Five, count 'em, five days away from Halloween!! That's 30 days left til Thanksgiving, and 60 days left to go before Christmas!! Ugh.......biggest 2 months of the retail year are coming up!! Double ugh.....yep, I work in retail!! Great for sales, but rough for employees. Even harder for management staff....tis the season to get your face ripped off!! It just seems that we can never make everyone happy.....ie. 'you don't have this', and 'you never have that'; 'you don't have enough cashiers', 'I've been waiting in this line for hours' and 'what are you gonna do about it?' Well, let me pull them out of my ass!! Cause that's where I hide them!! Ugh, are people that stupid/crazy, that they actually think that stores hide their employees and/or their products? Okay, I'm done ranting!
Sooooo, back to Halloween......and I still have 3 more projects for Snobby Walrus, to show you!!
Curiouser & Curiouser
Love this Pink Paislee paper!! I added a large clear sticker from PP about 1/3 of the way in, on the right side, and then butted my pic against that 'line'. Lots of fussy cutting of the gorgeous papers, from the Halloween In Wonderland collection from Graphic 45. I just love their papers!!! They are def one of my fave companies!! Okay, it's a tie for first place, with Webster's Pages!!
I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink, on the teeny Dusty Attic chipboard frame. Love their chipboard....it's gotta be laser cut, to get such great detail on itty bitty pieces!! And I added another G45 diecut to the backside. Prima flowers, leaves & lace, button is SW.
Though you can't really see it, I also used Glimmer Glam on the leaves & flowers of the G45 paper. A bit of Distress Stickles on the teapot, some Glossy Accents on the title, and a few feathers that I picked up at Michaels.
This next pic is a watermelon, that my DIL, made for Mason's First Birthday/Halloween Party.
More PP paper (background), Prima bling, lace, flowers & leaves, which I glimmer misted!! Alphas (purple) are Glitz, also Glimmer Misted, and Making Memories (stash).
Candelabra/bird is fussy cut from My Mind's Eye paper....love these!! They are flocked papers....yum! The little bling, is actually a button which I covered in Black UTEE (several times) and then added a rhinestone over top; I colored it with a Sharpie!! I also used a Martha Stewart punch on the Glimmer Misted paper. Ribbon is Fancy Pants.
Love this pic of DD & DGS!! Even if the 'Superman' costume doesn't match!! LOL
More G45 paper & MME papers!! I used a Martha Stewart punch to make the eerie fence. This punch is one of my faves from her collections!! The little cat on the fence is another Dusty Attic chipboard, which I glittered up!! Prima flowers & leaves.....more misting! I used a piece of MME as a mat for my pic, which is printed on watercolor paper!
It took me a while to figure out how to use the DA chipboard tree.....it's a little big, and it took up a good portion of the page. Finally, I decided to do the un-thinkable......and cut it in 2 pieces!! I Glimmer Misted it with Pomegranate & Raven. It's hard to see the 2 separate colors in these pics. I also used the same process on the Prima leaves.
Little orange pom-poms were cut from Prima fringe. I also printed my secondary title on MME papers using Chiller Font. Almost forgot to mention......that, the gorgeous yellow seam binding is from Bluebird Lane's etsy shop!!! You've got to visit her shop, she's got lots of other goodies for sale too!
So, that's it for today. And should you happen to go out shopping in the next couple of months, please remember this.......we (retailers) do not set out to make your shopping life a living hell!! So be nice!! And if you can't be.......then shop online!!
