Create your sandwich in this order from the bottom up” magnetic platform, bottom plate, cardstock, thinlit face down and finally, the top plate. It’s important that your paper is cut pattern side up so that when you place the door thinlit into the paper, it will open correctly. This procedure took a lot of trial and error. Only cut one piece of paper at a time when using a scoring die. Otherwise, you will cut though one of your papers. After cutting out all of the parts and stamping the Trick or Treat, etc., you can decorate your house. Use tacky glue for the window and door frames and tacky tape for holding the house together. This is important because if you try to use glue to hold the house together, it will fall apart several times during assembly. You can use shingles, punched our spider webs or a spider web doily for the roof. Before shutting the house, adhere the velum to the inside of each window and attach the light with permanent glue dots. The light can be turned on and off by reaching through the front door of the house.  Haunted Houses

When I interviewed JK last night he said in the last year he’s learned more than he learned during his entire college career. When I look at how much information I’ve absorbed just out of curiosity and interest, this became really apparent to me. I’ve been a voracious reader, and I’ve learned more about people than I have in my entire life. It’s true that when you work for somebody else you do what they want to you to do every single day.
