IMG_0852

Happy Halloween and welcome to our Week 12 (FINAL!) project using Stampin' Up! products! 

I am sharing an idea that is you can make today!  So, dig out those designer papers, a little ribbon, and some stamps to make a tag and you'll be ready to go.

Let's take a look at the video tutorial and you can get to work!

Lisa's Inklings: 

  • Measure the width of your box or candy bar.  I cut mine at 6" x 12" to get two pieces from one sheet of paper.
  • Use punches for a stamped image or sentiment.  Stack these up as seen in the video.
  • Ribbon, twine, or cording wrapped around the package makes a nice finishing touch.

Changing the Background of Designer Series Paper

IMG_0731

Here's a tip that will help you easily change the white or light neutral background color of designer paper. 

When creating a Halloween project, I wanted the background color of this paper from the Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper collection.  The Whisper White background just wasn't the right touch for the idea in my head.  A nifty little tool came "to the rescue".

Let's take a look at the video tutorial...
