Counting the days – Perpetual Calendar created with Ranger Ink Emboss IT Products

We are super excited to share another product collaboration with our friends at Ranger Ink. Ranger Ink is known for their innovative product offerings of ink, tools and craft products. Click here to see the cool stuff they created on their blog with our Real Wood Paper.

We paired our Real Cherry and Birch Wood paper with their amazing embossing powders and embossing inks to create this perpetual December calendar. We love how rich the metallic embossing powders appear on the Cherry Wood paper. The rich warm tones of the embossing fits perfectly with the rich warm tones of the Cherry Wood paper.

We randomly lined the edge of the Cherry Wood paper with Ranger Emboss IT ink and pens. We used the clear Emboss IT pen to add a little spot detailing. Wanting even more texture, we added a few pearly accents with random dots of Liquid Pearls.

Create your own Perpetual Countdown calendar. Simply print this perpetual-calendar onto your favorite finish of Real Wood Paper. Cut out, embellish and assemble as you like. Happy December!

Pretty Peacock cards with Heartfelt Creations

The sentiments are these cards are genuine and heartfelt. We hope you are having a wonderful day.

A few weeks ago we shared a beautiful card using our Cherry Wood paper as the card base. Today we have a couple more cards using our Real Wood Papers. These cards use our Birch Wood Papers and Birch Wood Tape.

We used a few more favorite products from Heartfelt Creations to create these two cards. Heartfelt Creations has a couple lovely cling stamp sets featuring peacocks. You can find information about those here.

We used our Real Birch Wood tape to line the bottom of the peacock card, shown below. We added a line of Prills to create a finished divider between the tape and the card stock and love the results.

Our Real Wood Sheets come in three sizes; 12 x 12, 8.5 x 11, and 6 x 12. These papers come in four finishes; Birch, Cherry, Rustic Birch and Rustic Cherry.

Baker’s Twine and Birch Wood – Mini Mason Jar

Flowers are blooming! We love bringing a little spring indoors and making little reminders that spring really is upon us. Little flower vases are a great way to showcase spring in your home. It doesn’t take much to fill a tiny jar. Snip a few little twigs from a blossoming tree or pull a sprig or two from a flower arrangement.

We decorated these small teal mason jars using black and white Baker’s Twine and our Real Birch Wood papers. Both items are available in our online store. The mini mason jar was purchased at A.C. Moore.

Notes for the New Year

Happy New Year! 2017 here we come. We find the start of a new year to be so exciting. For us, it’s a fresh start full of opportunities, goals and DIY projects! We are starting this year off with a simple DIY project anyone can create.

We created this pocket site notebook using an ordinary paper notebook and Real Birch Wood paper. It is the perfect size for jotting down quick notes, ideas and future plans. Pocket size notebooks are super easy to carry. Adding Real Birch Wood paper to the cover makes this notebook much sturdier, and we love how finished this book looks.

Instructions:
1. Measure notebook. Our notebook is 3″ x 5″.
2. Cover notebook with Real Birch Wood paper. We decided to cover the front and just a portion of the back of our notebook. Cut a piece of Birch Wood paper to 5″ x 5″.
3. Remove adhesive liner from Birch Wood paper. Open notebook up flat with cover facing up, line up and adhere Birch Wood paper. Trim overlap if needed.
4. Embellish your notebook. We used an alphabet stencil and texture paste to create the raised word ‘NOTES’. If you want to add the year, stamp 2017 in grey ink onto notebook cover.
