Authentique Bewitched Halloween Card Folio Tutorial

Halloween Card Folio Tutorial with Authentique Bewitched Collection Kit

Hello, Friends!  Can you hear that sound?  Know what it is?  It’s the sound of little Halloween ghosts, ghouls and goblins creeping on you!  There’s no time like the present to start getting ready for this spook-tacular holiday.  This Halloween Card Folio Tutorial made with Authentique’s Bewitched Collection Kit is super fun way to get the party started!

Card folios are a lovely cross between a card and a mini album.  Quick to make, fun to give and loaded with goodies, they’ve become my “go to” card style.

Then add in  a bewitching black doily, lots of lovely Halloween Ribbon and pretty purple WOC flowers to make it truly fiendishly fabulous.

I am so over the moon for this gorgeous black check paper.  And, dancing skeletons?  Yes, please!

The Details Sticker Sheet comes in the 12×12 Collection kit.  It’s so easy to make little tags and inserts with these beauties.  Just mat on black cardstock, and tuck into a pocket.  How could it be any easier than that?

I love the way this Bewitched collection hits just the right note for fun Halloween crafting.  It’s not gory and gruesome…nor is it too cutesy wootsey.  It’s fun and sophisticated and vintage fresh.

RRRChallengeBadge

Hello, Ribbon lovers!  Time for another fabby challenge at Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The theme this go round is “Things with Wings.”  This is always a fun challenge theme, especially when we are drawing close to Halloween.  I pulled out my gorgeous September Too Cute to Spook Ribbon Club Assortment and Graphic 45’s Rare Oddities collection to work up this Frightfully Sweet Halloween Card.

I fussy cut some creepy bottles from the paper collection to dress up this pretty grape patterned paper.

I had such fun making this Frightfully Sweet Halloween card.  I hope you enjoyed it, too!

Be sure to pop over to the RRR Blog where you’ll find all the rules for this challenge.  It’s easy to link up your own Things with Wings and ribbon project.  It does not have to be Halloween themed.

Halloween in Wonderland Altered Altoids Tin

Halloween in Wonderland Altered Altoids Tin:Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts Guest Designer

Hello, Friends!  I’m tickled pink to be back as Guest Designer for Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.  Sometimes, my pack rat tendencies are a good thing…as you will see in today’s project.  I think this Halloween in Wonderland Altered Altoids Tin is stinkin’ cute!

Altered Altoids Tin, Halloween in Wonderland, by Kathy Clement for Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts, Product by Graphic 45, Photo 1Honestly, every time I look at this little critter, I start grinning like the Cheshire Cat!   It’s a wonderful kit that will be coming to the Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts shop soon, so keep your eyes peeled!

Altered Altoids Tin, Halloween in Wonderland, by Kathy Clement for Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts, Product by Graphic 45, Photo 2The kit comes with 4 ATC sized frames that fit neatly inside the tin.  I used one of the Scalloped Altoids inserts on the front of my tin.  Tiny Alice Props (also coming soon) have been altered with Distress Paint and used to embellish the front of the tin.
