Thanks for Paul McCartney

Well, this past weekend was an exciting one for my 16 year old daughter.  I may have mentioned what a massive Beatles fan she is.  This past summer we promised her if Paul McCartney ever came close to us we would try to get her tickets.  Well, 3 months later (wouldn't you know it) the dates were announced and we got her floor tickets to see her idol Paul McCartney in Vancouver BC.  Merry Christmas, Happy Birthday.... and Merry Christmas!
 
We called it the Ultimate Father/Daughter Date!  Sunday Nov 25th Mercedes and her Dad boarded a plane for Vancouver to see Paul Live at BC Place Stadium.  When she got home yesterday, she was full of stories and excitment.  So we decided to make her Daddy a Thank You card. 
 
I grabbed an image from Google and printed for the grunge Union Jack paper, much like the Headboard I made for her.... remember? Then cut out IMAGINE with my TH Movers and Shapers die.

 
Mercedes and I made this card together *snort* more like 70/30!  But... she was present in charge of glue, punching, photo's and adhering.  She also picked the sentiment from SMS, Many Thanks stamp set.

 
Paul's tribute to John, "Give Peace a Chance"

Welcome back to Vancouver after 48 years!
 
 
What a lovely way to thank her Daddy for a day she will never forget.  She showed me what she wrote in the card.  Oh ya, he's gonna cry!

  2. Wow, what a lucky girl!! I personally would love to see Paul McCartney and I'm a mom of a 24 year old. Isn't it neat that our kids can relate and enjoy the same music that we do? Great card that you made together! TFS.

  3. Wonderful concert memory. I saw Paul Mc Cartney in concert at the American Airlines Center (AAC) in Dallas, TX. Enjoyed the concert. My fav concert of all is Rod Stewart. He walked through the audience and allowed photography. A close second is Elton John concert. 3rd fav concert is Adam Lambert that I saw at the Winstar Casino in OK. Paul's concert is my 4th fav.

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 …

Last Minute Christmas Card

We are always looking for last minute card ideas.  Here is a great quick card to whip up in no time.  A little paper, embossing powder and of course the 3" disposable sticker maker.  How time flies, can you believe this is my last post for 2017 forXyron.  


With my dies I cut a bunch of paper including super stock for the ornaments.  Create a resist with clear embossing powder for inking.

Here's my favourite part... running my dies through the Xyron 3" Disposable Sticker Maker.  I just feed it like it's hungry.
Run a line of adhesive on the back of the paper for the twine to attach too and again on the chip quotes.  I stamped the sentiment from my stamp set Woodland Winter.

Check out this simple quick card.

Look how pretty my stamp looks here.



Thanks for stopping by and wishing you all a wonderful holiday.

Thank You Xyron

Well what a fun year it has been.  Xyron took me on with no experience and never even owning one.  Thank you to my awesome team and a awesome product to design with.  
The team is designing with their favourite Xyron product and I picked the Sticker Maker.  This handy little machine is perfect for my love of sentiments and letters.  A perfect pairing with my Sizzix Dies.

To create the backgrounds I need a thick cardstock that can take this amount of paint... Super Stock!  I created a colourful base for these wee Alphanumeric Thin letters.  

I lined the little letters up and ran them through my Vagabond.

Each little letters slides into the sticker maker easily.  I add them all one after another pull.  So quick and easy!  

I created the background for the card much the same way as the letters.  Creating a paper ribbon while I was at it.

With the ribbon and bow created I popped the ribbon part through the sticker maker.

Peel and stick.  It's hard to pick one Xyron product.  I often …
