Pocket Tag In A Bag!

Hey Crafty Peeps!! Today I want to share a swap project in progress... I made a pocket tag in a bag! The themes used were sweet treats and my partner likes penguins. I fussy cut and made rosettes to add on paper straws and popsicle sticks. I have a YouTube video available Here if you'd like to see it in its entirety. I have also added some pictures below.

Tsunami Rose Design Team Flipbook and Junk Journal

Hey Crafty Peeps! I'm here to share my October 2016 DT projects using Daisy Collins new "Tea Party" kit! This kit had me the second I laid eyes on it! I mean who dosent love cakes, desserts, and yummy tea?! The color combinations make this very shabby chic. I personally used glimmer mists and choose to cool aid dye, food color and coffee dye my pages, leaving them each with a beauty all their own. If you want to check out the full flip of my Junk Journal do so HERE and if you want to see my flip of my flip book you can find it Right here. Below you will see a few pictures of both and don't forget to stop into Daisys Etsy shop By clicking here and her blog which you can find Here.

August 14th DT for Tsunami Rose

Hey Crafty peeps! I'm here to share my DT project for Tsunami Rose! I created a envelope journal of sorts, I have a video uploaded onto my youtube which you can view HERE  I used some large white envelopes to make this journal and I also made two signatures of journaling paper. This was a totally new type of journal for me and untraditional in the sence of how I put it together, I did enjoy the construction! This is just a small share and I hope you can get over to my YouTube and check out that video! Thanks for coming on over to read my blog!!!

My DIY Enamel Dots...

So finally I gave it a go... the DIY enamel dots I've seen all over.. I.found some pastel pony beads at Joannes and gave it a go! Setting my oven at 350 I lined cookie sheets with parchment paper and lined then up! I quickly realized I needed to go to 400 degrees and also realized I hadn't bought the conventional pony beads.. mine seemed shiny and better made which explains the higher price lol.. it took 15 minutes to completely get them round with the hole gone.. overall I'm pleased and I will do it again.. I plan to package them up for embellishments swaps in my FB groups and for swap extras:) I have added some pictures below!

Stuffed Accordion Pockets!

Hey Crafty Friends! Im hosting a swap over in one of my FB Groups "Handmade Embellishments and Altered Items" which you can find and join HERE  for handmade embellishments.. I put these together to hold my goodies and thought I'd share them with you! I constructed my Accordion pocket with a single 6 by 6 sheet of paper, inside I have loaded it up with tags, journal cards, handmade ephemera, mini envelopes etc... I decorated the pockets with embellishments and i am overall very happy with how they came out! I have been seeing these overstuffed envelopes on youtube the last few days and i can not wait to give that a try soon also! Im thinking of hosting a swap specifically for these so if you have any interest on getting on board please come on over and join!! Thanks you for taking the time to have a peek:) XoXo

Junk Journal Page Ideas

Hello crafty Peeps! Today while I was preparing to start my "Retro" JJ for a swap in my paper crafting group on FB "Papercrafters United" i started thinking about creating unique pages that are fun to look at, touch and use! I started looking back at a few of my journals to gather the most unique styles of pages and wanted to share those with you! For those of you new to JJs you may want to catch up on my blog posts for a look at a few of mine as well as my YouTube channel which you can get to by clicking HERE ... I have gathered the pages I plan to receate with a twist in my new JJ.. I think this time i will add a few new elements.. i love the pages in Paper Bag minis, how they are constructed with an additional flap added onto the page and how you have the tucks for tags or ephemera.. i may create a few hinges and add in some new pages! Im also considering a few other mini album elements and will be sure to share those with you as i go! So here are those pages!

Here is a page out of my Fairytale JJ... I have created a doily tuck and made a large tag out of a page taken from an actual childrens fairytale. On the opposite side I have a piece of torn coffee dyed parchment paper i made into a side loading pocket and uses twine to create a bow.. Inside i have left a journaling spot! I plan to use these ideas on a page in my upcoming JJ!

Yet again we are looking at the same JJ, While this page is not very unique i do love the pocket tuck and wanted to share it.. you can see that i have folded a page down a bit to create a pocket but i only adheared the pulled down part on either side to leave it as a tuck! So i have on one page a place to add items into my pocket and also slide in some journaling paper where i created that tuck spot! The opposite page is just a smaller page and for some interest I had added a flower.

This JJ was featured in Faith Crafter Magazine, here tore a piece of paper that was coordinated with the other page on the opposite side, I could have choose to ink it for added effect but did not. The other side was edge punched to create some effect and I had some tags tucked so that they would peek out.. That is a homemade embellishment cluster which I will be showing in a later post! The final Pic is showing use of a small half page, I created a belly band with a punch and slid two phrase tags into that band.. You can use your imagination and create fun and unique pages!
