Hi friends! I hope you’re having an awesome weekend! I’m super stoked to share another Ephemoire inspiration project with you this month. If you haven’t already done so, be sure to head over to the Ephemoire Etsy Shop to check out all the amazing digital printables… there are collage sheets, digital papers, journal kits, clip art and mixed media printables, and the print quality is awesome!

As mentioned in my last post, I’ve been playing with the Is It Autumn Yet #1 this month, and using that paper collection along with Is It Autumn Yet #2, Is It Autumn Yet #3 and Is It Autumn Yet #4 letter size digi papers, I created an Autumn-themed stationery box that holds six cards and envelopes, six tags, three trifold notelets with belly bands, a lined book, a postage stamp pocket and a pen. This is the second stationery box I’ve made and I thoroughly enjoyed it! This version was highlighted in a Splitcoast Stampers newsletter a couple years ago HERE and I’m so glad I bookmarked it!

Before I show you the contents, here are some shots of the outside of the box. It’s amazing to me how much fits in this box! ;)


Now for the fun stuff! Here is the lined book that can be used to record birthdays, addresses or whatever your heart desires, a pocket for postage stamps, and a handy-dandy pen! I attached the book with two small velcro circles on the back side so it can be removed to add extra pages when necessary, and the next pic shows the extra pages I included. ;)

Here are the six tags, each with a different paper pattern.

Here are the three 3″ x 3″ trifold notes, each with a belly band, and the next pic shows one of them opened up.

And another shot of the set. I’m super happy with how this turned out! The digital papers in these four sets are just amazing and would do ANY project justice! Swoon and drool! LOL!

Autumn High Heel & Clutch

9/30/19 Best Technique Winner at Classic Design Team Challenge Blog!
10/11/19 Top 3 at Not Just Cards Challenges!

Hello, my crafty friends! I hope you’re having a great weekend! I’m really excited to share my Ephemoire inspiration project with you this morning. If you haven’t already done so, be sure to head over to the Ephemoire Etsy Shop to check out all the amazing digital printables… there are collage sheets, digital papers, journal kits, clip art and mixed media printables, and the print quality is awesome!

I’ve been playing with the Is It Autumn Yet #1 letter size digi papers and created an awesome high heel with matching clutch. Of course, these will hold a place of honor in my paper shoe collection! I’ve had this high heel shoe template in my stash for a number of years. I really love the shoe’s elegance and had a hard time picking just one paper from this collection to make it. I settled on the golden color print and so glad I did. I had small paper flowers in my stash that match perfectly! ;)

2019_0908006a

I designed the clutch myself from cardstock, covered it in the golden print paper, and added a couple flowers. It’s not quite big enough for a gift card (would have been too large in comparison to the shoe), but a folded check or money will easily fit into the pouch. It has a small velcro closure.

2019_0908007a

One more look… super happy with how this project turned out! Love, love, love ALL the digital papers in this collection – they are absolutely gorgeous!

Happy Birthday

10/3/19 Top 3 at Brown Sugar Challenge Blog!

Hi everyone! Happy Hump Day! Today is my post day on the Simply Crafty SVGs Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project with you, an adorable birthday wagon full of posies, created with the Simply Crafty SVGs Wagon of Flowers Box Card cut file. Super cute and loads of fun!

2019_087004a

Sandy created this as a box card which folds flat for mailing, however, I took it one step further and made it into a fixed piece of decor for a mantle or shelf. ;) I love how this turned out! I do apologize for how the ‘Happy Birthday’ sentiment photographed in this pic – foil is so darn hard to photograph!

2019_087005a

Here’s a shot of the back of the wagon which features a plain panel for writing a custom message and signature.

2019_087006a

I used a gold foil sentiment sticker rather than stamping on this one, and it could be used for just about any occasion. I think is this one of my favorite cut files so far and I have several favorites… lots of fun picking out the bright colors and putting this together! ;)

Clutch with 6 Notelets

Hi everyone! We are busting through the months… it’s September 1st already! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Mix It Up Challenge Blog and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project for MIUCB #29 – Anything Goes + 3-D Project! Remember, all of our challenges are ‘anything goes’ and we offer a different technique twist each month for inspiration but the twist is not required to play! This month the twist is to create a 3-D project – which could be something like jewelry, gift box, canvas, gift bag, home decor, etc. I created a clutch containing a set of six notelets.

Leslie

I created the clutch with a sheet of double-sided 12×12 paper. I got my inspiration from a tutorial in a recent Splitcoast Stampers newsletter HERE. I added a hot pink ‘hello’ die cut, some tiny flat-back pearls and a layered sticker over the closure. Then I created a set of six notelets featuring a hot pink ‘hello’ die cut, tiny flat-back pearls, a wide strip of the floral paper and a narrow strip of the hoy pink cardstock. I included A1 sized envelopes that I ordered from Amazon.

2019_07200014a

One more look – a close-up of the closed clutch. LOVE how this turned out! What fun!

Red Glitter Ornament

Hi friends! I hope you’re having a wonderful crafty weekend! This month’s challenge is live over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project with you for MLCCB #14 – September Anything Christmas Goes! I created a beautiful red glitter ornament which I plan to gift because with eight cats, we won’t be putting up a tree again this year, lol! We love our fur babies, but boy-oh-boy they sure can wreak havoc on a Christmas tree! Bwahahaha!

Ornaments are really easy to create with intricate dies, as long as the design is the same on both sides. I cut four die cuts of this pretty round ornament from red glitter paper.

2019_0811001a

I folded each of them down the middle and adhered the right side of one to the left side of the next until all four were adhered. Just prior to adhering the third one to the fourth one, I sandwiched a loop of metallic string between the layers. I added a few clear rhinestones for a little extra added bling.

2019_0811002a

And here’s one more close-up look. Super happy with how this turned out!

Pink & Purple Dotted Bowls

Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday – I hope you’re having a great week! I’m not posting on the Simply Crafty SVGs Blog today but have popped in this morning to share an extra DT inspiration project with you, a pair of dotted bowls created with the free Simply Crafty SVGs Embellishment Bowl cut file. Yes, I said free, so be sure to check it out! ;)

2019_087001a

I inked the upper and lower edges of these bowls with white chalk ink to disguise the white core of the dotted papers I chose.

2019_087002a

Sandy hit the ball home when she created this file… these bowls are an amazing addition to any crafter’s studio and went together seamlessly. I just had to have a couple of these on my table to put small embellishments in so I wouldn’t lose them. Can’t tell you how many times I’ve lost small things that I had set aside for projects I was working on! Love how these turned out and I’m thoroughly enjoying using them! ;)

2019_087003a

Products used:
Cardstock/Paper: Colorbok pink and purple cardstock, Colorbok pink and purple Seeing Dots paper stack
Ink: White chalk ink
Dies/Punches: Free Simply Crafty SVGs Embellishment Bowl cut file

Laundry counted cross-stitch

Hi everyone! Happy August 1st – it should be about time for the weather to start cooling off! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog, and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #37 – August Anything Goes! I created the most adorable laundry room wall hanging! OMG!

Leslie

I picked up this counted cross-stitch kit almost a year and a half ago, and it had been laying in my studio, so I decided to make it. It had been a very (very) long time since I did any counted cross-stitch, but I remembered how easy it was to do. The kit contained the cloth, all the colors of thread and the hoop, and I added the bow at the top.

2019_0720002a

One more look… so glad I finally got around to making this! I just love it!
