12 Tags of Christmas; #10


Tag 10 was a lot of fun!  Although I was a little impatient and took pictures before my ornaments could dry!  I really like this tag...so much I made 2!  But if you want to see my second tag you'll have to check back on December 16-18 for Hop I am in.  It should be AMAZING!


Had to sneak my Jingle in!  If you have been following my version of the 12 Tags of Christmas then you know each tag has at least 1 jingle on it!  I cut a stem from my mini $1 store tree then layered with tinsel, ribbon and the red jingle.  All glued with hot glue.

For my version of BELIEVE I stamped and punched cork, then distressed with a little vintage photo.  I added some gold glitter glue to make it look like icicles.  My banner is hand cut TH music paper, then to get that tattered edges I punched the tips with my Martha Stewart drippy goo punch.  I could have borrowed the banner from my GF but it's the weekend...family time!

For the facets I did see the ones Tim uses.  However I picked up the pack of 48 of thin facets.  I figured I could get a lot more use out of 48 than 12 of them. 


Here's a sneak peak of my Tag 10 variation.  Check back Friday Dec 16th for the whole tag.



 

I really love this tag. Making these little ornaments was so much fun although a little finicky! If you come back on Dec 16th for the Hop I'm in you'll see how I made a tag super personal. I can see you wanting to make some too!

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Last Minute Christmas Card

We are always looking for last minute card ideas.  Here is a great quick card to whip up in no time.  A little paper, embossing powder and of course the 3" disposable sticker maker.  How time flies, can you believe this is my last post for 2017 forXyron.  


With my dies I cut a bunch of paper including super stock for the ornaments.  Create a resist with clear embossing powder for inking.

Here's my favourite part... running my dies through the Xyron 3" Disposable Sticker Maker.  I just feed it like it's hungry.
Run a line of adhesive on the back of the paper for the twine to attach too and again on the chip quotes.  I stamped the sentiment from my stamp set Woodland Winter.

Check out this simple quick card.

Look how pretty my stamp looks here.



Thanks for stopping by and wishing you all a wonderful holiday.

Thank You Xyron

Well what a fun year it has been.  Xyron took me on with no experience and never even owning one.  Thank you to my awesome team and a awesome product to design with.  
The team is designing with their favourite Xyron product and I picked the Sticker Maker.  This handy little machine is perfect for my love of sentiments and letters.  A perfect pairing with my Sizzix Dies.

To create the backgrounds I need a thick cardstock that can take this amount of paint... Super Stock!  I created a colourful base for these wee Alphanumeric Thin letters.  

I lined the little letters up and ran them through my Vagabond.

Each little letters slides into the sticker maker easily.  I add them all one after another pull.  So quick and easy!  

I created the background for the card much the same way as the letters.  Creating a paper ribbon while I was at it.

With the ribbon and bow created I popped the ribbon part through the sticker maker.

Peel and stick.  It's hard to pick one Xyron product.  I often …
