Halloween cards for all your ghoulish friends

The Fall & Halloween Collection is now available on Etsy! Find a not-so-scary card to send to your favorite mortal friend this fall.

Introducing three new Halloween cards:

Greetings Foolish Mortal

This card is inspired by Disney's Haunted Mansion, featuring a stately mansion on the outside that is hiding your favorite ghost host inside. Say Happy Halloween or just hello with this modern greeting card, perfect for your "living" friends.

Boo to you

This not-so-scary greeting card features a crystal ball with all your favorite Halloween sights, including a pirate skull, sorcerer's hat, poisoned apple, a bow-tie bat and much more. The artwork and lettering are both hand-drawn by me, digitized for crisp & clean printing.

Tricks for Treats

Some of you may remember this card from previous years, but Chloe (my pug) just had to come back to see if she could get some more treats. And yes, that is actually my pug begging for treats on the card! This is the only card with an inside greeting, "Happy Halloween!"

Exciting Shop Updates

All cards & art prints are now printed in house by me! I invested in a professional-quality printer and archival paper to give you the same high-quality products that you can expect from Enchanted Type. This will allow for quicker turn-around times on custom sizes or colors, and allow me to personally produce each product with love and care for you.

I have also started to replace the use of fonts with my own hand lettering to give each design a personalized, handmade touch. I hope to always create unique, original items that you won't find anywhere else, and this is one more way I can make that happen.

I hope you're as excited about the new developments for Enchanted Type as me! Stay tuned for the introduction of the Fall/Thanksgiving Collection. Right now, head over to Etsy to shop the entire Halloween collection!

When Two Holidays Collide at Disneyland

The Haunted Mansion at Disneyland is taken over by Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas between the months of October through December. His story has the unique honor of combining two seemingly separate holidays into one. Or as Jack says, this is what happens when two holidays collide!

Since we are in that wonderful inbetween time when it's too soon to start decorating for Christmas but you're still finishing up your Halloween candy, it's the perfect opportuntiy to take a visual tour through Jack's Haunted Mansion takeover.

Your Printable Fall Checklist

One of the reasons why I became a stationery designer is that I believe in celebrating every occasion, every holiday, every little moment. Every moment we have together is precious, something I have been reminded of recently, and I hope to help people cherish life's moments, big and small.

Fall is full of little celebrations and traditions for our family, and I wanted to share them with you with a colorful Fall Checklist.

Use this Fall Checklist to get inspiration for ways to celebrate this season. Plus there's room to add your own traditions!

All free printables are for personal use only. If you would like to use them for anything else, send me a note at elainalynndesign {at} gmail.com. Thanks!

I hope this checklist helps you celebrate today!

Happy First Day of Fall + Important Announcement!

Fall is officially here! Bring on the pumpkin spice lattes, caramel apple treats and rustic home decor (OK maybe I've already jumped into the fall spirit around here... it never lasts long enough!). If you're like me, you love to celebrate the change of the seasons. To help you celebrate today, I've got a free printable and a very special announcement!

This will be one of the last posts you will read on elainalynn.com. Don't worry, I'm not stopping the blog! It's time to make the leap over to our shiny new URL, enchantedtype.com. In order to do so, it will take a little down time to get everything switched over. But I have a brand new look and concept for the site that I can't wait to share with you!

To make sure you don't miss the switch-over, sign up for the Adventure Club mailing list. Newsletters go out at the beginning of every month (sometimes twice for special announcements) and include free goodies like this spooky art print I have to share with you today!

This art print is inspired by a classic Disney Halloween movie, the cult-classic, The Nightmare Before Christmas. While I was never a big fan of this movie, I love the overlay that takes over the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland for Halloween time. The songs are also fantastic, which is where this quote comes from!

This free printable went out to the Adventure Club members at the beginning of October, but you can find a similar design now in The Shop!
