3 Girl Jam and Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons have teamed up for this fabulous blog hop! We are using PPPR cut files, digital clip art, and digital paper packs (http://
And now for my project.......
I chose to create a Halloween Tag display for my project. I was really inspired when I was looking through the FAB digital paper choices at Pretty Papers, Pretty Ribbons but ultimately I chose to work with the Sunny Skies Swirly paper collection. I have to tell you that this was my first time using digital paper and I LOVE IT!! To go along with this collection I chose to use the Halloween Harvest Crinkle Ribbon from the new Seasons Bungle and the Goblin Green Crinkle Ribbon from the Spooky Bundle.
Love love love this blue paper. I wanted to mix in some color with the oranges and yellows from the other tags. I fussy cut another swirl to give this tag some dimension. Platinum stickles on my witch since she's a diva ; ) and I embossed my Happy Halloween stamped sentiment. Check out the awesome vintage black button at the top...you can get these HERE.
Ok this is probably my favorite tag & let me tell you why...I used another vintage button from 3GJ and used it as a knob to hang my frame...cool huh?? I used some of the Goblin Green crinkle ribbon for this..just to add that pop of color. My spooky sentiment is inked on a piece of the new burlap trim from 3GJ...love this stuff!!
And lastly my ghostly tag. I used the Iron Gate border punch from Martha Stewart on a strip of black CS. I only adhered the bottom portion so there was a slight pocket where I tucked in my baby ghost. You will just die laughing when I tell you what my "moon" is made of. I have a fan in my craft room and it blew the backing from one of the dimensional foam dots I was using for my ghosts onto the tag...light bulb moment...I inked it up and stuck it down..looks pretty good right?
This was a super fun project to make & I can't wait to display it on my desk at work. I hope I was able to show you some alternate ways to use your papers by distressing them and mixing it up a bit and using it for a Fall theme.
Wanna see what is up for grabs????
