It is really hard to pick a favorite line from October Afternoon, but I will admit that I am still hoarding every last piece of the Witch Hazel collection! I picked another new collection to see how well I could mix the old and new collections together. Here's what I came up with!
Each tag is made up of two tags, one larger and one smaller using a combination of pattern paper from Saturday Mornings and cardstock. By having one larger and one smaller tag layered on top of each other, it really made creating the layered look super quick and fun! You can see here on my little girl witch, the Saturday Mornings Toast paper and Coffee paper. Then I just layered the little girl witch, the poison label from Witch Hazel, and added the spoon and fork from Saturday Mornings! For any part of the stickers that hang off, I applied a brush of baby powder to them to take away the stickiness.
Next, is the star witch herself! You may not be able to see the stitching from the front, but on each tag, I did a zig zag stitch in black thread. I did this for texture and to have the strings hang loose. I also added the same stitching to the ephemera witch card I used under Witch Hazel here on this tag. Peeking behind the top white tag, you can see I used part of the tree sticker, and behind that is the same Saturday Mornings Coffee pattern paper from the first tag. To finish her off, I just added the chipboard "BEWARE!".
I had to work in one of the little kids from the Saturday Mornings Syrup paper. I think this paper would be perfect for a Halloween layout as well. I loved the cat from the ephemera pack, but since I wanted that paper to show, I trimmed just the cat part of that card to adhere on either side of my tag. I still have the letter stickers from the Witch Hazel collection so added "boo," then finished it off with a chipboard button, and stickers from the collection. Then added the cloud sticker from Saturday Mornings. You can see more of the stitching here since I didn't layer too much on top.
Each tag is finished with a simple bow in black to attach to treats for my daughter's teachers. I would buy every piece of this collection again I think. And I love how well it works with Saturday Mornings. Hope you are inspired to pull out your stash of OA collections and see what you can come up with. I would love to see!
