Kitty Witch Lantern or Candy Dish

Happy Halloween to you all... I wanted to share one more Spooky cute project with you.

This is just like my snowman lanterns with a different theme lol.

The Hat is from SVG CUTS that I added the tulle and ribbon slide to accent... and that beautiful Flower is from Cricut Bloom cart... I used parts of Flower 9 and 10 and added a fun cloth brad that was black and white but I colored to purple with a sharpie :) Oh and the ears are added to the hat as well ... the eyes are vinyl, I had cut all of the face pieces with vinyl but it would not lay right on the curved dish so I switched gears and did it in cardstock for the white cheeks part and adhered the vinyl nose and tongue to it and popped up the whole thing.  I added some tulle as a cape and a ribbon to tie it with.

I wish I could find one of my battery lights to show it lit up :(  I have looked everywhere!  Well apparently not everywhere... lol... everywhere except where I hid them from myself... lmbo!!!

I am entering into these fun Challenges:
Fantabulous Cricut Challenge - #243 Halloween ( I used Bloom Cartridge for flower) 11/2
Die Cuttin' Diva's - Happy Halloween 11/3
Hiding in My Craft Room - Any Holiday 11/1
Little Scrap pieces - Show it Off Saturday Linky party 11/1

Thanks so much for stopping by to see my project, I would love for you to leave me a comment about it.

Have a Happy and safe Halloween!  and as always... Happy Crafting!  Eva Scraps

Deputy Snowman Card

I just recently received the Cutie Patootie Stamp set from Peachy keen Stamps and knew I had to make a Christmas card with him as soon as I saw him!


So as I said the little deputy snowman is from Peachy Keen Stamps I also added the lasso and star badge from Cricut Old West Cart... The lasso and rope are two separate cuts plus I cut a second lasso to clip and fit it all together. I ran both of the layers of the Star/Badge through a snowflake embossing folder to make it a Badge fit for this snowman tee hee and pop dotted up the top of the star/Badge! I used my gel pens and watercolor pencils and water brush to color him in and I used some fabulous handmade paper from my stash that I only ever dig out for very special cards :) I am such a paper hoarder lol!

For the inside I added a layer of white paper that I inked up edges with Tim Holts Walnut stain Distress ink.  I added a strip of the same Handmade paper from the front and added a Merry Christmas stamp in Brown ink and a cute little Christmas tree down in the corner lightly inked in green.

I am entering into these fun challenges:
Hiding in My Craft Room - #171 Any Holiday 10/31





Thanks for stopping by today, I hope you have time to leave me a comment :)

Disney Blog Hop for Rett Syndrome Awareness

 
 
Happy Saturday
and 
Welcome to this year's Blog Hop for...
 
Rett Syndrome Awareness
 
In this hop we will be showing you many Disney themed projects while sharing with you about
Rett Syndrome.
If you have just stopped by my blog to visit with me, thank you and welcome, but please start at the beginning of the hop with our
Hostess, Robin from
Create-A-Latte.
We would not want you to miss any of these wonderful projects.

So, grab yourself a Latte', sit back and hop along with us as we share our projects with you.
 
 October is Rett Syndrome Awareness Month, so I wanted to help get the word out and what better way to do that than with a blog hop.
  
Rett Syndrome strikes without warning. A girl with Rett Syndrome usually starts out as a happy and healthy baby. Then something goes terribly wrong. She loses the ability to speak, she can't use her hands to play with toys, or to even feed herself, and she may lose the ability to walk. 
Despite their physical disabilities, girls with Rett Syndrome are believed to be functioning mentally at a much higher level than previously thought.   
Rett Syndrome is caused by a mutation of the MECP2  gene on the X chromosome.  
Rett Syndrome is found in all racial and ethnic groups throughout the world, and in every socioeconomic class.  
Rett  Syndrome affects in 15,000 female births.  

*Symptoms of Rett Syndrome...

Rett Syndrome is a genetic neurological disorder that affects girls between 6 and 18 months of age. This regressive disease leads to lifelong handicaps, including loss of speech and voluntary muscle control, and is often misdiagnosed as Cerebral Palsy or Autism. Symptoms range from mild to severe, and almost always include...
*Developmental Regression or Plateau
*Near constant hand clasping or wringing
*Severe communication impairment
*Breathing problems
*Digestive issues
*Floppy arms and legs
*If able to walk, then with a shaky, unsteady gait, or toe-walking. But most do end up using a wheelchair for the most part.
*Scoliosis
*Seizures
*Slowing head growth
*Abnormal sleep patterns
*Transient loss of social engagement
*Poor circulation that can lead to cold and bluish arms and legs
*Anxiety
  
Many individuals with Rett Syndrome live well into adulthood, although there are some that do not get that chance and end up losing their battle to Rett Syndrome at a very early age.
Most people including Doctors are not aware of Rett Syndrome, so, please help me get the word out about Rett Syndrome and hopefully the more that know the faster we can help in finding a cure.

Without further ado...Our Disney Projects.

For My Project I have created a fun Disney themed Frame with Ariel and Sebastian from My Little Mermaid.  Love that Movie!!!  Now what is housed inside the frame is a fun Egg Shell Art I created with my Grand Daughter earlier this year.
 
 
Okay where to start :)  I guess the inside:  Flounder was a coloring book page free printable from Disney.  I printed out colored in his eyes and mouth only... then my Grand Daughter Ashlyn and I took several cracked in half egg shells cleaned and had a blast coloring the egg shells in dye, just like Easter eggs only the broken in half shells only.  We did Yellow, a light blue and a dark blue.  We let them dry over night then put them in baggies and crushed the shells into crumbles.  Then we used a paint brush and brushed the certain parts with glue and sprinkled the correct colors into place. 
Close up of the egg shells on Flounder
 This was a great project that I did with my own Daughter when she was little... in fact it was flounder then too but from one of her coloring books I think.  She is trying to find hers so we can make a matching frame to put next to this one :)
For all of the character cuts and flowers I used the Cricut - Dreams Come True Cartridge
 
I think I cut Ariel at 10 1/2" I added some Purple Glitter to her Top and Bright Green Glitter to her Tail Fin... I also embossed her Tail with Cuttlebug Simply Charmed set - Squares.
Sebastian the Crab I cut at 6 3/4
 
The Sea Floral corner I cut at 5 3/4" I added drops of tulip translucent fabric paint in flower centers and sprinkled with fine yellow glitter... inside the frame I added a seaweed cut at 3" and its corresponding flowers, some in pink and some yellow.  for the centers I added either pink or yellow dabs.
 I created this flower cluster for the top myself by welding together and creating a couple of shadow layers for the pretty pink flowers to go on... I added some pretty yellow bling to the centers.  Above that I created a tag to hang with this frame.  The Tag and Layer were cut from Cricut Artiste at 3 1/2".  Again I used Dreams Come True Cartridge  For flounder cut at 2" the top drawing layer and the lettering I used my cricut gel pens for.  I colored in his mouth and eyes by hand with gel pens.
the tag says that Ashlyn and I created this one and hopefully I can get the one from my Daughter from like 1994 if she can find it and we can frame it to hang next to this one with a tag labeling ours :)
 
Thanks for stopping by to see my creation, Please leave me some bloggy love, I enjoy reading each of your comments... Enjoy the rest of the hop!!!

"Eye-Candy" Treat Box


 
Side 1

Side 2

I really had fun with this project :)  Most everything here is from SVG Cuts Files accept for the awesome "Here's a Little Eye~Candy" stamp is from Craftin Desert Divas that I heat embossed in white.  I also used fun Googly eyes on the monster and added a stick to the Chalkboard to make it a sign.  I did the Monster on front and back with a little switch up with the colors and made it cool to see it from either side!  Also I added a bottom to the box I cut myself so it could hold candy and a Bamboo stick painted black to hold the monster's and filled the treat box with some yummy "Eye-Candy" Gummies.  This would make a perfect co-worker gift for their desk!  Or great to sit out as your own Halloween Décor filled with Treats.

If you don't know what a bow Board is, let me enlighten you a little :)  The ribbons coming down the board are for clipping the hair bow clips to keep them all tidy and in one place.  I added loops to the bottom to hang headbands on.  Here are a couple of examples:


I wanted a way to have a fun theme or character added So my creative mind came up with a way to also incorporate it all.  A fun theme to go with the bow holder board.  I am so happy that I came up with this idea as it has made a lot of little girls happy to get these creations of mine.  I have made so many different themes and designs.  You can check them out on FB HERE if you would like.  But today we are concentrating on this lovely bow board in a fun Alice in Wonderland Theme... I have one more photo to share with you showing a close-up of the added name in flower die cuts and the beautiful fabric I used.  For this one I went with a Hot Pink fabric, then I decided to add a fun purple mesh layer covered in Shiny Holographic purple stars over the pink.

I really love how this one turned out.  Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed my project and leave me some bloggy love with your comments.

If you are looking for Fall is in the Air Blog Hop Click Here - Or Please scroll down to the next post... Thank You :)

Hello my Crafty Friends.  Are any of you Building a 3-D Haunted House this year for Halloween Décor?  or maybe once you check out our group you will be inspired to build one.  I just wanted to invite you all to come build and post your 3-D Haunted House in our Facebook Challenge.  But we are also a sharing site of any Halloween or Fall related projects so come join in!!!

Join us here on Facebook
Halloween /Fall Group - https://www.facebook.com/groups/703866416342208/
Christmas/Winter Group - https://www.facebook.com/groups/708144405932204/


Me (Eva Scraps) and my Crafty friend Sarah Burton started a FB Group last Month just for that purpose!!!  Our little crafty group of Peeps have grown to 70 members already and continue to grow everyday.  When we started we wanted to help and encourage each other with the 3-D Haunted House Build and have grown into a fun crafty sharing place of Halloween and Fall Projects!!!

Would you like to create the 3-D Haunted House from maybe Cricut Happy Hauntings Cartridge?   Or you could use any svg file of a 3-D Haunted House.  I know SVG CUTS has a couple to choose from. 
Here is one I made of theirs from the Elmhurst Hollow kit.

I was very intimidated before I started this one thinking it was going to be so hard, but it was actually quite easy and I really had a good time with it.  Next on my to do list is the Happy Hauntings Haunted House.  I hope to get going on it this week... I have procrastinated this build for years.

 Anyway, we would love for you to come join us on this challenge... There will be some fun Halloween and Fall Die cuts sent to one randomly drawn winner (US shipping only) from both Sarah and I following the challenge which ends on October 15th.  I will also be putting together a fun slideshow video of all entries, so take good photos of your house. It must be a 3-D build... no cards or layouts for this one... but we do encourage you to share any of your fun Halloween or Fall related projects in our group too... including cards and layouts.

Here are some great tutorial videos I found to help with the Haunted House Builds:

Fall is in the Air Blog Hop

 

 
 
Happy Saturday
and
Welcome to this months Blog Hop
with
The Creating Blog Hops Cafe'
 
This month we have made some wonderful Fall projects to share with you. If you have just stopped by to visit with me, thank you and welcome, but please start at the beginning of the hop with our Hostess, Robin Lane with
 Create-A-LatteWe would not want you to miss any of these wonderful projects.
 
 
So, grab yourself a Latte', sit back and hop along with us as we share our projects with you.

For My Fall Project today I decided to make 3 Fall cards.  All of them have different elements from the Cricut Cartridge Thanksgiving for the main focal.  Each Card is size 5" X 6 1/2"   and all edges have been inked with Tim Holtz Walnut stain ink.


Starting with this Fall Leaf Card, I used a muted yellow pattern paper  of fall leaves for the background layer from my stash.  The second layer of Green Card stock embossed with CB 5X7 Flowers folder, cut at 2" X 6 1/2", tucked behind is a Border in Brown from the Spellbinders Moroccan Accents Shapeabilities die set.  atop of the green layer I have added a beautiful scroll Leaf for the focal from Cricut Thanksgiving cart... such an easy piece to cut and assemble consisting of only 2 layers but such a striking focal it becomes.  That one is cut at 5.5 wide, bottom layer brown and top leaf a deep red.  at the bottom of the card I used my corner rounder and added several leaf rub-ons and a couple of pine cone rub-ons.  I used an un-mounted rubber stamp for the Count your blessings sentiment, I think it came from a Card maker of the month kit.


This Pumpkin card is very similar with a deep orange topped with flocked wheat pattern layer, same Moroccan border, Pinecones are from a die cut sheet, Pumpkin Scroll focal is again from Cricut Thanksgiving cart and the sentiment is a rub-on atop of a spellbinders Fancy Tag 3. 


This Acorn card is again very similar with a green flower flocked background pattern paper and an Orange & Gold 2" foil paper layer, same Moroccan border at top, leaves at bottom are from a die cut sheet, Acorn Scroll focal is again from Cricut Thanksgiving cart and the sentiment Thankful is a rub-on atop of a frame die cut from my stash. 

 
This month we have a wonderful Sponsor, Lucy Kelleher with Close To My Heart, and she has a fantastic giveaway to share with you today. Lucy is giving away a $10 Gift Certificate to her store.
