Summer Wreath

I made a Summer Wreath for my front door.  All supplies were already in my craft room too.  It's not your normal grape wreath or pool noodle but it's fun just the same.
 
I cut "fit to page" for my Plantin School Book "S".  It's my favourite font.  I traced the S on cardboard then cut.  When you wrap the twine it really firms up the cardboard.  Just use Hot Glue and wrap away! 
 
Be careful, I melted my finger prints off;)
 
I really tried to stay minimal.  I simply cut canvas with Tattered Floral to make the flowers.  On this one I stamped with Paris Memoir, the word stamp.  The butterfly is smeared with some summery Distress Paints and heat dried.
 
 
Cutting grunge board and Word Play die I spelled SUMMER and attached with some screen mesh.  More hot glue to keep it in place. 
 
 
This flower I didn't stamp or ink...or ANYTHING!  Shocking...I know.  This metal embellishment is an Upholstery Nail I got and Home Depot.
 
 
UGH one day I'll get to change my horrible door!  But for now sprucing it up with my version on a summer wreath helps...I hope?
 
 
 I'm not a "wreath" kinda girl.  But this is pretty organic so it appealed to me.  The whole thing took about an hour and a half.  Not bad considering this was all lying around my craft room.  Well, not really.  I am organizing and came across the twine, which got me thinking...

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...
