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.

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 …

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 …

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.
