Addicted to Snowmen

A Christmas Tag
Yep, I said it "CHRISTMAS"!  I have been madly working on Christmas stuff for the past few weeks to be ready for some company events I'll be attending.  So, if I get those done now, maybe I'll have time to make some holiday cards for my friends and family.  In the coming weeks I'll be sharing some Holiday goodies.
 
Look...my newest die, TH Winter Wonderland.  Ohhhh Ahhhh... I've only been learning all the Tim Holtz techniques for about a year.  I have been checking out past 12 Tags of Christmas posts and seeing what everyone was doing. 
 

Just had to play and I really do love snowmen.  I used that thick packaging material to emboss.  I cut it into the shape of my tag using the #8 Tag die. Then ran it through my embossing folder.


Pretty...I inked the snowman with Snow Cap dauber then added some Rock Candy crackle.  Once dry I popped a little Pumice Stone Distress ink and Broken China...or was it the Faded Jeans?  Then I stamped this from the new Christmas Cheer set with some glitter.  Cool...


I hand cut with some scrap grunge board these wee holly leaves, then applied some Stickles.


Hole punch and adhere the plastic tag over the snowman tag using brads.  Any will do.  I just happened to have some of these snowflakes left over.


I attached a clip to the ribbon and popped on this fun bell.  Jingle, jingle!


More tags coming to get your holiday crafty juices flowing.  Don't forget to Pin Now and Craft Later button on the top left corner.  Or just keep coming back!

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 …

It's a Wrap

It's here... finally the Book Club 2 is releasing this month.  The Inspiration Team is sharing their Book Club 2 projects all month long to inspire you.  We are so excited to share the projects we made for Creativation.  This new release is perfect for all things journaling.
I was sent patent leather in blue.  I threaded some white elastic and through the Wrap Journal and added a wee patch of Velcro.  I decided to put the shiny side  and the more muted blue on the outside for a suede look.

I picked up this little note book at the $1 store and it's a perfect fit.  I added the 

Look... Journaling Words.


I even stamped the Wrap Journal on the outside.





Throw in a couple pages.


A few pockets...

Get ready to travel.

 Finally so excited to share this Wrap Journal I have been holding on to for 6 months.  I love this new Journal and it's a great addition to your journals.  Be sure to check out all the new accessory cuts to deck out your journaling.

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...
