Cheesecloth Ghost by Jamie L.

Friday, October 23, 2015

Hey everyone,
Jamie here with a cute halloween ghost.

The ghost is pretty easy to make and super cute when done. All you need is some black felt, cheese cloth, liquid starch, scissors, hot glue, and 5/8" red wired satin ribbon. You will also need something for a form to sculpt ur ghost (i used a balloon and a vase).

You soak the cheese cloth in the liquid starch than drap it around a form or base to make the shape. Let dry over night. Remove from base/form. Cut eyes out of felt and hot glue into place. Make a bow with your ribbon and hot glue into place. All done!

Thabks for stoppin by and have a great day!

Pumpkins! by Melissa Craig

Friday, October 16, 2015

Good Morning!  Melissa here with a fun project that is cute and so easy to make!

I like Pinterest like a lot of us do.  There are some pretty great ideas on there and it can be a wonderful source of inspiration.  I was just perusing some pictures on there when I came across these pretty pumpkins someone made out of scrap pieces of wood.  You can find it here.  Well, I'm a papercrafter - not a woodcrafter, but I really wanted to make these so I set off to do my version.

Using a cut file by Lori Whitlock for the boxes and the stem from a different cut file, I created my pieces.  Inked the edges with Spiced Marmalade distress ink.  I then glued these boxes together to create my pumpkins.  I found a pretty fall foliage bunch at that Dollar Store that I cut apart to add to the top and then finished off with Double Face Satin Ribbon - Copper.

I love how these turned out and now they look fantastic on my desk at work.  My son saw them and said "those are Minecraft pumpkins!"

Thank you for stopping by and please feel free to visit me at my blog.

Sparkle Journal by Steph

Friday, October 9, 2015

Good morning everyone, Steph Ackerman here today with an altered journal.

This journal was kind of bland so I covered it with cardstock, added die cuts, a stamped phrase to the center and some rhinestones.  A bland journal turns into a pretty journal. 

Journals are a fun way to use ribbon - tie the ribbon to the rings or completely cover the rings and tie a ribbon as I've done.  And using a wired ribbon means the ribbon holds it's shape.  I've used Four Seasons Wired Sheer Ribbon in Champagne.

Thanks for stopping by today.


Back to the basics by Nicole

Saturday, October 3, 2015

Hello everyone!  Nicole here on the blog today.  Scrapbooking.  So I've been at it for over 10 years now.  I've gone through all kinds of fads and tried to keep up with the latest and greatest.  Lately though I've started trying to get back to the most important things:  the pictures and words.  As much as I like my layers and all the embellishments I also like this simple layout where a piece of ribbon and some buttons are my only embellishing.

I started this layout in Photoshop where I pulled in my photos, typed my title and journaling, and then added some "ribbon".  

Once I was happy with the placement I removed my photos and "ribbon" and printed the text onto white textured card stock.  

I used the wired satin ribbon in Sable and folded it in half to notch the end with some fabric scissors.  I used a little bit of clear glue on both ends to keep the edges from fraying and leave a clean finish.  To attach to my layout I used double sided adhesive. The small finishing touches are some buttons and a little date tag.   

Here is another look at my finished layout.  I'm really happy with the results and love that the pictures and text take center stage while the ribbon and buttons add just a small textile touch.  

The best part of putting together this layout was knowing this moment was recorded and these sweet pictures of my youngest are printed and off the computer. 

Thanks for stopping by the blog today.  Happy Crafting, Nicole
