Spooky greetings to you, and thanks for stopping by. This month the Creative Circle Design Team got to work with Liz’ amazing Haunted House pattern! Hope you were as impressed with Fran’s project as I was; here’s my version:
The base was cut out from Basic Black cardstock, and then decorated with Happy Haunting designer series paper. If you look close, the pattern on my house is actually little bats! The floating ghosts were fussy cut from a sheet in this pack as well. And how about that Black Glimmer Paper in the center?! You can kind of see how sparkly it is, but you should see this stuff for yourself – it’s gorgeous! The decorations on top of the roof are pieces of a Spider Web Doily that I cut up and glued in place. One side is black and the other is white. Yes, I know the ‘iron’ decorations should be black, but it’s the artist’s prerogative to change the color to suit the design, right?
As darling as this Haunted House design is by itself, it is actually functional as well. There’s a slot in the back to hold a set of cards! What a cute Halloween gift this would make! And here’s my house with it’s set of cards:
So, now that you’ve had a chance to see this pattern in action, I just know you want to make one of your own. If you head over to Liz’ online store, the cut files for the house sell for $6.99. Along with the files, Liz has created a video showing you how to assemble your house. Get started on yours today!
Now, if you’ve been joining us on our blog hops, you know that each of us always has something to give away to one lucky reader and this month is no exception. Just leave me a comment about your favorite Halloween treat, and on October 19th, I will pick a name at random. The winner will receive, via mail, pre-cut base pieces to build a house with. The decorating will be left up to you!
Thanks so much for stopping by. It’s time to send you over to Sandy for her version of the house!
