A Little Pumpkin Boo

I am going a little Old School on this one with the Mini Scary Jack O Lantern face.  I wanted to use a couple dies I own and haven't used yet... the Jack face and Petal Drop.  True...it happens!
I was at the $1 Store the other day and found these Styrofoam pumpkins and decided I could make something with that.  Then there was one of those wee top hats...I could make something with that.

I thought wrapping the pumpkin using my scrap Graphic 45 Rare Oddities paper would be easy.  Perhaps not..it's thick paper.


I added this skull charm from Emerald Creek Craft to the small Bow Tied die.  A perfect spot on the top hat.


I snapped my skeleton into place and have him sitting terrified!  I've shipped these little guys to a couple of my blogger buddies across the world!  


I just got my Ghost die...BOO!  I added clear rock candy glitter and edged with the new carved pumpkin.  


I mounted the pumpkin on Eileen Hull Box Cookie  and stamped with the new Stampers Anonymous Ledgerscript.  Then I edged with carved pumpkin distress ink.  Added the BOO and some spiders.


There was a small piece of this black tulle that came with the top hat.  Instead of chucking it I used it behind the ghosts.


This is the perfect addition to my Pumpkin Theme!


Check out my haunt.  See if you can find the projects I have created!  Yes, I made the tombstones too!





Happy Haunting!

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…

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…
