12 Tags of 2016: August Remix

Well, hello there stranger!  

You may notice some dust or cobwebs... do not be alarmed.  My blog gets very quiet in the summer.  Consider this the calm before the holiday storm.  When all the new dies and stamps start releasing and I am non stop playing!  

You may have noticed there's no tag here.  There's nothing getting by you crafty peeps;)  There are so many summer birthday's so I decided to go crazy and make my tag into a card!  I did use a tag.  I just cut the top off.


Oh man I went nuts with the dies!  There were different size cutting pads, magnet plate and a well loved Vagabond.  Great way to use up some wee scraps!



Have you tried the Sizzix Leather Paper yet?  It's perfect to layer!  Here comes the remix with the stain, brayer and inking.


I cut a tag for the front and then made an "inside" distress piece too.  Ohhhh more leather paper with some inking and spritzing.  Yep, you can add water and heat to these.  Gotta love the Notebook Edging.


INK EVERYTHING!  


OK, so sometimes my markers get a wee bit dry and don't want to Spritz.  I know... BOO!  That's OK.  Spritz a little water onto the craft sheet, scribble the nib and BAM... You're spritzing.  


It's a tag layered onto a card. 


Love the scraps, inking and spritzing.


There's that layered Handwritten Birthday using Sizzix Leather Paper.  


A mirrored star and Hello Friend!


Check it out... just the right angle and SHAZAM... instant shine.


Lookie, I used the tiny attacher.  Is it a designer feature or am I fixing a mistake?  Hmmmm... you'll never break me.


ACK... don;t forget the inside.  Handwritten Celebration stamped, distressing and a Craft Glassine leafy bit.


Make a Wish


Tim's August Tag


As always it's fun to explore your creativity and expand.  Shhh... don't tell anyone I don't own the wildflower die that was used... YET!  

OK you guys enjoy your weekend.  Thanks for not forgetting about me.

HEY USA... IT'S ALMOST YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!!

Celebrating the 4th of July with this patriotic card.  Since I have all these adorable paper dolls I dug through and found this pretty little girl holding the flag and wearing a pretty little sash.  My Mom's husband is American and this is his first July 4th since moving to Canada.  I wanted to whip up a card celebrating his homeland.

I finally get to use some of my seasonal paper with all these patriotic images.

My paper doll is coloured up with distress markers.

I added the dog... even he is inky with antique linen.

I inked the background and used the stars stencil... subtle and pretty.

Happy {almost} July of 4th

I hope all my American Friends a very special Happy Birthday.  Thanks for stopping by for this Canadian version on a Patriotic card. 

Make Over

Please be patient while my team and I (guys pictured below) rebuild my blog.

Due to unforeseen and sudden non communicated policy changes (by a certain online image hosting website) I have had to remove a lot of content I have built for my blog.  At some point my blog had a major system failure causing me to rebuild and start over.  Boo

Please note this change will not be "lipstick on a pig" and all future content will be AWESOME.  In the coming months I will be making adjustments to provide some of the best crafty eye candy out there.  YAY!


Thank you for your continued support, love and all around awesomeness!
And thanks a lot...
