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 Journal simple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.


Inside there are pages of Memoranda paper and Idea-Ology from Scrap Shotz March Scrapbook Kit.


A mini book stuffed in a pocket too.


Nicole Wright Designs  Fallen Blossom is 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 some paper dolls ;)


Flip spots for stamping and writing.


Pages of stuffing, inking and stamping.


Thanks for stopping by and seeing my latest Eileen Hull Journal.  Check out the rest of the Inspiration Team as they share their journal projects.

Altered Halloween Advent Calendar

WOW, I think this is my biggest Halloween project yet.  It took me 5 days to complete and I could have kept adding!!!  As you know I adore Halloween and yes I have begun bringing out my Halloween goodies.  Lots of photos in this post and there is so much to see.  So lets get into the project and get you inspired for Halloween!
I was asked by Scrapbooker's Paradise (where I teach) to make one of these Kaiser Craft Shadow Boxes...with a Halloween Theme!!!  Arm twisted and mission accepted.  I am going all Tim on this one! I started by spraying all the pieces with a Hammered Finish in a gun metal grey. The set even comes with numbers;) I used My Minds Eye Happy Haunting paper to create each box with a great pattern paper background.  Then using all my Tim Holtz goodies and $1 Store finds I went to town decorating.  I used various numbers from the rub ons, metal numbers, wooden and those that came with the Shadow Box.   Be sure to dry fit before gluing!  It took me 4 hours to die cut…
