Somehow I managed to stock up on our mini jam jars so I really need to get creative with some different uses for them. The jars are 2" tall by 2.5" wide so whatever I was going to make needed to be tiny. A few months ago, I jumped on the tiered tray bandwagon. This is basically a tray that has multiple layers, usually two or sometimes three, and you decorate them with little seasonal items. Usually the decor is crafty-type handmade items. … [Read more...] about Boo!
I promise I won't get carried away with Halloween quite this early, but I had one more treat holder to share. On Monday, I shared the little 3x3" pouches. Today, I'm sharing those fabulous Tombstone Treat boxes in the July-December Catalog. These boxes are pretty good size (3.5 x 5 x 1.25"). Definitely bigger than I thought they would be. I just love the little ghost from the Cute Halloween stamp set and used him on this box as well. The … [Read more...] about Hey, Boo
If you've been in a retail store in the last couple of weeks, you probably noticed Fall and Halloween decor have hit the shelves. Did you know there are only 69 more days until Halloween? I know, it sounds like that is so far away. But, it really isn't. Just think about how quickly 2021 has flown by already. And since it's Monday and I thought we could all do with a treat today, today's project is a small 3x3" treat holder. It holds candy, … [Read more...] about Treat Yourself
Today I'm sharing my second version of the August Customer Thank You card that I sent out. I hope they didn't mind that it was Halloween themed again. I just love this bat pattern paper from the Magic In The Night paper pack. I think this is the first time I used the Hallows Night stamp set too. I've used the dies a few times, but not that giant label, which I love. And I love that it comes in two sizes, which makes it perfect for layering. … [Read more...] about Second Round of August Customer Thanks
Today I'm sharing my second sampler in the series. This one is for Halloween! I love how this one turned out. Those adorable little ghosts with the googly eyes. If you hadn't figured it out yet, the ghost is the Tulip punch upside down. This sampler is sold as a kit. Everything is die cut and punched for you already. The cost of the kit is $15, plus shipping. The stand can also be purchased for $3. Contact me to get your kit shipped to … [Read more...] about Boo!
I'm doing better this month... since my August Customer Thank You cards are in the mail. Hooray! Today's card is mostly black and white with a touch of Terracotta Tile. I love the deep, deep orange color for Halloween. I used the stamp set Festive Post for this card. The images in this stamp set are designed to fit inside the Rectangle Postage Stamp punch. I love that this makes it easy to add small images to the card. As we race closer … [Read more...] about August Customer Thank You’s
It's time to start ordering your Halloween craft supplies, if you haven't already. I love making small candy holders to share with family and friends. Our small 3x3" envelopes are the perfect size for the individual M&M packs of candy. I realize 3x3" cards are tough because they are too small to mail in the United States. And, it's such a small size to work with. However, they make an excellent treat holder if you need something relatively … [Read more...] about Boo!
