Let's Take a Ride and Introductions!


Well, today is the reveal of my final project from Page's First Design Team!  We'll also be introducing you to the new team and, next week, we'll be sharing all the details of our new members!

I was lucky enough to get Authentique's Glowing paper line, which is a great, spooky and elegant Halloween line!  And for a girl who LOVES Halloween, it was great inspiration for a Designer's Choice project!

While coming up with my idea I looked at the paper line A LOT.  I wanted to make an awesome project that would really showcase what you can do with this beautiful paper line and after looking at the different perforated Icons and patterned paper, I decided to create a Halloween Spooky Carousel.

I used the Icon's from Authentique as my Carousel "rides", along with Lifestyle Crafts dies.  Both the ghost and the bat is from Lifestyle Crafts Be Spooked Collection.

I really wanted the top of the Carousel to look pretty since, depending on where it's displayed, it might be the first thing that you see!  I cut a circle from paper and created a "cone" with it.  I then glued strips of solid black cardstock to the top to create sections, added striped ribbon and a netting ribbon under a scallop circle and a black plastic spider.
On the sides of the top I used a large scallop circle punch (Marvy) and a small scallop circle punch (EK Success).  On each scallop circle I either created a pinwheel with a blingy button...
or a QuicKutz Raven.
I punched (Martha Stewart) a spooky picket fence for the base of my Carousel that wrapped all the way around.  I then added ribbon at the bottom of the fence to give it a clean look.
That's it for my project!  If you'd like to see all of the little details, please check it out at Page's!
