Feature Day at Gecko Galz

Today is my day to feature my Design Team project for 'The Witching Hour' over at  Gecko Galz

A quick and simple 6x6 card using an image from 'Haunted Ephemera', a pair of googly eyes and orange glitter card.

I took the image into Craft Artist and then added the sentiment, had fun choosing the right 'spooky' type font. Then put it all together and printed it out. Matt and layered into a piece of orange glitter card and stuck it onto my 6x6 card blank. 

Don't forget its the Gecko Galz Blog Hop at the end of this month, starting on the 26th, lots of fun & freebies to be had!!

I hope you'll join our Witching Hour challenge where the winner will receive a $25 shopping spree at the Gecko Galz shop.
The only rule is that you must use at least one Gecko Galz product, which can be something you purchased from the shop or a freebie.

The Witching Hour at Gecko Galz

A new month means a new Customer Challenge at the Gecko Galz and the theme for the month of October is 'The Witching Hour'
So why not play along - join the challenge with the chance to win $25 at the Gecko Galz shop!

October means three things  - Christmas is fast approaching but first the ghosts and ghoulies are training hard to give us all a good scare on All Hallows Eve! And its going to be time for the Gecko Galz Blog Hop - where you will get to see lots of beautiful samples from all our Designers and get the chance to enter into the Blog Hop competition to win prizes and grab some freebies!! Whats not to love about October!!

My first sample is a double journal spread, using  paper from 'Frightfully Delightful' and the lady from 'Haunted Ephemera'. The quote came from a web search, metal corners/brooch cameo/spider charm from The Craft Box and I used a small cobweb die and black sparkle embossing powder.

The backing paper was sized to fit the page and then I digitally flipped it so it was a mirror image on the other page. Added the words in bold and white.

My second sample is the 3 atcs which go in the pocket, all done using images from 'Frightfully Delightful'.

When I printed the first journal backing paper the writing was a little too big so I did altered it and reprinted, not wanting too waste anything I used the unwanted first print as backing paper for the atcs. I choose my 3 images I wanted to use then sized them just under 2.5 by 3.5 so they would have a border when cut up. Printed out, cut up, stuck on and embellished.

I hope you'll join in with our 'Witching Hour' Challenge, where the Winner gets a $25 shopping spree to spend at the Gecko Galz shop. (The only rule is that you must use at least one Gecko Galz product... this can be one of the freebies, or, of course, you can buy at the Etsy shop).
If you sign up for the Gecko Galz monthly newsletter, you'll be kept up to date with new releases, $1 Wednesday deals and be able to claim a free digital collage sheet.
If you pop over to the Gecko Galz blog, you will see all the fabulous designs by the Design Team - and maybe grab a freebie or two.
If you haven't a blog/and or/ on Facebook, head over to the Gecko Galz Papercrafting Group where there are more monthly challenges, with the chance to win a digital collage sheet.
