I'M BAAAACK...PARTY BAG

Party On!!!!
 
LOOK, I CAN STILL CRAFT... I'm back from Europe and trying to adjust after an 8 hour time difference!  I'm so tired...
 
It's my son's birthday party this weekend so I had to make some gift bags!  With the help of my GF's...THANK YOU!  I yawned through the whole cutting, embossing and building of them;)
 
These are small bags and fit a pack of gum and $10 gift card, perfect!  For the bag I used Tim Holtz In the Bag die and borrowed the strip die Washer Border for the handle. 

Look what I picked up at 40% off, TH Pocket Envelope...fits gift cards perfectly!  And much prettier than the envelopes you get with a gift card:)

I marked and punched where I wanted the brads to go then added the twine.  For the bottom brad that goes into the pocket you'll need a paper piercer.

I also picked up the Movers and Shapers Cargo Stencil Number set for 40% off.  I LOVE THIS FONT!  My son is turning 11 so I thought this might be fun on the pocket envelopes...if I had more time!

I embossed the front of the bag with the TH Gear folder and layered on the small movers and shapers gears to add some pop!  This ties in with my sons birthday invitations, click HERE to see them.

This bag is compact and fun!

Because I am pressed for time having just returned from Paris.  I opted to simply stamp the pocket envelopes.  Even though I wanted to use the cargo numbers I showed above. 

I used Scrappy Moms Stamps Hooray for Birthday's set, "For You and PARTY" stamps.  Lining them both on my block and stamping with Archival Black.  I love this stamp set!  One of my favorite SMS sets!

In total I made 12 bags with the help of my 2 crafty friends.  It's nice to be home, with my kids, baking and crafting.

A GOOD TIP; Glue one side of the washer border handle until you can fill the bag.  This way you aren't trying to force the goodies in.  Once the bag has been filled simply glue the other side using the sticky red strip tape:0)

Jarred Florals

How's your summer so far?  Me... I am just returning from a long vacation from down south.  So I am probably folding a lot of laundry. TheXyronTeam andACCOare playing all week with staplers and cutters.  Which means anything goes creatively!  I am so thrilled to use their Guillotine Trimmer LiteI don't own one so this is super exciting... 10 papers at one time!  
(all supplies used is linked for your convenience)

Time to crack into my new Flower Jar stamps and Framelits dies and a whole lot of colouring.
Once the colouring was done I added a little touch of dimension to these teeny wildflowers with a stylus and water.  It's my first cut with the Guillotine Trimmer Lite, dang thats sharp.  Even for small cuts.
I ran the stitched circle cut through the Creative Station then used the Create a Sticker for the adorable teeny wildflowers.
The Pondering Words "WONDERFUL" cut is perfectly cut with the Guillotine Trimmer for this 3/4" cut.  I popped it on the edges …

Wanderlust

I am pretty sure I have the "Wanderlust" bug!  I wanted to try something different so I decided to try some texture paste on the cover.  The matboard is tough enough to handle some texture paste.  I used chalk paint and texture paste to decorate my cover instead of paper.


Cut the superstock paper to fir the journal, 8x8 scoring in the centre to create a page.  I used oxides and stenciling to create a dynamic page.
Die cutting on pattern paper for some great elements.  Love the brush and foam for those small dies Especially the Gearhead die!  
See, all those little bits popped right out!  More inking and layering for these pages.  Making life easier with the Creative Station and these smaller detailed dies.
Lets make some trophy's!  I coated them with hammered metal embossing powder and coloured some distress crayons to distress it.
I cut and inked the Heart and Soul flower with more pattern paper.
I love the Ornate Frame #2creating some great vintage elements for this …

Fall Colours

OK, I know, I know we are only half way through summer and already there are fall leaves on my blog!  I really couldn't help myself.  I mean... you know me! This week Xyron and Newton's Nook are teaming up for some... AWESOMENESS!  Of course I had to go for these gorgeous leafy stamps.  Can you imagine these embossed or in an art journal!  So many creative ways to make stuff.

I gathered some goodies including my Tag and Tie to make a Kraft Tag for the sentiment. A little bit of stamping and inking goes a long way.  

I stamped the wee pumpkin from the Falling for You set (linked below) and coloured with Stabilo Woody 3 in 1 pencils.  These are great for watercoloring too.  Yep, it happens from time to time... I fussy cut the pumpkins out.

I stamped the Beautiful Leaves stamp (linked below) with a blend of Oxide Inks.  Stamping again on inky scrap paper with large maple leaf... yep, more fussy cutting.  Oi...

More stamping on the background and then run through the Creative Sta…
