Happy Halloween!!


I made this little Halloween decor for my craft room with that same little which digi from Whimsy Stamps. I placed it on a shelf with my little pumpkin plant from Trader Joes.


I used these little black canvases I bought a while back at Michael’s. I was going to have my Silhouette cut it out closer but now I like it. It’s kind of like she has a little glow around her while she’s walking.

She gave me a bunch of her flags when she moved and I love changing them. Notice all the leaves on the ground and still on the trees. I finally caved this year and yeterday I hired someone to remove them all. I just didn’t feel like spending time I could be crafting or with family raking leaves. It takes a long time to do our yard and I look forward to the sound of their leaf blowers taking my worries away!

Happy Halloween everyone!



Tag Tuesday: #1 – A Little Witch


Today I am starting a new blog series called, “Tag Tuesday”. Right now tags seem to be another hot item and I thought I might as well join in since I have plenty of product to spare!

I will aim to post a tag each Tuesday.  I say aim because sometimes, holidays and my boys being home sick might prevent this from occurring but I am going to give it my best shot.

With Halloween fast approaching I thought I would use that as a theme for my tags.  I have a shelf in my craft room that I have been placing all of my fall and Halloween paper craft items and these cuties are on there now.


This first tag I made with some non-traditional Halloween colors. But I liked how it came out.

Ingredients for this first tag:

  • My Minds Eye Collectable  6×6 Paper Pad “Unforgetable”
  • Kraft cardstock for the base
  • Whimsy Stamps digi called “Halloween Witchy Girl”
  • Some sequins from my stash
  • and letter stickers
  • twine
  • Copics to color the little witch


The beauty of using digis are that you can resize them to fit whatever size project you are working on. But I recently discovered something amazing too. I can flip them horizontally in my Silhouette before printing and their orientation is different. See how she is facing different ways on each tag? But this is only one file. So that is something you definitely can not do with a clear or rubber stamp image.

The ingredients for the second tag:

  • Pebbles “Thirty One” 6×6 paper pad
  • Black cardstock for the base
  • the same digi from Whimsy Stamps
  • twine
  • and of course my Copics to color her up

I had fun making them and they will help put a dent in my paper stash and scraps since it is a small surface to work on.  Not sure what I will make next week but be sure to take a peek and see what I will make.

Have a blessed day and keep crafting!
