Witchin' You a Happy Halloween

Oooh we're SO close to my favorite holiday: Halloween! And Paper Issues is celebrating in style with the new Witchin' You a Happy Halloween issue starting today and running through November 9th. Link up: witches, costumes, anything having to do with Halloween, spooky stories, use spook-tacular embellishments, spider webs, create a spooky background maybe using mesh, a stencil, border punches or cheesecloth, document happy times or things that make you happy (chocolate, coffee concoction, family), all about you pages, use SRM products (stickers, borders, bags, etc.)

I created these fun treat bags with products from this issue's sponsor, SRM Stickers! I used kraft bags, round Halloween stickers and many strips of sentiment stickers.The paper is from Simple Stories.

I'm pretty sure my kids' little friends will love these fun bags filled with chocolate covered pretzels, candy, stickers, tattoos, and a bouncy ball. 

Link up and LINK BACK to Paper Issues to be eligible to win a goodie bag of SRM products.  Link up as much as you like, both old and new! You could even be featured on the Paper Issues blog or social media.  Come on... I know you have Halloween projects up your sleeves!

Adding a Little Dazzle!

Hey everyone!  I'm wrapping up a week long swap between Fancy Pants Designs and Add a Little Dazzle today and we'd love to see you visit.

Here's just part of my project, using the Fancy Pants True Friend collection and an embossed metal sheet from Add a Little Dazzle. These things are cool!

You're Sew Cute, You Keep Me In Stitches

It's time for a brand new issue at Paper Issues and this time we're joining up with one of my favorites: May Arts! You really can never have enough ribbon, am I right??

May Arts generously sent me some trims to work with and I created this fall banner to decorate my fireplace:

The paper is Crate Paper DIY Shop and it has that neutral rustic look that coordinates perfectly with the lace and other trims I chose and gives the project that autumnal look.

I cut the pennants with my Silhouette, stitched the lace around the tops of them, and strung the handmade tassels between them.
