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 …

Halloween Decor- Pennies a project

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…
