Welcome to my NEW BLOG!

For many years my projects could be found at my previous blog - www.fatcatcreations.blogspot.com. Since my business has evolved and is now known as Cindi McGee - Behind These Eyes™ instead of Cindi Bisson - Fat Cat Creations - I thought this was the perfect time to launch a new blog. Since I've been on this creative journey for over 16 years - I have a LOT of project links out there in cyberworld! If you are looking for a particular project you have found on Pinterest, Facebook, FaveCrafts, HomeTalk, Twitter, etc. and the link is not working for you, please feel free to email me at cdjb11@yahoo.com and I'll be sure to get you the new link to the instructions. Have a creative day and remember to DARE TO BE DIFFERENT!

Ink Happy Halloween stamp with Pepper inkpad and stamp onto scrap orange cardstock.  Trim around verse.  Ink edges of verse with Pepper inkpad.  

Use Zip-Dry adhesive to mount smaller strip of purple glitter cardstock inside card.  Mount Happy Halloween centered on purple paper. 

Use fingertip and Pepper inkpad to gently smudge ink over solid surface of inside card and over verse. 


Mount larger strip of purple paper to center of front of card. 

Use Dazzle-Tac adhesive to mount purple crystal to right side of purple strip of front of card, approximately 1 1/2" from edge.  

Mount orange crystal adjacent to purple crystal to create head of spider. 

Cut 8 pieces of black crystal sheet to 4 crystal strips.  Mount 4 on each side of purple crystal to create spider legs.
