A Spooktacular Halloween 2019

Spooktacular-halloween-duoToday's projects are two fun Halloween 2019 treat-giving ideas using the wonderful Spooktacular Bash Bundle from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog.
One is a treat pouch sized perfectly for miniature bags or bars of candy and the other is the tag to hang from a drink or other treat.
This bundle is a fun one for Halloween but if that's not for you, be sure you don't miss the beautiful ornate frames. These can be used for any occasion.
Now let's take a look at the video with these two projects!

Pouch
Cut card stock for the pouch to 4" x 6". 
With 4" side at the top, score at 1/2".
With 6" side at the top, score at 1-1/2" x 4-1/4".
You'll need another piece of the same color card stock cut to 2-1/2" x 3-1/4".
For the sentiment, stamp on Pumpkin Pie card stock (3" x 4") then die cut.
Choose a character from the designer paper to die cut with a small frame.

Tag

For tag, cut DSP (designer series paper) to 2" x 4".
Accent strip is cut 1/2" x 2".
You'll need approx. 2-1/2" x 3" to cut Basic Black tag and 2" x 2" to cut Gray Granite tag.

Here is the supply list for both of these projects.  Host Code: 92ACNFY4

Make A Card and A Box with Harvest Hellos

IMG_0348The new Harvest Hellos bundle from the Stampin' Up! Holiday Catalog is a perfect addition for fall.  Apples and pumpkins are the themes and these two projects show off both.  The bundle includes the stamp set and a coordinating punch that will work for the apples and the pumpkins!

IMG_0350The card evokes a Thanksgiving theme and the box was designed to hold a back-to-school teacher gift. 

Here's the video with the how-to for both projects.

 

Lisa's Inklings:

  • You'll need a piece of Pretty Peacock about 4" x 5" to die cut the label.
  • The leaves were stamped and cut from a piece of Pear Pizzazz approximately 2" x 4".
  • You'll need a scrap piece of Crumb Cake cardstock to punch the stems.
  • The background layer is a piece of the Pretty Peacock gingham print from the Come to Gather Designer Series Paper Collection cut to 4" x 5-1/2".

A Christmas Truck and a Stamparatus Trick

Christmas-truck-and-the-stamparatus

Today we are going to be "building" this little red truck in the first video and a putting some finishing Christmas touches in the second and sharing a Stamparatus [146276] trick.

If you watched my last video, you already know that I've been showing off the Ride With Me Bundle [151106] And, if you've watched that video, you will also know that I promised you another video with a surprise guest!  

So without further ado, introducing my biggest fan and supporter...

 

This second video contains the Stamparatus trick that helped to finish out the truck with a Christmas theme.

Birthday Card and Coordinating Gift Bag with Stampin' Up! Ride with Me

Birthday-card-gift-bagWe took a fun "ride" yesterday afternoon on Facebook Live with the Stampin' Up! Ride With Me Bundle [151106].

This great bundle and it's versatile, too!  It's not only great for birthdays but also fall-themed and Christmas cards!  Here's a Christmas card sample from my Christmas in July series.

Birthday-card-ride-with-meThe birthday card above was simply stamped and colored with Stampin' Blends. You'll have to watch the video to see my reason for choosing this particular color.

Gift-bag-ride-with-meThe gift bag above shows an alternative use of the truck die and was inspired by a project in the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.

In the Facebook Live recording below, I mention a special guest that teams up with me in a recorded video of the making the 3D truck.  You will have to tune back in tomorrow to see that! 

Here's the recording for these two projects.  Sit back, relax, and enjoy the show!
