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!!!!!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

A SN@P December Daily

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
