Halloween Embellishements: Pin Wheels

Thanks for stopping by today as I show off my second Halloween (or any season, really) DIY embellishments! Now if you missed out on number one, DIY photo frames, you can find them here along with the "OG" Youtube Creator, Meg's channel here

Following along with Meg, I decided to move from those fun photo frames over to really fun and super easy pin wheels!! I loved making these and you can really add some variety, as I show you. 

So you can make them any size as a stand alone and then add buttons, gems, sequins, die cuts, ect.. to the middle, or you can add sticks to them to add them to home decor (think cakes, centerpieces, ect..) and they are so very easy to make that you can make a ton of them in no time flat. 

Although I highly recommend watching Meg's video, if you are short on time and are looking for really easy and basic instructions then you can find some here.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you were inspired to head out and create something wonderful. For more tutorials, lessons, and inspiration make sure to head on over to this page.

Sunny Days: Foil Card Set

Welcome back to another "Anything Goes" challenge brought to you by Sunny Day Crafting. A few weeks ago I was cruising around the isles of Tuesday Morning and I came across a bunch of discounted paper crafting supplies, including this wonderful foil paper and a book of vellum sentiments, and could not wait to get crafting.

If you have never been in a Tuesday Morning store, I highly recommend going in and cruising around at least once. It's a discounted variety store and their crafting supply is awesome and super cheap. 

I decided to keep these cards simple because I really wanted to showcase that beautiful purple foil. Following that same rule of thumb, I not only matted the foil layer with a wonderful purple card stock, but I also decided to leave the white backing on the sentiment. 

I hope you enjoyed my projects for today and that you come on over and join us for our Anything Goes challenge. You have until Monday the 26th to come on over and join us.

Creative Knockouts: Winged Wonders

Thanks for stopping by today as we celebrate a brand new Creative Knockouts Challenge! I love playing on this design team and experimenting with coloring different digital stamps from tons of spectacular companies and this week is no exception. Our theme this week is "Winged Wonders" and our fabulous sponsor is Emerald Faeries so make sure to come on over and play along.

For this week I chose to paint/color the Bindie image from Emerald Faeries online store. 

For this card I printed the image onto watercolor paper then got out my inks and pens. I sponged some Tim Holtz Distress ink onto the sky background, then I sponged in the grass. For the image and all the adorable insects I used my alcohol markers and a wet paint brush to blend. 

The rest of the card is pretty basic with some layers and twine wrapped around the card cover. I also carried that blue paper onto both inside flaps to give the card more weight. The "discover" sentiment is fussy cut out of some paper and then popped up using 3-D foam tape. 

Again, our wonderful sponsor this week is Emerald Faeries week and they are offering one lucky winner a $5 gift card to their store so make sure to come on over to Creative Knockouts to play along. 

Happy Crafting!
