I am popping in this sunny Sunday morning to share a Halloween card I made last weekend.

I used a sheet of the 6x6 paper from Authentique Thrilling line.

I trimmed it down to fit my 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card made from black cardstock. I cut some tags out of some pattern papers from the same tablet and adhere it to the right side of my card. I then tied a sheer orange ribbon around the top, tied a double looped bow, topped it with a triple looped bow made from orange and black twine. And I topped it off with a black button.

I added a cardstock chipboard sentiment and there you have it!

One last Halloween project to share. I don't know what you would call this - a matchbook photo mini? It does look like a book of matches decorated!

It has a magnetic closure. Flip it open and unfold it and you get lots of photo mats,
and pockets to save little bits and bobs!

I used the Hocus Pocus paper line by Echo Park to make this cute, mini Matchbook photo album.
Wishing you a beautiful week ahead. Thanks for stopping in!

Halloween Night

It's been one of those lazy days. I just went outside to carry out a bag of garbage and OH MY-What a beautiful Sunday this has turned out to be!

I'm sharing the last of the Halloween themed mini albums I've made. This one uses the Doodlebug Oct 31st paper line. This album measures 6x6 with a 2 3/4" spine.

 Every thing you see here is all part of the Oct 31st paper pack. Doily is from my stash.

Hand made tag using the Stampin Up tag topper punch

                                             Every page has a side pocket for a photo mat.

                                             Waterfall folio is held down magnetically.

Pocket tags

spots for journaling...

This has a button pull and folds down for 2 more photo's. Held shut by a magnet.

That's it from me for now. Working on a few more Halloween cards before I pack it all away and pull out the Christmas goodies!
Have a wonderful week ahead.

Valentine in October?

Another mini album to share today. Actually I have two, but one is a Valentine mini album that I had started in January this year but unfortunately it had been set aside for other reasons unbeknownst to me! I did finally finish it so that it could be raffled off in our United Way campaign at work which was held weeks ago.

Inside first page

2nd pages

lots of photo mats and spots to journal on

lots of reds, pinks and blacks

I used an older Authentique paper line along with all the stickers and embellishments that came with the pack. Pink, red and black cardstock from my stash along with the ribbons, flowers, pearls and clips used.
I think I will hold off sharing the 2nd album with you until next week....until then,
