Happy TGIFriday to you all! I'm so excited its the weekend--yay! Hubby is taking me to the movies tonight to see "Julie & Julia" cuz' I finally finished the fabulous book (yes, he does love me that much, lol) & to dinner w/o kiddo's--yeehaw! Now I lovee my children but I CANNOT wait until Sept. 7th to get their lil' bums back in school, hee hee---they're driving me & each other CRAZY!! I am ready for some peace & quiet in the house that's for sure! And other than that we have absolutely NO plans for this weekend other than some pool time! After last weekend we're still recovering, LOL!
Anywho, I've got a very long blog post for ya today--so make sure & go all the way to the bottom of this post so you don't miss a thing (maybe some blog candy, hmmm), 'kay?!! A Magnolia-licious Blog Hop & New Victoria Case for SCACD release!
So today the Magnolia-licious has a very special "Tricks-n-Treats" BLOG HOP for ya today! The Blog Hop starts at the Magnolia-licious Highlites Blog HERE & then you can hop along to see all the "frightfully fun" projects! But after me you need to hop along to Kerry's blog! The entire DT has made some fun fall cards & treats/favors for the hop today! I used the fabulous new My Mind's Eye "Boo To You" dp & embellies for all of my projects! All of the Magnolia stamps can be found HERE at Magnolia-licious!
First up this fabulously bewitching lil' "Tilda w/ Spider" found HERE at Magnolia-licious of course! I just layered a bunch of the dp to make stripes and added some fun spiderwebs with my Martha Stewart punch & added glitterdots to them for corner adornments! Tilda got some diamond stickles on her apron & diamond glaze on her witchy boots & hat! She's just so "witch-fabulous", LOL--love her! The sentiment is from the new PTI set "2009 Halloween Tags".
Second up is this fun boxy-bag from the Scor-Pal site--you can find the instructions HERE (its called a window box). I altered it by eliminating the top so it was open & did a ribbon handle instead! I used the Dracula-fab "Halloween Edwin" found HERE for the front of my box-bag! The borders were done with a fiskars border punch & I added some stars with glitterdots too. Edwin got some diamond glaze on his shoes & cape for shine as well. I filled the box-bag with pixie stix treats--I lovee to make these! Basically you just take 2 pixie stix & sandwich them in between 2 scalloped circle cut-outs & attach w/ Scor-Tape (which I used on all of my projects along w/ my Scor-Pal). I layered different colors of cardstock all cut out with my Nestabilities (Scalloped & reg. Circles & Pinking Circles) & then attached some more of the PTI's "2009 Halloween Tags" to the centers. Just a fun & quick treat & the kids love 'em!!
Just a side-view of the boxy-bag & the fun lil' tags I added to the side! Those spiders are from another Martha Stewart punch I bought last year ( I get mine at Michaels).
Last but not least I have another candy treat holder from the Scor-Pal site--directions for this are HERE(called Peek-a-Boo Treats box)! I used a Nestability (Labels 3) to cut the center & attached a transparency to the inside--inside is a bag of jellybeans! The front was covered with some more fun dp & a cute lil' spider embelly that came in the My Minds Eye "Boo to You" paper kit HERE!
Once again Susana's Custom Art & Card Design DT has samples featuring all of the new stamps on their blogs today (links on my sidebar) as well as Victoria Case's DT (find links HERE)! Today I'm showcasing the fabulous "Game Night" stamp--isn't this girly a cutie w/ her lil' buggy friends! I used some of my favorite DCWV "Citrus" dp--so bright & cheery! I colored this image up with Copics to match & added some diamond stickles to her skirt & the butterfly. The cute lil' grasshopper got a coat of diamond glaze (yes these are my 2 most FAVORITE products, lol & Susana keeps me supplied). Those fabulous flowers are Prima Caboodles found HERE--they're so pretty! The layout is this week's Verve Mojo Monday Anniversary sketch--Day 3! Can't wait to get the rest of these cuties inked up! Make sure & get yours so you can play too 'kay!!
Wheww, that was a long one today---LOL--I'm done now & off to run many errands :o) Hope you enjoyed all the projects today! See ya!
