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.

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

Snow Scene Cloche

Sometimes it starts with an idea... like silver rich brush bottle trees.  OH YA IT DOES...
Do you remember the ghostly cloche... well I am repurposing the cloche for Christmas.  Why buy more when I can use it again by simply creating a removable base.

There's the empty cloche and a new cut out base.  Gather a bunch of trees and ink up some glittery paper for die cutting.

More inking and die cutting the Snowman Scene snowman then assemble this adorable snow stopping snowman.  I had some left over gold deers from last year so I snapped them up for a little added gold.

Here's the inspiration... this brushed pewter brush bottle trees.  Once dry brush some distress collage medium coating the trees and coat in distress glitter.

They look like flocked Canadian trees.  Too add more gold I inked up an adornment star with alcohol ink topped to the tree.

Mini Holiday Green cut and the little berry's in more gold.  I rolled up woodgrain paper to look like wee logs.  Then wrapped the b…
