Blog Bop! Howl-o-ween Projects to Die For!

I've been a-boppin', friends, seeking seriously sinister projects to inspire your tricky treating this year. What might my devilish charms have lurking in the corners of your darkest, dreary dreams? Let's take a peek, shall we? Hop on my broom and hang on tight! That is, if you dare to ride along...

Spooky Card by Kim Hughes

Moxie Fab Alert: I love the burst of colors on this white card base--an unusual take on the typical color schemes of Halloween. I also love how my eye is drawn into the bat first, then carried along by the stars along the bottom to the right, then to the web which draws me in and upward to the smaller bats with the dots behind, and finally up to the ribbon. It's a sweet trip to the top and it's simply moxie fab!



Moxie Fab Alert: Patchwork is all the rage these days and I not only love the patterns that Sherry has combined to create the panels of this perky pumpkin, but I also love how she's used her exquisite skills to create a 3-dimensional centerpiece out of paper. This guy is sure to grace any table with its presence!


Moxie Fab Alert: What a clever way to use those ever-popular Bingo cards, don'tchathink? The polka dot ribbon handles ground the orange in the titles nicely, and I love the addition of the stamped tombstone and tree for a splash of eerie green! Who wouldn't just love to receive one of these this Halloween?

Creepy Crawlies Card by Raspberry Kate

Moxie Fab Alert: Monsters are all the rage this year, whether for Halloween or otherwise, and this cutie-pie treatment of this one-eyed friendly freak makes me grin from ear to ear.

Halloween Labels by Celeste Rockwood-Jones

Moxie Fab Alert: Once you've taken your toiling boiling brews out of the cauldron, dress them up with these terrifyingly terrific labels that would make any good witch proud. Concerned about time and all the haunting you have left to do? They're available as a free download! So click on over, it's as easy as casting a spell!

Little Monsters Card by Kazan Clark

Moxie Fab Alert: Again, monsters rule the day and these colorful, goofy, toothy guys would make any little spook giddy with Halloween joy!

Boo Bag by Kimberly Crawford

Moxie Fab Alert: I love the cute little ghost hovering in the bottom left-hand corner, and the fact that he's with his little pumpkin friend makes it that much sweeter. And speaking of sweets, I'm thinking this little treat bag would make any treat look extra yummy!

Little Monster Card by Megan Hoeppner

Moxie Fab Alert: I love the innovation in this card. Megan's used an envelope template for Frankie's head here and added some fun embellishments to "seal" the deal.

Spooky Lantern by Megan Hoeppner

Moxie Fab Alert: In this graphically great project, Megan has applied a vinyl transfer to this swanky lantern from Ikea. Great gift/decor idea, great result, all around great!

Moxie Fab Alert: I adore the classic vintage style of this card, but what I adore even more is all the color that Beatriz has incorporated into the project. Charming and delightful! Go Beatriz!

Boo Card by Danielle Flanders

Moxie Fab Alert: What's not to love about this card? I love the color scheme, the way she's contrasted damask and polka patterns, glittered and naked chipboard, and pretty ribbon with the rustically treated chipboard. The cous de grace? The spiders upping the freak factor, giving this card a spooky spark that rattles my bones.

If you're inspired like I am, I'm pretty sure you can't help but want to start creating immediately. Once you've whipped up something wicked, why not enter it in the Paper Crafts October Gallery Challenge which is about all things hauntingly Halloween? Click here to enter AND to see over 300 additional inpsiring projects that will stimulate your sinister spirit!

If you'd like to leave some love for these ladies, I've got some "Halloween" to share with you from American Crafts. You've got until Sunday, October 25 at midnight MDT!

Happy haunting,

~Cath

PS Have you linked up your project inspired by Kim Kesti's Tuesday Trigger yet? We'd love to see your "take" on her inspiration!

PPS Have you sent your personal Tuesday Trigger to tuesdaytrigger@gmail.com yet? I'm looking for a new one to post on Tuesday of next week! Maybe it will be yours!
