October's 12 Tags of 2012

Just squeaking this one in!
 
I haven't tackled a tag since the Spring!  Or have you noticed?  I couldn't pass up October's Tag.  I think you all might stage a mutiny if I didn't!  OK, so here is my version.  I mixed it up a bit because I wanted to try some other stuff.  I can be a rebel like that;)
 
Notice the "31"...ya you do!  But first things first...
 

I couldn't find the dry glitter, rock candy stuff Tim used but I did find this dry glitter stuff in the $1.50 bin at Michaels.  It's Studio G, Tinsel Glitter.  Works for me;) 


My tag is super duper cool.  I've been rusting everything in sight and I thought I would see if a tag rusts too.  Yes it does.  Then I ran it through my embossing folder...ummm it's a TH one and that's all I know.


My $1 Store has some AWESOME ribbon that shrivels when heated.  I have this rusty orange one I picked up.  The TH Tinsel was all out so I used some gold pipe cleaner, then ran my black paint dauber over it.  You can't tell...right?

OK lovin my "31", cut from Gothic Boo on grunge, then again with that Oven protector sheet.  I do have the stamp and ticket die that Tim used.  But I wasn't loving it and opted for this instead. 


My Tag:)  It's not as bright as Tim's but that's real rust so I'm OK with it!


Want to see some of the other stuff I've been rusting...



My Gears in my Media Room, I rusted the 3 small ones.


Well the EEK isn't rusty, but the Crown Royal Bottle beside it is:)


Oven Protector's for crafting.



Thanks again for popping it and checking out my October Tag:)

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

New Release- Stamp and Photo Storage

All month the Inspiration Team for Eileen Hull is thrilled to be showing off the her newest Book Club Collection.  Here's my little glimpse at the Stamp and Photo Storagedie.  There is nothing this decent size die can't do... or hold!  In this case Letter's to Santa.  I even combined the Trinket Box & Frame to frame out Santa.


I stamped the Woodland Winter Santa designed by yours truly onto watercolor paper and used my Scribble sticks to add a little color.
I cut a piece of clear packaging and ran it through my little Xyron Disposable Sticker Makerto create a cover for my Santa.  Perfection!

I colored up the Floral Arch and Words arch to attach to the bottom and top and attached.  I used some Distress Woodgrain Cardstock to wrap my Stamp and Photo Storage. I cut Super StockCardstock to fit inside.  Inking and stamping like crazy all tied off with some postal twine.  The Correspondence Stamp Set is perfect.


I mounted the Trinket Box & Frame to the Stamp and Storage…

Pumpkin Parts Thanksgiving w/ Xyron

While my Thanksgiving may be over it is coming soon south of the border.

Xyronis getting ready for holiday season and what better way then with the Pumpkin Parts die cut.  This easy card is layered with paper and ink to create a festive pumpkin card.  The team will be sharing their fall inspired projects all week so be sure to pop by for lots of inspiration.



The Create a Sticker is great for all the smaller pieces to layer and quickly put together.  For a quick background stamp the craft sheet with Distress Oxides, spray and drag.
I cut Thanksgiving from the Sentiment Words Thinlit and attached with the Sticker Maker.Fall Foliage has this little hay die cut that I added to the bottom of the pumpkin attached the Xyron Mega Runner.
I clipped a couple of the Twisted pieces for a little green for the top of the pumpkin.





Don't miss any of the inspiration with the rest of the Xyron Team.
