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

Cuuuute~ I want a house album to alter now! That looks fantastic, and it must be crazy fun to HAVE to make awesome stuff.

Can I ask what image you used for the front cover? The skeleton between the creepy dolls? I looove that picture and must know where it is for later purchasing.  Cheesy

Great work, as always.   Grin
Halloween is "my" holiday, and I'm getting really excited that it's just around the corner.  I keep looking for signs that I can start the slow overtaking of my home with fall/Halloween stuff. This got me thinking of new things I can add!

Also, I want your job!

Fetch the smelling salts!  I'm swooning over here!  Siiiiiiigh.

It's a house!  It's Halloween!  It's so wonderfully detailed and well planned/executed!  It's wonderful that one source would have so many great things to make this creepy-cool.  So many companies make their Halloween-themed materials so danged cute.

I love the way it overlaps into a whole house from the front. I was wanting to do something like that but keep putting it off because I've been too lazy to sort out how it should work.

Fan-freaking-tastic! I love all of the "creepy" imagery, it's right up my alley. I also love how you used the Dresden trim to mimic the gingerbread details on Victorian houses, very cool!

I REALLY love the colors and the creepy elements you included.  I have to ask--was this project pretty expensive?

Thanks!

As for the expense, fortunately for me, this project was done as part of my job of being a design team member for Alpha Stamps, so a lot of the materials were provided. It probably would be a little expensive to fully duplicate.  Smiley
