Violets & Bees Mini Album

Hello, my crafty friends! I hope you’re having a good day! I’ve popped in this morning to share my Ephemoire inspiration project with you. 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 Violets & Bees #1 Scrapbook Papers Letter Size, Violets & Bees #2 Scrapbook Papers Letter Size, Violets & Bees Printed Washi Tape, Violets & Bees Ephemera Collage Sheet and Violets & Bees Mini Card and Envelope Set, and created a mini album. Violets & Bees is a FABulous collection and needless to say, I’ve had a blast!

Green and purple is one of my all-time favorite color combos. I printed the papers and mini cards and envelopes, and trimmed them all. I printed the washi tape and ephemera sheets twice, and fussy cut all the elements. I created the album base from white cardstock, punched three holes on each page, and also created the reinforcements for the holes using two circle punches. I adhered a different paper to each page of the album, created assorted pockets, and positioned all the elements where I wanted them, one page at a time, and when I was happy with the placement, I adhered everything down.

There are 12 pages and each page contains one or two tags tucked into a pocket, ready for journaling or photos. All the tags have ribbon pulls, and I added skinny Washi tape and dot sparklers to each page. Really loving how this turned out!

For Someone Special

Hello, my crafty friends! I hope you’re having a good crafty day! I’m super stoked 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 various papers from Floral Field Notes #1, Floral Field Notes #2 and Floral Field Notes #3, all letter size, and created a four-drawer easel card. This is only the second one of these I’ve made – the first one was back in August of 2015 for another DT I was on at the time, and if you’d like to take a peek, it’s HERE. I have to say, I like this one better, lol! ;)

I created the base from heavy cardstock so it would keep it’s shape, then cut all the pieces to go around the outside of the box, the top of the box and the easel. The sentiments are computer-generated and I cut them with dies. I added flowers and a charm from my stash, and created the leaves with a punch.


I lined all the drawers and added flower brads for the drawer pulls. ;) 

Here’s one more look, open and closed… loving how this one turned out! So fun! ;)

Shabby Chic Thank You note cards

Hello, my crafty friends! I hope you’ve had an awesome week! I’m super stoked 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! And there’s an awesome sale going on right now… 50% off most everything in the shop… so what are you waiting for?!

I’ve been playing with the Pretty In Pink Printable Papers Letter Size and created a set of 10 shabby chic thank you cards. One can never have too many thank you cards in their stash! ;)

2019_0619006a

I’m a cardmaker at heart, dubbed “The Card Queen” many years ago and recently re-dubbed the same by an online crafting friend, so when I saw these papers I knew what I had to do. ;) These papers are absolutely gorgeous!

2019_0619002a

Each card features torn pink vintage rose papers with either green striped or green peeled paint paper seen underneath, gold foil ‘thank you’ elements layered on punched circles, and a few tiny flat-back pearls.

2019_0619003a

There are five papers in the set, so I printed each of the floral sheets twice, created background pieces, and tore each one a little differently for variety.

2019_0619004a

I created a ‘thank you’ sentiment for each card using a gold foil sticker layered on a punched circle, which I placed randomly on each card.

2019_0619005a

The finishing touch on each card was the application of several tiny white flat-back pearls. I didn’t photograph the inside of the cards but I embellished the inside panel of each one with a thin leftover strip of paper used on the front, leaving plenty of room to write a custom message. Loving how these turned out!

2019_0428005a

I cut the papers and elements from the kit and inked them all. I created the accordion album base from ivory cardstock and inked the edges. I layered the papers for each page on kraft paper, and positioned the elements where I wanted them, one page at a time, and when I was happy with the placement, I adhered everything down.

There are 12 pages and each page contains at least one tag in a pocket, ready for journaling or photos. All the tags have ribbon pulls, and I added Washi tape and bling to each page. Really loving how this turned out!
