    Final Halloween Sale Day + New Markdowns (+ a Spooky Giveaway!)

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

     November 3rd Update:
     The Spooky Giveaway Winner is…

    Happy Halloween! Not only is it the actual day, and there’s 2 more banners from the Design Team to ooh and ahh over, but there are some terribly tardy New and On Sale! Halloween goodies to show you. AND… today is the final day of the Halloween Sales and just last night I made new mark-downs in all the sale categories:
    - Halloween Carnival Event Supplies
    - Halloween Theme Section
    - Halloween Collage Sheets
    - Halloween Rubber Stamps

    And note: today is the due date for the Halloween Pennant and Ornaments Swaps (so get to the post office today, please!)

    Two more banners?! Yes, portions of both are at right (by Rhonda Secrist Thomas and Shannon Tuttle). See those little rosettes (above the resin owls and ivory ric rac on the Triangular Chipboard Pennants)? Rhonda made those with the Tim Holtz Mini Paper Rosettes Die!

    And at first I though Shannon had used crackle paint on that chipboard bat, but it’s the crackly texture of the printed paper from the Thrilling – Antidote Bats Scrapbook Paper! More photos of both banners are in the Gallery.

    Plus don’t forget to look below for the Giveaway Miz Meghan chose, based on both of the new banners (plus the new Halloween items like those 2 Scrapbook Papers shown at left)!


    Yay! A Spooky Giveaway! And beside the items Rhonda and Shannon used when making their banners, Meghan pulled a big group of goodies that could be used to embellish your own spooky banner!
