12 Weeks of Halloween 2013 Week 12

12 Weeks of Halloween 2013 Week 12

 boobanner_b

The Boo Banner is the 12th and final project for my 12 Weeks of Halloween.

I used the Build a Banner Simply Created Kit  on page 31 of the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Catalog.  I’m not sure about you …but I somehow missed that the kit includes all the stencils too…. I can’t wait to make one for Christmas!!

My banner is pretty simple compared to some I’ve seen … but ….. it’s one that you can whip out really fast. 

The colors are Old Olive, Basic Gray and Pumpkin Pie …. you could switch it up a bit and mix the colors together.

Two more days of Halloween

Halloween Hello Sour Cream Container

 sccloseup_b

We have two more days that I can share Halloween Crafts with you and …… yes I’m a tad sad about it! 

Both of the projects I’m sharing with you were given to me by fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators.

The first one is the Halloween Hello Sour Cream Container and Jill gave these to us when we were at Founders Circle in September.  I can’t believe I’m just now sharing it!  Don’t you love it?

HHsourcream

She used the Halloween Hello Stamp Set … along with the Witches Brew Designers Series Paper.  And look how cool he is with the Rhinestones for his eyes!

Next comes a super cute Halloween card from Julie …. when I received her swap at Founders Circle I immediately feel in love with it!  (You already know I LOVE Halloween projects.)

halloweenhellocard

She as well used the Halloween Hello stamp set with the Witches Brew DSP.  For the greeting she used the Best of Halloween Stamp Set.

11  years  ago  today   ……

I became a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator ….. what an amazing ride it has been!  

In honor of my 11 year anniversary I’m giving away 11 of these boxes (they’ll arrive flat and all you’ll do is add adhesive and assemble).   There will be an assortment of colors (Real Red, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Wild Wasabi).

Click here to see the Halloween version …. also called Trick or Treat Boxes.

hohohobox

To enter to win …  leave a comment on this post … and if you’re looking for something to say … just tell me how long you’ve been a stamper.  The drawing will end Saturday evening and I’ll post the winner on Monday.

Thanks & have a great day!

p.s. Don’t forget tomorrow will be the final 12 Weeks of Halloween project for this year.

My project today is a Frankie Box and every year I make one of these guys.  

This year I decided to use our Kraft Boxes … because if you’re a last minute person like myself … you can make these really fast!

I used the 3/4 Circle Punch for the Old Olive Card Stock and the White ….. and  I used the 1/2 Circle Punch for the Black card stock.

Personal  Note

If you tried to reach me towards the end of last week … I’m really sorry!  I was sick with a stomach bug and I was in bed for three days.  Holy Cow am I glad that’s over!  I seriously thought on Saturday I was going to have to go to the ER … but I woke up Sunday feeling much better.  As you can imagine … since I was in bed .. I’m terribly behind on email.  But … I will do my best to get to the important ones quickly.  If you have an urgent matter please email me again!!   I do need a favor … please use a term in the subject line that relates to what you need.  I can get through them much quicker!!!

Over the next couple days I’ll be sharing some Halloween Swaps that I received (either from Convention or Founders Circle).

Thanks & have a great day!

Trick or Treat Boxes

Trick or Treat Boxes

 Trick-or-Treat-Boxes-_b

My project today is what I’m calling a Trick or Treat Box … they’re so easy to make that you can pass them out to all your Trick or Treaters!  

I used the Best of Halloween stamp set and do you see those daring Candy Dots?  If you don’t have the Candy Dots you can always use your markers (notice the Pumpkin one).

This Teeny Tiny Box will hold a snack size Kit Kat Bar …and I do mean snack size… or it will hold three Hershey Kisses.  Here’s a look at the inside …

Tiny-Halloween-Box

Here’s a video on how to make the Trick or Treat Boxes.

Stampin’ Up! supply list:

  • Stamps:  Best of Halloween 134381
  • Ink:  126950 Rich Razzleberry, 126953 Old Olive, 126945 Pumpkin Pie
  • Card Stock:  130134 DSP Stacks – Bright Collection, 100730 Whisper White
  • Accessories:  126889 Stampin’ Trimmer, 130931 Candy Dots, 126189 Paper Piercer, 124294 Sticky Strip, 119849 Modern Label Punch, 104430 Dimensionals
  • Optional Markers: 120970 Rich Razzleberry, 100079 Old Olive, 105115 Pumpkin Pie

Do you sometimes wonder if I pass out stuff like this?  The answer is yes … in the years past ….. I would have special treats for the kids on our street (at one time we had 35).  We’ve given out full sized candy bars …. and one year I passed out homemade cookies (I stay away from that now because I personally want to eat the whole batch).  

I’m also the neighbor that wore a costume every year … would you like to see some pictures of years past?  Maybe that would be a good post for Halloween day!

Now that Chase and Brooke are young adults … I’ve lost my spark …. but as we all know things tend to circle back around.

Wow, I just wrote you a short story … I could hit delete… but … I won’t.  LOL

Live  Stream  on  UStream

I’ll be streaming live tonight at 6:30pm central time.  We’ll go over any questions that you may have about joining Stampin’ Up! for $25 (tonight is the deadline) and then we’ll make a little stamping project (it could be two hours or it could be one …. depends on the questions).  Click HERE to head over to my UStream channel.  And if you’re on my Chic n Scratch Facebook page I’ll post a reminder this afternoon.
