Halloween is a time to celebrate for me and I love any excuse to make spooky crafts. Here are some cards I have made so far this year: This one was sent to Switzerland to a dA friend:     I love how the embossing looks on this recycled packing:      

October Daily 2017 begins

October is here! The best month of the year. Lots of you are participating in Inktober as your monthly challenge. I have chosen again to do October Daily started by Serena Bee. I made this album initially, using an Echo Park Paper set I found at Winners: And how could FrankenBerry resist a guest appearance…

DIY Halloween fauxdori

I received some Tree Leather products a while back as a gift and had kept them in the hopes of doing stamped projects with them. When I recently decided that fauxdori / traveller’s notebooks were the way I wanted to go in terms of planning, I broke out the StazOn and got stamping. The first…

Vancouver Halloween Parade & Expo – an experience

Last month I participated in the Vancouver Halloween Parade and Expo as a vendor. Being big in to Halloween, I was happy to learn Vancouver had such an event. I was even happier to be able to participate and sell at my first table. A gathering of like-minded people reveling in spooky October festivities sounded…

October Daily 2016 – results

This year was my first year taking a crack at October Daily (See my previous post here for more details about Serena Bee’s October Daily). I have always enjoyed memory keeping. Keeping a diary as a child led to keeping ticket stubs and photos, then it was amateur smash book-style notebooks and photo albums, which…

Halloween greeting card – punch spider

Hello! I’m here with another Halloween greeting card. This one is many-legged and inspired by FebPaperCrafts. It’s such an adorable card that I had to give it a shot myself! Put down a layer that will show through the punch and work well for your spider body ( I used black, but you could use…

October Daily project (Serena Bee)

Greetings, ghosties. October is almost here and with that comes the lead up to many a person’s favourite holiday – Halloween! Last year I was in Japan for October and I wasn’t going to bring along a whole bunch of crafting supplies. I could however manage to bring a notebook and pens for Inktober. It…

Day Of The Dead greeting card

Hi there! Here is a lovely sugar skull-themed greeting card: I combined an Inkadinkadoo stamp with some Authentique paper to create a Day of the Dead themed greeting card. I chose “Celebrate” as my sentiment because the Day of the Dead is a day of celebration. Looking at this again, I think it needs an…

Halloween greeting card – eyeball shaker

Hey there! I am excited to show you this shaker card I made with Jillibean Soup mason jar shaker card pieces. I am a big fan of shaker cards but these are the first ones I have made. On some of them, I coloured the back of the googly eyes with a red permanent marker…

Halloween mini albums (set #1)

I love looking at mini albums, especially Halloween ones. There is something about the way the orange, green, gold and purple come together with black, kraft and white. I found this one by Pretty Blue Stamper particularly wonderful: Mine are not as beautiful or polished as hers, but I think they are still cute 🙂…
