September Pals Hop!

Welcome to the September PALS HOP!  This month, we're featuring Fall/Halloween themed projects for your inspiration!  If you've hopped over from Gina Shaw's blog, I'm stop number 14 on the PALS HOP and I'm glad you hopped in!  I'll help you "hop along" from blog to blog where you'll find great ideas for paper-crafted creations from the Stampin' Pretty Pals!  Should you hop off course, simply click on any of the links in the PALS HOP LINE-UP below and you'll be back on track!

My first project is a witch's shoe favor box. I found the pattern as a general search on the internet, sorry I don't have a link for y'all. I believe the original pattern came from Ellen Hutchinson. I created my shoe in black, with a pumpkin pie interior. I used the five petal punch to layer three flowers that have been edged in black ink, a small flower in elegant eggplant from the boho blossoms punch, and an orange button from my stash.

I love how the tissue wrapped "goodies" looks like one of my socks! *Cackle*

My second project is a simple card using the Loads of Love, and Loads of Love Accesories stamp sets. I get a lot of mileage with this set! ;) I LOVE the glittery pumpkins- so girly!

In addition to the Loads of Love stamp sets, I used baja breeze, perfect plum, certainly celery, and pumpkin pie cardstock and markers, and a scrap of patterned paper from Bo Bunny. I used pumpkin pie 1/4" ribbon and some tangerine art glitter.

Hop along for more inspiring ideas from Jason Casper's blog stop number 15 on the Fall/Halloween PALS HOP!  Thanks for "hopping" by!

If the shoe fits...

I love crazy socks! Absolutely love them, and cant wait for cooler weather to wear them. I have socks for every season and holiday, too. Well, cool weather ones, that is. Its a little tough to pull off long kooky socks in the summertime without being weird. Then again if the shoe (sock) fits...lol!

My card needs a sentiment, and maybe a little glitter, but I'll need to go shopping for that. I found this singular stamp while on vacation in Branson, MO last year, and I'm clueless as to the maker. The paper and marker colors are Stampin' Up Elegant Eggplant, Summer Sun, Only Orange, and Green Galore. I also used the scallop border punch from SU.
