Peachy Keen MEGA blog hop!

The hop is now closed.
The winners can be viewed HERE.
Thanks so much for being a part of this amazing hop!


Hya everyone!
Are you ready for our MEGA hop?

  Both current and alumni design teams have come together for one HUGE Halloween/Fall Blog Hop and you are ALL invited to join us as we share some fabulous creations, fun and PRIZES!
I really hope you can join us!!
If you came here via the very talented Heidi you are going in the right direction.

There are FIVE prizes up for grabs chosen at random.
(The blogs holding the prizes are hidden amongst the DTs,
so to be in with a chance of winning, you need to visit every blog).
There is...
1 $50 Gift Certificate and 4 $25 Gift Certificates,
Winners will be announced at noon on Saturday BST, (6am CST).

The idea is to create a project with the Fall and /or Halloween theme.
Using our more 'vintage' oldies but goody stamps.
To me, they have really stood the test of time and are a pleasure to ink up as much today, as they were when they were released.

I made two projects using two different older sets...

 (I CASED THIS card by Amy R for my first project).

I used the set PK- 629 'Carved Pumpkin, Bat and Happy Halloween'.
This set is SO versatile! Definitely one of my favourite Halloween sets.
The fence is made from a VERY old Sizzix fence die. you know the ones, they were made for the old red, weighs a ton, metal Sizzix machines. It works just as well in my Big Shot thankfully, 'coz I like it.
The papers are all Echo Park.

My second project is also a card...theoretically!
I made this using THIS tutorial by the one and only, Kim Score.

It worked wonderfully. Everything folded flat, as it should and I was dead pleased with it...'till i decided to get clever and add the fence where I did! DUH!
It LOOKS good, but when I fold everything flat, the flippin' fence sticks out the bottom! Arghh!
So now my 'card' has become a 'scene decoration'! Ha Ha!

This  is the *cough* 'card'....

 Front view
Stamps
PK-636 (The tree and sentiment) and PK-131 (The little ghost)
The tombstones and the holes in the ground, are from the Cottage Cutz die Frankly.
 and the Cat is the Cottage Cutz die Nikkity Knack cat. (Both designed by Kathy).
The fence is a Martha Stewart punch.

Here's a top view so you can see the little ghost appearing out of the black hole
and the dimensions of the pieces.


Your next stop is the amazingly talented Melissa!

Here is a list of all the blogs taking part, just in case you jumped in and are a little bit lost.
