WOOHOO THIS TAG WON FOR MAY'S TAG!!!!




Were you on Facebook?  Did you see what I picked up? 

I only got 2 out of the 3 Rub sets and maybe I'll add the number rubs?  I really love the Enamel Tags so I was excited to add them to my collection.  I'm not a rub fan and I took to Facebook to ask about them.  I got the hang of it after one floating finger (see below) and I would use these again.  But I don't think all the time.  They were cheap just how I like my crafts;p


OK no Mona for me.  I've never been a fan of her smile and when I was at the Louvre last year and saw her for real...she still didn't do much for me.  But LOVE my new Gent from the Paris Memoir set.


See... floating finger below to the top left of the balloon.  Once I took the back sheet off it got easier.


I used the stains (I just started collecting them) and inks I have on hand.  I love combining the stains and inks.  MESSY!


I wasn't going to stress about some exposed manila tag where the stain didn't catch.  That's where the ink can fill it in.  The resists is a big plus for these little rubs!


See how crafty I am, I lined the Gent up to hold the Balloon with his hand.  This is why the floating finger happened.


Now that the Gent is holding my balloon I stamped the chicken wire randomly. 


I only have a few Alcohol Inks.  I don't use them often so I grabbed the first one I saw.  This Enamel tag is fantastic!


Now for those little word rubs.  I do like words and I kinda rubbed at will!


My finished Tag!



I stamped the Gent half on the rub...cool!


Look, he's holding the balloon! 

It's kinda hard not to go rub nuts.
 
Pounding the brads is always a good time.
 
 
My tag all pulled together
 
 
Using the Rubs in the end was pretty cool.  I really love anything that acts as a resist and this is really accomplished using these.  I would saying adding these to your stash (I'm a newbie) is good and they are really inexpensive.  It was a good "New" technique I would have otherwise overlooked.
 
Thanks for looking!  Onto June...

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.
