I was so nervous about cutting magnet that I totally avoided it. I found out it cuts really smoothly! In case you are interested in cutting magnet material, here are the settings I used with a deep cut blade and housing:
Hope you like my project! I am really loving how it turned out! Wish me luck!

Now on to my project!
I used a gallery wall frame to make this wall hanging. All patterned paper is from the Martha Stewart "Vampire" mat pad. The ribbon around the outside of the frame is "Celebrate It" brand, purchased at Michaels. It was glued to the frame using Fabri-Tac. I apologize for some of the photos, my camera and lighting were just not cooperating with me! I know there is a lot of detail that you just can't see so I will try to describe my techniques as best I can.
The chandelier was cut in black cardstock from the French Manor cartidge. I inked the entire cut with Versa Mark and embossed it with some vintage photo Tim Holtz distressing powder, then added the jewels with the I-Rock. I used hot glue to attach the chain to the frame.
The word "Spooky" was cut from Tim Holtz Grungepaper with the Happy Hauntings cartridge. I painted over the top layer with brushed pewter Distress Crackle Paint. I added glitter to the background layer.
This chair was cut from French Manor from Grungepaper and painted with
antique linen Distress Crackle Paint. I then inked over it a bit with brown ink to give it an aged look. The pumpkin is cut from Happy Hauntings.
The witch here was cut from the October 31st cartridge . I ran a sheet of white cardstock through my Xyron Creative Station, stuck the witch on the middle then poured yellow glitter over it. I love how evenly the glitter goes on the paper using this technique!
The haunted house was cut from the October 31st Cricut cartridge using Core-dinations cardstock.
The mirror was cut from French Manor with white cardstock then painted over with tarnished brass Distress Crackle Paint. I then inked the edges with black ink. The spooooooky ghost is from Happy Hauntings and cut from vellum.
Creepy was cut with Grungepaper from the Happy Hauntings cartridge and painted with fired brick Distress Crackle Paint.
And lastly, the spider and its web are from Happy Hauntings. I cut the web from grey cardstock then sprayed with Silver Sugar Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels. The spider was covered with black Enamel Accents by Ranger to give make it tougher and give it a glossy tone.
Now for my giveaway! A Halloween themed selection of goodies!
