12 Days of Christmas- Day 3

Onto Day 3 of the 12 Days of Christmas!  Have you been following along?  Are you seeing a theme with the Candy Drawer Box die!  I love these little boxes to create fun holiday themes.
It's a festive feel with this Christmas Wreath.  

Think of all the possibilities you can create inside these.


I bleached my wreath only to color it again with pine needles distress spray stain.  I used the mini bow from the Mini bow and wreath set.  Then I attached the wee metal pine cone charms from Emerald Creek Crafts.


I cut the clear frozen icicle border then coated it with glossy accents and iridescent shimmer embossing powder.


The "25" is a mover and shaper inked with fired brick, some gold foil and attached to the edges.


Simple and pretty


I hope you liked day 3!  With it's inked wreath, metal charms and iridescent shimmer.  Looking forward to 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 …

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…
