Halloween Wall Hanging – Nicole

Hi all, Nicole here with a fun Halloween wall hanging with you all. I used the super fun and handy diecut frame from Crafty Cutting.

Step 1

I covered the frame with some fabulous Halloween papers. I traced the frame onto the paper to get the size and cut it out, including cutting out the middle of the frame.

I cut a piece of paper to fit inside the opening of the frame. I used this fun harlequin pattern in black and orange.pic 3 Step 3

I sanded off the edges of the paper to get a smooth edge on the paper and then inked up the edges with black soot distress ink.pic 4 Step 4

I inked up a bat from the crafty catting range and then inked over it in black embossing powder to give a lovely shine.pic 5 pic 6 Step 5

I added some twine in between the two pieces to have something to hang the frame by.pic 7 Step 6

I added some glow in the dark paint on some parts of the paper. This dries clear but gives a cool glow when its dark!pic 8I glued the bat on the frame and called it done! I love the 3d effect and dimension these frames give without being too bulky!

Completed Mini Album

Hi everyone,

Its Nicole here with photos of the finished mini album from our Ustream class from Saturday. A big thank you to everyone who stopped by and joined us during the class. You can watch the class back here if you missed it. I did try to make a video of the album instead of having a very photo heavy post, but unfortunately my camera was not co-operating! All supplies used in the class can be found here. So all the photos are below, I hope they give you some ideas on how to decorate chipboard mini albums for Halloween!
