Wicked Witch Layout Sketch

Cut And Paste Sketches: Wicked ...

It's been a while since I shared a Cut And Paste Sketch with you, but today I have a totally wicked layout to share. I'm hoping this layout can be used to document your Halloween parties and the yummy spooky treats you bake for Halloween. There are so many great Halloween paper lines this year, so the hardest part of making this layout will be choosing which papers to use.


Halloween Wall Hanging

Halloween Wall Canvas

As most of you know I went on the Pazzles Cruise. I was so inspired by the canvas project that Klo taught us that I wanted to share it with all of you. So first of all I got a 12 x 12 canvas. In the class we used the Pazzles Stencil Material but I didn’t have any of that on hand, so I took a trip to the hardware store. I found one of those 11 x 11 no trespassing signs and figured "it's plastic, so why not give it a try". While I was there I also picked up some joint compound and some glow in the dark spray paint, but that’s for a later project.



Halloween Bat Banner

Boo! Halloween isn’t so big here in Australia, so creating a Halloween project came with both excitement and nerves! My banner project uses the Cut and Fold Flower Medallion from the Cut and Fold Medallions Collection in the Craft Room. They look great whenever used, and I hadn’t thought about using them for a banner before, but they’re perfect. The file I chose had flower cut-outs, so I changed them out for witch hats to match the Halloween theme. When using the Cut and Fold Medallions I prefer to use double sided paper so that when you fold back your cut outs, you have a contrasting paper showing. I used two sheets from Kaisercraft’s 13th Hour Collection - Evening and Dusk. 'Evening' has the orange background with the black spots (top layer). The 'Dusk' sheet I used for underneath instead of plain black cardstock with the black pattern showing.


Halloween Subway Art Canvas

This fun Halloween Canvas is a great addition to anyone's decorations. With the fun words and nearly see through spider web, it will make your friends take a second look. I have to admit, this is probably one of my favorite Halloween decorations I have ever made. I can see myself using it for years to come, because it just goes with any style of decor. After painting the canvas, I used Mod Podge on the canvas. I then used the gray vinyl from the Pazzles Neutral pack for the words. This keeps it subtle, but you can still see it through the frosted vinyl from the Pazzles Primary Pack, that is generally used to give the look of etched glass. It gives a wonderful effect for the spider and its web.


Halloween Lamp with Vinyl Silhouette

Halloween is right around the corner, and who doesn’t like to decorate for the holidays? This is a super easy project and it’s so much fun! When the lamp is off you can’t see the design. But when someone turns it on, POP, there it is! It is so fun to see their faces when they turn the lamp on! My son said, “It’s kinda like the Christmas tree. I just can’t stop looking at it.” I combined several Halloween files from the Craft Room Library to create this scene. Once I got my design the way I wanted it, I welded the elements together. (Make sure you reverse your design before cutting, especially if you are adding words.) I cut my design out using Pazzles Wall Vinyl in Cotton (White).



Halloween-Bat-Tube-Favors

Halloween Bat Tube Favors

Joanna here today, with a Halloween themed blog post. It’s that time of the year when we can go Batty at Halloween. It is such fun to make all those treat favors for the kids…….you can just let your imagination run! I have used an existing file in the Craft Room Library, using the Pillow Box Bat. I decided to tweak the file so that I could make a snug wrap around my plastic food safe tubes. I have included the file for you, so all the hard work has been done. If you use larger or smaller tubes you may need to resize the wrap.





Haunted Mini Album

A haunted mini album with 8 unique pages that layer together for a fun complete look when the album is closed. Several of the pages have special folds or pockets so you can really pack this album full of photos too! Detailed instructions included!


Poison Paper Apple Cutting Files

Poisoned Paper Apples

Take a bite if you dare! This fun project may be bad apples, but they're cute as can be. Put a spin on holiday treat bags and create these poisoned apples instead. Make sure you present them to someone special, and put them under your spell.


Make A Monster Project Pattern

Pazzles Project Pattern: Make A ...

Just in time to delight your Halloween goblins and ghouls, we have a new Project Pattern: Make A Monster. You'll find all the monster parts you need to create a dozen or more little monster characters. Once they are designed, cut them out or print and cut them to make layout and card embellishments. These would make some pretty cute Halloween party invitations and decorations as well. For an introduction to our Project Patterns concept and instructions on using the files, please visit last month's Project Pattern release.



Halloween Tags

Halloween Treat Tags and Labels

As each day of September passes, it brings us closer to Halloween and my favorite spooky holiday celebrations. Today I've created some haunted Halloween treat tags and terrifying Halloween labels. Attach them to a bag of goodies and give them away to your favorite goblin or ghost. If you want to avoid the tricks, you have to be ready with the treats. This project includes four tags for paper piecing and four additional tags/labels for print and cut. The print and cut tags and labels were created with that process in mind, so they are not suitable for cutting out each piece. The Inspiration Vue makes it easy to cut them out, but you could also print them out and hand cut them.


Halloween Neighbor Gift

Haunted House Treat Bag Set

Halloween is a fun holiday. It gives adults a chance to dress up and be silly, and gives kids a chance to eat lots of candy. There’s a lot of traditions that take place on this spooky night. My favorite as a kid was when my mom would fry up all the pumpkin seeds. She had the best recipe ever! It was as simple as frying the seeds in a stick of butter with salt until they’re golden brown. Yummy!! Then my friends and I would get ready for a night of trick or treating. We would go to the neighborhood across town where the houses were close together and you could show off your costume. It was the perfect time of year to scare all the little kids without getting in trouble! No matter what you find yourself doing this Hallows Eve, spread the fun to neighbors on your street and use this cute “Boo’ed” set to leave a splendid Halloween treat!


Halloween Eyeball Box

I got my eye on you! Are your Halloween treat boxes made yet? If not, this is a quick and easy treat box to make at the last minute. I only used two files to make it. The Round Box File and the Eyeball Card cutting file. I cut and assembled the round treat box as is. I enlarged the eye part of the eyeball card so the circle of the eyeball covered the top flap of the round box. Then I just glued the eye on the top of the box. Draw in the white reflection mark on the black circle part of the eyeball with a white gel pen.



Halloween Characters Treat Boxes

I’m always looking for some sort of treat box or gift to give out as party favors, or small gifts to my neighbors or the teachers and staff at my kid’s school. These treat boxes fit the bill perfectly! They were made using the Soda Can box file for the base, and the faces from the Witch, Frankenstein, Dracula, Lil Blue Monster, Mummy and the scar for Frankenstein from the Franky and Friends cutting file. All of these files can be found in the Craft room for reference.


Candy Corn Mini Album

This Candy Corn Mini Album has been on my mind ever since I did the Watermelon Mini Album.  I have always said the watermelon could easily become a  candy corn.  So, I took that album and made some adjustments to create this fun little album.  Whether you want to use this for Halloween photos or just some fun fall photos, this will be the perfect fit for you.


Halloween Parade Cutting Collection

The Halloween Parade Cutting Collection takes you back to the days of homegrown pumpkins, real scarecrows and DIY witch and ghost costumes. It's a perfect mix of vintage and cute and it will add character and charm to your Halloween projects.



Skull Family Treat Box Set

You can never have enough treat bags. It’s the best way to make those delicious treats you give away even sweeter. Create this cute little skull family treat box set and make your guests, friends and family shriek with delight. Use the sayings on the box, or create your own to fit your spooky Halloween theme. Either way, your guests are going to say Bone’ Appetite!

Use your Pazzles Creative Cutter for the tedious job of cutting out your patterned papers and save your time for the fun parts such as embellishing.

Halloween Costume Ribbons

Halloween Costume Party Ribbons

I've mentioned before that I host a Halloween party for all of my extended family every year and costumes are requested but not required. I love to see what people come up with when choosing their attire for the night, and there have been many clever ideas over the years. At the end of the night I select a few people for the costume awards and I like to have a big ribbon to pin on their chest. This year I made my awards bigger and better with layers and layers of Doodlebug Designs papers and the Patriotic Ribbon file.
