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 …

Halloween Decor- Pennies a project

SIX PROJECTS ON A DIME!

Are you looking for some Halloween Decor ideas?  I have a few for you.  These are projects I have been working on for the past couple of weeks.  BANNERS
I made Boo and Beware for my 2 corner windows.  These are cut from Birthday Bash, using Recollections Halloween paper and Stampin Up Halloween Paper.
I made this Tim Holtz Banner, "Trick or Treat".  Hangs over my spooky dining room.  Black sheets are there for the holidays.
Cut from Birthday Bash and the frames/ font are a Sophisticated cut.  I added beads from Walmart and skulls are a $1 store necklace cut up.
This BIG Banner is "Happy Halloween"
The charms are Walmart and the tulle is from an old Halloween costume.  This glitter spiders are a $1 store find.

Happy Halloween!
Candles
Cheap-o-la...You can make this on a budget...promise!  I picked these candelabras up from Michaels for $12 at 50% off.  I bought them on a day they there was an additional 25% off so in the end they were less than…

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…
