Precious Friends

Hi everyone! I am here to share a quick post of a card I created. About a month ago me and the hubby went to the Scrapbook Expo that was in Duluth, Georgia. I had won a pair of tickets to get in free off Instagram from Spellbinders, even though it was a 3 hour drive one way it was so worth it. 🙂 At one of the booths I purchased a decoupage pad from Belle & Boo. I absolutely fell in love with the adorable children images that is in the pad.

The images can be punched out and then put together to create a 3D effect. Since I don’t own pop dots I used the leftovers from rubber stamps that I cut apart instead. It was very easy to put together since everything is numbered. 🙂 I started with a 6″x6″ folded cardstock base and added scraps of patterned and plain cardstock to the surface along with sequins and thread.

The sentiment is from an old Brenda Walton’s Card Quotables Sticker Pad that I had forgotten that I had. I love how quickly the card came together and how cute it looks. 🙂

Also I would like to submit this card from the following challenge: 
If you have any questions about this card please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Thursday is wonderful and enjoy creating!

Fall Back Junk Journal Rolodex Holder

Hi everyone! I am here to share my project that I created for the Eileen Hull’s September Art with Heart  Fall Back Challenge. I decided I wanted to try my hand at creating a rolodex holder with the Scoreboards XL Die Box Square and this is what I came up with. As seen below I cut out three of the box shapes from mattboard. 

Next I measured and cutdown the boxes to form my rolodex holder.

I adhered all edges together.

Cloths pin come in handy and keep everything from coming a part while it dries.

I glued the chevron cardstock in the bottom of the holder and then cut two pieces of mattboard and punched holes which I used a rolodex as a template to center the holes. Next I cut two rounded  dowels to fit and then painted with a soft yellow acrylic paint.

I covered the box with cardstock, placed the dowels in the holes, added legs and finished off with a “imagine” sticker from my stash.

I do have a rolodex diecut but it is smaller than the holder so I dug out my rolodex punch (you can get this at an office supply place). 

I went through my massive stash of scraps of scrapbook paper, cardstock, graph paper and book pages and punched out twenty cards for my holder.

The plan is to “try” to either decorate or journal something everyday on each of the cards. Also I plan on create more cards as I go along…fingers crossed. 😉 

Be sure to stop Eileen Hull Art with Heart Challenge and check out the rest of the entries for more inspiration!

I hope this inspires you to create one for yourself. If you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Monday is awesome and enjoy creating!

Spring is Here Matchbox

Hi everyone! I’m here to share a quick post of  a 300 count matchbox that I had altered over a year ago for a magazine call. It wasn’t selected so I put it back to share at a later date and since I have Spring fever…lol…I thought I would share. 🙂 
I used scrapbook paper, a variety of flowers, gems, dew drops, seam binding, and a “Spring is Here” sticker to create this vintage Springtime matchbox. Also I had found the little ceramic dove when I was cleaning so I added Crystal Stickles to it to glitter it up.

If you have any questions about how to alter a matchbox please let me know.

T is for Together

Hi everyone! I’ve been one busy little bee crafting away. I have several projects in the works and will be sharing them this month as I finish them.
I’m not sure if I’m going to use this mini or add it in my shop to sell but I wanted to share. It is  4 1/2″x8 1/2″ in size and I created it using various sizes of leftover scrapbook paper, vintage sheet music, tags, doilies, envelope and a printout. I inked the edges in a red ink and then used my bind it all to bind all 35 pages together…that is front and back and I shared all of the pages for you to see. 🙂 There are many spaces to add photos and journaling about that special someone in your life. 

If you have any questions please give me a holler and I will do my best to answer. Thanks for stopping by, hope your Sunday is wonderful and enjoy creating!!!
