Spooky on Thursday...
Let the spooktacular creations continue... today we have a piece of art created by design team member Tracy Evans. You have seen her work with the skull before, and here is yet another Halloween decoration. I love how she layered the center skull to add dimension. Stop by her blog to get the full details on how she created the background and attached the beads (unless you are too scared!).

The skull's gone green - and dressed up!

Calendars for 2013 are now available!
So, I did not get around to making calendars for the 2012 stamping year, but I did do it for this year. They are blank on the top ready for you to stamp all over them. My aunt and I packaged the first batch up last night, and now they are on the website ready to go!

order 5 & the 6th is FREE!
What's that? There's a vampire on my neck? Here's a spooktacular necklace my sister stamped up for the spooky season. She used the Dracula stamp on a piece of red leather and turned it into a pendant adorned with beads. She's a crafty one - I'm lovin' this!
I vant you.

To start the week off in the Spooky mood, we have an ATC by design team member Gerri. She took the French Woman Coffered 1, and dressed her up. The masquerade mask and witch hat are from our good friends over at Retro Cafe Art. I look forward to sharing more spooky creations with you throughout the week. . .

Over the weekend I got an exciting shipment I can't wait to share. But first I have to get them all packaged up before they are ready to go! I also spent some time getting together a new set of grab bags, I will get those up on the site later this week. Until then... we have one more Shhh... grab bag, and one more Halloween grab bag left. And if you've created anything spooky with 100 Proof Press images, please share them with us on our Facebook page!

Welcome to the first-ever 100 Proof Press Blog Hop. That's right blog-hoppin' 100 Proof Press style. I've been waiting for this ever since we got the new website up and running, really running. And I'm so pleased with how the design team has shared their support, creativity, and enthusiasm for this blog hop.
Everyone wins inspiration from our talented team, but one lucky commenter will win a $30.00 gift certificate, as well as a package of postage paper, and some postage parts. What's postage paper you say? It's paper that's been designed to look like postage stamps, and postage parts are rubber stamp images created precisely for the size of each faux stamp on the postage paper. So hop, skip, and jump from blog to blog, but make sure you remember to leave a comment on each one in order to be entered into the contest. The winner will be announced right here on Monday September 17th.
This is the order you should follow (remember to visit and comment on each blog):
