Happy Holidays

I'm still making my way through Paper Pumpkin boxes and so, once again, I decided to pull some pieces from one and make a new card only this time I decided to go with a winter holiday card.  I also took the opportunity to play with glitter again because I love it so much.  I like the way it turned out and surprisingly, all but tow of these pieces were pulled from the same kit in the making of the card.

Re-Purposed Halloween Stash

Don't think I forgot about my goal to make 8 1/2" x 11" pages for awhile, I just haven't posted on the blog in a bit is all.  I made this lovely page as a challenge to myself to use scraps and especially as many Halloween themed elements in a way that didn't scream the holiday all over it.  Its a theme that I have way more pieces for than opportunity to use them.  The green polka dot paper and the black "haunted house" re-purposed as just a normal house are both designated Halloween pieces.  I think it still has a bit of a Halloween vibe to it but maybe not as much if I didn't know that it was Halloween stuff.  The pictures taken in the scene shop that I worked in one summer fit the colors well.

THANKS for the Pieces

Recently I have been working on cleaning up my craft room which currently includes going through many of the Paper Pumpkin kits I have piled up that I don't want to do the actual projects for but want to keep the elements from.  I found one that has a ton of these big felt letters that spell "Thanks".  However, I didn't really care for the project that it came with so I decided to try and re-design a simple way I could use the letters on a card that would actually have a chance at being sent someday.  With a some punched scrap paper and a couple of brads strategically placed, this was what I came up with.  Once again, its a super simple card, but I think it suits the bold, over-powering letters nicely.
