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 …

It's a Wrap

It's here... finally the Book Club 2 is releasing this month.  The Inspiration Team is sharing their Book Club 2 projects all month long to inspire you.  We are so excited to share the projects we made for Creativation.  This new release is perfect for all things journaling.
I was sent patent leather in blue.  I threaded some white elastic and through the Wrap Journal and added a wee patch of Velcro.  I decided to put the shiny side  and the more muted blue on the outside for a suede look.

I picked up this little note book at the $1 store and it's a perfect fit.  I added the 

Look... Journaling Words.


I even stamped the Wrap Journal on the outside.





Throw in a couple pages.


A few pockets...

Get ready to travel.

 Finally so excited to share this Wrap Journal I have been holding on to for 6 months.  I love this new Journal and it's a great addition to your journals.  Be sure to check out all the new accessory cuts to deck out your journaling.

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...
