One Last Treat....

From my bag of Halloween tricks!

This is my final batch of Halloween cards using the wonderful Creepy Crawly Designer Series Paper. I've made several cards lately where I "pinned" back the double-sided Designer Paper so I didn't have to decide which side to use! On these cards I used the Batty for You Stamp sets and the coordinating Batty Wheel so the fold back reveals paper -- and text!

Stamp Sets: Batty for You, Batty Jumbo Wheel
Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, Whisper White
Designer Paper: Creepy Crawly
Ink: Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie
Accessories: 1 3/8 punch, 1 1/4 punch

No Tricks -- Just Treats!

Are you getting whipped into a frenzy over the Halloween party favors you need pronto!

Here are 3 quick and easy ideas.

The 2-5-7-10 Box -- created with one sheet of cardstock -- holds all kinds of treats. Directions HERE.

The Toilet Paper Tube Table Favor. Go ahead -- squeeze the Charmin and cut the rolls -- add a little patterned paper, and a punched Scalloped Circle for a bottom.

And the Coffee Filter Favor. Get out those plain filters. Use a Jumbo Wheel to cover them in a pattern. Fill with treats and tie!

(Nichole over at www.papertreyink.com created the tube and filter!)

October Projects

Here are the first of the October Stamper's Club projects. We're getting ready for Thanksgiving with a 6 x 6 envelope album -- it has spots for photos, journaling, even places to tuck in your favorite recipes. As soon as the dishes are cleared, you'll be ready to scrap the celebration.

We're also making a Thanksgiving card in a less-than-traditional size (so you'll get an envelope as well!)

I promise I am working on a Christmas Card -- but I'm just not satisfied with it yet. Stay tuned......
