Mummy Bag

This little guy, or should I say gal is a sweet little addition to my striped Halloween bag, especially with her jeweled eyes and orange bow. I used my Sizzix, Bag w/Scallops to create the bag.  Because the side pieces on the die are separate from the front and back piece I was able to use two different types of paper. I've always thought with so many pieces it made the box more cumbersome to assemble, when all along I should've thought it gave me more options. "If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change."- Wayne Dyer 😊

Trick Or Treat Baker's Box

Why did Stampin' Up! have to retire the Baker's Box Thinlits? It's adorable, easy to assemble and holds plenty of goodies. 😋 I just love the bright colors on this box, don't you?! I especially like the little bit of sparkle on the tag.

Trick Or Treat Card

Everything on this card was suppose to be used on other Halloween projects, but for one reason or another didn't work out. Lucky for me, they all came together to create this great little card! Love when that happens!

Spider Bag

As festive as this little bag looks, it kinda creeps me out! The spiders are spooky on the bag, but that's as far as I prefer to be spooked by spiders.  How about you? 🕷

Boo Treat Tube

This turned out cute and was fun to make. I used a 1 1/2" x 4 1/2" piece of polka dot paper and scored it at 1/2", 1 1/2", 3" and 4".  I used my 3/4" circle punch to create two holes for my treat tube to slide through.  I used letter dies to create "BOO", but you could use stickers. It definitely needed the black and orange twine and ribbon to make it pop. I think these could be made for Christmas by substituting the colors and changing the word to "JOY". 

Bloody Good Halloween

This bloody good treat couldn't be any easier.  I created a fold over top for the cello bag. The blood drip was created with my Martha Stewart, Drippy Goo Edge Punch and red paper, then a small "Happy Halloween" stamped image to bring it all together. 

Witch Gable Boxes

I've heard about fun witch parties women have for Halloween.  I hope to have on or be invited to one someday.  In the meantime, I created these sweet witch boxes that would be great for one of those parties or to fill with treats for friends, neighbors or co-workers.  You can find them in my Etsy shop.

Halloween Crate

Isn't this mini crate bright and cheerful?  All you need is a gable box and a paper straw.  You simply cut the front and back handle pieces off the gable box, leaving the two sides.  I punched a small hole in each side for my straw to slip through.  Each gable box style is a little different, so you may not need to punch the holes.  Don't you think this crate can be designed for any holiday?

Eeeek Treat

More Frights & Delights!  Here's the second alternate project I made with my September 2018 Paper Pumpkin.  I had leftover Yummie Mummies Chocolates from my previous post (Coffin Treats) so I placed a few in one of the spider web cello bags, then sealed it closed with tape.  I punched a hole in each end of a tag topper, wrapped it around the cello bag and tied it closed.  The eeek and bat fit nicely on top.  I added rhinestone eyes to the bat for a little sparkle.

Coffin Treats

I only get to use my coffin die during Halloween season, so I always plan on creating a little something.  When I stumbled on these Yummie Mummies Chocolates at Dollar Tree I knew they'd be perfect for my coffin die and they were! The die creates a coffin box, but I altered it to create a treat pouch. Spooky cute, right?!

Truly Thankful Gift Bag

I used several papers and a couple different sizes of leaves to create a sweet fall bunch, then attached it to an embossed bag and bag topper. The sentiment on the tag is from the September 2015 Paper Pumpkin, Wickedly Sweet Treat stamp set.  I sell the embossed bags and bag toppers in my Etsy shop.  You can find the link in my menu. These would make the sweetest party favors for a Fall or Thanksgiving table. 

A Cup Of Kindness

We all need to take a little time to relax and be kind to ourselves, because our souls need both. This little card was created as a reminder.  It's made from the Stampin' Up!, Heard From The Heart stamp set and Cups & Kettle Framelits. 

Treats For You

The Frights & Delights Paper Pumpkin Kit is so much fun! I can't believe all the treat bags it contains.  Because there were so many, I chose to cut the sealed edge on one of them, fill the center with candy corns then tie up each end with the fun twine the kit included.  I placed the candy bag on top of one of the bag toppers after stamping a spider and treats for you on it.  I have another alternate idea I'll be sharing soon, so keep in touch.  ðŸ˜Š

Blog Projects For Sale

I recently moved my craft room to another area in my home and discovered I’ve kept far too many of the projects you’ve seen on my blog. ðŸĪŠ So, I put together several boxes with many of these projects in each.  I’m selling each box for $20, including shipping! Here’s a peek at some of the items I’ve included. Check back regularly, new boxes will be added often, I create more projects than I gift or “need” to keep. 😊
You'll find all the boxes with photos of the contents in my menu under “FOR SALE”.  (Project contents not included - i.e. candy, shredded paper, etc.)

Blue Pumpkin Pouch

Is anyone else seeing and liking the blue pumpkins? The colors are definitely not traditional, but I like it, lots!  I decided I had to have a blue pumpkin (even if it's only paper.) So, I die cut one and attached it to this little pouch.  The pouch is made from a 4 1/2 X 6 1/2 piece of white cardstock. On the long side, score at 1, 1 1/2, 2, 4, 4 1/2, 5. Turn paper to the short side and score at 3/4. Cut the 6 small score lines just up to the 3/4 score line. Remove all the 3/4" cut pieces except the 2" center piece. This will be the flap to seal it closed. Now you're ready to add a blue pumpkin to your project too. 😊

Hello There Card

I made my Fall card with the Stampin' Up!, Hello There stamps and Seasonal Layers Thinlits.  Given the fact I love all things Fall, it only stands to reason I'd love this card.  ðŸ˜Š

Halloween Peekaboo Box

Remember the Stampin' Up!, Peekaboo Frames Bigz Die?  Look how it transformed my simple little box into a sophisticated Halloween treat.  So dang cute!


My spooky little ghost looks like he's sliming his way out of the jar.  I used vellum and my Tim Holtz, Drip Edge Thinlits to design this slimy effect.

Thanks Box

I cut apart a couple sheets of my scrapbook paper to create this sweet box.  I'm trying to use other products I have besides stamps.  If you're like me, you have as much scrapbook paper as you do stamps.  Ok, ok...maybe more! 😆

Halloween Cracker Boxes

You know how I feel about making Halloween projects.  Love, love, love it!  Here are the cracker boxes I've been patiently waiting to show you.  I can't believe how much I'm enjoying my little cracker box die and these cracker boxes!

Lots To Love About Fall

I used the Stampin' Up!, Lots To Love Box Framelits to create this fun Fall box.  You only need to cut it once then score it at 2 1/8" and 2 3/4", make a couple of snips and it folds into this sweet little box.  The leaves are from the Stampin' Up!, Seasonal Layers Thinlits and the stamp is from the Stampin' Up!,  For All Things stamp set.  The box is the perfect size for three Ghirardelli chocolate squares. Yum! 😋

Black and White Hello Card

My favorite color combination is black and white.  It's simple, clean and crisp, just like this card. 

Lip Balm Cracker Box

Turns out my little cracker box die creates the perfect size box for a lip balm. 😊  After creating the box, I cut the scallops off one end, folded it and glued it closed.  A little gold curly ribbon and "kisses" stamp pulled it all together. 💋
