. Next I inked the glass tray with Caribbean Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink, added water, loaded a paint with ink mixture and apply to tag. Once dry I placed the Swirl Dot Art Screen on top of tag and inked an Art Dauber with Tahiti Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and applied the inked art dauber over the art screen. Once finished I remove the art screen. I inked and art dauber with Capri Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and ink edges and over the surface of tag. Next I applied to the glass tray the following inks: Aster and Cabernet Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink. I loaded a paint brush with the ink mixtures and splattered the tag and let dry. Side note…set glass tray aside with ink mixture for further use. Second side note…while I tried to link all products, such as the new line of inks, I didn’t find all but will try and update as they come available.

I inked the Mimi Mermaid Rubber Stamp with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamp onto a piece of Watercolor Paper with the MISTI Stamping Tool. I placed watercolor paper onto the middle Delightful Circle Diecut. Place between two plated and run through Diecut Machine. I cut a 3 7/8″x1 3/4″ and a 2 1/2″x1″ pieces of watercolor paper and placed both in the Tides Embossing Folder. I placed between plates and run through diecut machine. Now I’m ready to  paint/watercolor everything.
I placed the Delightful Circle Diecut into the set aside Aster Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and cover completely with ink mixture, removed and let dry. I watercolored the Sea Horse image’s body with Cabernet Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and then cleaned the glass tray. 
I inked the glass tray with the following inks: Princess, Caribbean, Tahiti, Tomato, Bumble Bee, Capri and Mint Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks and I added a small amount of water to each ink. I placed the 3 7/8″x 1 3/4″ embossed piece of watercolor paper into the Capri Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and once completely covered remove and let dry.

Next I placed the 2 1/2″x 1″ embossed piece of watercolor paper into the Mint Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and once completely covered I removed and let dry. For the stamped Mermaid image I watercolored with the following inks: Face, arms and upper body…Princess Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink. Lower body/tail…a mix of Caribbean and Tahiti Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks. Seashells and fin of sea horse…Mint Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink. Hair…a mix of Bumble Bee and Tomato Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks. Starfish…Tomato Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink. 

I fussy cut the mermaid and sea horse images out and added clear glitter glue to sea horse fin, seashells, tail and starfish on mermaid. I inked two art daubers, one with Mint and the other with Capri Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks and lightly ink edges of both embossed pieces of watercolor paper and circle diecut. I added foam pop dots to the back of the 3 7/8″x 1 3/4″ embossed pieces of watercolor paper and one side of the circle diecut and placed the embossed paper on top of the tag. I added a little glue to the other side of the circle diecut before laying on top of embossed paper. Next I adhered the 2 1/2″x1″ embossed paper on top of other embossed paper and circle diecut. I adhered the mermaid image on top of all pieces.

I glued the sea horse to bottom corner of tag and added three gems next to the sea horse. Next I randomly adhere sequins to tag.

I finished the tag by cutting two 10 inch pieces of seam binding. I ran the seam binding through  the hole at the top of tag and tied a bow. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
