October's 12 Tags of 2012

Just squeaking this one in! I haven't tackled a tag since the Spring!  Or have you noticed?  I couldn't pass up October's Tag.  I think you all might stage a mutiny if I didn't!  OK, so here is my version.  I mixed it up a bit because I wanted to try some other stuff.  I can be a rebel like that;) Notice the "31"...ya you do!  But first things first...
I couldn't find the dry glitter, rock candy stuff Tim used but I did find this dry glitter stuff in the $1.50 bin at Michaels.  It's Studio G, Tinsel Glitter.  Works for me;) 

My tag is super duper cool.  I've been rusting everything in sight and I thought I would see if a tag rusts too.  Yes it does.  Then I ran it through my embossing folder...ummm it's a TH one and that's all I know.

My $1 Store has some AWESOME ribbon that shrivels when heated.  I have this rusty orange one I picked up.  The TH Tinsel was all out so I used some gold pipe cleaner, then ran my black paint dauber over it…

Silver and Black Toy Soldier

Holiday Cheer before Halloween?I'm sorry... Lets just say when I was done making this tag I was wondering how the heck I got there!  Sometimes it just happens that way.  I was looking for inspiration for the new Tim Holtz Toy Soldier die and I really wasn't finding much yet.  So, I am on my own for this one.  Using spray adhesive, adhere tin foil to tag size 8, then run through an embossing folder of your choice. Trim the edges, then paint black. Once dry, sand lightly to expose the foil. I stamped Versamark and clear embossed to seal. A little silver wire goes along way when attaching my wee light.  Attach to your ribbon.
 Cut on grunge Mover and Shapers 25, paint black and add a thick layer of Rock Candy for crackle. Then again with grunge I cut the middle gear from my die, apply 2 layers of silver embossing powder, sand edges and add some black distress ink. Mount the 25 with hot glue, then white glitter glue for icicles. Oh how I have a love/ hate with the Tattered Pi…

Spooky EEK

EEK is right! While I have been working Holiday type goodies I do need a break.  (OK things need dry time and then I get bored!)  So, to pass my time I whipped up this little gem!  My husband pointed out he didn't want to see the FALL Project I made anymore and that he wanted a Halloween saying! PFFT..ON IT!!!!  We agreed on EEK since we wanted a little saying. I picked up these small letters at Walmart, $1.47 each!  The skull is cut on Grunge Board, with my Movers and Shapers.  Then a little lime green glitter glue and topped off with Glossy Accents for shine!  Adhere with hot glue!
Same as above, only the "31" is from the Gothic Boo die and the glitter glue is BRIGHT PURPLE!
Yep, it's a pattern.  Only the spider is cut from Candlelight Fright and he's got some orange glitter glue!
All the paper is Authentique 6x6 paper I'm using up from last year.  I like this paper because the pattern is to scale for a smaller prokect.  Paint the sides black, glue the pap…

Halloween Treat "GLOVES"

Why not Glove it! Instead of using Halloween Party bags try something new, gloves.  These are a little creepy but can be cute for little ones.  The spider ring can be worn and a little treat for your ghosts and goblins. I posted my Boo-tiful Halloween cards the other day and said I had something to go with them! I cut 4 small tags from my Tiny Tags die then stamped "TREATS For You" from Scrappy Moms Stamps, Goosebumps stamp set.
I loaded 2 Rockets into each finger and filled the palm with 6 small chocolates.  Then tied off with ribbon that matches the cards I made.  Click HERE to see them.
On Halloween I can give them an extra special treat along with their cards.
You can also fill these with Halloween Party Favors, make them for the classroom (mine are too big now to do that) or if you get a handful of kids on Halloween night make them to hand out!  I get around 150 kids otherwise I would love to make these:)  Or if you're going to an adult party splatter some red paint…

Boo-tiful Halloween Cards

BOO I'm working on a little something for my kids and niece for Halloween.  Last year I created a bunch of Halloween card, Bevy of Monsters and they have been pretty Spooktacular with everyone.  So this year I made another quick and easy set.  The paper is Authentique 6x6 paper pack from last year and the cards are standard A2, 5 1/2" x 4 1/4".  All the spooky accents are my Movers and Shapers mini dies.  I made all 4 cards in about 20 minutes.  However, the dry time on the Movers and Shapers doubles that time. My little bat cut with cereal box, painted black and layered with Glossy Accents is rockin with BAT-itude! The stamps used with these cards are Scrappy Moms Stamps, called Goosebumps!  The Bat Fence punch is Martha Stewart and ribbon is Michaels.
When you open the card the spooky continues!
Love the skulls!  Again the stamp isGoosebumps and the Halloween Bakers Twine you can order through SMS
I paired the sentiment on the inside to the skull of the outside! Al…

How to make Witches Boots

Behold HALLOWEEN! Bet you've been wondering where my Halloween stuff has been.  Well, with projects like the Fall Wreath and my daughters Union Jack Headboard, I've been a little busy to spook!  I have been seeing witches boots a lot lately all overPinterest.  I really wanted to make a set.  Here, I'll show you how I made these Wicked Boots! Step1; I simply sketched out a design I thought was "witchen".  You can also find templates online.
Step 2; Trace your boots onto a piece of scrap wood with a Sharpie.  This one I found in my husband's wood bin.  I did ask so I wouldn't get in trouble.
Step 3; OK,poking fun at myself here.  But safety first, put on your Uni-brow safety goggles and get the jigsaw ready!
Step 4; Cut out your boots.  If they are a little rough don't worry, you'll be loading them up with spooky goodies!  But if you want to be picky, I would use a dremel to sand the little nooks.
Step 5; Dust off your car once you've covered it in …
