Who isn't Crazy for these Crazy Dogs and matching Crazy Dogs Framelit dies. 
 
I must admit this is my first time using both.  I saw this sentiment somewhere while stalking people and crafty things.  I believe it was one of those shared photo's on Facebook.  I read it and thought immediately of these silly pups.


I pulled out my dies, stamps and stencil.  A little stamping, inking and cutting.


I am not one that likes to fussy cut... AT ALL!  So stamping and using the framelits is so nice and easy.  I used my mini distress inks for inking these puppy's!


I have don't have the Crazy Things  Framelits but I do have the  Crazy Things stamp set.  Yep, fussy cutting for me.  The sentiment is stamped with my teeny stamps and I cut the Stitched Rectangles for the back.


This dogs face is priceless!


Especially with all these crazy faces.


The bouquet of flowers from the Crazy Things stamp set is tucked in his mouth.  I attached a Small Tattered Florals flower for some depth.


HAHA... this sentiment kills me.


The "card" is 5 1/2x7 1/2 so since I don't have a folding card the Stitched Rectangles are attached to the back.



The stitches are an awesome detail.  I attached a Wildflowers 2 cut just for fun,  They are sitting on my desk... doing nothing but being pretty.



#iloveyou... why not.


A bit of a different card for my sweetheart.


I wanted to make something fun and try out my stamps and dies.  A lot of watercoloring which I love to do and there you have it.  A Valentine card.

Have a sweet day!

  5. This is adorable! I don't have the dogs yet, but you have sold me! Well, maybe not...I have the birds and cats and I've only used a cat a couple times...probably not a good investment. But I love yours! The background is the cat's meow! Hugs!

  7. Nicole...this card is darling! You're right...the faces on those dogs are priceless! I love your design here and how you've used the stenciled hearts in the background but also left some white space! Very effective and really sets off those adorable dogs! I also love the way you've mounted this card. Really really pretty! Thanks for sharing your creation with all of us at Creative Carte Blanche.

Halloween Decor- Pennies a project

SIX PROJECTS ON A DIME!

Are you looking for some Halloween Decor ideas?  I have a few for you.  These are projects I have been working on for the past couple of weeks.  BANNERS
I made Boo and Beware for my 2 corner windows.  These are cut from Birthday Bash, using Recollections Halloween paper and Stampin Up Halloween Paper.
I made this Tim Holtz Banner, "Trick or Treat".  Hangs over my spooky dining room.  Black sheets are there for the holidays.
Cut from Birthday Bash and the frames/ font are a Sophisticated cut.  I added beads from Walmart and skulls are a $1 store necklace cut up.
This BIG Banner is "Happy Halloween"
The charms are Walmart and the tulle is from an old Halloween costume.  This glitter spiders are a $1 store find.

Happy Halloween!
Candles
Cheap-o-la...You can make this on a budget...promise!  I picked these candelabras up from Michaels for $12 at 50% off.  I bought them on a day they there was an additional 25% off so in the end they were less than…

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 …
