Halloween Cards Round 2

So I haaaad to go get a couple sheets of new Halloween paper to round out my card collection. The patterned paper on each of these two cards is from Heidi Grace Jeepers Creepers; Dots and Decor Stripe.

The first one was punched with a Marvy Giga Scallop Punch and embellished with two flowers from my stash. I had to spray paint the black one, a super quick and easy trick. It's hard to tell in the photo, but the flower "frame" is on pop dots so it stands up just a wee bit.

The second card is super simple and easy to mass produce. The notch punch is from Stampin Up and is topped with an amber rhinestone. Each card has a white mat on the inside for writing.

Halloween Cards

Im a little slow getting started on Halloween this year but here are two cards that I recently finished. The first was created using an image I found on Google Images. The paper is from my scrap pile so I no longer know who it is by and the notch punch is from Stampin Up. Im new to stitching so dont look too closely. ;)

The second card was also made using an image from Google Images. PP is from Basic Grey and flourish stamp by Autumn Leaves inked in Lavendar ink from Stampabilities. I added a touch of glue and sparkles on top of the ink for a little extra glitz. The inside of the card reads "If the shoe fits..."

Country Living Fair 2007

This past weekend, my mom, aunt, and I all went to Morrow OH for the 2nd annual Country Living Fair. What a fun time we had! Aside from the three hour drive and the two and a half hour wait to get into the place, we all decided it was well worth it. It was an absolutely beautiful day which made the long wait more bearable. Although the fair seemed smaller than we were expecting, it was made up of quality vendors with wonderful crafts and goods. “Support the American Crafter” was a theme we saw often and we couldn’t be happier or agree more.

There were several wonderful booths and some very nice people but I did have a few favorites. I absolutely fell in love with The Farm Chicks, based out of Mead, WA. It was here that I bought these fabulous vintage charms, hand made of course, out of vintage wallpaper and game pieces.

I even thought their booth was just too cute. Check out their fancy banner and clever displays!

Another favorite was Lola B's Boutique, in true shabby chic fashion.

Im kicking myself for not spending more time at this fanciful place, Bloomsbury Loft.

And to sum it all up, here are a few random shots taken at the fair, just for ideas sake.


Hello, and welcome to my little spot on the web! I like to dabble in a little bit of this and a little bit of that, so you're likely to find a variety of things posted here. I love paper crafting, which will probably be the source of many of my posts, but you never know. Hopefully you will be enlightened, inspired, or just entertained by my postings. May this blog be the beginning of many wonderful things to come, for all of us involved. Thanks for stopping by!
