Hooray For Halloween With Steampunk Spells

STEAMPUNK SPELLS-GRAPHIC 45-TUTORIAL-ENVELOPE-MINI ALBUM-ENVELOPE-ANNE ROSTAD-ANNESPAPERCREATIONS- 5

Hello G45ers,

October is here and we've got one thing on our minds, fun Halloween and Autumn-inspired crafts! Of course we're always looking for great new ways to be inspired by this beautiful Autumn season. Halloween gives us a great excuse to get creative and festive. Our Steampunk Spells collection is just perfect for Halloween crafting! The saturated colors, marvelous designs and gorgeous coordinating embellishments offer endless possibilities for inspiration. Today we're going to see two fabulous Halloween crafts featuring Steampunk Spells. Maria Cole has created a magnificent tag graveyard that's just perfect for Halloween home decor. Then we will share Anne Rostad's breathtaking Steampunk Spells envelope tag mini album and tutorial. Get ready for a fabulous dose of Halloween cheer. Today's Graphic 45 blog is 100% spooktacular!

We begin with this marvelous tag graveyard that Maria created. This is such a clever idea for festive home decor. You can see how the fun characters in Steampunk Spells take center stage in this exquisite creation. Beautiful Graphic 45 Metal Staples, pretty Petaloo Flowers and other fun embellishments add to the authentic look of this Halloween scene. Bring some vintage-inspired beauty to your Halloween decor this season with Steampunk Spells! It's a Halloween dream come true! Here is what Maria had to say about this fabulous creation.

"Graphic 45’s tag albums are one of my favorite starting points for creativity! And with Halloween around the corner, the possibilities are endless! I got the idea to make a little graveyard home decor piece while looking through my stash of Steampunk Spells, tag albums, and some amazing chipboard by Gina’s Designs. All of these pieces just worked together to create a fun little project that you can display all month long!" -Maria

Santa had better bring me some Steampunk Spells for Christmas and lots of it. These creations are incredible-the artistry just blows me away. I really want to try my hand at them.

Boo-tiful creations.

Beautiful mini album and that is the cutest graveyard I've ever seen! Love Steampunk spells...so fun to play with!

Do these designers ever clean their houses, do laundry, yard work, paperwork, cook meals, do dishes, groom their pets, run the kids here, there, everywhere? I haven't discovered how to be a full time mom and wife and have any time left over to create such elaborate projects. I know! I'll stop sleeping at night and that's when I'll get the crafting done. Yeah! That's the ticket! Lol! Seriously, the projects are awesome. I just don't have the time or energy to devote.
Keep up the good work. I love looking.

"Miss Ima Fraid" - LOVE that!! And I love all of these amazing projects. They're all so imaginative & gorgeous & utterly FABULOUS.

Wow! I am in love with today's projects! So creative.

OMG!!! What a amazing design team truly beautiful works of art. Anne is amazing what a lot of work on her album-would love one of them.

Oh, if only I could win this collection! It's beyond amazing! I'm filled to over-flowing with creative ideas.
