Wrapping up Christmas

 
Scrappy Moms Stamps has 2 new stamp sets releasing TODAY, Made with Love and Top That!  You know when you make something for someone and think...I wish I had one of those "Created Just for You" stamps...well now there's a WHOLE SET of them.  I used both new sets on my cute Holiday gift.
 
I've been baking away and wanted to spruce up my gift giving!  For these cute bags I used a combination of the "Top That" stamps. 
 
Isn't this adorable!  The die cut is Top Note and the stickers are left over from those $2 Michael's grab bags last winter.

 
Colouring with my markers, I used the Snowman Soup stamps and the Road Trip Survival Kit stamps.

 
This is supposed to be Scarecrow Crunch, but it's Christmas so now it gets to be Snowman Crunch! 
 
 
OK... I want someone to give me these.  The $1 Store clear bags really show off my homemade Butter Tarts, Cranberry Shortbread, Saltine Toffee Bark and Soft Ginger Cookies!

 
My GF before she moved left me crafty some stuff.  She left me these cute take-out boxes.  Perfect to package up these treats!

 
On the top I stamped from the Made with Love set, "Homemade for the Holidays" and embossed!

 
These are an office party Secret Santa gift.  Upon opening each box not only is there a Nummy Treat...they are all decorated with their toppers.
 
Thanks for popping in to see:)

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 …

Art Journaling with Baked Texture

I recently got a Dylusions Journal to play and experiment with.  I am learning to play with Dylusions paints and at this point I'm I am loving it.  
Check out my second pages where I throw in the new Seth ApterBaked Texture embossing powders.

See... yummy right!
I stamped my stamps Fallen Blossom and Upstream stamps and embossed with clear embossing powder.  Then add the paint. Blend the colours to create an underwater look then in comes the yummy, cake batter smelling Dirty Sand embossing powder. Add some black marble paint on the edges and then repeat the same on the top with Deep Sea ep.  To create a wispy effect I gently used a paint brush to brush off some powder. Heat and yum!  Load up the bubbles stencil with some fresh lime paint with a sponge. Spray and layer onto the pages.  Trying paint on stamps too and hey it works! Stamp, add some Big Talk stickers, a little smudging and you're creating layers to a page.  BAM!  I cut the garden greens, added more paint and coate…

Mixed Media Canvas w/ Baked Texture

What's new?  Well I am stretching my mixed media skills or lack thereof so playing with paints the Baked Texture embossing powders on canvas is really new to me.  Keep in mind I am playing and learning as I go.

There is a lot of laying and overlapping of powders.

Even a little stamping and embossing.

Quotes get inked and embossed too.

Even theGear Corners from Southern Ridge are layered.

The canvas background is dylusions paints, stamping and a little fun making rings with various lids and an eraser.

Grungy too.

I am digging this new creative direction I am exploring.  Just having fun and sharing as I go... good or not it's all about experimenting.
