Ready to get spooky?

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’m sharing a little something old (not too old) and something new.  I must say that I am a bit of a Halloween nut! I don’t decorate as much as I used to but I still love crafting fun Halloween goodies and watching scary movies with all the lights out!! Not into gory … ghost stories are more my thing! lol

To pay homage to my ghosties, I have created this card …

A couple of weeks ago I shared my cute little Halloween boxes with you …  Look! A matching treat bag with my ghosties on it!! lol

Oh, and I have more … Just in case you’re feeling a little witchy or have gone a bit batty lately… here are a few more bewitching little treat bags! Oh my, I have to stop with the puns!

There’s nothing quite as cute as a spooky lil’ witch! Here’s more frightfully fun and perfectly adorable treat bags…

Take a close look … we’re using the cello bag for the first project, the Pizza Box for the second and last but not least is the Mini Gable boxes – spritzed with Gorgeous Grape!! I LOVE IT!!  (Put some rubbing alcohol in your spritzer with a few drops of ink refill to create the purple Gable box).

All of the projects you have seen here today were created with the products from the Toil and Trouble Suite on pages 48 and 49 of your Holiday Catalog.  The amazing Toil and Trouble designer paper coordinates with the Cauldron Bubble Framelits Dies (that is eerily awesome) and don’t forget those creepy little spiders you see crawling around, they are the perfect accent to the spider web die.  Ewe … they look almost real in this photo!!

Thank you for daring to drop in on this spooky trail of treats! I hope I have inspired you to create some Halloween fun of your own… make it a family affair. (Adams Family, Munster Family … OK, I’ll stop, besides I’m showing my age!!)

Have a Fun and Spooktacular day ~

No Toil … No Trouble … Just treats!!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

To the catalog went LIVE yesterday and of course I had to put another order in (you know, things I didn’t pick up on the pre-order) lol.  Truth is, is buy in stages … my Halloween and Fall first, with a touch of Christmas. Yesterday, a few more Christmas items for my upcoming Holiday Stamping Retreat. (Which is Sold Out) Thank you ladies!!

Today however, I’m focusing on Halloween … before you know it, those little ghouls and goblins will be ringing our doorbells in celebration of the holiday.  I like to make special little treats for my grandkids and this year decided not to recreate the wheel but copy the cute projects in the catalog!!

My Bakers Boxes should be arriving tomorrow! I’m going to create the cute little green box with the spider webs.  So easy to color … just fill your Stampin’ Spritzer with alcohol, then add a few drops of the ink refill. The alcohol allows your ink to dry much quicker than if you would use water.

The tag is quick -n- easy to make with the Toil & Trouble Designer Series paper! There are so many cute patterns, I don’t know which one I like best (but that little ghost does pull at my heart strings).

Here is my little ghost card …

And since we are having fun with the Designer paper, what do you think about the “bat” pattern?  I took this paper and sponged on some fun color effects and this is what I ended up with …

You can get full details … just CLICK HERE.  And while I’m bragging about this amazing designer paper, lets talk about how it coordinates so nicely with the Cauldron Bubble stamp set and Cauldron dies.  Some of the dies actually cut images from the Toil & Trouble designer paper!!

There’s my little ghost again! He just seems to keep turning up throughout this entire blog post! This entire product suite will make your card and gift making as easy as a ghost floating through air.  A totally versatile product suite… so stop back tomorrow because I have another cute project for you to “gift” your little ghouls and goblins!

Thank you so much for sharing a part of your Friday with me! I’ve listed the products used for the projects I shared today. Click on any item for more details or to begin your shopping.  Don’t forget I’m tracking your Virtual Rewards Points … I will be sending out more on Monday!!

Have a wonderful weekend ~

It was created with the “Bakers Box” Thinlets and Whisper White cardstock. The pretty snowflake was stamped in Pool Party and comes from the “Holly Jolly Greetings” stamp set. The “Merry” is created from the “Christmas Greetings” Thinlits Dies which “BUNDLE” with the stamp set. LOVE the Bundles!!

To finish off this cute little box … a Snowflake Element, Silver Stampin’ Glitter, and rhinestones were used to create that just right wintery look!

I thank you for stopping by and I’ll be back tomorrow with a bit more news from our On Stage event and another great project!
