September 2013 Tour de Freaks


It's time for the Tour de Freaks…brought to you by the Control Freak Swappers!  We have an awesome lineup of Halloween Projects for you this month!  Pick your poison and take the tour…it will take you around the loop until you return here.  You probably just came from Justin Kreiger's blog...weren't his projects fun?


I have a fun card for you first.  I love the gingham circle from Kind & Cozy as the background for cut out Halloween Happiness.  I also liked punching the circle from the Sweater Weather Designer Paper…gives it some extra depth!  The Chevron Punch adds some interest, along with the Black Candy Dots!



My second card is what I made for the latest Control Freaks Fall Swap a couple months ago.  I had so much fun with the skeleton from Toil & Trouble.  I placed the strips of Witches Brew Designer Paper on the diagonal for a more dramatic look.  The Oval Framelit is sponged with Pumpkin Pie ink.  It is hard to see, but the Basic Black is embossed with the Honeycomb folder, then I repeated the look with the Six Sided Punches from Summer Starfruit cardstock.  Halloween Hello is stamped and popped up on the front one with a little Rhinestone bling.



Last, I made up a fun little nugget box that holds six Hershey Nuggets as a little favor for Halloween.  On the front is the fun greeting from Halloween Bash.  And under the nuggets is the Eat if you Dare greeting…of course you can only see it AFTER you've eaten the candy!  lol!  I wrapped the nuggets with 1 x 3 strips of Witches Brew Designer Paper.  I added Dazzling Details around the edges of the Deco Label Framelit on the front of the box for some extra sparkle.



And here is the inside that slides out with the wrapped nuggets inside:



Ok…aren't those fun?  Now it's time to move onto the next Freak in the lineup, the awesome Mindy Backes!  I love her designs and know you will, too!
