Is anyone there?
 
I have been so busy these days with family, teaching and crafting!  I am committing myself to playing EVERY month with Tim's Tags!  I'm really squeaking this one in!  I have a photo tutorial on this tag, how I got there "WITHOUT" all the goodies Tim used.
 
I am just starting to collect some stains so I just picked up Barn Door.  I cheated with  Fire Brick Ink and water. 
 
 
I loaded the tag with Barn Door Stain.  I'm staining so fast the photo blurred.

 
I stamped the ink pad on my mat.  Clever...

 
Then spritz the water and drag the tag through.  Go through the same spritzing of the tag and dry.

 
See it worked.  I drag my scissors and inked black.
 
 
The stamp Tim used isn't available for me.  So I used what I have, Travel Blueprint! 

 
After stamping the water paper I used my craft punch to notch out the postage edge.  Oh that cutting sucks!

 
I cut the airplane out...cause I'm crafty like that.

 
I don't have the markers and have no plan of getting them.  Instead I use my inks and water blender pens.  I works!

 
I used my new Travel embossing folder which goes with my plane.

 
I have all these Fragment pieces so I grabbed a circle piece.  Then I followed the what Tim did!
 
 
Sticking the Chitchat stickers down and glue.

 
I don't have the labels so I used the ticket stamp I have.  Along with the same pointy finger!

 
Look, I have washi!  I kinda love this new tip!  I inked the washi with Black Soot.

 
All Done!

 
Scrappy Moms Stamps just sent me some new Twine with gold and silver in it.  YUM!

 
I skipped the hearts along the top.  Not a big fan of that.

 
What a fun Tag this was! 

 
BRING ON MARCH TIM!

    So cool that you had that embossing folder that went so well with your theme.

Halloween Decor- Pennies a project

SIX PROJECTS ON A DIME!

Are you looking for some Halloween Decor ideas?  I have a few for you.  These are projects I have been working on for the past couple of weeks.  BANNERS
I made Boo and Beware for my 2 corner windows.  These are cut from Birthday Bash, using Recollections Halloween paper and Stampin Up Halloween Paper.
I made this Tim Holtz Banner, "Trick or Treat".  Hangs over my spooky dining room.  Black sheets are there for the holidays.
Cut from Birthday Bash and the frames/ font are a Sophisticated cut.  I added beads from Walmart and skulls are a $1 store necklace cut up.
This BIG Banner is "Happy Halloween"
The charms are Walmart and the tulle is from an old Halloween costume.  This glitter spiders are a $1 store find.

Happy Halloween!
Candles
Cheap-o-la...You can make this on a budget...promise!  I picked these candelabras up from Michaels for $12 at 50% off.  I bought them on a day they there was an additional 25% off so in the end they were less than…

Altered Halloween Advent Calendar w/ Video

WOW, I think this is my biggest Halloween project yet.  It took me 5 days to complete and I could have kept adding!!!  As you know I adore Halloween and yes I have begun bringing out my Halloween goodies.  Lots of photos in this post and there is so much to see.  So lets get into the project and get you inspired for Halloween!
I was asked by Scrapbooker's Paradise (where I teach) to make one of these Kaiser Craft Shadow Boxes...with a Halloween Theme!!!  Arm twisted and mission accepted.  I am going all Tim on this one! I started by spraying all the pieces with a Hammered Finish in a gun metal grey. The set even comes with numbers;) I used My Minds Eye Happy Haunting paper to create each box with a great pattern paper background.  Then using all my Tim Holtz goodies and $1 Store finds I went to town decorating.  I used various numbers from the rub ons, metal numbers, wooden and those that came with the Shadow Box.   Be sure to dry fit before gluing!  It took me 4 hours to die cut…

Paper Smooches Passport

It's no secret I love journaling of any kind including the Passport die.  Creating little books everywhere I go and with everything I have.

Xyron and Paper Smooches are teaming up this week and a ton of creativity.  Creating pages is essential to journaling and the Notebook Paper Twostamp is perfect for these inserts.  Check it out...


Roll the cover pieces of the Passport Die through the Creative Station, switching out the 5" refill for the 9" refill.  Work one side at a time to quickly adhere Wild Whispers paper.

Apply inside pattern paper, flip and repeat for the exterior paper.

To make things easier I used my new Tonic Studios Stamp Platform.  With all these pages I needed precision stamping for the notebook lines and teeny letters to create "notes".

I don't want plain pages... that's boring.  I inked and stamped the all the letters with antique linen randomly on each page.  Add a little paper detail.  But just a little ;)

Lets stencil because we can…
