I wanted to start by showing you my favorite project. There was a round silver pan in the box and I knew as soon as I opened it what I wanted to do. I painted it black and turned it into a door hanger for Halloween.
Originally, I was going to make it a chalkboard that I could write messages on, but I thought that might prove too tempting to those prone to tricks on Halloween so I cut out Trick or Treat from this cute polka dot paper (polka dots are my fave!) and used the negative to cover the center of the pan. I also attached a picture of my kids to one of the included magnets and made a little sign I can use if I run out of candy.
I also die cut some leaves from the other papers and embellished the pan with those and a straw.
I also embellished this cute acrylic treat bag. :)
I used the ghost and spooktastic stamps from the exclusive set included. The ghost is attached to wire and another ghost is glued to the back. I thought this would be such a cute gift for a coworker or teacher filled with candy.
When I saw the magnets I thought of the blots on Frankenstein's head so I decided to create him using a mason jar. :) The eyes for both jars come from the chipboard alphabet included. I also used some of the leaves I diecut to dress up the inside of the jars. I wanted to include shredded black cardstock, but my shredder gave out seconds before I could put anything into it so I improvised and died some paper I had already shredded black to stuff the jars. These would make such cute gifts stuffed with candy. The eyebrows and scar are cut from the cardstock and the stitched mouth is cut from the skeleton. :)
A card to give with some of those candy treats being passed around in October. :) I cut out two moons and stitched a smaller moon to the top card.
These pictures are from a fall photo mini and my kids were rotten! lol They were eating the props and running from the photographer. At the time, I was upset, but now it makes me laugh because she really captured the essence of that age. :)
I covered the layout in paint drips and dots of Glossy Accents to add a bit more texture and color.
Okay, more tomorrow.
