Welcome to the 13 Days of Halloween Blog Hop. This hop is scheduled from Oct. 19 at 8:00 am through Oct.31 at 11:00 pm (central time). It's that time of year when the nights are all spooky and creatures are known to wander the forests. So sit for a spell with a nice cup of hot apple cider and check out all the great projects.
If you just happened upon this hop, then welcome, but make sure to go back to the beginning and start at Lisa's blog.
We're so excited to be doing this hop and we have a fabulous lineup with some very talented ladies. There will be lots of fun projects, along with some great blog candy, and a great grand prize for this hop.
The hop is a 13 day hop with only 13 blogs to visit so you will have plenty of time to make it through the whole hop lineup 13 times. Check out each blog and see what blog candy you can win at the individual stops. Please come back all 13 days to see great projects.
Last week my BFF and I got together and did a Tim Holtz Configuration box using Graphic 45 Circus paper. Then on Sunday we took a class to make a Halloween one. Well we came home and had to "improve" it, as we like to say. The 3 top boxes were supposed to be turned backwards and a piece of paper stamped with crows went across it. So I cut out all of the crows and perched them on the edge of the top instead. However, we thought those were 3 lost boxes for trinkets, so we turned them over and added paper and trinkets. We also added Tim Holtz Halloween tape around the edges. There are different little trinkets that came out of my Halloween box, such as Martha Stewart items and Recollections. Halloween twine was used to wrap around the thread spool. Stickles were used to glitz up the skull. The bottles have a small label on them that says witch hazel. The bat in the top left is hanging, as well as the ghost in the bottom left. Halloween paper was torn and added to the sides of the lid for the box. We opted not to use the piece of plastic that comes with the box, so that it didn't close it up. The edges of the box are distressed with Tim Hotz distressing ink. The same is done on the sides and the back. Tim Hotz feet were put on the bottom to finish it off.
