More Halloween treat ideas

Hello, more treat holders and gift bag ideas. I made these mini treat bags without the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits, but you can be sure it's next on my list! Anyway, I used Halloween Night Specialty DSP, Spooky Fun stamp set and Halloween Scenes Edgelits, very simple to put together and perfect for small treats or maybe a gift card.

Of course, the Cookie Cutter  Builder Punch and the Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set are too cute not to use. With these bags I used the Gift Bag Punch Board. 

I added some die cuts and embellishments, great for party favors or even to give to your trick-or-treaters. So easy! Although, the other day I had to practice using the punch board because I kept forgetting how to use it. I ended up with a bunch of gift bags!

One more week left to save with Stampin' UP! Designer Series Paper. Click here to see and shop online.

Paper Pumpkin - September 2016

I'm a  little behind here on Paper Pumpkin shares, but I made these a few weeks ago. So adorable!
Something Good To Eat

They're plastic test tubes that you can fill with candy or any small items and then decorate and give to your family or friends. Here are a few alternate ideas with this month's kit:

I work at an elementary school and we usually make a service project  during this time of year for the "meals on wheels" program in our area. These are some bookmark/tags that I'm preparing for the children to put together. I'm keeping it real simple!

Happy crafting!

Fruit Stand Card Keeper Portofolio

Hello again. Here's a card gift set I made this weekend with the Fruit Stand DSP, Fresh Fruit and Layering Love stamp sets. I really love this idea when I saw it on online that I just had to make it! It really came together easily and as luck would have it I had all the products I needed to pull it off! This would make a beautiful gift to give to someone who would like a couple of handmade cards to give out. It was fun to put together since I love the colors.

Baby Cards and Cookie Cutter Christmas

Good evening, I have a quick post. We always need a baby card to send with a gift, but of course at the last minute we're buying it because I don't have any made. What kind of a card maker am I? I usually have Thank You and Happy Birthday cards ready to go. So I sat down this morning and made some cute cards with the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set, plus my daughter is going to a baby shower this weekend, so it was a perfect time. Now, I need to make some wedding cards .... (next!)
