Butterflies and Stamps

Today it feels like spring!  Well, not really but after temps in the -20c range anything over 0c feels warm! 
 
I just picked up this stamp TH Papillon set.  I love the Paris background stamp and yes, even these butterflies/ moths.  I'm a year behind getting it but the new Eiffel Tower die coming and this was 50% off it was time to snap it up! 
 
There's something about the Chicken Wire stamp!  I love the look so on it went with Versamark.  I stamped the grunge paper butterfly with one of the butterflies.

 
Once the ink is on I stamped the butterflies/ Moths. Stamping again the big one and cutting it it out, inking and mounting.

 
I'm guessing this one is a Moth.  Yuck...but it looks good on my tag!
 
 
I created the leathery look of the hinge with grungboard, ink and Rock Candy.

 
Our Canadian Ground Hog says early spring!  Lets hope so...I'm going camping in the Rockies this coming weekend.

  3. OMG Hi Nicole, I'm a fellow Canadian living in Seoul, Korea and got directed here by searching for nickel scrap as in the metal that I was trying to supply to some Korean industrial buyers! Brilliantly funny!

    Love your blog and stamps anyway, even if you don't have any scrap metal for me!

    Happy Valentines days too.

    Best,

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 …

It's a Wrap

It's here... finally the Book Club 2 is releasing this month.  The Inspiration Team is sharing their Book Club 2 projects all month long to inspire you.  We are so excited to share the projects we made for Creativation.  This new release is perfect for all things journaling.
I was sent patent leather in blue.  I threaded some white elastic and through the Wrap Journal and added a wee patch of Velcro.  I decided to put the shiny side  and the more muted blue on the outside for a suede look.

I picked up this little note book at the $1 store and it's a perfect fit.  I added the 

Look... Journaling Words.


I even stamped the Wrap Journal on the outside.





Throw in a couple pages.


A few pockets...

Get ready to travel.

 Finally so excited to share this Wrap Journal I have been holding on to for 6 months.  I love this new Journal and it's a great addition to your journals.  Be sure to check out all the new accessory cuts to deck out your journaling.

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...
