2 of T.Holtz'12 Days of Christmas

Tim Holtz started on the 1st of Dec. & for 12 days he does a tag & gives great tutorals.
Well I attempted Day 3 & Day 5.
This first picture is from Day 5 - I pretty much followed him, but I didn't do the enameled numbers. Anyway, I was pretty pleased on how this turned out....

This one is from Day 3 - I made a card instead of a tag & I love how it turned out for me. I couldn't get a "nest" made to look right ( probably cause I didn't have the right materials) so I planted the birds feet under the flower.

this 3rd pic. is a close up of the bird & the cool tissue tape flower that Tim shows how to make. Not bad for my first one...

Items used for both: Distress inks &/or re-inkers: cranberry;red pepper;aged mahagony;walnut stain;peeled paint;forest moss
Archival Inks: Jet Black; Cinnamon
stamps: santa;Merry Christmas
tissue tape
Distress crack paint: tea dye
paint dabber: snow cap white
forest green distress stickles & rock candy distress stickles
tag & bookplate die.
other: ribbon; tree stamp;background word stamp;branch
hope I didn't leave anything out.
Please take time to go to Tim Holtz blog & check out all his wonderful stuff. You can learn soooo much.
O.K. I will stop drooling (for now)...
untill next time.....

Mabel, the Bingo Queen

"Mabel, the Bingo Queen???"

Jumped from April to November. Wow, where did summer go? Here it is fall - soon to be that BRRR- freezing cold with that white stuff on the ground.

Well, I have a sister that has a birthday on Monday( 15th) & she loves to play
bingo. So, of course I made a birthday card for her. Hope she likes her card....

Bingo embossing folder &, die cutout are T.Holtz ; stamp : Stampers Anonymous ( T.H. collection);
Distress ink pads; copics; C.T.M.H. embelishments;
Kraft c.s. & white c.s.; computer printed saying ( can't remember what font).
some of the techniques used were from T. Holtz's book "A Compendium of Curiosities
....until another time..... enjoy...

Crafty Organizational Blog hop....

Thank you for stopping in & please leave a comment before you leave to your next stopping place.
- I hope you arrived here from Leanne's place for our first blog hop & hope you all go away with lots of creative ideas to get your juices flowing once you made a full circle of hopping.
Here is a list of the participants in order:

Photograph Storage - Leanne http://scrappingamma.blogspot.com/
Embellishment Storage - Jo http://buckeyejo.blogspot.com/ ( you are here )
Stamp Storage - Wendy K. http://www.myscrapbookingblog.com/
Ink Pad Storage - Ramona http://create-with-joy.blogspot.com/

Tools Storage - Mary http://mbryt1.blogspot.com/
Paper Storage (including Page Kits) - Mary http://mbryt1.blogspot.com/

My category was for embellishment storage. I have tried many different things from baskets to boxes to jars and even used a hot wheels storage container. I was not happy with them- always searching. Below you will see what I now use & love it. It sits right beside my desk & I can see what I have from brads to eyelets to flowers to those dew-drops....
It came from the tool section at your local Walmart store. I am sure you can find it at K-Mart or Lowes or just about anywhere that sells tools & such.
You can even mount it on the wall if you would want to.

a fun card class

Took a fun card class yesterday at Cottage Stampers in Hartville OH. Linda taught a little on the "Judith" stamps. When I say a little- she really taught a lot, but there is so much more & those stamps are so versatile that she is going to give us another class so we can learn what all we can do/make with just one stamp. Talk about "thinking outside the box". WOW. That will be a fun class.
Hope you like 3 of the 6 cards that I am showing.

Until another time.....
