Wow its October already! Once September comes around I swear the time speeds up! We start getting excited for the slightly cooler weather, the outdoors activities like football, apple picking and sitting by the fire. October of course means the holidays are quickly approaching. Halloween will be here before we know it!
During October I have some classes in Ellenboro, Kings Mountain and a To Go class for my nonlocal stampers. I also have a Facebook Party planned, so make sure to rsvp to that at on my Facebook page Hope Paper Creations by Britney Vanderlaan. Let’s get started on holiday prep without the stress! I hope you can attend one of my events this month. If none of the dates work for your schedule email me about hosting your own private event.
I don’t do much Halloween wise but I was just in some fun training called Creative Convention by Ronda Wade and we focused on the Holiday Catalog. I got the Make & Takes kit and there was a couple Halloween projects. I changed up the stamp set since I didn’t have the one they used. Check out the two cards we created that are Halloween themed.
This card is easy and fun to make! It has a Basic Black card base. The embossed layer is Lemon Lime Twist. Then we have a 1 1/4″ Fresh Fig embossed circle and a 2″ circle of Garden Green designer series paper from the Merry Little Christmas pack. Then a Whisper White oval and I stamped and punched out the Halloween sentiment from Labels to Love stamp set. I just love that stamp set! It has sentiments for so many holidays!
This next halloween card is using punched paper to create a bat! How cute right?! You use circle punches to cut the bottom of the wings as well as punch out the head. I didn’t add a sentiment to this card. I decided to leave it simple. The designer series paper strip is from Spooky Nights pack. Do you love the Basic Black shimmer ribbon as much as I do?
Halloween cards can be fun to give kids in your family or anyone really. Everyone enjoys some Happy Mail instead of just bills in the mail!
Which card do you like more? Tell me in the comments!
Have a great Thursday!
