Too Cute to Spook!

Too Cute to Spook!

I welcome you to my (semi-new) blog. We missed the renewal notification from the host company and I lost the web address. Thus, a re-birth of Krista’s Paper Cafe is now found at www.KristasPaperCafe.US (caps added for emphasis). The top level domain (or part the part after the dot) is the only change. I appreciate if you will leave comments. I have to build up the Paper Cafe again. Please feel free to invite your friends. Thank you for coming . . . back!

Do you celebrate Halloween? Our family does. We try to stay away from the creepy stuff. But now I have 2 teenage boys and they think it’s all about the creepy!! I still side on the cute stuff! The crafts I have today are all too cute to spook!

The Peeking Crow is a cut file from KaDoodle Bug Designs. He measures 5″ tall by almost 4″ wide. It has been a long time since I did paper piecing. I love it! It is so fun. I layer the pieces by adding an extra piece of card stock behind some of the pieces to give more dimension. Nice. You can use this little guy on a scrapbook layout, a card, or stand alone.

I have made just a few cards. The digi stamps all come from Bugaboo Digi Stamps. I think you will like how I use a selection of kids dressing up for a Halloween Costume theme. Hopefully I inspire you to use your digis in a different way. I’m still just playing with digis. So, I just used colored pencils or watercolor pencils. I used the pumpkin from the above cut file to add a bit more to the scenes. All 3 of the cards measure 6″ tall by 4.5″ wide.

However you choose to celebrate, I hope you have fun. Especially if you have little ones in your life.

Here I am showing you a view of each from the side to highlight the layers.
