Haunted House Home Decoration

Hello! Today I am sharing how I did this spooky haunted house. I had so much fun doing the Witch Hat that I had to do this one too.

Using the Creative Embellishments Plywood Haunted House, I painted it with The Crafter's Workshop Matte Black Gesso and let it dry. Then I added a layer of DecoArt Americana Weathered Wood and let it dry. Next, I painted a layer of grey and brown paint mixed together in a thin layer over the weathered wood medium. As the paint dried it started to crack showing the black color underneath.

Then I painted the Creative Embellishments Wood Veneer Going Batty bats black and adhered them using a the Xyron Mini Multi-Stick Glue Gun. Painted some Creative Embellishments Ghosts white also the spider web from the Creative Embellishments Halloween Scene 2 Set and adhered them all to the back of the house using the Xyron Mini Multi-Stick Glue Gun.

Then I painted some of the Creative Embellishments Jolly Jack-O-Lanterns orange with brown stems and adhered them. Then added some black cardstock behind all the faces of the pumpkins, ghosts, and the back of the haunted house.

Still Playing With A Full Deck Birthday Card

 Hello! Today I am sharing a fun birthday card with a little bit of snark.

However, I do earn a small commission when you click on my links and make a purchase from them. Thank you, and I appreciate your support!

First, I layered up black and red cardstock and then a piece of patterned paper to create my base. Then I added a playing card into the center. For the stamps, I stamped the Crackerbox Stamps Cards in both black and red ink because I couldn't decide which color I wanted them in and then fussy cut them out. Since I couldn't decide which one I liked better I decided to layer them and adhere them with some 3D Foam Squares.

Then I stamped the Crackerbox Stamps Full Deck Set of 2 Sentiments in red and added the sentiment with 3D Foam Squares as well. The cards and sentiment can be purchased separately or as a bundle with the Crackerbox Stamps Full Deck & Cards Set of 3.
This card would make a great masculine birthday card or add some bling to make it a little more feminine.

A Witchy Halloween Slimline Card

 Hello! Today I am here sharing a Witchy Halloween slimline card.

I first made a frame by die cutting out 3 squares on the card front panel. Then I sprayed it with a green, orange, and black color spray and inked the edges of the frame. Next, I used the Crackerbox Stamps Witch's Boots and stamped it on the card front 3 different times in 3 different directions. On the top and bottom images, I did not apply ink to the hanging spider, only on the one in the center. Then I colored in each image with Copic markers.


Next, I adhered the frame I made with the color sprays to the front. In the top corner of the card, I stamped the Crackerbox Stamps Web Corner Left.


For the bottom square, I stamped the Crackerbox Stamps Witch Is In Hat and fussy cut it out, and adhered it with some 3D foam squares.

Halloween Haunted House Slimline Card

 Hello! Today I am sharing a FaBOOlous Haunted Halloween slimline card with you all. Halloween cards are one of my favorite types of cards to make. For my card today I went with a monochromatic theme to give it more of an eery feel.

However, I do earn a small commission when you click on my links and make a purchase from them. Thank you, and I appreciate your support!

I first started by using navy cardstock and The Crafter's Workshop Slimline Clouds Stencil with some white ink and blending brushes to create the spooky clouds in the background. Then I stamped the Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps Haunted House Tall and embossed it with black embossing powder and colored it in lightly with Derwent Procolour Pencils. I didn't want to color it in too dark to take away from the monochromatic look.


 I die-cut out some ghosts using Maker's Movement Spooky Buds Die Set in vellum. I used the Xyron Create-A-Sticker to add adhesive to the vellum ghosts and then randomly added them to my card.


I stamped the Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps FaBOOlous Sentiment and their Bats Flying By and heat embossed them too. Matted the card front to some black cardstock and added to the card base and I was done.

Super Cute Self Binding Accordion Mini Album

Hello! Today I am sharing a cute self-binding accordion mini album that I made using i-Crafter dies.


Some of the products I have used in this post have been provided to me by various companies. The opinions I share are solely my own. Affiliate links may be used where possible at no cost to you. However, I do earn a small commission when you click on my links and make a purchase from them. Thank you, and I appreciate your support!

First I assembled the mini-album by using the following dies from i-Crafter:


After assembling the album, I then added a ribbon to the front and back of the album using the Xyron Mega Runner.


Then I used the i-Crafter Water Lily, 3D Dimensional Embossing Folder By Lynda Kanase, and added them to the front and back covers.


This really was an easy album to make. It was just a little time-consuming to adhere all the little die cuts down but using my Xyron Disposable Sticker Maker really helped speed things up by adding adhesive to all of the little die cuts at once.


After adding adhesive to all the die cuts, I then started decorating all the pages with them.
The dies I used from i-Crafters were:
Alphabet, Haley Outline
Animalopes
Love Bugs












Several of the designers from Designer Crafts Connection also received fun products from i-Crafters and have created even more inspiration.

Halloween Witch Hat Home Decor

Hey, y'all! Today I am sharing how I created this fun Halloween Witch Hat home decor piece.

Some of the products I have used in this post have been provided to me by various companies. The opinions I share are solely my own. Affiliate links may be used where possible at no cost to you. However, I do earn a small commission when you click on my links and make a purchase from them. Thank you, and I appreciate your support!

I first started with the Creative Embellishments Large Witch Hat and painted it with The Crafter's Workshop Matte Black Gesso. Then I took some cheesecloth and sprayed it black using some Distress Black Soot Spray Stain and adhered it to the hat with some Matte Mod Podge making sure to leave some wrinkles in the cloth. For the buckle around the hat, I painted it black and then painted some Super Thick Gel over the top to give it a glossy look. Then I traced the buckle onto a piece of purple glitter cardstock and cut it out and adhered it to the back of the buckle. Then adhered it to the front of the hat using the Xyron Mini Multi Stick Glue Gun.


Then I added some flowers and one of the cats from the Creative Embellishments Cat Set 2 using the Xyron Mini Multi Stick Glue Gun. I also painted the cat black and then mixed some black glitter in with the Super Thick Gel and added that to give some shine and texture to the cat. To accent the hat and embellishments I rubbed on some The Crafter's Workshop Stencil Butter in Orchid and in Champagne Gold with my finger.

Halloween Decor

Halloween is going to be here sooner than we know it and I have started on my Halloween decorations for around the house.

Some of the products I have used in this post have been provided to me by various companies. The opinions I share are solely my own. Affiliate links may be used where possible at no cost to you. However, I do earn a small commission when you click on my links and make a purchase from them. Thank you, and I appreciate your support!

I started with an old piece of wood that we had in the backyard and cut it into three pieces. Then painted it black with some The Crafter's Workshop Gesso in Matte Black and sanded the edges of the pieces to distress them slightly, then adhered them all together.


For the words, I used StyleTechCraft Glossy Vinyl in White and Orange and cut them out using my Silhouette Cameo 4 and Silhouette Studio Designer Software. I love how well StyleTechCraft Vinyl cuts and how easy it is to weed. Next, I used the StyleTechCraft Transfer Tape and transferred the words onto the wood pieces. Super easy to do and the vinyl stuck to the gesso and wood perfectly!

Then I added some embellishments and wrapped some twine around the stack of books. Placed them on a shelf for a fun Halloween decor piece.
