12 Tags of 2013 February

 
 
 
Is anyone there?
 
I have been so busy these days with family, teaching and crafting!  I am committing myself to playing EVERY month with Tim's Tags!  I'm really squeaking this one in!  I have a photo tutorial on this tag, how I got there "WITHOUT" all the goodies Tim used.
 
I am just starting to collect some stains so I just picked up Barn Door.  I cheated with  Fire Brick Ink and water. 
 
 
I loaded the tag with Barn Door Stain.  I'm staining so fast the photo blurred.

 
I stamped the ink pad on my mat.  Clever...

 
Then spritz the water and drag the tag through.  Go through the same spritzing of the tag and dry.

 
See it worked.  I drag my scissors and inked black.
 
 
The stamp Tim used isn't available for me.  So I used what I have, Travel Blueprint! 

 
After stamping the water paper I used my craft punch to notch out the postage edge.  Oh that cutting sucks!

 
I cut the airplane out...cause I'm crafty like that.

 
I don't have the markers and have no plan of getting them.  Instead I use my inks and water blender pens.  I works!

 
I used my new Travel embossing folder which goes with my plane.

 
I have all these Fragment pieces so I grabbed a circle piece.  Then I followed the what Tim did!
 
 
Sticking the Chitchat stickers down and glue.

 
I don't have the labels so I used the ticket stamp I have.  Along with the same pointy finger!

 
Look, I have washi!  I kinda love this new tip!  I inked the washi with Black Soot.

 
All Done!

 
Scrappy Moms Stamps just sent me some new Twine with gold and silver in it.  YUM!

 
I skipped the hearts along the top.  Not a big fan of that.

 
What a fun Tag this was! 

 
BRING ON MARCH TIM!

  3. Your tag turned out awesome.
    So cool that you had that embossing folder that went so well with your theme.
    I agree with you on the hearts not going with your tag :)

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 …

Creating a Background with Sprays and Stamping

The snow is melting and the birds are coming home.  While there may be a couple feet of snow still on the ground a glimpse of spring can be found in this refreshing card.  A quick look how to create your own background.

Inking  the leaf border stamp and filling up the first layer is quick.  I sprayed the second layer with dylusions sprays and used a sponge to ink through the matching stencil.

Apply ink again to the large leaf border and stamp right over top of the stencil to create dimension.  I coloured the butterflies with distress markers and wow do they pop!

What a beautiful background.

I love the layered look of the stenciled leaves and stamping.

Popping up the butterflies.

Hello spring!

Sprays and inks go a long way to creating a stunning background.  Look around at what you have a create your own spring paper.


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...
