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.
