My Mind's Eye Lost And Found Halloween Mini Album

I made this album for a swap and I used paper from My Mind's Eye.  I also made die cut frames using the Happy Haunting cartridge.  The album measures 6"x6", so I cut the frames at 5".  The spider, haunted house, apothecary bottle and gargoyle were from the October 31st cartridge and were cut at 3 1/2".  I used cardstock from Core'dinations and some glittered black, yellow and green cardstock as well.  I used silk flowers from Prima and handmade the smaller flowers using a die from Cheery Lynn.  The black pearl flourish on the cover was from Prima. I also made some flourishes using black enamel accents, and added more pearls using Viva Decor Pearl pen.  The pumpkin stickers are from Jolee's.  I added a skeleton and black tulle to embellish the wire binding.

Wizard Of Oz Scarecrow

My mother-in-law loves scarecrows and she always has one for Halloween, so I decided to make this card for her.  It's Mother-in-law Day on the 28th of this month, and our design team theme is to make a card using fall colors and three embellishments.  I used cardstock from Core'dinations' Graphic 45 line, sanded it, added strips of paper from Me And My Big Ideas and a scarecrow image from Graphic 45's The Magic Of Oz.  My three embellishments were: crinkle ribbon, a Prima flower and a feather that I used as a leaf.

My Mind's Eye Gothic Wall Plaque

I altered a wooden plaque from the dollar store using paper from My Mind's Eye.  The spider web, candle and tree were cut at 3 1/2" using the October 31st cartridge.  I added a sparkly spider and a skeleton for a more macabre feel.

A Witch's Hat

I decided to modify the original top hat template that I had and instead of a cylinder, I made a cone out of a 9" circle and voila!  I have a Gothic witch's hat. I folded 1/4" tabs at the bottom part of the cone outward and sandwiched (sand witch? lol!) them between the two paper "doughnuts".

I used paper from GCD Studio's Paris Nights line.  The black pearls are from Prima.  I added black flowers that I had cut using a die from Cherry Lynn, centered with  "pearls" made using Viva Decor Pearl pen in cream.  Tulle, orange and green feathers and a skeleton cameo were used as additional embellishments.

Happy Haunting!

I made a trick or treat bag and a tag for our Halloween challenge at My Sheri Crafts.  I used paper from DCWV for the bag and the tag was made using paper from Graphic 45's Hallowe'en in Wonderland.  I made a pocket to hold the tag by fanfolding a piece of paper and added a bow made of Baker's twine as an accent piece.  A flower from Petaloo, black crystals, a skeleton leaf and bat trim from Recollections were used to embellish the tag.   Black tulle was added for the bag's handle and the tag.
