12 Tags of 2012- February

Finally I got my 1st tag done for 2012.  

 As you may recall I don't have a ton of Tim stuff, infact I had no stamps, folder or die required for this tag.  Here is my version of Tims first tag of 2012...plus a bonus tag.  I'll show you how I made this tag work with almost no goodies used in Tim's tag. 

I don't have the cupid die used.  I went to the $1 Store and found these jelly cupids.  Not what I wanted but I thought I would give it a shot.  I traced the jelly's onto a cereal box and because they are jelly they kinda do ok sticking.


I found these metal hearts at the same time and thought they would be good to use instead of the honeycomb.  It was Valentines day so the LSS was out of red honeycomb.  I used a page from the dictionary and tore off stripes.  I cut the hearts by hand using a cereal box, then used spray adhesive to apply the ruffled paper. 


Instead of the border die, I used scrap ribbon.  But really any boarder punch will do if you don't have the Vintage Lace die. 

My 2nd Variation

On both tags I stamped a background stamp, SU Tres Chic inked with Snow Cap.  I embossed both tags with Elegant Bouquet embossing folder and then sprayed with a pearl.  I kept the tags similar.  The ruffled heart wasn't as nice as the other one as I was learning on this heart.  But it turned out OK.

For this sentiment I wanted to use "Love Stuck" my SMS Crazy for You set.  I wanted to make mini banners.

Here are my 2 tags together.

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…

Paper Smooches Passport

It's no secret I love journaling of any kind including the Passport die.  Creating little books everywhere I go and with everything I have.

Xyron and Paper Smooches are teaming up this week and a ton of creativity.  Creating pages is essential to journaling and the Notebook Paper Twostamp is perfect for these inserts.  Check it out...


Roll the cover pieces of the Passport Die through the Creative Station, switching out the 5" refill for the 9" refill.  Work one side at a time to quickly adhere Wild Whispers paper.

Apply inside pattern paper, flip and repeat for the exterior paper.

To make things easier I used my new Tonic Studios Stamp Platform.  With all these pages I needed precision stamping for the notebook lines and teeny letters to create "notes".

I don't want plain pages... that's boring.  I inked and stamped the all the letters with antique linen randomly on each page.  Add a little paper detail.  But just a little ;)

Lets stencil because we can…
