Blessed Life Altered tag Craftwell Design Team Project

 Hello Friends! I have a sweet little altered tag, that can be used in a layout, on a package or set in an easel as decor.

I cut the wording from a peice of design paper form Teresa Collins Hello My Name Is line and the background paper is from the same line as well.

The tag on the right was cut and embossed with Craftwell's eBosser.
The shipping tag is stamped with a stamp from Something tattered and the journal card is one of my digis.

I just glued the sides and bottom of the chipboard fence to create a pocket and attached some Prima hydrangeas and seam binding.
Tags, digi's, seam binding and all kinds of goodies can be purchased here:

Here's the tag without the I said, easy peasey!
Oh, the butterfly was punched with a Martha Stewart punch.
Thanks for peeking and have a wonderful day!

Hello Friends! I have a cute little banner to share with you today. It actually started off as a mini album lol and then evolved to this.
The background papers are from Teresa Collins Hello My Name Is line and the little flags are from her Save the Date line.

I cut the words from one of the Hello My Name Is Paper. Everything is inked in Vintage Photo Distress 
These little chipboard pieces can be purchased in my Zibbet shop

I cut the cute little dress form with my Craftwell that machine! I added some bling and flowers. Super simple.

To make the banner, I sandwiched the seam binding between the chipboard and design paper...that seemed to be the easiest way and you all know I am a fan of easy! 
I cut little pieces of bling to make the body of the butterfly

Like I said before, this was a really simple little project that would be cute on a wall, door, or attached to a gift. Thanks for peeking!

Craftwell design Team interactive embellishment Featuring Teresa Collins continued

Hello Friends!  
I'm back with the inside of the interactive embellishment that I showed you last week.
T refresh your memory, this is the front...
So basically the base of this embellishment is the green scalloped card. I just adhered the library pockets to the front and back of the scalloped card. Easy Peasy!

I matted the scalloped card with beautiful paper from Teresa Collins "My Name Is" line

Using my eBosser, I cut the cute little dress form and trimmed it with lace and a rose. I made sure to leave the edges of the dress form unglued so a picture can be slid behind it. Another option would be to just tack it down at the top and bottom and use it as a pocket to tuck pictures, journal cards etc.. into

I cut up some Prima bling and used as a necklace on the dress form and the body of the butterfly. You can make your bling go a long way by cutting it up.
I ran the tag through the eBosser in an embossing folder, then inked it to make the embossing pop. I love this little girl image that serves as a journaling card.

Here it is without the pull outs

Thanks so much for peeking!
Supplies and digi's can be purchased in my store

Hello Friends!
 As some of you may know, Radiant Orchid is the Pantone color of the year. (...okay, so the colors in the mini's are not exactly radiant orchid...but they are in the purple family) So I'm hoping the fashion trend will extend to the paper craft industry! Have you tried searching for pretty papers in purples? It is slim pickins!

If you don't use purple, violets or lavenders very often, this time of year is the perfect time to try it out. You can easily incorporate it into your Easter and spring projects.
Here are a couple pictures of an Easter album I made a couple of years ago. The digi's flowers, chipboard, tags etc can be purchased in my Zibbet shop.
Here's one of many Easter digi's

Here's another little mini with some purple :)

Thanks for peeking! I hope you are inspired to add a little purple to your projects :)

Craftwell Design Team project: Mini album interactive embellishment Featuring Teresa Collins

Hello Friends!
 Sometimes I like to make embellishments for my mini's with leftover scraps. I just can't bare to throw away even the tiniest piece....I'm sure one day I'll be featured on hoarders. Don't act like you don't know what I'm talking about :)
 Anyway, I made this little embellie, it will be glued into a mini at some point. Or, I may use it as a greeting card that can hold a gift card....hmmmm the possibilities!

Here it is:
The base is made of little half size library pockets (They are connected by the scalloped "Hinge" I'll show you that next week.
I made a pocket out of one of my digital images and added a little tag. The design paper on the tag is from Teresa Collins "Save the Date" line.
I then added a little seam binding and rose to the tag.

Using my Ebosser, I sut a pretty little mat and layered another one of my images on top of that.

Here it is without the tags. The design paper is from Teresa Collins "Hello My Name Is" line

That's it for today! I'll give you a peek at the inside next week. Thanks for peeking!
