Thursday's Throwback project: Happy Halloween

Hi friends!  Sandy here for ScrapBook Blessings Club to share with you a favorite SBC Throwback Thursday project...

Here are some of the projects I did for Halloween in past years. I was addicted to my Cricut at the time, lol...

The first one is: The gift bag was made using the cut from Accent Essentials Cartridge and end caps feature for the handle from Plantin SchoolBook cartridge.
************************************************

The banners were made using the Plantin SchoolBook cartridge, and ribbon. I punched two holes in each card and threaded the ribbon through the back. The pumpkins are 5 ovals cut to 3" and layered over lapping. I drew the faces on with a black sharpie marker.
*************************************************
I just had to show these pumpkins off. I made these for my hubby when we were dating for his apartment. I bought the ceramic from the local ceramic shop. And using my scrap book chalks, I "colored" the piece and then used a couple coats of craft sealant to give it a nice gloss. Very easy to do!
************************************************

I made this door banner for a friend who loooves Halloween. This was very easy to make. I used three different kinds of paper. The first layer (brown outline) I cut at 3.75", second layer at 3.50". The third layer was a little bit of cheating. I had a paper that had the Halloween words on it and all I did was cut out the words and glue them on. The pumpkins are made with using the ovals again. 


I was very limited because all I had were the Plantin and Accent cartridges so I used the lower case o from the Plantin and cut it in half for the stem.

Ahh, the good old days! Now I have over 70 cartridges and I still use these two, lol.

0
Hi everyone, Sandy here for our new Monday posts. 

We will be featuring cards from the SBC mini card kits. 

This is one of the cards that I did was using a simple card design for a quick card to do on the fly. A pennant card is one of the easiest especially when you use a cute pre-made die like the ones in the kit.
MY CARD TIP: Keep a small note book or file with your favorite card designs to pick from when you sit down to create your cards.

******************************************************************
Stop by the first of every month for a mini blog hop featuring the newest mini card kit, one person who comments will win their own card kit.
October's card kit winner is YOLIE.


It is perfect for all levels of scrapbookers! So whether you are a newbie or an experience scrapper, these kits has everything you'll need to create fast and easy projects. All you need to do is get out your scissors, paper trimmer and adhesive.

Sandy- A Working Moms Joy

My tip: place a strip of paper on the inside of the foam tape to stop your beads from sticking to it.

Brenda - Disney Girl
My Tip:  When cutting foam core always use a fresh blade. It makes it so much easier.

Jolly Santa Candle saying HoHoHo

0

Hi Carolyn here with a Christmas candle I created a year or so ago using a Ho Ho Ho file with Santa.


TIP:  take your time with the heat gun on this project - don't want to melt the wax candle too much. And makes a neat little decoration at Christmas time or for a gift.

A couple years ago, really can't remember when I created this for a design team project but I had viewed a youtube video on creating a candle with tissue paper.  I used white tissue and printed Santa and title and than got out the heat gun and applied the tissue paper to a white candle that I purchased at Wal-mart.  And wrapped a ribbon around the bottom of candle, and placed on a little clear plate for display at Christmas time.

Here is a video tutorial by Heidi Swapp showing the techniques for this project...


I hope your enjoyed today's project too. If you have a questions or suggestions, please leave it in the comments. Also, you can join up to our Facebook group: Scrapbook Blessings Club for more fun, games, inspiration, tips and techniques. Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day!

Friday Cards ~ Diva Doll Tutorial

0
Hello Friends,

Annette here for the Scrapbook Blessings Club and I am featuring here today a wonderful creation which I found recently in the Cardmaking Magazine.
There are full instructions on how to make this Diva Doll but I have made mine with a twist.
This is the Doll which was featured by the Magazine and created by master sculptor Greg Sukendro :-
  • This is my interpretation where I utilized Greg Sukendro's Honeycomb Pattern plus the body pattern (but I have made some slight amendments to the patterns to suit my own Diva Doll):-

  • As you can see I have created my Diva Doll with a Sherri Ann Baldy's My Besties Head only. The first Diva is Wedding Doll My Besties and the second Doll is Besties Digi Image No. IMG031
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  • (Picture No. 1) ~ So to create I firstly choose my Image which I would like to use the Head only I then cut My Besties head choice out very neatly.
  • (Picture No. 2) ~ Using my Copic Markers I color in the Face and Hair and at the same time I use my Body Template and cut out the upper body and I just color the area of the skin which will be seen on the Diva only, I do not color the areas which are hidden
  •  (Picture No. 3) ~ My next step is to choose my colors for the Honeycomb ~ I am using 80gsm Dark Aqua Blue and 80gsm Light Aqua Blue
  •  (Picture No. 4) ~ Using the lower large Skirt Pattern I cut out 18 Skirt Panels in the dark Aqua all right side up and I then mark the pattern glue lines all right side up
  • (Picture No. 5 & 6) ~ I then cut 17 Light Aqua lower Skirt Panels and mark the Glue Lines ~ I found it easier to pop a large paper clip on the skirt panels to keep them aligned and when I mark the top panel with a pencil the indentation mark will show up on the one underneath that way you have your guide, most important is not to mix up the two different pattern lines, only work on one skirt panel at a time as you will see the Dark Aqua Glue Lines are in a different position to the Glue Lines on the Light Aqua Pattern 
  • (Picture No. 7) ~ Before gluing the skirts panels, I have used my Mixed Media light brown ink pad to the edges of the front of the skirt ~ I found it easier to do this prior to gluing
  • (Picture No. 8) ~ Using a good quality Blue Glue I then run the glue pen along the marked lines on the Dark Aqua Skirt Panels, then I place the Light Blue Aqua Skirt panel on top keeping them all face side up (make sure you place these very carefully not to move or smudge the glue, this is very important for your end results when opening the Honeycomb up) ~ once you have your next panel on, glue the glue lines and keep rotating alternatively each colour gluing until you get to the last panel ~ leave the skirt now for the glue to completely dry
  • (Picture No. 9) ~ Repeat number 8 for the upper skirt panels
  • (Picture No. 10) ~ Cut out the Skirt on a good strong quality paper. I have used 220gsm Quill Stationery Paper to support my Honeycomb. I have also cut out from the 220gsm an additional body tapering it in so it cannot be seen behind the upper body which I have colored with my Copics. I join them all together with strong sticky tape plus I also use a Paddle Pop Stick for extra support so the Doll does not bend over and it keeps my doll upright and straight.
  • (Picture No. 11) ~ I then use double sided adhesive tape taping both outside panels of the Skirt plus I place double sided adhesive tape to the skirt panel also. 
  • (Picture No. 12) ~ I then position the skirt panels in the centre of support template and fold one side out and stick it down and then repeat with the other side.  At this point it is a good idea to attach your upper body and Corset before attaching the upper body Honeycomb as the body and Corset will sit under the Honeycomb and will give a much better finish. Once you have attached the upper body and the upper Skirt Honeycombe you can attach the head and hat and decorate to your own choice adding Ribbons/Flowers etc.  




Thank you for visiting my Diva Doll Tutorial today and I hope you have enjoyed this project.
