Embossing Cookies


Embossed Cookies...for real!!!!

Now I realize to some of you use your embossing folders to emboss your shaped cookies may be sooo last year.  But I JUST saw this and was like...O.M.G.EEEEE!  Now why didn't I think of that.  I feel awful, I can't link the blog I found it on.  I was scrolling Pinterest when I saw the picture and I guess I didn't pin it.  Really sorry, I think it's SOOO important to link the blogs we find stuff on. 

My apologizes on the photo's, it's overcast here this morning.  And despite the whole rear of my house being glass the pictures still turned out dark:(

I'm still Holiday Baking (7 batches of Biscotti yesterday) and these are my Moms Shortbread.  Sorry, not allowed to share the recipe.  However, I changed it up and used this new little cutter I picked up.  This recipe yielded 70 cookies.  Make sure you wash your folder in hot water and soap first!


LOL...This is NOT one of those fancy Gourmet Blogs.  It's a craft blog so my counter is a direct reflection of my craft desk...messy but produces greatness!  *SNICKER*


I positioned the pattern on the folder to center on the cookie then pressed firmly. 


This is  Stampin Up Folder, Vintage...something?


Here are all 70 of my cookies...with my mess!  And a bag of caramels for the Chocolate Turtle Cookies I made next. 


Thanks for stopping by.  Have you thought of embossing your cookies and done it?  If you have let me know.  I feel like I'm the last to know!

Let me know if you're going to try this too?

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 …
