Mad Hatter’s Mourner’s Hat with a Twist?

Hello – I’m back again this Sunday with more Halloween spookiness. This time from SVG Attic.

I really can’t decided whether it’s a Mad Hatter’s Hat or a Mourner’s Hat. It’s definitely a hat!

I wanted to make the Mourner’s Hat from the JGW Raven Quest kit this Halloween but as I progressed, the project changed due to my hyperactive brain. “I wonder if this can be done…..?” “Hmmmm can I do this…..?”

The answer: Yes! I did it. Presenting the Halloween Mad Hatter’s Mourner’s Hat with a twist:DSC_0006

The hat is made from AC Cardstock in Black and Charcoal and inked with Ingvild Bolme Chalk Ink in White.

I made the panels and the little shelves myself with the Silhouette Software. The Panels are embossed with a Bark patterned embossing folder from Darice.

I made small holes in the back of each shelf for the light to shine through.

I added a scratch mark in one of the panels and backed it with vellum – also for light to shine through. I found it in the Silhouette Design Store Design ID #118964 by Sophie Gallo.

Then I got busy decorating the hat with all sorts of nick nack Halloween style I could find in my stash.

The flowers are from Prima, several of the decor pieces are from Ideaology  and the gem swirls are from BoBunny.

I wrapped “Mummy Cloth” around the hat as a band and also around the bow.

One of the most awesome feature, is the Zombie Hand that holds the lantern. It’s also from Ideaology and I love it to bits….It’s so cool.

It’s pretty creepy in the dark:

Poison and Potion

Happy Sunday and YES! It’s October….the month of Halloween – my favorite time of year.

I just love to decorate my house for Halloween. The kids are getting older and they don’t care as much for Halloween as the Evil Queen of a Mother, but I don’t care. I decorate for me and whom else that like it.

I also enjoy making the decor myself and find it especially fun to Halloweenify ordinary files into something creepy.

That’s what I did with the following bottles: The 3D Love Potion Bottle from the JGW Cupids Aim kit, the Myrrh Bottle from the JGW Gifts for the King kit and the Love Potion Bottle:

For these spooky potion and poison bottles, I used AC Cardstock in Black, Plum, White and Apricot.

All edges are inked with Distress Ink and White Chalk ink from Ingvild Bolme.

I made some panels for the large bottle embossed it with a Swirly Embossing folder from Sizzix.

I also made these bottles into luminaries. I cut some different shapes (from the Witches High Top Boot from the JGW Bewitched Botique kit, Scratch Marks Design ID #118964 in the Silhouette Design Store along with the Skull Design ID #20905) Then I glued vellum behind the cutouts and finally I decorated with gems and various trinkets from my stash.

I found some cool strings of LED lights designed for bottles and used these in the large and small bottle. For the medium bottle I dropped in a color shifting LED light.

Now they are part of my spooky Halloween decorations in my living room and the truth be told….I think the kids like them.

Here a fun little video I made:

 

Thanks for joining me today – I’ll be back soon with more spooky Halloween projects.

Tiny Easter Eggs

It’s is closing in on us – need to get those projects done because before you know it, Easter has come and gone.

So my main focus these days is Easter since I don’t have that much made the last couple of years. And there are so many cute projects out there, so you can easily fill your living room, kitchen and bedrooms with lots of cute chickens, Easter Bunnies etc.

Being a slightly active crafter ( 😉 ) I don’t have a lot of space for storage, so I decided to try and downsize some Easter decor and I chose to start with the darling Egg Chocolate Box from Bird’s Eggstravagance SVG Collection

DSC_0028

This tiny cutie is downsized by 50% and I used AC Cardstock in White along with pearl paper in Purple, Gold, Mint and Lilac for it. Then I embellished with different gems and dots from my stash.

To make the Egg a bit more considerable, I made the Cupcake Stand from Bird’s Celebrate With Cupcakes Collection for it to sit on. The stand is also downsized by 50 %.

I love that it fits into one of my Glass Domes – tiny and pretty. It’s about 4.8″ tall.

But wait – there is more……

You can’t have one without the other, so I made the Egg Luminary also from the Eggstravagance SVG Collection downsized by 50% (now 4.88″ tall)

DSC_0039

I made it from AC Cardstock in Vanilla and Pearl paper in gold. Then I embellished with lots of cream colored pearls from my stash. It’s perfect sized – a LED tea light candle fit perfectly inside.

And just look how gorgeous it is in the dark with a color shifting LED light inside

Now don’t be fooled by the tiny-ness of these projects. They take the same time to make and assemble as the original sizes and this is definitely something you would want to consider making unless you’re a bit masochistic as I am, cause the bits are very small and it’s somewhat tricky to assemble. I think I just enjoy torturing myself with these tiny projects 😀

Thanks for joining me today. I really hope you enjoyed my tiny eggs and I hope you are as busy Easter crafting as I am. Don’t forget to leave me a comment on your way out ❤

 

The Post-Christmas-blues…..

….yup! There is such a thing. I suffer from it BIG time! That creative void or vaccum where you don’t know what to make or create. Seems like you been totally busy and now….it’s quiet. Totally blank.

I sat down last night – tired from being up way too late New Years Eve and really really lazy. I started going through different projects I could create (I do that sometimes – kinda planning ahead) and there it was!

The cute 3D Snow Globe Box from the JGW Snow Flurries kit (also found here in the Silhouette Design Store) and I decided to make my own version of it 😉

DSC_0002

All I really did was make an octagon-shaped hole in the middle and layer it with some vellum so light can shine through. Then I too one of the snow flakes from the Snow Flake Hanging Card from the SDS Ornament kit (or design #22717 in the Silhouette Design Store) and cut out 4 of them and then glued them side to side to make a 3D snow flake to hang in the middle of the Snow Globe.

Finally I put in a color shifting LED light into the box and voila!

DSC_0008

I do think it’s fun when imagination runs wild and you can come up with new ways to make things 🙂

Thanks for joining me today – I hope you came into 2018 with happiness and a big bang 😀 and look forward to showing you lots of new 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………………
