Hi Stampers!

It's Wednesday which means it is my day to post a project for The Cutting Cafe! This week Regina gave us the challenge of using one of her spider files to use on a project. We could choose between the Spider Treat Box, the Spiderweb Shaped Card Set, and the Spiders and Their Webs Printable Stamp Set.

I actually used the last two of these on my project!

I have mentioned a few times that one of my FAVORITE projects is to do scrap recipes pages so that is what I did for my project today. This is a 6" x 6" recipe page for a drink called Spider Cider. I was hoping that my cute Stampin Up! Spider Cider stamp would arrive in time to use on my project...and it luckily arrived on Monday :) What I did for my page was create a pocket to place the recipe inside.  I actually cut my paper at 10" x 6" and scored at 4" to fold the flap up to create the pocket.

Here is the page with the recipe placed inside. The large spider is from the Spiderweb Shaped Card Set. I used some extra thick mulberry paper to create the furry spider and sponged the edges to create definition. I tried to add some extra ink around the mouth area for a two toned look. My spider's eyes are a free printable from The Beary Scrap store. The trim pieces on the front of my page are a couple of the borders from the Spiders and Their Webs Printable Stamp Set.

When you pull on the Spider Cider Label, out comes my spooky Coffee Cup Shaped Card that is also available at The Cutting Cafe! The Sentiment on the front of my cup is from the My Favorite Things Die-Namics Web and Matching Stamp Set.

Here is another look at the cup:

When you open the Coffee Cup ... you will see the recipe for making your own Spider Cider!

Here is a closer look at my BIG... FAT... HAIRY... SPIDER!! EEEEEEEK!!!

All of my awesome Designer Paper is from the Authentique - Enchanted Paper Pack... I am LOVING this paper! Going to need some more to hoard ... LOL!

I hope you enjoyed my project today and you will go get some of Regina's adorable spider files! They are super cute and perfect to add to your projects this time of year! Be sure to visit The Cutting Cafe's Inspirational Blog Post and see how the other Design Team Members used their spiders! While you are there leave a comment on the post and you could win your choice of THREE of Regina's awesome files!

Check out my earlier post today too... I was asked to be the Whimsy Stamps Guest Designer for their challenge this week and you can see the project I created for that!

Have a great day all and thanks for stopping by!
