Halloween Treats

I LOVE HALLOWEEN!!! I made candy corn treat bags for the trunk or treat at Alex's preschool this morning. I used the hostess set Mixed Medley along with some punches and the treat sacks from Stampin' Up!.
I also decided to make something for the teachers and staff at the preschool. I used the stamp set Greeting Card Kids (I told you I LOVE this set) and Howlstooth and Scaringbone Designer Paper. I colored the little girls using my aquapainter and reinkers. I really like the way you can shade with this technique and how great the colors look.
Inside each bag is one instant coffee pouch and a biscotti. I thought the teachers would enjoy this treat more than candy!
Happy Halloween!!!

Gift Card Holders

It is time to start thinking of cute ways to package gift cards you might be giving this holiday season. Here are some cute ones made using envelopes! So easy and a definite WOW!!!
Slide the band off and the inside has two pockets, one for a note and the other has a lip to place the gift card into and a circle to write the amount. 
 Here is the side view showing the pockets.

Christmas Blessings


I love this stamp set (Greeting Card Kids) and color combination (Real Red, Pool Party, Lucky Limeade and Whisper White). This is the card I did for our last "Stamping for Charity" event for the Alzheimer's Association.
