Bucketful of Pumpkin Fun!

This cute pumpkin is quite large! check out the
picture below... it holds sooo many goodies!
The pattern is all over the internet right now.
It is made with three pillow box dies all put together.
If you don't have one, you will need one for this
I found it on Splitcoast Stampers, this is my
version. The green vine is a very thin cut piece
of cardstock that I twisted around a pencil. xoxo

Top Note Party Favor Boxes

Today's posts are four boxes I made with the SU! Big Shot
dies. I used the party favor box and two of the top note dies and
then cut a 1 inch strip x 9 for the handle. The box above is made
with the new very large snowman stamp called Simply Season Thanks
with the Bliss Blue, Certainly Celery and white cardstock. I took the
large chunky glitter to cover him so he looked a little vintage.

Mr Dracula is made with the same pieces except his eyes
are done with the 3/4 circle punch and the nose with the arrow
punch. The mouth is a candy piece you can buy by the pound
at top foods.

These two cuties are the new Build a Bear Dies!
Aren't they to die for! Hee Hee! Again I made
the boxes and then just punched out all the pieces
to put together these trick or treaters! Not much
to do as they decorate easy, you just pick the colors
for the outfits! If you don't have the dies to
make these and just need them! Email me! xoxo

Halloween Tins

Thses little tins I found at your local dollar spot.
On the two outer tins I have used the Spooky Treats
rub ons again to decorate them and the center one
is made by stampin the image on cardstock cutting
it out and adhering it to the tin. The stamp is from
the stamp set called From the Crypt from SU! xoxo

Just Chillin!

I'm just "chillin" today with the cool SU! rub ons
called Spooky Treats. I took the skeleton one
and first cut out the skull and rubbed it onto
white cardstock and cut it out. Then I took the
flourdelee and rubbed it onto pumpkin pie
cardstock and then attached the skull with a
dimensional. The one on the left is the new SU!
matchbox die and on the right is a halloween pin
I made with the same rub on. Sooo easy! I topped
it off with crystal effects to make it more permant.
Have a chillaxin day! xoxo

Party Favor Die Box Altered

Today's post is the new SU! Party Favor
bag that I have altered. I cut out the box with the
new Christmas Cocoa paper, I then took basic gray cardstock
cut a piece 2 1/2 x 11 and ran it through the die at the
bottom of the box. Assemble it. Take the original box
and put adhesive strip around the bottom and slide it
into the new gray bottom that you just assembled.
I added the eyelet lace around the bottom. The handle
is made with the circle cutter and attached with the brads
and the rounder tab punch holds it all together. Add some
christmas candy sticks and a tag and it makes a pretty little
gift for that someone special. xoxo

Paint Can Craft Holder

This was a fun and quick craft you can incorporate to
your stamp camps or classes. What I used are the
medium sized paint cans measuring 4 1/2 inches tall.
I covered them with cardstock, the paper shown is
"La Creme' by DCWV. Beautiful paper and goes well
with my craft room! Cut your cardstock 4 1/2 x 6 1/4
to fit around the can, then you will have to cut another
4 1/2 x 3 to cover the small part that won't reach.
Line up the cans as shown and added the very big
glue dots on all sides to attach. I added the bows
and the close up below shows the use of SU! pretties
kits with the pin and beads. Have fun making these!
You can put your scissors, rulers, adhesives anything
you need to reach for on your desk. xoxo
