Halloween Altered Bird House

Halloween is always a fun time for decorating.  So I decided to take out a wooden birdhouse that I got at Michael's over a year ago. Just in case the bare wood was going to poke out I painted all the edges black.  After that I went to town making myself a template, for all the pieces.

To decorate my little birdhouse I cut out the fun papers from the Happy Haunting paper pack from My Mind's Eye. Then edged all the edges with black ink.
I created these fun doors and WoW they look amazingly real!  The twin skeletons were part of some of the card stock, so I cut them out and attached them so they look like they are opening the doors.
I made some bats and some adorable little spiders. (can spiders be adorable?)  I found a cool looking clock and printed it out, cut it out, distressed it then covered it with glossy accents.  Cool, huh?
I added a strip of acetate to one of the bats then attached it to the back side of the doors so it would look as if it is flying out of the house. I also used the acetate to create the windows.  Using some acetate on top of orange cardstock then used strips of black to make the panes.
  This side of the roof was craving a scary big momma.
This is the back of the house, don't cha love the window treatments?  I added some cobwebs and a black cat. When my house was complete I added some little ball feet and a few more spiders.
Pretty cool, huh?!

Keep Calm and Eat More Cupcakes

Hello again my friends.  Today I am sharing a card I made for the Terrific Trios challenge from  Diva Dare from Verve. The challenge was to use something on your project three times.  I think you can see what I used to enter the challenge, three cupcakes...yum!  This adorable stamp set is called Cupcakes.

As soon as I decided how I would do the challenge I knew which papers to use. 
I had purchased Olivia's Sweet Shop from The Paper Studio. Specifically the cupcake paper. Perfect, right?! I added some other papers from the collection and tied a piece of twine 3 times around the center images.


Kinda cute, huh?
Thanks for stopping by.  
I think I'll go eat a cupcake or three.  tee hee

Strawberry Basket Box Card

Hi there crafty folk!  Look it's me again! 
Today I am sharing this cute Strawberry Basket Box Card.  Isn't it adorable?! 

I used a file from SVG Cuts that you can find here.  At first, I was having some problems trying to get the files to ungroup, so my little Silhouette could cut, so I sent them an email. Bonus~ I didn't have to wait to long for the answer to my questions.  I give SVG Cuts a big thumbs up!  Thank you!


 I am just loving this little card!
Thanks for stopping by.
Enjoy your day.

Pineapple Drink anyone?

Ok, yes it's been awhile since my last post. Why you ask?  Instagram is so easy....argggg.  You just snap that picture and boom it's posted.  When it comes to my blog, I tend to feel that I need to yak a bit.  I suppose that I don't really need to since you are mainly here to see pictures of what I've been creating...so here ya go.

 Isn't it adorable!!??  I created a few of these babies to put on my Etsy shop which you can find HERE
 I added a bit of glitter to the hibiscus.
 The umbrella is distressed, popped up and I made some cute fringe to jazz it up a bit.
The orange slice even got some yummy glitter.
That's it for now..If you'd like to see some of my Instagram Photos, HERE's the link.

Card in a Box Valentine

Geesh, the time has flown so quick.  My last post was before Christmas!  Honestly, I have been creating almost everyday but have been to lazy to do any posting.  Today changes that with this gorgeous card!

 This is called a Card in a Box, folds up flat for mailing and can be totally, over the top, decorated.  I've put the directions at the bottom of the post so you can make your own :-)
 For this lovey, I used my trusty Cricut to cut all the hearts and the quote Love you.  The paper is from Prima's 6 x 6 Divine Collection.  Love it!

Thank you for taking time out of your day to visit.  If you make your own Card in a Box, I'd love for you to share with a link in the comments.
Enjoy your day!
  • Take an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of cardstock and score on the long side (11” side) at 2.5”, 5”, 7.5” and 10”.Cut off a 2 x 11 strip and set it aside. This will be used later.
  • Turn the now 6.5 x 11 panel a quarter turn (so that the unscored short side is at the top of your score board) and score at 2.5”.
  • Cut down to the 2.5” score line along each of the 4 perpendicular score lines. At the 10” score line cut in at a slight angle from the edge of the cardstock to create a tab.
  • Cut the 2 x 11 strip at 4.5” from the end with the 1” score line. Cut the strip in half long ways to create two 1 x 4.5 strips for the inside of your box.
  • Decorate each panel.
Assemble box and finish decorating accordingly.

Joy

Oh boy it's getting so close to Christmas, only 2 more days!  Yikes.  This year has flown by so quickly.
Today I'm sharing an altered frame that started out in the Target clearance section.  Three bucks! and worth every penny!
I started with a beautiful sheet of 12 x 12 from My Mind's Eye, All Is Bright, paper pad then went to town with things from my 'stash'.
  Isn't this the coolest embellishment ~ made with things collected over the years.  You know that stuff you need to purchase because you know you will use it someday.  Well looky what I made with it!
The joy letters were cut five times with my Cricut Jasmine cartridge.  I glued all the letters together to create them nice and thick. Then glitterized them using Martha Stewart fine glitter, then when that was dry, I used some Shaved Ice, from Stampendous, around the letters. I love this project!!  I hope you do to.
Thanks for stopping by,
Michelle
