Lisa’s Look at Tim’s Tag for March 2016


I finally found time to work on my version of Tim’s Tag for March. I love how it turned out.


I started by covering the tag with Tim’s Tissue Paper and trimming it to size.


Then, I covered the tag with pieces of lace. I attached them with Dina Wakley Media Gel Medium.


Next, I added color with Gelatos.  I would have liked to try the Distress Crayons, but haven’t gotten them yet.


Then I cut Tattered Florals from a piece of recycled cardboard cut to tag size.


Now I had fun removing the top layer of the cardboard, exposing the ridges inside. I then added Gathered Twigs Distress Ink, Moved Lawn and Tarnished Brass Distress Paint.


Then I attached it to the tag over the lace. The back of the cardboard was white, so I colored one of the flowers and attached it to the corner of the tag.


I finished it off by stamping a sentiment on another piece of a tag. Last I added some leaf vine ribbon.

Holidays Layouts

Easter Egg Hunt Layout


Hello everyone. Today I am sharing an Easter layout using CutCardStock Curious Metallics. My layouts are usually done as two 8.5″ x 11″ pages. When I started the scrapbook for my daughter this was the size available. (As you can see by the date, I am a little behind.)


I started with 2 sheets of Curious Metallics in Cryogen White. I wanted to to add a splash of color, so I used the Tim Holtz Distress Marker Spritzer and Distress Markers.

Next, I used We R Memory Keepers Hello Darlings 6×6 Paper for some background mats. I matted the larger picture with Curious Metallic in Violette and pink from the Core’dinations Adhesive Back Card Stock in Carnival.

I used my Sizzix eClips 2 to cut the title for my page from the Core’dinations Adhesive Back Card Stock. You can see how detailed I was able to cut the words.


The Core’dinations Adhesive Back Card Stock made it easy to apply the words to the page.

Then I added several Easter Eggs cut from Curious Metallics (Violette, Mandarin, and Lime) and Core’dinations Adhesive Back Card Stock. I matted some smaller pictures on the eggs. The large egg is hiding my journaling.

Cards Tutorials

First Post with the CutCardStock Design Team

Hello everyone, this is my first post for the CutCardStock Design Team. I am excited to be a part of the team. I don’t know about you, but I am ready for spring, so I designed a card for spring.

I began with 5″ x 7″ cardbase made with the Esse Pearl Smooth Latte. I then inked the card front with blue and green Distress Inks to create grass and sky. I love how the shimmer shows through the ink.

Next, I used Galvanized Curious Metallic cardstock to cut the {die}signer Pocket Die and the Watering Can Die Set from A Jillian Vance Design.  I also inked all the edges.

Before attaching the watering can I threaded fishing line through holes in the spout to create the water. At the ends of the fishing line, I attached a clear bead with glue. Then, I attached the watering can to the card. (If you don’t see the water on the card above, I added it after attaching everything to the card, but it would be much easier to attach add it first.)





Using the Watering Can Die, I cut tulips from Pop Tones Cotton Candy, Grape Jelly, and Lemon Drop and the stems from Gumdrop Green. I cut extra flowers and fussy cut the center part out.  I inked all the edges of the pieces for added dimension.


Next, I added the flowers to the front. I used Double Sided Foam Adhesive Squares to attach the center petals.  I also added 3 flowers to the inside of the card.

To finish off the card I stamped Hello Spring and added a gift card to the pocket.
