Less than "10 Minute" Card

I literary had 10 minutes to make this card.  I've said it a million times.  When you have extra paints, stains or inks on your craft mat grab a scrap and use up that product!  This card is a perfect example.  I had extra paint on my mat so I ran through an extra tag to use it up.  I threw it in my box and there it waited until now. 
 
With no time I made this in just over 5 minutes.
 
  A quick stamp with the Classic #1 dragon fly and it's quickly taking shape.
 
 
I always have scraps and left overs from other projects ready to use.  This film strip and scrap paper pieces are left over from the Retro TV project.  The Cancer Sucks stamp is a Scrappy Moms Stamp from when I was on their DT.  LOVE this set!
 
 
I usually layer some paper on the inside.  But remember, no time.  So I stamped my #hastags stamp right to the kraft inside.
 
 
I cut the tag top off and ran it through my vagabond using the torn edges die.
 
 
I have a stack of scraps full of stains, paints and inks waiting to be used in a snap.  Don't wipe up extra product.  Soak it up and use it when you need a card in a hurry!
 
Thanks for stopping by and I so love reading all your sweet comments!  Hope you're liking my blog changes!

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.
