DIY Halloween Decor Ribbon Wreath

Good Morning everyone and welciome to Day Three of the May Arts Ribbonista blog Hop! Thanks so much for stopping in today!

If you haven't seen the rest of the teams amazing creations, the line up is at the bottom of this post!! Happy Hauntings!! 

For this hop I created an EASY Spooky Wreath, that literally ANYONE can recreate! 

The magic of this wreath is that the ribbon is simply knotted all the way around onto the base of the wreath!!

The base of the wreath is made out of paper! I took Six zeros and cut them out at 9" on my Cricut  and adhered them together so it would be fairly substantial!

Add some Spooky Alphas and VOILA!

For my project I used the Polaroid Wood Frame from Genuinely Jane Studios and the Linnie Bloom Shaped Mixed Media Blanks. I inked the Polaroid album with Dysillusion Ink in Black and the sweet little canvas Owl from Linnie Blooms is inked in brown and grey inks. I used Ranger White Paint on the Blank Star.

Here is a close up of the Sweet Little Linnie Blooms Owl!

Here is a shot to show you how this adorable Wood Album Opens! This Album could be so fun for SOOO many projects!

On this page I used the Linnie Blooms Circle Shapes and inked them in Yellow for the moon! I was so thrilled how they turned out!

On this album page, I inked the wood with Dysillusions in Red before topping off with the black. I love the eery feeling it gives it!


On this page I used the Mixed Media Blanks in the Circle and the Square for the moon and the gates panel.

Mini Accordion Album - Spell Book - Halloween Project

Hello Guys and Gals! Are you ready for some fabulous Halloween Inspiration!?

For my Halloween project, I created a Spell Book! This Mini Accordion Album is 4x4 inches and has 16 pages of embellishing space! How FUN is that!?

I think adding in a page with the Subway Art made it so adorable! 

There are also little Tabs added to some of the pages for a little space and adding a little fun element to the book! Cute idea right!?

Accordian Mini Album with "Beautiful Moments"

Hey there guys and Gals! I am super excited to share this accordion Album with you today! Last night I participated in Scrappin Madges U-stream Tutorial on how to make these awesome Mini Albums, and I am SOOO glad that I did!! I just loved the little tips I picked up on acrylic sheets, and adding additional pockets to your albums! 

So The first Album I made features Echo Parks Carta Bella Paper Line. This set is from Designer Carina Gardner called "Beautiful Moments" 

I have hoarded this kit for far too long! This was definitely one of the ones that I found too pretty to use on anything!! 

I made my Album 4 1/4" {Square} because I was using 8.5"x11" Sheets for the Albums Base

I used two Sheets of the red cardstock for the base

I then simply used the elements in the Kit to embellish it! It was SOOO simple!

I left some pages blank so someone can put photos in the Album
Isn't this Rose sticker beautiful!? I did a little embossing with my Beloved Sakura Glaze Pens

And there you have it! I hoped that you liked it! I sure LOVE the way it turned out! And a HUGE THANK YOU to Scrappin Madge for hosting the Tutorial so I could learn how to make these!!
