12 Tags of Christmas; #10


Tag 10 was a lot of fun!  Although I was a little impatient and took pictures before my ornaments could dry!  I really like this tag...so much I made 2!  But if you want to see my second tag you'll have to check back on December 16-18 for Hop I am in.  It should be AMAZING!


Had to sneak my Jingle in!  If you have been following my version of the 12 Tags of Christmas then you know each tag has at least 1 jingle on it!  I cut a stem from my mini $1 store tree then layered with tinsel, ribbon and the red jingle.  All glued with hot glue.

For my version of BELIEVE I stamped and punched cork, then distressed with a little vintage photo.  I added some gold glitter glue to make it look like icicles.  My banner is hand cut TH music paper, then to get that tattered edges I punched the tips with my Martha Stewart drippy goo punch.  I could have borrowed the banner from my GF but it's the weekend...family time!

For the facets I did see the ones Tim uses.  However I picked up the pack of 48 of thin facets.  I figured I could get a lot more use out of 48 than 12 of them. 


Here's a sneak peak of my Tag 10 variation.  Check back Friday Dec 16th for the whole tag.



 

I really love this tag. Making these little ornaments was so much fun although a little finicky! If you come back on Dec 16th for the Hop I'm in you'll see how I made a tag super personal. I can see you wanting to make some 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 …
