Halloween Wood Blocks

Halloween is the best holiday. I like to dress up, decorate the house, hand out candy and participate in corn mazes, haunted houses, trunk or treats and hay rides. What a great time of year.  One of my favorite things to do is make wood blocks. Most of the companies do a sheet of paper that comes in 4x4, 4x6, 3x4 or a variation of these sizes. So for the cost of a sheet of paper and some wood blocks I can make some pretty spectacular decorations in under 2 hours. If you like these wood blocks, and want to make your own, the supplies can be found at Allscrapbooksteals.com in the section marked Wood Shoppe. Happy Crafting!!! Jacqueline
I like to add dimension, the candy corn  doodle-pop fit perfect, the jewels really make it sparkle

We have a black cat named "Bear" so of course we had to do this block with a cat.

I wanted the web to really stand out...I just love jewels.

Doodlebug October 31st 12x12 Bump in the Night 4826 does not need any embellishments. It is already cute on its own.

This owl has the cutest eyes.

Maybe i went a little crazy on the bling, but I do like the sparkle.

This paper is from Doodlebug October 31st 12x12 Stitching Hour 4819.

The back side of these Halloween is back to school. I love it.

I just want to get more out of my blocks so they can be turned around.

We have everything from Paper to Marquees, Stamps to Straws, and banners to markers. Some of our favorite items for Christmas are found in the new Christmas line from American Crafts "Deck the Halls".

Happy Crafting!!! Jacqueline

Deck the Halls has fun decorative paper. The 6x6 Paper pads are perfect for card-making and scrapbooking

I love this combination of washi tape. It is perfect for Christmas. The Holly is so subtle and I love the candy cane stripe.

This style reminds me of when I was a child. So excited for Christmas every year.

Ephemera packs are always a big hit. There are so many useful pieces.

Silver and Gold. Who else is singing the song to from Rudolph?

Acrylic stamps are so cool. I used to use wood and then last year I was introduced to acrylic. They are AWESOME.

Love the stars!!! (Of course, I love them, they are covered in glitter)

This reminds me of the holiday classic the Grinch, the colors and shapes. 

These candy canes are so pretty. 

This would be perfect for an advent calendar. Hmm....I better get busy.

Fun things in American Crafts Gallery

On Tuesday we traveled down to American Crafts to meet with some of our friends there. We want to give a shout out to our friends Mike, Carissa, Allison and Lori. It was so fun to chat with them, but the best part was the tour of their new offices and showroom. We love all the stuff that they are coming out with. Today I wanted to show you the pictures that they hang in their hallways. These are their gallery pictures and they are absolutely gorgeous.  I really like how they color coordinated their products and made them into beautiful collage pictures.  They really have fantastic products. American Crafts products are available at Allscrapbooksteals.com. Happy Crafting!!! Jacqueline

Blue and Purple tones. I love the straws and the cup of buttons.

Greens...that is a beautiful circle fan, and what a fun treat bag.

I really like the journal with the camera. I believe that is Amy Tangerine.

I have so many products in this picture including the ribbon. Love the magnet cutting mat with the ruler.

Those red cherries make this board so cheery.

This is just so elegant.

Sparkles and Gold

Yellow and Orange...sunny days ahead!!!

Carta Bella Christmas Wonderland

We all loved the nostalgia of Carta Bella "Trick or Treat". We get that same look in the new Carta Bella "Christmas Wonderland". When I was little I had this beautiful book called "The Joy of Christmas". This book had beautiful illustrations, stories, songs, and photographs. I would look at this book all time and think of Christmas with my own family. This new line brings it all back to me. This will definitely be a line I want in my craft room. Check out Carta Bella "Christmas Wonderland" at Allscrapbooksteals.com today. Happy Crafting!!! Jacqueline
