12 Tags of Christmas; #12


It's the final tag for Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of Christmas.  It was really inspiring to make these tags and honestly when I started I had no idea I would do all 12...until I got to tag 4.  I really love as a crafter to layer with paper and goodies.  So this tag was perfect for me.

Making these paper flowers was so fun as I have never made them before.  My GF and I hit the $1 Store for TISSUE to re-create this tag.  I stamped a music note stamp to silver tissue for this tag then added an antique brad.  I attached tinsel and trimmed it then used my MS Holly punch on MS glitter paper for the layered border.

Not a big fan of the cherub that was used so I was on the hunt ($1 store) for somthis that would fit.  For $1 I picked up 2 of these prancing deer.  Now they were cold but a little spray adhesive and silver glitter and now I have a pretty deer.  Some of the gold shows through and adds a pretty look to the deer.


"ALL IS CALM" I printed on my computer and cut out then popped up.  I stamped the tag then used some white tissue, stamped this music stamp on it with Archival black then used modge posge to glue it on the tag.  The script I stampd on the tag shows through.

I didn't have the die for the layer behing the deer.  So using the lid off my Scrabble box we hand cut the image.  I then painted some acrylic blueish paint I had left over from my kids Nutcracker project. 

The light catches the glittler from the WISH, deer and ribbon I used.  I once again used my $1 Store silver jingle earrings and attached it at the bottom of the tag.  Couldn't miss adding that final jingle.







Be sure to pop in Friday for a Christmas Hop I am in.  There, I will have a couple more variations of tags I made and gave away.

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 …
