October Calendar Pages for the Collage Stuff 2017 Handmade Calendar Swap


I'm hosting a handmade calendar swap at the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group.  It's wrapping up, but I'm short the October pages.  I made them this weekend.  Many of the items used are from Tim Holtz - Materialize papers, mirror stars, Halloween tokens, Occasions small talk stickers, and Halloween ephemera.  The witch image is from Hidden Vintage Studios at Mischief Circus.  I used papers from other manufacturers as well.  The German scrap is available from Collage Stuff.  I had fun making these pages!  Boo!

2016 Christmas Cards

I have a lot of digital image kits from Mischief Circus, so this year I decided I would create my Christmas cards digitally.  I used a kit called "A Primitive Christmas" from Crow About Studio B.  Like my Christmas card says - "Be Merry!"  this Christmas season!

Decmber Artist Choice ATC Swap

The December swap at the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group is an artist choice ATC swap.  I created a background sheet using a vintage ledger page, acrylic paints and stencils.  I cut the sheet down to ATC size for each of the backgrounds.  I stamped the butterfly image on the same vintage ledger pages. Other items used include Asian character cards (available at Collage Stuff), Tim Holtz flashcards, Tim Holtz big chat stickers and jewels. Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

Christmas Tag Swap

At the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group, the November swap is a Christmas-themed tag swap.  I used number 8 tags.  The backgrounds are scrapbook papers, vintage ledger pages, and some gelli print scraps.  The Santa images are Victorian scrap available at Collage Stuff.  The song image is from Tumble Fish Studio at Mischief Circus.  The labels are from the "Tis the Season" collage sheet from Collage Stuff.  I added bling using the green jewels or Tim Holtz mirror stars.  The ribbons and charms are also available at Collage Stuff.  To finish off the tags, I glued a mica tile over each Santa image.  Thanks for stopping by to see my new tags!

Letter "A" ATC swap


At the Collage Stuff Yahoo Group, the October swap is a letter "A" ATC swap.  I used vintage text for the background.  I used acrylic paints to stencil the background.  The leaves were outlined with a white Pilot pen.  The stamp, Frida and phone image are all available on collage sheets at Collage Stuff.  I used a black German scrap border (Collage Stuff)  to finish the bottom of the ATC.  I glued down a thin mica tile over the Frida image.  I generated the letter "A" and the word "artist" on my PC.  The edges of the ATCs were finished with green paint.  Thanks for coming by to see these ATCs.
