Graphic 45 Trick-or-Treat Blog Hop - Day Five

In honor of the Halloween Rejuvenation Challenge the designers at Graphic 45 are going to "treat" you to a fun design team blog hop all this week!

Each day you'll see a sneak peek of a fantastic Graphic 45 trick-or-treat bag designed by the design team members. Make sure you hop along each day, September 26-30! Today you will visit:

Gloria Stengel  -  YOU ARE HERE!

Edited to add: I will draw ONE winner from my comments to win my card, shown below, and a small prize pack - to help you make your own bag! (Sorry the treat bag is the property of Graphic 45 and not up for grabs!) I will draw the winner on Monday, October 3. Leave a comment to win!

Here is my treat bag, which I originally created for Summer 2011 CHA. Each team member created a bag, and Graphic 45 had them all displayed in their booth at CHA. I am so happy that we get to show them to you this week as part of this FUN blog hop! I think you will be amazed at how creative the team was with simple, brown paper bags!
I went with a traditional black and purple scheme, my favorite Halloween colors!

I covered the bag with Magic of Oz paper, and then created a flap using the Spellbinders™ Grand Calibur and LF-161 Grand Labels die templates.


I covered the sides of the bag with images of the witch, in more yummy purple. This is Wicked! paper.


The tag is made using Spellbinders die template S4-318 Fleur De Lis Squares. I love how the edge has a Gothic look to it when cut from black cardstock.


The best part of the bag is my house...which fell on the witch! I covered a chipboard house with paper, then accented it with Imaginarium Designs chipboard, a Graphic45 metal tag and chipboard, and a bingo number. I witch must live at #31, right?! I fussy cut the witch feet out of the paper and stuck them under the house. Wicked funny!

I also created a matching card:


I love the Graphic 45 stamps! This witch is so fun to color. I sat one day and colored a bunch just to use on various projects!


I used some lace, flowers, and pins to keep the vintage look alive!

Remember, Graphic 45 is offering two awesome Magic of Oz gift packs as prizes this week! Want the opportunity to win? Just click on over to our featured design team members' blogs each day and leave a comment. We will choose two random winners from our design team members' blog comments and announce them on Friday, September 30th! Sound like fun!? You bet it does! Check out this amazing prize!
