Beware!!!

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!!! ūüôā 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. ūüôā

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

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. ūüėČ

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!!! 

Shabby Chic/Vintage Toilet Paper Roll Mini

Hi everyone! I would like to share a mini I created for a swap over at My Scrap Room. We had to use five flattened toilet paper rolls for the inside, a chipboard cover and back, three types of embellishments on each page, tags in each of the “pockets” and last but not least it had to be decorated in a shabby chic/vintage type of theme.

I used a¬†variety of scrapbook paper, My Mind’s Eye: Bramble Rose, Lost and Found Two, Prima, cardstock, embellishments Robin’s Nest Dew Drops, ribbon, lace, buttons, Tim Holtz Swivel Clasp and¬†Tsunami Rose and Ephemera’s Garden¬†printables from their shops and blog.¬†

The mini is so FAT I had to use a swivel hook to keep the mini closed.

  

The tags for¬†the toilet paper roll “pockets”. I left them blank so my swap partner, Mesha, can either journal, add photos or decorate the way she wants to. ūüôā

Some close ups of some of the pages with pull out tags.

I hope this will inspire you to create something fun for yourself or as a gift for someone special. 
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy creating!!!
