A Home is Built with....

Love & Dreams, of course!  Good morning and I hope everyone is staying safe and out of the storm.  Today I am sharing a layout I made using The Paper Bakery's October Kit Welcome Home.  It is amazing and the colors are so yummy!  And versatile too.  You will not want to miss out on these!

I doubled the washi tape so that it wasn't sticky and made banners out of it...
Just look at these great embellishments!
Thanks for stopping by everyone~  Have a great day!

A Simple Thanks

Good Tuesday morning!  Today I want to show you the card I made with the beautiful American Crafts 5th and Frolic paper.... I just love this patterned paper.  I usually don't make cards this simple, but I think this card is simply perfect.  I used the paper and stickers from The Paper Bakery's October kit called Welcome Home. It is a great kit and you can buy one HERE. 

And here is a look into how I created the card~
Step #1-  Poke a hole in the middle of the "V".
Step #2~ Start from the back so the ends can't be seen.
Step #3~  Pull the floss over the paper and adhere using a very thin line of liquid adhesive.
Step #4~ Adhere the ends to the back of the card.
Thanks for stopping by everyone!

Today & Always

Good morning everyone!  Today a want to show you a layout I made using American Crafts' 5th & Frolic line.  It is beautiful! I just can not get enough of it! The patterns are great and the colors are delicious!   The Paper Bakery Kit Club has a great kit that includes lots of 5th & Frolic~ You can pick it up HERE.  You don't want to miss out - I am sure these kits will go fast since they are filled with cuteness!  

And don't be afraid to cut pieces out of the pattern~
And look at these great alphas that are included in the kit~ They fit perfectly on the word pattern of a paper included in the kit as well!
Hope you were inspired today!
Until next time~

Because there is no place like home

Hello everyone and happy Tuesday! Today I want to share with you a super cute tag I made using The Paper Bakery Kit Club's October Kit called Welcome Home.  You can sign up now to make sure you receive this kit.  Full release is coming soon!  It is filled with the brand new and fabulous American Crafts 5th and Frolic and Ready Set Go.  You will not want to miss this one!  The color palette is so yummy and the sticker book that is included is jam-packed with cute stickers!

Check out this adorable house paper! I just HAD to cut out the windows with my exacto knife and add curtains!  And see the cool lightbulb washi tape at the bottom of the tag?  I folded a long strip  in half (sticky sides together) and ruffled it before adhering it to give it dimension.

I also fussy cut out one of the lightbulbs from the washi tape and flipped it upside down for the body on the butterfly.

Thanks again for joining me today everyone!  I hope you have enjoyed my little "homestyle" tag.

Halloween is just around the corner!

Hello everyone!   Today I am super excited because I get to share some Halloween goodness with you~ I absolutely LOVE Halloween!  And since I love handing out Halloween treats to my friends and family, these little potion bottle treasures are perfect!   You could also just use them as decorations.  But just a warning- your family will want to eat all of the candy out of the bottles because they are so cute!

                                 Which one is your favorite?  I can't decide!

The Labels & Tags paper from the GCD Studios Splendor collection has some great labels and such for making these potion bottles.  And Halloween is still a few weeks away~ you have plenty of time to make some for yourself!  I recently found the bottles in the glass section of my local craft store.  Have a great day!

Halloween Treats

If you haven't guessed already, Halloween is my absolute favorite season! (But Christmas is a VERY close second!)  My mom loves Tic Tac candies, so I guess you could say that it was her that inspired this next project!  This too, was made using The Paper Bakery Kits September Scrapbook kit titled Haunted Trails!  I am loving this very royal Halloween paper from Authentique that is included in the kit.   Good thing Halloween is still a few weeks away~ You still have time to make some of these super cute candy holders!  All I did was score the paper so it would fold nicely around the candy box...Check it out!

 And the inside
Thanks again for stopping by today!
