Creative Circle October Blog Hop


This month, Liz has created a Halloween Haunted House file!  It’s a cute decoration that has plenty of room for at least 3 cards.

Creative Circle October 2015 full

I made it up with the Haunt Ya Later stamp set and Happy Haunting Designer Series paper.  Here’s the house, with the sweet vampire at the door.  The ghosts are cut from the DSP.

My cards are all shakers.  After doing this card, I couldn’t resist doing more!  The shaker piece is cut using the Deco Label Collection and filled with sequins, stars and more of that glitter thread stuff (technical term!)

I cut a spider web doily into quarters (just like the Haunted House) and used the pieces inside of the shakers.

I have several favorite costumes – my children have always loved to dress up.  But the most unique costume was the year my youngest went as a pin cushion.  I’ll have to find a picture 🙂

Now hop on over to see the other creations on this blog hop!  You don’t want to miss it!

Framed Dasher

In the Decor Elements brochure is a level 2 Dasher – and he’s beautiful.  I made this frame by putting Dasher on the outside of the glass and lining the inside with the Holiday DSP from the mini catalog.  The frame came with a mat (which I simply covered) and an insert for a picture (which I lined with DSP.)  To finish it off, I cut a section from a tiny wreath and used Pop Up Glue Dots to adhere it to the glass.  Note – hot glue did not work! 

It’s hard to tell from just a picture, but he has a lovely 3-D look.  Isn’t he pretty?  Enjoy!  Hugs, Fran

Holiday Projects

It’s Holiday crazy around here!  I keep bouncing from one thing to another – so I thought I’d better share before it gets way to confusing! Let’s start with Halloween.  These are the Martha Stewart test tubes.  The pattern for the holder can be found here. (Lisa Sommervilles blog!)  I loved the labels that came with the test tubes so I included them in the design.  The set is Batty for You and All Holidays and the DSP is retired – but you can used the darling new Halloween DSP!  (I have to use this up before I open a new pack!)

Continuing on with Halloween – here’s the Decor Elements piece that convention goers could order.  I chose a round jar – just to make it as hard as possible for me!

But Christmas is around the corner too!  So I covered some 2 x 2 wooden blocks with the Holiday DSP and added some various chipboard letters and some candle cups to make a display for my mantle.

Does this give you Holiday fever?  Enjoy!  Hugs, Fran

More Decore

Sue Duffy sent me a pic of her Decor Element!  Doesn’t it look great?!  She used the definition the way it’s “suppose” to look.  And she added rub ons to spice it up a bit – very clever!  Thanks for sharing, Sue!

Decor Elements

The Decor Elements are here! They are wonderful and so easy to use.  I ordered the “create” definition with a spot in mind – but changed my mind when it came (a woman’s prerogative!) So instead of putting it up in “definition” shape, I cut it apart and used it as one long saying above my bulletin board in my classroom. 

I measured down from the ceiling and marked a line with painters tape.  Then I cut apart the definition and followed the directions for applying it to my wall.  From start to finish, including measuring and taping, it took 20 minutes!  Pretty cool!  Now to order more!!  Enjoy!  Hugs, Fran
