Collaged Journal Cards Tutorial

One of my followers asked if I would share a Collaged Journal Cards Tutorial. So, that is what I’m sharing today. How to create a foundation card and then collage on top to make a really pretty journal card or could be a greeting card too.

Supplies used for the Collaged Journal Cards Tutorial.

Collaged Journal Cards Tutorial

Begin by adhering scraps of book pages, hymnals etc to a 12 x 12 sheet of Scrapbook paper. Turn the pages in different directions, don’t worry about if it is upside down, just have fun adhering the paper. I used the Glue Sponge container and a foam brush. Use what you feel works best for you. This is my version of a Franken Page foundation.

Collaged Journal Cards TutorialLay stencils over the new Franken page and add color with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist.Collaged Journal Cards Tutorial

Stamp various images on top of the new Franken page base. Rotate the stamps so that these are going in different directions. It’s okay if the image doesn’t come out perfect, this is a background and we are just creating interest.

Collaged Journal Cards TutorialOnce the stamping is done add stitches. For this session, I used a zig zag stitch, but you can use a straight stitch or other decorative stitches. Have fun adding stitches.

Collaged Journal Cards TutorialCut the Franken Page down for journal cards. In this case, I cut mine at 3 x 4 inches. If using a 12 x 12 sheet as the foundation there can be 12 journal card bases made.

Collaged Journal Cards TutorialBegin adding bits of lace and papers. I like to add color to ivory and/or white lace pieces with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. This way I don’t have to have a bunch of colors of lace I can keep that stash smaller and use the Tattered Angels as it has a wider variety of uses than a piece of colored lace.

Collaged Journal Cards TutorialThe Best Glue Ever is perfect when paired with the No-Clog Writing Cap for getting glue placed precisely. I like to add it to smaller bits so that they don’t lift from the project.

Collaged Journal Cards TutorialUse Distress ink around the edges of the papers. It gives more depth to the project. Use those tools that you own. I’ve had my Silhouette Cameo 3 for almost two years and I love using it for a variety of projects. Like the little words, I add to my projects.

Collaged Journal Cards TutorialAdding flat back rhinestones with Embellie Gellie makes it so easy. Before I would have rhinestones go flying when I used tweezers. Collaged Journal Cards TutorialDid you enjoy the Collaged Journal Cards Tutorial? Making your own collaged journal cards is easy if you just relax and let things fall into place. Don’t over think. Lay out a few items and play around with placement. If you don’t like it then change it up. Sometimes I’ll lay things out and then walk away and do other things. When I come back it becomes clear how it should be put together. Have fun and don’t stress. 😉

Garden Tour June 2018

It’s a Garden Tour June 2018, showing what has been done this year in my garden. So much more to be done, but I thought it would be fun to show you where things stand.

Garden Tour June 2018

Here is a Garden Tour June 2018 video.

The following photos have been added to my Facebook account and I thought it would be easier to display these here instead of uploading all the photos again.

Henry and I have lived in our home for 20 years and over the years we have made some improvements, but only as much as our budget allowed.

My mother lived with us for almost two years starting in 2008. While living with us she suggested that we make some changes to the yard, front, and back. The process began with a lot of digging! lol She had us create beds in many different areas around the house and we even had three raised garden beds for veggies.

Over the years I’ve added a few things here and there and had some great veggies in our raised beds. This year we decided that we would build a pergola and a deck. The deck will hold a hot tub and the Pergola Patio would be our comfy outdoor seating and entertaining area.

It was a cold winters day when they started the pergola. It didn’t take long for them to finish!

Garden Tour June 2018 Garden Tour June 2018

Garden Tour June 2018

The same crew built the deck and installed new windows on the sunroom. Since we used red cedar for the pergola they used scraps to finish out framing the windows instead of siding. We all agree that it looks really good.

Henry painted the house a pretty teal blue. Still, need to paint the front door and the siding on the front of the house. But It is looking good.

I pulled all the weeds out of the 4 x 8 raised bed and started adding plants. Most of the plants I got on clearance at Lowes. It is a great place to get plants, that for the most part, just need some water and will grow just fine.

Garden Tour June 2018 Garden Tour June 2018 Garden Tour June 2018 Garden Tour June 2018 Garden Tour June 2018 Garden Tour June 2018

One day while at Lowes picking out three lily plants one of the workers spotted my plants and asked, “If you could get a lot more lilies at a discounted price would you be interested?.” I said I just might, what is the deal? She told me if I purchased six I could get them for $3.00 each. I had three that were on sale 3 for $12.00 in my basket. Well If I could get 6 for $18.00 that was a really good deal. Then she said if you buy 4 pallets of 6 lilies each then I could sell three pallets for $1.00 each. The math works out to be about $2.50 each vs the regular price of $6.50 each. So I ended up with 24 new lilies to add to the yard!

Garden Tour June 2018

My mom would be in love with how the yard is looking, as she loved flowers and especially lilies. I’m so thankful that she lived with me for those couple of years and showed me a few things in the garden. I still have lots to learn but it is so much fun.

Other plans for our yard, which will case another Garden Tour June 2018.

  • Electricity for Hot Tub and outdoor lights
  • Install new LED outdoor lights
  • Hot Tub installed
  • Privacy wall for Hot Tub Built
  • Create and then plant new beds around the privacy wall and hot tub deck
  • Add about 200 or more pavers around the yard.
  • Trim rose bushes
  • Move garden bench and repair it
  • Build seating area near large rose bushes
  • Landscape the grass area near the patio (I’m trying to get the grass to grow now, but it isn’t looking so good.)
  • Other ideas as they come up! LOL

Being able to go outside and enjoy our new outdoor spaces brings joy to both Henry and I. The dogs like spending time outside with us too. Well, Hercules loves it, Oreo would rather be in the air conditioning. lol But when the weather is nice they will sit outside with us and we love doing so.

Glue Sponge Container Tutorial

Sharing a Glue Sponge Container Tutorial. This is a small vessel that holds a sponge and white glue to help with adhering papers together, especially when doing collage.

Glue Sponge Container Tutorial

Super quick Glue Sponge Container Tutorial Video.

Supplies used for the Glue Sponge Container Tutorial.

I used a container I had on hand for this project. The key is to make sure that it is airtight so the glue won’t dry out.

Cut the sponge if necessary to fit inside the container. Some containers may require three layers of sponges, some only one.

Glue Sponge Container Tutorial

Place the first sponge into the container and add just a little water, about a tablespoon amount. Then pour the Aleene’s Tacky glue over the sponge. Layer with additional sponges in the same manner.

Glue Sponge Container Tutorial

I used the water because Aleene’s Tacky glue is very thick and I wanted it to have a little help to soak into the sponge.

Glue Sponge Container Tutorial

After every use, I add a layer of glue on top before closing the container. This ensures that there is plenty of glue for the next project.

Hopefully, you found value in this Glue Sponge Container Tutorial and will make your own.

International Art Journal Pages Trade Crazy Pages

It is another round of the International Art Journal Pages Trade Crazy Pages. The first round I shared back in January. The swap is hosted by Ayala Art -ilove2paint, she created a Facebook group for those that were playing to communicate with each other. In this round, there are 10 people creating crazy art journal pages.

International Art Journal Pages Trade Crazy Pages

Here is a video showing how I created my International Art Journal Pages Trade Crazy Pages.

The supplies used for the International Art Journal Pages Trade Crazy Pages.

International Art Journal Pages Trade Crazy Pages

This time when I made my crazy pages I really stuck to the idea that these were to be backgrounds for other artists to use. By mixing paper, paint, stencils, rubber stamps and more I think I created a cool background that the others can use as a base for their artwork.

What I want everyone to know about this process is to have fun! Try not to overthink when putting down paper, stamps, and paint. Just have fun and play. When we become adults for some reason we stop playing. We forget how much fun it is just to goof off with art supplies not worrying about what we create.

International Art Journal Pages Trade Crazy Pages

I hope that you are inspired to sit and play for a little while today. Even if it is only for 5 or 10 minutes.  Grab some scrap paper, glue, scissors, and play, Grab some paper, paint and make finger paintings. Just enjoy the moment and don’t “THINK” about what will happen when you are done. Live in the moment.

Make sure that you visit all the other artists in this swap. There are some very creative people.

Lace Artist Trading Coin Tutorial

Hello friends, today I’m sharing a Lace Artist Trading Coin Tutorial. If you love Artist Trading Cards then you will also love artist trading coins. These coins measure 2.50 inch in size and are circles. These coins make great embellishments, trade items, and gifts. Could also make these into magnets. There really isn’t a limit.

Lace Artist Trading Coin Tutorial

Lace Artist Trading Coin Tutorial Video.

Supplies used for the Lace Artist Trading Coin Tutorial.

Process for the Lace Artist Trading Coin Tutorial. Begin by adding ink to the edges of the 2.5 inch round cardstock pieces. Then flip over one and apply a bead of the Best Glue Ever around the edge. Set aside to dry for about 15 to 20 minutes until the glue is clear.

Lace Artist Trading Coin Tutorial

Apply ink to the edges of the digital image that was cut at 2.25 inches. Then apply the Best Glue Ever to the back of the image and attach to the second of the two and a half inch circle. Tip: Apply a small drop of the Best Cleaner ever to the pin for the lid of the No Clog Writing Cap, this will give added protection against the tip clogging.

Put a few drops of glitter paint over the flower images and spread with a paint brush. This gives a pretty touch of glitter that isn’t overpowering. Clean the brush with the Best Cleaner Ever and rinse with water.

Lace Artist Trading Coin Tutorial

Once the Best Glue Ever has become clear on the 2.50 inch circle apply lace. Make sure to pleat the lace, even if it is gathered. This will help the lace curve around the circle and give it a full look.

Lace Artist Trading Coin Tutorial

Spray the lace disk with Glimmer Mist of choice and allow to dry. Can use a heat tool to dry, but make sure not to get the tool to close to the lace.

Apply the Best Glue ever to the back of the digital image disk and sandwich the lace between the two disks. Add zig-zag stitches to hold all the layers and to add more interest.

Use a paper punched bird as embellishment and attach with the Best Glue Ever.

Lace Artist Trading Coin Tutorial

Add a drop of the Best Glue Ever using the No Clog Writing Cap to the eye area of the punched shape.

Lace Artist Trading Coin Tutorial

With the help of Embellie Gellie placing a flat back rhinestone for the eye is an easy task.

Lace Artist Trading Coin TutorialThese are super easy and fun to make. I ended up making two sets of six Lace Artist Trading Coins.

Miniature Envelope Tutorial

Miniature items are so fun to see and to make. Today I’m sharing a Miniature Envelope Tutorial, using old book pages and scrapbook paper I show how to make miniature envelopes cut with a Cricut Explore Air.

Miniature Envelope Tutorial

Miniature Envelope Tutorial Video.

Supply list for the Miniature Envelope Tutorial.

Miniature Envelope Tutorial

This Miniature Envelope Tutorial is an easy one. Begin by selecting different pages out of old books. Look for a variety of text size, and age of papers.

Adhere the book pages to the back of a piece of scrapbook paper. The design on the other side will be the inside of the envelope or the liner. I have found that having a little glue pot helps with adhering the pages.

Once the papers have been adhered to the scrapbook page allow to dry completely. If the page is still wet when placed in the Cricut the paper will tear, I show that result on the video.

Cut the envelopes out of the new paper. In my case, I used a Cricut Explore Air. Don’t have an electronic paper cutter? Find an envelope and reduce on a copier or find a template online and print the size you want.

Fold the envelopes use a bone folder to get the flaps to lay flat. Apply distress inks around the edges on the inside and outside.

Punch a tiny heart out of a scrap of the main paper used to create the envelopes. Apply distress ink around the edges then adhere with the Best Glue Ever to the envelope front.

Stamp images for the inside, or cut scraps of paper to fit inside as tiny journal cards.

Miniature Envelope Tutorial

Use a very small piece of Embellie Gellie on the flap of the envelope to hold the envelope closed. Insert the tiny journal cards into the envelope.

Apply a tiny drop of the Best Glue Ever with the No Clog Writing Cap on the heart. Use Embellie Gellie to pick up a flat back rhinestone and place on the glue.

Miniature Envelope Tutorial

Aren’t these super cute? See, wasn’t that an easy Miniature Envelope Tutorial? These miniature envelopes measure 1.75 inches by 1.5 inches.

Want a few for yourself? I have sets of four in my shop.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial

For the past few months, I’ve been working on and off on my new studio space. Today I thought I would share a Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial. Yes, I painted the carpet. It cost a lot less than replacing the flooring. And I think it looks awesome.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1

Video Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial.

This space, many years ago was a home, then a bakery, then an Insurance Agency and Gun store. Now half of the building is my husband’s embroidery business. WeEmbroider was started back in 1999. Henry took a break from the embroidery business to focus on the insurance agency and a couple of years ago he decided to get it going again.

Since we own the building it was perfect for us to use for our business. And Henry said, I could have half of the building to create a workshop/studio where I can have workshops.

The carpet was a mess in there. With so many people coming through, foot traffic, spills and what not. But the cost of replacing the carpet was too high. So Henry and I brainstormed and came up with the idea to paint the floor.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1 Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1 Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1

I did all of the work myself. Henry helped me move furniture but I did all the painting. It took 4 coats and 10 gallons of paint to get the floor ready to decorate.

After the floor was painted white I painted flowers and dragonflies. Using craft paint, Acrylic paint and even some Glam from Tattered Angels.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1 Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1

Then I started moving items into this space. Jewelry making supplies have a corner, the Stamps have almost a whole wall. The hat making area is also in this space.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1Hercules has found a spot on the table to watch what I’m doing. Looking at the stamp shelves and the hat making supplies. I even made a curtain to the little closet that holds most of my fabric.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1Some of the greeting cards and the mask I made for a challenge with Canvas Corp Brands. Currently, those photo boxes are empty. waiting for me to decide what should be stored in them.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1Some of my wood mounted stamps. I still have a lot more to move and figure out how I want them stored and displayed.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1

This is my sewing space. I use this area when I’m working on alterations or creating items for customers. Making quilts has been something I’ve enjoyed for a few years now as well. Oreo is taking a snooze on my cutting desk. The chair is there so he can jump up there. Oreo loves to look out the window.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1Looking out from my sewing space I can see the front door and worktables. Before I filled the stamp shelves. See all those boxes on the shelves. Still more to move!

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1Decided to paint the carpet in this area to help tie things together. The carpet under the desk and cabinets was okay so I didn’t move everything out of this area to paint.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1Carpet is done and the Ironing station is back in place.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1The Pairs themed canvas started because I purchased a small portable ironing board. The fabric was so pretty I decided to cover the worktops and make covers for the chair and sewing machines.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1Most of the stamps moved into place. It is hard to see in this photo but I also have a camera mount so I can do videos in the workshop.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1A few of the hats I made.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1 Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1Tea cart belonged to my grandmother and I got it when my mother passed in Sept 2017. The sides fold out and it makes a really nice table. Some of my altered domino necklaces, bottle cap necklaces and more.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1 Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1See how cute the floor looks? Everyone comments on the floor when they visit the shop. I’m glad that I decided to document the process so I could share a Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1Out in the entryway is a long narrow room. Henry had his shop logo but said I could add my finished items for sale out there.

Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1 Studio Tour and Floor Painting Tutorial Image 1

I hope to have my first workshop in this space soon. Some of the workshop ideas will be some of the following.

  • Hat making
  • Jewelry making
  • Greeting Cards
  • Junk Journals
  • Sewing
  • Painting

I will also have private classes for those that want to have a couple of friends or one on one to get help with a project. Make sure to follow my Facebook Page to get updates on workshops. And feel free to contact me about doing a workshop.

Rose Stamp Tutorial

Today I’m sharing a Rose Stamp Tutorial. In this tutorial, I’ll show how I made my own stamp and then used it to decorate a junk journal page. Making a stamp like this is easier than you think. If you can find a silhouette image that is easy to cut out of craft foam then you too can make a custom stamp for your projects.

Rose Stamp TutorialRose Stamp Tutorial

Rose Stamp Tutorial Video

Supply List for the Rose Stamp Tutorial

Begin by selecting an image that is bold and easy to cut apart. Apply the Best Glue Ever to the back in a very thin coat. I used my finger. Lay this aside to air dry for a few minutes.

Rose Stamp Tutorial Rose Stamp Tutorial

Cut cardboard squares to be slightly larger than the image. In my case, these were 4 inch squares and I used four layers to make it sturdy.

Rose Stamp Tutorial

Adhere the image to the craft foam and cut apart the image. Having a second copy of the image will help you keep things in order. When a piece is cut out, lay on top of the copy.

Rose Stamp Tutorial

Glue the pieces to the cardboard block. Tip – Start in the middle and work your way to the outside. On mine, I started on one side and ended up having to change the image because I ran out of room for the pieces.

Rose Stamp TutorialRose Stamp Tutorial

Apply acrylic paint with a foam brush to the stamp in an even coat. Stamp on the desired surface.

The key is to have fun making your own stamp. This is a great way to do something custom that you won’t see in a store.

Pin Ups on Rt 66 Junk Journals

Making a junk journal that is more masculine than the others can be hard. What theme should be used? Would a man really like this type of journal? Pulling the Rt 66 Digital Journal Kit and some Pin Ups from Calico Collage got the idea for a Pin Ups on Rt 66 Junk Journals set. My thoughts were, some men and a few ladies would collect Pin Up girl trading cards or images and they could be traveling on Route 66 to collect these images. Hope you like my idea.

Supplies used for the Pin Ups on Rt 66 Junk Journals

When I first decided to make the Pin Ups on Rt 66 Junk Journals I thought I was only going to make one. But with all the beautiful Pin Up Girl images I just had to make four junk journals.

Pin Ups on Rt 66 Junk Journals

These journals measure 5.5 x 8.0 inches and have 10 sheets folded in half to make 40 pages. The cover is three layers of paper. A brown grocery sack was used along with cardstock and the digital image. There are two pockets on the cover.

Pin Ups on Rt 66 Junk Journals

Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists were applied to many of the pages. Some using the Lace Stencil I made and some just with the spray.

Pin Ups on Rt 66 Junk JournalsSave those old Atlus Maps. I was lucky that my brother found an old city street map book. These make great foundation pages in a junk journal. The corner pocket is from the 7gypsies Gypsy Mixed Media Pad – American Vintage.

Pin Ups on Rt 66 Junk Journals

Franken pages also appear in these Pin Ups on Rt 66 Junk Journals. Using the Tim Holtz pocket die, paper bag from Canvas Corp Brands, Pin Up girl ATC images, burlap, stamps and more to finish the page.

Pin Ups on Rt 66 Junk JournalsWhen possible I like to print lines on the back of the Calico Collage images. The page on the right is out of an old dictionary and the journal spot is from a pad of scrapbook paper.

Pin Ups on Rt 66 Junk JournalsFor the center of the Pin Ups on Rt 66 Junk Journals, canvas, denim, stamped images and the Calico Collage domino images were used.

Pin Ups on Rt 66 Junk JournalsPin Ups on Rt 66 Junk JournalsUsing ivory cardstock from Canvas Corp Brands and my Cricut I made a mini file folder that was stamped with Brutus Monroe Detail Ink – Raven and Terry’s Trains.
