Artisan Presents

April 30, 2015

001I have had my Artisan Embellishments Kit for a while now and thought it was the perfect way to create a small gift for each of my friends attending Convention with me.  You always need something to write in when you are at convention and I thought that the Large Kraft Journals in the Occasions Catalogue would be perfect.  I decided to sponge Blushing Bride ink onto Whisper White card using the beautiful laser cut stencil in the Kit as a template.  Isn’t that rose background beautiful. 002 I added half a doily to the bottom of the sponged card and then some of the beautiful Blushing Bride rosettes included in the kit.  Now I had a dilemma, how would they be able to distinguish their own journals.  So I added a piece of the Blackberry Bliss Velvet Trim to the back of each journal using a Candy Dot Brad Base and a Blackberry Bliss Candy Dot.  I punched 2″ circles from Window Sheet and cut each person’s initial from Blushing Bride card (retired Die).  I sandwiched the initial between the circles using Crystal Effects and let them dry.  I punched a hole using my Crop-A-Dile and tied them to the Blackberry Bliss Velvet Trim using Gold Baker’s Twine.  They now have a marker to keep their place in the journal and a way of identifying their own journal.

003I also made a tag for our Convention Bags.   When we register for Convention we will all be given a bag, exactly the same bag!  So you can image how difficult it can be identifying your bag from the hundreds of other bags.  I decided to keep on with the Artisan Embellishment Kit but this time I sponged Rose Red ink over the Laser Cut stencil.  The card was then cut using a Circle Framelit Die004I added a slightly larger circle of Rose Red card and then a Scalloped Circle of Basic Black card.  I cut out each initial from Basic Black card and added a layer of Crystal Effects to the initials.  Once the initials were dry I attached them to the left hand side of the tag.  I had some retired Rosette Trim left over in my cupboard (I told you I was a hoarder) and added them around the right hand side of the tag.  Hopefully we won’t lose our Convention Bags now.

Keep tuned in case I find out anything fantastic that I am allowed to share.

Bye for now,
