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 …

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

An Experiment... Hit RECORD!!!

OK, super funny maybe not funny story.  
I just got these Studio Style lights for filming.  I thought... Ohhh I'll make some pages in my Media Journal and test the lighting.  Meanwhile, you get a video out of the deal.  Ya... that would have been the best if I hit "record".  UGH...  a did this whole thing too with Scribble Sticks and Paint.

Check it out!  Ranger has Mixed Media Embossing Powders that I just got.  Ya, that was cool on video if I hot record.  There was all this stenciling and powders flowing!  Oscar nominated stuff.

Dylusion Paints and Dina Wakely has new washi tape so yep that went on too.  

See the face see, see!  That's the scribble stick awesomeness!  All this dipping in water, scribbling and blending with the Dynasty Brushes.   I was all like "ya this is cool"!  No proof it was me...

Check out the Mixed Media Embossing Powder.  All close up and everything.

Layers and layers of paint, stamping, stencils, tissue.

If only there was a video…
