Creativation- Under the Sea

I have been busy the last few weeks on a few Creativation projects.  Sadly this year I am not attending but a couple things I made will be there on display.  I got to play with some new embossing powders from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies and these pretty stones from the new Quarry collection.  I went for the obvious...shaker card.

Creativation is about to begin so here's a little look at one of my projects.


I had this idea for a porthole type of window filled with the Quarry Mixed Media Gemstones (releasing Jan 21,2017) stones... almost like sea glass.


There are just a few pretty stones in this collection ;)


I cut the porthole using the Pocket Watch big die and the movers and shapers circle die.  


The Sand and Sea Horse is layered with twisted citron distress spray, Salted Navy and Fractured Ice EP.


The SEA is cut with the Alphanumeric die.  Then a little hardware never hurts with this metal anchor.


The background is Nuance Powder Dyes and the Splatter Stencil.


For a little under the sea greenery I made some cuts with the Garden Greens and Holiday Greens.


If you are at Creativation this weekend stop by Emerald Creek Craft's booth to see the new releases and projects created by there talented Design Team.  Some will even be there teaching some make n takes!

Stay Tuned for more Creativation projects I will be blogging over the coming days.

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 …

TUTORIAL; Little Drummmer Boy...or Wooden Horse

I made a Christmas Drum!  I think I love this one more than myChristmas Village!  One of my "ENABLER" crafty peeps told me about a Christmas Drum she pinned on Pinterest, click HERE to see the Pin.  I fell in love!  I started collecting the goodies a couple weeks ago and finally sat down to build it yesterday.  It only took a couple hours and it was a blast to create.  Check out this beautiful Christmas Drum. I started with a teaser post on my newInstagram account.  I inked up these TH Bottle Brush trees with re-inkers!  I started with this round hat box I found at Michaels for 50% off.  I like it because it was already a vintage paper box.  Simply Stunning!  I made a line all the way around the base of the lid.  This way I know where to stop when adding the beads.  If you don't stop you won't be able to close the lid.  Don't worry, you won't see the line.  I used some twine and tape to give me an idea where the beading was going to be put.  It's a r…
