Have fun applying the mixed media papers to the bags. Don’t think about where you are placing the bits of papers, just have fun adding color here and there. Flip each bag over and add papers to the other side too.

Once the papers have adhered to the bags start applying one color of paint here and there. Be random, don’t think about where you are adding color. Doing one layer at a time will give it time to dry and your colors won’t get muddy.

Add Tattered Angels Mists to the bags to add another layer of color.

Break out those stamps and add more interest to the bags. In this step, you will want to think about the direction of the bags and your stamps if they are directional images.

Vintage Bee Tag Tutorial

Welcome, everyone. Today I’m sharing a Vintage Bee Tag Tutorial using Calico Collage digital images, old book page, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists and items I cut using my Cricut. This Vintage Bee Tag Tutorial was made for a swap. Hope they like what I made.

Vintage Bee Tag Tutorial Video.

Supplies used for the Vintage Bee Tag Tutorial.

Let’s begin the Vintage Bee Tag Tutorial Video. Select a piece of 4 x 6 ivory cardstock and cut the corners off to give it a tag shape. Select a page out of a book I used a bible and cut it to 3.75 x 5.75 inches and trim the top two corners to create a tag shape.

Select an image from the Calico Collage Digital sheet and enlarge to 2.5 inches. Print on cardstock or print on copy weight paper and then back with cardstock. The Silhouette is a great tool to help with cutting images out, especially if cutting a lot of images. Using the Silhouette Software I duplicated the image and then flipped on so there were two views of the same image.

Apply Distress Ink to the edges of the tag and book page. Then apply distress ink to the edges of the round image and words.

Spray Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists through a stencil on the book page. Allow the page to dry. Adhere the book page to the tag base using ScraPerfect Best Glue Ever and the No-Clog Writing Cap.

Cut a honeycomb using Cricut at 4 x 6 inches. I created the honeycomb by using a hexagon, duplicating, then welding to create the honeycomb. Save your work when you create a new element in Cricut, saves a lot of time! Adhere the honeycomb to the tag base, cut the corners to match.

Apply a small amount of glue to the back of the 3.5 x 3.5 brown fabric and adhere in the center of the tag base. Adhere the lace on the left side of the square.

Vintage Bee Tag Tutorial

Sew zig-zag stitches around the tag base and the Calico Collage image in the center.

Apply words using the Best Glue Ever. Punch a hole at the top of the tag and pull a strip of fabric through and tie a knot.

Last, apply Tulip Dimensional Fabric Paint using the Medium No-Clog Writing cap to the Calico Collage image.

This was a fun Vintage Bee Tag Tutorial, I hope that you enjoyed it and are inspired to create!

Supplies used for the Boo to You Halloween Altered Envelope Tutorial.

This is a super easy Boo to You Halloween Altered Envelope Tutorial. Bonus journal card tutorial too. Spray a 2.5 x 3.5-inch ivory card with Safety Orange Tattered Angels. Splatter with Almost Black. Allow the spray to dry. Stamp houses along the bottom, don’t make them straight, have fun. Select a sentiment stamp, ink and stamp in the upper left corner of the card. On a gold sheet of cardstock, stamp a witch that looks like she is flying over the moon. Fussy cut and mat with a black circle.

Apply Distress ink around the edges of the journal card. Black Soot and Walnut Stain help make the card look grungy.

Boo to You Halloween Altered Envelope Tutorial

On the back side of the witch image, adhere a small tuft of tulle and then adhere this element on the right side of the journal card.

Grab an envelope, think a return envelope from your junk mail. That hasn’t been used, that still has the closure flap. Trim down the envelope by cutting off each end. I this case I cut off 2 inches from each side to mak5-inch wide envelope.

Select one of the end pieces and open up the envelope, next spray with Almost Black Tattered Angels. Flip the envelope over and spray the inside with Safety Orange Tattered Angels. Apply Distress ink, Black Soot on all the edges.

Boo to You Halloween Altered Envelope Tutorial

Adhere the cut piece of the envelope over the return address. With the open side up to create a pocket.

Create Domino Sized witch element by layering the witch image over purple and black cardstock, create two of these. Adhere green trim behind witch on the left side of the pocket. Save the other image.

Stamp Boo to You or another sentiment on Ivory cardstock, splatter with Safety Orange and Almost Black Tattered Angels. Use a ruler and a black marker to give a border to the sentiment.  Apply distress ink around the edges. Adhere the sentiment on the pocket.

Fold envelope shut. Use the remaining image to create a closure for the envelope. Apply glue on the bottom half and position the top half over the flap, making sure not to glue the envelope shut.

Supply List for the Large Halloween Journal Card Tutorial

This is a very easy Large Halloween Journal Card Tutorial. Begin by cutting the card base, 5.75 b 11.5 inches. This will fit inside a 6 x 12 paper sack opening. Next, select a book page that measures about 6 x 9 inches.

Use a Stencil and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists on the book page. Experiment with different colors and stencils to get the look you like the best. Dry with a heat tool or allow drying. Trim the book page to 5.5 inches square and save the extra bit and cut down to 5.75 – this will become a pocket later.

Halloween Skull Mini Junk Journal Tutorial

Making mini journals is quick easy and fun. Check out this Halloween Skull Mini Junk Journal Tutorial to make your own mini journal. Using an image from Calico Collage’s Hallowed Gothic digital journal kit, cardstock and mop up pages I share how to make a mini journal.

Halloween Skull Mini Junk Journal Tutorial

Halloween Skull Mini Junk Journal Tutorial Video

Supplies used for the Halloween Skull Mini Junk Journal Tutorial.

To begin this Halloween Skull Mini Junk Journal Tutorial Print the Skull image from the digital journal kit. In Windows 10 right click on the image inside File Explorer. Choose print. Inside the print window, choose 3.5 x 5 inch and uncheck Fit Picture to frame. Select the number of copies, one will print one image at 3.5 x 5.

Halloween Skull Mini Junk Journal Tutorial

Trim the image removing the white around the edges. Cut a piece of black cardstock about 1/4 of an inch larger than the image.

Adhere image to cardstock. Fold the cover in half.

Using the book cover as a guide cut mop up pages to be 1/4 of an inch smaller than the cover. The journal made in the tutorial has 4 sheets of paper folded in half. If there is a page long enough make a flip out.

Fold the pages in half. Stack to make a signature and place inside the cover. Hold in place with paper clips or binder clips. Using a ruler determine the center point and use the craft pick to punch three holes. One in the center and the other two about half an inch from the edges in the crease of the book spine through all the pages.

Halloween Skull Mini Junk Journal Tutorial

Thread the bookbinders needle with waxed linen thread that is three times the height of the journal cover. Start inside on the center hole and push the needle to the outside. Hold on to the tail of the thread. Push the needle through the top hole from the outside and go inside the journal. Holding the tail of the thread that is on the inside up toward the top of the journal. Doing this will help keep the thread out of the way.

Push the needle through the center hole again and go to the outside. From the outside center go to the bottom hole and push to the inside. Slip the needle under the top thread and pull down. Make sure that the threads on the outside and inside are tight and tie a square knot. Cut off excess threads. Optional, add punched paper shapes to the ends of the string or leave plain.

Supplies used for the Halloween Altered Paperclip Tutorial.

To begin this Halloween Altered Paperclip Tutorial select two book pages that measure 6 x 9 inches. Fold each book page in half and half again.

Spray each folded piece with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist through the Spider Web stencil. Mop up the excess spray with another book page. Could also spray one page and mop up with the other to get two different looks at one time. Add Maple Yellow after removing the stencil.

Unfold the book pages and adhere the first fold closed. Add a paperclip to the top edge and apply glue around the paperclip and the edges of the book page to close up the paperclip inside. Make sure to apply a lot of glue around the paperclip so it won’t come out.

Apply distress ink, black soot to the edges of the folded piece.

Select images from the Hallowed Gothic digital journal kit. Trim down and cut mats for each image using cardstock. Apply distress ink to all the edges of the images and mats. Adhere the images to the cardstock.

Using a ruler and a black marker apply black ink to the edges by running the marker down the edge of a ruler. This will frame each piece to look like there is a second piece of paper in the mat.

Apply the Best Glue ever on three sides of the bigger images to create a pocket. Place journal card inside pocket (make sure the glue is dry before you push all the way into the pocket).

Place glue on the back side of the spider and bat images and adhere to the altered paperclip.

Mounting Rubber Stamps Tutorial

Sharing a Mounting Rubber Stamps Tutorial for those who have asked. When you get a new sheet of red rubber it may not be easy to understand how to mount them. Today I’ll show you how to mount the stamps using EZMount Foam from Crafter’s Companion.

Mounting Rubber Stamps Tutorial

Supplies used for this Mounting Rubber Stamps Tutorial.

When cling stamps won’t stick, it makes these hard to use. Try washing the stamp with a mild soap and water. Hand soap usually will work and clean up any dirt that is preventing the stamp from sticking to a mount.

Mounting Rubber Stamps TutorialIf after washing the stamp it still won’t stick try using a small amount of the Best Glue Ever and a paintbrush on the cling side of the stamp.

Mounting Rubber Stamps TutorialUse a small amount and use a paintbrush to spread the glue in a thin layer. Lay the stamp aside to air dry.

Mounting Rubber Stamps TutorialThe stamp will have a clear shiny look to it when the glue is dry. Place on your mounting choice and stamp away.

Got a sheet of rubber stamps that you want to mount? Check out the video, Mounting Rubber Stamps Tutorial.

In the video, I show how to cut the stamps apart using Fiskars Scissors coated with the Best Cleaner Ever. When cutting yours stamps make sure that you cut straight up and down. If you angle the blade of your scissors you could undercut your stamp mount and you won’t have a good impression.

Keep trimming the excess away until the image is clear of extra rubber. Mounting stamps is easier than you think, especially if using a temporary mounting system.
