I thought these would make the cutest Trick or Treat loot bags! And I want your kids to have one, too! :)
Join me to make a tote bag, your choice of Halloween Costume and customization. If the name is longer than 5 letters we will use a smaller alphabet die cut.
Here is a close up of the bears in their cute little Halloween Costumes:As a side note, I am working on a Mommy and Me class that you can bring the kids to. But this particular project involves hot iron, and lots of little pieces that are just too complicated for little fingers. Stay tuned though, because I will have a new class in the next week or so that the kids will love. :)
Here is the Class info:
DATE: Sunday, October 18th
TIME: 2:00 PM
Space limited to 6 participants. Email me to save your space. Prepayment is required.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day,

The best part is that it fits in the standard size envelopes that you use for cards. :) This one uses Real Red Cardstock, a piece of Merry Moments Designer Series Paper, the Jolliest Time of the Year Stamp Set and the new gorgeous Real Red Polka Dot Ribbon. I love this ribbon so much...it's such amazing quality. It was really, really hard for me to cut it up and use it. LOL. I know, I have issues. I tend to hoard pretty paper and pretty ribbon. ;-)
Give it a try and make a few of these for your next holiday or birthday. Give a shout if you have any questions!
Have a great day,

The title "BOO" was made using the Big Shot. We are going to cut the letters out of chipboard (love that the BIG SHOT cuts over 50 different types of material!) and use some heat and stick powder along with our SuperFine Glitter in purple to make the title. It's very sparkly in person!
The tag on the left is heat embossed in Basic Black on Glossy White Cardstock, and then we used some sponges to apply the color. Such fun techniques!

I received my copy of Stampin' Up!'s paper crafting software, My Digital Studio, today. To call is a digital scrapbooking program would be a grave injustice.
It not only does pages, it does albums, and greeting cards, and calendars...and you can make movies and burn DVD Videos...
Now, I just got it this afternoon...I was all giddy with excitement as my favorite man in brown delivered it. After dinner, after walking the dog, after making sure homework is done, and backpacks are ready, and kids are showered...then I sat down to play. And you may never hear from me again. LOL. It's THAT good. And I have only scratched the surface.
Here is a page I made tonight...a Halloween page. I love all the digital elements, like the torn edges, the ribbon, the punches, the stamped images...all in SU's Exclusive 48 Colors. WOW!
Be kind, as this is only my first try and I have lots more playing ahead of me! LOL. I will be stuck to this computer all weekend I think!
Look for more projects to come. I am sure I will have lots to share with you very soon! :)
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day,

In this class we will use the Christmas Jingle Simply Scrappin' Kit to make this awesome Flip Album!
The album folds together and ties shut with gorgeous Stampin' Up! ribbon. When you untie it, it's an interactive album, that flips in different directions and holds lots of photos. It's perfect on a coffee table or mantle. It also makes a great holiday gift! Think about making one of Christmas's past for parents or Grandparents...it's sure to be a treasured memory for years to come.
