September Apple Harvest Tag

Hi everyone! I’m back with a quick end of the month project I created using some cut a parts and cardstock from the Authentique Calendar Collection (retired). So let’s get started!

I cut a 5″x10 1/2″ piece of patterned cardstock and a 4″x8 1/2″ plain piece of cardstock out. I cut off the top edges of both and punched a hole in the top of each tag. I also inked the edges with chalk ink.

One sheet of cardstock had an assortment of cut a parts which I cut and selected the ones I would use on the tag.

I inked edges and adhered the cut a parts to the tag. Next I diecut leaves and leaf sprigs from the Funky Foliage Thinlits, shaped with a Stylus and glued under the cut a parts.

I also decorated the other side of the tag by adhering the smaller tag slightly off center of the larger tag.

Next I glued the September, Apples tag and people picking apples cut a parts onto the tag.

I placed more of the leaves and leaf sprigs under the September and apples tags.

I finished off by adding cording and thread to the leaves on both sides of the tag.

The Fancy Free Bee Hive

Hi everyone! I’m back this week with a extra large tag I created using the sheets of cardstocks from the June Calendar Collection (retired) by Authentique. I also used an assortment of Eileen Hull’s flowers, leaves and leaf sprig thinlits to dress up both sides of the tag. So, let’s get started!

With this June set of cardstocks, there is one patterned double sided sheet, one plain double sided sheet and one cut a part with images on one side and patterned cardstock on the other side. The first tag I cut the patterned cardstock 10 1/2″x5 1/4″ and punched a hole in the top. The second tag I cut from the plain cardstock 8 1/2″x4 1/4″ and punched a hole in the top also. I cut two of the tag reinforcers from the Waterfall Card and Tag Thinlits and adhered to the holes punched in each tag.

I placed Foam Pop Dots to the back of the plain tag and placed slightly off the larger tag. I glued midway of the smaller tag three strips of cardstock to create banners. The bee and daisy cut a part I adhered slightly off the smaller tag and arranged the two stamps and the sentiment cut a parts around the bee image.

I cut flowers, leaves and leaf sprigs from the following Thinlits: Folio Page Pocket and Flowers and Flower and Leaf Stitchlits (retired) and shaped with a Stylus, layered the flowers with leaves and added gems to the center. I finished off with loops of thread, sequins and a little bit of lace.

The other side of the tag I stacked and adhered two different patterned cardstocks slightly off center of each other along with a fairy and bee image I fussy cut. The June image I cut down and added a mat before placing on the tag along with a fussy cut image of yellow roses. I matted the “fancy-free” sentiment and placed over the fairy. The “Summer Time and the Living is Easy” sentiment I placed under the June image.

I shaped and adhered more flowers and leaves to the tag with loops of thread and a bow made from Hemp Cord to finish.

I still have more cut a parts and cardstock leftover and I’m hoping I can squeak out another tag or maybe even a card before the month is over.

Listen to Your Heart

Hi everyone! I want to share a card I created with you all today. At Christmas I received a craft box as a gift that had an assortment of card blanks, patterned cardstock, diecuts, stickers, etc. in it. I finally dug out one of the card blanks and decided to decorate it and this is what I created.

First off I used a Paisley Embossing Folder (I found this at Joann’s) and placed the front half of the card in the folder and ran through the Diecut Machine. Next I inked over the raised edges with an assortment of chalk inks.

There was a sheet of floral cardstock that I fussy cut several of the flowers and foliage out. I also dug into my stash of cardstock scraps and adhered to the front of the card. I placed Foam Pop Dots to the back of the sentiment and placed onto the front along with the fussy cut images.

I finished by adding gems to the sentiment tag and the center of one of the flowers and adding lace, loops of thread and Stickles to the berries.

There you have it! Hopefully soon…I’ll get around to creating something else from this craft box.

Flower and Wreath Shadow Box

Hi there! I hope everyone is enjoying warmer weather like I am. This happens to be the most favorite time of year for me, lounging in the pool, reading books, gardening and cooking out. But I still have time to craft and I want to share a project I created using a few of Eileen Hull’s diecuts and thinlits. This month’s theme over on Eileen Hull’s blog is using leftover bits and pieces and this project that I am getting ready to share is just that…a lot of leftovers. So lets get started!

I had one sheet of leftover cardstock from 49 and Market: Vintage Artistry Sage Collection and I thought that would make a great little shadow box (the cardstock is a heavy weight and is perfect for creating this box). I also had created a wedding album with this collection which you can find that post HERE.

I cut four of the smaller “frames” from the Shadow Box Frames Set 2 Thinlits, put together according to the directions and cut to fit a piece of cardstock for the back of the shadow box.

I always cut from whatever small scraps of cardstock I have leftover from previous projects leaves, flowers, etc. to have on hand. To me it’s one less step in cutting those out when in the middle of making something. The wreaths I had cut from the Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits.

I cut two a part and “wove” around the one not cut a part to make it look fuller.

I had also cut out a couple of leaf sprigs from the same wreath and snowflake thinlits and the flowers I cut from the Shadow Box Elements Thinlits. I adhered the wreath to the inside of the shadow box, shaped and glued the flower and leaves together, placed a gem in the center of the flower before adding a Foam Pop Dot to the back and placing in the center of the wreath.

I used hinges from the Treasure Box Diecut (retired) to dress up the corners of the shadow box. I also added gems to each corner of the hinges to finish off the box.

Condensed Snowflake December Daily Journal Reveal

Hi everyone! I’m back this week with the full reveal of my December Daily using Eileen Hull’s Full Size Journal Diecut. My motto it’s never to early to start working on a Christmas project…it’s my favorite time of year. So let’s get started!

All I had was the 6″x13″ Mat Board so I decided I would create a traveler’s notebook since I had notebooks on hand. Well, after applying Adhesive Sheets to both sides of the mat board and file folders to either side I cut two covers. One was a little off so I was going to even it up with my Paper Cutter…the cover slipped so I wound up cut both sides down to 3 1/2″ wide. Before adhesive the spine together I “peeled” one of the indented pieces of the spine off so the spine would be flat.

I cut a piece of polka dotted cardstock and adhered to the cover. Next I cut the circle from the Ornament Box Diecut and snowflake from the Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits and glued to the bottom corner of the journal.

I dressed up the snowflake with a mini snowflake ornament (I cut the hanger off), sequins, round and snowflakes, flatback pearls and the edges of the front and back covers I adhered Pom Pom Trim and gold Ric Rac.

Next I set eyelets in each hole before stringing elastic inside the journal and cut and placed cut patterned cardstock, notebook, accounting and dotted papers to create the inside signature.

I will probably add more pages to it later as I go but for now it is finished. Be sure to stop by Eileen Hull’s blog to check the latest creation from the Inspiration and Educator Teams. You can find those posts HERE and HERE.

If you have any questions about this project let me know.

Take Me to the Beach Tag Card

Hi everyone! I’m back this week to share my project I created for Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team this month. I’ve been longing for the beach so I decided I would create a simple fold over tag card using an assortment of Eileen’s diecuts, thinlits and a new printable that I picked up on Etsy.

I started by folding a piece of Kraft Cardstock in half and placing slightly below the cut line on the top of the largest Tag Thinlit Die from Waterfall Card and Tags Thinlits.

I thought I had photographed steps of embossing and the dies I had cut out but I didn’t…so sorry about that but it does happen especially when I get into a groove and I’m crafting away.

I embossed one end of the tag with Star Burst Embossing Folder (#659879 retired) and lightly inked of that with a mix blues, greens and purple chalk inks. I cut out the middle size tag from the Waterfall Card and Tags Thinlits, the circle diecut from the Ornament Box Diecut and the wreath from the Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits along with a couple of beach girls that I printed from the Beach Girls Printable and cut out.

Before adhering the middle size tag to the base of the card I embossed and lightly applied chalk ink to the raised areas. Next I added two small strips of patterned cardstock toward the bottom of the card before gluing the circle and wreath to the base of the card. I printed the “Take Me to the Beach” and “Do You Hear the Ocean?” sentiments from my computer, cut out, inked edges and added the first sentiment to the base. I also adhered the woman in the bathing suit and two sand dollars that I had fussy cut from a scrap of cardstock to the card and added a flatback pearl to the center of the sand dollar.

The inside of the card I dug up a shell diecut from my stash and with a crafters knife I cut a “pocket” along the inside edge of the shell.

I glued the bottom of the shell diecut to the card, added the other sentiment to the bottom corner and placed the bathing suit girls in the slit of the shell.

If I choose to, later on, I can add more tags or I could even place a gift card in the “pocket” behind the shell and give as a gift. There’s endless possibilities.

As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know. Also if you haven’t stopped by Eileen Hull’s blog lately to see what the Inspiration and Educator Teams have been up you can find those posts HERE and HERE.

DCC and Gwen Studios Blog Hop

Hi everyone! I’m back today with my project I created for the Designer Crafts Connection and Gwen Studios blog hop!

Gwen Studios has a wonderful selection of beautiful ribbons, trims and bows and I’m so excited to be able to use a few of these on my journal page!

I love to use up what scraps of cardstock that I have laying around so I decided to create a page for my journal. First I gathered scraps of patterned cardstocks and the Peach Pom Pom, Tassel and Ribbon Box Set.

I adhered the scraps of cardstocks together and cut a piece of the peach ribbon to fit the bottom of the page. I punched a hole into the ribbon and cardstock on either side of the page. I selected from the Oh Snap! Snap Fastener Kit (online Walmart July 2021) a heart shaped snap, placed into the punched hole and set with the fastener tool.

I cut and glued a piece of the tassel from the Peach Pom Pom, Tassel and Ribbon Box Set to the side of the page.

I added a flamingo and flower diecuts that was laying on my desk to finish the page.

Be sure to stop by the DCC blog to see what the other members of the team have created. You can find the link HERE.
