Halloween Bucket

It's that time of year when people are starting to think of Halloween. I've recently received a few questions about the Halloween Bucket I made a few years ago that is in the Project Gallery. The images on the sticks are from Paper Doll Dress Up. I cut two of each image and glued them together around the edges of the side and top. Then, I painted tiny dowels orange, cut them to size and slide the image on. The bucket is a plastic witches cauldron filled with candy. The title, Happy Halloween, is a font that was cut with a Wishblade.

Mom's Sewing Box

During her lifetime, my mom was an amazing seamstress. She made all sorts of clothes, mostly dresses, for my sisters and me. I remember her big wooden sewing box. It had so many little boxes and drawers. I decided to try to recreate it using paper. The design is basically four boxes that are attached with paper "hinges" and brads. I used Design Studio and the George and Basic Shapes cart to create the boxes. The beautiful pattern paper is by Cosmo Cricket and aptly named Remnant. I used Mini Monograms for the shapes to make the tag and used the Cuttlebug Language of Love embossing folder. My mom used her box to hold buttons and ribbons and lace and such that she would use to adorn her sewn creations. I'll use my little paper box to hold buttons and ribbons and flowers and such to embellish my little tags and cards. Thanks Mom!  :)

Heart Basket/Box

Welcome to the Anything Goes Blog Hop celebrating the one year Blog Birthiversary of our hostess, Stephanie, from Once upon a Paper. You can start at the beginning of the hop at  
Stephanie is celebrating her Blog Birthiversary with Seven Days of Giveaways so make sure you check it out each day for the next week. 

For the celebration, I have created a gift or favor box using hearts for the sides! Probably better suited for Valentine's Day but Anything Goes!!!

There are many versions of this bag but the one I used for designing was on Kirsten's blog. I changed the design so that I could cut everything with my Cricut. I used Design Studio and several carts: George and Basic Shapes, MS Elegant Cake Art and Baby Steps.

Thank you for stopping by! The next stop on the hop is Renee at

Happy Blog Birthiversary Stephanie!!! :)
