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 …

Thank You Xyron

Well what a fun year it has been.  Xyron took me on with no experience and never even owning one.  Thank you to my awesome team and a awesome product to design with.  
The team is designing with their favourite Xyron product and I picked the Sticker Maker.  This handy little machine is perfect for my love of sentiments and letters.  A perfect pairing with my Sizzix Dies.

To create the backgrounds I need a thick cardstock that can take this amount of paint... Super Stock!  I created a colourful base for these wee Alphanumeric Thin letters.  

I lined the little letters up and ran them through my Vagabond.

Each little letters slides into the sticker maker easily.  I add them all one after another pull.  So quick and easy!  

I created the background for the card much the same way as the letters.  Creating a paper ribbon while I was at it.

With the ribbon and bow created I popped the ribbon part through the sticker maker.

Peel and stick.  It's hard to pick one Xyron product.  I often …

Last Minute Christmas Card

We are always looking for last minute card ideas.  Here is a great quick card to whip up in no time.  A little paper, embossing powder and of course the 3" disposable sticker maker.  How time flies, can you believe this is my last post for 2017 forXyron.  


With my dies I cut a bunch of paper including super stock for the ornaments.  Create a resist with clear embossing powder for inking.

Here's my favourite part... running my dies through the Xyron 3" Disposable Sticker Maker.  I just feed it like it's hungry.
Run a line of adhesive on the back of the paper for the twine to attach too and again on the chip quotes.  I stamped the sentiment from my stamp set Woodland Winter.

Check out this simple quick card.

Look how pretty my stamp looks here.
