Around my area people will have a party for the kids so they can go around trick or treating together. This creates a bit of safety in numbers and also they give the neighbours warning so that there is plenty of fun for all those participating.
With this in mind I created this cute little invite.
I used Trick or Treat Sweets stamp set to stamp on the 1¼” square tiles. The corners have been removed from the tiles with the Corner rounder. My one tip for those making invites is when you finish them add a piece of magnetic tape to the back of it. This allows the recipient to place it on the fridge.
I have also created a double page spread using the Nevermore Paper Packet. When deciding on a design concept I look at the photo’s I want to use rather than trying to match photos after. I have one photo I will be cutting into 3 parts. With that in mind I went hunting through the how to programs for a design that I found suitable. My final decision was to use 1a Master for the left side and 6h Alternate on the right from the Reflections How To Book. I liked these two designs together because there was an element that flowed from one page to another giving it continuity. For that element I decided to use the Green Shimmer Trim. It is a new product and works wonderfully with the colours of this pack.
I have used the Sanding Kit on all card stock. I wanted the misty/old look that is associated with Halloween and this tool gives these pieces that look. I just love it don’t you? I also do this on old photos to help blend them into the design. The Halloween title is from the Artiste Cartridge, and the cobweb corners are from the Artbooking Cartridge. To finish off these pages I have used the Nevermore Compliments and Slate Diagonal striped Ribbon.
