Jumbo Tattered Floral Framed

 
HaPpY vAlEnTiNeS dAy!
 
I need some spring! 
 
We have been in a deep freeze for almost 2 weeks.  The CHA Release of the Greenery dies have me excited to create and for the birds to come back!  So... I bought all 3!  I am not a "flower" kind of crafter.  With that said I do love all the tattered dies and the Jumbo Tattered Floral is wonderful.

 
I have one piece of spring paper from my seasonal paper stash left.  Since I love the Frosted film I decided to use it for my first cut!

 
To smooth out the creases and air pockets I used my acrylic block and scraped.  Works like a charm.

 
Just look at how big these are.  I do love projects and the size of this die is perfect for us "project" crafters!
 
 
 I wanted another layer.  With a little peeled paint and old paper stain I made quick work of this patterned paper.  Using some vintage photo ink brings out this flowers inner grunge...or mine!
 
 
The frosted film takes the ink well too.  Look at all these awesome floral bits:)

 
By heat drying the frosted film flowers they want to curl.  Layer together and insert a metal gear and brad!

 
And fast forward to my project.  I have a few of these wood picture frames.  I painted them with chalkboard paint!  This black makes the Jumbo Flower pop!

 
This flower is wonderfully big to pack a punch.  Normally I would add 3 flowers to achieve this full look to anchor the corner of the frame.

 
I also cut the greenery leaves from the big die on grunge paper.  Painted them with peeled paint and some more vintage photo ink for the grunge look.

 
I thought I would try the chalkboard technique on the frame.  So I stamped "enjoy the journey" with embossing ink, some antiquities frosted crystal and chalking.  The result isn't great but the potential is there.  This is a grainy corner of the frame and hey I tried!


These little butterflies add a burst of colour.  I just love this bright sugary look by adding the distress glitter.  A little copper wire and he's flying.
 
 
Using the chalkboard paint allows you to have some fun with the chalk.  In this case the trails left by the butterflies.


I love this photo of my family.  I always ask my kids to grin and bear it for one photo then after that they can be silly!  Now that feels springy!
 
I'll be playing this week over at Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge for their stamp challenge!  Stamping on chalkboard paint!

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…

Halloween Laminated Fridge Magnets

BOO... how could this be scary!

This week the Xyron Team is showing off LAMINATE!  I have been dying to make some pumpkin magnets!  So I did!  I could have kept going with my laminating my Halloween Dies but one must exercise restraint.  After all, this is my first time making Halloween Magnets.


I cut my pumpkin and face first. I wanted to have the ability to ink the way I wanted. But I also did a couple of cuts pre inked too so I could try it out. It's all about experimenting!
I did ink up my pumpkin and add a little distressing to the edges.  Get the pieces ready... they are going through the Creative Station!

With the inked up and already laminated chipboard ready to be cut... here's where I have no idea if it will work.  To keep control I cut facing down.  After all, these are laminated and I can't go back and ink!  IT WORKED and the rest are easily trimmed.
I can't believe how freakin' adorable and easy these are.  They took no time to make and just think of wha…
