Halloween Freebie!

Hi all...Autumn is my favorite time of the year. I love the fall colors and cooler weather, it brings back fond memories of my childhood.  I loved raking the fallen leaves into great piles and then running and jumping in them, laughing with delight. Trick or treating with my friends was another one, and coming home with a huge sack of candy that lasted until Christmas. Our family always carved our pumpkins a few days before halloween and set them out on our porch, that erie glow still warms my heart today.
 We still love to decorate for fall, now it is for my grandchildren's delight. This Halloween my Grandkiddo's are close by and we will be able to see them all dressed up in their costumes. Oh what fun! Hopefully, this will be a special time of year for them too.
To help celebrate the season, I have created a cute little
for your enjoyment.
All the instructions are included on the page. It is quite easy to assemble and will make a fun goodie bag to give to your friends and family. Happy Haunting!....Laurie

Easy Christmas Stocking Pocket!

Here's a fun Christmas project that is easy to make! It will make a wonderful Christmas ornament... just fill it with your favorite treat or gift could  make a great gift tag too...Just add your personalization and you are all set! Hmmmmm....I was thinkin'...that this would make a cute Snowman soup kit...just put the cocoa packet in the pocket with the candy cane then punch a hole and tie on a little bag with the mini marshmallows...I'll have to work on that one! Well anyway...Here's the instructions, have fun!

Supplies: Scissors, glue stick, Exacto knife, coordinating scrapbook paper and the stocking graphic (from

1. Open your favorite design software and insert the stocking graphic onto the page. I size the image to about 8 1/2" tall x 5" wide. You will need to do any personalization now. Print out on presentation paper.

2. Cut out the stocking, leaving 1/4" of white around the edge. Then use the Exacto knife to cut on the black line for the opening of the stocking (see example).

3. Apply the glue all around the edge, about 1/2" wide. Make sure that you don't glue the pocket closed. Place the stocking onto the coordinating scrapbook paper and press firmly around the edges to seal. Let dry.

4. Cut out the stocking again, this time leaving just a little of the white would be the time to jazz it up a bit by adding some sparklies if you want!  When it's dry, punch a hole and add a ribbon for hanging...fill  with some Christmas goodies...enjoy!!

Wow! Has It Been That Long???????

It has been a long & busy summer and it's about time that I updated my blog.

I have been taking care of my grandchildren during the day...ages 5, 4 & 2...Boy, do they keep me hopping...It has been many years since I played with play dough, sidewalk chalk & bubbles...To say the least, it has been an adventure. One, that makes this Grammy feel very old by the end of the day...I am totally wiped out by the time their Mom comes to pick them up!

I'm sorry to say that I have not had much time to work on any new art for PcCrafter. It's hard to find the time between blowing bubbles and baking cookies...LOL ...The two year old does take nice long naps in the afternoon and the 5 year old started kindergarten last week...I just have to keep the 4 year old busy... If I can't work in a whole creatable, maybe I can do a fun fall freebie for my blog...hmmmm...what a great idea!

My Sister has had some major life changes too and has relocated to the wonderful city of Seattle Washington...She is now settled in and back to creating her fun artwork. Check out her newest sets at She has a new birthday art set, some wonderful sunflowers and a couple of cute halloween printable kits...just in time for Halloween crafting!
