Toy Soldier Christmas Card

It's my first Christmas card...in the mail!
 
I'm so lucky to have such inspirational crafty friends.  My BFF is now living in the Land Down Under and just sent me her Christmas card.  All decked in red and I just had to show you. 
 
My other BFF (we all hung out, crafted and generally created chaos) and I picked her up this die for Christmas and shipped it down for her to play with.  She did a stunning job!
 
I LOVE the "25"!  Looks like a Movers and Shapers to me:)  And the layers are so yummy!
 
 
This Toy Soldier die is so fun and there's so much you can create with it.  This one looks great in red:)
 

 
I just had to show you how crafty my friends are. 
 
Thanks to my good friends, I miss them so much!

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 …

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...

Basket of Blooms

May Flowers are this months theme for the Inspiration Team.  I am thrilled the snow has finally melted, the trees have leaves and the bumbles are flying around.  I created a Basket of Blooms For Sale.  Love these flowers!

I cut the Basket die with chipboard and sprayed.  All the Spring Leaves and Pansy cuts are done with watercolor paper.  Coated in Dylusions Shimmer Spray.  HOLY SHIMMERY COLOUR!
Did I mention it's messy!  WOOT WOOT!
I love these colourful blooms agains the dark stained wooden basket.



I hope your May Flowers are coming in and the Bumbles are happy.  Don't forget to check out with the team is up to all month long sharing their May Inspiration.
