Lovey Dovey Rolodex

Hi everyone! I want to share a quick project I created for a swap I’m in on Swap-bot for Betty aka sewcrazy and of course I created one for myself. The supplies I used for this cute little rolo are My Mind’s Eye, K and Company, some paper scraps, Stampin’ Up A Little Somethin’ stamp set (Lovey Dovey stamp), buttons, The Robin’s Nest Dew Drops and I used the Sizzix Rolodex die.

The owl is something I came up with on my own. I used a onesie pattern that I cut from a Paper Trey die cut. I cut the arms off of the pattern and used a jar that traced to rounded the bottom of the pattern. The leg opening of the onesie I used a smaller jar that I traced and cut to make the ears. The wings and the beak is a heart…I cut the heart into two pieces to make the wings…and the tummy I used a punch.

I know I definitely want to make some more of these owls whether as cards or I might try my hand at making some little owl pin cushions. Whoooo knows 😉
Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day and most of all enjoy creating!!!

Bona’s Mix Media Tag Swap

I would like to share a tag I created for Bona’s (aka Live Love Scrap) mix media tag swap that she hosted on her blog. I am in such awe of her creativity and was super excited I actually was able to get into one of her swaps.
I used a #8 tag which I did washes of the following paints: Folk Art (Slate Blue), Americana (Spa Blue), Ceramcoat (Turquoise and Green Tea).

After the washes dried I glued a piece of a 1920 dictionary page to the tag and then used Tattered Angels Glimmer Screens Fanciful Stencils over part of the page and tag. I then let that dry. I used Perfect Pearls Mists Sour Apple and sprayed a little coat of glimmer to the tag. I used the following rubber stamps: KaiserCraft (bird cage), Christy Tomlinson (butterfly), Limited Edition (complex corner) and Stampabilities (Felt With the Heart). The birdcage, quote and the butterfly I used StazOn Timber Brown and Teal Blue ink and for the complex corner I used Stampin Up’s Craft white ink. The quote I cut apart and inked all of the edges and glued to the tag. Then I fussy cut the butterfly out and applied glue to the center of the body. I folded the wings up to make the butterfly look like it was flying. To finish it off I added a bit of lace , button and a Robin’s Egg Dew Drop to the top of the button and then it was finshed.

I also created a envelope of goodies using a Tattered Angel Field Notes Stamp set, seam binding, scrapbook paper. I included this with each tag I created.

 Also when you have a chance check out Bona’s You Tube video. I’ve included the link here. I hope this will inspire you to create your own tag.

Thanks for looking and enjoy creating!!!

Christmas Reindeer Card

I want to share a quick project I created a couple of months ago. I bought this really cute reindeer rubber stamp at Your Scrapbook Super Store and Clearance Center …in the clearance store…which is located in Sieverville, Tennessee. I got some super duper deals while I was there.  If I had had more time…I was only able to shop for 40 minutes before the store closed…I could have racked up alot more scrapbook booty than what I did***giggles***.
For this project I used: My Minds Eye paper, K & Company paper, Inkadinkado rubber stamp, Tim Holtz Alterations Sizzlits die, Button, lace, baker’s twine, Stampin Up ink and rubber stamp.

It’s hard to believe that Christmas is right around the corner but maybe this will inspire you to dig out some of your rubber stamps, scrapbook paper and make something fun.

Thanks for looking and enjoy creating!!!
