Trick or Treaters... printable treats!!!

Halloween is almost here! I think the economy has hit us all and you know that our kids are going to come home with a pile of candy anyway ... so why go out and buy more. I am offering a printable treat that you can hand out at the door or just use as a party favor.

For the Boys
Click on the thumb to go to the larger printable version. This is going to be huge but just save it to your computer then in your printing program just use the "fit to page" option. Make sure you print them on card stock as standard paper is not heavy enough to make them work. I have also offered a black and white version so you can print it directly on orange card stock.

For the Girls
Once on the thumb for the larger printable, this is a postcard so you should be able to fit three per page. Make sure to print onto card stock as well.


Tattered Cuff Bracelet

It is that time of year that I am working on stuff but I can't show it because my projects are going to be Christmas gifts. So this is a sneak peek and some of what I have been making. This one went to the beautiful Lynn of Trash to Treasures for her Birthday. It is made of vintage fabric's, trims and buttons. I did use a few new beads and a new clasp but I don't think it took away from that vintage feel.

She has been through so much the past few weeks that I was just going to stop by for a minute and drop it off however she was up and around enough to answer the door and invited me in. Her hubby (bless him) made me the most wonderful mocha latte and I was lucky enough to be able to sit on her lovely patio with her and visit for a little. If everyone can send there prayers... or if you don't believe your positive energy her way as I know no one more deserving. We are just all so fortunate to have her still with us :)

Halloween Jester.... eeeeeek!

Here is my Jester for the current Gothic Arches challenge.

I used the last two free printable I posted for "Witches Dance" and a page from a Halloween child's story book. I also used one of the jester puppets that I offer at my little etsy store. The back has the cover from "Witches Dance" and a bit of torn sheet music.

Don't miss my last post for Blog Candy too! I am offering a memento's ink pad and a surprise package!

Dark .... 4 Blissful ATC 's

With the theme this month being "Dark" over at the Blissful ATC Swap. I went tip-toeing through the murkiest part of the dark woods.... and what did I find there! All things creepy, crawly and scary! There were spiders and bats and things that go bump in the night! I was afraid so I put what I found on these little ATC's and sent them off to my partner DeeDee so she could get the shivers too! I could not decide which one to send so I just had to send them both. I just did not think they should be separated! At least this way they could comfort each other when the lights went out at DeeDee's house :)) Do visit my partner DeeDee's blog because I think she took better pictures than I did

Now for a peek at the darkest thing I can think of .... The picture is scary enough so I hope I don't really see this guy !!! ..............besides my soul is already taken 0;-)

The layers are amazing! The bloody frame really seems to drip! and I love how she used torn cardboard for the background. Where the paper is missing gives so much depth and texture too! I just love this spooky treasure! He will be joining the Halloween section of my little ATC binder.... but wait.... that was not all! I also got the most stunning card! If you could only see it in real life! There is an amazing tea bag fold on the front of it and I could not capture the texture it has in the photo! Thank you so much DeeDee! I feel so honored to have met you and will look forward to the next time our names meet on the swapin list.

Oops... and Spooky Printables <};}

First for the OOPS!!! If your new to my blog, some how when I deleted my old blog a bunch of my photos disappeared. I think I have everything fixed now so be sure to use the quick links on the right hand sidebar to make sure you did not miss any of my fun printables. I posted some really good Halloween printables last year too :) I also had some great tutorials, patterns and projects I would hate for you to miss.

Now for the
Spooky Printables

I had wanted to make some projects with these before I posted them but life has gotten in the way once again and I have not been able to get to my artwork <}:/ So I am a sad little witch! However Halloween is seeking up on us faster than a puff of smoke and I don't want to hold up your artwork.
Be sure to click on the thumbs to go to the larger printables... enjoy!

Halloween Printables ... Silly Vintage Masks

There is just something special about having a vintage Halloween party! We like to have several leading up to the big day as well as the blow out on Halloween.... I would never want to dampen the excitement of the moment by constantly babbling on about being careful of the vintage papers... so I reproduce everything! My originals stay safe and the kids have a great time!

Staple some elastic to the sides and give one to each child! Be sure to click on the thumb above to go to the larger printable version... This will be really large but if you save it to your computer then find your options in your printing program choose "fit to page"

For more vintage Halloween printables head over to my little etsy store .... Enjoy!
