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.

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!

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.
