Geared Up for May's Remix

I barricaded myself in my room for an hour so I could whip off May's Remix.  Hands up if you're having fun creating (and looking at)  these Remix Tags.  Me...ME...!

I went for a masculine Geared Up Remix Tag.  Father's Day is just around the corner and lets face it.  I love to create masculine anything.  


I used the Time Traveler set for my tag.  Layering with one of the Documented stamps.


Oh which stencil to choose?  I was tempted to use lots.  But I ended up with the Gears because I love it!  I cut the Tiny Tattered Florals and inked the tag after the texture paste dried.


I love how the colours turned out.  I used the leftover stain for my ribbon.  Here come the gears!


The resist from the washi is perfect.  I wasn't sure about the keys but I like.


A sticky tab thingy and this lovely sentiment Rub On. I added a scrap of stained ribbon with my tiny attacher.


I used the Tinest of Florals on the Time Travelers Lapel.  There is a teeny leaf too.  Look hard.  It's true... only one little Sizzix die used.  


The texture paste gears all inked are so yummy!  Adding the metal gears is perfectly masculine.


I added this Time Piece Pocket Watch.  Along with another tab thingy and sentiment Rub On.  I added a dollop of glossy accents.


Stamping, inks, texture paste, stenciling and hardware...


Loving the gears and Time Traveler.

  9. Oh, yeah, Nicole, you do DO masculine so well, and this is no exception! I love the use of the keys tissue tape--that being the hardest choice for this month's tag in my opinion. It looks just perfect with the guy stamp and as always, love your gears! And the one wee flower at the lapel--genius!

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…
