Webster's Pages 'Once Upon a Halloween' double-sided paper collection at Art 'n Soul has so many possibilities to create some great projects and unique cards for Halloween. Check it out . . . better yet, we invite you to come into the store to take a close-up and personal look! They're on the spinner rack. My Mind's Eye Halloween Lost & Found papers are on the paper racks under the table on the left.


This is a close-up of the black paper side . . . the pattern is extremely subtle!


SEI notified me today that the beautiful fall papers I ordered at CHA are being shipped as I write this. Yay! And Graphic 45's Bird Song paper collection should be arriving at the end of next week . . . as Susie says, "whoopee!"

Speaking of Graphic 45, look at these amazing paper crafts using this year's Graphic 45's Nutcracker Suite holiday collection. . . .


Nutcracker Sweet Altered Art Box
"Hello G45ers,
Welcome to another splendid day of crafts and smiles here at Graphic 45! We have some delightful treasures to share with you! Today is all about our enchanting new holiday collection Nutcracker Sweet. You are going to see the most divine creations from Alberto Juarez and Jim, The Gentleman Crafter. Today's crafts are full of so much joy and inspiration. We just know they're going to brighten your day. So lets get to it! First up is this gorgeous piece of home decor by Alberto Juarez. This is such a lovely idea and it looks fantastic! It combines jubilant holiday cheer with the elegant ballet theme in Nutcracker Sweet. This piece was made using the brand new Graphic 45 8x8 Matchbook Box! Alberto even created a downloadable pattern to show you how to create the beautiful ballet slippers! Here is what he had to say about this splendid work of art!
"I made this painting as decoration for Christmas or for a girl's room using as a base the matchbook 8x8 box, with the Nutcracker Sweet collection and making some dancers with the pattern attached. I printed and cut two pieces of each, one on each side, for both ballerina slippers." Alberto Juarez

Pinwheel Doily Flower

"I have a bright and fun card to share with you today.  I began with my Inverted Scalloped Lg Stacker dies for the card base; using a Square Lg Stacker die for the plaid DP panel.  Using the new Pinwheel Doily with Angel Wing I die cut a base for my flower; created with Build a Flower #1, Embellishment #1 and the leaves from Judy's Blooms.  

I used pop dots under the doily to give the card some dimension.  Look how full and lovely the flower is.  The last step was to add a Celtic Weave border and some Viva Decor Pearl pen accents.  Finished size is 6" square.

Don't forget to check out this week's Stitch It Up challenge for a chance to win a $20 shopping spree at Cheery Lynn Designs."
