Summer Tag- Corkboard Tags


Altered Corkboard Summer Tag
SUMMER IS COMING...and this is Tag #2 in my Four Seasons Tags.  The Summer Tag was my first of the 4 tags I made.  It's packed with seashells, sand, weathered wood and balloons.  I kept the theme going with the Rickety House Die and fence. This time making it look more like a planked house, stained with weathered wood and picket fence.

I made these wee balloons using Honeybomb paper found at my LSS, The Scrap Yard.  I went in for inspiration because finding "pumpkins" at this time of year isn't easy.  You'll have to check back tomorrow to see pumpkins.  Well, I found it there with the help of the owner, Lori whom also happens to be Ranger Certified!  The things I'm learning.  She got me on this Honeycomb paper and I think I'm hooked! 

  I added some tea stained cheesecloth as netting, layered some alcohol inked seashells and golden stars.  With the addition of this retro coke bottle cap, it has a summery feel.  Hmmm...I could have used a Corona cap too...

Another bottle cap, with a 1" punched out sand paper circle and layered with this inked sand dollar charm.

A little added sand paper along the bottom, crackled picket fence paint and all these breezy embellishments makes me think I can smell the ocean!

With Tag #2 down we are geared up for tag #3 Fall/ Halloween Tag tomorrow!  My favorite Tag!

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

New Release- Stamp and Photo Storage

All month the Inspiration Team for Eileen Hull is thrilled to be showing off the her newest Book Club Collection.  Here's my little glimpse at the Stamp and Photo Storagedie.  There is nothing this decent size die can't do... or hold!  In this case Letter's to Santa.  I even combined the Trinket Box & Frame to frame out Santa.


I stamped the Woodland Winter Santa designed by yours truly onto watercolor paper and used my Scribble sticks to add a little color.
I cut a piece of clear packaging and ran it through my little Xyron Disposable Sticker Makerto create a cover for my Santa.  Perfection!

I colored up the Floral Arch and Words arch to attach to the bottom and top and attached.  I used some Distress Woodgrain Cardstock to wrap my Stamp and Photo Storage. I cut Super StockCardstock to fit inside.  Inking and stamping like crazy all tied off with some postal twine.  The Correspondence Stamp Set is perfect.


I mounted the Trinket Box & Frame to the Stamp and Storage…

Pumpkin Parts Thanksgiving w/ Xyron

While my Thanksgiving may be over it is coming soon south of the border.

Xyronis getting ready for holiday season and what better way then with the Pumpkin Parts die cut.  This easy card is layered with paper and ink to create a festive pumpkin card.  The team will be sharing their fall inspired projects all week so be sure to pop by for lots of inspiration.



The Create a Sticker is great for all the smaller pieces to layer and quickly put together.  For a quick background stamp the craft sheet with Distress Oxides, spray and drag.
I cut Thanksgiving from the Sentiment Words Thinlit and attached with the Sticker Maker.Fall Foliage has this little hay die cut that I added to the bottom of the pumpkin attached the Xyron Mega Runner.
I clipped a couple of the Twisted pieces for a little green for the top of the pumpkin.





Don't miss any of the inspiration with the rest of the Xyron Team.
