Trick or Treat Hallow's Eve Treat Box

Hi Friends! Today I have a classic-vintage themed Halloween Treat Box I created using some of the yummy Crinkle Ribbon from 3GJ and some other crafty items. 

I have a quick video that shows the project up close along with the Crinkle Ribbon I used (you can skip to about the 4 minute mark if you want to get right to the project view).....

Here's the yummy Crinkle Ribbon I used on this treat box...
Halloween Harvest

I used the Halloween Harvest around the edge of the treat box lid and tucked it in among the flowers around the sweet little girl image..

I think this is such a fun & decorative way to give that special "ghoul" in your life a sweet treat!!

Be sure to stop by the 3GJ STOREand "Treat" yourself to some yummy crinkle ribbon : )

Thanks for checking out another ScrappinAbby project.

Port Wine Gift Bag with Scor-pal and Graphic 45 French Country

Hi Friends! For this project, I had the pleasure of working with the amazing papers from Graphic 45.  Using the gorgeous French Country collection and my Scor-pal, I made a French Country Port Wine Gift Bag.

Here's a short video that shows you the project up close along with the papers I used.....

To create the gift bag, I took a 12x12 piece of paper from the French Country collection and placed it on my Scor-pal and made score marks at  2 1/2", 5 1/2", 8" and 11"
 Next I rotated the paper and made another score mark at 1 1/2". You can adjust the height of your gift bag depending on how tall your beverage bottle is that you are using. 

 I then folded along all of my score lines and made the cuts that you'll see in the photo below
 I used Scor-tape on the edges and flaps that will create the gift bag. I do want to note that I inked all of my edges and placed my embellishments on the gift bag before I assembled it. I find doing this makes adding the final touches easier to do.

Once I assembled the gift bag, I took a 1/2" of paper to create the handle. Before covering it with some modge podge, I used a slightly smaller width strip of paper to add accent to the handle. The reason I used the modge podge was to give the strip of paper some added durability since it would be carrying the gift bag with a bottle of wine in it. 

Next I added some fussy cut images from the French Country collections, a mix of flowers and some crinkle ribbon. 
I wrapped some jute around the top of the bottle and used one of the G45 Metal Tags. Here you can easily write the name of the receipient or you could use a label.
I added more modge podge to the label I fussy cut from the collection and tucked some flowers and crinkle ribbon around it. I thought this would be a fun way to dress up the gift bag. 

In the next few photos you can see how I applied some Crackle Accents to the fussy cut roosters to create an aged looked and to add decor to the sides. This way if it's displayed on a kitchen counter it looks complete on all sides. 

I really love how this wine gift bag turned out and using the gorgeous papers from G45 and the Scor-pal products really made this project look elegant. This is such a quick and easy project to create and you can adjust the height and width to accommodate whatever type of beverage you are giving. 

Thanks for stopping by my blog and for checking out another ScrappinAbby project. I hope I was able to show you a creative way to use the amazing Scor-pal and G45 products. 

Happy Crafting!!

Sent From Heaven

Hi Friends! Happy World Card Making Day!! Today I'll be sharing a card I made for our niece and her hubby who just found out they are expecting their first baby. My hubby and I are so excited for them in this new journey in their life. 

I used my Scor-pal to create some texture on a piece of clear card stock, I thought this would be such a fun touch to this card.
Here's a short video that shows you the card up close...

 I love the clear crisp lines you get from the Scor-pal. 
 I am really pleased with how well this card turned out. I love designing cards when I know the person just gives it so much more meaning. I can't wait to give this to her and give them a huge hug with congratulations. 

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today and for checking out another project. I hope all of you are doing something creative today and please leave a comment if you have any questions on how I created the card...or if you just want to say you like :)

Happy Crafting!!

Hope You're Feeling Better Soon

Hi Friends! Today I'm going to share a card I made for a fellow co-worker who's also a friend and a fellow crafter. She's recovering from surgery and I wanted to send her something to hopefully brighten her day a bit and let her know that I'm thinking about her. 

I also have a short video showing you the card up close along with the yummy Crinkle Ribbon I used on this card...

I used 3 different crinkle ribbons for this card...

I love mixing the ribbons from the different bundles...they work so well together don't you think?
I frayed the ends of the crinkle ribbon that I tied through the wood button...such a cool shabby look to the yummy ribbon I think. I used a mix of sprays from Lindy's Stamp Gang and some craft paint mixed with water to add some texture and background on the papers I selected.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today and for letting me share another ScrappinAbby project with all of you. 

Happy Craftin!!
