I've kept the little spaces pretty simple and haven't cluttered them up too much since they'll be covered by the house exterior most of the time.

The papers I used for the background are the Tim Holtz 8x8 Kraft Paper Stash. I like them a whole bunch! The simple black and orange patterns are nice and functional and easy to coordinate.

If you know me at all, you know I'm a bit lazy when it comes to hinges. I've opted to not have hinges in this piece at all and simply use a length of ribbon that is tied around the back and hold the front of the front facade in place.

Mine is filled with just a mish-mash of halloween images, but it would be a load of fun to create a themed house. A vampire abode. A monster mansion. Or maybe even include pics of your own family members in their Halloween regalia.

  2. Perfection Nichola! Ahhh look at the calendar. . . here we go again. . . this holiday is coming and going WAY TOO FAST! I want to have months to explore all the wonderful spooky possibilities of the season and indulge in stories, myths and rituals. . . but we are already on to custom winter and Christmas pieces. *sigh*
