Hi and welcome to all my craft loving friends, and visitors.
I would like to welcome my newest follower, and thank you for choosing to follow me.
I do hope to see you visit as often as your time allows.

Been busy making a Vintage Halloween Album today so I can join the Frilly and Funkie Challenge.
The last challenge I managed to get a Top 3 badge with my Harry Potter card, so I was a very happy bunny as I haven't been making these types of cards for very long.
Sorry this is a bit picture heavy.

The Album is 7"x6" in size.
Some of the papers are Graphic 45, and some are Pink Gem ones.
The images I found on the internet as I didn't have any Vintage Halloween ones.
I inked the edges of all the papers, and images with Rusty Hinge DI.
The flower was one I have had for ages, and the gold leaves were created with Starlight Paints, and then die cut them.
Added afew skeliton leaves some bats and a vintage clock face.

Thank you so much for your visit.
Lots of crafty love.  JENNY.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.

Beautiful and fun! Love the flip open secret notes on the inside. Lovely images and design! Thanks for playing along with us again at the Frilly and Funkie "A Very Vintage Halloween" challenge!

This is most impressive, and I love the Fall/Halloween motifs you've selected. I took a long-ago class in making this kind of never-ending card, and found it difficult! Never tried another one. You are to be congratulated at being so adept & successful at the technique, because your card is just so well done. Also at selecting elements which tie together, & using the wonderful G45 scenes. Well done on the card, also being selected as Top 3. Quite a feather in your cap, as you are new to the technique! Good for you! TFS &Hugs.

Liz said...

Oh WOW, this is stunning, Jenny! Perfectly made with so much detail. xx

Jenny, this is great! I love all the little interactive fold outs and layers. Such a clever design. Love the vintage images, and the fact that it's cute and not at all ghoulish. Lovely work! Thanks so much for sharing with us at the Frilly and Funkie A Very Vintage Halloween Challenge!
