Stuck In “Tag Land”

 

 

Newsprint #117166

Newsprint #117166

Yesterday was going to be a day of getting a few cards started and working on the mini album I keep alluding to.

 

I’ve used the Newsprint paper over the scrap pieces of file folders from the Greeting Card Holder I made.  Since it is such a dark combination of papers I’ve added bits of Tempting Turquoise in places to liven it up a bit.

In the process of adding the tags and embellishments I’ve made is a trial in and of itself.  Choosing which item to put where.  These pages are not very big and I am having to curb my tendency of  over doing it with the embellishments.

 

What a MESS!

What a MESS!

 

I’ve kind of boxed myself into a small area to work because of all the stuff I have out.

I think I know know why Tracy has that beautiful brown fabric in her crafting area.  To cover up the evidence 🙂

While I’m in the creative spirit, putting things away after I’ve used them is not one of my virtues.  I may  need that item(s) in just the next few minutes.

The orange and turquoise stuff to the right in the photo are sticker and border  pieces from a long discontinued Simply Scrappin’ set from a couple years ago and I hate throwing stuff out just because it is no longer available.  I keep telling myself I can make them work but just haven’t found the right application just yet.  Keep dreaming girl….

Someday, I’m going to get the Tim Holtz tag thing figured out.  Why I have such a block on this I don’t know, but I’ll keep trying.

This time I stamped the images from Artistic Etchings with VersaMark and then used my stash of Perfect Pearls to color the images.  I tried to make the colors darker at the bottom of the Eiffel tower and lighter at the top with the copper, bronze, and pearl powders.  It sort of worked…at least until I added the key and the crown images and colored them with the Perfect Pearls which got mixed up with the previous applications on the tower.

Oh well, I’ll keep trying.

The key is small and fits well on this smaller sized tag.  I like that it is by itself on the ribbon and has a reference to it in the stamped image.  What I’ll do with it next I don’t know but maybe it will find its way on something.

I had lofty ambitions of making a whole lot of tags and sending them out to my friends.  This should be really easy, I told myself….well it is a bit harder than I had anticipated.  Being over critical of my own work and holding it up to a standard (with practice) I want to reach some day.  I’m getting there though and still plan on sending out a batch of tags to my friends before I have to go back to work 😦

 

Eat Chocolate #122006

Eat Chocolate #122006

 

Casting my thought to cards while the creative spirit is working, I took a whack at the Eat Chocolate stamp set using the die cuts and tags.

A little more thought and practice stamping and these items would be good for maybe a 3″ x 3″ note card or something.

After working on Reilee’s box for a couple hours yesterday then setting it aside to dry I wanted to see how other stamps could be used on these tags, thus the chocolate set.

Speaking of chocolate…I received a package from my daughter in Arizona.  The Easter Bunny arrived early at our house with Joe’s and my most favorite candies….Queen Anne Chocolate Covered Cherries.   Complete with Easter Grass 🙂

I had to call and thank her for her thoughtfulness.  That call lasted for nearly two hours.  AT&T Wireless has some problems but I love FREE and since my daughter is with AT&T also then we talk for a long time and I just love it.

 

With All My Heart #118623

With All My Heart #118623

 

After having played with the Window Sheets day before yesterday and having good results with it I had to try something else.

The Window Sheets cut very well with the dies.  I cut a piece from the sheet large enough to cover the die and ran it through my Big Shot.  Cuts wonderfully well.

With two of the same die cut I poked out the center of the “red” one and attached it with my ATG adhesive behind the “frame” to the window sheet die cut.  The red paper is on the outside with the acetate behind it.  Then I used VersaMark and black embossing powder (my stash) on the Thank You sentiment.  Then I layered the “frame” and acetate over the full die cut beneath.  Looks like I’m going to have to make a card now.

So off to work on Reilee’s box and then work at getting stuff used on my table so I can get it cleared off for the next round of projects 🙂

Attempting To Color

 

Window Sheets #114323

Window Sheets #114323

I haven’t colored in such a long time so those skills are really rusty.

After watching videos of so many others coloring I thought I’d give it a try on a small scale.  Tracy, of TracysTreasures, has been showing her skill and has enticed me to give it a try.

I stamped the All A Flutter (discontinued) stamp with Staz On to the Window Sheet three times.  The first time I twisted the stamp and smeared the image.  The second time was a bit better and the third was just right.  I was going for a “stained glass” effect by coloring with Stampin’ Write Markers on the back side of the window sheet.

This worked fairly well, although I don’t remember seeing a butterfly in these colors before 🙂  TIP:  Allow the markers to fully dry before turning the Window Sheet over.  Contact with the paper below, once turned over, allowed the wet marker to wick into the paper.  The bright colors became muted then later faded almost totally away.

Butterfly Tag

Butterfly Tag

I stamped the butterfly image with Basic Black ink on a piece of Whisper White card stock, allowed for quite a long drying time, then colored the image with Stampin’ Write Markers.

I cut the image out with the Wide Oval punch and then used the punch on the stamped image on the Window Sheet – the “Good Stamped” image.  I placed the punched Window Sheet piece over the card stock.

Using some special adhesive, meant only for translucent papers like Vellum, I attached the acetate to the card stock.  Then I mounted both pieces to one of the die cuts done day before yesterday.  A dot of gold gel ink (my stash) at the edges softened the starkness of the deep brown of the Chocolate Chip Textured card stock.

Fun and Fast Notes #113500

Fun and Fast Notes #113500

Thought I’d try my hand at coloring once again.  Light source shading is a bit tricky for me since I don’t know what I’m doing here.

The Fun and Fast Notes is a wood mount set I’ve had since I joined SU a few years ago.  The sentiment is pretty close to the bottom of the image.  I’ve taken the stamp off the block, I think I’ll cut the sentiment off and have it as a separate image so I don’t get the wonky bit using the Word Window Punch.

Maybe I’ll have to try the “masking technique” next time for the sentiment before I do totally whack it off the stamp.

Once again, I used the merchandise tag from the office supply store for the main image then mounted the sentiment to one of the die cut tags.

Joe has come to the “Bockenstette Hotel” for the night.  He arrived at about 2:30 yesterday afternoon so I spent the remainder of the day with him.  He’ll be leaving in a couple hours to make his delivery by Friday to Greensboro, North Carolina.

After he has gone I’m going to work on Reilee’s wooden box.  While the glue is drying I’ll play some more with the tags and flower die cuts.

Tags And More Tags

 

Taped up

Taped up

 

First, the “Trash Can Chronicles”…it is still hanging from the side of my table.  Slapped that piece of metal tape on it yesterday mid morning and it was still hanging there this morning.  End of that saga….until I have to peel the tape off to dump the basket after I’ve missed the bag insert several times.  Oh well, that is something to be worried about much later and not now. :o)

Time is ticking away.  There are only three days left in this month.  Can you believe it?  That also means there are only three days left to the Sale-A-Bration opportunity.

Yesterday, I had one of those days that was not conducive in getting things done.  My mind would not stay on any one thing for very long and everything I did to poor Reilee’s wooden box had to be taken off again.  My fingers weren’t working right and my heart was just not in it.  The time for my leaving for back out on the road is fast approaching and there is a lot of things yet to do.

When I have days like this, depression niggling at the corners of my brain, I do some “rogue experimenting”.  Kind of like guerrilla warfare on my thoughts and feelings.  Days like this I have to attack the “Whining” and annihilate it.

Who doesn’t love the look of Tim Holtz tags?

Since I have a box full of these merchandise tags I figured it was time to get that box out and see what I could come up with.  A “love” stamp from the Tiny Tags stamp set was used on the right hand tag.  The other two images are from the Artistic Etchings set.  The left tag is using the key and flourish like stamp from the Artistic Etchings set.  I’ve used Basic Black for the right tag and Creamy Caramel on the left tag.  The key has been embossed with non SU gold powder.  The backgrounds of both of these tags were sprayed or blobbed on with my “brew” of SU ink refill sprays.

I’ve had this set of four (4) Sizzlits from SU for quite a while.  This is the number 1 label die in the set.  I’ve used the Word Window Punch on the rectangular tag and the Modern Label Punch on the fancy die in the set.  I’m thinking of using rub-ons to give the tags their “names”.

The papers are really old and discontinued SU paper that I’ve had in scraps.

This die in the set has a perforation around the inside if you want to use it as a frame.  I’ve used the Extra Large Oval Punch (the old black style is known as the “Wide Oval”) on another scrap piece of discontinued paper.  The die, itself, is cut from a piece of Chocolate Chip Textured Card Stock – another scrap piece I had.

I have a mini I’m working on and it is in desperate need of some pops of interest.

This is the third die in the set of four.  I’ve used it on another piece of discontinued paper scrap.

Using a glue pen (my stash) to the print and adding Dazzling Diamonds makes for a pretty spot of shine and texture.

This little die cut would be really cute with a button or small flower attached.

Using the white Gel Pen #105021, faux stitching lines have been added around the outer area of the Chocolate Chip Textured Card Stock scrap piece then an inset of another piece of discontinued scrap paper punched out with the Large Square Punch.  The orange bit at the top is a sticker from a discontinued scrapbook SU set.

The three flower punch has been discontinued.  Using more scraps of discontinued paper for the three flowers and the Extra Large Oval punch, a stamped image from Artistic Etchings stamp set and some Basic Rhinestones #119246 make this die cut look really good.

This one set of Sizzlit dies, along with your store of punches, can be a “multi-tasker” in your card making arsenal.  Use up your scraps of paper with these dies to create something fresh and new.  These die cuts are just the right size for mini albums also.

And last, but not least is a flower I’ve made.  Yes.  As you can see I did work on my “Glitter Phobia” and pressed on ahead to my “Flower Phobia”.

Layered flower

Using more of my scrap pieces of discontinued SU paper and a square gem from my stash this flower was created.

Stealing a technique I’ve seen on YouTube.  Wetting the pieces with my SU ink refill brews, squishing them and wadding them up then drying them with the heat tool and carefully opening each piece up and layering them together this flower was created.

By the end of the day I felt pretty darn good with my “rouge experiments”.

Mother’s Day Project Finished & Trash Follies

Long title for this one 🙂

Crayons and markers

Crayons and markers

Katie came over yesterday to work on her Mother’s Day project more.  She brought her store of crayons and markers to do the background work.

Quite a few of the markers had dried up and the crayons weren’t putting down as much color as she had wanted.

She had a pen with some blue/aqua ink that she tried out and seemed to work fairly well.

During her background working she and I discussed how these were going to be finally displayed.  Hang on the wall or have a stand put on the back for sitting on  a shelf.

Acrylic paint

More acrylic paint

I watched Katie struggle with her background work using the crayons and markers.  Then I remembered I had a bin of acrylic paint bottles.

She found a paint brush in her crayon stash so she was thrilled that the work was going faster.  I had to hunt around for one of my finer paint brushes so she could get around the hearts and under the flowers with the paint.  She found using the smaller brush more to her liking and used that for most of the painting.

Questions arose about paint “What color do you get if you mix….” and she did a small bit of experimenting to get her questions answered.

Ribbon selection

Ribbon selection

It was finally decided that her works of art would be hung from the walls.

Choices, so many choices.  She and I went into my room and examined my store of ribbon.  She chose several colors.

Listening to her as she held a ribbon to her creation was very enlightening.  This girl will be one of those that can see the different hues in a color.  She put a length of ribbon next to her piece of art and then went on to say things like…”This blue is not the right kind of blue, it needs a bit more green in it to work here.”

My brain is going “What?!”

The artist and her work

The artist and her work

So, here is the completed art work and the exceptional artist 🙂

I really love how these came out.  I think Katie is also.

She went back home to get some wrapping paper.  I had a “pizza box” left over from my Club Scrap days that I put her treasures in and wrapped them in tissue paper.  Just as we were about to wrap them Katie remembered that photos needed to be added first.  So we didn’t wrap the box.  At least they are secure from prying eyes for now.

And just in case you are wondering about the white powder on my counter top.  I have a small problem with tiny black ants.  I’ve found that Borax is the best for chasing those buggers away and keeping them away.  I got a little over zealous with the “sprinkling” and will have to tame that a bit but at least I don’t have little black ants running all over my counter tops and down into the dishwasher any longer.

Recipe Box

Recipe Box

The long time girlfriend of our youngest son had a birthday earlier this month.  I’m so behind in my gift creating that it is no longer funny.

I found this box at Michaels for a couple dollars and liked the imagery so much that I really didn’t want to do much with it.  Krasi likes to cook and has aspirations of going to Culinary school.  I had to do a bit of something or it wouldn’t be from me.

Her favorite color is red so I put some ribbon along the top edge to reflect that.  I dug through my flower stash and found some that were “almost” red.  I added one of my newly created pins and added it behind the flower.  The glass beads are red anyway.  I added some small rhinestones to the top of the coffee cup to simulate steam rising.  Looks more like the fizzy from a soda but what the heck.

Recipe cards

Recipe cards

These recipe cards were a buck a pack.  Several of the recipe card imagery was on other boxes but I didn’t like the other boxes as much as I liked this one.

I do like the funny sayings on the cards.  A person can get just plain old index cards but Krasi is not just any “plain old” type of person 🙂

So now just a bit of pressure of the birthday gift mess is off.   My poor granddaughter, Reilee, had her birthday in the early weeks of February.  I had a box nearly finished until I over did it with buttons and now I have to make her another box, which is in the stages of paper adhering and paint application.

Trash bin

Trash bin

On to the “Trash Bin Chronicles” 😦

As you can see, it fell off.  This was yesterday morning.

Velcro foibles

Only one of the velcro bits was still attached to the ribbon.  The rest are still attached to its mate under the table.

I think there is more thought to put into this project than I had first conjured up.

Sew them on

Maybe sewing them on to the ribbon will keep them on and keep them stuck where they are placed.

That adhesive on the back of the velcro is some sticky stuff.  I had to clean my needle with alcohol after the final stitching was done to get that sticky stuff off of my fingers and the needle.

Still affixed under the table

On the floor once more

On the floor once more

As you can see, the velcro mates are still attached to the underside of my table.

A conversation with Joe this morning on the phone answered my questions of why this wasn’t working.  Overnight, according to Joe, the “fingers” let go which causes the velcro to fail.

When I went to my room this morning to see if my sewing fixed the problem and I found the bin on the floor once more.  I guess I’ll have to attach the velcro dots to the back side of the ribbon and move the mates to the top of my table or to the side edge.  According to Joe, the velcro fastener needs to “pull” at itself in order to work right.

So….back to the drawing board.  Maybe I’ll just put a bunch of tape across the two straps under my table and see if that works.

Hanging Trash Receptacle

Hanging trash receptacle

Hanging trash receptacle

It is still there, hanging on.  When I checked it this morning I was pleasantly surprised to see it still there and not having dropped to the floor.

The wonders of Velcro and their super adhesive 🙂

I have a brown paper grocery bag with handles that I use for the trash in my room.  Boy I make a lot of trash.  Guess you could say that “I’m just a trashy person” 🙂

I think I may  have to become quite a lot more diligent in my habits than I have been.  I already have several boxes chock full of the cardboard packaging from glue bottles, small tools, and other things.  When I get a new item that has the cardboard backer I just chuck it in the trash now.

Tracy of “TracysTreasures24” on YouTube has a video that she shows stamping on a piece of the clear plastic packaging as an acetate like embellishment.  So, when I remember (I’m getting addled), I take the packaging out of the trash.

My biggest pet peeve is having tiny bits of paper scraps, scooping them off my work surface and trying to get to the trash bag before I lose them on the floor.  After a day or two of crafting I have a confetti strewn carpet.  Now why, I wonder, do the majority of those tiny bits get under my table so far that I have to get on my hands and knees and crawl UNDER the table to get them?  I can get down there and pick those small pieces up…..the hard part is getting myself hauled back upright.  One hand on the table top for leverage, the other hand balled into a fist to keep the bits from escaping and using the chair to hoist myself up.  Sometimes I miss the chair and the confetti flies all over the place.

Under table top receptacle

Under table top receptacle

My laziness, and lack of desire to get down on my hands and knees, has spurred the idea for a closer trash bin.  Of all the stuff I have in my room, surely, there has to be something I can use.

Maureen left a comment with her ideas.  “And that bag idea sounds good. Is there any way you could find a lightweight cardboard box that you could decorate and velcro to the side of your desk. That way, the paper bag could be the liner.

Casting ideas around in my brain, getting closer to the solution with Maureen’s suggestions, the next hurdle was how to build the box.  AHA!!  I remembered watching Tracy make a video of using some metal tape, found at home improvement centers, to make a tag.  That stuff should work good.  It is, after all, used to seal the piping of duct work in homes to keep the hot or cold air in the tubing to travel where it is supposed to go.  If that tape can withstand the hot air all winter long and the cold air in the summer then it should be ideal in holding cardboard together.

I totally forgot about the foam core board I have had for quite a long time until I drug it out for Katie’s project.  That would work excellent!

I don’t do a “practice run” when I’m going to share my ideas.  I video the whole creative journey.  If it turns out good the first time then excellent.  If it fails then I’ve learned where things need to be changed and why.

My way of learning something is to actually see it in progress, not just be shown the finished product and then told how to go about making it.  I love YouTube because of this.

Here’s my video of the PROTOTYPE and the problems I ran into because of my not fully formed idea.  The changes I made are explained at the end.

Now my next challenge….REMEMBER that I have made the trash receptacle and use it 🙂

A Top Secret Project In The Works

My neighbor’s nine year old daughter came to my door yesterday morning and asked if I had an hour or two for her.  She has purchased some foam frames from the Dollar Store when her Mom took them a couple days ago.  The frames will hold pictures of her older brother and sister, plus she and her younger sister.  This is to be a Mother’s Day present and there is no where in her home she can freely create without a ton of questions or have the secret outed.

Poor Katie was going to have to resort to going to the play ground to have privacy 😦  All of her crafting supplies were sitting on their back porch in hopes of finding a place to make her gift.  “Get your stuff and come on in” was what I told her.

The first 15 to 20 minutes were spent in digging out what her idea was and how she wanted the frames done.  Originally it was to have four separate frames.  I have some foam core that has been stashed away in my room for a year or two.  This would be an excellent stiff backer board for her frames.  I cut out four 5″ x 5″ squares for her.  She fiddled with the placement foam hearts on the foam core for a bit and she decided she wanted them two and two so I cut more foam core for her.  Heck, I do the same thing with paper…change my mind frequently.

Katie

Katie

Hugh, if you are reading this….this is TOP SECRET 🙂

Miss Katie is fearless in her crafting skills.  I gave her a craft knife and showed her how to cut the foam core.

Poor Sweetie had the blade facing upward and I had to stop her and have her turn it right way around.  Then she went after the foam core and before I could stop her she had zipped right down the ruler.  Wonky cut but nothing that couldn’t be fixed.  I had to caution her about going a little slower the next time.  Which she did.

The time spent with Katie took me back to the days when our children were little like her and I had them gathered around the table creating gingerbread houses, coloring Easter eggs, and all manner of other crafty things.  Listening to her as she spoke of her design ideas and thinking about how best I could help her was so refreshing to me.

Glitter glue and flowers

Glitter glue and flowers

I think I need to take a lesson from Katie and her pure joy in glitter glue and flowers.  Just get after it and have fun 🙂

She brought over a couple stencils to add her own embellishment style to the project.  It was a bit of a challenge to get her to wait until today and let the glue dry before she tried to tackle any more stencil and glitter embellishing.  Especially with the zest she displays in squeezing the tube for maximum glitter.

It was so much fun for me to listen to her chatter as she created her works of art from her sweet heart.  I was let in on some other items she had purchased for her Mom at the Dollar store for 25 cents.  She followed me to  my craft room and exclaimed over my paper stash.  At one point in her creating she popped up with “I bet you’ve spent $1,000 at Michaels for all that paper”.  And I thought my secret was safe.

Once in a while Katie and her sister will be over here with me when their Mom needs a spur of the moment babysitter for a couple hours.  Her younger sister pops in from time to time and runs over to my cuckoo clock and stands there, head cocked back waiting for the little bird to come out and bob up and down as it cuckoos.  Elora, Katie’s little sister, knows that I have chocolate candies here for my little business card pass out items.

To be trusted enough by a wee one to breeze in and blow back out from time to time, ever hopeful that this will be the time of the cuckoo calls, gladdens my  heart.  To be given the honor of opening my door to creativity and a safe place for secret gift making….well there is no higher honor in my book.

I can see my table top

I can see my table top

My table is just about cleared off.  Enough that I can at least see the majority of it.

In the orange rectangle, on the photo at left, I have most of the new stamps ready.  They were left to let the 2-Way glue dry on them and should be done by now.

The small orange oval to the bottom left…that is a pile of wooden blocks I’ve set aside (didn’t mount the new stamps to them).  I have a project in mind but will take Joe’s considerable wood working skills to bring my idea to a reality 🙂  He’ll be back home Monday night from his travels and is thinking about taking Tuesday off.  If he does stay home on Tuesday…well I’ll put him to work 🙂

 

Steal of a Deal

 

As Is Find

As Is Find

 

At Michaels last week, as I wandered the store, I had a peek in the “AS IS” bin at my store.

Usually there is an assortment of stuff that doesn’t interest me but this time I had to snatch this Cropadile out of the bin and not think twice about it.

I still can’t believe I got it for $8.75!!  I was told the woman that purchased it had brought it back (reason unknown).  The store manager and other people tried it out and checked it over to see what was wrong with it and there didn’t seem to be a problem.

I can’t believe they didn’t put it back up with the other Cropadiles and sell it at full price, as all other stores do.  Heck, I’m not going to question the reason too much.  I’m just very grateful that it now resides at my house….although

 

Total mess in my room

Total mess in my room

 

I may not be able to find it 😦 when I need it.

I’ve got four projects going right now.  Well, more like three since I’ve completed the request by Maureen for a video on totally stripping the rubber stamp from a block.

If you watch the videos I did….I’m not doing that any time soon.  Just stripping those three stamps was more than enough for me to decide that I’m WAY too lazy to take on that project.

The paper bag in the foreground is an experiment in progress.  When I used to sew I had a paper bag taped to the edge of the table beneath the head of my Serger.  All the tails would be snipped off and put in the bag.  Along with small bits of fabric and the strings from the regular seam sewing I did.

I’m trying to figure out a way to “Decorate” the paper bag and hang it from the table edge to have a recepticle for the never ending small pieces of trash I accumulate during a project.  Mostly the backs of Dimensionals or the red strips from Sticky Tape.  The gritty left behind particles of embossing powder or glitter that is too small to get scooped back in the containers.

I’ve started a mini album using the left overs of file folders from the Greeting Card Holder that needs to be finished.  The pieces are in various stages of working on tags, pockets, and embellishments.

And I have a pile of charms that I’m trying to figure out how to make, along with a bunch of corsage pins that I’m finding really difficult to do, and quite frankly it is getting depressing.  My confidence in jewelry making is somewhere just below street level and near the gutter where these items are concerned.

The big bag of Tootsie Rolls was for a give away project but those round guys don’t stick well inside little folders.  I think I may have to go to my local Budget Box and Bag store and see if they have some small zip plastic bags.  I can make a topper for the bag and place a few of the Tootsie Rolls inside the bag.  At least if I give them to someone else I will be less inclined to reach inside the bag and take a few for myself.  Right now that seems to be my daily answer to the bag.  Grab four or five and don’t look back.

Today will be a day of sorting in my room.  Clarity will come when I have a clean and open table to work on.  And I have to get the rest of the stamps I ordered from Stampin’ Up! put away…..but then again I’ve seen some of the coloring with Copics and Stampin’ Write Markers being done by Tracy of Tracys Treasures – there is a link to her blog on the right under Blogs of My Friends.  So many distractions….
