September Apple Harvest Tag

Hi everyone! I’m back with a quick end of the month project I created using some cut a parts and cardstock from the Authentique Calendar Collection (retired). So let’s get started!

I cut a 5″x10 1/2″ piece of patterned cardstock and a 4″x8 1/2″ plain piece of cardstock out. I cut off the top edges of both and punched a hole in the top of each tag. I also inked the edges with chalk ink.

One sheet of cardstock had an assortment of cut a parts which I cut and selected the ones I would use on the tag.

I inked edges and adhered the cut a parts to the tag. Next I diecut leaves and leaf sprigs from the Funky Foliage Thinlits, shaped with a Stylus and glued under the cut a parts.

I also decorated the other side of the tag by adhering the smaller tag slightly off center of the larger tag.

Next I glued the September, Apples tag and people picking apples cut a parts onto the tag.

I placed more of the leaves and leaf sprigs under the September and apples tags.

I finished off by adding cording and thread to the leaves on both sides of the tag.

Hey Friend Card

Hi everyone! As I’m slowly getting back into the swing of crafting, from a busy couple of months of things pertaining to family and all things summer, I want to share a card I created for Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team! This month’s theme is cards and I used the Skinny Mini Elements Thinlits along with a few other dies, embossing folder and thinlits by Eileen. So let’s get started!

I originally was going to cover a per-cut card base with the Skinny Mini Elements Thinlit and do the usual decorating. But when I I placed the Thinlits onto the piece of glittered cardstock ( I ran the die through the machine two times) it didn’t cut through. Instead of tossing I decided I would fold in half and create a card base. I did back the inside with a piece of light pink cardstock before decorating the front.

Next I cut out the circle from the Ornament Box Diecut and embossed with the Woven Leather 3D Embossing Folder. I lightly inked over the raised areas before adhering to the card base.

I dug into my big stash of scraps and cut out flowers, wreath and leaf sprigs from the following thinlits: Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits and Folio Page, Pocket and Flowers Thinlits. I placed Foam Pop Dots onto the back of two strips of patterned cardstock and placed onto the card base.

Next I glued a piece of wood looking cardstock under the raised patterned cardstock along with the wreath die.

I shaped the flowers and leaf sprigs with a Stylus and adhered to the card base.

I added Glossy Dots to the centers of each flower. Also I printed, cut and chalked the edges of a “Hey Friend!” sentiment and placed onto the card to finish.

The Door to a Home Box

Hi everyone! I’m back with the reveal of the sneak peek I shared last week featuring Eileen Hull’s Chapter 3 release! If you missed last weeks reveal you can find that post HERE and let’s get started!

I applied Adhesive Sheet to both sides of the Mat Board, placed patterned cardstock onto the adhesived mat board, placed the Skinny Mini Book Box Diecut on top of the mat board and run through the Diecut Machine. I cut two top/bottoms, and four sides.

I adhered the sides together and “peeled” the patterned cardstock and a few layers of mat board off from each of the tabs. This allows the tabs to lay down flatter once glued to the bottom of the box.

Next I did the same steps as above for the spine of the box and adhered together to create the lid.

I used a 3″ Circle Punch on a piece of cardstock and embossed with the Woven Leather 3D Embossing Folder and lightly inked over the edges with a chalk ink. I cut a circle from the Ornament Box Diecut and then placed on top of the Skinny Mini Elements Thinlit and run through the diecut machine. Before gluing both to the top of the box I doubles and cut cording and placed around the box to use as a way to secure the box’s contents when not in use.

I dug into my stash of scraps and leftover images and adhered a door and an acetate embellishment to the box. Next I cut a house and flowers from the Shadow Box Elements Thinlits and a wreath and leaf sprig from the Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits.

I adhered those pieces to the box and added gems and flat back pearls to the center of the flowers and sequins to the skinny mini element circle. I added more fun elements by digging out more embellishments from my stash, lace and old buttons to complete the top of the box.

Here’s the “Skinny” on Eileen Hull’s Chapter Three Release

“I am so excited to share Eileen Hull’s Chapter 3 Sizzix die collection! Each piece in the set stands alone but also coordinates with the others to make a truly versatile and valuable addition to your collection.

The Card Caddy Diecut can hold cards or can be turned into a unique journal. I love the shape of this box and it goes together so quickly- also fun to decorate! It will hold cards up to 5 1/4″ wide.

The ScoreBoards Skinny Mini Book Box is a really great size- it measures 6 3/4″ x 4″ with an adjustable built in spine from 3/8″ to 2 1/4″. This die may be used to create a book by die cutting two covers OR a box if you add the side pieces to the covers. If you add the box supports, it will hold mini-slimline size cards.

The Skinny Mini Elements Thinlits will cut a cool star pattern that perfectly covers the front of the Skinny Mini book or the front of a slimline card. And you can also expand the size of the design to create a whole page pattern.

The 3D folder is called Woven Leather and it looks so realistic! Makes a great background for cards, journal pages or covers.

Below I’m sharing a sneak peek of my upcoming project with the complete reveal later on in the month. Can you tell what was used from the Chapter 3 release?

The Inspiration and Educator teams has been busy creating lots of samples so please make sure to read the Eileen Hull’s blog (which you can find HERE) and be watching social media to see their makes!

Also there will be prizes! Make sure to post your answer in the comments on the Facebook/YouTube live. Are you ready? Here’s the question: “Which is your favorite Ch. 3 die and what would you make with it?” Be specific- inquiring minds want to know!

Summer is a State of Mind Tag

Hi everyone! I found an 8″x8″ Children’s Hour Collection Paper Pad (retired) by Graphic 45 in my stash of cardstock and I decided I would squeak out a tag before the month of June ended. So let’s get started!

I pulled the two sheets that were labeled June collection from the paper pad, cut a tag 7 7/8″x4 1/8″ from the patterned cardstock and cut a part the sentiments and images from the other sheet of cardstock.

I matted the image of the children with a patterned cardstock and added Foam Pop Dots to the back before placing onto the tag. I adhered the June calendar,, postage stamps and the sentiments to the children image and tag.

I cut out flowers and foliage from the Floral Garden Thinlits by I-crafter. I shaped the flowers and foliage with a Stylus, added gems to the center of the smaller flowers before placing onto the tag.

I glued lace and loops of thread to finish off this tag. I’ve already pulled the two July sheets of cardstock from the paper pad since July is only days away to start thinking about what I want to create…maybe another tag then again I’m not sure?

The Fancy Free Bee Hive

Hi everyone! I’m back this week with a extra large tag I created using the sheets of cardstocks from the June Calendar Collection (retired) by Authentique. I also used an assortment of Eileen Hull’s flowers, leaves and leaf sprig thinlits to dress up both sides of the tag. So, let’s get started!

With this June set of cardstocks, there is one patterned double sided sheet, one plain double sided sheet and one cut a part with images on one side and patterned cardstock on the other side. The first tag I cut the patterned cardstock 10 1/2″x5 1/4″ and punched a hole in the top. The second tag I cut from the plain cardstock 8 1/2″x4 1/4″ and punched a hole in the top also. I cut two of the tag reinforcers from the Waterfall Card and Tag Thinlits and adhered to the holes punched in each tag.

I placed Foam Pop Dots to the back of the plain tag and placed slightly off the larger tag. I glued midway of the smaller tag three strips of cardstock to create banners. The bee and daisy cut a part I adhered slightly off the smaller tag and arranged the two stamps and the sentiment cut a parts around the bee image.

I cut flowers, leaves and leaf sprigs from the following Thinlits: Folio Page Pocket and Flowers and Flower and Leaf Stitchlits (retired) and shaped with a Stylus, layered the flowers with leaves and added gems to the center. I finished off with loops of thread, sequins and a little bit of lace.

The other side of the tag I stacked and adhered two different patterned cardstocks slightly off center of each other along with a fairy and bee image I fussy cut. The June image I cut down and added a mat before placing on the tag along with a fussy cut image of yellow roses. I matted the “fancy-free” sentiment and placed over the fairy. The “Summer Time and the Living is Easy” sentiment I placed under the June image.

I shaped and adhered more flowers and leaves to the tag with loops of thread and a bow made from Hemp Cord to finish.

I still have more cut a parts and cardstock leftover and I’m hoping I can squeak out another tag or maybe even a card before the month is over.

You are a Natural Beauty

Hi everyone! I’m back with a project I actually created several months ago for Eileen Hull’s Chapter One Release and never got around to sharing. This project I used the Book Box Diecut but used the hinge on the shorter side of the box instead of the longer side.

I placed Adhesive Sheets on both side of the Mat Board before adding cardstock (Lakeside Blooms Paper Pad (discontinued)) to either side and running through the Diecut Machine.

I put the box together according to the directions but as I stated above I cut the hinge down to fit the side of the box because I had a “mess up” that I had to cover up…ooops!

I cut out a frame from the Books and Pages, Trinket Box and Frame Diecut (retired). I placed Foam Pop Dots on the back before placing onto the box. I used embellishments from the Vintage Artistry Sage Collection, a couple of store bought flowers and flower diecuts from the Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits to decorate the lid of the box.

I adhered lace, thread and added gems to the center of the flowers to finish off the box.

Flower and Wreath Shadow Box

Hi there! I hope everyone is enjoying warmer weather like I am. This happens to be the most favorite time of year for me, lounging in the pool, reading books, gardening and cooking out. But I still have time to craft and I want to share a project I created using a few of Eileen Hull’s diecuts and thinlits. This month’s theme over on Eileen Hull’s blog is using leftover bits and pieces and this project that I am getting ready to share is just that…a lot of leftovers. So lets get started!

I had one sheet of leftover cardstock from 49 and Market: Vintage Artistry Sage Collection and I thought that would make a great little shadow box (the cardstock is a heavy weight and is perfect for creating this box). I also had created a wedding album with this collection which you can find that post HERE.

I cut four of the smaller “frames” from the Shadow Box Frames Set 2 Thinlits, put together according to the directions and cut to fit a piece of cardstock for the back of the shadow box.

I always cut from whatever small scraps of cardstock I have leftover from previous projects leaves, flowers, etc. to have on hand. To me it’s one less step in cutting those out when in the middle of making something. The wreaths I had cut from the Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits.

I cut two a part and “wove” around the one not cut a part to make it look fuller.

I had also cut out a couple of leaf sprigs from the same wreath and snowflake thinlits and the flowers I cut from the Shadow Box Elements Thinlits. I adhered the wreath to the inside of the shadow box, shaped and glued the flower and leaves together, placed a gem in the center of the flower before adding a Foam Pop Dot to the back and placing in the center of the wreath.

I used hinges from the Treasure Box Diecut (retired) to dress up the corners of the shadow box. I also added gems to each corner of the hinges to finish off the box.

Listen Up Bird Mini Album

Hi everyone! I’m back this week with another project for Eileen Hull. If you didn’t know the theme this month on her blog is Birds, Nests and Eggs and I actually was able to finish a mini album in a bird theme using the Shadow Box Frames Set 1 Thinlits. Last week I shared a Butterfly Boy Tag as a substitute project since this has been a crazy month and wasn’t sure I would be able to crank out a bird project. But I did so let’s get started.

I cut out four of the “frames” in patterned cardstock.

I folded the smallest “tab” on all the “frames” and adhered those together along with the larger tabs to the inside of the larger tab. The larger tab will become the spine of the album.

I glued the fronts and the backs of the frames together to create the front and back covers of the album.

I cut a piece of patterned cardstock the width of the spine and then “butted” the larger tabs together and adhered the strip of patterned cardstock over the tabs. Next I cut to fit and put together the Bookbinding Thinlit and glued onto the inside of the spine. I cut out a total of eight frames, cut the larger tab off of each frames, folded the smaller tab and adhered each frame together to create four pages. Those were then glued to each “hinge” on the inside of the spine.

Now for the fun! I dug into my stash of embellishments along with using the flowers, leaves and sprigs from the Folio Page Pocket and Flower, Shadow Box Elements and Wreath and Snowflakes Thinlits and decorated each page.

I used label diecuts from the Full Size Journal Diecut, Bookplate, Hinges and Label Thinlits (retired) and flowers from theShadow Box Elements Thinlits. Also I stamped the “listen up” sentiment and a label from the Making Plans Stamp Set and used an assortment of embellishments to decorate the cover.

The Wandering Butterfly Boy

Hi everyone! I can’t believe it’s already the middle of the month and this is my first post! I’ve had a lot of behind the scenes stuff going on…some good and some not so good stuff…ugh! But anyways, I created a tag using some of Eileen Hull’s new and not so new thinlits and embossing folder. Also this month theme on Eileen’s blog is Birds, Nests and Eggs and even though my butterfly boy isn’t a bird (he has wings though and that kind of counts, right?) I wanted to share. So let’s get started!

I had a sheet of gel pressed cardstock leftover from the collab with Eileen Hull and Gel Press that I cut into a tag. You can find those posts HERE and HERE. I embossed the tag with the Crochet Mandala 3D Embossing Folder, lightly inked over the raised areas with a Dark Blue Chalk Ink, added two of the “stamp” dies from the Snail Mail Thinlit, along with a strip of patterned cardstock and a circle punch which I folded around the side of the tag.

Next I rolled up and distressed two pieces of patterned cardstock and “roughing up” the edges and inked. I adhered both to the top edge of the stamp die and added loops of thread and inked up cheese cloth. I used the flowers and vine from the Shadow Box Elements, flowers and leaf sprig from the Folio Page Pocket and Flower Thinlits along with gems for the center of the flowers to decorate the “logs”. I applied an Adhesive Sheet to the back of a scrap of cardstock and cut out the word “Wonder” from the Journaling Words Thinlits (retired).

I printed (the head and body in two different sizes) and fussy cut out both along with the butterfly wings and frog. I found this printable on Etsy and it’s called The Steampunk Fairy Boys and is by itKuPiLLiimaginarium. I added Foam Pop Dots to the back before placing onto the tag. I finished off by applying Stickles to the wings, cap and buttons on the boy’s jacket.

There you have it! If you haven’t been by Eileen’s blog lately you can find the latest from the Inspiration and Educator Teams HERE and HERE.
