Scary Skull

 

Good Sunday Morning – thanks for joining me on the blog today 🙂

This week SVG Attic releashed a new kit called JGW Witches Gather. In this kit I found this totally awesome realistic shaped Skull. I just needed that for my Halloween decorations…..It’s so cool – don’t you think?

It’s made from AC Cardstock in Vanilla. I made some holes in his eyes, nose and ears so light can shine through and covered these with some printed vellum.

Just look how amazing he looks in the dark:

My light is a little too bright but I really love this look.

Thanks for stopping by today – remember I love to read all your comments ❤

Haunted Abode

Good Evening…..

Just a quick post to show you my latest project – the awesome Midnight Manor from Dreaming Tree…..Oh Ron you simply outdid yourself this time ❤

DSC_0003

This cool Haunted House is made entirely from AC Cardstock in Black, Stone, Charcoal, Olive and Eggplant. I wanted mine to look really scary so I didn’t make it as colorful as the original.

The iron fences I wanted to look rusty, so I applied some cobber wax. All edges (I think 😉 ) are inked to give it a more worn down and creepy look. I also applied some Enamel Accent in Black and Orange for details on the house and on the Tombstones. Finally I used different Halloween trinkets from Tim Holtz for decoration.

Here’s some pictures of the details:

I really had fun with this one – eventhough there are a LOT of pieces to cut out and keep track of – but Leo helps you with all that in the tutorial video found here.

Here’s what it looks like in the dark:

The Candy Gang…..

Hello again 🙂

I just can’t believe all the amazing Halloween projects out there, just waiting to be made. I am really kept busy at the moment 🙂

This time I want to show you my edition of SVG Cuts Candy Gang SVG Kit

DSC_0002

Just like the cute Halloween Lanterns I showed yesterday, these are made of AC Cardstock and Doodlebug Design Paper “Boos & Brews” and “BooVille”. The handles are pipe cleaners and I added a twinkle in their eyes with a white Sharpie.

They are soooo easy to make and would be so awesome for all the cute Trick or Treaters out there. I think I know a couple who will love theses 😉

Here’s some close-ups of each bag:

Thanks for vistiting me again. Please leave me a small comment. I just can’t promise I’m done with the Halloween stuff, because there is still a whole lot out there to be made, but I am starting to think about Christmas….Must. Concentrate. About. Christm…..Ooooooh look Halloween 😀

Too Cute To Spook

Hello and happy Sunday 🙂

Today I want to show you the cute Halloween Lanterns I made from the SDS Glowing Halloween kit

SDS Glowing Halloween

I wanted them to be cute and not too scary as I am giving them to a special Family School that I attend with my youngest son who has ADHD. This school only has about 8 families at a time – mostly Mother and child and is a place where children who has difficulties being in their own school/class can come and get help with these difficulties.

So I made the lanterns with AC Cardstock in Black, Cricket, Blossom, White and Squash along with patterned paper from Doodlebug’s “Boos and Brews” and “BooVille” – these papers are just perfect for this project…..don’t you think?

As I know that the lights in  these lanterns will be turned on and off every day and this might cause the bottom contraption to tear,  I adjusted the bottom slightly to make an easier access for the candle.

Here’s how and what I did on my Silhouette Cameo:

1. I placed the shape (for keeping the candle in place) on top of the bottom shape and chose “release compound path.”

2. Then I removed the square and left the circle in the bottom shape.

3. I then chose “release compound path” on the bottom shape.

IMG_8452

4. I removed the square from the bottom shape and chose “make compound path” on the remaining shapes.

IMG_8455

5. This is what it should look like.

6. I finally cut out the piece along with 4-5 shapes for the candle-holding.

IMG_8457

This way the candle rests on the table and is easily accessible to turn on and off. Should you want to hang the lantern instead, do not use this method as nothing is holding the candle.

I really can’t wait to see the kids reaction to these cute colorful lanterns. Halloween is still a pretty new thing here in Denmark but its becoming more and more normal year after year. Still there is a HUGE lack of Halloween decor and I’ve taken it on as my personal mission to make and bring in more of it everywhere I go 😀

Meet my Mom…..

Today I want to show you the little cutesy 3D spider I made from the JGW 3D Witch kit.

DSC_0002

I made him of Black AC Cardstock and he’s sooo easy to assemble. Otherwise looky here: Needles ‘n’ Knowledge – spider assembly. The eyes are from Doodlebug Design BooVille Shape Sprinkles.

He is just perfect and matches the rest of my HUGE Halloween decor collection 😀

But wait…..what????? EEK!!!! Here’s Mommy…..

DSC_0005

You can make the spider almost as big as you want but I just enlarged her so her legs fitted the 12×12 mat and the body likewise.

They do make a cute pair – don’t they?

And here’s Daddy 😀

DSC_0005

I guess he’s lucky to still be alive as female spiders usually eat their mate after mating. He does look a bit terrified so maybe the danger isn’t over yet 😀

Here’s a pic of the “happy” family ❤

Thanks for joining me today – hope you’re not too afraid of my spiders 😀

Deadly Treats

Who doesn’t love all the yummy Halloween candy? I for one am a big fan of the spooky sweets and so are my kids. Mommy’s still hoping that the youngest will choose to have his Birthday Party as a Halloween Party but we will have to see. They grow up so fast and soon they race past Mommy who’s still a little child when it comes to Halloween. Can you tell???? 😀

In this post I will show you the last project I made from Bird’s Creak ‘n’ Shriek SVG Collection – the Coffin Treat Box:

DSC_0028

This box I made from AC Cardstock in Black along with patterned paper from Carta Bella’s “Trick or Treat”. I inked all the edges with white chalk ink from Prima and added two small gems on the “RIP” sign. Then I filled it with lots of yummy treats – all ready for the big day – Oct. 31st. 😀

Thanks for stopping by and please leave a small comment on how your liking the projects ❤

SHRIEK!!!!!

Looking to scare som guests at your next Halloween party or do you just (like me) enjoy some spooky horrifying decorations?

Look no further – The Coffin Luminary is here fresh from Bird’s Creak ‘n’ Shriek SVG Collection

DSC_0019

I made this from AC Cardstock in Black and White along with patterned paper from Carta Bella “Trick or Treat.” I inked all the edges with white chalk ink from Prima, added two gems to the “RIP” sign and put in some color-changing LED lights.

This rather large decoration looks a bit spooky in daylight but watch what happens when nighttime comes…..

SHRIEK!!!!!

Can you tell I’m loving this? 😀

Spooky Light Box

This weekend the magnificent Bird released a fantastic new Halloween Collection – The Creak ‘n’ Shriek SVG Collection from where you’ll find several fun and spooky projects for your Halloween party or decorations.

I threw myself at the Spooky Light Box

DSC_0038

I wanted it to match some of my other Halloween decorations, so I made it in Black, Ash, Stone and Squash AC Cardstock – still pretty spooky in daylight but life really comes into it at night with at light behind….

DSC_0002

I really love these Light Boxes. They are so easy to make and assemble and they are so amazing to look at both during the day but especially at night

Thanks for yet another great design Bird!

Now onto more fun from this great collection………………

Spell Bound

My all time favorite Holiday is creeping in slowly and I’m getting less and less time to make spooky decor…..Oh the horror!!!

Luckily there is still time and today I want to show you the latest creepy project: The Book of Spells from the JGW Steampunk Hex Kit from SVG Attic:

DSC_0005

For this awesome “book” I used AC Cardstock in Black, Plum, Olive and Sand along with patterned paper from Basic Grey – Eerie.

I distressed the edges of the book along with the front panel. I also cut four of each corner, glued them together and applied gold foil.

I used the skulls from the Mourner’s hat from the JGW Raven Quest Kit also from SVG Attic and added some small black gems as eyes.

DSC_0011

I made a small hole and placed a brad to function as a lock on the closure tab. Finally I added a small metal key in a chain to the upper right corner decoration and added some black crushed glas glitter to the pentagram.

DSC_0013

This book is originally supposed to function as a gift card holder, but I figured I use it as a hidden candy stasher 😀

DSC_0007

That way I get to get my share of the goodies before they’re all gone 😉

Thanks for visiting today and please remember to leave me a small comment on your way out ❤

Once upon a time…..

…..in a land far far away, lived a small fairy in a beautiful Pumpkin Cottage. It was made of all the best paper material you can find and the fairy was a happy little fairy.

The Cottage was designed by another beautiful and talented fairy called Mary. She had made lots of gorgeous paper houses and other stuff and the small fairy was thrilled to be living in a genuine SVGCuts Pumpkin Cottage.

DSC_0014

The small fairy was so happy and excited with all the amazing details that was put into the cottage.

and she hoped to live there forever and ever……but…..

An Evil Witch moved to the far away land and bought herself one of Mary’s cottages. Only this one wasn’t made of dreams and happiness but of nightmares and bad luck.

DSC_0005

The Evil Witch loved her sinister cottage and invited lots of her sisters in to cackle and brewing toxic potions.

They would use hours looking at the horrible details of the cottage.

But one day, the Evil Witch invited the Small Fairy over for coffee. They became the best of friends and lived happily ever after.

The End.
