Baby's Mobile

Finally posting the last of my Baby Shower gifts I made last week, a Nursery Mobile.  Lots of pictures in this post for you so I'll do less blabbering.
 

For the Animals I used Create a Critter cut at 3 1/2".  Then use the "Flip" button and cut again.  Mobiles do twist.

This little Monkey is the smallest cut at the 3 1/2".

I cut C for Charlotte using Sophisticated at 5 1/2" then added some Stickles in the accent.

Mooooo....

LOOOVE the Hippo!  I missed a close up of the Owl but you can see him too as you look at the mobile.  Poor Owl...

I even decorated the bottom of the lid.

I scallop cut the top with matching paper and added this pretty ribbon to trim it out.  The lid is a coffee tin lid.  It's easy to pop the holes in the lid for the ribbon.  The ribbon is from the Michaels $1 bin.

Cut the ribbon at the length you want and knot it on the top. 

I used the red sticky tape for the ribbon in between the animal layers.  Then I popped them with dimensionals. 

My little mass of critters!

Here is the card I posted to match.  See now the ribbon makes sense!  Click HERE to see the card with more photo's...or scroll down.

And the Nursery Wall Decor Project.  All are in matching paper.  Click HERE to see more photo's.

I did make one more card for my SIL for her baby shower gift.  I will post that shortly.  Then we can move on from babies to my daughters Sweet 16 projects I have been working on! 

Hope you enjoyed the mobile and I always love the comments!

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 …
