Little Monster Patties

Hi Stampers & TGIF!!!  This week flew by!  Spent most of the week getting "caught up", re-organizing, stamping here and there.  I wanted to share a picture of the little Halloween party favors I worked on Saturday Night.  I am making these for my Son to take to his class mates!

Little Monster Patties
Lot's of Little Monsters! Are these not the cutest??

I got this idea from a Swap at Convention! (Traci DeGolier) LOVE THEM! Of course there is a Peppermint Candy sandwiched between the Scalloped Head.

My son did to and wanted me to make them for his classmates.  So yes lot's of work BUT what's a Mom to do? Make them of course! LOL!

Little Monster Patties 1Here is a close up!  I just love the one-eyed Monsters don't you?

I used Stampin' Up! Punches for them. Scallop Circle Punch, 1/2 & 3/4 " circle punches and the Word Window Punch. I will show you the finished packaging when I am done with them.

Simply Adorned Halloween

Simply Adorned Halloween Ok, just had to share this last item with you today before I take my son out trick or treating! I bought the Simply Adorned Charm and Necklace (pg. 189) a little ago, and I know I finally had gotten around to decorating it! I just have to say….what the heck took me so long! LOL!  Lot's of things but we'll skip that!

So I pulled out my Charm which I used the  1 x 1 1/4 size and the chain I bought was the 24" size. This is what I came up with!  Used the DSP from Stampin' Up! called  Wicked Fun, and well you don't need much! To fun! Would love to know what you think! Will be working on my Thanksgiving ones! Love how you can change them up! Any questions please let me know.

Happy Halloween

Halloween Basket Good  Morning all!

So here is another share that I promised with 1 more coming later in the afternoon. I will give you more information on this box later as I'll be making a video on how to do it. TO fun! 

I wish you could see the sides but I didn't get a photo of it and I no longer have the box.

My son saw it and asked if he could give it to his teacher for Halloween and so it was her gift. Of course it was filled with Candies! 

No worries, I am working on another box and will have TONS to share a little later! All supllies – Stampin' Up!

Pumpkin Treat Holder

Got Treats Favor Hello again! So here again I wanted to share this SUPER Cute and may I day SUPER EASY Treat holder. Perfect for ANY thing you might be celebrating!  I got this idea from Patty Bennetts Blog! TONS of great stuff there too! Everything used is Stampin' Up! Surprised? ; )

Accessories: Dimensionals, Scallop Punch, 1 3/8 & 1 1/4 circle Punch and Black 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, Big Shot & Two Tags Die

10 1/2 x 11/12 – 2 pces – Score 3 sides at 2 1/4  -  Handle: If you use paper you can cut a strip of 1 x 11 1/2 (1 or 2 depends on what you like)

Medium Bag measurements are as follows:
8 1/2 x 10 – 2 pces  – Score 3 sides at 2 inches -  Handle: for the photo I used Black Grograin Ribbon with Jumbo eyelets.

Small Bag Measurements are as follows and Tutorial for these measurements below:
