Fall Fairy on Wheels

Hi everyone! I am here to share my project I created for Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team. This month we are showing how to use the Twist and Style Tool. You can do all sorts of fun things with this tool…jewelry, create stems for flowers, etc.

For my project I started by cutting from Matboard the “drawer” from the Candy Box Drawer diecut. I embossed the drawer with Honeycomb Embossing Folder and spritzed both sides with the following Tattered Angels mists: Walnut Gold, Bronze and Tattered Leather. I then put the drawer together according to directions.

Next I cut four 8 inches of 20 gauge jewelry wire, folded in half and put each end through the button holes. To use the Twist and Style tool you can watch the how to video HERE.

Once I got all the buttons and wire twisted I cut the wire down to fit the bottom of the drawer to create wheels which I adhered to the drawer.

I printed a little girl image that I had found on the Land of Nod blog (which has since been deleted :-(). I fussy cut the little girl out, used butterfly wings from my stash, added a little Stickles to the wings and then adhered together and then placed in the drawer box.

I cut a Rosette from specialty paper, adhered to the top of the drawer a long with a small bead.

I twisted a few copper color wire on the Twist and Style tool and then I wrapped the wire around a small dow.

I added moss, a mini pinecone with an assortment of flower and leaf punches to the inside to finish off my little drawer on wheels.

Be sure to hop on over to Eileen’s blog to see what the Inspiration Team has created this month. You can see their projects: HERE, HERE and HERE and as always if you have any questions please let me know.

Reindeer and Holly Card

Hi everyone! I am back yet again with another Christmas card using the same 6″x6″ Lost and Found Christmas Pad from My Mind’s Eye which I folded the patterned cardstock to create a 3″x6″ card base. 

I cut a scalloped oval diecut from Spellbinders and the Gold Glitter Cardstock Reindeer I only cut the head out.

 I adhered a bit of gold trim and punched two small holly leaves out, shaped and added a tiny red gem to the reindeer’s nose and holly leaves. 
As always if you have any questions please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Saturday is wonderful and enjoy creating!

Happy Holidays Reindeer Card

Hi everyone! I am here to share a really quick Christmas card (yep I’ve been making Christmas cards 😉 ) I created using cardstock from the Lost and Found Christmas 6″x6″ Pad from My Mind’s Eye. I folded the 6″x6″ piece of cardstock in half to create a 3″x6″ card base. I cut two stripes of plain cardstock and patterned cardstock and adhered to the center of the card base.

I cut a Beaded Circles (Spellbinders) and a small Scalloped circle (discontinued Stampin’ Up! Sizzix Diecut) which I embossed with Powdered Sugar Embossing Folder.

I used the Reindeer Diecut and cut part of the head from Gold Glitter Chipboard and glued in the center of the scalloped circle. I added a small red gem for the nose and then fussy cut a “Happy Holidays” sentiment from the Lost and Found Christmas Collection. This was a very easy and quick card to put together in no time at all.
In the next week I will be sharing more Christmas cards as time permits and if you have any questions about this card please let me know. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Monday is wonderful and enjoy creating!

Toilet Paper Roll Birdhouse

Hi everyone! I am here to share a project I created for the Robin’s Nest to use in their booth at CHA trade show. If you don’t know what CHA is it stand for Craft and Hobby Association and it is a conference and trade show.

The theme of the Robin’s Nest booth was birdhouses and for my birdhouse it started out as a lowly toilet paper roll. I cut a piece of Saffron Honey Cardstock to fit around the roll and I adhered the script/scroll of cardstock side up to the roll with Antique Mod Podge. Also I cut a scalloped circle from the same cardstock but used the backside. I inked the edges, cut a slit to the center of the circle and then adhered the two edges together to create a roof for the birdhouse which I glued to the top of the TP roll.

Next I cut and adhered a small square of Moss Green Glitter Cardstock to the bottom of the roll to create a base to glue moss, paper flowers and twigs. The flowers I added to the centers buttons and Dew Drops for a fun effect.

I punched a circle from the Smoky Chevron Cardstock, inked the edges and adhered in the middle of the swirly pattern on the roll. Next I cut a small piece of the Birch Tree Paper Straw off, inked all over and glued under the circle. Though this birdhouse looks hard to do it was really easy to put together.

This is a photo of the birdhouse at CHA and Rachel the owner of The Robin’s Nest is holding it so my friend Jennifer can take a photo of it. That was one of many exciting moments of projects at CHA (meaning more blog posts to come 😉 ). If you do have any questions about this project please let me know.

Robin’s Nest: Altered Snowflake Gift Card Box

Hi everyone! I am here to share another quick Christmas project for the Robin’s Nest. I give a lot of gift cards as presents and it seems like I am either running out to buy a card holder boxes or my mom is always needing one. I try and stock up after Christmas when everything is half off but sometimes I can’t find those in the already picked over selection of Christmas items. I figured since I have this Bath and Body gift card box  why not alter it into something Christmasy/Winter that can be used for the season? 

The more info on this project please go HERE.

Ghost Passport Mini Journal

Hi everyone! I am here to share my mini passport journal for this month’s s Hauntings and Holidays for Eileen Hull’s inspiration team project.
This is the first time using the Passport Book diecut and I can honestly say I LOVE IT!!! And I can see me using this one over and over again since I love creating junk journals so much.

I used a variety of leftover stickers, embellishments, printables from previous projects and swaps to create this little journal. The pumpkin diecut is from Tim Holtz and the Frame diecut is from Brenda Walton.

The covers and spine are cut from Mat Board and I stitched the pages in with black thread and then tied fiber, lace and ribbon on to the thread to add more color.

I used the following Halloween collections from Canvas Corp, 7 Gypsies and The Robin’s Nest for the pages inside the journal.

Also I included a little video to let you have a look inside. 

If you have any questions about this project please let me know. Be sure to check out the rest of the teams projects because I am sure they will knock your socks off. Also each month there is an Art with Heart Challenge that you can link your own project up to the blog and there is a chance to win one of Eileen’s diecuts too. Now who doesn’t love winning??? 🙂

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

Save the Hooters!

Hi everyone! October is breast cancer awareness month. This card along with several other projects with a Think Pink 2015 are featured over at the Canvas Corp blog which you can check out HERE.
This card was created with a play on words but with a serious message. Breast cancer can affect anyone. With females it is the second leading cause of death and even though breast cancer is rare in men it is very important to know your facts and be checked yearly.
First I cut a piece of Grey and White Mini Dot Reverse cardstock and folded to create a 6″x6″ card base. Next fussy cut an owl from the Birds and Bees on Ivory cardstock.

Cut a 3 1/2″x5 1/2″ piece of Pink Lemonade Thickstock, emboss with a geometric design and lightly ink edges and over the raised design. Cut a scalloped rectangle from the Hot Pink and White Damask Reverse cardstock, cut a scallop edge from the Embossed Large Floral White Specialty paper and a 5/8″x6″ banner from the Pink and Ivory Mini Dot Reverse cardstock. Once everything is cut adhere to the front of the card.

I printed the sentiment from the computer, cut to create a banner and adhered to the card. I pulled a strand of hot pink burlap and made a loop and tied off to create the breast cancer emblem and then finished with sequins and flat back pearls.

If you have any questions please let me know.
