Halloween Hooplah with Graphic 45 Papers

Greetings and salutations on this wonderful Monday!
Today I am excited to share with you a little  Halloween inspiration,  along with a few photos taken from my show in KY this past weekend.
So let's get to it!

This fun card was created using Graphic 45's Black Policy Envelope book for the base. 
Glued closed at the top, decorated and hinged together along the sides to create a tall greeting card.

For the front, I wanted the feel of a costume party.  This little witch is all decked out in a handmade paper dress using G45 papers of course!  With orange and purple leggings, matching wrist lets and even some high heeled black shoes, this girl is ready to haunt the dance floor!
Atop her head she is wearing a wonderful matching hat, cut directly from G45 papers!  

This little chipboard tag added the perfect message, and little pop of white needed!  Plus it was the perfect spot to prop this cute little pumpkin. 

For the inside, I wanted to capture the feel of the season!  With some favorite iconic images of Halloween along with a pop up effect!

Looking down on the card, you can see that only the edges of the papers are glued, leaving the centers to have a slight pop up dimensional effect on their own. 
This pumpkin border was perfect for this effect, and I truly couldn't have planned the way it fit any better!!

Love the haunted house on the hill!!  Since the card was created as an invitation, it truly was perfect!
And overhead, a flying witch of course!!

Oh how I LOVE Halloween!! 

The best part of this little card is not only that it pops up, but it also has an interactive invite too!!!

How Peculiar...just pull the tab, and Presto!!! 

The perfect little tag to hide all the info!

Now I just want to share a few pics from this wonderful little show I did this weekend in Kentucky.
This was officially my first out of state show, and WOW, was it a good one to start with!
Set in the hills of Kentucky, just along the river, directly across from Rising Sun Indiana.
This is the tiny town time has forgotten, where the town Mayor is a dog!! 
With only a few tiny buildings to call as down town, all kept original from the early 1900s. 
 All  filled with lots of lovely antiques, and fun knick knacks, I was in heaven!!

Here is a little peek at some of my Halloween creations!

And more of my new art blocks!!

That's it for today!  Thank you so much for stopping by and all your continued support!
Wishing you an outstanding week!

I love this collection. It is absolutely stunning, and the boxes are so unique. The box with the album is absolutely beautiful, I love the papers used in creating it, and the Halloween box is unbelievable. How fun!
