Autumn Cards

Hello friends!
I found some time to play in my craft room today. I was feeling in the mood to craft with all the beautiful Fall colors that are just starting to really turn here in our area. So I picked out Doodlebug's Happy Harvest and Imaginisce Fall line and created these cards.
Both of these lines really complement
each other and have similar colors.

I am so addicted to adding "stitch" lines around my card
 using my favorite Signo white gel pen.

This is my favorite season. I love Fall or Autumn.
 I usually say both. Not quite sure which I prefer. Lol

This is also a great time to pull out the rolls of brown twine.
 Makes the perfect accent to Fall crafts.

And I finished off my crafty day with a tag!
I used Ripe Persimmon, Peeled Paint and
Vintage Photo Distress Inks to create my tag background.
The bow is seam binding which I dyed with Peeled Paint Distress Stain.
Wishing you a lovely day, Lindsey

Playing With My Ink Pads

Hello friends!
What a busy month this has been so far,
 but I guess this is what we have to get used to from now until Christmas!
This week I have been enjoying an online class taught by Tim Holtz.
I've only managed to find a few minutes to play, but have learned so much this week!
I thought I would share this quick little tag I created tonight using Distress Inks and my fav Tim stamp set. I also used Tim's new Distress Glitter which has quickly become a new favorite in my craft room. They come in 24 colors and look more like a vintage glass glitter. I have to admit, I own all 24 colors!
Wishing you a lovely day, Lindsey

Thanksgiving Mini Album

Hello friends!
A sweet Thanksgiving album that I made last Fall.

One of the best parts about this time of year is the crafting!

I created a Thanksgiving themed album using the gorgeous Thankful line by Authentique.

I really enjoyed making this one last project, before I switch gears and get into Christmas crafting.

This paper line was perfect for my stash of vintage Thanksgiving postcards!
I printed a few to add to this book.

Have a lovely day dear friends, Lindsey

Fall Mini Album

Hello friends!
Are you enjoying this Fall season?
I am! It's my favorite time of the year!
Let me ask you this, do you call it Fall or Autumn in your house?
Either way it's a lovely season!

I adore the vibrant colors of the trees, apple cider, cooler weather and the excitement in the air of the upcoming holiday season!

I created this paperbag album themed around my favorite season using the Harvest Lane collection by Simple Stories.

I filled this book with lots of fall colored flowers,
 leaves and brown glittered swirls.

Have a beautiful day dear friends, Lindsey

Halloween Mini Album

Hello friends!
One last Halloween project to share with you from last year. I purchased this Halloween line by October Afternoon called, Witch Hazel to make a mini album.
Oh, it was the cutest paper!!

I had so much fun with the cute little witches and lovely color scheme of this line.

I mixed in a few other paper lines and added lots of flowers!

This is an 8x8 size paper bag album, which I had never done before. It was so big, that I don't think I'll be making another one anytime soon! It had 16 pages!
It's a monster!

If you are looking for paper to use for your new Halloween photos I highly recommend this collection!

Have a wonderful day, Lindsey

Halloween Cigar Box

Hello friends!
Here is a project I created last summer.
 It's a cigar box that I altered and added a wooden house piece to the top.
The house was found at my local craft store and wooden cigar boxes can easily be picked up at cigar shops or antique shops/thrift stores.

I used Graphic 45's Happy Haunting paper line. Cutting out lots of small pieces and layering over this box.

In each of the 4 corners I've added cut out stand ups to give this a more 3d effect.

I just adored this paper line! Such fun to work with. It's been awhile since I created an altered project and this was a lot of fun!

Here's a couple close ups of the box.
I removed the hardware to adhere the paper across the front of the box, and reattached it later.

For the inside of the box,
 I decorated the lid and created a mini album to fit inside.

This album was so chunky, it just barely fit!

The antique style of this paper line was so easy to work with! I just loved the polka dots and spiders paper!

If you have any scrappy/crafty questions, don't hesitate to ask!

I am getting ready to spend this weekend at a scrapbooking retreat!
I've been busy packing this week, getting my craft room slightly more organized!!

Have a wonderful day, Lindsey

Halloween Mini Album

Hello friends!
Well, the holiday season is almost upon us. Especially for us crafters!
I started making Halloween themed mini albums to get in Holiday mood.

For this album I used Authentique's Enchanted paper line mixed with a few stickers and die cuts from Echo Park's Chillingsworth Manor line.

I pulled out my favorite Martha Stewart spider web
punches and started creating.

At Michaels, I found a few fun Halloween stickers by K & Company. This layered sticker that says creepy was part of a fun set of border stickers, as well as the glittered title that I used on the front of the album.

I also used brown ink to brush across a few of the light orange
roses to give them a more aged and distressed look.

Have a wonderful day, Lindsey

Sweet Girly Mini Album

Hello friends!

A cute mini album to share with you today!

I created this album using Echo Park's For The Record 2 Tailored collection.

I just loved the colors! All the pinks and reds together is on of my favorite combinations!!

I pulled out my favorite Martha Stewart Border Lace punches and lots of flowers to dress up this album.

I also found these lovely butterfly stickers by Petaloo with beaded details to add more whimsy to the album.

This deep edge lace punch by Martha Stewart is quickly becoming one of my favorites!!!

Have a beautiful day, Lindsey
