Lovely Layout & Tag Featuring Happy Haunting!


Hello G45ers,

We want to welcome you all to our joyful blog today! We are so glad that you are joining us. Today's crafts are sure to bring smiles and inspiration to your day. This week has been so much fun! We're highlighting gorgeous creations that feature our marvelous Halloween collection Happy Haunting! We've seen so many magnificent crafts so far and there's even more inspiration on the way! Even though it's the middle of August we've already started to notice that some of the leaves have begun to change ever so slightly. We may still be enjoying the heat of summer but fall isn't that far away. Happy Haunting is such a fabulous collection for all of your Autumn and Halloween crafts. Today you'll see some fun a fabulous Happy Haunting layout from Jane Tregenza and a tag by Arlene Cuevas of our design team.  So let's get started! First we have this adorable LO by Jane Tregenza. Jane has some great tips on how this heartwarming LO was created. Take it away, Jane!

"We don’t really celebrate Halloween in Australia, but it is catching on slowly. My daughter Anna did a trip of a life time last year. She is a Harry Potter fan and she did a tour of England, travelling to all the locations used in the movies. She then travelled to the USA the theme parks in Orlando before returning home. At the Harry Potter theme park, she brought herself a set of robes. As soon as I saw the new papers from Happy Haunting I knew I wanted to used some of Anna’s photos from her trip.  I used a piece of Fright Night as the foundation for my layout. I wanted to hide the pumpkin border on the page. Cut strips  from Enchanted Garden and placed them over the top. I outlined the green leaves with a touch of glitter. To cover the middle images on the page I used Midnight Magic.  I loved the gate on this print, so I cut it out and added to my page with 3l foam squares.  I used some words form the sticker sheet and some spells words I printed onto cardstock and glued them onto the fence. I matted my photo and double matted it with Bewitched.  I just added my title and corner to finish it. I love all the colours of this new collection, and I will be using it for more layouts on Anna’s trip. I wish you could have see her face when I showed her the finished layout. She is so excited that it is going to America and will be on show in the states. She has been telling everyone she has met since, that her mum did a page with her photo on it and it is in America and everyone is going to see it!" -Jane Tregneza

Next we have this amazing Happy Haunting tag created by Arlene Cuevas. You can see how beautifully Arlene combined the gorgeous papers of Happy Haunting with the Happy Haunting Chipboard Die-Cuts in this fun tag. Layering the papers and chipboards adds such stunning dimension to any craft creation. Tags are so much fun to make and this one is extra pretty! Here is what Arlene had to say about this amazing creation!

“Creating tags is one of my favorite things to do – the creative possibilities are endless! Tags are the perfect alternative to sending a card to a friend or loved one (TIP: Write your greeting on the back of the tag and ship it in a small flat rate box that would typically fit a DVD. This would ensure dimensional tags sustain less damage in shipment.Happy Haunting is such a FUN collection to play with. The images on this paper collection capture the true joy of Halloween and the Autumn season.” -Arlene Cuevas

Great paper collection, amazing talent, stunning projects - thanks for sharing! Judy D.

I have not begun to make my Halloween cards and goodies yet , but the list of projects is growing ! I will have to start this weekend with these wonderful ideas !

This collection is all I have used for my Halloween pictures, gifts and tags. I love the colors , there is not another collection like this on Yeah, G45

Fabulous! Great LO and cool tag! Love the Happy Haunting paper? I've made a wooden tag and several charms so far!

I love both the projects! I am definitely looking forward to getting some of collection and sending out some fabulous tags!

Spooktacular fun! I'm enjoying all the Boo-tiful projects!

Another bounty of ideas for the wonderful Happy Haunting paper. I truly admire Jane's ability to create remarkable LOs. The one she did of her daughter in her Harry Potter-like robe showed how versatile this paper can be. Loved the layering, the vivid colors blended seamlessly, and I especially loved the fence with the spells! Arlene's tag is amazing. I had to watch the video twice to catch all the details--there were so many! The fussy cutting was great. I love that she makes embellishments from images from the paper. And, I also love her use of doilies in her projects. They add a unique look and dimension. There was a tremendous amount of inspiration from both projects today. Thanks!

Anna must be so chuffed & as someone mentioned, not just America seeing the LO. I feel quite honoured that Harry Potter brought her to the UK! Brilliant!
As to the tag (& more), I always think i won't get along with them but this project has inspired me to start using them. Thank you.
So pleased i signed up for this blog x

More creative and fun projects...love all the layers on both..Happy Haunting is an awesome collection!

Wow fantastic work from you both, I am loving all the Halloween inspiration at the moment. halloween is becoming more of a thing in the UK now and the children love it - so do I. Gives me a chance to create some lovely projects.

Hugs Ali x

Great work again from the DT - I love Jane's layout - amazing picture of her daughter... I can see why she's so excited about her layout going travelling. Super smart fussy-cutting on Arlene's tag too! Fabulous!

your posted projects are always breath taking. love to receive your posts in my inbox

Great post as I love Halloween and take so many pictures. Need lots of ways to use them and here are a couple more wonderful uses and paper collections to use.

Amazing projects. Such a sweet story behind Jane's page. Arlene's tag is amazing! The Happy Haunting collection is amazing!

Tell Anna that she is beautiful and the star of your layout! Your layout is lovely & creative but it's Anna who brings it to life. Thank you for sharing.

Arlene has been a favorite of mine for a long time (before Graphic 45's design team) and I love her tag. I can only imagine the glitterysparkle on the layout by Jane (which is adorable) but I can surely see the sparkle in her daughter's happy face. I hope Jane reads all the wonderful comments to her daughter. Here is someone whose mother used to work at Disney World reading all about HER.

Truly magical - both projects!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!

Great tag ! So beautiful. Thaks for sharing.
