Gift Tag / Package Topper/ Ornament With Cheery Lynn Doily Die!

Hello Everyone!

It is cold here in Illinois and last night we got our first dusting of snow!  I am not much of a snow person but in light of all of the issues others are having elsewhere, a little snow is NOTHING!

Here is a gift Tag/Package Topper I made using  dies from my FAVORITE Die Company, Cheery Lynn Designs!


This was made using th Italian Flourish Doily Die, Snowflake Number 2 and Snowflake Number 5.  Add a little tulle, a brad for the center and a banner and that is it!

Easy, fun and Beautiful!




Isn't this a WONDERFUL idea to hang from a gift bag or to lace on top of a gift?!?!!?  And if you would like you can even make it into an ornament by adding the exact same layers to the other side and placing a string in the middle to hang it from!

These Doily Dies can be used for so many things!

Hope you enjoyed the project!  There is a recording over on my  UStream Channel that you can watch as I create this as well!

Thanks and Stay Warm!

Altered Boxes

Hi Everyone!

I am having so much fun altering these Boxes!  I was totally inspired by Miranda Edney who is an amazing creator and I just loved the idea so much that I tried it myself.  Well, once I started I found I could not stop!  They are sooo easy and fun to do and I find them totally relaxing as well!  The box slides open and can hold a variety of things.  You can even use it to present a gift for the holiday season.  Keep in mind that the box is a gift itself!

The first one I made was for Christmas:

 

There are 100's of small flowers on this box.  Some of them have pearls in the centers too.  I added some music paper to the side and lined it with Jingle Bells and added an Ornament  as the embellishment as well.  The bow is an added embellishment that just adds to the presentation!  I am planning on using this box to store my Christmas cards in that I receive for the Holiday season.  It will be displayed on my table!

I couldn't stop after the first one so I decided to do an Angel box!  Well, it turns out I made 3 Angel boxes!





I LOVE them all!  My next one is going to be a winter themed box with a snowflake as the embellishment!

Hope you are creating some things for the holidays yourself!

Journal With Me

Hi Everyone!

Life is crazy busy but good!  I am sorry for not being on UStream for a while, however I have been sick and that along with wedding planning and traveling doing craft shows, it has been CRAZY!  I have missed all of you thought!  I will resume streaming in my classroom on Thursday Sept 5th!  I am planning on doing some FUN journaling classes!  I invite you to join me and have some fun as well as learn some things about yourself and maybe even some others! We can post and share our journal pages as well.  If enough people want to join in we can start a facebook group where we can share our pages as well!

I will be providing a question at each class and decorating pages to go along inside my journal for where I will be answering the question I shared... nothing fancy, just fun and just ME!  I may just be just adding rub ons, making flowers, using some fun glitters and inks, decorating dividers, making journal cards...all easy, but fun stuff!  Because I don't ever seem to have the time to do what I like on my own, I thought I would incorporate it into a class and get two things accomplished at once!  I get to visit with all of you and get something done as well!

I can get you the supplies I will be using myself if you would like me too, however all you really need to get on your own is a journal of some kind with a lot of paper!  I am going to be working in a beautiful 6 X 8 album so that I can make my journal as thick as I want.  Since I plan on adding pages I thought a binder would be a better option for me.  You can use a regular journal or anything at all that you would like as well!

Here is the journal I am getting for myself:

Leather Binder. The album is made of high quality faux leather and has non-slip interlocking 3 D-ring binding; plus it has a metal label holder on the outside. The leather binder coordinates with other products for quick and easy memory keeping. This package contains one 8-1/4x9x2-1/2 inch binder that holds 6x8 inch pages. Available in a variety of colors; red, brown, teal (as pictured), green and black.

The journal can be found in my artfire store here:



As I work in my journal I will put kits together for you to have the ability to purchase if you would like them!  They will include dividers, page protectors, pouches, paper, and several different embellishments.  There are a few fun stamps I will be using as well that you can purchase!  You can order at any time here in my store!

I hope you will join me in creating this fun project!

Have a crafty day!
