Spooky Spider

I've never been much of a home decorator...but I am trying a little harder these days. I love love love Halloween and have been seeing great ideas all over the place to add a little festivity to the walls and shelves of my house. Stampin' Up! has this great vinyl spider available right now until the 31st of October. I copied the idea straight from the promotional flyer. I think it turned out really cute! If you want one of your own, contact me to place an order!


Some other projects I have been working on the past couple of weeks...

A Halloween Banner using the sizzix big shot die cutting machine and exclusive pennant die.

Season of thanks shadow box
Another vinyl project...this one uses the season of thanks vinyl on the front of a shadow box I got at Michaels. The cool thing about this one is that it will be really easy to change the contents and backdrop to Christmas, Easter, etc.
See, I told you I was trying harder!
These last two projects I am offering in a class format in couple of weeks, so if you are interested in making them yourself, let me know.
