Her Heart was a Secret Garden Journal Page

Hi everyone! I’m back with a semi quick (lots of fussy cutting) journal page I created using Eileen Hull’s Snail Mail Everyday Sentiments Stamps by Maker Forte.

I placed the grid stamp onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inked with a Dark Brown Chocolate Ink and stamped a piece of Cream Cardstock. Once dry I cut off the off the cream colored edges. As you can see I accidentally got ink in one of the boxes when I stamped the image but no worries it will be covered.

I gathered up scraps of patterned cardstock, a flatback pearl, resin flower, thread and I fussy cut images I had printed from itKuPiLLiimaginarium on Etsy.

I also used a small heart die from the Mitten Box Diecut and the leaf sprig die from the Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits to decorate page.

Now all I have to do is add it to my art journal that I’ve been slowly filling. If you would more inspiration stop by Eileen Hull’s blog to see what her team has been up to. You can find her blog HERE.

All Things Old are New Again Wedding Frame

Hi everyone! I want to share a project I created for an upcoming design team call for Gwen Studios.

Truth be told I started this project about four years ago…yep I pulled this from the pile of unfinished projects that I have pushed off to the side in my craft room. In the photo below this is where I had stopped with this frame. I had used a mat board frame that I covered with patterned cardstock, created a shallow shadow box with the Make It 3D Diecut (retired), add Medallion Diecuts (retired), the photo and trim.

Since my son and daughter in law’s wedding anniversary is coming up I thought this would be a great time to finish this and give it to them as a gift. I did cut out the Mr and Mrs sentiment and the Mandala Thinlit and add to the side of the frame.

I used the 3/8″ Black Satin Ribbon by Gwen Studios to create two bows.

I adhered the single bow to the top corner of the frame and added a flower, pearl sprig and a scrap of lace.

The larger bow I glued to the bottom corner of the frame and finished with flowers and pearl sprigs. Don’t you think the flowers “pops” against the black ribbon?

I think the frame will look perfect in my son and daughter in law’s house since it has a farmhouse vibe going on.

If you are looking for a different color of ribbon you can find that at Walmart.com along with patches and fabric. Also if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Supplies

Gwen Studios: 3/8″ Black Satin Ribbon

Sizzix/Eileen Hull: Mandala Thinlit

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.

Let Freedom Ring Tag

Hi there! How is everyone? Will you be doing anything special for the 4th of July? Are you staying cool in your neck of the woods? Here, we are in the upper 80’s to low 90’s with not much relief in sight…so glad my husband agreed to getting a swimming pool! Anyways, I want to share a patriotic tag I created for the 4th of July!

I used the July cardstocks from the Authentique: Calendar Collection (retired) to create both sides of this tag. I cut patterned cardstock to 5″x10 1/2″ to create the base for the tag.

The journaling cards/cut-a-parts in the collection I cut apart, adhered some to the base and added Foam Pop Dots to the back of a couple to give dimension to the tag.

I cut and adhered Patriotic Red, White and Blue Ribbon underneath the cut-a-parts, along with thread, stars, sequins and White Pom Pom Trim at the bottom of the tag.

There you have it! If you have questions about this project please let me know.
