Halloween bookmark

I created this bookmark to share with the first graders during their party this afternoon. I actually put the pieces in a cellophane bag as a kit, including a picture of the completed bookmark. That way if they don't have time to create it at the party, they can take it home and make it.


I have one more card for the holiday that I wanted to share and wish everyone a Happy Halloween with:


This one is created mostly with retired products, but I hope you can and will use it to inspire you. Use it as a map to create with what you have in your stash. The sentiment was actually just a scrap piece of cardstock that I stamped on, then realized it wasn't large enough to punch out, so I just punched the best I could, which gave me this unique shape. I thought it worked great for the card and season.

Have a really great day and thanks so much for stopping by!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN and be safe!

Little Girl Witch


I know it is getting close, but I had to create one more card for the holiday. Unfortunately, this card  is from retired items, but I couldn't resist sharing. A lot of my ideas come from something that I have to change the image because I don't have that particular stamp. So I hope that this will do that for you. Use it as a card map to create your own project.

The girl on the pumpkin is on dimensionals, then I cut out another girl and did the same with her on top of the original image.


This is what I did for the inside.

Hope this inspires you to create today. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day!!!

Halloween gifts


Here are the Halloween gifts that I created from the September My Paper Pumpkin kit. Inside I placed a smore kit, which included a graham cracker, snack size Hershey bar, and jack-o-lantern "peeps" (couldn't find the ghost ones). On the back of the tag, I placed the instructions to create the smore. Here is what I wrote:

Place a graham cracker on a napkin
Top with the chocolate and jack-o-lantern
The second cracker completes the stack
Microwave for 10-15 sec and enjoy your snack

These can be created by using muslin or cellophane bags. Build tags or bag toppers to complete the gifts.

Have a great day and thanks so much for stopping by!

Halloween party favor


Created these simple favors for a school Halloween party. The pencil is in a cello bag with a topper punched out with a Happy Halloween greeting. The cup is really simple using the Motley Monsters designer series paper, 2" circle punch, 1" circle punch, and piece of orange yarn. Inside I added a package of fruit treats and a bouncy ball.

Skull mini cup


I was told that I needed a skull mini cup to go with all of the ones I did for Halloween. So, here is my version. Hope it meets the requirements. :)

I didn't have any DSP with skulls on it, so created my own. I used the skull and raven/crow stamps that came in the September My Paper Pumpkin Kit (interested in this monthly option? Click on the My Paper Pumpkin button in the right hand column.) I cut out my template for the cup from Whisper White cardstock and randomly stamped the images in black. The large skull is one that I carved with my Undefined stamp carving kit, again using black ink to stamp on whisper white cardstock, then cutting out.

The band around the cup and lid are from Basic Black cardstock. I added the large skull to the front with dimensionals.

HINT: When using cardstock to decorate these cups, use your bone folder to break down the fibers a bit, by curling the cardstock lightly over the bone folder. This will help them to wrap around the cup easier.
