FCCB #183: Home Decor

Good morning everyone!

It's Monday, and time for another fun challenge over at Fantabulous Cricut!!! This week we'd like to see your fall/Halloween home decor projects!!  I read somewhere that Halloween is the most decorated for holiday after Christmas. At my house, I have a lot of fall decorations, but I don't have much that is very Halloween specific.  So, I decided to make a banner for my kitchen with some Halloween paper.  Here's what I came up with!!

I used the Pretty Pennants cartridge to create the base layers for my banner.  Since the banners don't come with holes that you can run ribbon or twine through, I glittered up some mini clothes pins with some Martha Stewart glitter and pinned them to a couple layers of black tulle.

I cut the letters from the Mickey Font cartridge using the "silhouette" font feature.  I also cut a couple of cute monsters using the Create a Critter 2 cartridge.

I had kind of a hard time getting this to hang over my blinds, I'm really picky about the tape NOT showing at all, and it was kind of hard to hide through the sheer tulle. I think I got it up there pretty good, and definitely well hidden though....we'll see how long it stays up!!  We'd love to have you share your creations with us this week!!  Thanks for stopping in!!!

Lake Trip Goody Buckets!!

Good morning everyone!

Every year, my family takes a vacation to the lake for a couple of days.  This year I've been planning ahead and thought it would be fun to make the kids some goody buckets with some small toys and stuff to play with when they're down there.

Here's two of the buckets I have done so far.  They're filled with sidewalk chalk, bubbles, "popper" firecrackers, and glow in the dark bouncy ball.  I loved adding the vinyl to the buckets, it was so easy!!

One other thing I'm going to stick in the buckets is a pair of PJ pants I've been working on......hoping to get those finished up this weekend!!  Thanks so much for stopping by!!

Birthday Boy T Shirt

Good morning everyone!

Well, it is official.  Elmo has completely taken over my scraproom it seems like!!! ;)  The project I have to share today is another birthday project I've made getting ready for my little guy's big day.

I made him an Elmo t shirt using some heat transfer t shirt vinyl I won from a give away my friend Angela had on her blog last month.  The t shirt vinyl was SO easy to work with.  I added a fun element to Elmo by using flocked t shirt vinyl for the red part of his body.  When you cut the vinyl, remember to use a new mat so it sticks down really well, or just use masking tape around the edges.  And be sure to use a "kiss cut" setting, the 3-3-3 rule. 

This picture makes the shirt look brown from the lighting, I was kind of in a hurry but the shirt is in fact black.  Now he'll have a little shirt that announces his special day and goes with our party theme.  Thanks so much for stopping in today!!
