Another adventure with new to me paper and other fun goodies.

Xyron and "Hazelwood, a collection by 1canoe2 and American Craftsare creating this week to bring some great projects your way!  I hauled out my art journal for this Hazelwood Scrapbook paper!  I must admit, creating these pages for DT commitments really gives a fun, creative and eclectic variety of pages.  I am not a big paper person so creating this way really opens my creativity.

ACK... there's even these awesome Hazelwood Cork Diecuts!

Half the fun pulling out my dies to go with the Hazelwood Scrapbook papers sent to me!  Cutting the envelope and pocket envelope with the paper and add some inking with Oxide.


I may have embellished the pocket envelope then realized I should have run it through my Creative Station.  Look at that... runs it through easily.  


I attached the envelope to the pocket envelope then ran both through the Creative Station.  I wanted to try see if I could use distress crayon on the Hazelwood Cork Diecuts.  So white gesso it is.


My pages was gessoed and scribbled some distress crayon for the background.  Add some stenciling to create some layering showing the text of the pages.


I cut up one of the Hazelwood Scrapbook papers I was sent to create some layering.  I tacked the cuts together then ran the lot through my Creative Station.  So new to me and exciting I can do this stuff!


Attach all the paper die cuts and cut outs.  Another new for me... running the Hazelwood Cork Diecuts through the Create a Sticker.  Came out beautifully.  Colour and stencil the cork cut out.


This cute little cloud is cork too!  I cut the mini airplane with chipboard and some more of the pattern paper then ran it them through the Create a Sticker.


I left one cork cut out so you can see how they come!


I love to layer the Hazelwood Scrapbook Pages, cork and die cuts.


The stencil cork Hello is perfectly subtle.


I added a little grunge to the paper accents with distress crayon black soot!


Definitely a challenge to use things I would not normally create with and make it my own.


My art journal is certainly coming a long and creating for my DT this way makes it a lot of fun for me creatively.  Check out this list below for supplies used and click the image for easy shopping!

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 …

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…
