October's 12 Tags of 2012

Just squeaking this one in!
 
I haven't tackled a tag since the Spring!  Or have you noticed?  I couldn't pass up October's Tag.  I think you all might stage a mutiny if I didn't!  OK, so here is my version.  I mixed it up a bit because I wanted to try some other stuff.  I can be a rebel like that;)
 
Notice the "31"...ya you do!  But first things first...
 

I couldn't find the dry glitter, rock candy stuff Tim used but I did find this dry glitter stuff in the $1.50 bin at Michaels.  It's Studio G, Tinsel Glitter.  Works for me;) 


My tag is super duper cool.  I've been rusting everything in sight and I thought I would see if a tag rusts too.  Yes it does.  Then I ran it through my embossing folder...ummm it's a TH one and that's all I know.


My $1 Store has some AWESOME ribbon that shrivels when heated.  I have this rusty orange one I picked up.  The TH Tinsel was all out so I used some gold pipe cleaner, then ran my black paint dauber over it.  You can't tell...right?

OK lovin my "31", cut from Gothic Boo on grunge, then again with that Oven protector sheet.  I do have the stamp and ticket die that Tim used.  But I wasn't loving it and opted for this instead. 


My Tag:)  It's not as bright as Tim's but that's real rust so I'm OK with it!


Want to see some of the other stuff I've been rusting...



My Gears in my Media Room, I rusted the 3 small ones.


Well the EEK isn't rusty, but the Crown Royal Bottle beside it is:)


Oven Protector's for crafting.



Thanks again for popping it and checking out my October Tag:)

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 …

SIX PROJECTS ON A DIME!

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…
