Happy Hauntings Sparkly Witch Hat

Another witchy item a Sparkly Witch hat to go along with those lovely boots posted earlier.  The hat also features the ruffled ribbon look with a cute little dangly spider.  This card design is also from the Cricut Happy Hauntings cartridge.  

Coffee Filter Witch Broom

My friend Cheryl S. is pretty creative and clever and she made these Witch Brooms using coffee filters and twigs that her dh pruned from the trees in their yard.  So cute.  Thanks, Cheryl.

Stampin' Up Halloween Smiles Card

The happy jolly little pair of Jack-O-Lantern's on this card are from the SU set Halloween Smiles (Retired)  these guys are too cute!  The papers are SU Pumpkin Pie, Crumb Cake and Crushed Curry.  The accent designer paper is from a paper pack called Midnight Magic by Recollections.

Stampin' Up Bootiful Occassions Card

Look closely at the eyes looking back at you on this "Bootiful" boot.  Stampin' Up stamp set "Bootiful Occasions" was used for this card, along with Basic Black, Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie and  Rich Razzleberry papers and markers.


Happy Hauntings Witch Boot

It's time to get to work on Halloween projects.  This beautiful sparkly Witch's boot features frilly ribbon accents in bold colors.  This boot can be made as a card or as a decoration.   The design is cut out using the Cricut "Happy Hauntings" cartridge.

The frilly elements and ribbon lace up was designed by Kimberly at My Craft Spot. Thanks Kim for the wonderful video.  (

Halloween Countdown Calendar

How about this "BOO" countdown calendar.  The numbers are magnetic so you change them out daily. The kids will love this, just post it on you refrigerator and countdown the days till spooky Halloween.  I have used mine for a few years now and the chipboard design holds up really well. 

This calendar was a gift from my friend Cheryl S.  Thanks Cheryl

These fun and easy little albums can hold photos and trinkets from your child's summer adventures.  Tags are large enough to hold a photo and journaling.  The children can join in making these and color the stamped images on the paper bags.
