Baby's Mobile

Finally posting the last of my Baby Shower gifts I made last week, a Nursery Mobile.  Lots of pictures in this post for you so I'll do less blabbering.
 

For the Animals I used Create a Critter cut at 3 1/2".  Then use the "Flip" button and cut again.  Mobiles do twist.

This little Monkey is the smallest cut at the 3 1/2".

I cut C for Charlotte using Sophisticated at 5 1/2" then added some Stickles in the accent.

Mooooo....

LOOOVE the Hippo!  I missed a close up of the Owl but you can see him too as you look at the mobile.  Poor Owl...

I even decorated the bottom of the lid.

I scallop cut the top with matching paper and added this pretty ribbon to trim it out.  The lid is a coffee tin lid.  It's easy to pop the holes in the lid for the ribbon.  The ribbon is from the Michaels $1 bin.

Cut the ribbon at the length you want and knot it on the top. 

I used the red sticky tape for the ribbon in between the animal layers.  Then I popped them with dimensionals. 

My little mass of critters!

Here is the card I posted to match.  See now the ribbon makes sense!  Click HERE to see the card with more photo's...or scroll down.

And the Nursery Wall Decor Project.  All are in matching paper.  Click HERE to see more photo's.

I did make one more card for my SIL for her baby shower gift.  I will post that shortly.  Then we can move on from babies to my daughters Sweet 16 projects I have been working on! 

Hope you enjoyed the mobile and I always love the comments!

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 …

It's a Wrap

It's here... finally the Book Club 2 is releasing this month.  The Inspiration Team is sharing their Book Club 2 projects all month long to inspire you.  We are so excited to share the projects we made for Creativation.  This new release is perfect for all things journaling.
I was sent patent leather in blue.  I threaded some white elastic and through the Wrap Journal and added a wee patch of Velcro.  I decided to put the shiny side  and the more muted blue on the outside for a suede look.

I picked up this little note book at the $1 store and it's a perfect fit.  I added the 

Look... Journaling Words.


I even stamped the Wrap Journal on the outside.





Throw in a couple pages.


A few pockets...

Get ready to travel.

 Finally so excited to share this Wrap Journal I have been holding on to for 6 months.  I love this new Journal and it's a great addition to your journals.  Be sure to check out all the new accessory cuts to deck out your journaling.

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...
