Another adventure with new to me paper and other fun goodies.

Xyron and "Hazelwood, a collection by 1canoe2 and American Craftsare creating this week to bring some great projects your way!  I hauled out my art journal for this Hazelwood Scrapbook paper!  I must admit, creating these pages for DT commitments really gives a fun, creative and eclectic variety of pages.  I am not a big paper person so creating this way really opens my creativity.

Pin It

ACK... there's even these awesome Hazelwood Cork Diecuts!

Half the fun pulling out my dies to go with the Hazelwood Scrapbook papers sent to me!  Cutting the envelope and pocket envelope with the paper and add some inking with Oxide.

I may have embellished the pocket envelope then realized I should have run it through my Creative Station.  Look at that... runs it through easily.  

I attached the envelope to the pocket envelope then ran both through the Creative Station.  I wanted to try see if I could use distress crayon on the Hazelwood Cork Diecuts.  So white gesso it is.

My pages was gessoed and scribbled some distress crayon for the background.  Add some stenciling to create some layering showing the text of the pages.

I cut up one of the Hazelwood Scrapbook papers I was sent to create some layering.  I tacked the cuts together then ran the lot through my Creative Station.  So new to me and exciting I can do this stuff!

Attach all the paper die cuts and cut outs.  Another new for me... running the Hazelwood Cork Diecuts through the Create a Sticker.  Came out beautifully.  Colour and stencil the cork cut out.

This cute little cloud is cork too!  I cut the mini airplane with chipboard and some more of the pattern paper then ran it them through the Create a Sticker.

I left one cork cut out so you can see how they come!

I love to layer the Hazelwood Scrapbook Pages, cork and die cuts.

The stencil cork Hello is perfectly subtle.

I added a little grunge to the paper accents with distress crayon black soot!

Definitely a challenge to use things I would not normally create with and make it my own.

My art journal is certainly coming a long and creating for my DT this way makes it a lot of fun for me creatively.  Check out this list below for supplies used and click the image for easy shopping!

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...
