12 Tags of 2015 - January

Hello everyone!

I wanted to share with you today that I have jumped on Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2015 bandwagon. I have decided to try this out every month so I could learn different techniques and such cause I do love all his products.

So here is my take on it....

I didn't get a lot of pictures of my process...I didn't even realize that it would be great to do until I was reading other's blogs that have done their tags already. But you can see the steps that Tim takes for his tag here...

I am kinda excited about this and can't wait for the other months :) #12tagsof2015

So here are some of the pics of the process that I did 

Here is the tag with the tissue paper and the painted background.

Here is the numbers I painted using Tim's directions and the number 5 glittered

Here it is with the chitchat words adhered and the glue n seal applied ready for the distress marker

And again the final result. I really love how this turned and can't believe I did this. I hope that I inspire you to come and join in on the fun this year!!

Thanks for stopping by and looking!!! :)

Valentines Card and Hearts

Hello everyone!!

I just wanted to share with you a card and shabby wire hearts that I made for a friend for Valentines Day. It's also a DT Project for Kraft Supplies 4 U (formerly Craftsupplies1).

Here is the card...the base is just the Recollections corrugated card base and the paper I used is from two different lines. The first one is the one that I used for the base and banner is Glitz Design Pretty in Pink and for the bingo card and hearts I used MME Love Me. I didn't think I would be able to pull it off putting those two papers together but I think it turned out nicely!
I also have some flowers and the lace and trim is from Kraft Supplies 4 U. At the bottom I added a banner and stamped the word love, added a bow made from jute and added a resin heart from the KS4U on top. I think it turned out so cute!!

Here is the wire hearts I made too...

Here is the close up of the one on top...this heart I bent wire to form it and then added acrylic sprays from KS4U and a whole bunch of flowers. For the bow I used a seam binding bow that my friend Marla Rizzo gave me and some laces and trims from KS4U. 

I already had a little wire heart that I got from my friend Laurie's shop...they are so little and cute!! They are originally black so I painted it a light ivory and added some of the smallest flowers and acrylic sprays from KS4U that I had in my supplies. 

I absolutely love how these hearts turned out and I think I am going to make!!!

Last but not is my video that is over on my YouTube channel with all the details:

Masculine Card Share

Hello everyone!

I hope you all are enjoying your week! Today I wanted to share a Masculine Card that I made for my hubby for his birthday :) I got this idea from a pin on Pinterest and in turn led me to Tim Holtz's blog where he used somewhat of a similar technique on a tag. I really love how it turned out!

I just toke a piece of black cardstock for the base of the card and another piece for the front. I glued down all the little junk findings as well as the letters and some dry wall tape. Then I started putting foil tape over the top using my bone folder and Making Memories Stylus/Paper Piercer. After everything was covered in the foil tape, I then painted over everything with some Black Soot Distress Paint and then I hit it with my heat gun for a few seconds then I wiped it away with a paper towel. I had to do some hard rubbing in areas but then I figured out that it is easier to use Sand!  I then added some Antiqued Bronze and Broken China distress paint here and there using the same technique. I then colored some metal washers and some brads that look like screws with some Alcohol Ink in Rust and Copper. I hope he likes it!

Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you enjoy the rest of your day! :)

Rememberlutions Jar

Hello everyone!

I just wanted to do a somewhat quick share with you cause it has been forever! I altered this Mason Jar for a "Rememberlution Jar" or Blessing Jar.It's also a DT Project for Kraft Supplies 4 U. I got the idea off of a post I seen on Facebook one day and all you need to do for the entire year is just remember to write down the things you have accomplished or that you want to remember on a piece of paper. Then at the end of the year on New Years Eve you dump them all out and read them. You can then see all the things you have accomplished for the year.

Oh and no I didn't pick up another team to design on Craftsupplies1 changed their name to Kraft Supplies 4 U because she got her own site. So there is no Etsy or Zibbet Shop anymore. The link to the new store site is

So here is the jar......

I was trying to get different angles so you could see all the yummy stuff I put on there from the store :) On the top there is some doilies and on the jar I used some of the flowers from the shop. 

Here is my video with all the details on how I created this:
