Hi everyone! I’m back today sharing this little mini Halloween album I created for Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team!
I started by flattening and cutting a paper towel roll 5 1/2″ in length.
Next I cut one side open and inked the outside and inside of the “spine” with the Purple Chalk Ink from the ColorBox Paintbox Mercantile Chalk.
I adhered Kraft Halloween Cardstock to the front and inside covers of the mini album.
I placed the Scalloped Border Diecut onto the Base Tray (retired) but you can use a Movers and Shapers Shuttle to hold the diecut in place. I placed the closed mini album cover on top of the Scalloped Border Diecut and ran through the diecutting machine.
I gather some scraps of Halloween cardstock from my stash and cut and folded to fit album.
I cut from the following diecuts: Bookplate, Hinges and Label, Bookmark, Tags and Pocket, Credit Card Sleeve and Tags and Banners and Pennants Diecuts tags, pockets and banners to decorate the pages and the doily. I also added printables and bits of patterned cardstock to the pockets too.
The other side of the pages I added stickers and a bat diecut from my stash.
I cut tags from the Credit Card Sleeve and Tags along with some bits of patterned cardstock, punched a hole in the top of each and put all together with a jack-o-lantern brad and then paperclip to the top of one of the pages. I’m now ready to add mini photos and journaling of the grand babies.
Hi everyone! I am super excited to be back as a guest designer for the Robin’s Nest today! For the how to’s and more photos of my card you can find the blog post HERE.
Hi everyone! Has the weather started cooling off where you live? Here, we are in the lower 80’s but the nights are starting to fill more Fall like so it won’t be long before I’ll be wearing layers and complaining about the cold weather. LOL 🙂
Well, I am here today to share a Halloween project I created several months ago but wasn’t able to share until now.
Eileen Hull’s Inspiration Team had teamed up with Crescent this past Summer and we got to play with samples of Jute Matboard (you can find this in full sheets 32″x40″ in custom framing shops art stores). For my project I thought the black jute mat board would make a great Halloween project.
I cut the Medallions diecut out twice from patterned cardstock and put together according to the directions. I added thread, twine along with button, sequin and a Dew Drop to the medallion before adhering it to the corner of the pocket.
I can either add candy (which I have none on hand…lol) or use it to keep all of my Halloween goodies in one place. 🙂
If you have any questions about this project please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your day is awesome and enjoy creating!
Hi everyone! Today I am here to share my Inspiration Team project this month for Eileen Hull. This month’s theme is Halloween and Holidays and I decided to try and create a little witch from the Cookie Box diecut to hold candy in.
First I cut the cookie box from Mat Board and assembled according to directions. I used black mat board which is no longer available from Sizzix but you can paint or cover with cardstock.
For the hat I cut from Purple Crackle Glitter Cardstock a Cone diecut ( and assembled) a Scalloped Circle and a 1 1/2″x4″ piece of Halloween Stripe Glitter Cardstock (I used the lime green side of the cardstock) for the face.
Next I cut several 1/4″ strips of Black Bats Glitter Cardstock, crinkled and adhered to either side of the witch’s face.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your day is wonderful and enjoy creating!
Hi everyone! I am here to share my mini passport journal for this month’s s Hauntings and Holidays for Eileen Hull’s inspiration team project.
This is the first time using the Passport Book diecut and I can honestly say I LOVE IT!!! And I can see me using this one over and over again since I love creating junk journals so much.
I used a variety of leftover stickers, embellishments, printables from previous projects and swaps to create this little journal. The pumpkin diecut is from Tim Holtz and the Frame diecut is from Brenda Walton.
The covers and spine are cut from Mat Board and I stitched the pages in with black thread and then tied fiber, lace and ribbon on to the thread to add more color.
Also I included a little video to let you have a look inside.
If you have any questions about this project please let me know. Be sure to check out the rest of the teams projects because I am sure they will knock your socks off. Also each month there is an Art with Heart Challenge that you can link your own project up to the blog and there is a chance to win one of Eileen’s diecuts too. Now who doesn’t love winning??? 🙂
Hi everyone! It’s me, Tonya. It is hard to believe that fall and cooler weather is right around the corner but I am here to share some rolodex cards using some Halloween and Fall printables with Marie Antoinette thrown in for fun and some leftover cardstock from previous Mailbox Muse kits.
From the Trick or Treat Collection Paper Pack I choose the “purple witch” image which I set my printer on the #10 business envelope setting and printed onto a sheet of white cardstock. I trimmed to fit and then adhered to the can. I added Diamond Dew Drops to the bottom and lace to the top of the can.
Next I printed Trick or Treat Journaling Cards and fussy cut the witch out which I added a little chalk pastels to her and then lightly outlined her with a sharpie. I added Crystal Stickles to the moon. I set that aside to dry. Next I cut a piece of burlap ribbon to fit a mini October desk top calendar which I adhered to the top of the ribbon, added some bling to two of the edges and glued one corner to the can. The scrap leftover from fussy cutting the witch out I punch three leaves that I crumpled up , inked and adhered to the can along with the witch image. I finished off with sequin, dew drop and cording to make this spooky cute treat holder.
