Wish

 I have been patiently waiting for the Layered Snowflake to arrive so I could make this months tag. I felt like it was taking forever! I knew I wasn't going to use my layered leaf.  Thanksgiving is over...Halloween is over and there is snow on the ground! That calls for a snowflake!
 
I love this big textured snowflake for November's tag.  I love the torn cardboard!  It feels grungy!
 
 
I did all the inking and embossing for the layered snowflake.  I have everything except the transfer foil *sad face* so I used brushed pewter distress paint dabbing through the speckled stencil. 

 
I cut this round thinlit label the used my Alphanumeric I just got to say WISH.  Since it wouldn't fit across the tag I had fun and placed the letters like you see.  I actually prefer it like this.
 
*the letters became magnetized and were dancing around my platform...weird*

 
Along the bottom of my tag I cut and distress glittered clear rock candy the snow flurries cut.  Then attached with some tinsel twine.  I attached a snowflake charm with a little added picket fence distress paint.

 
 I love all the blues and texture.

 
I attached a Christmas Word Band along the top with my tiny attacher and tinsel twine. 

 
There, short and sweet...like me. 
 
Thanks for checking out my 12 Tags of 2014 November Tag.
 
Be sure to play along.  You don't have to have all the same goodies...you just have to be inspired.

  5. Well, you sure were inspired! This is gorgeous, Nicole! A great spin on Tim's tag! this is just perfect, and I love all the snowy details! Love! Great idea to use the stencil with brushed pewter. Sure beats spilling the entire bottle all over your work table like I did! I had silver hands for a week!

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…

Halloween Decor- Pennies a project

SIX PROJECTS ON A DIME!

Are you looking for some Halloween Decor ideas?  I have a few for you.  These are projects I have been working on for the past couple of weeks.  BANNERS
I made Boo and Beware for my 2 corner windows.  These are cut from Birthday Bash, using Recollections Halloween paper and Stampin Up Halloween Paper.
I made this Tim Holtz Banner, "Trick or Treat".  Hangs over my spooky dining room.  Black sheets are there for the holidays.
Cut from Birthday Bash and the frames/ font are a Sophisticated cut.  I added beads from Walmart and skulls are a $1 store necklace cut up.
This BIG Banner is "Happy Halloween"
The charms are Walmart and the tulle is from an old Halloween costume.  This glitter spiders are a $1 store find.

Happy Halloween!
Candles
Cheap-o-la...You can make this on a budget...promise!  I picked these candelabras up from Michaels for $12 at 50% off.  I bought them on a day they there was an additional 25% off so in the end they were less than…

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…
