Simple Bind Mini Board Book – Collage Book

Just For Fun I hope everyone is enjoying the last months of summer. I have been out and about spending time with my family and taking a few little trips here and there and I’ve attended my very first Arts & Crafts Fair. I don’t know what I was expecting but it exceeded my expectations as far as craftsmanship and while I didn’t see the paper crafts I was expecting it was a lot of fun.  This week I have combined a few simple projects just for fun and one is really just an idea from Ceri The Crafter and that is...

Bookmark Corner I make corner bookmarks all the time as they are so versatile for pages and embellishment spots. In this instance I made one specifically to make a loaded tag and embellished it to the hilt being careful to highlight the beautiful flowers on my paper. I love this paper collection as even with surprise cuts I can still retain a focal point and use just one sheet to make many items. The corner bookmark is glued on the back for extra security but they will stay snugly on a journal page corner without glue. Including a tutorial from...

Hidden Paper Clip - Bobbi Pin Brooches I have a previous post on making these faux junk journal brooches by using a hidden paper clip and I didn’t like the bulk the paper clip and extra layers of paper were adding so I came up with a new idea using bobbi pins.

Hidden Paperclip Brooches

Necessity Is the mother of invention I couldn’t find a clip on earring that was suitable enough for a closure for one of my journals so I decided to try making a closure of my own fashioned after a brooch. I chose some women’s flower faces from Nostalgic Greetings. I wasn’t quite sure what I was going to do with these images but they were perfect for this project. These are just circle hidden paper clips with some fake jewels and sequins glued on to them. I did these with 4 layers but I don’t think it was necessary so 3...

New Mini Journal This journal evolved from another card project as shown here. I was going to keep it the size shown and make a mini journal but when I chose this Tim Holtz paper and teamed it up with another paper pack I suddenly realized I could at long last try something I have wanted to attempt for quite a while and that was a scrap paper dress, inspiration below.  I have often thought about what I could do with this large figure of a women in this particular very popular paper pack from Hobby Lobby but have never used...
