Halloween decor

Ok so before I start with my project I wanted to quickly talk about what I spent all morning doing. I spent all morning putting "wallpaper" in my daughters calico critters house. Yesterday she got a house for like little animals and you can go on there website and download the printable wallpaper. So I did that and got to cutting and putting atg tape on each piece. I admit it does look super cute but it is a lot of work basically for nothing since my daughter is 2 and a half so she really doesn't care if it looks cute or not. But oh we'll it was worth spending the time with her watching it all come together. Ok so enough about that on to my project.

I have been working on a lot of Halloween decor for my house. I am trying to make as much stuff as I can without buying too much. So I decided to make the apothecary jars from the toil and trouble SVG Cuts file. I made the tall and the short one.

For the tall one I used some glittery halloweeny paper with some paper metallic like paper super cute

For the short one I used some Halloween vellum like paper it doesn't look see through in pic but it is. I didn't want to put too much on the outside of this one since I wanted to show off the paper most of all.

I am planning on making a couple more projects for my Halloween decor so be on the look out for those.

1st Halloween card of the year

So can I just say that I have been so swamped at work that its ridiculous. I'm so exhausted and not had a break to relax(craft) in a good bit. I did realize that I forgot to post my Halloween card. I used SVG cuts Fall Harvest kit for my card base and trees. As for the decorations I used a little bit from a couple of different kits. So enough describing lets get to the pics.

The cute pumpkin, the fence and the black cat are all from SVG cuts midnight jamboree kit

The cute spider hanging from the tree is from SVG cuts party on elm street kit I am unsure where I got the witches pot and potion bottle from.

The bats in the tree and the banner in the tree are also from SVG cuts party on elm street kit. The pumpkins are from the midnight jamboree kit and the graves with ghosts I think are from a Lettering Delights but I could be wrong. Sorry I cannot remember where exactly I got them from.

Well I'm off to bed now and hopefully I can wake up bright and refreshed. Remember I love to hear your thoughts on all of my projects so please let me know what your thoughts are.

Cherry blossom tree card

I love the free Kyoto Kuties file from lettering delights. I prob have used this file over a hundred times. Its so super cute. I also used the fall tree card file from SVG cuts Fall Harvest kit for the base of my card.

This card was really hard to photograph because it's just so big and awkward to me.

Here is the second flap of my card I used the tree from the original file but I used the cherry blossoms from the free SVG cuts files.

Here is the final flap which is my fav one. This is the tree from lettering delights free file. I modified the tree to make it fit on the card. I also adding a little hummingbird at the top.

Well that's all for today I hope that you enjoyed my card as much as I enjoyed making it. I don't think I will be giving this one away to just anybody. I have to make sure its a special person. ;)
