Halloween Decor ~ Thankful Thursday Design Team

Hey everyone! Thanks for stopping by today. Our design team today has created lots of Halloween Decor to help get your creative juices flowing. I have to start by saying that I am totally addicted to Pinterest. Thanks Emily!  ;)

I had "repinned from someone elses pin" this cute ghost quite a while ago and when I saw what the challenge was for today, I knew I had to try it. I was really nervous last night when I started working on it that it wasn't going to dry in time and it wasn't going to stand up on its own. It took many times of spraying with the starch and letting it dry and spraying again and letting it dry. I put wiggly eyes and a bow on my "girl" ghost. Here's how it turned out:

Sorry if the pictures are blurry. I'm having some steadiness issues. I think my little ghost turned out so cute. What do you think? I'd love to hear your comments. Go on over to Crazy About Cricut's blog and check out all the other design team projects. They are pretty awesome!

My Pinkalicious Blog Hop

So, Friday was the My Pinkalicious Blog Hop over at My Pink Stamper. The challenge for this months blog hop was to make a goodie bag or 3-D item that is for a Holiday. Any Holiday or Occasion. I went with making a little goodie bag to hold some Halloween treats. I think this one will be for my neighbors. I know they are going through a rough time and I'm hoping this will bring some Halloween cheer to them if there is such a thing. :)

Click here to view the tutorial on this box. I also made a matching card to go with it. I think it turned out cute! I stickled the heck out of the pumpkin! :)

Hope you all like my creations today! Thanks for stopping by and stop by again real soon!

If you go to and in the search type in Duck Brand Duct Tape, they have a whole bunch of awesome projects you can try and it's so much fun with all the different colors and patterns of duct tape you can find.

Thankful Thursday Design Team

Hey Everyone! Today our Design Team was to make a project with a monster on it. I just made a card this time, but I think it turned out pretty cute. This was my first time adding tulle to a card and I love the look it gives the card.

The little monster on the card is a Doodlebug Design Doodle-Pop. I think these are soooo cute. I got a few of them at Archiver's but I've seen them all over the internet. The stamp "Too Cute To Spook" is just a cheap wooden stamp that my Wal-Mart started carrying. I also got the bat ribbon at Wal-Mart in the scrapbooking section. I also added a little bit of purple stickles in the "O's" of Spook.

I was feeling soooo creative, I decided to make a second card. :)  Thanks for stopping by everyone! Go on over to Crazy About Cricut's blog and check out the other design team members monster projects.

Hey Everyone! Thanks for stopping by today. So, my son needed a book cover for a class at school and by the time we knew this and went looking for one, we couldn't find any that were reasonably priced. Anyway, my sons teacher said that they couldn't use brown paper bags (like I did when I was in school) because they don't hold up well enough. Well, my boys and I have been checking out the Duck Brand Duct Tape You Tube Channel a lot and have been addicted to making things with Duct Tape. There was a tutorial on how to make a Duct Tape book cover using a brown paper bag and Duct Tape. We used green (my sons favorite color) and metallic silver. What do you think?

I think it turned out pretty good and I think it will serve the purpose. Also, he can write on the Duct Tape with permanent marker. So, if you have some Duct Tape sitting around, get creative and make something with it. Stop by again soon!
