Fairy Dolls

I went a different way with the Heartfelt Journal die.  I made a shadow box with it.  You can create all sorts of compartments and cubby's to stuff little trinkets.  In my case I created a large opening to create my little story.


I used Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Reinker to colour y texture paste and applied to the cover of the cover with layering stencil Rose.  Tinting looks amazing on it.


I attached a strip of mat board on the outside and inside for the journal allowing for a 2" depth when done.  I cut strips of mat board to create the inside of the box.  I painted the box with black gesso including right over the pink roses.


I wasn't planning on painting the whole thing with black gesso... but paint happens!


I inked the chip quotes with Oxides and attached to the cover.


How awesome is the distress of these roses!


Some wallflower paper stash and envelope die on the inside.


The shadow box created is simple and pretty with paper dolls, grassy bits and a fence.


I cut and layered small duo butterfly wings for the pretty dolls.


The perfect set of wings to create fairy's!


I could have added so much more.  But sometimes you just need to step away and leave it.


The versatility of the die keeps on going!  A shadow box filled with fairy's, papers and secrets can be so much fun!  I have everything I used linked below.  Click and shop ;)

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 …

Last Minute Christmas Card

We are always looking for last minute card ideas.  Here is a great quick card to whip up in no time.  A little paper, embossing powder and of course the 3" disposable sticker maker.  How time flies, can you believe this is my last post for 2017 forXyron.  


With my dies I cut a bunch of paper including super stock for the ornaments.  Create a resist with clear embossing powder for inking.

Here's my favourite part... running my dies through the Xyron 3" Disposable Sticker Maker.  I just feed it like it's hungry.
Run a line of adhesive on the back of the paper for the twine to attach too and again on the chip quotes.  I stamped the sentiment from my stamp set Woodland Winter.

Check out this simple quick card.

Look how pretty my stamp looks here.



Thanks for stopping by and wishing you all a wonderful holiday.

Thank You Xyron

Well what a fun year it has been.  Xyron took me on with no experience and never even owning one.  Thank you to my awesome team and a awesome product to design with.  
The team is designing with their favourite Xyron product and I picked the Sticker Maker.  This handy little machine is perfect for my love of sentiments and letters.  A perfect pairing with my Sizzix Dies.

To create the backgrounds I need a thick cardstock that can take this amount of paint... Super Stock!  I created a colourful base for these wee Alphanumeric Thin letters.  

I lined the little letters up and ran them through my Vagabond.

Each little letters slides into the sticker maker easily.  I add them all one after another pull.  So quick and easy!  

I created the background for the card much the same way as the letters.  Creating a paper ribbon while I was at it.

With the ribbon and bow created I popped the ribbon part through the sticker maker.

Peel and stick.  It's hard to pick one Xyron product.  I often …
