Happy Halloween

wreath details 2

Happy Halloween.  Just a quick post today as I’m sure you all are super busy getting the kiddos off to school or planning a fun and spooky night.  Today, I’d like to share a tag wreath I created using tags.


I used two tag sizes and adhered them over each other in a circular shape for my base. I added trim from Petaloo’s Trim collection at the ends of each tag.

Next I layered flowers from Petaloo’s textured collection in greys, blacks and orange.  I finished the wreath using a black sheer ribbon and Petaloo’s Pumpkin Dazzlers. I think it took me about 30 minutes to put this all together.  Makes a great last minute Halloween decoration or a gift.  You can make this for any holiday or just for fun using all kids of colors or themes.  Also, you can switch out the flowers or add more.  The possibilities are endless. Hope you enjoyed today’s last-minute idea.

Thanks for coming by! Have a great Halloween and safe night!

Stickles are my go to tool.


Stickles are my favorite go to tool when it comes to glitter.  I love using them on all my crafty projects.


I love using them to enhance flowers, chipboard, stamps or wheat ever you want to add glam to.


I love to outline flowers with Stickles.  It adds that extra glam especially objects with muted colors.


You can purchase Stickles in all sorts of colors to match your projects.  If you use your coupon code you can get them for 40% off.  How nice is that???

Using a circle die/punch cut out 3 circles and glue the strips of glitter ribbon on top of each circle using fabric glue. Trim off the excess and you have a nicely glittered circle.  You can accomplish this with different shapes for texture on any craft project.


American Crafts Glitter Ribbon can be purchase through Scrapbook in a package like this or by the spool.



I enjoyed using American Crafts glitter ribbon to create these adorable flower heads and stems.  You can use this same technique to decorate gift packages, tags, cards and mix media pieces.

Stains, Sprays and Fiber Paste


I really love these sprays by Ranger called, Dylusions Ink Sprays.  The bright happy colors are sure to steal your heart and there are so many possibilities as what you can create with them.  Ranger carries so many wonderful product the very talented Mr. Tim Holtz

My project today is made with many Ranger products like these Dylusions Ink Sprays, Tim Holtz’s Distress Inks, Stains and Stickles.


I used  two different types of Canvas from Canvas Corp. One is made from Canvas and the other is made from burlap.  Both are perfect to use for mix media projects.  I used Tim Holtz’s Distress Stains on the burlap canvas which is the smaller of the two.




I also used Fiber paste from Golden.  It’s a paste that already has fiber mix in so when you spread it over the canvas it will create this texture and you can ink it.  The texture picks up on all the inks and creates imperfections with dark and light tones.  It’s super fun!


These flowers are called Color Me Crazy flowers by Petaloo.  They come in white so you can color them whatever color you want to match your project.  Aren’t these cool?


Come to to get all your crafting supplies.  This month’s 40% coupon code is STOCKING.

Just Thankful


It feels like it’s been a lifetime since I blogged about anything and today was the first time in a few days that I was able to.  Today’s card  has lots do with how I feel and with all the different happenings in the world …I’m just thankful.

I made this card with Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Hero Arts stamp,and Ranger’s Stickles

These distress inks are so fun and easy to use.  The blending of colors you get after you finish a project is so beautiful.  I outlined the leaves with Stickles to make them stand out and I stamped the leaves to give it some texture .  You can get all your crafty supplies by visiting and with this month’s 40% coupon code called, STUFFING.

“Floradoodles” Holiday Collection

I know it’s still July, but the holidays will be here before you know it!  Halloween is one of my favorite holidays and I love decorating for it.  This year at CHA Petaloo debuted their NEW Floradoodles Holiday Collection and it was a hit!  What an awesome collection and the colors are so bright and perfect for any holiday crafting need.

I made this shadow box using Graphic 45’s Magic of OZ paper and used oodles of Petaloo flowers from the NEW collections.  It’s so perfect how well the details in the flowers work so well with this theme.  The leafs, the colors, each petal, each pearl and most of all the simple glitter lining…oh my!

I also used Tim Holtz embellishments to highlight all the beautiful flowers in the NEW Floradoodles collection.  Here’s a sneak peek at some of the awesome Petaloo flowers coming to stores near you.

Here’s a close look of what I’ve been talking about, cool right?  I love these little glass flowers and leaves.  There’s so much you can do with these fabulous flowers and I can’t wait to see what you come up with.  More to come and a Christmas shadow box in the making.

Thanks for coming by and I’ll be back with more fun using Petaloo!
