Hell Moxxie friends!! It's Misty here wih a "Spine" chilling swing card using "All Hallow's Eve" collection!! Again, I love playing with all these goodies!! This is a fun card that can be adapted to a variety of differet themes!!
Here is the recipe:
4 1/4" x 5 1/2" Arachnophobia paper (base)
3 1/8" x 4 1/4" Sharp Dressed Man--Side A (top)
3 x 4 1/4" Sharp Dressed Man--Side B (bottom)
Before I started adhering any pieces, I distressed and inked all of my edges on the paper! To start off, we are going to create the stopper for this card, so that the top piece will be able to swing open and closed. To do this, you want to lay your base card down on to your work surface and then lay your top piece onto the base. Line up the top sides with the base of your card. DO NOT glue this piece down. Put a couple of foam pop dots right below where your top piece falls, as shown in the photo. These pop dots are what will create your stopper.
I then took a border punch and punched a scallop border onto the top of the bottom piece of cardstock. This piece can now be attached to your base card, by applying more foam pop dots, leaving the top left corner without any pop dots. Leave this corner opened since a brad will be going there allowing the card to open!
Next lay your top piece back onto the card. With a paper piercer, poke a hole in the first scallop and pierce throug all 3 layer of paper. Place a brad into the hole, not closing the brad real tight. Now you should be able to swing your card open from the top to reveal the inside of your card. That is all there is to it!!!
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!!
The Wizardry collection from Moxxie is perfect for scrapping those Harry Potter themed pictures. This layout is obviously from my son's birthday and it was a lot of fun! Among other things, we had Wand Selection (an arts and crafts activity), Potions Class (making milkshakes with mix-ins!), and a Quidditch Match (a Snitch-shaped pinata that they broke with brooms!).
With Halloween just around the corner, I think it is perfect for little wizards and witches, too! I want to share how I created the frame. It is a super easy cut down from Moxxie'sWizard Wares paper:
Using a craft knife, carefully cut along the edge of the paper following the frame design.
Remove the center and set it aside because we will use it later. At his point we have this 12"x12" frame:
I measured 6.5" from the right edge and made a cut on the top and bottom:
I overlapped and adhered the paper so it looked like this:
To shorten the frame, I cut 8.5" down from the top edge, overlapped and adhered the paper to create the final frame:
Remember the piece of paper we set aside? When you flip it over it has a really cool checkerboard pattern accented with wands. I cut it down and used it to back the paper frame.
You can adjust the measurements to create whatever size frame you need.
Good luck and be sure to share your creations on Moxxie's Facebook page - we would love to see them!
Hey Moxxie Fans! Rhonda here today to share a project with you on the blog.
Can you believe how quickly Fall has arrived? I just absolutely love this season for so many reasons, the crisp change in the air, the beautiful colors and apples too! I also really love the "Shades of Autumn" collection that Moxxie has.
Our son just recently turned five and can now climb the wall at our gym. I took all of these photos the day after his birthday. When I printed out my collage of the favorites, the "Shades of Autumn" matched perfectly, and I mean... per-fect-ly! I loved that the season connection worked for this page as well. Most of all, I love to take a collection and twist it just a bit. Don't ever feel like you can't use a collection differently than its intended purpose.
I started this page build by selecting my vertical pattern paper strip. I wanted to emulate the feel of the high climbing wall and the motion of the activity is represented by the leaves. From there, I chose the contrasting colors and border punches that I wanted to use for texture. I stitched those layers together and attached them down. Next, I mixed in one of the Moxxie Die Cut sheets. Now, the photo placement was determined and some ruler ribbon was added, followed by the ticket sticker strip. (Say that three times fast, I dare you!!!) I tucked in a calendar journaling circle to capture the date.
Then, I added my flourish die cut, pierced a few holes in between the tickets and tied some hemp and curled the ends. The "Harvesting Memories" sticker was elevated with foam tape, then the ribbon die cuts placed underneath. My title work was the final and fun part of this page! I loved the "Falling" sentiment sticker. I figured the gist of this was "Climbing Up and Falling Down". : ) So, I played on that a bit creating my Climbing as a long vertical title. I chose different alphas and textures to keep the page interesting.
A final touch of bling was added for the perfect finishing touch. I cut it apart and tucked into the design.
It's easy to make the kids smile this Halloween. I little bit of paper, some staples, and candy is really all you need to make the holiday a memorable one! This tutorial will show you how to make "Smartie Spiders" with Moxxie's Midnight Dreary collection.
Step 1. Gather your supplies. You will need cardstock and patterned paper circles, ink, a mini stapler, a tape runner, googly eyes, and Smarties candy.
Step 2. Ink the edges of all the paper circles.
Step 3. Grab six Smarties for each spider. Use the mini stapler to attach the Smarties to the cardstock circles.
Step 4. Apply plenty of adhesive to the back of the Moxxie Midnight Dreary paper circles, and place them directly on top of the cardstock circle.
Step 5. Apply googly eyes and use a marker to make a mouth if desired.
These spiders are not scary at all, they are actually quite cute! Make them for a class party, for Halloween party prizes, or for trick-or-treaters this year!
Hi there, Moxxie fans! I'm here today to show you some fun coffins I made using the All Hallow's EveMoxxie line. This is by far one of my all time fav Halloween lines! It's so fun and spooky with a hint of darkness. Everything Halloween is meant to be.
Don't you just LOVE it? My kids are going to be so excited when they come home and see this spooky display atop the wood stove. Plus I had so much fun creating it. I still have a little paint and glue under my finger nails. That's the sign of a fun project, right?
So let's get down to business.
1- coffins (found at Michaels for a dollar a piece), brush and black paint.
2- Moxxie's All Hallow's Eve papers, mod podge or your fav glue, plastic card of some sort to smooth out the bubbles and your fav Halloween treat. (snickers for me and m&m's for my partner in crime; they did not keep him busy for long)
3- After I got the papers on, I sanded and inked the edges to give them an older feel.
4- Moxxie's All Hallow's Eve die cuts and stickers! They made it so easy. Then I added in some AC thicker products, M's spiders and dollar store skeletons.
Thanks for spookin' it up with me today! I'll leave you with some close ups of each coffin. Enjoy your Halloween festivities!! :)Ange
Hi Moxxie Fans! Moxxie Muse Cathy here with you today!
I just wanted to share some cards with you that I literally made in minutes. I adore Moxxie Die Cuts and Stickers...great designs and you get tons of variety from each collection!
I have love how easy it is to layer and create with the die cuts and stickers....it just makes the new trend of layering so dang easy.
For the cards that I created today I used the following Moxxie collections....Road To Recovery, All Hallow’s Eve and Very Merry Unbirthday.
I want to super stress to you that I really did make these in minutes, I usually stress over my cards and spend way too much time on them, but with Moxxie you just pick out your favorite die cut or sticker, pick out some coordinating card stock and layer away...that’s it, your done!
I added a bit of embossed card stock, bits of bling and twine to these Road To Recovery Cards. I love this color combo, it is one of my favorite looks of the year.
I reach for this collection over and over again. There is just something about it that inspires me to create.
Working with the All Hallow’s Eve collection is almost too easy...amazing designs and perfect spooky colors. This is a must have collection for all you Halloween lovers.
I used Bazzill Swiss Dot Black Pepper Embossed card stock...picked my die cuts and stickers...again made in minutes. Twine, buttons and pins were the finishing touches.
Again, with the Black Swiss Dot Black Pepper Embossed card stock. It may be unusual to use black card stock with a birthday line...but the colors of Very Merry Unbirthday just simply pop when using black card stock. I have used this line for several little people birthday layouts and I have just loved the results, so I had to give it a try with cards...and yep, I love these too!
Again, all I added was twine and flowers.
I and everyone here at Moxxie would love to see what you create with Moxxie Die cuts and Stickers. Please post your creations to our Facebook page, you will be amazed and thrilled with the results of creating Moxxie Made in Minutes Style!
Hi Moxxie fans! Dana here today with a fun tutorial. I love patterned paper! My favorite way to add detail and embellishments to my layouts is through fussy cutting. I love to cut papers apart and rearrange the pieces into my own design. Before buying any piece of paper, I always ask myself, 'Can I cut this
paper?' When I first saw the All Wrapped Up patterned paper from the Very Merry Unbirthday Collection, I immediately thought that it would make a fantastic mask. With some packaging tape, a craft knife and a little patience, my mask vision became a reality!
The first step to turning this fabulous piece of patterned paper into a mask is to cover both the front and the back of the sheet with packaging tape.
Next, use a craft knife to cut out all the blue squares from the patterned paper.
Here is what my finished mask looks like. I left about a 1-inch border around the paper to help add some stability to the mask.
I mixed some ink into a small amount of modeling paste, and using my mask, spread the paste onto the background of my tag. A big advantage to having a mask is that I can add this fantastic pattern to my project in any color I choose!
The Very Merry Unbirthday collection is fun and bold, but this mask can also be used for a soft feminine layout! I used my mask again to create my background pattern, this time using Distress Ink. The Evergreen Bough Distress Ink is a great match to the green in the Forever Family collection. I'm looking forward to using my new mask on more projects and I'll be sure to share them with you!

I created a cone wreath with the All Hallow's Eve paper, added some of the diecuts to embellish it, and hung it in a frame. That frame, I purchased for 50 cents at a garage sale this summer, and spray painted it with a black texture paint that had glitter in it, found at my local hardware store. (The paint was so fun that there are other random objects in my house that are in danger of being spritzed!)
I thought the "Velcome" diecut would be a cute addition to the wreath, welcoming people into my haunted manor, so I layered it with a few of the other diecuts to give it a bit more size. I also took a white colored pencil and just outlined the letters so they'd pop away from the background colors, then sanded the edges of each of the diecuts to give them definition. I love how it turned out!
I used the silhouette from the diecut to place in the center of the wreath. Then I added all the fun "webbing" and plastic spiders!
The dimension of the wreath is great...it pushes away from the wall and frame and is very eye-catching when you come in the front door!
I hope you have a lot of fun along the way! See you next month!
Hello everyone!! Wow...I can't believe that Halloween is going to be here very soon!! I love this time of the year. So I recently got all my Halloween decorations out and got the house all ready to be spooky!! As I was decorating, I kept looking at this simple pumpkin that I had picked up a few years ago on sale and never had time to do much to him.
Don't worry, he's fake...he will never go bad, the best kind to have!! That's when I got thinking...this guy needs a "new" do this year!
So I went to my craft space and grabbed the All Hallow's Eve paper and began cutting it into 3"x3" squares...all varitety of patterns. Once these were all cut, I got out my mod podge and a sponge brush. I applied the pieces of paper onto the pumpkin with the mod podge until the pumpkin was all covered with paper. This was a VERY messy step, and that is why I wasn't able to get photos as I did this process. Who knows what else would have gotten mod podged!
Once the pumpkin was all covered in paper, I then set it aside to dry. Once dried, I applied some gem flourishes and glued black tulle around the stem.
I really like how it turned out!! This pumpkin is no longer a plain guy. He is now "Moxxie-fied"!! Thanks for stopping by and checking out my All Hallow's Eve pumpkin!!!
