Hi everyone! I’m here to share my card I created for the Crafty Card Gallery. The theme for the month of October we had to either use pumpkin/jack o’lanterns or chocolate.
This is what I came up with for my card. The base is a folded 6″x6″ piece of purple cardstock. I cut and layered patterned cardstock/scrapbook paper which I adhered to the base of the card.
The Clyde’s Pumpkin Patch image is cut from Echo Park’s Chillingsworth Manor Poster and Tickets sheet of cardstock. I distressed the edges and then inked. Then added pop dots to the back to give it some “height”.
I cut three thin strips of orange tulle and made mini bows out of them. I adhered behind the image along with some black and white polka dot flowers and some mini lime green balls picks that I had bought at Christmas but never used. I also added sequins, dew drops and black lace.
I finished off the card with ric rac and buttons. I’m really pleased with how the card turned out and was very easy to make.
Also I am submitting this card for the orange and black or Halloween themed challenge over at Paper Wings Production blog.
If you have any questions please let me know. Thanks for stopping by, hope your Saturday is awesome and enjoy creating!
The inspiration for this little mini paperbag album comes from a vintage doll head charm from art.i.cake by Amy Labbe that I bought at Michaels. Even though it cost a little bit more than what I would normally spend on charms I knew I had to have it.
I used a 6×6 pad of Echo Park’s This and That Graceful paper collection.
The whole mini came together perfectly. I used lace, buttons, ribbon, velvet ric rac, Prima and Making Memories flowers, Crafty Secrets butterfly image, The Robin’s Nest Dew Drops, buttons, baker’s twine and a Li’l Davis Designs bookplate.
The inside of this mini there is plenty of room to journal and add photos with the two tags that can be pulled out on the inside cover and on the opposite page there is a tag that is folded into thirds which gives you six places (front and back) to add your thoughts or little mementos.
The doll head stamp that I used for the mini page is by Pink Persimmons and the little butterfly stamp is by Christy Tomlinson and I used part of a paper doily I had in my stash. 🙂
A close up view…I used some of my own blush makeup for her cheeks since I couldn’t find my chalk pastels. I think it turned out nice. 🙂 Plus the little striped yellow and white scrapbook paper is actually a tag that can be pulled out from behind the doll head.
The handmade pocket is made from a old book which I received in a tag swap. I also used a old ticket stub as a tab for one of the tag inserts.
The last pages with more tags.

I hope you have enjoyed this little mini as much as I enjoyed creating it. Thanks for stopping by and looking and enjoy creating!!!
