A little Halloween fun!

Hello Everyone, Vicki here.. filling in for Sandy while she's away.   I thought it would be fun to do a Halloween post, since there's a chill in the air.. and Halloween is getting closer each day.    I thought I'd start by showing you a gorgeous card  Beate created.
Beate John has a fabulous tutorial on making this Petal card HERE  at Splitcoast.  She has done a step by step with photos, and a video also.

Look at this CUTE house desing team member Gini Cagle created.

The Halloween Fun Clear Art Stamps were used on Gini Cagles house above.

Debbie Marcinkiewicz (also a CS Design Team member) created the next two cards using that same stamp set.

I created the next two cards using the Halloween Greetings Double Sided Creative Scraps and papers from the "Creating with Vintage Patterns" CD 1, for Crafty Secrets Challenges over at Splitcoast Stampers.  This first card was for last weeks challenge.."Wheres your button"  hosted by Lori Washburn.   I really enjoy the challenges these girls come up with.  I created a fun little flower with my button, and did a tutorial on my blog on how to create.  You can see that on my blog HERE, as well as some other fun ideas for using "text" on your projects.

I also used the "Happy Halloween" stamp set, on the inside of my card.  Crafty Secrets also has this fun Halloween set available  "Costume Cuties"

This weeks Challenge is hosted by Darlene, and its' another fun one..... "Using up Scraps".    Here is the card I created for this weeks challenge. 
  We'd be thrilled to have any of you come play along with us any time!  Thanks girls, for the fun challenges!

I thought I would just show a few other Halloween projects done with other Crafty Secrets "Halloween themed goodies".  (With Sandy Gone, I'm not sure on which of our Amazing DT girls created each of these projects.. so I could give them each credit .... my apologies to them for that).

This could be used for Halloween goodies I suppose..but it's just cool for about anything, so I wanted to share it here.  It's a  fun altered case Jan Hennings created  with papers from the "Creating with Vintage Images CD".

Well, I hope all this inspiration gets you in the mood for creating some Vintage Halloween fun!
Well, be back soon with more inspiration! And .... dont forget, next week is our Design Team Challenge post. The DT has been working on their creations to post on Monday Sept.19th.

Hope to see you then!
