Happy Halloween!

Hello, Friends!

Happy Halloween!  Wow, can it already be the 31st of October?!?  I bet your house is getting ready for the Halloween festivities, just like ours.  Sadly, my oldest has a college test tonight, so she is stuck inside.  The younger one and I might head over to our church for some fun.  :)

Since I figure you've seen enough Halloween for this year, I thought I'd share this cute Monkey Page with you.  :)



Instructions:

Create a scrapbook page base from a sheet of cardstock. Cut "Phrase, Monkey Around," several "Leaves, Multi" and several "Monkey #2" from cardstock using the eclips machine and Oliver Cartridge. Cut a "Baby Banner" from cardstock using the eclips machine and Olivia Cartridge. Layer colors to assemble and embellish shapes with a black pen and white paint pen. Attach a square of white cardstock to the page, tucking a set of Leaves and a Monkey under it and adhering in place. If desired, embellish with stitching. Crop photos to size, mat on cardstock and adhere to the page. Add shapes to the page as shown.


Supplies Used:

Other Supplies: Cardstock, Paint Pen, Pen, Photograph, Sewing Machine (Optional)


Happy Crafting!

Sizzix Fresh Vintage Blog Hop: Flower, 3D #2

Only 3 projects left in the Fresh Vintage blog hop! Have you been enjoying the great projects posted by the oh-so-talented designers who are participating? I am so inspired every time!

The featured die today is the Flower, 3D #2 . This flower is packed with possibilities. On this die you will find four types of flowers to make. You can combine them or use separately. How can they all fit on here? They are designed to be used with paper or fabric that is folded into quarters or eighths. You place the open corners on the die edge and cut. Come over to my blog for more tips on creating these fabulous flowers. This die also makes a gorgeous fringed flower or grass!

Spiderweb Embellished Burlap Bag

Hello, Friends!

Here's a great idea for making your own Halloween Treat Bag! 




Instructions:

Die-cut a Spiderweb out of black felt and adhere to a store-bought burlap bag using craft glue. Be sure to place a sheet of paper inside the bag to absorb the excess glue that seeps through the burlap. When dry, remove the sheet of paper from inside the bag. Die-cut Pumpkin Jack from orange and green felt and batting, pin materials together and stitch in place. Die-cut a hanging spider (from the Candlelight Fright die) out of self adhesive felt and attach to the pumpkin. Embellish with a ribbon bow. Adhere the pumpkin to the bag. Place treats in the burlap bag and secure closed. Embellish the top of the bag with buttons, ribbon and a tag. For the tag, we stamped "Boo" onto a piece of cardstock, trimmed to size, inked edges and matted on patterned paper.

Other Supplies: Batting, Burlap Bag, Buttons, Felt, Glue, Ink, Patterned Paper, Pins, Ribbon, Self Adhesive Felt, Sewing Machine, Stamp, Treats

Sizzix Fresh Vintage: ScoreBoard Suitcase

Only 2 weeks left in the Fresh Vintage blog hop! I hope you have been having fun checking out all of the great projects posted by the talented designers who are participating. I know I have gotten tons of ideas for ways to use my diies more effectively. It's all about looking at them and seeing more than what it says on the label.

The featured die today is the Suitcase. This is a ScoreBoard die which means it should be used with a thick material like matboard or chipboard. ScoreBoard dies make beautiful sturdy boxes, totes and books... great for special occasions and events where you need to make a lot of them. The beauty of die cutting is that they all come out the perfectly every time! And then you get the fun part- embellishing!

Boo Card

Hello, Friends!

I love Halloween.  Not the big scary, zombie and monsters Halloween, but the sweet pumpkin little kid version.  ;)  I think that's why I'm drawn to this card by Debi Adams.  It's 'almost' scary, but at the same time, it's just sweeter.  ;)





Instructions:


Cut a piece of cardstock to size and fold to form card base. Emboss a sheet of patterned paper using the Cobwebs embossing folder. Apply ink or paint to brayer and roll over image. Trim and adhere to card front. Stitch on one side. Punch a circle out of cardstock. Die-cut Gothic Boo out of cardstock, embellish with glitter and adhere to the circle. Attach to card using foam dots. Wrap a ribbon around the card front and tie in a bow. Embellish with a threaded button. Die-cut Bats (from Bewitching Hour) out of cardstock, embellish with flocking and adhere to card.
