Travel Time Card

Hi everyone ! Eunice here from The Little Things ! I created a quick little card or journal to either keep or give as a card for a reminder of some travels or you can use any theme you want !  I made this using a vintage tiny folder , but you can create one from card stock also in any color you want !! I  first stamped my little folder with stamps ( any theme you choose ) !

The photo above has one of my favorite stamps from AP , can be found here ! You can create any word you want with this set ! The bird is here !  I took a manila tag and glued an image on it , again , you can use any image that will go with your theme !  
I used one of my vintage maps and cut out the shape of my tag , then cut a slit so it will reveal your hidden image underneath ! You can "roll" the triangles a bit and distress with inks to age and distress if you like !
The above photo is using collage sheets with travel theme, I also attached a little tag with adorable suitcase's and used a brad for one of the wheels to add interest ! I attached the tag using a favorite lightbulb saftey pin , they are so adorable !!
 Using stamps ,and tissue tapes ect on the inside for a place to write your note !I used spray mist to add color on the folder front and back and lightly on the inside. You can also use a blending tool and stamp pad if you don't have spray mists !
On the back I added another image from the collage sheet !
Hope you have a creative day !!

Rolling with my Gel Press

I love experimenting with different ways to create texture and interest on my Gel Press and for many years now I have turned to fun foam to help do this when monoprinting.  I love to team the fun foam with my dies to create my own stamps and texture plates.  I used this techniques for my prints in January that I shared here on the blog. There are lots of dies that have detail, meaning lots of scrap pieces which you can randomly stick onto cardboard giving you a stamp as well as using the actually die cut shape as a stamp.  Another idea is using them attached to a toilet roll to create a brayer like roller was shared at my local scrapbook store and on a video by Birgit Koopsen last year.  I love playing with this method. The toilet roll is slipped over a paint roller handle.

Here you can see some of my texture creations that I have on hand for my play today.

One texture I love is created using a piece of burlap ribbon, which I have stuck onto a toilet roll. My first layer above used th…

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…
