Joy: Tinsel and Company Layout by Jennifer Haggerty

Hello friends! Jennifer on the blog today to share my layout I created using one of two of Teresa's new Christmas lines: Tinsel and Company!  If you haven't checked out this collection, then you MUST go over to Teresa's home page here and look at all of the elegant gold accents!  When I first saw this collection in person, I couldn't wait to start creating!  



The Chipboard Elements come with an array of shapes and sentiments in gold, gray, red, and silver.  I love this "joy" handwritten script and used it for the title of my page! Also, with the Chipboard Elements you receive a 6x12 sheet of chipboard letter tiles!  

Here, you can see a mixture of the coordinating chipboard stars, sequins, and enamel dots.  I love that Teresa always has a big selection of gorgeous embellishments! 

Tinsel and Company also includes a set of  Tags that are perfect layer under your photos!  I also added a sentiment from the Decorative Stickers.


More goodies from Tinsel and Company! I am in LOVE with the matte gold sequins as well as the silver stars!  
 I layered one of the Tinsel and Company Photo Overlays UNDER my photo.  It's fun to allow some of the design to peek through.  
Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you are following Teresa on Facebook and her blogas she is currently showing her new collections at the SPC Trade Show!  
Have a wonderful day!

Tinsel & Company Cards with Tessa

Hi!  I had a chance to play with the new Tinsel & Company collection over the weekend and made a couple of cards to share today.  My favorite part of the collection is the gold foil printed patterned paper.  It's so shiny and pretty!  Perfect for holiday cards!


My first one features the gold polka-dots on kraft patterned paper (Dots Paper) along with a couple die-cuts from the Tinsel & Company Ephemera pack:


Isn't that gold nice!!  The ephemera pieces are distressed looking- like old wooden signs.  I really love the look!  Here is a closeup:


I kept this one simple, embellishing a little with burlap and machine stitching.  Thank goodness for the Teresa Collins Clear Hold Adhesive by Xyron- it was the only thing that would keep this burlap ribbon in place!

My second card features some of the pretty stamps in the Tinsel & Company collection:


That sentiment stamp is sooo pretty!  I want to use it on all my Christmas cards this year!  Here I've stamped it with a pretty silver ink on a vellum journaling card.  It was hard to get a picture of the metallic shine but boy is it nice in real life!  Here is a closer look:


I've used papers from the Tinsel & Company 6x6 pad on this card along with an Ephemera Tag, a couple of Decorative Stickers, and some Sequins from the collection.  The stars on the card base are another stamp from the Clear Stamp set as well.

This collection definitely put me in the Christmas mood!  It has a classic look and will work so well for so many different projects!  I can't wait to pull it out again!

Thanks for joining me today!

Christmas Countdown by Yvonne Blair

Hi everyone! I hope you are enjoying the Thirty days of inspiration! 

I love to re-purpose.  What about you?
I found this picture frame thing at a thrift shop. 
It was really beat up and needed some TLC.  
I decided to paint it GOLD when I saw Teresa's new Christmas lines instead of making it into a mini album, I thought hmmm what about an interactive countdown.  
Her Decorative tags worked perfect.  One pack!

I layed all the tags out on my desk and decorated them together. That made it easier for me then doing it one at a time.  I knew I needed numbers for the left side and even more numbers for the right side. I did have to use two of the decorative chipboard packs to have enough numbers. I also used the ephemera pack and some sequins! You have to use those they are just so cute!!!
 These are all the numbers for the right side. 
 And below the numbers for the left side.  I also created a "Countdown" tag to get the family excited.
I am sure they will be fighting over who gets to flip the number, lol.
 Here is how it would look on day December 1.
 And then December 25! 

 I did continue it on so that it will go all the way to the 31.  I figured it would be fun to keep it up till New Year's Eve! 
I hope this inspired you to look around and see what you can re-purpose! 
See you again next time!!!

Happy & by Stacey Michaud

I love to use large, repeating elements on a page, especially ones that are eye-catching.  I like to look for such elements right within the papers I am working with.  So when I was playing with the Something Wonderful collection, I was immediately drawn to the ampersand.  There are several within the collection and I decided to make them a major focal point!


 
I cut the large & from one of the sheets of paper called Cards.  I placed it to the left of my page along the bottom.  I also grabbed the chipboard ampersand that is much smaller and placed it near the large one.  I added the sequin stars (squeal, don't you just love them!) and the Something Wonderful chipboard banner topped off with a button.  I like how it created a random cluster that creates a rounded edge.
 
 
To create the top of the page, I added layered several papers.  I placed the white paper with the circles on top of the grid paper, making it have a monochromatic feel.  I cut the Bingo card from the sheet of paper named Bingo and placed it under my photo right along the edge of the page.  I placed the colorful blocks paper across the top because it adds a lot of color and grounds the entire page.  I like to use repeated elements in groups of three.  I placed the last & right near my photo to make the eye travel to that exact spot.  I topped it off with a brad and sticker, adding one last sequin star level with our eyes.  Those little tricks keep the photo the main star of the page.
 

 
Such a great collection!  Have you seen Teresa's newest releases for Summer 2014....they are stunning!

Candy Cane Lane Cards - Melissa Phillips



Christmas will be here before you know it and this is the time of year I love picking out new holiday supplies and get to work creating.  Teresa Collins' new Candy Cane Lane collection is irresistible and so much fun to create with.  I've created a couple of cards to share with you today using elements from this sweet new collection.


I pulled out the Candy Cane Lane acrylic stamps for this first card, using watermark ink and gold embossing powder for the snowflakes down the left side of my card.  I then layered sequins and adhesive pearls over the top of my stamping to add dimension and color.


All that was left was a bit of patterned paper from the Candy Cane Lane 6x6 Paper Pad, chipboard, and enamel dots...all from this wonderful collection.



This card uses a Candy Cane Lane die cut tag as the focal point layered over candy cane paper from the 6x6 paper pad.  I love the darling vintage images used throughout this collection.


I added chipboard and a die cut and then began layering other elements including a cardstock sticker, snowflake sequin, and enamel dot...all so much fun to create with and coordinate perfectly with all of the elements from this collection.


Lastly, a Candy Cane Lane button to finish it off.  You'll love creating with this collection and will find yourself singing Christmas carols before you know it :).
Thanks for stopping by.

Christmas in July - Framed ornament project by Cheri Piles using Tinsel and Company


Hey everyone, have you seen the new collection Tinsel and Company:: here is the link -> http://www.teresacollinsdesigns.com/product-category/2014-summer/tinsel-company/

I am in love with this new collection and the new WOOD ornaments!! I love all that you can do with them and how large they are! Instantly I thought about making home decor with them.

I started with the two striped wood ornaments and stained them both a deep cranberry red. Then I added foam squares to the outer edge of the first ornament. I cut a strip of the dots paper to cover the foam on the inside. I tied a few of the ornaments with invisible thread and left them to dangle on the inside. I then added the second ornament on the outside on an opposite angle creating a diamond shape of the two when you look straight at them. To finish it off I added decorative tape on the outer edge to give it a finished look.

I then painted a frame I picked up from the dollar store gold and cut the "B" side of the Tree's paper to use as my background since it had the diamonds. I tied a bit of ribbon to the top of my ornament. I cut apart another piece of the holly die cut from the ephemera package and layered it along the top and then adhered the ornament to the frame. Such a pretty piece for the holiday and it was a quick and easy project!! 

I hope you are inspired to create one of your own!! ~Cheri

Supplies used: 
Papers: Side B - tree's paper and dots paper.
Embellishments: Wood ornaments, ephemera package, decorative tape.
Other: Frame, gold paint, ribbon, red stain.
