7 Days of Halloween Inspiration - Day 6 and 7

Hi everyone!

Thank you to all who visited my blog this week!  I promise I will return visits asap!  I have to miss the last two days of the blog event as I was called away unexpectedly for work this week and didn't have a chance to get photos taken and posts posted.

I officially owe you two more new Halloween projects but in the meantime, I have a couple of substitutions!

1.) A photo of Amelia's first trip to the pumpkin patch last weekend
and 2.)  A's Halloween costume.  I can't wait to see her in it and pinky swear I'll post a pic for you of her in it -
Here is the rest of the inspiration crew - I hope you have had as much fun as we have this week!
Thanks so much for visiting and I hope you have a fun and crafty Halloween!

Welcome to Day 4 of the 7 Days of Halloween Inspiration Blog Event brought to you by "The Inspiration Crew". We’re a group of online crafty friends who love being creative. This time we're doing a 7-day event to provide you with tons of Halloween Inspiration. 
This is a fun oversized tag that I made using another one of the fun Halloween bingo cards.  I layered the card atop some patterned paper attached to the tag using purple brads.  I tied some purple ribbon around the tag and added a "bat droppings" label and some cute little buttons to finish it off.

7 Days of Halloween Inspiration - Day 3

Welcome to Day 3 of the 7 Days of Halloween Inspiration Blog Event brought to you by "The Inspiration Crew". We’re a group of online crafty friends who love being creative. This time we're doing a 7-day event to provide you with tons of Halloween Inspiration. 
I love the vintage feel of this card - the patterned papers are perfectly 50s!  :)  I layered orange patterned paper on top of a black card base and added a little type banner along the spine of the card.  I stamped and layered a die cut label wrapped with twine and added a little skull and "trick or treat" message for fun!

Welcome to Day 2 of the 7 Days of Halloween Inspiration Blog Event brought to you by "The Inspiration Crew". We’re a group of online crafty friends who love being creative. This time we're doing a 7-day event to provide you with tons of Halloween Inspiration. 
This is a fun card featuring kraft and black flocked paper (is that the right term for it?! - it's fuzzy...) mounted on a black card base.  I cut out another panel of kraft patterned paper and adhered it over the harlequin design.  I added some fuzzy spider stickers, a boo die cut and some green and purple buttons.

7 Days of Halloween Inspiration - Day 1

Welcome to Day 1 of the 7 Days of Halloween Inspiration Blog Event brought to you by "The Inspiration Crew". We’re a group of online crafty friends who love being creative. This time we're doing a 7-day event to provide you with tons of Halloween Inspiration.  
For my first project, I made a little folded tag that is a bit "collagey" (not sure if that is a word because spell check wants to change it to collagen, lol!)  On the outside panel of the tag, I layered some patterned paper and an October calendar die cut.  I wrapped it with twine and added a couple of Halloween stickers.
I stamped the interior of the tag with some fun stamps and added some Stickles for a glittery touch.  I finished it off with a "boo" sticker.  I love the way the little bats peek out from the front of the tag, too!

The Twinery and Ruby Rock-It Blog Hop!


Hello friends and welcome to the first of a 3-day The Twinery and Ruby Rock-It blog hop!  If you are here from Beckie's blog, you are in the right spot!  If not, head over to The Twinery blog to get started!

Today I'm showcasing products from the Oriental Chic collection and had so much fun playing with these great papers and embellishments!

For my first two projects, I chose to make identical tags using one of the foil papers.  All I did was cut out a strip of two of the fun images on a 12x12 sheet and they fit perfectly on the medium kraft tags!  I layered a sticker fro the collection and tiny tag stamped with an Asian motif and font atop the tag and finished it with some sparkle twine.


My final project is a card I made with another of the foil papers - can you tell I love the foil papers on kraft?! :)  I accidentally cut the top of one of the stickers when trying to open the package (I get a little rambunctious with scissors when I have new products to play with...) but found I could tuck the cut edge against the edge of the patterned paper and nobody is the wiser!  

I layered one of the wooden embellishments across the card that I stamped with the same Asian motifs and fonts as I used with the tags and finished the card with some gold gems and sparkle twine.

Thanks so much for visiting today!  Next up is Melaina.  Be sure to comment along the way for the fabulous prizes up for grabs!
