World Cardmaking Day Blog Hop! {plus giveaway}


It's October 1st! Happy World Cardmaking Day!!

Welcome to the World Cardmaking Day Blog Hop hosted by Super Joy!

If you had arrived on this page from Amanda's Craft and More, you are on the right track. If not, just click here to start the hop from Joyslife.com. In case you get lost along the way, just refer to the following list of participating blogs to get back on track:



Last Tuesday, I posted about the Lettering Delights' Best Witches Cut Its set that is in my LD Fall Picks Bundle. I cut out many of the files and showed you how they looked like after I have assembled them.Today I will show you a card that I made from some of those cut outs.


To put together this card, I used the witch (with broomstick) as the main image.


 I cut the "Trick or Treat" banner into 2 parts and placed the "Trick" portion on the top of the card.



I am so amused by this teeny spider. The body is only three-eighths of an inch wide! The web and the spider together measures only 2" long.



Here is the other portion of the banner that I had placed at the bottom of the card.



Let's take another look at the entire card again. I had a lot of fun making this card and I hope that you've enjoyed it too. I used Make-the-Cut and the Silhouette SD to cut out all the layers. The frame is from Lettering Delights' Oblong Frames SVG set and the patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye's Mischievous line.

Now let's proceed to my favorite part of the blog hop. It's time for a giveaway! Lately I've been really into 6" x 6" paper pads. I love the smaller print and I especially like that they take up so little room and are so easy to store. For today's hop, I am giving away a......

  6. OOPS, I have no idea how this goes for notifications, but Trina Macko is signed into your site as Craftluv45... I never use the google or gmail accounts for mail... do blogs send to those if we sign in with them...? Anyhow, thanks again, and love the spider, too! (P.S. If we can't enter twice, I think I messed up! I am NOT good at these contests, :(
