Graphic 45 Enchanted Forest Petite Album

Enchanted Forest Petite Album for Frilly and Funkie Challenge Blog

Hello, Friends!  Welcome to another great challenge at the Frilly and Funkie Blog.  Cec is our hostess this round, and the theme is “It’s a Small, Small World.”  In keeping with that, I’ve prepared an Enchanted Forest Petite Album.  But before we look at it, let’s see what Cec had in mind when she imagined this wonderful challenge.

Create or alter something small in a shabby chic or vintage style.  Your finished project can be anything from the size of an inchie, matchbook or domino to the size of a playing card or note card, which means anything from 1 inch to 4 inches and it does not have to be flat.  Be creative and let us know in your post just how small your project is.

And here’s my Enchanted Forest Petite Album….because it’s mini-er than a mini album!

I found a pattern for a really neat folded mini album that uses just one sheet of 12×12 paper.  (You can find it HERE.)  I had to cut the size down to make it work for this particular challenge, and after some trial and error, found that a 10×10 square worked perfectly.

A Look Inside the Enchanted Forest Petite Album

Here’s a quick look at the inside spread.  The pockets are formed in the folding, which is fun.  I fussy cut these gorgeous images from the 8×8 pad and created some fun inserts.

If you click on the little symbol in the lower right corner, you can view full screen.  And, if you want to stop and study a page, just click on the pause button.  I figured this was easier than overloading you with elebenty hunnerd detail photos.

Boo Bag for RRR Challenge 104

Boo Bag RRR Challenge 02Boo Bag for RRR Challenge 104: Happy Halloween

Note: This is my second post today.  Please scroll down for my Heartfelt Creations Wednesday post, or click HERE.  Thank You!

Hello, Friends!  I have the cutest little Boo Bag to share with you today!  In our area, Boo Bags have become a big trend.  You make a little goodie bag, decorate it and hang it on a neighbor’s front door, ring the bell and run away!  Well, this Boo Bag is all treats and no tricks.  I used Graphic 45’s An Eerie Tale and a small brown bag along with delicious ribbon from the Really Reasonable Ribbon September Ribbon Club.  Here’s a peeky:

Boo Bag RRR Challenge 05The bag was folded so that it has a pocket that measures 6″ wide by 4″ tall. I lined it with designer paper from the collection then stitched it up along the sides and bottom.  It’s surprisingly sturdy!

There’s a lollipop bouquet in the upper right hand corner along with some fun black curlicues I made with black jewelry wire.  The bag is also stuffed with three little tags where you can add a spooky greeting of your own.  The tags also make great bookmarks.

Boo Bag RRR Challenge 03I can’t get over how well these ribbons coordinate with this paper collection.  They are spot on perfect!  I love that!

Boo Bag RRR Challenge 02

Lots of stitching and a little bit of fussy cutting add so much fun texture and layering to this cute little bag.

Boo Bag RRR Challenge 06Here’s a photo without the tags so you can see the handle and lining.  This Boo Bag is ready to party!

Now it’s your turn!  Create your own Happy Halloween project and link it up at the Really Reasonable Ribbon BLOG.  I can’t wait to see YOUR Spook-tacular projects!

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheerio,

kathy
