Halloween Family

Hello everybody,  it´s Evelyn here today. I want to show you my second project for our All Things Spooky challenge this month.

I wanted to make a piece in vintage style, where you won´t see the scary point at first sight.
If you want to see how I put all together, please visit my blog, there you´ll find some steps x step photos.
There are some days left to join in the Spooky fun, so I hope you´ll find the time to show your work with us!
Thanks for your visit today!

Halloween cards with haunted houses

Here are my second pieces of our November Challenge. Why two? Because I nearly throw away the second card in my picture. I made a mistake which ruined the left corner of my card. But later I had an idea to cover it with a big pumpkin :-) So I have two cards and on my blog I can give you a tutorial. Happy Halloween!

Fright Night

I am thrilled to be back this month and sharing one of my most favourite Halloween makes! This little page in my smallest journal has the smallest Tim Holtz book cover as the background - I thought it looked like a wrought iron door (does it?!) and lots of PaperArtsy stamps to accompany my little chap. For details on how I made this, please pop over to my blog.

Spooky pink shrine

Welcome to my Friday inspiration project for the Spooky challenge we have going this month.

There are some apothecary bottles with nasty poisonous things in them, a ghoulish image and a rat coming to have a nosy around in case there's anything for him. Pink you say? Yes pink for a change. There are more details and photos at Bumblebees and Butterflies for you to peruse.

Have a happy weekend.

Spooks Shrine

Hello everyone, Debs here with my second piece for this months challenge, all things Spooky. 
I wanted to show the Shrine lit up with the candle, but it does look rather dark, or is it meant to be dark...
To see how this all came together please pop to my blog where there is tutorial.
Keep creative!

Hello Everyone! and welcome to my second project this month for our All Things Spooky Challenge!

I have really dug out some old dies for this vintage style Halloween tag! Sometimes the old dies are still the favourites and I never tire of these two wonderful dies which were among the first ones I purchased.

Do join me over on my blog if you would like to find out a little more and a link to a tutorial for creating this resist background. 

Have a great weekend and I hope you find some crafting time and join us in our challenge!

Halloween gift tags

Hello everyone, it's Jane back today to share the second of my Halloween tags. Autumn is really making its presence felt now with colder days and longer, darker evenings. My 2nd tag is not dripping blood (!)as the first one was, but has a more cute feel. This one is for my nearly 3 year old Granddaughter, Daisy. She, like my daughter and myself, genuinely loves spiders.

If you would like to see the step by step my tag do pop on over here  to my blog where a spooky warm welcome awaits you. I also made some matching gift wrap to show you.

You still have plenty of time to enter our "All things spooky" challenge here at Country View and we are already seeing some terrifying  wonderful work from you all...keep them coming! 

Bye for now
