Crafty Secrets October DT Challenge & give-away

Good Morning!
It's time for the Crafty Secrets DT challenge for October, this month we're doing sewing.
I love sewing on my projects, I need to take the time to do it more.

I'm still going with the Halloween theme, I get in as many Halloween projects as I can before it's over. I love everything about Halloween, especially seeing the little goblins and their smiling faces!

I'm doing a give-away!
You can have a chance to win a kit I made of the supplies to make my Crafty Secrets door hanger for Halloween! I'll give you the deets below.

I thought it would be fun to make a Halloween door hanger for the little goblins to see when they knock on my door Halloween night.
See the little ledge? I love how Wendy Vecchi uses these little ledges on her projects. I asked her what she uses and she told me it was wood trim from Joanne's. Well, I don't have a Joann's here so I went to Hobby Lobby. I was in the miniature doll house section and they had this trim for doll houses, PERFECT! The trim is unfinished and in long pieces. I cut it with my Tonic scissors and colored it with my black Copic marker and sanded the edges with my t!m sander.

Supplies: Paper - CS Radiant & Earthy Paper Pads. Ink - Ranger Distress Black Soot, Copic marker. Acces. - wooden door hanger, Paint Dabber Pitch Black to paint the hanger, CS postcard chipboard piece, CS Halloween Greetings Creative Scraps, wooden bird, black crepe paper, Martha black glitter, Prima flowers, black brad, black eyelet, black Kaiser Pearls, 7gypsies key, tim key holder, little glass bottles, Pumpkin Delight & Eyeliner Black Sparkly Fluff, Scrabble tiles by EK Success. Tools - sewing machine, 1 1/2" circle punch, Tim Holtz filmstrip frames die by Sizzix, Tim sander, blending tool, Crop-a-Dile.

Check out what the other designer's have done, I can't wait to see!
Make sure and check out the Crafty Secrets blog, Sandy has a free download and a give- away too!

This is the give-away, it's a kit to make a Halloween door hanger like I made for the challenge. Everything's included except the black paint I used to paint the hanger and the black glitter that I put around the crepe paper on the punched circle that's on the bird. I'm giving you a full sheet of Halloween Creative Scraps so you'll have plenty of images to make some more Halloween goodies! And, I'm throwing in a cute Halloween stamp that I got at Michael's.
All you need to do is comment on this post and tell me your fave Halloween candy you got as a kid or your fave now!
Don't forget to leave me your email address so I can contact you. I'll pick the winner on Thursday, Oct. 21st.
If you're the winner and you have any questions about the hanger, email me and I'll be glad to help!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Have a great day, thanks for stopping by!

Hi Pam -

I LOVE your door piece, so sweet! When I was a kid, the thing I loved the most was when folks handed out homemade goodies like brownies, candy apples, popcorn balls - oh YUM! Sadly, those days are long gone. Today it is not safe to let kids eat anything like that unless it came from someone you knew well.

Katherine said...

Pam all your work is outstanding but the door hanger is over the top with that cute shelf. My favorite Halloween candy is candy corn, candy corn and more candy corn.

Chris Dodaj said...

That door hanger is just delicous! When I was a kid, we had a neighbor that gave us hommade buttery baged popped corn that, for me, was way better than the candy and we looked forward to it every year!
Thanks for the giveaway!

Melisa Waldorf said...

Awesome Pam!!! I love the key and movie strip!

Karen Denson said...

I love your door hanger. It's great and anyone getting ready to knock on the door would probably spend more time checking out the hanger than worryng about getting candy.
My favorite Halloween treat was and still is carmel apples. I don't think there is anything better than biting into a rich delicious carmel apple.
Have a happy halloween.

This is great and one like it would look wonderful in my house. This would blend in so well with the vintage look things I already have out. The ledge trim is a great idea. My favorite Halloween treat was the fantastic popcorn balls one lovely neighbor made from scratch. A true treat.

What a great door tag ! Including an actual key is inspired and being a cat-lover, I had to laugh at the 'beware' sign over the cats. I loved Mars Bars as a kid.

DeniseLynn said...

Such a great door hanger! {Thanks for sharing the great ledge idea ... I so want to go to the craft store NOW. LOL} My favorite candy as a kid was those peanut butter taffy things wrapped in orange waxed paper - I don't even know the name but I'm thinking they were by Brachs. My favorite now is Twix or Reese Peanut butter cups. Yummo! I hope the little ones get plenty and are willing to share with mom.

What a great door hanger! Looks very spooky and 'Halloweeny'!

My favorite candy at Halloween was Paydays. I'd pick off the peanuts one by one and eat them, then eat the carmel filling. :0)
