Is it Halloween yet?

"Mom, is it Halloween yet?"
"Mom, is it Halloween yet?"
"Mom, is it Halloween yet?"


Here's a fun little project for your kids! I made a Halloween Countdown using 99 cents frame from Ikea to help us getting ready for Halloween. What's so cool about this frame is that there are 2 sides. Woo hoo! Now talking about cheap and classy lookin'. Great job Ikea!

Our lil' moster is so excited to help me flip the countdown thingy. Now if you would only flip one per day mister Z mommy would really appreciate it! =)

The part that took the longest?!?!? Would be......

Drumroll please?!

Yup you guessed it! The countdown thing-a-ma-jic!

This is a great way to get your kids involved. Make them punch 31 scallops, squares, circles, or whatever shape you want! Oh wait scratch that out. Make that 41 cuz mommy may need extra in case she can't stamp right! I'm not saying this from experience. Now bust out your No. stamps! Start stamping and embossing, stamping and embossing, and repeat the process. After awhile you may be saying some choice words but that's the beauty of us not living in the same house! LOL

No seriously it wasn't that bad. But I think I maxed out on stamping & embossing for today!

So is it Halloween yet?!

{Cello}brate Halloween

I saw the cutest Halloween cello bags at Michaels and had to get them. I had no idea what I was going to use them for. All I knew was I didn't want to put food in them.

This is what I came up with. The Halloween organizer for my inspiration board.

I had to throw up the fall colors on the board because where I live there's no fall or autumn. Sad I know! =(
Whenever I run out of creative juice that's one of many places I look to for inspiration.

This would be great to put on the fridge or locker too!

I'm so ready to {cello}brate Halloween with lots of sweets!

Gobble, Gobble, Gobble

Turkey anyone? How about Free turkey?! Halloween is next month and Thanksgiving will be here before you know it. So I thought I should share the cut with you so my hard work doesn't go to waste. I found the original image here and converted into .scut2 file for you to use with SCAL.

If you have any questions please let me know.

Download the turkey .scut2 file here.

Quilted Lambie Card

This card would be great to go along with a homemade baby quilt. Don't ask me when the baby blanket will be done. =)

Do not waste your scraps ladies! Turn them into a quilt mat and put it through your die cutting machine. In this case I used my Cricut Expression. Make sure you choose a solid image or a simple image so you can get the best effect! Have fun!

- From my Kitchen Cartridge
- DCWV Safari Kids Stack
- 1 piece of any cardstock (mat)
- Mini Red Christmas Bell
- Embroidery Floss
- Vintage Photo Distress Ink
- Uni-ball Signo Gel Pen (white)

Here's a close up of the card. I used the 3D foam dimension and faux stitch around the lambie. Isn't he so cute?!

Grown-Up Bib

I'm a 'grown-up' who loves to wear bib... bib necklace! Noticed I said grown-up... I didn't say mature. hehe
What do you get when you combine felt + satin + ribbon + rhinestones + buttons + brads?

You get this cutesy necklace bib!

I used sizzix die to cut the 2 felt flowers.

Best 99 cents I've ever spent!

I just purchased the first single from Sam Tsui! All I can say is quit college! haha. I've never said that to anyone but Sam and Kurt are so talented. I love everything about this song (Don't Want An Ending); the lyrics, the voice, the acting, the location, the video, the editing, the list goes on.

If you've never heard of Sam or Kurt please check this out! They were on Oprah awhile back. They are amaaaaazing!!!
