Halloween Card - Double Double Toil and Trouble

For my project I created a fun Halloween card and box envelope.
My design paper is from StampinUp












Embellishments are from my stash. The challenge from YPP is to make a project of your choice using one of the Hocus Pocus Cat images for a chance to win one free collection from their site. Tim Coffey's sisters are now selling their adorable digi artwork on a new website ILoveDigis.com.




























Here's my YouTube video showing the process.



Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you all a fabulous day!

Goodbye Summer, Hello Autumn


Fall is upon us here in Beautiful BC. As I sit here looking at out the window watching the sun shine it's way through the tree branches and noticing an occasional leaf float from a tree to the ground I'm feeling nostalgic. I can't help but think back to my youth, walking home from school and hearing the crunching of leaves beneath my shoes. I really do love this time of year.

Top ten why I love Autumn!

1. Seasonal Superfoods
2. Halloween
3.Thanksgiving
4. Bathingsuit season is over.
5. No Humidity
6. Warm fires
7. Hockey
8. New Styles
9. New Starbucks flavored coffee
10. My favorite shows are back on TV!!

How about you: Why is this your favorite time of year?

As always, thanks for visiting by blog ♥

Come, Little Leaves
by George Cooper

“Come, little leaves,”
Said the wind one day,
“Come over the meadows
With me, and play;
Put on your dresses
Of red and gold;
Summer is gone,
And the days grow cold.”

Soon as the leaves
Heard the wind’s loud call,
Down they came fluttering,
One and all;
Over the meadows
They danced and flew,
Singing the soft
Little songs they knew.

Dancing and flying
The little leaves went;
Winter had called them
And they were content-
Soon fast asleep
In their earthy beds,
The snow laid a soft mantle
Over their heads.

Christmas Card Challenge for September

Hello dear friends!

It's time to play again with our Christmas Card challenge over at yourpaperpantry.ning.com with Linda Lapotka as our hostess.

We've been making 5 Christmas cards each month since January and every month has been a different theme or challenge.

Christmas time is just around the corner now, and I have at least 50+ cards finished!

The challenge for September was to use a Christmas embossing folder. Good thing I have 2 embossing folders on my shelf! LOL!

Here is what I came up with.

I used the Provocraft embossing folder called Christmas Countdown.
Then inked the edges with Stampology ink pad in Ruby.
Then rubbed white gesso lightly over the entire surface with my finger.
Hot glued on some pretty lace trim.
Stamped 'Season's Greeting" and added little button embellies.























Thanks for visiting!

Christmas Card Challenge

For the month of August I have created another set of  5 Christmas cards. I am a member of a crafting community called Your Paper Pantry. yourpaperpantry.ning.com Membership fees are $1.00 a month. I joined a group called "Christmas All Year Card Challenge" we are challenged each month to make 5 Christmas/Holiday cards so when the season rolls around, we have all our cards ready to address, stamp and send. The challenge for August was to use sequins or brads on our cards. So here's what I came up with.

The Christmas tickets were purchased from www.cuddlybuddly.com
On the sites navigation bar at the top of the page click on 'Digital Crafts' and then click on "Card Sentiments" you'll find a wonderful selection of printable sheet sentiments to use again and again. And... very affordable!

The vintage girl images are from my stash and are available for you to save and print to your computer at the bottom of this post. From my printer settings, I set it to print wallet size and nine per sheet of 81/2 x 11 cardstock, 

Thanks for stopping by and please leave a comment, I would love to hear from you!

Free Printable - Jar Tags

Hello all my sweet followers! Long time no hear or see! It's hot, sunny and it's summertime and the beach takes presedence over craft time!  LOL I hope everyone is having a great summer so far!!

Debbie over at Ephemera's Vintage Garden has an adorable freebie this week. It's called the 'Jar Of Hearts Tags' It's a sheet of shabby chic jar tags, made to coordinate with the 'Love Is Chic' collection.  You could use them as labels or gifts tags, or to embellish journals, greetings and scrapbook layouts. They are super sweet and I can't wait to print and cut them out.

I have a ton of lace that has been sitting in drawers for much too long and I thought wrapping the lace around the tags and displaying them on my shelf would be a better alternative. And oh so pretty to look at!
I glued the tags back to back to give them extra strength. Pretty right!?



Click HERE to visit Debbie's web site to get your free jar tags! Thank you so much Debbie! ♥
