Doilies and Flowers Drawer

Hi everyone! I back with another project in the same week for Eileen Hull!  I used the Stacking Drawer Diecut, Flowers and Leaves Journaling Cards Diecuts and Eileen’s new Easy Cut Adhesive Sheets which are perfect for this type of project!

I started by applying the Adhesive Sheet to the Chipboard and adding the patterned cardstock (both sides) from the Best of Jillibean Soup Paper Pad (I think the paper pad is retired) before placing it on top of the Stacking Drawer Diecut and running it through the Diecut Machine. I put it together according to the directions on the packaging.

I cut flowers and leaves from the same paper pad using the Flowers and Leaves Journaling Cards Diecuts and shaped with a StylusI fussy cut two doilies from one of the cardstocks and two strips of patterned cardstock.

 Before adhering the strips of patterned cardstock around the cover I added cording, long enough to tie into a bow, around one side of the cover. I glued the doilies on top of along with the flowers, leaves and bows I made out of sewing thread. To finish off the flowers I added glossy dots and sequins to the center of each flower.

I dressed up the inside of the drawer with pink trim…I made a couple of mistakes which I won’t point out…that covered those and no one is the wiser. 😬

I packed all sorts of goodies inside since this is for a swap I am in…I should have taken a photo of all the things before packing it I know. But if I had unpacked it I would have never got it all fit back in the drawer. 😳  Be sure to hop on over to Eileen’s blog and see what the rest of the Inspiration Team has been up to. You can find this month’s blog posts HERE and HERE.

Eileen Hull: Journal Envelope Pocket

Hi there! I am back for the third day in a row with another project I created for Eileen Hull’s booth at CHA/Creativation. This journal pocket I created for my foam-dori using the House/Pocket Stitchlits Diecuts

I cut four house/pocket diecuts from felt and “stacked” each diecuts end up on end (line up the holes) before stitching together because if you don’t it will make it hard to stitch all four pieces of felt together. I stitched the sides together to create pockets and the flaps I stitched individually.  I used cross stitch thread and did a back stitch on all edges. You can Google or Bing back stitching if you are unsure how to do this stitch.

The bottom flaps I used Fabri-Tac to adhere it to the pocket and the top flaps I added a velcro dot to keep each pocket closed.

I also cut a couple of felt flowers diecuts from the Stitchy Flowers and Leaf Collection and adhered to the flaps of the pocket journal. Now there is a place to hold stickers and washi tape samples in the foam-dori journal. Be sure to stop by Eileen Hull’s BLOG for the latest from her Inspiration Team and as always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

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

Noel Card

Hi everyone! I am back with another quick Christmas card I created using the Lost and Found Christmas Collection from My Mind’s Eye. The card base is 3″x6″ and I cut a Scalloped Rectangle (from Spellbinders) out of gold glittered cardstock .

I adhered a strip of patterned cardstock, along with a banner and a Noel sentiment I cut out from the collection.

The miniature snowflake is actually an ornament that I cut the hanger off of it before adding to the banner. I finished it off with a sequin and a mini flatback pearl.
If you have any questions about this card or products I used please let me know.

Beacon Adhesives: Stay Classy Beautiful Card

Hi everyone! It’s me Tonya and I am super to excited to be part of the Pop Up with Beacon Adhesive. DCWV, DecoArt and Favor Crafts!

I started with the Classy Copper Premium Pad from DCWV for this card that I created. I cut and folded a piece of patterned cardstock to a 6″x6″ base for the card. I then cut a different  6″x5″ piece of patterned cardstock, distressed the edges, inked and adhered to the base of the card. The pink verbiage cardstock I punched with a decorative punch and added to the base.

The woman image I found on The Land of Nod blog which is no longer there or I would include the link to the blog. I printed the image, fussy cut out but before adhering the image to the base. I cut a scalloped diecut from Beaded Circles from Spellbinders which I glued to the back of a doily and then added off center of the card.

I cut a banner from the copper embossed cardstock (so in love with the copper) and one of the cut a parts and I cut from the pink verbiage cardstock beautiful and used my favorite go to Zip Dry adhesive to glue everything together.

The lace, trim and button I used 3 in 1 adhesive since it is a quick drying glue. No holding everything in place while I waited for it to dry.

I finished off the card with sequins and a dew drop and now it is ready to give to one of my sweet and beautiful friends. If you have any questions about this card please let me know.

Friendship Tag and a Winner!

Hi there! I hope everyone had a great weekend. Mine was great since I celebrated my birthday. It was a day spent with my husband which we went out to eat and a little shopping at Michael’s. I was looking for some type of storage containers for my craft room. I bought some snap together kraft paper covered boxes to store my massive amount of cardstock in. Well, after putting both boxes together I am not so sure about them. :-/ A couple of snaps would not snap together for anything…I guess that was why they were on clearance. Oh well, I will make them do since I demolished the packaging. 
Also I want to share the winner from my blog of this past Saturday’s post for the Crafty Card Gallery Blog Hop. 

Drum roll……and the winner is: Sarah Biswabic!!! Congratulations Sarah! Please message me at Mscraftyt@aol.com with your mailing info. Also in the subject line put Blog Hop Winner (I get a ton of emails and might miss it). 

Also I would like to share a tag I created. I had added cardstock to the base but laid it aside and never got back to it. I found it under a pile of cardstock and decided to finish it.

I used some leftover scraps of cardstock, mini pom pom trim, flatback pearls,dew drop and a sequin to the tag and I topped off the tag with a sentiment that I had received in a swap. Lastly I added seam binding and ribbon to the top of the tag. 
If you have any questions about this tag please let me know.

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!

Magical

Hi everyone! With thoughts of cooler weather around the corner I wanted to share a winter card I had actually created for a magazine call and since it wasn’t selected I thought why not share.  🙂
I started out with a folded 6″x6″ piece of Blue Bliss Thickstock from Canvas Corp. It prefect for all of the heavy embellishments I used on the card since it is thicker than normal cardstock.  

I layered a variety of different wintery cardstocks on the front of the card and then added an actual snowflake Christmas ornament along with this adorable chipboard snowman from Canvas Corp. This set of 49 wintery chipboard pieces are in the shop for only $2.25. Love me a good bargain!!! 🙂

I finished it off with tulle, tiny felt snowflake and other embellishments. The magical banner was from a rub on that at the moment I can’t remember what company…this is what happens when you start getting old…if I do I will update. 😉
If you have any questions please let me know.
