Christmas Planner Meetup #PlanListDecorate

Today I am hosting a planner meetup for 36 planner girls. This is my last planner event of 2017, but I am so excited to see my crafty planner friends before Christmas. Here are the planner swaps I made for them.

I went with a vintage Christmas and loved how everything turned out. The sticker sheets are so adorable and I am so impressed with Cricut's Design Studio. They have made major improvements to their program.
I used a couple of images from Design Space to create the cute Christmas Deer and the Feliz Navidad stickers, so cute!

I love the vintage ladies, but this right here is my favorite! I am so thrilled how this postcard that can be used as a dashboard, journal card turned out!!

I enjoyed designing these for my planner friends, I sure hope they love them!

Planner Dashboard Shakers #planlistdecorate

Today, I am attending a local planner meetup and I am participating in their swaps. I purchased the felt Christmas tree as Hobby Lobby to make the paper clips.
I used large red paper clips and Westcott's Glue Pen to adhere them to the clips.

I then dusted off the Fuse by We R Memory Keepers to create dashboard shakers. The planner dashboard shakers are sized to fit an A5 planner or larger.

Look at these planner goodness! I'm so proud to have completed them earlier in the week and not late last night. {smile}

I added a strip of washi tape to the left side where they will get punched according to the recipients planner system. I added pattern paper to dashboard, fuse it, then added the shaker pockets, fused them and included a pack of cocoa. I then adhered the candy cane with a strip of washi tape and added the Christmas tree planner clip to the top.
I hope the planner girls enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them. Thank you for visiting.

Christmas Foiled Banner #RineaInspires

Thanksgiving is officially over, it's all about Christmas, cue the jingle bells.

Today I am sharing a festive Christmas banner using Rinea's foiled paper and 3D Rolled Stars.This is the first time creating the 3D Rolled Star Die Set. Assembling the Stars was easier than I thought. The die set comes with 3 different die sizes. I cut 1 of the large and 2 each of the smaller ones. The easy to follow instructions are including in the package.

Following the package instructions, I rolled each piece and adhered using my Glue Pen.

I assembled my banner using the doilies and the pattern paper and then added the 3D Rolled Stars.

I added a the Starstruck Foiled paper to each banner, just enough to give it a layered look.
I tied green tulle between each panel and it was complete.

Th 3D Rolled Stars be assembled in so many variations. Create ornaments, bows, embellishments etc. I simply love how they look on my banner and I hope you do too.

Thank you for visiting and happy crafting.

Thanksgiving Place Cards #RineaFoiledPaper

Thanksgiving just around the corner, it's time to start planning our tablescapes. Today, I show you how I used Rinea's Autumn Foiled Paper Variety and Ghost Ink, to create personalized Thanksgiving place cards. Supplies needed are listed at the bottom of this post.

Using a manual die cutting machine, I cut all the elements to create the box card. I stamped, and heat embossed the floral bouquets and colored them.

Next, to create the extra layer on the box card flaps, I die cut only the flaps and trimmed off the excess. I adhered the brown card stock to the back side of the flaps. It just gives it a little extra.

I used the Starstruck Marigold Orange to cut the side panels of the card box. I then cut the top decorative pieces on Glossy Mocha Brown/Gold and embossed them with a pumpkin embossing folder.

Next, I stamped several leaves with the Ghost Ink and die cut them. I also used the Alpha Stamp set to create the names, sorry for the missed photo.

I adhered all the elements to the card box inserts and tied the rope twine to the front of the card box. I also added a pumpkin for a little extra.

Here's a close up of one of the place cards I will include on my Thanksgiving tablescape.

I hope you enjoyed today's project idea. Thank you for visiting and happy crafting.

Fabric Traveler's Notebook #Westcott

Happy Friday! I'm sharing my first fabric traveler's notebook. So excited to share!
I found the perfect Nightmare Before Christmas fabric and I paired it with black stripes! Eeek!  Here's a quick look:

I used Westcott's Titanium Rotary Cutter, the best for cutting multiple layers of fabric. I used a quilting ruler to cut straight lines.  

The finished traveler's notebook measures 8.5" x 5.5". I first washed and pressed the fabric. I created a pattern so I have it for future traveler's notebooks. I used the rotary cutter to cut all of the fabric, including the fuse material.

I wasn't sure if I was going to include side pockets in the inside cover, but I had the fabric and so I included them. Before sewing them I added a lightweight interfacing for stability.

Here is my completed Jack Skellington traveler's notebook!

I'm so glad I decided on the inside pockets!

It holds 2 inserts for now.

I'm so happy how it turned out! I will be making more and will share a more detailed tutorial with complete measurements.
Thank you for visiting and enjoy your Halloween weekend!

"And since I am dead, I can take off my head
To recite Shakespearean quotations
No animal nor man can scream like I can
With the fury of my recitations"

Patchwork Halloween Card {Nightmare Before Christmas Inspired}

'Tis the season when I go around quoting Nightmare Before Christmas.
What's wrong? I thought you *liked* frog's breath. - Sally

Welcome to Day 4 of our partnership with Rinea! I was inspired by Sally's patchwork dress and also the need to use up the scraps from the Halloween banner I created.

I trimmed the black card stock to create the card base and I simply started gluing down scraps from Pink & Main's Not Too Spooky paper pad. I took the scraps from Rinea's Haunted Variety Pack and the die to cut the word "happy" with its background on black card stock.

I then stamped the word Halloween using Pink & Main Curvy Girl Lower Alpha Pegz Stamps with Rinea's Ghost Ink on yet another scrap of foiled paper.

I couldn't find foam dots, so I used my Westcott's mini hot glue gun to make my own. I added the dots, allowed to cool and then add just a bit more glue to each dot and adhered the die cut to the front of the card.

I trimmed the "Halloween" at an angle on both ends and glued it down with a glue pen. I then added twine along with a very thin purple jute to the top of the card.

I finished off the card with round and star enamel dots.

I hope you enjoyed my Sally Halloween card and thank you for visiting today. Please visit again tomorrow for the 5th and last day of our partnership with Rinea.

Halloween with Rinea & Pink and Main

It's kick off! It's a week full of inspiration with Rinea and Pink & Main's partnership week!! Today is my day to share for Rinea and I will be back on Thursday to share my project for Pink & Main, but  before we get to my project, I want to mention there are TWO amazing prizes to be won, yes two!
So please follow Rinea and Pink & Main Facebook pages for the details.

Now onto my Halloween banner!
I used Rinea's Haunted Artist's Pack and the fabulous Ghost Ink! I gathered up Pink & Main goodies, Not Too Spooky paper pad, Stitched Circle Dies, and Spooktacular stamp set.

Rinea's Haunted Artist's Pack measures 4" x 6" and I did was cut the dove tails. I then trimmed Pink & Main's paper to measure 5 1/2" x 6" and cut the dove tails. The Kraft banner was pre-cut so next I  used Westcott's Mini Glue Gun to adhere the pattern paper onto the Kraft banner pieces.

I stamped the images from the Spooktacular stamp set onto Rinea's foiled paper using the Ghost Ink. Sorry for the missing photo, but it's super easy to use. Make sure you stamp is seasoned and apply a generous amount of Ghost Ink, stamp the image and allow to dry. Then wipe the Ghost Ink off with a baby wipe. It's that easy and I love it!

I then cut the images using the Stitched Circle dies and glued them to the banner pieces. Next, I hot glued the purple pom pom ribbon and added tassels using twine and jute.

I embellished each image with enamel dots and stars. I simply love how easy it was to make this banner!

I hope you enjoyed my too cute to spook banner! Don't forget to follow Rinea and Pink & Main on Facebook. Thank you for visiting.
