more we are memory keepers projects

These projects feature the WRMK new line, Spookville.  You can check this line out at CHA tomorrow, if you're there.




I stitched the grid on my layout using the straight stitch head for the Sew Easy tool and the new baker's twine to match the Spookville line.  I really like the stitching with the baker's twine--it's a bit unexpected and fun.

Here's a simple card.  You may be thinking to yourself, hmmm...that looks familiar.   That's because I recycled one of my favorite card designs.  The original's HERE.




The last project is a Halloween countdown I made using the haunted house paper.  I cut out the windows and doors with my craft knife, and backed the openings with matching papers.  I then wrote various fun Halloween activities (make tissue ghosts, watch a scary movie, bob for apples, carve pumpkins, etc) and re-attached the cut out doors/windows using brads so you can swing them open.  I added number stickers to the openings, one for each day for the month of October.  The idea is that each day, starting on Oct. 1st, your child opens a door and you complete the activity to get ready for Halloween.  Enjoy!

Your Halloween Countdown is awesome! I LOVE Halloween! Is the total project 12x12? And did you draw a pattern for the house yourself? Are the embellishments (cat, bat, etc) part of the paper line? Very, very cool!

Thanks, Sylvia in the SW

Hi Sylvia in the SW! Thanks so much for your kind words. I love Halloween too. =) The total project size is 12x12, and the house is part of a 12x12 paper from the Spookville line here: http://www.weronthenet.com/Spookville

i just cut out the house from the paper, and adhered it to another background paper with pop dots. the bats are embossed stickers from the same line. hope that helps. =)
