Vintage Halloween Altered Cupcake Tin

Hi friends and happy Friday! I'm up at the Simple Stories Blog today sharing my latest altered Simple Stories project with you! Have you ever altered a cupcake tin? I've been wanting to for quite sometime now and I finally did it! I love how this cute little piece turned out and it's just in time for Halloween too! If you haven't gotten your crafty hands on the darling new Simple Vintage Halloween Collection yet, I sure hope you'll want to after seeing this spooktacular showcase!
There's a few different choices when it comes to cupcake tins. Depending on what your project is, you can get a 6, 12 or even a 24 slot tin. The more slots, the smaller they are. For this project, I chose to alter a 6 slot tin. First, spray paint cupcake tin in black inside and out. Let dry, spray paint 2nd layer and let dry again. Next, line inside of each slot with black lace trim. Now our tin is ready to begin decorating! The circle die cuts in the Bits & Pieces are a perfect fit to adhere to the wall of each slot.
Create a main title and build the scene adorable images from the 6x12 Chipboard and Combo Stickers. The smaller images from 4x6 Stickers are just right for the insides of the cupcake slots. Add dimension to some pieces with 3D Foam Squares.

Embellish with extra accents like ribbon, sequins, bling trim, enamel dots, etc. The imagination is the limit! I couldn't help but fill in just about every nook and cranny of my cupcake tin! So. Much. Fun.
Don't forget that there's much more to this darling and festive collection! The 12x12 Collection Kit and 3 Pack Washi Tape is a must-have for any Halloween-loving crafter or planner! For me, another perk to this collection is that it's not too scary or creepy. It's much more on the cute and sweet side, which I love. It's a great collection for the young and the young at heart! I think this will be a super cute addition to this years Halloween décor!
And that's all for me! Thank you so much for stopping by and allowing me to share my project with you today! I've enjoyed it so much and I hope you have been inspired to create something fabulous with the Simple Vintage Halloween Collection too! Until next time, happy crafting!

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L + Jillibean Soup Blog Swap Week-Day 2!

Take a look at this cool vibe going on the canvas project that I created for Day 2 of our Blog Swap Week with Jillibean Soup. We are visiting both companies’ blogs and Instagram accounts for wonderful giveaways. The designs from the Bohemian Brew Collection Pack inspired her to make this project with our E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser and its various E-Z Runner® Grand Refills, and Creative Photo Corners. Don’t forget to read all the way to the end for giveaway details!

Bohemian Brew Collage Canvas by Linsey Rickett

Creative Bohemian Vibe and Jillibean Soup by Linsey Rickett for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L
Using an 8.5 x 11″ canvas, I created a collage style with a cool vibe! I started with the 12 x 12″ sheet of Content patterned paper cut to size and adhered to the base of the canvas board with E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser and E-Z Runner® Grand Ultra Strong Refill. Changing out the refill was a breeze!
Check out the short video on How to Use and Refill E-Z Runner Grand Dispensers below.
A piece of the blue patterned paper panel from Happiness was adhered down first and on top of it, a piece of the red patterned paper panel from the B side of Content was adhered down. This completes the layered base of the canvas.

Embellishing the Canvas

Now for the fun part, embellishing! For the focal images (“Enjoy the Journey” and “Beautiful Soul”), Bohemian Brew Bite Size Bites was used by cutting the two panels and securing them with the Gold and White Corners from the Creative Photo Corners Mix Pack.

A variety of Bohemian Brew Coordinating Stickers, Bohemian Brew Puffy Stickers, and Bohemian Brew Pea Pods were added to decorate the collage canvas. A few of the stickers were popped up using Premium Double-Sided Tape 1/4in for added dimension and a bit of ribbon wrapped around opposite corners of the canvas board using E-Z Runner® Grand Repositionable Dots Refill to finish. This repositionable adhesive is perfect for easy ribbon placement and is used with the E-Z Runner® Grand Refillable Dispenser.

Simple Stories Dream Big Ferris Wheel

Hi friends and happy Sunday! I'm up over at the Simple Stories Blog today sharing my latest altered project using the Dream Big collection! This magical collection is brimming with adorable images and sentiments that bring me back to childhood. I love the rainbows and fairies, the unicorns and roller skates--oh my! So much dreamy goodness, just imagine the possibilities! Come along and take a ride on my Dream Big Ferris Wheel!
First, all pieces were painted white around the edges and then covered with patterned papers from the Dream Big Collection Kit. After adhering all papers down and allowing to dry, all edges were sanded gently.
After putting together all pieces and building of the ferris wheel, it's now time to decorate the front! I love how the DREAM lettering from 6x12 Chipboard draws attention and makes one want to fly with fairies! A magical unicorn ticket-taker greets all guests and sprinkles a bit of fairy dust upon them before seating!
The Dream Big ferris wheel brings together all kinds of friends! Mermaids, kitty's, fairies, cupcake sweeties and unicorn-ice cream cone wannabes alike! Everyone loves to ride on the Dream Big Ferris Wheel! Make a wish while riding and it might even come true!
Thanks so much for visiting today! I hope you enjoyed my project and feel inspired to create something magical with the awesome Dream Big collection too! Until next time, dream BIG and happy crafting!

Really Reasonable Ribbon September Blog Hop!

Hello there, friends! It's time for the RRR September Blog Hop and if you're already hopping, then you should be arriving to me from KATHY'S amazing blog! If not, head over to the RRR Blog to start the hop!
This month, we are showcasing projects using the fantastic September Ribbon Club Assortment! This is a spooktacular mix of bright colors and festive patterns and it's just perfect for all your upcoming Halloween (and more) creations! Guess what? You could win it! Just comment on each of the blogs along the hop including the RRR blog for your chance to win this super fun ribbon assortment! 
With Halloween right around the corner, I decided to make a super cute pinwheel wreath for my front door! I made one over the summer also and it was a hit, so I took the advice of a good friend and made another with a Halloween theme for our September blog hop! 
I used a small wire wreath frame for this project so I needed approximately 24 4"x4" square pieces of patterned paper (double-sided is best) with a Halloween theme. To form mini pinwheel, fold square in half to make a triangle, unfold, then repeat on opposite side. Cut along folds to 1/2" from center. Fold every other corner to center and adhere with dot of glue. Punch 1/2" circles from scrap paper and adhere to center of pinwheels, then add a sequin to the center of each circle. 
I used all of the ribbons from the September Ribbon Club Assortment on my wreath. I cut 2 strips each of all the wider ribbons, then 4 strips each of all the narrow ribbons. Tie all into bows, then layer narrow ribbons on top of wider ribbons and add festive sticker to center of each double bow. 
Arrange and adhere all bows to wreath. 
So much cuteness and so much fun! 😍
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you like my project and feel inspired to create something pretty with ribbons today! Your next stop on the blog hop is SHEILA! Have a great day--happy hopping and happy crafting!
