Welcome to Our October Linky Party and Some Fun Halloween Samples!

Hi Everyone, 

Today is the first day of our October Linky Party which will run all week. I hope you will dig out your Crafty Secrets supplies and create something or find a past favorite sample you want to share and post it here this week!  

Everyone who enters our Halloween Linky Party this week will get to choose between a small digital stamp or a small 3.5" and a large 16 x 20" cotton bag from State Line. Except, sorry overseas entries have to get the digi stamp due expensive postage. Here is the digi stamp - but it will be much bigger and high resolution and it needs a sentiment. Any ideas??
  A Winner will be drawn and announced next Monday for a $50.00 Gift Certificate. Don't be shy! To enter, scroll down to the end of this post and click on the thumbnail that says 'your next' and add a photo and link to a blog or online gallery you use so everyone can see your project.  It's helpful to others if you can list what Crafty Secrets product you used a supply list.  

I have some fun Halloween samples to share today as well.

I created my sample above using PSE - Photoshop Elements and our new CD #4 Creating With Vintage Halloween. See my List of Best Free Software Picks for our CD's if you want to try doing layers and don't own PSE. I picked a green paper and added some images from the PNG Folder with the 3 witches, the top border, a few spiders and the pumpkin. After I opened the paper with PSE , under 'File' tab I clicked Place and got the images 1 by 1, hen you can size and move them around. I added the lines for the spiders using (cause I haven't figured out how to in PSE yet). 

I own a 12 x 12" Canon printer (see link on right side of this blog) but if you have a 8.5 x 11" format you can crop an image or shrink it down.  I shrunk mine to 3.5" and pasted it in PSE on orange sheet music paper from CD and printed a strip on paper to make a candle wrap. 

Here's a cute Halloween card Cammi made with our CD

Love this! As for the digital stamp sentiment how about, "well read" or "bookends" or "silence is golden"?
