Better Homes for Hobgoblins…..

 

….yeah! I just don’t don’t think any fairies live in these houses I made. You know that I’m a Halloween-addict and therefore I just had to transform the cute Fairyville SVG Bundle from Dreaming Tree into something dark and haunted (Muah-ha-ha-ha……)

First off is the Dragonfly Fairy House aka The Horrible Hobgoblin HouseDSC_0015

For this house I used AC Cardstock in Black, Olive, Charcoal and Leaf along with Graphic 45 patterned paper “Halloween in Wonderland” and yellow vellum. I distressed and inked all the edges and embellished with different Halloween charms from my stash. I did alter the house design a bit, as I removed some of the cut outs to make it look a bit less cutecy 😉

Next is the Butterfly Fairy House aka The Wild Witchgoblin’s Crib:

For this house I also used AC Cardstock in Black, Olive, Charcoal and Leaf along with Graphic 45’s patterned paper “An Erie Tale”. The edges are also distressed and inked and the house is embellished with more of my evil charms. Love that Pentagram ❤

Last but not least is the Honey Bee Fairy House aka The Hateful Hobgoblin Harry’s Habitation:

This house is also made from AC Cardstock in Black, Olive, Charcoal and Leaf along with Graphic 45’s patterned paper “Rare Oddities” and a few trinkets from my stash.

Here are some more pictures of the houses’ details and when they are lit up:

I really had fun making these houses and they make a great addition to my ever-growing, humongous Halloween Decor Collection.

Batty for Halloween…..

….yup you know it’s me 😀 It is my favorite Holiday of the year – bigger than Christmas. So I have to start early if I have to make it in time with all the new decorations to make. And today I also celebrate being a new Team Member on the SVG Attic Inspirations Team ❤

This time I want to show you the two adorable Bats on Stands designed by Jodi G. Warner for SVG Attic (get them here) as part of an amazing Halloween collection JGW Night Enchantments:

For this projects I used lots of Black AC Cardstock and a little Wine and Leaf. I also used Graphic 45’s “An Erie Tale” papers and black glitter paper (for the swirly parts of the bats) I inked all the edges of the black cardstock with a grey inkpad and used a dark brown inkpad for the patterned paper. I decided to make the bats a tad more scary by embellishing with some Halloween charms and adornments.

I really loved how easy these were to assemble. I originally intended to make only one of the bats but loved it so much, I had to make the other one too 😀

Here are some more pictures of the project:

I am really excited to be on the SVG Attic Team and look forward to making lots fun stuff in the future since they have all these amazing files to play with ❤

Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to write me a little something 😉

Halloween Countdown….

….well if we can have Christmas in July, we can certainly also have Halloween in July!

For the past week (or so) I’ve been playing with the brilliant Halloween 3D Pumpkin Stack Countdown from JGW – that is when I haven’t been chasing Pokémons or battling in Gym Raids with the kiddos and Hubby. 😀 This was a ‘UGE project but so much fun – I don’t recommend it to beginners but if you’re somewhat experienced in paper crafting, I say you must make it! (Get it here or here )

For the pumpkin I used AC Cardstock in Squash ( 😀 ), Chestnut, Oregano, Boysenberry and Black. I also used some wood patterned AC Cardstock in Chestnut along with patterned paper from Basic Grey – Eerie Collection (an oldie but goodie)

I inked al edges with a dark brown inkpad from Prima and used some small metal handles instead of eyelets. Finally I dotted the numbers and the Medallion with Nuvo Glitter Drops – Midnight Sky and tied a ribbon in the Medallion and around the stem. I found some spooky embellishment to hang from the top.

Here are some more pic’s of the Pumpkin:

 

Thanks for stopping by and remember to let me know if you like my project ❤

Let it snow…..

…..Oh can’t wait for the snow (if we get some) – although I would like a week or two with sun and warmth cause Denmark has hardly had any this summer 😦

Anyways – what I want to show you is my version of JGW’s Large Layered Snowflake On Stand (get it here or here ):

DSC_0005

I used White AC Cardstock along with DCWV Mercury Glass Paper and White Glitter paper and then I tied a string of lights around the whole thing – looks awesome lit – don’t you think?

Now I’m off to do what I do best – Halloween 😀

Thanks for stopping by and remember I love comments ❤

 

Jul i Juli (Christmas in July)

….joining the trend 😀

Since it’s hot and sticky outside with no sun, my conscience allows me to make beautiful things in my craft room instead of being outside 😉 And what better way to cool down than making a beautiful 3D snowflake like JGW’s Snowflake 3D Stick Ornament (buy here or here )

DSC_0005

This gorgeous and rather large ornament is made up of several layers and it’s so brilliant constructed (like all Jodi’s 3D designs 🙂 ) I just love those sticks!!!

The original design is made one-sided but I want to hang mine in a window so I made it double-sided. I used White AC Cardstock for the snowflakes and BoBunny’s Winter Wishes as patterned paper. I also used some white glitter paper for the smallest snowflake and found some acrylic snowflakes to tie in the middle of the ornament.

Now I’m onto another JGW design…..but that’s another story 😉

Thanks for stopping by and please remember to leave me a small comment on how good I look or the like 😀

Shining Topiary

….another wacky idea of mine came true 😀 It was the first thing I thought of when I saw Jodi G. Warner’s Flower Ball Topiary Tree (found here or as design #200021+#200024 in the Silhouette Design Store) I need to put some lights into this! But how?

DSC_0009

First of I found the instructions here and here. This is not a project if you’re a newbie in paper crafting! It’s a bit tricky getting everything to fit together and it’s VERY important that you follow the instructions (oops 😉 )

I used various papers from Graphic 45 for the Flower Ball and also for the pot and AC Cardstock in Kraft, Chestnut and Cranberry. I filled the pot with small bags of glas pearls and moss and then to the lights…..

Boy did they give me trouble 😀 I used a small battery operated string of LED lights (you can get them anywhere) with 20 lights and put a light into all the flowers (during construction of the ball) except the bottom one. Then I used the rest of the string to wrap around the stem and hid the battery case in the pot underneath the moss. I chose to leave the lights in the flowers and let the light shine through the small hole in the embellish-flower (did widen the hole in it a bit)

After a bit of cursing and yelling I got it done 😀 My poor family….I tell you!!!! LOL But I’m so happy with the result and the lights shine exactly how I want them to – YAY!!!

Thanks for stopping by 🙂 I really love to share my projects with you and I love all the comments you write me ❤ Thank you.

Colorful-lei…….

 

….sorry! Couldn’t come up with a better name 🙂

As I was playing with SVGCuts Tropical Party Kit (see previous post), I remembered that I hadn’t made Bird’s gorgeous Lei from the Club Tropicana Collection. So I got out some bright colored cardstock from AC and started cutting out all the flowers. I didn’t make the spacers cause I borrowed the idea from SVGCuts to use straws as spacers and in practically no time I had my fantastic Lei:

All ready for summer parties or pride 😉

The only thing I regret is that it doesn’t match the rest of the projects I made from Bird’s beautiful collection last year:
