12 Tags of 2016: August Remix

Well, hello there stranger!  

You may notice some dust or cobwebs... do not be alarmed.  My blog gets very quiet in the summer.  Consider this the calm before the holiday storm.  When all the new dies and stamps start releasing and I am non stop playing!  

You may have noticed there's no tag here.  There's nothing getting by you crafty peeps;)  There are so many summer birthday's so I decided to go crazy and make my tag into a card!  I did use a tag.  I just cut the top off.


Oh man I went nuts with the dies!  There were different size cutting pads, magnet plate and a well loved Vagabond.  Great way to use up some wee scraps!



Have you tried the Sizzix Leather Paper yet?  It's perfect to layer!  Here comes the remix with the stain, brayer and inking.


I cut a tag for the front and then made an "inside" distress piece too.  Ohhhh more leather paper with some inking and spritzing.  Yep, you can add water and heat to these.  Gotta love the Notebook Edging.


INK EVERYTHING!  


OK, so sometimes my markers get a wee bit dry and don't want to Spritz.  I know... BOO!  That's OK.  Spritz a little water onto the craft sheet, scribble the nib and BAM... You're spritzing.  


It's a tag layered onto a card. 


Love the scraps, inking and spritzing.


There's that layered Handwritten Birthday using Sizzix Leather Paper.  


A mirrored star and Hello Friend!


Check it out... just the right angle and SHAZAM... instant shine.


Lookie, I used the tiny attacher.  Is it a designer feature or am I fixing a mistake?  Hmmmm... you'll never break me.


ACK... don;t forget the inside.  Handwritten Celebration stamped, distressing and a Craft Glassine leafy bit.


Make a Wish


Tim's August Tag


As always it's fun to explore your creativity and expand.  Shhh... don't tell anyone I don't own the wildflower die that was used... YET!  

OK you guys enjoy your weekend.  Thanks for not forgetting about me.

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…
