Have a Happy Heart Tag

Hi everyone! Sorry to be missing in action so to speak but I have been preparing for my trip to Creativation again this year. I've been working on "Top Secret" projects for the show.😉 I do have my second project of the month that I created for Momenta that I would like to share with y'all.


I always have an extra tag laying around that I have sopped up the leftover ink from past projects that I always have on my glass tray.  So I grabbed one of those tags from my stash, extra heavy gel, palette knife and the Floral stencil out of the Floral Stencil Value 4 Sheet Pack


I placed the floral stencil on top of the tag and loaded the palette knife with extra heavy gel and applied over the stencil. I didn't completely cover the tag with heavy gel. Only in random spots on the tag.


While letting the heavy gel dry...which doesn't take that long... I inked the Love Birds Rubber Stamp with Pink to Orange Ombre Pigment Ink and stamped onto a piece of White Cardstock. I kinda cleaned the orange ink off of the stamp and inked it with the pink ink and again stamped onto a piece of cardstock. Since the ink is "juicy" I let it dry before fussy cutting the image.


I raided my scraps of patterned cardstock and adhered midway and at the bottom of the tag. I added Foam Pop Dots to the back of the stamped image and placed on the tag. Before cutting out the words "Happy" and Heart" from the Hope/Dream/Believe Diecuts I applied an Adhesive Sheet to the back of the an piece of gold metallic cardstock from the Metallic Ink Paper Pad. Once I cut out the word diecuts I removed the backing from the diecuts and placed midway of the tag.


From the Romance Pack Diecuts I cut the decorative heart bracket with heart out and adhered to the tag.


I finished the tag by adding lace, Ric Rac and gold trim to the bottom of the tag along with three glossy dots. I also added a seam binding bow to the top of the tag.


As always if you have questions about this project please let me know.  If you aren't following Momenta on their different social medias you can find them at: FacebookInstagram, twitter, Pinterest and YouTube.

Collect Beautiful Moments Box with Eileen Hull

Hi everyone! I am super excited to share Eileen Hull's newest  Gift Box with Scalloped Edges and Label Diecut from her Chapter One Collection! There is so much you can do with this diecut. The obvious is a box that you can add a gift inside if you like, a book or just decorate and use as a home decor piece.


For my project I used cardstock and cut a parts from an old Recollections paper pad I had. After I put the box together according to the directions I adhered corner protectors to each corner of the box and gems. 


  I raided my stash of paper flowers and other paper ephemera and added to the box.


I also used chipboard embellishments and stickers from Crate Paper/Maggie Holmes. I tried to add as much dimension as I could to each side. I accomplished this adding Foam Pop Dots to the back of the embellishments.


The top of the box I adhered a doily, decorative diecut, buttons, paper flower and a bow made from cording. 


For more inspiration hop on over to Eileen's blog for more creativity from her team. You can find this month's post HERE and HERE. Also if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Let it Snow Tag

Hi everyone! I am back after a little break from the holidays with my first project of the new year for Momenta! This tag takes no time to create. Maybe 30 to 45 minutes at the most but lets get started!


I started by placing a tag into the Let it Snow Embossing Folder and run through the Freestyle Die Cutting and Embossing Machine.



Next I inked three Art Daubers with the inks from the Blue to Teal Ombre Pigment Ink Pad and inked over the embossed image and edges of the tag.


I cut one Intricate Snowflakes Diecut from mint cardstock and cut three of the snowflakes from the diecut.


Next I cut one snowflake and two of the tiny star bursts in a light blue cardstock from the Let it Snow Embossing Folder and Diecuts and lightly inked the edges of all the diecuts. 


I placed Foam Pop Dots behind the snowflake and star burst dies before placing onto the tag. 


I adhered the three intricate snowflakes dies randomly on the tag along with sequins and gems.


I finished the tag by tying ribbon into a bow at the top of the tag and called it finished! 


As always if you have questions about this project please let me know.

Pastel December Daily Glue Book Journal

Hi everyone! I'm back today with my Inspiration Team project I created for Eileen Hull. Truth be told I started this December Daily in 2017. 😮 Let's face it no matter how hard I try I have never finished a December Daily. NEVER! I love looking at other peoples dailies and long to have one that has all the photos and documenting of my everyday life BUT in all honesty I don't do anything exciting. I decorate the tree, wrap presents and then I get with my family and open the presents...see nothing really exciting. So I turned this into a glue book that I have been working on for the last three years. What is a glue book? It is a journal/book that you glue whatever you want to into it...pretty simple huh? 😊


I started this December Daily by cutting the covers from a file folder using the Journal Diecut.


I extended and reinforced the spine with an extra piece of the file folder once I glued the covers together.


I decorated the cover with and assortment of Christmas cardstock, trims and embellishments. The snowman and snow woman is a printable that I sized up before printing, fussy cutting and adhering to the cover. I also glued the clasp to the inside of the cover and tied a piece of cording with a tassel on the end to use as a closure.


I covered the spine with lace, then punched holes through the lace and run the elastic cording through the holes and tied off inside. I also sewed a button to the spine to wrap the cording with tassel to.


For the inside of the journal/glue book I used blank journals that I had purchased in a package of six from Target. They are the perfect size other than I had to cut off the ends so they would fit. 


I used a deer printable that I had received in a swap to decorate the cover of the journal along with pom pom trim. On the inside cover I created a double belly band to hold scraps that will eventually make its way into this book.


This is the perfect way to use scraps of cardstock and printables.


I covered these pages with my collection of Christmas washi tape. 


I have so much Christmas Washi Tape that I had to make a flap to hold the extras.


The Happy Holidays sentiment is an envelope I cut down to create a side pocket to hold tags and printables. I added pieces of patterned cardstock and an embellishment underneath the postage stamp. 


On the other side of the page is the envelope flap that I decorated. 


On the inside of the flap I added more cardstock and a little sentiment I had cut from a piece of cardstock. On the page I created a diagonal pocket to hold Christmas tags I had pulled off of the presents I had received that were to cute to throw away. 


I also added bits of wrapping paper from past presents to the pages as a collage. There you have it a peek of some of the inside pages of my not so December Daily/Glue Book. As always if you have questions please let me know.
