I finally got something crafty done! I am simply amazed it happened. Okay the only reason it happened is because I have to wait for the acid stuff in the pool to start working and I can't get in it yet so I was stuck trying to find something to do.
Of course you guys recognize Tim Holtz, Mr. Grunge himself! I got to see him in action at the GASC last year.
Cricut - Expressions; Stamped cartridge; Printing Press cartridge;
Patterned paper - Tim Holtz Retro
Cardstock - various
Stampin Up - marker
Brads - Eyelet Outlet; Basic Grey
Inks - Cat Eye Chalk Ink; Tim Holtz Distress Ink
For the name I used Stamped and I used Design Studio to hide the contour on the burnt orange cardstock and then layered the letters on top. I strung the tags on floral wire and gave it a little twist at the top. I also added a few of the Tim Holtz mini staples on a few of the tags. I forgot to take a close up shot of the "king of grunge" but it was done with Printing Press. Both Stamped and Printing Press are retired now, and I am so glad I have them! I love these fonts!
If you have rewards points and like Printing Press it is available for 800 points, just click HERE to see.
The book flowers are some I had made a few months back and I actually used them because I was too lazy to look for something else to embellish the page with.
I have plenty of scallop circles punched out to make some more of these flowers but I haven't gotten around to making up a stash of them. That might be something I can do next week when I feel like making something.
For those who are wondering about the pool update...well it was very cloudy so I had to add some acid to bring down the PH level. The instructions say to wait 24 hours to see if the pool clears, I am not a patient person and I want it clear LAST WEEK. But I am trying to be good and do as instructed *okie figures that needs to be written down on the calendar*. I certainly hope the pool is good to go by this evening as my friend Nancy is coming over to swim. I am going to make some shish-ka-bobs on the grill, at least that is my plan. Dang that means I need to go to the grocery store after going for my platelet donation! UGH! I hate the grocery store!!
