Halloween Fun

want to know what I love most about being a Stampin' Up! demonstrator? The fact that I HAVE to Scrapbook!! At least that is what I tell my hubby. Stampin' Up! has a great promotion on right now where you can sign up to be a demonstrator for HALF OFF!! The starter kit is normally 215.00, but from now until Nov 30th, you can sign up for only 107.50!! Talk about HUGE Savings! I will get into that a little later with my next post. For my Stampers Club this month we are doing scrapbook pages. I let them choose their theme, Fall or Halloween, so I did both LO's. This is the Halloween one, and I love that these pics are from last year! That means I'm only 1 year behind!!! WOOHOOO!! The LO is pretty simple for the most part, and I LOVE that most of the little figures are made from the owl punch! How awesome is that?? I saw the little mouse done somewhere online (I'm sorry if it's your idea, I have completely forgotten where I saw it, if you came up with this please let me know so I can give proper credit) and just had to try it. Then I figured why not try a cat, and it was super easy. The tail for both comes from the leaves and branch from the bird punch. The tombstone is from the designer label punch.

I painted over part of the candelabra with silver shimmer paint to give it a little more of a spooky look.
Stamps: Wicked Cool
Inks: Basic Gray, Whisper White
Paper: Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive, Basic Gray, Basic Black, Whisper White, Perfect Plum DSP
Misc: Owl Punch, Bird Punch, Bat Punch, Designer Label Punch, Top Note Die, Sponges, White Gel Pen, 1/4" Basic Black Grosgrain Ribbon, Crop-A-Dile (cat's eyes), cricut

I had a lot of fun designing this LO. I love when you can use punches for more than one use, it makes them so much more versatile.

These pages came out great!!! I finally broke down and ordered the Owl Punch I can't wait for it to come to make all these cute characters.
