Hanging Tags

I've been busy like most of you!  Creating like mad including these wine tags.  I was asked to make 20 of them.  I do this every year and it's always fun coming up with new designs.  This year I used my new Vintage Cabinet die!  I created 4 different designs... mostly for me!  Doing 20 of the same thing can be boring.
 
I distressed all the edges and used brushed pewter distress paint to the edges.  I added the jumbo tattered pinecone and holiday greens to this one. 
 

Each tag has a another vintage cabinet cut I stamped attached.  This is where the gift cards will attach.


The new festive gent all distress glittered in black soot.  Each vintage cabinet card has an oval peek cut which will show off the gift cards.


Loving my Mini Handwritten Holidays stamps for smaller projects.  Stamped on the Thinlits Labels is a perfect fit.  The retro presents are the perfect size!


This tag gets the sleigh ride cut layered with merriment paper and the holy leaves from the holiday lamppost.


Each tag is tied off with heavy twine to hang around the bottles.


These make a great gift!


Bonus Project

I needed to make 30 Christmas Cards and fast.  I went with an easy design and whipped of 30 in less than 2 hours. 


I used festive berries distress spray stain and holiday knit stencil to create the background for the antlers.


Sometimes you need quick cards so simply layering some paper and adding a stamps is the best way to get the job done!


Thanks for stopping by!  I hope this gives you some ideas for a quick card or gift card holder!

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…
