Basket full of Snowballs...

I am working on Holiday Decor for my front porch and I came across these easy snowballs on Pintrest.  All you need is a quick trip to the Dollar Store for a few cheap supplies.  These snowballs took me about 20 minutes and the effect is both rustic and vintage.


I picked up these 8 packs of Styrofoam balls for crafting and Epsom Salts each purchased for $1.25.  I am using a wire basket I already have on hand.  I poured the epsom salts into an old container and added about 1tsp of Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter.  Coat with Modge Podge and dredge through the snowy mixture!


I set the snowballs aside to dry and started working on the tags.  I just got my hands on the new Canadian Paper Manufacture Holiday Style paper from Wild Whispers.  This set has a really rustic style and it's double sided... BONUS!  I cut the Tags and Tab die with mat board and paper.  Then I did a couple mini skates and paper with glittery skate edges.  Assemble and embellish.


Look how many there are!


I used the Stitched Oval cut with chalkboard paper so I could write my 5 cents ;)  


I tucked the tiny Enchanted Dove at the top of the tag packing the Holiday Mini Greens holy.


I used a piece of Holiday Style Card Pack for the skates.  The smaller text and images are perfect.


I love the Hanging Sign and more chalkboard paper.


The tag is clipped on with a hinge clip.


These snowballs look real.


This basket full of snowballs will be a perfect holiday decor addition to my festive porch!


Decorating doesn't have to cost a fortune.  Most of these things I already had on hand... so it cost me about $5.  Look at your stash and see what you can create.

Jarred Florals

How's your summer so far?  Me... I am just returning from a long vacation from down south.  So I am probably folding a lot of laundry. TheXyronTeam andACCOare playing all week with staplers and cutters.  Which means anything goes creatively!  I am so thrilled to use their Guillotine Trimmer LiteI don't own one so this is super exciting... 10 papers at one time!  
(all supplies used is linked for your convenience)

Time to crack into my new Flower Jar stamps and Framelits dies and a whole lot of colouring.
Once the colouring was done I added a little touch of dimension to these teeny wildflowers with a stylus and water.  It's my first cut with the Guillotine Trimmer Lite, dang thats sharp.  Even for small cuts.
I ran the stitched circle cut through the Creative Station then used the Create a Sticker for the adorable teeny wildflowers.
The Pondering Words "WONDERFUL" cut is perfectly cut with the Guillotine Trimmer for this 3/4" cut.  I popped it on the edges …

Wanderlust

I am pretty sure I have the "Wanderlust" bug!  I wanted to try something different so I decided to try some texture paste on the cover.  The matboard is tough enough to handle some texture paste.  I used chalk paint and texture paste to decorate my cover instead of paper.


Cut the superstock paper to fir the journal, 8x8 scoring in the centre to create a page.  I used oxides and stenciling to create a dynamic page.
Die cutting on pattern paper for some great elements.  Love the brush and foam for those small dies Especially the Gearhead die!  
See, all those little bits popped right out!  More inking and layering for these pages.  Making life easier with the Creative Station and these smaller detailed dies.
Lets make some trophy's!  I coated them with hammered metal embossing powder and coloured some distress crayons to distress it.
I cut and inked the Heart and Soul flower with more pattern paper.
I love the Ornate Frame #2creating some great vintage elements for this …

Fall Colours

OK, I know, I know we are only half way through summer and already there are fall leaves on my blog!  I really couldn't help myself.  I mean... you know me! This week Xyron and Newton's Nook are teaming up for some... AWESOMENESS!  Of course I had to go for these gorgeous leafy stamps.  Can you imagine these embossed or in an art journal!  So many creative ways to make stuff.

I gathered some goodies including my Tag and Tie to make a Kraft Tag for the sentiment. A little bit of stamping and inking goes a long way.  

I stamped the wee pumpkin from the Falling for You set (linked below) and coloured with Stabilo Woody 3 in 1 pencils.  These are great for watercoloring too.  Yep, it happens from time to time... I fussy cut the pumpkins out.

I stamped the Beautiful Leaves stamp (linked below) with a blend of Oxide Inks.  Stamping again on inky scrap paper with large maple leaf... yep, more fussy cutting.  Oi...

More stamping on the background and then run through the Creative Sta…
