Mini Spring Junk Journal

Hi everyone and happy first day of Spring! I want to share a mini Spring junk journal that I created with all my leftover from my past projects that I created for ColorBox. No need to throw the extras away just add them to another project and that is what I done. 😀
Before I get started in telling how and what I used on each page...four page total...I cut and bound each page with I laid each page on top of the Movers and Shapers Book Binding Diecut with Base Tray (retired) and ran through the Diecut Machine



The cover/page one is cut from Matboard using the Books and Pages, Trinket Box and Frame Diecut and embossed with the Waffle Embossing Folder (retired). I inked the glass tray with Tutu Blends Ink, add water to ink, load paint brush and painted the front of the frame/cover and let dry. I lightly inked over and around the edges of the cover with Blush Metallic Pigment Ink.
I inked two Art Daubers, one with Canary and one with Apricot Inks from the Enchantment Petal Point Inks and ink two matboard flowers with one of each inks. I let both flowers dry. I placed the leaf sprig stamp from the Thankful Clear Stamp Set onto the MISTI Stamping Tool and inked with Mint Ink from the Enchantment Petal Point Inks and stamp onto a piece of Textured White Cardstock. I fussy cut the stamped image out. Next I placed a brad in the center of both flowers and add leaf sprigs to back of flower before adhering to the cover.




The inside cover I inked an Art Dauber with Rose Premium Dye Ink, inked a butterfly punch and once dry I adhered to the inside cover. I also added a gem to butterfly.
The front of page two I inked the Crackle Background Rollagraph (I couldn't find a link for the rollagraph but found a link for the moulding mat which is the same design just not on a roller) with Top Boss Embossing Stamp Pad and went over the Watercolor Paper page.I applied White Embossing Powder and set with Heat Tool. Once the embossed area was cool to the touch I loaded three Art Daubers with the following inks: Dandelion Premium Dye, Glacier Lake Archival and Rosebud Classic Pigment Inks and randomly inked over the whole page.
I placed the flower stamps from the Thankful Clear Stamps onto the MISTI Stamping Tool and inked two of the flowers with Peony and one flower with Pink Inks from the Enchantment Petal Point Inks and stamped onto a piece of textured white cardstock and fussy cut both out. I punched a leaf sprig from textured white cardstock  and inked the leaves with Mint Ink from the Enchantment Petal Point Inks. I then adhered a leaf and peony colored flower to the bottom corner of page two.




The back side of page two I inked the Butterfly Words Stamp with Glacier Lake Archival Ink and stamp onto a piece of texture white cardstock, fussy cut the stamped image out and adhered to backside of page two. I added a bit of trim and a button to butterfly.
The front of page three I adhered a circle and strip of patterned cardstock to coffee sleeve. I lightly watercolored a flower diecut with Tutu Blends Ink and while still damp, shaped with my hand and let dry. I added a brad to center of flower and two leaves before adhering to page.




The back side of page three I placed textured white cardstock on top of the Long Classic Scalloped Rectangles Diecut and inked an Art Dauber with Sky Blue Ink from Enchantment Petal Point Inks and ink edges of diecut and I adhered to the back of page three. I added a button to the top of the diecut.




For the pull out tag I inked the Tulip Watering Can Stamp with Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink and stamp onto a piece of watercolor paper. I inked the glass tray with Shamrock, Citronella and Heather Dyestress Blendable Dye Inks and added water to each ink and paint the tulips and leaves on the watering can. Next I fussy cut the watering can image out and adhered to tag and add clear glitter glue to image. Once dry I placed the tag inside coffee sleeve.




On page four I used a left over piece of the Tiny Dots Creative Card and adhered leftover stamped flowers, leaves and flower punches to corner of page. I added a gem to the center of one flower.




I added four Discs to each of the pages.

Botanical Wreath Tag

Hi everyone! I am back with another tag I created. I had actually created this tag for ColorBox for use in an advertisement in Creative Scrapbooker Magazine last year. I kinda let this post sit in the draft folder of my blog and never got around to posting the directions on how I made this...so here it is! 😁


I started by applying Dandelion Premium Ink to a glass tray, adding water and placing the tag into the watered down ink and removed. I cleaned off the tray and applied the following inks: Rose, Jade and Spring Premium Dye Inks to the glass tray and added water. I randomly place the Tag in the different colors of ink until desired effect was achieved. 


Once the tag dried I embossed with the English Botanical Embossing Folder.


I cut from a brown/wood looking cardstock a Wreath Diecut and inked the leaves with Ice Jade Chalk Ink. The wreath was bigger than the tag so I adhered to the front and wrap and glue the rest to the back of the tag.


Before glueing the rest of the wreath to the backside I measured and cut a piece of Yellow and Ivory Mini Dot Reverse Cardstock the size of tag and adhere to the back of the tag. 


I cut from White Cardstock flowers and leaves from the Stitchy Flowers and Leaf Diecuts and from the Flower and Leaf Stitchlits Diecuts (retired). I added Rose Premium Dye Ink to glass tray, water and painted two larger flowers and once dry shaped with a Stylus and add two sequins and a flat back pearl to the center of each flower. I inked leaves completely with Ice Jade Chalk Ink, shaped with a stylus and adhered to the backs of each flower. I shaped with a stylus three of the mini white cardstock flowers and add a gem to each center.


I tied two bows with cording and adhere to the back side of the large flowers before gluing to the tag. I finished off by adding sequins randomly to the front of the tag and cutting 8 inch piece of lace and tie to the top. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Spring Butterfly Tag

Hi everyone and happy Monday! I want to share a springy tag I created for ClearSnap!


I started by inking a glass tray with Hydrangea Blends Ink, adding water and placing the Tag in the ink mixture. The tag didn't have to be completely covered so I removed and let dry. I cleaned the glass tray and inked with Frog Blends Ink, added a small amount of water to ink and randomly lay parts of the tag in mixture, removed and let dry. Next I inked the Simple Dots Rollagraph with Glacier Lake Archival Dye Ink and roll over tag.


I placed the Tear Drop Circle Diecut on top of a piece of Textured White Cardstock and  placed between two cutting plates and ran through the Diecut Machine. I placed the first Butterfly Art Screen on top of the Tear Drop Circle Diecut and inked an Art Dauber with Citronella Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and ink over the screen and removed.


I placed the second Butterfly Art Screen directly over stenciled area of butterfly, ink art dauber with Shamrock Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and ink over screen and removed.


I placed the third Butterfly Art Screen directly over stenciled area of the butterfly, inked an art dauber with Moonstone Dyestress Blendable Dye Ink and ink over screen.  


Once I removed the screen I inked an art dauber with Old Rose Ink from the Sunset Petal Point Inks and ink over the edges of diecut. I added pop dots to the back of the Tear Drop Circle Diecut and place on top of tag. With a paper cutter I cut a piece of patterned cardstock 1 7/8"x4 1/4: and cut a "v" in the end which creates a banner. I adhered the banner to the tag.


I cut from textured white cardstock Flowers and leaves from crinoline fabric from the Journaling Cards Flowers  and Leaves DiecutsI inked an art dauber with Old Rose Ink from the Sunset Petal Point Inks and ink the edges of two of the flower diecuts, shaped and adhere both flowers together. I added a button to the center of the flower. I inked an art dauber with Olive Ink from the Sunset Petal Point Inks and ink over the crinoline fabric leaf and adhered to back of flower before adding to tag. Next I made two bows one from seaming binding and one from thread and adhered both to the corner and underneath flower.


I placed the "For Small Wonders" stamp from the Butterfly Clear Stamp Set on the MISTI Stamp Tool  Ink with Leather Premium Dye Ink and stamp onto a piece of textured white cardstock. I cut the word "Small" and "Wonders" out with a paper cutter. Cut a "v" in the end of each to create a banner and adhered both to the bottom of stenciled butterfly and under the flower. I cut three 8 inch pieces of ribbon and lace and threaded all pieces through the top of tag. Tie off and adhere a button to ribbon and lace. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Dragonfly Photo Box

Hi everyone! I am back today with a Photo Box I created using Eileen Hull's Stamp and Photo Storage Diecut and embossing powders by ColorBox. I started by cutting two Stamp and Photo Storage Diecut from Matboard using a Diecut Machine


I cut one of the flaps off of each diecut and placed one of the diecuts in the Floral Frame Embossing Folder and run through the diecut machine. I put the box together according to directions on the Stamp and Photo Storage Diecut packaging.


I used a hot glue gun to adhere the two diecuts together to create a box and I cut to fit three pieces of cardstock and adhere to the sides of the box. 


I adhered lace and flat back pearls to the bottom of the box. 


Next I cut two flowers from the Stitchy Flowers and Leaf Diecuts and punch leaves from the mini leaf punch and shape and adhere to the bottom of the box and add a flat back pearl to the center of the flower.


I used two dragonfly diecuts from my own personal stash and ink completely with Aquamarine Chalk Ink


After the ink dried I inked both with Top Box Clear Embossing Ink and added Copper Embossing Powder randomly on both dragonfly diecuts. 



I set the embossing powder with a Heat Tool and applied more Top Box Clear Embossing Ink and complete the same steps with the Gold Sparkle and Opalescent Clear Embossing Powders until desired effect is achieved.


I added adhesive to the center of one of the dragonfly diecuts and glue on top of the other dragonfly diecut. 


I bent the wings up on the dragonfly, adhere to the top of the photo box and add a flatback pearl to finish off the box.


This would be a perfect gift to hold wedding photos, graduate or personal photos in. Also below is links to most of the tools and supplies I used if you want to recreate this project for yourself. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Always be an Original Card

Hi everyone! I am back with a quick card I created using some inks and a creative card by ColorBox. Last week was very crazy because my husband had a health scare and wound up being sent to the ER by his personal doctor and then was admitted to the hospital and kept over night for a procedure. 😳 So all my big plans for being productive and posting for last week was put on hold. But anyway...lets get started!


I stamped the Escape Pigment Ink onto a glass tray, add water to each color and painted around the building images on Cityscape Creative Card


I used a "dappling effect"with the Paint Brush to create a cloudy look on the base of the card and then I let dry.


I cut two strips of patterned cardstock and adhered near the top of the card. Next I cut out one house from the House One Diecuts (Spellbinders retired) or you can cut a house out by hand. I adhered the house diecut to the card and add mini gems to the top of the house die to create a roof.


I printed from the computer the sentiment "Always be an Original", punched out with a decorative punch, inked around the edges with the Escape Pigment Ink and adhere to the card.


I punched two flowers and two leaves from patterned cardstock, shape and glue to the sentiment and house. I  also added flat back pearls to the center of each flower and adhered a couple loops of thread underneath one of the flowers. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Lucky Shamrock Tag

Hi everyone and Happy March the 1st! I wanted to start off the month by sharing a shamrock tag I created!



I started by cutting Good Luck on Ivory Cardstock 6.25"x3.125" and punching a hole at the top center of the tag.



I inked a glass tray with ColorBox Blends Leaf Ink, added water to the ink, loaded paint brush and splatter tag with mixture. I repeated Step 2 but with ColorBox Blends: Frog Ink and I let the tag dry.




I inked the Shamrock Rubber Stamp with Wicked Black Ink and stamp onto a piece of textured green cardstock. I fussy cut the shamrock image out and adhered an acrylic heart gem to the center of the shamrock image.



I inked the "lucky" sentiment from the Dress Up Stamp and Cut Set and stamp onto white cardstock, cut out and ink edges with Ice Jade Chalk Ink and cut a banner from the  piece of green cardstock, emboss with the Waffle Embossing Folder (retired). Next I inked the edges and over the embossed area with Ice Jade Chalk Ink. I adhered the sentiment to the banner and the banner to the tag. I glued the shamrock image underneath the sentiment with a small portion hanging off the tag.


I finished off the tag by cutting three 6" pieces of lace and threaded through the hole at the top of the tag, tied off with thread and adhere a button to the lace. As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.


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