Stampin' Addicts Holiday Catalog Blog Hop: Ghoulish Googlies Bundle


Welcome to stop #12 on the Stampin' Addicts Holiday Catalog Blog Hop.  If you're hoping in order, you've just come from Betty's Kitty Stamps Blog.  (Isn't that cat just awesome?  I've just added it to my wish list.)  If this is your first stop on the hop, no worries: all the blogs are looped together in a circle so you won't miss a thing.  If you get lost along the way, or just want to chat about the hop, visit the main hop thread on Stampin' Addicts.

First of all, there are so many amazing things in the Holiday Catalog, I had a hard time picking what to use for the hop.  But several years ago, Stampin' Up had a Halloween set called Booglie Eyes that I never bought and I've always regretted it.  So when I saw Googly Ghouls, I was not going to make the same mistake twice.  And the Ghoulish Googlies Designer Kit is only $4 more when you buy it in the bundle with the stamps so who wouldn't do that? Right?  You get enough goodies to make ten treat bags and you will have left over tags for other projects too.  And honestly, I just can't stop creating things with this stamp set.  It is so cute!  If you come back on Wednesday and Friday next week, I'll be sharing more information about the blog hop projects.

The first project I'm sharing is actually a CASE of a project that was demonstrated on the Main Stage at Convention by Shannon West.  It uses all the things that come in the Ghoulish Googlies Bundle: the glassine bags, tags, stamps and adhesive-backed googly eyes. I added texture, color and bling to the bag in a technique that Shannon demonstrated and I'll tell you more about on Wednesday so be sure to come back.


If you've hopped along with Stampin' Addicts before, you know that I LOVE banners.  I make a new one every Halloween (and this year, I've made 2 already).  I was actually going to show you the other one I made, but then I got the idea to use the tags from the Ghoulish Googlies Kit as the background for the letters on a completely different banner.  And I love how they layered with these die cuts from the Framelits Labels Collection.

I easily could have made a card using the cute tags from the kit too.  But I made this card for a Holiday Mini Swap a few weeks back and decided to feature it instead.  I just love that witch image. The Designer Series Paper on here is from the Howlstooth and Scaringbone pack also in the Holiday Mini. 


This Halloween Frame was so fun to put together and pretty quick with some circle punches and die cuts.  I love the bright fun colors in the Polka Dot Parade Designer Series Paper Pack; four of the six are perfect for Halloween.  And of course, the Ghouls make an appearance here with their googly eyes. Love those things!  Come back on Friday to learn more about this project and how to get a kit to make your very own.

I hope you've enjoyed this look at the Ghoulish Googlies Bundle and that I've convinced you that you have to have it too. Don't forget to come back on Wednesday and Friday to learn more about each project.  Next stop on the hop is Heidi's RunningwScissorsStamper Blog and a look at Perfectly Preserved.  She always has fabulous projects share.
