so out came the ephemera, the foil, the die, paint and alcohol inks! and with lots of coffee and a few laughs here is what we came up with…tim-holtz-october-tags

we pretty much followed Tim’s tag instructions for this month. i love that i had the opportunity to share my love of Tim’s tags with her!

when creating the card I simply cut out two pansy flowers, inked them using my favourite distress ink in ground expresso (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp layered them using a jingle brad (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp I then just die cut out the ‘handwritten birthday’ (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp sentiment and adding happy and some twine and there you have it!!

quick and simple cards – Eileen Hull

hello everyone!!!
this month the Eileen Hull Inspiration team (http://www NULL.eileenhull putting together a few cards to offer you some inspiration!!  so for today I am here to share with you just how quick and easy you can whip up some cards   using just a few Eileen Hull dies (http://www NULL.sizzix and embossing folders by Sizzix (http://www NULL.sizzix!

I didn’t do step outs as they are so simple you can just look and recreate.. I will mention which Sizzix dies I used though for each.

so to start I thought I would use Eileens Spring Leave’s (https://www NULL.simonsaysstamp steel rule die and do a simple celebrate fall card but cut one of the leaves upside down but thought hey, let’s go with that !!
celebratesometimes we just need a card to let someone know we are thinking of them so that is where the Hello You card came in and was created simply by using the Garland die (http://www NULL.sizzix die and the Kitchen Labels (http://www NULL.sizzix framelit hello-youthis would probably be one of my favourite themed cards because it is all about the coffee and was so easy to create using once again the Garland die  and two dies from the kitchen collection todays-itson-mei also used other thinlits for the words and some chit chat stickers for my cards but that is it for this week! I hope you have had time to drop by and see all the other great cards created by my fellow teamies!!!


TTT – September 2016

hello everyone!!

i am here today to  quickly share with you all my version of this months Tim’s Twelve Tags – Remix 2016 (http://timholtz for all the step outs and the hows to’s drop on over to his site and following along!!

I have to say I fell in love with this technique during the CC103 this summer and I had so much fun playing and was totally tempted to use one of the pieces I created then but nope!! new month, new tag.

so here is what I came up with and felt I failed miserably


but wanted to keep going…. and here is what I ended up with after restamping with a bit of blue and red archival inks  and apply tim’s technique through the stencil


and then I thought I would try it again and see what else I could do….



I have to admit I struggled with this one and even though I felt through the process I was missing something I am pleased with  how it turned out and  I did enjoy the process. that is my favourite thing about doing these monthly tags. it allows me to either practice what it is I love to do or challenges me to try something new. I hope you have all played along this month and have had the opportunity to play with something new
