A new LO...Dashing all the way.

I was trying out my new Point and Shoot at Christmas with the High burst setting and go DD running around. The Reindeer is from the Silhouette store. I did the title myself in Studio. The little squares in amongst the pictures are made with Basic Grey paper and Studio G stamps...they are tags that I made a few years back and I just cut them down and backed them with CS. There is Stickles, bakers twine, a jingle bell and also some fabulous Zva Bling included.The "Joy" is an adhesive Chipboard sticker I got for cards years back. TFL!
The LO uses a Scrapbook Generation sketch you can find on the Sketch support site

Tim Tag #4 I didn't have that adorable snowman that Tim I am just crazy enough to draw and handcut it...including the 25...not once...BUT TWICE!! On the first one I didn't read instructions well and I used my picket fence stain and it was blue! so I recut it LOL! I added two snowflakes to bring the pink in and did a pink button (which is what brought the pink in) and the pink snowflake and a sheer ribbon since I didn't have silver. Did a half cut with my Spellbinders snowflakes since I didn't have Tim's die either. I did have the feather thanks to a pigeon LOL I spotted it after Tim's post ...past it on the ground and ran back and picked it up! LOL

Tim Tag Day 3

I didn't have (once again) the stamps that Tim had so I did snowflakes with a snowflake embossed BG. Since mine wasn't as bold as Tim's So I added a Large sentiment and more greenery. :D

Tim Tag Day 2

I wracked up my shoulder somehow and had to take a couple days to rest it and heal.
Here's my Tim tag for Day #2- I didn't have the reindeer Die but I did have some of Tim's pre-cut grunge so I took that-flipped it over and I traced it on the back of a blank piece of grunge added the natural canvas to the front of the grunge and fussy cut that reindeer out. Since I didn't have Tim's pretty star I did a star and mini red bell. Didn't have the Seasonal Kraft papers so I took a piece of his Regular Kraft Resist stack and cut out the one with the grid, embossed the paper and stamped my own branches and then used the picked fence stain and carried on from there. Didn't have the border die so I just used some old border stickers and inked that and then added the brads. I used Peeled paint stain (loved the color on the vintage bias tape) instead of burlap I used a green ribbon thing I had) Since I didn't have the Christmas Muse tokens I used a regular one. Lots of substitutions on this one! but I got 'er done! Now to play catch up...I have a lot of catching up to do on a lot of projects...not the least of which is getting a cover on my December Daily!

Tim's 12 Tags of Christmas!!

It's the most wonderful time of the year!! I just love to start the season with Tim! It wouldn't be the same without him!! so I set out to working on my tag early this morning Here's what I came up with for my 1st tag. I had no supplies he had except for the Festive Greenery die, inks and stickles. I used a blue on blue Coredinations paper a Cuttlebug snowflake embossing folder, hand cut the tattered inspired banner and and used some pine cones you get for Christmas presents.
I used a Kerri Bradford file for the word PEACE...I also did a JOY so it was a toss up which one I would use and peace won!! I had did the beaded part. I ALWAYS have a blast making these and thinking out of the box with the supplies I have on hand. I love this tag!!
How bout a little close-up to start?

and now the whole deal

Okay...after looking at this post I decided I didn't like the blank spot down at the bottom and revised the tag and added the JOY afterall (maybe that's the real reason for two! Maybe I knew I would need that one too! So here's the picture of the final tag (I think! LOL)

Scrapping my Stash!

I am trying to scrap with what I have's some stuff so I don't get behind!
One ....A big ole pile of cards I did here's a LO it's a Scrapbook Generation 1 pager!There's a PTI Build a bloom flower a Dienamics rolled rose an MM's metal embellie A K&Co. sticker-the title is one I printed up inspired by L&F and the papers are all Lost and found.

And now a Halloween LO full of Tim's Seasonal Distress inks from Fall and Kerri Bradford's cutting files. It's a scrapbook Generation 2 page LO. The Title is from when I was cutting out one of the Background panels it wouldn't cut and wouldn't cut so I salvaged this bit and used it for the Title along with some of the numbers from Tim! I even used ribbon a dear friend used to wrap a prezzie for me and some OLD disney CB pieces.

A couple of LOs I have done recently.

These are from last Christmas Eve. This first one is some Lost and found, Sorry it's not square on but the paper warped slightly because I used a star as a template and sprayed the paper and then sprayed the left side of the LO as well-nothing a page protector and being in a full album won't fix! It's all various Lost and found papers by MME. The mist was Perfect Pearls mist in bronze by Ranger and it's a Scrapbook Generation sketch :) The title is from the Silhouette store. and leads into the journaling which reads
"And all through the place, you ran and you jumped, a big smile on your face. The presents were gathered all under the tree- all but one special one- for all to see.
Then what to your wondrous eyes should appear but a Marvelous handmade sleigh did appear!!
You opened your presents up one by one, you sat in the sleigh 'til the last of them done. You loved all the presents and all the shiny wrap they came in...but the hit of the night was the one from Uncle Finn."
Sorry for the glare BTW it's on a transparency.

This next LO is also Lost and found and Also a Scrapbook Generation LO.
I figured since we were with family on Christmas eve we could get a decent photo of the three of us together but DD was wiggling trying to get loose (probably to chase the dogs about) or looking the other way or moving so the pic came out blurry. Ah well...we tried! I used a Tim Holtz rosette, MME papers and embellies, and Ali Edward's Technique Tuesday stamps. The negatives are actually stamped on transparencies.

Tonight's post brought to you by Sesame Street LOL

This is a LO of my DD doing her typical daytime activity at this age. In the exersaucer spinning about, in the jumper, and watching her all time fave at the time...Elmo on Sesame Street. There is MME Lost and found and a little bit of Bo Bunny dot CS. I used a Tim Stamp to make a PP out of my title after it was cut, Everything was inked or stamped with TH Distress ink in Worn Lipstick and there is a little Recollections bling. TFL! :)

A quick LO from me!

This one was easy uses a scrap of MME Lost and found I had previously cut into :) I was so inspired by the new MME Lost and found 2 that I created my own embellie...used a Tim holtz Styled label I cut down to suit, a Laundry Line stamp. Other things on this LO are Tim Holtz distress inks (Surprise! surprise! LOL) some K&Co. CB butterflies, and some Crafts Pearls. The Layout is loosely based On a Scrapbook Generation sketch (another big surprise eh?) However I didn't do the placement at all accurately I placed it to fit my Lost and found paper and the elements on the paper I also left off elements from the sketch as well.

A LO with Inspiration showcase techniques!

I got this great flash of "Inspiration" while I was doing the Inspiration Showcase class with Jennifer McGuire. I had this idea for doing up this filmstrip in a special way and when I took the class it was like a bolt of lightening that this was what I would do with it! (I actually got hit by a couple of bolts while in the class!!)
I am putting this in the gallery under finishing touches because it was a bunch of finishing touches that took me from being happy about the LO to THRILLED!
Techniques from the first row of hearts are also included.
This design is all me :D Supplies include MME- Lost and found, Tim Holtz &TH distress inks, Versamark Stickles, spellbinders
Stamps by Technique Tuesday (Ali Edwards), Studio G,7 Gypsies.
Title by Kerri Bradford.

All my hearts in my rows :)

Well here is all the hearts for my canvas complete! I still haven't adhered them yet and I will probably add Glossy Accents to the word Create. :) but I had to share! it looks so PURDY all together IRL...all shimmery and lovely! too bad that doesn't show on the computer!

Another day and a card. :)

This card features stamping on acetate...Even though I refilled my White staz on it still came out sketchy looking, but I don't mind Shabby Chic ;)
It also features a rosette and another new technique for the last row on my canvas- Crisp stamping on canvas...FAB technique!
The teal CS is just so you can see the stamping.

Sunday, September 18, 2011

Another row and a tag from the last row.

First the tag using techniques from the last row. You wouldn't think there is much you could do different with a rosette now would you? Well Jennifer McGuire has a few tricks up her sleeve (she has a trick for everything it seems!) for a new row. This row uses different papers and things different from inks. Such fun!!

More projects from Inspiration Showcase!

I hope this works...having all these projects in one post. :) UGH>...I did rotate the pics but it isn't showing up that way...sorry!
First I have and embossed project...I love these colors (mustard seed, spiced marmalade and Barn door) in this tag!Tim's Distress inks and the Rosette die too.

Next up I have another large tag in which I used the rosettes die of Tim's and inks. The rub on is Making Memories. I just noticed I forgot a couple finishing touches so I'm going back to fix that! (LOL everything looks better with ink!)

These two 3X3 notecards are using a Background technique. I have used the Worn lipstick and scattered straw Distress stains, Worn lipstick Distress ink, some perfect pearls...the flowers are made by me :)

Thanks for Looking! :) and have a fab rest of the weekend!

Celebrating You being two!

A really big job...doing up DD's birthday pics. There were so many photos alot of them from my SIL that were blurry and had a color cast to them that I had to remove but there were alot of shots that I didn't catch as I tend to live in the moment enjoying it. So here is the first double LO (yes there is more to come) I just got the MME Lost and found 1 collection...since it's my favorite collection ever -such a special event deserved fabulous paper and embellies. I used a Scrapbook Generation sketch as a jumping off point. The Title is part Kerri Bradford (Celebrate you- from All about you) and part mine (being 2!) Tim Holtz Rosettes were used as well as one of his mini paper clips

Monday, August 15, 2011

Mind the gap!

LOL in an effort to catch up a bit chronologically and fill in some of the gaps I present you with ...It's So YOU. :) Didn't use a sketch on this's my design this time :)
A little Mariposa and some spellbinders, another Sugarplum flower, and the rose is my own design again. DCWV and Bazzill CSs. The title is another Fabulous Kerri Bradford cutting file (all about you)
I just adore that Smilin' face! :)

My cutie

This is a compilation of a bunch of pictures of DD when she was just 3 mos. old. It was a great way to get four different worth of days worth of photos scrapped that would have been a bunch of one page LOs!
Uses DCWV Old world CS stack, and K and Company Que Sera Sera stack, and Prima flowers and this time and Recollections & Prima bling. Scrapbook Generation sketch...I love! and a Kerri Bradford Title...I have used this one before but they won't be anywhere close to one another in my albums so I'm not bothered by it in the least! (love this title!)
TFL! Don't forget you can click on the pic to make it larger :)

That's my Dad

I did this LO for Nichol Magouirk's Scrapbook Stamping Class for July. Hero Art's stamp used on the grid pieces and a TH flourish is waterstamped on the tag.
Title is a Kerri Bradford cutting file and the vine is a Samantha Walker cutting file found in the Silhouette store which I added dimension to. I used Vicky Alberto's tutorial for the sugarplum Flowers for the smallest of all the flowers, the largest flowers are all my design using Spellbinder's Rose Creations and TH tattered florals dies. Gabi inspired the frame with the liquid pearls.

Monday, July 25, 2011

I do adore you.

:) My new's from Ali's new one page sketches! Hot off the press...I played along, you can find the sketch on Sketch support website.
The Title is from Kerri Bradford's cutting files. ("Say what" and "All about you")
The flowers are my designs using Donna Salazer's Rose creations dies. I haven't been able to get a good run on LOs so I'm hoping this is the start of a bunch of mojo! LOL TFL!

Thursday, July 14, 2011


LOL Finally some bits and pieces came together. I started it with Nichol Magouirk's Scrapbook Stamping class. Title was easy because I knew I would use this title from the "All about you" kit from Kerri Bradford with these pics and did this part first.
Then a Dear friend of mine, and a fellow scrapbooker- Erin, passed away recently. I was grief stricken and my mojo was gone.
I finally managed to pull it together today. The tough part was the stamping...I got the "smart" (ha!ha!) idea to stamp the sweet peas from my PTI Year of flowers set and then water color it in...which took a while...the Top stamping is from Grid Lines Two from PTI and that came together quickly.(thank goodness)I finished it off with my PTI seed packet with my Samantha Walker flower on it.
Hopefully I'll be able to get a few more going now. Wish me luck! :)

A few more PTI Garden variety seed packets and Samantha Walker Silhouette file.

Okay...don't know if I can stop making these...they are too fun! here's just a few more that I made #1,2, and four- are using a Samantha Walker's Designer cut-Gardenia- from the Silhouette store. They were designed to be flat but I can never leave well enough alone and did some of my flower technique magic on them to give them dimension...#1 is the flat version-inked only and #2 and #4 I played with. #3 is just colored with pencil crayons without Gamasol because I need a new Staz On and so the ink is distress ink and the gamasol wouldn't work with it.

Some stuff I have been up to....PTI

I got a few PTI sets for my BD at the end of May and they arrived at the end of last week. So I went about playing.
First I made some homemade Patterned papers- they aren't perfect but I will not be using the whole sheets as is and I had fun learning! This is PTI's Guide Lines Two stamp set

Next I did some Seed packets up with some flower StazOn is all messed up so I only got to do three of them, I used Gamesol and Prisma pencils...I don't have any copics YET :( LOL! I made up the little packets with my SIL Design Studio...also FUN! These use the Garden Variety and Year of Flowers mini stamp sets

Next up is some more of the seed packets in a more vitagey feel with flowers I made myself! I love making flowers!! This is using the Garden Variety stamp set.

And last is a lone button card that I made up while I desperately waited for my new sets of PTI to arrive LOL and here it is!
Also with homemade flowers. This uses the Button Boutique stamp set.

Thanks for popping in for a peek! :) Hope to have something more to share again soon!

Papertrey May Blog Hop Challenge (Part Deux!)

My second Contribution to the blog hop is from the Mat Stack 3 collection, I was actually going to add these to my nieces wedding album as journal spots but they got here a little too late (I will still send her on some of the B&W ones) -My friend Cindy stamped them off and mailed me them and they were too beautiful not to play with! I had fun playing...but I always have fun playing with PTI!

Papertrey May Blog Hop Challenge

I did a couple of items for the hop...don't know which I will linkz yet.
The First one in B&W uses the button Boutique stamps for a BG for the flowers which are felt cut from the scalloped button die (large button) and then cut and rolled to form the roses.
