Hello everyone and Happy Wednesday! Today I am participating in Wacky Wednesdays with my friend Paula at More than Favors– where we were supposed to make a Halloween project Since, I’ve been on a wreath kick, I made another wreath–but, this time for Halloween. To see my fabric wreaths click here or here to see my crayon wreath!  Well, of course I wanted to do something different- so today my wreath is made from the DCWV Midnight Spell stack I’ve made paper wreaths before, using strips of looped paper and with paper punch flowers— but, never one like this I really do love it- and it looks so festive on my door!   I also forgot to mention in the video, that I inked the edges of the fan-folded rosettes after they were all put together, with chalk ink...

It’s another AWESOME Stamptastic Tuesday today!! Are you ready for it? Today we are featuring the Just Beachy stamp set   I wanted to show that you could use this stamp set for something that was less summer and more boy.   th sailboat on here would make some darling It’s a Boy cards, wouldn’t it? I chose to pair it with the Oh Boy stamp set, to make a fun little ‘love’ card     I stamped the image 3x- once on brown patterned paper, once on blue hounds toot paper, and once on green paper.  Then I cut and pieced the pieces together  I LOVE stamping this way!! All inspiration for this card came from the ribbon I used on the card.   Be sure to check out Paula’s and Meriah’s posts to see what they’ve done...

Anthropologie inspired Bib Necklace

I’ve been loving those fabric flower necklaces and headbands that you see everywhere nowadays!  You see them on babies, teens and grown women. Since, I had fabric left over from my fabric wreaths, I thought I’d use it to make some quick flowers for a necklace….though after it was all said and done…I think I might wear it in my hair 😉 Here’s the video on how to make your own bib necklace!   Though, I put these on one necklace- you could easily split them up and make beautiful headbands, brooches, barrettes, or embellishments for a scrapbook page  You could also sew them onto a sweater or a t-shirt to make it “new” again! If there is a certain flower you want me to show you how to make in a tutorial- just let me know, and I...
