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.

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.

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

New Release- Stamp and Photo Storage

All month the Inspiration Team for Eileen Hull is thrilled to be showing off the her newest Book Club Collection.  Here's my little glimpse at the Stamp and Photo Storagedie.  There is nothing this decent size die can't do... or hold!  In this case Letter's to Santa.  I even combined the Trinket Box & Frame to frame out Santa.


I stamped the Woodland Winter Santa designed by yours truly onto watercolor paper and used my Scribble sticks to add a little color.
I cut a piece of clear packaging and ran it through my little Xyron Disposable Sticker Makerto create a cover for my Santa.  Perfection!

I colored up the Floral Arch and Words arch to attach to the bottom and top and attached.  I used some Distress Woodgrain Cardstock to wrap my Stamp and Photo Storage. I cut Super StockCardstock to fit inside.  Inking and stamping like crazy all tied off with some postal twine.  The Correspondence Stamp Set is perfect.


I mounted the Trinket Box & Frame to the Stamp and Storage…

Pumpkin Parts Thanksgiving w/ Xyron

While my Thanksgiving may be over it is coming soon south of the border.

Xyronis getting ready for holiday season and what better way then with the Pumpkin Parts die cut.  This easy card is layered with paper and ink to create a festive pumpkin card.  The team will be sharing their fall inspired projects all week so be sure to pop by for lots of inspiration.



The Create a Sticker is great for all the smaller pieces to layer and quickly put together.  For a quick background stamp the craft sheet with Distress Oxides, spray and drag.
I cut Thanksgiving from the Sentiment Words Thinlit and attached with the Sticker Maker.Fall Foliage has this little hay die cut that I added to the bottom of the pumpkin attached the Xyron Mega Runner.
I clipped a couple of the Twisted pieces for a little green for the top of the pumpkin.





Don't miss any of the inspiration with the rest of the Xyron Team.
