Love Paper Sack Mini Album

Hi everyone!!! I have been sooooo busy creating cards, swaps and design team projects and I just haven’t got around to blogging but I’m now back to share one of my projects I created for a swap I was in on Facebook. We had to altered a 300 count matchbox into a Valentine’s Day theme and add handmade goodies inside of it. Well, I’m going to share the mini album I created using five 4″x6″ paper sacks. I did cut the tops down a little so the mini would fit into the matchbox. I used Baker’s twine to bind it together.

I used bits and pieces of leftover cardstock, scrapbook paper, lace, stickers and images to put this adorable mini together.

I also put together a package of die cuts, stickers, ribbon and dew drops so my swap partner, Norma, could add more to the pages if she wanted to.

Also I shared this mini and matchbox on Maya Roads Facebook page for a challenge they had going on…there is a chance to win a prize package. I have my fingers and toes crossed that I win something. 🙂
Come back Tuesday (treat holder) and Wednesday (matchbox)  to see what I created.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Monday is awesome and enjoy creating!!!

Banner of Love

Hi everyone! It’s me, Tonya and I’m here to share my project that I created for the Chattering Robin’s blog using the Wild About U Collection which is 20% off this month. Also we are cross promoting wonderful laser cut chipboard pieces and die cuts with Gina’s Designs. I came up with an adorable Valentine’s Day banner that I created using small 4″x6″ paper sacks, felt heart shape Christmas ornaments, red foil heart shape doilies and vintage children images some I found on the internet and one I got from a Crafty Secrets sheet of vintage images.

Mason Jar Thank You

Hi everyone and happy Friday!!! I’m back to share a quick card I created for a customer. I used half of a doily, flower diecut, sequins, twine, scraps of scrapbook paper and the Forever thanks rubber stamp from Unity Stamps and the mason jar stamp is from Inkadinkado. I used a 6″ x6″ piece of cardstock and folded to make a 3″ x 6″ card base.

The Forever thanks sentiment I stamped twice on two different colors of cardstock and cut both out and added one on top of the other to make it look like a seal. It’s a super easy card to make!!!

Thanks for stopping by, I hope your weekend is wonderful and enjoying creating!!!

Wear Your Colors with Style

Hi everyone! I hope everybody had a fun and safe 4th of July. I had plans of lounging in the pool, eating hot dogs off of the grill and being a total bum but the weather sure didn’t cooperate. Rain, rain and more rain!!! So instead of fun in the sun it was fun crafting most of the day. This is a card I created in honor of the holiday.

I used scraps of cardstock, patterned scrapbook paper, ric rac, sticker from Creative Imagination, a Dew Drop from The Robin’s Nest, circle punch, Sizzix Tim Holtz Scallop diecut, Timeless Twine, Tim Holtz cling stamps, Seamless Experience (dress form), rusted star, white acrylic paint, Mod Podge and the sentiment I typed out on my computer.  

If you have any questions please feel free to drop me a line. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!!
Enjoy creating!!!

Robin’s Nest: Stars and Stripes Forever Altered Can

Hi everyone!  
Are you loving Summer as much as I am??? I kinda go into hibernation in the Winter months but once it warms up I’m outside enjoying cookouts and time by/in the pool. Well 4th of July is almost here and I would to share a quick and simple project I created as a table decoration for the 4th. But first, before I forget, I would like to share with you that over at the Robin’s Nest store they have the Diamond Shaped Dew Drops on sale this month for 20% off. There is so many things you can use these little dew drops on…embellish layouts, make flowers, etc.  Also we have teamed up with Timeless Twine too. What a great combination huh?!?!?! 

My supplies list of what I used is below: 

Vanilla Glitter Fluer Cardstock
Red Glitter Sorbet Cardstock 
Blue Glitter Crackle Cardstock
Diamond Shaped Dew Drops
Glitter Blue Alpha Letter Stickers
White Alpha Sticker Letter
Jean Cardstock
Firecracker Aqua Blue and Cherry Red Timeless Twine
Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations On the Edge Iron Gate Diecut 
Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Scalloped Ovals Large
The Paper Studio Script Embossing Folder

Well first off you need an empty and clean can. I used a pull top can so I wouldn’t have any sharp edges on the inside because if there is a will or way I will cut myself…lol 🙂

Next I Gesso the bottom and top edge of the can. No need to do the center because you will cover that with cardstock. Once the Gesso is dry I used Folk Art Tapioca Acrylic Paint to go over what I just Gessoed. Let dry. Now cut Vanilla Glitter Fluer cardstock to fit can. Once you have done that use Mod Podge to adhere to can.

Cut a 2″ strip of Jean cardstock and cut from the iron gate diecut a piece long enough to go around the can. Next adhere to can along with lace and a 1/4″ strip of Jean cardstock to can.

Cut from Red Glitter Sobert cardstock using the largest Classic Scalloped Oval. Next emboss with the Script Embossing Folder. Cut from the Jean cardstock using the next size under the largest Classic Scalloped Oval. Now center and adhere to the front of the can along with a patriotic image of your choice.

Next make a bow with the Firecracker Aqua Blue and Cherry Red Timeless Twine. Adhere a button to the top of the bow and then shape.

Adhere to the side of the can. Next cut a strip of Firecracker Aqua Blue and Cherry Red Timeless Twine and glue one end of under the bow and the other end tie a small bow and adhere to the other side of the can.

The banners slightly fold the end and cut a small “v” out of each and adhere to the top of the twine. Next add U.S.A. to each of the banners.

Lastly add Diamond Dew Drops to the Iron Gate diecut and you are finished.

Now you have a quick decoration for the 4th of July. You can add a candle, silverware or anything your heart desires.
