Trick or Treat

Can you believe that next week is the first of October??  Not me.  Crazy how fast this year has gone!
October = Halloween, where all of the cute little goblins and ghouls come out requesting candy.
It's really not a secret among my friends and family that Halloween is NOT my favorite holiday.  However, in our new house, I have a mantle that's begging to be decorated.
So, for my first DIY project in the new house, I've made a cute little banner that I've hung across the mantle.

The letters were a pre-made kit that I found at Michaels, as well as the ghosts.  The ghosts were solid white, so I took a black sharpie to them to draw their eyes.  I used a small hole punch on both sides of their head to string the Halloween Combo twine through so that I could hang it up.
All of the Halloween colored twine is on sale for $4.50.  Trust me when I tell you it's SO fun to craft with!!

47 Has Never Looked So Good

On Tuesday, we celebrated my handsome husband's birthday early since he has to work on his actual birthday.  47 has seriously never looked so good. :)
The Timeless Twine by Bella Creationz theme this month is "Birthday" so what a perfect opportunity to use their awesome products to make a fun pocket layout.
I used Aqua Blue and Raspberry Pink (which all rolls are on sale for $8!!!!) for the swirls on the title card.  The cute little silver stars sequins are coming soon, but there's many other styles available in their shop!  And, my go-to journaling card, Days of the Week.

PlanNerd Sunday

I know that I said I'd never get into planners, but with all of the cute accessories and planners these days, it's really hard to just say no.
So, that means I'm up today with my first PlanNerd post for Timeless Twine/Bella Creationz.
I have to admit, this was REALLY fun to put together.  But don't be deceived - it isn't as easy as it looking!  This spread took over 2 hours to make but I wanted it PERFECT - CUTE yet FUNCTIONAL.
Here is the main week:
I LOVE the weekend stamp from the Weekend Plans stamp set!
I LOVE the journaling spot on the PlanNerd and the Project Planner spot on the PlanNerd 2 stamp sets.  The journaling spot is also GREAT for making lists (like chores...pffft.) and shopping lists!

When stamping, one technique that I'm really loving is double stamping w/o re-inking.  It's just fun!!

You can find all of these AWESOME planner stamps (and more!) in the Bella Creations Etsy shop.
