31 Days of Halloween - Day 23

It's the 23rd of October and it's time for my 23rd creation.

I have a mini album/pop up card to share with you today.  It's so fun to make that I even have a tutorial on it from a previous make.  It can be used as a mini album, as it has enough room for passport-sized photos and a little journaling.  It could also be a card as it folds flat and fits in an envelope!

I have of course gone with the Halloween theme, with bright papers from Spotlight, and stickers from Doodlebug Designs.

I inked the edges, and added some ribbon to hold the album open or closed.






The digi images that I have used are from Free Dearie Dolls Digi Stamps - they are available in lined and coloured images and have been a favourite of mine for many years.  The last photo shows what the album/card looks like closed.  I used a gold glittery patterned cardstock.

31 Days of Halloween - Day 22

It's the 22nd of October and it's time for my 22nd creation.

The weekend turned out to be super busy, and I still haven't made it to my craft room lol  So I have another digi layout for you.  This one uses a template from Designs by Cindy Schneider and the papers and elements are from Kristin Aagard

The photos are from Halloween 2011, when we lived in the city and our entire block had a Halloween party that people attended from near and far.  The girls enjoyed inviting their friends and even I dressed up to walk with them and trick-or-treat.


I love digi scrapping, there's no paper waste and I can reuse my favourite papers and elements over and over again.  I can also resize everything to just the way I want it, flip and rotate or even change the colour, and using templates makes everything sit beautifully.  Masks and stamps are also fun to use, and if an idea doesn't work out - just remove it!

Today I have a full house, there are kids everywhere and I don't have a moments peace to craft.  We've just finished a birthday party and now we're onto a sleepover lol

So I'm sharing the inside of my Foxy Fix - my sweet little no.1 Sugar Cookie that I've decorated for Halloween.  You might have seen the front and charm in a previous post during 31DOH.  I have washi tapes, paperclips, die-cuts, shaker pockets and stickers.

Here's what I have so far..


I bought some images from Etsy and printed them out.  Then I laminated them to create die-cuts.  I also used my Fuse Tool to create a shaker pocket and filled it with stars and acetate shapes.  There's also some beautiful pictures of Halloween decor that I printed and added.  I was given some shaped paper clips and used them to hold the items in place.


This one has some neat washi tape samples that I was given in a pocket letter swap.  They're the perfect size to fit in my Foxy.


This is another shaker pocket that I made.  I used a baseball card sleeve and then sealed the goodies inside with my Fuse Tool.


Some more die-cuts.  The little pumpkins came as separate files and I printed and cut them out, then arranged them in a line before laminating.  The tag was from a pocket letter exchange.


This is the front of my Foxy.  There's a pocket on the left which I've added some diecuts.  My charm is in the middle and my personalised bear.  I also have some witchy legs poking out of one of the pages.


And here she is - my Foxy.  The sticker on the front was given to me in a pocket letter exchange.  It's perfect for Halloween.  I created the bow out of some vibrant Day of the Dead themed fabric.

I'm so excited for Halloween this year because my teen is going to join in again!  This is her when she was about 8, the age my youngest is now.  I was able to have fun, take photos and dress her up. But apparently she's too cool for that - until this year!  She's going to get dressed up as a Vampire and she's bringing her friends over for our big fancy dress Halloween party. 

So I'm sharing some photos of the year she was a witch.  I used Photoshop magic to put her under the cubby (she didn't get squished at all).


For this layout I used a template from Designs by Cindy Schneider and the digi elements are from Kristen Aagard.

Today was super rainy, it has been that way for 3 days now.  Very dreary outside, windy and perfect for crafting! So I got my Copics out and did some colouring. I have no idea what I'm going to do with this image yet, but she looks great on my table with all my Halloween decor.

The image is from The East Wind and I coloured her as if she was Elphaba - the wicked witch from The Wizard of Oz.  I also added some gems to her hair and a fuzzy green ring.




I'm really happy with how she turned out - colouring skin in green sure was something new!
