Free Digi Friday- I Owe You 3!!!!

Hello crafty and stampy friends!!

I have not been on top of my free digi Fridays for the last few weeks.  Our printer broke down and I am still waiting for it to get fixed.  Hopefully soon.  So, I can't share any cards made with digis but I can share some digis I found in the last few weeks that *I* think are super cute!!

Hope you'll enjoy them and please leave comments to the artists to thank them for their generosity!!

A Bit Out of the Box


I rarely make home made crafts.  Not my forte  :)  But, I saw some Halloween bottles on eBay and thought I could do that!  So, here's what I came up with.   Got some bottles at the thrift store, printed labels found by googling Halloween bottle  labels images.  Threw in some fake spiders, eye balls and skeleton from Michael's.  I adhered the labels with Modge Podge and covered the entire bottles to give them some texture and age them a bit.  Died some cheese cloth with tea.

 My sweet cat had to inspect them  :)  Hope you like this idea!  Super quick and simple!!!
