BOO Crackle Spiderweb Album

Happy October my friends, today I have a fun BOO Spiderweb Crackle Album!
For this mini I took the 4X4 Mini Tab Album from the October 2016 Creating Made Easy Kit, and I coated the cover page with StazOn ink (in case the crackle showed through)
and I used Texture Crackle Paste from my stash in copper to cover the front page.
While I set that aside to dry I covered each page with patterned paper from the October 2016 Creating Made Easy Kit.
After the Texture Paste completely dried I used black paint to "ink" the edges for a spookier feel.
After that I stamped spiderwebs on the cover, I actually used paint instead of ink for this one.
I put stickers from the kit on each page-prepping them for photos. 

And added the BOO from Corrugated Alphabet Stickers from my own stash. (We all have alphabets stickers!)
I threaded it with a thin black ribbons and added pics!
I love the end result and it wasn't hard to create.
Until my next project, have a beautifully crafty day my friends, 
Pinky- your average ordinary craft mom!

Halloween SHAKERS!!

Happy Monday friends, today I have my first couple of projects from the fabulous Creating Made Easy October 2016 Kit!

I decided to make these two Clear Scraps Shakers and share just how I created them!
For the Bat Shaker I used Gesso from my stash, spreading it onto the chipboard base and basically using it as adhesive to adhere the next layer. 

After thatI spread Gesso on the top layer piece, and set aside both pieces to dry. 

Then I took heavy duty foil and punches out stars and moons (it sharpens your punches as well) to create the "floating" pieces in the Shaker. 

Right before the base Gesso dried I put two foil moons as the "eyes" and pressed them in lightly. 
I waited for everything to dry added the foil stars and adhered the acrylic and top layer on, after gluing some ribbon in between the layers for a hanger. Before I added the acrylic I hand painted some spider webs onto the front using paint and a very small brush. 

Now for the Ghost Shaker I used Modeling paste from my stash with glitter (while wet) for the top layer. 

I adhered patterned paper from the kit to the base of the Ghost Shaker.

After everything dried, I adhered a ribbon in between the layers, added the sequins from the kit, then adhered the other layers. 

Such a fun idea, these Clear Scraps Shakers!
Happy Crafty Monday my friends,
