Challenge #21: Halloween--Not a Card


If we receive at least 10 entries, the prize for this challenge will be a $5 Gift Certificate for SVG files from the Creative Pointe's ON LINE STORE.
You'll find over 150 SVG files/sets available for all your paper crafting projects.
If we have less than 10 entries, the winner will receive this SVG file:  HAUNTED HOUSE.  Winner will be randomly chosen from all submissions.

One extra special entry will receive the"Creative Choice" button.

Ready for some inspiration? Let's take a look at what the Design Team created using SVG diecuts.
Vicki used the HAUNTED HOUSE file for her project.  She says:  "For my design team project, I created a luminary from The Creative Pointe's 'Haunted House' SVG.  It's perfectly dilapidated and haunted looking in it's own right, but it sure was fun to amp up the spooky!  Visit my blog for all the details on how to create your own (and see it lit up!)."  Vicki's blog:  Paper Squirrel

Cindy used the cat from the HALLOWEEN SET ONE on the front of her project.  She says:  "I came up with a cute Halloween countdown slate that is very easy to make.  Head over to my blog for complete step-by-step details, including a look at the decorated back side and free sign pdfs if you'd like to make your own!"  Cindy's blog:  The Creative Pointe

Carolyn chose to create french fry boxes using the Haunted Tree file and Halloween Set Two . She says:  "Using a french fry box file from http://www.svgcuttingfiles.comI used the ghost and tombstone from the Halloween Set Two and welded them to the top of the box.  I did the same with the Haunted Tree fry box.  I had a acrylic Halloween stamp that I used to stamp a spider web and spiders on the bottom of the boxes.  The circular sentiments are print and cut, and I also cut out two extra spiders and used the bats from the same Halloween set, making them smaller.  The circular sentiments are placed on foam tape along with the bats and spiders.  A fun container to fill with Halloween candy corn in baggies, to hand out to little ones or to use at a place setting for a Halloween party."  Carolyn's blog:  Granny Ma's Creative Blog

Ruth made some Halloween fun for the kids using the PHOTO PROPS set.  She says:  "I have really been wanting to make some photo props for quite a while and I really loved the idea of "big kids" using the photo props instead of getting dressed up for Halloween (would have been fun if I was still needed to chaperone while trick or treating, but now I can just use them when I give out candy!) I can't wait to see the smiles on the faces of young and old alike who come to my door. For now, here's a picture of some high schoolers modeling the finest (and dare I say funnest?) photo props that can be found!"  Ruth's blog:  Paper and Musings
Octavia used a Jack O'Lantern from the JACK PUMPKINS set and the spider from the BOO Spider file to create this cute treat box.  She says:  "I used the Jack-O-Lantern and the Boo/Spider Sets for this treat box.  Glitter paper for the pumpkins (of course), google eyes, and a coordinating ribbon and tissue paper."  Octavia's blog:  T's Corner For Scrappin'

Tina used a Silhouette file to make the box and then decorated it with files from the HALLOWEEN SET ONE.  She says:  "Here’s a cute little gifty for your favorite spook! I decorated this little favor box (from the silhouette store) with Creative Pointe’s Halloween Set One. Wow talk about some spooky cuts in this set..... A good set of Halloween cuts to have on hand for your Halloween needs.  To find out how the whole project went, well you’ll need to drop by my blog at Tina’s Scrap Corner for a spell."  Tina's blog:  Tina's Scrap Corner

Shelissa created this great pillowbox for treats using the PILLOWBOX file and then decorated it using the bat from the HALLOWEEN TWO set.  She says:  "The paper that I used came from The Paper Studio Jeepers Creepers paper stack.  Please keep in mind that these pillow boxes are good for all occasions.  I used my  Pazzles Inspiration die cutting machine to cut out the pillow box."  Shelissa's blog:  Shelissa"s Craft Studio

Carmen created some lovely lanterns using the HAUNTED TREE and HALLOWEEN SET ONE files.  She says:  "I wanted to something that I have never tried before but admired so I colored mason jars with Paint and Mod Podge. I then cut some of Cindy’s great Halloween files out of Vinyl and adhered them to the outside of the jars. Decorated with some washi tape ribbon, twine and tags. I will put battery operated candles in them on Halloween and we will have loads of spooky at our house."  Carmen's blog:  Carmen's Creations
