If you love Halloween, you came to the right place!

First up we have a layout from Designer Kate Nolan-Denham:
Halloween is one of my favorite times of year!  Definitely a time to for me to be imaginative and have fun.  The Halloween layout I am sharing today shows a fun way to use Core’dinations Kraft-Core Seasonal Impressions as a fantastic background.
To make the words POP on the background, I not-so-gently sanded all the words on the Halloween Seasonal Impressions Cardstock and theen added some chalk.  I really wanted the Kraft-Core to absorb the color in the orange and blue Chalking Inks so giving it a good sanding is the key.


The title work was super easy!  I cut the title out of a 4.25″ x 5.5″ piece of Black Magic with my Cricut and then sanded it like crazy so the blue background would play on the title.


Next time you are creating a seasonal layout grab some of the Kraft-Core Seasonal Impressions!

And next up we have card from Designer Clare Buswell:



Love this card?  Here is how Clare did it:

Make cardbase from cardstock. Emboss Black Magic cardstock, sand using Sand-It Gadget and wipe with Dust Buddy. Ink edges using Ripe Persimmon Distress Ink, adhere to card and round bottom corners. Add patterned paper (Authentique Thrilling Collection) panel and adhere sticker stitches. Add ribbon, bow and twine. Adhere Authentique Thrilling Collection stickers to cardstock, ink edges and fussy cut, attach to card using foam pads. Adhere flower, enamel dot and broom, to finish.

And next up we have a super simple card from Debbie Standard. All she did was emboss two colors of cardstock with two different folders and then added an EK Success sticker. And don’t forget  that May Arts ribbon…it’s actually cord that is PERFECT for Halloween with the black, orange and purple!
