Monster Ball! Halloween Ornament!

Monster Ball! Halloween Ornament!

Day 31 of the 31 Days of Halloween!

I love Halloween not for the Scary Boo stuff but for the time we spent with our family watching old Monster Movies and being together. Time has moved on yet when we do reunite when the time is right we can’t resist reliving  our love of Monster movies!

For this Month’s challenge AlteredPages joined with Art Anthology to rock our crafting world!

I just want to tell you that in addition to the beautiful products that AlteredPages has, Art Anthology has some of the coolest dimensional metallic medium! I can’t get enough of it! Copper and just a pat with a spatula makes beautiful peaks of texture!

Additional items are mentioned in the video!

Thank you so much for joining me!


Now, from our partner Art Anthology we have a project by Designer Mariyln Hughes!

You can see details of her project on the Art Anthology Blog HERE!

The Gift Card Card

Robin here and today I have a project for you that is a fun way to give gift cards or cash.  

You will need two envelopes for this project.  One is what the post office calls the 6 1/4 Commercial envelope.  When I was growing up we just called it a letter envelope.  It's a smaller rectangle than the #10, being just 3 5/8" x 6 1/4".  The other is a standard A6.  I chose the A6 because it fits inside the letter envelope when it's folded in half and it's also large enough to hold a check or cash, as well as a gift card.

With the flap against the body of the envelope, fold it in half from side to side.  Cut the flap in half and trim the inside cuts at an angle so that they don't interfere with the fold or get bunched up. 

Decorate the flap side of your envelope.  This will be the inside of your card.  Fold the envelope again and decorate the side that will be the front of your card.

Cut a panel of card stock to fit inside the 6 1/4 Commercial (letter) envelope.  Att…

Pretty Little Trees of all colors

Make adorable ornaments or decor items.

YOU can make the most colorful trees to fit your style and home.  Surprise someone with a color coordinated gift too!
I did different techniques for dyeing the sisal trees from AlteredPages.  We have 3 inch and 4 inch sizes in natural cream color available.

# 1 Technique used simple food coloring.  Yep, just like dyeing Easter Eggs!

I used an empty glass jar filled with water and dropped about 4 to 5 of green food coloring in and stirred it well.   I then placed a tree in the water.  The sisal is just like jute, so it absorbs the color easily.   I allowed it to be submerged for a minute and took it out.  The first dipping was paler than I wanted, so back into the water!

I did the same with red food coloring and added blue to the green for an aqua, as above.   Depending on how many drops of color you add to the water and how long you leave them submerged will determine the intensity of color.  Pull them out of the water after 30 seconds and check for …
