Pumpkin Boo Card

Halloween never seems like the holiday to be handing out cards, but I actually always seem to find a reason to.
Maybe it's because I have so many Halloween cards lying around.
Either way, here is a cute layout to get you in the spirit!

Halloween Cards

In need of some cute Halloween Cards?
These are really easy to put together.

I bought a sheet of Halloween stickers FOREVER ago, and decided to put them to good use.
I used the same layout for each card.

Then I put the stickers on white paper, cut them out, and raised them on the cards.
Really easy, super cute!
Happy Crafting!

Thinking of You Ribbon Tag Card

This is the cutest card I've seen in a while!
I absolutely love it, and it is all because of the gold ribbon...
It just pulls it all together.

Double Stack Fall Candle Display

This started out as an 'autumn' decoration in my house,
but I quickly fell in love with it and it acutally stays up year round.
Luckily it actually matches my couches and other decor.

Either way, I thought it might produce some 'autumn inspired' ideas...

I bought this killer candle stand at Tai Pan.
The kind you cant just put a plain old candle on and call it good.
It needed some flair...

It is also very tall, so the candle needed some height as well.
I had two old 3 wick candles that I stacked on top of eachother.

They were slightly banged up, and I needed something to bring them together,
so I wrapped some scrapbook paper around the middle to cover the seam.
Then I tied some rafia around that - leaving plenty of excess to show from behind.

I took some fall colored "berries" and wrapped it around the rafia.

It still needed a little something (obviously), so I got some matching fall decor.

I already had 3 tin stars, so I tied rafia onto them so they would go along with it all.

Then I put it all together...

Love it!
