Make Your Own Spooky Village

Good morning, scrappers! Our October issue is hitting newsstands now, and I wanted to give you a peek at this spooky Halloween village on page 42—one of my favorite projects in the magazine. The incredibly inspiring Claudine Hellmuth “built” the houses, and our super creative Senior Associate Art Director Deb Berger styled it for the photo shoot.

Claudine posted the directions for the project on her blog last year, and she even offered some templates to make the process easier.

Then Deb added some pumpkin stickers from Reminisce and a moon and bats from Martha Stewart Crafts. She also used a Martha Stewart Crafts border punch to make some fun black picket fences. Clever!

What’s your favorite project in the issue?
