Because having a one month old is not conducive to crafting...

...I made this ahead of time last month. Now I just have to capture her in a cute costume/headband and add the photo of her first halloween!

 

Hope you have a FUN Halloween!!!

This is the Eek-a-Boo stack and the Premium Papers out at Joann stores. The spiders are from the sequins pack also at Joann.

Trick or Treat!

Hello and welcome to the DCWV Too Cute To Spook Halloween Hop!!

TODAY the current DCWV Design Team is bringing you a group of projects that were made using the newest, cutest DCWV Halloween stack, Eek-a-Boo! Halloween is quickly approaching and it's time to turn your spooky crafting up to high gear! 

I really had to get a head start because I have to mail some spooky treats for my nephew.

My little nephew moved about 8 hours away and we see him about twice a year. We used to see him about twice a month before. It's a big difference and we've taken to sending him good old snail mail to surprise him once in a while. This year, we're sending him a little Halloween box.

I'm not in favor of letting kids eat a ton of candy in one sitting. Neither is my sister in law. So what will I include in his Halloween box? Here's some healthier and fun ideas for Halloween treats:
-Super hero/character band aids
-Stickers
-'Growing' toys (grow in water)
-Multi colored or shaped crayons
-Glow in the dark stars 
-Glow sticks
I always look in the dollar section at target and party city.
I'll also include some lollipops flavored with real fruit juice and some real fruit leather...and maybe some mini m&m's ;)




 

I also made another box for my friend. We both like chocolate, candy and sugar. I know she'll appreciate some fancy chocolates. 



I used the 2 biggest boxes from the DCWV nested box set at Joann. 


The potion jars, words and webs are hand cut from the Eek-a-Boo stack. 
The frames and sequins are from the Halloween embellishment sets. 

Thank you for joining us on this 'spooky' blog hop! Remember to leave a comment for a chance to win some yummy paper!

Here's the hop list:

Are you making something crafty for Halloween? I'd love to see. Leave me a link!

Halloween Decor

Hello! I usually take out my Halloween decorations in the beginning of October. 
How about you? Do you decorate? 

 

I used a frame from the dollar store for this project. The background is a piece from the premium paper collections out at Joann. I love those papers. they are so beautiful! 
I know they're not inexpensive, but don't forget to use your 50% off coupon when you shop ;) 

I also used the skulls from the home decor line. I added a little bow and star to one, an eye patch to another and a golden star to a third skull. I used spiders from the Halloween sequin pack and some twine from the die cut pack throughout the frame. The little mirror star is from the mirror sticker line also at Joann.




 

Can you believe October is here?!
