Christmas Luminary + Plus Sneek Peek

 
I'm working on a BIG Christmas Project and yesterday my 3D Luminary Big Die came!  Of coarse I had to add it to my holiday project! 
 
I was SO lucky to be told about a Canadian online crafty store, R & R Scrapbooking by a fellow crafter!  Rhea is awesome and I think we are now BFF's!  I was super excited she had the 3 D Luminary die (I couldn't live without) and the Antiquities Frosted embossing powder (for the chalkboard technique).  OMG I have to be careful on her site.    OH and she ships pretty much that day so your goodies arrive the next day.  Us crafters are impatient.  Be sure to check her scrappy site out!  OK enough sucking up of my shameless plugging of R & R Scrapbooking.
 
 
I used paper (I recommend paper) and layered with some thin chipboard.  It's really fussy to get those folds so paper is best.  I tried thick chipboard, thin chipboard and grunge paper.  Paper was easiest.  I have some of that snowy pen gunk that puffs up when heated.  The puffy looks silly by itself but when its all together it will be cool! 
 
This Santa was in a snow globe.  He's kinda vintage looking and my camera isn't blurry, he is.  I did a crackled glass technique on him which is hard to see.  He's small.
OMG this is my favourite technique (or 1 of many) from the Creative Chemistry 102 class.  I adore this crack class finish.  I made the glass with that thick plastic packaging stuff.  You know...that stuff!  With a light tucked in there it will look awesome!
 
Be sure to check back.  I have been madly crafting for days.  I'm glued, glittered, inked and many burns from my glue gun.  Can't wait to show you...it's been a year in the planning.  Or at least thinking about it!

  1. I love that you reused an object from a snow globe. I have a lot of issues when making something worrying that it won't look right, truth is when all finished it all does come together. This is awesome.

    1. I found a small snow globe at the $1 Store, then took a hammer to it. Now that was fun!

  3. I can't believe you saw it and didn't get it! The Luminary's are so cute. Wouldn't they be cute all strung like patio lanterns and moose paper for your cottage!

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...
