Mimi Snow Album ( Paper Bag Album)

Mini Snow Album (Paper Bag)

I finished a UFO today !  I created this mini album from three paper bags using Recollections Blue Christmas Papers and varies punches and embellishments from my stash. It was created as a sample for a teacher, who wanted a project for her students to make to display their photos from their photography class. The project never came to fruition... but I had already started the sample and decided to complete it. Felt good to have a completed UFO !

I decorated the inside pages using  various punches   Small Snowman Ek Success, Mittens Ek Success, Large Snow Flake and mini snow flake Marvy, Medium snow Flakes from Cricut Accent Essential Cartridge . I used  Color Box Cream White and Robin's Egg Pigment ink to ink the edges of the papers, and some of the snow flakes and the snow men. Such a cool effect !

                The back cover; I used the Tim Holtz Snowman die and the On the Edge Snow Flake die. The letters where created using  Cricut  Plantin SchoolBook cartridge. And the small snow flakes were   Marvy punch. I further embellished with buttons from Recollections and bling from my stash.

12 Tags of 2013 November Tag

Hey everybody , Happy Thursday afternoon. Wow one week before Thanksgiving... where did the time go ?
Quick update on my foot... I have  9 more days in this boot !! Almost there... it's been cold and rainy here so I'm getting some aching, other than that it's doing great.
Okay... this months tag Tim is using the Leaf Blueprint Framelit. OMG... I took one look at it and decided it was going to be hard and tedious. To my surprise it was not. Go check out his Tag, this is so cool. The look of those framelits intimidated me, I kept hoping Tim would not do a tag with them, BUT he did ... LOL  http://timholtz.com/12-tags-of-2013-november/.
What a cool effect... this has got to be the fastest tag I've ever done. The framelit was amazingly easy; I actually love it ...  feeling like a "real artist" about now. I may have to get some more  , the Snowman and the Christmas Tree are pretty cute... you should check them out.
That crystal embossing antiquities has such cool properties... I liked using it ( I just knew I was going to mess up... when I saw Tim tips for heating)... I got it right the first time! Then the chalk... oh so cool to scribble over the embossing; this chalkboard effect is amazing.  Another tag done more techniques learned what fun. Well since Tim got the framelit out of the way I can't imagine what we'll be doing for December ... can you ? Well hope you are trying these. Have a Blessed Thanksgiving and see you next month. Don't forget to go and see the creations of the  Tim community on Tim's sight; these are some creative folks !!
