Fall Treat

I have a treat project to share today.  I created an oversized tag in a Fall theme using products from my stash.  The candy tube is from Annie's Paper Boutique and I filled it with some candy.  I had the small flourishes left over from another project so I adhered them to the base of my tag and popped up the pumpkin.
The flag was hand cut and a sentiment from the Scrappy Moms "Mini Messages" stamp set was added. A second sentiment was added from the Scrappy Moms "Dancing In Circles" stamp set with a coordinating button in the center.  I tucked a couple of leaves behind the ribbon and curled some Orange Truffle Trendy Twine and added it to the leaves.  A smile twine bow was tied around the ribbon, the pumpkin and wrapped around the tag.

Craftin Desert Diva's Design Day

Hello, today is my design day over at Craftin Desert Diva's and I have a fun project to share using the newly released Frightfully Cute stamp set.  This stamp set is perfect for those Halloween themed projects.
I cut the container using the Wrap It Up cartridge and then used punches for the Jack-O-Lantern, the web, the fence and the 2 small pumpkins.  The tombstones and tiny bat are embellishments from my stash.  I added a bat brad and a clothespin with a button to hold my tag in place.  The tag was stamped with a sentiment from the Frightfully Cute stamp set.  Some ribbon and Trick or Treat Trendy Twine was added as a finishing touch.
Here's a closer look at the entire stamp set, you can purchase the set here along with the rest of the September release.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Blast from the Past

Today I am playing along with the "Blast from the Past" challenge over at My Craft Spot.  The challenge is to pick a favorite project using My Craft Spot products created some time in the past.  
My project is a single page 12x12 layout for which I used the My Craft Spot Big Words Metal Dies. The title of my layout was cut from the dies, I just love the intricate cuts.

Craftin Desert Diva's "Fall" Linky Party

Welcome to another Craftin Desert Diva's Linky Party.  The theme for this linky party is Fall.  For my project I created a double page 12x12 layout.
My layout was created using many items from my stash including the mat which was left over from another project.  I added a Fall themed card with a tag also from my stash and embellished it with some leaves from my Fiskars punch.  Some Totally Kraft Trendy Twine was also used throughout the page. The sentiment was stamped on a hand cut flag from the Craftin Desert Diva's Big Words stamp set.
We have some awesome sponsors for this linky party:
Craftin Desert Diva's - one stamp set
Miriam's Crafting Supplies - $5 credit
Little Scraps of Heaven Designs - $15 in files
KBD - $25
Stop by Craftin Desert Diva's to check out all of the inspiring projects from the design team and to join in on the linky party.
