Happy Halloween!

I have a confession to make…I have not always been a person who has loved crafting for Halloween.  The creepy, crawly part of Halloween is just not my thing.  But when I discovered Doodlebug’s Halloween collections, I was hooked.  And with collections like the new Pumpkin Party, I actually craft as much for Halloween as I do for Christmas!

This collection of step cards was inspired by the amazing shapes in the Odds and Ends pack!  I love that there are as many background shapes as there are cute characters!  They make setting up cute step cards as a little scene a breeze!

And while I love the background pieces, like the amazing spooky tree that is as spooky as he is cute, and the fantastic acetate fence, who can deny that this little zombie isn’t as sweet as can be as well!  The Odds and Ends packs are a card maker’s dream!

I have a few more details and close up images over on the Doodlebug blog if you are interested in popping by or finding out more about the product!  In the meantime, enjoy the day whether you celebrate Halloween or not!

Thanks for stopping by!

Doodlebug Washi Tape project

Good morning!  The countdown is on!  Only one day left until Halloween, and only one day left until you can break into all the Halloween treats (hahahaha – yeah, right…that happened weeks ago).  I wanted to share a quick project with you today featuring washi tape from the super cute Doodlebug collection called Booville…

…these cute little cookie treat bags!  The best part (besides how simple these were to pull together) is a new use I found for washi tape – twist ties!

That’s right – you are not going to believe how easy these are to make, and how truly perfect washi tape is for this purpose!  So come on over to the Doodlebug blog to see how I pulled them together.

Oh, and if you have a pre-treat or two today, don’t worry – your secret is safe with me!

Thanks for stopping by!  Hugs,

Hugs from mummy!

Halloween is just around the corner and I have to admit that I am having so much with Halloween crafts this year! A few years ago, Halloween was not a time of year that I got all excited about in the crafts department…until I discovered the world of cute spook crafting…like this cute stamp from Tiddly Inks called Pum’kin Juice Party.

This month over at the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog, we have a challenge all about Halloween, so I thought it might be fun to pull together another sample to inspire some more creations.  This cute was coloured up with Copics to match some of Doodlebug’s newest Halloween-themed collection – Booville.  Teamed up with a handwritten sentiment from this “mummy”, I can’t wait to give this to one of my little munchkins in a couple of weeks.

How about you?  Do you have any Halloween crafts on the go right now?

Thanks for stopping by!

 

Halloween fun!

It’s Halloweens time!  Okay, it’s not quite Halloween time, but it is time to get Halloween crafty!  And the good news is that Christy from Tiddly Inks has some new goodies to get us all excited about getting the good old markers out!

Now, the truth of the matter is that there are no shortage of cute Halloween images over at Tiddly Inks!  But today, I wanted to introduce you to my favourite little collection called Pum’kin Juice Party.  This set comes with a whole bunch of cute kitty-themed images that will have you crafting from now right up until Halloween – not only because there are so many, but because they are so cute that you won’t want to stop!

 

 

I teamed up these images with some cute paper from Doodlebug.  This is one of their new collection called Booville.  It has lots of great colours to work with, and I find that it is really easy to match my Copics with Doodlebug’s colours.

It makes for easy work when I am colouring, and while I love a good crafting challenge every now and again, struggling to find coordinating paper is not one of them!

Now, given that it is the first Tuesday of the month, that also means that it is challenge time at the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog. If you hadn’t guessed, the theme is Spookaboo, so we are all about Halloween.  If you haven’t had a chance to check out the design team’s inspiration pieces, make sure you pop over to do that!  And then, it’s your turn to get crafty!  We always love to see what you come up with.

Now, given that I have some Halloween crafts under my belt, I think that warrants a little sneak into the stash of Halloween candy, right?
