Wedding day using page for ss using kaisercraft honey chai

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Hi all, happy tuesday!!! Have you gotten your hands on the kaisercraft honey chai collection yet? It is so fun to create with!!! It is a beautiful paper collection! For this week i made a page with a pic i found recently of my parents wedding. I just love the black and white photos on these romantic and floral patterned papers. I first put the diecut frame onto the floral paper and grabbed bits and scraps from my other projects and layered them. then, i played with the stickers and used the two floral clusters opposite each other and laid the border sticker on top. Next to add texture i added a doily flower from my stash and placed a flower sticker on top. Lastly, i added letter stickers to make the title and added some bling and rubons from my stash for interest. Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!!! Jen t. 
 
 



 




What i used: 
kaisercraft honey chai papers,diecut paper and stickers

From my stash: pink paislee rubons, and green gems

You are no. 1!!! Card for speedy scrappers

Hi all, happy tuesday!!!  I am excited to share a fun card i made with ya today using the papers from the blast off kaisercraft and border stickers from the hello sunshine kaisercraft collection.  It is a 6 x6 card (my fav size) with a square window. I first cut out the word paper and used it as a base and then adhered the red star cutout on top.  I looked at it and didn't like it so i saw my alien cutout and thought it would look cute peeking out of the card. So ,To make the square window i busted out my old school fiskars shape cutting board and picked a square closest to the size of my lil alien and held my breath as i cut thru the two layers of paper without a mistake and swoo! It did! :D i then put him from behind on to the inside of the card, added the sticker border strips to the top and added some punched out and pop-dotted shapes for dimension. Next i cutout the words you are and made it into a banner for the top left corner Then for a little sparkle i added layered white and green sequins for the aliens eyes and a dot a gold stickles on the eyes and star for some sparkle. thanks for stopping by and happy creating!!   jen t. :)

Back to nature shadow box using moxxie's happy camper line

Hi all, how is your summer going? I can't believe summer is half over already! my favorite part of summer is getting outside more. So i thought to get the feel of bringing the outside in when I have to be inside would be to make some fun home decor. So, i used the happy camper collection to make a fun little shadow box to hang in my hallway.  I first, grabbed an old watch box lid that i had (the other half i used on a past project) so it is a two-fer and up cycling in one. I then grabbed my brown acrylic paint and rubbed it all over the box for a distressed look . Next i looked at the die cuts and saw the wood look frame... the size matched the box (i lucked out) then i grabbed  some more die cuts and papers to try and started adding the layers. On the inside is the green plaid paper followed by a oval die cut and then the tree die cut with pop dots behind it . Next, i added a back to nature sticker on top with pop dots behind also. I then glued the frame die cut on the edges and added a flower i made using the pretty brown polka dot paper and a butterfly punch and added a tree brad to hold it all together. Lastly i added the swirls next to the flower and tied a ribbon to the top. Oh! I almost forgot, the striped banner sticker i wrapped around the edges to finish it off. 













Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!!  --jen t.

What Moxxie goodies i used: 

Other things i used:
American crafts ribbon
Rangerpopdots
Zipdry glue

collage thank you card using kaisercraft honey chai for Speedy scrappers

Hi all, happy tuesday!!! Jen t. Here stopping by to share a card i made using the kaisercraft honey chai collection. And guess what it  is not a 6 x6 card.. It is a 5 x 6 card this time:)  I first had it as a 6 x 6 card but when I added the peach journal card and added the sticker borders I didn't like how my edge looked so I trimmed it off. I  then added the letter stickers from the collection to spell out thank you and fussy cut out some cute birds and butterflies from the glossy patterned paper and adhered them  (the butterfly and added a lil popdot for dimension) and then I took two of the black and white flower stickers and layered them with a popdot in between too and adhered that. then in my stash I found a pretty green ribbon to accent the card and a matching
 glitter brad that I put in the flower center. lastly, I distressed and inked the edges for a shabby chic sorta look . thanks for stopping by and happy creating!!

Creative blog tour

Hi all, today I am doing a fun post. I was asked to join a creative blog tour and i am excited to be following some awesomely talented ladies!

my friend Ange from   http://scrappingcompulsion.blogspot.com asked me to join in this tour. I met ange on another dt I am also on and realized what a fun, sweet and talented lady she is!  I just love her creative style!
I will tag another creative lady at the end of my post to continue on with the tour.

****
What am I working on?

here is a peek of a project I just finished using MOXXIE  happy camper (sorry, I can't show you yet but keep an eye on my blog for pics to come)
 but here are some other projects I just completed recently that I can show you:)



 


2. How does my work differ from others of its genre?
 
I like to use the basic tools in different ways and I like to challenge myself to make projects with limited supplies and papers. I also, want a beginner papercrafter to think i can make that and hopefully inspire someone to try a new technique or papers they thought they would not normally use. 
3. Why do I write/create what I do? 
papercrafting is my passion. constantly challenging myself and making things is what drives me. I call it my therapy because it calms me, especially after a hard day of momming three kiddos. I also, like to share my ideas and work with others and passion for papercrafting in hopes to inspire more people to papercraft. 
4. How does your writing/creating process work?
I first pick out the papers that i want to work with and then i let the theme or patterns inspire the project. Then i create the project, take pics of it, then i blog and post to social media about it.

Be you card for ss using kaisercraft honey chai

Hi all,  happy tuesday!!! Today i am sharing a card that i made using kaisercraft honey chai papers and stickers. I first started out the other night coloring a stamped image i had from a swap with my watercolor pencils. I  then realized the next day that it went with the soft colors of the honey chai collection and got excited to put them together in a card. I then took out my old school fiskars oval cutter and cut out the middle of my image of the boats and set the two pieces aside while i made the base. For the base i cut a 6 x12 piece of the pink wood grain paper and folded it in half. Then i  placed the square part of the image on top and pop-dotted the oval in the middle while  leaving room on the bottom of the card to embellish a little. next, I added a border sticker underneath and cut out the inspirational word strip from the bottom of one of the patterned papers and made it look like a banner by trimming the edges and only gluing it down in a couple spots to give it a lil dimension. Lastly, I added lil flowers I punched out with pearl centers and added a word and letter stickers to accent the corner. oh! then I wanted to add texture so I tucked three flowers to the top left corner and wrapped some twine above the border strips. make sure you get your honey chia paper collection at speedy scrappers so that you can have as much fun with this collection as I am:)
 happy creating!   jen t.

2 in 1 boy/girl flip paperbag minialbum using moxxie wee ones collection


Hi all, happy day!!  jen t. here. I am stopping by today to share a fun mini album i made . I call it a flip paper bag mini album because it is made from paper bags and  then when you get to the middle you flip it to see the other half, one side baby boy and the other baby girl.(you know, kind of like those story books that are 2 in 1 )  So i used that idea to make this mini for my friend who is having twins- a boy and girl so she could either but her sonograms pics or new pics on the album and in the ockets. For the paper I used, the Wee Ones collection is perfect for this project. To start for this album, i kept the paperbags the full size. I then cut and trimmed the patterned paper to size only folding one paper bag 3/4 of the way(to make my middle) so that all pages front of that folded one are girl and all pages after the folded one are boy. I then took diecuts, stickers and scraps of my patterned paper left to make a couple tags and make framed pages as for photos to be accented by them later. I then, hole punched two holes thru all the bags and threaded ribbon thru it to bind it together. I then, embellished with my enamel dots and a couple plastic rocking horses to add simple interest to the mini. thanks for stopping by and happy creating!!     Jen t.
