...hubble bubble...and a free cut file

Good evening! I snatched a little me time this evening to scare up a wee tag and a card! For the tag above I made a little cut file for Winnie - and you can snag your free file here. Winnie was the first witch from our Halloween Party set and I know there must be folks out there who would love to have a cut file for this lady, especially fro those mass produced Halloween goodies! The file is available in .svg and .dxf formats and I have given options for both wide and thin border. The tag above shows Winnie cut out with a wide border. this gives ample room for my 'ready brek' glow sponging....Uk folks might just know what I'm talking about, always supposing your are long enough in the tooth...

Also used were the gothic background stamp from Text it, the Hocus Pocus sentiment from...Hocus! That's a May Arts green velvet ribbon and some random orange ric rac.

While I was on a roll, I took moments, literally moments and made up this little Halloween Party invite! I trimmed out a large label shape with our WMS Custom Dies - Opera these! I used black card with a subtle ribbed pattern, it came from Papermill. I just sponged the edges in white ink and added a sentiment (Halloween Party) in white ink also, have to say the PTI Fresh snow is the best white ink I have found.

I whipped up a little orange banner from a few scraps of orange ribbons and stuck it up top. Job done. Simple pimple to recreate enmasse....

How's your Halloween shaping up?
Hope they tickle!


  1. Oh I likie!!! The cut files for Winnie are a great idea - so much easier than using a blade!! And I really like the Halloween invite - the ghostly glow around the tag is fab!

    PS I remember the Ready Brek glow :)

  2. Thank you Thank you Thank you for the Winnie cut file. :) I am getting ready to do a bit of work with all of my WMS Halloween stamp sets... And now I have one less cut file to create. THANKS!

  3. Love the tag, thta Winnie the Witch image is so iconic! And that opera tag shape is so elegant, I like it spooked up too!

  4. Thank you so much for this post. I want to let you know that I posted a link to your blog in CBH Digital Scrapbooking Freebies (please, notice the new url for my blog), under the Page 2 post on Sep. 16, 2012. Thanks again.

  5. I love your invite! I especially like the way you used the frame stamp from the new opera set to create a ghostly 'head stone'. Kinda reminds me of the older, more elaborate ones you find in an old church graveyard - SPOOOOOKY!

  6. oh both of these projects are amazing! I do love that there is a cut file. if only i can get my old silhouette to cut! i'm dying to try these cut files!

    the opera tag still gives me shivers. I want... i need...!
