Halloween Birthday Blog Hop with Bella Crafts Quarterly


Bella Crafts Quarterly is one year old! They're celebrating with a Halloween-themed designer blog hop and a prize giveaway. Four fabulous manufacturers provide the designers with product to create something cool and creepy:

Since World Cardmaking Day was just last week, I created a couple Halloween greeting cards.

The Classic Squares dies by Spellbinders were perfect for creating window frames from black cardstock - the dies stay right where you want them with the magnetic mat. The Westcott trimmer sliced through the Rowlux sheets like buttah, and the non-stick surface of my Westcott scissors made it much easier to trim little strips from the double-sided Tacky Sheets. And when that shiny black Tulip Glitter hits those Tacky strips, it stays put beautifully.


I placed white cardstock behind the orange Rowlux in each die-cut window so it looks like it's glowing, when compare to how the Rowlux looks against the black cardstock. With some fun little resin stickers, black gems and creepy rubber spiders, my cards are frighteningly fabulous!

Check out the links below to see what the rest of the designers on the hop did with their supplies.

Happy Birthday, Bella!
