Pumpkin Season Recipe Journal

Pumpkin Season Eileen Hull Recipe Journal For Frilly and Funkie Challenge

Hello, Friends! One of the things I love the most about fall is that I get to pull out all my fabulous pumpkin recipes…if I can find them!  To remedy that situation, I’ve created this Pumpkin Season Recipe Journal with Eileen Hull’s HeARTfelt Journal Die by Sizzix.  It’s just perfect for the latest challenge over on the Frilly and Funkie Blog, where I get to serve as the hostess this month.

Challenge Theme: To Everything There is a Season

Fall is one of the most beautiful seasons of the year.  Brilliant leaves, fall flowers,  crisp blue skies, and migrating geese fill the season with a sense of wonder and anticipation  You’re invited to create a vintage or shabby chic project that captures the beauty of fall.  You can make a card, a tag, share a journal entry or any kind of project you desire. Just be sure to create it in the shabby chic or vintage style and be sure to use fall (not Halloween) images and colors.

Pumpkin Season Recipe Journal with Prima Amber Moon Collection

Pumpkin Season Recipe Journal Amber Moon by Kathy Clement Product by Prima Photo 1

Before putting the journal together, I first inked all the edges with a combination of Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo Distress Inks.  Then I cut out my covers from the A4 Amber Moon papers.  All the edges were inked and distressed.  I also stitched around the front cover to add a little more texture.

When all the cover pieces were glued in place, I put the journal together using the directions that come with the die,

Next, I added a contrasting strip of paper to the spine.  This was heavily inked, crumpled and distressed before gluing in place.  Then I added the ribbon for the closure, and punched a hole for my metal charms.

I found these mustard seeds in my spice cabinet, and thought they’d look great mixed in with all these pretty Prima blooms.

To add extra texture, stitch your sentiment panel onto burlap.

Pumpkin Season Recipe Journal:  A Peek Inside

Decorating the inside of this pumpkin recipe journal was really fun.   I created 3 signatures, or inserts, for the journal.  To change things up a bit, I got a little inventive with the creases and folds.  You’ll see the results in the video below.

Lots of tags and pockets, of course!  You know I love my tags and pockets.

Tuck spots and ephemera, too!  Flipping through this journal is a real adventure.  You never know what you’ll find when you turn the page.

Here’s a sweet slash pocket filled with another signature.  I had not planned on doing this, but when my album got too chubby, I had to improvise.  (Pumpkin recipes have a habit of expanding the waistline, after all.)

I turned one of Tammy Tutterow’s mini pocket envelopes into a shaker element.  Isn’t it too, too cute?

Would you like to see more?  Then I hope you’ll enjoy this 10 minute video tour!

Authentique Pastime Passport Style Mini Album

Take a Road Trip with Authetique Pastime Passport Style Mini Album

Hello, Friends!  Aaaah, Summertime!  The perfect time to hit the road, go adventuring, and make lasting memories!  Who wants to take a road trip with me today as we explore a brand new collection from Authentique Paper?  This Pastime Passport Style Mini Album is the perfect travel companion, loaded with fun interactive features, retro style images and ready for adventure.  Take a peek:

Authentique Pastime Passport Style Mini Album by Kathy Clement Photo 1

This is the cutest, chunkiest little mini album!  Authentique’s Pastime Collection  is filled to the brim with  retro images like Polaroid cameras, cute little campers, vintage billboards, tickets receipts and more. The Pastime 6×6 Paper Bundle is just the right size for this petite 3.5″ x 5″ x 2″ mini album. I also used fussy cut images, patterns, Detail Stickers and Petite Diction Stickers from the 12″ x 12″ Collection Kit.

Authentique Pastime Passport Style Mini Album by Kathy Clement Photo 2Eileen Hull’s Passport Book Die by Sizzix is a perfect playmate for this paper collection.  After die cutting covers, spine and inner pages, I went to work on decorating the album.  The album contains 3 separate signatures (inserts) bound with elastic.  Each signature holds 12 pages that you cut out with the die.

Authentique Pastime Passport Style Mini Album by Kathy Clement Photo 3Here’s a peek a the album spine.  You can see the elastic binding strips threaded through the holes.  I added some vintage travel charms and beads just for fun.  Don’t you love this paper?

Authentique Pastime Passport Style Mini Album Video Tour on YouTube

This album is bursting with interactive elements like pockets, tags, flip pages, waterfall features, fold out pages and more.  I find the easiest way to share a project like this is with a YouTube video tour.  I share a lot in this video about the process for making the album as well as tips and tricks that you can use in your own crafty adventures.

 

Authentique Pastime Passport Style Mini Album: A few detail shots

Authentique Pastime Passport Style Mini Album by Kathy Clement Photo 4

Pockets add so much to a mini album design.  This side pocket is decorated with one of the fun Details Stickers from the 12×12 Collection Kit.  I matted it on kraft cardstock to make it pop against that cute patterned paper in the background.  Photo mounts held together with a decorative belly band fill the side pocket.  You can place 8 photos here.  Isn’t that amazing?The cover page of the first signature is simply decorated with another gorgeous Detail Sticker.

Authentique Pastime Passport Style Mini Album by Kathy Clement Photo 5

I kept the embellishments in this album very simple.  Because it is small, I didn’t want the pages to be too busy.  Petite Diction stickers give you the opportunity to create your own captions, which is lots of fun.  Mat stickers on kraft cardstock, then glue just the bottom edge so that you can tuck your photo behind as I did on this flip page.

Turn fussy cut images into mini journaling spots or photo albums.  To do this, I simply fold paper in half and then add my image.  This journal spot also serves as a turn tab for the fold out page.

Make Your Own Embellishments!

Authentique Pastime Passport Style Mini Album by Kathy Clement Photo 6

Throughout the album, I’ve used stickers to make my own embellishments. This tiny Polaroid sticker looks so cute hanging from the paperclip that holds this journal page in place.  I simply matted the sticker on folded cardstock, trimmed out the tails, then looped it over the paper clip.  It looks chic and trendy even though it’s cheap and easy!  LOL

Use Your Stash!

Authentique Pastime Passport Style Mini Album by Kathy Clement Photo 7

Do you keep ephemera items like small paper bags and such?  An album like this is the perfect place to use these items from your stash!  I found a tiny paper bag that was the perfect size for this album,  covered it with paper, then added a tag.  Again, a quick and affordable embellishment that looks great on the page.

Creative Uses for Scraps in Your Authentique Pastime Passport Style Mini Album

Authentique Pastime Passport Style Mini Album by Kathy Clement Photo 8

We all have scraps, right?  And they end up in a bin and never get used, which is such a waste. When you have  gorgeous papers like these, you want to utilize every scrap.  Therefore,  I have been training myself to look for creative ways to use them in my projects.  This decorative belly band is made with a piece of paper I’d trimmed off.  Backed with kraft cardstock (also a scrap) it creates a stylish way to tuck in a tag.  And let’s talk about the tag for a moment: its also decorated with a scrap of paper.

Authentique Pastime Passport Style Mini Album by Kathy Clement Photo 9

Punch a decorative edge on a scrap and use it as a border as I did here.  It takes just a few seconds to do, but adds a designer look to a page.  I also used a fussy cut scrap as a layering piece behind this cute hang tag made with a sticker from the collection.  Scraps are our friends, people!  Invite them to the party!

Make the Most of Your Page With Waterfall Features

Authentique Pastime Passport Style Mini Album by Kathy Clement Photo 10

I confess a love for waterfall features. They are interactive and fun.  Not only that, you can store a ton of photos on a waterfall page.  This tiny 3.25″ x 4.25″ page can hold SIX 3.4 photos!  Here’s how to make your own waterfall element on a page:

  • First, measure the page to determine the width and length of each waterfall element.  You want the width of each waterfall page to be slightly smaller than the width of the album page.
  • Next, cut rectangles of paper.  Remember to add 1/2″ more to the length of each rectangle so you can score a flap.  Each of these rectangles measures 3″ x 4″.
  • Then, score a 1/2″ flap on the short side of each rectangle.  This is the  mechanism that will attach to the base page. Fold the flap to the back side of each rectangle.
  • Now, ink the edges and shape with corner punches if desired.
  • Place adhesive of your choice on the back side of each flap.  Beginning with the first flap, line the scored edge up with the top of your base page.  Make sure it is straight.  Press to adhere.
  • Next, lift the flap of the first waterfall. Align the scored edge of the next flap up with the bottom edge of the first flap and adhere, being sure to keep everything straight.
  • Continue until you’ve added all the flaps.
Authentique Pastime Passport Style Mini Album: The Grand Finale

Authentique Pastime Passport Style Mini Album by Kathy Clement Photo 11

The final page of this album is so much fun.  I created a micro journaling spot with one of the tiny stickers from the Details sheet.  Then I created a tuck spot with a fussy cut image from the 6×6 bundle.  The inside cover has a pocket with a handy little notepad that I created from designer paper and chipboard.

Authentique Pastime Passport Style Mini Album by Kathy Clement Photo 12

I love this quote: “Life is a grand adventure: go live it!”  What a perfect way to end this post!

Welcome Wee One Baby Girl Folio

                               Welcome Wee One Baby Girl Folio for Friday Focus at Frilly and Funkie                                     Tammy Tutterow Designs Creative Team Friday

Hello, Friends!  What an exciting day it is here on the blog!  It’s time for another Friday Focus at the Frilly and Funkie Blog.  And it’s also time for another Tammy Tutterow Designs Creative Team Friday.  Oh, happy day!  The Friday Focus at Frilly and Funkie is all about Tammy Tutterow Stamps and Dies, so it all works out well.  I have the sweetest Welcome Wee One Baby Girl Folio to share with you, so let’s get this party started!

This Welcome Wee One Baby Girl Folio has so many moving parts that I thought it would be wise to create a YouTube Video Tour to explain them all.

Welcome Wee One Baby Girl Folio

Welcome Wee One Baby Girl Folio by Kathy Clement Product by Tammy Tutterow Designs Photo 1

This is one of my “hybrid” card/mini album creations.  It measures 5.5″ x 7.5″ with a 1/2″ spine so I can tuck in all sorts of goodies on the inside.  I’ve used Graphic 45 Baby to Bride Deluxe Collector Edition papers and a huge pile of Tammy’s wonderful stamps and dies to make this project.

Welcome Wee One Stamp/Die Combo and Dear Ruby Background Stamp

Welcome Wee One Baby Girl Folio by Kathy Clement Product by Tammy Tutterow Designs Photo 2

I don’t think of myself as a great stamper/colorer.  But Tammy’s designs are so easy to color that I find myself enjoying the process more and more all the time.  I used her Dear Ruby background stamp on the pink gingham panel of this card.  It adds the perfect touch of vintage texture to the background.

Welcome Wee One Baby Girl Folio by Kathy Clement Product by Tammy Tutterow Designs Photo 4

And how sweet is this this sentiment?  First I stamped it directly onto my patterned paper.  Then, once the ink had dried, I colored it in with Prismacolor pencils.  The best part about this stamp set is that it comes with a matching die to cut the sentiment out.  No fussy cutting!  How great is that?  The finishing touch was adding Glossy Accents to the words, the wee hearts and the peas in those darling pea pods.

Welcome Wee One Folio: Shortie Tabs as Banner Flags

Welcome Wee One Baby Girl Folio by Kathy Clement Product by Tammy Tutterow Designs Photo 5

This pretty little banner was a cinch to make with Tammy’s Shortie Tabs die.  The die set contains 8 shortie tabs, and I love the various shapes.  Here’s how I put this banner together:

  1. Die cut the banner shapes from patterned paper.  Shortie tabs are all double ended with a score line in the middle, which I find to be very handy.
  2. Fold each Shortie Tab on the score line.
  3. Ink the edges with Tea Dye Distress ink.
  4. Cut a length of natural jute to match the width of your card.  Tie a knot on either end.
  5. Fold each Shortie Tab over the jute string.  I used a little bit of 1/8″ Scor-Tape on the inside of each tab to hold it in place.
  6. Glue the knotted ends of the jute to the card.
Welcome Wee One Folio:  Shabby Posies and Pom Pom Posies Dies

Welcome Wee One Baby Girl Folio by Kathy Clement Product by Tammy Tutterow Designs Photo 6

I am so in love with Tammy’s flower dies!  For the Wee One Folio I selected the two smallest petal layers from Shabby Posies and die cut a pile them from my patterned paper. But I’ve also die cut them from felt, burlap, crinoline, fabric and inked up cardstock.  Here’s how I made the flowers:

  1. Die cut from patterned paper.
  2. Ink edges with Tea Dye Distress Ink.
  3. Shape with a ball stylus on a foam mat.
  4. Hot glue the layers together.  Because I wanted these Shabby Posies to be more tightly closed, I used a double foam mat and really pressed down into the center.  This draws the petals closer together.
  5. Spritz with Tattered Angels Vintage Pink Glimmer Mist.
  6. Randomly “draw” on the petals with Art Glitter Dries Clear Adhesive.
  7. Sprinkle with Prills.
  8. Die cut the leaves from Pom Pom Posies onto patterned paper.
  9. Ink the edges.
  10. Shape and glue beneath the flowers.

Welcome Wee One Baby Girl Folio by Kathy Clement Product by Tammy Tutterow Designs Photo 7

Welcome Wee One Folio: Paper Bag Pocket

Welcome Wee One Baby Girl Folio by Kathy Clement Product by Tammy Tutterow Designs Photo 8

Because I scored a 1/2″ spine into this 5.5″ x 7.5″ top fold card base, I can fill the inside up with lots of paper pretties!

Welcome Wee One Baby Girl Folio by Kathy Clement Product by Tammy Tutterow Designs Photo 9

I love to add pockets to my cards.  To change things up a bit, I used Tammy’s Paper Bag Pocket Die to create a spot to tuck this Mini Tag Book.  I love the boutique look of this pocket cut from the same designer paper.

Welcome Wee One Folio:  The Mini Tag Book

If you follow my blog, then I know you are familiar with this darling little tag book because I use it all the time.  It’s one of my favorite “Tammy Toys.”

Welcome Wee One Folio: Shortie Tags Die

Welcome Wee One Baby Girl Folio by Kathy Clement Product by Tammy Tutterow Designs Photo 11Tags are another item that I love to include in my designs. I die cut this cute tag directly from the patterned paper, then dressed it up with some fancy borders and ribbon.  Tammy’s Shortie Tags die comes with 6 pretty shaped edges that you can layer onto the bottom of the tag.

Welcome Wee One Baby Girl Folio by Kathy Clement Product by Tammy Tutterow Designs Photo 12I had a strip of matting cardstock left on my desk, so I turned it into this simple tri-fold folio/gift card holder.  It’s held shut with a darling little belly band.  So cute!

Friday Focus: Tammy Tutterow Stamps and Dies at 15% Savings

Now, here’s the really good news.  For the next two weeks, The Funkie Junkie Boutique is offering an additional 15% off all Tammy Tutterow Designs Stamps and Dies.  Combined with the regular 20% discount TFJB offers on all items in the shop, this amounts to a 35% discount! If you’ve had any of Tammy’s paper pretties on your wish list, now is the time to snap them up.  You can find the Friday Focus shopping page HERE.

I hope I’ve shared some tips and tricks that you can use in your own crafty adventures.  If so, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.

Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe Folio

This is my 2nd post of the day.  To find my project for Frilly & Funkie, please scroll down.
Goin’ Junkin” with Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe Folio

Hello, G45’ers! Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe Deluxe Collector Edition captures all the fun and adventure of a dusty old vintage shop.  I worked these gorgeous papers and eclectic images up into an interactive folio album loaded with flaps, envelopes, fold outs, folios, tags, pockets and FUN!

I can’t think of a better way to spend an afternoon than going junkin’. That’s what I call time spent venturing into thrift stores, flea markets and vintage shops in search of vintage treasures and “junk” that is just waiting to be given a new life in my crafting studio.  You never know what kind of goodies you might find: old lace, tattered ledgers, dusty bottles, tarnished spoons, ugly home decor with good bones, estate jewelry.  These items have a tendency to jump into my shopping basket when I’m not looking.  (That’s my story, and I’m sticking with it!)

Make it Easy on Yourself: Using Staples Tags in a Folio Format

Goin Junkin Olde Curiosity Shoppe Folio by Kathy Clement Product by Graphic 45 Photo 2

Make it easy on yourself! Use Kraft Staples Tags as a base as you layer your papers.  The beautiful shaped edge and metal grommet add great design features.  I used two on my cover. One is right side up and one is upside down.

Goin Junkin Olde Curiosity Shoppe Folio by Kathy Clement Product by Graphic 45 Photo 3

Olde Curiosity Shoppe Folio Video Tour On YouTube

I’ve used Staples tags throughout this funky little folio.  Inside you will find flaps, pockets, hidden pockets, mini folios and all sorts of fun surprises.  It’s just like shopping in your favorite junkin’ spot.

This is such an interactive album, that I decided to create a video tour rather than a pile of photos.  It’s so much easier to explain the various features in a video. I hope you enjoy this short YouTube video tour.

Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe Folio Designer Tips

Goin Junkin Olde Curiosity Shoppe Folio by Kathy Clement Product by Graphic 45 Photo 4

  • To create the ATC Policy Envelope fold out feature, I cut a 1” wide x 8.25” long spine from my designer paper and scored it in half. The left hand side was glued under the facing page.  Then I just glued my ATC Policy Envelopes on top of the other half.  I used my craft knife to cut a slit between the envelopes so they can be turned individually.
  • Turning a Staples Tag into a folio is as easy as 1,2,3!  For a standard tag, cut cardstock to measure 7” wide by 4.75” tall.  Score on the long side at 3.5”.  Fold, shape the corners (if desired) and glue onto the tag base.  Now you have a fun, interactive tag folio!
  • Mat images from Parlor Wall onto folded pieces of kraft or black cardstock to create little folios within your album.  This is a great way to use up leftover pieces of cardstock, and the interactive folios are loads of fun to open.
