Halloween Decor with Smoothfoam

Good morning everyone! Today I want to share to fun Halloween project with you using a Scrapbook Mount Page from Smoothfoam.

I painted the surface black and then inked the edges to make them darker.

I used my Cameo to cut the phrase and  added detailing with markers.

The bat's faces are done with paint pens so they have a little extra dimension. I folded the wings before I adhered them to the project.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Halloween Banner and More Deflecto Crafts Fun

Even though we don't have any kids at home this year, I just can't seem to stop making Halloween projects- strange I know. This morning I have a very quick and easy little Halloween Banner to share with you.

I used an American Crafts DIY Shop precut pennant banner for the base and cut some glitter cardstock to layer on top. The letters I have had forever- and I mean forever. They came in a class kit a zillion years ago and I have been needing to use them up on something! Ditto for the cute little wooden shapes- I can't even remember where I bought those I have had them SO long.  I used Metal "S" Hooks from Deflecto Crafts to attach the banner pieces together, using a pair of pliers to flatten the hooks a bit. 

 I used the amazingly fabulous Sign/Banner Hangers from Deflecto Crafts to add the banner to my mantle. These little things are seriously handy and I want to know where they have been all my life!

On another note, we have been doing a fair amount of remodeling in the house of late and I got something that will help me when I am out shopping for new decor.

 I used the Flexible Pouches and Metal Pear Clip Merchandiser, cut index cards to fit, then punched small squares from my paint samples for each room. On the back of the cards I have written my room dimensions and window sizes. This way when I am out shopping I can make a decision if I see something I like!

This past weekend I had a wonderful time teaching art workshops at Girl Scout Camp. I brought along some Deflecto products to make displaying my samples a bit easier.

 This super handy little VersaGrip Magnetic Sign Holder stuck right to the side of my supply bucket in the middle of the table so everyone could see what we were working on.

 I used a 4X6 Photo Frame to display the class name and attached a VersaGrip Double Sign Holder to the top to show off another sample.  I added my business cards next to them in the Grab A Card Holder.

Halloween Goodies using Deflecto

Howdy everyone! It is almost time for the mini spooks to come out, are you ready? 
I have some special people to give goodies to this year and wanted something fun to dress my trays up with this year. I had some fun new things from Deflecto Crafts to play with and inspiration struck!

First off, I never had a ay to get my recipe up off the counter where I don't splatter everything under the sun on to it- that drives me nuts. Because I am such a messy cook, I always copy the recipe from the book and use the photocopy to actually cook from. I am always looking for a way to hold it at eye level near my mixer.

I pulled out the VersaGrip Spring Sign Holder from Deflecto and clipped it right onto my mixer. Perfect for holding my recipe at eye level!!

Next up I needed something to decorate my popcorn boxes so I grabbed the Flexible Sign Danglers and wrapped them around my bags. I had something special I wanted to add to them- did you notice that the ends are self adhesive??

I bought these candy eyeballs because they are just the cutest things I have ever seen! 
They are perfect to add to the ends of my danglers to finish off the boxes.

 I always like to label the goodies on my trays so I added the Supergrip sign holders to the tray on the inside to hold my tags. These amazing little things are self adhesive as well and snugly hold a single sheet of paper. 

Here is a look at the tray all dolled up- super cute yes? 
I have a couple more to do and then I am off to deliver them in the morning. 

Be sure to stop by the Deflecto Craft Facebook Page to see all the fabulous 
things our Ambassador Team is doing.

The Deconstructed Layout #16- Tower of Terror

Hi everyone. I have another Deconstructed Layout to share with you today.

I am using some wonderful papers and supplies from

for my project. Be sure to check the store for the latest items and sales!

Today my project is about making your own background.
I have used a plain piece of solid cardstock and altered it using stencils, Gelatos®, PITT® Pastel Pencils, ArtGRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils, stamps,
spray inks, and molding paste.

Way back in the day, when I was a Band Mom, we went to Walt Disney World one year for competition. As a group of us were standing right at the front of the line to get on the Tower of Terror, who should walk right up to the front of the line but Steven Tyler of Aerosmith!
