Hi everyone it’s Stacey.
Thought I’d squeeze in one last Halloween post, so this week I’ve got some handcrafted spooky bats to share with you and I’ve decorated October month in my 2017 Create-a-Calendar.

I received a very sparkling delivery of pearlised papers at the beginning of last week and thought it would be a perfect opportunity to experiment with them. I used Charcoal Sparkle Print 300gsm to make the bats and as you can see from the photos the card most certainly sparkles, definitely a new favourite of nine. These bats would make a great garland, table decor or singular hanging decorations from the ceiling. I added a touch of fun with some googly eyes to give the bats a bit quirky character. Definitely something you could craft with children!
I was keen to make a start on my calendar and what a better month to begin with. Using the same card as the bats I cut out some spiders to decorate my month. The spider webs were made using Mercury Lustre Print Silver Card 300gsm, another beautiful colour which would be perfect if your wanting to add a touch of class to your projects. I chose to make classy spider webs The centre rose is crafted using Intensive Black 120gsm paper. You can buy a pick and mix box of pearlised papers/cards of colours of your choice on the website allowing you to craft some beautiful creations from wedding invitations, stationary, business cards and more. Start creating your box here.
I highly recommend the Create-a-Calendar, it would make a great gift for a family member or friend and you have the option to let them craft it themselves or your could create a lovely personalised calendar for them. You could get your children or grandchildren to paint a picture for each month, draw colourful pictures, hand/finger painting, or attach photos to each month of the previous years memories etc. The calendars are A4 sized giving you plenty of room to get creative.
