How to make a Spring Paper Bag Junk Journal

Sharing How to make a Spring Paper Bag Junk Journal using the Calico Collage Simply Spring digital papers and of course some paper bags. When I got this digital sheet set it made me long for spring. So I thought it only fitting to make a journal with the set.

Here is a list of some of the supplies used in the Spring Paper Bag Junk Journal:
Calico Collage Simply Spring Digital Papers and Fairy Forest Digital Images
Three Paper Bags
Hole Punch
Ribbon and Canvas Corp Brands Waxed Cotton Cord to tie pages together
My Minds Eye Wild Asparagus papers, use all of the scraps.
Four sheets of 12 in. x 12 in. Card stock for mini journal books
Scraps of coordinating cardstock
Stapler
Brutus Monroe: Detail ink – Raven and Sea
Tim Holtz Distressed Ink – Tumbled Glass
Silhouette cuts: Words welded using the Samantha Font.

Once the paper bags were selected and folded these were bound with ribbon and CCB cord. Measured to make sure of cuts of scrapbook papers.

Cut up the Calico Collage Simply Spring digital papers then select images to use in journal.

Lay out all of the papers in the order you want them to appear in the book. It is much easier to do this up front so that you get the look you want.

Die cut the Stampin Up Top Note Die and paint with Teal and White Acrylic paint. Set aside to dry. Once dry Stamp with Notebook lines stamp.

Words were cut with Silhouette using the Samantha font. Make sure to weld the letters together so that you will have a whole word not individual letters. Welding the letters makes it so much easier to place, trust me I know from experience.

Use Brutus Monroe: Detail ink – Raven and Sea and Tim Holtz Distressed Ink – Tumbled Glass to finish the edges of papers and to stamp when needed.

Assemble book.

How to Decorate a Box

Today I want to share How to Decorate a Box using a few products from Brutus Monroe and Canvas Corp. Recently I became a member of the Inspiration Team with Brutus Monroe and I have acquired a few new products. Storage of these new products is important to me. I want to be able to find them and to keep the items neat. I had a nice sturdy box that I would use when I had a small project I was working on and wanted to keep everything together. This was the perfect opportunity for me to alter this box and transform it into something beautiful and functional.

The process was pretty easy if a little messy. It took a little over an hour to complete, and I think it could have taken less time, but I wasn’t sure what direction I was going. This was more of a play session, an opportunity to play with the products and get something pretty and useful at the same time.

I loved how the Canvas Corp paper took the sprays and transformed into a whole new paper. It may be time to order more of that paper! My local JoAnn’s had a paper pack, and I’m thankful that I found it there so I could play with all these yummy textures and prints.  Time to save some money so I can order a package or two.

How to Decorate a Box

Here is a list of some of the items I used:

Raven Detail Ink
Summer Chalk Shimmer Sprays
Liquid Element Bundle
Monroe Painted Feather
Angel Wings Stamp Set
Canvas Corp Brands Mixed Media Pack

The key to a project like this, is to use what you have and you like. The box turned out pretty and I know that I will enjoy using the box as well as looking at it on a regular bases.

Here is a video of the whole process.


Do you have a box you want to alter? This would be a perfect opportunity to pull out those supplies and make it look the way you want it to look. Create your own ending!

Take Ten A Different POV Butterfly #5

Finished the fifth installment of the Take Ten A Different POV Butterfly. This one was fast, because I already had most of the pieces from my stash.

I want to share a little more about the paper towel layer I used. It was a mop up that was placed under the flowers, from the bouquet of flowers video I made a few years ago. Check out the video below.

When I made the flowers I put a paper towel under them as I thought it would be cool to see how it would turn out. I saved  the paper towel and put it in my paper stash. I  sort my paper bits and scraps by color into scrapbook envelopes. That way when I want to do a project that I want a certain color I just pull the envelope. This really comes in handy. There are lots of times when I want to make a project with a few colors. Pull a few envelopes and start creating. I know I keep a lot of stuff, but it paid off this time for this Take Ten A Different POV Butterfly project as it went together quickly.

Again used the butterfly stamp from the Tim Holtz Collection from Stampers Anonymous. Also used the Raven Detailed ink from Brutus Monroe. Making this series of cards is really a lot of fun as it is showing all the different ways that one stamp can be used. This process also works if you need to make a lot of cards for an event. Select one of the layouts and do an assembly line.

Here is the video showing the whole process.


What are your thoughts on this project? Are you learning new ways to use a stamp you have to make multiple different cards? Please share what you have learned by tagging me in your art. I love seeing what others create. Now go forth and create something beautiful.

Take Ten A Different POV Butterfly #4

Here it is the fourth installment of the Take Ten A Different POV Butterfly #4. I’m getting pretty good at these cards, don’t you think? LOL

For this card I gathered a couple different shades of purple cardstock from the scrap pile that I inherited. I was lucky that most were already cut down to close to the size I needed. I pulled out some Tim Holtz Distressing Ink and got the area ready to create.

Take Ten A Different POV Butterfly

While the card may take ten minutes or less to create I usually spend time before hand getting things all lined up. Do I have the stamps I need, the paper and ink? Sometimes I forget to clean my work area and that isn’t a good thing. It can lead to a messy card and after all the hard work you don’t want a messy or ruined card! lol

I have a pretty good size room, but it is full of supplies. I’ve been slowly moving things around so that what I use on a regular bases is close to me and things that I don’t use get put away. This makes me feel better about the work area. But this also makes me sad about the items that get put away. I worry that I will forget about those items and will never use them again. Then someone will come into my space and suggest that I get rid of stuff! HOW DARE THEY suggest such a thing! LOL Because as soon as I get rid of something I’ll need it, you know it is true! Well one day I’ll have a room that is the perfect size to hold everything I have in such a way that every where I look it makes me happy. Until then I will deal with the space I have. 😉

It is time to make the card. It is really such a pretty card and so simple. Check out the video below and let me know what your thoughts are on this one.


Does it give you ideas on ways to use that stamp that you really love, but thought you only had one way to use it in your art? I hope that the posts for Take Ten A Different POV Butterfly have inspired you to use those stamps in different ways. Get to creating, you know you want to make something.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today for this post on Take Ten A Different POV Butterfly #4.

Aspire to be Amazing!

Take Ten A Different POV Butterfly #3

Continuing on with the Take Ten A Different POV Butterfly #3 project. The supplies were already on the work table and again the Butterfly stamp from the Tim Hotlz Collection from Stampers Anonymous is the focal stamp.

Take Ten A Different POV Butterfly

For this project I decided that it was time to have some texture. The old Sizzix Big Kick is a great tool, I’m glad I purchased this a few years back. There are so many texture folder now it is fun to go shopping to see what is new. The one I used for this project is Cuttlebug A2 Embossing Folder, Textile Texture this is one of my favorite folders. It gets used a lot and I’ll be sad if I ever loose it or if it breaks. Maybe I should buy another one? If anyone is ever in a mood to go shopping feel free to check out my Amazon wish list. 😉

Pulling from the stash of scrap paper in my studio I got busy making a new card. I think this one went together rather easy, it did take almost the whole ten minutes, but I think I was taking my time on some of the parts. lol Sometimes I get lost in the card making and forget that I’m on a mission. Does that ever happen to you?

There was a video made so you can see all of the steps.

Take Ten A Different POV Butterfly #2

Continuing on with the Take Ten A Different POV Butterfly #2 project. The supplies were already on the work table and again the Butterfly stamp from the Tim Hotlz Collection from Stampers Anonymous is the focal stamp. Did I say how much I really love this butterfly stamp? I really do like it a lot and I thought it was important that I find multiple ways to use this stamp for the investment that I put into the purchase.

Take Ten A Different POV Butterfly

For this project I decided to use my art brush markers. Using the Marvey and Tombow markers in a variety of purples I proceeded to color the image on the stamp using the lightest color first, then moving to the darkest color until the whole stamp was covered. This technique is a really simple one that I like to use when I want the stamped image to match the paper. Sometimes I don’t have a stamp pad the same color as the paper or I want a blended look and using the makers is how I get the look I want.

The thinking of you stamp is from a set that was given to me many years ago. I’ve always loved the font of the phrase and have used it many times over the years. The ink for the saying is from Brutus Monroe the Detailed Ink Raven. This is an awesome ink and I’ve started using it anytime I need black detailed images.

Below is a video of how this card was created.

 

 

The following are the two cards that have been made so far with the same stamp.

Take Ten A Different POV Butterfly #1

I’ve decided to challenge myself. There for Take Ten A Different POV Butterfly #1 is the beginning of a series. The challenge came to me by reading the Take Ten magazine. This is my version of Take Ten A Different POV Butterfly. The concept is the following: Use the same focal stamp to make multiple different projects. This a different point of view. The other part of this challenge was to keep each project under ten minutes to make.. Thus Take Ten A Different POV Butterfly was born.

The stamp I chose is the Butterfly stamp from the Tim Hotlz Collection from Stampers Anonymous. I liked the size and look of this butterfly and knew that it would make great greeting cards.

Take Ten A Different POV Butterfly

But what was I going to do for my cards? How could I make multiple cards using the same image that have a different look and be under ten minutes? Well I flipped through old magazines and I used Pinterest to help me settle on a few ideas to get me started.

The next thing I did is I went through my paper stash. Recently I was given a rather large stash of paper. A lot of purple paper as it was left over from wedding invitations. The pieces are nice and many are very large, big enough to use for cards.  Making a pile of papers, ink and other supplies I proceeded to get things ready as I knew I wanted to create a video.

Check out what I did below
