Now don't let the name fool you, this hop is for TODAY ONLY, not a full week!
Our blog hop is sponsored by Jaded Blossom and SVG Cutting Files, so sit back, relax and enjoy the wonderful creations the teams have made using some of the most beloved Cereal Icons of all time!
And now for my project!
I decided to do THREE projects because I could not really separate the Icons I choose..the MONSTER cereals, Count Chocula, Frankenberry and Booberry!!
So.. growing up in the 70's...this was the breakfast of Champions , lol.
My Sister LOVED Count Chocula. I preferred Frankenberry..... and well, I felt bad not to include BooBerry. There are 2 more Monsters in this series actually, the Mummy and the Werewolf -but I dont ever recall having them growing up, so they got the axe!
Here is a close up of Count Chocula
I love how he came out...and I just love dark ink on dark papers to give it texture. It may be hard to see in my photos though.
The Count is on a Jaded Blossom Purse Holder filled with Whoppers. I added a sentiment from Sprinkled with Love on a Mini tag Die. Perfect for that Chocolate Lover in your life.
I had the gold wired ribbon and the brown organza ribbon in my stash and it just worked perfectly with the overall feel of the earth tones I used for him. I wrapped the handle of the Purse Container with Kraft Twine.
So next is MY Favorite, Frankenberry!
I did a Monochromatic color scheme with this just as I did Count Chocula..this all in PINKS...which , by the way, is one of my LEAST favorite colors....so it was a BIG stretch for me to use all this pink..but I have soo much of it in my stash!
Frankenberry is on the Double Tube Holder from SVG Cutting Files.
The Tubes from Jaded BLossom are filled with 2 different colors of PINK gumballs. I tied the top off with some PINK tulle. I see in my picture my washi tape was coming off the side, lol --- oops!
I stamped a sentiment and the strawberry from Feeling Fruity and placed it on a Candy Wrapper Die. I just love using those as flag bases. Oh and I used the flag die too!
Last but not least is Booberry, that I made into a card
I have never tried this cereal before... as a kid I probably would not have liked it..but as an adult I probably would!
Boo is on an Action Wobble...so watch out!
I placed him on the Classic Label Card Base, and added an extra mat.
I found the yellow polka dot gross grain in my stash and it matched his hat so perfectly! Added some random blue sequins and some triple twisted twine to the card. I stamped a sentiment from Too Cute to Spook and put it on a Mini Tag Die.
