Monday Montage #2

Welcome to our second Monday Montage Blog Hop!! We are really excited to be sharing some of our latest creations with you!! (And, to be HONEST, I've been "collecting" fun new goodies to play with all summer and I am just NOW getting around to using some of them!!) Summer was SUPER BUSY, but fun!! VERY happy to be getting back to "normal" ... whatever THAT means!  I'm not quite sure I will EVER know!

New favorite "toy" ... er, ummm ... I mean TOOL??? The Envelope Punch Board. OhMyGoodness!! This thing is freakin' AMAZING!! Not only can you make ENVELOPES in a TON of sizes (squares AND rectangles), but you can turn the "envelope" into an actual CARD (which is what I did with this little "Boo!" card!).

AND ... I used MDS in conjunction with my eCutter (yeah ... I still use my Cricut with the now-illegal-to-buy-software that was involved in a not-to-be-mentioned-lawsuit ... but I bought it BEFORE it disappeared from the market, so I am still usin' it!). The spiders and the "Boo!" are from MDS ... it is so much fun to be able to "size" things the way ya wanna!!

Here it is all opened up. Truthfully, I didn't do much to it on the inside because the back side of the DSP just so happened to look kinda COOL when I opened this up. So I just added a teeny-tiny panel for the "sender" to sign the inside! (that would be ME!) Pretty cool, eh?

Stamps: None!
Paper:  Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Pumpkin Pie, Witches' Brew DSP
Ink: Black Sharpie (to color rhinestones)
Accessories:  Envelope Punch Board, Label Bracket Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, Burlap Ribbon, Linen Thread, Large Rhinestone Basics, Rhinestone Basics, Crush Curry Chevron Ribbon, Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Paper Sanding Block, Cricut (or any eCutter will work!)
MDS:  Spooky Things (Spider), Spooky Bingo Bits (Boo!)

Great idea! I will have to copy your idea. And I had to laugh, because I have the same e-cutter and software.
