Ghosts of Halloween Past and Present

Well happy FRIDAY! I hope you haven’t fallen over. It’s true, I’m posting more than once this week but I had to share these cute bags I made using the Gift Bag Punch Board. I decided to make some cute treat bags for some teachers at my daughter’s school. I used old and new supplies and I’m happy with the way everything came out!

Ghosts

These are super easy to make and fun! And I’m thinking they’ll like the Ferrero Rocher chocolates inside. 😉 Thanks for stopping by! Think ahead friends and make your own bags for Christmas! Shop with me for your supplies here!

Here is a great tutorial on how to make the gift bag topper!

Boo!

Happy October everyone!! We all know what this month brings. Perhaps some ghosts and goblins? Well that is what I’m bringing anyway! First, the fun sketch from Create with Connie and Mary!

Now this was fun, but boy did it take some serious thinking! After much deliberation this is what I came up with:

halloween

Told ya I’d bring you some ghosts! 😉 I used the new Happy Haunting DSP and the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. I used the basic metal buttons and stringed them along the white baker’s twine. I used a candy dot next to the sentiment to add weight and visual interest to the left.

And that just about wraps it up! Hope you get a chance to play along this week! Come on by to get some ideas from the other designer’s cards, you will not be disappointed! www.createwithconnieandmary.com

Happy Haunting on a Thursday

Happy Thursday all! It is sketch challenge time at Create with Connie and Mary! Looking at this sketch I thought easy peasy!

Yes… “Thought” being the keyword. My pride forbids me to tell you how long it took me to come up with my rendition of the sketch!

Happy

I cut some small strips of Basic Black card stock and curled them up. This card looks easy enough, right? Then, prey tell, how in the world did I struggle for “x” amount of time?! ha! I punched out my images from the Happy Haunting DSP and my sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.

This set has a stamp for just about any holiday or event you can think of… Besides National Dog Day; which I am embarrassed to say that I missed. How could I? My best friend in the world has four legs and we fight for the same pillow. So I’m a bit late in celebrating her but here she is in all of her splendid glory, Aspen, also known as my BFF Bubbies. ❤

Kind of got off track there! We will blame it on Teeny Tiny Wishes! 😉 Thanks for stopping by. Check out the other designer’s takes on the challenge this week and let’s see what you come up with! Play along with us at Create with Connie and Mary!

SPOOKY!

It’s sketch challenge time over at Create with Connie and Mary!

And ok… maybe my card is not so “spooky” per se but I’ll tell you what is. The amount of time I spent deciding whether I should leave the entire Spider Web Doily whole or trim it. It really was nerve rattling. I went back and forth destroying many a web along the way and I eventually went with an altered doily.

Spooky

I couldn’t quite get the three banners from the sketch in my take so I used three Basic Rhinestones. I also used the Happy Haunting Designer Washi Tape under the Happy Haunting DSP. If you can’t tell already, I LOVE the new holiday catalog! Let me know if you need a copy and I’ll get one to you!
