Seaside Paper Tray

Hi Magnolia fans! Today it’s time for the reminder post at Marvelous Magnolia August challenge. The current theme is
I wanted to use the new Magnolia stamp for this challenge so I made the beach theme paper theme using “Tilda Playing in the Water” stamp from the latest Seaside collection. I also used “Edwin Catching Fish” from Sea Breeze 2013 collection and “Largo the Dolphin” stamp from Summer Memories 2012 collection. They were all colored with distress ink. The sea-theme die cuts were from Cottage Cutz and Joy Crafts. I planned to use this tray to hold pens and stationary on my desk.

Suitcase Accordion Album

Hi everyone! Today it’s the start of August month so it’s time for the new challenge at Magnolia Forever. The theme for this challenge is
I have created a suitcase accordion album to match with the challenge theme. This is perfect for storing photos from vacation trips. I cut the thick kraft paper into suitcase shape. The album cover is decorated with die cuts and paper in travel theme. I used Magnolia “Student Tilda with Sign” stamp from We Made It 2016 collection. The “Bon Voyage” message is the old stamp from Bon Voyage 2010 collection. The compass is from the “Anchor Kit” stamp from the latest Seaside collection.

The copper wire was curled and attached to the base in order to place the glass tube. The cute image was the Magnolia “Daffodil Tilda” stamp from Spring Fever 2016 collection. Die cuts are from Magnolia Doohickey.

Baby Boy Mini Album


Hi crafty friends! To share with you today is the creation I made for the new challenge at Magnolia Forever. The theme for this challenge is

I have seen many crafty people shared their mini albums. These have inspired me to create one. I think baby theme is perfect for mini album. So I created the 6x6 inch baby boy mini album using Magnolia “Baby Edwin” stamp from the Prince & Princess 2012 collection. The cover was also decorated with paper flowers and die cuts from  Magnolia Doohickey & Vintage Box, Marianne design, Lawn Fawn, and Tonic Studios.

Wedding Photo Frame

Hi everyone! Today, it is time for the new challenge at Magnolia Forever. The theme is

The project for this challenge is the wedding gift for my friend. I made a 4x6 inch photo frame using “Wedding Tilda” and “Where is My Bride Edwin” stamps from Special Moments 2013 collection. When putting photo into this frame, I want the photo to be focal point so I just add only few decorations at the corners.

‘A Boy’s Life’ Distress Ink Storage Box

Hello everyone! Today I have a project for Magnolia Forever challenge to share with you. The theme for this challenge is

To match the theme, I wanted to use dark colour tone for this creation. When I went through the Edwin Stamps that I had, I came up with the idea for this project. I always colour the stamped images with distress ink so I would like to make a box to store them. I had total 17 ink pads (and many more in mini size) so I made a storage box with 18 slots. Since I tend to buy more distress ink pads in mini size, just one empty slot will be enough. I also put my blog’s name on this box because it will be the treasure of my craft room.
Distress Ink Storage Box
The tray on the top is to store distress markers and some re-inker and paint bottles.
I used “Cool Edwin” stamp on one side of the box. The text was generated from computer with Graffiti font. This side represented a young boy who did anything he wanted just for fun no matter it was right or wrong.

On the other side, I used “Artist Edwin” stamp to represent a man who demonstrated his artistic skills in the positive way.

Both sides of the box represented a boy’s life. He might have made some mistakes when he was young. But he would learn and discover his strength to grow up to be a better man.

Materials:
  • Magnolia “Cool Edwin” stamp from Sweet Rainbow 2011 collection
  • Magnolia “Artist Edwin” stamp from Little Italy 2015 collection
  • Lawn Fawn “Harold’s ABCs” clear stamp
  • Hero Arts “Brush Strokes” stamp set
  • Die-Versions “Marquee” font alphabet dies
  • Magnolia Vintage Box 2nd Edition die
  • Black Cardboard
  • Studio Calico “Cat” wood veneer
  • Trims from La’boom

Here is the close up for young and old Edwin

Lastly, I would like to share my tips on how I store the blending foam for each ink colours. I add Velcro tape beneath each ink pads and stick the blending foam on the tape. However, if you store your ink pads by stacking them on each other, this technique will not work because Velcro tape and foam will make the ink pads not stacking together.
I would like to enter this project to these challenges.

I hope you like my project. See you again next time.
