Trick or Treat???

Good Morning!

Welcome to Just Us Girls template challenge being hosted this week by the fabulous Maria!!  She has arranged to have Clear & Simple stamps be our sponsor for this weeks challenge!  We were given the "Spooky treats" stamp set to use on our projects this week and we also  had to choose one of their free templates (can be found here) to create our projects this week .  I hope you decide to play along with us this week.  You can use any template you like but there are some really nice free ones that can be found with the link above.  While there check out all the great ideas their design team has put together with some of their other stamps sets that are available!!

 I used Bias tape on the top and bottom of my template.  I thought it gave my mug a more sturdy and finished look.  I loved this gooey paper I found at Michael's from Creative Imaginations and that's what inspired me to use the mug template in the first place for this weeks challenge!

supplies: Clear & Simple stamps-Spooky Treats, Paper-creative imaginations, CM-tag punch,memento black and Tim Holtz burlap distress ink, Core-dinations blue and orange.

I hope you will come play along with us as we have some prizes to go along with this challenge donated by Clear & Simple Stamps. A randomly selected player of the template challenge will receive a $25 gift certificate to the Clear & Simple Stamps store. The chic of the week this week will receive their own "Spooky Treats" set!

Check out the rest of the design teams creations along with our  August guest designer Jo Westfoot for even more inspiration!  Sadly this is Jo's last week as August comes to a close!  Thanks Jo for putting out such fabulous creations this month!

How to play: You need to upload your project for this week's challenge to your online blog or public photo gallery. Leave a link that goes directly to your project in the Inlinkz form at the bottom of the JUGS post. If you upload to online galleries, please also use the keyword or tag, JUGS48. After you post to Inlinkz you can also leave a comment.

Deadline to be considered for the weekly "Chic of the Week" is 9:00 PM EST on Thursday, Sep 2cd. The Inlinkz form will close at that time. Our top pick "Chic of the Week" will be announced on the following Friday morning.
