Welcome to the Haunted House Blog Hop & Pink By Design Team Day!

Hi Everybody!
Welcome to the Haunted House Blog Hop!  It's also my day to post for Pink by Design.  To view my tutorial on how I made this project, you can see it HERE.  

Beware! This is a blog hop of haunted houses where Halloween fright is glowing in the windows as ghosts and witches fly through the air...  Please join us and hop along starting with Jearise (http://lorbysworld.blogspot.com) our hostess. She has provided some Halloween blog candy for all those that leave comments along the way. The drawing will be on October 6th using Random.org. The winner will receive: K & Company Ghostly Greetings 12 x 12 paper pack, Stickles distress glitter glue pack, and EK Sticko's haunted house sticker pack.

If you have traveled from Sherry Brown, then you are on the right road. If you got lost and found yourself on my doorstep by mistake, you can head to the beginning of the road here: Jearise's blog (http://lorbysworld.blogspot.com).

I am so excited to start making Halloween projects! I'm also anxious for the cold weather to get here! So here is my waiting-for-cold-weather project:
*Cake Basics cartridge
*Pink By Design sets = Cute Halloween, Ghostly Greetings, Bubble Wrap background, Canvas Background
*Square 1 wall graphic material
(works just like vinyl, but better because it's repositionable and tougher!)

*I stamped with the Canvas Background stamp onto the top layer of this cut.
*Then I just layed it onto the base layer (which was stamped with the Bubble Wrap background).
*The cake cartridges are awsome for these kinds of projects since they are only two layers.

*I decided to add this friendly ghost from the Cute Halloween set.
* I layered him under the haunted house so he looks like he's coming out from the house.

*Also from the Cute Halloween set, I used this sentiment.
*I stamped directly onto the Square 1 wall graphic material, and then just cut around it with my scissors.

Taaaa daaaaa! I love how this came together. And the best part is you can just peel the designs off, stick the mug in the dishwasher, and after it's dry, just stick the designs right back on! Hope you enjoyed my project, and make sure you head on over to see your next stop on the hop:

Here is the lineup in case you get lost, or need to stop along the way:


  1. Great idea. I can see doing this for each of the holidays since you said you can peel them off and put them on again. Just need to make a cute box to keep them all in.

  2. Jenny, that is so cool! And to be able to remove and then replace..what a great and creative idea!


  3. First, let me apologize again for having you down twice under two titles. I feel horrible for the mix up. I will never do it again. I promise. Second, I love your project. I thought it was a vase until the end and once I saw the mug, I thought what a great idea! So cute, so practical. I love the ghost and will probably get the set of stamps now once I get back to Tucson. Thank you so much for being part of this hop my first time out as hostess. I really appreciate it. Jearise in Lorby's World.
