Joie de Vivre

Relax and get ready for summer!  Even Zombies need a break from groaning and eating brains.  Check out my tutorial on this fun summery Ectetera Tag.


DCWV is joining with Xyron for some awesome projects all week.  I was sent the Jioe de Vivre paper and 6X6 Brights Paper Stack full of fun bright patterns.  I grabbed some dies (linked below) and cut some of the Brights paper (linked below)

Check it out..


I prepped the zombie and cut a surf board with matching Jioe de Vivre paper.


I ran the pattern paper surf board I cut through the Create a Sticker a to adhere to the matboard surfboard.  With the zombie dry I was able to ink some green skin with Oxide ink Peeled Paint.


I die cut brights and Jioe de Vivre  to create a tropical shirt and Bermuda shorts.  I flicked some distress paint on them and used the Create a Sticker to adhere.


How adorable... mini boards with more pattern paper.  I cut the brights paper using the Tapered Fringe die for the grassy shirt, island and bottom of the tag.  I prepped the Ectetera Tag with white gesso and used distress crayons for a watery, sunset background.


I used the Rays stencil to create sun rays.  I cut out the Jioe de Vivre  (meaning- enjoyment of life) from one of the papers, attached with collage medium crazing.  I cut the twisted die with the 6X6 Brights Paper Stack in various blues paper to create waves.


More fringe for the bottom cut with Jioe de Vivre  paper.  I created this fun banner because who doesn't want to relax!  Now to prep some crazy things balloons!


Ink and cut!  I twisted some metal for the balloons using the Twist n' Style Tool.  I attached the balloons and cut some scraps to hold them in place with a circle punch.  Super easy!


Surfs Up...


I made the circle part of the tag look like a life saver!  


I love the little island oasis with grassy bits and surfboards!


A little mixed media element with the joie de vivre sentiment.


The balloons are a fun pop of colour!


OMGOSH I love his tropical shirt and surfboard!


The twisted waves, grassy fringe and Relax banner are all pulled together for a hang loose vibe!


Who's ready for a tropical vacation!  Check out the whole Xyron Team all week for more DCWV inspiration.  Get creative and just Relax!

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.
