Halloween Mini Album

Happy Halloween!!!!

Hi guys, hope your all enjoying Halloween today, I had so much fun decorating and as always...looking forward to seeing all of the kids in the neighborhood with their fun costumes.

For todays DT project for Cardz TV Gallery, I thought it would be nice to have a little mini album for all of the cute pictures that we all take of our kids, in my case nieces and nephews all dressed up for Halloween. I have posted a link below to a YouTube video I made showing the project in detail, which I thought it would be much easier than posting pictures. I do plan on doing some future YouTube videos, although I must say I'm still not all that comfortable in front of the camera, which I'm hoping will change as time goes on.

Anyways, I had a lot of fun putting this together, I used Cardz Tv Stamps sets "Trick or Treat", "Spooky Sayings" and "More Spooky Sayings" and the Echo Park Papers "Happy Halloween", which I had from last year. The SVG files that I used are from SVG Cuts, Svg Cutting Files, the Silhouette Store - #66197 and the Cricut Cartridge "Happy Hauntings". Please do not forget to stop by Cardz TV Gallery and check out what else our other designers have created!

Hope you enjoy...

Pumpkin Picking Box Card

Happy Fall ya'll, here is my 2nd Cardz TV Gallery DT project I made for today, it's my first box card, yay... finally!!! I made this pumpkin box card and used it as an invitation for pumpkin picking.

I live in PA, but I usually go to Alstede Farms in NJ, love going on the hay ride, as always my kids always have to pick the biggest pumpkins, then complain that they are heavy... no kidding, lol! They have a huge corn maze, which you can be easily get lost in for hours and lets not forget their warm fresh baked pies, yummy!!! If you haven't been there and your close by, it's definitely a must visit, especially around this time of year.

Onto the project...I got the cut from SVG Cuts...Autumn Box Cards "Pumpkin Patch" and I used the "Extras" for the labels...1 @ 3 inches and 2 @ 2 inches. The Cardz TV stamp sets I used are "Thankful for You",  "Ticket Talk 2" and "Good Times". The papers are from Colorbok Textured Cardstock "Natural Wonder" and Paper Studio "Natural Botanical". I added orange brads, 3 dimensional stickers "Harvest" and an arrow stamp. TH ink pads for shading...Antique Linen, Forest Moss, Peeled Paint, Gathered Twigs and Rusty Hinge, plus Archival inks - Coffee and Jet Black.

Please do not forget to stop by Cardz TV Gallery and Cardz TV for more inspiration from our DT members.

Hope you enjoy...

"Spellbound" Halloween Tag

Hi everyone, here we are with another project I have created for the Cardz TV Gallery, I just love being part of this DT, there is such wonderful inspiration on the gallery, it's a must see! 

I love Graphic 45 papers, I used these papers from the "An Eerie Tale" paper pack , such fun papers to play with. I used a #10 tag and Cardz TV stamp sets "Frankly Frightful" and "Spooky Sayings". I also added a pocket for 2 additional tags I made for a photo and/or some journaling, I used spellbinders die cut #S5-167 for the tab on the smaller tags.

I used my mini tag punch for the "Trick" and "Treat" sayings and added them to the smaller tags. I added some black brads, green rhinestones, green seam binding, green twine and foam tape. I also used black Archival Ink and TH- Black Soot for the shading.

Hope you enjoy...

Purse Gift Card Holder

Howdy all, I have a project here today that I made for a gift card. I bought this purse from the Silhouette store #60407, it's so darn cute I had to buy another (similar) "purse gift-card holder/envelope set" that I will be using for another project I have in mind, I'll be posting that one soon. This purse took no time at all to put together, seriously...it took minutes.

I used Core`dinations green cardstock and Graphic 45 "Time to Celebrate" papers. I added some foam tape to the front and back layers, Prima flowers, button, twine and green ribbon to complete the look. The sentiment I used is from the Cardz TV "Just Saying" stamp set. 

Hope you enjoy...

Halloween Zombie Card

Hi there, here we are with another Halloween card! I've decided to start using things that I had purchased, which that have been sitting for quite some time without being used. Oh boy, only god knows how much I have accumulated through the years, so why not start to have some fun with it. It's just so hard not to buy the cutest next thing, right?

Well, for todays card I went into my Sizzex bin and pulled out a card die - #659237, I haven't really created anything other than the typical card base, so it was nice to do something a little different.

I bought the Boy Zombie in the Silhouette store - #47397 and used Cardz TV stamps "Going in Circles" and "Frankly Frightful". I added black twine for the spider on the orange ric-rac ribbon. I used a bat punch, 1/2" hole punch, orange brads, glue dots, Recollections 6x6 papers "Midnight Magic" and K&Company "Spooky" papers. I shaded the edges with TH Black Soot and used Archival black ink for the sentiment. I had such a blast making this and it felt so good to finally put the die to use! :)

Please enjoy...

"Second Chances" Swap for Tanya

Howdy everyone, for todays project I'll be stepping away from paper crafting and jumping into altering a project. The theme of the swap is called second chances, basically giving something new life. I have what I call my dollar bin or the forgotten-lost cause bin, for better words. This particular project I used a wooden paddle from that box of mishaps and turned it into a little piece of 3d art. My partner Tanya wanted something that wasn't holiday related, her favorite color is purple and she has a bit of grunge to her style of crafting, so voila this is what I came up!

Hoping she likes it!




Happy Crafting!!!

"Too Cute To Spook" Treat Box

Hi everyone, here is my first DT Gallery Challenge. As you all know, I am now a designer for Mary's new blog...Cardz TV Gallery! Every day one of the designers will be posting a project for the exception of Sundays, I'm so excited to be part of the wonderful team. You can not go wrong with any of Mary's stamp sets, they are just PERFECT for any project!!!

I absolutely love how all the leaves have turned into the beautiful yellows , reds  and oranges, but with Halloween is still around the corner, I decided to make this adorable little treat box. The ghost is just way too cute, so I had to make it. For todays project I used Cardz TV stamp set "More Spooky Sayings", of course, the sentiment is just right for this little creation.

I bought the file in the Silhouette store #48728 and I added the spooky fence, that I bought from the store as well - #47758 and I have a little tiny bat punch, which was used for the bats around the box. I tied a bow with some green and black/polka dot sheer ribbons, I used black tissue paper inside the box for the candy, inked all of the edges... TH - Iced Spruce for the ghost, TH - Dusty Concord for the Banner and TH - Black Soot for the box.

Hope you enjoy...
