Bloom's and Mini Mason

Are you ready for Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge Home Grown Challenge?  What's your idea of Home Grown...is it flowers, fruits, veggies or baking?  There's so much you can create with this weeks challenge.

I love these mini mason jars.  I can only tell you how hard it was not to crackle the glass.  With combining the Jumbo Tattered Pinecone and Tattetred Pinecone it starts to look like they are fresh plucked from the garden.


I wanted to create a market feel with these by adding the mini ticket.  I inked it with some walnut stain distress and the wood grain stencil.  The .5 cent stamp is a random one lying in the basket...alone.


I cut this garden green with grungepaper so it's leafy looking.  Then I coated it with twisted citron distress paint.  Sanding it makes it look grungy.


This wee star was begging to pop with some poppy field alcohol ink.  


These mini mason jars beg for the Jumbo Pinecone roses.


I cut the jumbo pinecone roses with some Kraft Core paper allowing me to distress and sand.



The swivel clasps hardware is a great way to get some heavy metal in with all these delicate flowers.


Get ready to share your idea of Home Grown with  Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge and link it up.  We want to see!  There's always a chance to win $50 Simon Says Stamps gift with a random winner.

I always love sharing and when you stop in to share your thoughts.  If you can pick a flower off the screen you can have it.

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…

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 …
