Welcome to my NEW BLOG!

For many years my projects could be found at my previous blog - www.fatcatcreations.blogspot.com. Since my business has evolved and is now known as Cindi McGee - Behind These Eyes™ instead of Cindi Bisson - Fat Cat Creations - I thought this was the perfect time to launch a new blog. Since I've been on this creative journey for over 16 years - I have a LOT of project links out there in cyberworld! If you are looking for a particular project you have found on Pinterest, Facebook, FaveCrafts, HomeTalk, Twitter, etc. and the link is not working for you, please feel free to email me at cdjb11@yahoo.com and I'll be sure to get you the new link to the instructions. Have a creative day and remember to DARE TO BE DIFFERENT!

Monster Mash with Rit Liquid Dye


You can find the instructions for the Halloween party favors I designed last year on the Rit Dye website.  This year I made something similar, but with a few twists.  Frankenstein's mouth is embroidered, and his neck bolts are made from straws painted silver.  I also used the same Sizzix Eileen Hull Scoreboards XL Die, and twine from The Twinery.  Thought I'd share those with you too!

Rit Liquid Dye is used to create custom-colored, textured cardstock for this Monster Mash invitation and treat cup.  A Sizzix Scoreboards vase die  is used to make a whimsical Frankenstein treat cup and for the face focal image on the invitation.  Ransom note style lettering cut from magazine spells out the key text.   A hand stitched mouth, silver drinking straw bolts, and fringed hair add to his monsterly appeal.
