Remnant Bracelet


So, I was out and about stalking some of my favorite blogs when I came across this awesome bracelet, HERE.  I cannot tell you how excited I was to see what she had made.  I'm always looking for creative ways to use my stuff.  Check out Claudia's Blog, her bracelet and the link to the tutorial on how to make one for yourself!
 
I used Rangers Shrink Paper, Picket Fence Distress Stain, Black Stays On Ink and my Paris Memoir stamps.  I used this set because I loved my time in Paris!
 
I picked up the jewelry bits at Michaels.  I also used a "Word Band".  I textured the word band with my TH uber cool textured hammer.  A little heat with your heat gun and pliers to bend it.
The jumpers easily attach the stamps after they have shrunk.  Just be sure you punch the small hole before you shrink.  When it shrinks it is a perfect size for your jump rings.
I have been playing around with paints and I have had many failed attempts. I'm not sure if it's the paint or maybe my oven cooks to hot? I also painted picket fence on both sides and it worked.  After it's dry I stamped the back with the background stamp from Paris Memoir.  If you don't do that you'll see the image on the back, like the gentleman here.
The Vintage Balloon is not apart of the set but I LOVE it so I used it.
I also added some hardware including the Enamel Tag with the rubs.
 
 
These little label stamps are adorable.  I used my 2 Paris ones.
With a small paint brush I painted the shrunken stamps with various distress stains.
 
You can paint the sides of each image if you like.
 
Use whatever hardware you have on hand.  I added a plane and some gears.

You can use any stamps you have.  Mix them up of create a theme!  Fun for you or as a gift.

  2. Oh wow... super cute! You should have posted one with it on your wrist. :) Looks like a lot of work went into that. I just bought a pack of the shrink plastic, never used it before and I thought it might be cool to try it somewhere, somehow.

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…

Paper Smooches Passport

It's no secret I love journaling of any kind including the Passport die.  Creating little books everywhere I go and with everything I have.

Xyron and Paper Smooches are teaming up this week and a ton of creativity.  Creating pages is essential to journaling and the Notebook Paper Twostamp is perfect for these inserts.  Check it out...


Roll the cover pieces of the Passport Die through the Creative Station, switching out the 5" refill for the 9" refill.  Work one side at a time to quickly adhere Wild Whispers paper.

Apply inside pattern paper, flip and repeat for the exterior paper.

To make things easier I used my new Tonic Studios Stamp Platform.  With all these pages I needed precision stamping for the notebook lines and teeny letters to create "notes".

I don't want plain pages... that's boring.  I inked and stamped the all the letters with antique linen randomly on each page.  Add a little paper detail.  But just a little ;)

Lets stencil because we can…
