Paper Doll Art Journal Page

 


Greetings! Today I am excited to share this art journal page I created.  I am trying really hard to create at least one page a month.  Looking back at the page, I see that I must have been thinking about climbing this uphill battle of life of a working mom and wife  in a currently very high stress job who loves to create but has trouble finding the time while trying not to slip back down the slope of life.  So let's get started.  

To recreate this Project you will need:

Blank Page Muse Supplies

 Newsprint Paper Doll Large Art Rubber Stamp 

I am my own woman Sentiment Art Rubber Stamp

Photobooth Woman Portrait Photo Style Art Rubber Stamp

Alphabet Letter Set Sheet Art Rubber Stamp by Terri Sproul

Other Supplies

 Kraft, brown and Cream Card Stock, wide and thin width lace, jute, brown archival ink


Start by stamping your  Newsprint Paper Doll Large Art Rubber Stamp I am my own woman Sentiment Art Rubber Stamp and Photobooth Woman Portrait Photo Style Art Rubber Stamp Images onto cream card stock with brown archival ink.  Note: I did not use the male photobooth image. 

 




Stamp L I F E using your Alphabet Letter Set Sheet Art Rubber Stamp by Terri Sproul across the bottom of your art page. 

Adhere wide width lace along the left edge of your journal page. 
Create "tightrpoe" by adhering thin width lace going uphill across the page. 
Tie jute around your art journal page as shown. 
Cut 
Photobooth Woman Portrait Photo Style Art Rubber Stamp image and mat onto brown card stock. Adhere to wide lace are as shown. 
Detail cut your 
Newsprint Paper Doll Large Art Rubber Stamp  and assemble on your page. 

Finish your art page by cutting your I am my own woman Sentiment Art Rubber Stamped image and matting on brown card stock.  Adhere to your page. 




 

I hope you are inspired to get creative with your Blank Page Muse Stamps.

Celebration Card in Pink

 


      This month the ScraPerfect Team was challenged to create projects with the theme #CelebratewithScraPerfect.  I choose to create this beautiful card in pink that would be perfect to celebrate a wedding or a bridal shower or even a new baby girl! To recreate this card you will need

ScraPerfect Supplies

ScraPerfect’s Best Glue Ever with No Clog Writing Cap

ScraPerfect’s Embellie Gellie

 

Other Supplies

Patterned paper, card stock, paper doily, ribbon, Congrats die cut, gatefold card base


Start by die cutting your sentiment and a shadow. Look at how thin that die cut sentiment is!   

Useyour ScraPerfect’s Embellie Gellie to pick up and hold  your die cut. 

ScraPerfect’s Best Glue Ever with No Clog Writing Cap makes is super easy to add just the right amount of adhesive to your die cut. ScraPerfect’s Embellie Gellie  makes hold and proper placement of your die cut super easy. 

Set your sentiment aside for now while we work on the card. 

Cut your card stock slightly smaller than your card base for card front.  Cut patterned paper slightly smaller than card stock. Adhere doily (cut in half) to each side of the card front panels. Adhere to card front  LEAVING  a small gap in adhesive under the center middle of both panels. (this is where we will add ribbon) 

Assemble inside of card matting patterned paper onto card stock. 
Cut away inside of a paper doily. 

Using ScraPerfect’s Best Glue Ever with No Clog Writing Cap add adhesive to your doily. I love that ScraPerfect’s Best Glue Ever with No Clog Writing Capis PERFECT for adhering heavy card stock and delicate doilies!
Adhere doily to center of card. Adhere this panel to the inside of your card. 

Adhere your assembled die cut sentiment. 




Add your ScraPerfect’s Best Glue Ever with No Clog Writing Cap under front panels and insert ribbon to finish off your card. 



I hope you are inspired to get creative with your ScraPerfect Supplies!

Flower Mixed Media Canvas

 

 

Summer Greeting!  Today I am super excited to share this "Freedom Canvas" I created using some of my new dies and supplies from DiesRUs.  So many times I forget to create something besides greeting cards!  But dies are so versatile and can be used in your mixed media projects too!  So let me show you how I created this canvas. 

To recreate this project you will need :

Dies R Us Supplies

Scrap Man Collage Honeycomb Die

Scrapman Trellis Die

Elizabeth Craft Design Small Butterfly Die

Karen Burniston Flowers & Bee Die set

Distress Oxide Inks - Broken China, Faded Jeans

Finnabair - Cling Stamp - Don't Forget To Fly

Nuvo Crystal Drops - Red


Other Supplies 

5x7 inch canvas, card stock, ScraPerfect's Best Glue Ever™ with ScraPerfect's No-Clog Writing Cap™, water, Archival Ink, Stencil brush to apply ink


So let's get started with our project!

Start your canvas by applying your Distress Oxide ink onto the canvas.  


Keep blending and adding ink until you are satisfied with your canvas. 

Sprinkle water drops onto your canvas and let dry. 

Die cut Scrap Man Collage Honeycomb Die from white card stock. 

Using your Scrapman Trellis Die, cut 2 trellis from black card stock. 

Die Cut your Butterfly using  the Elizabeth Craft Design Small Butterfly Die.  I choose a purple embossed card stock for the butterfly wings.  



Adhere your die cut honeycomb to your canvas. 

Taking your 2 die cut trellises, flip one so that it is facing the opposite direction. Adhere together along the trellis line. 
 Adhere trellises together along the trellis line to create a larger die cut. 

Adhere larger Trellis die cut to your canvas. 


Using your Finnabair - Cling Stamp - Don't Forget To Fly stamp "Freedom Stamp onto Bottom left side of canvas with archival ink. 
Using your Karen Burniston Flowers & Bee Die set, die cut leaf stems from varying colors of green card stock. 

Adhere these leaf stems to your canvas. 
Die cut flowers from the Karen Burniston Flowers & Bee Die set.  Note I again used an embossed card stock for extra texture. 


Adhere the center of your flowers to your canvas. Lift the edges of your flowers to add more dimension to your canvas. 

You can see the extra dimension this gives to your flowers. 

Add Nuvo Crystal Drops - Red to the centers of all your flowers. 
Gently Fold your die cut butterfly along the body and adhere  to your canvas. Just look at how the butterfly pops off the page!

 
Here is a final look at the finished project. I hope you are inspired to get creative with your die cuts.
