Is It Halloween Yet?

Oh yes... How I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this time of year!  Weather is cooling down a bit, PSL's EVERYWHERE and a reason to start gifting!  So YOU KNOW I was all over Stampin Up!'s new Kraft Gift Boxes and lately spending time to find what will fit in them.  Of course I started with candy... I mean my 1st gift box IS Halloween-themed.  But then I started thinking outside of the box (pardon the pun) and realized this would be the PERFECT size box for a mini facial gift!  You can get a box of 5 sheet masks for under $10!!!  So down the rabbit hole I fell and here's what is in my Kraft Gift Box (#156569) featuring the, also brand new, Cutest Halloween Bundle (#156483) and the new Cute Halloween paper pack (#156479).  Check this out!  Isn't this the GREATEST gift?!? It fits a spa headband, eye mask and face mask packet PERFECTLY for a little pampering (psssst.... a small Ghirardelli square is going in there as well as soon as I replace the one that I ate... LOL) gift!  I got every

2021 Holiday Mini Kick Off

 Okay... Stampin Up! just released the August-December 2021 Mini Catalog, lovingly dubbed "the Holiday Mini" by yours truly! SUCH great things in this mini catalog!  But my FAVORITE is the Sale-a-bration Catalog because, well, it's all free with purchase!  HAHAHAHA!  Among my faves.... something you will NEVER guess because even I was surprised..... Um.... the Penguin Playmates DSP!!!  i did say FREE with $50 purchase RIGHT???!!!  Now, I'm SHOCKED!  This paper is cute (quite adorable frankly), which isn't my style.  It is VERY Christmas-themed (I'm not opposed to Christmas but I tend to gravitate more toward Halloween and richer colors), but this is PINK Christmas!!!!  WHY am I obsessed with this paper?  Well.... HERE'S why!   To be fair, this project is actually TWO of the free paper packs (I also scored the Peaceful Prints).  We're going to be featuring and making this super-uber-cute treat box, along with 5 other Holiday Penguin projects in my upcom

As I said, this box is SUCH a nice size.  And because it uses the graphics from the Wonder of the Season DSP, it makes this box a snap.  This would have been SO COOL using one of the red foiled sheets with the recipes for the base of the box.  Havi
