Cookie Cutter Halloween Treat Box

Hello,

It's been a few days since I last posted and I'm sorry for that! But, it has been crazy the last 4 weeks and I need a few days to catch up, just relax on the couch and most of take time some time for me! Plus we had a fabulous weekend as a family with Emily as she was home for Thanksgiving weekend. We really enjoyed our time together and I'm sad that we have to take her back to school tonight. But I know I will see her in a few weeks!! Yippee..I'm counting down the days!!

My project today is one that we made in our Cookie Cutter Halloween Treat holder class. I CASE this idea from Angie Juda over at Chic n Scratch. This super cute Treat box holder was part of her 12 weeks of Halloween!! This is the perfect size for chocolate to give to a family member or friend!!

Mojo Monday 420

Hello,

I had a chance to play along with last week's Mojo Monday 420 sketch and you know me,  I love sketches as they are a mystery just waiting to be solved, all you need to do is fine the missing pieces!! And those missing pieces are stamps, ink, and paper!!

Last week's sketch was designed by Julee and I love all the possibilities that you can do with this sketch!! It could be a birthday tag, a thank you tag, a Christmas tag or a Halloween tag and the list goes on!!!

I decided to use the tag feature to create a fun Halloween Card for Emily. My Emily loves everything that relates to the human body, she loves studying bones ( how they move, and how they work), and plans to do a medical career in the future. ( which by the way is closer then we think, we are just starting to explore university and different programs now for next year, this mama bear is not ready for this next stage in life)

I knew I wanted to use the Skull and bones from the Howl-o-ween Stamp set as my focal point on my tag. I stamped the images in memento ink onto very vanilla card stock and die cut them out using the Boo to you framelits and the big shot machine.

IMG_3819

Of course I had to add a poison jar besides the skull. I stamped the Poison image from Sweet Haunting in memento ink onto a piece of very vanilla card stock. Using my tangelo twist ink and a blender pen, I coloured in my jar and then fussy cut it out, and then pop it onto my tag.

I really like this sketch and can't wait to create a few more projects with this it. Why don't you play along with us, I would love to see what you created!!

Howl-o-ween Gift Card

Happy Friday!

I hope you are having a great start to your weekend!! I had to admit that we have been so busy the last few weeks, that I have NOT stamped in a long time. I miss listening to music and stamping the afternoon away. I'm so looking forward to stamping this weekend and creating some "beauties" with my new goodies!!

As I was going through my pictures, I realized that I didn't show you this fun gift bag card that I made using the Howl-o-ween Treat stamp and the matching Boo to you framelits! I have to say "That this is my favourite Halloween bundle ever! I love the images and the best part is you can use those images for many different occasions!!"

Boo bag

And of course, I had to decorate the inside of my card....

I thought this might be fun to make for the girls, and include an Itune card and some chocolate for them. Now that the girls are older, they don't get dressed up anymore for Halloween and I have to say that I miss those days. But now they are there to help me hand out the candy or should I say " Eat the candy, LOL"

Hello,

It's Halloween and we can't wait. The pumpkins are craved, the candy is that the door and we are ready for the trick or treater's. I'm having mixed feeling this year as I'm excited for the day but I'm also sad as Emily has decided not to go out this year.Just another sign that she is growing up before our eyes.
