I love crows for decorating this time of year. And they are everywhere! This is a $1 Store project featuring my crow and a Christmas Box. I picked up the crow for $2 and the box was $1.25 and I grabbed the wee witches hat at Michaels with my 50% coupon bring it to about $1.50. This whole project ended up costing about $5! Not to bad.
I popped the cone portion of the witches hat off so I could wrap it in matching paper. Then I glued it back into place.
The 31 is from the TH Gothic Boo die. I attached the tinsel and used my heat gun to age the tinsel.
I used up some old orange ribbon and attached this skull from a $1 bracelet. TH Skull n' Cross is some perfect hardware I glued in place by folding the brim.
Another skull and some glittery Halloween accents glued on top.
I made a banner with grungepaper and HAPPY HALLOWEEN stamped. I used some walnut stain ink to distress the edges. The attach with hot glue. A little glitter pumpkin and Spanish moss complete the creepy scene.
The Iron Fence boarder die is wonderfully gothic. The I attached the Word Band. A little more tinsel adds some bling.
I love the Apothecary Skull! He's so creepy. Then I used the eye ball from the Remnant Rubs- Elements.
Another great addition to my Halloween Collection!
It is official... I am addicted to Journaling. This is an inspiration post... why? I may have become lost in my creativity... it happens.
Scroll through the the photos for ideas. I have been inspired by my fellow journalers too.
I kept the cover of Eileen Hull's new Journalsimple with a flipped cabinet card and some crackle paste stenciling.
We are always looking for last minute card ideas. Here is a great quick card to whip up in no time. A little paper, embossing powder and of course the 3" disposable sticker maker. How time flies, can you believe this is my last post for 2017 forXyron.
With my dies I cut a bunch of paper including super stock for the ornaments. Create a resist with clear embossing powder for inking.
Here's my favourite part... running my dies through the Xyron 3" Disposable Sticker Maker. I just feed it like it's hungry.
Run a line of adhesive on the back of the paper for the twine to attach too and again on the chip quotes. I stamped the sentiment from my stamp set Woodland Winter.
Check out this simple quick card.
Look how pretty my stamp looks here.

Well what a fun year it has been. Xyron took me on with no experience and never even owning one. Thank you to my awesome team and a awesome product to design with.
The team is designing with their favourite Xyron product and I picked the Sticker Maker. This handy little machine is perfect for my love of sentiments and letters. A perfect pairing with my Sizzix Dies.
To create the backgrounds I need a thick cardstock that can take this amount of paint... Super Stock! I created a colourful base for these wee Alphanumeric Thin letters.
I lined the little letters up and ran them through my Vagabond.
Each little letters slides into the sticker maker easily. I add them all one after another pull. So quick and easy!
I created the background for the card much the same way as the letters. Creating a paper ribbon while I was at it.
With the ribbon and bow created I popped the ribbon part through the sticker maker.
Peel and stick. It's hard to pick one Xyron product. I often …
