Happy Halloween!

A fun weekend ending today with cute little monsters from the neighbor trick or treating tonight.  I bought these white paperbags and just added the Tim Holtz sizzix Halloween cat with green eyes and a sentiment that says "Trick or Treat" from, I think, Stampendous.  They were obviously really easy and the kids loved them!  It was a great night for trick or treating, not to cold.

Yesterday, my sisters and a very good friend, Cindy got together to make the Papertrey Ink Petite Places on Mason jars.  They are so adorable and so small!  Check out picture below.  Thank you Andrea for hosting this fun Stamp Camp!

Witches Shoes for Halloween!

How cute are these Witches legs???!!!  Click here to see where I got this idea.  It was from my favorite site, Pinterest.  I made my own template for the soles of the shoes.   The top of the leg has some orange frilly binding that I had in my stash.  It is perfect for these shoes.  The spider is from Sizzix. The ribbon says "Boo" and this was also in my stash.  Love that I can use stuff I have had for a while and can use it up for other stuff!  The legs are paper towel rolls and it holds about 4 or 5 small candy bars and a lollypop!

Mr. Spider
At Halloween, I think this is the most used die that I have.  I have had it for 3 or 4 years and I always use it.  He is so adorable and with googly eyes it raises it to the next level.

A Pair!

Halloween Shaker Card

Loving using my new Stampin "Jar of Love" stamp and die set!  The Z fold card is so fun and easy to make. Googly eyes in the jar for the Witches Brew is perfect!  I haven't used the owl punch from SU in a while and it makes such an adorable witch, I had to use it.  Never know what you are going to find in a witches brew!

In the open position you can see the sentiment on the left side of the card.  A closer look at the kettle of witches brew to the right. This was made with Nestabiities circle, SU tab punch, and the brew is from Martha Stewart's border punch.  I had a lot of fun designing and making this card! Just love Halloween!

 The inside of the card is decorated with dies from Sizzix and the paper is from Simple Stories. The picture below shows the sentiment that I used for this card. It will be Halloween in just a few weeks and I have just a couple more cards to make.  Thanks for stopping by.

Another Pocket Letter Birthday

I am having so much fun making these pocket letters!  I get to use dies and embellishments that I haven't used in a while.  Last month, I made one for my daughter's birthday and this month it is for my son's birthday which is next week.  This one is all about him!  He loves sports, bike riding, sailing, traveling and camping.  Below are some close up pictures of the different pockets and the chunky charm I made.  There are two flap pockets on the right side of the pocket letter.  Well, I am headed off to do some errands and one of them is to put this in the mail.  Happy Birthday Eric! Love you!

Scrabble tiles for Eric's initials are a cool way to personalize this fun "card"!

What a cutie!
