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!

Liberty

HEY USA... IT'S ALMOST YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!!

Celebrating the 4th of July with this patriotic card.  Since I have all these adorable paper dolls I dug through and found this pretty little girl holding the flag and wearing a pretty little sash.  My Mom's husband is American and this is his first July 4th since moving to Canada.  I wanted to whip up a card celebrating his homeland.

I finally get to use some of my seasonal paper with all these patriotic images.

My paper doll is coloured up with distress markers.

I added the dog... even he is inky with antique linen.

I inked the background and used the stars stencil... subtle and pretty.

Happy {almost} July of 4th

I hope all my American Friends a very special Happy Birthday.  Thanks for stopping by for this Canadian version on a Patriotic card. 

Wildflowers

I may live in a snow globe but I can dream of Wildflowers!  
Just dusting off the cobwebs on my blog.  I try to take a creative break or slowdown during Jan/ Feb.  However, I have been creating still!  So, I did just get Sizzix shipment with some new goodies including the new Wildflowers 2!

I have all the floral dies but the wildflowers are my thing!  I love them.  I started cutting the Wildflowers,Wildflowers 2 and the new Small Tattered Florals.  All the flowers are inked with Magenta Nuance Pigment Powders.

The Small Tattered Florals are so teeny!  I just found a set of Stylus Tools... it came in a 3 pack and I wasn't sure if I need 3 but YA I do!  Spray and roll!
Look how the smallest floral rolls with the smallest stylus tool.  SCORE!  Embossing time.

I also got the new Flourish Texture Fadeand it is awesome. For inking I used Eileen Hull Colorbox Color Blends.  Creating strips of color with the built in sponge and blending with my blending pen.

This Watering Can is so adora…
