Punch Art Polar and a Stamp or 2

New Stamp Release
 
I got some new Scrappy Moms Stamps in the mail last week and went straight to my paper! This card took no time at all to whip together, maybe 20 minutes.  I ran the silver paper through my snowflake folder (the one that comes with the Tim Holtz Snowman folder) and the snowflake is cut on grunge from the Winter Wonderland die with some crackle white paint.  I made the card to 5x5 cause I was feelin crazy:)
 
For the sentiment I grabbed "Here comes Santa Paws" from the Critter Crazy set stamped and clear embossed.  I popped this little guys head up too and layered his behind in a paper snow mound.
 
*Fun Fact* Did you know is Churchill Manitoba is the Polar Bear Capital of the World and it is the law to leave your doors unlooked.  Just incase someone needs to duck in to get away from a Polar Bear.  Cool EH!

 
I used 1 3/4" round SU punch for the head and body, 3/4" round SU punch for the ears and the middle oval SU punch for the snout.  Just cut on a slight curve for the snout.
 
Don't forget the inside.  This sentiment is from the new Christmas Cheer.

 
For the border, I punched the Martha Stewart Drippy Goo layered with the blue and white card stock, then added some glitter glue.  A little TH Tinsel is added for bling.

 
Don't forget the button nose and ink in some dot eyes.  Tear your paper to make snow mounds and add some more sparkle for the snow.

 


 
"Dear Santa, I can explain..." is my fav from the Christmas Cheer set.  I'm going to have some fun with that!

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...
