Fussy Cut Bingo Swap Card Tutorial

Today I’m sharing a Fussy Cut Bingo Swap Card Tutorial. One of my Facebook group is having a swap and I decided to join in the fun. Using digital images from Calico Collage, some scissors, and a few other supplies I made bingo cards in under ten minutes. You can make these too.

Supplies used in the Fussy Cut Bingo Swap Card Tutorial.

Let’s get started on this Fussy Cut Bingo Swap Card Tutorial. Begin with selecting digital images. Next crop the fussy cut images you want to use and print at a size that will fit your bingo card. In my case, I made the smaller images about 2.5 x 3.5 inches.

The images were printed on standard copy paper using a laser printer. Use what you have, or you can even send the images to a print shop. Trim the images from the paper.

For the bingo cards, these were printed four to a page and these measured about 4.5 x 3.75 inches. Cut cardstock for the card base slightly larger than the images. Or you can print the images on cardstock and not have to mat the images.

Select an image for the focal point and fussy cut. If this were going to be a pocket in a journal I would either print on cardstock or glue another piece of paper on the back to make it stronger. Since this is a journal card and won’t get as much pulling items in and out I left it at the copy weight paper.

Add distress inks to the edges of all the papers. Adhere the bingo card to the base with the Best Glue Ever. Layer the fussy cut element in the corner and then sew around the outside of the bingo card, catching the fussy cut element on two sides.

Apply Tulip Dimensional glitter paint to the image to highlight areas that you want to sparkle.

Place the journal card in the tuck spot and you are done! It took me longer to write this blog post than it did for me to create one of these cards it goes that fast!

Violet Junk Journal Page Tutorial

Here it is the last color of the rainbow junk journal pages. Today I’m sharing the Violet Junk Journal Page Tutorial using digital images from Linda’s Wisdom digital journal kit that features art I created that Calico Collage turned into a digital kit.

Supplies used in the Violet Junk Journal Page Tutorial.

This Violet Junk Journal Page Tutorial completes the rainbow for the rainbow junk journal I’m creating. Making these pages stretched my creativity. Trying to find elements that fit each color was sometimes a challenge. Doing these pages helped me try new things.

Being able to use Linda’s Wisdom digital journal kit in this page made my soul soar! I would have never thought that I would have my art in a digital format that could be shared around the world.

Violet Junk Journal Page Tutorial

The next step for the rainbow junk journal will be to create the cover and add the pages. My idea is to make signatures for each color and add a few simple pages for more journal space.

Because of the Violet Junk Journal Page Tutorial and the other tutorials for the rainbow, I hope it inspires you to create. Try new things. Look for cool items to add to your journal. Who would have thought that paint chips would be a pretty element? Couldn’t you see making a journal page that was all about the new baby room and the color pallet was chosen? What about a wedding, showing the theme of colors?

Fall CCB Blog Hop Junk Journal Binding Tutorial

Come along and see the Fall CCB Blog Hop Junk Journal Binding Tutorial today. There are several crew members of the Canvas Corp Brands that are sharing lots of Fall inspired projects to get you in the mood for Fall. Make sure you visit my blog to visit the posts by the others.

Fall CCB Blog Hop Junk Journal Binding Tutorial Video.

Supplies used for the Fall CCB Blog Hop Junk Journal Binding Tutorial.

The journal measures 8.25 x 6 inch Junk Journal with a total of 36 pages. The pages are a mix of cardstock and copy paperweight. Each page has been sprayed with Tattered Angels Chalkboard Mist and also feature a stamped image.

Using a stencil with the Tattered Angels Mists adds a personal touch to each page. I love that it adds color to the page that can still be written upon.

Stamping in black ink on each page gives a little bit of decoration that is simple and pretty. The images could even be colored by the journal owner.

Pockets in a journal are a great way to keep mementos of an event or time in our lives. The pocket pictured above was made from a book page during the mixed media pages tutorial.

The thicker watercolor paper from Tattered Angels is beautiful. The texture and weight of the paper is perfect for using watercolor paints.

Sewing other papers on top of a dictionary page gives unique writing space and adds a little bit of decorative detail. The pocket is hand to keep journal cards or other notes.

The grungy pages with the sprays and stamping make me happy. This is one of those journals that you can sit and pet.

The mixture of cardstock with notebook paper gives a lot of character to this Fall Journal.

Fall Mixed Media Collaboration Postcard Tutorial

Fall is so beautiful, don’t you agree? Today I’m sharing a Fall Mixed Media Collaboration Postcard Tutorial. This project was hosted by Bea Grob and four artists in total participated as this is an international swap. Using Tattered Angels Products and more I show how I created my postcards and then show how I decorated all the postcards.

Supplies used in the Fall Mixed Media Collaboration Postcard Tutorial

Let’s get this Fall Mixed Media Collaboration Postcard Tutorial started. Begin by selecting a large piece of watercolor paper. This will be a master board style project. The idea is that you decorate a large sheet of paper, then cut it up for the project.

Fall Mixed Media Collaboration Postcard Tutorial

Next using stencils, Tattered Angels Mists and more start adding color to the watercolor master board. Dry with a heat tool or allow to dry naturally. It is a good idea to let each layer dry before applying more mediums.

Collage bits of mixed media papers on top of the misted paper. Adhere the bits randomly. Make sure to spread out the pieces on the whole master board so it will have bits when it is cut up.

Apply paint to blend the background to the pasted pieces. Add one color at a time and make sure to dry before applying another color so you don’t end up with mud.

Cut up the master board int 4 x 6 pieces to be made into postcards. Save the other bits for other projects, like small tags or journal cards.

Make sure you check out the other ladies videos for their Fall Mixed Media Collaboration Postcard Tutorials.

Loved making the backgrounds. Now let’s dive into decorating all the postcards for this Fall Mixed Media Collaboration Postcard Tutorial.

Fall Mixed Media Collaboration Postcard Tutorial

Since this is a Fall project I decided to take a walk around outside and pick up a few fallen leaves. After doing a google search on how to dry leaves I knew I could use these in this project today.

Fall Mixed Media Collaboration Postcard Tutorial

Select leaves that are not super dry and brittle. Follow instructions on how to dry leaves. Once the leaves are dry apply Glam to seal the leaves. I decided to use a glam that had lots of glitter in it so the leaves shimmer.

Base postcard by Bea

Adhere the leaves using the Best Glue Ever by ScraPerfect. Apply a small amount to the backside of the leave and let it air dry for a couple of minutes. Then place the leaf on the postcard. Add something heavy on top to push it into the postcard. Set aside to dry.

Create a sentiment using a rubber stamp on kraft cardstock. Apply distress inks to the edges of the sentiment. Use 3D foam squares on the back of the sentiment and then adhere to the postcard.

Select a few buttons and sequins and using the Best Glue Ever, adhere to the postcard. Tie a small bow using tiny jute or cord and adhere with the Best Glue Ever.

This is a super fun project. Let’s get started on the Mixed Media Halloween Paper Bag Junk Journal Tutorial. Begin by selecting paper bags, acrylic paint, stamps, and mixed media papers.

Mixed Media Halloween Paper Bag Junk Journal Tutorial Mixed Media Halloween Paper Bag Junk Journal Tutorial

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

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!

Large Halloween Journal Card Tutorial

Sometimes you just need more writing space. That is why I’m sharing this Large Halloween Journal Card Tutorial with you. The cards in this tutorial are going inside a paper bag journal. Lots of room to write when you make cards this large.

Large Halloween Journal Card Tutorial

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.

Large Halloween Journal Card Tutorial

Use a ruler and a black marker to give each piece of paper a border. Doing this will give the appearance that papers had a black mat behind each one.

Apply Distress ink to the edges of the papers using a blending tool. Add distress ink to the edges of the words. Add a little distressed Walnut Stain to the skull die cut image.

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.

Halloween Journal Card Tutorial

Continuing on with more Halloween Tutorials. Today I’m sharing a Halloween Journal Card Tutorial. Using Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, Calico Collage Digital images, Stamps and more I create two fun journal cards for a Halloween Junk Journal.

Halloween Journal Card Tutorial

Halloween Journal Card Tutorial Video.

Supplies Used for the Halloween Journal Card Tutorial.

Getting started on this Halloween Journal Card Tutorial is easy. First either purchase ATC sized cards or cut white cardstock 2.5 x 3.5 inches. Cut a piece of Ivory cardstock 3 x 3.5 inches.

Spray Tattered Angels Simply Sheer Safety Orange on both card bases. Splatter Tattered Angels Almost Black on both cards. Allow the cards to dry.

Apply Distress Ink, Walnut Stain to the edges of both card bases using a blending tool.

Using a ruler and a permanent black maker create black edges on all sides of the card bases. This will give the card a framed look with only one layer of paper.

On the 3 x 3.5 inch card base apply a thin line of Best Glue Ever using the No-Clog Writing cap around the outside edge. This will hold the spiderweb glitter tulle once the glue has turned clear. It will take a few minutes for the glue to turn clear and tacky. Once the glue is clear then apply the tulle on the card.

Stamp sentiment on a scrap of ivory cardstock. Spray with Tattered Angels Simply Sheer Safety Orange. Splatter Tattered Angels Almost Black. Apply distress ink and black marker to the edges. Adhere on the card using Best Glue Ever.

Apply spider using Best Glue Ever on top of the tulle and under the sentiment.

Halloween Journal Card Tutorial

On the 2.5 x 3.5 card base apply a small amount of glue in the lower center, place tulle on top. Apply glue to the back of the Calico Collage Image cluster and put on top of the tule.

See this was a very easy Halloween Journal Card Tutorial don’t you think? What will you put on your journal cards?
