House Warming Invitations

Hi everyone! I am here to share three cards I created for a Canvas Corp crew challenge.

I used the 6"x6" Black & Kraft Cardstock Paper Pack which is perfect to make 3"x6" card bases with. The photo below is how I created the "peaks" of the house roof and once I measured and cut I folded sides to the inside of the card and adhered the edges along with the bottom edge to create a pocket.

I painted the Farmhouse Christmas Holiday Door Tag with Silk Glimmer Mist and Mint Julip Glimmer Mist...I sprayed this on a deposable tray and then painted onto the door. The wreath I used Moss Glimmer Mist and I let the tags dry.

I used scraps of Blue & Ivory Mini Dot Reverse, Green & Ivory Dot Reverse, Tan & Ivory French Script and I used the back side of Santa's Journey: Roof Top Cardstock to decorate the doors and to create banners for the welcome sign which was printed from the computer. Also I pulled threads from a piece of Natural Burlap to make the bows which I adhered to the bottom of each roof.

I added to the roof of each house scraps of lace, pom pom trim and rich rac and then finished off with buttons, sequins and a flat back pearl. The invite I printed from the computer and then cut to size to fit inside of the house.
If you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Supplies Used: 
Other Supplies Used: Buttons, Scalloped Oval Punch, Small Oval Punch, Sequins, Flat Back Pearls, Lace, Pom Pom Trim, Ric Rac

Parisian Toilet Paper Roll Mini Album

Hi everyone! This isn't going to be a very long post as far as talking about each page but if you have any questions about what was used or how it was put together please let me know.  I have LOTS of deadlines going on but I wanted to share a very quick post of a toilet paper roll mini album I created for my swap partner Kris. The swap is over at My Scrap Room and the TP mini had to be done in a Parisian theme with five empty TP rolls, three embellishments per page and a pull out per roll and could be bound anyway we wanted to. I chose to bind mine with the bind it all. I used the My Mind's Eye: Lost and Found Two collection, bits and pieces I had laying around and printables from Dreamz Etc.
I hope you enjoy! :-)

Lets Celebrate!

Hi everyone! I am here to share my project for the Crafty Card Gallery blog and this month's theme is birthday. I finally used my Silhouette Cameo which I have had for over a year...gasp! If I had known it would have been this easy to used I would have used it sooner. 
I used the A2 Box Card Flower file to create this adorable card and let me tell you it was sooooo easy peasy to put together.

I printed Lets Celebrate from the computer and cut the sentiment out, inked the edges and snipped the end to create a banner and then adhered to a pipe cleaner. 

I actually cut another set of flowers out because I wanted "more dimension" to the flowers. The second set of flowers I inked and shaped before adhering on top of the other flower. I added sequins and a flat back pearl to each center.

I love the way this turned out! It is so colorful and fun  and I can't wait to give it as part of a birthday gift. If you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Tattered Tangle Tea Cup

Hi everyone! I'm here to share a project I created for a challenge among the crew over at Canvas Corp. We had to showcase Tattered Tangle Paper from our point of view and this is my take on it. I must admit I struggled with this challenge. Zentangles is something I admire when other artists do it but as far as It's just not my style or so I thought. I was sent the Stripes: Tangles Paper 12x12 sheet along with a few other pieces like three months ago and as the days and then months ticked away I still hadn't come up with anything. The Zantangle stripes weren't speaking to me. I didn't want to do the obvious card or layout I wanted to do something out of the box but what? Well, the diamond shaped pattern of one of the Zentangles I thought might be cool if I could create one of the tea cups I like to make so much but the only problem the stripes weren't that big. I decided to size the tea cup and saucer template down to 5"x7"image and print, cut out and trace onto the desired print which worked out nice. Side note you will have to trace and cut the cup handle out twice and glue together so you will have a pattern on both sides.

Before adhering everything together I spritzed the Tattered Angels Silk Glimmer Mist and the Polka Dot Pink Chalkboard Glimmer Mist on a disposable plastic tray and alternated painting the diamonds in those colors and then let dry. Once I put everything together I glued tissue in the bottom of the teacup and then added the two of the Gypsy Mini Ephemera pieces to the inside of the cup and adhered lace around that to hide the tissue paper. I then added trim, flowers, pearl sprays, thread and cut leaves from scraps of Green & Ivory Dot Reverse and Green & Ivory Ribbon Stripe to finish off the tea cup.
If you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Supplies Used:

Other Supplies: Paper Flowers, Sewing Thread, Sizzix: Sizzles Little Leaves Diecut, Pearl Spray, Lace, tea cup and saucer template

Hello Spring!

Hi everyone!  I don't know about you but I am SO over all of this cold weather and I am SO ready for spring and with it the warmer weather, flowers and trees with all their green foliage. All I want to do is stay bundled up with a cover and not move off the Well, I want to share a card I created awhile back for a magazine call but it wasn't selected. The original card had ribbon with the button but after looking at it I decided I just didn't like how it looked and removed the ribbon and added the polk a dot banner and moved the button off center from the Hello Spring sentiment. 

I think the updated version looks better than the ribbon I had original used. Don't you think?

For this card I used some product that would normally be used for Christmas and beach/ocean theme projects but I thought would work perfectly with the design of the card. :-) I started out with a 5"x7" Kraft card as the base for the card. The rabbit is fussy cut from the Farmhouse Market on Ivory Cardstock and then I applied Champagne Glimmer Glaze to the image and once that dried I added a little bit of Crystal Stickles to the tail and I applied some pink chalk to the cheek of the rabbit.

I added all the different layers of cardstock to the top of the card. I used the Spellbinders Bead Circles dies and I printed the sentiment from the computer and I finished off with a button, sequin and a dew drop.
Also I would like to submit this card for the following challenge:
 I hope you like the card and if you have any questions please let me know.

Vintage Theme Junk Journal

Hi everyone! I'm here to share a junk journal I created for a swap I am in over on Swap-bot. My swap partner LisaLaughs agreed to do a journal no smaller than 4"x6" with three signatures and with each signature having 10 pieces of paper with an open theme. Since Lisa loves pink and anything vintage I tried to incorporate as much of both as I could. 
The cover of the journal is created from a file folder and I used leftover printables, rubber stamping, receipts, paperbag, envelope, paint chips, cardstock and packaging. 

I used Heidi Swapp rubber stamps all the way through the journal.

A lot of the printables I used are free from Ephemera's Vintage Garden and the little girl on the cover is from the Land of Nod Studio. I love printing on textured cardstock because it gives the printables a look of being printed on canvas. :-)

I also created a video to show what was inside and I hope you enjoy. :-)

I would like to submit this junk journal for the following challenges: 
If you have any questions about this journal or anything I used in it please let me know.

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