Halloween 3x3 Magazine Holder

I was blog surfing the other day and found this adorable magazine holder for cards. The wonderful blog I found it on was Becky Roberts (no relation really!!). Here is a link to her site . I usually do not make 3-D projects because they kind of intimidate me but I fell in love with this and had to try it. It was unbelievably easy !! Becky’s instructions where great and my score-pal made it super fast. I already have some other ideas for some more mini magazine holders in my head I just have to find the time to make them.

Supplies I used:

Set: Batty for you
Cardstock: Lovely Lilac, Only Orange, Green Galore, Basic Black, Whisper White, Doodle Bug Pattern Paper.
Ink: Basic Black, Green Galore
Scallop Edge punch, Scallop Circle punch, Circle punches, paper-piercing tool, mat pack

Thanks for visiting and have a great evening!!!

It's Been Awhile!!

It has been awhile since I have posted on my blog. I have several reasons why I have been away. One is I am back to work and trying to get adjusted to that. Another is I really got into the Dirty Dozen week of challenges and kind of burnt myself out. But the biggest reason I have not gotten to play in my scrapin room is we got a new addition to the family.

This is Sadie our almost three month old mini daschund. She is all of 3 ½ pounds and rotten as can be. My husband found her last Monday at a Kennel on his UPS route. He fell in love with her and sent me and our girls to check her out. We all fell hard for her and added her to our family. She is already spoiled rotten but makes us laugh daily. She has beautiful blue eyes but we do not know if she will keep them or if they will change. She was so quiet and dossal when we got her but has quickly came out of that and is into everything. Anyways I finally stopped playing with the pup long enough to complete a two page layout of the Haunted Mansion from our trip this summer.

Supplies I used:

Cardstock: Only Orange, Green Galore, Basic Black, Lovely Lilac, Doodle Bug Pattern Paper
New SU Scallop Edge Punch, Cricut Doodle Bug Cartridges, Disney Punches and ribbon from Wal-mart, green gems for the spiders eyes

Thanks for visiting and have a good day!!!
