Stampin' Up! Australia - Happy Hallowe'en


Welcome to this week's CASE-ing the Catty Blog Hop! Welcome from Tricia's blog.

This week the Blog Hop challenge is all about CASE-ing a project inspired by the Halloween samples from the Stampin' Up! Holiday catalogue.

CASE stands for Copy and Share Everything.  This whole blog hop is about using the current Stampin' Up! Catalogues to help you create.  Sometimes crafters need a springboard to just get started and the catalogues are certainly a demonstrator or customer's best resource.

A lot of Australians don't do Halloween and many protest that it is an American holiday and we shouldn't celebrate it....

Well....I LOVE Halloween...being a student of the dark arts and all.....it's an excuse for me to get out my retired goth clothes and play some Siouxsie and the Banshees while the kids from the neighbourhood come trick or treating.

Yes, you heard me....the families in our little Australian neck of the woods go trick or treating. In fact, our street is renowned for the Halloween spirit....families drive from elsewhere to our suburb to visit. Last year we had about 150 kids visit our door. My son's were SO excited. I decorated our front door (my American friends would call this the porch) with a Halloween wreath, pumpkins, spooky faces and I hid fake glowing eyes in the garden. It looked SO COOL!

Anyway....on to the project...

I used a jar from Kmart and filled it with large Jaffas. My label is from a retired set called Toxic Treats. I used the label from the image below as my inspiration and I flipped the landscape design to portrait. 

Here's my inspiration image:
