12 tags of 2014-April

Another month! Seems like they go so fast. 

March was hard for us. We lost John's dad, Ray, on the 24th after being in the hospital for most of the month. He had celebrated his 82nd birthday just three days earlier. It's been a hard couple of weeks, but with the support of family and friends, we are getting through. 

Tim has a fabulous tag this month! I changed mine up a bit from his example. Marching to the beat of my own drummer, as it were. I used Sticky Back Canvas for my trellis instead of the grungepaper that Tim used. I like the softer look it gives. I still don't have his pinecone die, so I used my CTMH Artiste Cricut cartridge and cut the rose with it instead. I used the positive of Dina's new leaves stencils and some old dictionary pages, traced and cut out and used that for my leaves. 

RIP dad. You lived a rich, full life and will be missed.

12 tags of 2014-March

Where did February go? I know it's the shortest month of the year, but dang!

Oh well. Time for Tim's March Tag of The Month. This month, we are using a technique that we learned in Creative Chemistry 2 and is also in the brand spanking new Compendium of Curiosities III called Ink Smudging. It is a really simple technique and give a shadowy effect to your stamping.

I used Tim's Regal Findings stamp set with the tree and Dina Wakley's brand new Scribbly Birds stamp set and sentiment. There is a tiny egg at the bottom that's pretty hard to see and it is a discontinued CTMH stamp set called Easter Eggs.

12 tags of 2014-February

Time once again for 12 tags of 2014. This month is all about hearts! While I followed Tim's guidelines, I took a slightly different turn.

Stenciled Day 4

Really sad to see this class come to an end today. I have learned so many new things. There was one thing I could not do today because I didn't have the proper tools, but it's ok. I still learned how to do it should I someday decide to get what I need to do the technique.

Stenciled Day 3

Have I mentioned how much I am loving this class?! I will truly be sad when it is over. But I will put to good use the many new techniques that I have learned. Here are my four cards for today.

Stenciled Day 2

Finally caught up with the second day of classes! Now I will be on the same day with the rest of the class. It's not too late for you to join in the fun! Click here to see what all the buzz is about!


I'm taking an online class again! Stenciled and it's not too late for YOU to come join the fun. Classes are archived so you won't miss a thing. AND! You have lifetime access to the class once you join, so you can always go back and refresh your memory in the future. I was a day late (and a dollar short) getting to the party, but I am SO glad I joined. Whoda thunk there were so many cool ways to use those stencils of yours. Of course, I can't give away any of the techniques, but I can post what I'll be doing. So here goes!
