Feed Me, Seymour,

Feed me all night long
That’s right, boy!
You can do it!
Feed me, Seymour
Feed me all night long
‘Cause if you feed me, Seymour
I can grow up big and strong!

Remember these lyrics? If you do, you’ve definitely seen the Musical “Little Shop of Horrors” starring Rick Moranis, Steve Martin and Bill Murray. By far one of my favorite Musicals 😀

So you can imagine when I saw the awesome creation of Audrey II by Jan Hunter – I just had to scrap lift it and Sandy of Simply Crafty Svgs made it very easy.

Presenting: Audrey II (Venus Flytrap SVG File):

I had so much fun making the murderous little plant. I used AC Cardstock and patterned paper from DCWV Stacks Curiosities and Ghost Stories.

The leaves and the tongue are embossed with Embossing folder from Crafters Companion and Sizzix and all edges plus teeth and embossing are inked with Distress Ink in matching colors.

The plant sign is from American Crafts and I used vinyl for the text….it even has the bloody fingerprint from Seymour 😮

Finally I filled in some Spanish Moss in the pot and ….TA DAAAA…..Two-y was born (again)

This might be my only Halloween decor this year…let’s see if I have time to make some more and find the space for it.

I’ve seen several Audrey’s made lately – all look fantastic ❤

Thanks for joining me today….I think I’ll take some off from my chores and watch “Little Shop of Horrors” for the 50th time 😀

Explosion of Impressions

Last month my Mom turned 70 and as you can guess I wanted to make something special for her.

What do you make for a 70-year-old that doesn’t take up space (as she recently moved to a small apartment) but is still something that she can remember getting on this special day?

I decided on the Hexagon Explosion Box from Simply Crafty SVGs:

First of I want to say, that if I have to go into details, this post is going to be waaaay to long, so I put a video at the end of the post so you can see all the goodies.

The box is made from AC Cardstock in Vanilla, Cranberry, Leaf, Kraft and Wave and decorated with patterned paper from Graphic 45’s “Times Nouveau” Collection.

I decorated the lid with several Prima flowers, Vinyl, enamel dots and different trinkets from my stash.

Taking the lid of reveals the Explosion of Impressions:

All the layers are decorated inside and outside and the follow pictures show a bit of it:

I made some of the panels into small pockets for the tags to fit in and wrote some details about my Mom on them. I also used the Silhouette Sketch pens to draw parts of lacing patterns on the tags as it’s on of her favorite crafts.

On the pockets I also drew crafting motifs all found in the Silhouette Design Store.

On the largest layer, I added some quotes and saying that I found in the Silhouette Design Store – all about crafting. Well the box theme is crafting actually 😀

On the smallest layer I added small labels on which I wrote a greeting from me, my Sister and the rest of our families.

I put the present inside the box in the middle and decorated the lid with knitting needles and a piece of knit also from the Silhouette Design Store. I also decorated with more vinyl lacing pattern and some gems.
