12 Tags of 2013- October

12 Tags of 2013... it's OCTOBER and I made 2!!! Because that's how much I love this time of year and technique.
 
I always love anything crafty this time of year.  Bet you didn't know that about me.  For this tag I had the stamps...and...that was about it.  However, I am collecting more inky things ( like this post) so I decided to get ALL the Fall paints.  (It's not a problem if I use them...right)  I LOVE this technique and since I LOVE Fall/Halloween I went for them all.  Oh and the Distress Glitter...and the Distress Inks.
 
Here's my version of the October Tag.  I don't have the frame.  But that's OK, I cut the frame on grungepaper using my Cricut's Sophisticated cartridge.
 
I really love the script in the back.  The smoky technique is a great Halloween trick...so spooky!
Well, I went for the scary kitty!  Truth be told, I had the little owl and moon that were cut and given to me.  And...I'm pretty sure I cleaned them up into the recycle bin:/
 
A little pop of bling for the bottom.  I really wanted some hardware.  So I added the Skull n' Crossbones.
***BONUS TAG***
 
I had all this ink left on my craft sheet so I decided to swipe another tag...and then 1 more. I might as well make 2 tags then and that allowed me to ink and glitter my BIG Crescent Moon.
 
Two Tags are always better than 1!
I love making this month's tag!  And there was IS glitter EVERYWHERE!

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…

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 …

A BEVY OF MONSTERS

***WARNING...CUTE ALERT***

The Monsters and Creeps are out and around.  So lock your doors to keep safe and sound.
If you are looking for a great Halloween card that is UNDER 10 MINUTES to build this is it.  I made a variety of these to give you different ideas of creeps you can make.  From start to finish these Halloween cards are a breeze and would be perfect for a class, office and for some friends.  I made these in between making projects...mostly waiting for things to dry!  The googlie eyes are different sizes make them so cute. 
All the cards are stamped with Scrappy Moms Stamps Halloween set Bewitched! Mummy

Frankenstein
Candy Corn
Vampire, I love this one!  I didn't distress the white glitter paper.  Then added this red glitter glue to the fangs.
Ghost, I posted this the other day HERE
All my fun cards together
I cut the cards to 5x5.  Then I cut a 4 3/3x 4 3/4 black for the black behind the googlie eyes.  Pick your coloured carstock and rip.  I distressed the torn edges a bit then…
