Good morning!!! Today I sharing a couple Christmas Cards, Tag and Photo Mat that I created for our Christmas in July collaboration with PageMaps . The week of July 23-27 the Authentique Team used PageMaps and CardMaps sketches as inspiration....so if you missed them make sure to go back and check them out. If you have never used a sketch...well it is a great way to get inspired.


The Noel Card is created very simply by adhering the Jingle pattern paper to the card base. Add a few matted pattern paper squares to top.


Die cut a snowflake to place in the center and add a small circle punch gingerbread house in the center of the snowflake.


Stamp NOEL to pattern paper with black ink. Wrap red twine around card and tie NOEL to twine. Create a twine bow and adhere to top of card.


Create a pocket inside of  card with pattern paper.


Make a fun gift tag to place inside.


Front and Back of Tag with Gift Card slide under Doily Die Cut.


For my second card I created a "Have A Wonderful Christmas Full of Love" Card


Adhere pattern paper to top of card base. Wrap red twine around card. Tie button into place with red twine. Add small flags under scallop borders.


Stamp sentiment to card front.


Mat Santa Epherema Card to pattern paper; add to top of card with pop dots.


Create Photo Pocket inside card.


Using one of the large Santa Epherema Cards create a photo mat with Jingle pattern paper.

(Disclaimer Notice: I’ve received products/compensation as part of the Authentique Design Team. This project however, is 100% my own project! Some of the links in this post are affiliate links. I explain more here.)

Hi Authentique Fans! I love this fun Companions Collection. I have the cutest little Yorkie Charlie and he is so spoiled, overweight and needs lots of attention. LOL I thought the Companions Collection would make a fabulous memo holder to place on my desk so I would be reminded how precious Charlie is to our family.


Begin by die cutting a small storage box from chipboard, cover with pattern paper. Ink edges.
(Box measures: 4 1/8" x 6 1/2" x 1/2")



Cover a 4" x 6" Paper Pad with pattern paper; decorate front.


Add metal handle to top of decorated paper pad. Tie twine to handle. Place paper pad inside prepared box. Add small beads to bottom of memo holder.


Corner punch, ink,  mat and adhere Epherema Card to back of prepared memo box. Add metal arrow to top.


Die cut doily and circle punch image from pattern paper. Adhere to top of box.
(Don't tell anyone but I took the doggy from the Monopoly Game and place it on my memo box.)


Die cut birdhouse from Companions paper. Adhere to top of memo holder.


Frame the word "Dog" with metal frame; adhere to front of birdhouse.


Decorate a fussy cut dog and place on front. 


Add flowers and twine bows to top of birdhouse. 


I hope you are inspired to create a memo pad holder for yourself or maybe to give as a gift. Hugs Pam

(Disclaimer Notice: I’ve received products/compensation as part of the Eileen Hull Inspiration  Team. This project however, is 100% my own project! Some of the links in this post are affiliate links. I explain more here.)

Happy Tuesday!!! 
It is "ANYTHING GOES" with Eileen's Inspiration Team this month. 
I am sure you will be delighted to see how the team has combined her dies to create some fun and fabulous projects!!!


In a month I am heading out on a 5 week vacation to finish my 50 state bucket list of being in all the states.
 I thought I needed  a Travel Journal to carry along with me in the truck to take notes and jot down things that we see and do after all we are estimating a 6000 mile trip. 
I know I wont' be able to remember everything, lol.



To begin the Travel Journal Storage Box; die cut Card Box, Planner Storage and Organizer.
Create a mist with Clearsnap Colorbox Blends Inks by carefully removing tips; drop a few drops of ink into tiny misting bottles and fill with water. 
Spray the Card Box, Planner Storage and Organizer with prepared mist; dry. 
Stamp background images with Clearsnap Colorbox Blends Ebony Blend. 
Ink edges with Clearsnap Colorbox Blends Nutmeg Blend. 
Form Box. 


Adhere pattern paper to outside of the Card Box, Planner Storage and Organizer using DCWV Vintage Memories Paper Pad.


Ink pattern paper from the DCWV Vintage Memories Paper Pad using Clearsnap Colorbox Blends. 
Die cut flower pieces from Bookmark, Tag & Pocket Die.



Layer flowers together. Carefully cut flowers to center. 
Use stylus, tweezers and flower mat to form flowers. 
Adhere pieces together. Add metal brad to center.

\
Add flowers to top of prepared box. 


 Add to front of box. 



Add twine and ribbon bow along with the planner embellishments. 


Cut 3 cards to measure 5" x 6 1/2", 4 1/2" x 6" and 4" x 5 1/2", layer together. 
Punch a small hole at the top and the bottom of stacked cards on crease line. 


Decorate each of the cards with layers of DCWV Vintage Memories Paper Pad inked with Clearsnap Clearsnap Colorbox Blends Nutmeg Ink. 
Add die cuts from the supply list to decorate each of the pages. 


Add metal gemstones to pages!


Create extra pages with scored and folded paper added under the DCWV Vintage Memories Paper Pad
Decorate the pages also. 


Tie pages closed with twine. 


Add hidden tags under mats by only placing adhesive on 3 sides of mats. 



Add Journaling Words to pages. 






When pages are decorated; tie together with twine. 


I hope you are inspired to create a few Travel Journal Storage Boxes! 
They will hold all types of Journals, Notepads, Photos, it is just an all around organizer that you will love!!!
