    NEW Halloween Papers & Halloween Charm SALE!

    Filed under Art Projects, Contests/Winners, Halloween, Kristin Batsel, Twilight Kit

    What? New Halloween Paper?! Yes!

    It’s past the 4th of July. It’s getting toward that bestest time of year. And I found bunches of new Halloween scrapbook papers: from moody/spooky night scenes to bright fun patterns (like Black, Ivory & Orange Halloween Diamonds and Eerie Night Cemetery Secrets shown at left and right, and tons more new paper below)!

    And colorful Halloween paper got me thinking about… Design Team Member Kristin Batsel! So I’m revising a fab
    Haunted Duplex she made a couple of years ago.

    Plus there’s a couple more new Halloween items (not paper) and a related Halloween sale!

     
    Haunted Duplex by Kristin Batsel!

    Wee! 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!

    I love all those orange and black mixed-up patterns! Kristin used the papers in the Twilight Pads plus papers from the September 2019 Kit, too. But some of today’s new Halloween papers (or patterns from the Masquerade Pads) would mix in with the pattern play nicely!

    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 gates, doors, and window frames, along with Dresden trim and flying bats, give the duplex dimension. The houses are attached at the back with a strip of washi tape.

    Every year the residents of the duplex try to outdo each other in decorating. They do love Halloween! The skeletons, who live on the left, enjoy a nice banquet on the big day. Looks like their youngest has been out trick-or-treating.

    Witches reside in the other half of this duplex. Most of them are probably out on their broomsticks, but someone has to stay home and watch for trick or treaters. I believe they’d rather be out riding. (That poor witch looks like she’s so bored.)

    Beautiful work, Kristin!! I love, love, love the banners Kristin added (the “BOO, YOU” on the left house if from the Mini Halloween Banners Collage Sheet and the “HAPPY HALLOWEEN” on the right is cut from one of the papers in the Happy Halloween Custom 12×12 Paper Set).

    Go visit Kristin’s blog post for more photos and tips! And a colorful, big supply list.
