Recycling and having fun

Hi everyone!  I hope that you are having a fabulous NEW YEAR's EVE.  I spent today having fun and just playing and using some recycling.

I have been watching lots of videos on Youtube and wanting to play with new techniques and finally got around to it during the holidays.  I have put some paint on newspapers that I got from my friend Monique Van Dijk to wrap the fab canvas that I purchased from her.

I also recycled a bunch of toilet paper rolls :)  Yup it's a great use for all those little rolls!!!  And with a family of 6 I can honestly say that we go through LOTS.

You can find the video of the flip through on my Youtube channel here.  And you can purchase my little album in my etsy store here
I have used a lot of digi images that I had from Sassy Cheryl.  I went with a theme of flowers because the title of the book is Life in full bloom.  The sentiments on top of the pages are from Create with TLC.  The ones that are on the tags are stamps from Dylusions.

Here are the look of the album

And here are the tags that are inside  All the images are colored with my copics.  All the tags have been done with index or playing cards that are painted with left over paints.  The tag shape is done with Elisabeth craft dies.

 And the back of all the tags is journal space.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:

  1. Sassy studio designs - Do you recycle
  2. Lemon shortbread challenge - Anything goes
  3. Crafty gals corner challenges - anything goes
  4. Inspiration destination challenge blog - Anything goes
  5. The paper shelter - Anything goes
  6. Sweet stamps blog - anything but a card
  7. 2creative chicks - Anything goes
  8. Tuesday throwdown - anything goes
That's it for me for today!!!  I wish you all a fabulous New Year!!!

Life is good

Hello!  It's been soooo long since I just blogged for the fun of it without a DT make :)  I don't do a lot of blogging anymore I'm pretty busy on my youtube channel and on social medias.

I wanted to share with you a little video actually lol for the next make using a great image that I have won from Sherri Baldy.  I have made this for my office and I'm really happy to have it hang there because it brings color and playfulness to the space there!

if it's not playing yet it's because it's still uploading... please do come back for it!

And here's the actual canvas for your review.  This image was printed super big so that I could put it on there.  The canvas is 8 1/2 x 11 so that gives you an idea of how big this is.

Fae Owl Night - Faery Ink new image

Fae Owl Night is totally magical and is just the perfect image for a CAS card.

I really do love owls.  Probably more so because my dad loves them and whenever I can find a great image with an owl I know that I can make a little card for him just to say hello and that I'm thinking of him.  It's my turn to host the blog at Faery Ink and here's the make!
But I also know that lots of people love owls and Faeries proably because they are mysterious and so very wise so this new image Fae owl night is sure to be a favorite of many.

Christmas Graphic set 1 - SLS Lines

Ok so I don't know about you.... but I always ALWAYS end up being late.... not matter how far in advance I start for Christmas.  I always end up adding people to my mailing list, adding home made items WHATEVER always end up late.  And this year as I was telling my husband how I should have started earlier (I started the Christmas card in January, and the gifts in April) he said how I would still end up adding things to my list.... hmmmm.... well he is probably RIGHT.

But I'm sure that I'm not the only one right?!? RIGHT?!? please do tell me that I'm not the only one?!?  For my make for the SLS inspiration blog I decided to make a super fast and easy card.  So I really really love the precolored set that are available over at SLS LINES etsy store like this fab Christmas Graphic set 1 because all the fab elements are all there for you!  They are precolored and you can just print them and go!  How fab is that?!?  This card must have taken me about 15 minutes at the most to make.  And it's still HANDMADE so that's totally awesome.

Easter Buddies - Rick St-Dennis

Oh my... I almost forgot to post my make on the Sparkle and Glitter blog today!!!  Time is just getting away from me because with the holidays I'm trying to finish everything and running out of hours in the day!!!!

The good news is that with this cute little make using Easter Buddies I finally finished the calendar that I was making for my grandmother!!!  I was missing the month of March and I figured that this cutie would be perfect for it since Easter is in March in 2016.

The base of this calendar page was a cereal box and you can see some of the writting through the paint but I think it adds a nice element without having the book paper!  The paper is all a collage of papers from my stash as well as some purple washi tape because I wanted to bring some more of the purple from her dress to the right hand side.

I colored the image with my copics and I fussy cut her out.  I really love how cheerful this turned out to be but with this cutie I don't think it could have turned out in any way other than cheerful!  You can find the calendar that I used here.

I'm entering this little calendar page in the following challenges:
  1. Crafty gals corner challenges - Anything goes
  2. Inspiration destination challenge blog - Anything goes
  3. Digi choosday - Anything goes
  4. Tuesday throwdown - anything goes
That's it for me for today!!!  Hope you have a fabulous day.

12 days of Creepmas blog hop - Airless chambers make

Bwa Ha Ha! Airless Chambers is once again celebrating Creepmas by joining the 12 days of Creepmas Blog Hop organized by Smeared Ink. The AC Crew will be using Rick's awesome Creepmas digis which are available at his Zibbet and Etsy shops or some of his rubber stamps which are available at I Brake For Stamps. Looking for more chances to colour Creepmas images? Check out Rick's new adult colouring book called Creepy Creepmas: A Holiday Adventure for Colorists. Details are here.

Welcome to Day 7 of the 12 Days of Creepmas Blog Hop. The blog roll is in the sidebar for those brave enough to hop through the entire line-up.

For this special make I decided to make a little Creepmas gift :)  So I used the fab set Bookmark set 1
Bookmarks set 1 WINTER
And I made a little video of my process for you guys!!!  Hope you like it!
Here's the look of them and I realized afterwards that the creepy elf has a little ribbon in his face....maybe he was hidding?  I was thinking while making this with the elf how he reminded me of the movie that I saw with my friend this week Krampus.  The elves kinda looked like him.

I put a bunch of little sequins in them and fused the plastic using my little We R Memory Keepers tool.

Hope that you have liked my little inspiration.  Have fun on the hop!!!

Last minute Christmas gift ideas

Hello everyone!  OMG I must be out of my mind.... I have so much stuff to do and yet I manage to add more to my pile of things to do.... why you ask?!?  Well just because I figure it won't take me that long... and it will be fun...

BUT does it go that way?!?  well not really lol it always ends up being longer than expected and more effort than planned but I do end up with a nice result (most of the time) So this is what happened to me here.  I purchased some Christmas stockings for my colleagues to decorate the office.  Of course I purchased the real type of stockings so once they are hung... well you kinda have to put stuff in them.

So I was thinking and thinking and thinking some more about what to do about that.  I figured I would buy a little chocolate ferrero pack for each but that's already 7$+ as well as the stockings.... so couldn't do much more otherwise I'm purchasing too much.  So I figured HEY Christmas is about making stuff... so I can make something!  But what to make that they could use?!?  So I decided to make little Christmas gift tags as well as a little pillow box each.

The little tags were made using some Christmas playing cards and then I used some ribbon as well as some stamps on them and finished it off by tying them.  If you want to see them you have to check out my video here :
Then I used my silhouette machine and cut out some pillow box.  I looked at the images that I had and decided to play with a bunch of different Sassy Cheryl ones because 1) I could :) and 2) I had just purchased a new little one on sale and wanted to use it and 3) I totally love snowman and Santas and her's are fab.

All the little papers were little scraps from my stash :)  Very good to use those!!!

Here are those little pillow box.  The other ones that I did for some DT well you will have to wait to see those later :)

A blustery day - the new digi that I just purchased:
 Half moon Santa
 Hohoho Snowmen
 Better not pout
The sentiments come from Create with TLC.

I hope that you will be inspired if you have some little last minutes gifts or packages to make :)

I'm entering those little pillow boxes in the following challenges:

  1. Christmas at sweet stampin challenge blog - Father Christmas
  2. Crafting for all seasons - Christmas anything but a card
  3. Double click connection - Snowman
  4. Fab n funky challenges - Snowflakes
  5. Tuesday throwdown - Snowflakes
That's it for me!  Hope you like this :)

For this make I decided to play with the adorable Sophia.
Digital Stamp - Sophia (#277), Digi Stamp, Coloring page, Printable Line art for Card and Craft Supply
I used the theme of the month which was use gold or Silver.  In my case I used some gold with the washi tape border.  I also colored the butterfly in a yellow gold color.  I colored my image using some copics and then I fussy cut her out.
To make this I used some paints, I also played with scraps napkins as well as papers :)  The calendar was found here.

Julia Spiri new release - The garden dwellers

ohhhh it's time for a new collection release over at Julia Spiri Etsy store and this time it's about cuties for the garden!!!!  My make is the super cute little Lady Bug.

I took a class over at Scrapbook central a local store this weekend and we played with totally YUMMY silk paint and gels.  I decided to make the background for this little journaling during this process and when I came home all that was required was to color the cutie up and fix her on the page.

I also added some little transparent butterflies that I had from a fellow crafter's clean up sale.  Those were fixed on the page using some E6000 glue.
