Good morning, my friends!
Time for another challenge for the Crafty Secrets Design Team, and this one was very open and extremely fun for me!
Sandy Redburn, the amazingly talented owner of Crafty Secrets, and her staff, have been working so hard on new products…there are so many new ones coming out, with more on the way…and our challenge was simply to use some of them today—not too hard, is it?!
I went a little crazy, though….I was so happy to be home and crafting in my own space that I made four projects for the challenge….and had so much fun doing it!
I focused on the new “Halloween” Creative Scraps this time. These are fabulous! Here they are:
Aren’t they great?! So many images, printed on both sides…here’s my first card:
LOVE this vintage owl with his winking eye…so fun! I used various pieces of the Creative Scraps for this one…the owl, the “Treat” bingo card, and the scallop edging on the top and bottom…if you look closely, you can see all the wonderful detail…so cool!
This is one of my favorite images in the set—love this sweet red-headed witch—I used a bit of the scrap set border on the card here, on the top and bottom of the houndstooth dp…again, so much wonderful detail!
Next, a fun little tag…
I love these little Dolly Dingle kids…always have! I cut out another pair of them to pop them up a bit,
added a “Costume Party” ticket from the scraps, a crazy bunch of ribbon and some pom-pom trim…fun!
And lastly, this one…
Again, so many fun elements to play with in the Creative Scraps! Love the alphabet tags spelling out “Halloween”! I sparkled up the watch with Dazzling Diamonds, but it’s hard to see it in the picture…
…and such a sweet little witch…a little bit of glow in the jack-o-lantern’s face and the kitty’s eyes…!
Well, that’s it for another Crafty Secrets’ challenge! I hope you’ll go and check out the Crafty Secrets’ blog for more new item information, and please go and visit the rest of the Design Team today…I know they’ll have LOTS of wonderful inspiration for you!
Have a wonderful day, and I’ll see you soon with something new!

PS. I use to live on the Calif central coast too, now I'm in the mountains, but ohhhh how I miss that ocean :)
