The Gentleman

It's Monday and I'm not sharing my Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge post.  Well, I thought I should let you know I have decided to step down.  I love the DT and my time albeit short time with them.  I leave on the BEST of terms and I miss these lovely ladies already.  However, life happens and I have some pretty exciting things I have been working hard on.  I have so much to share...when I get the OK ;)  

Alright... onto my Tag!
I wasn't sure if I would get my 12 Tags of 2015 is done for September.  It's been a hectic month getting ready for The Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine puts on every year.  I had 2 great classes and spent the day meeting amazing people and having fun!  After what seemed like days of kitting to get ready I found myself scrambling to get my tag done.  Phew... I did.

Meet The Gentleman


I love my word bands and these are my favorite ones.  I decided to use my tiny attacher.  I think I just love the look of these wee staples.


I love when I get to create these vibrant backgrounds with the glossy paper.  Only if there was Wilted Violet alcohol ink...Sigh!


OK, so no I don't have the Frosted stuff Tim used.  Sometimes these things can be pretty hard to find.  But, get creative with what you do have.  I used Frosted Film and acetate.  Different is good.  


Look...Wilted Violet spritzed on my tag!


Tim used the Flourish Stencil but I thought the Gothic would go better for my tag.


I love these edgy skulls I get from Emerald Creek Crafts!  I inked them up with Slate Alcohol inks.


I added my wordband to some Core paper and  sanded it.  I was going to ink a little but...nah!


OK...I'm ready for October!  I LOVE HALLOWEEN, FALL AND RANGER'S OCTOBER RELEASE...well when we all get to see it on Friday!

Watch for my upcoming Guest Post for Ranger in October!  EEK...It's going to be CREEPY!!!!
 

Oh and I should wish my honey a Happy Anniversary...seriously we made it 19 years!

Lets play...

  2. Hello Nicole, I love our Tim Holtz Addicts FB group. I've never msg someone on here yet, but your Tag today is one of my favorites I've seen so far. Thank you for sharing. Not sure what your surprise future is ....but coming and looking at your wonderful Blog I can tell it will be very rewarding, You are very talented. I live in Prescott, AZ which is actually in the Mountains and beautiful. I am looking forward to this Friday as it is my last day of work. I get to re-tire and I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to being able to play with all the inks, paints, sprays, embellishments that I have been collecting and the zillion projects I want to do full time. In fact I just received a huge order from Frilly and Funkie today. Lots of fun goodies that made my evening. I have a long ways to go to do such beautiful work. I would even love to learn how to do a blog....but my computer skills are not great, my brain just does not work that way. LOL Anyway. Thanks for the inspiration.

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 …
