Creative Chemistry 101 plus Tag Storage

 
At the start of the week all the Buzz was for Tim Holtz Creative Chemistry 102 Class (CC102).  What I did know was that I couldn't take CC102 without taking Creative Chemistry 101 (CC101).   Until that is, I went onto TH BLOG and saw that I could in fact take Creative Chemistry 101!  Are you kidding me...how did I not know this!  Feeling like a dumb ass I went ahead and registered. 
 
Here's the thing.  I thought I knew a fair amount about Distress Techniques when in fact..."I KNOW NOTHING"  As I try to catch up to CC102 (which I won't) I thought I would share with you the tags I made this week during the CC101 Classes!
 
If you want to take these classes you must start and complete Creative Chemistry 101 before starting Creative Chemistry 102.
  
***Please note, I have blurred any of the info shared in the class out of respect for those people that teach it and have taken it:)***

  
Day 2: Distress Ink Intro
I'm pretty familiar with Distress Inks and I'm sure you are too.  At least you think you are...hmmm!
 

Day 3: Archival Ink Uses
Working with Alcohol isn't a favourite technique of mine.  With that said, I do still enjoy it.  And Tim shares a Killer Tip for Alcohol clean up.  How did I not know this!


Day 4: Re-Inkers and Maintenance
Huge fan of the first technique with my cool guy.  Tag #2..too much water and tag #3, well when you don't have all the goodies you improvise.


Day 5: Spray Inks and Stains (End of week One)
What can I say but WOW!  Great stuff here.  Look at those layers! 


Day 6: Distress Markers ( I did week 2 in a day)
I don't own any Distress Markers, however I do own Stampin Up Markers.  I thought for not having TH Markers I still got it.  And I am very familiar with Marker Blending.

 
Day 7: Embossing Basics
Love, love, love this one.  Although I don't own any Distress Embossing Powder I did use what I have to keep up.  Can I just say the middle tag is an AMAZING Technique!  A future favourite:)
 

Day 8: Paint Primer
Oh all these tags are just so wicked to create. 


Day 9: Perfect Pearls
I wish you could see how pearlized this set is.  I don't own Perfect Pearls, but I do have Pearl Ex.  Pearl Ex does NOT have a binding agent, so I had to set with hair spray.  This did not affect the out come...for me any way.


Day 10: Dimensional Mediums
HUGE fan of Rock Candy so this was a treat!


Creative Chemistry 101: Tag Storage
Being organized is all most as much fun as learning all these great techniques.  So, putting together the TH Worn Cover Book has been so fun.  This will help me use all the techniques in a quick reference guide.  I have another Book for Creative Chemistry 102.


Table of Contents:
I re-sized the Table of Contents to fit into my Tag die. It has it's own Tag Pocket (I ran out) at the front.


Dividing Techniques:
I have these hard plastic dividers left over from some old SU Boxes.  I simply punched them for the rings and added each Days label.


Visible Labels:
Each Tag sit's in it's own Pocket so when I look at the back I have my instructions on how to create each Tag. 

 Keeping Organized:
I teach classes on these techniques so keeping organized for me is very helpful...and A-Type!



I have already signed up for Creative Chemistry 102!  I'm so excited to join in and play with such talent!  Thanks for taking a look:)

Halloween Decor- Pennies a project

SIX PROJECTS ON A DIME!

Are you looking for some Halloween Decor ideas?  I have a few for you.  These are projects I have been working on for the past couple of weeks.  BANNERS
I made Boo and Beware for my 2 corner windows.  These are cut from Birthday Bash, using Recollections Halloween paper and Stampin Up Halloween Paper.
I made this Tim Holtz Banner, "Trick or Treat".  Hangs over my spooky dining room.  Black sheets are there for the holidays.
Cut from Birthday Bash and the frames/ font are a Sophisticated cut.  I added beads from Walmart and skulls are a $1 store necklace cut up.
This BIG Banner is "Happy Halloween"
The charms are Walmart and the tulle is from an old Halloween costume.  This glitter spiders are a $1 store find.

Happy Halloween!
Candles
Cheap-o-la...You can make this on a budget...promise!  I picked these candelabras up from Michaels for $12 at 50% off.  I bought them on a day they there was an additional 25% off so in the end they were less than…

Altered Halloween Advent Calendar w/ Video

WOW, I think this is my biggest Halloween project yet.  It took me 5 days to complete and I could have kept adding!!!  As you know I adore Halloween and yes I have begun bringing out my Halloween goodies.  Lots of photos in this post and there is so much to see.  So lets get into the project and get you inspired for Halloween!
I was asked by Scrapbooker's Paradise (where I teach) to make one of these Kaiser Craft Shadow Boxes...with a Halloween Theme!!!  Arm twisted and mission accepted.  I am going all Tim on this one! I started by spraying all the pieces with a Hammered Finish in a gun metal grey. The set even comes with numbers;) I used My Minds Eye Happy Haunting paper to create each box with a great pattern paper background.  Then using all my Tim Holtz goodies and $1 Store finds I went to town decorating.  I used various numbers from the rub ons, metal numbers, wooden and those that came with the Shadow Box.   Be sure to dry fit before gluing!  It took me 4 hours to die cut…

Paper Smooches Passport

It's no secret I love journaling of any kind including the Passport die.  Creating little books everywhere I go and with everything I have.

Xyron and Paper Smooches are teaming up this week and a ton of creativity.  Creating pages is essential to journaling and the Notebook Paper Twostamp is perfect for these inserts.  Check it out...


Roll the cover pieces of the Passport Die through the Creative Station, switching out the 5" refill for the 9" refill.  Work one side at a time to quickly adhere Wild Whispers paper.

Apply inside pattern paper, flip and repeat for the exterior paper.

To make things easier I used my new Tonic Studios Stamp Platform.  With all these pages I needed precision stamping for the notebook lines and teeny letters to create "notes".

I don't want plain pages... that's boring.  I inked and stamped the all the letters with antique linen randomly on each page.  Add a little paper detail.  But just a little ;)

Lets stencil because we can…
