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.

Snoopy---Group Hugs by Paper Smooches

Sometimes we need some cards to send 'just because'.  Hug cards are really one of  the best reasons to send a card. I cut the Snoopy and Woodstock with my Silhouette by tracing a picture from the web.  I wanted to keep them clean and simple, so the papers are simple and cheerful too! 

 This stamp set is from the Paper Smooches Group Hugs stamp set from Inspiration Emporium. It really has wonderful sentiments-14 in all!  

I love clean and simple cards...I really think they are my favorite type, but they sometimes can be harder to make!

I am entering Snoopy in the following challenges:

You've Got A Friend

Yes, I certainly do have friends. I must say...I LOVE my House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge team!!!! 

Myself and my fellow teamie Sue Drees have had  very rough  times this summer with family illness and tragedy. Our team has supported both of us through these tough times. 
Last week we both received a big priority mail envelope full of LOVE! 

You know-there are times when a single  moment just touches you down to your toes! My teamies sent me these cards as a surprise and a wonderful gesture of kindness and friendship. My heart just leaped when I opened each card. 

I was so touched by their thoughtfulness . My heart bursts with pride that I am a member of this amazing team. THANK YOU TEAMIES-there are no words to convey how much this meant to me. My Mom wants you to know how touched she was by the cards and the messages you wrote as well. (I had to double dare promise to bring back her cards after I photographed them!)

I hope you enjoy seeing these cards as much as I enjoy having them.

America made for my Mom

House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge #179-Autumn/Fall


It's Mice to be Loved!
Lovely Heather is our host for this Fall/Autumn challenge  #179!

I chose this Knit Gift stamp and made it into a fall card, using warm fall colors instead of winter colors and added this fun fall frame cut file designed by Sarah Bailey cut with my Silhouette! 

How fun!!! I did a little  resizing and ungrouping of the Silhouette cut file to get a matching opening for the branched frame, which worked out pretty slick! I must tell you-Michaels basic cardstock 12x12 cuts so nicely for these detailed/tiny pieced files like the frame.
