Fall Brownstone

The falling leaves have been stunning these past weeks.  If you follow me you know I love to create for Fall. When I get to create for Creative Scrapbooker Magazine I get to make Fall projects in the spring.  Although this project didn't make it in the magazine I do get to still blog it.    

I snapped off a few photo's.  Honestly, sometimes I get lost in the creation and loose all track of time and what I should be doing!  So limited how to photo's for this post.


You need a few dwellings like the Village Brownstone, Village CottageVillage Rooftops, .  For the this rooftop I cut up a piece of oven liner and inked it with some alcohol ink.  I also used some woodgrain paper/ oven liner on the Village Dwelling and more oven liner on the other brownstone embossed with the Basket Weave texture fade.


Once it's inked I cut, layered and trimmed the rooftop.  All the dwellings have been layered in paper. I did use some of the cuts from the Village Bungalow, shutters, dormers and fence pieces.  I attached the dormers to the Brownstone.


Accessorizing is the best part!  I used these small wood dowels for the pillars, hardware and twine for a rustic look.


Adding the inked up mini woodland trees is like landscaping for a crafter.  I cut a bunch of the fence pieces on chipboard to create these yards and gates.


The Fall Foliage leaves are sprinkled about and the Basket Weave texture fade roof looks amazing!


I love all the pumpkins, trees and leaves tucked all around the Village.  


The great thing about these villages is you can create them for ever season and add on to them each year. Now... to keep my cats away from them!

  6. I can just picture you in your studio wringing your hands and giggling with delight as you spend hours cutting, assembling, detailing and landscaping your village! How wonderful this village is, and I appreciate all the work that went into it! The devil's in those wonderful, thoughtful details! My favorite trick you pulled here is using the oven liner-genius!

    I had to laugh about your cats. Biskit has a favorite pass-time. She jumps on top of the upright freezer and pulls all the tiny leaves off a project I made a couple years ago (They are really crunchy by now), and drops them to the floor. Good luck with yours!

    Thank you, too, for sharing this at Anything But Cute. A perfect Autumn Day! Hugs! Sara Emily DT

Jarred Florals

How's your summer so far?  Me... I am just returning from a long vacation from down south.  So I am probably folding a lot of laundry. TheXyronTeam andACCOare playing all week with staplers and cutters.  Which means anything goes creatively!  I am so thrilled to use their Guillotine Trimmer LiteI don't own one so this is super exciting... 10 papers at one time!  
(all supplies used is linked for your convenience)

Time to crack into my new Flower Jar stamps and Framelits dies and a whole lot of colouring.
Once the colouring was done I added a little touch of dimension to these teeny wildflowers with a stylus and water.  It's my first cut with the Guillotine Trimmer Lite, dang thats sharp.  Even for small cuts.
I ran the stitched circle cut through the Creative Station then used the Create a Sticker for the adorable teeny wildflowers.
The Pondering Words "WONDERFUL" cut is perfectly cut with the Guillotine Trimmer for this 3/4" cut.  I popped it on the edges …

Wanderlust

I am pretty sure I have the "Wanderlust" bug!  I wanted to try something different so I decided to try some texture paste on the cover.  The matboard is tough enough to handle some texture paste.  I used chalk paint and texture paste to decorate my cover instead of paper.


Cut the superstock paper to fir the journal, 8x8 scoring in the centre to create a page.  I used oxides and stenciling to create a dynamic page.
Die cutting on pattern paper for some great elements.  Love the brush and foam for those small dies Especially the Gearhead die!  
See, all those little bits popped right out!  More inking and layering for these pages.  Making life easier with the Creative Station and these smaller detailed dies.
Lets make some trophy's!  I coated them with hammered metal embossing powder and coloured some distress crayons to distress it.
I cut and inked the Heart and Soul flower with more pattern paper.
I love the Ornate Frame #2creating some great vintage elements for this …

Fall Colours

OK, I know, I know we are only half way through summer and already there are fall leaves on my blog!  I really couldn't help myself.  I mean... you know me! This week Xyron and Newton's Nook are teaming up for some... AWESOMENESS!  Of course I had to go for these gorgeous leafy stamps.  Can you imagine these embossed or in an art journal!  So many creative ways to make stuff.

I gathered some goodies including my Tag and Tie to make a Kraft Tag for the sentiment. A little bit of stamping and inking goes a long way.  

I stamped the wee pumpkin from the Falling for You set (linked below) and coloured with Stabilo Woody 3 in 1 pencils.  These are great for watercoloring too.  Yep, it happens from time to time... I fussy cut the pumpkins out.

I stamped the Beautiful Leaves stamp (linked below) with a blend of Oxide Inks.  Stamping again on inky scrap paper with large maple leaf... yep, more fussy cutting.  Oi...

More stamping on the background and then run through the Creative Sta…
