{merry} christmas canvas on the TCW blog…

hello!

are you getting things checked off your holiday list? mine are being ticked off VERY SLOWLY! Christmas seems to come faster and faster every year. the more i try to be prepared, the less prepared i feel!

i did manage to finish a canvas that i started in my altered canvas class last month. it even has a PHOTO on it! we went to a tree farm and found a very fat, very “crazy” Christmas tree! it is definitely different, but that is why we liked it. i snapped a photo of the hubbie and kids standing in front of it before we chopped it down. it went perfect with the canvas colors {i wonder how THAT happened – surely i didn’t select the clothes JUST to match the canvas – or did i! LOL!}

here is a pic of the finished canvas…

christmas ornaments on the TCW Blog

hi all!

i have a new project up on The Crafter’s Workshop Blog, these embossed metal ornaments…

tcw emb tin orn - wm

these ornaments are easy to make and are great for embellishing packages, bags, cards and tags.

metal pieces were embossed using a diecut machine and stencils from The Crafter’s Workshop. the tinting was done using Izink Inks from Clearsnap.

i’ve put together a Snapguide that shows how to make these step-by-step in both written and photo directions. you can view the project and get the link to the Snapguide by visiting the post here: EMBOSSED METAL ORNAMENTS – TCW BLOG

please post a comment for me on the TCW Blog, it would be nice to know you visited!

hello!

this month’s photoFULL & money $aving $ketches classes will be held on tuesday, november 18 from 10:30 to 1:30 at Scrapbook n’ More in new braunfels…

here are some snippets of the layouts…

photoFULL: another BIG ONE! with Christmas fast approaching, i thought you could use some LARGE photoFULL layout! this one holds about 25+ photos a mix of verticals and horizontals, and not much cropping of photos unless you want to.

money $aving $ketches: both layouts hold about 8 photos, there are some large mats so you can crop your photos to fit as you wish. layouts can use horizontal or vertical photos or a mix of both. photos that can be cropped to 4 X 4 are especially good for these layouts.

altered canvas class

hi all,

i had a comment on the altered canvas class asking about making a “christmas” themed canvas…

YES! i think that is a great idea! i have several christmas themed stencils, and i think making a canvas to display your holiday photo would be wonderful.

i’ll bring some seasonal “bits” in case any of you attending would like to make your canvas a holiday one.

there are still some spots available, so if you’d like to come, please do! just call Scrapbook N’ More to sign up!

thanks,

tami

these custom canvases would make GREAT christmas gifts!

then, from 5-11, i’ll be hosting at crop at Scrapbook N’ More. bring unfinished “tami” projects or anything you’d like me to help with. cost is only $10, but it you sign up by TODAY, november 5, you will get a $5 credit to use during the crop {not applicable to the $10 crop fee}.

dia de los muertos

hi all!

today is dia de los muertos or day of the dead – a day to remember and celebrate the lives of friends and family who have passed on.

although dancing skeletons and grinning skulls could be considered macabre, they are usually decked out in colorful costumes and bright colors.

favorite foods and personal items are gathered and placed around photos of departed loved ones in remembrance. picnics are held on grave sites lavished with flowers.

in honor of the day, i made an embossed metal “sugar skull” using a stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop and Izink Inks from Clearsnap…

sugar skull wm (1251x1280)

you can find more info as well as a link to the Snapguide showing how to make this project on The Crafter’s Workshop Blog: Sugar Skull

take to time reflect on the lives of those you miss today…
