Happy Halloween!!

Happy Halloween!

Today I have a long post as I'd like to update you with some fun Halloween projects I've been busy with.

First, I have a card using the Mr Funny Bones Stamp set from the Holiday Catalogue. I have had so much fun playing with this photopolymer set! You can make so many different skeletons in different poses with this set!

Mr Funny Bones is definitely a keeper! LOL




Check out the Hand Sanitizer boxes I made using this set. I used Erica Cerwin's tutorial for these fun boxes! Check it out on her blog http://pinkbuckaroodesigns.blogspot.ca


I made a bunch for my daughter, Amanda to take to all of her teachers and the admin staff at her school. Also I made a bunch for may sister, Barb to hand out at the Pharmacy as she was giving flu shots to her patients. Such a fun thing to do for Halloween and Flu season!



I also couldn't wait to use these fun Test Tubes that came in the September Paper Pumpkin kit. I made this quick and easy card to hold them in the spine.



Here's a look at the inside, a little treat for a book lover!


I also want to share with you my Scrapbook pages for my scrapbook club in October. I've used so many new Stamps, Dies, Designer series papers and embellishments on these pages and I had a blast creating them!






I also got busy on Pinterest as I found an idea for matching costumes for Amanda and I. We went as "Dead or Alive" half skeletons. This was so much fun to put together with cheap clothes from value Village and a bit of white felt and iron on adhesive from the fabric store.


Here's or "alive" side...


and our "Dead" side...


I made a shirt for my hubby, Kevin, but he skipped the make up part! LOL


Every year, he does a great job carving the pumpkins with Amanda. Check out this year's pumpkins...





October was a great month and I am ready to start November fresh tomorrow!! I have so many fun things planned to get ready for Christmas! Stay tuned!!







Googly Ghouls...



Today, I have a cute 3-D project to share. This was another one of my swap items that I recieved at Convention with no name.If it's yours let me know so I can give you credit. :)

It uses another one of my favorite dies called the Fancy Favor box. I love how she (I assume it was a lady) attached the small strip of DSP to the top of the bag and also how she embossed the whole thing using the spider web embossing folder.

Both the witch and the bat are embossed with black embossing powder to really make them pop. They are both images from the set called "Goggly Ghouls" in the new Holiday Catalogue. Don't you just love their googly eyes. So much fun! The sliver ribbon slide is also something new in the Holiday Catalogue.

The greeting is from Teeny Tiny wihses and the punches are the word window and modern label.

Love it!!




Hope your having a great day!!!!!






Halloween treats!!

Hi there!

Happy Tuesday!!

Have you seen the fun new cello bags that are in the Holiday mini Catalogue?? I love them! They are 1 inch wide and 8 inches long and they sell for just $3.25 for a package of 50. Take a look at these fun bags that I made for Halloween...


I filled these with Hershey cookies and cream candy, but there are tons of things you can put in these little bags.

Here's some more candy that I found that will fit...


So much Fun! You can also fill these bags with non-candy items too such as pencils and lip balm. Great party favors!

Hope your having a great day and I'll be back tomrorow with a technique. :)







Halloween Peek-A-Boo countdown!!

IMG_3995 Hello!

 When the holiday mini came out and it had a Big Shot Peek-a-boo die... I was SOOO excited!!

These little pop open windows are so much fun. You can use them for any occasion, Halloween, Christmas advent Calendars, birthdays.. the possiblilties are endlesss!!

For my kids, I decided to do a fun little 12 day countdown to Halloween. While the images are fun to look at through the openings, I know my kids would get a kick if I put a little treat behind them. :)

So I purchased a 12 space muffin tins to be my "treat holder". For the squares, I used Magnetic sheets and the Halloween designer series paper called Frightful sight. I cut the pieces 3 1/2 inches squre and attached the DSP to them and ran them through the Scallop Squares duo die for the Big shot. This machine cuts through the magentic sheets like butter!

Then I stamped various Halloween images on cardstock measuring  1/3/4 squre. These will be the images behind the Peek -A-Boo doors. Like this...

Next, I added  the numbers from the Alphabet die called "Timeless Type Junior Alphabet" to the outside.

Here's a look inside at some of the treats...


I don't plan on giving toys as treats for Halloween but you could do this as a Christmas countdown and include something like this...


I did find a small miffin tin with 24 spaces.. so I am excited to complete this project with the Chrsitmas advent stamp set !! By the way.... today's project was completed with the Big Shot...and it could be yours for FREE with the purchase of the starter kit!! Click here to find out more about this fabulous opportunity!!

What do you think? Would you like to do this as a class ? Let me know and if there's enough interest we can pick a date!

Thanks so much!!
