Eileen Hull: Party Flower Gift Bags

Hi everyone! I'm here to share my Inspiration Team project this month for Eileen Hull and this month's theme is party planning. I have had this set of gift bags I had bought at Target in the Dollar spot laying around and thought wouldn't it be nice to dress them up with some flowers???

So I cut a set of Romance Flowers Diecuts from white cardstock and painted all with watercolors and let dry.

I shaped slightly with a stylus and adhered a button and dew drop to the center and cut three Spring Leaves Diecuts (one for the other gift bag). I shaped both leaves and glued one to the back of the flowers along with twine and gold metallic thread. Once all that was dry I adhered the flower to the corner of the gift bag.

 I cut three sets of Heart and Soul Flower Diecuts out, shaped, glued together and add a button to the center. 

Next I added two Spring Leaves Diecuts and gold metallic thread to the back of the flower.

Now these little gift bags are all dressed up and ready for gift giving!

If you have missed some of the other design teams awesome party ideas be sure to hop over to Eileen's blog and see all their craftiness.

Happy Holidays Reindeer Card

Hi everyone! I am here to share a really quick Christmas card (yep I've been making Christmas cards ;-) ) I created using cardstock from the Lost and Found Christmas 6"x6" Pad from My Mind's Eye. I folded the 6"x6" piece of cardstock in half to create a 3"x6" card base. I cut two stripes of plain cardstock and patterned cardstock and adhered to the center of the card base.

I cut a Beaded Circles (Spellbinders) and a small Scalloped circle (discontinued Stampin' Up! Sizzix Diecut) which I embossed with Powdered Sugar Embossing Folder.

I used the Reindeer Diecut and cut part of the head from Gold Glitter Chipboard and glued in the center of the scalloped circle. I added a small red gem for the nose and then fussy cut a "Happy Holidays" sentiment from the Lost and Found Christmas Collection. This was a very easy and quick card to put together in no time at all.
In the next week I will be sharing more Christmas cards as time permits and if you have any questions about this card please let me know. :-)

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

Beacon Adhesives: Hello Beautiful Flip Book

Hi everyone! It's me, Tonya and I am back with another project for the Beacon Adhesive Pop Up!

This time I created a flip book from a variety of products from DCWV and DecoArt. I used the file diecut from the 7gypsies: Gypsy Files Stamp and Diecut Collection (discontinued) and cut four file diecuts from Paint & Create Card Set and the Cut A Part sheet from the Classy Copper Collection.

I dug out several of my punches and using cardstock from the Mixed Media 6"x6" Pad from DCWV. 

I embellished with leftover scraps from the card and Classy Copper Collection.

The card I cut and created files out of I dipped an empty toilet paper roll into Deco Art Teal Mint paint and randomly stamped circles on the front and back of each file.

Once the paint was dry on the two files I used the little set of water colors and splattered paint on the front and back and let dry.

I punched a small hole in the top of each tab and ran twine though and tied off with a bow.

The little girl images are from the Land of Nob blog which is no longer available. I printed out each and fussy cut out.

I used scraps of lace and trim that I had stashed away along with thread and of course I used my trusty bottle of Zip Dry Adhesive. :-)

This is the first attempt at trying to make a flip book and I hope you enjoyed it. If you have any questions about this project please let me know.

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

Beacon Adhesives: Stay Classy Beautiful Card

Hi everyone! It's me Tonya and I am super to excited to be part of the Pop Up with Beacon Adhesive. DCWV, DecoArt and Favor Crafts!

I started with the Classy Copper Premium Pad from DCWV for this card that I created. I cut and folded a piece of patterned cardstock to a 6"x6" base for the card. I then cut a different  6"x5" piece of patterned cardstock, distressed the edges, inked and adhered to the base of the card. The pink verbiage cardstock I punched with a decorative punch and added to the base.

The woman image I found on The Land of Nod blog which is no longer there or I would include the link to the blog. I printed the image, fussy cut out but before adhering the image to the base. I cut a scalloped diecut from Beaded Circles from Spellbinders which I glued to the back of a doily and then added off center of the card.

I cut a banner from the copper embossed cardstock (so in love with the copper) and one of the cut a parts and I cut from the pink verbiage cardstock beautiful and used my favorite go to Zip Dry adhesive to glue everything together.

The lace, trim and button I used 3 in 1 adhesive since it is a quick drying glue. No holding everything in place while I waited for it to dry.

I finished off the card with sequins and a dew drop and now it is ready to give to one of my sweet and beautiful friends. If you have any questions about this card please let me know.

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

Tsunami Rose Designs: Firmin Riviere Junk Journal

Hi everyone! I am here to share my very first project as a design team member with Tsunami Rose Designs!!!

I used a variety of printables from Tsunami Rose's etsy shop for this journal. Besides the printables being gorgeous they are ALL 50% off until September 1st...meaning everything in the shop is $2.50 including journaling kits!!! :-)

For the base of my junk journal I started with a file folder.  I cut the folder down with the front and back being 5 3/4"x8 5/8" with a 1 1/2" and 2" fold over for tuck spots inside and the spine being 1 1/2" wide.

I adhered leftover cardstock/scrapbook paper to the covers both inside and out along with printables from Collage Cards Set 2 and Ephemera Set 3. I covered the spine with lace. I used a combination of Zip Dry and 3 in 1 adhesives since everything won't come apart and the 3 in 1 "grabs" and dries quickly. Both adhesives are made by Beacon Adhesives.

This is a view of the cover before folded.

And the inside before the flaps are folded down and adhered to create pockets.

I coffee dyed regular copy paper...my first time. It's a lot of work but looks great. :-)

The journal has three signatures with eight papers per signature.

I used the Ephemera Set 3 for these pages. The pull out is actually a small booklet. I folded the printable in half and added coffee dyed notebook paper along with scraps of cardstock, rub ons and some of the printables I fussy cut and added to the pages too. 

I used the Vintage Shipping Tag Collection on these pages along with some other free printables that can be found on the Tsunami Rose Designs blog.

I created pockets out of some of the printables and I added some of the Library Cards 2 Set 3 through out the journal. Also I used a little bag from an order I had received and a coin roll as a page tab.

More free printables from the blog. The one with the kitten I fussy cut and adhered the corners to the tag to create a pocket and then added more printables as tags.

I cut the bottoms off of two of the tags from the Vintage Shipping Tag Collection, the tiny row of roses and fussy cut those out and added to both sides of the decorative gift bag. Then I punched holes in the tags and added fiber to the tops of them.

Even though I used a variety of printables from Tsunami Rose's etsy shop instead of a kit I think the journal has turned out lovely.

There you have it my very chunky junk journal using what I have from my craft room and printables from Tsunami Rose Designs!  If you want to purchase, check out the blog to see what the other designers are up, like her Facebook page or join the Facebook group all of the links are below.

Entire shop 50% off until Sept. 1 : https://www.etsy.com/shop/TsunamiRo...

As always if you have any questions about this junk journal please let me know. Also I will try and do a video or periscope at a later date. I need quiet time and the family isn't cooperating.

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

Create to Remember Journal

Hi everyone! I am here to share a quick little journal I created for Eileen Hull's Inspiration Team. I used the Passport Book Diecut and cut the spine and covers from Mat Board. Then from patterned cardstock I cut four covers for the insides and outsides of the journal, embossed and painted the spine and then adhered everything together.

Also the team is collaborating with Crescent Products this month and I used Rendr Paper for the inside pages on my little journal. 

This paper you can paint on both sides and there is no bleed thru on either side of the paper.

Each of the three signatures has five papers per signature. I used twine to sew in the pages.

The spine I tied off  ribbon, trim and fiber to each of the twine that is holding the pages in the journal.

Now if I want to draw or play with my watercolors I can. The journal doesn't take up a lot of room and will be easy to carry.

Be sure to hop on over to Eileen's blog to see the rest of the Inspiration Teams project and if you have any questions about this projects please let me know.

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