My first challenge to all of us it to make a Christmas card or tag for a gift that has a vintage feel to it. For some reason, these tags feel very vintage to me, and it is what inspired this challenge.
The second part of my challenge is to do a technique that you have always thought about trying but just never got around to it. For me, that’s going to be making a “shaker” element for my card.
Here is a photo of my shaker flowers for the first challenge.
To make them I punched a circle from the top scallop circle, then taped a transparency square to the back. I then made a circle out of OTC pop up squares to hold the beads in. I placed the beads inside, and then put another colored scallop circle on the back!
Materials Used: SU scallop punch, SU 1" circle punch, transparency, pink beads, MM rub-on (heidi font), OTC popup squares, misc - stems and kraft cardstock
I hope you will come join us if you have time! I'll be back a little later to show you my vintage tags!

Thought I would give you a quick share - something that I made quite awhile ago.
All I did was add paper and stamped images to giant binder clips to make photo holders. If you want to do this, make sure you check to see that it will hold a photo before you start working on it. I learned that the hard way.
Well, that's it for today - night all!

October is always such a busy but fun time for me. My boyfriend and I celebrated 10 years together on the 11th. I know the question is right around the corner, and you'll know when it happens by checking back here! My boss just retired, and we threw her a surprise retirement party last week - she loved it! I have also been getting ready for my annual fall craft party (Craft Fest - I hold it during the opening weekend of deer hunting season).
I am hoping to post on here rather regularly, but you know how that goes. Wish me luck! :)
