Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween!

Harry decided to be Satellite Man:

Yes, he had 'his surgery' last week. Doesn't he look cute in his 'lampshade?'

As I told you yesterday, I couldn't make just one witch's shoe. I made this shoe, along with a witch's hat, for my friend Lucy's daughter. You can find the witch's hat tutorial on Tami's blog.

Here's the back of the shoe:

I made a coffin and test tube treat holder for Lucy's son. You can find the coffin template on the left sidebar of Jan's blog and the test tube tutorial on Madeline's blog. I used MS test tubes, which are longer than the ones Madeline used, so I adjusted my measurements to 12" rather than 10 1/2".

Here's the inside of the coffin:

Thanks for stopping by. If you celebrate Halloween, I wish you a hauntingly good time.

Witch Shoe is Which?

Happy Saturday!

Last year Raissa posted a witch's shoe in her Halloween Newsletter. Once I saw her cute shoe I just had to make one. I already had my Halloween projects finished, so I put it on my list for this year. But, I couldn't make just one!

I also made matching post-it note holders. I followed Angie's tutorial.

Here they are all packaged up with goodies for my two nieces and my brother's girlfriend.

So, witch shoe is which? The purple is for Amanda, orange for Samantha, and green for Merissa.

You can find the witch's shoe template here.

Treat Holder Card

Happy Monday,

Hope you had a great weekend. I made this treat holder card for my niece's boyfriend. You can get the template/directions at Pockets of Inspiration.

The stamped images are from the SU Fang-tastic set that is currently in the Holiday Mini. The bat paper is from the retired SU Ghostly Greetings pack.
Note: I altered the template to accomodate the eyeball candies. The treat box template is 3/4" high, but I made this 1" high. And, yes, that is a spot of ink on the card--that's what happens when you stamp at 1:00 AM!
Happy crafting!

Open, If You Dare...

Happy Wednesday!

Here is the coffin treat box I made for my brother, Kevin, for Halloween:

The template is from Martha Stewart and you can find it here. I got the idea to put the 'drippy goo' along the top of the coffin from my blogging buddy, Curt. If you haven't visited him before, run there now and browse around--he is uber talented!

I used Bazzill black card stock for the coffin base, Basic Grey for the top layer, and skeleton paper (from ACMoore) for the lining. The drippy goo and bats are MS punches. The 'Open, if you dare...' is computer generated.
Well, after three very disappointing games, the Yankees are back!

Harry at Six Months & a Christmas Project

Happy Saturday,

Harry was six months old on Thursday so I thought I would share a couple of new pictures:

Even though I am still working on Halloween projects, I wanted to post this Christmas project as it is so cute:

I used Basic Black, Real Red, and Shimmery White card stock. Sorry I can't post any measurements as this was a project from INKspirations4U Christmas Edition. You may visit Madeline's blog for information on INKspirations4U.
On another note, did you see the Yankee game last night? I was disgusted and turned it off when they were down 5-0. I put the game back on during the 8th inning and watched them rally back to take game 1! Go Yankees!!!
Thanks for stopping by.

One Lovely Blog Award

Happy Saturday!

My friend Diana presented me with this One Lovely Blog Award. Thank you Diana!

A few weeks ago during a 'pizza night' before our 'crop night,' Diana also gave me this decorated can. She used Tea Party DSP which is one of my favorites. There were white chocolate truffles inside. They sure were yummy!

And, I gave Diana this box with Pumpkin Spice votives from Yankee Candle.
I'm sorry I don't have the measurements for the box. I somehow must have thrown my notes away. It was quite easy to create though. I measured the votives and went from there.

Hope you have a 'crafty' weekend!
