12 Tags of 2013 February

 
 
 
Is anyone there?
 
I have been so busy these days with family, teaching and crafting!  I am committing myself to playing EVERY month with Tim's Tags!  I'm really squeaking this one in!  I have a photo tutorial on this tag, how I got there "WITHOUT" all the goodies Tim used.
 
I am just starting to collect some stains so I just picked up Barn Door.  I cheated with  Fire Brick Ink and water. 
 
 
I loaded the tag with Barn Door Stain.  I'm staining so fast the photo blurred.

 
I stamped the ink pad on my mat.  Clever...

 
Then spritz the water and drag the tag through.  Go through the same spritzing of the tag and dry.

 
See it worked.  I drag my scissors and inked black.
 
 
The stamp Tim used isn't available for me.  So I used what I have, Travel Blueprint! 

 
After stamping the water paper I used my craft punch to notch out the postage edge.  Oh that cutting sucks!

 
I cut the airplane out...cause I'm crafty like that.

 
I don't have the markers and have no plan of getting them.  Instead I use my inks and water blender pens.  I works!

 
I used my new Travel embossing folder which goes with my plane.

 
I have all these Fragment pieces so I grabbed a circle piece.  Then I followed the what Tim did!
 
 
Sticking the Chitchat stickers down and glue.

 
I don't have the labels so I used the ticket stamp I have.  Along with the same pointy finger!

 
Look, I have washi!  I kinda love this new tip!  I inked the washi with Black Soot.

 
All Done!

 
Scrappy Moms Stamps just sent me some new Twine with gold and silver in it.  YUM!

 
I skipped the hearts along the top.  Not a big fan of that.

 
What a fun Tag this was! 

 
BRING ON MARCH TIM!

    So cool that you had that embossing folder that went so well with your theme.

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 …
