Passport to the World

The other day a big box of goodies arrived via the big brown truck.  Nothing like Happy Mail.  Some of the goodies packed away was a pile of papers perfect for travel crafting!

Xyron packed a box of stuff you'll be seeing over the coming weeks.  This project is decked out with Teresa Collins papers, ink and accessories.  The knew right away I wanted to use my Passport Sizzix die.


I cut the passport with chipboard and cut the Wanderlust paper to deck it out.  I sprayed the spine cut with black soot distress spray and dragged Gold Shine ink over it.


I attached all the pattern paper pieces to the chipboard with the Xyron tape.  Inking the edges with black soot distress ink and more Gold Shine for a worn look.


A variety of mini sizzix die cuts... all travel related cut with chipboard and pattern paper.  I ran the chipboard cuts through the create a sticker for the back of the chipboard.  


The paper cuts go through the Creative Station and attach to the chipboard.  In moments the die cuts are ready to attach to the Passport.

Taking the golden paperclips and coating them in alcohol ink makes them more rustic, perfect for my style.  I heard the   Creative Station is perfects for adding adhesive for thick clear cardstock without showing the sticky...

Ohhh it worked!  Fun part... stamping and decorating!


Layering the pages with these coordinating chipboard cutouts makes them thick and full perfect for journaling around.  You can use the gold shine ink for adding colour to the string.  The string pieces dry right away and you're ready to thread the pages and tie it off to the book.


I cut some tabs from the Tiny Tabs and Tags die and inked up the stamp sayings to attach the pages.


Layered mini die cuts and pattern papers for this pretty travel passport.


Little snippets of papery fun to write memories.


This passport takes no time at all to assemble with all the great paper and coordinating embellishments.

Love how this turned out!

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…

Apothecary Curiosities Coffin

Creepy coffin, I love this one!  I saw these little wooden coffins at the $1 Store and had to get one.  I ended up making this for a class and everyone loved making them.  Halloween is the best!  All the creepy stuff I get away with creating! I picked up these great skeletons at Michaels on a string of garland...6 per rope.  With a little force he fits! I made a template of the coffin and cut Tim Holtz Laboratorie paper to fir in the back. I accidentally broke my skeleton's arm.  Oops!  So, I glued his arm holding the glitter pumpkin.  SAVE! I picked up these skulls on a bracelet for $1.  Layering the Curiosities Coffin is key!  You want to look at the layers, like mesh, pen nib and a spider! I added the "shelves" using popsicle sticks cut to size.  This way it has a cabinet feel. The Apothecary Remnant Rubs are so perfect of the glass bottles full of eyes! Adding a little Spanish Moss makes it all creepy. I LOVE HIM! After the sprayed coffins were dry I sanded them to …

A BEVY OF MONSTERS

***WARNING...CUTE ALERT***

The Monsters and Creeps are out and around.  So lock your doors to keep safe and sound.
If you are looking for a great Halloween card that is UNDER 10 MINUTES to build this is it.  I made a variety of these to give you different ideas of creeps you can make.  From start to finish these Halloween cards are a breeze and would be perfect for a class, office and for some friends.  I made these in between making projects...mostly waiting for things to dry!  The googlie eyes are different sizes make them so cute. 
All the cards are stamped with Scrappy Moms Stamps Halloween set Bewitched! Mummy

Frankenstein
Candy Corn
Vampire, I love this one!  I didn't distress the white glitter paper.  Then added this red glitter glue to the fangs.
Ghost, I posted this the other day HERE
All my fun cards together
I cut the cards to 5x5.  Then I cut a 4 3/3x 4 3/4 black for the black behind the googlie eyes.  Pick your coloured carstock and rip.  I distressed the torn edges a bit then…
