October 2014 Challenge - Halloween

Hello. It is Kym here again, Design Team Leader for Bearly Mine Designs. 

Recently we held a Design Team call and in case you didn't see the post a few weeks ago we are delighted to welcome to the Bearly Mine Designs Design Team the following:


We look forward to working with them all.

It's also a sad day for us at Bearly Mine Designs as Tracey who has been on the Design Team for a long time now has had to leave.  We wish her all the very best in the future.

 Thank you for all the entries for last months’ challenge of an “autumnal colour challenge”. I hope you have popped back throughout the month to see the inspiration posts from the Design Team every couple of days. Every few days you will see cards/creations from a member of the Design Team using Bearly Mine Designs papers. They are all available in the Bearly Mine Designs Shop

Before I tell you about the topic of the challenge for October 2014 it is time to tell you about the winner for the September 2014 challenge of “autumnal colour challenge”.

Right onto information about the challenge.

The Bearly Mine Designs challenge for October 2014 is “Halloween”. We don’t go into Halloween so much here in the UK but it’s nice to have a topic for a challenge that is celebrated elsewhere in the world.
If you are stuck for some Halloween papers, Bearly Mine Designs recently released a set called "Halloween Fantasy".  This is a fantastic set of papers as you have the traditional Halloween colours of orange and black but you also have green, purple, blue and red so you can make very different Halloween cards/creations.
There is another Halloween set in the shop and personally it is still one of my all time favourites.  It is called “Halloween Hauntings”. What I personally like about this set is that there are Halloween inspired papers but there are also papers in the set that could be used throughout the year which makes it so much more cost effective.

Here is some inspiration from the Design Team. They have created some wonderful cards/creations for you to see.
