Fabric Micro Passport Planner

Hi everyone! I am here to share a micro planner I created using the Passport Diecut from Eileen Hull.


I wanted to make a planner out of fabric but I didn’t want it to be floppy so my solution was to use fusible webbing. First I cut the fabric and fusible webbing bigger than the actual diecut which you will need a total of four fabric and two fusible webbings cut off the covers and two fabrics and one webbing for the spine. 


Next I ironed the both pieces of the fabric to either side of the fusible webbing…there are directions on how to do that with fusible webbing when you purchase it…and once it is cool run it through the diecut machine to cut the covers and spine. It is ten times easier to do it this way that cut each individually and then try to iron it all together. Ask me how I know? I have already done this on one of my projects that will be shared later on. 😁 
I used Fabri-Tac Adhesive to adhered the covers and spine together according to the directions on the Passport Diecut and then I strung elastic cording through the holes in the spine and tied off according to the directions of the Journal Diecut. Since there was no way to keep the planner closed I punched a hole in the spine and added elastic cording.



The inside covers I adhered lace to create a pocket to hold journaling cards and washi tape. The tags that the washi tape are wrapped around tab closures from the Journal Diecut. I used the diecut packaging to cut these tabs and I embossed them with the Eyelet Lace Embossing Folder.


Did you know that you can use 4″x6″ journal cards in your planner? I didn’t! All you have to do is fold them in half and either staple or sewing them together to created a mini album! If you aren’t bothered with excess paper sticking out of the edge you can leave as is or cut off the excess and round the corners. I also added washi tape to the outside and inside so I wouldn’t accidentally catch my finger on the staple.


Also I added a divider to hold sticky notes on. I used the leftover piece of a file folder…you know the ones that you can purchase at Target…it is perfect since it is sturdy.


I added two micro notebooks that I had purchased from Michael’s and now the inside of the planner is complete.


The outside of the planner I trimmed the front and back with lace, trim and Ric Rac. I also added charms to the closure and spine to finish it off. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Also I would like to submit this planner for the following challenges:

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.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Wednesday is wonderful and enjoy creating!

Mini Bird Junk Journal

Hi everyone! Has the weather started warming up where you live? Here for the most part we have had days in the 70’s to upper 80’s with everything in full bloom. I think we have skipped Spring and jump right on into Summer. 😎
I wanted to share my finished junk journal with you all. Do you remember I did a how to on how to stitch this journal? If not you can find that post HERE. Well, here is the finished project!


I used a variety of scraps of cardstock, stickers and bits and pieces I had laying around to create this little journal.


I even used a paperbag that held silverware in it from Chili’s to add tags to.



The blurbs I cut from packaging and added Stickles for some interest and of course I have to always add a paper doily to any journal I create. 😊


I forgot to add that I sewed in a total of six papers and that is including the paperbag. 


I love how chunky this little journal turned out! 


I also did a short flip through video of the inside of the journal which I hope you enjoy! As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Pencil Pocket

Hi everyone! I am back with yet another project from Eileen Hull’s newest Heartfelt Diecut Collection. This time I decided to create a pencil pocket with the Journal Diecut and the best part of this is there is no sewing involved whatsoever. 😀


I started by cutting two Journal Diecut Covers from Canvas.


I pinned one side of the pocket cover down past the holes to create a flap.


I ran a line of 3 in 1 adhesive around the edge of the pocket that has the flap and then lined up and placed on top of the other and firmly pressed down to make sure the adhesive stuck together.


I added Pom Pom trim around the outer edge of the pocket.

On the back side of the pocket I added a decorative trim to cover the little holes. 😊


On the front of the pocket I adhered a large piece of lace over the top of the folded side.


Last but not lease I added three sets of velcro dots to the pocket. Now I have a stylish pencil carrier to hold all my goodies. You can see what the Eileen’s Inspiration Team has created with these diecuts HERE and HERE. Also if you have any questions about this project please let me know.


Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is awesome and enjoying!

Planner Tassels and Planner Clips

Hi everyone! I am back to share  a couple of quick and easy projects for your planner using Eileen Hull’s newest diecuts from the Heartfelt Collection. I created these for Eileen’s booth at CHA/Creativation. 
For the planner tassel I cut a couple of flowers from felt using the Stitchy Flower and Leaf Diecuts and twelve 8 inch strips of ribbon and fiber. Next I gathered all the ribbon and fiber and ran it through a small metal ring (the ring I found in the jewelry section of Hobby Lobby), folded in half and made sure it was even before tying off with thread. I adhered the flowers together with a Dew Drop and then glued on top of the thread. I cut a Ball Chain down and ran through the metal ring and then attached to the planner. 

For the planner clips I used Bird and Butterflies Diecuts and a variety of scraps of felt to cut the diecuts out. For both the bird and butterfly I adhered the pieces together and then glued to the top of a large paper clip. For the bird I added sequin, mini flower, dew drop and for the butterfly I added a scrap of lace, button, sequin and dew drop to finish both off.
All of these project took maybe an hour and that was only because I had to hunt for supplies so I would say you could knock several out if you are more organized than me. 😉
Be sure to hop over to Eileen’s BLOG and see what the Inspiration Team is up to and as always if you have any questions please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Monday is awesome and enjoy creating!

Tsunami Rose Designs: Rose Notecard Tags

Hi everyone! I am here to share three tags I created for Tsunami Rose Designs using printables out of the Ephemera Set #12Junk Journal Kit-Rose Notecards, and Rose Clipart Floral Set #14.
I started by cutting three tags from the Junk Journal Kit-Rose Notecards Set using the Tim Holtz’s Tag and Bookplate diecut. I added lace tassels to each tag which I finished off with a button and pink thread. I side note the lace had been cut from a curtain that was going to be thrown away. 😊

The first tag I fussy cut the bird cage and roses out from the Ephemera Set #12 and Rose Clipart Floral Set #14 and placed over an embossed scalloped circle. I added a line of adhesive down the back of each images. This way you can still add bits of gold thread and pearl sprays  behind the images. I also added patterned cardstock, sequins, a felt heart and trim.

The second tag I fussy cut more images from the same two kits that I had used on the tag above. Once the image were cut out I adhered the butterfly wings to the back of the dress form before gluing to the tag along with patterned cardstock. I added the flower image along with a punched and shaped flower, pearl sprays and green thread to create a quick but elegant tag.

The last tag I fussy cut the rose vase and woman from the Rose Clipart Floral Set #14. I chose to go a little quirky with this tag. I cut from patterned cardstock a Spellbinders Long Scalloped Rectangles Large and adhered off center of the tag. I then added the woman and the rose vase which I turned upside down and adhered to her head. I added a mini flat back pearl to the necklace, a sequin and gem to the center of the rose, green thread and pearl sprays to the rose vase. To finish of this tag I adhered a bit of pink velvet ribbon and button and thread.

I added Stickles to all of the flowers on the tags to give each tag a little sparkle. 😊 As always if you have any questions please let me know.

Pretty Paper Dolly

Hi everyone! I am here to share a project I have worked on and off for over a year. It has been a labor of love and sometimes hate…lol….especially when it wouldn’t go together like it was supposed to.
I found this  pattern on Silhouette but I changed it from an angel to a doll. The name of the pattern is Liberty Angel 3D Figure Part 1 Torso Arm Dress and Liberty Angel 3D Figure Part 2 Legs Wings Apron…I have no way of linking the patterns to my blog…sorry 😞 I do how ever have the tutorial from Needles ‘n’ Knowledge blog which did help in putting together my little dolly.


She is approximately 18 inches high once put together. Most of the paper collection that is used on the dress and pantaloons are from Anna Griffin Garden Party Stack. 


The arms and legs are jointed with beads and ribbon. That was one of the reasons that is took me forever was at first I had the wrong size of beads and after searching I finally found a couple of strands at Michaels on clearance.


I also added an assortment of lace to the dress which I think really “fancified” her up. 😀


Instead of using twine and twirling onto a dowel and spraying with Starch to create curls I decided to use yarn to create her hair. I cut the yarn in three different lengths and started on the back of her head and worked my way to side of the doll’s face. The bangs I butted against the longer hair and once finished I trimmed up and added a lace bow to the top of her head. 


Instead of using the banner that was included with this project I decided to use the Banners and Pennants diecuts. After cutting out and putting together I added sequins and a gem to each of the banners.



I added a little “blush” to her cheeks and a gem to her collar and wa-laa she is finally finished! I hope you enjoyed this project and if you have any questions please let me know.


Also I would like to submit this project for the following challenges:

Whimsical Heart Pocket

Hi everyone! I took a mini break from blogging and I am now back to share a project that I had actually started this past spring and then put away. I had actually cut several of these Heart Pockets Diecuts out but I hope to finish them in-between all of the other projects I have going. 😊

For this project it is best to use a double sided patterned cardstock since both sides will be seen. I put it together according to the direction with Beacon Adhesive Zip Dry glue. I added mini pom pom trim around the heart.

I cut seaming binding and adhered to the each side of the heart and then added a hot pink trim to dress up the back.

Next I added an assortment of flowers, jeweled buttons and pearl sprays to the top corner of the heart along with a bow created from seam binding.

 I added a frozen Charlotte charm and some crocheted flowers to the pocket before hanging it from a shelf. What a fun little project!
As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Christmas Time is Near

Hi everyone! Are you ready for Christmas? Me? I am almost there…I still have presents to wrap and a couple of pies to make and I will finally be able to sit back and relax for a moment. Then it will be back to getting projects ready for CHA in January.
Well, I wanted to share a bag I altered. I created this for a swap I was in with my sweet friend Lisa. I first started with a 6.25″x9.25″ kraft paper bag. I used the following cardstock collections to decorate the front and back of the bag: Prima-Sweet Peppermint, Sizzix: Brenda Walton-Merry & Bright and Crate Paper-Bundled Up. I used a scalloped edge punch to create the pocket which I glued to the bag along with a doily and two strips of cardstock. I then cut the Reindeer from Gold Glitter cardstock and adhered to the corner of the pocket. I cut verbiage and numbers from the Merry & Bright collection. The number are from the Billboard Alphabet Diecut. Once everything was cut it was added to the front of the bag.

The back of the bag I adhered cardstock, pom poms and gold trim…the trim was a last year find at Target after Christmas for 90% off! I love a great bargain!
Next I gathered goodies to fill the bag. The little notebooks I found at Target in the Dollar Spot but they where originally 6″x6″. I cut those down so they will fit into a Traveler’s Notebook. Also I cut a tag from a Sizzix diecut packaging and wrapped washi tape samples onto it.

I filled up the bag with Tags I cut from the Merry & Bright Collection. The wreath paper clip I will share how to make those in a later post 😉
I hope you like this little bag I altered and if you have any questions please let me know.

Tsunami Rose Designs: Santa Traveler’s Notebook

Hi everyone! I am here to share my project this month for Tsunami Rose Designs! I went with another traveler’s notebook since it looks like I am hooked on these. 😀
I started with a notebook divider that I had purchased from the Target Dollar Spot which I cut, rounded the corners and folded to a 7 1/2″x4″ cover for my notebook.

I cut 10 pages slightly smaller than the cover and punched holes in the spine and stitched together.

I used the following Tsunami Rose Designs collections: Clipart Christmas – Printable Ephemera Set # 10 Christmas #1 and Christmas Clipart – Printable Ephemera Set # 11 Christmas – # 2. Each collection has 30 pages for a total of 60 pages of vintage Christmas fun! And the best part is they are only $2.50 per collection!
I printed and cut out a variety of printables from both collections.

Which I adhered to the pages, added pockets and tuck spots to hold journaling cards.
I thought it would be fun to use snowflake diecuts and add those to the doilies.

The cover I used a variety of scraps of cardstock, gold trim, a doily and a snowflake diecut along with the Santa printable to create a fun and whimsical feel. I also and a few red gems to the holly leaves and Stickles to Santa’s bread to finish off my traveler’s notebook.

It is one FAT little traveler’s notebook and I so love how it turned out! As always if you have questions please let me know.

Be sure to hop over to the Tsunami Rose Designs etsy shop and pick up these printables or if you are looking for a something different there is several themes available and the best part they are only $2.50!
