Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween Everyone! Today I thought I would share a few things that we made at Club night last week. I am not a big Halloweeny person, but I thought these were cute and when I saw them I had to run out and get some little Hand Sanitizers and make some for friends. Of course I made some with a Twilight twist for my fellow Twilight Moms, but I forgot to take pictures so I will make another one for me and share later on! You can find a tutorial and some other ideas here.

Here is a cute card I found while blog hoping. I was so excited about it that I forgot to write down who created it. If it was you please let me know. I just love the Owl and the Ghosts! Too cute!

And what is Halloween without pumpkins? They are even better because they have candy in them! These will be given out to my family for Thanksgiving, but we made these for club. The tutorial for this can be found here.

And last but not least the last little goodie. I found this one here. I thought it was a great way to give a little treat and use up some scrap paper. It just uses a 3x6 piece of paper. Easy peasy!

Stamp Set: Batty For You, All Holidays
Paper: Old Olive, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, So Safron,
Wicked Fun Designer Series Paper
Accessories: Scallop Circle Punch, 2 step Owl Punch, 2 step Bird punch, 1 1/4 circle punch, 1 3/8 circle punch, 1 3/4 circle punch, Boho Blossom Punch, Large Oval

Can you believe that I didn't use my Big Shot? I almost did on the card for some swirly texture but we got to talking and forgot! I still can't believe it!

Have a Happy Halloween. I am ready for Thanksgiving and Christmas!!!

I know! I know!

I have not fallen off the face of the earth! I am still alive! Things got crazy busy after the wedding with school and playing catch from the wedding. I have been busy stampin too! I went to Regionals in Baltimore which was AWESOME! I got some great swaps and learned some great techniques that I have been practicing. I also signed up to be a Tastefully Simple Consultant. I love their products and thought that it would be a great way to earn some extra money to support my Stampin Up! business and pay some bills! We all need that, right? If you want to check out what Tastefully Simple is all about, visit my website here. I also will be starting a Tastefully Simple Blog that will have recipes and tips for using your products. That is currently under construction, but I am working on it! I promise!

Here is a card that we made at Regionals. I just love the simplicity of this card. Easy peasy! You can stamp a bunch of these at a time and have Thank You cards on hand and ready to go!
