40:31 Creations Challenge

I am realllllly sorry for the terrible quality photos on this one. I left my camera at work and really wanted to get this into Lauren's challenge last minute, so I had to use my phone...
Anyway, Lauren had a halloween project challenge as well, so I made this spinner card! Yes, another spinner card, I promise to find a new obsession soon! I just think they are so cute! I like this one the best so far because it is very simple and clean looking. The bat spins back and forth, like it is flying in the sky!I saw this technique on Trish's blog, see my post earlier today for the link to her video.
So, here is it! Hope you enjoy!

All of the solid cardstock is from The Paper Company
Orange polka dot patterned paper is from DCWV Amber Autumn Stack
Black Foil Stars is from DCVW The Rockstar Stack
The bat and vampire were cut from my current favorite cartridge Paper Doll Dress Up!
The sentiment is a stamp from the dollar bin at Michael's
The vampire's hair has Glossy Accents to make it shiny.
Milky Way White Galaxy Marker is for the outlines on the bat and vampire.
And Martha Stewart Drippy Goo Edge Punch

Erin Lee Creative Halloween Challenge

I can't believe that it's nearly September! School starts for my on Wednesday and I'm not even close to ready for it! But at least it means Halloween is almost here!!!!
Erin Lee Creative is hosting a Halloween Project Challenge sponsored by! I'm really excited for this one because I just LOVE halloween! I found a really cute idea on Trish's blog at Techniques by Trish. Click here here to watch the video. I wish I could figure out the whole video thing, so I could show you how cute this is, but I'll have to do it with photos for now.
So, here it is! The witch wants her Spell book, but it's too far away so she makes it levitate to her!

All of the solid cardstock is from The Paper Company.
The patterned paper is from Provo Craft Doodlecharms pack
The edge punch is called Drippy Goo from Martha Stewart
The sentiment and black satin ribbon are both from Michaels.
And last but not least, stickles!

First post and Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge #35

I decided to create this blog so that I can enter my projects into design challenges. My first one is going to be Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge #35. It was a color combo and design challenge. The colors we had to use are Apricot, Teal and Orchid. I wasn't sure about these colors at first but all of the projects that people have submitted are SO cute! Anyway, here is what I came up with. I would greatly appreciate any feedback on my card, tips for my new blog or anything else!

Thanks for looking!
