Halloween 2012

My Werewolf

 WE LOVE PUMPKIN CARVING! but it's a bit smelly and a lot messy....haha

Karlee's Frankenweenie

I can't wait for tomorrow night....


A Christmas Class

This is the Christmas card that I recently taught at the Ipswich 4 Craft Weekend.
It uses the Framelits and the Ornament Keepsakes Bundle. This bundle is fast becoming a' Favourite ' of mine....but aren't they all....hahaha

Colours are Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla.  The card started with a 12" x 6" piece of vanilla and I folded the card at 41/4" and 10". You can't see but I have used the Festival Paper Piercing Pack to pierce all the way around the edge of the gumball green framelit on the front. There is also glitter over the ornament and rhinestones on the label.

I use my ruler and SU! markers to hand draw the lines on the ornaments and draw the little bows on them.

Hope this has inspired you to start making Christmas cards this year......I am way behind....better keep going.....


Halloween Treats

Just finished my Halloween Treats for the neighbourhood kids for tomorrow night.......
Stampin'Up! made it easy this year. I used the Ghoulish Googlies Designer Kit. Complete with little glassine bags , tags and googly eyes. I used some little brown paper bags to make some larger goodie bags.
I used the Howlstooth & Scaringbone Designer Series Paper.

 Glassine Bags

 Brown paper ones

As a Special Treat!!!!
I made 25 SU! little mini milk cartons for the children in Allanna's Year 3 class. We filled them with lollies and chocolates. The little face on the front is not Stampin'Up! Hope they get a big surprise!!! 

Happy Trick or Treating tomorrow night everyone....I hope your treats are HUGE and your tricks little ones....hahaha

Meet Jack!

Meet Jack.....His is my new addition to my Stamping 'Bunker'. My friend Nadine borrowed my Yo-Yo maker a few weeks ago, and then at Stamp Club presented me with Jack......
Isn't he FANTASTIC!!! I am sooooo spoilt by my gorgeous friends.

Nadine said she had to make him for me because I am as crazy about Halloween as she is....YEAY!!!

Jack proudly sits on my shelf under my ribbons and protects my Bunker from any evil spirits, especially the ones for BAD Craft mojo...hahaha
