Halloween 2010

Ok, yes I know it is July but I'm trying to get my scrapbooking caught up!!  I have a box full of pictures that I'm pecking away at slowly.  So for right now there will be layouts done that don't coincide with the time of year it is, but it will give you ideas for your pages this year lol!!
Ok the base of this page is Bazzill cardstock and the color is Cheddar.  The two pieces of printed paper both came from The Paper Studio's All Season paper pack.  The piece of solid orange paper behind the "spooky" embellishment was from The Paper Company's Jewel Tone Fashion Colors value pack.  The Monster and the "Trick or Treat" sign were cut from the "Mini Monsters" cartridge, I don't remember the sizes there were cut at though.  Both were cut with paper from The Paper Company's Fashion Colors value packs, Jewel Tone, Rainy Day, and Bright were the packs used, I believe lol.
And lastly the embellishments, "Spooky", "Happy Halloween" and the little bat, were from K&Company Halloween pack.

This picture isn't that great because it was taken with my iPhone and the page was in the page protector.  I think I will retake pictures of the other layouts I have recently completed and will post with my camera so the quality is better.  Also I will take them out of the page protectors!!

Happy Crafting!!!!

Dragon Cricut Cut

This is just a dragon cut that my son David asked me to "make" for him.  It is from the "Designer's Calendar" Cricut cartridge.  I used a piece of 6x6 red cardstock.  It was from The Paper Company's Heritage Color Sheets.  I selected the dragon to cut and then I selected the "fit to page" button on my Cricut Expression to get the biggest cut possible with the size paper that I was using.
*Note:  If you are making a cut using the "fit to page" button that has layers, make sure you note the size so you can set your size dial for the layers so they will fit properly.
Happy Crafting!!!!

Altered Bird Cage

This is one really made me think outside the box.  I wanted to create a 3D item, and this is what I ended up coming up with.

I used the Tim Holtz Alterations Sizzix Bigz Caged Bird Die to create this.  I cut the cage 4 times, the bird once and the wing twice out of medium weight chipboard.  Then I painted the 4 cages on both sides with Rusty Hinge Distress Paint from Tim Holtz and sprayed them with some Sunflower Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels.
I glued the sides of the cages together with some Scotch Quick Dry Tacky Adhesive and just held them until it was dry and just did that for all 4 sides.  Then I, very gently bent in the tops of the bird cages (I cut off the little bump that is on top of the hanging whole) and used the Scotch glue again to glue them together.  I also used some Tim Holtz jump rings to help hold the tops together until the glue was dry and holding.  Then I use another jump ring through the wholes on the top to hold them together and to attach the swivel clasp to.


Time to Create a Unique View

This is an altered canvas that I created for Diemond Dies' Design Team call.  It was my first big mixed media project and I absolutely love how it turned out!!!!

I got lots of different close up pics.

I just love that clock piece in the corner!

This view finder die is a must have, it was so much fun to use!  I cut it in black chipboard and then again in chipboard covered in white paper.  I then took the squares from the black one that I cut out and put them in the white one and it actually looks like a view finder disc!!

Don't forget the sides of your canvases!

So pretty!

The arrow is pointing to the way to read the words for the title of the canvas, completely unintentional.

Love those butterflies.  I got these in a swap but I know you can find them on Etsy!

Well I hope you enjoyed my pics, if you have any questions please just ask.  As you will see in future posts I did end up making the team.  Yay me!!  It's my very first DT so it has been super exciting!!!!  Dee, the …
