Make mine a Double

Holy CRAP...I'm early!  
(sorry, didn't me to yell there)

Lately, I seem to be just squeaking my tags in at the last moment!  I cannot tell you how BUSY I am creating and scheduling posts.  I have a lot of stuff coming up and exciting things to share.  But for now...let's bask in the glory of my June Tag...DONE!  Or at least I will bask!

 I know, I say it all the time but it's true...this was FUN to make.  I really love those Custom Ink pads...have you made yours yet?


Let us take a moment here people...this is my last "big" mirrored star :(


Now, I am not a fan of the Frap...(no haters please) but it's true.  Whip Cream is not my thing.  But, I did enjoy making it look whippy.


WOOHOO...I know I'm late to the Flashcard Party but lookie...I have some now.  ENJOY!


I do love my #hashtag stamps but I really wanted my wordband and mowed lawn distress paint to meet up and get grungy!


I didn't have a green straw either...I know shocking.  I used the straw that comes with the Freshly Brewed die and inked with mowed lawn distress paint.  No coloured jute stuff either.  So, $1 store jute and more mowed lawn.  Pretty EH...


There you have it!  

It's Father's Day Sunday and my husband LOVES Starbucks.  He has his gold card and everything so this is perfect to nestle in a loaded card for him.  Great way to celebrate Father's day!

  1. Nicole, as usual I had a real hearty laugh reading through your post! Don't you love it when you come early to a challenge? Especially Tim's! I'm a last minute girl when it comes to Tim's challenges,and this month will be no exception! I don't own a SINGLE thing aside from the tag itself! But I've got my tartan background ready for action! Your cuppa is just fabulous, and will be a real special Father's Day memento for your husband! I love how you have repeated your Mowed Lawn on your embellishments--it really pops against the neutrals! How come mine's not so bright?? And your whip is the cat's pajamas and looks yummy enough to eat! Thank you for making me laugh AND for joining in our Make It Masculine challenge at Anything But Cute! hugs! Sara Emily DT

  2. You did a great job here Nicole, love your tag and your amusing post. Looks like you need more stars, but that's still about the only thing for my tag when I get round to it. Like you Tim's tag always seems to get squeezed till the end of the month. Have a great weekend.
    Hugs Brenda xxx

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 …

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.

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 …
