Creepy Crawly and Hanging Things

I have always wanted a Halloween Tree... a BIG one.  But I really don't want to store a big tree and all that goes with it.  I found this wiry 2ft tree that's easy to store and the decorations took no time at all to make.


I cut a bunch of my creepy movers and shapers with mat board.  Collected my distress spray stains and distress glitters ready to add creepy Halloween colour!  I wrapped a Twisted Edge cut around the base.


To hang each decoration I punched a small hole into each die cut then sprayed each one with distress spray stains.  Onto the Candy Corn Tree!


Mask off each layer to be sprayed with packing tape.  See my quick Instagram video below.  The tree came with this cat and a tombstone.  So you guessed it, I covered them up.


I cut the Headstone, inked it up and distressed it.  Then I added a bunch of creepy mini holly and DEAD from Alphanumeric Marquee.


Glittery pumpkins, bats and cats!




I attached the Headstone to the cat that was at the base.


The mini owl was attached to the little tombstone along with some more mini holly!


The Candy Corn Trees. 


They add a pop of colour and look awesome as a back layer.


I love all the glitter die cuts!


I wrapped the tree with some mini Halloween LED lights.  These are battery operated and omit no heat.  Now, if I could just keep the curious kitty's from chomping on them!

  3. What a fantastic Candy Corn Tree (though it also reminds me of a hat from Hogwarts too!) I adore the embellishments and love that it lights up. Thank you for joining us at A Vintage Journey xx

HEY USA... IT'S ALMOST YOUR BIRTHDAY!!!!

Celebrating the 4th of July with this patriotic card.  Since I have all these adorable paper dolls I dug through and found this pretty little girl holding the flag and wearing a pretty little sash.  My Mom's husband is American and this is his first July 4th since moving to Canada.  I wanted to whip up a card celebrating his homeland.

I finally get to use some of my seasonal paper with all these patriotic images.

My paper doll is coloured up with distress markers.

I added the dog... even he is inky with antique linen.

I inked the background and used the stars stencil... subtle and pretty.

Happy {almost} July of 4th

I hope all my American Friends a very special Happy Birthday.  Thanks for stopping by for this Canadian version on a Patriotic card. 

Make Over

Please be patient while my team and I (guys pictured below) rebuild my blog.

Due to unforeseen and sudden non communicated policy changes (by a certain online image hosting website) I have had to remove a lot of content I have built for my blog.  At some point my blog had a major system failure causing me to rebuild and start over.  Boo

Please note this change will not be "lipstick on a pig" and all future content will be AWESOME.  In the coming months I will be making adjustments to provide some of the best crafty eye candy out there.  YAY!


Thank you for your continued support, love and all around awesomeness!
And thanks a lot...
