Wallet/Notebook Using Rose Quartz

This is a project I have been wanting to make for a while, I just had to work out all the measurements. You know how I hate to measure lol.

Here are all the measurements and please watch the video, link is below.

Cardstock 5x12" score on 12" side at 4, 4 1/8, 4 1/4, 4 3/8, 4 1/5, 4 5/8, 4 3/4, 4 7/8, 5 so every 1/8".
Then go to 9 inch and score from 9" to 10" the same way at every 1/8".

Round corners.

Pockets 2@ 2 1/2x5
Closure 2@2x1

Round corners on one pocket just on one end as shown in the video, to match the corners rounded on the base.
Round corners on one end of the closure after you glue them together or before it doesn't matter.

Mats for inside are 2@ 2 1/4x4 3/4"
                               1@1 3/4x4 3/4"

Outside mats are 2 @ 3 3/4x4 3/4
                            1 @ 1 3/4x4 3/4"

Your eyelets will go right in the middle of the score lines on the end with the largest flap, as shown in the video. Put two eyelets on each end about 1/2" from edge.

Put one eyelet in the closure if you are closing it with string or stretchy cord. If not then just use

Your paper for the inside signatures are cut at 7"x4" and scored at 3 1/5" on the 7" side. Fold in half and put in as show in the video.

Hope this helps.

The video is uploading now.

Photo Folio

Start with 3 pieces of cardstock cut at 6x6"

Score two of the pieces on one end at 1/4" and 1/2"

Cut two side pieces of cardstock at 5 3/4"x 3 3/4" 
Scor both on one of the long sides at 1/4" and 1/2"

Take one of the 6x6 pieces that you have scored and measure up from the end you scored on 3" and make a mark. do this on both sides. Then go to the top (opposite the scored end) and mark your center at 3". From you 3" center mark come out 1/2" on either side. this will make a 1" top piece. Now with a ruler join the 1/2" marks that you just made and the 3" side marks. Cut on this line to create the flap. Do this on both sides. 

Now assemble by taking your center peice, the 6x6 piece you didn't score, and place the edge on the 1/4" score line of the other two pieces. Use a double sided take to join together the top piece with the and the bottom. Then take your side pieces the 5 3/4" and center them on your middle section on both sides. 

All that is left to do now is mat and decorate. 

The tutorial video is here:

Enjoy and share with us on our FB page group.

Shirt Gift Bag Made From Regular Envelope

Take any size envelope that larger ones are better. Glue the flap shut with extra adhesive. Then cut a small piece off one of the ends, just to create an opening. Now score at 1/4" or 1/2" depending on how large of a side gusset you want. Score the same on all three sides. Do not score on the side with the opening. Reinforce your score lines and burnish. 

Now open the bag and put your had in using your fingers to push out and create the bottom. You will end up with two ear like pieces on either end, these will need to be glued down with a strong adhesive. This creates the bottom of the bag. 

On the sides push in on the center score mark creating the gusset. 

Now on the top where you cut the piece off to create the opening in the envelope, measure down 3/4" and draw a line. Then from either side measure in on that line you just drew and make a mark at 1 1/4". Cut on the line that goes across just up to the 1 1/4" marks you made. Do this on both sides. You are creating the part for the collar. Fold down each piece to create your collar and glue together. Don't glue down on the shirt part until you put your tie on.

Bunny Love

You will need a piece of paper 7x12 inches.
Start by scoring on the 7" side at 1" and 6"
Turn to 12" side and score at 4 1/2" and 6 1/2"

Round the top side up (the longest side from the score line) use anything to round it, a plate, cup etc.
Then round the bottom side down, so that you have a mirror image of the top. 

Cut the slits at the 4 1/2"x and 6 1/2" just up to the vertical score line. Take out a small wedge, so that it folds better. Put your adhesive on the flaps and close them up. You will have just enough paper to close the bottom and then just slant the side pieces in, to make the top of the box a little smaller than the bottom. 

The circles that I used is 2 1/4" for the bottom of the bunny, 1" scallop for the tail. And 1 3/4 oval for the feet with a 1 1/5" oval for the bottom of the feet (the pink part)

Then just decorate as you want to make a cut bunny love give box. 

Have fun! E

My Personal Experience With Essentials Oils

As a lot of you know we have teamed up with doTerra and have started our journey in using Essential Oils.

I have researched natural oils and their uses for years and believe me there are thousands of pages of information out there. Some true and some not so true. Just like there are thousands of different companies out there that sell them. 

I wanted a pure oil, no additives, nothing artificial, 100% pure. The only company I found that has this guarantee was doTerra. I still didn't jump into anything right away. I read everything that I found on them. And everything I could find on the oils and personal experiences. This is how you determine if there is a possibility that these oils will work for you. 

So in this weekly post I will be guiding you on my journey with doTerra oils. My personal experience, if it works for me, what I use it for, how I mix the oils if I do. Everything from leg cramps to hair care. This will be my own opinion, even though I am teamed up with them, I will still always give my honest opinion. 

My first weeks experience and what I used: 

Again as a lot of you know I have been fighting a terrible sinus infection since New Year's Day. I have taken antibiotics and over the counter meds and still I was sick.
I received my first package of Essential Oils on Monday, Jan 9th. In the package I had peppermint, lavender, eucalyptus, onGuard, and my diffuser. I immediately started with 2 drops of the eucalyptus which I knew was good for breathing and the effects of sinus pressure. I ran the diffuser 4 hours that night and about 8 hours the next day. Well I can tell you my sinuses started draining. All the "stuff" that had been in my head for nine days was finally coming out! The pressure and headache was easing up!! I was so thankful, I could breathe again! This is just my first day. After using for a week. I now have a clear head and no headaches. I am so thankful. 

Below I will list the products I ordered first and the items I have been using. Each week I will give you a new product and my own testimony on the use. I hope this helps someone out there who is on the fence about oils. 

Essential Oils is the most common thing in the world. It is natural (if you buy the right kind) and has been used for thousands and thousand of years for healing and good health.

Just click the photos to shop or pricing.
