12 Tags March

It's tag time and this months tag is done.  Being so close to Easter I have bunnies on the mind so I decided to go the large Easter Elements die.
Don't forget these tags are a "Remix" so creating is twice the fun.  Click HERE for Tim's March Tag.

I love all the layers of distress crayons, gesso, spray stains and inks I got to use.  There's a Fearless metal charm at the bottom with picket fence distress crayon.


I layered the birch die for something a little more organic, tying in with the corrugated cardboard.


My "spritzing" could use some work.  But just go with it and let it evolve.


I added a metal Checkered Brad from Emerald Creeks Craft Supplies to the linen ribbon for a topper then coated some picket fence distress crayon.  I like the look.  It's fun to try new.


I used a small tiny tattered floral for the wee bow tie.  Then tucked the metal White Rabbit Charm to the side.  


You can see the foil shimmering on the corrugated tag.


It's always so fun to create these tags.  I love revisiting the techniques and combining my Sizzix dies and Ranger products.

Here's where you can find me playing

  6. Nicole, I am drooling over those metal pieces! Love your take on Tim's tag, which I found to be the most challenging yet! I guess that's why they call it a challenge! Your bright colors are there and they are beautiful paired with the birch die and the bunny! Your spritzing is like mine, so hard to get control over that spray bottle! tee hee!

Halloween Decor- Pennies a project

SIX PROJECTS ON A DIME!

Are you looking for some Halloween Decor ideas?  I have a few for you.  These are projects I have been working on for the past couple of weeks.  BANNERS
I made Boo and Beware for my 2 corner windows.  These are cut from Birthday Bash, using Recollections Halloween paper and Stampin Up Halloween Paper.
I made this Tim Holtz Banner, "Trick or Treat".  Hangs over my spooky dining room.  Black sheets are there for the holidays.
Cut from Birthday Bash and the frames/ font are a Sophisticated cut.  I added beads from Walmart and skulls are a $1 store necklace cut up.
This BIG Banner is "Happy Halloween"
The charms are Walmart and the tulle is from an old Halloween costume.  This glitter spiders are a $1 store find.

Happy Halloween!
Candles
Cheap-o-la...You can make this on a budget...promise!  I picked these candelabras up from Michaels for $12 at 50% off.  I bought them on a day they there was an additional 25% off so in the end they were less than…

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…

Paper Smooches Passport

It's no secret I love journaling of any kind including the Passport die.  Creating little books everywhere I go and with everything I have.

Xyron and Paper Smooches are teaming up this week and a ton of creativity.  Creating pages is essential to journaling and the Notebook Paper Twostamp is perfect for these inserts.  Check it out...


Roll the cover pieces of the Passport Die through the Creative Station, switching out the 5" refill for the 9" refill.  Work one side at a time to quickly adhere Wild Whispers paper.

Apply inside pattern paper, flip and repeat for the exterior paper.

To make things easier I used my new Tonic Studios Stamp Platform.  With all these pages I needed precision stamping for the notebook lines and teeny letters to create "notes".

I don't want plain pages... that's boring.  I inked and stamped the all the letters with antique linen randomly on each page.  Add a little paper detail.  But just a little ;)

Lets stencil because we can…
