Autumn's Harvest


Now that I'm getting back into my craft room and getting messy I have been wanting to make a thank you note.  We spent some time on my SIL's family farm this summer.  I wanted to send a Thank You note along with some Apple Butter I canned a few weeks ago.  This is a perfect opportunity to create for the Compendium of Curiosities 3  Challanege  #12, Distress Photo Tinting.  I have missed playing!

 I picked up the Found Relatives- Occasions cards.  Using a #10 Tag is big enough for all my new die cuts and cards.


I used my Distress Markers, spun sugar and warn lipstick for the girl and peeled paint for the boys buttons.  I also inked the baskets and fruit.


The used paint for the bow and tattered curvy banners with the #hashtag stamp set, "#thankyou"


I stamped the background, thankful silhouettes with clear emboss and then inked.  I cut this tattered leaf with packaging plastic then used alcohol inks for colour.


I love the new Sizzix Pumpkin Pieces.  The Distress Glitter is a given in rusty hinge,  I have some Autumn Gatherings cuts done so I added them to the pumpkin with some jute string I curled.


I have been dying to get the new Sizzix Layered Leaf since I love fall!  This leaf is stunning and looks so real!



I layered the leaves under the pumpkin.  I also cut a couple with Klassine.


I tucked my Thank You tag in my maple tree.  It's hard to tell the real leaves from the ones I made.  


Thanks for checking out my Autumn Harvest Thank You.  As always, thank you so much for all you're lovely comments on my last post.

  9. Just gorgeous. I love your photo and I get the sense these two have just jumped into a great pile of leaves on your tag. Delightful mix of paper medium for the leaves, too. Very cool!

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 …
