autumn tag set

It's a beautiful autumn morning, which means it's going to be a perfect day for crafting!  I used pretty products from "My Favorite Fall," including a beautiful embossing folder and even cute little puffy stickers to add some fun interest to this little tag set:

You'll also find some chipboard mixed in - I love adding lots of different textures to my paper projects!

I cut apart the wagon full of pumpkins and added the pumpkins to the truck - I love the dimension it added!

Several layers and a few different techniques for adding dimension = so. much. fun.

Do you like to make tags?  What do you use them for?  I am thinking these will be cute added to a stack of homemade pumpkin chocolate chip cookies.  They will make a delicious gift even more fun and festive!

quick and easy halloween banner

Whether you go all-out, or stay minimal with your Halloween decorations, there's always room for a quick and easy banner, right?  Today I wanted to share this easy-to-make Halloween banner featuring the "Trick or Treat" collection by Echo Park Paper.

It's easy to whip up a banner with just one patterned paper and a few coordinating solids!
I used my Silhouette machine to cut out the base for these banner flags from a pretty plaid paper - and chose a little less traditional shape with the rounded bottom. I cut large circles from solid orange, and letters from black. I added the gray strip along the top for a bit of extra interest - plus it makes each flag a little bit more sturdy for hanging.

I cut the bat shape from black paper and attached it with a foam adhesive square. (There's also a foam adhesive square behind the orange circle).

I used bats on every other banner.  The others have a cute little ghost! Here's a quick tip for assembling Mr. Ghostie. When I cut him out, his eyes were "hollow."  I didn't really like that (but it's fine if you do...you can just skip this part). So I cut a small circle of black paper.

I flipped over the ghost and added adhesive around his face.

Then I placed the black circle right over his eyes (be sure the black is showing on the front). I also added foam adhesive to his body.

See how cute he looks?

And I popped him right on his letter:

trick or treat halloween layout

Does this layout look familiar?  I created it with the fun "Happy Halloween" collection from Carta Bella Paper.  I love the classic colors and vintage art in this collection!

It was hard to choose one embellishment, so I used many!

I used foam adhesive behind some of the stickers (like the banners) to add extra dimension.
