Creative Ideas with Graphic 45 Halloween Collections


Welcome to another wonderful Tuesday on the blog! Halloween is around the corner, so we wanted to share with you some amazing projects from Miranda Edney and Denise Johnson. We love these two projects, and we know you will too. The perfect addition for your Halloween festivities!

We love when you share on our Facebook page. We love to see your cards, tags, altered art, and more! Today, we are sharing the most incredible home decor piece by Gunn-Eirill Gjelseth-Rauan just in time for Halloween. She used some of our most beloved retired Halloween collections to make this masterpiece. Isn't this fantastic?


Share on our Facebook Page!

Halloween is a time for fun costumes, brilliant home decor pieces, and yummy treats. Today, Miranda shares a brilliant masquerade mask using An Eerie Tale! This project is so fun to showcase in your home or wear to a fun Halloween party.

"I am so in LOVE with this paper collection! So many enchanting ideas come to mind when I see this imagery! I had to create a little masquerade mask for home decor :) To get the paper to fit any curved surface just run it through an embossing folder and it makes it super easy to adhere, and adds amazing texture. Hugs!" ~Miranda

Next, we have the best idea from Denise Johnson for your Halloween scraps - journaling tags! You will love this idea and want to incorporate it into your mini-making today.

"I love creating these journal card sets to coordinate with my Graphic 45 projects.I tuck them into my G45/365 journals, add them to pages for additional journaling or photo space and I love to use them to create fun little stand alone minis, gift tags and place cards.

To craft these cards I start with plain manilla cardstock, cut into 3"x4" cards.I have a large stack of blank cards pre-prepped so when I'm finished with a project and my scraps are handy, I simply grab a stack of cards and craft away.I've got into the habit of doing this after every project and just love my growing collection of handy, coordinating cards, AND I'm using my random scraps rather than saving "for someday", that usually never comes!! ;o"~Denise Johnson














Supply List:


3"x4" blank manilla cards

Scraps & leftover Graphic 45 papers (including An Eerie Tale and Steampunk Spells), stickers, chipboard and embellishments
