Art with Heart Challenge; Projects to Love

I am back from my 2 week holiday and couldn't wait to create!  I missed all my crafty things, blogging and blogger peeps!  Here's a little something I whipped up to get me back into my craft room!
 
I know Valentines has passed and the chocolates have been snarfed.  However, the Art with Heart Challenge is all month long.  The Eileen Hull Inspiration Team is sharing their awesome projects with you each week! 
This month the Cookie Box die is looking for a new home.  So I decided to use my Cookie Box die and show you how I used it.
 
 
Did you know you can stack this die!  I cut the mat board 2 times so I could stack.  This die comes with a hinge so you can create this mega Cookie Box.
 
 
 
You can see here I stacked one on top of the other.

 
I had to decide the topper...Festive Gent or... Layered Butterfly!  Decisions...

 
I just got the mini paper rosette die from The Funkie Junkie Boutique and I LOVE IT!  I just had to add some.

 
Ohhh distress glitter how I love thee... In Festive Berries, Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry.  The Festive Gent is in Black Soot distress glitter.

 
 I attached the smaller mini rosette to the front.

 
Hey...who ate the Caramel Kisses!

 
I inked and decorated the inside of the cookie box die.
 
 
I filled the Cookie Box die with Kisses!
 
 
I added some tattered pinecone roses to the inside lid.  Then attached some twine to help with the weight.
 
 
I love all the layers, glitter and mini rosettes!

 
Make sure to enter this months Art with Heart Challenge and you could be the winner!

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…
