Burlap Wishes

I actually built this a couple weeks ago.   It's been hanging waiting to be posted.  The wreath was actually pretty fast.  I found this beautiful ribbon and decided it would be great on my grape vine wreath that's been in my craft room since April. 
 
I love the non-traditional colours.  This wreath was fast to build and it all started with a piece of burlap!
 

I picked up these white jingles at the $1 Store and just love them.  I tied a bow of the ribbon then another bow with scrap burlap.


It's great to have ready made cuts.  I had some stacked snowflakes already cut...just add distress paint!


I have some scrap burlap in a far and really wanted to use it.  Then I decided Eileen Hull's Blocks/ Cubes would be perfect.  Quick and easy to adhere!


I cut my sleigh ride and decked it out in antique linen distress glitter!  Shiny!  I layered the retro presents with some scrap ribbon.


I love the rustic look of burlap and the tied bow is a great pop of colour!


Now the door to my laundry room is all festive...in less than an hour!


I wanted to wish you all a Happy Holiday! 

Thank you so much for inspiring me to keep crafting every day.  Keep an eye on my blog.  I have a lot of projects waiting to post including my December Tag (just squeaked that one) upcoming CHA projects and exciting guest posts.

Merry Christmas Stalkers...MWAHHHH!

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 …

Wildflowers

I may live in a snow globe but I can dream of Wildflowers!  
Just dusting off the cobwebs on my blog.  I try to take a creative break or slowdown during Jan/ Feb.  However, I have been creating still!  So, I did just get Sizzix shipment with some new goodies including the new Wildflowers 2!

I have all the floral dies but the wildflowers are my thing!  I love them.  I started cutting the Wildflowers,Wildflowers 2 and the new Small Tattered Florals.  All the flowers are inked with Magenta Nuance Pigment Powders.

The Small Tattered Florals are so teeny!  I just found a set of Stylus Tools... it came in a 3 pack and I wasn't sure if I need 3 but YA I do!  Spray and roll!
Look how the smallest floral rolls with the smallest stylus tool.  SCORE!  Embossing time.

I also got the new Flourish Texture Fadeand it is awesome. For inking I used Eileen Hull Colorbox Color Blends.  Creating strips of color with the built in sponge and blending with my blending pen.

This Watering Can is so adora…
