Stocking Stuffer


Looking for a quick last minute stocking stuffer? 

Instead of making snowman poop, reindeer poop or Grinch poop I just made this wrapper.  My intent was to make snowman poop.  But I just wasn't feeling it.  So instead I just kept it simple.  To make these mint wrappers simply measure the height and width and cut.  Then score along the sides.  In this case I used Tic Tacs.  I'm HORRIBLE with numbers so I was a bit frustrated with the measurements.  But I eventually got there.

This little Santa postage stamp is the cutest stamped on Kraft.  I added a little twine to tie it all together.  The paper I used is a Recollections Kraft Holiday pack. 

I used the small rounded corners punch to round the corners. 

These little Tic Tacs are all spruced up!

These would work with gum packs to or any mint treat.  What a fun crafty way to add a little flare to your Christmas Stockings. 

This will be my last post before Christmas.  I'll be spending the weekend with my family, cooking and relaxing.  Wishing you and yours a splendid Holiday.  And remember to take time to relax and enjoy.  The holidays after all are about spending time with those you love, remembering those that have left us and just enjoying the moment.

  6. I really like the vintage look you pulled off. Neat that there's no 'poop' in sight, also!! My mom goes through tic-tacs like a madwoman - I'm so liftin' this!

  7. I should use this idea and come up with a clever saying about not smoking. A friend of mine is trying to quit and he used tic tacs to help supplement, so maybe a cute tic tac holder and a helpful saying will help him achieve his goals.

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 …

Mixed Media Canvas w/ Baked Texture

What's new?  Well I am stretching my mixed media skills or lack thereof so playing with paints the Baked Texture embossing powders on canvas is really new to me.  Keep in mind I am playing and learning as I go.

There is a lot of laying and overlapping of powders.

Even a little stamping and embossing.

Quotes get inked and embossed too.

Even theGear Corners from Southern Ridge are layered.

The canvas background is dylusions paints, stamping and a little fun making rings with various lids and an eraser.

Grungy too.

I am digging this new creative direction I am exploring.  Just having fun and sharing as I go... good or not it's all about experimenting.

Art Journaling with Baked Texture

I recently got a Dylusions Journal to play and experiment with.  I am learning to play with Dylusions paints and at this point I'm I am loving it.  
Check out my second pages where I throw in the new Seth ApterBaked Texture embossing powders.

See... yummy right!
I stamped my stamps Fallen Blossom and Upstream stamps and embossed with clear embossing powder.  Then add the paint. Blend the colours to create an underwater look then in comes the yummy, cake batter smelling Dirty Sand embossing powder. Add some black marble paint on the edges and then repeat the same on the top with Deep Sea ep.  To create a wispy effect I gently used a paint brush to brush off some powder. Heat and yum!  Load up the bubbles stencil with some fresh lime paint with a sponge. Spray and layer onto the pages.  Trying paint on stamps too and hey it works! Stamp, add some Big Talk stickers, a little smudging and you're creating layers to a page.  BAM!  I cut the garden greens, added more paint and coate…
