Bunny Basket

Hi everyone! I’m back with my project this month for Eileen Hull! Since Easter is a less than a month away I wanted to show you how to create an Easter basket using the Folio Page Pocket and Flower Thinlits Dies and the Teacup and Spoon Diecut. Lets get started!

From the Folio Page Pocket and Flower Thinlits I cut two of the corner pockets with flaps and from the Teacup and Spoon Die I cut the “pocket” diecut out. I folded the “pocket” in half.

While still folded in half I cut a “v” out on either side of the flap.

While still folded I punched a hole at the top and added an eyelet on either side for the handle.

I adhered the corner pocket dies to each side of the flaps on the “pocket”.

I cut out two corner dies without flaps and glued to the inside of the pocket to cover the tabs and make it look neater.

I tied a 12 inch pipe cleaner to either side of the basket.

I placed Foam Pop Dots to the back of the bunny image and placed onto the front of the basket. Next I shaped flowers and sprig dies, placed a gem in the center of each flower and added to the bunny image.

I tied bits of lace to the handle and a shaped flower and a carrot sticker. Added Easter grass and bite size candies, a little bird and fake eggs to finish this adorable basket.

Leprechaun Kisses and Shamrock Wishes Tag

Hi everyone! I wanted to hop on and share a St. Patrick’s Day tag I created using the March cardstock set from the Authentique Calendar Paper Pad (I’m still shopping my stash).

First off I cut a tag out from the Tim Holtz’s Tag Diecut Set (largest diecut). I cut all the cut a parts from the March set in the paper pad out and even when further by fussy cutting certain images out. Next I shaped the shamrocks with a Stylus to add dimension, inked edges of the tag, a decorative diecut (from my stash) and cut a parts before assembling all the pieces together. I added Foam Pop Dots to the back of the leprechaun image and green thread bows before placing onto the tag.

There you have it! Do you celebrate St. Patrick’s Day? If you do please let me know in comments and as always if you have any questions please let me know.

Fifteen Minutes or Less Cards

Hi everyone! I’m back with two super quick cards I created! I know if you have been following me for any length of time you know I am the keeper of all paper scraps from my projects and you also know that I generally have several unfinished projects laying around. Since I have Eileen Hull’s newest diecuts, Foilio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits, I thought I would use the flowers from the set to finish these cards. I also used a few others diecuts by Eileen that are retired and some that can still be purchased. This is what I had laying around in my craftroom waiting to be finished.

I started with the kraft and black diamond cardstock, it was a piece of 6″x6″ cardstock that I folded in half to create a 3″x6″ card base, which I had already used scraps of patterned cardstock and a tiny piece of a lace diecut to decorate the front. That’s where I stopped on that card because at the time I really wasn’t sure how I wanted to finish it? I cut out a label from Eileen’s Kitchen Labels Thinlits (retired) and added the Hello diecut that I had leftover from a previous project and adhered to the front of the card.

I cut out two of the leaf sprigs and two of the flowers from the Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits. I shaped the flowers with a Stylus, glued under the hello sentiment and added a flatback pearl to the center of the flower.

The second card I had cut from the Needle Book Diecut (retired). I folded it and added an assortment of patterned cardstock to the front. I had one of the “fringe” flowers (Sweet Treats for You Set Diecuts) leftover from a previous project and cut out several more flowers and leaf sprigs from the Folio Page Set, shaped and adhered to the front of the card.

Also from my stash I had this mini cupcake image that I added with the flowers for something fun.

Do you think you could make these cards in less than 15 minutes ? Or maybe even 10 minutes? Let me know in the comments below.

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.

Simple Thanks Card

Hi everyone! I’m back with my second project of the month for Momenta! I wanted to create a quick and simple card that took less than 30 minutes to make so lets get started.
I started by placing the Nested Square Border Diecuts on top of a piece of Watercolor Paper and run through the Freestyle Die Cutting and Embossing Machine. Next I placed the square diecut into the corner of the embossing folder from the Thanks Floral Embossing and Diecuts and run through the diecut machine. I lightly inked over the embossed area and edges of the diecut.

I placed a scrap of green watercolor cardstock from the Watercolor 8″x8″ Paper Pad and cut two vines diecuts out from the Christmas Tree Embossing Folder and Diecuts. I  also cut one flower from Thanks Floral Embossing and Diecuts using the same paper pad. I cut a portion off of each vine and shaped, along with the flower diecut, with a Stylus. I adhered the vines to the back of the flower along with a sequins and glossy dot to the center of the flower.

I added a bit of glue to the back of the flower and placed in the lower corner of the square diecut. Next I placed an Adhesive Sheet on the back of a scrap piece of cardstock from the Metallic Ink Paper Pad, placed the thanks diecut from the Thanks Floral Embossing and Diecuts on top of the cardstock and run through the diecut machine. I peeled the backing off of the thanks sentiment and placed on the square diecut.
I cut a piece of blue cardstock from the Watercolor 8″x8″ Paper Pad and folded it 4″x5 1/2″ to create the card base. I added a small strip of metallic cardstock to the card before adding foam pop dots to the back of the square diecut and placing on the front of the card. Very easy card! I would like to also add before wrapping up my post that this is my last Momenta post…for the time being…I hope to come back at a later date once I am finished with a few home projects. 😊

Love You Card

Hi everyone! Can you believe it is already August?!?!? I blinked and summer is almost over! 😳 I’ve been busy these last couple of months and really haven’t had a chance to enjoy time in the pool like I normally do. Oh well, I’m getting ready to change that! 😎 While I am here I want to share a card I created for Momenta!

I had a bunch of leftover cardstock scraps from another project so I decided I would try and come up with something from what I had on hand and this is what I came up with. I started with a 4 1/4″x7 1/4″ folded piece of cardstock from the Momenta Basic Paper Pad (retired).
I cut a piece of cardstock from the Watercolor Metallic Paper Pad to 3 1/2″x7 1/4″ and adhered to the front of the card base. From the same paper pad I cut a Rectangle Diecut from stripped metallic cardstock and adhered to the card base.

Next I placed a 4″ yellow polka dot Watercolor Doily and a scrap of cardstock that I cut a “v” in the end to create a banner onto the card.

I cut “love you” and the decorative heart diecuts from the Romance Pack Cutting Template from cardstock scraps from the Metallic Ink Paper Pad.

I had a scrap of an Intricate Border Diecut leftover that I added to the card along with “love you” sentiment and decorative heart diecuts. I added a fabric flower and leaf from my stash with sequin and gem to the center of the flower and gems to the decorative heart diecut to finish off my card.

Stay Cool Fan

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a quick fan project I created! The weather has been HOT around here…mid to upper 90’s and it’s hard to stay cool so I thought I would create this fun fan using some of my ColorBox inks! 

I started by placing a piece of Watercolor Paper on top of the “Postage Stamp” looking diecut from the Creative Book Pages Diecuts. I placed between the cutting plates and run through the Diecut Machine. I cut off 1/2″ on each side of diecut with a Paper Cutter. I inked the glass tray with Sunshine Blends 2 Ink  added water to ink mixture, placed the diecut in the ink mixture and once completely covered with ink removed and let dry.

I placed the Geometrics Art Screen on top of the diecut, inked an Art Dauber with Tutu Blends 2 Ink and applied over art screen. Then I removed the art screen and let dry.

Next I inked the following letter rubber stamps “stay” with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamped onto a piece of patterned cardstock. I cut cardstock to fit the fan and before adhering I cut a small banner from orange cardstock and glued both to fan.

I inked the glass tray with following Blends 2 Inks: Stop, Golden and Sunshine Blends 2 Inks, added water to each ink, laid a scrap of watercolor paper in the ink mixtures. Once the watercolor paper was completely covered I removed and let dry. 

I placed an Adhesive Sheet on the back side of watercolor paper and placed on top of following letter diecuts: C, O (cut 2) and L. Next I placed between cutting plates and run through the diecut machine. I removed the adhesive backing from letter diecuts and placed under the “stay” wording.

I finished by adhering a wooden paddle/stick to the fan. I know it is in no way a substitute for air conditioning but it does help a little to stir a breeze when you are hot and sweaty. Also this would be a fun craft to do with your children too. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
