Welcome to the Pals September 2017 Blog Hop. Thank you so much for joining us today. This month our theme is “My Favorite Holiday”. Sit back and enjoy the view while the Pals treat you with projects for the upcoming Autumn and Winter holidays.
Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.
Christmas is my all time favorite holiday, but I couldn’t resist showing you some of the Halloween projects I’ve been working on.
These Clear Tiny Treat Boxes filled with Sixlets were fun and easy to make. There’s a link to buy the candy at the bottom of this post.
The Patterned Pumpkins Thinlits Dies were used to cut out the two pumpkins on the left from the Spooky Night Designer Series Paper (DSP).
You can make all kinds of cute treats by cutting out these DSP pumpkin images.
When you open the card, there’s another fun pumpkin hiding inside! This makes me really happy. Hopefully the recipient will smile when they find the hiding pumpkin. 🙂
Here’s the Spooky Cat version of the card. These cards are really fun to make. Would it surprise you to know that I have six more versions, but I was afraid you might not want to see each one? 🙂
Some people don’t care for Halloween, so I made a Hello Fall! card with the same format. The Hello Fall! stamp is from the Merry Cafe stamp set.
Here’s the measurements for the card:
Pumpkin Pie base 4-1/4″ x 10-1/2″ scored at 2-1/2″ and 5″
Very Vanilla 4″ x 5-1/4″
Spooky DSP strip 1″ x 5-1/4″ Adhere to bottom of Very Vanilla
Basic Black strip 1″ x 10-1/2″ scored at 2-1/2″ and 5″ Adhere the 2-1/2″ part right above the Spooky DSP. The black strip is not adhered to anything from 2-1/2″ to 8. Adhere the 8″ to 10-1/2″ to the front of the card
Cajun Craze Circle is largest Stitched Shapes framelits circle
Very Vanilla Circle is the second largest Layering Circle framelit
Pumpkin Pie banner is 1/2″ x 4-1/4″
At the very bottom of this post you can see all the supplies I used to make these projects and also the Halloween children’s book that inspired my family’s love of Halloween and Pumpkin parties.
