Making Plans Release Party with Eileen Hull

Hi everyone! I’m back with a project I created using Eileen Hull’s newest stamp set called Making Plans with Maker Forte! This set of stamps has so many possibilities! From cards, tags, journals and so much more! I used these stamps on the cover of an unfinished album from a tutorial that Eileen shared on one of her Facebook Lives. Anyways, let’s get started!

I placed an assortment of the label stamps onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inked and stamped onto Cream Cardstock and various patterned scraps of cardstock. I also inked up the “dream a little” sentiment stamp and stamped onto one of the labels I had already stamped. I fussy cut all of the labels out and what I don’t use now will be used in finishing the inside…the plan is to do a part two blog post later…so stay tuned!

I also used an assortment of diecuts/thinlits to decorate the cover: Shadow Box Frames Set 02 Thinlits, Shadow Box Frames Set 01 Thinlits, Shadow Box Elements Thinlits, Mandala Thinlit, Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits and Full Size Journal Diecut. Can you spot the diecuts I used?

The label stamps are so fun to layer! I had a “partial” label diecut from the Extra Large Journal Diecut that I layered with a bookplate and the “dream a little” sentiment, used water splatter rub ons (49 and Market) and more label stamps along with several flowers, leaves gems and thread loops to finish the cover.

Be sure to stop by Eileen’s blog for more creativity from the Inspiration and Educator Teams and details on how you can purchase this stamp set. You can find the blog HERE.

Making a House a Home

Hi everyone! I’m back with the full reveal of my Eileen Hull project that I shared a sneak peek of at the beginning of the month. I used an empty ribbon spool as a jumping off point too create a little home decor piece.

The first thing I did was cut two circles in patterned cardstock from the Ornament Box Diecut and adhered to the top and bottom of the spool. I cut a strip of the same patterned cardstock and adhered around the center of the spool and added flatback pearls to the bottom lip of the inside circle. Next I cut out one wreath from the Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits and added adhesive in random spots to the back of the wreath. Side note… what I will be adding to the top will anchor down the wreath.

I cut out five of the largest trees from the Vintage Truck Box Diecut, cut the trunks off, folded all, adhere the backs of the trees together and lightly ink the edges of the tree.

I cut two houses from the Shadow Box Elements Thinlits, a small section/frame of the Shadow Box Frames Set 02 Thinlit ( measure and cut at the house die roof line), fold and glue together. I backed the inside of both houses before adhering to the front and back of the “frame”. I also folded, cut and glued a strip of cardstock to create a roof.

I adhered both the tree and house to the top of the spool and proceeded to add an assortment of flowers, vines and leaves dies from the following diecuts: Wreath and Snowflakes and Shadow Box Elements Thinlits to the top of the spool.

I also added loops of thread and hand inked cheese cloth along with sequins, gems and flatback pearls to the flowers, leaves and vines.

I cut out the home sentiment and backed with a coordinating patterned cardstock, added Foam Pop Dots to the spool and placed the sentiment onto the front of the spool to finish.

If you haven’t been to Eileen Hull’s blog lately to see what her teams have been up to you can find the latest post HERE. Also on the 26th of April Eileen will have newest release of stamps with Makers Forte so be sure to come back to my blog for my latest project.

Easter Greetings Junk Journal Pages

Hi everyone! I’m back with a quick project I created for my junk journal and I wanted to share with y’all.

I used lots of leftovers from other projects to create this (the page will slide under the elastic in the journal to hold in place). The base of this page(s) was a diecut I had cut in half and used in another project. I folded in half and on the front page I added diecuts, punches and a bunny printable (image found on the internet) to create a cute Easter scene.

I used stickers, flowers and leaf sprig dies from the Folio Page Pocket and Flower Thinlits, scraps of cardstocks and Pom Pom trim to decorate the edge of one of the pages to create.

The back page I created a pocket with stickers decorating the front and added a tag with patterned cardstock and a little bunny printable. This is such a great way to use up scraps and bits and pieces you have laying around!

Everything is Coming Up Daffodils Tag

Hi everyone! It’s been awhile but I’m back with a project for Blank Page Muse! I want to share a tag I created using the daffodil stamp from the Flower and Bird Stitches Art Rubber Stamp Sheet. Let’s get started!

I placed a tag into the Crochet Mandala 3D Embossing Folder and run through the Diecut Machine. Side note…lightly spritz the tag with water before placing in the folder and running through the machine and it will hold the embossed image better and not tear the cardstock.

I placed the daffodil stamp onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inked with Black Ink and stamped onto a piece of Watercolor Paper. I watercolored the image and once dry added a little Stickles to the center of each flower. Next I fussy cut the flower image out and lightly inked over the raised images of the tag with gold ink.

I punched a circle from a green sheet of cardstock from the Cyan Consortium Paper Pack using a 3″ Circle Punch.

From my pile of cardstock scraps I picked out patterned scraps and adhered to the base of the tag. I added Foam Pop Dots to the back of the circle punch and placing onto the tag. I glued two strips of patterned cardstock to the circle before adding the stamped image.

I added sequins, gems and loops of thread to finish off the tag.

Love Postage Stamp Junk Journal Page

Hi everyone and Happy Valentine’s Day! I wanted to hop on and share a quick little junk journal page I created using leftover scraps, bits and pieces of ephemera and a printable girl that is from itKuPiLLiimaginarium. You can find the printable HERE.

I find this is a great way to use up what is laying on my desk and pushes me to get creating in the process. I love how I was able to incorporate a used postage stamp in the layout too. The “Be Mine” tag was from a swap several years ago and is a perfect place for the little girl to “sit”.

I’m slowly adding pages as I can to my junk journal. I shared pages last year on the blog and I had hoped to have the journal filled by now, but…you know…life happens. So maybe this year I’ll get it filled?

Paper Cutter

Let’s Set Sail Card with DCC and Maker’s Movement Blog Hop

Hi everyone! I’m so excited to share my project for this month’s blog hop with Designer Connection Crafts and Maker’s Movement!

93970375_3404191776262677_7417199419709194240_n.jpg107928231_2801555306611589_8097529066641871709_n.jpg

First thing I did was cut a piece of Kraft Cardstock 5 1/2″x 5 1/2″ folded to create the base for my card. I used a 6×6 pad of 7Gypsies Maritime (retired) on the front and all it took was two sheets from the collection to decorate. One of the sheets I fussy cut, distressed and rolled and added Foam Pop Dots to the back to add dimension and depth.
For the bottle I cut two bottle diecuts from the Clear Acetate Sheets and one outline of the bottle from the Double-sided Adhesive Craft Foam,the bottle stopper from cork and one from a piece of teal patterned cardstock. I peeled the backing and applied the acetate to the bottom side of the foam outline. I placed the ship and “Let’s Set Sail” Sentiment stamps onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inked with water proof Black Ink and stamped onto a piece of Watercolor Paper. I then used the appropriate diecuts to cut each one out. I watercolored the ship and once dry placed inside the outline of the bottle along with the cork, seed beads and sequins before placing the other solid piece of acetate over it. I applied the teal outline over the acetate, lightly distressed the edges of the bottle and adhered to the front of the card. 
I inked the edges of the stamped sentiment before gluing to the bottom corner of the card. I also added bits of inked cheese cloth to give a little texture to the card. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
Also be sure to stop by the DCC blog and see what the other designers have created! You can find the blog post HERE

Designer Crafts Connection: Petal Paper Flowers Tag

Hi everyone! I am so excited to be a part of the Designer Crafts Connection group blog hop this month that is sponsored by DCWV. 
DCWV has been a long-time producer of the stack-a set of coordinated papers. Stacks have been made in so many themes and colors over the years. Happy members of the American Crafts family of products, they continue their pursuit of serving the consumer and their crafty needs with new paper stacks releasing several times a year in updated themes and colors. You can find them online and in a variety of craft stores.

Each designer received a package of Petal Paper by DCWV which can be found at Joann’s in store or online. I knew that DCWV produced the stacks but had no idea that they had a line of different colored crepe papers? Who knew? I received a package of yellow and orange petal papers and knew I had to grab some diecuts and make flowers out of this.  
I folded the paper several times and placed the flower diecuts on top of the Petal Paper and run through the diecut machine.
I added a drop of adhesive to the center of each flower diecuts, placed on top of each other and pinched in the center and shaped.
Next I inked up my glass tray and added a little water to each ink. I randomly painted a tag and once dry placed in the Fractal Embossing Folder and run through the diecut machine. I lightly inked over the edges and raised areas of the tag with a blue chalk ink. 
I raided my stash and added a frame diecut and banners I created from cardstock to the tag. I adhered the flowers, leaves and leaf sprigs to the upper and lower corners of the frame diecut.
I also glued thread and cording bows, buttons, a heart shaped gem and a bit of lace to the flowers.
I placed two cute little girls paper dolls to the tag. I also applied an adhesive sheet to the piece of cardstock before cutting out a hello diecut and placing over the little girls. I finished off by adding sequins, pearls and a ribbon bow to the top of the tag.
You can find more ideas HERE.

Hot Pink Floral Extended Mini Book Case

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a project I created using Eileen Hull’s newest Tiny Book Case Diecut with a fun added “twist”!
After applying an Adhesive Sheets to both sided of a piece of Chipboard I added patterned cardstock to each side, placed the diecut on top and run through the Diecut Machine. As in the photo below you can see where I cut an extra set of “flaps”. 
I adhered the “extra set” of flaps to the front of the case.
I also glued the bottom halves and the lid together.
I cut strips of patterned cardstock the same size as the outside and inside of the case and adhered to give it a cleaner look. 
I cut cording and tied to the closure and added a button, sequin and gem to the center of the closure.

I added an assortment of flowers and leaves, handmade and store bought, to the top of the lid along with lace, cheese cloth, thread bows and pearl sprays.
There you have it! I absolutely LOVE this bookcase diecut and how versatile this diecut is! 
For more inspiration stop by Eileen’s blog to see the latest projects from the rest of team! You can find the latest blog post HERE. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Let it Snow Tag

Hi everyone! I am back after a little break from the holidays with my first project of the new year for Momenta! This tag takes no time to create. Maybe 30 to 45 minutes at the most but lets get started!
I started by placing a tag into the Let it Snow Embossing Folder and run through the Freestyle Die Cutting and Embossing Machine.
Next I inked three Art Daubers with the inks from the Blue to Teal Ombre Pigment Ink Pad and inked over the embossed image and edges of the tag.
I cut one Intricate Snowflakes Diecut from mint cardstock and cut three of the snowflakes from the diecut.
Next I cut one snowflake and two of the tiny star bursts in a light blue cardstock from the Let it Snow Embossing Folder and Diecuts and lightly inked the edges of all the diecuts. 
I placed Foam Pop Dots behind the snowflake and star burst dies before placing onto the tag. 
I adhered the three intricate snowflakes dies randomly on the tag along with sequins and gems.
I finished the tag by tying ribbon into a bow at the top of the tag and called it finished! 
As always if you have questions about this project please let me know.
