Halloween House

I came across an article in Scrapbooking.com magazine a week ago that had this most adorable Haunted Halloween House mini album by Camille Serra McClelland...so cute!

This is Camille's Halloween House...


I had to try one out for myself...and although not completely finished yet, I am having an absolute blast putting it together!

This is my version...


Camille's album is made of acrylic, and although I read through her instructions for making an acrylic album...I decided to go with chipboard.

I love that the front door opens!


I used Cloud 9 papers for the majority of the album, with a few scraps of this and that thrown in. The fence on the front is painted wood...adds some more dimension...

I added a spooky tree to the front, covered with Black Diamond Stickles.


And an old fashioned lamppost coated with Enamel Accents (a new favorite!) and Platinum Stickles.


All the windows are filled in with transparencies...

And my favorite part...the Vampiress in the top floor window! She was cut on my Silhouette at 2.25inches tall...I L-O-V-E how detailed the Silhouette can cut (when the blade is nice and sharp!)...she is four VERY tiny parts glued together...


I can't believe I had the patience for this!

I still have some more spooky things to add...moss to the front yard, a bat weather-vane and all the pictures and embellishments to the inside pages...I will post more pictures when it is all complete.

This was so fun to make...I have already started making patterns for different houses (my house included) and can't wait to get started embellishing them!
