Die Cutttin' Divas Halloween Challenge

I enjoy all the holidays immensely, but Halloween is my favorite!

I also like to make little goodies for a few of our neighbors, so combine making treats and then doing it with a holiday theme, well, that is so much fun.

I used this weeks challenge to do just that.

Our challenge over at Die Cuttin' Divas this week is Halloween.

.



I'm sure you've heard of the tradition of "Booing" someone.
You leave a little package of treats, ring the doorbell, and run.
The person who gets "Boo'd" is supposed to then "Boo" someone else.

I found these darling "Boo" boxes at the Silhouette Design store and went to work making them for my neighbors.


They are made so that the handle can hang on the door knob.

Here are pics of each "Boo" box separately.


I added a little ribbon and twine to dress them up a bit.


Now to decide what to fill them with, and the fun begins!



Supplies used: cardstock - black, grey, purple, white;  pattern papers by Authentique and Doodlebug; cut file from Sillhouette; twine from American Crafts and Target; ribbon from Michaels.

Now pop on over to Die Cuttin' Divas and see all the fabulous inspiration the rest of the design team has come up with.


Hope to see you playing along with us!!!!

Cut It Up Just In C.A.S.E. Challenge

If you don't know what C.A.S.E. means, here is an explanation from the CAS (Clean And Simple) blog:

CASE – Stands for “Copy and Share Everything.” The best inspiration for cardmaking comes from admiring other people's cards. Sometimes also called “scraplifting.”

I will admit that I peruse Pinterest and do a lot of "scraplifting". It's fun to draw inspiration from someone else, but put your own twist on it.

Our challenge is "Just In C.A.S.E." CASE a project, share a link to the project you're CASEing.
Don't forget the die cut!

Our sponsor is My Scrap Chick and you have a chance to win a $20 certificate to their store.






Our sponsor was so generous and allowed each of the design team members to pick a file from their store that we'd like to work with. Thank You!

I saw these cute cards on (you'll never guess) Pinterest!

The blog is Welcome ZÜ Le Blog




I used the cut file Batty 4 You from The Scrap Chick to create my version.

Here is a pic of him with his wings folded closed and his eyes are peeking out.


Here is a pic of his wings open.



Supplies Used: card stock - white, black, light pink; patterned paper by Authentique; cut file from My Scrap Chick.
