Christmas Tag's not 12 Tags of Christmas, #3 Tag:(

However, I am having so much fun following and creating the tags I thought I would wing it.  And give you at least a tag to check out while I'm away.  I wanted to play with some of the new stuff I've been learning.  So I decided to make my Mom a Christmas Tag to go on the little bag I made for her.  I'll show you those later.

It's kind of a few things I've seen thrown together onto a tag.  I embossed the tree with some yummy green embossing powder.  Then sis a 2nd tree in detail silver, embossing it in 3 layers of silver to give it a THICK snowy look.  I don't have the snow product so the next best thing is to embossing.  Then I trimmed the snowy bows.

I wrapped the trunk with hemp twine then added this red jingle.  I punched my snowflake with green card stock for a leafy effect and added some wee red buttons as berries.  For something a little different. 

I used the Merry Christmas ticket inked with red and green. 

Lookie how pretty this tree turned out.

I'm hoping on Monday I can play some catch up and work on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.



  1. LOVE the tag you made for your mom, I'm sure she will as well! I use the 12 Days of Christmas as inspiration, not to copy... mostly because I don't have that much TH stuff ;-)

  2. Another great tag, very cute and I am sure your Mom will love it, tfs

  3. Just love the tag. Giving me great idea, im running a Secret Santa game at work and this would bet great for the gift giving.

  4. this is outstanding, so much detail on here on such a small space

  5. Another awesome tag Nicole.
    I haven't even checked out his tags yet.

    Oh I forgot to mention, I love your background and header on your cute :)

  6. Love the tree! The whole tag is cute.

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 …

Simply Spring

Just a simple card with stuff I had laying around or partially started.  What could be more easy than that.  Sometimes you just have to dig through your stuff.  Click the links below to see what I used.

You are the best... using Ranger's new Letter It stamps.

A little mixed media die cutting.

I went all inky then added a coat of clear rock candy distress glitter.  If only the shimmer came through.

Love these flowers.

A grungy little edge.

This is a simple little card with a couple of easy techniques.  We have so much snow so I guess I just need some cheery spring.

Watercoloring with Butterflies & Oxides

The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team has been sharing tutorials all month long.  I do have a video tutorial for this card but it won't be read for awhile.  Hey, it happens.  I at least have a couple of photo's until the whole video is posted on Creative Scrapbooker Magazines website.

Loving the new Oxide inks especially as we approach those soft easter pallets.

A little stamping.

I know it's not a box or cool journal.  One of my favourite dies is the Birds & Butterflies thinlit.  Yep, there are pretty little dies perfect for card making too.

I love the intricate butterfly to layer over.

A simple card and no it's not even a journal.

I will share the video when it's all done and posted.  I will even embed it in the post too.
Onto next month...
