Halloween cont'd

Happy Halloween!
 This is the card I made for my Mother for her Birthday.....yep she is an official WITCH...born on Halloween!
 I used my Gypsy & Accent Essentials cartridge to enter this frame on the top half of my card.
 I cut out the smaller part of the frame on the top part of the card then used the larger part of the frame on pattern paper to make the inside portion of the card.  I took the cutout piece....stamped it with an awesome acrylic stamp set from Hot off the Press and used some foam tape to give it a lift.
Stickles and my copic markers were used for some decorative touches and finished.
 These are the finished lawn decorations we made the night before Halloween and then put up as the trick a treaters came!
 A little Glow in the Dark spray paint helped them stay spooky all night!
 This was the only pumpkin carving we were able to fit in this year......but the kids didn't seem to mind!
Now we have re-usable decorations that we worked on together!
Hope your night was Fun!!!

Happy Halloween!!!!

We are hard at work making our own Halloween Lawn Ghosts
 Thought it would be fun to make something custom for our new the boys liked all the cutting!!
 Will this scare Trick a Treaters?????
I guess we went for cute ghosts!!!!
Could have used Cricut shapes, but free-handing them was fun.
Need to finish painting them and then I will post pictures tomorrow.

This was a fun way to use up some scrap wood we had laying around the garage.....pumpkin head here turned out to be my favorite.

Hope you are enjoying your Spooky Halloween Prep.

Happy Fall Y'all!

Happy Fall Y'all....wherever you are I hope you are enjoying some beautiful FALL COLOR!
Here is my attempt to enjoy some of the wonderful leaf colors I've noticed around my home.
I created this project for my California Swarm friends and wanted to share some tips on making one for yourself.

I went to Walmart and found these fantastic felt leaf place-mats in a couple different colors (they also have pumpkin shapes) and couldn't resist turning it into something else.

I used my Cricut (of course) to cut out some coordinating fabric letters that I ironed on to a scrap piece of burlap that I hot glued to the center of the leaf.  I stapled a burlap piece of ribbon to the top to make the hanger portion and then had fun decorating!
So easy and simple...what was even more fun is seeing the personal touches and changes some of the ladies made with their leaves.  I had some silk fall leaves, and acorn shaped bells, and a little bling that added some special touches.  And if your wondering how I got the distressed look just use your heat gone in some select spots for an extra second or two and you will see just how much fun it is to add some fall crinkle to your project!
Hope you try one for yourself!
