Crafty Secrets Linky Party

I'm LATE!  I'm LATE!
LOL!  I know ... I sound like the rabbit in Alice in Wonderland, but it's the LAST DAY to enter the Linky Party going on over at Crafty Secrets!  
Where did the time go????????

My first creation utilizes some of their new Halloween Digitals and I just LOVE what they are doing with their new digital line!  Be sure to pop over and check it out!  They are moving to a DIGITAL LINE so all the clear stamps & several other products are REDUCED considerably!!!  You don't want to miss out on this sale!  Their products are always fabulous ... you'll love them!

 Isn't this cool!!!
The background paper as well as all the images are from their Halloween Digitals.  The only additions are the Petaloo flowers and Jambo lace roll tape as my embellishments.  For the 'matting' on the small printed tags, I have simply used a round tip black marker and gone out around each one to give the illusion of another layer (less bulky that way).

Other Qualifying Challenges:
Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes
Pile It On - Patterned Paper
The Squirrel and the Fox - Anything Goes

 For my second creation, I have created a Christmas Z-Fold card utilizing the Crafty Secrets "Christmas  Images & Journal Notes" booklet.  I just LOVE these booklets for quick cards!  The images as well as the journaling notes are fabulous ... either used together on a creation (as I have done here) or independently!

For an easy tutorial on making your own Z-Fold card, scroll down or go to my Tutorial Tab under the header of my blog.  There you will find additional samples and links to other tutorials too.

Other items used on this card:
Papers:  Scraps of DCWV design paper, blue cs, white cs
Accessories:  Fiskars postage stamp scissors, MS icicle border punch

Other Qualifying Challenges:
 Robyn'sFetish #124 - More than one fold
The Crafty Pad Challenge - Scraptastic (using up scraps)
 Hiding in my craft room - Super Scraps Saturday (using up scraps)
Jingle Belles Rock - Going Postal

Well I'd better get these posted to the party before I run out of time!
