Welcome to the Wacky Watercooler Blog Hop! This is my first time participating in this hop. I am so excited to be able to have a part in this hop along with such talented Stampin' Up! demos.
If you have been following the hop, then you came here from My Tanglewood Cottage. Don't you love the Christmas cards she posted? To continue in the hop, simply click on the 'next' image on the bottom of this post. This is a circular hop, which means that wherever you begin, if you continue to go to the 'best' blog, you will eventually end up where you began. If at anytime you want to see a full list of participants, click on the 'Home' button.
Since this is October, I decided to focus on Halloween for my projects. I have three projects to share today: a card, a scrapbook page, and a candy holder.
I really wanted to show off the Spider Web Doily on this card so I used a pretty simple sketch. I don't normally do much for Halloween, so I don't purchase Halloween-exclusive stamp sets. I challenged myself to come up with projects using other sets. Having a stamp set, such as Among the Branches, that covers a few holidays helped a lot!
This little candy holder was made using the Gift Box Punch Board from the Holiday Catalog. I again featured the Spider Web Doilies. (Can you tell I love those?) I cut thin strips of black cardstock to make paper grass as a filler for the box. If you have a paper shredder that would work great for that!
I've been wanting to do more scrapbooking, since that is the reason I first joined Stampin' Up! I used the doily and the Among the Branches stamp set again. For the word 'spooky' I punched 1" squares and cut the letters of of them using the Little Letters Thinlets. And since I don't have Halloween paper, the Black DSP came in handy!
