New Halloween Paper & Embellishments – and ALL Halloween on Sale!

Filed under Back in Stock, Bella Ayers, Halloween, Kristin Batsel, Twilight Kit

Shhh. Don’t tell anyone. But I just noticed that 6 months from today is Christmas. I know, time has become quite squishy this year. But before we get to any “Christmas in July” shenanigans, let’s back up to our favorite holiday: Halloween!

There’s a new Twilight 12×12 Custom Paper Set today! Oooo.. what a great set of papers! Lots of patterns, perfect for backgrounds on Halloween projects. 1 each of 4 double-sided cardstock-weight sheets.

It’s made up of my favorite tiny prints from the Twilight collection (we used to have the 8×8 pads from this group — the TWO art projects featured today were made with the slightly-smaller 8×8 papers).

And in honor of this new paper set (and more new Halloween items shown below): ALL Halloween Items are on sale through tomorrow night (Friday night, June 26th)! (So the new paper is included, too!) This is HUGE (over 500 items)! More info on the sale is below!

Haunted Duplex by Design Team Member Kristin Batsel!

I love this Haunted Duplex by Kristin! It is the perfect way to show off the possibilities of the Twilight papers.

I just had to start with that close-up at right (how cute is that ghost?!) but scroll down just a bit to see the entire glorious duplex!

Here’s some text from Kristin’s blog post to start a tour of her action-packed houses:

Double your fun! I took two large chipboard haunted houses and put them together to create a haunted duplex. These houses were identical, so I cut out one of the towers on the house on the left to create a different roof line. Then, I had a great time mixing and matching Halloween papers and adding spooky accessories. Chipboard doors and window frames, along with Dresden trim and flying bats, give the duplex dimension.

Such a great project, Kristin!!

Here’s a link to all the supplies Kristin used, and a link to the original post with more info!


What else is new today?

New or back in stock: The Spice Market 12×12 Collection Kit and the Tall Round Drawer Pulls (1:12 scale) are back in stock.

Oh, the Halloween charm set below: 4 of the 5 charms in it are new today, too (see links to the individual charms on the charm set page). Yes, that is a tiny vampire bead! And to complete the first row below: a Miniature Stereoscope!

Beside the items highlighted below, see all 12 items!

Trick or Treat Banner Giveaway!

What? Another cool project that used the 8×8 size of Twilight paper?!

That Trick or Treat Banner was made by Design Team Coordinator Miz Bella (Kimberly Ayers)! Oh my! Such a fun, crazy-pattern-filled Halloween banner! Love that Trick or Treat Text at right (slathered in glitter — on sale at 50% off).
