Superstition: Happy Fall Wreath

Hey! It’s Tiffany. I can’t belive that it’s already Halloween week, can you? Goodness, I guess I’d better get to posting my latest hybrid project… Have you uploaded any of your hybrid projects to the Design House Digital gallery? Check out mine if you need a little inspiration, or look back through our first week of October hybrid project a day. You’ve only got a few days left to enter the Deena Rutter Hybrid Halloween contest. so get those projects posted and linked so you can WIN!!

BLOG cat wreath for this project I used a grapevine wreath. Mine was Oval-shaped. I got it at Joann’s for $2 a few months back, waiting for the perfect season… FALL! I first added my burlap rosettes to my wreath. Each rosette is adorned with some brads from Deena’s Blackbird collection with My Mind’s Eye. I used the more versitle brads so i can change out my plate for thanksgiving, possibly?

I used the cat cutting file from Deena’s Superstition D-cut pack (Design House Digital) and a basic C (either for my last name, or cat… either one.) I adhered them to the plate, glued a strip of burlap to the back of the plate and tied it to the top of my wreath. Nothing crazy-fancy, but it sure makes my front door look cute.

Happy crafting!!



Blackbird and Superstition: Happy October crafting week – day seven

Hey There! It's Tiffany, on our final day of our Happy October Crafting week. I hope this has helped you along your Halloween crafting.  Have you been working on some hybrid projects? We'd love to see them. Just put them into the gallery at Design House Digital, and post your link here.

Tot bucket For my trick or treat bucket I used papers from the Blackbird line. This bucket is the clear paint-type bucket that I picked it up at Michaels. I love that you can put  your paper inside. So easy. For my cute little witchy button I used Deena's Basic D-cuts circle and circle scallop (design house digital) in coordinating paper. I used some Rayon fabric and gathered it along the back of my pin. I used the cute Witch from the chipboard of Blackbird. Then i tied some black ribbon on the handle and I'm ready to start filling it with some candy, or perfect to fill with treats for the neighbors?  Happy Haunting!

If you like cutting files, paper, ribbon and all the trimmings, you are going to love this mantle that my friend Courtney made for her home.  She used my SUPERSTITION cutting files, BLACKBIRD paper, SUPERSTITION PAPER, my free BANNER BORDER found here, chipboard letters from the local craft store, pom-poms bought on ebay, and a lot of imagination.

Blackbird and Superstition: Happy October crafting week – day five

Tiff has been making some fun stuff, now it's my turn. For today's project, I used BLACKBIRD diecuts, paper, and brads, plus my digital cuts from SUPERSTITION at Design House Digital. 


First, I cut lots of circles out of the BLACKBIRD paper varying from 2"-5".  I strung them with fishing line.

I cut houses from the d-cuts.

Drutter-superstition-chandelier2 Using a wire mesh that I found at Home Depot, I simply cut with some cheap household scissors, and added brads to hold them in place. I tied ribbons at 4 different spots to hang it all evenly.  Then I just tied the fishing wire through the wire mesh in random spots at different lengths.

I placed the cute little die-cut sticker people on the fronts of circles. For a final touch, I added brads to the wire mesh going around and through the center.





Blackbird and Superstition: Happy October crafting week – day four

Happy Monday! It's Tiffany. Meet Hal. He's snuggly, fluffy, and just plain cute.  Crow pillow For today's project I used Deena's crow D-cut from the superstition line at Design House digital. I used black felt. It's pretty hard to cut out on the cricut. Actually, it doesn't cut at all, so I traced and cut it out I thought this crow was pretty easy. I used wonder-under and ironed it on to my off-white fleece. I'm not much of a seamstress, but with a little embroidery stitching to hide my sewing flaws, I think he turned out okay. Doesn't it just look so perfect on my mom's little teeny-tiny rocking chair from when she was little?
