I'm combining a couple of my DT's projects, Frilly and Funkie "Winter Wishes" Challenge and the chipboard cut "Winter" from my other Guest DT Southern Ridge Trading Company, a small Canadian Company with the cutest chipboard/ wood cuts.
I used my All Occasions card for a great vintage layer.
A couple of stacked Snowflakes with glitter and a silver jingle.
I LOVE the "Winter" chipboard embellishment from Southern Ridge Trading Company!
Thanks for stopping by. Make sure to play along with Frilly and Funkie's Winter Wishes Challenge. I'll be away for a couple of weeks (16 days) with my family. I'll be posting while I'm away so make sure you don't miss anything.

I cut my weathered clock in half then layered some Southern Ridge Trading Company gears inked with distress paint!
I couldn't find the tissue paper so I made my own. I followed the fun techniques Tim showed.
I glittered the "1" and "5" and added the chit chat words. This was a fun messy way to use these!
I attached a mirrored star to the gears.
I love this tag...super grungy!
I popped in an arrow and a wee clock face for the bow.
Are you committing to the 12 Tags?

I wanted to make more of a grungy container. No cookies here.
How awesome is this wood sign! These were made for me by the very talented people at Southern Ridge Trading Company! They were supposed to be attached the CHA Vintage Travel projects but the turn around time was too tight.
I got all inky with the eroded metal technique!
For the top and bottom I used some "travel" 8x8 paper stash. Then using the SRTC Gears in metallic distress paints to layer the top!
I layered the mini jalopy a few cuts deep. I had seen this done somewhere in blog land and I thought what a great idea!
I love this die!
I hope this keeps you crafting as we all wait for the new 2015 crafty goodies to start rolling in!

This is my first Art with Heart Challenge for the Eileen Hull Inspiration Team. This month theme is Fresh Ideas! Anyone can play along and there's an awesome prize, the 3D Oven die from the Vintage Kitchen collection. I love this die.
I just came on board. So I was pretty short on time. But I am sharing the new Train Case debuting at CHA.
I love anything like this that I can tuck gifts into like a gift card, cash...or Pandora. This adorable Train case offers more than enough space to tuck away secret treasures.
One of my favorite dies from the new release the possibilities are endless!
I before assembling I sprayed the case with Vintage Photo distress spray stain. Easy peasy!
I distressed the edges and added some walnut stain ink so it looks like a well worn travel case.
I LOVE these little hinges. I inked them with Antique Bronze distress paint.
I used grungepaper for the "leather strapping" and it looks amazing. All the stamps belonged to my Grandmother. I thought they would be perfect for this case.
I decided to create some "stacked" luggage with the blocks/cubes die.
