Mini-Album Flower Book

 This mini book was made using my Zutter tool, lots of stamps, inks, paint, H20's and other supplies from my stash. I love making mini-books. 

I really enjoyed my real flower garden this year. 
I had beautiful blooms all summer until we started having cool nights late October, these were pulled and lots of pansies were planted. My mother said I must have a green thumb. I told her it was the rich soil we put in the flower garden, in a little area about 8' x 8' my hubby and granddaughter dumped 5 bags of manure and 10 bags of top soil and then during the summer I added epson salt mixed with water to the soil. I didn't let any of the water touch the petals. 
All through the summer, I had roses, petunia, marigolds, zinnia, sweet potato plants, shasta daises, ice plant, vinca, geranium, verbena, cypress, cardinal vine, mandevilla hanging plant and Boston fern hanging plant. 
We have had very cold freezing weather over the last week with ice and freezing rain the last few days and still some of these plants are hanging on, My pansies will live into springtime. I can't believe the Boston fern on the porch, vinca near the house, petunias and ice plant in my flower garden are still hanging on and new blooms coming out during this cold weather. I went out in the cold freezing rain this past Thursday and brought in the mandevilla and geranium plants. They are doing well and new blooms are coming out. 

Thank you for looking and have a very nice day!

12 Tags of 2015 - November

Yeah! I finished my 12 Tags of 2015 ~ November tag today. I used what Tim Holtz supplies I had in my stash along with other supplies.
My background stamp looks a bit busy but I really like how it turned out on this tag. I used copper leaf on edges of tag. Xyron was used to apply adhesive to cork and then die cut using Block Talk alphabet. Distress markers were used to color pumpkins. Distress ink was used to color cork and trim. Tim's Air Spritzer was used with black Distress marker on pumpkins.

Thanks for stopping by and have a very nice day!

Christmas Cards

I've been working on Christmas Cards over the last few weeks after I completed my journals from free online class by Carolyn Dube.
I'm keeping my cards pretty simple this year; I used TH festive gent die and TH music stamp. The gent was die cut with black card stock and a red and green card stock was used to die cut wreath and scarf and then applied to gent. Rock candy stickles was added to wreath and scarf and heat set to dry.
A sentiment was stamped inside of card. 
 I've also made a few cards with TH angelic die and TH victorian carolers die.

My Journal from Free Online Workshop

I had fun using supplies from my stash to make my journal from viewing Carolyn's free workshop.
This is a link if you would like to join her 5 free lessons plus a bonus lesson:
I have signed and included Carolyn's "permission to play" in my journal. Check below for more details on this journal.

I used Gelli Arts papers, DecoArts paint, rubber stamps, stencils made with my Cameo, mask made with my Cameo, Dylusions spray inks, gesso, printed paper and the base of this journal was made with cardboard. A box knife is all you need to cut it up to the size you want. This journal is 5 3/4" by 7 3/4."
