completed scarecrow svg projectIt’s November, the fall colors have changed (depending on where you are, your trees might already be completely bare) and now Thanksgiving is coming up quickly. This month Aaron has come up with some super fun free SVG downloads that you can download for free. The designs include:

  • scarecrow – you can put on a card, scrapbook layout, or use it in your home decorating. Richelle completed this project (and she loved it), as you can see in the image here.
  • silly phrase t-shirt – “Get your fat pants ready.”
  • A set of couple’s turkey t-shirts – for him and her!
  • And check out last year’s most popular design, the Thanksgiving tree decor project.

Every month, we also have a new design that you can download from the order confirmation page if you buy something from the CraftDirect.com online store. We have all the solid-colored paper and supplies you need to make these projects happen. Here are some great fall/Thanksgiving collections:

Harry Potter-Themed Party Decor

9-3/4 platform party decor projectDid you know that CraftDirect is an international company? Chi Lozano is one of our employees in the Philippines, and she happens to be a savvy paper crafter. She used her electronic die-cutting machine to make a Harry Potter-themed birthday party for her 1-year old son. When she showed us her work, we loved it so much we asked her to take our readers on this adventure. Enjoy:

Welcome to Hogwarts

This Harry Potter inspired party-themed celebration is nothing short of magical. And there’s no better way to send your guests off to the wizarding world than by escorting them onto the platform 9 ¾ platform to the Hogwarts Express!

As the guests entered the Great Hall (aka our living room), banners from Gryffindor, Slytherin, Hufflepuff, and Ravenclaw houses swayed as the cold wind filled up the room. Continue reading “Harry Potter-Themed Party Decor” »

Halloween Craft Projects 2018: Layouts, Cards, Treat Bags, etc.

layout made using simple stories happy halloweenby Richelle Naegle

It’s October and now I feel like I can officially start creating for Halloween, and I love to make spooky and cute crafts. This year I think I got a little carried away with the scrapbook layouts! There are just too many fun Halloween paper collections to choose from this year. I couldn’t decide which one I wanted to get, so I think I got them all, including:

This first scrapbook layout was not created using any of those product lines, I actually went with the Simple Stories Happy Halloween Collection Kit. This is a perfect solution if you just want to make a couple pages (or a bunch of cards). It came with a sheet of SN@P Cards that are easy to add as an embellishment to your scrapbook pages.

This next layout I made is a design you can download for free (check out the October downloads post here). The paper collection I used is called Hocus Pocus, designed by Echo ParkI absolutely love this layout that Aaron designed. I had to make it, and it was so easy with the collection kit!

It’s been a while since I have had the chance to craft, and there have been so many new craft products released that I have been dying to try.
