Sadly It's Time

Hey scrappers...with a heavy heart I have an announcement to make. Sadly it's time for me to take a break from blogging. I found out this last week that my husband and I are moving. With that comes many of hours of packing, of which I am not looking forward to but it must be done. And even sadder news, I STARTED PACKING UP MY CRAFT ROOM YESTERDAY! I have been putting this off all week because it means I have to stop crafting and that breaks my heart.

Another reason for my temporary leave of absence is that I no longer blog for the reason I wanted to start.

Enough of the sad news, on to the good! The good news is I still have some photos of about 5 Halloween projects that I will try to post by the end of the month. Hopefully by mid-November I will be settled in enough to start crafting and blogging again.

Until then, Happy Scrapping! SB

Halloween Meets the Flu

Hey crafters! So I woke up this morning and when I tried to wish my husband a good morning...nothing came out, not a sound! The flu bug that I caught earlier this week has finally hit its peak. So until I start feeling a little better I won't be adding any posts. However, I am feeling well enough to type so I've been writing my posts and then as soon as I feel better I will make my projects and posts pictures. Thank you for being so patient with me as I heal. Happy Halloween! SB

31 Days of Halloween Day 1

Where did the time go? Today is already October 1st! So here is the first of many projects to come! Here is a Halloween project I did for a swap on Swap-bot. I made some cute little Halloween tags. The tags I used are size 2 3/8 x 4 3/4. They are just the right side to decorate one side and add a wallet sized photo to the other.
  1. Cover both sides of the tag with patterned paper.I put adhesive on the tag and lined up the tag to the paper to make sure that the entire tag was covered.

  2. Ink the edges of the tag for a worn look.

  3. Embellish with stickers.

  4. loop ribbon through the loop.

  5. Add a photo or journaling to the back.

I received the idea for tomorrow's project in the mail on Thursday. I joined a swap on Swap-bot called Halloween Inspiration where we had to make a little Halloween project and send a kit to our partner so she could make the project. Well, I'm not going to give the project away just yet but it will certainly light the way when trick-or-treaters come bounding up your sidewalks!
Until then Happy....Halloween! SB
