Owlsome!

Isn’t he? The adorable Hoot Owl Lantern from Dreaming Tree’s newest bundle Give Thanks SVG Bundle:

In my version he is done up in AC Cardstock in Coffee, brown, gold and copper shimmery paper and papers from BoBunny’ s Collection “Autumn Song”. I embossed some of the papers with embossing folders from Sizzix, Cuttlebug and Darice and added some jewels from Doodlebug and ScrapBerry’s. A fun and very easy project to make and he just looks sooooo cute ❤

I had to make a white Snow Owl too:

For her I used white and black AC cardstock, white and brown shimmery paper and white glitter paper (AC) along with pearls and glitter dots. I also embossed all the feathers with embossing folders from Sizzix, Cuttlebug and Ultimate Crafts.

Now to decide which one to keep and which one to give away…..hmmmmmm…..tough choice!

Candy, candy, candy……

…..who doesn’t love candy? 😉 And for Halloween and Christmas there’s is going to be loads of it. So why not make something cute and practical for these occasions 🙂 Dreaming Tree thought of this with their new bundle Frank and Friends – the Halloween Treat Box:

I made mine with AC Cardstock in Black, Charcoal and Mustard along with POW Glitter paper in Grape and white Glitter Paper (AC) The cute but spooky cameo is from Tim Holtz. It’s so easy to cut out and assemble – so its a great project to get children involved in.

But back to Christmas….I altered the treat box to work for Christmas as well:

For this I used AC Cardstock in Vanilla, Black and Emerald along with patterned paper from Graphic 45’s “St. Nicholas” and glitter paper in Gold and White (AC) I found the snowflakes, trees and Santa in his sleigh among Dreaming Tree’s other bundles Christmas Bendi Cards (Believe and Silent Night Bendi cards) and It’s Cold Outside (Peppy Penguins Cascade Card) I also added some small gold dots from AC to the snowflakes and cut out some small “stamps” from the 8×8 paper pad from Graphic 45. The text reads “Merry Christmas” in Danish.

So now I’m all set when it comes to serving candy for both Halloween and Christmas 🙂 Please leave a small comment to tell me what you think of these projects 🙂

 

This is Halloween…..

 

 

…..in a shadow frame anyway 😉

I got this idea from SVGCuts spring kit Happy Easter where Mary had made some cute carrots in a shadow frame or 3D frame. I bought two frames back then from IKEA – Kasseby display box – and now that I’ve had the carrot one displayed in my dining room since Easter, I thought it was time to change it. So I came up with this idea instead:

All elements are from SVGCuts: The 3D letters (I downsized them to about 33%),  The Jack Sack from Frightful Friends Treat Sacks SVG Kit, The scary eyes, the pumpkin (I turned his mouth from happy to frightened), the triangular bat and the spider from Party on Elm Street SVG Kit, the frightened cat from Midnight Jamboree SVG Kit, the Skull from Toil and Trouble SVG Kit and the spider web from Fright Night SVG Kit (I cut it in half).

The paper that I used is mainly from Graphic 45 (“The Magic of Oz”, “Rare Oddities”, “An Erie Tale” and “Halloween in Wonderland”) The background paper is from Basic Grey’s “Eerie” collection. I also used black POW glitter paper and glow-in-the-dark sticker paper from Silhouette along with Black, Melon and Wine AC Cardstock. Finally I used some white vellum on the Jack Sacks and put some color-changing LED lights in them.

I love this new Halloween Shadow Frame decor as an addition to all my other Halloween 3D items and decorations and it was such fun to assemble. Here are two other pictures of the frame:
