Noel Wishes

Is it really the last Tag of 2014!
 
I have had these pieces cut and ready sitting on my desk since the first week of December.  Even the Prancing Deer was cut.  But I decided in the end to use the Lantern die.  I just love it wrapped in Holiday Greens!  I actually finished it last week but with the holidays things get delayed.
 
I used the Alphanumeric Thinlits for the Noel.

 
I love the "wishes".

 
I used the enamel metal technique for the lantern.  Then crackled around the candle light.  I love the wax paper tip for the thinlits and have been using it for weeks.  I left the wax paper on the holly cut for fun.

 
I used a tattered pinecone and red jingles for the top of the lantern.
 
 
A big messy bow in green with a snowflake dangling.
 
 
I don't have the frosted sheets used by Tim :(  So I improvised with the frosted adhesive backed sheet over acetate.  I did emboss but you can see it was well.

 
I skipped the sewing along the tag.  I'm a terrible sewer and so it's best we all don't have to witness that. 
 
 
 
I have been asked to design some samples for CHA for 2015!  I'll give you a hint...I've used Sizzix dies.  I am HOPING it will all make it in time.  Shipping is slower this time of year especially leaving Canada to the US.  I busted my butt to get 5 projects built.  I'll be showing those off during CHA here on my blog.  I soooo wish I could have been at CHA in person.  But then...don't we all!
 
Thank you for stopping by and checking out my take on this December Tag!  I love all the fun techniques this past year!  Thank you for all your support over the year.

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.

Gifts made Easy

I love this little box that perfectly stores gift cards.  Eileen Hull does weekly Facebook Live videos and she just happened to make one of these! 

EEK... just loving the simplicity of this and I was totally inspired to make one... or a few myself.



It all starts with the Scallop Flap & Flower Box die and some matboard.  I cut some pattern paper and ran it through the Creative Station to make it all easier.

I used the new Ranger Letter It stamp Cheers from the Birthday Stamp set.  Like I said I stamped a few onto a Stitched Oval cut.

I picked up some velcro strips so I could cut the pieces I needed to size.  This way the scalloped flap stays in place.  

CHEERS...

You could add paper on the inside too if you wanted.
