BOO!

Today I’m sharing another Halloween project I made for The Crafty Scrapper – a Halloween tag, perfect to tie on a treat bag for a special little ghoul.

I started with a black cardstock base. Then I added a piece of white cardstock that I inked with Distress Inks, embossed, and finally sewed with random black stitches.

I added a vintage postcard image from the idea-ology Halloween Ephemera Pack and a cute little witch from my collection. The bat is from Blue Fern Studios. I inked it and then covered it in black Stickles.

The pumpkin is a Tim Holtz die, as well as the embossing folder I used to give it more texture. Miss Kitty is another image from my stash.

I added dyed cheesecloth and preserved moss at the bottom, and a custom-dyed ribbon to the top.

Tricks and Treats

Today I’m sharing my latest design team project for The Crafty Scrapper – a Halloween ATC holder that uses several items from the new Tim Holtz Idea-ology Halloween collection.

I started with two paper lunch bags that I folded to create the interior pockets. Then I attached them together with by stitching on two burlap “hinges.” I decorated the front with papers from the Halloween Paper Stash.

I added some cheesecloth that I sprayed with orange and black Maya Mist (from Maya Road), a cluster of flowers, and an idea-ology Crypt Cameo. A black tulle bow gives a spiderweb effect.

A Penny for Your Thoughts

I’m sharing my latest project for The Crafty Scrapper design team. I made this mini book of quotes using some of the beautiful papers from the Bo Bunny “Penny Emporium” collection. I also used a few pieces from the Ken Oliver “Hometown” collection.

Let’s get started on a tour of my mini book, shall we?

First off, I made the book using a few pieces of recycled chipboard from an empty cereal box. I covered the chipboard with some cardstock, and then started to make my signatures (the pages). Tip: You can do a quick Internet search to learn some very easy techniques for book binding. Then you can make your own books, in any size you want, and upcycle all that chipboard and cardboard that you’ve been throwing away.
