I Scream...for Idea-Ology

Monday + Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge= FUNDAY!  
This weeks challenge is the letter "I" and what inspires you.  Now, I'm sure a lot of you are thinking HELLO...that's easy.  Ummm...not me, nope, not at all. 
 
I'm thinking, I'm thinking... ice cream, icicles, icy blues, iceberg.  Hey, I'm Canadian and apparently I think cold things.  Needless to say I felt challenged and I do like a challenge.
After days of contemplating (no, really days and days)  it hit me, Idea-Ology.  Join me and check out what the letter "I" sparks my imagination using Idea-Ology.


I've been collecting ALL the Idea-Ology Correspondence goodies of late.


 I made sure to only use the Correspondence stamp set for the whole project.  I wanted show just how far this stamp set can stretch.


I love the Airmail Paper String wrapping the box.  


I did the sides too.


I topped with a pen nib and tucked in a Index Label with the small chit chat sentiment.


Who doesn't love the Correspondence Designer Tape!  It perfectly frames the box.


Once of my favorite dies released this year is the envelope die.  There's so much you can do with this die.  I stamped then added a photobooth image.  I wrote on it too so it looks extra vintage-y.  That's a word right...vintage-y.


I made my box to the same size as the Eileen Hull XL 3D Block Cube Bank die since I don't have it...yet.  


Are you ready to share what the letter "I" inspires in you?  I know I could use some idea's.  Share with us at Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge.

There will be a one random draw for a chance to win $50 with Simon Says Stamps


Thank you for taking  the time to pop in.  If you leave a comment I'll share some smoke salmon with you? 

Can I sneak this into some of my favorite challenges!!!

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 …

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 …

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.
