Well, I did it, it's very cute. Needs a bit more embellishing, but I like it. Info and more photos on my blog.

Great job. I am so intimidated to try this because it looks so complicated.

Don't be intimidated, it's a lot of little steps, but way easier than I expected, I thought it would be harder too.

This is just an estimate.

If you check out my blog I give a lot of details.

To cut out, maybe 30 minutes. There are 8 12x12 pages to cut out. I used my Expression, 12x24 mat, 6 - 12x12 black cardstock, 65lb weight, and 2 vellum (I only had 8-1/2 x 11" vellum so I had to do 2 pieces of vellum. Otherwise, it would have all fit on one page). I laid the 7" pieces out on my Gypsy so I could get the least amount of paper. Some pieces take an entire page, others can be put together.

I'd guess 30 minutes to cut out.

30 - 45 minutes to score all the pieces

30-45 minutes to glue, let set long enough to let go of the pieces.

I let the glued pieces dry overnight.

An hour to do the assembly in the morning.

I was doing lots of other Mom and wife stuff while cutting so I didn't time myself. I basically started when the Giants/Brave game started Friday night, and was done at the end of overtime. I was doing stuff between steps.

Just go slow, follow the pages, they make sense if you don't look ahead. Just do each page just like it says.

Hope this helps.

Love Awesome haunted house! Please post another photo when you finish embellishing - I would luv to see it. I would really like to make one of these but first I must finish sympathy cards, thank you cards, Halloween cards, AND an Anniversary card and altered memory box for my hubby! Thank you for sharing your fab creation!
