12 Tags of 2013- October

12 Tags of 2013... it's OCTOBER and I made 2!!! Because that's how much I love this time of year and technique.
 
I always love anything crafty this time of year.  Bet you didn't know that about me.  For this tag I had the stamps...and...that was about it.  However, I am collecting more inky things ( like this post) so I decided to get ALL the Fall paints.  (It's not a problem if I use them...right)  I LOVE this technique and since I LOVE Fall/Halloween I went for them all.  Oh and the Distress Glitter...and the Distress Inks.
 
Here's my version of the October Tag.  I don't have the frame.  But that's OK, I cut the frame on grungepaper using my Cricut's Sophisticated cartridge.
 
I really love the script in the back.  The smoky technique is a great Halloween trick...so spooky!
Well, I went for the scary kitty!  Truth be told, I had the little owl and moon that were cut and given to me.  And...I'm pretty sure I cleaned them up into the recycle bin:/
 
A little pop of bling for the bottom.  I really wanted some hardware.  So I added the Skull n' Crossbones.
***BONUS TAG***
 
I had all this ink left on my craft sheet so I decided to swipe another tag...and then 1 more. I might as well make 2 tags then and that allowed me to ink and glitter my BIG Crescent Moon.
 
Two Tags are always better than 1!
I love making this month's tag!  And there was IS glitter EVERYWHERE!

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.
