Santa Soup plus a Bonus project

HAPPY 12/12/12
 
 
Ohhh aren't these cute! 
 
A great gift for kids if you're going to visit or a teacher gift...or even an office party gift!  Check out how I made these for the Christmas Table setting:)  Scroll to the bottom to see my Bonus Project!
 
I used my TH Pillow Box die (again) to create the suits.  Just remove the end flap with the notch.
 
 
I cut a strip of white for the collar and embossed it with that folder...Divine Swirl(?)  Then some punching for the buttons and buckle. 

 
I have a bunch of test tubes I picked up at my LSS.  Fill with a packet of hot chocolate (about half a pack), some crushed candy cane and a few mini marshmallows.
 
 
Then I made my little tag tied with twine.   Isn't this stamp adorable... Scrappy Moms Stamp from their new Christmas Cheer set.  Works perfect!

 
BONUS PROJECT!!!!
 
I made the same thing (made these first) but these are cutlery holders for the Christmas Table.  My BIL & SIL are hosting Christmas dinner in their home this year.  So, I made her 20 of these cutlery settings for her table.  I made 10 each of the red and green.  She can have kids one colour and adults another.  Or alternating colour for a more festive table setting. 
 
How festive these will look! 
 
 
These are really fast to make and one sheet of 8 1/2"x11" paper makes 2 pillow box cuts.  The best part...you can use up your scraps to build them.

  3. These are adorable.
    Great way to use this die!!!
    Wayne had this die in his hand for me when we were on our trip. But I didn't get it.
    I think Wayne has a man-crush on Tim Holtz products ;)

Altered Halloween Advent Calendar w/ Video

WOW, I think this is my biggest Halloween project yet.  It took me 5 days to complete and I could have kept adding!!!  As you know I adore Halloween and yes I have begun bringing out my Halloween goodies.  Lots of photos in this post and there is so much to see.  So lets get into the project and get you inspired for Halloween!
I was asked by Scrapbooker's Paradise (where I teach) to make one of these Kaiser Craft Shadow Boxes...with a Halloween Theme!!!  Arm twisted and mission accepted.  I am going all Tim on this one! I started by spraying all the pieces with a Hammered Finish in a gun metal grey. The set even comes with numbers;) I used My Minds Eye Happy Haunting paper to create each box with a great pattern paper background.  Then using all my Tim Holtz goodies and $1 Store finds I went to town decorating.  I used various numbers from the rub ons, metal numbers, wooden and those that came with the Shadow Box.   Be sure to dry fit before gluing!  It took me 4 hours to die cut…

Apothecary Curiosities Coffin

Creepy coffin, I love this one!  I saw these little wooden coffins at the $1 Store and had to get one.  I ended up making this for a class and everyone loved making them.  Halloween is the best!  All the creepy stuff I get away with creating! I picked up these great skeletons at Michaels on a string of garland...6 per rope.  With a little force he fits! I made a template of the coffin and cut Tim Holtz Laboratorie paper to fir in the back. I accidentally broke my skeleton's arm.  Oops!  So, I glued his arm holding the glitter pumpkin.  SAVE! I picked up these skulls on a bracelet for $1.  Layering the Curiosities Coffin is key!  You want to look at the layers, like mesh, pen nib and a spider! I added the "shelves" using popsicle sticks cut to size.  This way it has a cabinet feel. The Apothecary Remnant Rubs are so perfect of the glass bottles full of eyes! Adding a little Spanish Moss makes it all creepy. I LOVE HIM! After the sprayed coffins were dry I sanded them to …

A BEVY OF MONSTERS

***WARNING...CUTE ALERT***

The Monsters and Creeps are out and around.  So lock your doors to keep safe and sound.
If you are looking for a great Halloween card that is UNDER 10 MINUTES to build this is it.  I made a variety of these to give you different ideas of creeps you can make.  From start to finish these Halloween cards are a breeze and would be perfect for a class, office and for some friends.  I made these in between making projects...mostly waiting for things to dry!  The googlie eyes are different sizes make them so cute. 
All the cards are stamped with Scrappy Moms Stamps Halloween set Bewitched! Mummy

Frankenstein
Candy Corn
Vampire, I love this one!  I didn't distress the white glitter paper.  Then added this red glitter glue to the fangs.
Ghost, I posted this the other day HERE
All my fun cards together
I cut the cards to 5x5.  Then I cut a 4 3/3x 4 3/4 black for the black behind the googlie eyes.  Pick your coloured carstock and rip.  I distressed the torn edges a bit then…
