Tea Time with Alice and the Queen of Hearts Tag

Hi everyone! I’m back this month with a whimsical tag I created for Blank Page Muse using the Tea Time Alice and Peek into Wonderland Stamp Set, Bedazzled Diamonds Stencil and Cyan Consortium Paper Pack. Let’s get started!

First, I placed both stamps from the Tea Time Alice and Peek into Wonderland Stamp Set onto the MISTI Stamping Tool, inked with Waterproof Black Ink and stamped onto a piece of Watercolor Paper. I used an assortment of watercolors and inks to paint Alice, the Queen of Hearts and rabbit and once dry I fussy cut the image out.

I cut a 8″x3 3/4″ tag from watercolor paper. I added a combination of black and light blue ink to the tag and once dry I used a Mini Polka Dot Embossing Folder to emboss. I lightly inked over the raised areas with a blue chalk ink.

I used the largest tag thinlit from the Tag Collection Thinlits and cut a tag from one of the cardstocks from the Cyan Consortium Paper Pack. I placed the Bedazzled Diamonds Stencil over the tag and applied Crackle Distressed Texture Paste, removed the stencil and once dry I applied a black ink over the stenciled area.

Next I placed and adhered the smaller tag slightly off the larger tag. From my stash I glued an ornate frame diecut onto the tag and placed patterned strips of cardstock on top of that. I placed Foam Pop Dots to the back of the stamped image before placing onto the tag.

I placed playing cards under one side of the stamped image. I used an assortment of flowers and leaves from the following thinlits: Folio Page Pocket and Flowers and Shadow Box Elements Thinlits. I shaped the flowers and leaves with a Stylus, glued together, added either sequin and gems to the center of each before placing onto the tag.

I added loops of thread, pearl sprays and Stickles to the stamped image to finish.

Oh so Cold! Altered Envelope Journal

Hi everyone! I’m back today with an altered envelope that I turned into a junk journal. For the base (cover) I used a business size #10 envelope and some dies, thinlits and embossing folders by Eileen Hull. Let’s get started!

I gathered all the scraps of cardstock, embellishments and bits and pieces to make this journal. As I have said in past blog posts this is a great way to use up what you have laying around from other projects.

The first thing I did was seal the flap of the envelope and then fold in half to create the cover. I cut a piece of cardstock and an old dictionary page to fit inside. I also added a fussy cut polar bear printable as the third page. I folded all together, punched two holes into the spine of the cover and all inside pages. I threaded a needle with ribbon and sewed and tied all together into a nice little bow on the spine.

I adhered patterned cardstock to the inside and outside of the cover. I layered more patterned cardstock and glued to the cover but I left the top open so I could add tags to the pocket. I fussy cut one the little girls that I printed from the Let it Snow Art Dolls Printables. I had actually printed this out for a Christmas project but they didn’t print correctly. I couldn’t throw out the printable and I figured since this was a junk journal why not use it? I adhered the girl image onto the “pocket”, cut and glued two snowflakes together from the Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits and cut a label from the Library Pocket ATC and Tabs Thinlits and glued onto the snowflake. I put together the word “Journal” from alphabet stickers and placed onto the label.

I cut a pocket from the Frame Pocket Journal Diecut and embossed with the 3D Tablecloth Embossing Folder, folded the flaps and adhered to the inside cover. I dug out a paper snowflake, glued to the pocket and added a button to the center of it. I added tags to the pocket. One of the tags I added one of the fussy cut girl, plus a tab which I cut from the Library Pocket ATC and Tabs Thinlits and a chipboard snowflake to the tab. The opposite page I decorated with lace, bits of velvet ribbon and a scrap of patterned cardstock.

The next pages I added scraps of cardstock, Ric Rac and a stamped snowman image to the page. The opposite page I cut and distressed a piece of patterned cardstock and adhered to the page. I cut the larger snowflake from Tim Holtz’s 3D Snowflake Impresslits (retired), placed onto the page along with a strip of patterned cardstock and a sequin which I glued to the center of the snowflake.

The next set of pages I glued a strip of patterned cardstock to the top of the page, placed the chipboard “winter” sentiment on the strip along with scraps of cardstock, vellum and a small snowflake from Doodle Christmas Thinlits. The other page I cut and distressed a piece of patterned cardstock, glued to the page, placed a chipboard “oh so cold!” sentiment onto the patterned cardstock along with another small snowflake. I didn’t add any embellishments to the back side of the polar bear printable.

The next set of pages I placed a small penguin behind a specimen slide that I had in my stash and glued onto the page. I finished by adding the “snow fun!” sentiment, mini snowflake and chipboard snowflakes. The opposite page I added various laces, sheer fabric and Ric Rac to the page.

The last page I adhered scraps of patterned cardstock to the top and a smaller snowflake from the 3D Snowflake Impresslits and a sequin to the center of the snowflake.

I applied Stickles to the girls bonnets and small black gems to the coat of the taller girl to finish.

A Faithful Friend Tag

Hi everyone! It’s hard to believe the month is almost gone. I set some “loose yearly goals” for this coming year where I would like to at least do four blog posts a month…preferably more. Well, this is my fourth post of the month…yay!

Anyways, I would like to share a tag I created using the largest tag from the Tag Collection Thinlits by Tim Holtz and the 3D Silverware Embossing Folder by Eileen Hull. Let’s get started!

I cut from Kraft Cardstock the largest tag and the reinforcer from the Tag Collection Thinlits. I placed the tag into the 3D Silverware Embossing Folder and run through the Diecut Machine. Next, I applied Rose Gold Luster Wax over the embossed image on the tag and a soft blue chalk ink to add a weathered look to the tag.

I dug into my scrap pile of cardstock, rough upped the edges of the larger piece and added two smaller patterned pieces of cardstocks (the larger cardstock piece slightly hung off the tag while the other two pieces of cardstock were placed under the larger piece) and adhered all to the base of the tag.

I had a scrap piece of the Skinny Mini Elements Thinlits that I tore and placed onto the tag. I selected the two women diecut from the Mini Paper Dolls Pack and glued to the tag along with a scrap of sheer fabric. I picked the “A faithful friend” sentiment from the Clippings Cardstock Stickers and placed above the women. I cut two flowers and a leaf sprig from the Folio Page Pocket and Flowers Thinlits, shaped with a Stylus, adhered the flowers on top of each other and glued the leaf sprig to the back of the flower before adding to the tag. I finished by placing a Glossy Dot in the center of the flower and gluing a vintage button to the tag.

A Beary Merry Christmas Cork Journal

Hi everyone! I’m super excited to share this project with y’all. Eileen Hull’s teams were sent a package of Surfaces Cork Roll from Sizzix to create something using Eileen’s dies, thinlits and embossing folders. I used the Notepad Diecut, Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits, the label from the Card Caddy Diecut and the hinge from the Treasure Box Diecut (retired) along with some other thinlits and embossing folders from Olivia Rose and Tim Holtz. Let’s get started!

First, I gathered up all my supplies before starting.

I applied Adhesive Sheets to both side of a piece of Mat Board, cut the cork and a piece of cardstock to fit the mat board. Next I placed the diecut onto the mat board and run through the Diecut Machine. I cut the cover twice.

I placed the journal cover into the 3D Tree Rings Embossing Folder but could not get it to run through the diecut machine, which sent me into a mini panic. But after much tinkering I used two sets of cutting plates and a crease pad to emboss both covers.

I peeled the cork and mat board away from one of the tabs on the spine.

This will make the spine have a “flat” look once it is glued together.

I used a combination of chalk inks on the cover and I also applied with my finger Rose Gold Luster Wax in random spots.

I picked three different shades of green from the Surfacez Eclectic Color Collection and cut three wreaths from the Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits. I cut two “open” and wove them through the wreath that I didn’t cut and adhered to the cover.

From the same paper collection I cut out all the parts for the bear from the Doodle Christmas Thinlits and used a combo of adhesive sheets and adhesive to piece together.

I lightly inked over parts of the bear and adhered to the cover.

I punched two holes in the top and bottom of the spine with a Crop-A-Dile and set eyelets into each hole before stringing elastic cording through the holes and tying off.

I covered with cardstock a label from the Card Caddy Diecut and the hinge from the Treasure Box Diecut and adhered on top of each other before gluing to the spine.

For the booklets inside the journal I had an A6 plain planner notebook but it was too tall. No problem!

I measured and cut the notebook in half (2 7/8″) and I also added a bit of glue to the stitches on each end of each book to keep it from coming undone.

I covered each book with a festive Christmas cardstock and added a present and a tree from the Doodle Christmas Thinlits and seals from the Prize Ribbons Diecut (retired) onto each book.

I’m not sure if I’ll make a December Daily out of this or use as glue book? What would you use it as?

How to Alter a Jumbo Wintery Themed Paper Clip

Hi everyone! Have you ever wondered what to do with those jumbo paper clips that you see in the office and craft sections in store? I will show you how I altered this paper clip, using a good portion of leftovers from other projects that was on my desk, into a book mark or as a closure to a bag/gift. Let’s get started!

First, I cut to size a scrap piece of bluish cardstock from the Making Essentials Cardstock Pack to fit the paper clip. I placed one end of the cardstock into the Crochet Mandala 3D Embossing Folder and run through the Diecut Machine.

I lightly inked over the raised embossed areas, folded the non embossed area of the cardstock and slid the cardstock through the paper clip.

I added adhesive to the lower half of the non embossed flap and glued to the back of the embossed cardstock. Side note…you want the “banner” to still move freely on the paper clip so don’t glue directly to the paper clip.

I cut two small strips of glittered tulle, gathered together and staples in the middle. Side note…glue would have been a lot messier. Also I don’t think I will ever buy glitter tulle again. I left a glitter trail everywhere I moved. YIKES!

I had a leftover strip of cardstock that I embossed with a Polka Dot Embossing Folder (retired), adhered the tulle to the backside of that and then glued to the banner.

I had two leftover banners that I had cut from the Geometric Box Diecut so I decided to cut the top off of each and adhered both to the top of the banner. Another side note (apparently I’m full of them today) I had used the those shapes to created a cool little treat box for Eileen Hull’s Comfort and Joy 2022 Kickoff Event (only $20). It’s over 8 hours of different designers sharing projects to make. If you are interested you can find the link HERE to purchase. Also I cut two Snowflakes from the Wreath and Snowflake Thinlits and glued those on top of each other before adding to the banner.

I cut two snowflakes from the 3D Impresslits Snowflake Diecut (retired). The smaller snowflake I lightly inked over the raised edges of the die, added a Foam Pop Dot to the back before placing on top of the larger snowflake. I also added a sequin and gems to the center of the snowflake, glued a bow to the side and added lace to geometric shaped banner.

The larger snowflake I did the same steps as with the smaller snowflake but glued directly to the banner. While I was cleaning up my craft room I came across this half sheet of snowmen that I had stamped out multiple times. I decided to fussy cut all out and use as needed. I have no idea who made the stamp and if I find out I will update my supply list. I added a foam pop dots to the back of the snowman before placing onto the lower half of the banner. I also glued a cord bow underneath the snowman to finish.

I think it turned out pretty good considering I was, for the most part, using what I had laying on my desk. I tried it out on a book and I think it look great. I also think you could use this to keep a Christmas bag closed to give as a gift.

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.

Christmas Memories Journal

Hey everyone! I’m back this week to share my project for Eileen Hull and the theme for this month is Season’s Greetings. Next month over in Eileen Hull’s Fan Club we are doing a Comfort and Joy Journal (December Daily) project with prompts and I decided I would at least get my journal cover cut out and decorated. (Trying to be a head of the game) I used the Journal Diecut for my project along with a couple other diecuts.

I cut a file folder down, still folded, to fit on top of the Journal Diecut and placed slightly past the cutting blade of the diecut (so I could have the spine intact) and run through the Diecut Machine.

This is how the cover looks once cut.

I re-enforced the spine on the outside and inside with patterned cardstock.

I adhered double mats of cardstock to the front and back covers and added a double matted banner to the lower corner of the front cover. I applied an Adhesive Sheet to a scrap of cardstock, cut the Christmas sentiment out from the Holiday Blessings Christmas Phrases Diecuts, added the “memories” sticker from the Big Chat Sticker Pad to the banner along with the Christmas diecut. I cut a piece of the puffy wreath sticker to look like it was behind the banner and added to the banner. I cut out the holly and berries from the Funky Festive Diecut Set and placed on the corner of the memories sticker.

I did add elastic cording to the spine and placed some cardstocks, wrapping paper, notebook paper, etc. but that could change. I haven’t decided if I’m going to add more pages or if I will move the pages around. I guess just what and see what I come up with. ūüėČ

Thinking of You Slimline Card

Hey everyone! I know it has been a minute since my last post but I am back with a quick card I created. Have you seen and heard of slimline cards? It apparently the newest thing to create or I’m just now seeing them (I’m always late to the party) and I thought why not try to make one myself?

The slimline card measures 3.5″x8.5″ (folded) and will fit into a number 10 size envelope ( business size). Instead of measuring and cutting the cardstock to the exact measurements I used Eileen Hull’s Journal Diecut to cut out the base of the card. All I did was fold the cardstock in half and place it where the indention in the diecut that creates the spine wouldn’t cut into the paper. (I used a different cardstock to practice on in the photo below) I used a little washi tape to hold the cardstock in place while I ran it through the Diecut Machine.

I stamped onto a piece of Watercolor Paper the butterfly from the Tim Holtz’s Perspective Stamp Set and the Thinking of You and label stamps from the Simple Sayings Stamp Set in a water proof Black Ink. I used an assortment of inks from my stash to watercolor the butterfly and once dry I fussy cut the butterfly and sentiment out. I used an oval shaped embossing folder on a piece of cardstock (this is from Brenda Walton and is retired) and two other pieces of cardstock that I adhered together to mat the butterfly. I added Foam Pop Dots to the back before placing on the card base. I also matted the sentiment with a scrap piece of cardstock and glued underneath the butterfly.

I think I will have to make more of these! They are so easy to create using the Journal Diecut to make the card base with! As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Little Snowgirl Wishes Mini Book

Hi everyone! How are you all holding up this month? I know a lot of places still have restrictions and if you live in the south it is HOT! Like upper 90’s with a heat index of over 100 HOT! My husband and I have been trying to stay as cool as possible whether right next to the air conditioner or in the pool..which the water is starting to feel like bath water…ugh! ūüėé
Well, I am finally sharing the¬†complete reveal of my project that I did a¬†sneak peek for Eileen Hull’s Chapter 3 Christmas in July blog hop. If you missed out on that post you can find the blog hop HERE.
I used a wide assortment of diecuts, Eileen Hull’s: Snowman Christmas Box, Bookmark, Tag and Pocket, Bookplate, Hinges and Label (retired), and the Credit Card Sleeve and Tags (retired) Diecuts. Tim Holtz: Christmas Diecuts and Embossing Folder (used the embossing folder on a tag) and the Holiday Words Diecuts (retired) to create the inside pages, outside cover and spine of this mini book.
I started by applying an Adhesive Sheets on the front and backside of a piece of Chipboard along with patterned cardstocks (for the book, scarf, hat and nose and the pink vellum for the snow girl body…I cut two of those) placed on top of the¬†Snowman diecuts and run through the Diecut Machine. I cut the tabs off of the box diecut and folded to create the base for the book. I¬†also put the snowgirl’s front and back together and I used black gems for the eyes instead of using¬†the diecut eyes.
The pages inside of the book I cut from the assortment of diecuts that I mentioned above. There are three signatures with three pages and one pocket per signature. I cut a piece of cardstock slightly smaller than the inside spine and measured and poked holes in all the pages, the flaps of pockets and the piece of paper.
I tied off each signature on the back side of the piece of paper and then adhered the flaps to the back side of each pocket.
I adhered the pages to the inside of the spine and used binder clips to hold them in place while the adhesive dried.
I lightly decorated with embellishments from my stash, scraps of wrapping paper, lace, pom pom trim, and packaging. 

Don’t you just love the little jingle bell hanging from the side of the mini book?
I decorated the spine with the “wishes” from the Holiday Words diecuts. I placed an adhesive sheet on a scrap of cardstock before running through the diecut machine¬†and the adhesive sheet makes it so much easier to place each letter onto the spine.
I used the reverse of the 25 diecut for the cover of the book and I added a mini snowflake ornament, sequin and flatback pearl to the cover. There you have it! If you haven’t¬†checked the latest projects by Eileen’s Inspiration Team you can find those posts¬†HERE¬†and HERE. As always if you have any question about this project please let me know.
