Beatles Project

One of my daughters gifts I made for her 16th Birthday is this Beatles collage.  This is an easy project although time consuming.  Especially when you load so many photo's!  You'll need wood letters, modge podge, Google and a printer!

I grabbed the photo's off Google and my daughter's Pinterest board. The B is mostly Beatles Logo's.

Paul is her favorite Beatle so he gets is own letter E.

I made the A with as many Beatles Albums as I could fit.

The T is assorted Beatles altogether!

Just like the L!  I trimmed the tumbnail images then glued them onto the wood letters.

This E has my favorite song Blackbird (makes me think of her growing up) and her favorite song Strawberries Fields Forever.

Be sure your letters are up right before you glue.  My S is not. 

After the letters are loaded with images I trimmed with my Xacto Knife.  Then sand the edges, add some ink and seal it again!

This project is created with my daughters new room in mind.  A great piece we can hang on the wall or simply stand up. 

She got all things Beatles for her Birthday.  Including a vintage record player and some Beatles records.  She was so happy hearing her beloved Fab Four on vinyl she cried.  Which got all of us in tears.  She told me it was her best day ever...ahhhhh!

Thank you to everyone that left her a Birthday wish.  She enjoyed reading them.  I'm off for a couple weeks for a family vacation.  So my blog will be quiet. 

Cheers...

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 …
