Winter Wonderland Christmas Tag

Hello everyone and Merry Christmas!
Today, I am sharing a tag that was so much fun to make!  It's a rare event for me when I have an idea and I can keep the project in that direction (lol).   I knew I wanted the tag to look rustic and have the colours of silver, blue, and white.   I am so happy with the way the tag turned out.  My inspiration for this tag came from Frank Garcia. His Christmas tags are so pretty.  I found many versions of his tags done by other crafters; however, none in the colours I had in mind. So I was somewhat on my own with this journey.  I purchased the papers at our local craft store in Waxahachie (Crafter Scrapper).  The paper is by Bo Bunny's TIS THE SEASON collection. The sheets I used were:Tis The Season Yuletide #20501706 and Tis The Season Peace #20501702. The darker print with the large snowflakes was some paper I had in the stash.  The largest tag (base) is a pre-cut chipboard tag from Heart of Texas Studio (they come 2 in a pack).  I used 2 different Tim Holtz dies to cut the other two tags out of the patterned paper.  I added some dimension to those smaller die cut tags by cutting out some 2mm Fun Foam in the same shapes (Fun Foam purchased at JoAnn's).  I used score tape to adhere the patterned paper to he fun foam.  The silver swirls were cut using Tim Holtz's Thinlets "Scribbles & Splats" and the branches are from Tim Holtz Thinlets "Holiday Greens". The deer is a Tim Holtz Alterations Movers & Shapers-"Mini Reindeer & 25 Set". I made the bow using Tim Holtz's Alterations die "Bow-Tied".  I used a Fleur-de-Lys mini background stamp on the deer and embossed with silver/gray embossing powder.  The poinsettia was cut using Spellbinders "Layered Poinsettia" #S5-055.  The bow, the scribbles, the 25, and the poinsettia are cut out of DCWV's 12 x 12 "Glitzy" Glitter Cardstock Stack (it's the smooth glitter cardstock). I used some silver 1/2" ribbon from JoAnn's and some silver flat back adhesive backed pearls that I got from Hobby Lobby.  The little blue cluster is from Michael's holiday stems.  I made the tag by using a Spellbinder's pennant die, transparent  card stock from Michaels, Staz On Opaque, dots/spots mini back ground stamp, and a (retired) Stampin Up Greeting.  And the last thing I did was to add some silver-gray seam-binding.   I absolutely love how this tag turned out. 

Here is a close-up of the greeting.  I used the STAZ ON OPAQUE die on the transparent CS,  the dots/spots mini background stamp to make it look like it was snowing on the greeting and inked the edges to give it a frosted look.   

I plan to enter my tag in the following holiday challenges:

Christmas Gift Box

Happy Holidays!
I don't know about you guys but I have been busy with Christmas preparations.   Getting the house holiday ready and making lots of paper crafts.   Today I am sharing another cute box.  I saw this on You Tube, it was a tutorial by Donna Gray.  She calls it a Lovely As A Tree Ferrer Rocher Gift Box.  You can find the step-by-step tutorial here.  I used some Stampin Up card stock and the awesome "Lovely As A Tree" stamp set.  This stamp has been around for a very long time and it is still just as popular today! If you are interested, you can purchase this stamp set on my Stampin' UP! website by clicking on this link- Lovely As A Tree.  You can get it in rubber (aka Clear Mount- #127793, $20.00) or the traditional Wood Mount-#128655, $28.00).  To make my box I used some Always Artichoke Stampin' UP! cards stock #105119, $8.00; some gold foil paper, gold embossing powder, Versa-Mark, Spellbinders Pennants die templates, and a score board.  Well, that's it for now but I will be back really soon with more fun holiday projects.  Until next time..Au revoir !

Happy Holidays!!

Stampin' UP! Christmas Goody Box

Merry Christmas everyone!

I am so excited about the season and all the hope and promise that the Christmas season and the new year brings.  I have been making all these cute little boxes.  I now have a Master's in the Science of Paper Crafting from YouTube University!  This little box is my December post for the Eclectic Ellapu design team our (December projects).  The pink team's theme is "Anything Christmas" and the purple team's theme is "Jingle Bells" (incorporate jingle bells in your project).   For my project, I chose to make a candy box.  I used some retired Stampin' UP! (SU) 6x6 Designer Series Paper also know as DSP.  I followed another one of Sam Donald's tutorials on You Tube-Sweetie Window Box Tutorial using Stampin' Up! DSP .
The holly, pine springs were made using Martha Stewart punches, the sugared flatback embellishments are from Hobby Lobby, I used the (retired) SU large oval and scalloped oval punches, along with some Recollections (Michaels) clear card stock to make the windows. I used a small whole punch from Hobby Lobby (Paper Studios), and 1/8"white satin ribbon from JoAnn's.   I am going to remake the box using some current SU products and I will be sure to post that as well.
This was fun and pretty quick project, I hope you'll give it a try... Til' next time, Merry Christmas and an Awesome New Year!

Anything with a Bow!

Wow! where did October go!!!  
Just a real quick post to let you know about the November brag challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu and to make an announcement, be sure to read to the end!  The pink team's November challenge theme is "Anything with a Bow".  The purple team's theme is "Let Sparks Fly".  For my project, I chose to make some cute little party favor bags and boxes.  They are just cute, cute, cute with or without a bow.   To make these lovely little bags and boxes, I used some Stampin' UP! products,  like the scallop punch, 1 3/4" circle punch, some (retired) Designer Series Paper, some Old Olive grosgrain ribbon (retired), and some of the 1/8" gold with white trim ribbon (still available).  I followed the You Tube tutorial from Dannie Graves of Dannie's Designs for the for the largest bag.  For the "4 You" bag you can find the You Tube tutorial on Dawn's Stamping Thoughts and for the little wedding favor box you can find it on You Tube Sam Donald's tutorial.   I use to sell Stampin' UP! years ago.  I took a lengthy break and I've missed so much that I decided to join Team Stampin' UP! again.   I am in the process of setting up my website and getting things in place, so watch for the up coming announcements.

Well, I better stop here, my post is already a bit tardy.  I hope you will stop by the challenge blog and join in!  Til' next time

I decided to do a Hot Air Balloon!  Einat has so many great video tutorials, but the one that really got me was the Hot Air Balloon.  Her hot air balloon is a cross between vintage and Steampunk.   You can see Einat's awesome Hot Air Balloon video tutorial here.  Check out my finished project below and afterward let the Autumn breeze take you over to our October challenge at Eclectic Ellapu for more inspiring cards and projects; hope to see you there!

Gift Tags and more

Howdy folks,
    It's time for the September challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu.  The pink team's theme is anything to do with a "Gift" and the purple team's theme is "New Beginnings"...celebrate a new chapter in your life-new spouse, new baby, adoption, new job, etc.  Of course no gift is complete without a stunning tag!  Since I'm back on Tim Holtz again what better way to jazz up a tag than to use some Tim Holtz products. Tim and Ranger have some amazing products out currently.  I got a few dies, stamps, inks, and tools to add to my collection. I've been playing with some Layering Stencils, as well as some of the new and vibrant distress ink colours like "Picked Raspberry".  When I first saw this ink pad, I thought...ok that one I will not be purchasing-ever!  Ooh-wee that is a bold bright colour!  Well, I truly had to eat crow on this one. I absolutely love this colour!!!  This is just a must have ink pad and re-inker.  I also got to work with some of the Distress Paints. The Distress Sprayer- I'd been looking at it for awhile but refused to buy it because, I felt like I had enough spray bottles in my craftroom.  I really do like the Distress Sprayer and highly recommend it.  I love the way the mist-dopplets come out.  The water droplets on my tags really look distressed, vintage, and aged instead of  blobs of water. The Splatter brush-one word...AWESOME!!!  I did a little tag using the Splatter Brush, I call it my Solar Tag; you'll see why in a few.   I also did a quick tag using the Distress Sprayer that I will show.  I was on such a roll, I decided to see what kind of tutorials Tim had on his site and let me just say...I found the coolest tag!!!  I am always trying to do masculine projects but they always end up looking more girly than manly.  The tag I did even though it has butterflies, still rings dudely!!  I am sooooo pleased at how it turned out...Thanks Tim!    Well, I hope you will pop over to Eclectic Ellapu and join in the challenge, good luck!

To make the faux metal tag I used: Ten Second Studios Metal Tape Sheets (8 1/2 x 11 in), #8 Manilla Tag, Spellbinders Butterflies Two die templates, Spellbinders Damask Motifs die template, a bamboo stick from Sally's hair supplies), the bottom of a pen (to make the rivets), a few pieces of an old dictionary page, Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks-Stonewash, Ginger, and Pitch Black, a sanding block (the white rectangular block from Sally's hair supplies), a whole punch, some seam binding (black and brown), Walnut stain distress ink, and Glossy Accents...whew! (I think that's it,,,lol).    I hope you enjoy the tags and feel inspired to break out some of those Tim Holtz and Ranger products you have in your stash.

Hydrangea Jar

Hello everyone,
    Today I am posting my Eclectic Ellapu DT inspiration project for August.  The Eclectic Ellapu pink team theme is "Floral". The purple team them is "It's a Man Thing".  So you have a wide variety of creativity to explore and I can't wait to see your creations!   For my August project, I decided to decoupage a mini jar.   I chose this cute little min jar with wooden spoon I found at Hobby Lobby.   I used a couple coats of chalk paint (purchased at Michaels), I let this dry, then I baked it in the oven for a few minutes.  I used some beautiful Hydrangea napkins I got from Tuesday Morning.  I used Mod-Podge glossy to seal it and attached a Tim Holtz charm with some twine around the rim and there you have it.  A cute little multi-use jar!  You can put a small plastic liner in it and make a candy jar, great use for the little spoon, or it is great for holding paper clips and other what-nots.  Well, that's it for now.  Come back soon for more projects.  I got some goodies up my sleeve and I am excited about sharing them!  See you in the Eclectic Ellapu August challenge and good luck!

Message in a Bottle

Hello my peeps!
It's that time again.  You got it, it's time for another awesome bragging-rites challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu.  This months' themes are the "Anything Goes" and the "Beach".  I have to say, I wasn't paying attention very well last month because I did a beach card for last month's challenge for my "summer" theme...duh!!!  Well, when I realized the error of my ways, I had to come up with something really good for this month.   First, I decided that I would do something dimensional.  I'd been eyeing some things on Pinterest and YouTube for a couple weeks and I came up with an idea for altered bottle project.  Since this was my first attempt at altering a glass bottle, I thought I'd better start small (lol).  And let me just say, I'm glad I did.  It was a lot of fun creating my project but it was time consuming and it was messy!  My warning to anyone-if you are an instant gratification type crafter...step away from the altered bottles...  My goal was to make the bottle look very old, tarnished, and rustic, like it might have washed up on the "beach" from far away.   I really like how it turned out.  

Okay, now for the supplies I used...I started out with a very nice neat list of stuff that I used as I was going along, but some how it got lost in all the mess of my craftroom when I was creating the project (Some where between the workstation, craft table, and my desk).  And before you know it, I'd forgotten that I stopped writing things on the list (urrrrh)!   Sadly, this happens to me a lot (lol).  When I'm in my craftroom, my mind just goesssssssss.  I might start out in one direction and totally end up somewhere else.  I just grab stuff and see how it suits the project I'm creating at that moment and if I think it adds to where my mind is at that time, then it's in the project (lol).  With that being said, I am going to try my best to tell you what I used to create this little bottle.  

The bottle was a clear glass bottle from Hobby Lobby ($1.99).  Originally, I used to Krylon Metalic Gold spray paint and covered it but I didn't like how it turned out.  I then decided to layer on some texture by using mesh, and some metal embellishments, and some flowers.  I put on 2  coats of Gesso.  After the Gesso was dry (I let it sit overnight).  Then, I took my hot glue gun and added the lines and Xs.  I wanted the colours to be a blue-green for a patina effect. Alllll-righty! we're cooking now folks... I started out using some Tattered Angels sprays; however, they were too light and too shimmery.  I needed something that was going to give a deeper richer colour.  I used Tim Holtz distress stains peeled paint and broken china applied them with a sponge.  I used some Baroque Art Guilder's Paste (German Silver) and Perfect Paints-Shimmering Matte Acrylics (#1008 Bright Gold), then dusted the bottle with Tim Holtz Distress Ink-Vintage Photo. It took some doing and quite a bit of trial and error but I got to where I was trying go finally.   The other supplies used in my scenery are sea shells, sand, and netting from Hobby Lobby and some autumn coloured pearls from JoAnn's.  I made a little message in the bottle.  My inspiration came from one of my favorite movies called "Message in a Bottle" with Kevin Costner (that man is still fine as ever)!!  Took some patterned paper that I had in my stash, inked with Distress Inks: Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain, and Antique Linen, used Stampin' UP! En Fran├žois back ground stamp, distressed and tattered the edges and stuck down in the bottle.  Well, that's the scoop... Until next time... I hope to see in our June challenge at Eclectic Ellapu; good luck!

Of course you know there has always got to be a fleur-de-lys somewhere on my project (lol).

Design Team Announcement!

Hey you guys! I have some great news. A few months ago there was a DT call on Eclectic Ellapu; I tried out for the team and I made it! YEY-YAH! I am so excited to be a part of such a talented group of paper crafters.  I am ready to stretch my crafting imagination as far it will go.  I am also looking forward to seeing all of your creative works of art in the monthly challenges to come.  So, let's get started... For the June challenge (my 1st DT project-big smile) we have 2 themes you can choose from.  The pink team did inspiration projects themed mid-summer.  The project can be anything about the summer, not just the play "A Midsummer Night's ..."  For my DT inspiration, I chose to make a card using a cute little image I found on Google (not sure who the artist is).   My card layout inspiration came from a card done by Gabrielle Pollaco.  This card has lots of layers and distressing.  For this project I was very grateful to have my Zutter electric distresser.  My card base is A2 size; however, I had to make a little modification because of all the layers and distressing.  I added a 1/8" gusset to make sure the card would stand and close properly for mailing.  See below for a list of the supplies used to make this card.


Supplies: 110# Cardstock, BoBunny Powder Blue Dots, Basic Gray Periphery paper pack, Burlap Fabric Trading Card (Canvas Corp), Shell Trim (JoAnn Fabric), Frayed Burlap Distress Ink (Tim Holtz), retired Stampin Up stamp set-"By the Tide", ATG adhesive and Glossy Accent.  The title was added with my computer software.

Birthday Wishes Steampunk Style!

Hey everybody,
   Back with another post, this time I'm sharing one of my birthday gifts.  This year I challenged my paper-crafting BBF Lesia from Mema's Crafts, to make a b-day card for me that included (1) a derivative of my favorite colour (which is red), her challenge was to use PINK and (2) one of my favorite styles...STEAMPUNK.  She did a crazy amazing job!!! I-LOVE-IT! and I think you'll love it to.  She fussed about the challenge all through creating this card. So, I had no idea what it was going be like.  I was thrilled to def when I saw it.  The inside is really cute too, she kept the theme flowing all the way through. Wonderful job Lesi-Les!  You rocked it girly-girl, just like I knew you would.  To see more of her beautiful works, click on the link above and check out her blog.  Can you believe I was the teacher, years ago?  Now, she has totally left me in the dust with the card making.  I call her the Card Whisperer (lol).  When I want to make a fancy card, I usually consult her first.   Check out my b-day card below.   Enjoy, til' next time...


I love the hardware and the postage stamps. After she coloured the image, she popped it up on some foam, added some lovely WOC flowers, and she used several Tim Holtz dies.  The inking really gives a vintage feel.  Awesome!!!!!!!
Here is a view of the inside with my Panera gift card, thanks Lesi!

Crafting with Friends

Howdy crafty peeps,
     A really quick post for you. Today I am sharing a Tag done by one of my new crafting friends, Vanessa.   Vanessa used the Prima Doll stamp "Taylor".  She paper pieced the doll's clothing using some retired Stampin' UP! 6x6 In-Colour cardstock. I love it! Great colour flow and spacing.  Vanessa is learning her way with alcohol inks.  She is starting with Prima alcohol markers and I believe she even used a little bit of Copic marker in her project.  Way-to-go Vanessa...keep up the great work! Thanks for sharing your talents with us. 

Til' next time, hugz from moi

Faux Leather

Hey everyone,
Gosh there is just so much to do and so little time.  I forgot that I hadn't blog in awhile and of course I missed the whole month of April!  Sorry about that folks.  That doesn't mean that I haven't been crafting though...I have been plenty busy with work, crafting, and church.   I have been doing research (always doing research) for my next crafting project.  I love leather, love, love me some leather! Sooooo while I was out on the research stroll, I found this great faux leather tutorial by Einat Kessler on YouTube.  This lady is a Steampunk Dynamo!!!!  She does really awesome work.  I found myself watching her videos for almost an entire day.  She did the Faux Leather tutorial using a toilet paper roll.  Now, folks let me just say...there are some things that I really don't think are very practical and using a toilet paper, paper bags, and envelops to make mini albums are some of those things.  To me (and this is just my opinion), mini albums are of 2 types functional (practical) or non-functional (display).  With the work, time, and material that go into making the mini albums we create...I'm thinking the TP roll is not going to work in my world (by-the-way hers is gorgeous but that would be a NO for me).  I like to make albums that are functional.  In the beginning I was just making mini albums just to make them.  Now, the albums need to be functional.  The space needs to be created for that special photo, the paper needs to be positioned so that it's beauty is not covered by the photo.  The paper needs to help express the feeling or moment of the photo.  All those tags, flips, pockets, turns, folds, pull-outs, etc. need to be useable.  Tiny tags that you can barely get the word "the" on are useless (especially with our aging eyesight and non-essential tremors).  If I have to explain everything in the mini and write down instructions on how to manipulate the pages, it takes away from the beauty and aww of the mini and it's intended purpose.  But of course, if someone wants to commission me for my services and they want those properties and characteristics, then who am I to argue with their logic; at that point it certainly works for me (lol...dissertation of over).   Well, anyway; I decided to give Einat's tutorial a try and it was awesome!!!  I love how the demo turned out.  My mind was just all over the place with the possibilities of what I could use this technique for!
Below is my demo.  I tried to stick with her materials as much as possible.   The inks used:(all distress)-Vintage Photo, Spiced Marmalade, Forest Moss, and Black Soot (she didn't have Black Soot she used Staz-On), Glycerin (purchased at Wal-Mart in the pharmacy section).  I used one of my favorite embossing folders.  She didn't have exact measurements for the Glycerin to water.  I used the 2.7ozs $1.99 bottles from Hobby Lobby, that come 2 in a pack.  I think I used 1 tablespoon (which is also 1/2 oz or 15cc or 15ml) of Glycerin and the rest plain tap water.   Glycerin is different from Glycerol (if you see a "ol" at the end of a word, it usually indicates some type of alcohol group), so make sure you get the right product.  I used Liquitex Flexible Modeling paste. This will allow you to crunch, bend, and fold the TP roll after you are finished without harming your project.  It looks, feels, and acts like real leather!!  It is so cool, you are going to really enjoy this tutorial.  The other good thing was, I didn't have to go out an buy anything...everything I needed was right in my crafting studio.  If you've been crafting for awhile you probably have everything you need to give it a try.   Well, that it for now and until til next time, craft like crazy!

In the bottom left corner you can see my mistake, I laid it down before that part was dry. Since it was a demo I didn't bother to repair it.  All-in-all it was great!

Well Happy Easter Bunnies!
I finished one of my major projects, so it's break time!  I decided that I really need to practice hair coloring with my Copic Markers (currently I know one colour-brown).  I needed to start with blondes and blacks; they are the worst, so why not tackle those first? Wow...I must say, coloring black hair is a real skill ( of which I have not eeeeeeven mastered).  I did a lot research over the last couple of days and there are some excellent tutorials and very talented folks out there, kudos to all of you.  But since I'm just starting this journey with coloring hair, I needed to start some place simple.  One of my research resources was Pinterest (of course-lol).  I found the colour combinations given by Heather's Hobbie Haven helped me to get close to my goal for today ( color some hair without tearing up the paper and giving up)...mission accomplished! I coloured 5 different shades or variations of black.  I'm still not where I want to be but I think I did a pretty good job today.  I've attempted black hair many times in the past.  Sadly, all my images seem to come out looking like they are prematurely gray, so I let that challenge go for a little bit (it was working my nerves a little too much). Now, I have more time to focus on this one area and hopefully (soon) I will be good it.  I can blend colours pretty well but trying to blend colours to make black takes the patient of Job! (hold me up Holy Ghost!)  I was so happy with today's attempt, I'm just going to keep it (won't make a card or anything).  The image I used is a an old digi from Saturated Canary, called Boobie Love.  My scrappin' BFF Lesia and I are also trying to do more darker skin toned images.  I love, love, love the colour I got for her skin (it's the same as mine. I named the color "Choco-la-ta-tay".  I enlarged the image and copied several head shots on one sheet of Neenah paper to practice on.   I need to keep practicing the black.  I like what I did today but I know it can be much better.  Usually I'm a stickler for staying within the lines but this time it was all about getting the colour and shading right.  Once we have those down, we'll go back to making sure we stay in the lines.   Well here's a look-see at where I'm at so far...

Hair: N3, N5, N7, N9, and 100
Eyes: E25, E27, E29
Skin: E49, E59, E57, E55
Rose and Lips: R89, R59, R29, R27, R24

Spring Time Letters

Howdy folks!  Droppin' in to share some altered letters I did for one of my scrapping friends.
I used Graphic 45's Sweet Sentiments on the front and back (sorry I forgot to take picture of the back of the letters). I used the B-side of the print you see. The letters are stained with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Stain (wear gloves!!!). The edges are inked with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Distress inks.  Flowers are Prima frosted roses ( I just love the color), Pearls are Want-2-Scrap, the wooden embellishments are from Michael's, the little phrases were created using my Stampin' UP! label punch, chipboard, cardstock, and my computer.  I think they came out really well, I love the spring time feel.   I am going to enter my altered letters in the following challenges...

Eclectic Ellapu -(purple team) Flora and FaunaNote: EE is also having a DT call, be sure and pop over and check out the qualifications.  She will have the tryouts open until April 1st; good luck to everyone!

Spellbinders Majesty die Shaped Card

Hi everyone,
     Today I am sharing a card I did with Spellbinder's Majesty die S4-445.  I love this die, it's so, so pretty!  There are just a wonder of ideas and possibilities with this die.  I was inspired by a card I saw in the JustRite booth at the last Craft Expo I attended. The card I saw was actually a baby card.  I plan to do the baby card eventually.   I used scraps to do this first run card.   Just making sure I'm able to line up the templates correctly and making note of any adjustment needed for the real card!  The card measures about 4.25" x 4.25".  The supplies  I used are JoAnn's pink cardstock, the white cardstock is my go-to source Michael's Recollection brand, and  the patterned paper is some old scrap; can't eeeeeeeven remember the name.  The little multicolored rose is from an old Prima collection called Sherwood Rose Cottage. The 1/8 inch satin ribbon is a scrap from a previous project.  I punched the butterfly out of vellum paper (Recollection brand), and added some (Wilton) sparkling stamen and some Crystal Stickles from Ranger.  The little tag is from Spellbinder's Framed Tags One S4-392, the "Thanks"  is from JustRite  All in The Family Large Sentiments CR-04400, and the ink is Stampin UP! Blushing Bride.  Hopefully, in few days I can start on the real thing.  I plan to enter this card in the following challenges.  Thanks for stopping by, til next time...Hugz from me!
