As I prepare for a trip to Mexico with my hubby for our 10th wedding anniversary, I was in the mood for some homemade guacamole! I had an avocado at home, but I didn’t have all of the other traditional ingredients for guacamole! So, I improvised and used what I had and OMG! my whole family loved it! It was super easy and only took a few minutes! Even my husband that isn’t a guacamole eater, liked it!
Super Easy Guacamole
Easy and Yummy Guacamole made with minimum ingredients!
It’s that time of year again! It’s now Fall and the weather is changing. And if you go to your local stores, Halloween displays are out! With the Halloween displays, comes the Candy Corn! Yum! My friend Laura Kelly created a cute little Candy Corn Printable. You can download it for free! And if you make something with it, she’d love to see it!
I love to color by hand, but I also love using the Live Paint Bucket in Adobe Illustrator to color! That’s what I did here with Laura’s printable! I also added a few words on one of the pieces of Candy Corn that I planned to cut out and use for my Candy Corn guessing game! Once the sheet was all colored, I created a “Guesses!” sheet, leaving room at the top to add some of the colored pieces from the sheet. I printed out my colored Candy Corn Printable, cut some pieces out and glued them to my “Guesses!” sheet! Now it’s time for everyone to make their guesses as to how many pieces of Candy Corn are in my mason jar! I can’t wait to find out who gets the closest! I did not count them yet, as I wanted to make a guess too! Hope you like my quick and fun idea of using Laura’s cute Candy Corn Printable!!!
Until next time………

I’m so excited to be joining 15 minute Craft Lightning again! The theme for this Craft Lightning by The Country Chic Cottage, 30 Minute Crafts and 100 Directions is Halloween! My 15 minute craft was inspired by my awesome friend Laura Kelly!
If you are like me, you probably have paint chips lying around in your house! These orange, black and brown ones were perfect for these quick and super easy Paint Chip Pumpkins!
All you have to do is create your little pumpkin with the paint chips, goggly eyes, ribbon and glue (I used Aleene’s!) and stick it right on to your blank card! And then write you a spooky little note inside!
The same was done here using a cute little brown paper party bag! Perfect for Halloween Party Goody Bags! Inside this little party bag are a few little Halloween Lollipops from Lollipics!
Hope you liked these cute little Paint Chip Pumpkin Card and Bag decorations! These are quick and easy and perfect for the little ones to do!
Halloween will be here before we know it! And I am super excited. I love to pull out the Halloween decorations!
While I was at Target one day, I saw a popup heart piece in the framed art section and I thought it was so cute. I had not seen anything like it with Halloween designs and I don’t think the heart one had any words. I thought I’d make a Halloween one with cute little pumpkins and a font that was a little ghoulish! Materials needed:
A shadowbox frame
cardstock (I used four pieces….black, white, green, orange)
Aleene’s glue and a adhesive runner,
Electronic Cutting Machine (I used the Sizzix Eclips2)
Halloween .svg file that I created. (comment if you’d like the file)
Once my file was cut and removed from the cutting mat, I lightly folded the cut parts upwards. I also saved the inside pieces of the letters.
Once all of my pieces were folded up, I cut strips of orange and green just big enough to fit across the back of my 12×12 piece. I used green for the stems and orange for the pumpkins. Using an Aleene’s adhesive runner, I attached the strips to the back, being careful not the squash my folded up pieces flat.
Because the insides of the letters were small, I used Aleene’s Tacky Glue to glue those to the green.
After all of my pieces were put together, I placed them into 12×12 shadowbox frames.
This photo is just to show them from each side, so that you can see that the orange and green can be seen from under the folded upward pieces of pumpkin.
I love them both, but truth be told, the black one is my favorite. It looks more Halloween-ish!
I hope you liked my Happy Halloween Pumpkin Cut Art. If you’d like the .svg file, just let me know in a comment and I will be sure to get that to you!
