One of the greatest things about being on the Alpha Stamps design team is "having to" do Halloween crafts. I've been dying to show off my latest project: this chunky masonite house that is now a haunted chunky house. Now that it's gone live on the site, I can share it here!


I love the way the pages of this book overlap. I really wanted the parts showing when the book is closed to look like they all go together, so took special care in placing my images on the pages behind the front cover. I used lots of Dresden trim on this one; I love the way it looks along the roof line. Here are all the pages, as they would be seen if you flip through the book:

Creepy dolls, witches, and bats!


A frightening child pushing a giant doll head, black cats, skeletons, and evil bats.


More bats, Dia de los Muertos images, and skeletons (oh my!)


The back cover, with a witchy couple and some wonderful old paper from G45.

And one more detail shot, because I love the front so much.

Enter if you dare!

This project is composed totally of Alpha Stamps products: the book, the collage sheet images, and all the charms and trim. They are Halloween central over there!

What a fun project!

You did a great job with the Halloween theme! I love the witchy couple!

 It looks like the house is pretty versatile, though...a cute Victorian cottage is what I envision!

Wowza! I don't know why that first pic is so huge!  Shocked

Oh, yeah, you could definitely make that house book into any kind of house you wish: Victorian, beachy, a fairy house...maybe even a circus themed dwelling.  Cheesy
