Halloween crafting

Hello everyone.

Hope you all are having a wonderful week. I have been crazy busy in my craft room. I have been working on Halloween.

I created a mini album made up of wood pieces, 2 chunky charms,  altered some clothes pins and made a card. I am not a card maker at all, I am horrible at it, but have been wanting to make some so I thought no more excuses.

Here are the pictures:

Have a wonderful weekend and Happy Spooky crafting.

In the Holiday Spirit

Hello everyone, I know it has been a long time since I post.

I hope you all have been having a wonderful summer and ready for the Fall and Holiday seasons. I know I am.

Here are some of the layouts I have been working on. I found the images online and knew that I wanted them to paper piece. I have had so much fun with the images.

Hope you all like them as much as I liked piecing them.

I started with a Fall one.

Then I made this Halloween one that I think is my favorite.

 Love her hat. I used glitter paper and added stars to it. The original image had a cat on her lap, but it was not looking right whenever I tried piecing it so I decided to add a pumpkin instead. I am still on the hunt for a sticker cat or a cat that might look nice to add and take the pumpkin out.

Then I made this Christmas one.

Don't you just love her foot side ways and the pom pom on her hat. I used a large pom pom from Joanns, cut it in half and glued it down on a circle cardstock.

This is the next one I did, very Spring like. I used the DCWV paper stack called Collage Art. It is a beautiful paper pack. I was hoarding it for the right time and this girl image was perfect for it.

 Don't you just love those big brown eyes. I used chalk. The lady bug she is holding I purchased at a chinese warehouse that sells party supplies. They had a bin with little things like this for cakes and cupcakes and everything was 10 for 1.00. The package brought 6 inside and I could not believe how perfect it was for this layout, the size of the eyes match hers.

Her hair was the most difficult part to create. I was more than 2 hours making it and could not get it the way I wanted until I threw it all away and started over. At the end I think the curls came out great. Don't you just love the flowers in her hair. So Spring and girly like. I am sure we all have put flowers in our hairs one way or another when we were younger.

Lastly, Oh Christmas Tree. She is holding a garland in her hands with some small metal Christmas ornaments. I bought them at a yard sale last year for 25 cents. I thought they were perfect for this layout. I cut the tree and the title using my cricut. I decorated the tree with bling from my stash. The presents are stickers by Jolee.

I also used chalk on her for the eyes as well.  I think the big eyes make these images so cute. I also love the feet she designs side ways.

Sorry for the long post. I hope you all enjoyed it and please leave a comment telling me which one is your favorite.
