A little Halloween Fun

I had the chance to create some fun Halloween projects over the weekend.  I created the take-out-treat box first and thought it turned out so cute that I wanted to try it on a card.

This fun project was created using:

  • 147531 $11.00 Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper
  • 147898 $4.00 Black Foil Sheets
  • 147897 $8.50 Glittered Organdy Ribbon
  • 147713 $29.00 Cauldron Bubble- Wood or
  • 147710 $21.00 Cauldron Bubble- Clear
  • 145649 $10.00 Scattered Sequins Embossing Folder

Colors used:

  • Basic Black
  • Granny Apple Green
  • Cajun Craze
  • Gorgeous Grape

Accessories & Adhesives Used

  • Sponge Daubers
  • Snail Adhesive
  • Paper Trimmer
  • Paper Snips
  • Big Shot Die Cutting Machine
  • Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Mini Glue Dots

This were super fun and easy to make.  The treat boxes would be perfect for a child’s class, their good friends, a party or if you don’t have very many trick-or-treaters the few you get would love this special treat.  Remember you can order any of these projects on my site.  Please share you own holiday creations.  I’d love to see what you came up with.

July 2014 Paper Pumpkin fun Wish Big

Can I just say I am so in love with this kit.  Seriously I had so much fun creating these projects.  When I saw the kit at Convention I couldn’t wait to get home and put them together.   I thought you would have a little fun walking through the experience with. Well kinda.  So here’s what you see when you first open the box.  This gives you a pretty indication of what every box looks like.  Just like opening a present right?

Opening Paper Pumpkin

I didn’t take a picture of everything all bundled up because I really wanted you to see what was included in this kit.  You get 6 boxes and 6 cards with envelopes.  While you get great instructions on how to make the projects on the front of the sample instructions they also love to give you extra stuff so you can have fun being creative.  This kit has so much extra stuff you will love it.

Contents of July 2014 Paper Pumpkin Kit

So first here are 4 boxes and 5 cards that I made using just what was in the kit.  Now most times you need to add adhesive and scissors, but this kit was great no adhesive needed (at least not to create the projects how they are show.)  You’ll notice that I’m only showing 5 cards and 4 boxes.  Well that’s because I already made a box and card a gave it away to an awesome customer.  The missing box, well that’s up next.

 

July 2014 Paper Pumpkin Kit Samples

 

Sara Douglass show us this idea at Convention and I just had to make one of my own.  So these cards are 2 3/4 x 4 1/4.  They are basically a regular card size cut in 1/2.  Now I could have cut the ones that came with the kit in 1/2 but I decided to just use 2 pieces of Whisper White Cardstock instead.

 

July 2014 PP- Cards in a Box

 

Now I’m sure you are dying to see the cute cards inside.  So here they are. For the most part they are just like Sara’s however I folded my cards different so I tweaked some just a bit.  I also used a few pieces of scrap Whisper White Paper for the popped up sayings as well as some dimensionals.  Now you will have plenty o the fun stickers, ribbon and accessories to make these cute cards.  I also used Softy Sky ink pad for some of the stamping.  I decided to include ribbon around the box along with a cute silver star.  Just a note I did cut off the top part of the box, I even used some of it on a card.  I also used some Soft Sky paper and the Envelope Punch Board to create a cute matching envelope.

Note- to make envelope start with a 6 x 6 paper. Follow the following punch and score system to create a rectangle envelope.

  1. Punch and score at 3 1/2
  2. Turn a 1/4 turn and punch and score at 2 1/2
  3. Turn  a 1/4 turn and punch and score at 3 1/2
  4. Turn a 1/4 turn and punch and score at 2 1/2

Once I was done I cut 1″ off the end that is in the inside the card but it’s not necessary.

July 2014 PP - Box Cards

These card’s inspired me to make some cards that would fit inside the box it’s self.  How cute are these.  So they are 1/2 the size of the ones above 2 3/4 x 2 1/8.  I was able to get all 8 cards out of one sheet of Whisper White Cardstock.  Again I added a few scraps of white, but the embellishments and stickers all came from the same paper pumpkin kit.

July 2014 PP- Mini Cards fit in box

So last I wanted to show you a card that you could make once you’ve created everything with your kit.  So this one is made with my own supplies with one exception.  I still had lots of silver stars left so I did use one of them.  This card will be featured at my  Stampin’ Buffet next month.  You’ll be able to come and make it for just $1.00 along with lots of other great cards.

A Little Thank You Tag

I had the opportunity this week to go down to Stampin’ Up! and help the advisory board with a project.   I wanted to take them a little gift just to say “thank you.”  I had lots of zucchini thanks to awesome Dad so I decided to make little zucchini breads with this cut tag.  I love how they turned out and it was so fun to share them with the hard working team.  I used the leaf from the holiday catalog along with a thank you set and the grunge set from the maim catalog.

More Fabric Fun – Want it free? Ask Me?

I’ve have fallen in love with my Big Shot again.  Who knew fabric could be so fun.  So I had to share a few more projects with you.

First is my Flip Flops.  I was in the fabric store the other day and was talking to a girl.  She told me she had seen these cute flip flops with flowers on them and thought how cute it would be to make them.  Of course I loved the idea and knew how easy it would be to make them so I headed straight home to make my own.  If you would like some of your own it’s so easy.  You can buy the Big Shot or if you want to have a party I’d be happy to come and make some for you.  The flowers are so fun, because you can also put them in your hair, add them to a purse or a skirt or anything else you can think of.

Speaking of purses.  I’ve been having so much fun making new purses.  Here’s my latest one.  I even put in pockets on this one.  I’ve had lots of people ask me how they can make their own so I thought I’d give you three great ways to get one.

First I’m going to be doing a class.

I haven’t decided on a date yet, I will figure that out after I know who wants to come.  But I’m thinking it will be sometime in July.  The class will be just $5.00 however there are a few requirements.  First space will be limited.  You will only be able to make one purse with two outside side pockets.  The purse will be the same size as the one shown here.  Plus you will need to bring your own material, batting and sewing machine.  I will help you with everything else.

Second you can get one for FREE by hosting a workshop.

Yes I said FREE.  I will be making at least one, maybe more depending on how many parties I get.  I’m down to the end for earning my cruise to Alaska and I need a little help.  So I will be giving one away to one of my hostesses.  All you need to do is contact me to schedule your in-home party and you will be entered to win.  Now here’s the extra bonus.  You will get an extra ticket to win with every $100.00 in sales at your party as well as a bonus 5 tickets if you have a $400.00 party.  If you have a $1000.00 party you will get one for FREE.  Remember the retired list comes out June first so this is  a great time to have a party and help your friends and family get what they want before they are gone.

Third join my team.

I have loved sharing this idea with my customers and want all of my down-line to have it.  If you sign up before the end of June I will help you make one of your own, all you need to do is provide the materials.  Sign up by May 26th and I will provide the material for you.  Of course the best part about this option is you will get all the great products to get your business started and be able to start making money yourself.  Plus you will have the time of your life doing something you love.  Click here to learn more about joining my team.
