Decorating for Halloween

I was so excited yesterday to pull all my Fall decorations out and put them around the house.  My stamp room has looked like Fall for about a month, but it felt great to decorate the rest of the house.  I fought off putting Halloween decorations up.  I love decorating for Halloween because you can find some of the coolest decorations.  You can also find them right in your stamp room.  Isn't it great to use Stampin' Up! products to decorate your home?  This next piece I'm going to show you is something I made for Shelli.  Every year at Founders I love watching her stamp and it's always a Halloween theme.  I'm also impressed that she is so ahead of the game.  Me… NOT so much.  Anyways, I know how much she likes this holiday so I wanted to make her something that she could use in her home or in the office.  It's over the top with products so I will give you a product list tomorrow.  Truth be known I am too lazy to go get my catalog with exact names.  <ahhhh>

Using the dimensions I gave you yesterday I made the banner with Naturals Ivory cardstock.  This is a great cardstock to use for these types of projects because the cardstock is heavy.  <I SO LOVE OUR CARDSTOCK!> I used lots of DSP, Stamps, our Serif Alphabet Die Cuts with my Big Shot.  I wanted to keep the project fairly small so I just made a "Boo Banner".  The entire thing from start to finish probably took me an hour.  My favorite product on this banner was the use of our new baubles.  They are so vintage FUN!  I love them.  I just hung them from the safety pins from our Vintage Trinkets.  Easy enough.  I think I will have to make my own Boo Banner now. 

Today I spent all day with my prince!  The past two weeks we haven't seen much of each other since one of us has been out of town.  It was so nice to spend the entire day with him.  We were able to get lots accomplished around the house and I am starting to feel like this house is coming together. We still have lots to do but it's coming together. 

I'm hoping tomorrow brings me a moment to shoot the ribbon video.  I know you are patiently waiting…. It's that other job I have that's been keeping me busy…MOTHERHOOD! Jeesh!

I hope your weekend is filled with Fall Fun!  There is so much to do here this weekend and not enough time for me to get it all in.

  1. I've been meaning to ask for awhile now how you do your ribbon so bunchy and so pretty…maybe that is what the ribbon video is going to be about?! 🙂 I love it and think the dimension it adds to your artwork is wonderful!

  2. Love, love LOVE your banners…both of them!  They're gorgeous and I also love how you've added the baubles to dress them up…I'm gonna have to get more of them!  Thanks for being such an inspiration.  😉

  3. This is a wonderful banner. I'm sure Shelli loved it! With everything I want to do before Halloween I don't think I'll be able to try this project this year maybe I can do it next year. Thanks so much for the idea.
