Christmas Tag Album ~

Hey guys!!
I have a really cute Christmas mini album ( done at Collins Group, Houston) with Dyan Reaveley made out of tags.
No kidding, super cute !!!!

These are those extra large tags  by Tim Holtz.  Smaller ones for the inside.
We used her stencils and stamps to decorate the tags, after we applied color, using the Dylusions Ink Sprays.  
The inside pages with the smaller tags attached.
Hey, have a great weekend ~
see ya soon!

Avocado arts~ Happy Hollydays!

Hi Guys!!
I have some cute and easy labels and tags for you using the 
Hollydays set by Avocado Arts!
Super cute!!!!!

Love the images and the label!!! 
The deer is pretty cute too!

The Tree Tag is embossed and cut on the fold, to make the tag. 

I took a sheet of mailing labels and spayed it with color.  Then I used different 
colors on ink and stamped the fun images on the labels.  I used them to
 decorate my Christmas packages and cards.

Try It Tuesday~Holiday Stamp Carving fun!

Hi guys!
Thanks for stopping in for Try It Tuesday!!!
I wanted to carve some Holly Leaves for a small gift bag idea, so that is where I started!

Decided on Candy Cane's too!  Not hard, just draw the image on the
 rubber and begin to carve around the image.

I stamped the images on these little paper bags by Queen & Co.
  Great for a "treat" or small gift!
I outlined the stamped image with a FT  black marker.

These were really quick and turned out cute!!
See ya soon~

Christmas with Darkroom Door!!!

Hi  guys!!!
I have a shadow box to show you using Darkroom Door's, new, Christmas stamps.

1. Emboss the ornaments, from the Brushed Christmas Vol. 1 & 2 set. I used two different gold tones of embossing powder.
2. Emboss the Christmas Tree and medium Star from Brushed Christmas Vol. 1 stamp set. I used white for the tree and gold for the star.
3. Fussy cut them out of the paper. I used a Christmas set of paper by Authentique. I stamped the images on this paper using Versa Mark stamp pad. Then set with a heat tool.
4. Each section of the shadow box is lined with pattern paper from the paper set. 

5. Arrange the cut out shapes in the box sections. 
6. The Christmas Script Background Stamp is stamped over the ornaments. All four of them, in Black Archival ink.
7. String the ornaments together with twine of jute
8. Arrange in the shadow box and adhere to the box. I used hot glue and pop dots to secure the embossed ornaments.
9. Stamp the Robin Eclectic Stamp and fussy cut it out. I stamped it with Potting Soil Archival Ink.

10. I added extra embellishments, pine cones, glass bulbs, bird nest (from our yard), old child's spoon (on top for handle). Whatever you have to make it your own.
11. The last thing I did was, sprayed the shadow box with white irRESISTible Texture Spray by Imagine Crafts. Looks like snow!!
Supplies Used:
Darkroom Door Brushed Christmas Vol 1 Rubber Stamp Set
Darkroom Door Brushed Christmas Vol 2 Rubber Stamp Set

Try It Tuesday~remember the metal six sign?

Well hubby framed it out for me and it made all the difference.

$20 for the sign and what is so neat, there is a 7 on the back~ kids say, not a chance,
 but we're ready if they change their mind :):) 

 He used  1" x  4" cedar boards.
  He mitered the corners and I love that :)
At the bottom I added one Tim Holtz metal label  with
 the word " blessed" in it ~ because we are!

Our " little" tree~ all we need.......
Thanks for stopping by~
See ya soon.
