Journaling Cards/Tags For: { Greeting Cards, Mini Albums, Gift Bags, and Etc.}

Happy Monday friends!^_^ I hope you had a wonderful National Scrapbooking Day last weekend. And I’m so glad that you’re here today because I’ll be sharing a few projects for you!^_^ Although we won’t be having a video tutorial this week, I have some simple and fun projects here, that’s picture loaded {lol}, which I hope you don’t mind! {heehee}

So let’s start with the materials that I used here. Aside from having a paper of your choice, we need different colored inkpads, distress ink, distressing tool, and clear stamps.

I used the Birthday Stamp Set and the Calendar Stamp Set. These stamps are not only good for cards and layouts, it is also perfect for journaling tags, and you will know what I mean if you’ll check out more photos below.^_^

I stamped it on a kraft cardstock using different kinds of inks. Cute right?^_^ Love it! Yes, it can be a journaling cards , tags, everything you can imagine! The creativity is endless here.  I also want to share some tips and tricks! Can you see that stamped word “NOTE” on the second tag? that’s from the stamp “just a NOTE.” I only added ink on the “NOTE” for a change, cool right? yeah! {hee} And how awesome are those journaling lines? They’re all from the Calendar Stamp Set.

To use it as a tag, you can easily punch a hole on the side and add your favorite twine.

Or if you just want to use it as a journaling card. Stick it directly on your mini album pages or use it as an inserts!^_^

How about adding it on a gift bag? And surprise your friends and family with some sweet treats?^_^

And of course, talking about quick and easy card. Here’s a really fun one to make!^_^ And how sweet would it be if you’ll write your own sentiments on it!^_^ I wrote mine using a regular pen and done!^_^ Totally loving it!

There’s more fun projects you can do with these stamp sets, just think outside the box and have fun creating!^_^

Enjoy your day!

Create It Wednesday { Altered Project }

Welcome back to Create It Wednesday with Andrea!^_^ How’s everyone doing? I hope all of you are doing well. Ok, so do you guys love to alter things? I actually do, so much!^_^ Aside from making cards, I do make some altered boxes and frames. I thought I’ll share this fun story, last December 2011, I had 2 custom orders, both were gifts for my client’s family member, and these were monthly hanging frames for a baby and a memory box.

Two weeks ago, I received an email from my client’s sister, asking me  if I can make two monthly hanging frames for her friends as a surprise.^_^ Her friends saw the frame that I made and they want to have it for their kids as well.   So now, I am currently working on two sets of  custom orders.  These are monthly photo hanging frames for babies, that’s a total of 24 frames! yikes!^_^ One is due next month for a birthday boy and the other one is early June for a baby shower. Fun right?^_^ Yes, these are big projects that I have to finish on time, and I enjoy every moment creating it!^_^

And today we have an altered project by Andrea, cute right? She made it into tag. And all of those stamped sentiments and images that you see inside the tin is from the Calendar Stamp Set.^_^ Make sure to keep all of those containers that you have, that will be fun to alter as well for this coming Christmas as an ornament for your tree.^_^ And yup! I altered our Christmas tree’s ornaments last year. That was sooo much fun!^_^

As soon as I’m done with my client’s projects, I will definitely share some altered projects for you as well using Precious Remembrance Shop Stamps.^_^

I hope these will inspire you to alter something today. And happy crafting!
