Crafty Crush: Eileen Hull Notebook Die

Crafty Crush: Eileen Hull Notebook Die for Frilly and Funkie

Hello, Friends!  Have you had a chance to play with the new Eileen Hull Notebook Die?  I have a serious crafty crush on it.  I’ll tell you all about it in a moment, but first let me welcome you to the “I Love It Because…” challenge over on the Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog.  Our lovely hostess, the marvelous Jenny Marples, has this to say about the theme:

I love it because…
How often do you create something just for you that makes your heart sing? Doesn’t it feel great when you do! My challenge to you is to make a vintage or shabby chic piece of art, be it a journal page, a tag, a card, a home decor project etc, that fills you with happiness and makes you smile – don’t forget to tell us why you love it so much.
Stamperia Spring Botanic + Eileen Hull Notebook Die = Beautiful

If you are not familiar with the new Eileen Hull Notebook Die by Sizzix, let me be the first to introduce you.  This genius little die cuts a 3 1/2″ x 5″ notebook from mat board, fabric, leather, or chipboard with one pass through your die cutting machine.

At the same time as it cuts the chosen material, it also creases an area that becomes the spine.  This is book binding at it’s easiest and most basic.  So if you’ve ever wanted to make your own little books, this is a great way to get started.

Eileen Hull Notebook Die: I Love it Because
  • Ease of Use
  • Size: It fits inside her cleverly designed Treasure Box
  • Versatility: You can design this album in any number of ways.  You can find more examples of how I’ve used this clever die HERE and HERE.
  • Quick to make: I can knock out one of these lovely little notebooks in a couple of hours.  Then I have the perfect little gift to present, and people are always thrilled to receive it.

How could you not love this gorgeous paper?  The colors are my favorites, and the images are just dreamy.  And look at that wee snail?  I love him!

Stamperia builds their collections so that the mixed media effects I love so much are incorporated into the design.  I can add stenciling and texture on top of that if I desire to do so.  Or, I can simply cut apart the bits and pieces, dress them up with a little ribbon and a charm and be all set.

For this little album, I printed out a selection of my favorite Spring poems and quotes.  I wanted a little lap book that could be perused at leisure, or used for home decor.

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.

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.

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?

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!

Tissue Wrapped Springtime Folio

Tissue Wrapped Springtime Folio with Stamperia Lilac and Flower Alphabet

Hello, Friends!  Today I have a sweet Tissue Wrapped Springtime Folio to share with you.  The latest challenge over on the Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog is being hosted by my incredibly talented friend, Sara Emily.  Her challenge theme is “Pass the Tissues,Please”  and requires you to use tissue paper or rice paper in your project.  We’ll take a look at my journal in a moment, but first. let’s see what Sara has to say about this interesting challenge.

Challenge Theme: Pass the Tissues, Please!
Since we are still in ‘cold season’, I always make sure I’m stocked up on tissues in my home, in my purse and in the car. For this theme, I would like to see how you incorporate tissue paper into your vintage or shabby chic project. You can use regular tissues, tissue wrapping paper, sewing patterns or even collage paper, rice papers or tissue wrap designed especially for crafting.

Sound like fun?  I thought so!  Let’s dive in!

Finnabair Art Tissue, Stamperia Lilac, Flower Alphabet Soup

Stamperia Lilac Flower Alphabet Tissue Wrapped Journal Tim Holtz Lace Baseboard Frame Heartfelt Creations Lush Lilac by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 01

For me, every project idea starts with designer paper.  I flipped through my stash of gorgeous Stamperia papers and could not choose between Lilac and Flower Alphabet.  So I used them both in the creation of this 5″ x 7″ wrap style folio.   The base is made by scoring a 7″ x 18″ piece of 18 pt. Grocery Bag Cardstock into three 5″ panels with a quarter inch spine between.  I chose to work with this because of its strength and ability to stand up to mixed media treatments.

NOTE: If I had it to do over again, I would  have scored 3/4″ spines to allow the folio to close with ease.  This one is as snug as your grandpa’s belt after Thanksgiving dinner.

TIP: You can create your own oversized cardstock by joining two panels of Dina Wakely Media Kraft Cardstock with Scor-Tape.

My tissue paper choice is this Finnabair Art Alchemy Musica paper from Prima.  The spring greens and lilac shades are a perfect color match for the two Stamperia collections.

Tissue Wrapped Springtime Folio: The Process

Stamperia Lilac Flower Alphabet Tissue Wrapped Journal Tim Holtz Lace Baseboard Frame Heartfelt Creations Lush Lilac by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 02

Here’s how I wrapped the folio with the tissue.  It’s a pretty simple process.

  • First, open a sheet of the Finnabair tissue and lay it face down on your work surface.
  • Next, cover the face of the folio base with Distress Collage medium.  You will need to work quickly as this medium is fast drying.
  • Now, center the folio base face down over the tissue paper, keeping it as straight as you can. Gently brayer over the paper to seal it to the base.
  • At this point, I folded the tissue paper over the interior of the folio to see how much I should trim away.  I wanted it to completely cover the folio interior without excessive overlap.
  • Next, cut “v” slits in the 4 corners of the tissue paper to make it easier to wrap and fold it over the folio interior.  This is done the same way as you would if you were wrapping a mini album cover with paper.
  • Now, brush the inside of the folio base with a good layer of Distress collage medium, then fold the tissue paper to the inside of the folio.  You will have overlap, and that is fine.  Just keep adding Distress Collage Medium until all the edges are sealed.
  • Finally, use a brayer to gently seal the tissue paper to the folio surface.  Carefully fold along the score lines and then walk away and let everything dry.

TIP: Dry time is essential!  Damp tissue paper tears.

Tissue Wrapped Springtime Folio: Rice Paper Overlay

I cut a medallion from some Stamperia Rice Paper that I had in my stash, and layered that over the folio front.  Then I brayered  and spattered small amounts of Distress paint to create a more aged appearance.  Next I applied two coats of clear Gesso.  After this, I applied Distress Oxide Inks through a Stamperia stencil, followed by Distress Opaque Crackle Texture.  The crackle medium picks up color from the Oxide Ink and the end result is so pretty.

Tissue Wrapped Springtime Folio: The Frame and Flowers

I am loving the new Tim Holtz Lace Baseboard Frames!  They alter beautifully!

TIP: Use scraps of rice paper to decorate the frame.

To alter the frame, I brushed it with Oxide Inks, spattered with Distress Paints and misted with Mica Spray.   The image is from the Flower Alphabet Collection.  I pulled out some Heartfelt Creations Lilac stamps and dies to make the flowers and leaves.  Vintage lace and buttons from my stash add the perfect finishing touch.

I had such a good time adding flips and pockets and tuck spots to this sweet little lap book.

And what could be sweeter than a little honey stick, chocolate, stitched bookmark and itty bitty silver spoon to go with it?

Graphic 45 Proper Gentleman Card Folio

Graphic 45 Proper Gentleman Card Folio for Frilly & Funkie “How Do I Love Thee?” Challenge

Hello, Friends!  Today I have a really neat masculine project to share with you. I created this Graphic 45 A Proper Gentleman Card Folio for the latest challenge over on the Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog. Hosted  by the amazing Sara Emily, the challenge theme is “Let Me Count the Ways”  Before I share my project with you, let’s see what this challenge is all about:

 Challenge Theme: Let Me Count the Ways
Since it’s just a day away from Valentine’s Day, the opening line of Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s famous love poem “Let Me Count the Ways” (Sonnet 43) comes to mind. “How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.” For this theme, I would like to see your vintage or shabby chic project that includes three of something. This could be three colors, three words, 3 stamps (you get the idea); just be sure to tell us what those three elements are.

And real quick…let me apologize right off the bat!  I have 3 separate postings today. How ironic is that?   This almost never happens, but sometimes there’s just no way to avoid it.  I’m so sorry for stuffing your inbox today.

Proper Gentleman Card Folio: A Party of Three

Graphic 45 A Proper Gentleman Card Folio by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 01 Even though I don’t make them very often, I love making masculine cards.  I’ve been wanting to dig into the Graphic 45 A Proper Gentleman DCE for quite a while.  This fun challenge theme was the perfect excuse.  This is a 5″ x 6 3/4″ card folio with a 1/2″ top fold spine.  Here’s how I used threes on the card front:

  • Paper: 3 layers:  kraft card base, the plaid pattern and the sepia frame.
  • Machine stitching around the outer, middle and inside perimeter of the card frame
  • Three clocks
  • Gears: Two trios of gears

Graphic 45 A Proper Gentleman Card Folio by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 02

TIP: Fussy cut the clock border and leave the inside edge open.  Tuck the chipboard frame and element behind the open edge.  This creates a wonderful feeling of dimension.

Proper Gentleman Card Folio: A Peek Inside

Graphic 45 A Proper Gentleman Card Folio by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 03

The party continues on the inside of this card.  You’ll find 3’s here:

  • Pockets
  • ATC Tags
  • Paper Dolls
  • Buttons (in the border design)
  • Little Gifts…the first of which is the Ghiradelli Chocolate tucked into the upper pocket

Graphic 45 A Proper Gentleman Card Folio by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 04

Tim Holtz Paper Dolls and Clippings Stickers, Quote Chips, and Small Talk Stickers add so much to the folio design.  I just love this dapper gent in his bowler hat!

Graphic 45 A Proper Gentleman Card Folio by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 05

The side pocket is sized perfectly to hold these 3  Graphic 45 ATC tags.

Graphic 45 A Proper Gentleman Card Folio by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 06

Turn the flap to find another pocket…with the second  little gift tucked inside.

Graphic 45 A Proper Gentleman Card Folio by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 07

I dug this Graphic 45 Inspire, Create, Imagine Square Tag out of my stash, then used the matching Square Tag Die to cover the back side.  This makes the laser cut words pop.  Then I created a little 2 3/4″ x 4 1/4″ gift card wallet.

Graphic 45 A Proper Gentleman Card Folio by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 09

Room for a note…and a gift card/cash pocket.

Graphic 45 A Proper Gentleman Card Folio by Kathy Clement for The Funkie Junkie Boutique Photo 10Clean up the scraps on your table!  This bookmark only took about 5 minutes to make thanks to the 12×12 Sticker Elements that come with the Proper Gentleman DCE.  Turn a border scrap into a tuck spot by adhering just the side of it to the back side of the flip page.  Then tuck the tag in place, and that’s gift #3!

Let Me Count the Ways: Now it’s YOUR turn!

I hope you will join in on this fun challenge.  To do so, simply create your own vintage or shabby chic project where  you use 3 of something.  Then link it up over on the Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog before 11:55PM EST on Tuesday, February 26th.

The winner will earn the chance of a Guest Designer spot  at Frilly and Funkie, and everyone who enters and follows the rules will go into the draw for the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique. In addition, the Design Team will select three further outstanding entries and those creators will receive a Top Pick badge to display on their blogs!
