Thanks to the following vendors for sharing products with me for this giveaway. Crafters Companion for the Gemini Junior and dies. Surebonder for the glue gun and glue. And Holster Brands for one of their clever holsters. Thank you for helping to make this giveaway possible.

Here is the video of the Winner Announcement and Share of Old Journals.

I decided to share a few of my old journals and alter books because people keep asking when I first started making journals. Back in the 1990’s, I made a lot of different styles of journals. Most were altered books. There wasn’t an outlet in the area for sharing these altered books so I went back to making more greeting cards than journals. It was a little over a year ago that I picked journal making back up.

The winners of the giveaway:

  • Johanne Lancombe – Flowers made by me
  • Susan Tracy – Flowers Made by me
  • Linda Davis – Holster
  • Erica Nelson – Glue Gun and glue
  • Brandy Wollet – Gemini Junior and dies

Congratulations to each of the winners. Please contact me with your mailing address so I can send the prizes. 🙂 Thank you so very much for watching and entering the giveaway. My hope is you will enjoy the prizes shared in the Winner Announcement and Share of Old Journals.

How to Make a Spring Peacock Paper Doll with Rinea Foil

Did you play with paper dolls when you were a kid? Well here is your chance to do it again with How to Make a Spring Peacock Paper Doll with Rinea Foil. The Spring Peacock Paper Doll collection is from Calico Collage and I have paired it with Rinea paper foil.

The fun thing about these paper dolls is that you get to make them any way you want. With the items in the kit you can pick and choose which patterns you want to use. Or you can make up your own.

For my Spring Peacock Paper Doll Fairy I decided to add some of the Rinea paper foil. I love the shine and sparkle it adds.

The paper doll is super easy to make. Cut out the desired doll. Since mine were printed on copy paper I glued mine to cardstock.

Select the Rinea foils that match the Doll parts and die cut the butterfly and roses.

Paint the Bamboo Skewer black with acrylic paint.

Use the Cross Lock Tweezer or a quilling tool to make the roses. I use hot glue to finish the rose as it sets up quickly.

Using purple acrylic paint, cover the back of the dolls head to mimic her hair.

Adding a little extra to the outside edge, trace the dress on the Purple Rinea Paper Foil and cut out. Adhere to the back of the dress.

Hot glue bamboo skewer to the back of doll body. Attach arms and legs with Aleene’s Tacky Glue.

Make a lace petticoat and adhere to the back of the dress. Hot glue the dress to the body.  Tie lace around the body at the waist to represent a belt. Leave extra in the back to look like a big bow.

Adhere the Rinea Paper Foil wings to the Calico Collage Wings with Aleene’s Tacky Glue. Then adhere both to the back of the doll.

Place the large Rinea paper foil rose at the waist of the doll with hot glue. Add the smaller rose and a couple of silk flowers on her head.

Admire your super cute fairy you made.
