Sky's the limit with this kit! - Boaf October kit

Hi all, jen t. here. I am stopping by today to share a page and card i made using more of the october kit. For the page, i first started with the leaf paper and played around on cricut( which i haven't done in a long time) and decided that clouds would be fun. So i hit repeat and cut the whole page. I then backed it with the yellow woodgrain paper. Next i wanted to play with my ink from the kit so i colored them with it. ( check out my technique tuesday post next week for more about that). Then i pop dotted them for dimension. Then i grabbed the cutaparts,epherma,and puffy stickers and layered away . I ended up covering my clouds on the bottom so i could sdd more patterns and layers. 

Here is a close- up

Then i took a piece of the brown bazzill and made a card base. Next, i took the book text paper and stamped a rectangle using the wood veneer as a stamp. Then i fussy cut out a flower from another piece of pattern paper and layered it on . Lastly, i grabbed the wood veneers, glitter letters stickers and added and layered them around the card. 

Side view- 

Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!

Oriental trading- diy halloween door banner and product review

Hi all, are you ready for halloween?! There is still plenty of time to get your craft on! These yummy craft goodies below i was given to by oriental trading to review and i made a fun diy banner to show you what i made with it all. ( warning --many pictures ahead... Lol!)
So here is a list of the goodies i got and my review: 

Halloween stickles- 8 in the pack!! 
Love them and super price
Black duck tape- great quality and stuck well 
Ghost string lights - super cute gauzy ghosts i wouldn't recommend using them outside because i think they would not look as nice wet but i used them for a inner door so they are perfect for my project
Black chalk board paint- great paint , nice and thick! I can't wait to use it for more future projects
Modge podge-   Great stick and easy to pour and paint with ( i love this stuff) 
Canvas door banner- thin canvas would have been too flimsy without the duct tape. 
Large diecut tree -super cute! Made of nice and thick paper 
Boo party napkins-  thick napkins - i actually got two boo's from one napkin and i still have a bunch left for halloween night snacks 
Halloween paper pack -  alot of papers! 5o pieces!nice and a great weight not thin. Great value - down side is that it is single- sided but it worked fab for my project. 

Work in progress : i layed out long pieces of wax paper on the table do my canvas banner wouldn't stick then i spread my canvas banner out- this is a large banner not super thick but when i modge podged the paper onto it , it became more sturdy. So i painted with foam brushes the modge podge onto the backs of my papers then adhered them to the banner. The halloween papers are so nice made of thick paper one-sided with 2 of each design and a ton of other patterns ( a great deal)
Then i took the black chalk paint and did a light layer of it onto the huge tree diecut to give it a creepy look. A second coat would have made it a solid black but i liked the look of just one coat. 

Next i modge podged the tree right on top of the pattern paper. The i grabbed those cute boo napkins and took the napkin layers apart leaving me with a single ply. I then used the piece to modge podge right onto the pattern paper.

Then with the diecut leaves i brushed on some   black chalk paint, crumbled them and glued them on to go with my distressed spooky look. After that i decided i wanted the banner more distressed so i rubbed the paper in spots to the white core and then brushed it with the black paint. 

Next, i took the black duck tape and trimmed the whole banner with it to give it a border and to make it sturdier. Lastly, i took the string ghosts lights and poked holes thru where i wanted to ghosts and pushed them thru to the front of the banner. Then on the back i used the duck tape to cover the wires and hold the battery pack. Finally i took the stickles ( glitter glue) and added touches of sparkle to the ghosts and leaves. The stickles are uber glittery while they do take time to dry they are well worth the wait. ( everything is better with glitter. Right?! )

The ghost lights are super cute and change colors when they are on. pic of them lit up below.

**disclosure* I was given these products for review.
