Happy Hauntings

3D Haunted House from Happy Hauntings Cartridge.
House cut fit to page from 12 x 12 black cardstock, which
turned out to be at 7".
I had to use Red tape to get the roof to stay on and
on the corners of the house. 
Yellow cardstock used to back all the windows. 
3D Tree at the right is cut at 6".
3D Tree on left is cut at 7".
Ghost cut at 2".  Skeleton cut at 3",
 Dracula and pumpkin cut at 2"..
I tried cutting the skeleton at 2" but the pieces were too small to handle easily.
I had to use a tweezers to assist in handling some of the small pieces.

Advent Calendar

I haven't been doing much scrapping lately since I've been working at
my second hobby of sewing.  This is an Advent Calendar I made for display
at work.  I used the Advent Calendar designs from AnitaGoodesign.
I used 2 yards of Red, Green and Gold Material,
and 1 Yard of white material.
An iron on stabilizer was using to prevent puckering.
The embroidery was done on my Viking sewing machine
using about 25 different colors of Isacord embroidery thread.
Green material and warm and natural batting is on the back.
The numbers are on pockets so that you can use a marker to count
down the days to Christmas.
I twisted red and green pipe cleaners tied with white ribbon to make the marker.
You could use real candy canes. 
I worked on this after work and on weekends, so it took me about a month to finish. 
This will make a nice addition to my home at Christmas.
