I had purchased this wooden tree last fall. I painted it black and added some fun Halloween die cuts. My daughter just loves it!
The trick or treat sign was also plain wood. I painted it black as well. I then added 3 colors of glitter! I just think glitter is so fun – it adds a fun touch!!! Ribbon is another favorite of mine so I added lots to the wire!
The cards came together so easily! For the Haunted House card I used a large die cut, added a smaller one as well as some Halloween stickers. The fence was made by a punch.
For the witch card I used two patterned papers tied a ribbon on the seam. The large die cut has some dimension with 3D adhesive and the title uses basic letter stickers.
I hope this inspires you to dig out your Halloween decorations and to get started!!!! Boo to you!!!

When I need a scrap – I just pull out the drawer and find what I need.
When I’m done working on a page, if I have scraps big enough to save, it is really fast to pull out the drawer and throw them in. I store them under my countertop. It takes some space, but it is worth it for me. I can turn around from my desk and easily access them.

For this project I used a black picture frame with 8-4"x6" openings and removed the glass. I cut out 8-4"x6" pieces of patterned paper and added a few embellishments. Then I cut out 31 small pieces (1 3/4" x 1 1/8") of patterned paper to use as the pockets. On those pieces I added some random rub-on numbers for the countdown days and inked the edges with black ink. To attach the pockets to the paper I added a thin line of adhesive along the sides and bottom of the back side of the paper, then I put them on the patterned paper and stuck a popsicle stick in the top half to form the pocket. After all the pockets were attached I cut the popsicle stick down to about 2" and painted it black then added a cute ghost to the top of the stick as our marker for counting down the days. To finish it off I added a couple more embellishments to the paper and to the frame.
