For the Love of...

COFFEE!!!

Oh how I love my Timmies...coffee!  My Crafty BFF just got this Tim Hortons Logo Stamp from Viva Las Vegas Stamps.  I have to get it right back to her (because she knows I'll keep it) so I needed to make a card... ASAP! 

OH MY GOSH I love it!  #itsacanadianthing


I cut the Freshly Brewed die using mat board and some Sizzix leather paper for the sleeve and . Alphanumeric Marquee Then I was itching to use the new Mixed Media Christmas Thinlit.  


To keep that coffee vibe I attached some burlap and inked up some Splat Coffee rings.  I continued the coffee mess on the inside.


Simplify Token wrapped onto an arrow adornment.  I was tempted to add some distress crayon, but to token said to Simplify... so I did.


The cup is inked with Tim's signature red cup.  


 The Leather Paper stamped looks just like the sleeves at Timmies.


I just love the Alphanumeric Marquee "COFFEE" and a strip of burlap.


I may have made this mess this morning with my own Timmies...


I hope I don't get in trouble for using my husbands's coffee beans for this...


I am a HUGE Timmies fan so I adore this stamp!  I really wanted to visit Viva Las Vegas Stamps when I was there last year.  But the only day I had time they were closed... BOO!  

Maybe next year...

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…
