Give a Child Wings

Hi everyone! I am here to share a quick project I created for Eileen Hull's Mixed Media May-hem Challenge for the month of May. I started with a 3"x3" Burlap Canvas which I sprayed with a combination of the following Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists: Moss, Bahama Blue and Mint Julip and the outer edges I used a Turquoise paint and then let dry.

I cut a Doily and Leaves (Holiday Greenery diecutfrom the Gypsy Moments: Take Our Breath Away cardstock. Also I used up scraps of Gypsy Moments: Express Yourself cardstock  and from the same  Holiday Greenery diecut I cut flowers. I adhered those to the canvas along with other scraps of Maritime: Coquille(shell) and Sirene(mermaid) cardstock.

On one of the edges I used the Lace diecut to add some vintage charm.

The little child is from the Tinted Babies printable. I fussy cut her out and added wings and antennas for some quirky cuteness. I cut the sentiment from the Gypsy Moments: Novel Thought cardstock, adhered to the corner and then finished off with thread and sequins. Oh and I added a little bit of stickles to the wings.
If you have any questions on this project please let me know.

Also craft room update...I am still working on getting things in order along with now remodeling what will be the craft room bathroom. I am super excited on how everything is looking. :-D
Thanks for stopping by, hope your day is awesome and enjoy creating!

Journey Tag

Hi everyone! I am here to share a quick tag that could be used as a gift tag on a present for Father's Day or it could be used in a journal or a beach layout. I had created this a while back and I am just now getting around to sharing.

I cut  1/4" off of this tag to make it 3 1/8"x6" in size and then covered with a sheet of the seahorses from the Maritime 6x6 Paper Pad which is the perfect size for this tag. I inked around the edges and added other papers from the same collection which I distressed and inked too. The "Old Salt" and "Journey" images are from the Maritime Mini Ephemera diecut pack. I fussy cut those from the same diecut and adhered to the tag along with a messy bound bunch of thread.

I fussy cut more images from the paper pad and also added some clear sequins and mini flat back pearls randomly around to give the look of bubbles . 

I cut a 6" piece of Chocolate Waxed Cotton Cord and tied to the top of the tag to finish it off. And there you have it a very simple tag that looks like a lot of time was spent on it but in reality maybe an hour at the most. :-)
If you have any questions please let me know.

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

Sugar and Spice

Hi everyone! I'm here to share a mini recipe album I created for Canvas Corp's Save a Recipe Challenge. I started with two of the Black and Ivory File Folders as the cover of for my recipe album.
First I cut the tab off of the striped folder. 

Score at the fold 1/4" three times on the back side of the striped folder.  

The diamond pattern folder cut one inch off the tab end and scored 1/4" four times on the front side of the folder. Measure and mark 1 1/2" three times down spine of folder and punch for a total of six tiny holes.

Run three Small Binding Rings through the holes.

Adhere the diamond folder on top of the striped folder.

Now for the fun part I decorated the cover with a doily, twine, flowers, a mini Recipe Card and black tulle along with a flour sack, baking powder and barely pears that I fussy cut from the General Store on Ivory Cardstock

I also used the following Tattered Angels Glimmer and Chalkboard Mists ( Moss, Mint Julip, Ruby Red Slipper, Monolith) to add a little to color to the images I fussy cut. The flour bag I also tied red burlap thread to the ends of the bag for a fun look. I added the fork and spoon from the Cutlery Set to finish off the cover.

I cut a sheet of the Bake and Can Recipe Cards a part, punched holes and added to the album and the inside cover is decorated with the Farmhouse Kitchen Stripe Cardstock.

Also I forgot to mention on the front cover I cut and adhered a 1 1/2" x5" piece of Black and Kraft Mini Dot Reverse Cardstock on top of the doily before I added all the other embellishments. I punched a hole on the overlapping tab and also punched a hole in the crease and threaded twine though both holes and tied off to create a closure.
If you have any questions about this recipe album please let me know.

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