Glass Block

I am not sure being known as "crafty" at the office is a good thing!  I was asked to make a Trophy for the department that is the best decorated for Halloween.  This will be something that will be passed around year after year.  So this will sit in the winning department year around... I took on the challenge and well, it was the toughest project I ever made.  I guess because I was making it for my office and not myself... so I am not used to "showing-off my creations.  As simple as this one was to make, it was most difficult for many reasons...
I didn't want it to be "Halloween" themed since it would be sitting out all year long but needed enough Halloween tones to make it a Halloween trophy... yes, it was just that confusing!!!
Anyways, here it is...

Spider Web

So very simple and easy to make... I bought some gum and thought I would dress it up a bit in spirit of Halloween.

I cut white paper 4-1/4x 5-1/2 and ran through the cuttlebug using my spiderweb embossing folder.  Cut the spider form Happy Hauntings at 6" added a little splash of color using the Irock (not sure what that thing is called) and popped it on the cover.  Wrapped the cover around some Orbit Cinnamint gum...

What do you think

It's the only time of year where you feel safe to "Boo" your team mate!!  Our Lin Lady High Performance Team "Boo-ed" each other for Halloween.  It's always fun to get a little something in the mail.  I filled a bag with Halloween goodies, socks, and a $5.00 Starbucks Gift Card.  The Topper was made by using the witch from EDPD's...I made her a year ago...finally got to use her!  Hahahahha

Halloween Birthday Treat

Using Wrap it Up, I thought I would make a cute box for a birthday treat.  I cut the box at 9" and it was very, very small... at least for the candy I bought to put in it!!  So I decided to put in a flame less candle and slip a Gift card along the back.  I loved the Halloween paper!!

Easy to make, but I think making it much bigger, would allow more room for birthday gift?  I hate to always give candy... I like to receive it, but I think more and more these days, we should try and stay away from always giving sugar to our friends and family.  I just simply don't know what else to ever give away... ideas are more than welcomed!!
Thanks for looking!!

Halloween Socks

I love Socks!  Maybe that is why I am sponsored by LIN Socks... although those are athletic socks!!  I bought these cute Halloween Socks at Target!  I thought these would make a cute Halloween treat!

I used various cartridges for the bag toppers, but I did make them to go along with each pair of socks so they would match!  I think they turned out pretty cute... what do you think?

Dracula's coffin

I just love Halloween, all the fun decorations!  I love the FUN stuff around Halloween...not just the candy!  Hahaha
 I used Happy Hauntings and cut Dracula at 3-3/4" as well as the layers... and then used Artiste for the coffin cut at 6"... I embossed the coffin with a spider web... I think it adds dimension!  They were easy to make, but I don't suggest doing them all at once!  I made the little Dracula's on one day, and the coffin's another day...
I plan to fill them with candy... but a Gift card tucked in there would fit nicely too.  Thanks for looking!!
