Halloween Tag Swap

Hi All~ thought I would share a photo of the tag I submitted for a tag swap at our local scrapbook store here in town over the weekend. I think it turned out pretty cute! I love Halloween, with this holiday, there's endless possibilities of crafting, oh what am I talking about, that's with every holiday!! ;0)

I started out with black cardstock and used some My Minds Eye paper for the bottom of the tag and the bat cut-out. The Bat came from the "Simply Charmed" cricut cartridge and I added a button and ribbon to embellish it. I stamped the trick or treat and added some copper brads and popped it up with a pop dot. The flower I made with a flower punch out of some beige and black paper then I added an orange brad to the center and used Stickles to glam it up. I think it turned out adorable and it kind of has a vintage feel. Love it when things turn out differently than expected! The swap is next week, so I can't wait to see what other folks created with their tags. I'll share once I receive them. This is my first swap so I'm hoping to do many more now that I've actually taken the plunge!!

Happy crafting!

Spooky But Cute Necklace

My sister gave me some adorable Halloween charms from Little Yellow Bicycle (LYB as I like to call them!). I told her I would use them for a piece of jewelry instead of using them on some scrap pages. So I made her this cute necklace with the LYB charms and I had some metal letter charms in my stash that worked perfect along side the charms to spell out "Spooky". I love making jewelry that's inexpensive and creative!

Here's the finished product!

Hope you're making something fun today!
