For the first tag I used the silver distress stain and Evergreen Bough reinker for the background. The reindeer was cut from Tim Holtz Reindeer Flight die and then embossed using white embossing powder. I then stamped Tim Holtz snowflake stamp at top with Evergreen Bough and added some tissue tape and letters cut from the Vintage Market die.

I made the following card and Light block fir my cousin's daughter who turns one this month. The card was made using the Cricut Wild Card Cart with My Mind's Eye paper. For the candle I used gold Stickles. I love how the card turned out.

Here is my take on the April's tag. I tried making the blue bird with distress inks that Tim did but for some reason I couldn't get the blue distress ink to be as bright as his so I just cut the bird out of printed paper. I used Tim Holtz Mini Bird, Branch, and Tag and Bookplates dies, Tim Holtz Curiosity definition stamp, along with a Cuttlebug border embossing folder, and distress inks.

I made these atcs for the Grungy Monday Challenge using Tim Holtz's technique for alcohol ink plaid background. When I first seen this technique I thought it looked pretty cool but when I went to try it myself I just couldn't get the plaid to turn out as good as he does it. I used Tim Holtz and Cherry Pie Stamps for these. Sorry the pics aren't the greatest, the glossy cardstock made it difficult to get a clear pic without too much glare.

I am going to try nad upload more of my scrapbook layouts so I thought I would start with the one I made recently. This is a picture of my niece and for the layout I used a sketch found at http://sketchsavvy.blogspot.com/2012/03/sketch-73-12-x12.html
This sketch was made for a 12x12 page but I mostly make 8x8 so I sized down the sketch to fit mine.
The paper I used is from My Mind's Eye and I used 3 Tim Holtz Dies: Mini Rosette, Vintage Market Alphabet, and Vintage lace. I cut the vintage lace strip from white cardstock and using a mini mister filled with Spun Sugar Distress ink, I sprayed the die cut. I love how this turned out and wish my camera would pick up the pretty pinks and glitter.

I made this for the Grungy Monday challenge at http://studiol3.blogspot.com/2012/03/grungy-monday-38.html using Tim Holtz's technique found here http://timholtz.typepad.com/my_weblog/2007/12/its-day-2-of-12.html Not sure if I like how this turned out or not but at least I gave it a try.

For the background I took printed paper from the DCWV Mariposa stack and using the Tim Holtz flourish mask and blending tool I colored over the mask with Peeled Paint and Shabby Shutters Distress inks. I just painted the butterflies black with acrylic paint and then did the mosaic with paper from K&CO Que Sera Sera paper. I didn't have glossy accents so I used the Crackle Accents over the mosaic pieces. For the dangly charm, I took glass pearls and colored them with alcohol inks and attached them to a lobster claw clasp.

The first pair of earrings were made with vintage chandelier crystals.
Black and white bracelet I made to go with my necklace.
This is my first time making a necklace. It took a couple hours of making it with trial and error. I took small chain links and put them between clack and white beads and then finished it off using a vintage chandelier crystal.
