Anything Goes- You've Got Mail

Anyone ready for a new challenge with Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge?  Oh wait...did I forget to mention I'm the newest Designer for Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge.  It's true and I'm thrilled to be on such a creative team...and a little stunned. 

My first challenge with Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge is Anything Goes!  I decided to use the Correspondence paper pack as my foundation of inspiration.  I recently shared a peak at this project but I wanted to share the FULL project!  

One of my favorite releases this year is the Envelope Die!  I love this envelope and all it's potential.  


Who loves the new Tiny Tattered Florals...this crafter sure does.


I just love the Photobooth vintage photo's.  They are the perfect layer to any project.


I added the Handwritten Cherish from the Love Thinlits.  I'm still trying to find the dot for the letter "i". 


I trimmed up the mixed media honeycomb and inked it with some abandon coral, cracked pistachio and mustard seed.


I created wee cards and stamped with the Correspondence stamp.  Then I added an Idea-Ology Pen Nib.


Ohhh the Airmail Paper String...enough said.


I wrapped a small $1 Store canvas with the Correspondence Designer Tape pulling it all together. 


Be sure to share what inspires your Anything Goes with us at Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge.  One random winner will be chosen for a $50 shopping Spree with Simon Says Stamps.  


Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to take a peek.  I'm really excited to share my Monday's with you.  That, and I have nothing much else to do today.  Oh wait...nope I'm working so I can buy more crafty things so you'll keep coming back.

  11. Welcome Nicole!! Love this piece ... especially those tiny cards ... amazing. The airmail paper string just "ties" it all together. Fabulous. By the way, I hate losing things on my craft table too. There are some things that I never find!! Hope you were able to find the dot for your i :) -- Mary Elizabeth

  12. SO glad you're on the team, Nicole! I've been a long-time fan of your fabulous eclectic and creative vibe and SSS couldn't have picked a more perfect designer to join us. I really like what you did with this piece and how you mixed those creamy peachy-pinks with the pops of red, blue and white. It looks fantastic and I can't wait to see what you come up with from week to week!

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…

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…
