Scrappy Moms Stamps Halloween Hop!

Spooky Saturday to everyone!

Thank you for joining us on the Scrappy Moms Stamps Halloween Hop! I don't know about you but Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! The kids and I always pick out costumes as soon as they hit the shelves and the candy wait patiently around out house for several weeks for Trick or Treaters to come. :)

For this Halloween I decided to try to make a banner. I learned a few lessons on the way...one being - if you are going to use a rosette, cut a shape or circle to go directly top of it before you add your letter. I didn't and... well, you'll see!


LOL It's not horrible but I wish I would have added solid colored circles beneath my "BOO". Here are some close-ups of the individual letters...





I used Birthday Bash for the banner, Happy Hauntings for the font and the witches hat, the spider is from Doodlecharms, and the bat is from Paper Doll Dress Up. I use 3 stamps from our brand new Halloween set Bewitched -


All in all, I had fun making this project - it was a little time consuming but it turned out pretty well. Oh, and did you notice all my cute costume rubber duckies? I found them at Michaels for $1 a pair!! :D

I hope you found my project frightfully enjoyable! Your next stop on the hop is the FANG-TASTIC Lauren from Lauren's Creative! (Be sure to leave a comment on each stop for a chance to win a Scrappy Moms Stamps set of your choice!)

Love that Banner!!!! Banners are HOT right now:)

Jennifer said...

I love the banner! I just watched a YouTube video on the Rosette with your Gypsy, then another with your scallop punch. The scallop punch seems easier than the way I did it! I love stamps for holidays as I like the sayings more than the images for stamping and coloring. Thanks for the opporunity to win this set!
