First off, I want to say “Welcome, October! And all my crafty friends, a great big welcome to you!” Today is October 1st, which means we get to kick off October Spooktacular! I’m so excited for this event! I hope you are too. So let’s get to it!
Today is Fanciful Friday: Halloween Tiles! I found this super cute digi scrapbook kit from Summertime Designs. She’s got great stuff (and it’s free!(and for personal use only, of course.)). Make sure you check her out! I seriously spent like two days downloading her kits because they were all so great I had to have ALL of them! Anyway, she’s got some incredibly cute Halloween kits. I used “Happy Halloween” and “Fangs for the Memories” Kits to create this project.
This was super simple but I think it turned out fantastic. Here’s what I did:
Take four 4 in standard tiles. Mine were white, so out came the black spray paint. I think I may have a spray paint addiction! While that was drying, I opened up my ever trusty Photoshop (I heart Photoshop!) and put together my four collages. One with a cat, a candy corn, a pumpkin and one with a bat. Then I printed those on white cardstock and cut them out. After making sure my tiles were dry, I put a layer of mod podge on the BACK of the cardstock and stuck it to the tile. Don’t put mod podge on the front or it will smear your ink. EEK! Repeat with the other three tiles. You may use these images for your own personal use, but please keep it to that.
Then I got this box of raffia on Craigslist… I have to show you this box… Any guesses how much I paid for it? Ok, actually my hubby went and got it. He’s my master bargainer… $5. That’s right I got this whole box for $5. I love my husband. Hehe. Back to the tiles.
I took some of the raffia and added little embellishments to each tile with tacky glue. I let that all dry. Then, I used TiteLock glue to glue Halloween ribbons to hang them from. Waa-lah! All done! I just love how they turned out.
Want to get yourself a set? Well, you’re in luck… I’m going to give one away. Now, like I said earlier, Summer’s kits are for personal use only. So… This giveaway set won’t look exactly like this set, but it will be the same idea and very similar.
I will get a picture of it up tomorrow The picture below is the set that is being given away. Who doesn’t love free stuff?
