Halloween Bingo Card

Hi everyone! I'm excited to be back as a guest designer over at the Crafty Card Gallery. At the bottom of my post I have a list of supplies I used to create this fun Halloween Bingo card.  I cut various lengths of cardstock and adhered to the 5"x6" base of the card. Stamp the Halloween Bingo image on lime green cardstock and glue on top of base.

Cut out two rosettes, spider and a banner. Adhere both rosettes together and glue seal punch on top of rosette. Adhere banner to card and then glue rosette on top of banner. Next glue spider on top of rosette and adhere wigglie eyes to spider.

I used a 2 inch Head Pin to create these fun "hat pins". First add a sequin then a Connie Crystal beads. Add a drop of glue and seam binding around the pin. Also adhere a Dew Drop to the top of each pin and then add to the card.

I hope this little card has inspired you to create one for yourself.

Hi everyone! I'm back to share a project I created using the awesome Halloween (Transylvania) Collection that is 20% off over at the Robin's Nest this month. This collection of Halloween cardstock, which is double sided, and embellishments is so fun to use!

My sister came across some old AOL CD mailers when she was cleaning. She asked me if I wanted them? Well, does a cat have a climbing gear??? Of course I wanted them!!! :-) I was sure I could come up with some type of crafty project and this is what I came up with. This Halloween project I created can be used as a photo/calendar/note holder or it can be tweaked and a mini album could be added.

First I when around the edges of the mailer with Gesso and let dry.

Next paint around the edges with black acrylic paint. Once dry Mod Podge over what has been painted with the black paint.

Cut a piece of Pumpkin Head Cardstock to fit both sides of the inside of the holder and glue down.

Cut two pieces of  Purple Glitter Crackle Cardstock to fit the front and back of the outside of the holder. First emboss both pieces of cardstock with the D'vine Swirls folder and lightly ink both pieces with Stem Green Chalk ink. Adhere to holder.
Fussie cut the gate out from the Haunted House Cardstock and adhere three of the sides to the front to make a pocket. The other piece glue completely down.

Use Stickles to add a little bit of glitter to the eyes of the pumpkins on the gate. Next I fussie cut the owl and pumpkin image out from the Halloween Greetings digis. Cut and separate the pumpkin and owl image. The pumpkin will be used on the front of the holder and the owl will be used on the inside cover. 

Use the Tag, Scallop w/Eyelet diecut and cut a tag from the Spiderweb Glitter Cardstock. I fussie cut one of the witches  and the boo  out. Cut out a banner from Halloween Glitter Stripe Cardstock and adhered to tag. Next emboss one of the Bats with the Flourish embossing folders, lightly ink with the Stem Green Chalk ink and adhere to the top of the tag.

Now emboss the outer edge of the Chipboard Pumpkin with the Flourish embossing folder and adhere the owl on top of the pumpkin. Also emboss one of the bat chipboard pieces with the Flourish folder and adhere to the moon. Used the Scallop Square Duo to cut a square and adhere two of the sides to make a pocket.

I used My Crafty Life Printable Creative Planner and printed the little bird notes which I added a little witches hat to their heads.

Glimmer mist a paper doilie in Peach Delight, emboss chipboard pumpkin just like the other pumpkin but I used Stem Green chalk ink on the stem of pumpkin. Adhere down the outer side and bottom of the pumpkin. You can either add a small calendar page or a photo of a special spook. :-)

The "beware" sign I printed from the computer and inked the front and edges with Stem Green chalk ink.

Spooky cute!!!

Which Witch?

Hi everyone! I back to share a really quick project I created using #5 shipping tags, some scraps of cardstock from the Halloween (Transylvania) collection over at the Robin's Nest. The vintage women faces are from Cemerony  and the "Witches" image are from Cameo Shoppe etsy shops.

To make these little witches I fussie cut the head out and I cut a hat out of a scrap of black spiderweb cardstock. Added a little bit of Stickles to the collar and around the Dew Drops. Then I added scraps of cardstock, frightful sentiment and adhered everything to the tag, inked edges and ribbon.

This tag is really simple. Cut out the witches image, ink edges, add scraps of cardstock, print 31, ribbon, buttons and a Dew Drop and adhere all together.

This little tag is pretty much the same as the other frightful witch other than adding a sequin to the hat and the button.

Backs of the tags.

Spooky cute!!!

It Feels Like Fall

Hi everyone!!! As you can tell I've been on a crafting kick as of late. My husband and I had went to Starbucks this past Saturday and low and behold they had the Sweet Spicy Pumpkin coffee sleeves out and, of course, I had to pick up enough to make a Fall mini album. ;-)

For this mini I wanted to keep it pretty simple. I used a free "Feels Like Fall" digi from Ephemera's Vintage Garden. I had signed up for a news letter from Debbie-Anne and once a week she sends out a free digi but do check out her etsy shop because she has some awesome journal kits, add-ons, ATCS, etc. The only other thing I used was bits and pieces of ribbon, seam binding, ric rac, diecuts, buttons and a sticker I received in swaps over the years. I also used my Bind-It-All to bind the mini together. 

I hope you have enjoyed looking at what I created. Thanks for stopping by, hope your Monday is wonderful and enjoy creating!!!

Bats and Cats Treat Bags

Hi everyone! I'm back to share two more treat/goodies sack I created. I used some of the Halloween (Transylvania) Cardstock collection that is 20% off over at the Robin's Nest to make these super adorable sacks.

I glimmered misted both of the doilies and while I let them dry I cut out the rosette and adhered that together. Then all I had to do was add a bit of Purple Glitter Crackle Cardstock, trim, bling, buttons and stickers. Easy peasy!!! :-)

This little sack I finally used a die I have had forever from Cuttlebug that has a bunch of mini Halloween characters such as skull, pumpkins, ghost, spider, bat, etc. The googlie eyes are a perfect addiction to the little bats. The other Cuttlebug die has a Happy Halloween Embossing Folder that goes with it. I inked around the edges and inked a little of the "Happy Halloween" and then used stickles around the outer edge of the die. I embossed just the pumpkin in Orange Glitter Crackle Cardstock which I fussie cut out and added stickles around the edges. The last thing I added was sequins, bling and dew drops.

Both treat/goodie sacks were very easy and really didn't take a lot of time to make.

Supplies Used:

Chevron Bags
Want 2 Scrap Say it With Bling
3mm Googlie Eyes
Martha Stewart's Stem Green Chalk Ink
Stickles: Crystal and Patina
Tattered Angels Peach Delight Glimmer Mist
Ric Rac
Cuttlebug Halloween Die and Embossing Folder
Sizzix Tim Holtz Mini Paper Rosettes
