13 Days Of Halloween - Day 9 - Vintage Vignette Boxes!

Hello! Well, I'm back today with Day 9 of the 13 Days Of Halloween Series on YouTube! As we creep closer to the big day I'm sharing some home decor ideas using the Tim Holtz Vignette Boxes and Toppers in combination with the Simple Stories Simply Vintage Halloween collection. I love the way these products mix and match to give just the right vintage, spooky feel!

I've been wanting to use these cute box toppers for a while, and I'm so glad I did! It's so easy to put your own spin on decorating these - adding as much or as little extras as you like.

I even grabbed a little Tim Holtz wood slice for my pumpkin to sit on. I found that hot glue made it easier to attach the wood as well as the box toppers to the boxes. I added a bit of stenciling to the paper in the background and even some sparkly Moonstone Tonic paste, which I am loving!!

Here's a look at the video where you can see just how these cute boxes come together. If you missed any of the previous days in the series you can find the full playlist HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you're having a great fall, and if you celebrate Halloween, I hope you're having as much fun with this series as I am!!

13 Days Of Halloween - Day 7 - Foiled Cricut Tags!

Hello! Well, I must admit it doesn't feel much like Halloween anymore - we just got another snowstorm and it feels more like Christmas! Hopefully it will be much nicer when October 31st comes around though. We always have to take into account whether the girls will have to wear winter gear under their costumes, and I think this year's outfits will be perfect for that! (scroll down to see what they'll be wearing) Today, for the 13 Days Of Halloween Series on YouTube I made some fun Halloween Tags with my Cricut Maker and used the We R Memory Keepers Foil Quill to add a foiled sentiment to the back. 

I used both gold foil and the Foil Quill along with a silver Cricut gel pen to add my sentiment to the back side of the tags. I chose to colour in one with gel pen and leave the other as an outline.

Distress Oxide Inks add some shading and highlights to the cardstock edges. The Tim Holtz Chit Chat Occasions stickers add spooky wishes to the front.

I decorated the front of the tags with Studio Katia and Buttons Galore and More sequins and gems for a bit of bling, and then added a coordinating piece of baker's twine.

I even spritzed the pumpkin and owl with sparkly Dylusions Mica Sprays for some extra Halloween shine!

Here's a look at the video where you can check out exactly how I made these cute tags!

I let my girls do the decorating this year and this is how our mantel looks. I think they did a great job! How many projects can you spot from previous years?!! 

And here's a look at the costumes they chose this year. I'm not sure if we were hungry when we went shopping or what, lol... These will work at a Halloween Party inside or over winter jackets outdoors, so that's a win-win!

Thanks so much for stopping by! You can find these Foiled Halloween Tags in Cricut Design Space if you'd like to make them yourself. Be sure to check out Day 7 of the 13 Days Of Halloween, and have a wonderful week!
