Monster Mash Blog Hop

Welcome to the 3 Girl Jam and Jaded Blossom Monster Mash Blog Hop.
3 Girl Jam
I'm monstrously happy to be hopping with you today.  If you are hopping over from Abby, then you are in the right place.  If you just stopped by my blog today, you really should click here and start at the beginning with 3 Girl Jam.  You won't want to miss any of the stops.  There are some great prizes, but you have to go through the whole hop.  So let's get started.

Now before you start any project, you need to have supplies, so I have some fabulous ones to share with you.  Click on any of the names below to purchase any of these monstrously fun products:

From the Harvest Bundle I used "Harvest Orange"
From the Spooky Bundle I used "Goblin Green" and
From the Celebrations Bundle I used Tuxedo
The stamp set I used was Monster Mash from Jaded Blossom.

To start with, I altered a clipboard for my 13 year old son.  Of course if I'm giving a gift, I need a gift bag and card, right?  I will post a link in a little bit to a video tutorial on the clipboard and gift bag.  However, the little card can only be found here.  Keep scrolling down and I'll let you know what I did.


Additional supplies needed: clipboard, Tim Holtz Retro Grunge Paper pack, Googly eyes, Mod Podge, Prismacolor Verithin colored pencils, Gamsol and blending stumps, Paper Trey Ink Stamper's Select white cardstock, Ranger Archival black ink


Additional supplies used on the bag: Glossy Accents, Red Zig pen


To make the little card, I measured a rectangle from the Retro Grunge paperstash.  It measured 2 1/2" X 3 1/2".  I then cut a piece of black cardstock measuring 3 3/4" X 5 1/2" and scored it to form a little card.  I tied a piece of the Harvest Orange 3GJ crinkle ribbon with a simple knot around the rectangle and adhered it to the front of my card base.  I found a matching green scrap piece of paper and stamped my sentiment from the JB Monster Mash stamp set.  I then trimmed it out and cut a simple pennant, adhering with a piece of foam tape.  The inside of the card was finished off with another piece of paper from the Retro Grunge stack at  2 1/2" X 3 1/2".  The finishing touch was a Googly eye.  Here's the video on the clipboard and the gift bag.


So now that you've seen my projects, hop on over to Crystal .  If you get lost somewhere along the way, here's the complete lineup:
