So Lucky with Theodore and Ranger Ink


Happy Monday, crafty friends! It’s St. Patty’s week! And although I don’t do anything special to celebrate the holiday, I do always love a good excuse to do a little crafting and decorating. So today I thought I’d re-share my favorite St. Patrick’s Day project from last year, an altered home decor frame that I made for the Ranger Ink Project Page featuring the adorable Tim Holtz Theodore Colorize die set.


I’m always on the lookout for inexpensive home decor items, and this 5×7 thrift store desk frame was an awesome score at less than $2. It was a plain wooden frame to begin with, which didn’t match my project or decor, so step one was to give it a whitewash of Picket Fence Distress paint and a coating of Distress Crackle Texture Paste, followed by a sanding for that perfect shabby finish. I used Oxide-inked patterned paper for the background, and it, too, was doused with Crackle Paste and sanded. The finished product is so smooth and cracked and aged, and totally reminds me of Venetian plaster. I was obsessed with this technique last year.


Theodore is so darn cute! Definitely a favorite from the Colorize line. His lucky clover was made by piecing four small heart die cuts together, and I tucked the clover into his mouth for a bit of fun. I added some Wildflower die cut greens around him, and the sentiment is a mix of alphanumeric dies with an older script word set (which unfortunately is retired now).

The full tutorial for this project is still available on the Ranger Ink Project Page, if you’d like to learn more. Happy St. Patty’s Day, and thanks for stopping by!

Tim Holtz 2021 Sizzix Chapter 1- Carrot Bunny


Happy Monday, crafty friends! Hope you all had a lovely weekend, and enjoyed your Valentine’s Day and perhaps an extra day off today for President’s Day. Today I am excited to share my last project made for the Tim Holtz 2021 Sizzix Chapter 1 release. A fun and happy springtime card made with the new Carrot Bunny and Bubbling die sets.


This Carrot Bunny set is simply adorable! I love how the arms are notched so that you can tuck the carrots underneath… or in this case, one of my rabbits is holding the ribbon and one is popping out of his little hidey-hole. I added a trio of carrots to my arrangement, slipping them into the framework of the card. The Bubbling background is layered onto Tim Holtz Dapper patterned paper, and I used a craft knife to cut through one bubble as a window for the rabbit.


I used a Big Chat sticker and the new Alphanumeric Bold die set to create a spring sentiment banner for the inside of the card.


I had such fun making projects for the Chapter 1 release! There are just so many fabulous new sets to play with. Already looking forward to Chapter 2!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

2021 Tim Holtz Sizzix Chapter 1 Release- Funky Nature

Happy Monday, crafty friends! Hope you all had a lovely weekend! Today I am back with another project that I created for the 2021 Tim Holtz Sizzix Chapter 1 release. This is a domed gift-topper ornament that I made with the fabulous new Funky Nature set.


As you can see from the photos, it is difficult to capture this project without the glare. And that’s because of the awesome Sizzix Shaker Dome that I used to create this sweet nature assemblage. I knew Sizzix made tiny domes, but did you know that they also make several other sizes of domes as well, including this larger 3.5″ circle dome I used here?


I love this larger dome size for making package toppers, and how perfect are these for ornaments for your tree? I used the new Funky Nature die set to create an assortment of natural elements to tuck inside the dome. There are feathers and leaves and branches, and a trio of the most adorable speckled eggs. I absolutely love the detail on those eggs. The second layer has all those amazing and intricate cut outs that give it such life-like detail. Blows my mind what can be done these days with dies.


To create this topper, I used two circle die sets to create the scalloped outline and inner window, and layered the background with beautiful older Tim Holtz paper from the Wallflower paper pad. The nature elements were die cut from a mixture of kraft stock cardstock and watercolor paper that was inked in beautiful neutral colors of Distress ink. I also tucked in some real feathers, twigs, and moss, gathered along my woodland walks.


So pretty for spring! I’m SO ready!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Wishing you an awesome week ahead!

Valentine Love with Ranger Ink


Happy Wednesday, crafty friends! February is all about the love, and some of you may have noticed by now that I’ve been on quite the Valentine heart kick here on the blog lately. Today I have another heart to share with you..this time, a lovey-dovey Valentine card project that I made for the Ranger Ink Project Page featuring a fun mix of Distress products and Tim Holtz dies.


I wish you could see the texture on this die cut heart in real life, because the finish you get with the Distress glaze is just amazing. Love how you can see the layers of oxide ink colors underneath the Tattered Rose Distress Glaze I used on this sweet Heartbeat die cut. I layered the heart with lots of die cut leaves from the new Chapter 1 Brushstroke Flowers set, and added one contrasting pop of color with a flower from Bloom Colorize. I think this card has a definitely cottage rose, English garden type of vibe, and I quite like that.


I used Distress oxides and glaze and kraft stock cardstock to get a mix of textures here. The leaves were arranged at different levels with pop dots to create depth, and of course a big, crinkly bow on top adds even more. The background was made with a new stencil from Simon Hurley Creates, and I think that is my favorite part. Looks like garden lattice in a pretty country scene.

I’ve got the complete step-by-step tutorial for this card over on the Ranger Ink Project Page. And if you’re interested in adding to your Tim Holtz stash, there is a huge sale going on right now over at Sizzix.com! (Click on the highlighted link or on the photo below for a direct link).

Tim Holtz & Sizzix 2021 Chapter 1 Release- Harrison


Happy Monday, crafty friends, and happy February! Today I am excited to share another project that I made for the Tim Holtz 2021 Sizzix Chapter 1 release, shared recently on YouTube Live. This is Harrison, another adorable critter just added to the popular Colorize line.


You all know that I’m a sucker for critters, so I truly adore all the sweet Colorize animals, and love that they are scaled to work perfectly together if you want to mix and match them. And now with this release, Tim has added a set of Funky Trees to create background settings for the animals, too.


I had lots of fun combining both new and older sets to make the jungle scene for Harrison to perch in. Of course there are the tall layered trees from the new Funky Trees set. And I used the previously released Media Marks and Circle Play die sets to create the bushes and the sun. Tiny Type letters and the Curio Box banner were used to create the start of the pun sentiment that was carried to the inside of the card.


For a big impact on a big sentiment, the new Alphanumeric Bold alphabet set is just the ticket.


This is a larger card design at 5×7, so you can see how grand these new Colorize and Funky sets can be. Perfect for cards or altered art or home decor. And now one more adorable animal to add to the zoo!

It’s an exciting day for fans of Tim Holtz Distress, because today a new color is revealed! I have no idea what it is, and cannot wait to see. I’m wondering if it’s a red, for the month of love. What do you think? Any guesses from you?

Tim Holtz & Sizzix 2021 Chapter 1- Bloom Colorize


Hello, Crafty Friends, and happy Tuesday to you all! Today I am excited to share another one of my makes for the Tim Holtz Sizzix 2021 Chapter 1 Release, shared recently on YouTube Live. This is the beautiful new Bloom Colorize die set along with the new Alphanumeric Bold set, on a 5×7 desk frame.


I am a huge fan of Tim’s Colorize die sets, and was super happy to see florals now included in the line. This set includes a gorgeous stylized flower that reminds me of a rose or a camelia, as well as a branch of buds, berries, and greenery, too. One of my favorite things about this set is that the pieces look great in just about any color, so you’re not roped into a limited color palette or design.


I die cut my botanical pieces mostly from Kraft Stock cardstock, but did mix in layers that were inked with Distress Oxide. I really like the visual textures you get from mixing different mediums, and that’s a great way to add a bit of dimension to an otherwise relatively flat design.


I almost always remove the glass when I alter a frame, and that’s what I did this time, as well as removing the top of the frame in this case, too.  For this project, I stamped and inked a watercolor cardstock background and layered it onto a green cardstock base. The base was then adhered to the back of a cheap thrift-store 5×7 desk frame, and topped with an Idea-ology frame that was painted and inked. I love creating my own frames and decor from my favorite Idea-ology pieces for a truly unique project design.


Here’s my finished frame with my Mr. Rabbit pillow. Definitely makes me ready for spring. How about you?

In the Meadow with Ranger Ink


Happy Fri-Yay, crafty friends! Are you all ready for the weekend? It’s always such a happy day when Friday rolls around again, and what a beautiful day it is, too. I just got bundled into my winter coat and hat and set out to walk the dog, only to quickly find out that it’s actually about 60 degrees today. Obviously I didn’t bother to check before I headed out, and clearly, just like Bernie with his woolly winter mittens, I am prepared for winter.


And even though we’re far from any real snow around here, I do have some frosty friends to share with you today. These snowy tags feature some fun snowman stamps from Tim Holtz and Stamper’s Anonymous and lots of layers of Distress products, from Archival Distress to Distress Oxide to regular Distress Ink. Throw in some Distress Paint and Distress Grit Paste, and finish things off with a bit of Distress Texture Paste, for good measure. Each product brings its own unique qualities to the design, and I love how these simple tags look opaque in some areas and translucent in others, with a great textured tactile finish all over.


I used Tim Holtz Sizzix dies to cut the tags and add the crochet paper trim to the bottom. Simple ribbon ties were added to the top, along with some long-hoarded Idea-ology ice skate trinkets.

I’m very happy to have the full step-by-step tutorial for creating these tags up on the Ranger Ink Project Page, if you’d like to learn more.
Happy weekend, friends! And thanks so much for stopping by!

Cathedral Window Ornies with Tim Holtz

It’s here! Christmas is here! And with it comes my last holiday-themed project for this year… a pair of mixed-media ornaments that I made for the Tim Holtz Sizzix Chapter 4 Release featuring the fabulous Bigz die Cathedral Window.


I love a good Bigz die that opens up a world of possibilities for die cutting materials thicker than regular paper and cardstock. These cathedral windows were die cut from several layers of thick chipboard which were then glued together, and I love how sturdy and durable they are. I coated the chipboard with Distress paint and grit paste, topped off with Ranger crackle texture paste and mica flakes. The finish reminds me of those old vintage Putz house designs that I adore.


I used Ranger alcohol inks to tint some acetate sheet, and backed the ornaments with that for a stained glass effect. Alcohol inks were also used to tint some Idea-ology baubles which were added to the bottom of the window. The paper dolls were tinted with Distress inks. That is the new and amazing Winged 3D Impresslit texture fade, die cut from metallic cardstock, that is added to the back of the paper dolls. So so pretty for Christmas.

I know this isn’t the holiday we all would hope for, but I do hope you have a very wonderful Christmas anyway. Thank you, as always, for all your visits and sweet comments that you have left here throughout the year. Merry Christmas, friends! Hugs to you all!

A Very Merry Christmas with Ranger Ink


Happy Wednesday, crafty friends! It’s another miserable, rainy day here, but I am snuggled up in my blanket as I write this right now, so happy that I can just stay inside. I am really hoping to put the finishing touches on my holiday decorating today. My tree is still bare and the Christmas houses aren’t up. Great tasks for a cold and rainy day.


I am just about done with my holiday cards, though, and that always feels great to scratch off an item from the to-do list. Today I wanted to share one of my favorite cards of this season… A lovely Distress Christmas card, filled with wonderful Tim Holtz stamps, inks, and dies, that I made this week for the Ranger Ink Projects Page.


I adore the large sentiments in the Doodle Greetings stamp sets, and picked out my favorite holiday greeting for this fun card today. The large size of the fonts make them perfect for focal images on card designs, and I love when a card needs only a sentiment and not much else to make it really pop. Great for mass-producing, or for when you’re a bit pressed for time, like around the holidays.


I did some masking on the central panel to leave an opening for the sentiment, and then stamped a design around the edge for a bit of extra interest, and I do really love the framework that creates. There’s lots of inking, of course, with a bit of water coloring mixed in. A pair of pine boughs and a big bow at the bottom finish the design.

As always, I’ve got the complete step-by-step tutorial for this project up on the Ranger Ink website, if you’d like to learn more.

Stay warm and safe and dry today, my friends! And thanks so much for stopping by!

Diecember at Simon Says Stamp

Happy Friday, crafty friends! It’s that holiday time of year when sales and deals are flying everywhere, and today kicks off an exciting promotion at Simon Says Stamp for those of you who love the Tim Holtz brand. Simply purchase any Tim Holtz product, and you will receive an exclusive Diecember gift for FREE….. this beautiful Tim Holtz Feathered Cardinal die set.


This stunning Feathered Cardinal die set is based on the popularity of the Feathered Friends set that Tim released earlier this year. I absolutely adored that set, and am so thrilled to add this cardinal to my collection. If you would like to snag this set, too, head on over quickly to Simon Says Stamp, because this exclusive freebie is only available with the purchase of any Tim Holtz branded products, while supplies last.


Like the Feathered Friends set, this Thinlits set die cuts multiple pieces that you stack and build, and I love how those layers allow you to add dimension and easily use different colors together, like the black section around his beak and eye. For my project, I die cut all the pieces from Distress Watercolor cardstock and then watercolored them with Distress Inks. I glued all the pieces flat together, except for the wing, which was popped up with a bit of foam tape for dimension. And then a dot of Glossy Accents was added to bring out some shine in the eye.


The background was also inked in Distress, and lightly stamped with musical notes. I love how Distress Crackle Texture Paste adds a stucco-like finish to inked surfaces, so I added that to the corners and layered the panel onto Kraft Stock cardstock. A stamped sentiment, a big puffy bow, and die cut Pine Branch accents finish the design.

Be sure to head over to Simon Says Stamp to score your Diecember Feathered Cardinal Thinlits die set before time runs out! I have a feeling these sets are going to go fast!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you all an amazing weekend ahead!
