Tsunami Rose Designs: Traveler's Notebook

Hi everyone! I am here today to share my design team project for Tsunami Rose Designs.
I decide instead of a typical junk journal I would created a ten pages traveler's notebook for my dori. I had a leftover file folder that I had used to make a dash board for my planner. I rounded the corners and folded in half to create a 4"x7 1/2" cover for my traveler's notebook.


I had leftover printables from the following kits from Tsunami Rose Designs: Tea Party Desserts, Small Mason Jars Collections 1, Decoupage Flowers Set #2 and Printable Ephemera Set # 8 - Vintage Childrens Photos which I used throughout the notebook.


Next I cut ten sheets of grid cardstock to fit the inside of the notebook and sewed to the inside cover.


In the center of the notebook I used one of the envelopes from the Tea Party Desserts as a pocket. Before adhering it together I punched the holes and stitched to the center and then glued together.


I used a variety of leftover scraps of cardstock, embellishments and trim to dress up the pages but tried to not over do it.


I added plenty of tuck spots throughout the notebook. Even though the mason jars are small I enlarged some for larger journaling spots. The Lush Soft tag is off of a pair of jeans I purchase and I thought it would be cute addition to the page.


The back side of the lush soft tag I fussy cut a bouquet of flowers and add tiny gems to the centers of each flower along with Stickles to the leaves for a glittery touch.


I adhered a small mason jar to the corner as a pocket and added several printables for tons of journaling opportunities.


I side view of the notebook not too chunky...just the right size. :-)


I've added it to my dori and now it is ready for me to add lists, notes and journaling to. 


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!

Eileen Hull: Season's Greetings Gift Card Holder

Hi everyone! I am back with a quick gift card holder for this month's blog hop with DCWV and Eileen Hull! If you are like me and you give a lot of gift cards at Christmas but don't have them on hand or the wrong theme this House Gift Card Holder is the perfect solution.


I started by cutting two of the house dies from the DCWV Cranberry Christmas Collection. The lighter patterned cardstock I cut a part and adhered to the inside of the card (the cardstock that will be seen once the flip/door is open on the card....back wall and door). Next I glued the sides and once dry I inked the edges.


I added trim, Ric Rac and button to the roof of the house and tied gold metallic thread around the button. From the cut a parts in the same collection I use my circle punch to punch out the snowflake. I adhered the top portion of the circle to the card, added a Dew Drop and sequins. This will keep the flip/door closed. Also from the same cut a parts I added the season's greeting sentiment to the door and I adhered a dew drop and sequins to create a door knob.
This is a very easy card to create and you can knock out several in an hour!


Also I would like to submit this gift card holder for the following challenge:


Be sure to check out this past month's projects from the Inspiration Team. You can find the post HERE, HERE and HERE and DCWV HERE. As always if you have any questions please let me know.

Eileen Hull: Enjoy Treat Pocket

Hi everyone! Today I am sharing my project that I created for the Winter Wonderland Blog Hop! The inspiration team from Eileen Hull's and the DCWV design teams have teamed up this month to create some fun holiday projects!


I started with the Flower Pocket diecut which I cut it from matboard and two sheets of gold patterned cardstock from the Cranberry Christmas Collection from DCWV. I cut out and and put together according to the directions.

I punched out an assortment of snowflakes and an Enjoy sentiment from the DCWV DIY Project Stack Gift Decor Collection.  I adhered these along with a bow I made from gold thread and miniature gold Christmas trims.


I added some sequins, Dew Drops and a button to dress up the flower, snowflake and tag.


I filled up the pocket with candy and now it is ready to give as a gift! How easy is that? As always if you have any questions please let me know.

Butterfly House and a Reindeer Card

Hi everyone! I wanted to hop on the blog and share a couple of projects I created over three years ago for a Stamper's Sampler magazine call. I mailed these off May of 2013 with the hopes of maybe they would be selected for the magazine. I figured after this amount of time it wasn't selected. 
The first project was for the template challenge in the magazine which was butterflies. I started with Eileen Hull's House Gift Card Holder and cut out a house diecut and embossed with one of Tim Holtz's embossing folders (if I find the name of the folder I will update my blog...sorry three years has gone by you know :-( ). The butterfly template I printed off in several different sizes on copy paper, cut out, traced on cardstock, cut those out, stamped and adhered to the front of the house. I did add a pull out with the word "FLY" to the tab.


The second project is a 3"x6" Christmas card I created using Robin's Nest cardstock and Dew Drops. I so love the reindeer stamp I used!


Maybe there is still I chance it will be selected for a future Stamper's Sampler magazine? Who know? :-) But I wanted to share these with you. If you do have any questions about either one of these projects please let me know.


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

Tsunami Rose Design: Tea Party Dessert Cards

Hi everyone! I am here to share my project for Tsunami Rose Designs! This month I used the following Tea Party Desserts and Tea Party Desserts Add On kits to create three cards.
I will start with the first card...which is my favorite...I cut and folded a 5 1/2"x5 1/2" piece of kraft cardstock for my card base. I had leftover piece of printable large enough to frame the base of the card which I adhered along with a doily to the front of the card.


I cut out one of the envelopes from the kit, put together and inked the edges before adhering to the bottom corner of the card.


The leftover bits from the flowers, leaves and teapot I had fussy cut I didn't throw these away but crinkled, rolled up, distressed and inked and added as filler in the pocket. Next I filled in blank spots the fussy cut flowers and teapot. I also added the sentiment in the bottom corner of the card.


I added a couple of flowers, lace, pearl sprays and pink thread to finish off these card.


The next card I cut and folded a page from the kit to create the base for the card. I fussy cut the signage/flowers and birthday cake out and added to a doily and patterned cardstock.


I added Stickles to the cake and once dry I added tiny gems to the center of the flowers that are on the cake. I also adhered a flower, some leaves, thread, trim and a birthday sentiment that I had printed from the computer to finish this card off.


The last card I cut and folded a 4"x6" piece of kraft cardstock for the base of my card and added a piece of leftover printable to the base along with a doily. I then adhered a banner and the chocolate image to the card. 

Next I embellished the daisies with buttons, sequins and Dew Drops.  The sentiment I printed from the computer and I finished off the card with a flower,thread and a pearl spray.


The cake and chocolate cards are so easy to put together and only took me about and hour (minus fussy cutting) and now are ready for when I need a card to send to my friends or family. I tend to do all my fussy cutting while watching TV or if I have to wait at the doctor's office...it makes time go quicker ;-)
Below are the links to both of the kits and they are only $5 each and you get so many printables with each kit!





Be sure to stop by the Tsunami Rose Designs Blog for inspiration and join their Facebook group Tsunami Rose Design Fans too. As always if you have any questions about these cards please let me know.
I would like to submit these cards for the following challenges:
Crafting with Attitude: Challenge 20
Word Art Wednesday: Challenges Weeks #252-#253 Anything Goes
