Well, I guess I missed getting my post up on the 1st, LOL! But, better late than never... I still haven't managed to get a pic of the candy that I am offering up, mainly because I keep adding to the pile! Right now there is a Glue Glider Pro, a super cute T-Shirt, some Cuttlebug folders and dies.... and more! I will try to get a pic of the pile up in a bit but for now I wanted to post my latest project and give you the details for my givaway!
I saw an idea on the Peachy Keen blog a few weeks ago made by Mandy Ferg. She created a big "BOO" sign with paper mache letters and Echo Park Paper's Happy Halloween line. You can find it ON SALE right now in the Scrapbook Chicks online store! Well, I LOVED the idea so I went to JoAnn's to look for some letters. Well, the wood letters happened to be on sale and I LOVED the font so I bought them! Then I painted them black. When they were dry I unsealed that pack of Echo Park Paper and got to work! *note: I still need to add the hanger to the back
This took me a L O N G time to assemble but I think it was worth it! I used my Paper Doll Dress Up and Happy Hauntings Cricut Cartridges for the cuts. The Haunted House is part of the Echo Park Papers challenge this month and I think it works so well on this project!
I hand cut the black cloud and used a circle punch for the moon. The bats, witch and pumpkin are all cuts from Happy Hauntings.
The spider web is cut from Paper Doll Dress Up and Frankenstein, his bride, the spider and the bat are all from Happy Hauntings. I used clear embossing powder on the bat and spider and added the googly eyes.
I think this one might be my favorite letter... When I was trying to decide what character to add to this one I took my inspiration from the paper, bats = Dracula! Once I had him cut I decided that he should be in a spooky graveyard. Once I assembled that I added some "stars" in the sky with my i-rock tool. It didn't seem quite finished yet so I added the two bats whose eyes are also i-rock stones. I curled the wings a bit so they would really take flight! All cuts on this one are also from Happy Hauntings
My original intent was that these would sit out on a table but once I had it assembled I saw that I liked the way it looked hanging better so I added some ribbon to hang it and I LOVE it!
