For the Love of...

COFFEE!!!

Oh how I love my Timmies...coffee!  My Crafty BFF just got this Tim Hortons Logo Stamp from Viva Las Vegas Stamps.  I have to get it right back to her (because she knows I'll keep it) so I needed to make a card... ASAP! 

OH MY GOSH I love it!  #itsacanadianthing


I cut the Freshly Brewed die using mat board and some Sizzix leather paper for the sleeve and . Alphanumeric Marquee Then I was itching to use the new Mixed Media Christmas Thinlit.  


To keep that coffee vibe I attached some burlap and inked up some Splat Coffee rings.  I continued the coffee mess on the inside.


Simplify Token wrapped onto an arrow adornment.  I was tempted to add some distress crayon, but to token said to Simplify... so I did.


The cup is inked with Tim's signature red cup.  


 The Leather Paper stamped looks just like the sleeves at Timmies.


I just love the Alphanumeric Marquee "COFFEE" and a strip of burlap.


I may have made this mess this morning with my own Timmies...


I hope I don't get in trouble for using my husbands's coffee beans for this...


I am a HUGE Timmies fan so I adore this stamp!  I really wanted to visit Viva Las Vegas Stamps when I was there last year.  But the only day I had time they were closed... BOO!  

Maybe next year...

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 …

It's a Wrap

It's here... finally the Book Club 2 is releasing this month.  The Inspiration Team is sharing their Book Club 2 projects all month long to inspire you.  We are so excited to share the projects we made for Creativation.  This new release is perfect for all things journaling.
I was sent patent leather in blue.  I threaded some white elastic and through the Wrap Journal and added a wee patch of Velcro.  I decided to put the shiny side  and the more muted blue on the outside for a suede look.

I picked up this little note book at the $1 store and it's a perfect fit.  I added the 

Look... Journaling Words.


I even stamped the Wrap Journal on the outside.





Throw in a couple pages.


A few pockets...

Get ready to travel.

 Finally so excited to share this Wrap Journal I have been holding on to for 6 months.  I love this new Journal and it's a great addition to your journals.  Be sure to check out all the new accessory cuts to deck out your journaling.

Watercoloring with Butterflies & Oxides

The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team has been sharing tutorials all month long.  I do have a video tutorial for this card but it won't be read for awhile.  Hey, it happens.  I at least have a couple of photo's until the whole video is posted on Creative Scrapbooker Magazines website.


Loving the new Oxide inks especially as we approach those soft easter pallets.

A little stamping.

I know it's not a box or cool journal.  One of my favourite dies is the Birds & Butterflies thinlit.  Yep, there are pretty little dies perfect for card making too.



I love the intricate butterfly to layer over.

A simple card and no it's not even a journal.

I will share the video when it's all done and posted.  I will even embed it in the post too.
Onto next month...
