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.

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.
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 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.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your day is awesome and enjoy creating!
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.
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.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Monday is awesome and enjoy creating!
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.
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??? 🙂
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.
