The star on the tree is from the ornament punch set, Delightful Decorations...the ornaments are red confetti that I had purchased for the kids to use to decorate their houses....

she punched the Modern Label in Close to Cocoa and cut in half and layered them on the roof like shingles...she embossed the door and sponged it to make it look old....she is adding cakes and cupcakes in the windows with vellum...we even found some patterned paper with bricks for the chimney....
Great job, Maggie!

Here"s my 7 year old, T.J., and his haunted house....it's still a work in progress...he used Lovely Lilac for the house and sponged black all over the edges for a spooky feel...the roof is made of 1 inch circles from Basic Black and Handsome Hunter...the windows have a sheet of vellum (and some have googley eyes glued in the openings)...we crimped some strips of Basic Black for crooked shutters....hopefully he will finish it before next Halloween!

|I love this layout! Uses the scallop tags from Two Tags die!|
My son's pre-school sent out a letter asking for donations to send to the troops...included in the list of items to donate were handmade cards...right up my alley! Here's what I came up with...I donated 56 cards in all...I used only retired colors and patterned paper (my own little challenge!)...and since I've donated cards before, there is nothing shiny (like glitter, so they will not be detected at night)

I've been thinking of making this a fall card, too, but adding a bunch of colorful leaves on the floor instead of the snow....the snowflakes have a tiny dot of Dazzling Diamonds in each center, as well as a tiny bit on the bare branches....
Bashful Blue, Bordering Blue, Whisper White

I used some patterned paper from Sale-a-bration and stamped the leaves in Pumpkin Pie....it's really a simple layout and the paper piercing around the white circle really add some pizzazz....
Would make a great Thanksgiving card, too!

I like how the Modern Label punch is folded under the patterned paper layer and looks like a belt....

She did a great job! We use the candle holder every night and it looks beautiful!
