HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!  I can't wait to see all my little ones in their costumes!  They are going to be sooooo cute!!!!  

I am not a big Halloween person, I would say I am more of a fall person.  I love the cute things about Halloween, but not the scary part.  I am a real whimp when it comes to scary stuff.  

When I saw this plaque at Michael's I knew right away what I wanted to do with it.  I was so excited when I got home that I started working on it right away.  I have had it done for quite a while, but wanted to save it for today.  

I have used several different products on this project.  They are:

Stamp Sets:

Acorny Thank You, Cookie Cutter Halloween, Sheltering Tree and Vintage Leaves


Flourish Thinlits, Large Letters Framelits, Layering Oval Framelits, Leaflets Framelits


Acorn Builder and Cookie Cutter Builder 


Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry, Early Espresso, Rich Razzleberry, Tangerine Tango, Wild Wasabi and Whisper White


Crushed Curry, Early Espresso,  Rich Razzleberry


Early Espresso, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron, Wild Wasabi

Here are some closeups of different sections.


I added Wink of Stella on the leaves.  Look how they sparkle!




I love it when Mark really likes something I make and this is one of the projects he loves.  I can't wait to hang this up in my home!

Tomorrow I will have a NEW PRODUCT  to share with you!!!  I am so excited about it!  I am placing an order very early tomorrow morning to get it.  I know you are going to love it too!

Have a fabulous Halloween!

Happy Stampin!

Can you believe this is the last Friday for my Fall Friday Series?!  I will be posting my final project on Halloween, Monday, October 31st.  I have throughly enjoyed doing this series.  I hope you have too.   

This weeks project is a bigger box than I usually make.  Every year I make up a little goodie box for my girls for Halloween.  This year, I kinda went a little crazy and needed a bigger box.  So, off to my craft room to create one.  It looks like a medium size milk carton, which it pretty darn cute if I say so myself. 

To make this project you will need the following products:

Halloween Night 12" x 12" Card Stock Pack #142023

  • cut the Basic Gray at 9 7/8" x 12"

Pumpkin Pie Card Stock #105117

  • scraps for the tags

Whisper White Card Stock #100730

  • scraps for the vampire and tags

Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper #142022

  • cut 4 at 2 5/8" x 3 7/8"

On the Basic Gray piece of paper you will need to do the following:

  • on the 9 7/8" score at 2 7/8" from each side
  • on the 12" score at 2 7/8", 5 3/4", 8 5/8", 11 1/2"
  • cut the bottom 1/2" x 2 7/8" section off
  • cut on the score lines from the bottom of the paper up to the first score line 
  • use a strong adhesive (such as Fast Fuse or Tear and Tape) on the 1/2" section
  • adhere the sides together
  • overlap the bottom pieces to for the bottom of the box
  • pinch the top together and clip with the Gold Binder Clips

You will then adhere the Designer Series Paper and decorate the box.  Below is a picture of how to cut and score the paper


The bottom is where you will cut up to the first score line.  This is the bottom of the box.  

This is a pretty easy box to make and you can make it for any occasion.  




Have a wonderful weekend.  I am getting excited to see all my angels in their costumes this weekend.  They have had a lot of energy the last few days.  They are getting so excited about Trick-or-Treating.  

Happy Stampin!

Fall Friday Week #8 - Mini Treat Bag

stampin up, Stampin' Up! Cookie Cutter Halloween #142255, Stampin' Up! Spooky Fun #142236, Stampin' Up! Mini Treat Bag Thinlits #137547, designed by Stampin Scrapper, please see more card and gift ideas at stampinscrapper.com

Fall Friday Week #8!!!  I am having so much fun making these projects to share with all of you!  I have a special one planned for you on Halloween.  

I used the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits to make the bag with the Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper, also known as DSP.  There are a lot of different designs in this pack of paper that absolutely perfect for Halloween, Fall and everyday cards/projects too!  

To make this card you will need the following products:

Halloween Night Speciality DSP #142022

  • cut at 6" x 12"
  • cut at 2" x 5" - this is for one of the banners

Pumpkin Pie Card Stock #105117

  • 2" x 5"

Whisper White Card Stock #100730

  • 2 1/4" x 6"

Below are pictures of how to put together the Mini Treat Bag. Sometimes it is easier to see something done, then to read it.  I am definitely a visual learner.  

This is what the two piece will look like once you fold the score marks.


You will put adhesive on the thin strip of paper on the right in the picture above.  You will adhere it to the bigger piece as seen below.


You will then adhere the two back strips together followed by the bottom section.  


You are now ready to decorate your treat bag!  I used the Cookie Cutter Halloween and Spooky Fun stamp sets and the Halloween Night Baker's Twine.

Here is the candy that I put inside the treat bag.



This weekend is going to be filled with fun times!  I have my Stamp Camp tonight, going to the pumpkin farm on Saturday morning and Disney on Ice in the afternoon.  Then on Sunday we have our small group, which I am excited to go to as we have missed the last two weeks.  It is such a fun time to get together with friends and learn more about our faith.  

I hope you have a great and blessed weekend!

Happy Stampin!

Fall Friday Week #7 - Shadow Box


Does this look familiar?  I made a shadow box in August for the first time.  I love them because you can make them any size you want and decorate them any way you would like.  This time I went with the Halloween theme. 

To see the one from August and see the directions on how to make it click Here.

For this shadow box above I used the Spooky Fun, Jar of Haunts and Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp sets and the Halloween Scenes Edgelits Dies.  What is really nice is you can get the Spooky Fun Stamp Set and the Halloween Scenes Edgelits Dies as a bundle and save 10%!!!  I love the bundles!

I used the Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper to make the shadow box and black card stock for the back ground.  If you notice my spider web and ghost are bright white so you can see them better.   To get them that way I first stamped them with the Craft Stampin' Ink in Whisper White.  Then I took a white gel pen (retired from SU) and went over the images.  That made them really stand out.  If you would like a more muted look, just skip that step.

Speaking of the White Craft Ink, I can not find where I read it, but Stampin' Up! was rated as having the best Craft White Ink!!! Yay!!! 

Have a fabulous weekend!

Happy Stampin!

Fall Friday Week #6 - Popcorn Box


Can you believe this is week #6 of my Fall Friday?!  Time is going so fast!  I am having so much fun creating different projects for you every week.  I have another series planned for when this when ends on Halloween.  I think you are going to like it!  

This is my first time using the Popcorn Box Framelits and I love it!!!! Why did I wait so long to use it?  You will be surprised how  easy this was to put together.  

You are going to need to cut out two of the framelits to make this box.  I used the Tear and Tape to put it together as you are going to want to use a strong adhesive whenever you make a box.  I wanted to decorate it but wasn't sure how I was going to do it as the top is wider than on the bottom.  Then the light bulb went off!  

First, stamp a piece of crumb cake card stock using Soft Suede ink and the Hardwood stamp set.  Then flip over that piece of paper so the ink is face down.  Put the framelit that you used to cut out the box and trace the left side of the framelit.  Below is a picture to show you what I mean about the left hand side of the framelit.  You will need to cut out four of theses.  

IMG_6988 IMG_6990

I then used my trimmer to cut them out.  I lined up the lines with the cutting track so I could have a straight line.  I think my OCD kicked in on this.  You can also use scissors to cut out the pieces if you wish.  Here is a picture that I took to show you how I lined up the  paper to cut it.


I then used the stamp sets Vintage Leaves,Cookie Cutter Halloween and Teeny Tiny Wishes to decorate the front of the box.  Of course if you have a box you must have chocolate!!! Yummy!

Have a wonderful Friday and a great weekend!  

Happy Stampin!

Fall Friday Week #5 - Folded Paper Gift Pouch


When I saw these little pouches made by Deseree Krumm, another talented demonstrator, I immediately asked her if I could make them for my Fall Friday.  These are very easy to make and you can make them any size you would like.  

You are not going to believe what you need to make these!  You need one sheet of paper measuring 6" x 6" inches.  You are going to want to make sure that you are careful to get your cuts straight.  It is easier if you use Designer Series Paper than card stock since it is thinner and easier to fold.  

It is easier for me to show you pictures on how to fold it than trying to explain it.  So here we go!


You will start with a piece of paper measuring 6" x 6".  You will want to put the side that you want showing on the bottom.  


Take one corner and fold it over to the opposite corner and form a triangle.  You are going to want to make sure that your sides are as even as possible.  If they are not, this is where you are going to want to trim them.  


Take the lower right hand corner and bring it over to the left hand side of the triangle.  You want  to make sure that the top of the fold is parallel to the bottom fold.  


Do the other side the same way.  You are almost done, only one more fold.


Turn down the flap and you are finished!  Did you realized we did not use any adhesives?  Just one sheet of paper, a couple of folds and you have a little pouch!  You can then decorate them any way you want to.  I used the Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set from the Holiday Catalog.

Wouldn't these make great gifts to give your coworkers, your childs classmates, friends and family?  I will be making a bunch of these for friends and family members.  

Tomorrow I am having my first Scrap Along and I am so excited!  I have one more layout to create, so I better get stamping!  Have a wonderful Friday and weekend!

Happy Stampin!

Fall Friday Week #4 - Ghirardelli Box


In February I bought a small box with Ghirardelli chocolate in it and  I fell in love with the box.  The fact that it had chocolate in did not help in my decision to buy it.   LOL  When I started my series Fall Friday's I knew this was one of the projects I wanted to make.  So, here it is!

I took the box apart to see how they made it and came up with my version for it.  I love how it turned out and for sure will be making a lot more of them.  Wouldn't these be great for little treats for your coworkers, friends, family or anyone else you can think of.  Here is a close up of just the box so you can see it better. 


Look how adorable he is!!  I just love the Cookie Cutter Halloween stamp set!  Wait!  I think I have said that before.  I think you might hear that a lot from me over the next month or so.  

To make this box you are going to need the following materials:

Pumpkin Pie Card Stock #105117

  • cut at 6 1/4" x 8 "
  • score on the 8" side at 2 3/4", 3 3/4", 6 1/2" and 7 1/2"
  • score on the 6 1/4" side at 1" and 5 1/4"

Whisper White Card Stock #100730

  • scraps for the vampire and the sentiment

Halloween Night Specialty DSP #142022

  • 2 1/2" x 4"

You are going to be scoring your paper two more times, but I needed to explain it a little bit more.  I took pictures so you could see where you need to put your extra score marks and hopefully understand what I am trying to say better.   


This is what your paper will look like when you have all of your score marks done.  You will notice that there are 2 extra marks with "v" marks on the ends.  These are necessary to make the box fold on the sides correctly.  You are going to score down from the top of your paper to 3 inches.  Then you are going to measure up from the bottom 2 3/4 inches and make a mark on each of the two lines.  Here is another picture so you can see what I mean.


Once you have your two marks on each line you are then going to take your ruler and stylus and create a score line from the mark you made to the end of the 3 inch score line.


Now you have all your score lines done.  Next you are going to have to do some cutting.  We need to get rid of all of the sections we don't need to make the box.   Here is a picture so you can see where you need to cut. 


You can see on my template where I made a mistake in my measuring for where to put my marks.  Thank goodness for white out!  I also included on in this picture where you are going to want to put your tape.  I used Tear and Tape because I wanted to make sure it didn't come apart.  

You will now fold on all of your score lines and be careful when you are doing your diagonal lines.  I did those only with my hands, I did not use my bone folder.  You are going to want to use your bone folder on all your other score lines for a crisp fold.  When you are making a box you want your folds to be crisp and straight.

I then stamped my images on my scrap piece of white paper and used black ink for the vampire and Pumpkin Pie ink for the sentiment.  I used the coordinating punch, Cookie Cutter Builder Punch, to the Cookie Cutter Halloween set for the vampire and the Classic Label Punch for the sentiment.  The sentiment is from the Spooky Fun stamp set.  I just got this set and can't wait to play with it.  

I used the  Pumpkin Pie and Smoky Slate markers to color the vampire's shirt and vest.  The bow was made using the Halloween Night Baker's Twine.  I used both of the colors that you get when you order this twine.  

To hold the flap down in the back, I put a glue dot underneath the flap in the center.  

I have been wanting to start making videos and I am thinking this project would be a good one to start with.  Hopefully soon I will be able to start making videos.  I just have to learn how to do them.

I hope you are enjoying my Fall Friday series.  I am having a lot of fun creating different projects for you.  

Have a wonderful weekend and go create!  Please share your creations with me.  I love to see them!

Happy Stampin!

Fall Friday Week #3 - Sheltering Tree Card


As I look at this picture it looks like I was looking down at it.  Not sure what I did there.  Hmm.   Today for my Fall Friday I have for you a fall card we made in Stamp Camp this week using the Sheltering Tree Stamp Set.  

When I look at this card it makes me think of apple cider, bon fires, s'mores, sweatshirts, leaves turning colors and so much more.  I absolutely love this time of year!

You will notice on the bottom that we used sponges to make the grass with the Pear Pizzazz ink.  You can make it as light or as dark as you want, it just depends on how much ink and pressure you put on the sponge.  I kept mine a little bit lighter because I wanted the emphasis on the fallen leaves not the grass. 

I did my grass first than I stamped my tree trunk in Chocolate Chip followed by the leaves in Crushed Curry and Tangerine Tango.  You will want to off set the second time you stamp it so the colors are not right on top of each other.  The leaves on the ground were stamped with a little stamp that have the same shape as the leaves just a lot smaller stamp.  This stamp is also nice when you have bare spots in your tree to fill it in.  

The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the Better Together stamp set with the coordinating sentiment stamped on the inside of the card using the Chocolate Chip ink.  

You will need the following measurements:

Whisper White Thick Card Stock #140272

  • cut at 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" score at 4 1/4"

Early Espresso Card Stock #119686

  • cut at 4 1/8" x 5 3/8"

Tangerine Tango Card Stock #111349

  • cut at 4" x 5 1/4"

Whisper White Card Stock #100730

  • cut at 3 7/8" x 5 1/8"

Can you believe this is the last weekend of the summer.  Thursday will be the official first day of Fall!  Yay!!!!!  

Have a fabulous weekend!!   

Happy Stampin!

Fall Friday Week #2 - K Cup Holder


How cute are these little guys?!  I am not a big fan of the scary Halloween things, but I am a fan of the fun and cute things and that is why I love this stamp set, Cookie Cutter Halloween.  There are two other things I love too.  There is another stamp set, Cookie Cutter Christmas, and a coordinating punch!!  Now, that is exciting! 

One of my favorite things to drink is coffee.  Yes, I am addicted to coffee, I will admit to that.  Fun Halloween and coffee in one place how can you pass that up!  I have made this holder before (it was pre-blog) and wanted to make it again to show you how to make it for yourself.

You will need the following products:

Pumpkin Pie Card Stock #105117

You will need a full sheet of paper.  On the 8 1/2" side score at 2" and 6 1/2".  On the 11" side score at 4", 6 1/4", 8 1/4" and 10 1/2".  Below is a picture of how to cut it and where to put the adhesive.  

Halloween Night Specialty DSP #142022

  • cut at 1 3/4" x 4 1/4"
  • cut at 2" x 4 1/4"

Whisper White Card Stock #100730

  • cut at 2" x 6"
  • scrap for two 1 3/4" circles

I punched out two 1 3/4" circles from scrap paper and put a tiny bit of adhesive on the back of them.  I then put them on the section where I wanted the circles to be for the K cups.  I lined up my punch with the circles already there and punched.  The circles are now right where I wanted them.  

Put the smaller piece of DSP on the section that has the white paper with the measurements on it as in my picture below.  Then TURN YOUR PAPER OVER.   On the biggest section use the corner rounder (if you would like) and round the corners on the Pumpkin Pie and the 2" x 4 1/4" DSP paper.  At this time, before you put it together, you will want to punch out your handle.  I used the Classic Label Punch. 

Now you can put the box together, add your cute little Halloween guys and K cups. The little black bats were created using the  Sweet Home Framelits.  


These are great to make for a little gift for friends, family or coworkers.  Last year I made them for Emily and Erica and their roommates.  They were a big hit.  

Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Stampin!
