Artiste Blog Hop

Welcome to our September ARTISTE Blog Hop!  Each month we are showcasing the amazing, exclusive ARTISTE Cricut cartridge which can be only purchased through a Close to My Heart Independent Consultant.
We don't want to scare you but Halloween is a little over a month away and we know you have to be thinking about what YOU are going to create for this spooky holiday! We decided to show you all the creative projects you can make using our exclusive Artiste Cricut cartridge. You will be hopping along our haunted trail of creativity - you never know what you will see next!
 If you just happened to come to this blog, you should start at the beginning at Lucy's blog -
Also, to help you get ready to start making your own Halloween projects Lucy has some blog candy for you! She is giving away a Moonlight Complements Dimensional Elements pack!  That's two (2) sheets of Printed Dimensional Elements that you can use to create your own Halloween project! There is a picture of the blog candy on her blog. All you have to do to be eligible to win is to leave a comment on everyone's blog AND become a follower of Lucy's blog.  (If you are already a follower, just let her know in your comment.)
 My project is ... A cupcake box (page 39) made with Spellbound Workshop on the Go kit paper (G1040)

I used our new Black Tulle Ribbon (Z1798), Haunted Assortment (Z1741) and Black & Gray Assortment Sparkles (Z1754)... for the bow on the front.

For the web on top, I used page 76 on the Artiste Cartridge (Z1790)

The stamp set used is the Moonlight Workshop on the Go kit stamp (G1051)
