The second tag is using a image from the Nutcracker Set. The star is cut with a Spellbinder and the snowflakes are MS and the lacey one I do not know the maker. The tag top was cut with a Spellbinder and the creme embossed with the dotted swiss folder.

Tutorial Time Speedy TV

This week our tutorial is brought to us by Jane. It is to make weathered wood. 
This is a nice technique, stop over and visit the tutorial HERE. After making my
 weathered wood background I added a embossed brown to
 mat my image on. I used a image from the Big Boy Toys Set colored 
and cut out with a Spellbinder Scalloped Square. A scalloped circular
 punch was used for the sentiment. Pretty simple, just didnt have
 any man embellies to go with it lol.

Albums....

One of my favorite things to make. This week at TTSTV it's my turn to bring the tutorial. I call them fan fold albums and you can find the instructions here. The fun part about these albums is the fan attachment allows them to be chunky and still lay pretty flat
You can make as many pages as you want, just making sure to adjust the amount of folds.

UGH...Having trouble with lighting!! It really looks much better in person with the true colors. Does need a few more embellies but I ran out of steam, will work on it some more later lol!!

The cover was made using a Spellbinder die for the shape with a little dp lace, pearls and stitching. I love the new Roses image, beautiful and fun to color! I stamped and cut two of the larger and one small, then nestled them together and popped two up for some dimension.
I embellished each page with dps, stamps, paste, ink, lace etc.

For the inside cover I used the  flowers from the Coneflower Set, sentiment from the Huge Blossom Set and under the flap I used the peacock image from the Be A ShowOff Set and sentiment from the Family Set.




















Pg 1  Used the image and sentiment from the Tiger Lily Set

Pg 2 Used images from the Friends Set and sentiment from the Today Tomorrow and Always Set

Pg 3   Used the the Hydrangea Set Image Set and the sentiment from the Welcome Poppies Set

New Friday Challenge

Here at Tutorial Time on Speedy TV our tutorial is brought to us BARB by this week. It is distressed Stains. Its quick and easy and gives a  nice background to use instead of dps.After using a couple Tim Holtz stains I also used the same folder to emboss for some added dimension. I love the new rose image and Sterling Silver Roses are one of my favorites, so I colored it the lavender and cut it out. A couple of foam dots to pop it up and help it look a little more dimensional too. A different color combo but I like the contrast. So pop over and check out Barb's tutorial and give this one a try!

Friends of Speedy TV


Our new Challenge is to make a Joy Fold Card.
 There are lots of tutorials out there if you dont know how to make one.
 They are easy and so versatile. For mine I went with the aqua/turquoise
 colors for my dps. I also used a SU embossing folder for the white inside 
pieces. I used the flowers from the Camellia Set through out the card.
  The hummer is from the Hum Along Set.
A couple stacked buttons for the closure and its done.
Easy and fun to do!

Here what it looks like opened up.
My teammates have some beautiful examples for you this week,
