A Halloween "Book" with Richele Christiansen

 I am following Richele Christiansem's blog,
to re-create her great Halloween configuration box. When you see it on her blog, you will realize how cool it is. She started on Monday of this week, and so far (I am writing on Thursday) there have been two lessons. In the first one, we cut the front of the book in the shape of a rickety house, as designed by Tim Holtz--Richele has a link to the pattern--and painted the box. In the second session, we covered the inner boxes...again, Richele has all the dimensions and directions...
I think when the project is broken up like this it is very doable. I will keep adding to mine and you can see the progress in the store...and who knows, maybe I'll even get more pics up here.

Getting into Gear for Halloween

We have been receiving all sorts of cool Halloween stuff...great for card-making, scrapbooks, and assorted other projects. Here is a card I made with some new arrivals. I used some paper from Carta Bella, "full moon" from the Happy Haunting set.. It has the moon in the upper right corner. The tag is a ranger #8 manila tag, sprayed with Dylusions bright fucshia, and orange. Stamp in Hero black and put white embossing powder is not really embossing ink, so it only partially holds...a good effect. The skeleton is Memory Box's Dancing Skeleton." The black grid is the lattice from Dee's Distinctively.
