Graphic 45 paper pumpkin

I had so much fun making this little pumpkin, I don't know why I have not played with this idea before, its so quick and easy and has so many ways you can use it.

  For my pumpkin I used the wonderful Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells paper collection available from The Fruit Pixie but you could make beautiful autumn pumpkins decorated with acorns and leaves too.




If you would like full instructions on how to make this little pumpkin then visit the Fruit Pixie blog - http://thefruitpixie.blogspot.co.uk/

All the papers and many other wonderful treats are available from The Fruit Pixie online shop - http://www.thefruitpixie.co.uk/

Graphic 45 witchy art doll

Sorry I have not posted for a bit but I have been battling with horrible migraines and the worst thing I can do after one is look at a computer screen!   But I am back on top now and have been having fun making my Halloween Witch doll using the Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells paper collection from The Fruit Pixie.




She worked out a little larger then I was planning but I am so pleased with her.


Her head is one from my digital collection and I made her body from re-cycled box card.


I gave her a spell book



A broom from twigs from the garden



Some witchy potions



and of course every witch has to have a black cat!!

Now she is all ready for Halloween!!

For more details of how I made her visit the Fruit Pixie blog -  http://thefruitpixie.blogspot.co.uk/

Autumn Digi papers

Kyrsty Scrapbook Designs has released a beautiful Autumn flavour digital paper kit. Dont let the fact that its digital put you off, I just print them out onto printable cardstock and then you can craft as normal. Its cheaper and takes up a lot less room, plus if you need that 2 cm strip more , you just print it out , so you never run out! Why not give it a try?


For my deign team project I made this Autumn box, all cut from 2 of the lovely papers in the kit

Mischief Circus digi kit



As part of the big collaboration kit to celebrate Deviant Scrap becoming Mischief Circus Kyrsty Scrap Designs has brought out a scary Circus digital kit

Halloween @ Mischief Circus

It is quite a spooky kit, great fun for this time of year!

As soon as I got the kit I knew I had to build my own spooky circus!


Made using a hexagonal box made on my cricut Expression 2 using some of the backing papers. The tent sides are held up using coffee stirrers, tent canvas is another backing paper from the kit. All the stars of the show are part of the kit too, shame it didn't make the design team examples.



These two are my digital pages. This kit will be great which ever way you like to craft.


You can find this kit here on the new Mischief Circus - http://www.mischiefcircus.com/shop/product.php?productid=22234&cat=&page=

Feather and bird box

I think the Spellbinders Bird on a wire die is fast becoming my favourite die at the moment. I have made this little box for the Fruit Pixie using Cordinations cardstock embossed using the Doodle Damask stencil and then decorated with the Spellbinders Bird on a wire and Feather in the wind.




All the products are available from The Fruit Pixie online shop -http://www.thefruitpixie.co.uk/
Full details of the box are here on The Fruit Pixie blog - http://thefruitpixie.blogspot.co.uk/

Decorations for Owl class

My sister is a teaching assistant in the infant school where we both went to school. They give animal names to their classes and for the past couple of years she has been working in Owl class. I have made some decorations over the past couple of years but this year she needed a new welcome sign for the door, so here is what I made for them.


The background I sprayed with home made acrylic spray paint and then the rest was cut on my Cricut Expression 2


I also made them an owl shaped blackboard using box card and blackboard vinyl

I hope Owl class liked them!
