I was really worried I would miss this months tag. I have made a commitment to create every month. A couple weeks ago I injured my back. All those new Sizzix dies and I haven't touched one of them. And sitting in my craft room isn't really comfortable. So, taking it slow, breaking a lot and a few Advil I have managed to create the tag.
I am a coastal girl and hail from Vancouver Island. So, these Sizzix dies I fell in love with!
I followed Tim's technique's.
Creating the sand was a new one for me. I really loved how it turned out.
When I was picking out all my Sizzix goodies I "almost" got the embossing folder Tim used. Ugh, I should have. But the rays one worked out perfect.
I love adding distress paint to my word bands.
A lot of great techniques this month which made it a lot of fun.
I'm off to YELLOWSTONE tomorrow in my motor home along with my adorable husband, 3 kids, dog and towing my Jeep! One of my favorite National Parks to visit. I'll be dragging my butt through the park with this sore back. But I cannot wait! So, I'm really happy I managed to get this done before I go.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my July tag that almost didn't happen. Now to ice my back and rest!
I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!
This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale! How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern. I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights. I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one. Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial. So, I decided to create my own. With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life. Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.
Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch. Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself. In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will. Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid. I can draw but not s…
I stamped the Woodland Winter Santa designed by yours truly onto watercolor paper and used my Scribble sticks to add a little color.
I cut a piece of clear packaging and ran it through my little Xyron Disposable Sticker Makerto create a cover for my Santa. Perfection!
While my Thanksgiving may be over it is coming soon south of the border.
Xyronis getting ready for holiday season and what better way then with the Pumpkin Parts die cut. This easy card is layered with paper and ink to create a festive pumpkin card. The team will be sharing their fall inspired projects all week so be sure to pop by for lots of inspiration.
The Create a Sticker is great for all the smaller pieces to layer and quickly put together. For a quick background stamp the craft sheet with Distress Oxides, spray and drag.
I cut Thanksgiving from the Sentiment Words Thinlit and attached with the Sticker Maker.Fall Foliage has this little hay die cut that I added to the bottom of the pumpkin attached the Xyron Mega Runner.
I clipped a couple of the Twisted pieces for a little green for the top of the pumpkin.
Don't miss any of the inspiration with the rest of the Xyron Team.
