CHA 2014 Idea-ology Samples

Hi friends! Today I'm sharing some samples I made for the Idea-ology booth. 

You know how I love to make Configurations. This was the first project I made and it's one of my favorites too. I was so inspired by the new Wallflower Paper Stash I had to incorporate it into a configuration try. I absolutely love this new paper!! The paper has a vintage feel of corse, with lots of birds, flowers, and butterflies. You'll be glad to know the paper pad comes with 2 sheets of every design. BONUS!! 


The "Journey" at the top is made from the new Letterpress blocks. They were so popular at the show and I'm sure you are going to love them too. I absolutely adore this bird and isn't he perfect next to the nest of eggs. 


 You can see the beautiful and flowers that I cut from the papers. The metal butterfly is from the new Botanical Adornments. 

This Assemblage Clock has a little of everything. The inside of the clock has been lined with birch branches and the outside painted with Black Soot Distress Paint then rubbed off before it dried. To embellish the clock I used the new Alpha Chips, Botanical Adornments, Wallflower Paper Stash, and some old favorites. 

I was so excited when I saw this new Mini Configurations Book. It's a great size measuring at 9" x 6". It's the perfect size for a quick project. 


Here's the inside. Die cuts of the Sea Horse, Starfish and Sand Dollar are from the New Sizzix Alteration Line. Don't you like the little sailor boy and his sister. These are the new Found Relatives, you can make up your own story. They comes in a pack of 24 and there is a great variety of photos, Men, Women, Children and groups.


This is two Cabinet Cards held together with the little Hinges. You could easily add more panels as desired. More Found Relatives, Uncle Bud, Uncle Bob and Uncle Frank, they are having so much fun playing cowboys. 

I'll be back soon with more inspiring samples!
Thanks for all the awesome comments!

I have a few Idea-ology bags to give away so be sure to leave a comment and I'll pick two lucky winners on Monday the 27th at noon pacific standard time. Good luck! 

Thanks for stopping by!

  13. Love the configuration boxes, Richelle! I thought I'd try my hand at using an old printer's drawer for a big configuration box, but not very easy as the "boxes" don't come out and it's hard to treat each space differently. I think I'll be putting a couple of the Idea-ology Config Boxes on my wish list!! Thank you for the wonderful inspiration! XOXO-Shari

  27. So nice to have you home. The new releases are so tempting, I want the whole lot. I always love what you come up with. You are the Empress of Configurations! I love seahorses, so it was lovely to see what you made with them. I'm crazy for letterpress blocks, vintage photos, cabinet cards. Love what you've done with each one. I'd love to see what you would do with the new folios. Can't wait for you to come teach us a class.

  28. Richele...it was such an honor to get to meet you at CHA. I have been such a fan of your work for such a long time. Everything you create has such a loving touch to it. There is such a feminine vintage quality in your art and I love it all! The pieces you are sharing on this blog post are stunning. I could have just looked at them for hours at the show. So much detail. It's like Tim designed all of his Ideaology and recent paper stashes just for you. You have used them to perfection to create such gorgeous art. I'm in awe. :) <3 Candy
