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!

Grinch

I am so excited to share this Tutorial with you!  This is a tutorial on how to "draw" an image to scale!  How to take a small image and make it life size using a grid pattern.  I'm sure if you are on Pinterest like I am you've seen The Grinch stealing Christmas lights.  I looked for a tutorial on how to make my own but I couldn't find one.  Not to say someone hasn't created a tutorial.  So, I decided to create my own.  With the help of my husband who created the Grid pattern for me to make these characters come to life.  Much like he did for my daughter's Union Jack Headboard.  Keep in mind, this is NOT A COPY of The Grinch.  Before you consider purchasing the class...you will have to DRAW him yourself.  In this class you'll be shown how to grid a print out and grid your plywood so you can "DRAW BY NUMBER" if you will.  Even if you can't draw... you can draw the lines in each grid connecting them to the next grid.  I can draw but not s…

New Release- Stamp and Photo Storage

All month the Inspiration Team for Eileen Hull is thrilled to be showing off the her newest Book Club Collection.  Here's my little glimpse at the Stamp and Photo Storagedie.  There is nothing this decent size die can't do... or hold!  In this case Letter's to Santa.  I even combined the Trinket Box & Frame to frame out Santa.


I stamped the Woodland Winter Santa designed by yours truly onto watercolor paper and used my Scribble sticks to add a little color.
I cut a piece of clear packaging and ran it through my little Xyron Disposable Sticker Makerto create a cover for my Santa.  Perfection!

I colored up the Floral Arch and Words arch to attach to the bottom and top and attached.  I used some Distress Woodgrain Cardstock to wrap my Stamp and Photo Storage. I cut Super StockCardstock to fit inside.  Inking and stamping like crazy all tied off with some postal twine.  The Correspondence Stamp Set is perfect.


I mounted the Trinket Box & Frame to the Stamp and Storage…

Pumpkin Parts Thanksgiving w/ Xyron

While my Thanksgiving may be over it is coming soon south of the border.

Xyronis getting ready for holiday season and what better way then with the Pumpkin Parts die cut.  This easy card is layered with paper and ink to create a festive pumpkin card.  The team will be sharing their fall inspired projects all week so be sure to pop by for lots of inspiration.



The Create a Sticker is great for all the smaller pieces to layer and quickly put together.  For a quick background stamp the craft sheet with Distress Oxides, spray and drag.
I cut Thanksgiving from the Sentiment Words Thinlit and attached with the Sticker Maker.Fall Foliage has this little hay die cut that I added to the bottom of the pumpkin attached the Xyron Mega Runner.
I clipped a couple of the Twisted pieces for a little green for the top of the pumpkin.





Don't miss any of the inspiration with the rest of the Xyron Team.
