Tim Holtz Exclusive Stamptember Release

It's here...
It's Stamptember for Simon Says Stamps and Tim Holtz have an Exclusive Release for you!  How fun are these stamps each with it's own sentiment.  If you know my blog you know I love my blueprints.  So this set is perfect.

Check it out!!  Pick your jaw up off the ground...


I was going to make something different but I saw this mini burlap panels and thought they might be perfect fit.

Sooo every seashell needs a Seahorse...right?


These gadget gears inked with ground espresso distress paints then I sprinkled some vintage photo distress embossing powder.  Looks so grungy and rusty.


I stamped and watercolored each image using the new ground espresso accenting with weathered wood, antique linen and tea dye distress markers.


EEK...I love this one.  The mini antlers to the new Fall Foliage Thinlits that arrived just yesterday.  Mail box straight to my Vagabond...varoom.


Some Idea-Ology...


Attached with linen ribbon.


I love the masculine feel I ended up making.


I think my husband has already claimed this for his office!


Check out more projects using this awesome new Tim Holtz Exclusive stamp set.


Thanks for popping in  and checking out how I created with this new stamp set!  Cannot wait to make some more.

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 …

Make Watercoloring Easy with Clearsnap Blends

Ohhhh the Blends are here and I am loving them!  I am super excited to play with Eileen Hull's Clearsnap Colorbox Blends.  This month the Inspiration Team has been sharing their projects and they have been AMAZING!
Follow this easy tutorial for watercoloring with Blends.

I pulled out the watercolor paper grabbed my floral dies heart & soul and pansy.  Grabbed my Blends and Koi stamp.

OH MY GOODNESS... Look at how the Blends work with my Koi stamp.  I randomly applied the Blends and spritz with water then stamp.  I designed this Koi stamp to have a watercolor effect when stamping so perfecto!

The pansy die is cut and ready for Blends.  I popped some colour on my mat, spritz and drag.  I inked the edges a bit then ran my watercolor pen to soften.  The perfect lily pad.  Repeat this step for the heart & soul in hues of blue Blends.

With the Koi dry apply some of the Blends in blue, spritz and use a watercolor pen for this water step.  Randomly apply the shades of blue to cre…

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…
