Rickety House Christmas Tag Challenge

My GF bought this TH tree die (we call it the ugly tree) and she wasn't sure if she wanted to keep it because it was to Halloweenie.  I wanted her to keep it so I told her I would show her how I could make it Christmassy!
I used a $1 Store Light Necklace on the tree then added some white glitter glue for snow on the branches.  There, not scary now!  I attached the Mini Wreath on the top window of the Rickety House.  I ran the house through my brick embossing folder.  So cool!
Popping the fence out allows to tuck things in and it's a cool effect.  I layered green pipe cleaner and bows from the Mini Wreath die to decorate the fence.  The some cotton ball for snow.

There's so much you can do with these dies and make them any season you want!
Making the scary tree Christmassy?  Did I do it?


  1. I think it's perfect! 2nd Christmas use of a Halloween die for the day-love it!

  2. Another great tag.
    Love how you worked those die cuts to give them a new look to them :)

  3. Awesome!! You did a great job! It's so fun and festive!

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 …

Simply Spring

Just a simple card with stuff I had laying around or partially started.  What could be more easy than that.  Sometimes you just have to dig through your stuff.  Click the links below to see what I used.

You are the best... using Ranger's new Letter It stamps.

A little mixed media die cutting.

I went all inky then added a coat of clear rock candy distress glitter.  If only the shimmer came through.

Love these flowers.

A grungy little edge.

This is a simple little card with a couple of easy techniques.  We have so much snow so I guess I just need some cheery spring.

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...
