Boo Kitty!

I say this every year at this time, but I'm a Halloween fanatic!
I've always, always loved Halloween, but it seems that the older I get the
more that I love it.  The papercrafting industry comes up with the cutest 
Halloween themes year-after-year and that definitely keeps my interest ginning :)
The "Frankie & Friends" Collection by 
is a mix of fun colors, whimsical patterns and adorable characters...
look at Frankie...isn't he a doll?!?!?

For my project this month I really wanted to use the collection in a fun way, so
I headed to Pinterest for some ideas.  I had this cat's head treat holder pinned

And here is my take on it using patterned paper & embellishments from the
"Frankie & Friends" Collection:

There are sooo many fun ways that you can dress up the face....
cute & funny or very minimalistic with just eyes and a nose :)
And if you have an extra-special trick-or-treater (or two) on your list,
think of whipping up one of these and filling with all sorts of homemade/bought treats.

The cat that I've made uses an entire sheet of 12X12 (modified) paper, but 
you can make smaller versions and leave off the hanger.

See more photos and how I put it together on today's blog post at 

Happy weekend!


  1. This is soooo cute! Love the eyes! I love Halloween too but never have photos. Maybe this year Manon will send me some :)

  2. This cute Halloween critter has so much personality and so much to love!! Love the fun eyes, the curled whiskers. The whole thing just screams CUTENESS!!!!!

Love Authentique Papers and Unity Stamps? Then come on board as we hop and share projects that combine both of these beautiful companies into one! **You should be arriving here from my sweet friend, Thienly's Blog** 
Do you remember a few years back when the altered lunch tins were all the rage?  Well, I've had a couple in my keeps and ran across them the other day.  I thought one dressed up in Authentique Paper would be perfect for Christmas, so I chose the Festive Collection and coordinating stamps from Unity, Naughty or Nice (which is now on SALE!)
 In times past I have covered the top of the tin (when I actually had a pattern), but I  went with tons of colorful ribbons and stamped tags on the handle instead.
 After measuring the height of the body, I cut two strips of "Joyful" paper into 5x12".
Next, I cut two strips of "Glistening" paper int…
