3 of Tim Holtz Tags doing my version.

H Ladies,

My last post of 2011.  For my birthday my son gave me a weekend at a scrapping retreat.  So my friends were there and we had a birthday party and scrapped all weekend. 
On night we ended up doing new techniques doing Tim Holtz Tags of Christmas.  We shared and pooled our Tim supplies and this is what I came up with. 

The tag pictured was Day 10 and by far it was the most beautiful.  I loved the technique of putting Santa on the pendants.

This was my favorite technique of kissing the stamp.  I love how the deer came out and it really amazes me.  This was one of the extra tags he showed and I forgot what day.

Last we did  Day 5 and that is a really cool technique that fascinated all of us.  I used a Martha Stewart punch to do the wreath and I think it came out similar to Tim's.
Hope you enjoyed my spin n the 12 Tags of Christmas.  Next year I will do more and I promise to finish the other 9 throughout the year and frame them.

Look at some of the things I made

As I told you this weekend was my birthday and my son paid for me to go to a scrap weekend with some friends.  He ha been planning it since August.  I think I will keep him.

So I thought I would share the Christmas Cards, Gift Cards and Ornament I made.

Not sure which is my favorite card.  They were all fun to do and my friends will love them.

Note to self this ornament takes a lot of time, but does look nice.  I think it took about 2 hours an would you believe I am giving it away to someone who will appreciate it.

Loved doing these ornament they were Tim Holtz techniques.

Boys Rule Scrapbook Kit -- ROCKS!!! Check it out.

Hi Everyone,

I have something to shout to you about what I am doing this month.  I am a Guest Designer for a fairly new site that has 2 kits a month that deals with BOY.  One is for the younger set and one for the older boys or Men.  The site is called:  Boys Rule Scrapbook Kits.
This month's kit is fabulous for the older boys it contains a lot of Tim Holtz and I have had so much fun playing with it and still have more I want to do.

Here is a layout I did with the kit"

I did this layout of Matthew from last month.  I used Walnut stain around the edges of the pattered paper, Tim Holtz Kraft Core that has been distressed, burlap that I frayed the edges, the sprocket gears are grunge that has been embossed by the CuttleBug and stained along with smooch and then I added some Tim Holtz trinkets on top.  Everything, I mean everything was in the kit except the Kraft Core paper.  I had fun playing with this.
Here is a close up of the Idea-ology sprocket gears and the grunge sprockets with smooch spritz

The next layout is another one of Matthew and I call it "my handyman", this is when he remodeled the kitchen.

on this one I used grunge, screw brads, CuttleBug to emboss on the grunge and spray it with smooch Olive Green, then I used the cording to put around my journaling.  The blue paper is Coredinations from my stash.   
Here is a close up of the grunge, brads and cording.

Brandi in her Tutu using Sketches in Thyme #57

 I was inspired last weekend by this sketch at Sketches in Thyme:

I knew I had taken some pictures of Brandi in her Halloween Tutu, but she was NOT liking it at all.  she just wanted to play with the range bear that squeaked.  so I had to make these pictures really fast and here is what I got.

I used Authentique's Halloween collection with orange pearls, fuzzy cut the diamonds and used Creative Imaginations Sparkly alphabet letters.

October's Card for My Sketch World

Hi everyone in Blog Land,
I created a card using a sketch from My Sketch World and it was totally out of my box, but I jumped in and took the challenge and made it into a Halloween card and I think it might be my favorite one.

Here is the sketch that Lucy did:

Remember the challenge is circles and the card, but this is what I came up with.

I added a different shape that I cut from my Stampin'Up die, orange and black construction paper, prima flowers, glittered pumpkin from stash, elastic ruffled white ribbon and I made the circle using Doodlebug Halloween Twine.  The card was a vintage Halloween Clip Art.

My GDT challenge at Citrus Tree Studio using the kit with American Crafts paper

Today is the 10th and I am so excited that I get to issue a challenge on Citrus Tree Studio today.  I hope you come play since we always have a change to win a prize for the challenges you do.

My challenge deals with COLORS.
I did not want to make it the Halloween colors unless you wanted to, so I came up with I want you to use BLACK & WHITE with a splash of any color (just one) that you would like.  So you can use Orange or any other colors you want.
In my example I used Black, White, with a splash of Goldish Yellow. 
Here is my example:

I used the pictures from Kenny & Christine going to Canada on the Ferry.  I used the papers from the kit that is sold at Citrus Tree Studio, it was so great to work with and has a lot of paper to work with along with great embellishments.  I did use a strip of black paper from my stash and some letters from  Creative Imaginations.

Hope to see you come play at Citrus.
