Batty Friends


What a couple of cute friends!
BatsFriends from Conie Fong is the cute
digi stamp that makes this card so cute.
The die cuts are all from Cricut Design Space.


The orange circle is a rosette from Ribbons and Rosettes from Cricut Design Space.
The bats are colored with Prismacolor pencils.

Penelope Pumpkin on a Memory Dex base

I brought two of my favorite Etsy shops together for this
cute project!

Penelope Pumpkin by Conie Fong

and October Memory Dex Set from Paper Crafting on a Dime.


The flowers are vellum with black embossing on them.

Paper Crafting on a Dime is a young company just starting out.
Michelle, the owner, is an awesome person to work with.
(So is Conie.)

Hope to see you creating some of the fun things from these 
two sites.

making). Glued them on the papers and it was done.

Fantasy Dragon Suspended Spinner Card

Today I created a Suspended Spinner Card.
I used the digi from the Fantasy Bundle at KoalaTCrafts
called Dragon.


To make the card, I used a tutorial by Jen Evers of KoalaTCrafts on YouTube. On Jen's YouTube channel you will find
a lot of tutorials to help you learn
new things.
Jen's blog is here. She has a schedule there so you can see
when she does live sessions.




Jen really does a good job showing and explaining as she 
makes the card.


Getting ready to let him spin.

I used embroidery floss for the string that the dragon spins on.
I coloured the dragon with Prismacolor pencils.
Glitter was added around the opening for some sparkle.


Hope you will take the time to try the tutorial and make
some fun Suspended Spinner Cards of your own.
Jen has many other video tutorials on YouTube as well.
