Red Carpet Studio ABC Ransom Blog Hop

If your looking for the Happy Owl-A-Ween Blog Hop click HERE!

Welcome to the ABC Ransom Blog Hop, 
hosted by Red Carpet Studio!

If you've come from Red Carpet Studio Challenge Blog's blog, you're in the right place. 

The Red Carpet Studio designers thought it would be fun to host a mystery blog hop while showcasing projects that can be made using all those leftover letters in your stash - hence where the "ransom" comes in. Ransom notes play a huge role in mystery/suspense films, and are often created out of random letters cut from magazines, newspapers, etc. in order to disguise handwriting. 


While we won't be doing any kidnapping or holding anybody ransom today - we do have some creative projects to share with you!

For my project using leftover letters in my stash, I created...
I made this "Boo" Banner" out of left over coasters. I also had the chipboard letters left over from other misc. projects. The ghost are from Happy Hauntings cartridge. At the top in the center of the bow I used My Craft Spot Stampin Around Fall & Tiny Doilies Dies.
The paper is Carta Bella All Hallow's Eve. I just love the colors in this stack. The tombstones are from Spellbinders Nestabilites Nested Tombstones. I punched holes in each of the corners and added some ribbon to attach them to each other.
I put spider web on each of the coasters to give it more of a spooky look. At the bottom I punched out a web border of out black cardstock. I stamped the skeleton before I put down the tombstone so he looks like he's peeking out to scare you!!
 


 
We're also holding some blog candy ransom! However, the blog candy is hidden, and only certain stops of the hop are hiding it. The only way you can win is if you comment on those blogs! Now, we're not going to tell you whose blogs those are (that would be too easy) but we will tell you what the prizes are!

  8. Love the door hanging. Soo cute(I mean scary lol) the spider web is a great added touch too! On your post I think it left off part of your wording about the skeleton. It's supposed to be peeking isn't it? It left off the "king" part lol.
