Monster Treat Bags

Greetings! I have a fun Halloween project today for Stampendous' 31 Days of Halloween. I was inspired by the Little Monsters stamp set, and thought they would look adorable on little treat bags.

I have a bunch of these little paper bags from Whisker Graphics. Since they are food safe, they are perfect for this quick project. I just stamped a few of the Little Monsters images on to each of the bags with VersaFine Clair ink in Nocturne and colored them all in with PITT pencils from Faber Castell.

The PITT pencils blend so nicely, that I was able to go for wild color choices and they still came out looking great! The pencils are nice and soft too, so I don't hurt my hands when I use them like I often do with regular colored pencils.

I love the polka dot bag! I thought that the eyeball balloon was perfect to coordinate with it.

I think it took me about 20 minutes to make both of these bags from start to finish. Nice and quick! Do you make treat bags for the kids of your neighborhood? Perhaps just for your own, or a few special children? I tend to only do something for my own kids, but these bags are so cute I may make a few more. Don't forget to visit the Stampendous Blog to see what other bloggers have created a spooktacular project today. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a fangtastic day!

Day 1 of 31 Days: Come as You Aren't

Greetings! It's officially the most wonderful time of the year! Today is Day 1 of the 31 Days of Halloween. I have participated in every 31 Days (what are we at? Year 5?) and I am so excited to be doing it again. For my first project. I use a bunch of Stampendous' newest Halloween images.

I started off with the fantastic witch label from the Halloween Labels Cling and Die Set and colored it with Zig Clean Color Markers. I then stamped the spiderweb and a spider from the Spider Fear set and embossed with with Star Dust embossing powder.

I created my card base out of Sweet Potato cardstock and stenciled the Swirls Stencil with Gray Flannel Memento ink. I didn't make it solid, rather I wanted the stenciled image to fade in and out of the background. Then I inked up the bottom edge of the card base with VersaMark ink and then heat embossed Marcastie Embossing Powder on top. The card needed a little something further, so I stamped a sentiment from the Spooky Wishes set on to ve…

Remembering Aletha

Greetings, Friends. This post today is part of a very special blog hop. We are celebrating the life of an amazingly talented artist and friend. The crafting community lost Aletha Jane Williams on May 5, 2019. Those of us that worked with her on Design Teams or on Challenge Blogs all agree that she was one of the sweetest and most talented women we knew. We are not here to mourn her loss though. This hop is happening in conjunction with a very special celebration of her life and her art that her husband Bob is holding in her home city of Tulsa, Oklahoma. Please join us in honoring our incredibly creative friend Aletha.
My card features the "Remembering Aletha" Sprite, which Mitzi (owner and artist of Aurora Wings) created specifically for this hop. She is generously giving the digi away to all, over on her blog. This sweet Sprite looks so much like Aletha, and I know she would have been honored. If you download this digi for yourself, please be sure to give a huge "thank…


Greetings! I don't have a project to share with you today, but rather, an announcement.
I have decided to completely revamp my blog, and move it to a new site. I've been blogging at 21st Century Pillow Book for over 10 years now, and it's been wonderful. But the "Pillow Book" aspect got lost somewhere along the way. If you don't know what that is, read my description in the blog header, or do a quick search. They are really very cool.

Anyway, I thought it was due time for me to work on a new blog, more of a brand, etc. So, I invite you to now join me over at I've still got some polishing up to do, and a whole lot of learning, as WordPress is completely different from Blogger, but I am really excited for this new site. I've wanted to do this for a long time, and I am happy to finally be getting it done. Bear with me as I figure out the best way to make it all look and flow. I thankfully have some help with that. But I think you'…
