Halloween Projects for Break Out Class at Cozy Craft Retreat – PDF For Sale (or FREE with qualifying order!)

This is the Halloween Break Away Class we did at the Cozy Craft Retreat! We created 5 Halloween projects!

You can purchase the tutorial and learn how to make these 5 projects, along with all the links of miscellaneous products (cauldron, broom, potion bottle, etc.)

This PDF is free for online orders of $50 or more from my website HERE.

Here’s the link for the projects!

Here is a WICKED cauldron, complete with broom pen. There is a miniature potion bottle located on the front of the cauldron

This coffin box has a fancy feather in it, along with a plastic spider to make the coffin even more spooky!

The BOO letters are raised up to make them stand out even more. This glitter frame is 3″x2″.

Fun fold card featuring products from the holiday catalog!

I used the “eclipse” technique, which raises the letters in the word “Wicked” to give it a pop!

This PDF will not be included in the Cozy Craft Retreat PDF next week, as this class was a “stand alone” class at the retreat. Stay tuned for more tutorials!

Trick or Tweet 3×3 Card

Here’s a tiny 3″ x 3″ card to tuck in with your Halloween treat! LOVE the Trick or Tweet stamp set!

I also added a black rhinestone to the spider body. ENJOY!

Trick or Tweet CASE From Catalog

One thing I LOVE about the Stampin’ Up catalogs is the cards and projects that are showcased there! I get so inspired by their concept artists! Take this card, for example. I just switched up the idea in the catalog (shown below) and turned it into a card. Once again, the Trick or Tweet stamp set is one of my favorites!


Halloween Projects – More From Cozy Craft Retreat!

Winding down my Cozy Craft Retreat projects….. this one is our new thinlit dies, Takeout Treats. I paired this with Trick or Tweet stamp set! There is a cute little spider charm, also available from our holiday Stampin’ Up catalog! (see link on my sidebar to the right!) I tied the bow with muslin fabric. The gals enjoyed this little treat project!

I was inspired by Jacquelyn Williams on the cruise with her cute little Frankenstein treat box, here’s my version!

Halloween Project

I still have more retreat photos for you, but taking a quick break from them to post a Halloween project or two! SOON it will be Oct. and I need to post Halloween ideas before it’s too late!

My favorite stamp set for the Halloween season was Trick or Tweet. The cutest little animals are in this set!

If you know me well, you know I have a fetish for candy corn – not necessarily to EAT them (although they are YUMMY with peanuts), but the decorate and use the color scheme with! Seems every year some how I incorporate the 3 candy corn colors in a card. Here’s this year’s version!

The little sign is hard to see, here’s a better version of the laminated sign I made. THANKS Jennie Portonova for sending this cartoon to me! She knows I get a kick out of candy corn things!

The witch feet are from Michael’s Craft Store.
