BOO!!! PDE Linky Party

Although it's our weekly Friday DT reveal at PDE Linky Party, it's still the day before Halloween. The theme is still "Anything Goes", but I've just gotta share one last Halloween project.

I really love the file Mr. Pumpkin from Kadoodle Bug Designs. So I made one more Halloween tag to share with you.

The tag is actually a die cut file from the Silhouette store. I did make it much bigger so I could fit Mr. Pumpkin on it easily.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy Halloween

Hello there!! Today is my day to post for Scrapping Bug Designs. 

I picked up this really inexpensive wooden sign from Hobby Lobby that I knew would be perfect the large title from SBD.

Next I chose patterned paper "Arsenic and Lace" by Echo Park. I also knew that I wanted the sign to be "framed" without trying to add too many layers to it. I did not want to take away from the details of the actual Halloween title. 

So I downloaded the iron frame from the Silhouette Store and used that as my layer for the project.

Although the ribbon hides the spider web detail and most of the tree, I did feel it was important to have with my project. It felt naked without it.

P.S. The sign does not actually sit in my yard. I just took photos of it outside as it is still paper. It will make a cute wall decor in my new house.

Thanks for stopping by today!

All the pieces are inked for dimension. The bubbles have Stickles on them.

The ribbon is kept in place by hot glue.

Beware!!! PDE Linky Party

Hello there! Today I'm here to show you my project for the PDE Linky Party's challenge: Halloween colors.

There were just so many possibilities with this one for me. Since I'm on a box card and 3-D "kick", I just stuck with that.

I reached for a SVGCuts file this time. This card was so easy to put together.

Try it!!!

Thanks so much

Hello there! My favorite time of year to actually scrap is Fall and Halloween. I love to stock up on my favorite files from svg sites including Fall, Halloween, Christmas and Winter. I have a blast creating and crafting (and yes, shopping) this time of year.

I can hardly wait to show you in the coming days what I've been working on!!

Without further ado, this little bear and pumpkin are from Scrapping Bug Designs.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Monster Mash

Hello there! Today is special for me. It's finally October!!!! It celebrates my son's birthday, my anniversary, my favorite season and colors. All of this combined with a whole nonsense of allergies. It's a love/hate relationship.

Anyway, I made this card for my son's 9th birthday. Mind you, he doesn't actually get to keep it in his possession. More like . . . "see it" . . . "now give it back" - we're going to put it up high to keep it safe.  (feel free to shake your head at me now)

I was inspired by the design of this card on Pinterest

The bat and cupcake are from KaDoodle Bug Designs. I did not cut out the skull and crossbones that came with the file. I tend to shy away from such tiny cuts. I will use actual embellishments instead. Brads or small buttons instead of die cut buttons, little bows instead of die cut bows, etc etc.

I want to also give a very special thank you to my crafty friend Barbara with PaperPiecingMemoriesbyBabs. She knows why. I am such a HUGE fan of her work.

Thanks for stopping by today!!

The typical "Happy Birthday" did not "feel" right for this card.
So I went with Monster Mash. I thought it was fitting for a 9 year old.
