Hi there sweet friends.  Today we are introducing a mini collection around a friendly Halloween Theme.  This is my very first venture into Halloween and it’s nice to create a little bit of whimsy.  Create some BOOtiful creations with a new collection from Amazing Paper Grace – The Halloween Collection.  It’s super SPOOKY cute!

The Halloween Collection Details
This Halloween Collection includes three thin metal die sets They can be used separately or mix and match with each set in the collection. It goes especially well with the popular Charming Cottage Box Die Set as you will see while hopping through.  The inspiration for the set was indeed the Charming Cottage.  I simply wanted something to bundle up goodies to deliver during the holidays.  Since the Cottage is so easy to put together, these add-on sets are a great way to extend the life of a die in your stash!

The Halloween Collection sets used!

I’m introducing Amazing Paper Grace S4-1069 – Nested Clipped Squares by Spellbinders.  It’s a great year around shape and you will notice that by utter coincidence it also fits with Amazing Paper Grace  S5-422 Rosa Diamante, which I have also used on my card.

My Project for Today:

For my project today using the Nested Clipped Squares I went for a vintage Halloween look with blacks, reds, and vintage type.  Of course, it had to be a teeny bit elegant.  I die cut Rosa Diamante and layered it up with the Nested Clipped Squares and finished off the with Hey Boo die cut words from Amazing Paper Grace S3-405 Spooky Boo by Spellbinders.

3D Vignette Phone Details

We’ve spent all month making funny phone jokes and puns!  Do you realize this little relic is something that most teenyboppers haven’t seen in person?  Just as with the typewriter, the phone is an iconic part of our history and technology.  Ever evolving, this phone will always be a part of our coming of age.  During the month we played “I Spy” to peek into how folks were using this die and this is what we found:

  1. A shaker card
  2. A notepad holder
  3. A mini 4-page scrapbook (which will hold Instax pictures)
  4. A gift card holder
  5. A card with multiple sentiments
  6. A basket

We’re sure there are more, but in the meantime, here is some additional inspiration to pique your creativity.

My Project Today using 3D Vignette Telephone

My project today takes minutes.  For my project I decided to take one of the many sketch books I have and create a Phone Book.  Yes, even though I keep my phone contacts in my phone digitally, I love having a place (a backup) where I have manually written down numbers.  Plus I don’t want every number in my phone – just the important ones.  In my manual phone book I’ll put my favorite dry cleaner, some of my stores, etc.

To make, I simply die cut a phone and applied it to printed acetate.  I did it that way because I wanted the beauty of the linen book to shine through.  I put my die cut phone on the sketch book with foam adhesive.

Designer Tip:   When working with fabric and clear acetate, it’s a-okay to use a line adhesive like ScorTape to adhere acetate to fabric.

    Dear Becca,
    I can clearly see why you used the word, proud, to capture your feelings about your new Design Team. These creations give us truly inspirational work to capture our imaginations. Your phone directory is a perfect companion for this set of dies and is so beautiful, too. I love the cranberry and gold combination and
    it photographed stunningly against the rose embroidered cloth.
    Wishing you nothing but the best!
    Love & blessings,
