Hello Santa Layout

Hello Everybody!

Today I finished a layout page using the single sketch at Stick It Down.  I love the triangles!  And thankfully one of the team members-Melissa Kay-told how to make these triangles.  You make a 4 inch square and cut it in half.  What??  Yeah that easy--and thank goodness because until I visited her blog I had no idea.  LOL  Geometry and I have never gotten along--especially since high school.  But that's a story for a different day.

I used a glitter paper from Recollections.  Most of the papers, letters, and stickers are from Doodlebug.  I don't know what the collection is called but it was one of my favorites from a few years ago.  Also, there are some Tim Holtz stars at the top, clear rhinestones, a bling candy cane from Hobby Lobby and some Thickers (the red metallic corners). 

Here's the sketch.

Thank you so much for stopping by!  Until next time my friends...keep that Christmas spirit coming even if it's January! :)

Happy New Year!

Hello Everybody!

Happy New Year!  I hope everyone has had a great couple of weeks!  I have had a great time with family and friends-and hope for more of that in 2019 :)

I got to be a little crafty-and I didn't realize how much I missed it!

There is a Facebook Group Challenge to do a Tim Holtz tissue wrap tag.  I had to dust off my supplies (yikes!) and then retrain myself on how to use the paints and stuff.  Very sad I know.  But there is a happy ending.  I made this cool tag and got a few more papers going because I poured out too much product.  A little goes a long way-LOL  It's all good though!

This is about 99% all Tim Holtz.  Here's what I used:
Ranger Tag
Distress Paints: Broken China, Chipped Sapphire, Salt Ocean, Picked Raspberry
Distress Oxide Ink: Picked Raspberry (on the 2019 cardstock under the glitter, around the edges
Melange Tissue Paper
Distress Spray Stain-Picket Fence
Lower Case Sizzix TH letter dies (663074)
Rubons-Life Quotes, Botanical, Words
Big Chat Stickers
Distress Glitter Spun Sugar
Glossy Accents
Mirrored Stars
Natural Trimmings Ribbon

The butterfly takes center stage on this cool background.  I didn't want to cover up that part of the tissue paper.  I added water to react with the paints also.  

Like I said-it has been too long since I made a tag so hopefully there will be more in the future.  :)  There are a few backgrounds in the making from this tag-so be sure to check back!

Until next time my friends...Get your wings and let's fly!
