    Halloween Carnival Event and Giveaway!

    Filed under Art Projects, Design Team, Giveaways, Halloween, Newsletters, Sale

    Note: most of the links on this post no longer work, as we moved to a new Web site in 2018. However, you can see the supply list items from Laura’s project that are still available on the new site.

    Outstanding! Design Team Member Laura Carson has done it again (and created a monumental project for Halloween — complete with video tutorials, challenges with fabulous prizes, and free images)!

    And see that “Haunted Carousel” at right? Both it (and the “Spinning Cauldrons” and “Ride a Witches Broom” Rides) all spin!

    “The Halloween Carnival has finally come to town and you are all invited. There is something for everyone but first you’ll need a ticket. Mr. Bones is working the booth tonight and he’ll be happy to help you. Once you have your ticket you’ll want to check out all the carnival has to offer; lots of games, rides and of course sweet treats to tempt you.”

    Laura has designed TWELVE New! collage sheets, with all the signage, characters and props needed for the carnival’s attractions (4 collage sheets each for the rides, games, and the carnival itself). PLUS, all the images from the collage sheets are available as silhouetted PNG files sold in 3 sets. (See below for pics of 8 of the 12 collage sheets, plus here’s a link to see all of them, including the digital sets.)

    And did I mention: everything needed for Laura’s Carnival (including the new collage sheets and digital sets) are On Sale! I’ve gathered everything together into a new 2013 Halloween Carnival Event Supplies section.

    Psst! Photos of specific carnival booths are on each of the collage sheet pages. And here’s a repeat of the link to Laura’s Tutorial.

    But wait! Before you go, look down this post to see a related Giveaway you could win to create your own version of Laura’s “Boo Bash”!


    Where to begin?! We decided to start with Laura’s Boo Bash, which is adorable and includes lots of pumpkins (scattered about on paper, as 3D objects, and a stage carved into a paper mache pumpkin).

    In addition to just about everything you’d need to make your own Boo Bash scene (see all the goodies Laura used), Meghan added:

    - Small Plastic Pumpkins On Sale!
    - 8×8 Heavy Chipboard – Black On Sale!
    - Sticky Thumb Dimensional Foam

    Then I decided that you might need a few more costumed animal patrons, so I included the 2 New and On Sale! Mice Collage Sheets:

    - Country Mice
    - 3 Blind Mice

    To enter the Boo Bash Giveaway drawing all you have to do is leave a comment (below) on this blog post by midnight, September 6, 2013 (Friday night PST). (Don’t forget to leave your (hello! correct) email address, too, so I can contact the winner; your email address does not need to be made public. Note: I’m offering free shipping, too, but only within the USA. International shipping will still apply.)

    Please be patient! Spammers try to post crap here a lot so comments are moderated. So if you don’t see your post in the comments section, be patient and check back in a few hours before re-posting it, please!

    By Sunday morning’s newsletter, I’ll randomly pick the winner (via Random.org). So make sure to check back Sunday to see who won!
