I am actually in Australia for October so everything is scheduled - I hope it all goes to plan!
I will not be in my craft room but still had to take part!!

I will be offering some spot prizes...

and some of you know that I usually offer my makes as a giveaway, posting anywhere.
 If you would like my 31DOH book please add one of your Halloween makes to the linky at the bottom...

My idea was to make a book of ATCs this year - combining this with my 'Year of ATCs?'

I made a book, upcycling some packaging and covering back and front with gelli plate pulls.




 I added pages and then started decorating the whole with Tim Holtz ephemera, stickers, embellishments and my ATCs.





Each day I will add a new ATC...

This is today's ATC for Day 16 of 31 DOH, Day 289 of 'A Year of ATCs?':




Recipe:

Base - Black Card
Background - Distress Oxide
Shaping - Tonic ATC Collection Dies
Image - Creepy Cute Stamps
Embellishments - I added just a touch of colour to this with Zig real brush pens - maybe the recipient of my book would like to add a little more!!


Here is this completed page:


(Another hint to Spot Prize 3 mentioned on Day 14)



Happy Hopping!



See you again tomorrow!

Crafty Hazelnut Extra October Challenge Midway


Starting early with my Christmas cards means I am organised come November -

 well hopefully!!

This is my Midway Design Team make for the August Challenge of


Bugaboo Stamps are proud to sponsor this challenge - they are offering four digital stamps to the randomly selected winner.





I started with a red card blank and then added a scalloped circle of scrap DP then the Mistletoe stamp on red card. This is from the Woodware stamp set I used recently for a set of ATCs.


This holiday card is the fourth of four cards using this stamp set and scraps from my stash.


 I also stamped the Mistletoe stamp on a scrap of green and cut out the leaves to paper piece them onto the red card.


Finally I added some pearls.



Do have a look at the other makes to inspire you over at Crafty Hazelnut's Extra


Looking forward to seeing your make...



Happy Crafting!
