12 Weeks of Halloween 2016 Week 12

 12 Weeks of Halloween 2016 Week 12

12weeksofhalloween2016week12b

The Popcorn Box Mini Treat Holder is the 12th and final project for the 12 Weeks of Halloween

I made it using the Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper with the Popcorn Box Thinlit.  

The image is from the Jar of Haunts Stamp Set and it was cut out with the Layering Oval Framelits.  

This little treat holder is perfect for those small candies found in the bulk bags of Halloween Candy … and the candy I was referring to in the video was Sixlets.

p.s. I went out of town last week and since my daughter was home alone I only said I was away from my office.  If you tried to reach me last week and were unsuccessful, I apologize!!  Even though Brooke is 22 and old enough to be home alone … I still fear stranger danger! I know many of you know exactly what I’m talking about and thank you for understanding!  I will be caught up on email by this evening.

Paper and Ink Sketches 8

Paper and Ink Sketches 8

paperandinksketches8b

Here’s the card I created using Paper & Ink Sketches #8.

I made it with the Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set with the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper.

Sketch 8 shows using an Oval for the focal point … but I really wanted to use punches instead of Framelits. I used the 1-3/4 Circle Punch for the greeting that can be found in the Suite Seasons Stamp Set.  The Early Espresso circle was cut out with the 2″ Circle Punch.  And the Gingerbread man and the little bow tie was cut out with the Cookie Cutter Builder Punch.   

paperandinksketches8c

I will admit that this Sketch was by far the hardest for me … but I forced myself through and I LOVE it!!

Here’s a picture of Sketch #8  ….
