Hi everyone! Today I want to share a musical snow globe that I have altered for the Canvas Corp blog. I found the globe sitting in my husband’s study window, all the water evaporated and the base and the “winter scene” bleached from the sun. I thought this would be fun to give the globe new life by altering and creating a Spring scene inside. For the complete blog post you can find more photos and the how to’s HERE.
Hi everyone and Happy first day of March! I am here to share a quick project I created using leftover Tattered Angels Glimmer and Simply Sheer Mists from another project that will be hopefully shared soon. 😉
This is a great way to use up mists from previous projects. All I did was place the tag onto the glass tray and let the tag soak up the leftover sprays. The following Glimmer and Simply Sheer mists I used are: Rum Punch, Peony, Soft Peach and Gold. I made sure both side were placed in the mist and then I let dry.
Before cutting the flower arch and flower from the Floral Arch and Words Diecuts I cut a piece of Adhesive Sheet big enough to cover the pieces of cardstocks and then I ran through the diecut machine. All you have to do is peel the backing off and place on your project…easy peasy! I finished off with the other chick diecuts and a small amount of pom pom trim.
Hi everyone! With Valentine’s Day right around the corner I am here to share a 6″x6″ card I created using Eileen Hull’s newest diecut Book and Pages, Trinket Box and Frame and some of her older diecuts Romance Flower, Stitchy Flowers and Leaf and Spring Leaves dies.
I started by cutting and folding a piece of Coral and Ivory Big Rev Cardstock to create a 6″x6″ base for my card.
I cut out several flowers from the Stitchy Flowers and Leaf and Spring Leaves dies on white cardstock. On a glass tray I spritzed an assortment of Simply Sheer and Glimmer Mists: Soft Peach, Rosey, Classy Green, Silk and Moss (retired),added a little water and laid the flowers and leaves down to absorb the colors. Once I was happy with the results I removed and placed them on a tray to dry.
I used the Love Notes stamp set from Crate Paper to stamp the “love you valentine” sentiment on a piece of cardstock and added off center of the banner to finish off the card.

As always if you have any question please let me know.
I purchase these cups of Oui yogurt and the cups are made of glass. I love the shape and thought wouldn’t these make great gifts if I could dress them up in some way?
I added a little water to the mists and watercolored the flowers and leaves and let dry.
I cut strips of white and soft blue cheese cloth…Hobby Lobby now has cheese cloth in different colors…and tied around the lip of the jar. I added a bit of adhesive to hold the cheese cloth in place. I cut a two inch strip of lace and bunched up an assortment of different colored thread and adhered to where I tied off the cheese cloth.
I used pliers to snip off the shank off the back of a button so it would lay flat when I glued it to the center of the flower.
Which I did! 😊 Once the candy is eaten a battery operated candle can be added to the jar for a nice decorative touch.
As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Wednesday is awesome and enjoy creating!
I cut out from the following scraps of cardstocks I had laying on my desk: Architextures Old Window and Architextures Stenciled Crates cardstocks, roughed up the edges of the cardstock, added a piece of a doily and inked all before adhering to the canvas base.
I fussy cut the woman from the 7Gypsies Seamstress Pattern Cardstock and since there was and arm going a cross the body and the woman’s legs hung off the canvas I decided to cover it with a saying and banners. Also from my own stash I fussy cut butterfly wings from a printable and added to the back of the woman. I didn’t glue the wings down so I could curl to give them a little definition and I added Stickles to the wings. Also I added three little gems to the hat for a little bling.
From the 7Gyspies cardstock scraps I had laying around I distressed the edges of cardstock, inked and adhered around the edges of the canvas.
The front of the canvas still looked a little bare so I punched out flowers and leaves from my Canvas Corp cardstock, shaped and added gems and flat back pearls to the flowers.
I decided to create a whimsical 3D house. I cut two houses, four eaves from chipboard and two of the “sides” from the Make it 3D Diecut.
I cut another two houses and two 3D sides from cardstock. I inked the edges of the Momenta cardstock before adhering to the chipboard.
Side note I cut my 3D sides down so I could get my hand inside to hold the tabs down while the adhesive dried and I cut the tabs off of the cardstock since it wouldn’t be seen.
Next I cut a base for my house to sit on from a scrap piece of matboard. I used a mix of watered down Leaf and Frog ColorBox Blends ink which can be found HERE. Once the base was dry I adhered the house on top of it.
I cut strips from an old sheet of music and adhered around the base of the house. I added moss and I cut flowers from the Stitchy Flowers and Leaf Diecuts, shaped, put together and added buttons and gems to the center of each.
The back side of the house I cut from cardstock a butterfly from the Bird & Butterflies Diecuts. I adhered it to the house and added a zipper pull to the center of the butterfly along with a bit of flower ribbon.

Hi everyone! If you don’t already know I love to create junk journals and my own traveler notebooks and I always have leftover scraps of notebook and grid paper that I can’t make myself throw away so I thought why not make a mini notebook from my scraps?
I am excited to share that I have a notebook I created up on Canvas Corp’s blog today! For more info and photos you can find the post HERE.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Wednesday is wonderful and enjoy creating!
Hi everyone! I am here to share a wedding album that I was asked to create for a friend. Be sure to get comfy since this post is photo loaded. 😊 The requirements for this album it had to be at least 5″x7″, ten pages for a total of twenty pages front and back, be vintage and use the colors peach and gray.
Well, I had leftover peach cardstock from my son and daughter in law’s wedding but a lot of the cardstock had gold mixed in the design. So I, of course, had to make some trips to Hobby Lobby, Michael’s, etc. 😉 to find gray and peach cardstock and peach colored flowers.
Next I had to decide on what to create the cover out of and how thick the spine needed to be to hold all the embellishments and other goodies. I sure didn’t want the album to look like a “V” once I finished…I’ve created a few like that in the past since I didn’t allow for all the embellishments. 😒
After much thought I decided a three inch spine should be wide enough. I used an empty saltine box and cut down and scored to create a 5 1/2″x71/2″ for the front and back and the three inch spine. I covered the front and back with cardstock and the spine with five different types of lace.
The inside there are five signatures with two 5″x7″ pages per signature. I added a variety of patterned cardstock, diecuts and embellishments to each page. Through out the album is pockets,tags and pull outs for journaling or where more photos can be added.
I was also asked to somehow incorporate the wedding invitation into the album. I had to cut down the invitation since it was larger than the album but I was able to make it work by adding an open sided pocket to the inside cover.
The next several pages I am not going to add any comments so if you have any questions about how I create the album or what type of products where used please let me know.
