Stars are my absolute favourite pattern, whether on paper or fabric.
So I created a couple of different colours of the same pattern for you to use on your craft projects.
I think that they will work just as well for Halloween themed projects as they will for Christmas themed projects. I am using them both on my December Daily Album (YES I am attempting it again this year ! )
Leave me a comment if you would like these produced in different colour ways
Created A4 for ease of printing
Seriously, I know I don’t get up at stupid O’Clock every morning, but when did I miss the fact that sunrise isn’t until 07.40 today, I have actually been up since 5.30, but that’s another story, So I did expect to see the sunrise this morning but I didn’t expect it to be having a lazy morning !!
Have I got anything to share with you this morning, not much actually I have been working on a bunch of Christmas stuff, some for the December Daily project and some personal stuff I am hoping to get done as gifts for friends. I have also been working on some Christmas card designs, typographical ones, obviously.
I will start posting all my Christmas designs next week once Halloween is safely put to bed for another year !
So I will leave you with another Halloween font, DB Fright Night, although it isn’t free it is only $3 (about £1.90) this is from Lettering Delights, I like this as it isn’t a cute font but it doesn’t go along the grunge or horror route either, it is quite elegant and tasteful and with all the flourishes and swirls I think it will really appeal to scrapbookers and card makers.
You could if you felt so inclined just add some seasonal Autumn decorations rather than the creepy Halloween variety.
I have to admit that the three dishes of conkers are the sum total of my autumn decor and they are a neccessity rather than for aesthetics (they have a chemical in them that wards off spiders . . . . who knew ! )
Martha Stewart has some great and not too time consuming projects on her site, I particularly like the sewn pumpkins they look like something you could whip up whilst watching the TV.
Been getting a lot of work commitments out of the way before half term
plus I had a minor word press blip, about 5 days ago I lost all my appearance and settings and formatting on anything word press related, but it seems ok now so back to blogging.
a few more Halloween bits for those of you who appreciate my design style.
The type design I included in a couple of different sizes so that you can use it as patterned paper and also as a tag design the other designs are sized so that they can be used as tags
The stars design is to be used as a background or simply print and use as patterned paper

Enjoy and as always leave me some feedback.
Well it has to be done really . . .
I know we don’t “Do” Halloween and it is very “American” to decorate and celebrate this event, before I get any nasty comments that isn’t a slur on anyone who does celebrate or who happens to be from across the pond.
I am lucky that my kids are still into getting dressed up and knocking on the neighbours doors for hand outs of sweets and chocolate. We live in a fairly enclosed housing development so doing the whole trick or treating thing is relatively simple. The kids do however follow a couple of simple rules, above all absolutely no “tricking” we avoid this part of the ritual by only approaching houses of people we know or houses that are displaying obvious signs of welcome for the trick or treat brigade.
finally manners, no jostling, no snatching and always say please and thank you.
Anyway I figured I would link you up to Lettering Delights who have some fab offers on at the moment $1 on alphabets, fonts, graphic sets, clip art and paper packs.
I particularly liked their DB Jack-o-patterns 2
They also have some really great ideas on how to use the fonts and dingbats.
Ok I found this and although its a little creepy, just a little I really liked it, this “toe tag” printable could be used for party invites, or on treat bags or as a journalling card on halloween layouts
This site is a great source of inspiration too loads of ideas for tags and decor etc . . .
go over to Brooklyn Limestone and have a mooch around and do some downloading
