Welcome to the Village of Haunted Holtzville

Please join me on my new blog - where this project is included with many more crafty projects already added. Thank you. I hope to see you there.

I would like to finally introduce you to the Haunted Holtzville Village. I've been working on it for a couple of months I think. These houses are all made from the Sizzix Village Dwelling dies by Tim Holtz. Most of the embellishments are from Tim Holtz product lines as well.  There are a couple of videos - one is kind of an outtake - you'll see why when you see it.

A kind of jerky drone view of the houses in the village. 

Testing 1.. 2.. 3 trying to figure out how to make videos. This is the outtake.

I made the Halloween house outfit  2-3 years ago. Since then I have gotten much better at Halloween decor so I redid the embellishments with a lot of Tim Holtz stuff- crackle paint, door knobs, more skeletons, bones, a skull, ravens, toxic labels, a tombstone, etc. The house costume is much better now. Now if I can only up my photography and video skills, I can show you my projects better.

This is my real true finished project for #holtzforhalloween challenge by Sizzix using the 2017 Tim Holtz Halloween Sizzix products. So I'll be posting it on Instagram and Facebook.

I used the following 2017 Halloween Sizzix products:
Bigz XL Alphabet Dies - Gothic
Feather and Ravens thinlits
Moonlit Owl thinlits
Scarecrow thinlits
Trick-or-Treat thinlits
Village Graveyard

All the little cardboard houses are made from Sizzix dies and the Halloween house cardboard costume has Sizzix dies all over it.

Thank you for reading my blog and looking at the Halloween houses. Lucy

P.S. I do have one more major Halloween project to reveal - it's the whole collection of Halloween houses. That will be another post with another wonky video as well.


  1. Lucy, I am so impressed with all of these little houses! I know that so much time and effort has been put into making them so fabulous! I am sure they will be highly sought after at the fundraising event, and what a kind and generous thing to do. Thank you for sharing and inspiring me with each and every piece of haunted holtzville! You are very talented!

  2. I love Haunted Holtzville! And your house costume is fantastic!! How well can you see out in that costume?

    1. I can actually see pretty well because of the shutters. I am supposed to be wearing a black long sleeve shirt and gloves when I wear the outfit, but since that was just a test shot, I didn't put them on.

  3. I am just blown away with your work here! Haunted Holtzville is so original and creative, I'm at a loss for words! Let me just say everything is fantastic and I love it all - every last detail!!

  4. Haunted Holtzville is fabulous Lucy and your outfit is such fun - loved the video!
