Halloween Treats... Round 2!!

Hi Crafty Friends!

Well, I finally finished all 30 of my daughter's school class treats.  She helped design them, and picked the face and the sentiment.  She was so excited with them.  I was too...  Hooray for Halloween!!

We used the awesome Peachy Keen Stamps EveryDay Character Face Assortment item number PK-490 for the cute ghostie,
and the KinderStampO Vintage Halloween stamp set for the sentiment.

Thank you so much for visiting! Happy Halloween!!

My Creative Time Design Team Call Entry

Hi Friends!

Yep... You read that right!!  The awesome Emma at My Creative Time is having a Design Team call!  I was beyond excited when I read her post and my mind starting going in all directions.  Her stamps are amazing and although I only have one set, I still wanted to apply! 

The set I have is called Race For a Cure. The words on it are so meaningful, and can be used in so many facets of life. In August of 2010, my Mom was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig's Disease, also known as ALS.  She was given two years to live, and when I saw this stamp set, I knew I had to have it.  The sentiment "Today Matters" has never been more true in my life.  My entry for the Design Team Call is a treat bag I made for my Mom.  She is such a fighter, and I have learned so much about respecting each day we're given and making it matter.   Thanks Mom, for showing me that no matter what life throws our way, we can make the best of it. 

For the box, I used Tags, Bags, Boxes & More.
      The paper was from DCWV "The Dots, Stripes & Plaids" stack

The scallop on the bottom of the box was cut from the Close to My Heart Art Philosophy Cartridge.
       The paper was from Lasting Impressions the color is "Weathered Black" (My fave!)
        The tag shadow is also on "Weathered Black"

The Tag was cut from Tags, Bags, Boxes & More using Lasting Impressions color "Sweet Tomato - Solid".  The flower is also from TBBM, using "Sweet Tomato - Solid".

I used the My Creative Time's Race For a Cure set for the tag, and the tissue paper.  I used the sentiments "Courage", "Faith", "Believe", and "Today Matters" for the tissue. 

Other supplies were brads, ribbon and rhinestones. 

Thank you so much for visiting today.  I sincerely appreciate it!!

Throwback Thursday - Card Cartridge

Hello Crafty Friends!

The Throwback Thursday challenge at My Creative Time was to use an older cartridge that had a "card" feature and your card needed to be made with the Halloween theme in mind.  I was super excited about this one.  I used Doodlecharms, but after I got my card done, I realized the "card" on the cartridge is actually more of a long and skinny one, rather than a folding one.  But, I loved how my project ended up anyway and decided to enter it... after all, the giveaway is seriously awesome!  Be sure to check out all the beautiful entries at My Creative Time!

Thank you so much for visiting today!!

Halloween Treats... Round One!

Hello Crafty Friends!

I can't believe it... I have Halloween treats for my daughter's dance class already to go!  I never have anything done weeks in advance... I think I should celebrate! 

Anyway.  She wanted a ghost on a tag of some sort and told me as long as it had purple, I could do what I wanted.  Wow.  She's usually so adamant about what she wants...  She loved what I did and can't wait to take them to school!

I used my brand new KinderStampo "Vintage Halloween" set for the sentiment and that sweet face is from Peachy Keen Stamps Princess Face Assortment... my favorite! 

Thank you so much for visiting today... Stay tuned for Round 2 of my Halloween Treats!
