Stamperia Spring Botanic Eileen Hull Treasure Box and Notebook Tutorial

Stamperia Spring Botanic Eileen Hull Treasure Box and Notebook Tutorial

Hello, Friends!  It’s time for another great challenge over on the Frilly and Funkie Blog.  I’ve created a shabby chic Eileen Hull Treasure Box and Notebook Insert Tutorial using Stamperia Spring Botanic papers for my inspiration piece.  But before we take a look at that, let’s see what the magnificent Maggi Harding, our challenge hostess, has to say about this challenge.

Challenge Theme: Spring is in full bloom!
This is my favorite time of the year. Here in the south the trees and shrubs are all blooming and showing their splendor. Many are busy planting their vegetable gardens. The migrating birds have returned to build nests and raise a new family. Your challenge is to create a vintage or shabby chic project that illustrates the magic of spring in bloom!

You all know how much I love creating little lap books filled with pretty papers, interactive elements and sweet embellishments.  It’s truly one of the most satisfying ways I know to spend time in my studio.  But, when you can create a sweet little box to house that little lap book…well, then I’m pretty much in heaven.  When Eileen Hull released her new Treasure Box and Notebook Dies, I was instantly hooked!

I mean…really, people!  That darling little notebook tucks right inside the Treasure Box.   The Treasure Box measures about 5 1/2″ x 3 1/4″ x 4 1/8″ when finished.  And the wee notebook is just as darling at 3 5/8″ x 5″.   Cut the pieces from mat board and you’ll be thrilled when you see that all the fold lines are pre-creased for easy assembly.  This frees you up for what I call “the fun stuff.”  You are ready to decorate and embellish in minutes.

I can think of about a dozen different ways to use this box/notebook combo.  But altering them with these stunning Stamperia Spring Botanic papers was first on my list.  Since I know many of you will want to give this project a whirl, I’ve prepared a tutorial for you to follow.  Because of that, I won’t be sharing a ton of details in my blog post.  They are all in the video for you to enjoy.

Seth Apter Baked Velvet Embossing Powders

As someone who loves to embellish with metals, I’m always thrilled when a product comes along to make my job easier.  All the metals and chipboard used in this project have been altered with Seth Apter’s Mediterranean Baked Velvet Embossing powders.  There are several different ways you can apply these:

  • Press the item into a VersaMark Embossing Ink Pad.  Then sprinkle with the desired powder and heat emboss.
  • Paint the item with Distress Paint, then sprinkle with Baked Velvet while the paint is still wet.  Heat emboss.
  • Cover an item with liquid adhesive and then sprinkle on the Baked Velvet…but this time don’t heat emboss.  You’ll add a lovely soft, almost suede, texture to the item.
  • Mix and match powders to create a custom color.
  • Layer colors as  did in this project…and you’ll learn all about that in the tutorial below.
Spring Botanic Notebook: A Peek Inside

This Spring Botanic Notebook is not a mini album in the sense that it is not designed to hold photos.  My inspiration was to create a sort of lap book, or look book filled with gorgeous images.  Beautiful spring poetry and artful spring quotes are sprinkled through the pages.  I’ve used Tim Holtz Remnant Rubs, Ephemera bits, Paper Dolls and Clippings to enhance the theme.

Here’s a quick peek at some of what you’ll find inside this darling mini album.

Stamperia Spring Botanic Shaker Card Folio Tutorial

Stamperia Spring Botanic Shaker Card Folio Tutorial for Nomadic Soul Diaries

Hello, Friends!  Spring has sprung, and I’m thrilled to be sharing this Stamperia Spring Botanic Shaker Card Folio Tutorial with you.  This lovely little project is created for a Guest Designer Spot with Nomadic Soul Diaries.  I became friends with the gracious and talented Nuneka Box  when she and I both served on the Little Birdie Crafts Design team.  She has been such a blessing and encouragement to me in my mixed media pursuits.  How could I say no when she asked me to design for the April challenge?   Especially since the challenge is to create an interactive card that incorporates sequins in the design!  Was this challenge made for me, or what?

Here’s the inspiration board for this month’s challenge.

Spring Botanic Shaker Card Folio Tutorial: The Details

If you’ve never made a card folio before, you can find a really good basic tutorial HERE.  This tutorial focuses on the creation of the framed shaker box, something which many of you have asked me to do.  So here is your opportunity to learn how to alter a Tim Holtz Vignette Frame with paints and sprays.   (I’ll share a linked supply list below this post.)

Stamperia Spring Botanic Shaker Card Folio Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Nomadic Soul Diaries Photo 02

The folio base measures 5″ x 7″ with a 1/2″ spine.  This is my “go to” size for these little folios.  Beautiful roses and flowers cascade down the side of the frame interspersed with beautiful vintage ribbons.

Stamperia Spring Botanic Shaker Card Folio Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Nomadic Soul Diaries Photo 03

I’ve filled the shaker frame with shaped sequins and mustard seeds to add a real organic feel.  The focal image inside the shaker is cut from the Spring Botanic papers and popped up on waste chipboard.  To add a little steampunk vibe, I added this sweet bee and pocket watch metal embellishment.  I love to create these little vignettes inside my shaker frames.

Before we go any further…this paper!  Be still my beating heart!

Stamperia Spring Botanic Shaker Card Folio Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Nomadic Soul Diaries Photo 05

The top half of the card is a little gallery wall.  Cut apart images have been matted on little folio bases.  Each hanging in the gallery has a magnetic closure with a springtime quote handwritten inside.

Stamperia Spring Botanic Shaker Card Folio Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Nomadic Soul Diaries Photo 06

A flip page on the bottom half of the card has a fun two-tiered pocket design.    I’ve filled this with little tags, a bookmark and a magnet, all made using cut apart images from the collection.

Behind the flip page is a lovely little folio, tucked into a pocket.

A ribbon belly band holds everything together.

TIP:  Line the pages of this little folio with images cut from the collection cover art.  This is a great way to stretch your designer paper.  Because the images and patterns are smaller, sample sizes, the scale is just right.

So that’s a quick look at the folio, inside and out.  I’m so happy with the way it turned out.

Authentique Abundant Easter Bunny Hideaway House

Authentique Abundant Easter Bunny Hideaway House

Hello, Friends!  Happy Easter!  The Easter Bunny is visiting the blog today, in  a super sweet Authentique Abundant Easter Bunny Hideaway House.  This is my inspiration piece for the Authentique Paper Group Post.  You can find more beautiful Easter inspiration over on the Authentique Blog. Authentique Abundant Easter Bunny Hideaway House by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01

Easter Bunny Hideaway House Rescued from The Closet of Shame

Some time ago, I purchased this house shaped shadow box, thinking I would use it to  make some Christmas gifts.  Then life got busy, and the poor house lay forgotten in the Closet of Shame.

Authentique Abundant Easter Bunny Hideaway House by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 02

Somehow, I think it was meant to be.  While doing a little springtime tidy up, I ran across the house and knew immediately that it was destined to become this little Easter Bunny Hideaway House.

 

Easter Bunny Hideaway House: Tips and Tricks

Authentique Abundant Easter Bunny Hideaway House by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 03

Here’s  how I created this dimensional focal image.

  • First, fussy cut around the 4″ x 6″ card front from Abundant 6.
  • Leave an extra 1/2″ border on the bottom edge.
  • Then score along the 1/2″ border and fold.
  • Use your scissors to cut little “v” shapes about 1/2″ apart along this folded edge.  These will serve as tabs that you can adhere to the bottom edge of the shadow box.  Of course, you will want to decorate the back of the box before you insert this element.
  • Fold a lightweight piece of chipboard into 3 sections. Adhere one piece to the back of the Easter Bonnet girl.  Then adhere the other to the back of the shadow box.  You will have to use trial and error to get the length just right.  But this will prevent the girl from flopping over.
Easter Bunny Hideaway House: A Button Tiled Roof

Authentique Abundant Easter Bunny Hideaway House by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 04

Any time I can play with my vintage button collection, I’m a happy girl!  I’ve created a “tiled” roof effect. Add a few more inside the box to resemble the shine of Easter Eggs.

Authentique Abundant Easter Bunny Hideaway House by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 05

Decorate the sides and the back of the box.   You could actually add a 4″ x 6″ photo to the back of the box.

This was such a fun project to make, I just had to share it with you here.  I hope it has served to spark your own creativity.  If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.

Thanks for stopping by!  Wishing you all a warm, wonderful and blessed Easter!

ButterBee Scraps Altered Metal Embellishments Tutorial

ButterBee Scraps Altered Metal Embellishments Tutorial using Graphic 45 Bloom                        and Eileen Hull HeARTfelt Journal Die

Hello, Friends!  Today I’m honored to be sharing a ButterBee Scraps Altered Metal Embellishments Tutorial with you.  You all know how much I love to use metal embellishments on my projects.  When the lovely and gracious LouAnn Hunt over at ButterBee Scraps invited me to do a guest designer spot focusing on altering and using metal embellishments on a project, how could I say no?  To showcase these lovely metal embellishments, I created an Eileen Hull HeARTfelt Journal made with Graphic 45 Bloom collection.  You’ll find a linked supply list for this project at the end of this post.

Altered Metal Embellishments Tips and Tricks

Altered Metal Embellishments Tutorial Eileen Hull Journal Die Graphic 45 Bloom Video by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 01

Sometimes I like to mix metals on a project.  But sometimes, I want the finishes to match.  What to do?   Altering a metal embellishment is easy, fun, and not too messy.  Here’s how I altered these embellishments:

  • First, place an old paper bag, magazine or other disposable surface on your work space.
  • Next, dry brush both sides of each embellishment with a light coat of gesso or paint.  For this project, I used an ivory chalk paint.  But I’ve also had great success with Antique Linen Distress Paint.
  • Now heat dry the paint, or let it air dry for about 15 minutes.
  • Then, tap the raised surfaces with a little Graphic 45 Old Moss Decades Ink.  This really brings out the subtle details in the metals.
  • Finally spray the embellishments with a little mica spray to add a hint of shimmer.  Heat Dry.
    • I used Perfect Pearls Green Patina Mist (retired).  You can actually make your own mica spray by mixing about 1/2 tsp of Perfect Pearls Powder with tap water.  Then place in a mister bottle and you are all set.

The video tutorial below will guide you through all the necessary steps for making this journal.  So I’ll just share a few teaser photos with you here.

TIP: Apply a coat of Distress Collage Medium/Matte to the back of the papers used on the journal covers and signatures.  I find this works the best of all the adhesives I’ve tried for this particular process.  Then burnish well with a bone folder to push out any air pockets.

Using Metal Embellishments Inside the Journal

This journal has 3 signatures (inserts…think chapters in a book.)  I usually die cut my own signatures with Eileen’s die, but while on a foraging trip at Tuesday Morning, I found a few Momenta Explore Journal Inserts on clearance for about $1.  I can’t die cut them that cheaply at home!  So I simply decorated the inserts with pretty papers, metal charms and ribbon.  The tutorial will go into the “how” in more detail.

Graphic 45 Bloom Eileen Hull Journal Die Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 03

Create a unified design by adding the same embellishments inside the journal.  The copper filigree leaves are flat, so they add design without a lot of bulk.

Graphic 45 Bloom Eileen Hull Journal Die Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 04

The same holds true for the butterflies.

TIP: Use a metal adhesive like Glossy Accents, Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive, or E6000 to secure metal to paper.  You can always add a dab of hot glue to the paper.  This will hold embellishments in place until the slower drying adhesive has a chance to cure.

Graphic 45 Bloom Eileen Hull Journal Die Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design Photo 05

Here’s another fun way to alter metal embellishments.  I tied this darling key through the loop on the bulldog clip.  Simple, but effective.

This video starts with a short flip through tour of the journal.  Then I’ve added a simple words/photo step out tutorial to guide you through the steps I used to create the altered embellishments, journal cover and inserts.  I hope you enjoy!

Stamperia Alice ATC Tea Box Mini Album Tutorial

Stamperia Alice ATC Tea Box Mini Album Tutorial for Frilly and Funkie Saturday Showcase

Hello, Friends!  As promised, I’m back today with this Stamperia Alice ATC Tea Box Mini Album Tutorial.  It’s being featured on the Frilly & Funkie Challenge Blog Saturday Showcase Feature today, but I thought I would share it here with you as well.

Stamperia Alice Tea Box Mini Album Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 01

I’ve already shared a sneak peek of the project with you, and you can review that HERE if you wish.   But why don’t you grab a cuppa and a snack, and we’ll dive into this photo and information heavy post.

Stamperia Alice ATC Tea Box Mini Album Tutorial: ATC Box Details and Tips

Stamperia Alice Tea Box Mini Album Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 02

Pop a fussy cut teapot up on foam dots, then add a Graphic 45 Die Cut Clock behind it to create a feeling of depth and dimension.  The clock die is a perfect fit for the box.

Stamperia Alice Tea Box Mini Album Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 03

The base is a Graphic 45 ATC Book Box, which is too cute for words! To create the tag closure, simply follow these easy steps:

  • First, score two of the ATC tags that come in the box 1 1/2″ from the domed edge.  Fold and burnish well.
  • Next, use the Graphic 45 ATC tag die to cut 4 liners for the tags (front and back for each tag).  Adhere these to the tags, then score, fold and burnish a second time.
  • Now center and adhere the tags to the box lid and bottom.  See?  I told you it was easy!

 

Stamperia Alice Tea Box Mini Album Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 04

I’ve added a spoon from my collection to decorate the spine.  Glossy Accents works really well for this.  To make the bun feet, follow these simple steps:

  • First, adhere two 1″ wooden bingo chips together.
  • Next, wrap the outside edge with 1/2″ Scor-Tape.
  • Then, cut a  5/8″ strip of designer paper from scraps and wrap it around the Scor-Tape.  Done!

Stamperia Alice Tea Box Mini Album Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 05

Because you have to fit the ATC Mini Album inside the box, you will have to keep the elements fairly flat so that the lid will close. So I fussy cut and layered a few simple elements from the collection onto the front, then tied the bow.  Easy peasy.

Stamperia Alice ATC Tea Box Mini Album Tutorial: The ATC Mini Album

Stamperia Alice Tea Box Mini Album Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 06

The 2 3/4″ x 3 5/8″ mini album is slightly larger than regulation ATC size, but close enough for me.  You will learn how to custom build it to fit inside the G45 ATC box.

 

Stamperia Alice Tea Box Mini Album Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 07

Wrap burlap around the spine. This not only looks great, but it helps to strengthen the integrity of the spine.  Then attach ribbon with 1/2″ Scor-Tape to serve as a closure mechanism.

Stamperia Alice ATC Tea Box Mini Album Tutorial: Interactive Features

 

Stamperia Alice Tea Box Mini Album Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 09

The trick to creating a small album with 12×12 papers is making things fit.  To solve this, I scored border pieces like this 12″ strip then accordion folded to  make it fit.

Stamperia Alice Tea Box Mini Album Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 10

On the reverse side, I added sentiment tea bag tags that I’ve been saving.

Stamperia Alice Tea Box Mini Album Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 11

The album is made up of (3) 2 1/2″ x 3 5/8″ page units.  Each page unit is actually 4 separate pages with flap features or turn pages and a pocket.  I tucked a tea bag into the pocket of each page unit.

Stamperia Alice Tea Box Mini Album Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 12

The left hand page is a 2 1/4″ wide strip of designer paper from the collection.  It is nearly three times the height of the page.  In order to use it, I scored it into 3 sections, cut tab corners, added magnets and folded to create a little folio to hold ATC cards.   The page on the right has a fun turn tab feature.

Stamperia Alice Tea Box Mini Album Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 13

Belly Bands are a quick and easy way to add interest to an album.  Just score 1/2″ flaps on each side of a scrap piece of paper, then tuck tags from the paper collection behind it.    The right hand page is actually a bookmark that I turned into a fold down page.

Stamperia Alice Tea Box Mini Album Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 14

How fun is that?

Stamperia Alice Tea Box Mini Album Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 15

This flap page lifts to reveal a pocket and teacup.

Stamperia Alice Tea Box Mini Album Tutorial by Kathy Clement Kathy by Design for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 16

This fussy cut teapot is scored in half.  Then I glued the right hand half to the page, folded it, and added adhesive to the left hand side.  Close the page, and voila!  It’s perfectly set!
