Shadow Box Curiosities

 
I have been busily working away on new displays for the LSS, Scrapbooker's Paradise!  Today I get to work on the Tim Holtz section!  YAY!!!  There's a few new goodies too.    I started by deconstructing this old shadow box and giving it a fresh look.  My way;)

 
The new letterpress letters are here!  The new frameworks dies and papers!
 
 
I layered foiled tape, embossed and painted.  I stamped on the Fluer de lis with the new Bird Feather stamp.  I love this one.  The picture wheel is distressed and some added film ribbon!  Did you Know; the film ribbon was given out at the 2014 Oscars in the goodie bags!
 
 
The new honeycomb FRAMEWORKS die just arrived.  It adds a great layer.  I used the new 8x8 Menagerie!
 
I filled the jar with this gauze fabric and added some rub ons.  Love the wood letterpress!
I love the window and pediments element.
Just a random box of numbers including a domino I painted.
These are the new Found Relative Portraits cards!  They are sooo cool.  I tore the ends off to fit the box then attached the torn edges to the outer box.  I gave the card a slight bend to fit.  Looks amazing!
This is my favorite one.  I stamped the random quotes script stamp onto water colour paper, vintage photo distressed ink and water coloured it.  More rubs on the ink well then I sanded it to further grunge it up.

I just love it!
 
 
Creating each box to tell it's own story!
 
I used TH Washi to wrap the edges.  I don't use washi that often but that was quick!
I kept the hardware from the old shadow box and used it for house numbers.
Pulled together this reclaimed shadow box has a new refreshed look.
If you live in the area and want to see this pop down to Scrapbooker's Paradise.

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.
