Sneak Peek- Halloween Trinket Box

I am so excited about this little gem!  I think... nope, I know this is my favourite from the new Book Club Release.
Eileen Hull is bringing out a new release Book Club.  You can check out a bunch of Sneak Peeks from the whole Inspiration Team all month long.  I love this little Trinket Box and just think about all the goodies you can stuff in here.  How about a old family photo or in this case an ornament.  The team has some amazing inspiration and dynamic projects for you to see.


Tucked away inside are these adorable pumpkins and candy corn tree decked out with Halloween Papers.  

Watch for tutorials and detailed projects featuring the new Book Club release from the whole team.  I have a lot of ideas for this little box.  The perfect die for all those trinkets.
Thanks for popping by and checking out this sneak peek.

Halloween Laminated Fridge Magnets

BOO... how could this be scary!

This week the Xyron Team is showing off LAMINATE!  I have been dying to make some pumpkin magnets!  So I did!  I could have kept going with my laminating my Halloween Dies but one must exercise restraint.  After all, this is my first time making Halloween Magnets.


I cut my pumpkin and face first. I wanted to have the ability to ink the way I wanted. But I also did a couple of cuts pre inked too so I could try it out. It's all about experimenting!
I did ink up my pumpkin and add a little distressing to the edges.  Get the pieces ready... they are going through the Creative Station!

With the inked up and already laminated chipboard ready to be cut... here's where I have no idea if it will work.  To keep control I cut facing down.  After all, these are laminated and I can't go back and ink!  IT WORKED and the rest are easily trimmed.
I can't believe how freakin' adorable and easy these are.  They took no time to make and just think of wha…

Meadow Floral

As the last days of summer are dwindling away here's a little floral inspiration.

I am so excited to share a tutorial over at Ranger.  These Mini Archival Inks are bold and bright.  Tucked away in the new storage tin makes packing these around super convenient.  Pop over to Ranger for a detailed step by step.

Thinking of Fall

Fall is almost here... well it's still hot out but one can hope!
The latest copy of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine is on newstands and full of Fall Inspiration!  I love techniques and each issue I get to share my love of techniques in the Technique Tasters column.  This issue I have focused on Rangers Oxide Inks and different ways to use them.  This micro tutorial features the re-inkers and texture paste.


I was curious how the Oxide Re-Inkers would fare with texture paste.  Just add a couple of drops and combine.  Layer the stencil onto card stockand apply the inky texture paste.  Once dry layer the stencil once again and apply some ink!
I love how this turned out and rich the leaves look.

I am thinking of the falling leaves and crisp autumn air.  Fall is my favourite season... until the snow falls.



Do you have the Fall Issue yet?


Thanks for popping by.  Enjoy the seasonal inspiration and the return of Pumpkin Spiced everything.
