Halloween Card :)

Hey everyone, I hope you have been having an awesome week! :) I wanted to share a card I made, which was inspired by Amy, youtube name PrairiePaperandInk.

I have been enjoying her Halloween series and I love how she adds so many layers, pattern paper, the ribbon, buttons etc. So I came up with this card. I really like how it came out :) The pattern paper is DCWV Ghost and Goblins mat stack. The stamps are from inkadinkado and then I used a wide black ribbon and did a running stitch with orange thread and gathered it up to make the ruffles. I think it turn out pretty good seeing as it is a little out of my normal zone, but it is always fun to try new ideas :) Ok as always have a great day and Happy Crafting!!!

Sewing Project :)

Hi everybody, I hope you are having a great Saturday :) I wanted to share a project I made yesterday... I sewed a small bag, and for the first time I sewed in a zipper... Now I am NOT the greatest seamstress at all... but I was pretty proud of myself... I mean I guess it could have been worse :) I got the inspiration for this small bag from Lollyrot7 over on youtube. I bought the material from walmart at $2 a yard and I bought 1/2 a yard and there is enough material to make at least 3 bags... so with thread and zipper, this bag only cost me around $2.50... I would say not a bad deal... I am planning on using this bag for my camera and what not :) So as always Have a great day and Happy Crafting!
