Mostly Haunted

Hello everyone, thanks for coming to my blog.

Today is the last dual-blogging with my other self over at Altered Ego.  I've been playing with Glassine paper this time-
I expected this to be hard to stick - bit it took the tape really well.

Here's the tutorial-

No talking on this one - just music, for a change!

See you soon,

Simply Sketched Saturday

Thank you for joining us on the first Simply Sketched Saturday Challenge!

Just in case you haven't seen it, this week we've been challenged to base our project on this sketch - 


I like working from a sketch - it's great to have a starting point all thought out for you.  Here's my effort -

This is what I used -
So now, proceed, if you would be so good, on to the next blog in the hop using the buttons below. Thanks for visiting!

All boxed up

Hello blog friends!

Today is Tuesday, which is the day I share a tutorial on my YouTube channel – and also simul-blog with my evil twin at Altered Ego.

Today I made this Explosion box.

If you’re eagle-eyed, you might have spotted that I got stuck the DSP down with the lines up and down for two of the panels and side to side for the others...It’s a design choice, but after I filmed it the pattern was making my brain unhappy so I went in with some lighter fluid (US crafters can get something called Un-Du, but we Brits can’t get it over here) and un-stuck the offending panels so I could put them back the right way.  I felt better after that.

Halloween is coming!

Hi there, thank you for visiting today.

If you've been keeping up with my recent posts (thank you!  I really appreciate it!) then you'll know that my evil twin over at Altered Ego is taking part in a 31 days of Halloween blog challenge.  Today I've posted a Stampin' Up! project so I'm duplicating it over here.

I used Happy Haunting DSP and the Wonderful Wreath stamp set and die bundle.  The "Boo" is from Cheer All Year - I am having so much fun with that set!

I'll be back again soon - look forward to seeing you!

Happy Haunting!

Hello bloggers!  Today I am simul-blogging with my other self over at Altered Ego.  I'm taking part in a month long blog hop with a Halloween theme.

This is a CASE of a card I shared a few weeks ago.  I love how the design looks different in different colours!  

Here's the sketch of the design -

Thanks for visiting - and I'll see you soon!
