Autumn ATC’s Creative Embellishments


Hello Again, Well more projects from Maggi Camp, and when you sit next to the famous Jen Snyder and see you fabulous cards she makes, no wonder one becomes inspired to try to make a set. Its always nice to try before you buy. Such enablers we are.

CE flip cards November

So Jen had this fun die cut card she shared with us all. Getting a tutorial from Jen is always an adventure. Just like our road trips, it’s never a good thing when Jen is behind the wheel and I am the navigator, but that might be a whole other post. lol

So back to the cards. I saw the design and said, I have the perfect chipboard that might work and perfect! I tried it out and the perfect fit. They were made for each other, destiny. After cutting the paper, really very minimal assembly required. It was more painting the Autumn ATC Coins and the Pumpkin Corner Set. Blending and shading.

The cool thing about these cards is you really cant mess them up. They work if your looking at them from the front or the back

If I didn’t add so many flowers to my stuff, these could easily get put in the post.

Well I am sure there will be adventures of the creative minds of Maggi camp. Thank you for stopping by today and enjoy the upcoming holidays.

Shaker Cards Buttons Galore and More

Boy did we have fun at Maggi’s. We all brought extra stuff so everyone got to experiment and play with new stuff, just waiting to enable each other to go shopping and spend more money. Well Jen brought all these shakers from Nicolle’s Creative Embellishments Store, anything you can think of it was there. Then the very Generous Buttons Galore and More Owner has pretty much anything and everything to fill the shakers. So without further ado, I am going to share 2 shakers I made. My first one was a trial,  me and my mixed media idea’s.  I have to figure out if it will work or not work. So I started with some texture. Adding texture hear and there, making sure not to get it between the layer. Then getting my paint on, painting to get the shaker card to where I like it. Jen did all the rest, I just had to pick the shaker contents that looked the best. With this card I used the Golden Opportunity from Buttons Galore and More.

Now with the maple leave, I thought of Adam and our Maple syrup we make. We sell and I plan on making some cards for anyone that wants to buy it for a Christmas Gift. This maple shaker worked great, I filled this one with the Fall Foliage, just perfect! I cant wait to give these away!

Creative Embellishments November Challenge Studio Light Tags


Where has the year gone, my goodness before we know it Christmas will be here. So lets not rush it and lets get on with the November Challenge. Another project made on the girls weekend, so another short video to go along with it.

CE November Challenge 3

I started with the picking the paper, and I love this paper so much that I actually made two large tags, I did a little background work with the snowflake stencil and paste, before figuring out the focal points with the Autumn Frames Sets and Autumn ATC’s, then it was a matter of adding the twist of adding wood to the flower clusters. I added the Happy Thanksgiving Title to each of the tags. Then I just finished off the tags with a few subtle details of flat back pearls and micro beads.

Here is the inspirational photo for the challenge.


Here is the short video followed by some close-ups of each of the tags.

Andy SkinnerThe Art Room Base Kit

As we fast approach the Halloween Season, I wanted to do a ghoulish project with Andy’s pastes and paints. I must admit I absolutely love the texture this Starta Paste makes. I decided on the Art Box from Tando Creative. I made a little video of the creative process and evolution of how this project came to be.

Andy Skinner Tomb.jpg Here is the short video

As the project started to come together, I added more and more details. I was going to add the tombstone, but in the end, after adding the door to the tomb. I ended up just using it in the background. But it still added to the effect of the project. Andy Skinner Tomb 5

I used the tags embellishments kit to add a tomb marker, Using the resist paste to add to the old feeling of the project.

Using a resin skull, I aged with mixing the Quinn Gold and the Raw Umber in a “Dirty Wash”.

I hope you enjoy the project and Thank you all and have a great day!!!!

Halloween ATC Creative Embellishments


Hello all, as some of you know I recently had a scrappy girls weekend away at our good friend and former DT member Maggi’s house. I would have to say I was very creative. I did get a number of projects done over the weekend and will be sharing them here over the next couple of months. My first project is a set of fun Halloween themed ATC’s I made with the ATC tags.

CE Halloween ATC

I did make a few videos while I was away, these will be short, I only had so much space to make the videos, I managed to get a little of a few of the the projects for you.

CE Halloween ATC 1

I started out with just adhearing the paper to the ATC’s, and some subtle stamping with the distress chevrons stamp. After that I added a stencil and then I used the Twinkle Star stencil to add to the starry night feel of the ATC‘s. Nicolle has so much fun Halloween chipboards in the store that these just came together. I did a fair number of heat embossing this weekend and used some black on the Bats Set.

I was limited on what I could bring on the plane and thank god Maggi has just what I needed to finish off the Distress Chevron Boarder. I used some spray to paint the colour on the chipboard.

CE Halloween ATC 4

After assembling the tags with just a small focal point on each of the ATC’s I add a little shimmer with some wax on the chipboard and the ATC’s background.

CE Halloween ATC 6

I hope you enjoy this fun little project. Thank you for stopping by and Happy Halloween to you all.

Shabby Chic Altered Tags made for Andy Skinner


Hello all I would love to share a set of alter shabby tags made for Andy Skinner with some of his new product from Creative Expressions. Not something so bright and bold you would expect to see, but I love how they turned out and evolved. And one of my new favourites is the Strata Paste. The texture and dimension is just lovely. Shabby Tags 1

I made a quick video of the creative process. I hope you enjoy.

I started with some Tando Tags as the base, using a knife I distress the edges, I actually do this with all the pieces on both tags. After some coating on the tags, I get down to the texture. Shabby Tags 4 Using various mediums, I coat the tag with the starta paste, crackle and some resist paste on the edges. After various layers of paint, I get the texture that I love!

Here are a few more close of the tags. Enjoy!

Ciao Bella Pumpkin Album

Hello all, as the seasons change and the leaves begin to dance, I would like to share a fall inspired Mini Album Made for Ciao Bella Paper with the beautiful Sound of Autumn Collection. So many beautiful elements on the paper that really not much else is needed to make it any more beautiful.

Pumpkin Album HJT


Here is a short little walk through video of the mini album.


Here are some close-ups. I used the Pumpkin Album from Creative Embellishment and fuzzy cut elements from the A4 collection. A cute little album to lay out this time of year to get you in the festive mood for pumpkin spice and warm fresh apple pie right out of the oven.

Retirement CBP Card and Tag

Hello everyone, Thank you for stopping by today. I would love to share with you a card and tag set I made for a friend at work who is retiring after 25 years in the ER. Roxy is a craft gal herself and very artistic in so many ways. I made these thinking of her creativity.

CBP Follow your Dreams HJT.jpg

These were made with the beautiful collection Le Repubbliche Marinare Collection from Ciao Bella Paper. The background details on the paper are amazing and some days I just dread covering up such pretties, but I also try and incorporated the details of the papers in the overall piece. I enjoy all the little details the papers have to offer. I have been told by some that the papers are unrecognizable when I get done with them, but then again its art and it is how it is interpreted by each individual. To each their own right? These cards are one of my favourites.

CBP Follow your Dreams 6 HJT

I am fascinated with the history behind the title of these pages which just adds to the project.

Here is the video of how these came together.

I like to give options, that is also one reason I usually make two, usually different and if I don’t like the one, I will make the other better.

Here are a few close-ups.

Amber Dreams Creative Embellishments


Hello all, Welcome back.

Today I am sharing a layout with lots of texture and feel. I love incorporating the photos into the the page itself. This was from our trip to Omaha Nebraska. We took a weekend trip down there, meet up with our friends from Colorado and hung out in Old Town Omaha. This part of the city has so much character and uniqueness.

CE Amber Moon 6.jpg

Here is a short video of the creative process.


Using the paper to help give that vintage effect. I only mixed some texture paste with some modeling paste together. I spread it through the Distress Brick Stencil and put the heat gun to it. I applied a thick layer and new it was going to take some time to dry.

CE Amber Moon

I layered the paper and used the distress brick stamp to add texture to the other side of the paper.

I originally started with the grunge corner chipboard but didn’t like the feel of it. I  changed it to the acorn branch. I love how sturdy the chipboard is, it take colours and sprays so well. I used some spray to add colour both the branch and the acorn cluster.


After adding a few clusters in the acorn branch, I used some smaller paper embellishments to fill in the smaller holes on the page until I think it looks good.

Thank you for stopping by and happy crafting!!!
