Autumn Blessings

Hi everyone! I'm here to share a project I created for Eileen Hull's Inspiration Team! The theme this month we had to do something with a holiday/season theme and I decided I would create a card with an Autumn theme.


I started with a folded 6"x6" piece of cardstock, 4 1/2"x5 1/2" of patterned paper, two Embroidery Hoops and a Needle Book Diecuts as the base for the beginning of my card.


I inked the edges of the patterned paper and adhered off center of the card base.


Next I staggered the embroidery hoops dies over the needle book die and adhered to the back side of the needle book diecut.


This is what the front should look like and I didn't glue the hoops down on the front since I wanted to be able to add embellishments underneath.


I cut down three straws, splattered with paint and once dry tied thread around all three and adhered to the card.


I cut two of the larger leaves and one for the leaf sprigs from the Spring Leaves from white cardstock. I painted those with water colors and when almost dry I shaped and then splattered with brown water colors. Next I cut four of the Romance Flowers from white cardstock and did the same as I did with the leaves. Lastly I cut four of the Heart and Soul Flowers from cardstock, shaped and put together and added an extra large brad to the center. I adhered that along with the larger leaves and two of the smaller romance flowers to the lower half of the card.



I printed the sentiment from the computer, inked the edges and glued along with the other two flowers and the leaf sprig to the upper corner of the card.



I added a few fake berries, copper metallic thread and a mini pine cone to finish off my card.

Bits and Pieces Mini Junk Journal

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a few photos and a mini video of a journal I created for Magnolia Exchange swap I am in. This month's theme was mini mail whatever you send to your swap partner can't be no bigger than 3"x4".


After being paired up with my swap partner I decided to create a mini junk journal for her. 


She liked all colors and liked all animals wither they had fur or was scaly. So I tried my best to include what I had in animal images through out the journal.


I raided my stash of stickers, scraps of cardstock and embellishments to decorate the inside. 


Also I included a quick flip through video so you can see more of the inside.


Also if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Nurture Your Soul


Hi everyone! Can you believe that only on a couple of days it will be official Fall??? Compared to last year it is way cooler which I have mixed feeling about. Don't get me wrong I do like it a little cooler but not to where you are turning on the heat and bundling up. Give me low 80's during the day and upper 60's at night year round and I am happy. 😊
Also I wanted to share this little Bible that I altered and it is featured over on the Canvas Corp blog today! For all the how to's you can find the blog post HERE.

Thinking of You Roses Card

Hi everyone! I wanted to share a quick card I created with some leftover cardstock scraps, diecuts, etc. that I had laying on my desk. I started by folding a 6"x6" piece of patterned cardstock in half to create a base for my card. Next I had scraps of cardstock that had roses on them so I fussy cut those out and along with half of a doily I adhered all to the front of the card.


I added Stickles to the larger rose and mini lime green gems to the smaller roses. I watercolored four of the smallest Romance Flower Diecuts, crinkled and glued two each together. Added a dot of Stickles to the center of each, added a leaf sprig, tulle and twine to finish off the flowers. I printed the "thinking of you" verbiage from the computer and matted with a patterned cardstock before adhering to the card.
If you have any questions about this card please let me know.


Also I would like to submit this card to the following challenge:
