Hi peeps!

Today is post #2 for today, so be sure to scroll on down!

I have been quite busy switching creative gears back and forth. It can really confuse the MOJO, let me tell you!

I know, I just took you through Christmas, but now we are switching gears back to Halloween!

We still have 1 1/2 months until Halloween, so PLENTY of time to get stuff done D

Back the the Halloween talk! I have a peek at some Halloween images from Pink Cat Studio! This set called Itty Bitty Halloween, and it will release tomorrow 😀

The set is UBER ADORABLE!  Melissa developed a whole NEW! line of character’s, that are of course FAB!! They are called Bitty Betty and Bitty Bobby. OH! and don’t worry, they will be back for the next release! (WINK!)

So first up-my personal favorite project I created……

Haunted House


How cute is this little project?

The creepy monster popping out of the grave!!

I wanted to go for slightly creepy in a cute way! Make sense? I’m not a scary/creepy kind of girl. I’m more cutesy.

TODAY the My Timeless Template: It’s on the House, was released! I seriously LOVE it to pieces!  I HAD to use it when I saw this creepy, crawly image!

I printed my template, then scored it, every 1/2 inch,  to look the house boards. I also distressed it a bit. Now I could have gone TOTAL haunted house with this, but I wanted the image to be the focus, and of course—> POP!! I didn’t want to get off track by creating just a haunted house.

Going with creepy and cute…some details….


I used some layered buttons-white, avocado,  and colored BLING to make a 3D eyeball sticking out of the image! EW! The hands look like they are going to grab it!


I also used a button and MORE colored bling, along with some embroidery floss for a fun-and cute spider like detail on the ribbon. The ONLY spider I would ever think of calling CUTE! LOL!


Then the lil bat punched out, holds the “trick or treat” tag.

I just like it. Inside this I would put a bag of gummy bugs (they sell them at Target). My kids actually found them, and ate them before I could use them here-SORRY! Gotta love it.

Now for another project!

Taffy Treat Take Along


This project used the My Timeless Template: Lolli-pop Along 

Turning the “lolli=pop” insert base over, it creates a “bucket” of sorts to hold your goodies! My kids (and I) LOVE Laffy Taffy. I thought this was a fun item to just package up, and place inside. Plus they are in your expected Halloween colors 😀

The glittery white layer is suppose to be the full moon! LOL!

How seriously cute is the sentiment?


I love her! I love the cutesy scared look she has on her face as she holds closed that creepy cute pumpkin, for dear life! LOL!

I added a web and spider stamp to the background. The candy corn is some ancient patterned paper I found in my stash, so I cut out the candy corns.

This was an EASY PEASY project.

Perfect treat.

Well I am done for today! Lots more to share tomorrow. You don’t have to wait long since Melissa is releasing them early for you! No long ended suspense!

    Thank you for popping by!

    On a side note 😀 I cracked open my Cricut!!

    I was honestly  PETRIFIED of it! Once it was open it just looked so complicated and overwhelming. But, I watched the intro video and found that VERY helpful!!! After seeing that I wasn’t scared at all. They did an excellent job explaining all about it, I feel. Especially since I’m a visual person. I’m not good at “reading” instructions. I need to see it, or DO it myself.

    I actually used it today to make the tags, layered flowers/leaves on Amber’s birthday party favors! Its a FUTURE My Timeless Template 😀 so I’m not sure when I will share the photos. Trust me though, its FABULOUS! One of my faves so far!

    I also used my Sure Cuts Alot program for the tag part. Not sure if I did all that stuff correctly-I had to have a cartridge IN my Cricut to even get the paper to load prior to printing the tags I designed, using just the stuff that comes with the SCAL 2.0 program. I bought a couple of other .svg files to test the waters too, but couldn’t “play” too long as Amber’s party is Sat, and we have a FULL schedule this week. I’m on major crunch time.

    I guess my bottom line is WOW! I LOVE my Cricut Expression! I can’t believe it took me so long to get one! LOL! I do need to go get the tool kit, and of course I want EVERYTHING! The time it saves me from punching or die cutting my own flowers ALONE was worth it. Oh! And I can totally see needing a new mat, and most likely will get some extra cutting blades 😀

    OK I’m really done now!LOL!

    Anyone with SCAL 2.0 advice-please share! LOL! I’m so clueless. I have to check out some of the links to videos people sent too! It is hard to even know where to start some times.
