So Sweet Shabby Chic Tennis Shoe

Hi everyone! I’m back with another project that I am so excited over. I have long wanted to revisit some of the diecuts that I have in my collections that I haven’t used in years. I was inspiration by @mintycraftsbycharlie on Instagram over the tennis shoe she created from cardstock and since I have the 3D Shoe Diecut #658987 (retired) that is by Eileen Hull I thought why not try and make a tennis shoe for myself?

TESH1

I applied Adhesive Sheets to both sides of a piece of Mat Board and cut and placed patterned cardstock on both sides of the piece of mat board before placing on top of the shoe diecut and running through the Diecut Machine.

TESH5

I  shaped, folded the tabs and adhered the sides of the shoe diecut to the soul diecut.

TESH7

I folded the bottom tab, shaped the “tongue diecut” and adhered to the front opening of the shoe.

TESH8

I laced up the shoe with ribbon to keep the shape of the shoe while I worked on the “toe area”. I used a scalloped circle diecut (I used a Spellbinder’s diecut that is retired) which I cut 3/4 of it in half and the other half I glued to the back heel. I started by adhering a small portion of the scalloped circle diecut to the toe.

TESH10

I cut on either side of the scalloped circles of the diecut.

TESH9

I glued the scalloped circles to either side of the shoe making sure I shaped (rounded) the toe as I applied adhesive.

TESH11

I also added tissue to the inside of the toe so if it got bumped it wouldn’t loose it shape.

TESH12

I added patterned cardstock and trim around the bottom of the shoe.

TESH4

I added gems to the scalloped circle diecut, a tab and fussy cut butterfly to the back.

TESH13

I used two different sized circle punches, fussy cut rose and I adhered all to the tongue of the shoe. So what do you think? As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

A Cup of Tea Warms the Soul Tag

Hi everyone! I wanted to hop on the blog today and share a quick tag I created using Pam Bray’s Chat Time Rubber Stamps by Emerald Creek. I received this stamp set while I was at Creativation and I was super pumped because Pam is a dear friend of mine and because I finally had my hands on one of her sets of stamps.
I started by placing the larger of the two mugs onto the MISTI Stamp Tool and stamping on a piece of patterned cardstock from the Prima Dulce Collection. I fussy cut the stamped image out and with a Craft Knife cut around the outer edge of the stamped mug to create a slit.
I already had a tag that I had added excess inks from pervious projects to so all I did was emboss it with the Brush Dot Embossing Folder and start adding bits of patterned cardstock I had laying around. Before I adhered the mug to the tag I placed one of the Paper Dolls in the slit.
I decorated the mug with flatback pearls and sequins. I also added flowers and leaves that I had cut from the Floral Garden Diecuts, I shaped the flowers and leaves and adhered loops of thread to the back before gluing to the mug. I also placed the “A Cup of Tea Warms the Soul like a Good Friend” sentiment (I cut it from a scrap piece of G45 cardstock) underneath/next to the mug. 

Next I added a bit of pom pom trim to the bottom of the tag and instead of cut off the excess I left it hanging and I tied a lace bow at the top of the tag. There you have it! I’m so happy with how it turned out and if you would like to see more of Pam’s creativity you can stop by her blog HERE. If you would like to purchase Pam’s stamps, digital images and embossing powders you can find the shop HERE

As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

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.

Lovely Butterfly Girl Mini Book

Hi everyone! I’m back today with a super quick and easy project using Eileen Hull’s newest Tiny Book Diecut!
I started by applying Adhesive Sheets to the front and back of a piece of Chipboard, adding patterned cardstock to both sides before running through the Diecut Machine
I wrapped the spine with lace and added ric rac trim to both edges of the lace. I added a leftover oval diecut, from my stash, and a little vintage girl with a butterfly sticker that I placed on the back side of the girl to the cover. I adhered a piece of pom pom trim, a sentiment, metal piece, sloppy thread bow and heart gem to  finish the cover.
I cut a couple of sheets of accounting paper to fit the inside of the book. I punched holes in the spine of the paper and cover and sewed the pages together and added to the spine.
I covered the thread where I sewed the pages into the book with ribbon and ran the ribbon underneath  the decorations on the cover to create a closure.
Now how easy was that?!?! This little book is a great way to use up those little scraps of cardstock that you have laying around in your craft room. If you would like to see more creativity stop by Eileen Hull’s blog to see what her Inspiration Team has been up to. You can find those posts HERE, HERE and HERE.

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.

Chapter Two Blog Hopping with Eileen Hull: Boho Trinket Box

Hi everyone! Today is the day! Thanks for joining us for the Eileen Hull Release Party Blog Hop! The Inspiration Team is excited they can finally share their Sizzix Chapter 2 projects. All throughout April, the designers will be sharing tutorials and videos!
The Tiny Book measures 2 1/4” x 3” and is just the right size for wallet size photos, stamps, quotes, tags or tiny cards. The Tiny Book Case is designed to hold the book, a gift card, earrings, or small treats. If you haven’t gotten your hands on a Tiny Book and Tiny Book Case yet, you can find them at your local retailer, HERE or in Eileen’s ETSY Store.
I created a little trinket box with the Tiny Book Case. I started by applying Adhesive Sheets to both sides of the Matboard before placing patterned cardstock to both sides of the matboard. I placed the diecut on top of the matboard and run through the Diecut Machine. I folded and adhered together according to the direction on the packaging.
I punched a hole with a Crop-A-Dile into the top center of the flap on the box.

I added the clap to the elastic before tying off on the inside of the box.

I adhered a couple of scalloped circle punches to the clasp along with a frozen Charlotte doll from my stash. I finished off by adhering pom pom trim to the flap, thread, a flower and leaf punch to the clasp.

Now for the fun stuff! Please hop down the list to see what the team has been working on. If you leave a “love” (comment) on each of the designer’s posts by April 6th, you will be entered to win a Tiny Book die! The winner will be announced on Eileen’s Facebook Live on Tuesday, April 7th. Pretty easy huh?

Sneak Peek of Eileen Hull’s Newest Diecut!

Hi everyone! It’s been a bit since my last blog post. I had to go to Nashville and watch my grandson for the past two weeks while my son and daughter in law work from home because of covid-19 so I didn’t get any blog posts finished but did get some crafting in after my son and daughter in law’s work day ended. I do hope everyone is taking care of themselves. 
But the reason I’m on today is I want to share a sneak peek of  my project using Eileen Hull‘s newest diecut that will be released. The Inspiration Team will be doing a blog hop April 1st and Eileen will be doing a Facebook Live that you don’t want to miss. So set your calendars and be sure to come back on April 1st to see the complete reveal and hop along with the rest of the team! I’ve also included a link to view all of Eileen Hull’s diecuts HERE.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is wonderful and enjoy creating!
