SMS Valentines Blog Hop and Release

The Scrappy Moms Stamps DT is hopping with "LOVE" on the mind just in time for Valentines.  You have finally made it to the end and I hope along the way you have some great inspiration for your special Valentine.  If you are just arriving on my Blog you'll want to start fresh over at the Boss Lady Melanie's  Blog.  If you have hopped and made it all the way to the end then you should be arriving from Trish's Blog.

I made some Valentines treat bags for my Kids, complete with little shovels.  My set of "Crazy for You" didn't arrive in time:(  I know sad.  However, it is a Valentine's Hop so I used my Love Notes and Dancing Circles sets.

I used the #2 tags to tie around each shovel and stamped this sentiment from Love Notes.  I punched my MS heart punch (the edge one) with these teeny hearts then glued them on the tag.

For this tag I used the "I Love You" sentiment from Dancing Circles, punched and added button with Twine.  Pretty!

For the last tag I used a gear from the Tim Holtz die and popped up the #14 stamp.  Then attached my XOXO sentiment from Love Notes.

For all the tags I stamped a Frech Script in versa mark, embossed and inked with the distress inks Fire Brick, Victorian Velvet and Spun Sugar.

Look how adorable this set is.  I cannot wait to get using it.  I already have some projects lined up waiting for it to arrive!

Thanks for hopping with the DT.  These ladies are so talented I'm sure you have some great ideas!  To check out this new stamp set and all the rest click HERE.  There you'll find all the SMS Stamp line, blocks, twine and baggies!

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 …

Halloween Decor- Pennies a project


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!
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…
