Witchy Decor

I spent some time with a friend creating some magical Halloween witch's hats.

I had the paper mache hats in my stash - likely bought on clearance a couple of years ago. We painted them black and then started embellishing. I bought some sparkly supplies at the dollar store and my friend brought the beautiful spider web fabric.

I added a velvet spider to the web, with black tulle encircling the hat to give even more of a "web" look.

I added my hat to my little Halloween display in the entry.

Enter...if you dare!

It's been months and months since I've given my blog some attention. We have been so busy working on the house - we had the master bathroom remodeled, painted nearly every room in the house, and built a new home theater. It's coming along, but we still have more to do.

I did take a little crafty time to work on Halloween projects. I'm participating in Vintage Dragonfly's Halloween Paper Bag Album swap. Here are the pages I created.

The cover features a haunted house image, along with a scary twosome, inviting you to come inside.

I went with a theme of a coven of witches who inhabit this haunted house.

I used several vintage images, and added lots of sparkle. What's Halloween magic without sparkle?

I also created sparkly witchy tags to go inside (but forgot to take a picture before I shipped them).

I'll share my partners' projects as soon as I receive them.

Lovey Dovey

Happy Valentine's Day!

Here is another card that I made for this sweetest of days.

I again used felt, lace, and fabric for the background. I added a paper doily and an image that I've saved for years that I cut from an old calendar. I knew I'd have a use for it some day!

I made my first attempt at a fabric heart/pin cushion. I'm pretty darn pleased with myself at how it turned out.

I used all vintage fabrics, with the exception of the muslin ruffle.

The embroidered piece I used at the bottom inspired the colors and fabrics.

I added sequins, beads, and old buttons to give it some more character.

And I searched through my stash for the perfect piece of tatting.

The hardest part was stitching the front and back together with the ruffled trim. I think I need to watch some video tutorials to get the hang of it a little better before I attempt another one.

Love Is in the Air

I managed to make just a few Valentine crafts this year, including this card that I sent to a special Valentine.

I started with bright pink felt for the background and layered on fabric and lace scraps and a sheet music printed fiber paper.

The images are from Graphic 45 - the Sweet Sentiments and A Place in Time collections.

I typed a sentiment on my vintage typewriter and added glitter to all the flowers.
I hope your Valentine is thinking sweet thoughts of you on Friday!

Valentine ATCs

I'm participating in a Valentine ATC swap, so I got busy in my craft room with the beautiful Graphic 45 Sweet Sentiments and Place in Time collections.

Here are the ATCs I created.

They all follow the same design layout, but each is unique.

I used the adorable images from the Graphic 45 papers.

I layered the images on vintage sheet music and other pretty papers.

It was a great way to use up some scraps.

And each got an ample does of glitter!
