Valentine Card and Envelope

Valentine Card and Envelope

Here is a Valentine card.  I used printed cork, burlap and did some machine sewing around the edge of the card.  I did a lot of experimenting on this card but it turned out pretty cool.  Valentine Card SuppliesHere is a photo of some of the supplies you’ll need.  Any kind of heart shape will work for this card.  You’ll also need a corner rounder, a border punch, ink and stamp of choice (I used Close to my Heart chocolate ink and stamp set D1283 Say it in Style).

Tracing Template onto CardstockTrace your template onto a folded piece of cardstock but be careful not to cut the fold.Don't Cut on FoldI used my sewing machine to add some stitching to the card front before I attached it to the card base.Sewing Machine Stitching on CardI made a “candy” heart out of clay for the flower center.Making a "Candy" Heart Out of Clay "Candy" Heart Done

I put it all together then added some Cotton Candy Stickles on the arrow.Completed Valentine CardThen I made a custom envelope to go with the card.

Making the Envelope on the Punch BoardI used the We R Memory Keepers envelope punch board to make my envelope but you can also use the Martha Stewart score board as well (the large one that has the envelope triangle on the back).

Putting the Envelope TogetherI added a liner to my envelope because it’s so easy to add one when you’re making an envelope.

Advent Calendar

Here is a different style Advent calendar aka Christmas count down calendar.

I made this with a Recollections chipboard album.  I took the album apart and embossed all the edges with gold embossing powder.

In the pockets and envelopes are tags with the readings for Advent.

For the two pages that have hinges I bought tiny little jewelry box hinges and “rusted” them with Vintaj Patina paints.

8 1/2″ x 11″ Organizer

I made this organizer a few years ago.  Inside the front cover are two large full length pockets, a box style pocket with a flap for business cards, sticky notes and a pen.  There is also a magnetized hidden area behind the front cover which houses more 8 1/2″ x 11″ paper, inspirational sayings, two photos and a pocket for money.  On the flip side of the inspirational sayings is a changeable year at a glance.  Inside the back cover is a small triangular pocket that holds 8 1/2″ x 11″ paper.

Paper Bag Brag Book

Grampy’s Big Brag Book.  This is a paper bag album.  In true paper bag fashion each page has a large pocket with a tag.  I made these to look like file folders using the envelope punch board by We Are Memory Keepers, however you can use a file folder and trace the tab onto your paper.  This album is packed with tags and pockets and minis within the mini… oh my.  I used a pony tail elastic to hold the album closed and my Bind-it-All to bind it.

I, of course, had to embellish the back cover because I can, why not and it’s another page, so lets use it.

Mixed Media Canvas

I tried my hand at mixed media this weekend.  I don’t know if this is consider a true mixed media but I certainly had fun doing it.  I wanted this to look a little old.

I used a 6″ x 6″   canvas from Close to my Heart, Mowed Lawn Distress Stain for the green color on the canvas and a little dry brushed Gesso.  The rest is leftover odds and ends.  The camera doesn’t pick up the glimmer mists.  I used Log Cabin by Smooch Spritz and Primrose by Heidi Swapp on the canvas, flowers, lace trim, the chipboard heart and letters and jute twine.  The little fan design in the corner was done with Glossy Black Embossing Paste by Dreamweaver and a stencil I had laying around.  I used the Patina Paints by Vintaj on the little “Devoted” tag on the bottom but I didn’t like how it came out so I scraped it off.  After I put it all together I dry brushed Gesso over everything.
