When you think of Halloween, what colors come to mind? For me, it's the mixture of colors in the Halloween Collection. The bright orange, green and purple against the black background was perfect for the lantern centerpiece.
The pillars of the lantern were cut from Glitter Ghosts Cardstock. The lantern top was cut from Purple Bats Glitter Cardstock and the top panels were cut from Halloween Stripe Glitter Cardstock. The lantern base and pillar covers were cut from Pumpkins Glitter Cardstock and the lantern ceiling and floor were cut from Orange Crackle Glitter Cardstock.
The first step was to glue the sides of the lantern together and then glue one support to the inside of each pillar. I really like the little ghosts pattern on the Glitter Ghosts Cardstock. It gives the illusion that the ghosts are floating around the inside of the lantern. The floor of the lantern is one point of interest, so I used the colorful Orange Crackle Glitter Cardstock. Finally, I glued the front covers, cut from the Pumpkins Glitter Cardstock, to the outside of lantern pillars.
Next I glued the lantern top pieces together. To add a little Halloween bling, I covered the underneath of the top, the ceiling of the lantern, with Orange Crackle Glitter Cardstock. I covered each side of the top with a panel cut from Halloween Stripe Glitter Cardstock.
Next, I glued the lantern base together. As with the lantern front pieces, the base was also cut from Pumpkins Glitter Cardstock. I then glued the pillars onto the base.
The last step was to glue the lantern top to the lantern. Now we are ready to add the Halloween details that make up the lantern centerpiece.
The SVG print and cut file for the small 4 inches high coffin comes with the skeleton face picture, frame, bat and RIP gravestone. The coffin was cut from the Spiderweb Glitter Cardstock and fits perfectly inside the lantern.
I added a little purple tulle around the top and bottom of the lantern, draping the tulle as it was done in those old horse drawn hearses. I added a little moss, a gravestone and the coffin inside the lantern. The bats flying around the outside were cut from Purple Crackle Glitter Cardstock.
The skeleton is sitting on more moss and wearing a hat cut from the reverse side of the Camo Ghost Glitter Cardstock. To add more bling, I wrapped the hat with tinsel twine. He’s holding an sign made from the Halloween Rub-ons. I added wire to a couple of the Purple Crackle Glitter Cardstock bats and glued them around the skeleton.

Hi, it's Joan and I'm here today to share a scrapbook page I made. Milo & Liam (my great-nephews) went trick or treating last year dressed as Batman and Spiderman. Their neighborhood has a parade which was led by a fire truck. They had a good time being in the parade, seeing the fire truck and eating candy!
I used the Spiderweb Glitter Cardstock for this page. I backed that paper onto the Wineberry Glitter Cardstock. Next, I added orange dew drops to each spiderweb. I matted the 5"x7" photo onto a Purple Crackle Glitter Cardstock mat. A strip of the Distressed Honeycomb cardstock (B side of Boo Words Glitter Cardstock) was added behind the photo.
The final touches were: Halloween sticker used as the title, glitter pumpkins with a bat sticker and a spider rub on added, "scary, scary, oh so scary" rub on added underneath journaling, part of a tag sticker used for journaling, white letters.
Thanks for stopping by today - be sure to check out the Robin's Nest store for lots of fun Halloween papers and embellishments!

I used the Fall rub-ons to create all the focal points of this card. They are easy to use and go on smoothly with no issues. The Turkey Glitter Cardstock was cut so I could use the flourishes on one card and the turkey on the other. The rub-on turkey was die cut into a circle and added to the card with foam adhesives for dimension. The rub-on leaves were added around the sentiment.
I created this Thanksgiving card with a Spellbinder die, cutting the striped side of the Leaf Glitter Cardstock to fit. The leaves were fussy cut from the same paper and added to the card front. The turkey was fussy cut from the Turkey Glitter Cardstock and inked before adding it to the card with foam adhesives for dimension.
The sentiment is from the Fall rub-ons and I tucked it amongst the flourishes and the turkey.
Inside I used the same Leaf Glitter Cardstock, using the striped side first, then the leaves on top. Happy Thanksgiving was stamped on white cardstock and added to the card.
Thanks for stopping by today.

With the season of ghosts and goblins fast approaching, I couldn’t wait to share my altered art Halloween Book featuring many of the Robin’s Nest spooktacular Halloween Collection.
Step 2 Adhere the glassine paper to the front and back of tags that fit inside the envelope pages and trim to the size of the tag. Punch a hole in the glassine over the location of the tag’s original hole.
Step 3 Apply elements from the Robin’s Nest Halloween Collection and your personal collection to each tag. Thread ribbon adorned with trinkets through each of the tags.
Step 4 Reassemble the book.
