A Blast from the Past!

Alright Party People! 
 It’s the June challenge at Eclectic Ellapu.  This months’s theme: A touch of pink and or purple.   For this theme I decided to finally brake open my Graphic 45 8x8” desk calendar.  I am planning to do a page a month.  Since its May and my birth month, I am starting with this month and how fitting the primary colour is “purple”.  I am following the layouts done by AnnetteGreen from Eclectic Paperie.   Annette did the calendar in 2012.  I love how she brings the paper to life with her layouts.



Supplies: Graphic 45’s A Place in Time 12 x 12 July Foundation #4500603. I found a pack of the 12 x 12 July Foundation pages at Tuesday Morning some time ago.  I used the B side of the Foundation pages as my base pages.  I followed Annette’s cutting instructions for making a 7 ¾ x 7 ¾ base page.   I used the 12 x 12 May cut apart page and the 12 x 12 mini calendars page,  Martha Stewart corner punch and butter fly punch, some coloured twine, decorative edge scissors, and Tim Holtz Distress Ink-Vintage Photo.

Happy Mother's Day part II


Now, this little project I had to develop from scratch, only because what I saw wasn’t quite what I had in mind.  I wanted something that was specific to the gift to be given.  I didn’t have a whole lot of time so, I had to reel my mind in a little bit. I didn’t even have enough time to research YouTube!   This is where being familiar with the concept of making a box from scratch came in handy!!!  Once you get the basics of how to construct and decorate a box, you are good-to-go on most any box.  You can find all kinds of tutorials on YouTube, that’s where I got my PhD in Crafting; YouTube University…lol
Here are some pictures of what I came up with… A little box to hold a Blu-ray/DVD





Supplies for this project are:  My template, JoAnn’s Vanilla Cardstock, patterned paper -Graphic 45’s Ladies’ Diary (Delicate Details both A & B sides and Lasting Impressions A side), Tim Holtz Distress Ink-Vintage Photo, Stampin Up Very Vanilla satin ribbon, a Martha Steward Doily punch, and some fun foam to pop up the title. 

Well thanks for stopping by and I hope this Mother’s Day was a great one for you!

Happy Mother's Day!


Happy Mother’s Day

Today I am sharing a couple of Mother’s Day projects I did. These were actually pretty simple and quick. 
I made a 4x4” gift card holder with a matching envelope.  For this project I used some Recollections white cardstock, the patterned paper is a 6x6 paper pack from MME’s (2011) Lost & Found Collection called Market Street.  I used a Spellbinders die called Splendid Circles (S4-354), some Stampin Up Real Red Card Stock, a Stampin Up 1 ¾” circle punch, Altenew layering stamp set: Vintage Roses,  Altenew Crisp Inks , Red Sunset Cube Set , Tropical Forest Cube Set ,  pop-dots, and ¼” vanilla ribbon from JoAnns.   I used some scraps from the above mentioned  patterned paper pack and the We R Memory Keepers punch board to make the matching envelope.   I added a pocket in the inside for either a gift card or cash.   I didn’t follow any tutorial, I just improvised as I went along until I came up with the final project.

Happy Administrative Professionals Week!


Hello Everyone!

It’s time for the May challenge over at EclecticEllapu.  This month’s theme is a big fan favorite…Anything Goes!!!    For my design team inspiration card I decided to do something related to Administrative Professional’s Week.  I used a digital stamp I got from Pinterest.  I resized it and printed it out on my laser printer on some 80# Neenah.  I used Copics to colour the picture, a gold Gelly Roll pen, and some Wink of Stella Clear to give it some shimmer.  I kept it really simple but I think it turned out really cute!

Vintage Rose Just A Note...

Hey everyone,
Running a little behind on this one.  I got a promotion recently, so my days, night, time, and whatever else you can think of are all running together.  But anyway, let me just jump right in to my DT card for the April challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu.  Both teams have been combined.  The theme for April is "Shabby Chic" or  "Vintage"!!  One of my favorites.  Today, I did a super quick note card over at my stampin' BFF Lesia's house (Mema's Crafts) .  I have been watching Jennifer McGuire on You Tube and wanted to try out the Altenew products.  I used their layered stamp set called "Vintage Rose", along with their awesome crisp ink cubes.  The patterned  paper is MME "Howdy Doody" (6x6 pad).  I used some plain white cardstock from JoAnn's and cream ribbon from my stampin' BFF Lesia's stash.   I love the way it turned out.  I hope to see you in the challenge, I am really looking forward to the vintage and shabby chic projects and inspiration!
