Good morning! How is everyone doing? :) Today I have a fun project that I made to share with you. As I was looking through my Moxxie goodies I came across Happy Camper line. When I saw it I immediately knew I wanted to use it for! To make a fun S'mores Kit!
Isn't it awesome! Happy Camper line had the perfect elements to make this cute little box! I used a sheet of Gone Camping and cut it into 3" strips and went around the middle of the whole box.
I then cut about an 1" strip off of Stick-y sheet. I accordioned it a bit to create some faux ribbon. I inked up the edges of it and all the embellishments and the edges of the box with some Tim Holtz Vintage Photo ink. Love inking up my edges with that ink!
I went through the die cut sheet and found the perfect pieces to use as some tags. I punched a little hole into each one and then threaded through some twine and tied them onto the box. Isn't that owl ADORABLE!? :) Here you can see a little better where I inked up the edges.
Then I made sure to fully stock this box up! It's all ready to go! :)
I love mixing and matching the Moxxie collections. Honestly? I usually don't mix and match papers across collections that often, but I seem to be doing it all the time lately with Moxxie's collections. Today I'm mixing Down on the Farm and Child's Play for my Playtime on the Farm layout.
We go to my in-laws almost every Sunday for lunch. When the weather's nice, my boys head right outside to play. We love finding the kittens (there are always kittens in the spring, summer, and fall).
My youngest nephew hasn't quite figured out how to gently love the kittens...but he's working on it (disclaimer: no kittens were hurt in the taking of these photos).
I used a combination of stickers, journaling cards, and die cuts from both collections to tie the papers from both collections together.
For the "Some Playtime!" tag, I covered up the word "pig" from the "Some Pig" label sticker from Down on the Farm with a "Playtime" die cut from Child's Play. Layering stickers and die cuts up is a great way to customize your titles.
Do you like to mix and match collections? We'd love to see what you've done. Just post a picture on Moxxie's Facebook page!

Hi, it's Joan and today I'm sharing a Camping Journal I decorated for a friend of mine. She and her husband go camping almost every week- end. I thought this would be a great way for them to document their trips. I used the Happy Camper and Busy Boy collections for this journal.
Composition books (like the one pictured below) are easy to decorate. I cut the orange paper from the B side of the Little Monster paper to fit the cover, up to, but not including, the black binding. I adhered the paper with adhesive squares. You could also use a glue stick or Elmer's glue - just be sure to smooth out the paper if glueing.
Next, I used washi tape from my stash and covered the black binding. I also ran washi tape around all the edges, partway on the paper and then tucking the rest behind the cover. The rope border punchout was added over the seam of the washi tape.
The embellishments (punchouts: owl, around the fire, frame and sticker: Camp Out) were added to the cover - some with adhesive squares and some with pop dots. Then I used punchouts and a sticker to make tabs for the book. I divided the book into three sections and added a tab at the beginning of each one.
The Back to Nature sticker was backed with cardstock to make it sturdier. That section of the journal can be used for birds, insects, animals, flowers, etc. seen while camping.
The marshmallow on a stick tab is for camp recipes. The Hiking tab is to document campgrounds, trails walked and even favorite campsites.
I made a bookmark for the journal, using a section of the pine trees from the Gone Camping paper. I inked the edges of the paper and mounted it to brown cardstock.
It's fun to personalize journals for friends and yourself!

I wrote in an earlier post that I would use the Moxxie "Road To Recovery" line three times. I made 2 cards with it last month and today is the 3rd time. It is an art journal layout.
As I said before, Recovery can be anything. Getting back on your feet after a job loss. A sickness. So many things can fit this line. I personally have been on a journey for 9 years and it isn't over yet. It never will be over. Not all illnesses can be cured. Some show you right away what the end of the journey will be so you have to make the most of your journey while you can. Journey's in general are always evolving. Sometimes writing it out on an art journal page is the best thing to do.
I started with Life's Gifts paper and adhered it to my journal. This paper has lines on it, like notebook paper, and an awesome saying "This Journey has not been a gift, but it has shown me what the gifts in my life really are." I sprayed blue Dylusions ink on the pages and let them dry. I wrote the saying on a die cut that goes with the set and adhered it to the page. I cut out one of the circles from the Journey paper and adhered it to the page. I loved that it said "My Journey" on it. I also added the circle die cut and a border die cut on the right, and the flourish die cut on the left. The circle flowers are die cuts that I wrinkled and inked and stacked. I finished off this layout with doodles. I always doodle when I make an art journal layout. There is doodling everywhere. That is a problem I have. I can't stop adding more doodles and details!! I used a Pitt Pen small for all of the doodles.
I wrote "This is MY journey and I can travel it anyway I want".
Hi all, happy day!! jen t. here. I am stopping by today to share a fun mini album i made. I call it a flip paper bag mini album because it is made from paper bags and then when you get to the middle you flip it to see the other half, one side baby boy and the other baby girl.(you know, kind of like those story books that are 2 in 1 ) So i used that idea to make this mini for my friend who is having twins- a boy and girl so she could either put her sonograms pics or new pics on the album and in the pockets. For the paper I used, the Wee Ones collection is perfect for this project.
To start for this album, i kept the paperbags the full size. I then cut and trimmed the patterned paper to size only folding one paper bag 3/4 of the way (to make my middle) so that all pages front of that folded one are girl and all pages after the folded one are boy. I then took diecuts, stickers and scraps of my patterned paper left to make a couple tags and make framed pages as for photos to be accented by them later. I then, hole punched two holes thru all the bags and threaded ribbon thru it to bind it together. I then, embellished with my enamel dots and a couple plastic rocking horses to add simple interest to the mini.

Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!! Jen t.
Previously I made a page for my cousin Alicia using MOXXIE's Paws N Claws line. The line features cats & dogs and yet I made it neutral. I wanted to try it again, but this time using the cat theme. I used another pic of my cousin Alicia for her graduation album. This pic came from her Facebook page (love that kids post stuff for us to use now a days).
This playful pic of her with kitty whiskers and nose just begged for the Paws N Claws line. Look how great the rub-on of the kitty is (these are high quality rub-ons unlike SOME that bite).
And for a little fun touch, I had to add a cat scratch. To create, I cut with an Exacto Knife then just wiggled and wiggled the knife in the cut to rough it up and give it distressed definition.
Who's on vacation? Anyone going somewhere tropical? Maybe you're like me and dreaming of a beautiful, ocean getaway?
Well, at least the weather here in the Midwest is cooperating for a "tropical" feel, lots of humidity and plenty of heat! But no matter, I will sip a fruity drink in the air conditioning and let my hair frizz and put together a tropical paradise layout.
Ms Luau is a fun layout using Moxxie Paradise Found papers and stickers.
Instead of photos inside the filmstrip, I added small patterned paper. It's a subtle detail that makes a nice border.
I added a lot of clusters, shells, flowers, and these really fun stickers that came with the paper line.
And lastly, the alphas were perfect for using in my title.
Look at these gorgeous, happy women, I will drink pineapple juice to that!
