POSH layout with Yuko

Hello!Yuko here.
Well, I began to make this layout in the end of last year, and it was being left!
I created it again and finished it!!!

We  went in one "Amanohashidate" of the famous place of Japan.
It is series "POSH" of the trip theme of Marion Smith to use.

The simple drape which is made paper of Marion Smith.
 It's used a property of the paper of Marion Smith

I love the atmosphere that is a vintage though it is this POP very much.

Thank you!

Card by Yasmin Tölche

Hello everyone! It's Yasmin on the blog today and I have a sweet card to share with you. This card fits for loads of occassions since I didn't write any specifics on it.

I've used different papers from different collections on this.. It's kind of a "scrap-paper" card. You can find papers from the Junque Gypsy collection, Romance Novel II and Posh collection.

I seriously wanted to make a card with this large lush resin Rose that Marion Smith has designed. It's just so fantastic. I added a few other flowers and loads of pearls and microbeads.

This little bling heart is also a MSD embellishment. Isn't it the sweetest? 
Thank  you so much for stopping by the blog today! Have a great day :)

Timekeeper Mini Album

I am so glad to be back inspiring you all with more lovely inspiration with the gorgeous Marion Smith Designs. 

I absolutely feel in love with the Timekeeper collection.

I decided to make a quick and fun mini album. I even took some pictures to share how I made it. So come along. 

So let's start with making the base.

#1 - First I scored a 12x12 at 1/2", 5 3/8", 6", 6 5/8", and 11 1/2".
#2 - I turned it and scored at 9".
#3 - I folded it straight down the middle.
#4 Then I cut up the the 1/2" off each end leaving the 1/2" after the 9" score and I cut up the middle from the bottom up to the 9" score as well crating the pockets.

#5 - I cut in on the flaps and angled the edges  so they could be glued down.
#6 - I folded the flaps accordingly however this is up to you if you want flaps or not.
#7 - Fold in the flaps and glue them down. 
#8 - I trimmed the length of the mini down to how long I wanted it. Basically I trimmed 2 inches because I wanted it to be 7" tall. 

#9 - I punched holes for my rings to go through.
#10 - I added rivets so the paper wouldn't tear from use.

Then embellish as you see fit. 

I hope you try this mini album out as I would love to see what you create!

Florence from the planner team

Hello Heart of Gold lovers :) Florence here sharing you my week! Decoration wise, I love variety so I chose to use bits and pieces from my stash. But something different I wanted to do was make a pocket. I've seen so many cool little additional pockets in people's planners I've decided to make a simple one. 

All you'll need is:
6x6 or scrap paper
Scissors or trimmer
Hole puncher
Goodies to stuff inside

All I did was fold over the paper to my liking, trimmed it down to my preferred size, put some adhesive and hole punched it. Normally people use pockets that are front facing, I wanted to use something that I can push into, so I did a simple fold so I can tuck some small goodies in there. Simple right? 

You can make these in all different shapes and sizes. Some people like to add many pockets while on the other hand I am content with just one. 

I wanted to share a little unique way to personalize your planner a little more. Until next time!

4 series mixed layout by Yuko

Hello! It's Yuko here!

I love all series!

The series by which these are 2 is rich in the vintage atmosphere.

Araceli from the planner team

Hello Ara here today to share with you my layouts for this week. This week I am using the sweet life weekly planner inserts. I am sure I mentioned that I am totally digging these inserts. Look at all that space!!

  Here is a better look of the left side of the spread. At the bottom of each day I like to write down what we will be having for either dinner or lunch. I also like decorating my planner with lots of stickers, labels, stencils and fortunes from fortune cookies (I don't eat the cookie, I just take out the fortune).

This week I decided I would use the Sweet life daily inserts for my hobby section.  I used the Marion Smith date seals as  bullet points. I also used the Purple Heart checklist notepad to mark down errands. 

Well ladies and gents, that is all I have for you today. Until next time. Bye Bye.

Altered Box by Irene Tan

Hello everyone! It's Irene here again and today, I would like to share a little altered project with you all here! It is a small altered box which I've created using a recycled plastic floss box and Marion Smith Designs Junque Gypsy collection.

Here are some details on it.

To make it more feminine, I've added some lace, pearls and flowers onto the box. To detail the flower cluster, I've also inserted some stamens in between them.

Besides the outside of the box, I've also covered the inside of the box with the gorgeous pattern papers. Hope you all like this project! See you all soon!

Supplies Used:
Junque Gypsy collection

Shaker Tags

Hello all you lovelies out there. Shanna here with some fun inspiration. 

You know those shaker cards?? Well why not a shaker tag??

I made some using my favorite paper right now Junque Gypsy Nota Bene.

Ready for a little how-to? Grab your cup and keep reading. PICTURE HEAVY!

I traced a tag for the top layer. 

Then I cut it out. I also cut out some circles in the tag for spots to see the sparkle stuff on the inside. 

I started with some gold powder from the color lab. 

Then some Teal. 

Then Dusty Rose. Each spritzed with water after I added the powder. 

Then I added some acetate paper with good tacky glue. I then added foam tap so there is room for the sparkly stuff to move around. 

Here you can see the filler stuff in the tags. 

Then I added the back of the tags and finished embellishing them. 

I also used flowers from my stash and some of the Sweet Pea Paper flowers to add extra pop to my tags. I added words by way of Tim Holtz Chit Chat stickers and inked all my edges with Black Soot Distress Ink.

Hope you were inspired I would love to see you shaker tags. 
Thanks for stopping by!
