Fall Colours

OK, I know, I know we are only half way through summer and already there are fall leaves on my blog!  I really couldn't help myself.  I mean... you know me!
This week Xyron and Newton's Nook are teaming up for some... AWESOMENESS!  Of course I had to go for these gorgeous leafy stamps.  Can you imagine these embossed or in an art journal!  So many creative ways to make stuff.


I gathered some goodies including my Tag and Tie to make a Kraft Tag for the sentiment. A little bit of stamping and inking goes a long way.  


I stamped the wee pumpkin from the Falling for You set (linked below) and coloured with Stabilo Woody 3 in 1 pencils.  These are great for watercoloring too.  Yep, it happens from time to time... I fussy cut the pumpkins out.


I stamped the Beautiful Leaves stamp (linked below) with a blend of Oxide Inks.  Stamping again on inky scrap paper with large maple leaf... yep, more fussy cutting.  Oi...


More stamping on the background and then run through the Creative Station.  I stamped the mini leaves to create a border and popped up the fancy maple leave.  There's little pumpkins are run through the Xyron Sticker Maker and ready to attack to the small tag.


Check out the close up details...  like this awesome fussy cut maple leaf.



I love pumpkins!



Loving the ripped tag.


I do love some fall colours!


Be sure to stop by and see all the awesomeness the team is creating all week and follow along HERE.

BTW... I love this card layout so much I cased it from my blog bestie A Blog called Wanda!  It's OK, I told her I was totally going to make one!

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…
