Thank you for the opportunity to be a guest CSI judge. I really enjoyed the variety of crafts from all the amazing designers, and I love everyone’s individual take on a common holiday theme.

All the projects were beautiful and are a great inspiration for new and experienced crafters alike. Thank you again!




Let’s see how she did.

 Judge’s comments in BOLD!




Fall Mantel 2013 by Suzanne at Pieced Pastimes

I love the classic, rustic feel of this mantle. The neutral gold, silver and white colors of this vignette are perfect for a formal, non-traditional Halloween setting.


Halloween Door 2013 by Priscillas

Featuring the classic colors of Halloween (orange, purple, black and gray) this Halloween Door Wreath will add the perfect finishing touch to your holiday decor.

Grapevine Garland Pumpkin Wreath by Purple Hues and Me 

This is the perfect wreath if you’re looking for a dimensional wreath that will stretch your decor from Halloween through Thanksgiving.

Glowing Halloween Silhouette Mantel by The Kim Six Fix 

 I love how Kim took her mantle to a new level adding dimension with 3D elements and glowing lights to create an eerie ambiance.

3D Paper Haunted Scenes by I Love Doing All Things Crafty

As a paper crafter, i admire Ilda for creating this fun and festive House of Haunts. The addition of lights brings the entire house to life.

Halloween Mantle by Crafty in Crosby

For those who love banners, Crafting in Crosby shows us how to create a uniquely beautiful mixed media banner featuring paper, ribbon and more this Halloween season. I love how the large size of this banner makes it shine off the details of the stone fireplace.


Halloween Mantel 1 by Second Chance to Dream

Love the cute spider and web. Very cute mantel!!!
