Spooky Halloween Lantern Supplies:

Step 1. Cut the lantern pieces using Core’dinations Bright Color cardstock along with solid black, vellum and black spotted Tillie Dot using your favorite electronic die cut machine.

Step 2. Emboss and sand all of the orange pieces and the black Spotted Tillie Dot spider using the Core’dinations Sand It Gadget.

Step 3. After embossing and sanding the pieces, I ran them through the Xyron 9″ Creative Station and the Xyron 3″ Sticker Maker.  Those machines helped me quickly add adhesive to the panel pieces.

Step 4. I used a liquid adhesive to help me adhere the vellum to the inside of the lantern.  By the way, that vellum cut without a problem in my Silhouette Cameo.  YAY!Haunted Lantern by Joy of JoysLife.com

Step 5.  Assemble the lantern and spider. Add two Darice Self Stick Gems to create eyes for the spider.  Spooky!

Step 6.  Add a Darice Halloween LED Tea Light to your lantern.  I got black tea lights.  They look cool!

Halloween Layout Supplies:

Step 1. Using a ruler and cutting tool, cut the grid pattern in 1″ increments. Within those 1″ pieces, cut out a smaller square.  Where some of the lines meet, punch a whole for added interest. Lay a piece of Black Magic Cardstock  underneath it and score the lines that will appare in the negative image of the squares you just cut.

Step 2. Flip over the Black Magic and sand the scored lines, remove dust with Dust Buddy. Line them up again and adhere. Add your additional elements like the sanded doily cut from Chalk Core. Cut the ghosts from the vellum cardstock.

Charlotte created THE cutest monsters! Aren’t these guys adorable? They are colorful, full of texture and down right festive!  Char used her Cricut and the Mini Monster cartridge to create these little guys.  Next, she ran them through her Cuttlebug with various embossing folders to create the cool textures.   Just add a little sanding and some googley eyes and you have the perfect project for Halloween. (P.S. Make sure you scroll down for our Facebook contest we announced today)
