Let’s face it, Martha does Halloween better than anyone. And her Martha Stewart Crafts Halloween line by EK Success Brands is no exception. The quality is top notch and all of the designs work together.
Let’s start with the glitter (which you have a chance to win if you leave a comment on this post!). I’ve written articles about Martha’s glitter before and I’m definitely a big fan (maybe even collector). This 6 pack features great halloween colors in a perfect size. And as mentioned before, a little does go a long way as you can see in my projects below.
My daughter is going to be Tinkerbell for halloween and we needed to find some green shoes, but it was turning out to be quite difficult. So we picked up some silver glitter shoes from Target, gave them a quick spray with some adhesive, sprinkled on the green glitter, and TaDa! Now all we need are the white puff balls and we’re all set.
And I’ve always been a fan of Martha’s signature glittered pumpkins. I picked up a bag of the mini ones, added a good coating of spray adhesive and glittered my heart out. And I still have a bunch of glitter left over. Now I just need a nicer plate to put them on.
I received the drippy goo edge punch. This punch is definitely top notch, and they’ve made a design change to the edge punches so the edges fold in, saving you a bit of storage space, and they stack quite nicely.
I made this little treat bag using the goo punch and the goo letters. The drippy goo provides a nice edge and a quick and easy project, especially if you have to make a bunch of treat bags for your kids class like I do.
The paper pad provides 24, double sided sheets of quality cardstock. The designs coordinate well together, along with all the other elements in the product line. Many of the designs feature embellished images with glitter or flocking. And with 4 sheets of each set of designs, you definitely have enough to make all the projects you want to. I have tons of paper left over and can’t wait to make my halloween layouts for this year with it.
I made these little canvases using all of the products provided. I used the glitter with some sticky alphabet letters (similar to the red liner tape) and they turned out perfect. The cupcake liners make a great accent. And all the papers from the pad coordinated perfectly.
Here’s a close up of one of the canvases. I used the spray adhesive again to coat the spiderweb felt ribbon and wrap it around the canvas. The spider sticker is great! It’s hard to see but the spider is flocked and the red eyes are tiny crystals. And the glitter coated the sticky letters perfectly.
Last, I used up some of my scraps and a circle punch to cut out these little circle toppers for some candy jars. It’s great when you can use every last piece!
- Great colors and designs, and everything coordinates well
- Quality, quality, quality
- Perfect for decor, scrapbooking and more!
- Sells out fast (Michaels never has enough), but try shopping online
- Wish the cupcake wrappers came in even more designs
Overall, the Martha Stewart Halloween line did not disappoint (as if it ever does!). The elements work so well together, making for easy decor, scrapbooking layouts, cards, and more! I can’t wait for next year’s line, and sooner than that, the Holiday line!!
