Oh Deer! Rolodex Card

Hi everyone! I’m back today with another rolodex card I created for a swap I was in. This rolodex consisted of me using a bunch of leftover scraps and diecuts from previous projects that I had laying around on my desk.

I added a Medallion Diecut to the corner of the rolodex card. I placed Foam Pop Dots to the banners to give depth to the rolodex card and then I started adding leaves and heart punches, lace, ribbon and cheese cloth. I used a deer sticker from Maggie Holmes which I placed on a piece of cardstock and fussy cut before adhering on top of the banners. I added a flower from my stash to the deer.

There you have it! A rolodex made with what I had laying on my desk! As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

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.

Butterfly House Gift Box

Hi everyone! I am back this week with a gift idea for Mother’s Day! I created this little gift box for ClearSnap to be shown in their booth at Creativation this past January and I am finally getting around to sharing this fun piece.
I started by placing the outline of the Butterfly stamp from the Butterfly Clear Stamps onto the Acrylic Block/Precision Press/MISTI Stamping Tool, inked with Leather Premium Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of White Cardstock.

I placed the “filled in” image of the butterfly stamp onto the Acrylic Block/Precision Press…the precision press is no longer available but since creating this project I now own a MISTI Stamping Tool which I love. I made sure to line up the stamp with the stamped butterfly cardstock image after inking the stamp with Sandstone Premium Dye Ink and stamped on top of the stamped butterfly image.

I inked three Art Daubers with the following Premium Dye Inks: Coral, Dandelion and Black. I inked a majority of the butterfly image with Coral Premium Dye Ink and the inner and outer edges of the butterfly wings are inked with Dandelion Premium Dye Ink. The butterfly body  was inked with Black Premium Dye Ink. I fussy cut the butterfly image out.

I put a 2″x3″ box together. The second box I cut the lid/flap off and adhere the 3″x3″ piece to the smaller folded flap of box. 

Next I glued the other smaller folded flap to the inside of the box. 

The smaller flap I glued to the other side of the larger flap. 

This creates the roof for the butterfly house.

I cut four pieces of patterned cardstock 2″x3″ and inked an art dauber with Leather Premium Dye Ink and inked all edges of cardstock before adhering to the base of the 2″x3″ box. I measured and mark in 1″ increments on both sides of the roof and cut four 1 1/2″x3″ and one 3″x3″ brown cardstock and ink an art dauber with Leather Premium Dye Ink. 

I inked edges of all pieces of cardstocks. On the marked places on the roof, I started at the bottom of the roof and  work upwards by adding the 1 1/2″x3: pieces of cardstock. Before adding adhesive to the 3″x3″ piece of cardstock I folded in half to create a 1 1/2″x3″ roof peak. Then I adhered to the peak of the roof.

I inked and stamp the “Be Grateful” and “For Small Wonders” stamps from the Butterfly Clear Stamps with Leather Premium Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of cardstock. I cut both to 1 1/2″x2 1/2″ plus one plain piece of cardstock the same size.

 I inked an art dauber with Leather Premium Dye Ink and ink all edges of cardstock. I then adhered the sentiments to each side of the house. The plain cardstock I adhered to the backside of the house. I punched two mini butterflies from white cardstock and inked both butterflies with Dandelion Premium Dye Ink using an art dauber. I adhered mini butterflies to each side of the house and added Black Gems to the center of each butterfly.

Next I punched from white cardstock a decorative punch (any punch/diecut will work as a long as it fits the front of the base of the box) and inked an art dauber with Rose Premium Dye Ink and ink the edges of the punch. I glued to the front of the base of the box and adhered the stamped butterfly to the center of the base of the box and add black gems to the body.

I placed a piece of white cardstock on top of the Flower Journaling Card Diecut and place both between two cutting plates and run through the Diecut Machine.

I loaded an art dauber with Rose Premium Dye Ink and inked flower diecuts, shaped and adhered flowers to each side of the roof. 

I added leaf sprigs, pearl sprays and twine/cording to flowers. 

I added a mix of gold gems and sequins to the center of each flower. Now all you have to do is add a small gift such as candy or jewelry inside and it is ready to give as a gift.

A Heart Full of Thanks Card

Hi everyone! I  know I have been missing in action but I traveled to Arizona to attend Creativation and let me just say it was lots of seminars, meeting new people, networking and getting to see the latest products that will be coming out this year! Plus once home I had another deadline to meet…you know how that goes? But I will share more about my time there later. 😃
I would like to share a quick card I created for ClearSnap. I started by inking the Swirl Heart Stamp with Wicked Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of blush Momenta cardstock. 

I fussy cut the heart image out and add flat back pearls.

I folded a 6″x6″ piece of patterned cardstock, from the MME On Trend Paper Pad, in half to create a 3″x6″ card base. I cut one 2″x6″, one 7/8″x6″ and one 1/4″x6″ from the On Trend Paper Pad and inked the edges with Platinum Ink. I adhered the three strips of cardstock to the base of the card and glued the heart image to the corner of the card.

I inked the Thanks Stamp with Wicked Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of white cardstock and inked the edges with Platinum InkI cut a cardstock mat to frame the Thanks sentiment and inked the edges of both the frame and sentiment with Platinum Ink. I adhered the frame and the sentiment together before gluing to the card.

I punched a mini flower and a leaf sprig from cardstock and adhered to the corner of the sentiment. I also added a flat back pearl to the center of the flower. 
As always if you have questions about this card please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by hope you Thursday is wonderful and enjoy creating!

ClearSnap: Mum Planner Ink Pen Clip and Fall Notebooks

Hi everyone! Today I two projects in one blog post I would like to share. I created an ink pen clip holder and decorated mini notebooks for the Woodsy Autumn Planner. You can find the Woodsy Autumn blog post HERE in case you missed that.

For the first project I’ll start with directions for the ink pen holder. 

I cut three medium, three small flowers and two leaves from Crinoline fabric with the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Diecutsinked a glass tray with Sunshine and Golden Blend Inks and add water to ink. I laid each flower into the ink mixture, removed and let dry. I cleaned the glass tray off and ink with Leaf and Frog Blends Inks, add water to ink, laid both leaves into mixture, removed and let dry.

I inked Art Daubers with Butter and Candied Yam Ink and lightly ink the edges of each flower. I added a drop of Zip Dry Adhesive to the center of each flower. Laid each flower on top of each other, pinch in the center, shaped and added a gem to the center of the flower. I folded each leaf down the center and edge with Candied Yam ink, adhered each leaf to the back of the flower with a loop of hemp cording. 

I cut a 1 7/8 inch piece of stretch elastic and adhere each end with Fabri-Tac adhesive to each side of a binder clip. But sure to tuck the elastic up under the “rolled” metal of each side of the clip.

I adhered the flower to elastic loop  and let dry. 

For my second project I cut patterned cardstock to fit the front and back of each notebook and I inked edges of cardstock with Leather Ink and adhere to the front and back of each notebook. I also cut two strips of cardstock and ink edges with Leather ink and glue to the center of each notebook.
cut two wreath diecuts from cardstock and adhere to the front of each notebook. Punch two circles and two seal circles, ink edges with Leather ink and glue to the corner of each wreath diecut. Next I cut two mini flowers, one small flower and a leaf sprig from Crinoline Fabric using the Journaling Cards, Flowers and Leaves Diecuts

I inked a glass tray with Melon and Golden Blend Inks, add water and lay the mini flower diecuts into the mixture, remove and let dry. Ink edges of the mini flowers with Butter ink.
I cleaned the glass tray and ink with Leaf Blends Ink, add water and lay the leaf sprig into ink mixture. Remove and let dry. Ink edges of the leaf sprig with Mint ink.
I adhered a monogram to one of the notebooks and add a mini flower and cut one leaf from the leaf sprig and adhere both on top of the monogram. Glue a sequin and a gem to the center of the flower.
The other wreath notebook apply a drop of glue to the center of the medium flower and pinch and shape. Add a sequin and a gem to the center of the flower along with a leaf from the sprig and loop some hemp cording and glue both the front of the notebook. Also add a mini flower with a gem in the center of the flower next to the medium flower.

The other two notebooks I stamped the words “ideas” and “notes” with the Leather Ink onto patterned cardstock, cut out and adhere one word to each cover. 

I adhered Ric Rac on the front of each cover. Punch two butterflies from patterned cardstock and add next to each word and added gems down the center of each butterfly. 

Next I slid each of the notebooks underneath the elastic cording of the planner.

I clipped the ink pen holder to one of the notebooks and added an ink pen.

As always if you have any questions about these projects please let me.

ClearSnap: Need a Good Cry Kleenex Belly Band

Hi everyone! I want to share a project I created using some of the new stamp sets that ClearSnap has come out with this month! 

I started with the ColorBox: Buttercup Clear Stamp set, some patterned cardstock and a 8.4″x8.4″Kleenex Tissue Pack for this project.

First I cut one 2″x10″ patterned cardstock and 2 1/2″x10″ orange cardstock and wrapped the 2 1/2″x10″ around pack of Kleenex and adhere at the end of the cardstock to create a belly band. I completed the same step for the 2″x10″ patterned cardstock.

I cut one Beaded Circle Diecut from the Yellow and Ivory Mini Dot Reverse Cardstock and adhere to the center of the belly band.

I stamped the “You Need a Good Cry” sentiment with Wicked Black Ink onto a piece of cream cardstock and cut the end of cardstock to create a banner. I inked the edges of the banner with Marigold Ink and adhere to the belly band.

I adhered sequins and gems around the Beaded Circle Diecut and punched two seals from patterned cardstock and adhere to the corner of the “You Need a Good Cry” sentiment.

Next I punched a heart from patterned cardstock and glued on top of the seals.I punched a mini flower, leaf sprig from patterned cardstock and cut one leaf off of the sprig and adhere to the back of the flower before gluing to the heart. I finished off by adding a gem to the center of the flower. There you have it! If you have a friend that is down and having a rough time this is a perfect pick me up that hopefully after they have a good cry will bring a smile to their face. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

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

Let’s Make Up! Card

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a quick card I created with y’all today. I had a box of 3 1/2″x5″ blank cards and envelopes that I had picked up at the Target Dollar Spot. The cards are a solid color and I thought they would be perfect to decorate.

I used an assortment of scraps to decorate this card. I added a floral cardstock mat to the front of the card. I printed off this “make up” girl from Lisa Altered Art on etsy and fussy cut the image out and adhered to the corner of the card.
I punched from patterned cardstock a couple of mini flowers, leaf sprig, butterfly, banners and two type of seal punches and adhered to the upper corner of the card. I also added twine, gems and sequins.

I printed from the computer the “I’m sorry…Lets Make Up!” sentiment. I cut, matted with cardstock and glued to the card base. I love the little girl and the quirky sentiment! 😄 As always if you have any questions about this card please let me know. 

I would like to submit this project for the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday Challenge: #350-#351

Canvas Corp: Be Yourself Canvas

Hi everyone! Sorry if I have been MIA  but I have been cranking out projects for Creativation/CHA  which I can’t share until a later date but now I am able to share my first project of the year with y’all! 
Each year Canvas Corp crew members are asked to create a 4X4 canvas and this is what I came up with.
I spritzed the 4×4 Canvas with the following Glimmer and Simply Sheer Mists: Bahama Blue, Verdigris and Baby Blue…if you haven’t figured out these are some of my favorite colors to work with. 😊 Once it was dry I gathered up an assortment of Canvas Corp and 7 Gypsies cardstocks and started fussy cutting and punching out before I got down to layering everything onto the canvas.

I cut out from the following scraps of cardstocks I had laying on my desk: Architextures Old Window and Architextures Stenciled Crates cardstocks, roughed up the edges of the cardstock, added a piece of a doily and inked all before adhering to the canvas base.

I fussy cut the woman from the 7Gypsies Seamstress Pattern Cardstock and since there was and arm going a cross the body and the woman’s legs hung off the canvas I decided to cover it with a saying and banners. Also from my own stash I fussy cut butterfly wings from a printable and added to the back of the woman. I didn’t glue the wings down so I could curl to give them a little definition and I added Stickles to the wings. Also I added three little gems to the hat for a little bling.

The banners I cut from the Architextures Market Signs cardstock and the sentiment is from the 7Gypsies Gypsy Moments: Pose and Reflections cardstock. I inked all of the edges and cut the sentiment a part before adhering to the canvas.

From the 7Gyspies cardstock scraps I had laying around I distressed the edges of cardstock, inked and adhered around the edges of the canvas. 

The front of the canvas still looked a little bare so I punched out flowers and leaves from my Canvas Corp cardstock, shaped and added gems and flat back pearls to the flowers.

This was definitely a fun project to create. If you have any questions about this project please let me know.
Also I would like to submit this for the following challenge:

Word Art Wednesday: Anything Goes-Challenge #318-#319

Nurture Your Soul


Hi everyone! Can you believe that only on a couple of days it will be official Fall??? Compared to last year it is way cooler which I have mixed feeling about. Don’t get me wrong I do like it a little cooler but not to where you are turning on the heat and bundling up. Give me low 80’s during the day and upper 60’s at night year round and I am happy. 😊
Also I wanted to share this little Bible that I altered and it is featured over on the Canvas Corp blog today! For all the how to’s you can find the blog post HERE.
As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
