Happy Halloween

A couple of years ago, my wife and I set out to create our own card crafting company, Cherries Jubilee Creations. Naturally, I did all of the illustrative work, and my wife handled all of the PR and marketing. Although our little company never really took off, these kits made a great portfolio piece. And I am sure they helped me get my job at Provo Craft!

In honor of Halloween, I thought I would share some of my illustrations from our Tricks & Treats card kit. This was the back of our packaging and showcases all of the kit's contents.


My favorite elements from this kit were the Halloween paper dolls that I created. Here are close-ups of each of them. You are welcome to print them for personal use. All I ask is that you include a link to my blog when you post the projects you make with them. Thanks!






Our kits also included these 9 tags and embellishments. And just as I side note, I crafted the term "Hallowed Greetings" was quote in Legally Blonde: The Musical! "Welcome to the hallowed halls of Harvard Law." I felt that it sounded kind of creepy! :)  


And this was the sheet of word strips and borders. I illustrated them to look like printed ribbons.


To help get the word out, my wife enlisted her favorite paper crafter to create some projects. Here is a set of treat bags that Melissa Phillips made for us.
