Halloween Paper Cone Wreaths

Hi Everyone,
Lisa of Lisa's Craft Room here sharing my project with you today.
Thanks Sheila for having me again this month :)
I made my mother and sister each a paper cone wreath for a Halloween decoration. These are pretty easy to make but it was my first time making these so please go easy on me. :)  I think they came out cute and they do look better in person, I do need some practice, especially laying them out, I probably could have used more, but both my mother and sister loved them :)
Rolling up the papers into cones was a little tricky for me but it wasn't too bad, it's trying to lay them out so that they look nice was a little trying.
On the big wreath, I think the papers are 6 x 6 and on the smaller wreath, the papers are 2 x 2. I used a hot glue gun to adhere them together after I rolled them into the cone shape.
The BOO, ghosts and pumpkin are all from My Creative Times stamp set - Treats for my Sweet. I used black and white tulle.
I hope you like my project today. Thanks for stopping by, I always appreciate visits and comments.

Christmas Tags

Hello Everyone,

I hope you all are doing well and are enjoying the weekend so far. I made some Christmas Tags for a swap, 15 of them :) and I made one to send to Miss Sheila for her to post on her blog. Now I'm not going to tell you which one is which :D that's a surprise.

Aren't these cute though? I enjoyed making them and the cute little elf and the sweet little bird are both on wobbles.

Recipe: Tags - Art Philosophy cartridge
              Elf and Bird - Jolly Holidays
              Stickles, Gems and Ribbon - from my stash
              Sentiments - My Pink Stamper stamps
              Punch - Martha Stewart

I cut out the elf tag again in white so that I could use the top and bottom. On the top, I used the icicle punch from Martha Stewart. On the bird tag, I adhered pattern paper to half of the tag, then cut off the remaining.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon.

Triple Stamp Card

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all well. WOW, it's so warm here still and I am so happy for that, I don't think I'm quite ready for the cold. Summer goes by way too fast and Winter seems to be around forever. I'm so thankful I have a hobby to keep me busy in the winter months.

I've been seeing these darling cards and I decided to make one, they are very easy. I love the look of them.

3 pieces of cardstock
1 cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" ( this is your card base) I used black
1 cut at 3 1/4" x 4 1/2"
1 cut at 2 1/4" x 3 1/2"


3 pieces of cardstock for mats - I used orange
1 cut at 4" x 5 1/4"
1 cut at 3" x 4 1/4"
1 cut at 2" x 3 1/4"

You use repositionable tape runner and adhere the mats on top of each other from biggest to smallest. The tape runner prevents them from moving while you stamp. Then stamp away with any stamp you wish.

After you are done stamping, adhere each mat to it's coordinating mat, ex. you fold the 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" (that's the A2 size card) the 4" x 5 1/4" mat goes on top of that and so forth. I hope you understand what I mean. After they are all adhered to each other you adhere the other two on top making sure to line up the stamped images.

The witches hat and sentiment are from Emma called Treats for my Sweet. The twine is from Liz, the ribbon and the button are from my stash.

I hope you like my card and try one. I know I will be making more.

Thanks for stopping by and I will see you soon.
