12 Tags of 2013- October

12 Tags of 2013... it's OCTOBER and I made 2!!! Because that's how much I love this time of year and technique.
 
I always love anything crafty this time of year.  Bet you didn't know that about me.  For this tag I had the stamps...and...that was about it.  However, I am collecting more inky things ( like this post) so I decided to get ALL the Fall paints.  (It's not a problem if I use them...right)  I LOVE this technique and since I LOVE Fall/Halloween I went for them all.  Oh and the Distress Glitter...and the Distress Inks.
 
Here's my version of the October Tag.  I don't have the frame.  But that's OK, I cut the frame on grungepaper using my Cricut's Sophisticated cartridge.
 
I really love the script in the back.  The smoky technique is a great Halloween trick...so spooky!
Well, I went for the scary kitty!  Truth be told, I had the little owl and moon that were cut and given to me.  And...I'm pretty sure I cleaned them up into the recycle bin:/
 
A little pop of bling for the bottom.  I really wanted some hardware.  So I added the Skull n' Crossbones.
***BONUS TAG***
 
I had all this ink left on my craft sheet so I decided to swipe another tag...and then 1 more. I might as well make 2 tags then and that allowed me to ink and glitter my BIG Crescent Moon.
 
Two Tags are always better than 1!
I love making this month's tag!  And there was IS glitter EVERYWHERE!

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…

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…

Paper Smooches Passport

It's no secret I love journaling of any kind including the Passport die.  Creating little books everywhere I go and with everything I have.

Xyron and Paper Smooches are teaming up this week and a ton of creativity.  Creating pages is essential to journaling and the Notebook Paper Twostamp is perfect for these inserts.  Check it out...


Roll the cover pieces of the Passport Die through the Creative Station, switching out the 5" refill for the 9" refill.  Work one side at a time to quickly adhere Wild Whispers paper.

Apply inside pattern paper, flip and repeat for the exterior paper.

To make things easier I used my new Tonic Studios Stamp Platform.  With all these pages I needed precision stamping for the notebook lines and teeny letters to create "notes".

I don't want plain pages... that's boring.  I inked and stamped the all the letters with antique linen randomly on each page.  Add a little paper detail.  But just a little ;)

Lets stencil because we can…
