DCC Blog Hop With Amazing Casting Products Day Of The Dead Planner Band

Welcome to the DCC Blog Hop With Amazing Casting Products!

Today I have made a fun Day Of The Dead Planner Band using Amazing Mod Putty and Amazing Clear Cast products from Alumilite. I love that I was able to create a high end crystal looking Sugar Skull of my choice using an old key-chain to make the mold. Here is how I made it...


Amazing Mold Putty
Amazing Clear Cast
Sugar Skull key chain
Clear nail polish
Elastic band
Iridescent glitter


Take equal parts of the Mold Putty and knead until combined completely.

Place item you want to mold into the putty and let dry for 15 minutes.

Remove item from the dry mold. Mix equal parts of the Amazing Clear Cast per included directions. 

Pour Clear Cast into mold add large iridescent glitter to the top. Let set overnight (18-24 hours). Remove item from mold.

Coat with clear nail polish or more varnish if needed to remove any cloudy residue on piece from the mold.

Add clear sequins to the eyes. Glue sugar skull to flower embellishment with hot glue gun.

Attach embellishments to the elastic band with a zip tie. Add to your favorite planner :)

That's it, how cute did this planner band turn out!?! I love that I was able to make a crystal looking version of the original rubber key chain my friend gave me. I love how it looks with the white silk flower.

There is a giveaway! The prize is an ARTIST's DREAM!!!

Halloween Card And Party Favor In One


Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by my blog today for the CardMaker Blog Hop! I have made this cute combination card and party favor for my daughter's Halloween party at school. Since it is both a card and party favor the two won't get separated during handing out the candy. Make sure you check out all of the talented designers participating in the hop at the bottom of the page and don't forget to sign up for the Glue Dots giveaway!

Here is how I made my project...

Scrapbook paper
Pumpkin embellishment
Silhouette cutting file and Silhouette cutting machine
Plastic bags for candy


Cut out pieces using a Silhouette machine and cutting file from the Silhouette Design Store.

Use Glue Dots Glue Squares to attach pieces together.

Use Glue Dots Glue Squares to adhere the pumpkin embellishment to the outside of the box. Fill the plastic bag with candy and place it inside the container.

That's it, how cute is this!?! I know the kids are going to love them at my daughter's Halloween party at school.

Welcome to the Disney Pixar Blog Hop!

Disney and crafting are a magical combination, and we are so happy you joined us to day for this blog hop.  Some of the crafters participating in this event have been doing this together since 2011!  Over the years the hop has grown but one thing has always stayed the same . . . amazing crafting projects that feature your favorite characters from Disney and Pixar movies.

Hi everyone, Tammy Santana with you today with a simple and fun planner layout! I love all things Disney, so when I saw this printable from Victoria Thatcher, I knew I was going to do a Disney planner spread for the week. Here is how I made mine...

Free Disney Printable
Planner of your choice
Paper Wizard Mouse die cut
Hot glue gun
Misc stickers from your stash

1. Print the free printable on label paper and cut out pieces.

2. Place randomly on your planner layout with any additional stickers or embellishments you may have from your stash.

3. Use Paper Wizard Mickey die cut to make a decorative planner clip 

4. Carefully open the layers at the bottom of the die cut and add some hot glue and a paperclip.
