Once Upon A Halloweenie Blog Hop

If you are looking for the ALL THINGS ALTERED/FALL BLOG HOP...Please click here:  If you would like to proceed on to the Once Upon a Halloweenie Hop...then keep reading.


Hello and Happy Friday!  Welcome to the Once Upon A Halloween Blog Hop sponsored by Paper Patch Crafts Online Store.  We are so happy you are joining us for the fun release of the Webster's Pages Once Upon a Halloween Line.  They are so cute!  I have had such a blast working with them.

You probably found my blog today by hopping over from Shelley P's blog at Scrapbooking for Fun.  And, if you came upon this hop by lucky chance you can hop on back there to start at the very beginning. Unlike many hops, this one is very short and sweet.  You will only need to visit 4 blogs to complete it, and there are prizes to be won just for participating.

This is what I created to share with you today:
This layout is of my darling grand daughter last Fall.  Webster's Pages products can be purchased  NOW at Paper Patch Crafts

Close up details.  I did some fussy cutting of the pumpkins and vines.  I also used distress inks to add some color.

The Lace is so pretty.  Here is a little corner embellishment I made with this beautiful Natural Circles Lace Trim.  I added some stickles and distressed it a little with ink to give it a more aged look.

I also created a couple fun cards!!
Not every frightening thing is so obvious.  My bathroom scales terrify me!  I decided to play off that idea using an acrylic overlay along with the cute paper.  The Stamp is from Mo Manning.

Trying to be creative I decided to use the fun die cut paper and cut and fold it to create this corset card,

Just to take it one step further I created these fun little folder tabbed photo and journaling mats to fit inside the card.  This would make a fun gift or invitation idea.

I have a fun giveaway for you today just for visiting my blog. I create rubber and digi stamps over at Shelley Bean Stamps, and I am going to give away this adorable digi for your Halloween fun.  To receive the digi, become a follower and leave me a comment on this post along with your email address.  You MUST provide your email address in order to receive the digi.  If there is no email address....then I won't know where to send it to you.  
(and just as a little secret, if you visit the other hop I am in this weekend, you could snag another fun Halloween Digi)

Please Hop on over to Joanne's Blog at Using Up the Pretty Paper to proceed on this hop.  If you get lost...here is the line-up!

Fabulous layout!!! Super cute digi too... dotssecret at yahoo dot com...thanks!

Shelley said...

Fussy cutting: I had a separate sheet of scrapbook paper with the pumpkins and vines and I detail cut it all out and attached it to the page I was building my layout on. It takes time and patience...hence it's fussy! :)

Teresa Godines #6857 said...

Super fun cards. Love the first one the most. TFS
