A Little Spooky Mail~

Every once in a while it’s good to challenge yourself.

Or so I’m told.

I decided to do this by joining in the Cricut Message Board Fabulous Partnered Postcard Swap.

Sounds easy, right?

That’s what I thought until someone mentioned they needed to be flat and mail-able. Yikes!

Most of you know that I don’t do flat well. He he.

My postcards~

I used bits and pieces from several of my favorite Halloween collections layered on chipboard.

Remember when I mentioned my shaker card addiction?

I know there’s NO way this is passing any postal regulations.

But, it’s cute.

Halloween-Postcards-Close2

I used Glow In the Dark glitter to add extra steam to my little witch’s cauldron.

And I sent a note to my partner suggesting she not to mail this one either.

I’m hoping the rest will be okay as I tried to keep them simple.

DCWV Too Cute Banner

Today the current DCWV Design Team is bringing you a group of projects that were made using the newest, cutest DCWV Halloween stack, Eek-a-Boo!

Halloween is quickly approaching and it’s time to turn your spooky crafting up to high gear!

If you didn’t come from Karen’s blog, hop back on your broom and fly to the DCWV blog to make sure you don’t miss a creepy, crawly thing.

Want to know what’s scary?

How much I love shaker cards.

I think it’s why I have so many sequins.

Seriously, I even found a way to put a shaker element on my one of my last layouts.

So when I saw SVGCuts Moon Card in their Haunted Forest Collection, I knew I needed to find a way to turn it into a shaker card.

My card~

Moon-Shaker

I grabbed my favorite patterns and colors from the Eek-a-Boo stack and used my Cricut Explore to cut the card.

To create the shaker element I place a transparency sheet under my moon cuts and then used foam tape to create lift and act as a bumper for the sequins.

The making of a shaker card~

I also added an additional layer to the back of the card front to close in the star openings.

We don’t want any sequins falling out.

And just how cute do those DCWV Fall & Halloween star sequins look in there?

Too cute if you ask me.

A few close-ups~

I layered the star cuts with a Halloween flair badge, more sequins and a bit of the Fall & Halloween Chipboard Glitter Frames.

Instant Smiles~

Ever see something and love it so much that you decided you just had to make your own?

That’s exactly what happened to me when I saw the SVGCuts Instant Memories Camera Box.

My camera~

Instant

I just so happened to have DCWV’s Honey Chic Stack out on my desk.

The colorful and fun prints were perfect for my camera.

This box is a perfect size to include a gift or possibly a coordinating mini album.

It’s finished size is 7 inches wide by 7 inches high by 2 inches deep.

Which is also the perfect size for a four-year old to carry around going “click, click.”

Hoppity Hop Hop~

Here comes Peter Cottontail.

Hopping down the bunny trail.

Easter’s on its way. He he.

My Bunny~

Bunny

I love this bunny from the SVG Cuts Bunny Hop Set.

So, much that I spent much of yesterday afternoon trying to make him.

I wanted him to be sturdy and to have a well-loved stuffed animal look, so I used paper from DCWV’s The Chalk Fun Stack.

Since the paper has a special coating on it, I found my hot glue gun worked best at gluing all the parts together.

It also allowed me to work a bit quicker than waiting for liquid glue to dry.

And that’s always a plus.

Did I mention that he can be filled with yummy Easter treats?

Ready to be stuffed~

Bunny-Open

I’m thinking that he might just need a friend or two to keep him company.

So, I’d better hop right to it. He he.
