Dashing through the Snow Holiday Tag #1

I've spent the past month working really hard on bunch of holiday goodies.  And since I know you all are gearing up for some Holiday crafting there's no time like the present to start posting. 
 
This is tag is easily the simplest tag I've made but I really love it.  You can use any inks for the back ground but I used TH Forest Moss, Peeled Paint and Crushed Olive.  Blend the inks, splatter some water on the tag and finish off with some gold in the Mini Misters! 
 
I used a whole bunch of dies including the new TH Tree Line die all cut on Grunge Board, but carve up some cereal boxes works too.  I cut the Movers and Shapers Mini Jalopy and mounted the Mini Pine Tree on top.  I tied it on the Jalopy with some twine, a gold star and some white glitter glue for snow. 

 
You know how TH brings out these charms for the holiday's...well...I was too early.  But the everyday charms work too.  I stamped some snowflakes using Stampin Up Whisper White Craft Ink randomly along the top.
 
 
Rock Candy Crackle is generously applied to all my die cuts.  Then along the bottom a Small piece of cotton ball for snow.  This makes it look fluffy and light. 

 
This tag was all because I really wanted to stamp my Tall Trees stamp.  I just love this stamp. 

 
Watch for more Christmas Tags in the coming weeks.  These have all been made for upcoming Christmas Parties.  Every year I make something for the staff where my husband works to giveaway. Click HERE to see last years Gift Giveaway.
 
And watch for next week when I show the whole gift put together for the All Things Altered Winter Blog Hop!

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 …

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.

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…
