The Time of Your Life – dt layout for Creative Embellishments

It’s Thursday, so I’m up on the Creative Embellishments blog! 😀 This week, for my project I used the Film Strip Picture Frames and the Movie Reel from the “Movie Night” collection. I was also inspired by several challenges, so I combined them to create my project.

For the Flying Unicorn Make a Mess and Clean it Up challenge, you create a super messy mixed media background, then use it as the base of your page. For the Scrap the Boys challenge, you create a page that involves and Outdoor Activity. Then for the Scrap & Music challenge, you use the sketch provided and lyrics from the song Time of Your Life by Green Day for your title. Here’s what I came up with for this combination of challenges:


Creative Embellishments Film Strip Picture Frames
Creative Embellishments Movie Reel chipboard piece
Lily Bee papers
Kaisercraft, TCW and Prima masks
Unity Stamps
Stazon Ink
Acrylic paint
Signo white pen
Pitt artist pens
Lily Bee alpha stickers
Scenic Route Alphas
Thickers alphas
TH dies
TH and Prima gears
TH tickets
Prima clip
Prima Junkyard findings



Tim Holtz 12 tags of 2013 – May

After taking a long break from crafting I’m now getting myself ready to re-enter the craft world, so to get my feet wet I figured a tag would be the best way to go. 🙂 When I think about tags, I can’t help but also think about Tim Holtz and his fabulously grungy, vintagy (is that even a word? lol), technique-filled creations, so I stopped by his blog for inspiration.

Each month, he shares a new tag, posts a tutorial on how he created it and challenges readers/followers to link up their creations inspired by that month’s tag. You can follow along as loosely or as closely to his design as you’d like. 😀

Here’s what I came up with:


#8 tag
Fancy Pants rubons
Distress stains
Distress ink
Unity Stamps
Staz On ink
Tim Holtz Idea-ology Film Strip Ribbon
TH Idea-ology Muse Token
TH Idea-ology Word Band
TH Idea-ology Trimmings
G45 brad


Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots
Terrifically Tacky Tape
