Break out the Jingles... Christmas crafting is happening!

There's a new team up this week between Xyron and Waffle Flower and all week the team is sharing some awesome inspirational projects.  Check out this step by step using my pages from a 115 year old book and my Mega Runner pulling it all together.

I gathered some Tidings paper and Super Stock for the base of my card.  I then grabbed my very old pages for the tattered poinsettia and background with a little white gesso to take the inking.

The tattered poinsettia is spray stained and added a little matching ink to punch it up.  The Stamp Platform is perfect for stamping this 115 year old paper.  No mistakes when it comes to working with paper this old.

OK, maybe one mistake!  Paper this old is fragile and it stuck to the stamps.  But that's OK that's what glue and adhesive is for.  I mounted the paper to a piece of super stock with the mega runner.  Then applied a little glue n' seal for the ripped off bit.  Like it never happened!  

Back to colouring with my Scribble Sticks and the sticker Maker comes in handle for my holiday words and mini tag I stamped! 

One of my favourite dies is the tattered poinsettia.  I love how well it goes with the Waffle Flower Poinsettia Stamp Set.  A perfect pairing! 

It has a vintage feel!

Thank you checking out my little Waffle Flower tutorial.  Don't miss out on all the creative fun this week!  Get your holiday crafts in gear!

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 …

Simply Spring

Just a simple card with stuff I had laying around or partially started.  What could be more easy than that.  Sometimes you just have to dig through your stuff.  Click the links below to see what I used.

You are the best... using Ranger's new Letter It stamps.

A little mixed media die cutting.

I went all inky then added a coat of clear rock candy distress glitter.  If only the shimmer came through.

Love these flowers.

A grungy little edge.

This is a simple little card with a couple of easy techniques.  We have so much snow so I guess I just need some cheery spring.

Watercoloring with Butterflies & Oxides

The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team has been sharing tutorials all month long.  I do have a video tutorial for this card but it won't be read for awhile.  Hey, it happens.  I at least have a couple of photo's until the whole video is posted on Creative Scrapbooker Magazines website.

Loving the new Oxide inks especially as we approach those soft easter pallets.

A little stamping.

I know it's not a box or cool journal.  One of my favourite dies is the Birds & Butterflies thinlit.  Yep, there are pretty little dies perfect for card making too.

I love the intricate butterfly to layer over.

A simple card and no it's not even a journal.

I will share the video when it's all done and posted.  I will even embed it in the post too.
Onto next month...
