Hugs and Kisses Candy Box Artist on the Block

 Wow...more love on the blog today using Eileen Hull fabulous Artist Block Die from Sizzix.
 I wanted to share with you how to make them using all those cardboard boxes that your might have laying around. To begin with just cut pieces of the cardboard to fit the die and run through your die cut machine. Once cut....fold at the fold lines and pull carefully pull off some of the paper from the corrugated insides. I took white paint and dry brushed over the cardboard and then formed my Artist Block before I decorated it.
 I stamped four hearts from my stamp set and colored them in using paint I had diluted, allow them to dry thoroughly and glue to chipboard, cut out and wrap with wire.
Place them on to distress pattern paper using pop dots. 
To finish off my Hugs & Kisses box I stamped my sentiment on my pattern paper using Black Indian Ink and die cut it out using Eileen Hull Label Die. Add to the top with pop dots once inked with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress ink, tie bow with tan twine.

Love Banner with Xyron

Wow...can you believe it is time to think about Valentine decorations and gifts, well today I am sharing with you an easy banner I created using one of my new "loves" from Xyron...the Teresa Collins Mega Runner. 
I began by cutting 4 pieces of 4 x 6 cardboard from an old box, corner punch them using a corner chomper and painting the edges using Deco Art White Gesso.
I used my Teresa Collins Mega Runner and applied the tape to the cardboard, love, love, how easy it glides over the pieces and drops the adhesive with out tearing up the cardboard and paper that I am using, I guess that is why I love it so much. Once I had my adhesive applied I placed my embossed white paper to the top of each cardboard piece. (NOTE: Each banner is made the same, so what ever I did for one of the banner I did for all four, excluding the letters, lol)
 BUT...I have a secret....between my Mega Runner and the Create A Sticker
 I think it is a close tie to my how I can run multiples through the machine and it is so fabulous for intricate die cuts.
Anyway...after you have all your die cuts from Spellbinders cut just make an assemble line, get your fabulous Teresa Collins Mega Runner from Xyron and adhere each of the pieces to the cardboard. 
Place a stripe the strip you ran through the Create A Sticker to the top. Add both a strip of pattern paper and scallop border to the top of each banner using your Teresa Collins Mega Runner. 
 Here is a closer look at each banner...Love all the layers, don't you?
 To make you letters...use you Xyron Glue Stick and cover each letter with glue.
 Layer each letter with pattern paper, turn over and remove the excess paper with an xacto knife.
 Adhere to the center of each of brown embossed pieces that are on pop dots.
I hope you make yourself a "Love Banner" using my super easy steps and of course your fabulous Xyron Adhesive. Sending you love and hugs. Pammejo

Gift Box with Eileen Hull's Inspiration Team I am sharing with you how to combine several of Eileen Hull Sizzix dies together to form a fabulous gift idea. Eileen Hull’s January Art with Heart Challenge is up and running. We would love to see your projects and you could win a new Vintage Kitchen 3-D Oven die!
our theme this month is "Fresh Ideas", so make sure to check out the Art With Heart Challenge and play along.
 I placed a Medium Block Die using the XL Scoreboard Block Die and mat board that was covered with Graphic 45 French County Country Collection. I repeated with making a Candy Drawer using the Sizzix Candy Drawer Die from Sizzix.
 I punched and stamped several tags to place inside of the box. I decorated them with corresponding paper and die cuts from the Kitchen Label Die Set. I repeated with the candy drawer and wrapped a few candy bars with the paper, fussy cut some of the sunflowers and place them on the candy bars with pop dots.
 I added a tag that I had crumpled up, inked to the top of the block using Xyron Adhesive dots, added a fun bow, a metal embellishment and some a fun bling center to my sunflower.
I love to fussy cut so I cut several of the roosters from the Graphic 45 French County papers and added them to the top of the labels I cut from Sizzix Kitchen Label that is part of Eileen Collection, to finish my project I added a few small bead legs to my Gift Box. I hope you enjoy my Gift Box and try to combine your dies together to create a fabulous gift. Hugs Pammejo

Day Planner with Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog-Choose Your Challenge

 Welcome to the first Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge of 2015.... so to begin with you will need to head over to the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog
 and check out the changes that have been made for doing the HERE!!!
Decide on you project...
then check out the chart to see how to participate in the challenge...
I made a Day Planner to place my design projects schedule in but you can use the same idea to make it into any type of planner that you wish.
I began by purchasing an inexpensive book from our local craft store for a dollar.
I took the front and back off the book and painted it with Black Paint from DecoArt...
Once the paint was dry I put the book back together and added my Graphic 45 ABC Primer papers to the front, back and inside covers. I inked all the edges with Chestnut Roan.  I added a fun border that I made from a EK Success Punch.
I distressed my journal block and mat using a distress tool, inked the edges and added it to the front of my Day Planner once I had my Tim Holtz Rub Ons in place using pop dots. I added Tim Holtz letters and numbers to the front along with a metal arrow. 
I added on small flower that I made using flower pieces from my stash along with adding a fun bow.
I went through my planner and wrote all the dates in with a LePen and added the month tabs to the side of the beginning of the month pages. 
I hope you enjoy my Day Planner and try making yourself one or even to make for a gift. I hope you play along with us at Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog and make sure to check out the design team for more inspiration and REMEMBER: check out the new changes along with the chart for your project.
