Halloween Frame...

It's amazing what you can do with cereal boxes!!... my new Cricut Cartridge - October 31st... and a new Martha Stewart Halloween Fence Border Punch..

I know Halloween is over but I didn't want to post this until I had gven it to my friend Bertha, first..

Frames are pretty easy to make... basic shapes like squares, rectangles, hearts, circles.. whatever you can think of.. and whatever size opening you want...the decorating is really all about having some fun...

So go for it !!

Toilet Paper Roll Tutorial...

As promised, here is a slide show tutorial for my toilet paper roll mini album..( and my first YouTube Video!! )

You will probably notice that many of my supplies are Italian... hee hee.. but you can find such things as acrylic paints.. quick drying glues and sealers here in the western hemisphere, too...

You will need to adjust some of your measurements, based on the size of your toilet rolls..

Close ups of the finished pages and information on the papers are available on the original posting of the album:

Hope this helps!!
