November Freehands Scraps Reveal | Sweater Weather

Hi All,
I don't know about where you live, but we've been having the most beautiful fall weather here. The trees reached their peak color just in time for a gorgeous Halloween. Now, today, the gray November days are upon us, with rain, cooler temps and a chance of a flurry for some of us in our area. Really puts me in the mood, to stay in and cozy up to a good book, or even better, a great collection of scrappy supplies. Enter in: "Sweater Weather," November's kit @ Freehand Scraps. It is a lovely collection of patterned papers and gorgeous embellies that are sure to get your creative juices flowing.
Without further adieu, here are a few of my creations:

 I've been finding myself journaling on shipping tags a lot lately. It's a nice (and quick) way to get my documentation done and still have a pretty layout in the end.
 Ethan found this toad by our house. He thought he really enjoyed hanging out on our porch and that's why he didn't move muc. Mick thinks poor Mr. Trevor the Toad was nearing his amphibian pearly gates. :( Nonethelesss, Ethan really enjoyed having him around and named him Trevor after Neville Longbottom's toad in the Harry Potter series.
 And below is my favorite project from the kit. I call it my "funky chunky" necklace. I have been hoarding a bunch of vintage buttons from my grandmother and elsewhere, and knew I wanted to make a necklace with it. I will be posting a tutorial here and over at FHS later this month with steps on how I made it. A big shout out to my sweet friend, Lexi for the inspiration. She created an adorable necklace earlier this year with vintage buttons and May Arts ribbon.

Hope you all are having a fabulous week. I am enjoying the last day visiting with my dad before he heads on to my aunt and uncle's house. I hope to post again soon with some week in pics.


  1. Gorgeous projects! I love those little mini rulers!

  2. Your pages look fun! It makes me want to scrapbook again.. :)



  3. I remember seeing this on one of your pictures. :) The little holder you have to hold the homemade card, Where did you get this and what is it called??? Would love to get one.:)

  4. It's an antique "frog" used for making floral arrangements and holding the flowers in place. You can find for sale on ebay/elsewhere on the internet by googling, or just check out local thrift/antique stores. HTH. :)


Thank you for stopping by! I appreciate and read everyone of the comments you leave here. :)
