Making Plans Release Party with Eileen Hull

Hi everyone! I’m back with a project I created using Eileen Hull’s newest stamp set called Making Plans with Maker Forte! This set of stamps has so many possibilities! From cards, tags, journals and so much more! I used these stamps on the cover of an unfinished album from a tutorial that Eileen shared on one of her Facebook Lives. Anyways, let’s get started!

I placed an assortment of the label stamps onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inked and stamped onto Cream Cardstock and various patterned scraps of cardstock. I also inked up the “dream a little” sentiment stamp and stamped onto one of the labels I had already stamped. I fussy cut all of the labels out and what I don’t use now will be used in finishing the inside…the plan is to do a part two blog post later…so stay tuned!

I also used an assortment of diecuts/thinlits to decorate the cover: Shadow Box Frames Set 02 Thinlits, Shadow Box Frames Set 01 Thinlits, Shadow Box Elements Thinlits, Mandala Thinlit, Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits and Full Size Journal Diecut. Can you spot the diecuts I used?

The label stamps are so fun to layer! I had a “partial” label diecut from the Extra Large Journal Diecut that I layered with a bookplate and the “dream a little” sentiment, used water splatter rub ons (49 and Market) and more label stamps along with several flowers, leaves gems and thread loops to finish the cover.

Be sure to stop by Eileen’s blog for more creativity from the Inspiration and Educator Teams and details on how you can purchase this stamp set. You can find the blog HERE.

Making a House a Home

Hi everyone! I’m back with the full reveal of my Eileen Hull project that I shared a sneak peek of at the beginning of the month. I used an empty ribbon spool as a jumping off point too create a little home decor piece.

The first thing I did was cut two circles in patterned cardstock from the Ornament Box Diecut and adhered to the top and bottom of the spool. I cut a strip of the same patterned cardstock and adhered around the center of the spool and added flatback pearls to the bottom lip of the inside circle. Next I cut out one wreath from the Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits and added adhesive in random spots to the back of the wreath. Side note… what I will be adding to the top will anchor down the wreath.

I cut out five of the largest trees from the Vintage Truck Box Diecut, cut the trunks off, folded all, adhere the backs of the trees together and lightly ink the edges of the tree.

I cut two houses from the Shadow Box Elements Thinlits, a small section/frame of the Shadow Box Frames Set 02 Thinlit ( measure and cut at the house die roof line), fold and glue together. I backed the inside of both houses before adhering to the front and back of the “frame”. I also folded, cut and glued a strip of cardstock to create a roof.

I adhered both the tree and house to the top of the spool and proceeded to add an assortment of flowers, vines and leaves dies from the following diecuts: Wreath and Snowflakes and Shadow Box Elements Thinlits to the top of the spool.

I also added loops of thread and hand inked cheese cloth along with sequins, gems and flatback pearls to the flowers, leaves and vines.

I cut out the home sentiment and backed with a coordinating patterned cardstock, added Foam Pop Dots to the spool and placed the sentiment onto the front of the spool to finish.

If you haven’t been to Eileen Hull’s blog lately to see what her teams have been up to you can find the latest post HERE. Also on the 26th of April Eileen will have newest release of stamps with Makers Forte so be sure to come back to my blog for my latest project.

Vintage Inspired Button Decor Piece

Hi everyone! For the month of March Eileen Hull’s Inspiration and Educator Teams have been challenged to create something using felt, fabric and fiber and this is what I came up with!

I had fun, for the most part, altering an empty Laughing Cow container and turning it into a fun home decor piece. Originally I was going to create the container where it opened and things could be stored inside but the project went side ways. UGH! I completely abandoned that idea when I couldn’t get the inside of the container fixed the way I wanted it to look.

First off, I placed the container on top of a piece of cardstock and drew around the container (twice, one each for the top and bottom of the container) and cut both circles out. I placed the circles into the 3D Vintage Button Embossing Folder and ran through the Diecut Machine. Next, I applied Gold Luster Wax lightly over the embossed button images.

I adhered the top and bottom of the container together before adding the embossed images, lace and Pom Pom trim.

I cut two Mandala Thinlits from tissue paper and folded to create a lace like trim for the top of the container.

I placed two of the button card stamps from the Button Cards #2 Stamp Set onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inked with Brown Ink and stamped onto a piece of Cream Cardstock. I cut both images out, roughed up and added ink around the edges.

The Mandala Thinlits I had cut out earlier I glued to the container.

The button cards I adhered the bottom of each to the container and placed Foam Pop Dots at the top of cards. I dug into my stash of old buttons (that had been cut off whatever that had been sewn onto) and glued to the smaller button card.

I once again dug into my stash and this time I used flowers and leaves that I had cut out from the Flowers and Leaves Journaling Cards Thinlits (retired). All I had to do was ink and shape before adding to the top of the container.

I finished off the piece by adding cording and thread bows, loose buttons, pearl sprays and a pearl top pin. I love the fact that I was able to up-cycle the cheese container and turn it into something to be used as decor in the home.

Be sure to stop by Eileen’s blog for more inspiration for both of her teams! You can find the latest posts HERE and HERE.

And I Think to Myself Card

Hi everyone! Did you know that Eileen Hull now has a line of rubber stamps? Well, she does! You can find her stamps at Maker Forte which can be found HERE.

But I’m back this week with a card I created using Eileen Hull’s newest Wonderful World of Flowers Stamp Set.

I had this 5″x6″ card base I had started but never finished (story of my life tons of unfinished projects 😉 ). So I thought this base would show case this set of stamps really well.

First I placed the flowers and sentiment onto the MISTI Stamp Tool, inked with Waterproof Black Ink onto a Heavy Weight Cardstock. Next I used a combo of Watercolors and Colored Pencils to fill in the flowers and once dry I fussy cut a part.

Before adhering the sentiment to the card base I framed the sentiment with a piece of patterned cardstock.

I cut the leaves off of the flowers before shaping all with a Stylus. I added the flowers and leaves to the sentiment along with a button and Dew Drop to the center of each flower and thread bows to finish off the card.

Be sure to stop by Eileen’s blog to see what her Inspiration and Educator Teams have been up to. You can find past posts HERE, HERE and HERE.

Designer Crafts Connection: Petal Paper Flowers Tag

Hi everyone! I am so excited to be a part of the Designer Crafts Connection group blog hop this month that is sponsored by DCWV. 
DCWV has been a long-time producer of the stack-a set of coordinated papers. Stacks have been made in so many themes and colors over the years. Happy members of the American Crafts family of products, they continue their pursuit of serving the consumer and their crafty needs with new paper stacks releasing several times a year in updated themes and colors. You can find them online and in a variety of craft stores.

Each designer received a package of Petal Paper by DCWV which can be found at Joann’s in store or online. I knew that DCWV produced the stacks but had no idea that they had a line of different colored crepe papers? Who knew? I received a package of yellow and orange petal papers and knew I had to grab some diecuts and make flowers out of this.  
I folded the paper several times and placed the flower diecuts on top of the Petal Paper and run through the diecut machine.
I added a drop of adhesive to the center of each flower diecuts, placed on top of each other and pinched in the center and shaped.
Next I inked up my glass tray and added a little water to each ink. I randomly painted a tag and once dry placed in the Fractal Embossing Folder and run through the diecut machine. I lightly inked over the edges and raised areas of the tag with a blue chalk ink. 
I raided my stash and added a frame diecut and banners I created from cardstock to the tag. I adhered the flowers, leaves and leaf sprigs to the upper and lower corners of the frame diecut.
I also glued thread and cording bows, buttons, a heart shaped gem and a bit of lace to the flowers.
I placed two cute little girls paper dolls to the tag. I also applied an adhesive sheet to the piece of cardstock before cutting out a hello diecut and placing over the little girls. I finished off by adding sequins, pearls and a ribbon bow to the top of the tag.
You can find more ideas HERE.

Hot Pink Floral Extended Mini Book Case

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a project I created using Eileen Hull’s newest Tiny Book Case Diecut with a fun added “twist”!
After applying an Adhesive Sheets to both sided of a piece of Chipboard I added patterned cardstock to each side, placed the diecut on top and run through the Diecut Machine. As in the photo below you can see where I cut an extra set of “flaps”. 
I adhered the “extra set” of flaps to the front of the case.
I also glued the bottom halves and the lid together.
I cut strips of patterned cardstock the same size as the outside and inside of the case and adhered to give it a cleaner look. 
I cut cording and tied to the closure and added a button, sequin and gem to the center of the closure.

I added an assortment of flowers and leaves, handmade and store bought, to the top of the lid along with lace, cheese cloth, thread bows and pearl sprays.
There you have it! I absolutely LOVE this bookcase diecut and how versatile this diecut is! 
For more inspiration stop by Eileen’s blog to see the latest projects from the rest of team! You can find the latest blog post HERE. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

i-crafter April Blog Hop: Shabby Chic Butterfly Gift Box

Hi everyone! I am so excited to share that I was asked to be a part of the i-crafter Inspiration Team and, of course, I said yes! With this being the first of the month it is time for the quarterly blog hop and the newest release of i-crafter diecuts!

I started by making a “practice butterfly” with the Folded Butterfly 3D (222001) before committing to the finally butterfly for my project. I cut out and folded on each of the indentions on the butterfly. 
I pinched the center of the diecut and wrapped a piece of wire around, secured and shaped. It was very easy to put together.
Now I cut out the “real butterfly” that I used for my project. The only difference I added a sequin and gem for the head and pearl top pins for the antennas.
I covered a box that I had received as a gift with patterned cardstock and trim before adhering the butterfly to the corner of the box. I also added lace, thread, jute, premade flowers, leaves and pearl sprayers to complete this gift box. 
Besides this new butterfly diecut for April these are the other diecuts being released this month.

Now for the fun stuff! Here is the line up of the rest of the i-crafter Inspiration Team! Check each blog and see what each team member has created. Also be sure to leave a little “love” (comment) on each team member’s blog. 

You can find diecuts and other i-crafter products at Simon Says Stamps and i-crafter.

February 14th Love Card and Candy Treat

Hi everyone! I’m back this week with some quick projects for Valentine’s Day using Momenta paper pads, diecuts and a few things from my own personal stash.

I started the card by cutting a piece of black cardstock from the Metallic Ink Paper Pad 4 1/4″x 51/2″ (that’s folded).
I raided my stash and adhered a doily to the front of the card. I placed a piece of Adhesive Sheet onto the backside of a piece of cardstock, placed the Love diecut from the Floral Wreath Cut and Emboss onto the cardstock and run through the Freestyle Die Cutting and Embossing Machine. I removed the backing from the “negative” of the love diecut and placed on top of the doily.
I fussy cut a bouquet of flowers from one piece floral cardstock from the Peony Paper Pad and added foam pop dots to the back before placing on the card base. From my stash I adhered “14” and “Feb” from a scrap of cardstock above and below the flowers. I finished the card off by adding messy loops of thread and glitter glue to the leaves and centers of the flowers.
I made another quick project to give as treats for the family. 
I cut two of the smaller diecuts from the  Nested Borders Rectangles Metal Diecuts (it’s a great way to use up scraps of cardstock) and adhered the smaller diecut off center. I punch a hole on each side of the larger diecut.
The love diecut that was leftover from the card and a smaller bunch of fussy cut flowers I adhered to the diecut. I adhered a button, sequin and flatback pearl to the sentiment and place a lolly pop in the puched holes. You can make several of these in an hour and these would be perfect for class parties.
As always if you have questions about these projects please let me know.  If you aren’t following Momenta on their different social medias you can find them at:
