Day Five of the 31 Days of Halloween




Several years ago, Pam and I took a class at a stamp show in Akron with a rep from A Stamp in The Hand. We both loved those stamps - still do - but the company no longer comes to shows in Ohio and has never put up a website. Anyway, this form is what we learned to do that day. As I was looking to duplicate my sample as a Halloween project, I found that I had no notes. I was able to figure out most of it by just looking but the instructor must have had a different way to glue it or thicker cardstock as my front page ended up a little warped.  Most of the design work revolves around the center fold and quarter folds of a half sheet of shiny paper. I'm sure that most of the stamps are familiar, the companies are Inkadinkado, Close To My Heart, Martha Stewart, and Pink Paislee. If there are specific stamps you would like to know, I'll try to look them up.
The projects I've seen in the four days of hopping have been just superb. I'm so excited to be here doing this and looking at everyone's beautiful (and spooky) projects. Thank you Horrify Hoppers for your kind comments on my work as well. If all of this is a total surprise to you, click on Terra's link in the blogroll to the right (the first one). Everybody else, get hopping over to Lisa's blog. See you tomorrow as I've just been invited to spent a tiny bit of time with my DH!!

I love how this turned out - despite you fussing a bit while working through it.... it is just FAB! Love the colors, a little out of the ordinary which I love. This is a LOT of work for one project! I want to go back and do one now. I'll have to find my sample from that class. I love the images that you used on it.
