THE BUCKLE BOUTIQUE DESIGN TEAM HALLOWEEN BLING PARTY!

WELCOME TO THE BUCKLE BOUTIQUE DESIGN TEAM HALLOWEEN BLING PARTY!

I am so glad to see you HOPPING along with me and The Buckle Boutique Design Team on this journey of Halloween bling projects! ITS A HALLOWEEN BLING PARTY! YAY! I’m up next to show you what I have created using The Buckle Boutiques self adhesive resin bling sheets, which you can go buy right HERE! I promise you will be in instant LOVE! Anyways, onto my project!

I want to share with you the SUPER adorable jack-o-lantern treat bag I made! You could hand these out to trick or treaters filled with goodies on Halloween night, or use as a fun classroom treat bag for a school Halloween party, or as I’m using it for, a Halloween themed birthday party goodie bag for the kids! You could even use this to hold cupcakes at a party! I mean I could go on and on, the possibilities are endless with this adorable little treat bag, and everything is better with bling 🙂

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

1. The svg file for the treat bag which can be found at Birds Cards <– click there to go see all the AMAZING projects she creates and offers for FREE! Book mark her, she is awesome!

2. Your favorite cardstock in orange, black and a tiny bit of green

3. Two strips of ribbon about 11 inches long

4. Your favorite adhesive or tape runner/glue dot runner

5. Now here my favorite part, you will only need two 1×1 inch pieces of The Buckle Boutiques self adhesive resin gemstones, of course you could always go WILD and bling the whole pumpkin, or do the sides of the treat bag also, you know what I say.. there’s no such thing as TOO MUCH BLING!

Here’s what I did:

So I downloaded the file from Birds Cards and used my Silhouette Cameo to cut it out. I made it at big as my 12×12 mat would allow, and cut the main bag part on one mat and the pumpkins and stems on another mat. Here’s what it looked like once it was all cut out

Image

Once cut out I followed Birds directions on how to glue the treat bag together which is super easy, you just put glue on the tabs and lift them up to meet the back on the pumpkin side of the treat bag

Image

So here’s what it looks like once it is glued together

Image

Okay here’s the FUN part, you glue the bottom half of your jack-o-lantern to the treat bag, figure out where the eyes are and peel off the backing on The Buckle Boutiques amazing bling sheets 1×1 pieces and stick to the black treat bag and then finish gluing your jack-o-lantern on over it! If you choose to do both sides, repeat on opposite side ( I only did one side so I could write the kids names on the back side of the treat bag, along with a thank you for attending our get together) HERE IT IS! ALMOST DONE!

Image

Last, you feed your ribbon through both holes on each side and tie a knot on the inside or glue it, or you could leave the ribbon off entirely! Its up to you! and here’s what your left with! Cute huh?!

As a fun treat for the girls attending my daughters party, I also made a denim bow out of old jeans topped with a strip of bling from The Buckle Boutique!

The Great Pumpkin Challenge on LSHD!

I decided to finally try one of the challenges on the Little Scraps of Heaven Design Blog! It just had to be something to do with pumpkins, take one of their files that has pumpkins and turn it into whatever you want!  So me being the scrapbooker that I am, decided to do a scrapbook page to go with our pumpkin patch pictures (that have yet to be developed, hence the reason I’m posting without pics on the page, which I almost NEVER do). So here’s what I came up with! I hope you love it as much as I do! I can’t WAIT to get the pics and journaling on this one!Image

I think the scarecrow and the lil fat pumpkins and the sign turned out BEAUTIFULLY!

Design Team Member?! ME?! *blush* Oh you shouldn’t have!!!

SO heres the scoop! I totally blinged out my cameo! I had found the PERFECT product from The Buckle Boutique, and blinged it out and posted it to a group on facebook. Shortly there after, I was contacted by a lady named Shawn and after talking for a few,she asked ME to join the design team cause she and so many others loved my blinged out cameo machine so much and thought I could share more projects and ideas! SO now I get to work with this awesome product and show you guys what I come up with! I have been announced on their blog as a DESIGN TEAM MEMBER with my bio and pic and everything!

Some how I feel like this validates my crafting, like… I’m a REAL crafter now, not just some stay at home mom who scrapbooks and blings things out to kill time and keep her sanity from flying out the window with its bags packed! People look at and appreciate my creativity and want to know what I’m up to next! So there you have it! I’m excited! I’ve already been working on my design team member projects 🙂 So keep and eye out!

Got your shades ready?! Your gunna need them for this BLING BLING!

Got your shades ready?! Your gunna need them for this BLING BLING!

So I decided to bling out my cameo, after doing LOTS of research I decided I had many concerns, like.. what if a stone falls off with all the vibration of the cutting machine, over time, and then falls into my nearly 300 dollar machine and RUINS IT! AGHH! NOO! Or what if my very unsteady, very prone to mess up things, hands don’t line it up right and I can’t re-stick it.. I’D BE STUCK WITH IT and it would make me CRAZY! So after seeing products that TOLD me if you lift it up the stones WILL pop off, and seeing 30+ dollars as the price tag I thought, wow this is not going to happen! BUT THEN, *insert bright shining light onto my dilemma* along came The Buckle Boutique! They offered a reasonably priced self adhesive sheet of gel type gems! Which are also cuttable on the machine itself, so no worries of it jamming my machine! Also, if you pull the sheet up, they DO NOT pop off! Im in LA-LA-LA-LOVE with these sheets and plan to bling MANY more things with them and would suggest them to anybody, even if your not a scrapbooker.. you could easily and cost effective bling your make up brushes, household items (like the area around the knobs on your washer or kitchen canisters), add bling to a dollar store frame and save yourself a FOURTUNE, decorate your kids dresser fronts, laptop, tablet, base of lamp, folders, binders, scrapbook pages, and the list goes ONNNNN and ONNNNN! SO anyways, heres what I did with my cutting machine called the Cameo. And I must admit, every time I walk past it, Im tempted to hit on my machine 😉 Its just so darn cute! If you need help purchasing or want to know more or just want to know where to go to get a good deal on this amazing product you can find it at http://www.TheBuckleBoutique.com or get ahold of me and I’d be more then happy to help you! Also, tell them DESIGN TEAM MEMBER NIKI WILSON sent you 🙂 Happy Scrapping or in this case HAPPY BLINGING! Come back to Scrappingwithniki to see more of my projects with this project in the future and comment if you would like to see me bling something or have a suggestion!
