Hi everyone! I am back with a quick post about a micro planner I created for a swap I was in. I used Eileen Hull’s Passport Diecut to create this micro planner for my swap partner Nancy. The swap was a color crush swap and we had to put together a collection of items in our swap partner’s favorite colors and Nancy’s favorite colors are soft pink and sage green…I had problems finding sage green items. 😞
I found this fun pen and butterfly charm on clearance at Hobby Lobby. It sure added the right touches to finish off the micro planner.
I also put together an assortment of goodies to use with the planner or use in other craft projects.
Here are some of the goodies I included inside of the bag. If you have any questions about this project please let me know.
Hi everyone! I am here to share a really quick project I had created for a swap I was in with a fellow Instagramer Linda.
I used Christmas Clipart Printables Ephemera Set 11 from Tsunami Rose Designs etsy shop.
I fussy cut the images out and added diecuts/punches, sequins, flat back pearls and a little Stickles to each rolodex card.
I also printed the little girl onto a piece of sticker paper and created my first piece of mail art. I added washi tape and stickers to finish off my envelope. As always if you have any questions please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Wednesday is awesome and enjoy creating!
Hi everyone! I’m here to share a few photos and a quick video of a travel journal I created for a swap I am in over on Junk Journal Junkies Facebook Group. Lori aka Just a Girl From the Bay from YouTube hosted this swap. If you get a chance please stop by her YouTube channel and check out some of her journals she has created…let me say they are stunning!!!
For this swap we had to use a 6″x9″ clasp envelope as the base for our journal. It also had to have pockets, tuck spots and tags. I kept the inside pretty simple so whoever winds up with my journal will have plenty of room to add photos and places to journal.
A close up of the flap.
The spine looked so naked that I added ribbon and fiber to it.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your day is wonderful and enjoy creating!
Hi everyone!!! I have been sooooo busy creating cards, swaps and design team projects and I just haven’t got around to blogging but I’m now back to share one of my projects I created for a swap I was in on Facebook. We had to altered a 300 count matchbox into a Valentine’s Day theme and add handmade goodies inside of it. Well, I’m going to share the mini album I created using five 4″x6″ paper sacks. I did cut the tops down a little so the mini would fit into the matchbox. I used Baker’s twine to bind it together.
I used bits and pieces of leftover cardstock, scrapbook paper, lace, stickers and images to put this adorable mini together.
I also put together a package of die cuts, stickers, ribbon and dew drops so my swap partner, Norma, could add more to the pages if she wanted to.
Also I shared this mini and matchbox on Maya Roads Facebook page for a challenge they had going on…there is a chance to win a prize package. I have my fingers and toes crossed that I win something. 🙂
Come back Tuesday (treat holder) and Wednesday (matchbox) to see what I created.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Monday is awesome and enjoy creating!!!
Hi everyone! I’m here to share a really quick project for a swap I was in on Facebook. I found this super cute reindeer rubber stamp at Michael’s when I was out one day. The cards were easy peasy to make. 6″x6″ cardstock folded in half to make a 3″x6″ card base, stamping and add scrapbook paper, button, sequin and dew drop. See it really is a simple card to make. 🙂
Hi everyone! Can you believe this is the first day of December and Christmas is only 24 days away??? YIKES!!! I did get out for about two and a half hours on Friday and did a little Christmas shopping. There was just no way I could force myself to go out on Thursday and shop. For one thing it is just not right that people has to work on a holiday when they should be home eating and spending time with their family. I’m afraid next year retail stores will be open all day on Thanksgiving. Sigh… 😦
I’m here to share a couple of rolodex cards I created for a swap I was in over at Swap-bot. One is for my swap partner and the other is for me. 🙂 The theme was holiday with a postage stamp used in some way on the rolodex.
I hope you enjoy them!
Hi everyone! I’m sharing my first double page spread from my diary I altered. I’m in a group over on Swap-bot were instead of sending your journal off for someone to alter they send you an envelope of, generally a theme, of scrapbook paper, images and bits and pieces of goodies. I received an envelope from Mag who lives in Singapore. How she had the envelope decorated was so much fun. I just couldn’t throw it away so I used the stamps, custom form, deco tape and address label and created my page. I did use a few of the items she included and I used some of my own dot stickers and this is what I came up with.
I‘m still working on the front cover of my journal. I feel it lacks something but once I do finish it I will share. 🙂
The best way to brighten a person’s day is to send them a card and the holidays give everyone the perfect excuse to do that. When you add talent to the mix, you have the perfect hand made holiday card to brighten any day.
That is what this hop is about. We have gathered some of the most talented card makers around to bring holiday joy to each other while showing off their talents. Some of the
crafters know each other while others have met for this first time in the Christmas Card Swap group.
Today some of the these wonderful ladies will be showing the cards they made. We hope you will join us to see how talented these crafters are and to get inspiration and ideas for your own holiday cards.
Please begin your hopping at Lorby’s World for she has a drawing with some special holiday bling and string to give one lucky winner. All the details on how to get qualified are on her blog.
The card I created was from scraps of cardstock that was going to be thrown away in the Print shop at were I work…gasp!!! They actually cut the scraps of light green cardstock to 6×6 size for me too which was super nice…one less thing I had to measure and cut myself. 🙂 Also I landed some scraps of white cardstock that was leftover from a print project and I also have friends and co-workers that save chipboard so this card is kinda a project of re-purposed finds and who doesn’t love that when you are trying to stretch your dollar during this Christmas season???
I used paper from Paper Studio and textured cardstock too.
A close up of my card…I used The Robin’s Nest Dew Drops on the snowflakes which I cut from Sizzix’s Sizzlits Merry Details and the Bigz Snowflake dies. I used white cardstock and chipboard. I inked the large snowflake with Versa Magic Oasis Green Chalk. I let dry and then I sprayed both with Tattered Angels Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist.
For the inside of the card I cut a white piece of cardstock to fit and then stamped the sentiment from the Papertrey stamp collection. I inked the edges of the white cardstock and then adhered it to the inside of the card.
Be sure to check out the line up of talented ladies that are listed below. All you will have to do is click on each card artist’s name and it will take you directly to their blog. Be sure to leave a comment and follow each blog too. 🙂
You are here now
Thanks for taking the time to stop by and I hope this inspires you to create something fun!!!
Enjoy creating and Merry Christmas!!!
I’m popping in for a very quick post :-). I have been super busy with swaps, crafting and trying out for design team calls. I did submit some of my past projects to Dawn Duntley’s Facebook group “The Scrappin’ Queens ” Artist of the Week call. Well guess what?!?!?!? I got selected…squeaks of excitement and of course I was doing the happy dance too 🙂 Below is the screen shot of my famous moment. If you get a chance please go over and “like” The Scrappin’ Queens page.
I don’t do as many swaps as I use to but I couldn’t past up Steffo Miller aka “With a Grin” super fun tag swap. I had to send in 20 #6 tags with 10 of one image and 10 of another image stamped in Staz-on ink. I went a little overboard and created little kits. I can’t wait to see what I get back!!!
Next I altered a mini Fall themed matchbox for a swap I was in on Swap-bot and filled it with all sorts of fun tidbits of craftiness. The lighting wasn’t that good so the colors aren’t as viberate as I like. I also used my camera awesome app on my iPhone too.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope this inspires you to create something fun and enjoy creating!!!
