Quick Quotes - Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween! For those of you who celebrate, I have created some fun eye candy for you using Quick Quotes products along with Helmar's adhesives! What a great combination! With our blog hop this week, there are so many amazing projects from the Quick Quotes Deisgn team, you are not going to want to miss any of them! Besides, you need to visit all of them to be eligible to win a prize! You can click HERE to get started!

Look at all the things I was able to create! I absolutely adore Quick Quotes Halloween Paper line! Not only are the patterns fun and bright, but they also have all of these cute sayings that work so well on projects as well as layouts!

This Boo sign was very easy to create. Let me show you how....

 I started with chipboard letters. (I picked mine up from Hobby Lobby.) I used the Helmar V2 spray adhesive. I realize this is meant to be used with vellum, but it worked great for this project! I sprayed each letter with adhesive and laid the patterned paper over the top.

 I cut the excess paper off.

 The next step is to sand the edges with a file. It leaves a perfect edge!

Quick Quotes PowderPuff Chalking Ink in Midnight Confessions was perfect for inking up the edges of each letter!

Finally, I thought these cute little accordion flowers made a great embellishment! They added both color and dimension to the sign! I couldn't resist adding a cute little spider gem sticker in the middle of the orange flower! I used Helmar's 450 Quick Dry Adhesive to adhere them to the letter. 

This was my 2 minute project that I adore! (Seriously... 2 minutes!) I took an empty wine bottle (I loved the green color of it!) and added a label. I cut out a square in white and then used my Spellbinder labels to cut the striped paper and the Blood Donors label. I just layered them and added them to the bottle. Helmar's Vellum Adhesive worked well for this project too!) So simple but it really adds to our Halloween home decor! 

I had this plain paper mache coffin with my Halloween decorations. I decided to bring some life to the coffin by adding some striped papers to the side and decorating the top! I also cut up some of the fun Halloween riddles that are part of the Halloween 500 sheet and scattered them among the eyeballs. The kids have loved reading them to each other!

The "Candy is Dandy" is part of Quick Quotes vellum collection... how perfect is that for a candy dish?! Again, the Helmar V2 spray adhesive worked perfectly! I added a few layers of patterned paper and some trim and it was complete! 

I just love these cute little mummy bottles in their darling carrier! They really add a lot of personality to the parties! This project is so easy to do... let me show you how!

I started with the empty Izze carrier. I used PowderPuff Chalking Ink in Midnight Confessions to ink around all the edges/corners. 

I then traced the edges of the box on patterned paper, cut it out and inked all the edges. 

For this project I used Helmars Quick Dry 450. I was so impressed at how well it held the paper to the slippery surface of the carrier! I then added a quote and some trim and my carrier was done! 

How can you not love those eyes?!  lol!! The bottles are the easiest part. Adhere the eyes to the bottle and then use strips of cheesecloth which are wrapped around the bottle.

If you are celebrating Halloween tonight, I hope you and your family have a fun and safe time!
