3D Pocket Watch

Lately my posts have been for my DT's (which I love) but I wanted to just play today.  I'm a wee bit under the weather with a cold.  So, things are a little slow going.  Since I'm part of the Eileen Hull Inspiration Team I received the "Make it 3D" die.  This die can make any of your big dies 3D!  So, I wanted to try.
 
3D Pocket Watch
 
 
I started by cutting these love birds from the All Occasions cards and circle movers and shapers.
 
 
I have been wanting to get the Pocket Watch die forever.  I got it as part of my DT goodies from The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  I popped the circle inside the pocket watch to make the edge thicker.

 
Here's the Make it 3D die.

 
These are the cuts it makes depending on your project.
 
 
I used this one x2.  This will make it's way around the pocket watch.

 
While I was away these yummy Deco Art Chalky Finish Paints arrived.  I used them for the pocket watch.

 
I loaded the pocket watch up with tattered pinecone roses, butterflies and ribbon!
 
 
I cut the movers and shapers ticket then stamped from the Big Top set.  I then added some rock candy distress glitter.  Can you see it... (Toe- Idea-Ology Butterfly)
 
 
I coloured the couple with some distress markers.

 
Garden greens and butterflies are inked with the Deco Art Chalky paints then coated in rock candy distress glitter.

 
I used distress spray satins for the ribbon then added a little gumdrop.
(Tac & Toe)
 
 
Here you can see the Make it 3D.

 
Thanks for stopping by!  Happy Friday the 13th and wishing you all a Happy Valentines Day tomorrow!
 
For this sweet couple I'll be playing along with these challenges...
 
I am just squeaking in for the Compendium of Curiosities 3 Challenge.  This round has Inspiration Emporium as the hosting Giveaway!  Not to mention Tim and Mario.

  2. Hi Nicole. Sorry to read that you are under the weather. Hope that you are feeling better soon. Your pocket watch clock is darling. What a neat way to give it more dimension. I am curious on your clock how you used Tim's Rock Candy Glitter technique as shown on page 55 of his book. I see the glitter on the butterflies and they are darling but the technique is different from that. Anyway, I wanted to write to tell you that the clock is so cute...very creative. <3 Candy

    1. I just learned about it myself Juliz! I am wondering how I missed out too. This makes all my Big Dies way more versatile! My GF mentioned she wants to use it for the Picture Wheel! How awesome!

  7. Hi, welcome back! I hope you feel better soon. I love your colors here - some of that Bermuda influence going on I think :-) Your flowers are so beautiful - I've cruised through your archived posts, and don't see a flower category. May have missed it with a short perusal, but if you do not have one, please consider at some point a flower tutorial! Especially with this die (and now the jumbo). And if you do have one, let me know :-)!! I've seen Tim and others - but it still is not working for me. Your step outs are so clear - so pretty please? :-) Great make, and could never tell you are under the weather! xx Lynn

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…
