Ornament Punch

I haven't dropped off the face of the earth! My computer hasn't worked for a week and for some MIRACLE I actually fixed it right before I was going to call someone! Don't ask me how I did it!

These cards are one that I took a pic of at convention, because I knew I was getting this set and punch.. I am actually getting ready to go play with it now and will post them soon. I love how it offers you so many different ways to use the stamps and punch together!

Thanks for checking back after my absence!

Halloween Wreath

Hi stampers!
This wreath uses a green styrofoam ring. The Designer paper is cut into 6" x 1" strips and curled around a pencil. Use a straight pin to attach the paper to the wreath, pointing the curls in different directions. The bow is SU ribbon (I LOVE that ribbon!)
It's easy to make and goes very quickly! You could even pin on some candy here and there!
Can't you see this for a Christmas wreath, too?

Make & Take preview

These are the cards we will be making this weekend! If you haven't made a reservation for the make & take--you need to do so asap--thanks! What do you think? The Xmas one has something on the inside, also...it was all I could do to make it simple! I had to restrain myself from adding a ribbon or glitter or something else! Do you ever have that problem?
Hope to see you this weekend! Email me if you have any questions about the make & takes...

Halloween treats

These treats are cut from the SU die cut "Two Tags". Above, I colored in the stamp with markers and inserted a candy stick. On the other one, I used a rub-on. I rarely use rub-ons--well, I guess I forget about them! But they are SOOO easy to use!
Below, I tied a skeleton lollipop onto it. These are great to hang on a Halloween tree and/or hand out for Trick or Treat!

More Halloween ideas....

A tree is a great way to display handmade Halloween goodies like these matchboxes! They are made with the Big Shot die and designer paper. The embellishments are rub-ons, and they are filled with Tootsie Rolls. Tomorrow, I will show you the other things that are hanging on the tree, so come back and look!

Halloween ideas

I've been working on things for the Weston Apple Fest--and here are a few of the items I'm taking. Above, I've decorated the beer mugs with SU wall decor and filled with candy. It's very easy to put wall decor on glass! Makes a fun "guy" gift!

These are giant Pixie Sticks that I've added some halloween stamped images to--great to hand out for Trick or Treat--or to give to a friend. Twilight anyone? These Dracula's have candy in them and are cute for display. The face is made with punches.
I'll have more to show you later! Thanks for stopping by!
