Countdown to Halloween

Here it is! My Countdown to Halloween magnetic calendar. Each date was hand-stamped or embellished with a Halloween image. All dates with a 'number' are adhered to the actual tin (securely). The images all have magnets on the back so you can move them around (what's the point of making something fun like this if you can't move things about)?

So, what's all involved in making this? Well, all the products shown here (images) are Stampin' Up! Some of the sets are retired, but hey, I'm not going to let my old stamp sets just sit around and do nothing with them.

While there are many images on the tin, there are two MUST-have products that you need. The Cast a Spell designer paper and Spooky Treats rub-ons. If you're looking for other fun Halloween sets, be sure to check out Batty for You and From the Crypt .

These products are available on my demo website.

A close-up.

I saw this on Stampin' Addicts today. This has to be the absolute cutest thing I have EVER seen. I have to try and make one. What do you have around the edge of your tin that looks like a frame? Also how did you make the magnet with the skull behind it. Does it have one of those glass rocks glued to it? Sooo clever!!
