Happy Halloween (oldies but goodies)

I had another plan for today's post but I have had several people asking about the Halloween design I did last year that was featured in the Cricut Chirp.

There are a lot of new people who are reading and following my blog.  With Halloween just around the corner, I wanted to be sure you knew about these designs so you could use them for decorations  (if you like them).

This version will work on a baby bug or Create - The design is redone in two sections to be used separately or put together for a full sheet.

This version was redone using the Alphalicious font - the post explains how to substitute whatever font you like so you can cut the design.  The posts go into a lot of detail about the specifics of cutting  - these do take a long while to cut and you have to be patient in removing all of the smaller bits, but the effect is worth it in the end.

If you click this LINK you will see all of the posts with a "Halloween" label - scroll to the bottom and work your way forward to read about the Halloween mesh and the lanterns (and a few other designs).  There are links to the files in each post.  I recently moved the mesh designs to 4shared - they had been downloaded over 3000 times at the prior site (so I know somebody likes them!).

I moved the Pumpkin Picking and Ghost Fence designs to 4shared tonight - they are both adjustable designs.

Let me know if you have any questions about these designs.  if you have used them for your decorations or scrapbooks I'd love to see how they turned out!


  1. thanks Diane, I just downloaded the Happy Halloween.. so cute. Wondering did you cut it out in black and them put it on a orange paper and then wrap it around a candle??

  2. Me again, or maybe you just wrapped the black around the candle???

  3. Hi Sandy,

    If you go back to the old posts you will see how I did it - please don't put the paper around the candle - that would be a fire hazard!

    I tried different types of lights and used a glass cylinder vase - you can use various types of battery operated candles too.

  4. Well dud... wouldn't that be stupid to even think of putting it around a candle... :-(

  5. I love your Halloween designs! I would love a copy of the cut files.

  6. Hi Jeri Ann,

    I am glad you like the designs - they were fun to do!

    If you go to the entry for each design there is a download link at the bottom of the post - just click and follow the directions to get your copies.

    Have fun - I'd love to see what you make!
