"Canadian" Giveaway, EH!

This is a special THANK YOU to all my CANADIAN peeps for voting for me during the Sizzix Who Are You Contest!  I had so many supporters all around the world and I'm so grateful...which is why I had a giveaway last week too;) 
I'll get to those fun details at the end.  But I have to show you a crafty project first!  I teach part time at Scrapbooker's Paradise and I love it. They have asked me to help whip up some displays which has been a lot of fun! I bet you can guess what display this one is for!  I was given some paper and this wooden cradle and told to make it BABY!
I glued the pink paper with modge podge.  I made sure to distress and ink everything too!  I love the wordplay "baby & me"!  The crescent moon die looks amazing in picked raspberry distress glitter.
The Jumbo Tattered Floral is awesome for these larger projects. 
A little chalking!  Someone mentioned in a blog comment this would be a great sentiment for a new baby!  So I went with it.  See, I listen:)
I inked the flower with pumice stone, worn lipstick and picked raspberry.
I attached these mini florals all around and I stamped and inked some ribbon.
One of my favorite dies is the garden green die.  I love adding these greens to my projects!
My Scrapbooker's Family was so excited and a huge support.  The made sure to share with all their customers to vote, vote, vote!  They have offered a chance to win $25 gift card and I have matched that for a...

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 …

Make Watercoloring Easy with Clearsnap Blends

Ohhhh the Blends are here and I am loving them!  I am super excited to play with Eileen Hull's Clearsnap Colorbox Blends.  This month the Inspiration Team has been sharing their projects and they have been AMAZING!
Follow this easy tutorial for watercoloring with Blends.

I pulled out the watercolor paper grabbed my floral dies heart & soul and pansy.  Grabbed my Blends and Koi stamp.

OH MY GOODNESS... Look at how the Blends work with my Koi stamp.  I randomly applied the Blends and spritz with water then stamp.  I designed this Koi stamp to have a watercolor effect when stamping so perfecto!

The pansy die is cut and ready for Blends.  I popped some colour on my mat, spritz and drag.  I inked the edges a bit then ran my watercolor pen to soften.  The perfect lily pad.  Repeat this step for the heart & soul in hues of blue Blends.

With the Koi dry apply some of the Blends in blue, spritz and use a watercolor pen for this water step.  Randomly apply the shades of blue to cre…

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…
