Halloween cards by my nieces


Just wanted to share wiht you these crads that my nieces madethis week, we don't sem to do Halloween cards in this country but with all the fasb Halloween crafting stuff that is available it seems a shame not to make good use of them, the kids enjoyed it and I think the results are great.

They got their inspiration from the October issue of Cards magazine which I think has the most amazing cards on it and my subscription to all of their magazines is only around £6 a month which I think is such a bargain.

The papers were all from Pink Petticoats Halloween kits and the shapes were all die cut, the ribbon is from my stash.

Hope you like them

Halloween Cupcake Wrappers :-)


I had such a great time making these cupcakes, I am rubbish at icing so they do look a bit pants but it was the wrappers I was trying to focus on not the actual cakes.

I 've decided to try and make a bit of extra money to help pay for our fabulous Carribbean cruise next year and one of the ways is to sell these cupcake wrappers on eBay.

I've used papers from the halloween collections from Pink Petticoat (the links are in the post previous to this)

I hope you like them and if anyones interested you can buy them here or here on eBay.

Thanks for looking

Halloween Treats!!!

I'm loving the new Design Team over at Pink Petticoat, it's fab to have such amazing inspiration almost on a daily basis, I keep meaning to try out everything but this is the first that I have got round to doing.

They are inspired by the work of Terrie Bailey who is on the DT and this is the post that got my creative juices flowing.
They are nowhere near as good as Terries but considering I made 40 in one sitting I don't think I did too badly. I am donating all 40 to an event we are holding at work in aid of The Rainbow Trust so hopefully they will fetch a few pennies in for the very worthwhile cause.

Everything was made using the 3 Haloween kits from Pink Petticoat - Spooky Doodlies and the Happy Hauntings for boys and girls.

The directions for making the "sour cream containers" are also from Pink Petticoat and you can find them here.
Hope you like them and thanks for looking
