Today was supposed to be a busy day of paper piecing... didn't quite happen as planned due to the change of weather and a whopper of a migraine! However, the day wasn't a total loss. I did get a dozen of these tags done and they'll be perfect for the bags of treats we plan on sharing with the grands for Halloween.
The papers are from Creative Fabrica as is the font. Shapes are from the SCAL5 Library with the exception of the scalloped circle. That is a Penny Duncan file. The wave piece was created in SCAL5 using the wave command. The skycut machine made quick work of all the cuts and the "Trick or Treat" Print 2 Cut was spot on again. Once all assembled, a quick spritz or two of mica spray added just a quick touch of iridescence to each of the tags.
Hoping your Halloween crafting is coming along and if you've already moved on to one of the next holidays, keep on crafting! Enjoy your time and nurture your creative soul!
It's definitely time to trim the tray again. This time with a Halloween theme. Lots of great spooky stuff at Creative Fabrica -- and while these are pretty simple items.... they definitely are fun to make.
You'll find all the details for a few of these items at The Artistry.
And there's always a little hocus pocus going on around here as we get ready for Halloween. The pumpkins are ripening -- a little more slowly than the norm, but we will harvest a few more before the freeze we're expecting next week. This week has been peak viewing of the change in color of the leaves on the mountains in the area. They've been brilliant this year. Even our peach trees have given us quite the show. It's time for apple cider, hot chocolate and if the snow arrives as forecast, there'll be some doughnuts too.
It's been a fun couple of weeks designing and assembling some fun holiday decor this year and I'm so happy that the Skycut and SCAL 5 Pro have made it easy to accomplish. The first project is a new banner to hang over the fireplace. It's a featured article this week on The Artistry and I'm excited to share it with you.
You'll find the creative details and assembly instructions here.
And I still had a few rosettes left over, so I thought they would make a fun bouquet.
Hoping you're enjoying some creative time this week and if not, will be able to carve out a bit of time in the near future. I know that crafting makes my spirits lighter. Thanks for dropping by.
