12 Tags of 2013 {January}

January Tag #1
 
{Ohhh how I'm going to try and make ALL 12 tags this year} 
 
Last year I think I made half. I must admit, I really love this tag.  I'm a big fan of the gears and they were my first TH die I ever bought in November 2011.  Yep, I remember...sorta!
 
I had some of the stuff for the January tag, some I didn't and some I picked up. 
 
 
 
I have never stamped ribbon before.  Ummm...liked it!  I don't have the January stamp, bit I have the row of numbers from the Stampers Anonymous, Little Labels.  Love these numbers!  All the stamps are from this set.
 
I don't have the label so I simply stamped and cut out the pointy finger.  Put up your hand if you LOVE this finger stamp!  MEEEEE....!!!!!  I have it in both sizes.  I always have the Hinge Clips in my stash.
 
I just happened to have the metal findings gears.  I was looking at the clock hands, but I really didn't want them.  So I went without.  Not bad eh? 
 
 
I really love the colour combo Tim used.  I'm sure I'll be trying this again.  There are so many layers that make up any great crafty project.  I need to think more ink!
 
If you don't have all the stuff, just use what you do have.  The point is to try the techniques.  And if you want to get something...wait for the sale!  It always pays off;)

  1. Love it Nicole! I think I will do 12 tags of my own, it's my goal to craft for fun once a day! Not for deadlines or anything else! You always inspire me to craft!

  2. Cool! Good idea to make one a month and who cares if they are the same as Tim's?! It makes me think this would be a good Christmas card project that fits & ships cheaply in a #10 envie and I'm sure to be finished in time next Christmas :) Hmmm, we'll see but thanks for the inspiration!

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 …

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.

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 …
