Re-purpose, Recycle And Re-use

House Cleaning I think 80% of paper crafting involves house cleaning of some sort and these combined posts and projects have been no exception. These embellishments actually began with the hope that I could quickly make some paper embellishments that resembled polymer clay charms as shown in a previous post. It was almost an epic fail aside from the frames but I didn’t want to throw all that work away so I came up with these little pieces.   I didn’t think too much of it but since I am way behind on my intended group participation I took a few...

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...

ATC Cards

I love Graphic45 and Stamperia paper and a few ATC cards and pocket letters inspired me to create some of my own. It’s a challenge to create on such a small size (2.5″x3.5″ ATC card) and usually I would work with surprise cuts but for these I just printed a few sheets from my Clockworks Digital Paper Collection at 50% and then chose the part of the sheet that I wanted, in this case the music sheet covers. Sometimes I create mini mood journals but almost always I start with my extensive Pinterest boards for inspiration, this one Pretty Little Paper Crafts gets filled...

Collage Cards

Theme Cards I’ve been toying with the idea of collage cards for quite a while. I kind of missed the idea of non-fussiness when it comes to card making and had a bunch of little pieces of ephemera that I wanted to use.  I also purchased a new paper stack that is completely out of my comfort zone with barely a vintage tone so before I create more paper scraps I wanted to use what I already have. These cards are made from my pre-cut paper stack only this time I decided to do a series. I think I will...

More Pretty Little Tags Without A Punch Or Die

A Quick Little Tag As I was coming up with shape designs for the last post on tag making without a tag paper punch or die I quickly whipped up these little tags. It’s simply a square with only two edges rounded from a corner round punch and a topper created with a circle die and a standard paper punch. If you need a gift tag in a hurry but want it to be a little special this will do. I think the design would be especially nice at Christmas as it resembles an ornament. It’s also a great way to use...
