Freebie Friday: Festive Post

 Okay... so first off.... THANK YOU TO EVERYONE who puts up with all of my technical difficulties.  Techie I am not, but I DO love crafting and I love sharing and so here I am doing the thing and learning.  The funny thing is, I JUST ran across an old video I made back in 2012 that I did with an old-school camera and uploaded to YouTube.  I'll be sharing here sometime in the coming weeks... you guys are going to LOVE the "revamp".... STAY TUNED!!!  LOL!  

But this week we are all about holiday preparations... specifically Halloween!!!  You KNOW I loves me some Halloween!!!!  Remember, the free download link will be posted under the last pic in this post AAAAANNNNDDDDD if you spend $35 in my online store using hostess code 7FHHJEE2 before midnight on 10/16/20, I'll send you EACH of the make n' take kits from this week's Freebie Friday Facebook Life post!  YAYAYAYAYAY!

First up is that AWESOME Mini Curvy Keepsake Box die!!!  SHUT UP it's so cute!  When they say mini, honestly, there is only room for a few pieces of candy (maybe)... perfect for gifting to someone who you may want to spoil but you know they don't want to overindulge.

Of course the sentiment involved masking (this may be an addiction at this point) and the hole to the striped tag we created was made simply by poking through using the Take Your Pick Tool and mat that comes included..... SOOOO EASY!  This is such a quick gift to put together because the box die cuts and scores in one pass, there is no gluing.... COULDN'T be more simple... simpler..... easier!

This next one is just as quick and easy (you're welcome)!  Those rectangle tins are WONDERFUL and I'm filling mine with a s'mores kit!  YEAH BABY!!!

Last up is the twinkie box I featured in last month's Ghoulish Goodies Class To Go kit!  What an awesome class that featured 8 Halloween themed projects from small 3D goody boxes for treats to larger 3D goody boxes.... even a box to hold a trio of essential oils!  And along with the gift card holder, we also did a twinkie box!  Call or Text 602-708-6449 if you want to get your hands on this awesome Halloween Class To Go.... I ended up with 2 kits unclaimed. 

Anyway, back to our Festive Post fun....I LOVE this simple and easy project that really classes up the common twinkie!  LOL!

I actually did a FEW to show during our facebook live (10 twinkies DO come in a pack after all... LOL)... here are a couple:


And one last bonus for you.... a holiday tag:

Past 7 Days....

I Love Being Hit By Mack Trucks

Ok, so my friend Cindy came over to play with all her new Stampin Up goodies.  When I first looked at the Yippee Skippee stamp set I fell in love with all but ONE stamp, "Never Underestimate The Power of Two"????  What the heck does that mean???  Is that supposed to be a "couples" stamp, like for Valentines or weddings or something?  I don't know, but when you apply that sentiment to alcohol, well..... Isn't it JUST so obvious how perfect this sentiment is?!?  I mean, it was like being hit with a Mack truck!  LOL!  Cindy and I were SOOOO proud of ourselves!!!  This card is AWESOME!!!!  We added the "or three" to the end realizing that it is just funnier that way!!!  We used a TON of Stampin Up goodies for this card: Inks and Papers - Crushed Curry, Calypso Coral, Bermuda Bay, Basic Black, Whisper White Stamp Sets - Yippee Skippy, Happy Hour Tools - Big Shot, Banners Framelits, Paper Piercer, Paper Piercing Mat Additional - Linen Thread,

You'd Think I'd Have Had Enough!

Wow.... so HOW many times can I use this image??? HAHAHAHAHAHA! I can't help it! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this Victoria Case Magical Sophie stamp !!! But, I promise, this is the last time you'll see her this season. I've got WAY too many new and oh-so-cute stamps and goodies coming and I'll have to use ALL of them this Halloween.... you know how it is. So I did this card for The Town Scrapper (which, BTW, is where I got this cute little gem). Today starts the sketch challenge for the week over there. If you'd like to participate, click on the link above. Of all types of challenges, sketch challenges are my favorite. And this particular sketch is super fun just because of all the design elements that are so perfectly placed. Check back in tomorrow... I will be announcing the winner of the October 31st Cricut Cartridge. There's still time to enter, here's THE LINK for the details. Good luck everyone! :)

Dealing With A Deep Pantry

Well... I am putting things together in the new house.  We've moved and I'm starting to find stuff in the mountain of boxes... unfortunately, my camera cord is not one of them!!!  So sorry in advance for the pics that are coming in the next few postings while I look for it.  But with Kevin's surgery over with and getting out of cramped quarters in the apartment, I'm finally getting my life back and into the swing of ORGANIZING the new home!!!  Needless to say, after such a long time of not posting, I have a few things to show you.  But I'm going to start with the pantry. When we first purchased the house I had grand designs to turn this DEEP pantry into a step in-pantry by removing the shelving that is currently in there and replacing it with thinner shelving (going from about 20" shelves to 12" shelves).  There is nothing worse than a pantry that hides stuff because things get buried in deep shelving.  But after paying movers and buying window coverin
