It's a Paper Flower Party with Eileen Hull!

Hi everyone! I am here to share a project I created using diecuts from Eileen Hull's newest collection that will becoming out in May. Since I love working with flowers diecuts I am so excited about all the new and re-release diecuts coming out!

The Flower Pocket project I actually created last year for display in Eileen's booth at CHA and I am now able to share it.

I adhered the box together according to the directions and then Mod Podge pieces of an old sewing pattern to the outside and inside of the Flower Pocket. The Heart and Soul Flower Diecut I cut one flower from white cardstock along with a leaf from the Spring Leaves Diecut.

I spritzed the flowers with Wedding Pink and the leaf with Moss glimmer mists. I put those to the side and let dry completely before shaping them.

I glued the flower shapes together along with the leaf and then added a vintage button and a Dew Drop to the center of the flower. I also added pom pom trim, Lace, thread and cording to finish off the box.
I foresee adding goodies to these flower boxes and giving them as gifts in the near future. There are so many ways you can use these!

If you would like to catch up on what the Inspiration Team has created you can find the posts HERE and HERE.
If you have any questions about this project please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is awesome and enjoy creating!

Crafty Card Gallery: You Make Everything Bloom

Hi everyone! I am back to share a card I created from the Crafty Card Gallery blog and this month's challenge is flowers. I went with pre-made card from K and Company. All I had to do was fold the card in half and the base of my card was ready to decorate. I had actually started this card several months ago. I had added the doily and then put it aside.

I cut from the Beaded Circles Spellbinders die a circle in a bright patterned yellow cardstock and adhered it on the doily. I added various scraps of patterned cardstock on top of the doily and circle.

I printed the garden girl from the computer and fussy cut out and added a line of glue down the middle of the image. and placed on the card. I didn't want to add glue all over because I need to be able to add flowers, thread and tulle under the image. I punched leaves and small of the flowers from cardstock and shaped and adhered around the girl.

The sentiment is a stamp from Unity Stamp Company. I stamped, cut and adhered to the top corner of the card. I added another flower along Dew Drops and pearl sprays to finish off the card.
Also I would like to submit my card to the following challenges:
And as always if you have any questions about this card please let me know.

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

Rosebud Journal

Hi everyone! It been awhile since my last post but I started phase four of remodeling. First I had to move furniture around and then cover everything in plastic before I could start scraping popcorn off of the ceiling in the den/breakfast nook/kitchen. I would have been finished but I came down with sinus/cold crud and I spent three days very medicated and sleeping on and off but I'm finally feeling better even though I don't sound it...imagine man voice...ick. :-(
Anyway I had started and finished this little journal last month but hadn't got around to photographing it until today so I thought I would share. :-)

I started with Eileen Hull's Passport Diecut which I cut both covers from Matboard.
I wanted six signatures for my journal instead of three like was on the diecut so I created a pattern and used that to cut a spine from the Grey Paper Leather.

I punched holes for the signatures in the Paper Leather and then embossed with Brenda Walton's Floral Tapestry embossing folder (retired) and lightly inked it with chalk ink to bring out the embossing.

I keep the cover simple by only adding some Ric Rac, patterned cardstock and diecuts and the journal sentiment which I printed from the computer.

There are six papers per signature which I used a mix of scrapbook paper, doilies, mini paper bags, envelopes and cards. I used grey cording to attach the papers to the spine.

Now this little journal is ready for journaling, doodles and photos ( perfect size for Instax photos). 

If you have any questions about this project let me know. Now back to working on these ceilings. :-p

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