Sunday Scrap page: Oh Boy.

Happy Sunday to you all!

Today I share with you a lay out I made about the boys
with Club Scrap "The Blues" papers. The green
is from my Club Scrap left over box.
I really love that sentiment that came with the kit
for it fits very well here.

The "Oh Boy" sentiment is a wooden stamp by
Limited Editions, that I stamped in blue and embossed 
with clear embossing powder.

The flowers and leaves are all stamps by
Michael Strong. They are stamped with
versamark ink and embossed with blue
and green embossing powder,
then cut out and with a brad fasten
to the background for the flower and
the leaves with foam tape.

Thank you for stopping by.

Have a creative day!

Club Scrap Artist Team:Minion inspiration

Are you addicted to the Minions?
Well, the Club Scrap Artist team is.

This month we were asked to make something
inspired by these pictures:

I love those litte figures and just had to go and see
the new movie. Did you see it? I LOVED it.
When you come out of the theatre you feel happy.

You did NOT see it?
Well here is the trailer:

Now what to make.....?
That was more of a problem. Ok, my inspiration came
from the colors and the warm island feeling.
In such a climate you need ice cream or a popsicle.
So I came up with this popsicle booklet.

I used this image as a template:
I took a strip of 6x12 inch CS Orient Express paper
and devided into 3 parts of 4 inch.

I traced the popsicle template at the beginning and the end
for cutting and left the middle straight to fold harmonica wize
every 1/2 inch.

The shaped paged are papers
from Orient Express, Wild Flower (brown) and
Bold Blooms (pink).

The pages are decorated with different Club Scrap stencils.
The chocolate topping is glazed with
glossy accent.
And for the wooden sticks I took 
a piece of grey board and painted it with 
tea die acrylic paint. Then I took a Tim Holtz
woodgrain stencil and vintage photo ink to
make it look likea wooden stick.
I used all kinds of sentiments from different
Club Scrap kits on the left page of the bookltet.
This one is from
Sprinkles um stamps 2012.
I went through all my photo's to 
find pictures for this book.
I also used a few stickers frommy stash.
This sentiment is from Club Scraps Desitations kit.

This sentiment is from 50's Kitchen kit.

Here you see the front and the back of the booklet.
I just ha to add at least one Minion.

Want to see what the others have come up with?
You find them here:

Thanks for looking!

Have a creative day!

Tim Holtz July Tag:Crazy Birds

This is the tag for July by Tim Holtz.
Wonderful inspiration for a 4th of July tag.
The ting is I did that for June:
You ca see all about this tag HERE.

So I did not want to make another one like
this, but using Tim's inspiration I wanted to work
with the Crazy Bird stamps and this is the result:

For all Tim's technique explanations you go HERE.
My tag started of with the musical tissue paper
glued to the tag.
I colored the tag with different kind of green.
Then I took the bird stamps and stamped them on 
watercolor paper and cut them to size.
I then noticed that these images where just too big
for the tag so I colored another piece of tag in the same manner.

With misical washi tape I enlarged the tag to the
right size. On topof the washi tape I colored with green
ink,but i noticed that the washi tape colored differently.

So on top of the washi tape I glued a piece of tissue
paper and colored again.This time it all looked the same.

Now I colored the birds, the ribbon
and added all to the tag for sewing
and the tag was finished.
The ribbon is colored with mowed lawn
and tumbled glass. I found I had this cute birdhouse
charm in my stash.
To keep a little to the theme I colored one bird
on top red and the one on the bottom blue.

The sentiment I found somewhere on the
internet and I typed it with the computer
and printed it on watercolor paper.
This label is a real one I still had and the 2 is 
grungeboard with silver paint and glossy accent on top.

Hope you like the result.
Those birds are such wonderful additions
to Tim's line and soon there will be more.
Take a look here and here. I need to start saving!!

Have a creative day!

Create with TLC Blog Hop: Wonderland

Welcome to another famous
blog hop
This is Wonderland!
Lots of freebies when you hop around.
I hope you came over here from 
and looked at her wonderful creation.
Now it is time for mine.
I was given this wonderful banner to share with you.
and you can save it to your computer 
with the right mouse click.

And here is the card I made:
As you see I changed the pink for red. Just because 
I think the Queen of  Hearts is more fitting in red and black.

I have added one of Alice's quotes to the 
the card, that I types up myself, but you
are free to grab that quote too!
But if you want to make up your own you can find
this free font called Bigelow Rules here.

Now see how I made this card.
I stared out with embossing this Michael Strong
closonné heart stamp on the front card panel. 
Then I coverd the image with a post-it note.

I took the Tim Holtz heart stencil and barn door red inkpad.
Fastened the stencil with washi tape to my table to be safe
and started to use the blending tool to color the background 
of the card. To get heart everywhere you have to move the
stencil, but it is easy to line themup.

This is how the background look after the stencil
was removed.

For coloring the heart I  took a piece of copy paer
and cut out the heart to cover the rest of the background.
Coloring it with the same ink,the panel is now ready
 to use for the card.
This is the finished card with the printed image
as wel. See how perfect digial and real stamping fit together.
For a little bling i aded a few sticky gemstones.

I  also like to decorate the inside of the card.
I used the stencilagain for some hearts.
I typed up some more Wonderland quotes
and added the queen image here.
The queen is a digital image that belongs to a set
you find in the Create with TLC shop for only $ 1.50
during this hop. It will be more later on.
You find the shop HERE.

So once you get started, you cannot stop
and here is another card. This time with the Queen on top.
For the background I jused a piece of paper from
a paper block. The sentiment is printed with the

And here is the inside of the card.
