Too Cute to Spook! September Linky Challenge and Blog Hop!

Hello, Friends!

September has arrived, and with it comes cool sunny days, crisp, juicy apples, brightly colored leaves, kids going back to school...all things we love about fall!  And then there's everyone's favorite fall festival: Halloween! Crafty Secrets is ushering in the holiday with a Too Cute to Spook Halloween Linky Challenge and Blog Hop where everyone who plays along receives a free digital image/paper and one lucky participant will be randomly selected to win a $25 shopping spree for any digital products found in the Crafty Secrets online store!  Like our New Digital Halloween 4 Page Scraps on Special for $2.75!

Our design team has been busy brewing up some Too Cute to Spook Halloween projects for our Blog Hop.  This hop is loaded Halloween treats (no tricks!), fantastic tutorials and handy tips.  I have a sneak peek of each project to share with you and the link to each designer's blog where you can get all the ghoulish details.

When you are done hopping, dig deep into your own Crafty Secrets stash and create your own Too Cute to Spook project, then link it up at the bottom of this post.  You will have until midnight PT on Sunday, September 20th to add your project.  The design team will be stopping by to pay you a little visit, so have some treats handy!

Now, on with the Blog Hop!


Kathy Clement, Design Team Leader shows you how to build a spook-tacular Halloween flip album.

Teresa Horner's darling pocket card will have you under its spell!


If you plan to play along with us this month, we have some fun treats for you to download. 
(These images are for personal use ONLY.  They may not be sold or distributed in any other way.  They are intended only for those who participate in this month's Linky Challenge but it's not mandatory that participants use them. ) Both have been reduced in size as they are big files.

This month we have a super cute 'Pumpkin Swinger' and some Halloween Paper for Linky Participants!  This fun pumpkin and the paper are from  Halloween Jumbo Digital Download for a $14.00 special or if you prefer you can get the CD #4 Creating With Vintage Halloween for $15.50.  Both include the same designs with 44 great vintage printable Halloween designer papers and a combo of over 100 images and graphics with bingo cards, postcards, digi stamps like lace and die cut frames you can layer or print and use. Plus there are 12 fun templates with treat boxes, wine glass shades, games, party favors and a Dolly Dingle Paper Doll with Halloween outfits and accessories!

To download the pumpkin and paper, simply right click on the image, then save the image to your computer.  You can size these bigger or smaller to suit your taste.


You can check out all of our Halloween supplies here - with so many spooktacular designs to create Halloween decor, party favors, cards, tags and all sorts of altered projects! You can also find loads of tutorials, design team samples and inspiration on our Pinterest page. Here's a link to our NEW 4 Page Halloween Digital Scraps on an Introductory Special for $2.75 as the printed ones sold out. These are great as you can resize and print them on various mediums - over and over!


Now it's YOUR turn!  Link up your "Too Cute to Spook" project using Crafty Secrets.  Be sure to link back to the Crafty Secrets blog in your online post or photo gallery. You don't have to follow our theme this month to play along, but it's always fun if you do.  To win the shopping spree, you MUST use Crafty Secrets goodies in your project.  

Don't forget to link up before midnight PT on Sunday, September 20th.  The winner will be chosen on Monday, September 21st and announced here on the blog and on our Facebook page on Wednesday, September 23rd

I can't wait to see what you make!

On behalf of Sandy Redburn, I wish you joy and creativity!

Thank you for another linky! Now that my blog break is over I couldn't wait to use the image that Sandy gave me this summer - thank you, Sandy! I just completed your blog hop as well! Thank you to the DT for the awesome inspiration and tutorials! Thank you for the cute image and paper - I've got them printed off and hopefully I'll get something made so I can link up again!

thank you so much for the image and paper! I had already printed out some other images to make a card for one of my sons, so I hope it's okay to make a non-Halloween card for the challenge. but I am using the great paper you have provided. :)

love your DT and everything they create! :)
