Rustic Easter

Hoppy Easter to you!  Easter is just around the corner and I made a rustic little framed bunny card for Xyron.  How can you not love these mossy little bunnies!  The Xyron Create a Sticker works wonders for attaching the moss.


The Ornate Frame 2 die is the perfect frame for this adorable bunny.  Applying the Emboss It dauber makes for fast application.  Sprinkle with Oil Rubbed Bronze embossing powder then rub the edges clean for a rustic worn look.


Exposing the edges allows to some inking with Brushed Corduroy.  The Create a Sticker is the perfect size for those smaller die cuts to apply adhesive effortlessly and without the sticky mess for applying the moss.


I love having moss in my stash.  Push the moss into place and trim off the moss around the bunny.  The frame is bigger so I used the Creative Station with the 5" cartridge refill running it through face up.  Rub the frame to be sure to get even stickiness!


I have the little adhesive remover to take some of the adhesive out of the small spots.  Layer up the Tidings paper and Scrapbook Adhesive 3D Foam Squares to pop up that bunny.


EEK... so mossy pretty!


The edges of the frame all inked and worn.


I have this wee set of stamps to stamp out my sentiment.  Freestyle so it's all crooked and off set.


Love the woodgrain paper in the back.


A small Wildflowers 2 die cut at the bottom keeping the card rustic and simple.


Can you see how easy using the Xyron machines with the Sizzix dies make it all so easy!  It is such a dream to make it all easier.

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…

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…
