Index Card Holder

My attempt at making one...
 
My daughter is taking a collage course and needs to have a holder for her index cards.  She asked if I could make her something...ummmm YA I can!  I've never made one of these before so it's not great and I would make the measurements an extra 1/4" but I think in the end it turned out pretty...OK.
 
The index cards are your typical 3"x5" cards.  I measured around those measurements adding a 1/4" as I scored the chipboard.  I ever so gently scored the chipboard with my cutter. 
 
I kept the design simple and plain since it's for school.  I picked up some of these little Velcro dots at the $1 store in the sewing section. I thinking I'll add a tiny attacher staple to it so it's more secure.

 
I cut a Mini Ticket with chipboard, a couple coats of antique linen distress paint and some sanded edges.  I stamped this awesome hand from the Merchantile stamp set. 

 
I added some dividers using manila card stock (or a file) and this tab cut from the tiny tabs die. I cut a small strip of left over manila scrap to fit inside the tab so she can remove it and label.

 
 I stamped each of the card dividers with stamps from Laboratorie, Merchantile and Typography.

 
With some of the left over manila scraps I cut, scored and fan folded the sides.
 
I wrapped the chipboard box in some paper stash scraps I had.  I distressed the edges and added some vintage photo distress paint to the grungy edges.

 
I have these AWESOME teeny tiny letter stamps I just picked up a couple weeks ago from Michaels for $1.50.  They are perfect for tiny tabs, tags and stamping your own titles. I stamped at random so it looks perfectly messy. 

 
I hope it lasts the 6 month course! 
 
 
Thanks for stopping by.  I so appreciate all the kind thoughts you continue to share when you pop in.
 
Challenges are fun!

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 …

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…

An Experiment... Hit RECORD!!!

OK, super funny maybe not funny story.  
I just got these Studio Style lights for filming.  I thought... Ohhh I'll make some pages in my Media Journal and test the lighting.  Meanwhile, you get a video out of the deal.  Ya... that would have been the best if I hit "record".  UGH...  a did this whole thing too with Scribble Sticks and Paint.

Check it out!  Ranger has Mixed Media Embossing Powders that I just got.  Ya, that was cool on video if I hot record.  There was all this stenciling and powders flowing!  Oscar nominated stuff.

Dylusion Paints and Dina Wakely has new washi tape so yep that went on too.  

See the face see, see!  That's the scribble stick awesomeness!  All this dipping in water, scribbling and blending with the Dynasty Brushes.   I was all like "ya this is cool"!  No proof it was me...

Check out the Mixed Media Embossing Powder.  All close up and everything.

Layers and layers of paint, stamping, stencils, tissue.

If only there was a video…
