I am actually in Australia for October so everything is scheduled - I hope it all goes to plan!
I will not be in my craft room but still had to take part!!

I will be offering some spot prizes...

and some of you know that I usually offer my makes as a giveaway, posting anywhere.
 If you would like my 31DOH book please add one of your Halloween makes to the linky at the bottom...

My idea was to make a book of ATCs this year - combining this with my 'Year of ATCs?'

I made a book, upcycling some packaging and covering back and front with gelli plate pulls.





 I added pages and then started decorating the whole with Tim Holtz ephemera, stickers, embellishments and my ATCs.





Each day I will add a new ATC...

This is today's ATC for Day 18 of 31 DOH, Day 291 of 'A Year of ATCs?':


Recipe:

Base - Green card
Background - Gelli plate pull
Shaping - Tonic ATC Collection Dies
Image - Tree from unnamed stamp set in my stash
Embellishments - metal tree embellishment


Here is the current double page:





Happy Hopping!



See you again tomorrow!


Addicted to Stamps and More - CAS Challenge





Here's my CAS card...for the Challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More


Basically a white card blank with a circular aperture cut in the front - 
and I stamped Dream Big on that.


Inside I stamped a the dinosaur stamp coloured with Zig real brush pens.
The stamps are from Fun Stampers Journey
I also added Happy Birthday as this card was for my great nephew...


Hope you will enter the Challenge!

Happy Crafting!

Ike's World Challenges #99


Today I would like to show you my makes for Ike's World Challenges!

The current Challenge (#99) is Anything Goes with an Optional Twist -
Autumn

and this is my midway post...


If you pop over to Ike's World Challenges you will find there is a super freebie to pick up...


Howloween


You could use this for the Challenge - but your image is free choice -

You may have been following my 31 DOH - in the course of hopping through this and looking at Mary's Facebook page, I came across this rhyme

Image result for scarecrows, corn rows, pumpkins on the vine

 I was going to use this in my layout ... but I stayed with the spirit of 31 Days of Halloween...

 I have used Autumn colours with Halloween images:
Witch Silhouette







I used Serif Craft Artist 2 and some papers from Dragons Lair Designs (no longer trading) -
and combined them with the images to make a Happy Halloween layout!

Look forward to seeing your creations in Challenge #99...


Happy Crafting!

Crafty Hazelnut Extra October Challenge Midway


Starting early with my Christmas cards means I am organised come November -

 well hopefully!!

This is my Midway Design Team make for the August Challenge of


Bugaboo Stamps are proud to sponsor this challenge - they are offering four digital stamps to the randomly selected winner.





I started with a red card blank and then added a scalloped circle of scrap DP then the Mistletoe stamp on red card. This is from the Woodware stamp set I used recently for a set of ATCs.


This holiday card is the fourth of four cards using this stamp set and scraps from my stash.


 I also stamped the Mistletoe stamp on a scrap of green and cut out the leaves to paper piece them onto the red card.


Finally I added some pearls.



Do have a look at the other makes to inspire you over at Crafty Hazelnut's Extra


Looking forward to seeing your make...



Happy Crafting!
