Twist it Up

Put your hand up if you LOVE the new May Release of Ranger's Twisted Citron...ME, ME, ME.  
Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge this week is all about channeling your inner green. 

 I was inspired to create a floral card.  I really should make more cards.
I started with my mesh stencil and twisted citron distress ink.  EEK, I love it.


I so love the Tiny Tattered Floral Thinlits die.  If you don't have this die you NEED it like my cat needs to wake me up at 5:00AM.



I added a cut from the Shape Strip die.  I wasn't to sure about this die but I have to say it's awesome!  If you like to layer like me then this is a perfect addition to your collection.


I love to crackle with clear rock candy distress on acetate and mini apothecary bottles.  This is such a fun technique.  


Can I tell you a secret...I have ALL of the Handwritten Thinlits.  I love these dies and I use them on everything.  Layered over the mesh stencil with twisted citron and it just pops.


I created a simple knot and then fanned out the linen ribbon.  


Pulling all the pieces together the card is full of layers and texture.  The Twisted Citron is the perfect burst of green.




Are you ready to share your Twisted Citron creation with us at Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge.  There's a chance to win a $50 Gift at  Simon Says Stamps too.  Not to mention I get to see it.

Hey, thanks for checking out my Twist it Up card.  My cat Flurry and I are thrilled you stopped by to say hi.

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…
