Have you tried your hand at making Altered Paper Clips? These make a great gift to add to a greeting card. Could even be the focal point on a greeting card. When they get the card they can remove the clip and use where ever they like.

For now, I think I’ll keep one in my Happy Planner to help mark my place and I might be persuaded to give the others a new home. 😉

Happy Mail & Poodles of Fun Altered Paperclip

It’s Happy Mail & Poodles of Fun Altered Paperclip time. I’m a little behind on sharing my Happy Mail. But I got these awesome pens from Chameleon and I love them! I also got some stamps from Fleurette Bloom.

Happy Mail & Poodles of Fun Altered Paperclip

My husband surprised me for Valentines Day and ordered the Chameleon Pens. He got the 52 pen set. So far I’m loving these pens. I still have a lot to learn about them. Be on the look out for lots of projects where I use these Chameleon pens. Found the downloadable documents and these are so very handy. Check these out here.

The other things I got were Stamps and sequins from Fleurette Bloom. I won a drawing on their Facebook page! That was exciting! They gave me $10 to use in their store. It was hard to choose only a couple of things. But I did manage to find a few things I loved. Picked up the Poodles of Fun set and the Sugar Skulls set. Also got some pretty Rainbow Bliss Delight sequins.

Since I got all these fun goodies I decided I should make something! An altered paperclip for my Happy Planner.

Valentine Junk Journal Using Calico Collage Journal Kit

I made a Valentine Junk Journal Using Calico Collage Journal Kit. This kit is so beautiful I just had to make another journal using these papers. Many of the pages can be used outside of Valentines and I know I’ll be printing more of these for other projects.

Valentine Junk Journal Using Calico Collage Journal Kit

For this journal I decided to make the journal out of 11 in. x 17 in. card stock folded into thirds with pockets. There are lots of tutorials out there on how to make a journal like this so I won’t take the time to explain. But if you are interested I’ll make a follow up post.

Valentine Junk Journal Using Calico Collage Journal Kit

Once I had the pages defined I started distressing the papers and adding each of the printed images or scrap papers to the pages.

Valentine Junk Journal Using Calico Collage Journal Kit

Every page has something added. Either it has a pocket or a tuck spot. All kinds of places to add notes or photos. Lots of little bits to write love notes or memories.

Valentine Junk Journal Using Calico Collage Journal Kit

My thought was this would be a great journal to write love notes to that one that you love and give it to them. What fun would they have going through each page looking at each item. They could enjoy seeing the beautiful papers and seeing what you add to the book.

Here is a list of some of the items used:

A flip through video shows all of the pages and the items added.

This video is a process video that shows how the book was made. It took over 3 hours to make this journal. Actually more as some of the time was planning on how to create the journal.

I really enjoyed making this Valentine Junk Journal Using Calico Collage Journal Kit. There will be more journals offered in my shop so keep coming back to see what I have created.

How to make an Old Fashion Christmas Card 52CCT

Today its about How to make an Old Fashion Christmas Card 52CCT.

I’ve been following the 52 Christmas Card Thowdown blog for almost two months. I love the prompts and it gives me cards to create. If you haven’t check them out be sure to do so today.

How to make an Old Fashion Christmas Card 52CCT

For this challenge the idea was to make an Old Fashion Christmas Card. Looking through my ephemera I remembered I had several old Christmas cards. I knew one would be perfect for this post on How to make an Old Fashion Christmas Card 52CCT. Finding the perfect one I printed it with my inkjet printer. Feel free to use this image for your own card.

Next using my Cricut I cut out the snow globe image. The image was cut as three layers. Top layer was the white area where Santa would reside, second layer is brown and then the bottom layer was black.

Pulling a piece of textured green cardstock from my stash that I knew would be a perfect card topper. One of my background stamps would be perfect for this project, the Stampin Up Filigree stamp with some gold embossing powder.

Used a crop a dial corner rounder to round the corners of the green textured cardstock and the white card base.

Tim Holtz distressed ink – broken glass was used around the globe to give that “glass” look and feel.

A Stampendous Sentiment – Have a Merry Christmas was used on the base of the snow globe. Don’t forget that you can mix and match your stamps. Find the one that works for your project.

Gold Ribbon from my stash was used on the base of the snow globe. I thought it gave it a nice gilded gold look.

Many years ago I went on an eBay shopping spree and picked up over 300 little puffy iridescent snowflakes. It seems that even though I feel like I’ve used a lot of these little guys there isn’t an end to the supply.

Of course I have to add sparkle to projects some how.. On this project I used Tulip fabric paint. I found this trick several years ago when buying the glitter paint for a much lower price and it seems to work great on paper projects.

A few self adhesive rhinestones were used in the centers of the snowflakes.

Here is a video of the whole process as sometimes I forget some of the steps when I write it all out. lol

 

This card turned out wonderful, if you don’t mind me boasting. I love the texture and feel of the card. It makes me think of old days gone by when things were a much slower pace.
