  Halloween Spooky House, Halloween in Wonderland, by Einat Kessler, product by Graphic 45 photo 10

Einat Kessler and Kathy Clement have filled the blog with awesome tips and techniques today! It will be a crafty Halloween for sure. Let's see their beautiful work!

First, Einat shares a much-requested tutorial - her Washi Tape album binding technique! Then, she has awesome Halloween tips below. Take a look!

"Although I don’t celebrate Halloween I love making Halloween projects. All the spooky and gory images, skeletons and witches are so fun to play with. The Hallowe’en in Wonderland collection is no different. I just loved all the characters and colors of the papers. My Halloween Spooky house is made from two boxes. The smaller box is the house in which I used the lid to create the roof and the larger box is the base that holds the mini album. You all wanted to learn how to bind a mini album with Washi tape so I created this mini album with that technique!" ~Einat

Tip #1: Use a bandage you can get in every pharmacy to add a spooky look to your project. Pull it in all directions to give it a look of an unraveled mummy’s shrouds.

Tip #2: Instead of covering the wall of the house with a piece of paper cut it into “bricks” to add interest and a realistic look.

  Halloween Tea with Alice, Halloween in Wonderland, by Kathy Clement, Product by Graphic 45, Photo 1

Now, Kathy gets us ready for a fabulous tea party! We love this!

"Halloween is such a fun holiday! It seems to bring out the  kid in all of us, giving us a reason to let our imaginations go wild as we design costumes, plan parties and decorate our homes.  The vibrant colors and playful images of Halloween in Wonderland strike the perfect note for a spooktacular Halloween.  That’s why I decided to use it to create this whimsical Halloween Tea with Alice centerpiece." ~Kathy

Tip: I used the top from an 8x8 Staples mixed media box for the base of my centerpiece.  Turning the box upside down, I filled in the window opening and the open sides with chipboard.  This created a really solid base to work with.  After covering the base with papers from Halloween in Wonderland,  I went to work on building the rest of the scene.

Halloween Tea with Alice, Halloween in Wonderland, by Kathy Clement, Product by Graphic 45, Photo 11

These 3x5 Staples Matchboxes were the perfect size to serves as pillars in my centerpiece.  After painting all the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink, I decorated the boxes with paper and fussy cut images.  In keeping with the theme, one box contains several tea bags, while the other contains a small package of cookies.  Petaloo flowers, purple buttons and twine bows add a nice pop of color.

Halloween Tea with Alice, Halloween in Wonderland, by Kathy Clement, Product by Graphic 45, Photo 14

My not too creepy tea pots are made from white ceramic napkin rings that I colored with Alcohol inks.  Chipboard spider webs were glued to the back with Glossy Accents.  Mini pumpkins fit perfectly in the hollow center.  Spanish Moss and a painted chipboard spider add just the right “eek” factor, don’t you think?

Halloween Tea with Alice, Halloween in Wonderland, by Kathy Clement, Product by Graphic 45 Photo 3

This rusty tea table was made from a 4” wide bottle cap and an empty spool.  To give it this spooky finish, I tapped it with rust paste, then topped it with a spider web tablecloth and pumpkin centerpiece.  The dinner plates are chipboard buttons from the collection.  I added mini cutlery and brass teacup charms.  The “napkins” are rolled up pieces of purple glitz ribbon tied with burlap string.

Halloween Tea with Alice, Halloween in Wonderland, by Kathy Clement, Product by Graphic 45, Photo 8

This olive oil bottle was the perfect size and shape for this image of Alice.  The bottle was painted with Clear Rock Candy Distress Paint.  After the paint had set and crackled, I dripped Alcohol Ink onto it to make it Halloween ready.  When everything was dried, the image was glued onto the surface.  I finished the bottle off with Petaloo flowers and purple glitz ribbon.

Halloween Tea with Alice, Halloween in Wonderland, by Kathy Clement, Product by Graphic 45, Photo 7  (1)

Fussy cut images look 3-D when nestled in with pretty pumpkins, acorns and flowers.  I created a “hinge” for these images by cutting a 1” high piece of cardstock that was about an inch shorter than the length of the fussy cut piece.  The cardstock was folded in half and creased. One half of the hinge was glued to the back of the image.  Then I gently curved the image against the edge of my ruler, added adhesive to the base of the cardstock hinge and glued it in place.  It’s a simple trick, but it makes the images come to life.

Fill a small glass vial with fine green glitter and tie on this “drink me” tag.

Halloween Tea with Alice, Halloween in Wonderland, by Kathy Clement, Product by Graphic 45 Photo 3 (1)

Paint pumpkins with Clear Rock Candy Distress Paint to give them a frosty appearance.  When dry, drip on Alcohol Ink and green glitter.  The fussy cut tea set you can see in the background was added to the scene using the paper “hinge” technique.

Today, we have more Halloween inspiration for you from two amazing designers - Olga Heldwein and Joanne Bain! They have dimensional projects that will blow you away using our Book Box Staples and Hallowe'en in Wonderland. Prepare to be amazed!

Olga september house of boxes haloween in wonderland (7)

First, Olga uses our Box Staples to create a spooky and amazing house!

"To create this construction I use two G45 boxes glued together and some cardboard to make house on top. With natural element from deco set i created all mess around ( just mix some straws, grid art stones into gel medium or glue and put it all arround). To add some Autumn feeling I created leves from one of papers with ColorBox inks. " ~Olga

Now, Joanne shows you how to peek through the looking glass with a great Book Box Staples tutorial!

"As it is easily seen I love depth and dimension, so when challenged to use 2 box staples together I was a little unsure but then I chose to use the Large Book Box and the Matchbook box. I wanted it to be a little different so I made the book box open like a draw by cutting away the spine and then I cut into the cover and made a large enough hole to use the Matchbook Box in behind to create a shadow box in the cover. As my box now has a pull out draw I created a little mini album to go inside the box and by creating a shadow box in the cover I was able to add a lot of depth to my project."~Joanne

The Magical Hallowe'en in Wonderland

  Book Box and mini album-Hallowe'en in Wonderland-Tutorial by Lena Astafeva-products by Graphic 45-Photo-9

We are getting so excited about October and Halloween and the crisp fall air. We have so much to share with you today from Lena Astafeva and Katelyn Grosart! Amazing projects and tutorials await you on today's blog. Let's see these amazing projects!

Book Box and mini album-Hallowe'en in Wonderland-Tutorial by Lena Astafeva-products by Graphic 45-Photo-1

First, Lena shares a fabulous photo shoot and a brilliant project inspired by these whimsical photos. Take a look!

"I and my friends organized a photo shoot "Alice in Wonderland" a few years ago. I played a role of  Hatter, my son was a Rabbit, and my friend daughter was Alice.

I'm so glad that  again issued a collection of  “Hallowe'en in Wonderland”.

Now I can save the beautiful photos to make altered art or album. So I created a Book Box with the mini album. Basically in my book box  I’ve  used  ATC Book Box – Black and  Deluxe collection “Hallowe'en in Wonderland”. Inside the book, I placed the Shadow box. Shadow box can be removed is the mini album behind him. This Book Box I gave as a present to my dear friend." ~Lena

Hallowe'en Card, Hallowe'en in Wonderland DCE, Tutorial by Katelyn Grosart, Product by Graphic 45, Photo 2

Katelyn has a great idea and tutorial for sweet treats this Halloween!

"Halloween is just around the corner so I decided to create a fun card and a couple of treat tags. The treat tags are made out of ATC tags and perfectly fit one to two pieces of candy in them, which are great to give out at a Halloween party. The Hallowe’en card is perfect to give to a special loved one or friend. Both the card and treat tags were made using the Hallowe’en in Wonderland Deluxe Collectors Edition." ~Katelyn

Tip: For adhering the two tags together, make sure to score at ½” from the bottom of the tags, this way the bottom of the tags will sit on top of each other.

Curiouser and Curiouser Projects with Graphic 45!

  Curiouser Curiouser Trinket Box, Halloween in Wonderland, Tutorial by Sandy Trefger, Product by Graphic 45, Photo 002

It's a wonderful week to create! We have some delightful Hallowe'en in Wonderland inspiration for you all today. Sandy Trefger shares a curious trinket box. Nico Scrap shows a brilliant way to give a card for a special occasion. Both are works of art! Let's get into the fun!

Curiouser Curiouser Trinket Box, Halloween in Wonderland, Tutorial by Sandy Trefger, Product by Graphic 45, Photo 002

Sandy wows with a whole set of gorgeous projects using our Box Staples! Wow!

"I love Halloween and nothing makes me happier than creating something Halloween with Graphic 45.  The Hallowe’en in Wonderland Deluxe Collection is so awesome!  I decided to create a trinket box with a mirror that turned.  In the front it shows Alice looking in and the Queen of Hearts looking back.  When you turn the mirror around, you find a collage of many of the characters on the back.  To create this trinket box, I used two of the Graphic 45 Staple Book Boxes—the ATC one on the top and the regular book box on the bottom. I changed them up just a bit so that they open up more like a trinket box and the bottom one now has a drawer to hold a fun Wonderland Junk Journal where I added many of the quotes from the fabulous Alice in Wonderland book.  Happy Crafting!" ~ Sandy

Tip:

When fussy cutting out my images, I like to use a dark gray Copic marker to color the cut edges where the white might show.  This finishes off the cut out shapes nicely and you can also use the marker to color in whiter areas that you can’t cut away to make those areas less noticeable.
