BACK To Halloween.... WHEW!

Okay... BACK to Halloween gifting this week!  We're makin more goody boxes using The Cutest Halloween Bundle again this week, we are also featuring the tags and labels dies from the July - December 2021 Mini Catalog (lovingly dubbed "the holiday mini").  I've got to admit, this bundle really is the cutest and I'm having SOOOO much fun playing with it simply because of how easy it is to work with.  The fact that the punch ALSO punches out the images from the DSP makes this one a super-huge winner for me.  I mean.... three goody projects in under an hour!?!  That's right!  This week's Freebie Friday On A Monday was actually recorded in under 40 minutes!  SO DOABLE to get ready for Halloween gifting!  As always, the link to the free PDF with supplies used and measurements is below the last pic and if you place a $35 or more from my online store (click "Shop With Me" in the banner at the top of this blog) using this week's Host/Hostess code GHRGHEEW by 10/18/21 at 11:59 p.m., will receive all three of these make n' take project kits FOR FREE!!!  The instructional video is at the very bottom of this post!

Let's dive in with the SUPER CUTE mini treat box that also holds one of those mini sanitizers from Bath and Body Works to perfection... note that it doesn't go into this box flat.  It fits perfectly if you place it in so the sides of the sanitizer go into the box from corner to corner.


So I can say that for ALL of this week's projects, you can really put a dent in using up the scraps!  This one is probably the only project that MAY require cutting a full sheet, but I think if you dig a little... I'm almost positive that you could scrounge a 5 1/2" x 5 1/2" scrap of basic black!  LOL!


Okay.... could this one be any easier?!?  The new Seasonal Labels dies make this caramel apple presentation a snap!  You will need a stapler for this one....



I mentioned in today's video that this one would be PERFECT filled with some Halloween candy and stood up on a place setting at a dinner party.  Can you see how perfect this treat box is with someone's name added to it?  So great!

Okay you guys.... that does it for today!  It's good to be back to Halloween!  I know... even I'm a little shell-shocked from the Christmas departure in October, but it had to be done!  We're back to Halloween goodness so the Earth is back on its axis and all is back to normal!  So use up those scraps and spread some Halloween Cheer!

My Kind of Art

Welp, today was girl's day! I was so lucky to spend the afternoon with great friends at one of my favorite venues... a rubber stamp fair! And while this post is REALLY about the AMAZING gem that is pictured here, I do want to mention how sad I was to see the fair was about 1/8 of what it has been in past years. Gone were the ENORMOUS door prizes, in their place were coupons that were given to the lucky winners. Replacing the shoulder to shoulder vendor booths were widely spread vendor tables that didn't even fill the convention center. In past years we could barely make it through the thick crowd and today was a leisurely meander through slim pickins. I was sad to see that this event that I always looked so forward to had diminished so drastically in our struggling economy. The brighter side of this sad, sad tale is the fact that I didn't have to scratch anyone's eyes out or pull anyone's hair to get my hands on the amazing artwork that you see here. Featured here
