Halloween is nearly here! All over the world people are getting ready for spooky excitement. Are you making cards, decorations or other crafty projects to join in the fun?
Starting on Sunday 11th October it will be Shriek Week here on the Tin Teddy Blog – as well as on my Tumblr, Instagram, Facebook and Etsy shop.
Stand by for terrifying tutorials, revolting reviews, petrifying projects and creepy crafting!
Each day there will be a new Tin Teddy blog post (or two!) so stay tuned to see what will happen.
I will add links to the various items on this page so you can easily see if there are any you have missed.
Sunday 11th is a video tutorial to make this cute witch tag using stamping, alcohol marker coloring and various background techniques.
Monday 12th and there is a new set of digital papers in the Tin Teddy store on Etsy. Of course they are Halloween Digital Papers – ideal for those spooky projects.
As with all my digital papers, you will receive links for three different sizes – A4, Letter and 12″ scrapbook sizes.
And in case you were not sure what to do with the new papers, there is a tutorial on the Tin Teddy Blog to make some cute Doll Size Trick or Treat Bags using them – with a free template included.
Tuesday 13th and the post for today is a round up of some of the coolest Halloween themed pet products I could find on Etsy. All handmade and special for that important furry member of the household.
Wednesday 14th and today I have a little tutorial to show you how to make two easy Halloween projects.
One is a very quick to make Halloween, birthday or party invite card, and the other a simple decoration.
They both use the cute Monster Mash set of stamps from Lawn Fawn.
Thursday the 15th and the blog post for today is ten of the coolest, spookiest and most fun halloween craft projects on YouTube.
Plus another new set of graphics for this Thursday – Creepy Kid Clip Art. Sure they are very odd, and perhaps a bit scary. But I bet you can think of some cool Halloween projects that would be great with a Creepy Kid in the mix!
Friday the 16th and today I am reviewing “Super Scary Crochet”, a very unusual amigurumi crochet book by Nicki Trench. If you have ever wanted to make a cannibal cockerel, spiders web bunting or Doctor Death, then this is the book for you.
Saturday the 17th already! For the final Shriek Week blog post I have a tutorial to make some cheerful Artist Trading Cards using super economical products.
