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 …

Simply Spring

Just a simple card with stuff I had laying around or partially started.  What could be more easy than that.  Sometimes you just have to dig through your stuff.  Click the links below to see what I used.

You are the best... using Ranger's new Letter It stamps.

A little mixed media die cutting.

I went all inky then added a coat of clear rock candy distress glitter.  If only the shimmer came through.

Love these flowers.

A grungy little edge.

This is a simple little card with a couple of easy techniques.  We have so much snow so I guess I just need some cheery spring.

Watercoloring with Butterflies & Oxides

The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team has been sharing tutorials all month long.  I do have a video tutorial for this card but it won't be read for awhile.  Hey, it happens.  I at least have a couple of photo's until the whole video is posted on Creative Scrapbooker Magazines website.

Loving the new Oxide inks especially as we approach those soft easter pallets.

A little stamping.

I know it's not a box or cool journal.  One of my favourite dies is the Birds & Butterflies thinlit.  Yep, there are pretty little dies perfect for card making too.

I love the intricate butterfly to layer over.

A simple card and no it's not even a journal.

I will share the video when it's all done and posted.  I will even embed it in the post too.
Onto next month...
