Needle Book in 10 minutes

Needle Book die in 10 minutes are less!  
Truth be told... I CHEATED!  How... I had everything sitting ready to go.  Now, I don't know about you but I always have extra die cuts, inky backgrounds and embellishments ready to just throw on a project in a hurry.    

Sometimes you need stuff in a hurry!  I had the Duo Butterflies already created from another project.  The Needle Book die was already cut then I assembled some extra idea-ology, sprays, inks and other goodies.

I have 10 minutes... and GO!  I sprayed the needle book die cut with lucky clover and twisted citron distress spray's.  I stamped with the Ledger Script stamp then inked the edges with ground espresso ink.  Then I cut some of the Photobooth images.

EEK... over half way!  I popped the "pre-made" butterfly onto the front cover.  Layered some paper and added these fun Keepsake Envelopes by Scrapbook Adhesive. 

I added this pretty Metal Butterfly Brad for the strap part of the Needle Book die.

I had the butterfly already sitting ready on my desk.

Love these teeny keepsake envelopes.

I love that you can see through them.

These are perfect for a quick addition.

I tied a small piece of lacy ribbon around the binding.

Check out Eileen's Blog for more inspiration on quicky projects!

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Simply Spring

Just a simple card with stuff I had laying around or partially started.  What could be more easy than that.  Sometimes you just have to dig through your stuff.  Click the links below to see what I used.

You are the best... using Ranger's new Letter It stamps.

A little mixed media die cutting.

I went all inky then added a coat of clear rock candy distress glitter.  If only the shimmer came through.

Love these flowers.

A grungy little edge.

This is a simple little card with a couple of easy techniques.  We have so much snow so I guess I just need some cheery spring.

Watercoloring with Butterflies & Oxides

The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team has been sharing tutorials all month long.  I do have a video tutorial for this card but it won't be read for awhile.  Hey, it happens.  I at least have a couple of photo's until the whole video is posted on Creative Scrapbooker Magazines website.

Loving the new Oxide inks especially as we approach those soft easter pallets.

A little stamping.

I know it's not a box or cool journal.  One of my favourite dies is the Birds & Butterflies thinlit.  Yep, there are pretty little dies perfect for card making too.

I love the intricate butterfly to layer over.

A simple card and no it's not even a journal.

I will share the video when it's all done and posted.  I will even embed it in the post too.
Onto next month...
