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!

  3. I think I will build mine tonight. Must share more on my blog. I did all but the summer months and gave them away before taking a picture :(. I like your take on this tag!

  4. Great encouragement, thanks, love the tag!
    Must try & do 12 tags!

  5. You did a great job on this month's tag and I hope you stick with it. I really appreciate the close up photos that you posted. I know it takes extra work. Thanks for sharing.

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... 

EAT. SLEEP. CRAFT. {repeat}
