Halloween 12 x 12 Sampler!

Well... it's finally ready... with 23 hours to spare!  LOL
I decided to go "traditional" and used the color palette of the NEW Designer Series Paper called Happy Haunting  -  Basic Black, Tangelo Twist and Very Vanilla  - I used several of the images from the Hawl-o-ween Treat Stamp Set and Boo to You Framelits Bundle Love love all the bundles in this Holiday Catalog!

Drum Roll....


I also decided since I was limiting the color combo,  I needed something to make it "pop" !  So I used lots of Black Heat embossing, and some fun NEW Black Glimmer Paper , along with our Gold Glimmer Paper for some fun bling! Pictures don't really show the awesomeness...

Here are a couple close ups:

When I get really smart, I'll have one of those cool carousel things where you can see all the products I used... I think it even links to my store!  I'm sure you clever stampers have seen those on the "cool" demo blogs... LOL... I'm a work in progress... Heck ... I'm 60... I think I'm always going to be a work in progress... WOO HOO!
In the meantime... Just contact me at glendastamps@comcast.net if you'd like info on how and what to order... Kits for this project are pretty impossible, as I'm not allowed to pre-stamp images... Kind of limits what would be in the kit.. Perhaps I need to consider a PDF tutorial option... People have been asking... oh dear... I'm sure getting in over this old head!  
Basic instructions are the same for each month - the background is a 12 x 12 piece of cardstock, then an 8 1/2" square layer, then an 8 1/8" square layer.  The nine squares are 2 1/4" squares, then usually layered with a 2" square - sometimes that layer is designer paper - then comes the fun "chotchky" things... how do you spell chochky?  chotchkey?  Yeah... good luck with that one... I think someone made it up... who cares how you spell it, you don't need to know how to spell to stamp... isn't that a good thing? 
 Thanks for stopping in!  Truly hoping to get more consistent with the posting here... 

and then... .there's those VIDEOS I plan to make...
Check out "this thing"
Any guesses what this is?  Abby's hoping its a new cat toy!  Hah!
Stay tuned... it's gonna happen folks... and you won't want to miss the first one!


  1. Tchotchke. Just sayin'. Loving your blog!

  2. I bought all the stuff to make my phone mount last week, but haven't done it yet, so you are ahead of me! Not sure when I'll actually get around to making a video. That part scares me a little.

  3. Love the project. Also think it is great that you are working on creating a video. I have not ventured there yet. Thank you for sharing your talents. Have a blessed day

  4. awesome job on the blog Glenda and love your project!.

  5. Hi Glenda,
    Wondering where you got your cell phone mount. I have mine already to go but can not find the cell phone mount. Thanks for your help.
