Lori Whitlock October Blog Hop

Welcome to the October Blog Hop.  Halloween is just around the corner around these parts.  I recently purchased a Heidi Swapp Lightbox, but the Halloween icons were sold out. I found the Halloween phrases, but I wanted some little icons.  Well I figured out how to make some custom inserts.  I used Transparency.  Lori's Cute Spooks collection had just the icons for the project.  I first made the project in Photoshop Elements, then I printed on the transparency paper.  My printer revolted at first.  It did not care for that transparency sheet.  I did a quick search and found a tip on YouTube: tape all four corners to a regular piece of paper.
I used some washi tape at each corner, and that did the trick and tricked my printer. I cut my strips out and slid them into the Lightbox!
And BAM, custom Lightbox complete.
