Tim Holtz Exclusive Stamptember Release

It's here...
It's Stamptember for Simon Says Stamps and Tim Holtz have an Exclusive Release for you!  How fun are these stamps each with it's own sentiment.  If you know my blog you know I love my blueprints.  So this set is perfect.

Check it out!!  Pick your jaw up off the ground...

I was going to make something different but I saw this mini burlap panels and thought they might be perfect fit.

Sooo every seashell needs a Seahorse...right?

These gadget gears inked with ground espresso distress paints then I sprinkled some vintage photo distress embossing powder.  Looks so grungy and rusty.

I stamped and watercolored each image using the new ground espresso accenting with weathered wood, antique linen and tea dye distress markers.

EEK...I love this one.  The mini antlers to the new Fall Foliage Thinlits that arrived just yesterday.  Mail box straight to my Vagabond...varoom.

Some Idea-Ology...

Attached with linen ribbon.

I love the masculine feel I ended up making.

I think my husband has already claimed this for his office!

Check out more projects using this awesome new Tim Holtz Exclusive stamp set.

Thanks for popping in  and checking out how I created with this new stamp set!  Cannot wait to make some more.

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 …

Last Minute Christmas Card

We are always looking for last minute card ideas.  Here is a great quick card to whip up in no time.  A little paper, embossing powder and of course the 3" disposable sticker maker.  How time flies, can you believe this is my last post for 2017 forXyron.  

With my dies I cut a bunch of paper including super stock for the ornaments.  Create a resist with clear embossing powder for inking.

Here's my favourite part... running my dies through the Xyron 3" Disposable Sticker Maker.  I just feed it like it's hungry.
Run a line of adhesive on the back of the paper for the twine to attach too and again on the chip quotes.  I stamped the sentiment from my stamp set Woodland Winter.

Check out this simple quick card.

Look how pretty my stamp looks here.

Thanks for stopping by and wishing you all a wonderful holiday.  

Thank You Xyron

Well what a fun year it has been.  Xyron took me on with no experience and never even owning one.  Thank you to my awesome team and a awesome product to design with.  
The team is designing with their favourite Xyron product and I picked the Sticker Maker.  This handy little machine is perfect for my love of sentiments and letters.  A perfect pairing with my Sizzix Dies.

To create the backgrounds I need a thick cardstock that can take this amount of paint... Super Stock!  I created a colourful base for these wee Alphanumeric Thin letters.  

I lined the little letters up and ran them through my Vagabond.

Each little letters slides into the sticker maker easily.  I add them all one after another pull.  So quick and easy!  

I created the background for the card much the same way as the letters.  Creating a paper ribbon while I was at it.

With the ribbon and bow created I popped the ribbon part through the sticker maker.

Peel and stick.  It's hard to pick one Xyron product.  I often …
