Owl You Need is Love


Owl I had to do was post this card with my Be My Valentine post...but I forgot about it.  When I started my husbands Valentins project this little 3'x 3' card was the first thing I made.  But he quickly became buried under scraps.  Then on the morning of Valentines I remembered he hadn't made it into the first bag my husband had to open.  Oops.  I rushed down to my craft room, iPhone in hand and snapped these off quickly.  After all hubby was heading to the airport at any moment. 

Scrappy Moms Stamps has a brand new set, Owl Occasion.  What was I going to create with all these "cute" sentiments.  It was a bit of a worry until I remembered I had this stamp.  How cute is this sentiment...I'm singing the Beatles now!  I added red jewel hearts to his eyes and tied off a piece of ribbon.  The stamp is coloured in marker to get the red and black.


Ohhhh how I adore the inside.  I stamped just the top of my little Owl as if he is peeking in.  And then stamped again from Owl Occasions "Owl Miss You".  It's like he wants to make sure not to miss a thing.


With the Owl Occasions set you get this cute little Owl stamp.  I I stamped it on the back of the envelope in the red and black again. 


Sorry this never made it into the post it was meant to be in.  I had so many gifts to craft I just forgot about this one.  It's a sweet simple card.  And the inside detail is just the best.

Have a great weekend!

Altered Halloween Advent Calendar w/ Video

WOW, I think this is my biggest Halloween project yet.  It took me 5 days to complete and I could have kept adding!!!  As you know I adore Halloween and yes I have begun bringing out my Halloween goodies.  Lots of photos in this post and there is so much to see.  So lets get into the project and get you inspired for Halloween!
I was asked by Scrapbooker's Paradise (where I teach) to make one of these Kaiser Craft Shadow Boxes...with a Halloween Theme!!!  Arm twisted and mission accepted.  I am going all Tim on this one! I started by spraying all the pieces with a Hammered Finish in a gun metal grey. The set even comes with numbers;) I used My Minds Eye Happy Haunting paper to create each box with a great pattern paper background.  Then using all my Tim Holtz goodies and $1 Store finds I went to town decorating.  I used various numbers from the rub ons, metal numbers, wooden and those that came with the Shadow Box.   Be sure to dry fit before gluing!  It took me 4 hours to die cut…

Halloween Decor- Pennies a project

SIX PROJECTS ON A DIME!

Are you looking for some Halloween Decor ideas?  I have a few for you.  These are projects I have been working on for the past couple of weeks.  BANNERS
I made Boo and Beware for my 2 corner windows.  These are cut from Birthday Bash, using Recollections Halloween paper and Stampin Up Halloween Paper.
I made this Tim Holtz Banner, "Trick or Treat".  Hangs over my spooky dining room.  Black sheets are there for the holidays.
Cut from Birthday Bash and the frames/ font are a Sophisticated cut.  I added beads from Walmart and skulls are a $1 store necklace cut up.
This BIG Banner is "Happy Halloween"
The charms are Walmart and the tulle is from an old Halloween costume.  This glitter spiders are a $1 store find.

Happy Halloween!
Candles
Cheap-o-la...You can make this on a budget...promise!  I picked these candelabras up from Michaels for $12 at 50% off.  I bought them on a day they there was an additional 25% off so in the end they were less than…

Apothecary Curiosities Coffin

Creepy coffin, I love this one!  I saw these little wooden coffins at the $1 Store and had to get one.  I ended up making this for a class and everyone loved making them.  Halloween is the best!  All the creepy stuff I get away with creating! I picked up these great skeletons at Michaels on a string of garland...6 per rope.  With a little force he fits! I made a template of the coffin and cut Tim Holtz Laboratorie paper to fir in the back. I accidentally broke my skeleton's arm.  Oops!  So, I glued his arm holding the glitter pumpkin.  SAVE! I picked up these skulls on a bracelet for $1.  Layering the Curiosities Coffin is key!  You want to look at the layers, like mesh, pen nib and a spider! I added the "shelves" using popsicle sticks cut to size.  This way it has a cabinet feel. The Apothecary Remnant Rubs are so perfect of the glass bottles full of eyes! Adding a little Spanish Moss makes it all creepy. I LOVE HIM! After the sprayed coffins were dry I sanded them to …
