Happy Halloween

Well, Halloween is finally just around the corner. I am proud to say I finished Ashton's Halloween treats early, all 25 of them. I bought Halloween Popcorn from Sam's Club, made a card front that I attached with sticky strip. Ashton's idea was to add the suckers right on the front, which turned out very cute. She is starting to take after her mama. (very proud) I thought for sure I would be burning the midnight oil tonight working on these....so tonight I will have time to put away my Halloween stamps and focus on Christmas.
Now is my time to start working on Christmas cards and gifts, which will be fast approaching. Yeah!!
Hope everyone has a fun, safe Halloween!!!

Count Down Is On....

Well, it is just a couple days until Halloween. Everyone in my house is soooo excited. It is all we can talk about. I have been slowly getting a goodies ready for Ashton's class, I'm sure I'll be up around the clock tonight to make sure it all gets done. A week ago I got the honor of paper crafting with a dear friend, Kim. We made these cute french fry holders and attempted to make a witches shoe, which didn't turn out as well as the pattern??? We'll for sure get it perfected for next year!! I thought I would show off the cute Halloween french fry holder, you can make these for any holiday or event. Enjoy!

Just In: 12 x 12 Individual Paper is Back Spring 2008

Great news for all of you scrapbookers out there....the 12x12 individual paper is coming back. I'm so excited for this!!! As an added bonus I was reading about Novembers Stampin' Up Special.....Pick A Pack of Pretty Papers. Buy three designer paper packs and get one free ($9.95 Value). This is a great deal for all you paper lovers out there. Right now Stampin' Up has some awesome papers!!! I can't wait to get my hands on more!!!

I had a wonderful time with my stamp gals last night, I missed everyone. Although driving home in the fog, not so fun! I want to give a shout out to Lucille for being on top of things, she had the Paper promotion down better then I did. So, you go girl!!! Missy and I was wrong! (we thought buy 2 get the 3rd free...wrong) Anyway, still a great deal...since our papers hardly ever go on sale. Also I want to say Congratulations to Melissa "Missy" Toyne for joining the Stampin' Up family in Lisbon. She is a very talented person, who I so look up to.....I'm still waiting for her to come help me decorate my house!!! A scraped old window would be awesome, hint.

Have a great day...I'm off to make 200 more suckers for Halloween that is fast approaching.

I Love Halloween!

Can you believe it, I had time to stamp tonight?! I never thought the piles of boxes would end! We are still not completely unpacked, but are getting closer each day. Today I finally got my craft room unpacked....I always knew I had a lot of stamps, but today putting them away I was a little embarrassed. My craft room has a huge walk in closet, which I filled!!! I'll be taking pictures of my room as soon as I get my camera back from Sony...the shutter button fell off a couple days before our move. I think the good lord didn't want me to take pictures to remember all the boxes and the sad fact we took a semi load and a half to get here. Again another embarrassing moment......Here are the two Halloween cards I created tonight for Ashton's teacher, Mrs. Lacher. I'm doing a goodie basket for her for Halloween, Ashton's all excited about the idea. Mrs. Lacher asked me today to help with their big Halloween party and parade they do at the school. I sure hope my camera is back in time...sounds like fun! Enjoy!!

Treat Bags & More Treat Bags

The last few days all I have been doing is working on is Ashton's treat bags. Some for school, her last day was today. I made the "school" treat bags to match her Pirate Party theme. Then I made a few different one's for her birthday party tomorrow. The treasure chests will be painted...chocolate gold coin inside. The kids will go on a treasure hunt for the bags of bubble gum coins and fashion jewelry. Then before everyone leaves they will get another goodie bag full of; bubbles, tattoos, stickers, candy, pirate girl necklace and my annual "theme" magnet. Every party we throw we pass out matching theme magnets for the kids to take home. I started dating them so I can keep track.

Supplies used: Ahoy, Matey Stamp Set, Large Tag Punch, Real Red, Basic Black, Whisper White, Going Gray, Pixi Pink Markers and Card stock. (Non SU Ribbon and Magnet Roll)

Planning for Halloween!

As the nerves of moving have kicked in, I'm busy getting the kids working on Halloween treats to pass out at our new house. I don't want to just pass out candy, why not "WOW" the neighbors with something special. I'm sure the neighbor kids will destroy them without much thought, but at least my kids today had fun making them. I thought they turned out pretty cute. I used my new Batty For You stamp set (which I'm in love with), scallop punch, 1 1/4 and 1 3/4 circle punches. The colors I used were very simple...black and orange, can't get much easier then that. Enjoy!
