Halloween Mash UP!

Hope all of my Canadian readers had a fantastic Thanksgiving Weekend. We were under the weather at my household this year so we will be having our turkey dinner this coming weekend yahoo!!!

For this week’s Friday Mashup we were asked to make a Halloween theme project, I have not made a Halloween card yet this season so I was very excited about this challenge.

I am a huge fan of Halloween it is such a fun holiday. When I was young my mother used to make all of our Halloween costumes by hand. Looking back I really appreciate her having done that for us (perhaps not at the time because children seldom appreciate half of what their parents do for them until they have grown up and started their own families)! So I have decided that I will do the same for our children. Our son is 2 ½ now and this year he will be a T-Rex. He is REALLY into dinosaurs at the moment so it will be perfect. Okay back to my card... J

My Challenge:

1.            Make a "Halloween themed" Project.

2.            Or Make a Project using the colors: "Black, Pumpkin Pie, Lucky Limeade & Concord Crush".

3.            Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Halloween project using the Colors listed above".

My Card:

Tiny Tips:
I love using buttons on my cards and here is a cute little trick I learned from a good friend of mine, rather than using bakers twine or lined thread on your button why not use card stock? How you may ask? Just use your paper snips to cut a thin piece of the card stock of your choice (not too thin) and you will want to be able to tie it. As I learned this little technique takes some practise but now I use it all the time. On this week’s card I used two pieces of card stock, one I tied and cut on and angle and the second I used to curl to add a little more dimension to my card.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Hi Haley,

    Great to see you playing along with us again this week with your fabulous card.

    Thanks for the tip on the cardstock twine, I've done this many moons ago with 1/4 inch strips, break the fibres and tie a knot but this one looks much better thin.

    Your card has lots of lovely detail.
