Happy Halloween Belly Boxes-My Scrap Chick

Happy Halloween!!!

I just had to share these...!!!

I think you all know my computer hard drive went kaput over a week ago and it is NOW fixed tonight!!! Whew!!! Just in time to share some holiday projects with you before Halloween is over-don't miss the cute little petal pumpkin boxes I posted as well.   I had hoped to show you Halloween projects all week, so today, you get these all in two posts!  Luckily I had cut out all of these before the big crash of 2014! LOL  At least I had these projects to keep me busy between all the pacing and fretting!  I am fortunate that I have a wonderfully techie son who managed to retrieve all my pics and files!!! Lucky me!!!

Hey There Pumpkin!!!

 The Great Pumpkin Patch

I quick little Halloween share for you, I cut these little 3d pumpkin petal boxes out with my Silhouette, added the faces using vinyl, and tied on the tags with twine.  The sentiment is a cute little Studio G stamp.  I made these to give to my co-workers-all 30 of them.... 

These were oh so fun to make!!!!

Don't miss Dracula, Frankenstein, Pumpkin, and Mad Scientist Belly Boxes HERE.

happy Hoooowl-o-ween!

happy HOWL-oween!!!

Sometimes I get my inspiration from the strangest places! I made this card after seeing an advertisement in the newspaper featuring doggies dressed for Halloween!   I actually had plans to dress these cute little doggies in costume, but my computer is sick-my hard drive crashed and I can not access all the good stuff-like my Silhouette and Silhouette doggie costumes etc. Dang...just imagine that little purple doggie with a little witch hat...
I made the colorful sentiment on my Silhouette(before the crash)-oh so fun!

I used  Doodlebug-Ghouls and Goodies cardstock for my color inspiration and my Sizzix accordian die for the card base , Sizzix Circle Flip -Its #2 for the sentiment and the Paper Smooches Woofers & Tweeters stamp set..

Got to say how much I love this little green critter!

A big thanks to my son for helping me with the pics and post  until my computer is up and running again. I have lots of fun Halloween projects to share with you and I am running out of time...sheesh-it is always something!

White On White House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #181

A little late in for the challenge today-but hey! Better late than never!  

Our challenge today is White on White...your card base must be white, but you can color your image.

I cut this fancy card base with my Silhouette, added a few pearls and also used an apple embossing folder for the oval piece behind Mudpie-but it a little hard to see in this picture. The fun little sentiment was perfect for this apple eating mousie!  I do miss these matchy matchy sentiments that used to come with the House Mouse stamps!

Here are the details for this challenge!

Our very talented Teamie Kelly Smith, is hosting and has chosen this great theme;
~ WHITE ON WHITE ~(Only the image may be colored, but the rest of your project is to be ALL WHITE)

Creepy Cole and Spooky Lukey Halloween Glasses

Just a quick post here to share these fun sippee cups I made for my grandsons, Creepy Cole and Spooky  Lukey and my little punkin nephew Nicholas. I think I need to go buy some more if  the Dollar Store still has them...I have lots of 'littles' in my family-maybe I can bribe them to come see Aunt Susie on Halloween!!! LOL!

I don't make a lot of things with vinyl, so this was a fun departure from my typical cardstock and pen creations! I actually made these 2 weeks ago, but because Cole and Luke's need to be delivered, I thought I better get these photographed-and of course filled with goodies before they go! Note: I believe these should be handwashed-probably not dishwasher proof)

You can find the double walled cups at the Dollar Store and the images from the Silhouette Store-
3 cute Halloween icon set designed by Lori Whitlock.  I also added lots of little flying bats on the back  of each cup-just "cuz" little boys like that sort of creepy stuff!

I am going to add this to the October Link Up Party-Fall files on the Lori Whitlock Blog. You have the rest of the month to join in using any Lori Whitlock file (ends November 5th).

For the names I used a font on my computer named LD Funky Chunky (I think it came from Lettering Delights so that is where I linked it). I believe it was a freebie at one time but HEY-it looks like it is on sale for 50 cents right now!

Thanks again for stopping in to say Hello-I love hearing from you!

Creations by AR October Release

Creations by AR October Release!

Potions and Eye of Newt....spooky stuff

 I think these were intended to be a manly foo-foo smell good bottle and a sweet girlies foo-foo parfume...but you gotta know that I love Halloween projects!  I saw these labels  in the Silhouette store and knew right away they were perfect for this project!!! I decorated each bottle with with a fun print and cut label . (linked below).  


 Ewwwww...don't you love that spider hanging  in the middle of the bottles? 

 I thought these lids would be really hard to make-but both bottles and lids were super easy to make. I would suggest that you use Zip Dry Paper glue on these (or a similar liquid glue) as it allows for a little alignment time before it sets up.

I have to tell you that the cobwebs I used for the pictures were a real pain.  They kept stretching and getting tangled-the whole picture taking scene made me laugh! But--- It was oh so worth it to see that spooky spider hanging in the background !!!!


inside full of candy


Gift Card Holder inside

Doesn't this looks like Santa's Armoire?  

I love these little frames-I cut the "little, teeny tiny" numbers with my Silhouette. 

 The lid(top) closes and holds the doors closed

Flip the lid back and the doors open

I am showing you the inside with  A2 envelopes tucked inside, but I really think this would be just the cutest full of fun little wrapped gifties at Christmas time! It is fairly large inside ---  about 6.5 inches tall, 5 inches wide by  x 2 inches deep!!  The Armoire itself is 7.5 inches tall!

Won't you join our hop and see what the others have created? I can't wait to see!!!

Happy Birthday Barb-Light the Candles!

Happy Belated  Birthday Barb!

 Finally finished this fun Art Impressions Birthday card made especially for a great stamping friend...although just a wee bit belated! Sheesh!

I used the Fire Out Set from Art Impressions, a fun Birthday cake shaped card cut with my Silhouette and some pretty papers from SU! and Fancy Pants Be.LOVED. paper that I got at  Inspiration Emporium. I added a few crystals and a little Wink of Stella glitter on the flame. The sentiment was cut out using a circle from the Circle Flip Its #2 die cut set by Sizzix, also from Inspiration Emporium.
