Sugar Creek Hollow Fall Blog Hop

We are just a few weeks away to the official start of fall. To celebrate, we are kicking off the season today at Sugar Creek Hollow with some fantastic Fall Digis and a Brand New Design Team. Come take a look at who's is in the team. They have some great cards to show you using the latest digis. Then, make sure to visit the store to purchase any of these great digis. We even have some Vintage gift ideas you can purchase.

This is my first post for SCH. This week we are promoting Tracy's autum digi's trough a blog hop.
Take a look at what the other designers have created - I promise you a lot of great artwork!

I fell in love with the Spider web quilt set and made this explotionbox with it.
In the center I have 4 spider popping up when it opens.

Explotion boxes are fun to make. Here is a guide for it - it is in norwegian, but it is quite easy.
You need:
3 12"x12" papers for the box and 1 8"x8" for the lid.
On the 3 sheets for the box on the bottom paper don't do anything - the 2 paper cut of 1/4 inch on two sides and on the 3 paper cut of 1/5 inch on to sides.
Then just follow the pictures on this tutorial.

I have decorated all the sides of my box.
The outer page:

I have covered all my spiders in Diamond Glaze to give them a pretty shine. They do look good don't they *LOL*

The middle page:

Here I have used the Add-a-face-pumking. I had this cute stamp of a set of eyes so I gave the pumkin a face. I am not sure if it looks pretty or distubing - a pumking with eyes.... not really comfortable with it!

The center of the box of course got the most attention:
Some sculls surronded by flowers and some gold spiderweb (well that was what I was trying to make it look like).

Some blood running

Some more spiders of course

And some more disturbing black flowers and a scull

I think I used all my scull charms for this project! Thanks aunt Wenche for giving me such useful charms ,o)

The lid was decorated with a big shiny spider and lots of red and black beads.

And of course little more black roses, a scull and some golden spiderweb ;o)

I also made a gift tag to go with the box, makes a nice little gift set - right?

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you will take a tour and visit my DT sisters to see what they have made!
