Halloween Here I Come!

The Scrapbook Retreat in Eden, Utah is 1 month away and I have almost finished up my ideas for kits/classes for the gals. This retreat I focused on Halloween and will have two Christmas items. Instead of just doing scrapbook type of things, I have chosen to do all home decor items. It has been a lot of fun and I hope a big success. There are so many different ways to use paper, vinyl, embellishments and the great Cricut. I purchased the Happy Hauntings cartridge and have loved using it.

The first project is a fun mirror I found at Ikea and I embellished it with vinyl for a really fun and different Halloween decoration. The second Halloween item I did was a 13 days of Halloween countdown. I saw this idea in Creating Keepsakes magazine last year and when I found the frame at Ikea I just had to do my own take on it. I took the mirror out of the frame and cut some foam board to fit and then covered it in Burlap (which is so in for home decor right now). I then made 13 different items for 13 days until Halloween. A few of them will fit candy and the rest all have a space (on the back of each item) to write down an activity for the day. I loved how it turned out and it was so fun figuring out different things and then coming up with the numbers.

If you have any questions about either project, email me at or post a comment!
