Before I get to today's project, I just wanted to share a reminder about October's Join Special. For our 35 Anniversary, Stampin Up is running a Starter Kit promotion from October 3rd to 31st. There are two different options to pick from. And now for today's project... the Haunted Mansion wreath. This mansion is created from a set of dies to create a variety of houses. The set has a bunch of different sizes of buildings, plus add-ons to … [Read more...] about The Haunted Mansion
I'm a little behind in getting out my August Customer Thank You cards, but they are in the mail! This is August's card.

If you place an order online or in person with me or subscribe to Paper Pumpkin. with me, you're automatically on the list to receive a thank you card.I can't tell you how much I appreciate your support. It means the world to me that you … [Read more...] about Thanks So Much
One of my all time favorite treat holders is this matchbook M&M holder. So simple, yet so cute. You staple the M&M bag inside and then decorate the matchbook. This is what it looks like open. I used the Happy Halloween strip to hide the staple. I had fun decorating the front with the pumpkin jack-o-laterns. The matchbook is so small it doesn't need a lot. What do you do for Halloween? Do you pass out … [Read more...] about Matchbook M&Ms
Now that it's officially October, it's time to start sharing some Halloween goodness. I love that the Pick of The Patch stamp set includes a jack-o-latern face. So cute! I paired this with the Them Bones pattern paper. There are some great choices in the pack of paper between the gravestones and skeletons. One of my favorites is this batty houndstooth pattern. It's subtle but once you see the bats you can't unsee them. I'll have a few … [Read more...] about Boo!
On Monday, I shared the Autumn Magnet Stand. Today I have the Halloween version. So cute! Mr. Bones is hanging out near his crypt and is joined by his glow-in-the-dark friends, Mr. Ghost and Mr. Bat. Yes, the embellishments really do glow-in-the-dark, and Mr. Bones glows in the dark too! The Mr. Bones kit is $15 and if you need the magnet stand, it's an additional $5. I'm hoping to keep the magnet stand kits in the $12-15 range. Just like … [Read more...] about Magnet Stand – Halloween
In the US, today is the day we dress our kids up in costumes and send them out into the world to knock on strangers doors and ask for candy. Don't worry, we tell them not to talk to strangers or take candy from strangers the other 364 days of the year. I know I said I was sharing the Christmas Scottie set this week, and I am. But, I'm starting with a Halloween Scottie since today is the day. Okay, the witch hat is a bit big for the … [Read more...] about Happy Halloween
Fresh off the presses, my October Sampler is now ready! I've been making an effort to not duplicate Holidays in my Samplers. And since I did a "Boo" Sampler two years ago, I was shying away from another Halloween Sampler. But I was struck with inspiration when I found the most adorable tiny spooky house die with matching tiny ghosts to go with it. The house is so cute! I love the spooky woods frame too. And it's a little hard to see in … [Read more...] about October Sampler-Happy Haunting
If you're like me, you might have taken advantage of one of the Sale-abration items last month, the Kraft Gift Boxes. These boxes were one of the items you could get free with a purchase. Today I used the box to make a Halloween treat. This box is a great size to tuck a nice treat in, like a cookie or a brownie, or small gift. The window in the box gives a nice peak at whatever may be inside. Don't forget to get out those items you … [Read more...] about Bewitching Box
