Here is a card front I did a few months ago using Heartfelt Creations' Cross and Lilies Pre-Cut Set HCPC #3450.  I coloured the image using Copic Markers and ProMarkers.   I was binge watching Jennifer McGuire Ink one night and saw her make an adorable card using some dies by Mama Elephant.    One die she used  is called Femme Frames-Creative Cuts. I used the Femme Frames to make this card.  I love the stitched look around the edges.  I also used some fun foam to pop the card face up for more dimension.  I’m sending this to my sister who is a minister.  I scanned the photo in the computer, shrunk it down and made some miniature cards similar to the one I’m sending my sister so she can send them out to her church members as needed.  I have included the video for Jennifer McGuire’s video (warning: you will be binge watching all night…lol).  Many thanks to Jennifer for her inspirational projects and crafting ideas.

Kaiser Craft ATC Mini and Video

Hello everyone,
I had some time so I thought I would post a project I did some time ago and forgot to put on the blog.  This is a 4 ¼ x 3 ¼ “ mini album.  I used the tutorial done by Alexandra M, which can be found on YouTube.   I made a few adjustments, so that my mini is a little bigger than hers according to her measurements.  I also did a little tutorial after my show and tell on a couple things in the mini with Alexandra’s permission.  The majority of the paper I used is now out of print, it is called 75Cents, the manufacture is Kaiser Craft.  On the spine I used some faux suede paper from JoAnn’s (black) and a metal Fleur-de-Lys charm embellishment on the spine, some flat back gold pearls in each of the corners, I cut out a doily from one of my favorite doily dies, cut it in half used some of the paper for the center and a closure for Hobby Lobby.  This is a perfect little mini for wallet sized photos, inspirational quotes, Bible verses, or what I call God moments that you want to remember.  I plan to use my mini for inspirational quotes and Bible verses.
Many, many thanks to Alexandra. Here is the link to Alexandra M's YouTube video ATC Mini .   Also, I have inserted the show and tell YouTube video I made.  Hopefully you will be inspired to give it a try.

Summer Time with Graphic 45

Hello everyone,
Well, summer is here in Texas! The kids are out of school, its hurricane season, and it's hot know what!  It's also time
for another strutt-ya-stuff challenge at Eclectic Ellapu.  This month's theme is "SUMMER" yes it is!!  For my challenge inspiration project I am going to continue with my inspired calendar series from Eclectic Paperie.  I used the July month to model my calendar page.  I'm in Texas and during this time it's all baseball and the Texas Rangers and American Independence (July 4th).  I changed up a few things on my calendar page to incorporate baseball and the 4th. Nothing says summer like our heat, the beach, baseball, and firework on the 4th.  I am loving the calendar pages.  It also helps that I'm doing 8x8 calendar pages.  I can get through a page in about a hour (now that is fast for me).   I also decided to use the empty mini calendars and eventually I will have tiny little numbers that I can use over and over.   Here are few pictures for you to enjoy.   Til' next time...

Supplies used for this project:
Graphic 45 Place In Time-July 8 x 8 and 12 x 12 calendar pages
Graphic 45 Place In Time 12 x 12 Foundations page (used for all the base pages)
Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink
Martha Stewart Doily punch
Black Card stock-Michaels (Recollections)
Cricut cartridge-Old West (1"cut)
American Craft- cream coloured thin jute (dyed with Copic E19)

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!
