12 Tags of 2013 March

It's already March? 
 
How did that come so fast! I got right to my tag since March is a busy month for me.  OK who's kidding who...every month is a busy one.  I was really liking the Tapered Fringe die (or known in my mind as the grass die) but have no idea why I like it or what I would make with it.   I was excited it was used for this months tag.  I went straight out and picked it up.  Which BTW is the only die for this tag I now own.
 
 
Just had to show you how I got around not having the dies...except the grass one.  I searched and saved the M&S Bunny w/Bow image to my desktop, sized it in WORD then cut!  Once it was cut I used my Bell Jar die instead of the label one.  I could pick up the label die but honestly, I have a billion cuts my Cricut that can do the same.



You can barely tell I only have the grass die (OK, the Tapered Fringe if you prefer).  I don't recall ever seeing 6x6 seasonal up here.  But I did find in my scraps the Easter stuff from last year.  I pieced it together and glued.


The banner die is not one I have but it's on my wish list,  Especially with the Simple Sayings stamp set.  So... a scrap of cream card stock and a wavy cut with my scissors and it's essentially the same.  I love this grass!


You guessed it, no metal flowers!  But I do have some SU Floral Punches and the small flower from my new Tattered Flowers die and a little oven liner.  I just used some Acrylic paint I have.


I placed the banner below.  It was covering the top of the Bell Jar.  It was bugging me.


I made 2 tags. 

I wanted to try the technique Tim used...sorta.  I cut the frame from my Sophisticated cart.  Then I used the M&S butterflies and cut. 


Here they are side by side.


Three Tags down!  I can do this!!!!  Thanks for checking out March!  Ohhh April is going to be dicey!

  1. Very nice job I love the one with the butterflies on it the best. I like you do not have any of the dies but will use my Cameo to recreate some of the tag parts.

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

New Release- Stamp and Photo Storage

All month the Inspiration Team for Eileen Hull is thrilled to be showing off the her newest Book Club Collection.  Here's my little glimpse at the Stamp and Photo Storagedie.  There is nothing this decent size die can't do... or hold!  In this case Letter's to Santa.  I even combined the Trinket Box & Frame to frame out Santa.


I stamped the Woodland Winter Santa designed by yours truly onto watercolor paper and used my Scribble sticks to add a little color.
I cut a piece of clear packaging and ran it through my little Xyron Disposable Sticker Makerto create a cover for my Santa.  Perfection!

I colored up the Floral Arch and Words arch to attach to the bottom and top and attached.  I used some Distress Woodgrain Cardstock to wrap my Stamp and Photo Storage. I cut Super StockCardstock to fit inside.  Inking and stamping like crazy all tied off with some postal twine.  The Correspondence Stamp Set is perfect.


I mounted the Trinket Box & Frame to the Stamp and Storage…

Pumpkin Parts Thanksgiving w/ Xyron

While my Thanksgiving may be over it is coming soon south of the border.

Xyronis getting ready for holiday season and what better way then with the Pumpkin Parts die cut.  This easy card is layered with paper and ink to create a festive pumpkin card.  The team will be sharing their fall inspired projects all week so be sure to pop by for lots of inspiration.



The Create a Sticker is great for all the smaller pieces to layer and quickly put together.  For a quick background stamp the craft sheet with Distress Oxides, spray and drag.
I cut Thanksgiving from the Sentiment Words Thinlit and attached with the Sticker Maker.Fall Foliage has this little hay die cut that I added to the bottom of the pumpkin attached the Xyron Mega Runner.
I clipped a couple of the Twisted pieces for a little green for the top of the pumpkin.





Don't miss any of the inspiration with the rest of the Xyron Team.
