Lawn Fawn - Seasons Tweetings

Every year my friends and I trade Christmas tags, 
as you may have seen in an early post.

I used the Lawn Fawn Season Tweetings to make one of my tags.

I wanted to try to watercolour the birds with Distress Inks

 Next step was to die cut the birds and twigs.

There was a lot of pieces all together - that was a lot of colouring & cutting.

 Then to make the tags - 
I ran them through the big shot with the snow SU folder.
Then stamped my sentiment.

Then assembly. over & over 

 I changed it up by popping the birds up after a few.

I love the dimension it gives.

Hope you enjoyed them!  
Stop by and check out more to be loaded in the next few days.

Lawn Fawn - Cherry Christmas Christmas Cards

Well I started another batch of Christmas cards, 
and while I adore there ones,
they are very time consuming!!

I used the Lawn Fawn Cheery Christmas Stamp & Die Set.

I found a layout I likes on Pinterest and gave it my own spin.

First it was colouring all stamped images, then cutting them out with dies.
I needed 3 strings of lights for each card 
so there was a lot on running die through for one item.

Then cutting out a blue and  a white background for each item.
The white was then cut again with a stitched rolling hill.

Then assembly.

 times seven.

Then finding background I liked ans lastly,
I used the Glossy Accents for the nose, light bulbs & star.

Once the background was done, I added the bases.

Here as a few of the combinations.

Crop & Create 2017

October was my 4th Crop & Create Event.  

It was awesome as always they never disappoint.

My leg was still pretty sore & injured so I stood most of the time
& did take as many pictures as usual!

 This year we had large sheets of paper to work on.
They were awesome, here is mine with a few of my leftovers around it.

Here we are arriving & settling in.

We had these cards in our bags - we had wonderful attendee bags again as always.
I will have pictures of this soon.
The pin is a Doodlebug Enamel Pin, and were available 
for purchase, so of course I had to have one.

 Here is the crew in the new t-shirts we made for the crop.

Here are the little goodie bags that I made for the girls.  
He all have a little goodie for each other.

A few days ago we registered for the Winnipeg Crop & Create in the spring,
so I will be able to attend 2 next year!!

What a great and well organized Crop!

Enamel Dot Storage

I opened my Enamel dot case and they popped out 
just like a spring loaded snake.

I seperated the sheets so the dots could be sorted by colour.

I then attached them along the top of a cardstock sheet and
inserted them inside of a plastic bag to keep them protected.

They are only attached at the top so that I can place paper 
under the strips to match colours.

 Hopefully this helps me find what I need faster,
and keep everything organized.

Have a crafty day.

Paper Organization

For the last 10 weeks I have been recovering from a leg mishap.
It seems to be taking forever.
While I have been recovering I have done a lot of Pinteresting & 
watching videos about organizing and scrapbooking.

So I will share a few tasks that I have done.

I was gifted a bunch of Stampin Up Scraps, 
so I started to sort them by colour and size.

Next I sorted in my scraps that I had,
they needed to be resorted just a bit.

Next I needed to clean out the drawer behind my 8.5 x 11 cardstock.

I hung files with colour tabs on the top of the files for the scraps.

I now have my 12x12, 8.5x11 and scraps all in my desk drawer 
beside where I sit so everything is at my fingertips.

 Hopefully this helps to get more of these get used up.

Have a create day!!
