Pink By Design Halloween Hop!!

**** Click HERE for my current GIVEAWAY!! *****


Hello Everyone!! If you are coming here from Lisa`s Blog Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons - Welcome!! If you are just stumbling upon this hop, head back to Sarah`s blog to start from the beginning!! Pink By Design is also having some giveaways for the hop!! They are giving away one stamp on each blog along the way, as well as a grand prize - A Cuttlebug!! I would LOVE a cuttlebug! It`s the next thing I `need` to buy for my scrap room... Be sure to comment on this post - and for an extra entry become a follower (and leave an extra comment letting me know).

Here is the lineup for the hop today...


Emily @ http://www.createserendipity.net  (next stop)

Now that Bria is getting a little older, decorating for the holidays is getting so fun!! She gets so excited and when she see`s the decorations she tells me how beautiful they are! :) So sweet.... 

Here is my project!! I got part of the idea from a magazine and the other part of the idea from Sarah`s (from Pink Cricut) Halloween Wreath. (HERE to check it out!) 


I know it`s hard to see in this pic, so I took some close ups of all the parts.

I used the September Pink By Design stamp of the month, Guess Who, for my project, along with the Mini Monsters cartridge. The paper I used for the rosettes was from a package of Recollections paper. On that note, if you plan on making rosettes, make sure to use the thicker paper... When I was scoring this is would tear if I wasn`t careful. 


 I cut a bunch of felt circles (traced the rim of a cup on some cardboard, cut it out, then used the cardboard circle template to lay on top of a couple sheets of felt to cut around) and used my new sewing machine to sew around the outside. And yes, I realized I need a lot of practice!! Some of these circles look like they were sewn by a 5 year old! Then I cut a bunch of circles in regular white cardstock and stamped the Guess Who characters onto them using StazOn ink. I colored them in with my Glaze pens by sakura. Then I used Tim Holtz black distress ink to ink the edges. 


I made 3 different sized rosettes. The middle sized rosettes had the Guess Who stamps in the center. 


I used some epoxy brads from Wal-Mart for the centers of the smallest rosettes. 



The biggest rosette had another smaller rosette in the center and then I cut the spider from Mini Monsters and glued him onto the center. I used some stickles for her cheeks and some googly eyes from the dollarstore. I strung the felt circles and rosettes together using twine from the Pink By Design store. 


Hope you like my project!! My plans are to make a matching banner for another wall in this room!! Now hop on over to see what Emily has to show you!!
