It's MFT Blog Hop Time!

Well, I'm so glad you are here! I assume you are hopping along the My Favorite Things blog hop just fine, but if you've just happened upon us, be sure and start at the beginning, Kim's Blog, to take in all the new MFT goodness. This time, I thought I'd have a little fun with the Perfect Packaging jars and do something a little different with the Ghoulish Label set. This project is also a first for me in that it's actually a "hybrid" project! Yes, the paper is from the Houndstooth Digital Paper Pack. Actually, my printer is out of ink, so I found a local copy shop that let me send the downloaded file to them via email. They then printed it for me for only .38 cents a sheet for an 8.5x11! Pretty spiffy!

Want to know more about how I made this? I'm the How'd They Do That Tutorial Hostess over on the My Favorite Things forum on Splitcoast. Check out my tutorial HERE!! This was so fun and easy to make and I'd love to see ya'll make one. I think there are SO MANY possibilities with the Perfect Packaging jars. I think a ladybug made almost the same way would be so cute!! The labels sets are fantastic, but remember that you can use them to make tags and cards as well.

Here’s a card I did for the blog hop, too. (This post reminds me of the stores right now…Halloween stuff packed in with the Christmas stuff already out right next to it!) I used the new Santa Baby WTG set also from MFT that was so fun to color! I kept it simple and traditional here. I added the wood floor m’self and used Liquid Pearls to dress up Santa’s suit. He just better watch where he puts his hands!

So stopping here puts you at about the halfway point for the blog hop, so don't stop now! Go see what Michele at Paper Cuts has in store for you to feast your eyes on HERE!! I know it will be fabuloso!!

SUSIE Q-TIP: Houndstooth is harmful to the eyes. It's one of my favorite patterns, but I have to take a break from looking at it for too long! Even the copy shop guy agreed.

Supplies for the Spider Candy Jar project can be found HERE on my tutorial.

Paper: Pure Poppy, White (PTI), White Perfect Panels (MFT), Christmas Dots (Colorbok)
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black (Tsukineko)

  6. Oh my gosh!! That Santa Baby set reminds me of Christmas growing up when my step-dad would dress up as Santa for my mom's daycare. "Nanna" (mom) would have to sit on Santa's lap first before the kids! How cool! Thanks for the memories Susie.
