Bloomin’ Cute Paper Dolly

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a quick post of a journal page I did in my Zoo Cutie Dori. The inserts for my dori I bought at Michaels for 3.99…I think? They come in a set of three. Since I have a lot scraps of cardstock I figure this will be a great way to use what I have laying around. I started by covering the page with a patterned cardstock.

The frozen Charlotte doll stamp is from Pink Persimmon but the company is no longer in business. I stamped the doll image and fussy cut (I also added a little pink pastel to her cheeks) and then cut a dress for her from the Party Dress Thinlits Set. The bouquet of flowers I cut from a magazine. Of course I had to add some lace, Ric Rac, sequins and Dew Drops to her dress to girly it up. I cut and added a banner to the bottom of the page and from my stash of diecuts I adhered the bloom where you are planted sentiment.
I adhered velvet trim to the edge of the page. I added the top half of a shipping tag and I decided it would be fun to add lace and twine and a couple charms. The silk flower I had received in a swap and I added the felt leaf which was cut from the Buttons, Border and Trim diecut and finished off with two buttons and twine.
Out of everything on this journal page the tag tab is my favorite! Love all the dangly stuff and the hot pink flower. 🙂
As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Whimsical Mushroom Jar Hut

Hi everyone! Today Eileen Hull’s and Stampendous’s design teams have teamed up to do Along the Garden Path blog hop! My project is a combination of Eileen Hull’s Make it 3D and Button Jars and Labels dies and Stampendous’s Mushroom Home stamps and Dies. I thought the shorter jar looked like a mushroom stem and would be perfect since I could cut it from matboard.

I started by cutting two of the jars and one of the make it 3D boxes from Matboard, four jars and one of the make it 3D boxes from patterned cardstock. The mushroom top I used the Stampendous’s die and cut four tops from patterned cardstock.

I inked the jars with a tan chalk ink and adhered the patterned cardstock to all of the mat board pieces. I measured a half of an inch up from the bottom on the backside of each jar and made pencil marks. 

I adhered each jar piece to the make it 3D box.

I sandwiched the top of the jars between two of the mushroom top dies and adhered together.

I stamped the circles, door and window on varies pieces of patterned cardstock.

 I fussy cut and adhered the individual pieces together and then added to the mushroom.

I added sequins to the mushroom top, a cord bow, paper flowers and Dew Drops to finish it off. 

Now its ready to store my pencils. 🙂 If you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Also be sure to check back each day to see what each team member creates from Eileen Hull and Stampendous design teams!

A Holiday Wish

Hi everyone! Are you ready for Christmas? Me? No! Every year I say I’m going to be ahead of the game so I can enjoy the season but you know how it goes it just gets crazy busy and before you know it Christmas is here. Sigh…
Well, I want to share two quick projects I created using this month’s cosponsor’s Just For Fun Rubber Stamps. Lets get started.

I started with a Christmas card envelope that I messed up. Instead of throwing it away I decided I wanted to use it as a pocket for a journal…the flap is actually on the end of the envelope which will make it easy to put memorabilia in it. 

For more info and photos please be sure to hop on over to the Altered Pages blog!

No Business Like Snow Business Card

Hi everyone! I’m here to share another quick 3″x6″ card I created using My Mind’s Eyes Merry 6″x6″ pad and the Inkadinkado Christmas Characters stamp set. I stamped the snowman on some lined cardstock from the paper pad and stamped the hat, scarf, red bird and carrot on scraps from the same pad and fussy cut out and adhered to the snowman image. I cut various sizes of rectangles and glued to the card along with the snowman image. I stamped the sentiment on a piece of cardstock and glued to the card. Easy peay 🙂

Christmas July Penguin Card

Hi everyone! I know you’re thinking really??? Christmas cards in July??? You’ve got to be kidding me!!! Well, lets face it Christmas will be here before you know it and for once I would let to be ahead of the game so to speak instead of scrabbling around at the last minute trying to make something.  So I will be sharing a card and other craft related projects here and there this month. 🙂
I used a 6″x6″ paper pad from My Mind’s Eye Merry Collection and Christmas Characters Stamp Set from Inkadinkado. I folded a 6″x6″ piece of cardstock to create a 3″x6″ base, stamped and fussy cut the penguin out, cut, layered  and adhered cardstock to the front of the card. Stamped and cut sentiment out and framed with cardstock and adhered to card. Easy peasy card  using only a 6″x6″ pad and one stamp set. 🙂
