Fall page and card using the boaf kit

Hi all, Today i am stopping by to share two more projects i made with the november kit. First i started with the orange side of the double- sided paper. Then i was in a artsy mood and gesso-ed, ink misted and watercolored a background then layered the halved cutaparts under my photos .Next,  i punched out some arrows from another paper and the word fall from another patterned paper. Lastly ,i added my title using the currogated alpha thickers and used the periods from the alpha sheet to add to my page with the ink splashes . ( oh lil pumpkin sticker is from my stash) 

12x12 page 

For the card i cut a 10x10 piece of the solid double sided paper and folded it in half then matted another square in the burnt orange. Next, i cut out a design from another pattern paper along with extra butterflies that i fussy cut out. I matted that paper and then popdotted the extra butterflies on top for dimemsion. Lastly,i punch out two swirls from the golden yellow pp and added them and stamped a sentiment to finish the card.  

5x5 card


Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!

Get chalky! Technique tuesday

Hi all,
 Happy technique tuesday! Today i wanted to share how i did my give thanks on my door sign. First i doodled ( you can also print out a saying off the internet) the saying i wanted on a piece of paper then i tweeked it and retraced it with marker so i could see my changes. 

Next, i took a piece of regular chalk( i used my kids sidewalk chalk) on the reverse side and scribbled it to cover the whole area behind the words. Lastly, i flipped the paper over and placed it onto the chalkboard sign. Then just traced with a pen around my words . I lifted the paper up and then i was left with a faint outline of the sidewalk chalk.  To finish, i took the chalk marker and traced and filled in the letters.

This was such a fun project!

Boaf technique Tuesday_get inky

Hi all , jen t. here. Happy technique tuesday!  Are you lovin' the wood veneer in the October kit?!  And that mini ink?! I am! And i thought of some ways to get the most use out of them- First i used the ink pad to ink up the wood veneer really good( if it is a word make your your ink the right side) then press down firmly onto the paper and pull it straight up. Wahlaa! A stamped image and  now you can still use the wood veneer on another project.  

Second, i took the same kind of wood veneer and washi to mask off the words so i could use part of the design .see pics below. 

Then since i was already inky i got out my acrylic block and stamped the ink on it and used my water pen to watercolor my cloud diecuts for my layout.

Sky's the limit with this kit! - Boaf October kit

Hi all, jen t. here. I am stopping by today to share a page and card i made using more of the october kit. For the page, i first started with the leaf paper and played around on cricut( which i haven't done in a long time) and decided that clouds would be fun. So i hit repeat and cut the whole page. I then backed it with the yellow woodgrain paper. Next i wanted to play with my ink from the kit so i colored them with it. ( check out my technique tuesday post next week for more about that). Then i pop dotted them for dimension. Then i grabbed the cutaparts,epherma,and puffy stickers and layered away . I ended up covering my clouds on the bottom so i could sdd more patterns and layers. 

Here is a close- up

Then i took a piece of the brown bazzill and made a card base. Next, i took the book text paper and stamped a rectangle using the wood veneer as a stamp. Then i fussy cut out a flower from another piece of pattern paper and layered it on . Lastly, i grabbed the wood veneers, glitter letters stickers and added and layered them around the card.

Oriental trading- diy halloween door banner and product review

Hi all, are you ready for halloween?! There is still plenty of time to get your craft on! These yummy craft goodies below i was given to by oriental trading to review and i made a fun diy banner to show you what i made with it all. ( warning --many pictures ahead... Lol!)
So here is a list of the goodies i got and my review: 

Halloween stickles- 8 in the pack!! 
Love them and super price
Black duck tape- great quality and stuck well 
Ghost string lights - super cute gauzy ghosts i wouldn't recommend using them outside because i think they would not look as nice wet but i used them for a inner door so they are perfect for my project
Black chalk board paint- great paint , nice and thick! I can't wait to use it for more future projects
Modge podge-   Great stick and easy to pour and paint with ( i love this stuff) 
Canvas door banner- thin canvas would have been too flimsy without the duct tape. 
Large diecut tree -super cute! Made of nice and thick paper 
Boo party napkins-  thick napkins - i actually got two boo's from one napkin and i still have a bunch left for halloween night snacks 
Halloween paper pack -  alot of papers! 5o pieces!nice and a great weight not thin. Great value - down side is that it is single- sided but it worked fab for my project. 

Work in progress : i layed out long pieces of wax paper on the table do my canvas banner wouldn't stick then i spread my canvas banner out- this is a large banner not super thick but when i modge podged the paper onto it , it became more sturdy. So i painted with foam brushes the modge podge onto the backs of my papers then adhered them to the banner. The halloween papers are so nice made of thick paper one-sided with 2 of each design and a ton of other patterns ( a great deal)
Then i took the black chalk paint and did a light layer of it onto the huge tree diecut to give it a creepy look. A second coat would have made it a solid black but i liked the look of just one coat. 

Next i modge podged the tree right on top of the pattern paper. The i grabbed those cute boo napkins and took the napkin layers apart leaving me with a single ply. I then used the piece to modge podge right onto the pattern paper.

Then with the diecut leaves i brushed on some   black chalk paint, crumbled them and glued them on to go with my distressed spooky look. After that i decided i wanted the banner more distressed so i rubbed the paper in spots to the white core and then brushed it with the black paint. 

Next, i took the black duck tape and trimmed the whole banner with it to give it a border and to make it sturdier. Lastly, i took the string ghosts lights and poked holes thru where i wanted to ghosts and pushed them thru to the front of the banner. Then on the back i used the duck tape to cover the wires and hold the battery pack. Finally i took the stickles ( glitter glue) and added touches of sparkle to the ghosts and leaves. The stickles are uber glittery while they do take time to dry they are well worth the wait. ( everything is better with glitter. Right?! )

The ghost lights are super cute and change colors when they are on. pic of them lit up below.

**disclosure* I was given these products for review.
