Prima Journaling Page with Julie Nutting's Mindy Stamp

I just thought I would share with you my Prima Journaling page. I put a space under where you can pull out the tag. I wrote a note to my niece Taylor in hopes that maybe someday she will read it. I used The Prima Romantique and the Julie Nutting's Mindy stamp. Boy, was this a fun page to work on my texture technique using molding paste and the Prima Brick Stencil. I threw in some Lindy's Stamp Gang and my all time favorite color of Tim Holtz Distress Ink-Vintage Photo. I also used some Prima flowers that I have had in my stash and the Engraver buttons for the year Taylor was born. Need I say that they are just awesome!!! I will be using these in the new Prima Ambassador demo's and you will love them also when you see them!! I did use a EK Success punch that was given to me by my friend in Angel. I love it...so dainty. Hope you like my creation as much as I had creating it.

Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2014 March Tag

Hi folks I am back with my March 2014 tag for Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2014. This month was a challenge for me. I did not have the stamps that Tim used nor the Spritzer Sprayer. The Spritzer Sprayer is on my list of wants....or can not find. I have had one of these spritzers in the past and just seen it not to long ago when I was cleaning. But, that was before the CHA release in January. My thoughts is if I can not find it then I will buy it. But, for now it is on my hold list. LOL So here is the first and second stamp technique that Tim showed us on his blog. I hope you enjoy them as much as I had fun making them. 3 months down and another 9 months to go!!

Inspired by Dave Matthews Band Journal Pages

I love Dave Matthews Band and have been wanting to do a Journal page using a quote from a song and use a fire dancer. I so love how she turned out and I used the Bohemian Bazaar Paper line!!! It worked great with this background. I had started this background you know when you use stencils and have the negative left....Yes, that is what I used for this. I thought it made it look like fire. I used my Cameo to cut out the fire dancer and the flowers. Hope you like my creation as much as I had fun creating!!!


Have a great weekend!!!

This month for my Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2014 February. I decided to do 3. That way if one does not work out another one might. LOL I kinda liked them all so I will share all of them. I am trying my hardest to hang in there and do this each month. So I tried to use everything that Tim used in his tags. These are so much fun!! Each time is a different technique. And no matter how many you make they always turn out different. So, here is my tags for February. Hope you like!!!

My Blitsy Dream Room Makeover

First off I would like to introduce myself. I was the winner of the Blitsy Dream Craft Room. I won this awesome room along with my friend Angel in Louisiana. Angel called me Christmas morning as I was cooking Christmas dinner and said we won, We Won. Of course I had no idea what we had won until she told me. I was so shocked to have won this amazing prize it took me an hour to start back cooking. LOL I still find it hard to believe that we won this on Christmas Day 2013. This has been an adventure from then on. Getting exactly what Blitsy has on their set was my dream come true. They also gave me 2 short Alex from Ikea and 2 tall Alex’s. Then separating and organizing my stuff began when I knew what I was getting. Then came the furniture delivery on January 25. OMG!! Then the assembly began. What a dream that has really come true!! So, here is my tour of my room.

Here is from the door looking into my area

What you see here is my dress form with all my lace and ribbons. Also the cubes that I stenciled with Prima Marketing Flourish Stencil. I love this stencil and you can see that I used it all the way though to tie in the pattern throughout my creative space.

Here is a closer look. I used Stencil Brushes and Acrylic Black paint.

I also used the same stencil on this after painting them the Robin’s Egg Blue left over paint from the walls.

Here is a look across the room showing the Tall shelving that I received one on this side of the desk and the other one is on the other side.

Straight on view of all the shelving units together at the end of the room.

Here is where I keep my glitter in several salt and pepper shakers also my stamps in an old wire basket these are the stamps I use all the time.

In these suitcases I store my wooden stamps and extra embellishments.

Here is under the island where I store all my big tools, dies and adhesives

Here is the full shelving unit that I also received with all the drawers on the side is the short Alex where I store all my tools. Cutting Mattes, trimmers, punches and mixed media products.

Last but not least is the lamp shade I made using a doily table cloth. I used 2 floral wire wreaths. Then I stitched around to the outside to keep it in place on the top and then tacked it at the bottom. I put some handmade flowers and trim on the top and there is my lampshade. (I got the 400 watt bulbs to use in this at IKEA. They do not get hot.)

I hope you have enjoyed a tour of my Blitsy Dream Craft Room Makeover. I so love my area now and it is more than I could have ever dreamed of having!! Thanks so much Blitsy!!! You Rock!! Thanks for making my Christmas last year one that I will not ever forget!!

Hugs and keep on Crafting!!

Tim Holtz ASSEMBLAGE CLOCK with Mini Album

Hello friends this months Design Team Project I decided to make myself this Tim Holtz Assemblage Clock with Mini Album. I have made several and decided it was time to make my own. This photo is one of the most special to me. It is the last photo taken of my mother and Father before my father passed away in 1981. Several of the photos in the mini album I matched up about the same age of my mother and father. I also added some with us kids and the only family photo ever taken of all of us. I used the Flamingo Scraps Warehouse Sale Box — Combination Box to create with. I also used several different pieces to create this. I made a space out of chipboard and covered it so I could install an small mini album in the back of some very special photo's for me to remember my Father, Mother and siblings. If there is anything that I used in making this...Please contact Suzanne at Flamingo Scraps and she will be able to special order it for you. Hope you like my creation as much I love having this keepsake.

A new way to keep track of Ticket Stubs for 2014

Happy New Year all!! Getting the New Year off right I decided for this Design Team project to create a frame to keep all ticket stubs from thing I will do in 2014.

If you can not find the embelishments in the store make sure you contact Suzanne at Flamingo Scraps to see if she can get it for you. Hope you like my creation as much as I enjoyed making it.
