The Grim Creeper Returns…Again!

Happy Halloween, everybody! I won’t be getting any little ghouls or goblins ready for trick or treating tonight, but I wanted to share some fun (and delightfully creepy) cards with you!

This is the fourth time we’ve done a Grim Creeper event. If you want to check out the other hops we’ve done, click HERE.

I have two cards today. Both were made with free retro photos that I found online. I just picked a couple for my cards, and paired each photo with a creepy sentiment. I love that they pay tribute to shows like “Alfred Hitchcock Presents” and “The Twilight Zone”.

Here’s card #1:

  


Here’s card #2:


And here’s a closer look at the creepy twist:


I changed the word on the seed packets from “Beets” to “Betty,” and added a face from another retro photo to the packet.

 My friend Sparkle also has a Grim Creeper card to share, so pop by her blog to check it out!

Thanks for stopping by!

Stalking Into Summer with the Grim Creeper!

Summer is almost here, and one of my favorite “guilty pleasure” TV shows returns tonight with all new episodes…”Pretty Little Liars.” Here’s a quick summary, in case you’re not familiar with the show.

The show is based on a group of four friends (Aria, Spencer, Emily and Hannah) who are friends with Allison, a not-so-nice and the most popular girl at Rosewood High School. During the friends’ sleepover party, Allison disappears. A year later, her body is found, but it’s unclear how she died. The four friends come together to attend Allison’s funeral, and begin receiving text messages from someone named “A”, who seems to know their deepest, darkest secrets. 


Because it’s one of the shows my crafting besties and I watch and chat about, we came up with ideas for “stalker sentiments” on one of our very, very late night crafty chats. 
The idea behind these cards is to subtly surprise and creep you out, not to offend. We all understand how important it is to be aware of your surroundings and if there is actual trouble, please get help from someone.

We had our first “Grim Creeper” hop on Halloween, and our second hop on Valentine’s Day. This time, we wanted to share some more cards with you as summer begins with another blog hop!
I have three cards to share with you! They all feature some free retro photos I found online and each has a “stalker sentiment” from our ever-growing list. I added the inside sentiment at the bottom of each card photo.


Side note: I chose this photo because I found it odd that the guy is chatting up the girl while holding up a switchblade.

Thanks for stopping by! I’d love to hear from you! I read all of the comments that y’all leave for me…and if you have any questions about my these or any of my cards, I’ll definitely answer them!

Valentine’s Day: The Grim Creeper Returns!

It’s Valentine’s Day, and whether it’s a holiday you love or loathe, we hope you’ll LOVE the cards we’ve created for you today!

In case you’re wondering what this is all about, some of my crafting besties and I came up with ideas for “stalker sentiments” on one of our very, very late night crafty chats. 


We had our first “Grim Creeper” hop on Halloween, and the response was so great, we wanted to share some more with you on Valentine’s Day with another blog hop!

The idea behind these cards is to subtly surprise and creep you out.  I am sort of ashamed to admit, but these come easy to me…maybe I watch too many crime-related TV shows or scary movies, but some of the sentiments were pretty easy to come up with! 


So, I have two cards to share with you today! They both feature some free retro photos I found online and each has a “stalker sentiment” from our ever-growing list.



Your next stop on our “Grim Creeper” hop is Aileen’s blog! (You can find the full list of hop participants at the bottom of my post!)

Don’t worry, I’ll be back to my regular schedule tomorrow with a blog hop to celebrate The Greeting Farm‘s newest release…it’s simply to DIE for!

Thanks for stopping by! I’d love to hear from you! I read all of the comments that y’all leave for me…and if you have any questions about my these or any of my cards, I’ll definitely answer them!

Happy Halloween: Beware the Grim Creeper!

Happy Halloween, everybody! I won’t be getting any little ghouls or goblins ready for trick or treating tonight, but I wanted to share some fun (and delightfully creepy) cards with you today!

In case you’ve arrived from Peggy’s blog and are wondering what this is all about, some of my crafting besties and I came up with ideas for “stalker sentiments” on one of our very, very late night crafty skype chats, and thought the best time to share them with you would be on Halloween during a very informal blog hop!

I have three cards to share with you…the first two are pretty easy and quick…I found a collection of some free retro photos online, and picked a couple for my first two cards.

The idea behind these cards is to subtly surprise and creep you out. Maybe my group of friends watches too many crime-related TV shows or scary movies (I am so guilty of that!), but some of these were pretty easy to come up with! I’m not a fan of gory slasher movies, but I do love Hitchcock movies and the old Twilight Zone episodes, in addition to modern shows like CSI and Criminal Minds.

For a closer peek at any of the cards, just click on the pictures!

Heeeeeeere’s card #1:

For Card #3 (which is actually the first card I made), I found a tutorial online on how to make an interactive spinner wheel card. You’ll be able to get the basic idea on how it works from these pictures:
