Today I have a fun Halloween Tag to share with you.   I found a cute stamp at the Scrapbook Expo and knew it would be perfect to use with the Spider Web Corner Die. 



To make this tag I covered a large manila tag with patterned paper. I stamped and embossed the sentiment on black card stock and embossed with white embossing powder. Stamp the broom and emboss with black embossing powder.

I stamped the Prima Doll on white card stock and dressed her up with patterned paper.
Cut 2 Spider Web corners and adhere them to opposite corners.   

Adhere your doll, stamped sentiment and broom to tag as shown. 
Add flowers and a twine bow for a finishing touch.

Love Mini Album with Tutti Designs

Hi friends!  Today I'm sharing a mini album using dies by Tutti Designs!  Tutti Designs has been busy creating away so many fabulous new dies so be sure to stop by the store and check out the new 
Today I will be using some older dies that are a must have in any die makers stash. I'll start of by sharing the cover of my album.

The first page was made with the Tutti Designs Triple Flower Edge Die. Each page has several pockets. I adhered it to the main page just on the very edge of the bottom and side of the die cut and pocket. 
There is a journal card in the pocket and I used the Stitched Nested Rectangle Dies to cut a mat and to cutout the journal card. Adhere them together and tuck it in behind the die cut. See the close up below.





 Pages 3 & 4 have similar pockets with tags cut from the Stitched Nested Tag Dies. I adhere the journal card to the front after cutting them out with the Stitched Nested Rectangle Dies. I also cut 2 more tags using the Stitched Nested Circles and the Stitched Nested Squares.  




Pages 5 & 6 are exactly the same.  The page has two flip ups that hold several photos.  The front cover has layered hearts cut from the Stitched Nested Hearts Dies.  For these I made a belly band and tucked the hearts into the band.




The final page has an exploding mat when you untie the ribbon.  It has room enough for several small photos and journal spots. The Mats were cut with the Stitched Nested Squares

The back cover is very simple. Simply adhere The Leaves Corner by adding adhesive to the top and side border of the die cut.  Once it's dry tuck your photo mat under the die cut.



I hope you enjoyed this fun mini and hope you give it a try.  The Stitched Nested die shapes are a must have, they can be used for so many of your cards and projects!  You can always add more embellishments and die cuts to this fun album!!

Fall Colors and a Winter Storm Warning!!

Hello friends!  So yes you heard me right, we are under a winter storm warning with 5-8 inches of snow headed our way.  We spent the weekend winterizing the outside of our home and bringing in our potted plants and blowing out the sprinkler system.  Our storm is supposed to arrive tonight so thought I better get out and go for a Fall nature walk.  Here are some of the photos.










 I know these flowers are all dry now but I still thought they were beautiful with all their seeds.













It was amazing to see the butterflies, they were everywhere!  This sagebrush flower at one point had 3 butterflies on it.  I love butterflies!!







These photos are of a fun place I know that gives you the old west vibe that I love so much.  So many people don't understand it but living in Wyoming in such a rustic environment, these are little treasures you see driving through my neighborhood.:)






 Hope you're having a beautiful Fall!!!  Winter photos coming!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog!!

Witches Brew card with Tutti Designs

Hi friends!  Today I'm sharing a project using dies by Tutti Designs!  Tutti Designs has been busy creating away so many fabulous new dies so be sure to stop by the store and check out the new 
August release of 
Fall and Halloween Dies.

Today I have a fun Halloween card to share with you.   I found a cute stamp at the Scrapbook Expo and knew it would be perfect to use with the Cooking Witch Die and the Nested Stitched Circles





To make this card I used a white card base. I stamped and embossed the sentiment at the top center of the base.

Cut 2 circles from the Nested Stitched Circles and layer them on top of each other using  foam squares to pop them up and give them dimension.

Die cut the Cooking Witch from Black Card stock and using foam  squares, adhere her to the center of the circles.

To give the smoky appearance on the card I used Black Soot Distress Ink and a dauber and went over the edges of the card. 

as a finishing touch I used clear Nuvo drops and green glitter to make bubbles on the pot and above the pot.

Shabby Tag with Clear Scraps

Hi friends! Today I'm sharing a shabby tag for Clear Scraps and saying a heartfelt thank you

to Susan Frase, Cristal Hobbs (Pinky) and one of the most fabulously talented design teams

I have had the honor to work with.  

These ladies are kind hearted and when you need support they are there for each and every one of us.

It was truly a pleasure and an inspiration to have the fortune to work with each of them.

The days are getting shorter and we are actually feeling much cooler temps where I live.  

More rain and cool mornings and warmer days, all signs of Fall for us.  Fall is my favorite time of year,

I love the sound of rustling leaves and the sound of the Aspen's and here in the Rockies the fresh clean air.

The colors are so rich and pretty, I just can't get enough.

You can actually feel the change coming.  

We will still have some warm days but not hot summer days.  

 Hope you are all enjoying your Summer! So here's one more tag for Summer!

Seems like life is always too busy for the most important things,
however this fun tag won't take you long at all. I created this tag with 
IMG_4426
To alter the the frame I simply used Distress Stain on it and then added embossing powder in 3 colors, 
Purple, Blue and Copper.

Clear Scraps Fancy Gate Chipboard Embellishment

Hello friends! Debbie with you today sharing a fun layout using the Fancy Gate Chipboard Embellishment.
I started this layout by building up the background using modeling paste and the Clear Scraps 6" Seamless Flowers stencil to give my background some texture.




IMG_4431
I wanted to give the Fancy gate a worn patina finish so I did all that with Distress Stain and embossing powder.
I started out by giving the chipboard a coat of Distress Stain in Vintage Photo and then added my clear ink.
Sprinkle one color at a time and then heat set. I used a pearly green and a copper color. Randomly sprinkle it in
different areas of the chipboard as you see in the above and below photos.

When the layout was finished I added some seed beads and sequins using Gel medium to adhere them to the layout.

I finished this layout by adding fussy cut flowers and butterflies from the coordinating patterned paper.

Hope you give this chipboard technique a try, it's one of my go to techniques for many projects.
