12 Tags of Christmas, #8


 I had no idea when I saw the first tag I would end up making them all.  I'm posting my tag late due to some commitments on my blog, however I am running on time for getting them finished.  I really love Tag #8.  I love seeing all the layers and Steampunks.  I did try combining the Steampunk elements with a Christmas feel.  I do love to layer, layer, layer!

I had some vintage tags on hand and stamped a little Christmas stamp on it with some distressing it. I had access to the gold dauber but not the copper and silver.  So, I embossed!  Hey...it still works!  I sanded the gears then added distressing stain to give it a worn look.  I just picked up these cute brads to connect the hands and adhere it to the washer I used.  It's all layered in there.

A little piece of tinsel is tied to a silver jingle attached to a wee light.  This little white embellishment I have had for years.  I sanded it down to help the ink to set then heat set it.  This little stamp fits perfect!

I stamped this TH Santa on chipboard (ok cereal box) then popped in some distrssing inks to make Santa pop.  I used Snow Cap for the white of Santa's beard applying it with my finger tip.  I really like him like this.

Santa pops with Stickled holly and berries.  The "Joy" I stamped and punched.  It's all glazed with Diamond Glaze.  The clock grungeboard I inked with Pumise Stone then added a little Silver acylic paint.  It gives it a pretty shimmer from under all these layers.

I made 2 tags and this is my other one.  The only difference is I added this cute little bottle full if silver beads.  A pretty embellishment for this holiday tag!

Tags #9 and 10 are done.  My tag 10 made my Mom Cry when I showed her.  Ahhhh:)  I'm am totally sad that tomorrow is the last day to make a tag!

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 …

It's a Wrap

It's here... finally the Book Club 2 is releasing this month.  The Inspiration Team is sharing their Book Club 2 projects all month long to inspire you.  We are so excited to share the projects we made for Creativation.  This new release is perfect for all things journaling.
I was sent patent leather in blue.  I threaded some white elastic and through the Wrap Journal and added a wee patch of Velcro.  I decided to put the shiny side  and the more muted blue on the outside for a suede look.

I picked up this little note book at the $1 store and it's a perfect fit.  I added the 

Look... Journaling Words.


I even stamped the Wrap Journal on the outside.





Throw in a couple pages.


A few pockets...

Get ready to travel.

 Finally so excited to share this Wrap Journal I have been holding on to for 6 months.  I love this new Journal and it's a great addition to your journals.  Be sure to check out all the new accessory cuts to deck out your journaling.

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...
