Dashing through the Snow Holiday Tag #1

I've spent the past month working really hard on bunch of holiday goodies.  And since I know you all are gearing up for some Holiday crafting there's no time like the present to start posting. 
 
This is tag is easily the simplest tag I've made but I really love it.  You can use any inks for the back ground but I used TH Forest Moss, Peeled Paint and Crushed Olive.  Blend the inks, splatter some water on the tag and finish off with some gold in the Mini Misters! 
 
I used a whole bunch of dies including the new TH Tree Line die all cut on Grunge Board, but carve up some cereal boxes works too.  I cut the Movers and Shapers Mini Jalopy and mounted the Mini Pine Tree on top.  I tied it on the Jalopy with some twine, a gold star and some white glitter glue for snow. 

 
You know how TH brings out these charms for the holiday's...well...I was too early.  But the everyday charms work too.  I stamped some snowflakes using Stampin Up Whisper White Craft Ink randomly along the top.
 
 
Rock Candy Crackle is generously applied to all my die cuts.  Then along the bottom a Small piece of cotton ball for snow.  This makes it look fluffy and light. 

 
This tag was all because I really wanted to stamp my Tall Trees stamp.  I just love this stamp. 

 
Watch for more Christmas Tags in the coming weeks.  These have all been made for upcoming Christmas Parties.  Every year I make something for the staff where my husband works to giveaway. Click HERE to see last years Gift Giveaway.
 
And watch for next week when I show the whole gift put together for the All Things Altered Winter Blog Hop!

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.



Thanks for stopping by and wishing you all a wonderful holiday.
