Ding Dong the Witch is Dead…

Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead

 I saw this today on the blog Holiday Snob and just had to share it with you.  I just LOVE the Wizard of Oz (and sometimes feel the Witch of the West got the short end of the broom stick). 🙂  The directions to make it are pretty easy.  I may just have to make a pair to sit on my front porch under my door bell.

Happy Halloween!!

Back Pack Tags

Back Pack Tags from Kandy's Keepsakes

I made these back pack tags for the boys in my daughter’s pre-school class.  They started out as laminate counter top samples.  I came across a bunch that were just going to be thrown away.  So I sat down and decided to make these…

They measure 2 x 3 inches.  I cut coordinating scrapbook paper to the proper size and adhered them with Quick Dry paper glue.  I trimmed around the corners with scissors and used a sanding block to remove any uneven edges.  I used walnut ink around each edge of the tag to give it a finished edge.  Once the walnut ink was dry I applied the star and nascar or Spiderman stickers.  I stamped each child’s name on vanilla cardstock and dragged the edges of the cardstock in red ink and adhered them to the tag.  Next I added the binder ring and lastly added the ribbon for decoration.

Floral Vines Candle

This beautiful candle was designed by a fellow Angel, Laurie Willison.  It was so adorable I just had to share it with you.  It is so simple and easy to do.  Just stamp a piece of cardstock and wrap it around a votive.  Add whatever embellishments you’d like.  These would make great hostess gifts for all the upcoming easter celebrations.  She used the current stamp set of the month from The Angel Company called Floral Vines. 

Thank you, Laurie, for the inspiration!

Blocks for My Baby


I scrapped these cute wooden blocks for my daughter, Anne.  She loves playing with building blocks and I thought these would be perfect for her room, which is pink, green and white.  They measure 3 x 3 inches and are 1-1/2 inches thick with beveled edges.  I got them from the Oriental Trading Company scrapbook catalog.  They were very reasonably priced and came in a package of 6. 

I started off by spray painting them white.  I then pulled out a variety of odds and ends cardstock scraps that matched her room colors.  Each cardstock base measures 2-1/8 x 2-1/8 inch.  I then used a 1-7/8 scallop square punch to make the next layer, except for the A.  I used a 1-3/8 square punch to punch the piece of vellum.  I centered and adhered all the cardstock layers on to the blocks using YES paste (the best stuff 🙂 ).  I then used the Pewter Press Metal Alphabet from The Angel Company to spell out “Anne”.  I also adhered them to the blocks with YES paste.  I then used Princess Brads, Tropical Mini Brads, Paper Posies and Mimi Ribbon from The Angel Company for final embellishments.

Annie does love them.  It has been hard keeping her from using them in her construction projects.
