12 Weeks of Halloween 2013 Week 4

12weeksofhalloween2013week4a

The Happy Halloween Box is the 4th project for my 12 Weeks of Halloween.

For this box I used the Witches Brew Designer Series Paper that measures 5-1/2 x 8 and it’s a nice size box to hold Halloween Candy.

To close it I used a belly band … but you could also use Ribbon.

I used the Seasonal Sayings stamp set with Pumpkin Pie and Black Stazon ink.

Here’s a picture of the box open ….

Halloween Treats

 Halloween-Treat-Holder_a

Every year I make these Halloween Treat Holders.

 They’re perfect because you get three out of one sheet of card stock and they will hold a bag of M&M’s, Reese’s Pieces, Skittles, Mike & Ikes … & more!

Click here if you’d like to see how to make them .. this link takes you to last years version.

I was saving all three of these for a later post …..closer to Halloween because they are good for last minute treats.  

 But ….. the headaches I’ve been having the past two weeks have taken a turn for the worse.  I’m not sure if it’s allergies, sinus, reaction to new meds or what!! It’s so frustrating to not be able to function properly  (sorry for the rant)!!

So … you’re seeing them early because it was easy to toss them on the tray and take a picture real quick.

Stampin’ Up! supply list:

  • Stamps:  Tags 4 You 131820 (W) 131823 (C)
  • Ink:  Black Stazon, Pumpkin Pie
  • Card Stock:  Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Witches Brew DSP
  • Accessories:  132153 Label Bracket Punch, 132180 Mini Muslin Bags, Pumpkin Taffeta Ribbon, Black Taffeta Ribbon, Linen Thread, Stampin Dimensionals

I’m taking my laptop to bed …….but I can only answer the emails that are easy and don’t require movement or a lot of thought.

Thanks & have a great day!

Personal   Stuff …….

salsapic

Over the weekend I spent the majority of my time in the kitchen (sadly I did not get to stamp or work… but I did manage to see City of Bones and JOBS … I LOVED both of them!!!).

We have a small garden in our back yard and …… our tomatoes ripened literally overnight. We’ve had a handful every week but this week … was a blowout (we’ve had cooler temps and the tomatoes are much smaller than years past).

So, Dave and I made Salsa, Pica De Gallo and bags of maters for our friends.

maters

I included one of our Salsa recipes with each bag of tomatoes (notice the Stampin’ Up! ribbon and Whisper White card stock?). I typed the recipe in Pages …. two to a page …measuring 4 x 6 (I prefer using Pages over Word) and just added the red dotted border around the text box … to match the ribbon!

Thanks & have a great day!!

12 Weeks of Halloween 2013 Week 3

12weeksofhalloween201303_a

The Monster Munchies Box is the 3rd project for my 12 Weeks of Halloween.

For this box we used another section of the left over Witches Brew Designer Series Paper

If you tuned in last week we used the first section for the Witches Candy Shoppe picture frame … like I said in the video …. I’m getting a lot of mileage out of one sheet of DSP!

Here’s another picture ….so you can see the side of the box.

12weeksofhalloween201303_b

After I assembled the Box I added some Halloween Candy to a 4 x 6 Cellophane Bag and one item I forgot to mention in my video is the Gray/Black Ribbon …. it’s from a kit we have available in the Holiday Catalog.  The Halloween Banner Simply Created Accessory Kit on page 31.

Here’s the video on how to make the 12 Weeks of Halloween 2013 Week 3.

p.s. thanks for all the well wishes yesterday …. unfortunately I still have the headache …. I’m pretty sure it’s a sinus thing!! 

p.s.s. If you’re a fan of My Chic n Scratch Facebook page I shared a funny story with everyone last night and I’ll repeat it for all of you …but let me first say “I have a very hard time doing nothing!”.   When I take it easy …. I’m still doing something (reading, watching TV, ipad, computer….etc) …. so yesterday afternoon I to took to the bed .. with several of my apple devices and when Chase walked in I was surrounded by them …..and he said “just how many apple products do you have on the bed?” My response was … “I’m creating a website … check it out”…. he was more interested in actually counting my devices. 

If you want to check out my progress … click here to go there now. It’s a website I’ve created for My Paper Pumpkin subscribers and I’m calling it My Pumpkin Club.  

Since I’m all wordy .. I get that way when I don’t feel 100% .. the reason for all the devices is … 

  1. Can’t go anywhere without my iPhone!
  2. Can’t go anywhere without my iPad!
  3. When I build websites I use two computers .. one to look at it each time I make a change .. and one to make the changes. Honestly I don’t know what I’m doing so it’s all by trial and error.  Hence the reason two devices works fantastic.

Hopefully I haven’t scared any of you off .. now that I’ve written all that I should just hit delete … and let my brain pretend I said it … but I won’t.  (My way of sharing the good with the bad .. or is it the bad with the good?)   See ya!

UPDATE – August 26th …

Congrats Sue!!  … your name was drawn to win the box.  We have several emails so I’m including a screen shot and Sue I’ve already emailed you (I don’t have your last name).

Awards Night Convention Card

 Awards-night-card

I have a whopper of a headache and was going to pass on posting on my blog today … but then it occurred to me that I could share with you a super cute card I received on Awards Night at Convention.

 I always SAVE every card they give me…. because they hold sentimental value as well as they’re always so cute.

This card was made with Coastal Cabana card stock with the Silver Glimmer Paper and the image is from the Really Good Greetings stamp set.

Have a wonderful day and I’ll see you tomorrow with another 12 Weeks of Halloween project.
