Halloween fun!!!

Ssssooooo between Google and Pinterest it is a wonder I get anything done!!! I was searching around for something else (of course!) and came across this idea! Vinyl Pumpkin Witch, and while it is adorable, I figured on making it my own and came up with this idea:

I also cut her out of black card stock from the Wrap It Up cricut cartridge and used real dial size to fit accordingly on the pumpkin, I cut this scallop from another cartridge (I forgot to write it down sorry!) out of a scripted designer paper and placed black brads along the outer loops.  I had some scrunchy orange ribbon I tied in a bow for her broom and placed an orange flower on her hat.  I tied black tulle around the stem of the pumpkin, added some cord and more flowers.  The band around the middle of the pumpkin is just a hemp ribbon with black patterned washi tape placed in the center and then stapled together in the back.  The best part of this project is that after Halloween I will be able to take everything off and still use it for the fall!

........... Theeennnnnnn..... I found this AMAZING IDEA on Pinterest!!! Window Monster Decor!

Since we have just moved I have PLENTY of moving boxes and thought WHY NOT!!!  Here is what I adapted for our dining room window:

I later added some black crepe garland around the top to finish it off and my kids LOVE it!  And to think it is literally just cardboard boxes spray painted black with some gift tissue paper and foil for the eyes!!!!!!  So fun!!!  Can't wait for the neighborhood kids to come a-knockin!!!!  :)

Last, but not least, I tried a new type of card fold cased on Splitcoastampers, here:

The image is from Stampendous and I colored the adorable mummy with copic markers.  I added some little googly eyes to bring the pumpkin to life.  I used a Spellbinders square die to cut the image out, Martha Stewarts around-the-page web punch, a button and orange ribbon.  I really like the way this came together and see many possibilities in the future.  I am going to enter it in the

Happy Fall Ya'll!!!!  Now that I'm living here in the south I have come to appreciate the simple and warm greeting that comes with "Happy Fall Ya'll"!!!  The nights are starting to cool off and the days settle in the lower 80's!  I'm LOVIN it!!! Here is a card I put together for the:


I typed up the "THANKS" on the computer and cut them out with a square punch (tedious but worthwhile), the leaves and corner punch are also a die cut I found on sale a while back, the pumpkin is from BoBunny which I colored with some copic markers.  Thanks for stopping by!!!
