12 Days of Christmas- Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of the 12 Days of Christmas.  I hope you enjoyed day one.  Come take a peek at day 2!  The rustic version of this ornament is charming and simple.  

The mini lantern is decked out with fired brick distress sprays stain.  I love this rustic ornament.

The sides are stamped using the scripty Christmas Magic set..


I cut the mini lantern again using some acetate for and trimmed out the glass area.


To highlight the center of the mini lantern I added this little cross cut from the mini present die.  A great way of combining your dies.


I trimmed the candy drawer box with twine then added an Emerald Creek crafts pinecone charms.  

Tucked in the corner are some greens and a tattered pinecone coated in iridescent embossing powder.  Shimmer...


I hope you like this rustic mini lantern ornament.  It's one of my favorites!  Thank you for popping in.  I hope your feeling festive!  

See you tomorrow...


PIN it so you won't forget about it.

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 …

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...

Sometimes things just don't add up! Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!  I hope you have your green on today!  We are half way through the Go Green, Art with Heart Challenge!  The Inspiration Team has a new bunch of creations to get you thinking GREEN!  To inspire your green creations I have whipped up the Bird Crazy ATB! All while keeping it Green!  Yep, that's some Cracked Pistachio I used!  WOOHOO!!!!

Lookie...brand new Extended Platforms.  Now I have "proper" plates for my Square Box!

I just got these Bird Crazy stamps last week!  I have been waiting patiently to play!  I stamped them all on watercolor paper.  SO EXCITED!!!!

Time to watercolour these little guys with distress markers shabby shutters, peeled paint and cracked pistachio.  

Something is Amiss here... I attached this wee $1 Store nest on the top with green eggs keeping with the green theme.  I added a blue egg for these puzzled parents and inquisitive onlooker.  

HAHA... This Correspondence stamp is too …
