Clocks and Halloween?! Yes, it may seem an odd combo, but it just came together. Plus as a preface to all the fun artwork from the Design Team yet to come, there's a Spooky Halloween Banner below by Design Team Member Kristin Batsel with pennants/flags like "Pumpkin Time" and "The Witching Hour" so you can see how clocks and Halloween can work together.
This kit started with the Wonderfully Wicked 6x6 Paper Pad. This is a great combo of papers and the more I work with it the better it gets. Spider webs, handwriting (with drips of blood), busy carpet patterns, and a very cool sheet of rows of old books. The include one sheet each of all TWELVE patterns in the pad. (Note: there are larger 12" x 12" scrapbook papers from this line being announced this month, too).
Back to this kit, there are 3 collage sheets:
- New Halloween Clock Faces Collage Sheet. All kinds of silliness here! Clock faces to fit behind all the sizes of round "holes" in the 2 Victorian furniture chipboard shape sets — and the clocks in this Halloween Clocks Kit (note: the three chipboard clocks in this kit are drawn from the 2 Victorian furniture chipboard sets).
- New Halloween Clock Spinners Collage Sheet. Wow! There are enough orange and black retro Halloween images here to get you through the entire season! These are mainly "spinners" sized to use the little pivot hole in the the chipboard grandfather clock. A couple are traditional moon dials that work with the half circle cut in that chipboard clock. But most of these are much larger (and tall and skinny) spinners that show the image up above the top of the clock. Some can be hidden (nothing shows above the clock till you spin the image around 180 degrees — see that tall strip of photos below left). Others have images on both ends (so you could have a dashing cat (in top hat no less) showing above the clock, or spin him around and have an owl instead. More photos and info on making the spinners work is on the collage sheet page.
- Halloween #3 Collage Sheet. Lots of cats and a vintage illustration of kids bobbing for apples. Also includes a little paper toy from 1907 (instructions printed on the sheet).
(And remember: all the collage sheets are on sale for 15% off (and the digital downloads are on sale for 40% off!), so those new collage sheets are on sale, too!)
Lastly, THREE chipboard clock shapes, each with a round hole cut out for putting a clock face behind (and that grandfather clock you've already heard about). Clock faces sized for each of these chipboard clocks are included in the kit, via the Halloween Clock Faces Collage Sheet.
See the "We Also Recommend" section below for photos/links to all of the items in the kit, also available to purchase separately.

Kits are announced the first weekend of each month. However, if you sign up for a subscription, your kit will probably have already been mailed to you.
A note on timing for subscribers: the kits don't ship till your automatic payment is made; the recurring payment date is based on the date you signed up for the subscription. If you'd like to make a 1-time "catch up" payment so that you'll be first in line to receive all future kits, contact Customer Service.
If you buy a subscription after the 15th of the month, your first kit will be for the following month (so if you subscribe on October 16th, the November kit will be your first kit).
Kits from previous months will be available for purchasing until sold out.
And remember, here's a link to everything in this month's kit that is also available to buy separately. More coordinating goodies are listed on the blog post announcing this kit.
