Welcome to the JourneyBlog Hoppers Make Amazing Blog hop!
I’m so happy to have you hoppin along!
If you have arrived from Kim Lamos’s blog, you’re on the right track! If Not, that’s ok too! Just continue the hop and you will come full circle!
I decided to pull out my Boo and Vampire Treat Dies and show you just how versatile these fun dies are to use.
When looking at my cute BOO ghost die I knew right away I wanted to make him into a journaling box on a scrapbook page. I pulled out a ruler and my Silver Marker and went to town drawing my Journaling lines. I also thought my little ghost paired well with the Fall Fest prints and used that as my focal point and drew my color inspiration and design from.
The “balloons” were created using various sizes of Oval punches. The Black Licorice Twist Twine was perfect to tie my balloons together and holding for my ghost.
The sentiment is from the Ghostly Treats stamp set.
I also love how the Oval Frame makes my little ghost look like they are framed like a picture.
The 2 Black Licorice pieces of card stock are just waiting for my little Sophia’s trick or treat photos. Two super cute scrapbook pages for Sophia’s Album.
I then wanted to show you how you could use the dies on a card front.
Here is my little Vampire peeking into the scene. I love this printed paper with my little Vampire; so spooky and dark. The printed paper is the other side of the Ghost I used on my scrapbook page. Love those double sided prints!
I folded his little Vampire Wings down so it looked like he is holding the sign “Happy Haunting”.
I gave my little Vampire a little sparkle with the Sparkle Silk and Turbo Teal Silk.
This card will fit inside our A6 envelopes.
Finally I wanted to create a slightly different treat holder using the dies.
My little Boo Ghost and Vampire hold a little Hershey candy bar perfectly.
I love the Wiggle Eyes to add a bit of character to my Halloween friends.
Here is a quick video on how to create the little box for your Hershey treat.
My featured stamp set for October is the Hello Fall Bundle. To receive the PDF file for this month’s project place a min. $25.00 online order with me and I’ll send you the unlock code to the PDF file and video.

First,?I am sorry but I didn’t get time to make the Wood Grain technique video yesterday, I’m hoping to get to it today.? I do however have a nice Progressive Scrapbook page for you just in time for Halloween.? :)? I had a workshop last night and the hostess requested Halloween projects.? We did a treat holder, a 6 X 6 scrapbook page and an invitation.?
Here is the 6 X 6 page that they made at the workshop:
I showed them how they could take this 6 X 6 page and up it to a 8 1/2 X 11 scrapbook page.? Here is that version:
I then showed them how they could take the 8 1/2 X 11 and up it to a 12 X 12 scrapbook page.? Here is that version:
The stamp set we used was the House of Haunts #111574 $22.95.? The card stock is Basic Black, Rich Razzleberry, and Old Olive.? We also used the new bat punch #119279 $15.95.? The Designer Series Paper that we used was the Wicked Fun Specialty #117400 $11.95.? We used the White Gel pen on the Owl Eyes as well as on the bats.? I like this effect and makes them pop off the page.
Today is my daughter’s 19th birthday and we are spending the day together getting manicures, pedicures and then shopping for her dorm and college.? On Sunday we will be bringing her to Michigan State.? I’m going to try and get the video done, but if not I have the Halloween invitation and the treat holder to show you yet. 🙂
So I thought since I had internet access at the Starbucks I would post my 12 X 12 Scrapbook Page swap that I’m in at convention.? I’m in 4 different swaps a 12 X 12 (2 page spread) Scrapbook swap, a 3D project swap (I showed you the pieces yesterday), something made using the Big Shot NON card stock and a decorative Pin.??? I had to make 11 Scrapbook pages any occasion so here is my pages: ?
My technique on these pages was using the Shimmer Paint to emboss the ornaments and add shimmer to the pages.? I used the new Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Whisper White card stock.? Inks are Cherry Cobbler and Old Olive.? I also used the Big Shot to create the Peace, Joy, Love & Cheer.?
Here is a close up of the Ornaments so you can see the shimmer and shine:
We are off today to Hesperia to visit my brother and his family at their cottage.? My Sister and her family and my other brother and his family and my Mom and Dad are all going too so it should be a very nice time together.? We will be celebrating my Dad’s birthday and enjoying our day together.
I showed you a couple of pages yesterday that I made for my niece’s wedding album, well today I’m going to show you the album cover.? The album is 6 X 6 and the color is the Stampin’ Up! Natural.? I took the album and embellished it to make it more elegant looking.
I tied the Basic Black Striped Grosgrain ribbon around the side.? I?typed the wedding date on the computer and punched it out with the Designer Label punch.???I took the punched piece and?stuck it behind the matching Vanilla Hodgepodge Hardware piece and glued it in place.? I used the Baroque Motifs stamp set and the Basic Gray ink pad.? I first inked up the stamps then I used the Champagne Mist Shimmer paint and sponged it over the inked image before stamping onto the album.? Once stamped I poured on the clear embossing powder and embossed the images.? I then applied the 1/2 pearls on the flower centers using crystal effects.?
