Mr. and Mrs. Frankenstein. I used Kreaxions circle cutter to make the eyes and the nose and punch #903 for the border around the top. I used a marker to draw on the mouth and scars. Now to fill them with goodies.

Check out the rest of the DT creations on the Just Imagine Crafts site.

Holiday Pinterest Party

It's almost November and the holidays are right around the corner! Are you
all ready?

Kitchen Keepsake will be hosting a Holiday Pinterest Party from November
1st - December 24th and YOU are invited!!

All projects are due by midnight December 24th. All you have to do is
start a thread with your (P)interest name and post photos/links of the
holiday project that (P)inspired you and photos of your completed holiday
projects. It can be any holiday project, but each

(P)inspiration only counts once. In other words, if you make a cute little
paper clip bookmark as a stocking stuffer, making 100 of them will not
count 100 times. LOL

The person who completes the most projects will receive a huge box of
scrappy fun!

The Kitchen is here to help with some holiday inspiration, whether it's
gifts or recipes! Come join in the fun and see what everyone is
(P)interested in!

See you in the Kitchen and can't wait to see what you create.

House Christmas card

The challenge this week at Christmas card challenge blog was anything goes. So I made this house and wanted it to look like a winter scene. I used Kreaxions punches, Martha Stewart punch for the branches and a sizzix die for the fence, the sled was a stamp and then I cut it out.

Thanks for looking.

New Christmas card

The challenge this week at Christmas card challenge blog was to use an image of a snow globe as inspiration. I stamped the snow globe image and then cut out the inside circle of the snow globe and stippled the center and then glued it back down. Fun challenge.

How low can you go

These photos were taken several years ago at Trunk or Treat. This is for a challenge at Turtle Soup and for the challenge to use buttons at Scrappy Moms Stamps blog. My buttons are the 3 leaves at the top. It was nice to be able to use these buttons as they have been in my stash for a long time.

Sweet Little Girl

We took our grandchildren to Fort Mackinac a couple years back and the youngest one put on one of the soldier coats. I used an overlay that I have had for years, use a die for the doily and made the flowers from some scraps I had laying around.

This layout is for a challenge at Turtle Soup and for Party Time Tuesdays. Thanks for looking.

Spec the horse

My turn at Just Imagine Crafts. Today I picked a layout as my example for you. I used the circle cutter stretched as far out as it would go and cut out a circle and then cut another circle out of the center of that. I used the punch 309 on the inside of the circle with the 6.8 Kreaxions Positioning Parts for Corner Punch. I added twine around the circle for a rustic feel as well as putting burgandy paper behind to make the flowers pop out. I made the button flowers and added a few other flowers for fill in. I used a popsicle stick at the top and distressed it to make it look rustic.

Reveal day Just Imagine Crafts

For this reveal I am going to share a little Halloween bag with you. I started with a paper bag and then cut it in half. I used the 903 punch for the border around the top of the bag. I used the 309 punch and circle cutter to make the flowers on the front of the bag. I used the leaves that were on the 309 punch and glued them together to make the black flowers and then I cut up on the circles to make them look a little more leafy. Some black netting was added along with a lavender bow with of course a bat and spider to add to the Halloween theme. Fill this with candy and give it to someone special.

Happy October 1

New challenges are up at Kitchen Keepsake and these are my two.

For the card challenge, pretty easy, use some stitching, whether it is by hand or machine. Here is my card I made.

For the recipe challenge, you just need to use some staples on the page. Here is my page for one of the kids recipe books.

I hope you come over and check out some of the other challenges.
