everything goes!

Hello friends!
The Inspiration Journal challenge this month is 'everything goes' you're free to do whatever you like!

I recently got the Retro Halloween Framelits set and the block die. Yeah, I'm way late to the game with these, but, there is SO much I NEED and it takes time to acquire everything! 
I had fun with this after I got in the swing of making it, I quite like the skeleton witch holding the skull garland, looks like she's holding skull paper dolls! haha

 I've had the rosette on my desk in the catchall dish forever, I finally had the chance to use it!
I love using Enamel Accents for dimensional eyeballs! 
You just squeeze a drop of white onto the eye and then squeeze a drop of black on top of the white, it just forms perfectly. I usually let it dry overnight before I handle it
Supplies: stamps - retro halloween framelits. paper - black and white cardstock, lost and found paper stack. ink - archival jet black, terra cotta and pitch black alcohol inks, blending solution. distress ink in vintage photo. acces. - black and white enamel accents, wooden skewer, foil tape sheets, elements tissue tape, martha stewart carnelian glitter, cereal box cardboard. tools - retro halloween framelits, vintage lace, bats and crossbones garland, mini rosette and block dies, hot glue gun, foam squares

Can you believe it's almost August?
The summer is flying by too fast!
School is about to start, this weekend is a tax free weekend on school clothes and supplies, which is good.

faith is the bird

 Hello friends!
The Inspiration Journal challenge this month is summer fun, create a summer themed project.
I decided to make a bird themed journal page, bird watching is summer fun, right?

 I got the quote from Pinterest, as usual.
I can't believe I had the nerve to stamp it directly on the page! I did real well until I got to the a, and, it's kinda upside down lol. It could have been worse, believe me!

 I got one of Tim Holtzs worn covers, I wanted to make a small journal out of it and make single pages to add to it. 
 It was kinda unnerving punching hole in my page!
 When I closed it this happened.
I think I need to get the bigger worn cover journal and use this one for tags.

Supplies: stamps - artful flight, su! rough edges alpha, date stamp. paper - white cardstock, scrap pattern paper. ink - archival jet black, coffee and forget-me-not, versamark. acces. - white and gold embossing powder, white embossing paste, distress stain in tumbled glass, gold eyelet, composition worn covers, ring binder, label letters glossy accents. tools - doily and bubble stencils, corner punch, handheld circle punch, sizzix borders die, tracing wheel, crop-a-dile, heat tool.
Here's a project I did not long ago.
Finding the plates and cups at flea markets is half the fun!
 Wouldn't these make perfect gifts filled with cookies or cupcakes?
Get started on your challenge project, you have until the end of July to upload it at Inspiration Journal.
You can find the goods at Inspiration Emporium, use my discount code ieirisgarden for a discount on your purchase!
Have a great day!

celebrate father's day

I made a card to go with the paperweight I made last week.
It's for the celebrate challenge going on at the Inspiration Journal.
The papers I used are from the Kraft Resist paper stash, 8x8 collage paper stash and a piece of scrap black cardstock. I cut the clock, card,  frame, frame background and diamond strips from the 8x8 collage paper. The clock hand is a game spinner.  
I stamped the frame in VersaMark ink, sprinkled on some pumice stone Distress embossing powder and heat set it with my heat tool. I die cut the frame with the Sizzix Framed Sihoulettes frame die and distressed the edges with Distress vintage photo ink. The guys head was cut with the die from that set.
The diamond strips were cut with the Sizzix Borders dies and I put 3 mini fasteners in the bottom strip for a little interest.

Here's the link to the paperweight.
That's it, now head on over to the Inspiration Journal and upload your celebration creation for a chance to win some Inspiration Emporium $$$, you have until the end of the month so hurry!
Don't forget to use my coupon code ieirisgarden at checkout for your discount!
Have a great day!
