On this beautiful Sunday afternoon, I am here to check in on you, my friends. It's been just a little while since my last post, and I hope that life is treating you kindly. My little one and I are just about ready to settle in for a movie and popcorn, it's almost time to send my husband off to another meeting, and I am looking out my window, enjoying the view. It changes so much this time of year. Sometimes the mountains are pink, sometimes the sky is purple, there are times when the fields are blazing with gold and orange. Whatever the view out my window, I am thankful.
It's been a while since I shared my Emma's Paperie projects with you, and today I've got Christmas, Halloween, and something in between. My first project uses Fancy Pants Library Pockets and Tags to create Christmas pockets and tags, ready to share for the holidays.
One reason I love creating for Emma's Paperie so much, is because I get to combine many different manufacturers, no limit, and doing so is so much fun. So, my cute little stocking tags, attached to the library tag, are from 7Gypsies...always love those gypsies.
My vintage images are from My Mind's Eye, the fun Flair buttons are from Carta Bella, and of course May Arts for my ribbon.
A supply list for these projects can be found HERE.
Bella Blvd. products were used on my Halloween treat jar. I couldn't wait to use their fun, feathers on a project, and this jar happened to be just the right spot to start.
I love that October is a long month...more time to create for Halloween, don't you think?
This little jar came together in a hurry. All you need are a few sweet and spooky supplies. They can be found HERE.
My last project is all about texture and color. I love that we paper-crafters get to use texture as we create and I especially love burlap!
Supplies for this project can be found HERE.
It seems I'm making my mental Christmas wish list a little early this year. One thing that I most likely will snag for myself before the holidays arrive is this book I've very much looking forward to reading:
I love words and stories and the power they have to lift and inspire goodness in ourselves and what we feel towards others. I am especially thankful for the reminder to "look up" more often instead of allowing myself to look at the negative, the sadness, the unhappiness that life brings...because life has a way of doing that non-stop, doesn't it?
Here's to a wonderful new week!
