It's here, it's HERE!

The BIG reveal!

It's finally time for the, WPLUS9 design studio, October {3 sets!} 2010 unveiling! Are you ready!?!





Not ONLY was I inspired by the Damask Frames shape {that reminded me of a spider!!!!}, but I used the spooky mojo to get ALL kinds of fun materials OUT, inky and in the game! TAKE, for example, that spider-web embossing folder!!! I used it more like a faux letterpress - CHECK out my friend, LeAnne's post on the subject. {What a COOL look! Totally had to borrow that great technique!!!} So, yeah - Spider Web's maiden voyage was a fun one!



To REALLY get close to the edge....{!} I ripped open some brand new, Stampin' Up! "In Color!" Where I found a spookilicious combo in Pear Pizazz, Peach Parfait and Concord Crush... purrrr, purrrrr, MEOW! Just the right palette for THIS lil' guy ~ {dontcha' think?} ~





When I saw Dawn's first day of samples {*swoon!*} I kept seeing the Damask Design as a spider! That's when I got the idea for this cutie... AND SINCE I'M SUCH A FAN OF THE "Google Eye"... {hee hee} ANY excuse to glue some of those puppies down! Anywhooo, I love how this lil' spidey turned out!

Now, for my next trick...

{I, uh, don't actually have one - YET!} But I'm certain that my friends from the W9 team will! Please, please, click on over and enjoy their show{s}! {You'll REALLY be glad you did!}



This was, no doubt, a hauntingly fun REVEAL! Check out all three sets in their entirety, HERE!!! And then see how Dawn spun our final samples into her own web of GRAPHIC DESIGNER magic! {I love her graphic work ALMOST as much as I love her paper craft!} It's a goooooood time!

Speaking of GOOD... gooooooood bye, for now! {*wink!*} I'm THRILLED to have had you stop by!
