Velcome To The Little Hop of HORRORS!!!

MUWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! So I tried to make the title sound really spooky and ran out of room to include my evil laugh... hahaha! WELCOME HOPPERS! Are you thoroughly spooked and amazed? I know I am! You already know that today is the start of our Halloween celebration with a blog hop organized by my good friend Nicole of Canadian Nickel Scrap'n. If you're currently hopping, you should be arriving here from the Fabulous Eulanda's blog... wasn't that Caramel Corn Box AWESOME?!? If you haven't arrived from Eulanda's blog and are just now joining us, hop to the bottom of this post for details on how the blog hop works.


And now for my scary good fun before you head over to Gloria's blog on the next stop of this hop. Today I've got the "Welcome" sign that I will be hanging in my foyer this Halloween. I used my Simple Frame Gypsy cut file as well as the pumpkins and faces from the Pumpkin Carvings Seasonal Cricut Cartridge (just like the one I will be giving away... see below). I inserted a piece of acetate into the frame that I dabbed with slate alcohol ink mixed with blending fluid and stamped with a web and a spider using Staz On. The "Welcome" message was done using the Happy Hauntings Cricut cartridge. Because I used my Gypsy for this project, OF COURSE, I have Gypsy cut files for you!!! Click HERE for the Simple Frame (I adjusted the simple frame to fit this project. The cut file is a much smaller version) and HERE for the Pumpkin Faces.


Isn't this soooo neat?!? The alcohol ink makes the acetate look like marble and gives the overall project an aged and "weathered" look. I LOVE how this turned out!

Prizes Up For Grabs

  • Simply Betty Stamps - Set of 5 Halloween Digi’s
  • Tickled Pink Stamps - Halloween Digi’s
  • Tiddly Inks - $10 Gift Voucher
  • Scrappy Moms Stamps - Haunting we will Go stamp set
  • My Pink Stamper - Stamp Set
  • The Greeting Farm - 2 Halloween Digis
  • Scrap Hut - October 31st Cricut Cartridge (North America Only)
  • Winners for the prizes above will be drawn after the hop.
  • And I'm giving away the Pumpkin Carvings Cricut Cartridge to someone who leaves a comment here on this post.... don't you just love blog candy? :) I will pick a random winner using random.org on Monday and post the winner here on my blog. Good luck everyone!!!

How The Hop Works to Win Those Prizes:

The hop begins over at Barbs awesome blog and ends with Nicole. So if you're just now joining us, you will want to head over to Barb's blog to start the hop fun from the beginning (click on the highlighted "Barb"). Each blog will direct you to the next in the order of the hop. Be sure to leave a comment at each blog along the way because some lucky hoppers are going to win the very cool prizes listed above and you can't win if you don't leave comments. You will see the most incredible projects, learn some really cool stuff and I'll see you again on your way through. Enjoy the hop! :)

I hope you all enjoyed my project for The Little Hop Of Horrors. You should now be on your way to Gloria's blog for the next freightfully delightful project on our blog hop. Have a fang-tastic time and thanx for stopping by! :)

Past 7 Days....

I Love Being Hit By Mack Trucks

Ok, so my friend Cindy came over to play with all her new Stampin Up goodies.  When I first looked at the Yippee Skippee stamp set I fell in love with all but ONE stamp, "Never Underestimate The Power of Two"????  What the heck does that mean???  Is that supposed to be a "couples" stamp, like for Valentines or weddings or something?  I don't know, but when you apply that sentiment to alcohol, well..... Isn't it JUST so obvious how perfect this sentiment is?!?  I mean, it was like being hit with a Mack truck!  LOL!  Cindy and I were SOOOO proud of ourselves!!!  This card is AWESOME!!!!  We added the "or three" to the end realizing that it is just funnier that way!!!  We used a TON of Stampin Up goodies for this card: Inks and Papers - Crushed Curry, Calypso Coral, Bermuda Bay, Basic Black, Whisper White Stamp Sets - Yippee Skippy, Happy Hour Tools - Big Shot, Banners Framelits, Paper Piercer, Paper Piercing Mat Additional - Linen Thread,

You'd Think I'd Have Had Enough!

Wow.... so HOW many times can I use this image??? HAHAHAHAHAHA! I can't help it! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this Victoria Case Magical Sophie stamp !!! But, I promise, this is the last time you'll see her this season. I've got WAY too many new and oh-so-cute stamps and goodies coming and I'll have to use ALL of them this Halloween.... you know how it is. So I did this card for The Town Scrapper (which, BTW, is where I got this cute little gem). Today starts the sketch challenge for the week over there. If you'd like to participate, click on the link above. Of all types of challenges, sketch challenges are my favorite. And this particular sketch is super fun just because of all the design elements that are so perfectly placed. Check back in tomorrow... I will be announcing the winner of the October 31st Cricut Cartridge. There's still time to enter, here's THE LINK for the details. Good luck everyone! :)

Dealing With A Deep Pantry

Well... I am putting things together in the new house.  We've moved and I'm starting to find stuff in the mountain of boxes... unfortunately, my camera cord is not one of them!!!  So sorry in advance for the pics that are coming in the next few postings while I look for it.  But with Kevin's surgery over with and getting out of cramped quarters in the apartment, I'm finally getting my life back and into the swing of ORGANIZING the new home!!!  Needless to say, after such a long time of not posting, I have a few things to show you.  But I'm going to start with the pantry. When we first purchased the house I had grand designs to turn this DEEP pantry into a step in-pantry by removing the shelving that is currently in there and replacing it with thinner shelving (going from about 20" shelves to 12" shelves).  There is nothing worse than a pantry that hides stuff because things get buried in deep shelving.  But after paying movers and buying window coverin
