It's A Spooky Halloween with My Mind's Eye

Been having a little spooky fun with some Halloween projects....and
thought this is a perfect week to share, with Halloween coming up
this Thursday!

This LO was created using My Mind's Eye (MME) newest collection
for Halloween, called "Happy Haunting":

This is actually page one of a two'll see that tomorrow!  I used
the chipboard from the MME collection, every embellishment is from that
set, except the glassine envelope....I made a tag out of the paper, and then
added a piece of the chipboard to slip into the gives a ghostly
look to the chipboard piece inside.   I did also use a bit of Trendy Twine
(orange licorice) here and there.  And the circle under the "31" chipboard piece
was fussy cut from one of the Happy Haunting collection papers.  Love that little
bit of glitz and glitter!

Thanks for stopping by today!  More spooktacular goodies tomorrow!

Farmhouse Paper Co. Album Take 2

As are the next pages of the album using the Farmhouse Paper Co.
Country Kitchen collection!

Page 4&5:

These recipe cards were cut out from a 12x12 paper that was printed with them,
also fussy cut out labels from another 12x12 sheet.

Page 6&7:

Using a bit of Trendy Twine on this page, and some of the stickers (they came
in the same package as the recipe tabs I put on the edge of the pages).

Here are 8&9:

The mini recipe card on this page is a sticker....more cut out labels here too.

And on to 10&11:

Love that ball jar chipboard sticker!  And the china plate paper really reminds me
of grandma's house.  I'm really excited to put the pics in this album!

Here is a peek under the recipe card on page 11:

I used a Martha Stewart punch on several of the pages....reminds me of an
old fashioned eyelet lace.  And if you notice.....I tried to coordinate the
recipes with my pages....this cherry/dessert page has the recipe for an
angel-cherry dessert when it's flipped over.

Whew....1/2 way there!  Will be posting the rest of the book tomorrow!

Thanks for stopping by!

Cookin' Up Memories with Farmhouse Paper

I've long wanted to do a recipe album that used some of our "family recipes"
along with pics of my mom, and both of my many good times
making these family recipes!

When the Farmhouse Paper Co. Country Kitchen collection came along....
yep, knew it was the perfect collection!

This weekend I'll be sharing pics of my album that I created for Hannah's
Home Accents, the LSS in Antioch, IL as a kit.....remember, you can get
this kit in person, or have Hannah's ship one to you! 

Here is the front cover:

And gotta was fun to see it over on the Farmhouse Paper Co. blog
a couple of days ago!  It was posted HERE.  Thanks Farmhouse for the shout
out for both Hannah's and my album!

And page the chipboard in this collection:

Page 2 & 3:

pages tomorrow....pop back and say hi!  Let me know what your favorite
kitchen memory is!
