Hi everyone! I am so excited to share that I am a Brand Ambassador for Momenta! I’ll be sharing twice a month projects that I have created using their wonderful assortment of products such as cardstock, diecuts, stamps, traveler’s notebooks, etc.!
Well, lets get started with my first project of the month!
I had decided I was going to alter an empty ice cream/gelato container. I liked the shape and size of the container and thought once altered I could either use it as storage or give it as a gift.
I picked out the pink and gold polka dot doily from the 4″ Doily Watercolor Pack and cut a small section of the doily off.
I pinched and folded both pieces of the doilies to create “fans” and I adhered the larger of the two to the container.
Next I adhered trim around the top of the container.
I then started by cutting a section of butterfly and flowers off from the yellow/off white cardstock. I used this as the base to adhere all the layers to.
I cut flowers and the butterfly from the different diecuts and adhered…I used Adhesive Sheets for the t-tiny pieces and Beacon Adhesives…generally Zip Dry Adhesive but I was out and the Fabri-Fix works as good if not better.
I added sequins and gems to the center of the flowers.
I traced onto the same piece of cardstock I used to cover the container a circle using the lid as the template. Since my cutting wasn’t perfect I covered the edges with flatback pearls.
I adhered the flowers and butterfly diecut to the front of the container. I added bits of tulle behind the diecut.
I also adhered the smaller doily “fan” behind the diecut as a filler.
For the final touches I made several loops of thread and added those and pearl sprays to finish this container.
I hope you have enjoyed this project as much as I enjoyed creating it! As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know. Also be sure to check out Momenta website which can be found: HERE, Facebook HERE, Twitter HERE and Instagram HERE.

Hi everyone! I am back with another tag I created. I had actually created this tag for ColorBox for use in an advertisement in Creative Scrapbooker Magazine last year. I kinda let this post sit in the draft folder of my blog and never got around to posting the directions on how I made this…so here it is! 😁
I started by applying Dandelion Premium Ink to a glass tray, adding water and placing the tag into the watered down ink and removed. I cleaned off the tray and applied the following inks: Rose, Jade and Spring Premium Dye Inks to the glass tray and added water. I randomly place the Tag in the different colors of ink until desired effect was achieved.
I cut from a brown/wood looking cardstock a Wreath Diecut and inked the leaves with Ice Jade Chalk Ink. The wreath was bigger than the tag so I adhered to the front and wrap and glue the rest to the back of the tag.
Before glueing the rest of the wreath to the backside I measured and cut a piece of Yellow and Ivory Mini Dot Reverse Cardstock the size of tag and adhere to the back of the tag.
I cut from White Cardstock flowers and leaves from the Stitchy Flowers and Leaf Diecuts and from the Flower and Leaf Stitchlits Diecuts (retired). I added Rose Premium Dye Ink to glass tray, water and painted two larger flowers and once dry shaped with a Stylus and add two sequins and a flat back pearl to the center of each flower. I inked leaves completely with Ice Jade Chalk Ink, shaped with a stylus and adhered to the backs of each flower. I shaped with a stylus three of the mini white cardstock flowers and add a gem to each center.
I tied two bows with cording and adhere to the back side of the large flowers before gluing to the tag. I finished off by adding sequins randomly to the front of the tag and cutting 8 inch piece of lace and tie to the top. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Hi everyone! I am back with another Valentine’s Day project I created for ClearSnap inks and stamps!
I started by inking a glass tray with Melon Blends Ink
, added water and placed the Tag
into the ink mixture and let dry. (Side note tag doesn’t have to be completely covered in ink.) I placed a piece of Acetate on top of the larger Hearts Journaling Card Diecut and place between cutting plates before running through the Diecut Machine. I removed all loose hearts so I could use the whole heart diecut as a stencil for my tag.
I placed the heart stencil on top of the tag and loaded an Art Dauber
with Rosebud Classic Pigment Ink
and rub over the heart stencil. Next I loaded another Art Dauber with Watermelon Classic Pigment Ink
and randomly rub over the heart stencil and let dry.
I placed the row of hearts from the Thankful Clear Stamp Set
onto the MISTI Stamping Tool
and ink with Leather Premium Dye Ink and stamped onto the bottom corner of the tag. I glued a scrap of lace and flatback pearls underneath stamped image.
I cut three patterned gold paper straws and adhere together, wrapped with cording and tie and adhered to the tag.
I added five flatback pearls randomly to the stamped hearts.
I inked the Swirl Heart Rubber Stamp with Leather Premium Dye Ink and stamp onto a piece of colored cardstock, fussy cut heart out and adhered to straws. I doubled up two Pop Dots and place under heart.
I added three clear sequins to tag and cut 10 inches of lace, threaded through top and tie off and adhered button to top lace.
As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Hi everyone! I hope you had a great New Year’s Day! I’m back with a tag I had originally created for Christmas but I figured it could pass as a wintery tag too.
I started by inking a glass tray with Fruit Punch Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink, adding water to ink and placing the tag into the ink mixture. Once the Tag is completely covered with ink I removed and let dry. I inked the Swirls Molding Mat with Peony Ink from the Enchantment Petal Point Ink Pad and randomly stamped the tag with the Swirls Molding Mat. I cleaned the molding mat and inked with the Mint Ink from the Enchantment Petal Point Ink Pad and randomly stamp the tag.
I placed the words “Peace”, “Joy” and “Love” from the Cookie Clear Stamp Set onto an acrylic block and inked with Mint Ink from the Enchantment Petal Point Ink Pad. Next I stamped onto a piece of White Cardstock
, cut out and edges each word with Mint Ink.
I placed the amp stamp onto the acrylic block, inked with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink
, stamped onto a piece of cardstock and fussy cut the amp stamped image out.
I adhered the “Peace”, “Joy”, “Love” and amp images onto the tag and added sequins to the centers of each of the white embossed snowflakes. As always if you have questions please let me know.
I cut three 8 inch pieces of white and aqua lace and aqua cording and tied off all pieces at the top of the tag with white twine I glued a button to the lace and cording.

Hi everyone! I’m back again with another idea for Christmas! This time I creating a gift bag to hold either candy or small gift.
I watercolored the angel’s face and hands with Palomino ink and let dry. Next I shaded the face with Salmon ink and painted the outfit with Scuba ink and shade with Graphite ink. The head scarf and belt I painted with Moonstone ink. I painted the candle with Posy ink.
Once dry I fussy cut the angel image out, applied Clear Glitter to wings and outfit and added four flat back pearls to angel.
I cut the following pieces of patterned cardstock: 3″x6″ and 1 7/8″x3 1/2″ and adhered both to the front of the bag. I also cut two strips of patterned cardstock slightly smaller than the bag. I cut a “V” into the end of the strips to create a banner and adhere to the bag.
Next I spritzed a wooden snowflake with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz and once dry adhered to the bag.
I added sequins, buttons and flat back pearls to the snowflake.
I stamped the “Peace on Earth” sentiment from the Vintage Christmas No. 4 Stamp Set with Wicked Black Ink onto a strip of white cardstock and cut a “V” in the end to create a banner and added onto the top of the snowflake.
I applied Pop Dots to the back of the angel and add to the bag. To keep the bag closed I clipped a Mini Clothes Pin to the top of the bag. There you have it another DIY Christmas project that will save you time…as in getting out in all the shopping craziness and it will save you a little money too. 😊
I would like to submit this project for the following challenge:

Hi everyone! I back after being in Nashville for a few days awaiting the arrival of my grandson. He was born on the 3rd and lets say I am completely in love with this little guy! I can’t wait to make another trip soon for more snuggles. 💖
Even though here in the South it always seems we will never see cooler weather…we still have temperatures in the upper 80’s and lower 90’s…I decided to create an autumn shaker tag.
I started by placing the Leave and Journaling Diecut on the cutting pad and one Foam Adhesive Sheet on top of the diecut and place other cutting pad on top and run through diecut machine. I completed the same steps with patterned cardstock instead of foam adhesive.I removed the leaves diecuts from the center of the journaling diecuts, foam adhesive and patterned cardstock. I removed the leaves center diecut from the center of the journaling card diecut and cut one diecut from patterned cardstock.
I peeled the backing from foam adhesive and place the solid journaling card diecut on top of the foam. I placed an assortment of micro beads and sequins into each leave and cut a piece of acetate/clear packaging to cover the front of the shaker tag. I peeled the backing carefully from the foam so the beads and sequins won’t fall out and placed the acetate/packaging onto the foam.
Next I adhered the patterned cardstock leaves diecut on top of the acetate/packaging and added jute cording around the outer edge of the shaker tag.
I cut leaves from watercolor paper with the Leaves Diecut. I inked a glass tray with Coral, Dandelion and Leather Premium Dye Inks and add water to each color. I placed two of the leaves into the ink mixture until desired effect is achieved. While the leaves were still wet I shaped and let dry.
Once the leaves were dry I applied the Top Boss Clear Embossing Stamp Pad to the edges of the leaves and applied Copper Embossing Powder to stamped edges and set with the heat embossing tool.
I completed the same steps for both Gold Sparkle and Opalescent embossing powders as I as done with the copper embossing powder.
I adhered both leave diecuts to the top of the shaker tag and added cording to the button and adhere the middle of the leave diecuts. As always if you have questions about this project please let me know.
I would also like to submit this project for the following challenges:

Hi everyone and happy first day of October! I want to share an Autumn Hoop that I created for ClearSnap. I started by spritzing Log Cabin Smooch Spritz into a plastic bowl and adding a small amount of water to create a stain. I saturated a fabric scrap and wipe down the wooden hoop until the desired color was achieved. I put the hoop a side and let dry.
I cut from white cardstock nine leaves from the Millinery Leaves Diecuts. I inked up a glass tray with the following inks: Eileen Hull ColorBox Blends: Nutmeg, Sunshine, Golden, Frog and Melon and ColorBox Premium Dye Coral Ink and added water to the inks. I placed the leaves in the inks mixture until all were covered. Once dry I placed each leaf in the Textured Impressions embossing folder and run through the diecut machine. Next I lightly ink the veins of each of the leaves with the ColorBox Petal Point Fluid Soft Pastel Chalk Ink Pad.
I inked the glass tray with Eileen Hull ColorBox Blends: Nutmeg Ink and add water and loaded a paint brush with watered down ink and splatter each leaf. Once dry I shaped with a stylus and my hand.
I cut from white cardstock several Sizzix/Eileen Hull: Heart and Soul Flowers Diecuts and inked a glass tray with Eileen Hull ColorBox Blends: Sunshine and Golden Inks, added water and laid each flower in the ink, remove and let dry.
Next I shaped the flowers with stylus and adhered together. I layered buttons and a sequin in the center of each flower and adhered. I glued the larger of the two flowers to the top center of the wooden hoop.
I added a layered mix of the other smaller flower, leaves, twigs and Fall Berry Sprays around the top of the hoop. I finished by adhering several loops of cording to the arrangement.

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a quick card I created with y’all today. I had a box of 3 1/2″x5″ blank cards and envelopes that I had picked up at the Target Dollar Spot. The cards are a solid color and I thought they would be perfect to decorate.
I used an assortment of scraps to decorate this card. I added a floral cardstock mat to the front of the card. I printed off this “make up” girl from Lisa Altered Art on etsy and fussy cut the image out and adhered to the corner of the card.
I punched from patterned cardstock a couple of mini flowers, leaf sprig, butterfly, banners and two type of seal punches and adhered to the upper corner of the card. I also added twine, gems and sequins.
I printed from the computer the “I’m sorry…Lets Make Up!” sentiment. I cut, matted with cardstock and glued to the card base. I love the little girl and the quirky sentiment! 😄 As always if you have any questions about this card please let me know.
I would like to submit this project for the following challenges:

Hi everyone! I’m back to share a quick Father’s Day project I created for ClearSnap. Before cutting out the Flower Pocket Diecut I applied a total of four Adhesive Sheets to the front and back sides of the Mat Board. I cut 7 Gypsies Archtextures: Painted Door Cardstock to fit the front of the mat board, peeled the protective sheet off of the adhesive and placed the cardstock onto the mat board. On the back side of the mat board I cut 7 Gypsies Vintage Varsity: Stubs Cardstock (retired) and repeated the same steps as for the other cardstock. Once cut out I put together according to the directions on the packaging.
I cut from Kraft Cardstock a Medallion from the Medallion Diecut. Put together and inked with ColorBox Pigment Platinum Ink. I stamped the Mustache Rubber stamp onto a piece of white cardstock with ColorBox Archival Dye Wicked Black Ink. I fussy cut one of the mustache images out and adhered to the center of the medallion. Next I punched a circle out, embossed with the Starburst Embossing Folder and inked with the Platinum ink. I added a cording bow and sequins to finish off the pocket. Now all I need is some shaving supplies such as a razor, shaving cream, aftershave, etc. and its ready to give as a gift!
