DCC and Gwen Studios Blog Hop

Hi everyone! I’m back today with my project I created for the Designer Crafts Connection and Gwen Studios blog hop!

Gwen Studios has a wonderful selection of beautiful ribbons, trims and bows and I’m so excited to be able to use a few of these on my journal page!

I love to use up what scraps of cardstock that I have laying around so I decided to create a page for my journal. First I gathered scraps of patterned cardstocks and the Peach Pom Pom, Tassel and Ribbon Box Set.

I adhered the scraps of cardstocks together and cut a piece of the peach ribbon to fit the bottom of the page. I punched a hole into the ribbon and cardstock on either side of the page. I selected from the Oh Snap! Snap Fastener Kit (online Walmart July 2021) a heart shaped snap, placed into the punched hole and set with the fastener tool.

I cut and glued a piece of the tassel from the Peach Pom Pom, Tassel and Ribbon Box Set to the side of the page.

I added a flamingo and flower diecuts that was laying on my desk to finish the page.

Be sure to stop by the DCC blog to see what the other members of the team have created. You can find the link HERE.

Planner Tassels and Planner Clips

Hi everyone! I am back to share  a couple of quick and easy projects for your planner using Eileen Hull’s newest diecuts from the Heartfelt Collection. I created these for Eileen’s booth at CHA/Creativation. 
For the planner tassel I cut a couple of flowers from felt using the Stitchy Flower and Leaf Diecuts and twelve 8 inch strips of ribbon and fiber. Next I gathered all the ribbon and fiber and ran it through a small metal ring (the ring I found in the jewelry section of Hobby Lobby), folded in half and made sure it was even before tying off with thread. I adhered the flowers together with a Dew Drop and then glued on top of the thread. I cut a Ball Chain down and ran through the metal ring and then attached to the planner. 

For the planner clips I used Bird and Butterflies Diecuts and a variety of scraps of felt to cut the diecuts out. For both the bird and butterfly I adhered the pieces together and then glued to the top of a large paper clip. For the bird I added sequin, mini flower, dew drop and for the butterfly I added a scrap of lace, button, sequin and dew drop to finish both off.
All of these project took maybe an hour and that was only because I had to hunt for supplies so I would say you could knock several out if you are more organized than me. 😉
