Wish

 I have been patiently waiting for the Layered Snowflake to arrive so I could make this months tag. I felt like it was taking forever! I knew I wasn't going to use my layered leaf.  Thanksgiving is over...Halloween is over and there is snow on the ground! That calls for a snowflake!
 
I love this big textured snowflake for November's tag.  I love the torn cardboard!  It feels grungy!
 
 
I did all the inking and embossing for the layered snowflake.  I have everything except the transfer foil *sad face* so I used brushed pewter distress paint dabbing through the speckled stencil. 

 
I cut this round thinlit label the used my Alphanumeric I just got to say WISH.  Since it wouldn't fit across the tag I had fun and placed the letters like you see.  I actually prefer it like this.
 
*the letters became magnetized and were dancing around my platform...weird*

 
Along the bottom of my tag I cut and distress glittered clear rock candy the snow flurries cut.  Then attached with some tinsel twine.  I attached a snowflake charm with a little added picket fence distress paint.

 
 I love all the blues and texture.

 
I attached a Christmas Word Band along the top with my tiny attacher and tinsel twine. 

 
There, short and sweet...like me. 
 
Thanks for checking out my 12 Tags of 2014 November Tag.
 
Be sure to play along.  You don't have to have all the same goodies...you just have to be inspired.

  5. Well, you sure were inspired! This is gorgeous, Nicole! A great spin on Tim's tag! this is just perfect, and I love all the snowy details! Love! Great idea to use the stencil with brushed pewter. Sure beats spilling the entire bottle all over your work table like I did! I had silver hands for a week!

    Now, I've got to get that snowflurries die! I hope you'll visit again, and see what I just finished linking to Tim's challenge--another flake!

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 …

It's a Wrap

It's here... finally the Book Club 2 is releasing this month.  The Inspiration Team is sharing their Book Club 2 projects all month long to inspire you.  We are so excited to share the projects we made for Creativation.  This new release is perfect for all things journaling.
I was sent patent leather in blue.  I threaded some white elastic and through the Wrap Journal and added a wee patch of Velcro.  I decided to put the shiny side  and the more muted blue on the outside for a suede look.

I picked up this little note book at the $1 store and it's a perfect fit.  I added the 

Look... Journaling Words.


I even stamped the Wrap Journal on the outside.





Throw in a couple pages.


A few pockets...

Get ready to travel.

 Finally so excited to share this Wrap Journal I have been holding on to for 6 months.  I love this new Journal and it's a great addition to your journals.  Be sure to check out all the new accessory cuts to deck out your journaling.

Watercoloring with Butterflies & Oxides

The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team has been sharing tutorials all month long.  I do have a video tutorial for this card but it won't be read for awhile.  Hey, it happens.  I at least have a couple of photo's until the whole video is posted on Creative Scrapbooker Magazines website.


Loving the new Oxide inks especially as we approach those soft easter pallets.

A little stamping.

I know it's not a box or cool journal.  One of my favourite dies is the Birds & Butterflies thinlit.  Yep, there are pretty little dies perfect for card making too.



I love the intricate butterfly to layer over.

A simple card and no it's not even a journal.

I will share the video when it's all done and posted.  I will even embed it in the post too.
Onto next month...
