I am so excited about what I am going to share tonight. This may not get your silly's going, but I have been giddy ALL day! My bestie came over today so I was giddy to stamp with her. We had a plan and we succeeded in making it happen. We just wanted to make some beautiful Halloween decorations to put on our Halloween Tree. Let me share!
Here is my tree:
Here are the Halloween Cone Decorations that we made.
Aren't these the cutest things? Seriously, so fun to make. Remember that ribbon tutorial I said I would show you…. tonight I have a video on it. I wanted to incorporate it with these spooky little decorations. The ribbon technique works on any project and it's messy and fun. You will notice the Striped Grosgrain ribbon is thinner because I cut it in half. When you do this it makes the ribbon fray. If you are looking for that messy frayed look this is a GREAT way to get it.
Here is the video! I hope you enjoy and I would love to see your creations. I'm getting ready to make more for my Fall Tree. Can you tell I love these fun trees?
As for the products used on these cones… if there is anything Halloween in the Mini Catalog or the Main Idea Book & Catalog, I used it! <smile> Really, I did!
Lastly, I am so excited about something else! Friday I will be on a jet plane headed to Colorado for our 4th Annual Stampin' for a Cure event. We have broken a record this year on the amount of attendee's coming. I'm over the moon. Each year every single RED cent goes to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. It's such an honor to do this event and I am amazed at the amount of time, effort and work that each demonstrator puts into it every year. These demonstrators give not only their time but they donate ALL the products too. Last year we raised $4700. This year our goal is $6K. I feel strong that we can make that goal and even if we don't we gave it our ALL. I hope you can keep these great women in your thoughts on Saturday. They will be working hard. I'm going to hug them as much as I can this weekend. <sigh>
Have a GREAT Thursday!
