Old Jewelry

Inspiration - Gatherings Old Jewelry I like to create my own ephemera as often as I can instead of buying pre-made items. My Pinterest board  Pretty Little Paper Crafts is filled with many random things, many of them not made with paper. That’s because when I see something with a wow factor my first thought is how can I translate that using paper. When I succeed I often find a new paper project that will keep me stocked up on ephemera and bonus…. more ideas usually flow.    These paper jewelry pieces were inspired by wearable art jewelry pieces or faux...

One Sheet Wonder

One Sheet Wonder Travel Book I’m finally back, feeling much better and have begun another autumn travel book as we’ll probably take a day trip or two to enjoy the beautiful fall scenery. I saw this project from pinkstrawberryz and decided to modify it for myself. Her gorgeous mini album was made with 6×6″ paper packs but I made mine with one sheet of 12×12″.  I added a signature and it has some re-use items, a salvaged greeting card front for a card in the center pocket. It also has a technique I wanted to try to mimic the look of letterpress...

Make Your Own Ephemera Webster’s Dictionary defines ephemera as something of no lasting significance.

The photo below inspired me to try to create a paper fan as an ephemera piece and it brought back a memory of a fan necklace charm that I still have that is almost...

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...

Loaded Tag

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...
