Spooktacular Wrapping Project

Hello! It's been awhile since I've posted anything. I've been busy trying to clean and reorganize my craft studio. It was such a disaster! I'm not even kidding! I literally had a 6" x 6" space to work on at my table. Piles of "stuff" EVERYWHERE---all over the floor, all over the table, on the shelves. It was BAD! I'm just about finished with the major overhaul. I'll share photos early next week (so long as you promise NOT to hold the "before photos" against me *wink*).

I also spent last Thurs-Sat helping out at the DeNami Design booth at a stamp show in Loveland, CO! Nami and her family are so incredibly sweet and fun to work with! At their show booth Nami demonstrates various projects and cards throughout the day!! She is AMAZING!!! I could watch her all day long! She is so incredibly talented and creative!!!

I was so inspired by Nami's projects at the show that I decided to use my DeNami Design stamps to make some wrapping paper for a little Halloween gift for my mom!


I had a great time making this!! I simply cut up an old brown grocery bag, layed it flat on the table, and stamped away!!!! I used the following DeNami Design stamps: Small Solid Circle B85, Small Stitched Circle D123, Polka Dot Circle D91, Halloween Stamp Set PF36, Double Circle F183. I stamped some of the spiders onto colored cardstock, cut out the fuzzy centers and popped them up for FUN!


I'm pretty excited about how this turned out! I hope you like it too! I can't wait to create more wrapping paper for other occasions (birthdays, Christmas, Valentine's Day, etc.)! The possibilities are endless!!

Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back tomorrow with the Halloween goodie bag I made for my dad!
