WELL....wait no longer, it will be available this Friday, 10/25/2013  in her store HERE!


For my project today, I made a bat spinner card for my little nephews!  It's a 5" x 6 1/2" card (I love how my We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board  frees me up to make any size card, knowing that I can still make a matching envelope).  That cute patterned paper is from the My Mind's Eye Wicked collection, which I found at Michael's.  It was perfect for the scene I wanted to create.


I tried to get some pictures to show you the movement of the bat!  If you've never made a spinner card before, my friend Liz, of Liz's Paper Loft Boutique, has a great tutorial.  I wanted my bat to spin down in a semicircular direction, so I created the slot in Silhouette Studio.   The cute bat was made with the Cricut Create a Critter 2 cartridge, cut at 1 1/4".


I used the Cricut Chic & Scary cartridge to make this spooky tree, cutting it at 4 1/4".  The enamel dots are also from the MME Wicked collection.


This cat is also from Chic & Scary, cut at 1 1/2".  The spooky sentiment and the bats are from My Creative Time's Fright Night stamp set.  I just love how well they match the paper!
