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 …

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…
