Yesterday we made the Frankenstein box on UStream….doesn't he put a smile on your face? I've been hooked on making Frankenstein faces since my friend Julie shared it with me many years ago. Every year we just change him up a bit 🙂
If you watched my live show on UStream….I made some changes….I figured out that his eyes needed to be bigger. So…if you like the one on the right…bigger eyes is the only difference….wait ….I also used Pear Pizzazz instead of Old Olive.

I've just posted the video for the Halloween Origami Box on my Chic n Scratch Live! website. Click here to view that video.
And I've just posted my latest Bloopers video…. Click here to watch the my Chic n Scratch Bloopers #5 video.
I'm working on the video from my live stream today…… and ….. because I made a mistake with my live stream announcement….I will stream live again on Sunday at noon Central time (yes on Halloween). But…it will be a quick & easy…..if you can't make it the video will be available.
My project today is an Origami Box using the Batty for you stamp set with the Wicked Fun Specialty paper. I just had to show you another Halloween project 🙂
I realized yesterday that I never posted the video for the Origami box (that day was stressful..the phone rang and the dogs barked….I messed up the ribbon….etc..). But I think it's good enough to show you (I hope).
I'm going to finish editing it and post it this afternoon…..just a reminder the construction of the box will be the same…but the decoration is a little different. Click here to watch the Halloween Origami Box video.
Tomomorrow I'll be streaming live at noon on UStream, click hereto check out my Stamp with Chic n Scratch channel.
One more note…..The Chic n Scratch Classroom is going to be under construction this weekend…all the buttons should work..but the decor will change ….(I'm getting an error message on my template..so I'm going to uninstall and reinstall and make some changes..thanks for the feedback!! I really appreciate it.)
Thanks for stopping by!!

p.s. I need a favor….the holidays are a stressful time…I get it. But please keep negative comments and behavior away from my blog. If you feel the need to take a stab at something or someone ….wait 24 hours….and just maybe the feeling has passed and you won't feel the need. Ever heard the phrase walk a mile in my shoes before you cast stones? I'm sorry for posting this …but sometimes we all need reminders…myself included. Have a great day…and do something nice for someone you love 🙂
I spent yesterday working on my first project for My Chic n Scratch Classroom and I'm so stinkin excited! I was ping ponging back & forth about whether or not to do a Wow Project. On one hand I didn't want it to be so wow that all the future projects would be a let down….but on the other hand I've received so many kind emails that it just makes me want to do more! It's amazing at how encouraging words makes you feel like you can do anything.
So…since I was busy working on that….I didn't create anything for my blog…but I do have three very lovely cards I've received from friends that I'm going to share with you.
This first card was made by Jill and she brought me a card after I loaned her a few things before an event. Don't you love how she sponged the black on the web instead of the shimmer paint?
The next card was made by De and she sent it to me for my Stampin' Up! anniversary (8 years Saturday). Isn't it just awesome!! And don't you love how she added the orange tulle? Thanks De!! and thanks for the awesome marshmallows 🙂
My final card was made by Jennifer and she used the Every Little Bit stamp set with the Teeny Tiny WIshes. She gathered the Pumpkin ribbon by sewing one line down the middle and then pulled one thread.
Have a great day!!
p.s. My next Stamp with Chic n Scratch live stream on UStream is Saturday…at noon Central time.
Don't you love the Sweet Snowglobe stamp from the Holiday Mini Catalog?
When I started this Top Note bag …I was going to use Baja Breeze….but the more I worked with it …I just had to go with the Crumb Cake and Early Espresso.
The "Wishing you a Merry Christmas" came from the Jolly Old Saint Nick stamp set and how can you not use the Sweet Treat cups with the Snowglobe?
The almost invisible snowflakes you see in the background is from the Serene Snowflakes stamp set and I stamped off using Crumb Cake. I used the Moonlight Smooch Accent ink to color inside the snowflakes.
