Christmas Cards

My 2011 Christmas Cards

These are supposed to be my easy cards.  Then I started adding stuff.  The idea was supposed to be a simple layer of DP a stamp and the "25".  But I ended up adding more.  I wanted to stick with Kraft paper and that includes some Kraft Holiday pack by Recollections.  I guess they are still pretty simple.


I made 25 each of greens and reds. 

The "25" is cut using the Winter Woodland cart and layered.  That's 100 numberes cut, layered and popped up on dimentionals.

This vintage Santa stamp is a Recollections set. 

I also picked up a Tim Holtz stamp set and used the Stag and Merry Christmas, stamping right onto the Kraft paper.

I ended up adding ribbon, twine and these cute mutted coloured jingle bells.  I also spritzed the Santa layer with gold and sealed using hairspray.  I gives a pretty shimmer!

My cards are cut at 5x5 and I'm pretty happy how they turned out.  I love the vintage stamps, Kraft papers and little elements.

I squeezed all 50 cards into this little tote!

I hope you had fun making your Christmas card.  These took me about 8 hours to make all 50.  But if you liked it you could make one in about 45 min.

SIX PROJECTS ON A DIME!

Are you looking for some Halloween Decor ideas?  I have a few for you.  These are projects I have been working on for the past couple of weeks.  BANNERS
I made Boo and Beware for my 2 corner windows.  These are cut from Birthday Bash, using Recollections Halloween paper and Stampin Up Halloween Paper.
I made this Tim Holtz Banner, "Trick or Treat".  Hangs over my spooky dining room.  Black sheets are there for the holidays.
Cut from Birthday Bash and the frames/ font are a Sophisticated cut.  I added beads from Walmart and skulls are a $1 store necklace cut up.
This BIG Banner is "Happy Halloween"
The charms are Walmart and the tulle is from an old Halloween costume.  This glitter spiders are a $1 store find.

Happy Halloween!

Altered Halloween Advent Calendar w/ Video

WOW, I think this is my biggest Halloween project yet.  It took me 5 days to complete and I could have kept adding!!!  As you know I adore Halloween and yes I have begun bringing out my Halloween goodies.  Lots of photos in this post and there is so much to see.  So lets get into the project and get you inspired for Halloween!
I was asked by Scrapbooker's Paradise (where I teach) to make one of these Kaiser Craft Shadow Boxes...with a Halloween Theme!!!  Arm twisted and mission accepted.  I am going all Tim on this one! I started by spraying all the pieces with a Hammered Finish in a gun metal grey. The set even comes with numbers;) I used My Minds Eye Happy Haunting paper to create each box with a great pattern paper background.  Then using all my Tim Holtz goodies and $1 Store finds I went to town decorating.  I used various numbers from the rub ons, metal numbers, wooden and those that came with the Shadow Box.   Be sure to dry fit before gluing!  It took me 4 hours to die cut…

Paper Smooches Passport

It's no secret I love journaling of any kind including the Passport die.  Creating little books everywhere I go and with everything I have.

Xyron and Paper Smooches are teaming up this week and a ton of creativity.  Creating pages is essential to journaling and the Notebook Paper Twostamp is perfect for these inserts.  Check it out...


Roll the cover pieces of the Passport Die through the Creative Station, switching out the 5" refill for the 9" refill.  Work one side at a time to quickly adhere Wild Whispers paper.

Apply inside pattern paper, flip and repeat for the exterior paper.

To make things easier I used my new Tonic Studios Stamp Platform.  With all these pages I needed precision stamping for the notebook lines and teeny letters to create "notes".

I don't want plain pages... that's boring.  I inked and stamped the all the letters with antique linen randomly on each page.  Add a little paper detail.  But just a little ;)

Lets stencil because we can…
