Butterfly Angel Journal Part One

Hi everyone! I am here today to share my project this month using Eileen Hull's ColorBox Blends with the Passport Diecut. The Inspiration Team has shown several different ways to use the ColorBox Blends and you can find those post HERE, HERE and HERE.

For my project I cut the Passport Diecut from Mat Board. I have a large piece of glass that I use as a pallet (very easy to clean afterwards) and I applied Tutu and Wildberry Blends and watered both colors down. Next I taped a doily stencil to the front cover of my book and applied both colors. Once it was dry I removed the stencil and then applied Sunshine Blends to my pallet, watered down and applied a wash to the cover.

The back cover I embossed with the Lace Medallions Embossing Folder. I watered down Wildberry and Sunshine blends and painted the cover.

While letting the covers dry I embossed the spine with Waffle Embossing Folder and inked over it with the Leaf Blends.

Before adhering the covers and spine together I added Stickles over the doily image on the front cover and once dry I splattered with Coconut and Nutmeg Blends. Adhered all pieces together and glued Ric Rac to dress up the edge of the spine.

I had made several frozen Charlotte dolls with Makers Mix but hadn't found the right project to use them in so I thought this project would be the right time to add one to the cover of my journal. I watered down the Coconut Blends and painted the first coat over the whole doll.

Once the first coat was dry I watered down Nutmeg Blends and applied randomly to the doll and once that was dry I sealed it with Fast Finish Decoupage.

I added fussy cut roses printables, twine and metallic thread to the front cover. Next I adhered butterfly wings to the back of the doll along with a bookplate to finish off the cover.

I tied three papers per signature to the inside of the journal and finished off the spine with a variety of seam binding, ribbon, lace, etc. Later this week I will be sharing the inside of my journal. So be sure to keep an eye out for that blog post. 😊
As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Also I would like to submit this project for the following challenges:
Word Art Wednesday: Challenge Weeks #270-271
Happy Little Stampers: Anything Goes with Dies Challenge
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: Fantastic Florals

Tsunami Rose Designs: Rose Notecard Tags

Hi everyone! I am here to share three tags I created for Tsunami Rose Designs using printables out of the Ephemera Set #12Junk Journal Kit-Rose Notecards, and Rose Clipart Floral Set #14.
I started by cutting three tags from the Junk Journal Kit-Rose Notecards Set using the Tim Holtz's Tag and Bookplate diecut. I added lace tassels to each tag which I finished off with a button and pink thread. I side note the lace had been cut from a curtain that was going to be thrown away. 😊

The first tag I fussy cut the bird cage and roses out from the Ephemera Set #12 and Rose Clipart Floral Set #14 and placed over an embossed scalloped circle. I added a line of adhesive down the back of each images. This way you can still add bits of gold thread and pearl sprays  behind the images. I also added patterned cardstock, sequins, a felt heart and trim.

The second tag I fussy cut more images from the same two kits that I had used on the tag above. Once the image were cut out I adhered the butterfly wings to the back of the dress form before gluing to the tag along with patterned cardstock. I added the flower image along with a punched and shaped flower, pearl sprays and green thread to create a quick but elegant tag.

The last tag I fussy cut the rose vase and woman from the Rose Clipart Floral Set #14. I chose to go a little quirky with this tag. I cut from patterned cardstock a Spellbinders Long Scalloped Rectangles Large and adhered off center of the tag. I then added the woman and the rose vase which I turned upside down and adhered to her head. I added a mini flat back pearl to the necklace, a sequin and gem to the center of the rose, green thread and pearl sprays to the rose vase. To finish of this tag I adhered a bit of pink velvet ribbon and button and thread.

I added Stickles to all of the flowers on the tags to give each tag a little sparkle. 😊 As always if you have any questions please let me know.

Remember I Love You!

Hi everyone and Happy Valentine's Day! I'm here to share a quick card I created for my honey using the Elephant diecut. I folded the Grey and Ivory Mini Dot Reverse cardstock in half and place on the diecut slightly below the cut line to create this card.

The Pink and Ivory Mini Dot Reverse and Gold and Kraft Diamond cardstocks where used along with other scraps of cardstock from my stash to create the ear, seat cover, banner and pole which was then adhered to the front of the card.

I added a felt heart from my stash, pink Ric Rac trim around the feet, sequins and Dew Drops for the eye and pole. I stamped the "Love You" sentiment on the banner and Happy Valentine's Day inside the card. As always if you have any questions about this card please let me know.
I would like to submit this card for the following challenge:
