Short On Time??! Try this quick Prima Rose Quartz Pocket Journal!!

Welcome to the weekend everybody!! I know this weekend is Father Day and that means a little less time in the art studio and more time spent with the men in your life, so today, I have a pocket journal that I put together quickly using items that you can find in the Reneabouquets.com and Reneabouquets Etsy Shops. I used the Prima Rose Quartz 12 x 12 Paper Pad and the cut out elements, along with the pretty papers in the kit, made it a snap to put together this piece that is perfect for journaling, adding small photos to and tucking in your FAV memories.

I created a 6 Inch Wide x 9 Inch Tall Pocket by folding the paper in 1/2 and then cutting down the length. I cut the front portion at a diagonal, and glued the bottom and right hand edge to form a pocket. I added on a layer of Rose Gold Lace, and then took a piece of the paper and did some edge tearing layered that on then I took the sentiment piece from the paper, and did some edge tearing on it and layered it on. I added a Bee Clock Trinket to the top, tied some ribbon through it and popped on a 

I then added some soft feathers,  Silver Leaves,  a Prima Rose Quartz Provenza Flower, and a  Dusty Pink Mini Rose. I added a set of 2 of the Tiny Treasures Organza Butterflies to make everything just pop!!

Here you can see all the tuck in pieces that I created from the sentiment page in the collection, adding on hand dyed seam binding ribbons, Dusty Pink Mini Roses, and some Sweetheart Rhinestone & Pearl Buttons to create: 
1- Small Booklet
2- Double Sided Tags
2- Large Double Sided Tags

Making something beautiful doesn't have to take forever, especially when you use lots of layers and add in those Reneabouquets "Beautiful With An Edge" touches!! I hope that you find some time to enjoy Father's Day with the wonderful men in your life. I will be spending mine with my husband and son, pigging out and designing together! Hugs ~Renea

I am a country girl at heart and I love creating pieces that reflect my country chic side. Every since I got the Prima Rose Quartz Papers in my Reneabouquets shops, I have been dying to use them for this style, and I finally got a chance over the Mother's Day weekend for some scrappy time and created this layout.

I started with a base layer of  the Prima Rose Quartz Paper, and then took a second sheet, cut it down, and distressed the edges. I tore another piece of the paper and added it, then created a photo matte from some of the papers, added that and then added the photo.

Next, I did some water distressing and pleated the paper on one side, tucking some Sheer Romance White Lace underneath and then topping it with some Horse Shoe Die Cuts, and 
a small rose from the Soft Pink Roses & Leaves Flower Set.

I cut the paper at the bottom of the layout, so that I could do some paper curling to expose the base layer and tucked in more of the Sheer Romance White Lace.
To add in some visual interest and texture, I used a stencil, and Ranger Texture Paste to create a burlap pattern in random places on the layout, spritzed the stenciling with Tim Holtz Brushed Pewter Spray Stain, and then used the heat gun to raise the texture paste and dry in the stain.

I took a piece from the Blue Fern Page Chains Chipboard Set, and inked it with Ranger Big Emboss It Clear Ink , heat embossed it with some powder and then popped some large, flat back pearls on the ends for accent.  I created a flower layer using a Petaloo Burlap Sunflower, various pieces from the Reneabouquets Soft Pink Roses & Leaves Flower Set, and  Ivory Wild Roses & Gardenias Set,

 and some paper rolls wrapped with twine that I created from pieces that I saved when I did my paper tearing on the layers.

I created a second flower layer at the top using a Prima Rose Quartz Provenza Flower, another Petaloo Burlap Sunflower, and a piece and some leaves from the Soft Pink Flower Set, and then tucked in a twine bow. I then topped the piece off with some of my handcrafted Frosty Pink Dragonflies for added dimension and texture.

Here is a side shot that gives you a peek at all the dimension that was created with the papers, techniques and RB Products!! I love to create pieces that have elements that "pop" off the page and I choose products for my shops that make getting this look a breeze!!

I hope you have enjoyed your look at my Country Girl heart, and I hope you have a beautiful week that is full of piece and a little "Stillness" of your own!! Hugs ~Renea

Shabby Abby Ballerina Book Box With Tag Album

I love ballet themed work! Ballet is one of those things that encompass all that is beautiful and graceful and reminds us that with hard work our dreams can come true. Out of my love for dance, I created a new set of Reneabouquets Die Cuts called Shabby Abby Ballerina Die Cuts  I drew them from my imagination, colored them in gorgeous, shabby colors, and brought them to life for all of my  ballet loving customers and the following is a Book Box and Tag Album that I created using them:

I started with a Graphic 45 Ivory Tag Album & Book Box that I layered with layers of Blue Fern Attic Charm Paper 

I then added on some My Romantic Heart Lace, and a Prima Montchamp Resin Frame to the book box cover. 

Next, I added some Pink Chunky Glitter Glass to the inside of the frame for a soft shimmery look.

I added Abby to the frame and popped on some of my Tiny Treasures Shabby Pink Roses Dragonflies for added dimension. I added the ballet slippers from the set onto the top corner of my box,

and then added the Graceful piece from the set onto the bottom.

To finish off the Shabby look on the Box top, I added some cheesecloth for softness and texture along with some Pink & White Roses & Gardenias, and a mini rose from the Pink & Ivory Mini Roses Set.

For the Book Binding side of the box, I covered it with music note tissue paper that I inked with Tim Holtz Tea Dye, and  Tattered Rose Ink , and then folded the remaining part of the lace over it and attached it with clear glue.

For the "Pages" of the book, I used Ranger Texture Paste, and ran a comb through it while it was wet, and then let it dry and inked the pages with tea dye ink for a beautiful, shabby look.

I took the tag album that comes with the book box and covered the tags with the Attic Charm Papers that I used on the book box, and some other papers that matched. For the cover tag, I added Tattered Pink Tulle, some resin pieces, another Graceful Piece from the Die Cut Set, along with seam binding and trims that I topped with a Marie Antoinette Button.

This is the backside of the 1st tag and the front of the 2nd tag that I made a pocket and covered with Rose Crown Lace and then tucked in some sweet little tags that I made from the Attic Charm papers.

This is the backside of the 2nd Tag that I added a Sweet Heart Applique to as well as some roses from the Pink & White Roses & Gardenias Mulberry Paper Flower Set, and the Pink & Ivory Mini Roses Set. The cover of the 3rd tag has a sweet ballerina resin, and some Crochet Cluny Lace #002.

And this is the backside of the 3rd Tag, that has some of the Crochet Cluny Lace #002

I finished out the back of the book box with some of the tissue paper, painted it randomly with some Tim Holtz Rock Candy Crackle Paint , and then inked it to bring out the crackle finish. The book is held closed with a little clip and some hand dyed seam binding.

Thanks for stopping by for my blog post!! I hope you have enjoyed my shabby chic project!! I encourage you to find the time to create something "Beautiful With An Edge" all your own. Creating is so good for the soul!! Hugs ~Renea

Reneabouquets~Born To Be A Star Graphic 45 Vintage Hollywood Pocket Journal

  When I got the new Graphic 45 Vintage Hollywood Paper Pad in the Reneabouquets.com and Reneabouquets Etsy Shop, I was dying to get to scrap with it!! I just love those bold colors mixed with the black and creams. I decided to do one of my FAV off the page projects, a Sewn Pocket Journal:

I started with a Sewn Pocket Journal Base, and inked it with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Ink. I cut the papers down to fit the front and back and layered those on, inking the distressing and inking the edges with the same ink.

Next, I added on some Black Doily Lace , took a Blue Fern Small Roman Clock Chipboard and emboss inked it with some Ranger Big Emboss It Ink and embossed the clock with some gold embossing powder, and then added some Black Microbeads for textures. I then cut an image from the papers and let the clock piece "frame" it. I created a flower cluster using the Large Rose from the Ivory Mulberry Paper Wild Roses, Gardenias & Leaves Set, and a Small Rose from the 

To add my sentiment "Born To Be A Star" in, I took a Baroque Metal Frame, and cut the first part of the Sentiment out and added it to it, then added on some crystals that matched the papers, and then cut the Star along with the Graphic from the papers, added a large crystal and added that to the bottom corner of the clock.

I then cut some of the Hollywood Stamps from the papers folded those and then took a Tarnished Brass, Metal Clip Bookmark With Cabochon, cut a piece from the papers and added that to the glass dome, and used the clip to attach the stamps to the pocket.

Here you can see all the tuck ins that I created to go inside the Pocket, that one can use to journal, and add small moments to. They include:
2-Large Double Sided Tags with Seam Binding Bows and Vintage Peacock Brooch Accents
2- Medium Double Sided Pieces

2-Smaller Double Sided Pieces
1-Folded, Double Sided Booklet 
1-Double Sided Stamp Strip

And this is the Back Side that is finished out in matching, distressed and inked, papers.

I just love creating these pieces, and I hope that you have enjoyed my walk through of this one!!
