Lucky Is A State Of Mind...

Hello friends!  I'm back today to share another project I made for the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Creativation booth.  I used a Flip Frame here, they really are so versatile.  You can hang pages from the rings provided or like me you could create a box and attach to the back of the frame to make your own little vignette.
 I started off by adding a little age patina to the finish of the frame by using Iced Spruce Distress Paint and Mushroom Alcohol Ink.
 This little guy here is all about luck.  He's got his lucky number 13, his lucky star, his lucky four leaf clover and his lucky quote chip.  I'd say he's feeling pretty confident.
This Quote Chip was originally one piece, but I needed to cut it into smaller pieces to fit the space in the Flip Frame.  I just used my Tim Holtz scissors, they did a great job even on the super thick chipboard.  Then I sanded the edges a bit to round them out with my sanding grip.
I added a little color to the Paper Doll before I attached the Botanical butterfly wings.  You could either use Distress Markers or Distress Ink Pad with a Q-Tip.  The colors I went with were Spiced Marmalade, Ripe Persimmons and Chipped Sapphire for his suit, vest and tie.  Nice subtle color...
lucky, lucky, lucky...
I used some Distress Paint to color the Typography number.  Antique Linen, Pumice Stone, Walnut Stain and Black Soot was just what it needed.
Then a little distressing to that cute little 4 leaf clover from the Treasures Adornment Charm set.  I used a little Iced Spruce Distress Paint, Mushroom Alcohol Ink, then drilled a hole in the bottom of the 3 and hung the clover charm.
I made a small box out of a scrap piece of paper stash then attached the "John Mothner-signage Collector Layers, so the boy would have something to set on.  To finish it off I tied some Jute string around the bottom of the Flip Frame.
I had so much fun creating this Flip Frame!
I hope you enjoyed todays project!  You can find the supplies I've used via the links below.  If you have any questions please let me know I love your comments, I truly appreciate each and everyone of them!  I hope you'll check back soon, I'll be sharing more Creativation projects.  As always thanks for stopping by and I'll see you next time!  xx

Society of Gents Baseboard Book...

Hello friends, I'm glad you've stopped by!  I'd like to share a project that I created for Tim Holtz's idea-ology booth at Creativation (formerly-CHA) 2017 this year.  I was so honored to be asked to make a few things for Tim.  If you check Tim's blog here you can see the list/links of incredibly talented designers that made up many of the projects for Tim's Idea-ology, Sizzix, Stampers Anonymous and Ranger booths.  Plus, Tim takes you on an awesome booth tour!  Many of the designers are starting to post some of their Creativation projects to their blogs, you don't want to miss it!
I used the new idea-ology Baseboards for my front and back cover of the mini book.  I really enjoyed using them, they're super sturdy, yet can still be altered.  I used a crop-a-dile to punch the holes in the front back covers, they are far too thick for a regular punch.
Lots of new idea-ology pieces were used to create this mini.  That little dog charm is just the cutest, he's in the new idea-ology treasures pack.
I just can not get enough of those paper dolls!  I'm dreaming up all sorts of fun projects with them...
I used the idea-ology binder punch to create the holes in all the remaining inside pages of the mini book, it worked perfectly.
I did a lots of distressing throughout the book to give it that vintage feel.
I'm so happy that Tim has given us so much vintage variety with all the new Design Tapes.  My planner is going to be so happy.  I want to use the new design tapes on EVERYTHING now.  They're so much fun to layer up, just using pieces here and there.




I used the new idea-ology 8x8 Etcetera Paper Stash for several of the inside pages
and accents…just like these cigar bands.
I'm gonna need those new clippings stickers in bulk...
I loved the touch of gold from the gilded accents.


Design Tape for days, I will definitely be using lots more for future projects.  They're all just so, so good.
I held the mini book together using 2 idea-ology mini book rings, they were just the right size for the job.
Thank you is not nearly enough, however…I would like to thank Tim and Paula for asking me to be a part of the team!  I hope you enjoyed todays project!  You can find the supplies I've used via the links below.  If you have any questions please let me know I love your comments, I truly appreciate each and everyone of them!  I hope you'll check back soon, I'll be sharing more Creativation projects.  As always thanks for stopping by and I'll see you next time!  xx
