Heeeey there! It’s day two of my Fa-BOO-Lous Halloween week and I’ve got some amazing projects to share today! Some of my fellow Carta Bella design team members joined me in showing off Carta Bella’s AMAZING All Hallows’ Eve collection! I just love, love, LOVE this collection and I’m so happy these wonderful designers joined me today!
Don’t forget to check out yesterday’s post along with the Ghostess with the Mostess design challenge! There’s a fun prize up for grabs along with a freebie SVG file from Designs on Cloud 9 if you decide to use it! There’s also a discount code from a wonderful sponsor, My Thoughts Exactly. Use code MTELUVHLCW for 15% off your stamp order! Yay!
Ok, let’s get this party started! You’re gonna just love these projects and I hope they get your wheels turning and get you inspired for some Halloween crafting. Come on now, GET EXCITED!!!
First up is yours truly! Ok.. Soooo… I kinda cheated here. This project was shared on the Carta Bella blog the other day. But hey, if you didn’t see it then just pretend I didn’t say that, lol! I created some spooktacular treat envelopes with the string tie envelope file from Lori Whitlock. I edited the file by adding on an oval shape to create a window so you can see the treats inside!
See the bling? Those ‘crystals’? I added those with my Imaginisce irock tool. One of my favorite tools to add some ‘glam’ to Halloween projects.. And YOU could win one in todays prize! Keep on reading and then leave a comment to enter!
Now for my fabulous guest designers! Please visit each of their blogs and see just how amazing they are! I feel honored to be designing with them on the Carta Bella team!
First up is Jan. I’m also on the Sizzix DT with her, and just ADORE her work. She’s quite the designer, for sure! Check out the beautiful mask she made. Jaw dropping gorgeous! I want if for my own house! LOL.. No really. Jan, you know you want to send it to me! I can trade you a kid!
Jan said, “I purchased a paper mache mask from Michael’s and covered it with All Hallow’s Eve. Made some flowers, (all Sizzix of course!) paper branches, added a few spiders, feathers, bling and a stick.” Please take a moment to stop by Jan’s blog and say hello! PLUS she’s also giving away a Carta Bella kit (Alphabet Junction)!
Is that anything other than amazing?.. really! *swoon*
Next up is the always fabulous Patricia! Everything she makes is amazing! (To only have that touch, right?!) She created this super fun coffin box using a cutting file designed by Lori Whitlock. I just LOVE the spooky surprise once you open the coffin!
Patricia says, “This little coffin design by Lori Whitlock from the Silhouette Studio store was too irresistible to pass up. I removed the cross from the front of the coffin only because I wanted to decorate the front with the die cut spider web, stickers, tag, and twine. I was going for the “don’t open this” kind of feel to it. For the inside, I put baby powder on the back of the skeleton sticker, and attached him to a curled up piece of wire, so he kind of “floats.” I have this along with the tree and skeleton votives on my mantle…Carta Bella All Hallow’s Eve is perfect for adding Halloween decor to your home.”
Please stop by Patricia’s blog, leave some love and you’ve got to browse around and see more of her work! You’ll be glad you did!
So cool! Open it up and what do you find?..
Love that Carta Bella skeleton sticker! Totally fun, right?..
Moving on to ANOTHER super amazing designer, Pam. I mean really.. how am I even on the same DT as these ladies?
Pam said, “A lot of Halloween collections have purple and green in them, which wouldn’t match my photo, so when I saw the neutral color palette of All Hallow’s Eve, I knew it would be perfect for this photo of my little guy from last Halloween. I added the chipboard banner which featured words such as creepy, spooky, etc. but I felt like there was too much text on the page, so I covered up the words with little strips of patterned paper and stitched down the middle of them!” If you could take the time to stop by Pam’s blog and say hello and check out the rest fo her work, that would be awesome!
Pam has created a DARLING layout! And the title is perfect, “So cute, it’s scary!”.. How adorable is this picture?
I mean, wouldn’t YOU give that cute puppy extra candy? Ooof course! (Hey, that’s a great idea! Cute kids in super cute costumes = more candy.. and what does that mean? More chances of getting chocolate for mom to steal.. right? Riiiight?..)
So, I’ve shown you treats, decor, a layout.. time for a CARD!
This card was made by.. yet again.. another Fa-BOO-Lous designer from the Carta Bella team! Man, we are workin’ the All Hallow’s Eve over here, aren’t we? This totally cool card featuring my favorite skeleton sticker was designed by Jen! Say hello to Jen and visit her blog. You better believe she’s got some amazing projects there!
Jen said, “Carta Bella collections make it super easy to create the perfect holiday card! Everything coordinates so seamlessly together. I started this card by stitching down some strips of patterned paper, then added a ribbon. A few chipboard embellishments, stickers and a brad and voila! A perfectly spooky Halloween card with the All Hallow’s Eve line.”
Who wouldn’t love to receive that card?
Last, but certainly not least, is the sweet and talented Natasja! She’s super talented and she has created this awesome altered embroidery hoop (A project on my ‘to-do’ list!). How creative is this? She didn’t skip a beat and it’s full of little details! Love the pop of green here. Be sure to head on over to HER BLOG, she’s having a little giveaway as well! WHOO HOO!!
Natasja said, “I created this piece using a vintage embroidery ring as a base filled with a piece of patterned paper. I used some green fabric which gives a lot of dimension while layering all the fun stickers and cardstock stickers that come with the All Hallow’s Eve line. Hang a piece like this in your hall and it will be a fun welcome during Halloween….or it can be a fun little gift!”
