Less than "10 Minute" Card

I literary had 10 minutes to make this card.  I've said it a million times.  When you have extra paints, stains or inks on your craft mat grab a scrap and use up that product!  This card is a perfect example.  I had extra paint on my mat so I ran through an extra tag to use it up.  I threw it in my box and there it waited until now. 
 
With no time I made this in just over 5 minutes.
 
  A quick stamp with the Classic #1 dragon fly and it's quickly taking shape.
 
 
I always have scraps and left overs from other projects ready to use.  This film strip and scrap paper pieces are left over from the Retro TV project.  The Cancer Sucks stamp is a Scrappy Moms Stamp from when I was on their DT.  LOVE this set!
 
 
I usually layer some paper on the inside.  But remember, no time.  So I stamped my #hastags stamp right to the kraft inside.
 
 
I cut the tag top off and ran it through my vagabond using the torn edges die.
 
 
I have a stack of scraps full of stains, paints and inks waiting to be used in a snap.  Don't wipe up extra product.  Soak it up and use it when you need a card in a hurry!
 
Thanks for stopping by and I so love reading all your sweet comments!  Hope you're liking my blog changes!

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 …

TUTORIAL; Little Drummmer Boy...or Wooden Horse

I made a Christmas Drum!  I think I love this one more than myChristmas Village!  One of my "ENABLER" crafty peeps told me about a Christmas Drum she pinned on Pinterest, click HERE to see the Pin.  I fell in love!  I started collecting the goodies a couple weeks ago and finally sat down to build it yesterday.  It only took a couple hours and it was a blast to create.  Check out this beautiful Christmas Drum. I started with a teaser post on my newInstagram account.  I inked up these TH Bottle Brush trees with re-inkers!  I started with this round hat box I found at Michaels for 50% off.  I like it because it was already a vintage paper box.  Simply Stunning!  I made a line all the way around the base of the lid.  This way I know where to stop when adding the beads.  If you don't stop you won't be able to close the lid.  Don't worry, you won't see the line.  I used some twine and tape to give me an idea where the beading was going to be put.  It's a r…
