Fashionable Femmes!

Glue books are a lot of fun to create! 
is be a perfect book to make one!
I am creating a book that is some where between a glue book and a lot of mini collages.   

The Arched Door Blank Board Book is the base for my "Fashionable Femmes" book.  During May I will be sharing it as I create pages in it!

First, ink the edges of the book with Tsukineko StazOn Midi Spiced Chai.  Cut the pattern paper to fit the front of the book and ink edges. Adhere pattern paper to the book. 

Using the inkjet, print the Altered Pages Collage Sheet ATC Decorative Boarders and Architecture on Craft Attitude™ printable film. Layer one of the  ATC Decorative Boarders over the image of woman from  Color Pink ATC's sing glue stick on the printed side of the film. Cut the column for the Archticture collage sheet.  Attach images to book cover.

Add flowers. "Fashionable Femmes" is stamped directly on the book, Airmail is stamed with Tsukineko StazOn Midi Spiced Chai on cardstock stamps.
To finish the cover spritz with Imagine Crafts irRESISTible Bronze, you will love this product. It adds a bit of texture to the surface.  If you look closely you can see the texture on the cover of the book.

  2. What a lovely glue book! I love the colors and images you used soft and dreamy!
    TFS Lyneen!!

  3. so pretty, look forward to seeing what else you do with it!

    I'm not familiar with the term "glue book" - what is it?

  4. Such a lovely layout, perfectly colored and embellished!

  5. I haven't made a glue book in quite a while. I love how you've begun yours, and I love the shape of the book. It will be interesting to see how the rest of the book develops. Will you stay to a certain theme or color palette or will each page/2 pages be unique? I'm inspired now to choose one of my blank books and start my own glue book for spring. Thanks for the inspiration! Anne, yourmainestamper

The Gift Card Card

Robin here and today I have a project for you that is a fun way to give gift cards or cash.  

You will need two envelopes for this project.  One is what the post office calls the 6 1/4 Commercial envelope.  When I was growing up we just called it a letter envelope.  It's a smaller rectangle than the #10, being just 3 5/8" x 6 1/4".  The other is a standard A6.  I chose the A6 because it fits inside the letter envelope when it's folded in half and it's also large enough to hold a check or cash, as well as a gift card.

With the flap against the body of the envelope, fold it in half from side to side.  Cut the flap in half and trim the inside cuts at an angle so that they don't interfere with the fold or get bunched up. 

Decorate the flap side of your envelope.  This will be the inside of your card.  Fold the envelope again and decorate the side that will be the front of your card.

Cut a panel of card stock to fit inside the 6 1/4 Commercial (letter) envelope.  Att…

Pretty Little Trees of all colors

Make adorable ornaments or decor items.

YOU can make the most colorful trees to fit your style and home.  Surprise someone with a color coordinated gift too!
I did different techniques for dyeing the sisal trees from AlteredPages.  We have 3 inch and 4 inch sizes in natural cream color available.

# 1 Technique used simple food coloring.  Yep, just like dyeing Easter Eggs!

I used an empty glass jar filled with water and dropped about 4 to 5 of green food coloring in and stirred it well.   I then placed a tree in the water.  The sisal is just like jute, so it absorbs the color easily.   I allowed it to be submerged for a minute and took it out.  The first dipping was paler than I wanted, so back into the water!

I did the same with red food coloring and added blue to the green for an aqua, as above.   Depending on how many drops of color you add to the water and how long you leave them submerged will determine the intensity of color.  Pull them out of the water after 30 seconds and check for …
