Yum, yum … give me some! Are you going to a Halloween party this year? Maybe you’re in charge of bringing cupcakes to the office party, or your child’s class party? I always love a festive cupcake (Mmmmm!) … especially when it comes dressed for the occasion!
Today I have a fun twist on the classic cupcake topper … Shaker Cupcake Toppers!
Spellbinders and Scrapbook.com were kind enough to send me a Platinum 6 die cut machine and a couple of their die sets to play with! Last week, I shared a quick and easy gift idea using the Textured Flowers die.
Today, I am playing with the Witch on Broom dies!
When I saw that witch, I knew right away that I wanted her to be flying across a spooky moon … and then I saw the bats! What if I create a moon shaker with the bats inside?!!! YES!!!! … So that is exactly what I did.
I added them to the top of decorative straws in Halloween colors, and then added ribbons and square buttons tied with black twine. The witch, double-cut and layered in orange foil and black cardstock, floats across the front of the moon shaker with the help of a few foam dots.
I created some cupcake wrappers with my Silhouette Cameo 3 machine to coordinate. So cute!
They look absolutely adorable all grouped together for the party guests!
What a fun (and delicious) way to add a festive touch to your Halloween food table!
A BIG THANK YOU to Spellbinders and Scrapbook.com for sending me these fun things to play with! I LOVED working with these supplies, and have discovered a new favorite manual die cut machine!
Today I have a trio of Halloween cards to share with you using the American Crafts BOOtiful Night collection.
This was such a fun set to put together! First, I began by cutting three card bases from the 12×12 Black Textured Cardstock. I then chose which die cuts I wanted to feature on each card and then selected 6×6 paper to go with each one.
I thought the spooky night scene paper would be perfect to go behind the Haunted House die cut! I added some black pearls a Halloween wood button tied with twine, and two puffy sticker jack-o-lanterns sitting near the porch … just waiting to greet the trick-or-treaters!
How CUTE are the ghosts in this collection?! I don’t think I would run away from these two if I came across them … they are too friendly and sweet to bo scary!
I would call the skulls in this collection sweet-and-spooky … their expression has a goofy edge to it, don’t you think? I added a silver spiderweb doily and some candy stickers to accent this silly guy.
I can’t wait to send these off to some friends!

Have a great day!
Today is Friday the 13th! The perfect day to send someone a spooky, Halloween card!
I’m going to send this first one to one of my Ghoul-friends!
I just love all of the framed monsters and ghouls from the Portrait Gallery Paper
and had to feature the pretty witch on this card. Did you notice her not-so-pretty, creepy shadow? Cute!
Lots of witch’s brooms and potions adorned this one … topped off with a few, friendly bats!
For this next card, I cut out the scary (but cute!) cats from the Journaling Cards paper
to layer up on this last card.
A sweet little ghost and several bats complete the spooky scene!
Thanks for coming by today!
