Wine Gifting- Beyond the Bag!

Wine is a great hostess gift during the holidays and we are known to give some of our favorite wines to our neighbors. Also, my husband gives these to his managers along with a gift card every year.  Since a wine bag doesn't cut it... here's what I do!
I made 15 tags altogether with 3 designs.  Why don't I just make 15 tags the same?  Honestly, I switch it up for me otherwise I would get bored!

Tag #1- Yep, my pretty Tattered Poinsettia.  I stamped the tag, clear embossed for a resist and inked with Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo Inks.  Super easy!

Tag #2- A little more involved.  But oh so cute.  Inking the tag in Crushed Olive, Forrest Moss and Peeled Paint Distress Inks.  The pine tree die is cut on grunge board, the Movers and Shapers baby deer in the snow is cut with cork and I made. The Daddy Deer has antlers using a branch cut from Movers and Shapers.

Stamped in green and clear embossed is the TH Christmas Stamp, then I inked the whole tag in Firebrick and Barn Red Distressed Inks.  The Candelabra and Spider die makes this fun candle when you cut the end candles off.  Then I simple attached the Movers and Shapers Mini Wreath over the candle.

I needed to attach the gift cards.  So I used my TH Pocket Envelope die, cutting off the flap and a 1" circle punch for the notch.  I simply stamped the deer and sentiment from SMS Christmas Cheer set.

All the bottles lined up.  Now that's how you gift a wine bottle!

Just an added festive flare for gifting this holiday season.

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...
