Christmas Past

“When we recall Christmas past, we usually find that the 

simplest things - not the great occasions - give off the 

greatest glow of happiness.”

― Bob Hope

One of the child's teachers loves the Victorian Era and the  New Pion Paper - Days of Winter is  a perfect  collection  to capture Christmas past.  Handmade roses, dusted in diamond dust along with a  few poinsettias and a little  strand of pearls just adds to the  old fashion feel .

Tis Near Halloween

Jax is hosting a challenge this month which requires you to use three different paper lines on your project - ohh this was hard for me since I find my  style  has been really monochromatic and using the same line with shades of .. and  this  took me almost one week to create but  Halloween was the  best answer for this . 

From Echo Park, G45 and Authentique I  mixed and match the Halloween lines and turned Tasha into a Witch . 

Love the  Halloween  laser cuts from Creative Embellishments for Halloween  - the  spider web, the tree and the  owl are form one  full set .

October 31

 “Tis the night—the night

Of the grave's delight,

And the warlocks are at their play;

Ye think that without,

The wild winds shout,

But no, it is they—it is they!” 

Yes, October 31 - its truly about the candy - the chocolate more importantly ! 
Using Echo Park Halloween paper and the  new  Julie Nutting doll stamp   I created a candy box  to be filled with yummies. 

Lots of  black and  purple  stickles, and carboard cut and inked with  prima chalk ink pastel yellow to create the look of pages inside the  book ...  

Black 13@rts paint to change the  color of the mini roses,  and  from the  flowers the stems were twined around a toothpick to make the  twirly vines on the  pumpkins.
