Holiday Wine Bottle Tags

Every year I make a handful of goodies for my husband to take to work.  One of the final things I get to make is wine bottle tags.  Every year he gives his managers a bottle of wine and a gift card.  With all the new goodies I learned while making the 12 Tags of Christmas.  I have a bunch of cuts I had made while borrowing these dies.  I had 15 tags to make so I made 3 styles of tags, 5 each.

Tag #1.
This is my take on Tag 12

This WISH tag is all in gold.  I picked this big snowflakes up at the $1 Store.  They were silver so I glittered them gold. I cut WISH at 3/4" using Sophisticated in gold then layered a shadow of black.  I used the shadow cut for the gold, so I needed to repeat in black and offset the gold.  To make it pop I added diamond glaze on the letters. 
I made this little tissue flower using gold tissue...no stamping this time.  I picked up gold tinsel garland for a $1 and stapled it to the bottom of the tag.  It even has little gold starts.  I hot glued this antiqued gold brad to the flower then glued again to the tag.

I cut my tags using the TH Big Tag Die.  I picked up 100 Manila file folders for under $8...that's 4 tags per folder.  I stamped the tag with my french script stamp.  Then stamped white tissue with my music note background stamp.  I modge podged the tag, then layered the tissue over the tag.  Using my heat gun I dried the tag, then added Rock Candy to give the tag a vintage cracked look.  Then I added distress ink Tea Dye to the edges.

TAG #3.
This tag is a take on Tag 4 and Tag 6.

This tag has a lot going on.  I sprayed adhesive to my tag, layered tin foil then ran the tag through my Snow Flurries embossing folder.  I painted with acrylic paint, dried with my heat gun then distressed with some sandpaper.  Gently scuff the paint off the snowflakes to expose the snowflakes.  NOEL is cut in silver shimmer paper at 3/4" using Sophisticated.  I added diamond glaze to the letters for a pop.

This snowman die I borrowed and did a ton of cuts in white, Kraft and cereal boxes.  The snowman is inked in distress inks, faded jeans and broken china on white.  I ran picket fence stain over and finished with Rock Candy crackle.  A silver jingle and silver pipe cleaner finishes off the snowman.

For $1 I picked up this silver tinsel garland and have used a ton of it over the past weeks.  I stamped it onto the bottom of the tag, then layered some silver mesh ribbon with a silver snowflake brad in the bottom corner.  It's very subtle.

Tag #3.
This tag is a take on Tag 9 and Tag 10 and a little of Tag 7.

I went a little simpler...ok not really.  The tag was stamped in Versamark and clear embossed.  I inked with fire brick, Forrest moss and peeled paint exposing my stamp and making it pop.  Again, I borrowed Snow Tree die, inked it and layered twice with UTEE giving the tree a thick glassy look.

To fill the corner I used my new Festive Greenery die for some holy leaves.  I borrowed the pine cone (I suck at making them) as my GF just got it.  I really loves these little cones...if only I was better at making them!  I cut a little sprig of greenery from my mini fake tree and wrapped some of these berries from garland I picked up for $1. 

Had to make these little ornaments again.  The paper I am using is from TH Seasonal pack.  I guess I keep picking the more muted images as they don't pop too much!

For added embellishment I used my SU Antique Brads to hold the twine for the ornament.  Then added this glass mini ornament to the ribbon.

I also needed to add a spot to hold a GC.  But I didn't want to take away from the front of the tag.  I cut my mini Kraft bags down to 3 3/4", then punching with my scallop punch a little peaker spot to see the VISA GC.  To keep it simple I stamped in vintage photo this TH deer and clear embossed.  Tieing it off with some twine.  Then stamping my OH SCRAP stamp...hehe:)

Here are all the bottles and their tags together.

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!
Candles
Cheap-o-la...You can make this on a budget...promise!  I picked these candelabras up from Michaels for $12 at 50% off.  I bought them on a day they there was an additional 25% off so in the end they were less than…

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…
