Noel Wishes

Is it really the last Tag of 2014!
I have had these pieces cut and ready sitting on my desk since the first week of December.  Even the Prancing Deer was cut.  But I decided in the end to use the Lantern die.  I just love it wrapped in Holiday Greens!  I actually finished it last week but with the holidays things get delayed.
I used the Alphanumeric Thinlits for the Noel.

I love the "wishes".

I used the enamel metal technique for the lantern.  Then crackled around the candle light.  I love the wax paper tip for the thinlits and have been using it for weeks.  I left the wax paper on the holly cut for fun.

I used a tattered pinecone and red jingles for the top of the lantern.
A big messy bow in green with a snowflake dangling.
I don't have the frosted sheets used by Tim :(  So I improvised with the frosted adhesive backed sheet over acetate.  I did emboss but you can see it was well.

I skipped the sewing along the tag.  I'm a terrible sewer and so it's best we all don't have to witness that. 
I have been asked to design some samples for CHA for 2015!  I'll give you a hint...I've used Sizzix dies.  I am HOPING it will all make it in time.  Shipping is slower this time of year especially leaving Canada to the US.  I busted my butt to get 5 projects built.  I'll be showing those off during CHA here on my blog.  I soooo wish I could have been at CHA in person.  But then...don't we all!
Thank you for stopping by and checking out my take on this December Tag!  I love all the fun techniques this past year!  Thank you for all your support over the year.

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 …

Simply Spring

Just a simple card with stuff I had laying around or partially started.  What could be more easy than that.  Sometimes you just have to dig through your stuff.  Click the links below to see what I used.

You are the best... using Ranger's new Letter It stamps.

A little mixed media die cutting.

I went all inky then added a coat of clear rock candy distress glitter.  If only the shimmer came through.

Love these flowers.

A grungy little edge.

This is a simple little card with a couple of easy techniques.  We have so much snow so I guess I just need some cheery spring.

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...
