Faux Envelopes

I recently seen some adorable envelopes from Maya Road-Kraft Collection and I thought I could make them myself by using kraft paper, eyelets, string, and chalk.
It is pretty easy to do...tutorial is below:

This is a High School photo of Roxanne, my lovely daughter, I just love this sepia photo of her. It captures her in her prime of youth. How time flies so quickly....

Here are a few close-ups:

Here is the tutorial for faux envelopes:

First, make two 4.5 inch rectangles from kraft paper.

Next cut one rectangle in a wave pattern with wave scissors and then punch small holes in each scallop. Chalk both pieces all around and place scalloped paper on large rectangle, glue together.

Last, make 3/4 inch circles and add an eyelet in the center. Use pop dots and place on the envelope where ever you want them. Then add string or cord around the circles for a completed envelope look!

Enjoy! Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Halloween!!!

I wanted to wish everyone a safe fun Halloween this year!
Here is a layout I made for this Halloween season!

Both Layouts are from Martha Stewart Halloween Line. I love the dark, eerie colors this year.
I made some of the embellishments on both layouts and added spider web to both of them to give it an aged creepy look!

Happy Halloween!

Perfect Pumpkins

I love pumpkins! This tutorial is for making perfect pumpkins for all your Halloween and Autumn scrapbooking layouts this year. These are super easy to make. You can stamp or journal and make them any size you want; sooooo PERFECT!

First, cut out/punch circles and ovals…I used 2-inch circles and 2.5-inch ovals in 2 different oranges.

Second, I chalked the edges and stamped one of the ovals in the center.

Third, overlap the ovals and circles to your desire and add some swirls for the leaves. That’s it!

Here is an example using perfect pumpkins.
