Halloween Revisited!!

This week, we had to make a project using the Halloween items we got in our packet of goodies from Paper Vineyard. This card is what I came up with. Most of the supplies I used can be found at Paper Vineyard. I only added a few spider web stickers out of my stash of leftovers from Halloweens past.

I learned how to make this Diamond-fold card from a video I saw on Creations with Christina. She is an awesome instructor when it comes to teaching someone a new technique. So, THANKS to Christina.

Recycle challenge at Paper Vineyard

Hi All,

This weeks challenge at Paper Vineyard was a recycle theme. I must say, that this challenge really stumped me. It took me the longest time to decide what to recycle and what to make with it.

My keepsake tin began life as a steel-cut oatmeal container. I covered it with Bazzill paper and then embellished with silver glitter paper. I used an EK Success border punch on the edges. The "Treasured Moments" words were custom cut by Grapevine Designs at Paper Vineyard. I colored them with silver ink. The key on the top is from Bazzill and the silver trim on the top is from Teresa Collins. The ribbon and bling are from my stash. And can you believe it....no Cricut used for this project!

Hope you like it. Have a great week!

Back to School with Graphic 45

This is back to school week at Paper Vineyard using the Back to School paper from Graphic 45. Can I say that I love love love Graphic 45!! I made this 8x8 layout using this line. The inside of the frame has a slide out paper to mount a picture. I didn't have my granddaughters picture yet from her first day so I made it customizable. The Mini Composition book was made with the scraps I had left from the layout. I added some roses, buttons, and lettering that I had in my stash. You can find the Graphic 45 paper lines at Paper Vineyard.

Don't forget to get into Paper Vineyard and cast your vote for the best mini book from last weeks post. Remember that you as the customer also have the chance to win a great prize. The store is located in Chandler Arizona on Alma School Road between Ray Rd and Chandler Blvd. Stop in, vote, and do some shopping. They carry some awesome products.

Have a great rest of the week. Thanks for looking and let me know what you think. I love to read your comments.
