Damask Divas - October Blog Hop Featuring Laughing Lola Paper Pack

Hi & Welcome to my spot in the Damask Diva's Blog Hop....If you came from Jessica's Blog, you are in the right place.  If you have jumped here and just discovered our blog hop, feel free to check the list at Damask Divas blog to find the complete list of blog hop participants

I decided to do 3 projects this month : a box, a card & a 12x12 layout... I hope they will inspire you!

My lil Halloween treat box :
 I got these boxes at The Dollar Tree  - White Wedding Favor Boxes, 12-ct. Packs - $1 (you can order them online but you got to buy a case for $36 (that's 432 boxes these are great for gatherings etc))

So I ran some Laughing Lola paper through my Fiskers paper crimper..
I also used it on my card... I love this tool!!!
Here are my results:

* Front *

* Back *

My Thank You card:

I just got the #M1029 - A True Thank You acrylix stamp from CTMH and wanted to try it out.... And I loved how the crimper worked on my Halloween box, so I used Laughing Lola gold for my base and crimped it,

Then I used different colors of our exclusive inks and stamped in a light pattern before I stamped the final Thank you in black.

To finish it off I sponged around the edges with the Gypsy Ink

My last project a 12x12 layout - Something Magical

I cut around part of the paper to make interesting borders on the page, then I added a strip of black and a strip of gold and added some SPARKLES!!

I got my crimper out again, and crimped gold and black paper, and added a leather magical embellishment I got from Hobby Lobby... :)

Laughing Lola is my favorite paper pack... I just love all the colors and style of these papers...
