Mini Natures Glory Junk Journal

So I’m in love with this Natures Glory journal Kit by Calico College. So today, I’m sharing a Mini Natures Glory Junk Journal that I made. It’s a great little journal that will fit in a bag easily.

Colorful images, journal spots, and pockets, plenty of room to journal, add photos or other small mementos. When I pick up this journal and hold it in my hand, it makes me smile.

Video flip through for Mini Natures Glory Junk Journal.

For this journal, I asked my very sweet husband if he could print the pages at 5 x 7 in. He brought home a set of papers that were printed at 5 x 7 in. but I was hoping that he could get two images per a sheet of paper and explained better what I really wanted.

The next set of papers were just what I wanted. With these papers, I then proceeded to print journal lines on the back sides so there would be lots of room to journal.

I also printed journal lines on some linen text weight paper that I have in my stash. This paper is a pale green. But once I sprayed it with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists the green faded into pretty pinks, teals and purples.

This journal measures 3.75 inches by 5 inches tall and 1 inch thick. It has three signatures of 7 pages each, providing 84 pages in this tiny journal.

Since I had two sets of papers and one was actually smaller than the other I used one for the pages in the journal. The other set became journal spots or papers that could be taken out of the journal.

Washi tape and stamping was also used on many of the pages. I think I just love the idea that when you pick up this journal there really aren’t any blank white pages for you to be intimidated by instead, you will be inspired to write or doodle on the colorful pages.

A length of purple lace seam binding ties the journal close.

Journal making is a lot of fun. I’m really enjoying these digital kits from Calico Collage. The images that she uses in the kits are beautiful. Make sure to check out her shop to see all of the beautiful kits she offers.

Life is Art Card, in under ten minutes

Another ten minute card: Life is Art Card, in under ten minutes. For those days when you need a card fast here is another quick one to make. The Brutus Monroe Be Brave and Botanical Banners are a perfect pairing.

Life is Art Card, in under ten minutes

Supplies used for Life is Art Card, in under ten minutes:
Be Brave
Botanical Banners
Gilded Embossing Powder
Embossing Ink
Heat tool
Surface Inks: Rouge and Cabbage
Tsukineko 6-Pack Fantastix, Brush/Bullet Tip Combo for All Purpose Ink – on Amazon
Ranger Blending Tool
Rose flecked cardstock
A2 Greeting Card
MISTI
3  x 4 Acrylic Block
Aleene’s Tacky Glue

Video of how to create Life is Art Card, in under ten minutes:

Having a package of Rose flecked cardstock on hand helped in the decision on what color to use for this card. My goal this year is to keep using the stash I have. I feel like I have enough paper that I could use a page every day and still not have it all used in 100 years. Of course, I’m probably exaggerating a little. lol.

One of my online friends said she has a hard time cutting paper to the sizes she needs for her cards because of a stroke. So she takes the paper to a print shop with a list of paper sizes she uses. For a small fee they will cut the paper to her needs and then she doesn’t have to think about the measurements, she can just grab paper and go. This is a good idea if you are a card maker and want to have things precut.

Personally, I keep my paper in full sheets unless it has been cut for a project. Then when I need paper I know to look in one of two places. The full sheet bin or the scrap bins. Slowly I’m making a dent in this paper stash, one day I’ll have it down to a more manageable amount, right? lol

Making this card is very simple. Select a card topper to stamp the Roses from the Botanical Banners. Using the MISTI stamp the roses with Embossing Ink in the lower left corner. Emboss with Gilded Embossing Powder.

Next stamp life is art from the Be Brave stamp set with Embossing Ink and emboss with Gilded.

Use the Fantastix tool to color the leaves with Cabbage.

Color the roses using the Ranger Blending tool and Rouge.

Adhere the card topper with Aleene’s Tacky glue. Boom you are done.

What I like about this card is that you can change the colors and it will have a different look. Have more time? Then you can add some bling; rhinestones, pearls or sequins to the card. Tie a ribbon around the top before you glue the topper down and you have a whole new look. It’s a starting point or it’s a finished card. So many options, because you are the creator.

My hope is that you are inspired by this project today. That when you need a card fast you are able to put it together with little effort, but it looks like you worked so very hard on it, and your friends will be impressed.

How to make a Ten Minute Pairs Card

Today I’m sharing How to make a Ten Minute Pairs Card. Do you find that you need to have a quick card that you can make? A beautiful card can be made in ten minutes or less.

How to make a Ten Minute Pairs Card

Using the From Pairs with Love and Terry’s Trains, Detail ink – Raven, some distress inks, and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, I’ll show you How to make a Ten Minute Pairs Card.

It can be a challenge to create beautiful cards in a pinch. What I have found to help is having a few supplies on hand. Some people like to pre-cut papers and have these stored in special containers. I found that I have a large enough stash of paper to choose from that it is just as easy to cut as I need. In the case of this card, I was lucky that the paper was already cut to fit a standard A2 card.

There is no need to stress over making a card for someone. Sure you can hurry and take only ten minutes or you can take days. The process is all about enjoying what you are doing. The person getting the card may never know how long it took to create the card unless you tell them.

My hope is that you were inspired by the project today to play. Maybe even challenge yourself to create a card in ten minutes.  Especially a ten minute Paris card.

How to make a Simple Pretty Mother’s Day Card

Today I’m sharing How to make a Simple Pretty Mother’s Day Card using the scraps left over from the How to Make a Shabby Chic Mother’s Day Greeting Card. Don’t you like to have all of the scraps used up when you are done with projects? I sure do! Hopefully, this will give you an idea of what to do with the scraps you might have left over when using the Calico Collage Mother’s Day Images.

Simple Pretty Mother's Day Card

When I finished the Shabby Chic Mother’s Day card I had pieces on my work table and I thought  I should be able to make another card quickly with those pieces. It took about ten minutes to make this card

Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – Vintage Pink

Stick On Pearls
Pink Organza Ribbon
Floral Scrapbook paper

Digging around in my paper stash. It is a very large paper stash to choose from. I found a 12 in. x 12 in. floral scrapbook sheet that matched the flowers in the sentiment strip from the Calico Collage Mother’s Day Images. This was cut down to fit the front of a 5 in. x 7 in. greeting card. One of the pieces that were left over was used on the inside.

Tim Holtz Distress ink: Picked Raspberry was used to add a bit of color around the sentiment that will be used on the front of the card and the inside of the card.

There was a bit of a doily on my desk from another project that I had cut part of it up that was perfect to add just a bit of lace to the card. This was added to the back of the strip.

The sentiment on the inside was layered with a full round lace doily over the scrap of floral scrapbook paper on the top portion of the card.

Simple Pretty Mother's Day Card

On the front, the scrapbook paper was adhered using the Brutus Monroe Craft Glue. Then adhere the sentiment and place Stick On Pearls on the doily. Adding a soft Pink Organza Ribbon bow just adds to the simplicity and elegance of this card.

Last spray a little Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – Vintage Pink on the front of the card.

This is a very simple card, but it is so pretty that any mother would love getting it this Simple Pretty Mother’s Day Card.

How to make a Shabby Chic Mother’s Day Greeting Card

Mother’s day is almost here, Sunday, May 14, 2017. On today’s blog, I’m sharing How to make a Shabby Chic Mother’s Day Greeting Card. Using the Mother’s Day images from Calico Collage, Brutus Monroe Stamps, ink and more.

Shabby Chic Mother's Day Greeting Card

The Calico Collage Mother’s Day Images are super sweet. I chose one of the images to be the focal point of a 5 in. x 7 in. greeting card. Pairing this with new stamps from Brutus Monroe just seemed to be the perfect fit.

Here is a video for How to make a Shabby Chic Mother’s Day Greeting Card

Digging around in my paper stash I found a couple pieces of pink paper that I thought went well with the image.

Shabby Chic Mother's Day Greeting Card

Recently I purchased the Anna Griffin Flower Bramble Die and I just love how beautiful it looks. Die cutting it out of plain white paper makes a beautiful touch to this card.

Adding Distress Inks to the edges of papers just helps to finish the look. It may not be necessary on every project but for this project, I think it helps to bring each layer together.

If you like that vintage feel on photos try adding a touch of gold embossing around the edges. Think messy, not uniform when you apply the embossing powder. This look reminds me of an old mirror that has aged and part of the silver is faded.

Although the stamped roses are hard to see in the photo it does make a nice gold touch to the image. If I had left off the embellishments the card could have been finished with just the gold embossed roses.

Those paper doilies that you find in the cake decorating isle are perfect for card making. These don’t cost a whole lot of money but sure look elegant.

Using the Gold Glossy Rinea paper foil with the leaves die adds a touch of softness and elegance to this Shabby Chic Mother’s Day Greeting card. I love seeing the shimmer on the card.

On top of the paper lace doily, is a few loops of pearls to help with that shabby chic look and add a little bit of romance.

To top off the embellishments is a beautiful Prima French Riviera Flower.

Once all of the items were added to the card I then used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – Vintage Pink to spray and add droplets to the card.

My hope is that you were inspired by today’s post, How to make a Shabby Chic Mother’s Day Greeting Card. Do you enjoy the Shabby Chic look? What is your favorite look for a greeting card? Share your thoughts with me in the comments, or on my Facebook page.

7gypsies & Calico Collage Spring Peacock Junk Journal

Recently while at CCB I picked up a 7gypsies Starter Journal. So today I’m sharing how to use the 7gypsies & Calico Collage Spring Peacock Junk Journal that I made.

Recently while at CCB I picked up a 7gypsies Starter Journal. So today I'm sharing how to use the 7gypsies & Calico Collage Spring Peacock Junk Journal that

To begin with, the 7gypsies Starter Journal is perfect for those that don’t want to make a journal from the ground up. If you are looking for a foundation to start from, a jumping point to begin then this is the perfect journal for you.

The 7gypsies Starter Journal is 5 in. x 7 in. when folded or 7 in. tall x 10 in. wide when laying flat and sewed in the middle. It has eight pieces of 80 pound recycled cardstock, when this is folded in half you then have 16 pages to decorate. The price is really fair for this journal at only $2.99 US on the canvascorpbrands.com website.

For my journal today I had some pages left over from my last Calico Collage Spring Peacock Junk Journal, check out my other journal I made here. Since I had pages left over and I had the 7gypsies Starter Journal I thought why not combine the two and make it a 7gypsies & Calico Collage Spring Peacock Junk Journal.

 

Here is a video of me making the 7gypsies & Calico Collage Spring Peacock Junk Journal.

I added a bit of Glitter Washi Tape and a few journal cards from my stash. Of course, Lace Seam Binding is always a really nice touch for a closure and I seem to have a nice stash of it to use.

A mix of adhesives was used: ATG Gun and Aleene’s Tacky Glue. It all depends on when I needed an adhesive. If’ I’m making a pocket I use the Aleene’s as that will ensure that any paper I stick into the pocket won’t get stuck on the adhesive.

One of my favorite inks to use is the Black Detail Ink – Raven, it is a true black and it is permanent when dry.

I had a great time making this journal and was glad to be able to use all the leftover bits from the other journal. If you are like me, you don’t need to add more items to your stash, you want to use as much as you can.

By using the 7gypsies Starter Journal I was able to fill it with the bits and have a really nice journal that I can keep, sell or give away.

Interested in purchasing this 7gypsies & Calico Collage Spring Peacock Junk Journal? The completed journal is available for sale in my shop.

How to make a Layered Easter Card

Easter is just around the corner, so I thought I would share, How to make a Layered Easter Card. Since I’m on the Fantabulous Circut Challenge Blog I’ve even thrown in a Cricut Cut too.

How to make a Layered Easter Card

Challenge #298-Easter

Make a project about Easter.

This Weeks Sponsor

And the prize is-

When I first got my Cricut I wasn’t sure how to use the device. I would have lots of trial and error trying to figure out how to cut using those dials and the keypad on the machine. Now that I have a newer machine the Cricut Explore Air I love using it almost daily.

Items used in How to make a Layered Easter Card
Calico Collage Victorian Easter Digital Download – FREE

Now that I have Cricut Design Space it allows me the ability to customize images to my needs. For today’s project, I pulled the Egg Flourish from the Gypsy Font cartridge into Design Space.

Once I had the image in Design space I then spent a few minutes removing the Egg as I didn’t want that part of the cut I wanted the mat. I then sized the cut to fit on a A2 greeting card and cut on two different shades of purple cardstock.

Using my  Vagabond I made a sandwich with the Darice Embossing Folder, 4.25 by 5.75-Inch, Brick Wall and the light purple cardstock. I also made a sandwich with the CUTTLEBUG 5X7 EMBOSS-OXFORD Embossing Folder and white cardstock.

On both of the newly textured papers I used the Ranger blending tool and Brutus Monroe Aubergine ink to bring out the texture.

Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – Pearl was sprayed over both of the textured pieces. Set aside to dry. (Tip store your Glimmer Mist on it’s side and then it is easier to shake the glimmer into the liquid)

Print the Calico Collage Victorian Easter Digital Download – FREE and cut out the large rabbit image, mat with white cardstock. Next layer on the purple mat.

Stamp the Brutus Monroe Easter Blessings on a scrap of white cardstock and punch with one inch punch. Punch a 1.25 of purple to mat.

Select the round bunny image from the Calico Collage Victorian Easter Digital Download – FREE, punch a purple mat using the 1.5 punch.

Use Aleene’s Tacky Glue to adhere the purple mat with the large bunny image to the White basket weave card topper.

Wrap PURPLE 1mm Bugtail Satin Cord Shamballa Macrame Beading Nylon Kumihimo String (210ft Spool) around the lower portion of the card. Adhere to A2 card.

Adhere Circle Bunny and Easter Blessings using Pop Dots. Add a bow and place the Stick On Pearls around the edge of the purple mat.

Video on How to use Birthday Bears on a Greeting Card

The way this card was made is super easy, as it involves stamping and coloring the images. There is no wrong way to color these images. What every looks good to you is perfect.

Since I used the Chameleon Pens I was able to get a pretty blended effect. Watercolor pencils could also be used just add a small amount and move with water to get the blended effect.

A great stamping tool is the MISTI as it can have several stamps loaded and then inked at one time. This is perfect if you want to create several of the same cards as you load the stamps once. Ink and then stamp for each card until you are done.

Today I used a die that I picked up from eBay. I love the design and I think it adds a bit of elegance to this whimsical birthday card.

Flat back pearls are perfect to add a nice touch of bling to the card. Then a small bow made from purple hemp finishes this card.

Head over to the Brutus Monroe Shop and pick up the Birthday Bears stamp set soon. You will love having this set to make art. You too can use the Birthday Bears on a Greeting Card.

I have these cards for sale in my shop, feel free to take a look. If you are looking for custom cards, hit me up.

How to make a Spring Peacock Junk Journal

Loving the Spring Peacock Kit from Calico Collage. I have to show you How to make a Spring Peacock Junk Journal. Once you see the images in this kit you will want to download it today.

How to make a Spring Peacock Junk Journal

For this journal, I decided that my foundation papers would be made from some paper I had in my stash. Years ago when Xpedex paper had a retail store in Oklahoma City I would shop there on a regular basis.

While shopping at Xpedex I would look at their clearance section. One of these visits I found 6 reams of letter size (8.5 in. x 11 in.) paper for four dollars a ream. What was wrong with the paper? It was a flecked sage green. While I love green, it wasn’t a favorite color of mine.

The manager noticed that I was looking at the paper and came over. He said hey I’ve had this paper on the shelf way too long. I’ll make a deal you can’t pass by today. How about I sell these to you for two dollars a ream. I said sold. Not knowing what I was going to do with that paper, but heck at that price I could use it for something some day.

Well, today is that “some day”. Pulling out my Tattered Angel glimmer mists I got an idea. I would mist the papers and change the color. Since the sage was such a light color the glimmer mists would easily change the color.

Wow, what a change the glimmer mists made to the paper. It was so much fun to see the transformation right before my eyes.

Now down to How to make a Spring Peacock Junk Journal.

The best thing to do is decide on the final size you want your pages. The kit is designed for 5 in. x 7 in. I chose to cut my pages down to 7.5 in. x 11 in. That way there would be a small border around each of the Calico Collage image.

Sort through the images and choose which ones you want to use. In my case, I was able to decide that I wanted three signatures of four sheets of paper each.

Next start selecting Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and spray each piece of copy paper, or text weight paper on both sides. Dry with a heat tool, or set aside to air dry.

Select images from the kit. Use coordinating Brutus Monroe ink or Tim Holtz Distress Ink around the images to finish the edges. Adhere the images with Aleene’s Tacky Glue. When I adhere a full page I left the top open so that it created a natural pocket. Think of gluing in a U shape. Also don’t use tape if you are planning on making a pocket, as items put into the pocket will stick to the tape.

On some of the pages, I wanted to have lined journaling spots. This is where a Jr Legal paper pad is handy. They are light weight and add a perfect touch to the journal. These look wonderful with a little glimmer mist sprayed on these as well.

Here is a fast process video on How to make a Spring Peacock Junk Journal

It took me about four hours of playing with this journal to get it finished. I really enjoyed making this journal and plan to make more similar to this one.

The completed journal is available for sale in my shop.

How to make a quick Keychain

Need a quick gift? Today I’ll show you How to make a quick Keychain Using Calico Collage Spring Peacock digital images, Tim Holtz distressed inks, Brutus Monroe detail in and Rinea Foil in Sapphire.

How to make a quick Keychain

When out shopping I saw a package of plastic Button Keychains by Playside Creations. These are 2.75 in. in diameter and I knew these would be beautiful keychains to add images inside.

Using my Silhouette Cameo 3, I pulled the 1 in. Digital images from the Spring Peacock set into the software and adjusted the size until it was the correct size for the keychains. I set the images to cut and saved the file.

Sent the images to my printer with the registration marks so that my Silhouette would recognize the sheet for cutting. Then placed the sheet on the Silhouette mat. Loaded the mat into the Silhouette Cameo 3 and told the software to send to Silhouette.

I just love watching my Silhouette in action! It cut the circles the perfect size for my project.

Once the images were cut I then took apart the plastic keychain case. Using Zig Two-Way Glue I glued two circles back to back.

Since the edges don’t always line up perfectly I then used Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Tumbled Glass to go around the edges. This will cover up the white areas.

As another measure to make the images look finished I then went around the outside with Brutus Monroe Detail Ink – Raven.

Selecting a sheet of Rinea Foil in Sapphire I then used the Tim Holtz Bow Paper Punch to punch a bow.

Time to put the keychain together. Make sure that the images are right side up and place inside the well of the keychain. Add the bow or other die cut shape then snap the cover back in place. Bam you are done. It took less than 5 minutes to make one of these keychains.
