12 Tags of 2012- February

Finally I got my 1st tag done for 2012.  

 As you may recall I don't have a ton of Tim stuff, infact I had no stamps, folder or die required for this tag.  Here is my version of Tims first tag of 2012...plus a bonus tag.  I'll show you how I made this tag work with almost no goodies used in Tim's tag. 

I don't have the cupid die used.  I went to the $1 Store and found these jelly cupids.  Not what I wanted but I thought I would give it a shot.  I traced the jelly's onto a cereal box and because they are jelly they kinda do ok sticking.


I found these metal hearts at the same time and thought they would be good to use instead of the honeycomb.  It was Valentines day so the LSS was out of red honeycomb.  I used a page from the dictionary and tore off stripes.  I cut the hearts by hand using a cereal box, then used spray adhesive to apply the ruffled paper. 


Instead of the border die, I used scrap ribbon.  But really any boarder punch will do if you don't have the Vintage Lace die. 

My 2nd Variation

On both tags I stamped a background stamp, SU Tres Chic inked with Snow Cap.  I embossed both tags with Elegant Bouquet embossing folder and then sprayed with a pearl.  I kept the tags similar.  The ruffled heart wasn't as nice as the other one as I was learning on this heart.  But it turned out OK.

For this sentiment I wanted to use "Love Stuck" my SMS Crazy for You set.  I wanted to make mini banners.

Here are my 2 tags together.

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 …

NEW Make Art Blendable Dye Inks

I am so excited to be apart of the new Wendy Vecchi "Make Art Blendable Dye Ink" release.  These inks have the robust colouring of the Archivals however you can blend them!  Even combining colours to make new ones.   Ohhh delicious! 

Watch the quick video below how I blended.

Ohhhh they create stunning colours.

I even dipped my ribbon for some colour!

The butterflies are an intense rainbow of colour.

Each colour is blended over the other creating hues of other colours.

I kept the tag simple so the inks could shine with these vibrant inks.

Make Art Blending Dye Inks are a must!  Thanks for taking a look.

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...
