Crafty Secrets October Linky Party

Hi Everyone! Crafty Secrets Linky Party Time.  It seems like I spent most of September and October with my "Creating with Vintage Halloween CD" for some reason. I just can leave it alone ;) There are so many great papers and images on this CD, and it's so easy to use.  My projects today are all created with elements from the CD.  Your surprised right? lol

These frames I picked up at the $store.  They are 8x8.  I've had them in my "to alter" bin for quite some time, so now was the time to use them.

Some of the elements I added in Photoshop and some I cut out and added myself, like the "Happy Halloween" title on this one.  I printed it out, then colored and cut it out, matted it and then physically added it.

There are a number of great elements on the CD that are png files. ( which means you can just drag them over onto your paper where ever you want .. without bringing any background with them).  For example the black lace on the one below.

And the decorative base I have the crow standing on in the this one.  It's so easy to make changes.

I also wanted to show you how I used the papers and images on the CD to make these invitations to an upcoming  event  I'll be selling at.

Being digital,  gave me the option of what size I want them to be. I can print them out on a full size sheet , 4 on a page, to cut and hand to out friends, or to email to them.

I'm excited to see what the rest of the Crafty Secrets Design Team has to share today. Please pop over to their blogs and she what they've been up to :)

    Ahhh - fall leaves, I miss fall big time!! DD Paula sent me some fall leaf pics from UNL campus the other day just to make me jealous (so I sent her pics of the beach :)
    LOVE the sunset too.
    Been browing - havent had much time for that lately - wish I could pop into the open house at the flower shop in NB - stopped there in Aug. when I was back.
    And looks like you are in for some fun with all the weddings coming up - cool!!!
    Maybe some of the leaves with hang around for Thanksgiving - we will be home for almost a week - hope its not too cold or the DH will grumble the whole time :)
