Poinsettia

Break out the Jingles... Christmas crafting is happening!

There's a new team up this week between Xyron and Waffle Flower and all week the team is sharing some awesome inspirational projects.  Check out this step by step using my pages from a 115 year old book and my Mega Runner pulling it all together.


I gathered some Tidings paper and Super Stock for the base of my card.  I then grabbed my very old pages for the tattered poinsettia and background with a little white gesso to take the inking.

The tattered poinsettia is spray stained and added a little matching ink to punch it up.  The Stamp Platform is perfect for stamping this 115 year old paper.  No mistakes when it comes to working with paper this old.


OK, maybe one mistake!  Paper this old is fragile and it stuck to the stamps.  But that's OK that's what glue and adhesive is for.  I mounted the paper to a piece of super stock with the mega runner.  Then applied a little glue n' seal for the ripped off bit.  Like it never happened!  


Back to colouring with my Scribble Sticks and the sticker Maker comes in handle for my holiday words and mini tag I stamped! 

One of my favourite dies is the tattered poinsettia.  I love how well it goes with the Waffle Flower Poinsettia Stamp Set.  A perfect pairing! 

It has a vintage feel!

Thank you checking out my little Waffle Flower tutorial.  Don't miss out on all the creative fun this week!  Get your holiday crafts in gear!

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 …

Make Watercoloring Easy with Clearsnap Blends

Ohhhh the Blends are here and I am loving them!  I am super excited to play with Eileen Hull's Clearsnap Colorbox Blends.  This month the Inspiration Team has been sharing their projects and they have been AMAZING!
Follow this easy tutorial for watercoloring with Blends.

I pulled out the watercolor paper grabbed my floral dies heart & soul and pansy.  Grabbed my Blends and Koi stamp.

OH MY GOODNESS... Look at how the Blends work with my Koi stamp.  I randomly applied the Blends and spritz with water then stamp.  I designed this Koi stamp to have a watercolor effect when stamping so perfecto!

The pansy die is cut and ready for Blends.  I popped some colour on my mat, spritz and drag.  I inked the edges a bit then ran my watercolor pen to soften.  The perfect lily pad.  Repeat this step for the heart & soul in hues of blue Blends.

With the Koi dry apply some of the Blends in blue, spritz and use a watercolor pen for this water step.  Randomly apply the shades of blue to cre…

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…
