Curvy Box Pumpkins, Monsters & Mummy’s oh my…

I have several very talented team members.  Today’s blog post I am sharing all of Dreamia Toloso’s fabulous hand made pumpkins, monsters & mummys.  She teaches classes in Louisiana, if you live in that area and would like to attend classes please look her up here: DREAMIA’s CREATIONS.  You can also follow her Facebook page HERE.


You haven’t even seen the cutest part yet.  Check out the mummy’s and the monster.  You can see my Tips & Tricks below for how to make some of these items.


Tips & Tricks:
  • Curvy Box:  The Curvy Box Framelit can be found in the 2014 Stampin’ UP! Holiday Catalog.  It’s fantastic for making all kinds of cute things. 
  • The Mummy:  Dreamia created the mummy wraps by cutting several strips of curvy paper and then inking the edges and adhering them down to the box.  The eyes where punched using the circle punches and neatly tucked under the strips to give the appearance they are peeking out.
  • The Pumpkins:  Dreamia used the Work of Art stamp set to stamp the lines on the pumpkin.  She used Pumpkin Pie card stock and pumpkin pie ink, because what else would you use on a pumpkin, right!?  The leaves are cut and stamped using the Flower Patch Bundle.  The strips of curly paper were most likely wrapped around a pencil to be given a curl.  The adorable acorn was cut from the Autumn Accents die and the top was probably colored with blendabilities to be made darker.
  • The Monster:  Using Basic Black and Old Olive card stock to create these adorable monsters was the perfect idea.  She used fringe scissors one one of the monsters to create his hair and hand cut the points on the other monster.  These monsters are created from the Fry Box Die.
Great job Dreamia.  You can place orders in Dreamias online store.

Homeschool Update:  We are so ready for a break.  We are going to be going on vacation Nov 11th and we couldn’t be happier about it LOL.  We’ve been plugging along getting our work done, having lots of fun, play dates, Awanas, etc.  However, we are both ready for some R&R with no school work 🙂  I forgot to take photos this week of our homeschool ventures, so I don’t have photos for you.  Sorry!  Next week hopefully!
Happy Halloween everyone!  Hope you have a fantastic day!  Check out my fun Halloween Board on Pinterest!

Today I have a few card shares I’ve been working on.  The first one I used the Harvest of Thanks stamp set for.

It’s kind of a fun fold card.  I really love how it turned out.





I made few fun Halloween Cards that were SUPER EASY, using the Witches Brew Designer Paper.  The first group here I just cut the paper at 
5 1/4″ x 4″ and then colored some of the lines in using my Stampin’ Write Markers.

This one I used the Owl Punch to make the cute ghosts!

And here I used my 1″ Square punch to create all the squares.

I made these Mini Milk Carton Treats for my class Tuesday night.  I loved the eyeballs in the box.  I used basic gray for the box and embossed it.  I was hoping for a cement, or castle feel to the box.  I am not sure I accomplished that but they still turned out cute.
