Recycle it at Totally Tilda

Hello or should I say Goodbye?
This will be my last project at Totally Tilda.  It's very sad, but life is getting really busy and I need to take time for other priority.  Don't worry, I will still continue making cards, I will just take longer!
We have a challenge that ends the 18th of Jan 2014.  The theme is:
Anything goes with the option of recycling an item.
I used a frame I had for quite a few years.  I airbrushed it with my Copics, added a bow and an angel charm.
Original frame


I made a stencil with my Cricut for the sentiment.  It means:  "Two little angels watch over you".
Flowers from WOC.
I coloured Starboy Edwin and Star Tilda with Copics and added Smooch Illuminate and Stickles.

London, here I come at Totally Tilda

Hello,
Can you believe it's already the 1st of December?  WOW, Christmas is coming so fast and I'm not sure I'm ready!  This fortnight at Totally Tilda, we have a wonderful challenge.  Lately, I love making different kinds of projects and our theme fits perfectly:
Tilda on anything but a card!
Bonjour,
Pouvez vous croire qu'on est déjà le premier décembre?  Noël arrive à grand pas et je ne sais pas si je suis prête!  Pour les deux prochaines semaines, nous avons un défi fantastique chez Totally Tilda.  C'est parfait pour les projets que je fais dernièrement:
Tilda sur tout sauf une carte
I made this perpetual calendar for my dear friend Sandra at The Creative Express Stops Here.  It was her birthday and I wanted something special for her that she could cherish for  a long time.  She visited England not too long ago and she had such a good vacation, I hope it will remind her of this.
I used flowers from WOC and various dies to made the wheel with the clouds.
J'ai fait ce calendrier perpétuel pour mon amie Sandra de The Creative Express Stops Here.  C'était sa fête et je voulais quelque chose de spécial dont elle pourrait profiter pour un bon bout de temps.  Elle est allée en Angleterre dernièrement et s'est bien amusée.  J'espère que ça lui rappellera ce bon moment.
J'ai pris des fleurs de WOC et plusieurs découpes pour la roue avec les nuages.
Edwin with Derbyhat
Tilda and Edwin are standing up with the help of a piece of acetate folded in two.  Lots of fussy cutting!!!
Tilda et Edwin tiennent debout avec un morceau d'acétate pliée en deux.
Tilda and Wiola
I think she looks like the Queen waving at her subjets!
Je trouve qu'elle ressemble à la reine qui salue ces sujets!
Vintage Phone Booth
I made the dice with clay.  I embossed the ground to make it look like cobblestone.  I've never been to England, but that's what I imagine the roads look like, lol!!!!
J'ai fait les dés avec de l'argile.  J'ai embossé le sol pour qu'il ressemble à un chemin de pierre.  Je ne suis jamais allé en Angleterre, mais dans mon imagination, c'est comme ça que les routes sont, *rire*!!!

I coloured all the images with Copics.
J'ai colorié toutes les images avec mes Copics.

Invitation Tilda at Totally Tilda

Hi,
The fun continues at Totally Tilda and our challenge is:
Buttons and bows
Bonjour,
Le défi continue chez Totally Tilda.  Le thème est:
Boutons et boucles
A few years ago, my mother-in-law gave me this wonderful booklet to put important dates.  I used it a lot and decided it would make the perfect gift!  So I revamped the idea and made this little birthday book.  Since she's also a crafter, I thought this little Tilda was perfect!  I added a leather binding for strenght.  The papers are from LOTV and the banner from La-La-Land.
Voilà à peu près deux ans, ma belle-mère m'a donné un petit livre fantastique pour mettre les dates importantes.   Je l'utilise beaucoup et je trouve que ça ferait un cadeau parfait!  J'ai donc décidé de changer l'idée un peu et j'ai fait un petit livret de fête pour une bonne amie.  Puisqu'elle est aussi une bricoleuse, je trouve que cette Tilda est parfaite!  J'ai ajouté la reliure en cuir pour rendre le tout plus solide.  Les papiers sont de LOTV et la bannière de La-La-Land.
From this point of view, you can see the brads I put to add texture.
De ce côté, vous pouvez voir les attaches parisiennes que j'ai mis pour ajouté de la texture.
I coloured Invitation Tilda with Copics and paper pieced her blouse.  I added Frantage around the image.
J'ai colorié Tilda avec mes Copics et fait sa blouse avec du papier à motif.  J'ai ajouté du Frantage autour de l'image.

Here's the inside of the book.  I made little cards to put everyones birthday for each month.  I printed them with my computer.  They are pretty much the same as the one in the book I have.
Voici l'intérieur du livre.  J'ai fait des pages pour mettre les anniversaires de tout le monde pour chaque mois.  Je les ai imprimés avec mon ordinateur.  Ils sont presque identiques à ceux de mon livret.

James with Snowflakes

Bonjour à tous, 
J'ai terminé une autre carte avec mon petit James préféré!!!  Je l'avais colorié l'année passée pour une classe que je donnais, mais je ne l'avais pas utilisé.  Alors, le voici:
Hello,
I finished another card with my favourite teddy bear:  James!  I coloured him last year for a class I was teaching but never used him.  Here he is:
J'ai utilisé encore une fois les beaux papiers de Maja Design.  J'ai ajouté un beau napperon, du papier gaufré, de la corde, quelque pierres et un sentiment.
I used once again Maja Design papers.  I added a doily, twine, gems and a sentiment.
Voici le petit James en gros plan!  Je l'ai colorié avec mes Copics et ajouté du Glitter Ritz au chapeau.
Here's James Bear-In the Snow.  I coloured him with Copics and added Glitter Ritz to the trim of his hat.

New James with Tree

Bonjour,
J'ai finalement eu le temps de m'amuser avec mes nouvelles estampes de James l'ourson de LOTV!
Hello,
I finally had time to colour one of my new LOTV James the Bear stamp!
Le voici dans toute sa gloire!!!!  J'ai encore pris des papiers Maja Design et fini par une simple boucle.
Here he is, so cute an cuddly!!!  I used Maja Design papers once again and finished by a simple bow.
J'ai colorié James avec mes Copics et ajouté du Crystal Effect sur les boules, du Stickles sur l'étoile et du Glitter Ritz sur les bordures de son chapeau.
I coloured James- Christmas Tree with Copics and added Crystal Effects on the ornaments, Stickles on the star and Glitter Ritz on the trim.

J'ai estampé le sentiment et puis je l'ai embossé plusieurs fois pour mettre du relief.  On dirait que c'est un jeton de Bingo!!!
I stamped the sentiment and then used UTC to add some depth.  It feels like a bingo chip!!!

Angel Tilda at Totally Tilda

Hi,
Welcome to another fun challenge at Totally Tilda.  The theme this time is:
Buttons and bows
Bonjour,
Bienvenue à un autre défi de Totally Tilda.  Le thème est:
Boutons et boucles
I made another card with Maja Design pattern paper.  It still gives me hives to cut into them, lol!!!!  I added very little, I didn't want to hide the wonderful papers!  I made the bow with my Bow-it-All and added some buttons I had for a while.  I finished with a LOTV sentiment.
J'ai fait une autre carte avec des papiers à motif de Maja Design.  Je suis encore nerveuse quand je les coupe, *rire*!!!  J'ai gardé le tout assez simple pour ne pas couvrir ces beaux papiers.  J'ai fait la boucle avec mon Bow-it-All et ajouté des petits boutons que j'avais déjà.  J'ai fini par un sentiment de LOTV.

I coloured Angel Tilda with Gloria with Copics and added Stickles to her wings and halo.
J'ai colorié Tilda avec mes Copics et ajouté du Stickles sur ses ailes et son halo.
