Say it with Words!



Hello and welcome,

Today's piece has been created for A Vintage Journey.....
Challenge 2 'Say it with Words.' Here is the link...A Vintage Journey

How lucky we are to be happy and healthy is what I try to remind myself everyday.  My picture wheel is about our ONE and ONLY ride to this life and to ENJOY THE JOURNEY.  Embrace the today and now!
I hope my message shows through in this piece.



Enjoy the Journey is from one of Tim's stamp sets.  I also placed a mini globe in the hot air balloon. (I only wish they lit up like the mini lanterns.)  I didn't do a step by step tutorial as I changed the layout too many times.  I used Pumice Stone on the picture wheel, Peeled Paint &Vintage Photo on the balloon and Black Soot on the Umbrella Man.











































Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoy what you see. Any questions or comments please feel free to leave me a message.

Remember Me


I have made this piece for a friend of mine who has recently lost her husband.  A lovely lovely man he was. RIP Mal.  I wanted to create something masculine with a little femininity to it hence the huge flower.  I thought a tag booklet is always nice because you can hold it in both hands.  Somewhere to place her own photographs and write her memories in a very private way.

I've also decided to enter this piece into a challenge at A Vintage Journey.  They are calling on anything Tim. Why not create something yourself.......Here is the link....A Vintage Journey.























One of Tim's new Custom Knobs from Idea-ology.




















Used Tims Clipboard die. Photos can be placed in here.




















Some journaling can be placed on the back.





















One of Tim's file tabs in leather for decoration.




















Another place to write a message. This stays up with a magnet.





















Another place to add some photos.




















Not forgetting there was love. They're initials. Last page.




















Back Cover.




























































Well there it is my Remember Me Tag Booklet.

Thanks for stopping by. Enjoy your day!!

Tims 12 Tags of 2014 March

Hello and welcome,

Today I am showing you my tags for Tim's 12 Tags of 2014 March.
Smudge Stamping is the technique used.  There are two tags this month so you can see one of 'full strength' and one of 'second generation' at the same time.
Why not join us and pop on over to Tim Holtz where there is an easy to follow tutorial.











































I just love colouring seam binding. 
Thanks for stopping by my blog. 
Have a great day!!

Today I have a very quick post with a  birthday card and matching tag to share. This was made for a dear friend who lives in Wales. Her birthday was in February and now that I know she has received the parcel I can show you.


Front of Card. Here I used my embossing pen to go around the edges then I used embossing powder and heat set it.




















Inside envelope is a tag with a message.




















Tag for present. I just love this birdcage stamp from Kaszazz. So Vintage.
