Spider Cupcake

I used my retired cupcake sizzlits to make this Halloween cupcake. You can use the Cupcake Cutouts Framelits just as easily. Any Halloween paper will turn it into a spooky cupcake.

Spooky Candy Corn Jar

The Stampin' Up! mini tassels are so much fun! I attached one to this little treat holder I made with the Jar Of Haunts stamp set, which is just as much fun as the mini tassels. :)

Paper Pumpkin Broomstick

I used one of the tubes from the September Paper Pumpkin to create a witch broomstick. Fringe scissors made it easy to create the bottom of the broom and the cork allowed it to stand on its own. Now I have a unique little Halloween treat.

Spooky Gable Box

My tree and bat are part of an Echo Park Paper die set called, Haunted Mansion Die Set.  I found them at the, Lets Create Expo, I attended this past April. Due to my obsession with Halloween I "needed" them. :) I created the pumpkin with my Stampin' Up! pansy punch.

Hello Fall Pumpkin Bag

Fall is my favorite season, so I thought I might welcome it, and what better way than with a pumpkin. :) The ovals framelits are perfect for making pumpkins! I attached a paper sack to the back. I think a fall flower would be nice inside.

Celebrate Fall

Love, love, love the September Paper Pumpkin! My mind is racing with all the fun things I can make. I started with a Fall idea, but I'm excited for the Halloween projects. I can't believe how many tubes came in the kit! :)

Spooky Mummy Treat

Don't you think the Jar Of Haunts stamp set is the cutest?! I certainly do.  This mummy is my favorite!  You don't need to color or embellish it and because it's so darn cute it doesn't take much to create something cute with it! :)

Pumpkin Bows

Look at these adorable pumpkins you can make with the Bow Builder punch and Gift Bow Bigz (on the Stampin' Up! clearance  rack now). The small one has a Hershey's kiss inside. Wouldn't a decorative bowl of the small ones be the cutest?!  I haven't filled the big one yet. Hmmm...now I'm thinking I should use them as decor instead of treat holders. :)

Skeleton Bones

I saw this skeleton project on Pinterest last year but didn't have time to make one. I could hardly wait to try it this year. It's so darn cute it makes me smile. ;)

Dropping In To Say Hi

I used two pockets from the Gratitude For Days Simply Created Kit and the Acorny Thank You stamp set to create this project. A treat can be tucked nicely inside this easy Fall project.

Witch Hat Cello Bag

Don't you just love the witch hat clip? They were all the rage last Halloween. I hope they're still a hit this year because I can't get enough of them. I created this one to top and close one of the new Stampin' Up! 3x6 gusseted cello bags.

Sunflower Purse

Sunflowers are great because they transition nicely from the summer garden into the fall garden. With summer coming to an end and fall on its way, this little purse will transition too. I made it with the flower folds and petite purse dies.

40th Treat Box

Nothing like a little black treat to say happy 40th. I'm still having a great time with these clear boxes! They're  super cute with just a bow on top.

Dracula Popcorn Box

Here's Frankenstein's friend...Dracula. I used so many punches and pieces to create this little monster. :)  Personally, Frankenstein was easier and I think he's cuter. :)

School Days Apple

I thought I might create a little something in honor of those who went back to school. I started with a heart from the Hearts Framelits and trimmed a little off the bottom. The stem and leaf turned it into an apple. It's all attached to a box I created with the Petite Purse Die. The pencil is a stamp from the Project Life, Seasonal Snapshot 2015.

Wish Big Cake Slice

I was determined I didn't need the Cutie Pie Thinlits because I have something similar. Wouldn't you know, it's become one of my favorites! Just look how cute and simple a birthday gift can be made! :) Now remember...I'm determined I don't need the Home Sweet Home Thinlits either, hehe.  ;)

Frankenstein Popcorn Box

 Halloween?! I tried to hold out but I can't do it anymore! :) When I was making all those other projects with my popcorn box die I made this Frankenstein. I just love him! He has a friend I'll be showing soon, so stay tuned. Yay for Halloween, my favorite! :)

Pillow Box Purse

I haven't made a purse in a while and thought the Square Pillow Box Thinlits would make a great start. I used the Oval Collection Framelits for the flap and a stamp from the Ready To Pop stamp set to make a tag.

Bag In A Box

I haven't made a bag in a box in such a long time, I forgot how easy and stylish they can be. The stamp I used is from the Ready To Pop stamp set but the designer paper retired long ago. However, the gold binder clip is a new embellishment and a must have!

Gold Popcorn Box

I can't get enough of this popcorn box! :) I punched circles out of gold tape (found at Target) and adhered them to the box. It took a little time to punch and attach all the circles but the end result was well worth it. A couple of gold foiled chocolates, gold tag and gold tulle turned it into a glamorous little treat. :)

Halloween House

Stampin' Up! has a new thinlit set called, Home Sweet Home. I'm trying to convince myself I don't need it, so I used my popcorn box die to create this little house to prove to myself I can make something similar with the dies I already have. So far my plan is working, but as soon as I see a fun idea I can't duplicate with what I have..... no promises! ;)

Wish Big Box

I have a great Sizzix die called Box W/Flap. I purchased it because it reminded me of a crayon box. :) For this project I didn't use it as crayon box, I used it as a birthday box. Although, it's back to school time so it would've been perfect for crayons. :)

Happy Hello Envelope Bag

I've been cleaning and organizing my stamp room and have found so many fun things I forgot I had! :) When I stumbled across the Happy Hello Simply Sent Kit I decided to create something with it, so I made this fun gift bag out of one of the envelopes.  I love how it turned out and the look of yellow and gray together.

Tea-riffic Butterfly Cup

Here's a simple tea gift. I used the word window punch to create a small notch from the butterfly so it can rest easily on the side of the cup.  I clipped a tag to my tea bag that I created with the Nice Cuppa stamp set and Cups & Kettles Framelits, which sadly both are retired. :(

Birthday Baker's Box

I'm happy the Baker's Box thinlits stayed in the new Stampin' Up! catalog. It's a good size box, easy to assemble and fun to decorate. I stamped this box with the Endless Birthday Wishes stamp set.
