Get your HOP on!




One of my favorite things about being a part of the Want2Scrap™ design team is our
wonderful and joyous associations with OTHER fabulous companies. We are SO
thrilled to be sharing with you, yet another, fantastic blog-hop!



No matter HOW you slice it - these two creative companies compliment
one another, flawlessly! I got SWEPT away with super materials
and THIS fun project was created to REALLY run with the fun!




Here are the juicy hopping details:

The E-Team is excited to share in a fun blog hop with the Want2Scrap Design Team. If you are new to eclectic Paperie or Want2Scrap™, here is a little information about these two creative companies. Each offer unique lines of products for all paper crafters.

Since eclectic Paperie is soooooo, well, ECLECTIC - this hop is JUST what the
Dr. prescribed for lil' me. Mmmmm, hmmmmm - they HAVE an unbelievable
store - I hope you'll check it out. Meanwhile, I let the horses RUN!




Creating a banner is SUCH a fun way to let A LOT of materials, PLAY!



Funny how, in the right light, old fiber becomes... SPIDERY!




A little, well placed bling, lights up EVERYTHING!




Techniques - SOAR! I stamped this great Tim Holtz skeleton in Craft WHITE,
embossed with white on WHITE Claudine Helmuth sticky back canvas, and then
rubbed with black ink. Oddly, skelly turned PURPLE, but I loved this effect!
What gesture in that pose - I love THIS stamp! Check out his magic wand,
compliments of Maya Road Treasures... A TREASURE indeed!




Throughout this banner, I dumped a lot of old product, as well as new and FAVORITE!
Love this combo of flocked Cat sticker, with this pumpkin I made from MORE Claudine
Helmuth canvas, and a smattering of Eco Green acrylic paint. I let myself be influenced
by some vintage Halloween art and made the lil' shocked face - LOVE these two characters
playing off one another. A speckle of baby bling from Want2Scrap™ gives that cat all
the sass he needs to make this pumpkin MOST sincere! What a spooky pumpkin patch!




Oh, dear. Don't be frightened. There is still FAR too much fun to be had! Off
to play and visit all of the other lovelies, hopping down the trail!
Hope to see YOU there! Have fun!

OKay, I don't want to play favorites or hurt anyone's feelings, but..... so far this is definitely my favorite sample for this Blog Hop. This banner is so awesome, I love it!!! I love all the texture, detail and just everything on it. But by far the best idea is the spiders you made from that black fiber, that's absolutely ingenius! I love the tree and the moon and I also love the scalloped circle the 31 is on. Wow is all I have to say, great job. Thank you so much for sharing and inspiring.
