Winter is Coming

Have you seen the new Snowglobe?  Sure you have!  

This is not for the faint of heart and you really have to be on top of your cuts!  However, the end result is STUNNING and well worth it.  I stuck to the image on the packaging so I could understand how it all comes together.  


My phone died but I did manage to get a few shots off before I had to plug it in!  Keep in mind you need to cut some of these a couple of times since you layer.  Next time I would just cut my watercolor paper 2 times. 


I feel like I'm in Austria looking at this!


I added dimension.


Here's where you layer with the lite up windows.


I used clear rock candy on all the trees, mountains and snow for that sugary look!


The Believe is from my new Woodland Winter stamp set cut and layered with the Labels Thinlit dies.


Another sentiment stamp from my new stamp set Woodland Winter.  For fun I cut the poinsettias with the new Mixed Media Christmas Thinlit then I coloured it up with Distress Crayons.


All the bits for the globe are water colored with Distress Markers.


I love this fun holiday die!  I hope this gives you some ideas for your holiday projects coming up.  After all... Winter is Coming!

  4. I saw this demoed on TV recently and thought it too fiddly but it looks amazing when assembled - it really does look like Austria or perhaps the main street in Banff looking towards the mountain. But whatever - it looks fabulous!! Anne xx

Journaling Tuck Spots and Pockets

It is official... I am addicted to Journaling.  This is an inspiration post... why?  I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas.  I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.  
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.

Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap ShotzMarch Scrapbook Kit.

A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.

Nicole Wright Designs Fallen Blossomis used on the tag, stamped and watercolored with worn lipstick oxide ink.

I used pages from my 115 year old art journal to create another mini.  Stamping and watercoloring throughout each page with Garden Flower and my stamp set Fallen Blossom.

Tuck spots and pockets for stuffing notes.  

The March Kit with the new Memoranda paper is perfect on it's own.  But I still cut it up and collaged with it.

I fussy cut a found relative since I am still trying to get my hands on …

Thank You Xyron

Well what a fun year it has been.  Xyron took me on with no experience and never even owning one.  Thank you to my awesome team and a awesome product to design with.  
The team is designing with their favourite Xyron product and I picked the Sticker Maker.  This handy little machine is perfect for my love of sentiments and letters.  A perfect pairing with my Sizzix Dies.

To create the backgrounds I need a thick cardstock that can take this amount of paint... Super Stock!  I created a colourful base for these wee Alphanumeric Thin letters.  

I lined the little letters up and ran them through my Vagabond.

Each little letters slides into the sticker maker easily.  I add them all one after another pull.  So quick and easy!  

I created the background for the card much the same way as the letters.  Creating a paper ribbon while I was at it.

With the ribbon and bow created I popped the ribbon part through the sticker maker.

Peel and stick.  It's hard to pick one Xyron product.  I often …

Last Minute Christmas Card

We are always looking for last minute card ideas.  Here is a great quick card to whip up in no time.  A little paper, embossing powder and of course the 3" disposable sticker maker.  How time flies, can you believe this is my last post for 2017 forXyron.  


With my dies I cut a bunch of paper including super stock for the ornaments.  Create a resist with clear embossing powder for inking.

Here's my favourite part... running my dies through the Xyron 3" Disposable Sticker Maker.  I just feed it like it's hungry.
Run a line of adhesive on the back of the paper for the twine to attach too and again on the chip quotes.  I stamped the sentiment from my stamp set Woodland Winter.

Check out this simple quick card.

Look how pretty my stamp looks here.



Thanks for stopping by and wishing you all a wonderful holiday.
