Hello!  I am so excited to show you a couple of the new Perfect Presentation templates that are available RIGHT NOW at the Wild Flower Patch shop~HERE!!! 

For my first project I used this super fun Whimsy House Template!  Isn't it just so perfect for a haunted halloween house?!?  I love that you have two boxes~the larger one on the bottom, and the smaller one on the top to store little gifts and treats in!  How fun for the recipient!!! 

Leigh Ann also included the picket fence as well as some door and window templates, so you get a lot of bang for your buck!!!  To decorate my house I used a couple of PTI stamp sets~Been Boo'd and Home Made.  I also used some sticker elements and dp from Echo Park Paper~Happy Halloween.  Here are a couple more views of the house:




I had sooooo much fun making this house:)  Now for my second project.  I used this fabulous little halloween favor box template called Tombstone Treat Bag!

These are so fun and EASY to make!!!  Perfect for treats for school, or favors for a party!  I love it!!!  I decorated my bag with Echo Park Paper Co. Happy Halloween dp and sticker elements once again:) 

How would you like to WIN one of the new templates!?!?!?  I will be selecting a random commenter to win their template of choice!  That's not all!  All of the other DT members are giving away templates as well, so make sure you leave comments for them too!  You have until Wednesday at midnight to comment:)

Inky Impressions Guest DT Call!


Hello!  When I saw that Inky Impressions was having a Guest DT Call I knew I had to apply!  I just love these adorable images!!!  To apply, we were to make an easel card.  I've had so much fun making halloween cards lately, that I decided to give Fairy Lili a halloween inspired costume and set up a spooky little scene for her:)  I cut the tree out with my Cricut using the Paper Doll Dress Up Cartridge and embossed the bg with the Spiderweb CB Folder.  The pumpkin is a Martha Stewart punch.  I once again used this awesome dp from Echo Park Paper Co. called Happy Halloween which I just adore!  Here is a close up of Lili



That's it for me!  Wish me luck, and good luck to all of you who applied:)  Have a wonderful weekend!!!

Kind Words

Hello!  This month I am the Guest DT member for Really Reasonable Ribbon which means that I will be posting a project on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog every Tuesday in September.  Today I have this pretty box which is a new template from Perfect Presentation called Tall Gable and you can find it HERE!  I LOVE this box, and will be using this template A LOT!  I've also been itching to ink up one of my new Verve sets called Kind Words.  Isn't it beautiful?  I stamped the sentiment in Not Quite Navy and the flowers in Sahara Sand.  I made some little ribbon yoyo flowers using 3/8" and 5/8" French Blue Grosgrain Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon, and added some 5/8" Ivory Crochet Lace Accents.  I also made a couple of hair bows for those hair bow makers out there:)

Isn't that striped ribbon so fun?!  This is the Candy Stripe Grosgrain, and I paired it with some 7/8" Red Grosgrain

That's it for me!  Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day:)

Blog Candy Winners!!!

Hey everyone!  First I want to apologize for not doing this sooner.  My sister is in town visiting, and I only see her once a year, so I have been busy catching up and entertaining her.  Today she really wanted to go to Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios, so that's what we did.  We had a BLAST, but I'm feeling a little dizzy and queasy after all the roller coasters!  The parks were not crowded at all, so we walked right on to many of the rides, including the new Harry Potter rides~so fun!  Ok, onto my winners:

The winner of the two All That Scraps Swiss Pixies images is:

SAM~The Arts and Crafts of My Life

The winner of the Really Reasonable Ribbon Gift Set is:

ELENA~The Red Haired Girl

Congratulations, Ladies!!!  Please e-mail me your info, and I will get your goodies out to you!  Have a wonderful weekend!
