Halloween in Wonderland cards

Truthfully, I made these card in the beginning of September. 
I have been waiting until the calendar page turned to October to send them out.  Last year a friend mentioned to me, "I didn't know people sent cards out for Halloween".  Oh, little did they know that I do not necessarily need a holiday to send cards out.  I think that is the best part of making cards, being able to send a little note to someone out of the blue. 

Back to these Halloween cards.  I just love this Graphic 45 Halloween in Wonderland paper.  I especially love the tags and the playing cards.  Tracking this paper down however was a little bit of an adventure.  I try to support local scrapbook stores as often as I can.  I often find myself calling stores in search of a particular line or brand of paper.  In this case, Halloween in Wonderland was a tricky to track down.  I could find none in Tacoma, but truthfully there is only one scrapbook store in Tacoma (Scrap That! which I love).

I was able to find a few pieces at Papermuse in Sumner, but they were almost sold out (and that was back in the beginning of August). I was able to track down the remaining papers in the line and the tag sheet at The Scrapbook Nook in Kent. 

One free Sunday afternoon, a little bit of ribbon, some basic cardstock and some Stickles later, viola!


  1. Your cards have inspired me to move beyond the buying paper and watching TV stages of card making. Tomorrow is a new day and I have much hope for productivity.

    I love them all!

  2. Your cards are amazing! I just love this line and seeing everyone making such incredible things AKA works of art is a real treat!
