I was inspired to make these two cards after seeing the instructions on Meg's Waxy's Whims Blog.
I made the first one & realized the paper is from a mini catty that did not make it into the catty(disappointing), so I made another one using the Creepy Crawly DS paper from the current SU! catty. The stamp set is Batty for You . I punched the circle with the 1 3/8 punch and mounted it on the SU! new scallop punch then glued those to a paper paperclip made from a sizzix die that I picked up at JoAnn's on clearance. It seems lately I have been lethargic when it has come to stamping. I keep starting projects and not finishing them. I am in the middle of making a travel journal to take with me when we go to Oregon next week. I will post that when we get back. With getting out of the heat I just may get re energized to do some tutorials. Oh well enough whining on my part. Happy stamping & crafting to you!
they are a little crooked in the picture....oops. they are square IRL. promise.

Allison listed a link to a really cute tutorial so I thought I would try it.
Katheryn was the creator of the tutorial, she has a really cute blog.
I used Daisy D double sided paper, The sentiment and tags are made from SU cardstock, White, Rose Red, Positively Pink and Old Olive. The stamp sets are SU Simply Said and Serene Sunflower. I used a circle , oval and tag punch, prima flowers, various brads and ribbon to embellish with. Fun little project

I love silly halloween critters. I love the halloween colors . I made this can that I bought at ....Yep....Just4funcrafts.com. The stamps are SU! Best Fiend and top of the can,(circle) is Stampendous. All cardstock is SU. Jenn also supplied me with the photo hangers that are bright green. Images were colored with prismacolor pencils. Hobby Lobby in Phoenix has the pencils on clearance right now in a leather bound case for 17.99 regularly 49.99....FYI.

The paper is a packet I picked up at just4funcrafts. The paper K&Co. I love pinks and greens together so this packet just grabbed me. Every page has some sort of interaction going on. I put tags, pockets, file folders double slots for 2 tags on some pages and lots of nailheads. I carried the same nailheads through out the book. They are antique brass, and I set them using my Homeprotool that I got from Jenn at just4fun. She is such an enabler, I swear she twists my arm!!!!! LOL
The tag on the right side slips out of the diagonal piece of cardstock. I glued just the two corners so I could just slide the tag in and put pics on both sides. The next picture shows the back side of the tag when it is slipped out.
This has a file folder slipped into another variation of the page before. The gingham cardstock is only glued at the top & bottom allowing the file folder to be slipped in & out.
