Paper Therapy Challenge #4

Happy Monday!! Welcome to another challenge from Paper Therapy. This week's challenge is to make a project using only scraps. It's harder than you think!! Luckily I had some scraps that matched each other and I was able to make this cute little purse. It's for a classmate of my son's. He was invited to her b~day party. She was having an earring party. Which meant everyone had to give her earrings as her gift. What a cute way to wrap them up in this cute little purse. I'd love for you to join us for the challenge this week! It's such a fun group of crafters!!! If you have yet to check us out come on over.

Halloween cards

These cute little criss cross cards are for my monthly card swap group over at Paper Therapy. I love making criss cross cards. Especially for Halloween. They are just so fun!

For instructions on how to make these cards you can view this post here. The papers I used I bought from a kit that a lady put together at a recent scrapbooking retreat I went to.

So I don't even know what lines they are from. *sorry*
I'll be posting more fun Halloween projects all this week.
So check back often!!

Halloween Treat Bags

Hi Guys!! I have some fun Halloween projects to share with you all and I'll be posting them all week long. So be sure to check back often. Or better yet become a follower and you'll know the minute I upload something new.

Today's Halloween project are these cute little paper bags. All I did was stamp in black ink this cute bat and decorated the fron with patterned paper and some embellies. I punched 2 holes with my crop a dile at the top and pulled the ribbon through. The edge detail on top was super easy. Just cut about 1/4" off the top and put the front and back in your border punch at the same time. And punch!

Here are all of them.
These are going to be for my Nieces & Nephews.
