Robin Orewiler: “I love the new Dina Wakley and dylusions. The adhesive strips look cool too.”

Nancy Noble: “Love the make your own stamp pad.”

Diana: “Transfer foil sheets – always loved those but they have been challenging to find. It’s like comfort food for the crafting soul. Glad to see that they have them in many different colors.”

Denise Bryant: “I’m all excited about the newest Mini Distress Ink pad sets! Can’t wait to get them… set #11 is top on my list! LOVE Festive Berries…. perfect color for holiday creating”

Joan Setree: “Love the Dina Wakely and Dylusions stencils and stamps!”

Brenda Lubrant:  “I just put some of Dina Wakley’s new stamps and stencils and the ball pens on my wish list.”

Virginia Allen:  “I love all the releases, but really love Dyan’s Strength stamp set. Would love to watercolor them and use on tags and ATC’s. I also like the new paintbrushes. I need new ones and I love that the set includes flats and rounds.”

Dana Cavanaugh:  “It’s hard to pick only one! The foil sheets and the Dina Wakely stamps and stencils are great!”

Linda L in Tennessee: “Happy to see the Shiny Transfer Foil Sheets! These have been gone from the stores for years!”

Carole Ford: “Love the new Dylusions stamps and stencils.”

Jen Clark:  “Oh my, do I really have to choose??? I love Dyan’s new Strength women stamps, and I love Dina’s new Scribbly Insects and Primitive Icons stamps and her new Swirly Mosaic stencil. And I *STILL* haven’t gotten my hands on the black or red Fude ball pen, but I SUPER DUPER want them in ALL the colors, including the new blue!!! I am BEYOND THRILLED that all 48 colors of Distress are now in mini (must get them…and desperately need those little storage tins, because my lids keep falling off!!!), and I cannot wait to try all of the new adhesives, especially combining the Adhesive Sheets, with die cutting, with the Foil Transfer Sheets…I foresee some gorgeous fall and Christmas cards coming!!!”

Renee M.: “The little ink sets are one of my favorites of the new releases because they’re what I would use the most. I’m limited on space so is nice that they’re small. :)

Lisa M:  “I’m stoked about the adhesive foam in black! I use adhesive foam quite a bit and usually end up coloring the edges with a permanent marker so they blend into the background when the piece is viewed from an angle. The black foam will save me so much work – genius idea!”

Barbara Albrecht:  “I’m excited about so many of the new things! On the top of my list would be Dina and Dyan’s stamps and stencils. Then there’s the Fude pens…in colors, too! And…lovin’ the black foam adhesive….have wanted black for several years but could never seem to find it anywhere…now Ranger has it!!”

Summer Memories Tag Booklet

July 26th, 2014

Have you been taking a bunch of photos this summer, and don’t know what to do with them? Tara Nixon Cox has a great solution.  This super cute, quick and easy tag book is the perfect place to save those precious memories.

Summer-Tag-CropFor this project you will need:

Here’s how it’s done:

Stamp camera blueprint twice on a manila tag in Black Archival Ink. Use Dylusions Ink Sprays to paint the images. If you have water brushes filled with ink, use those. (*budget tip* If you don’t, simply pour a small amount of your desired colors into a paint palette and paint with a brush.) Add multiple layers of color to darken and White Dylusions to add highlights. Don’t waste the extra ink. Pour it on your Craft Sheet and ink up some Crinkle Ribbon with it! Crumple up and set aside the ribbon to dry. It will be used to tie up your booklet later.

SummerTagAPlace a Dylusions stencil over a tag and apply Distress Paint over it onto the tag. Lift the stencil and flip over onto another tag and ‘stamp’ off the excess paint. Allow both tags to dry and select your favorite to be the front of your tag booklet. I used the ‘stamped’ kraft tag.

SummerTagB

Cut out the colored cameras, layering the lens portion of the image with adhesive foam squares. Ink the edges of the camera image and the tag with Walnut Stain Distress Ink.

SummerTagCSelect some words from the Seasonal Chit Chat Stickers, stick them on your Craft Sheet and ink part of each of them with Distress Ink. Adhere to opposite corners of the tag.

SummerTagDEmbellish your tag with Tissue Tape and lay bits of Film Strip Ribbon over it. Adhere with Mini Attacher.

SummerTagESpritz Dylusions Ink Spray in London Blue in the center of the blank space on your tag and allow to dry.  If you’d like some extra thickness, brush Matte Medium to a second tag and adhere to the back of this tag to stabilize it. Once dry, adhere the camera image over the ink spot in the center of your tag.

SummerTagFBefore you clean up, use the sprays, inks and stencils to add simple decorations on additional manila and kraft tags. These will be the pages of your tag booklet. Fill them with photos, memories & ephemera from your summer holiday! Tie it all together with the Crinkle Ribbon you inked up earlier.
