Hi everyone! It's me, Tonya. It is hard to believe that fall and cooler weather is right around the corner but I am here to share some rolodex cards using some Halloween and Fall printables with Marie Antoinette thrown in for fun and some leftover cardstock from previous Mailbox Muse kits.
For more photos and info please check out my blog post over at Altered Pages.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your day is awesome and enjoy creating!
For the inside pages I used a combination of different cardstocks and Paper Bags to create three signatures with six papers per signature.
I cut a piece of cardstock to fit the inside of the spine. I measured every 1/2" across and punched 3 small holes a 1 1/2" a part at each 1/2" section for a total of nine holes. Then I sewed each signature into place.
Next I adhered the sewn signatures to the inside spine. Now for the fun part decorating and adding recipes! :-)

Hi everyone! I am back with part two of my Christmas ornaments that I created from the Farmhouse Christmas Fabric Panel. I used the following Tattered Angels glimmer and Chalkboard mist: Crushed Shells, Olive Vine, Rum Punch and Monolith which I spritzed each color into bowls and added a couple of drops of water to each one. I then painted each of the images I selected from the fabric panel. I let each one dry.
I then fussy cut each image out.
I cut a 6 inch piece of Natural Jute for each ornament which I folded and placed on the back side of the ornament and then I applied Mod Podge to the back and placed the Lime Green Canvas over that and let dry. Once dry I fussy cut around the image of the ornament.
I then applied more Mod Podge to the front and back of the ornament and let dry. This seals and keeps it from fraying.
Hi everyone! Can you believe it is only 6 more months and Christmas will be here?!?! Yep, I said the "C" word and in July too. Eek! But I have found out if I don't start creating some of the things now for Christmas most of the time it won't get finished since I am so busy with family get togethers, shopping, wrapping presents,etc. and that makes for one insane and crazy gal meaning me. So I am here to share a 300 count matchbox I altered using the Farmhouse Christmas Fabric Panel and cardstock from Canvas Corp. The panel I received is an assortment of different old time country farm images. I chose the sled image since it was the perfect size for the top of the matchbox. I spritzed some Tattered Angels Crushed Shells glimmer mist into a bowl and added a couple drops of water to it. Mixed and then painted the sled and once dry I fussy cut out.
I added ivory colors trim to both ends, along with buttons, flat back pearls and sequins.
The silver snowflake ornament I bought in a pack but found out when I got home one of the ends of it was cut off. Instead of throwing it away I was able to still use it by covering up the damaged end with the sled and other decorative pieces of thread, tulle, paper holly leaves and such.
There you have it one project finished and ready for Christmas. :-) Be sure to stop back by my blog Friday because I will be sharing what I did with the other half of the Farmhouse Christmas Fabric Panel I received. ;-) Also if you have any questions please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Wednesday is wonderful and enjoy creating!
Hi everyone! I am here to share a mini album I created for a friend to give as a wedding gift. The colors of the wedding are a mix of mint green, pink, gold, cream and it also had to have a vintage feel to it. The wooden frame I have had it for several years and finally found a use for it. I painted it with Tattered Angels Decor and DIY Ivory. This I used as the cover for the album. I used several different embellishments I had on hand. I so loved how the cover looks.
I cut from both of the following collections: 7 Gypsies: Harmony and My Mind's Eye: On Trend...12 pages...some I mounted to mat board with the Album Cover and Page diecut. I also used the Scalloped Envelope and Large Scalloped Square (both retired Sizzix) from Stamping' Up. The Scallop Square was used as the back cover for the album.
I LOVE the dress form and how it turned out! I fussy cut that from the Harmony Collection and bunched up tulle which I tied off with thread and embellished with a tiny flower and a tiny heart shaped gem.
Added pop dots and blue thread to the back of the embossed image and then adhere to the base of the card.
Next fussy cut the Statue of Liberty from the Bon Voyage on Ivory Cardstock. Spray a small amount of Monolith Chalkboard Glimmer Mist into a bowl. Add a little water and then paint the entire Statue of Liberty and once dry glue to the corner of the embossed image. Since I couldn't find the right sentiment for my card. I printed it from the computer. I distressed, cut both ends to create a banner, adhered on top of a strip of Red and White Mini Dot Reverse Cardstockand finished off with sequins and Dew Drops.
If you have any questions about this card please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your day is wonderful and enjoy creating!
