13 Days of Halloween Blog Hop (Day 8)

Welcome to the 13 Days of Halloween Blog Hop.  This hop is scheduled from Oct. 19 at 8:00 am through Oct.31 at 11:00 pm (central time).  It's that time of year when the nights are all spooky and creatures are known to wander the forests.  So sit for a spell with a nice cup of hot apple cider and check out all the great projects.

If you just happened to come to this blog, you are at the beginning with Lisa Peters-

We're so excited to be doing this hop and we have a fabulous lineup with some very talented ladies. There will be lots of fun projects, along with some great blog candy, and a great grand prize for this hop.

The hop is a 13 day hop with only 13 blogs to visit so you will have plenty of time to make it through the whole hop lineup 13 times.  Check out each blog and see what blog candy you can win at the individual stops.  Please come back all 13 days to see great projects.

Here is the complete lineup:

To be eligible for the grand prize, you must visit each blog and leave a comment. You also MUST visit my blog and leave a comment on my blog for the day and also become a follower at "Scrapping With Lisa" and my facebook page: Please let me know if you don't do facebook and I won't count that against you for the blog candy.  Now for the blog candy, I bet you are wondering what it could be.   It will be a big treat bag full of goodies.  I will also be posting an individual prize for each day of the hop also that everyone who hops that day will have a chance to win.

Velcome to my blog. Mwa ha ha.

I'm hosting a Halloween party for a bunch of little ghouls this weekend and I will be handing out ribbons for the best costumes. I thought instead of buying some I would make my own. 

As you can tell, I love rosettes. I used the rosette part of the set Vintage Halloween Party Bags from SVGcuts. I cut the rosettes at almost 6:5 inches tall.

The paper ribbon part that attaches to the back I designed in my Inkscape and added it. I was going to use clothe ribbon but thought coordinating paper ribbons would look nice instead.
Hot glue gun to the rescue. I added embellishments and remember the tag from yesterday? I just glued a jewel on it where the ribbon would go through and attached it to my rosette. Those little tags are very versatile.

This little tag is cut at 2 inches across by about 2 1/2 inches long using the Bags, Tags, and Boxes with my Cricut Expression.

Paper used: Cloud 9 design - Specialty Holiday card stock.
BLOG CANDY - It's like Halloween candy but without the calories.

I'll be throwing something from my stash into a BIG box each day and at the end of the hop I will draw a name and one lucky person gets it all. Please read how to qualify below.

This time around I'll be throwing some Paula Deene gift tags in the mix. These tags come in handy when you don't have time to make one of your own or you can add a little extra something to make it your own. Sorry no picture today.

There are only two requirements for this: 1. leave a comment with your email address 2. Become a follower or state it in your comment if you are one already.

(Every time you leave a comment, you get your name in the drawing again so if you stop by all 13 days then you're name will be in the drawing 13 times so who says 13 is an unlucky number?

Beware of ghosts and werewolves as you continue on your journey to Tami and we'll see you tomorrow. : ) Jearise in Lorby's World.
