Canvas Corp: Spring "Snow" Globe

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.

Happy Moments Tag

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. ūüėȬ†

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. 


I used Crate Paper’s Bloom Paper Collection on this tag and the image of the girl and chicks I purchased a few years ago but I’m not sure the name of the company or the collection?
I added the happy moments cardstock off center along with bits of lace and ribbon to dress up the little girl and chicks.
The back of the tag more cardstock from the same collection was added and¬†of course a tag wouldn’t be complete without a doily.

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.

 As always if you have any questions please let me know. Also I would like to submit this project for the following challenges:

Love You Valentine Card

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 the frame from the Book and Pages, Trinket Box and Frame which is cut from Mat Board and embossed with the Sweet Blooms Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. I spritzed with Rosey Simply Sheer Mist, let dry and lightly inked over the edges and embossing with an aloe chalk ink. I cut a floral patterned cardstock slightly larger than the oval on the frame and adhered to the base of the card before adding the frame close to the edge of the card. I also added three banners before adhering the frame down.

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 shaped all the flowers and leaves and adhered to the corner of the card. I added a brad to the larger flower, a Dew Drop to the medium size one and the small flowers I added sequins and then I applied Stickles over each floral center.
I bunched up gold thread and gold ribbon and adhered under the flowers along with felt hearts from my stash and to pearlized needles.

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.¬†

Valentine’s Day Candy Jar

Hi everyone! I am back with a very quick and easy project that I created for Valentine’s Day!¬†


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?

Well, I started by peeling the labels off, giving the jar a good washing and rubbing Goof Off to get the sticky residue off the glass.

I cut several flowers and leaves from the Stitchy Flowers and Leaf Diecuts on White Cardstock.

I spritzed the following glimmer and simply sheer mists onto a glass plate: Gold, Moss (retired), Soft Peach, Rosy and Classy Green.

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 a stylus and shaped the flower pedals and leaf and adhered together.

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.

I adhered the flower to the jar and waaaa laaaaa finished!!! Now all I have to do is add candy!

Which I did! ūüėä Once the candy is eaten a battery operated candle can be added to the jar for a nice decorative touch.¬†

Canvas Corp: Be Yourself Canvas

Hi everyone! Sorry if I have been MIA ¬†but I have been cranking out projects for Creativation/CHA ¬†which I can’t share until a later date but now I am able to share my first project of the year with y’all!¬†
Each year Canvas Corp crew members are asked to create a 4X4 canvas and this is what I came up with.
I spritzed the 4×4 Canvas with the¬†following Glimmer and Simply Sheer Mists: Bahama Blue, Verdigris and Baby Blue…if you haven’t figured out these are some of my favorite colors to work with. ūüėä Once it was dry I gathered up an assortment of Canvas Corp and 7 Gypsies cardstocks and started fussy¬†cutting and punching out before I got down to layering everything¬†onto the canvas.

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.

The banners I cut from the Architextures Market Signs cardstock and the sentiment is from the 7Gypsies Gypsy Moments: Pose and Reflections cardstock. I inked all of the edges and cut the sentiment a part before adhering to the canvas.

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.

This was definitely a fun project to create. If you have any questions about this project please let me know.
Also I would like to submit this for the following challenge:

Nurture Your Soul


Hi everyone! Can you believe that only on a couple of days it will be official Fall??? Compared to last year it is way cooler which I have mixed feeling about. Don’t get me wrong I do like it a little cooler but not to where you are turning on the heat and bundling up. Give me low 80’s during the day and upper 60’s at night year round and I am happy. ūüėä
Also I wanted to share this little Bible that I altered and it is featured over on the Canvas Corp blog today! For all the how to’s you can find the blog post HERE.

Eileen Hull’s Heartfelt House Pocket Diecut and Sizzix Maker Challenge

Hi everyone! Are you ready for the Sizzix Maker Challenge featuring Eileen Hull’s House Pocket Diecut??? I am!!!


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 thought I had taken a before photo of the roof but apparently I didn’t. I cut a 2″ x 7 3/4″ piece of matboard measure and folded at 3 7/8″. I embossed the roof and used a combination of Tattered Leather and Bronze Glimmer Mists on¬†the roof. I splattered Aloha Green Glimmer Glaze to give the roof the look of moss growing on it. After I¬†adhered the roof to the house I added real bits of dried moss and flowers to the roof.


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.


I added pieces of a bingo card to the front and back of the house. Next¬†I¬†lightly added color to the¬†little boy’s cheeks and¬†hair before adhering it and a bird that I cut from the Birds & Butterflies Diecuts¬†to¬†the front of the house. To finish both off I added a crown and party hat.


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.

Canvas Corp: Mini Spring Flowers Notebook

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.

Peach and Lace Wedding Album

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. ūüėä 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. ūüėČ 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. ūüėí

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.


The flowers I had found at Michael’s and I thought were the perfect shade of peach but after I got them home they looked more pink in color so I painted them with Soft Peach Simply Sheer Mist. It¬†definitely made a difference in the color of them.

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.

I would like to submit this project for the following challenge:
