Damask Divas Blog Hop - Huntington Paper Pack

Hello and Welcome to the Damask Divas November blog hop.  This month, we are featuring projects made with the new Huntington paper pack.  If you came from Jamie's Blog, you are in the right place.  If you have jumped here on your own, feel free to start at the beginning HERE.  You can also visit the Damask Divas website to see the full list of participants.

Here is my project.
Dressing up an unused picture frame is a great way to add a personal touch to your home decor.  It also would make a great gift.

I inked and then distressed the leaves with my little rolly thing to make them look crinkly and almost real.  The cuts came from both Artiste and Artbooking.  They were cut at 1", 1 1/2", and 2".

Then I arranged them around the tag and added some opaques.  
The tag was cut at about 2 3/4" x 5 1/2".   
I used the craft room to make it fit perfectly to the size of the stamp. 

Thank you for stopping by!  I hope that you enjoy the projects and get some inspiration to create a fun craft of your own.  The next blog on the hop is Lilian Yea.  Remember, if you get lost, click HERE to start from the beginning or go to the Damask Divas website HERE.

Artiste Halloween Treat Boxes

Who is ready for Halloween??  Im not, but I am getting close!  I was looking through one of the old idea books for inspiration and I saw a monster treat box made using the Artiste Cartridge.  I definitely wanted to recreate it and here is how it turned out.

I decided to make a girl one using one of the new paper packs called Laughing Lola.  I used heart cuts from the Artbooking cartridge to make the antennas.  The green guy was made using sweet leaf cardstock and paper from the Chantilly paper pack.  These treat boxes were cut at 5" so they are roomy enough for candy or other treats like cookies or small toys.


This treat box was quick and fairly simple to make.  I love using the Idea Books for inspiration, they are not just catalogs!  You can find the recipes for all of the projects in the current Idea Books HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you find some inspiration to create a fun craft of your own!
