I love the Papillon Stamp, it is one of my favorites and it has a fabulous background stamp in the same package. I did my distressing with my blending tool along with Peeled Paint, Aged Mahogany, Frayed Burlap, and Wild Honey to achieve the colors on my vanilla tag. I also did and extra stamp of the butterfly to give my tag some dimension. Can you see the small water splatters on the tag, AWESOME.
On my second tag I just stamped my stamp with the various inks from the inks, inked it and stamped it several times and of course inked the sides. I also used a metal butterfly from 7Gypsies, bent the edges, painted the edges with my paint dabbers and used a bit of Glossy Accent in the center of the butterfly.
On my last tag I used the Visual Artistry Stamp set to create my tag. This tag is done by using the same color palette only this time you do smear spots on your craft sheets to achieve the look. I added a metal nib to the bottom of my tag along with some of the Tim Holtz film strip.
I would encourage you if you haven't signed up for the Creativity 101 class you may still have time. I gave you some basic information on each tag that you would find on Tim's Blog, in his book or previewing his videos. I am trying to honor him by giving you a bit of information and encouraging you to go to his site to see how wonderful his products are. I LOVE, LOVE Tim Holtz products because they work so well with other manufactures that I am very fond of. Let me know if you have tried this technique or if you are doing his class, would love to see what you have done. Hugs Pammejo

For my banner I used Fancy Pants It's Your Day Paper collection, it is a birthday collection but I think it so bright and cheerful that I used it for my banners and blossoms. My banner, blossoms, butterflies and bunnies are all made from chipboard. I added large buttons tied with ribbon to the center of my flowers.
I cut my bunny from kraft paper and then used chalks to chalk up the bunny to give it character, I all did all the details with a Le Pen Brown pen, added a black rhinestone eye and a red gingham bow at the neck. All of the dots has Glossy Accent on them to give some depth to the banner.
I made my fence on my Cameo and then did the line work with my Le Pen Brown pen. I love doing line work it always makes a project come together. My fun flowers are from Tim Holtz Tattered Flower Garland die. They are so pretty and I made a few of my roly poly flowers to go along with them. I added some green gemstones to the center of the flowers.
My bunny I drew on to kraft paper and again did chalking and line work to give the bunny life.
For this banner the letters are Basic Grey letters from a sticker sheet that I had. Again, I did another giant flower with the large button. I also added Glossy Accent to the circles on the paper.
I did a mirror image of the banner two for my 4 banner. I just love how it turned out.
The little birdie is from EK Spring Chicks sticker sheet, they have a grainy look to them and are very cool to use.
My last banner is again with the large blossoms chipboard along that I have used Glossy Accent circles with another of the chipboard butterflies. The center of the flower is from Lil Davis Designs.
The next stop on the hop is with Rachelle of Creations by Rachelle, I hop you enjoy all of the banners and continue on with the hop. I am sure you will be inspired and may be glean a new technique or idea along the way. If you did not have a chance to do the hop yesterday there is a new group of designers that made banners to send to the Pediatric Specialty Care Center, so if you have time please check out their blogs. I am so glad you stopped by my blog and hope you come back often. Hugs Pammejo

www.fatcatcreations.blogspot.coNow for my project: I bought this cabinet at our local Goodwill Store for 2.99. It is a pretty nice cabinet but as soon as I seen it I knew exactly what I wanted to make with it. "Instant" inspiration, don't you love that when it happens. m/
The first picture shows you the front of the cabinet but here are a few close ups. I love roly poly flowers and use them on so many projects because they are so simple to make. All you need to do is punch out a 2" circle, using your scissors and cut a spiral shape with your circle. Now wrap the outside edge around a pair of tweezers to you get it to the middle, pull the spiral of the tweezers, allow it to release itself a bit and glue to the center with tacky glue. My little Making Memories bottle is filled with Glossy Accent, alcohol ink and for whatever reason it didn't set up so the just moves around freely in the bottle which is really pretty cool. On the bottom left corner I made more of fun roly poly flowers along with some Jolee's flowers that I sprayed with Perfect Pearls sprays. I love to fussy cut so my lady is fussy cut out and place on top of a doily that I also sprayed with Perfect Pearls. I added some Tim Holtz metals, ribbons, keys, etc to give my box characterHere is the inside of my cabinet before I did the inside of it
This is the inside of the cabinet. Can you guess what I made my cabinet into. I made us a Coffee Table Storage Box for our remotes and placed a photo album in it using a 7Gypsies album in it.Here is one side of the box. I did all 4 sides in the same paper and ribbons
Here is the other side of my storage box, I love the Pigs Fly die cut. I also used the sentiments from one of the sheets of paper and double matted them after I distressed them my Tim Holtz distress tool and tiny attacher. My Storage Box is made completely with the Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe Collection is the inside of the box, places for our remote controls and a family album
. The album is from 7Gypsies and is covered with the Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe along with more roly poly flowers, die cuts, and metals.
The first designer is the very talented Pinky form Much Ado About Nothing.

Here are the directions for the frame that Sharmiece made:
I used a unfinished frame from Michael's. The patterned paper is Echo Parks Red Floral. I painted the inside/outside of the frame and the chipboard letters with Making Memories paint. I attached the paper with Mod Podge. Sanded around the edges to take off the stray pieces that where left behind. The bling was add once the flowers where attached. The paper flowers where rolled with Bazill cardstock and attached to the frame using hot glue.
Unfinished frame from Michael's

On both cards Hero Arts new
Wish Big Stamp was used. On the first card I did a multi embossing technique using Seafoam White and Butterscotch embossing powder and on the second card I stamped the sentiment using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink. The background of my second card is from Canvas Designs Burlap Sheet. I then layered my paper and stamped pieces to the front of the burlap.
I added a tag from the cut out sheet along with Blue Moon Madame Delphine's Charms that I picked up in the jewelry department of my local craft store. I wrapped my tag with Canvas Brown Twine, to hold everything to the card base I used my Tim Holtz stapler and stapled in several places. I hope you try using some metals on your masculine cards. Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting Pammejo

I made this wreath last year for my front door and since you can only use it for a very short time I still have it and would like to share it with you today for the All About the Green Blog Hop. I bought green flowers, ribbons and other St Patrick's items from my local hobby store. I then placed them on my wreath using my glue gun and added some of the die cut shamrocks here and there throughout the wreath.
Your next stop on the hop is with Scrapping with Lisa-Handmade with Love Blog. I hope you stop back by tomorrow and see what all the designers have made for the hop. Hugs Pammejo
