Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2016 -- The Remix -- February, 2016

Super Bowl Sunday, early February, and time to work on Tim's tag! This tag involved another Valentine's Day theme so here's hoping Cupid likes it! The Remix this month for Tim involved the Mono Print Technique and the Embossing with Texture Paste Technique . When I started, I wasn't sure what I would do or how it would turn out and I just followed my heart. As with last month, two new techniques for me to try. I had a couple of not-so-pretty backgrounds during my first couple of tries at the monoprint...


Frilly & Funkie -- Enjoy Your Embossing #2 -- February 2016

Okay, snow day #2. It never happens that I get two days in a row. More snow. More shoveling. Ugh. I forge ahead even though the snow is blowing, my hands and back are rebelling from picking up the snow shovel again, my embossing gun is calling out to's warm. So as a second entry into the Enjoy Your Embossing with the Frilly and Funkie blog that is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique , here is some more embossing. The process for the tag is after the photo. I started with a #8 manila...


Frilly & Funkie -- Enjoy Your Embossing #1 -- February, 2016

Snowy day. Cruddy weather. Me and the snow shovel. I love winter but I hate shoveling snow. I'm rearranging my craft room and I think to myself since I'm at home let's experiment with some alcohol inks. I knew that the Frilly and Funkie blog challenge was about enjoying embossing but until i had a snow day I wasn't sure I could. This challenge is graciously supported by The Funkie Junkie Boutique . After shoveling the driveway and realizing that there was no way I was going to go anywhere anytime...


Simon Says Stamp -- Rays of Sunshine #2 (February 2016)

Here I am watching the Super Bowl. I'm trying really hard NOT to watch it because if I do I know the Broncos will lose. My friends will be upset if they do and since it would be bad luck for me to "watch" the game I figure if I listen to it and craft all will be well.....right? We'll see. So I wanted to try the watercoloring technique with Dina Wakley's acrylic paints. My first try at it was earlier this week during a snow day. The Monday challenge with Simon Says Stamp focuses on her products and...


Simon Says Stamp -- Rays of Sunshine (February, 2016)

So, earlier this week I had a snow day. A bit of cabin fever. My beloved was traveling so it's just me and the kittens (the cats, that is), the snow, and a snow shovel. The weather was cruddy. It was Monday. And, Simon Says Stamp posts a "Rays of Sunshine" challenge focusing on Dina Wakley products. Great! Except I don't have many things that are Dina Wakley -- not because I don't like her but I'm still building my fortress of craftroom greatness. I did a search for Dina Wakley stuff and found a...
