2022 Stampin' Up! Halloween Series #6

2022-halloween-series-6The sixth in my Halloween 2022 Project Series is this cute little bag from my Facebook/YouTube Live this week.   These little packs of tissues have been in my studio for a "few" years and are finally seeing cute packaging to gift to someone.

This project combines the pumpkin from Hello Harvest Bundle (English) [159644] and the frog and sentiment from the Best Witches Cling Stamp Set (English) [159860]

Since this project was demonstrated in my LIVE this past Tuesday, I've uploaded the video below to start at just the right place to see the how-to for this project.

2022 Stampin' Up! Halloween Series #5

Halloween-2022-stampin-up-5It's a special Saturday post for you today with our fifth in a series of 2022 Halloween projects.

This project is a little treat bag that is easy to assemble because... guess what? The treat bags are already made for you. You just have to dress it up a bit and we can do that with stamps, ink, and paper. Now, this particular bag is packaging for a teacher gift which is a cute Halloween bar of soap found at TJ Maxx.

Before we start with the how-to, there's an update that must be shared. The Witch Hat Builder Punch that coordinates with the Bewitching Cling Stamp Set (English) [159855] is sold out and no longer available!  But, no worries!  You can still use the stamp set and that little hat is super easy to fussy cut for this and other Halloween projects.

It's not too late to order to have some fun packaging and decorations ready for Halloween. So take a look at the video and see if it's something you can use. I'm all about doing something that's easy and quick and you can make this as easy as you'd like. These little bags are great. And they are special, not just for Halloween, but for any holiday occasion. The cut-out stars are just so cute. And, you can put any backing of cardstock or paper inside the bag as you'll see in the video. Now let's take a look and see how I put this all together.

Lisa's Inklings:

Here are the supplies that were used to create this 2022 Halloween treat bag:

2022 Stampin' Up! Halloween Series #4

Stampin-up-2022-halloween-stars-treat-bagLet's start the week off with the next in our series of 2022 Stampin Up Halloween projects.

This one is a tiny treat bag and is just the right size to hold a few goodies for those trick-or-treaters, children, or grandchildren. It's also a good size for a small gift like a pair of earrings, a bottle of essential oil.... just something small...a little "thinking of you" gift.

So even if you don't create for Halloween, you can use this idea for any occasion. The designer paper used here is a very versatile choice. It's called the Black & White Designs 12" X 12"  Designer Series Paper [159861]. The collection of papers features basic designs in black and gray and black and white. And, although it's basically our "Halloween" paper from Stampin' Up!, it can be used anytime. For this project, I've chosen the gray and black sides of two of the prints. You can see these in the photos in this post.

2022-Stampin- up-halloween-3-dot

The closure is very simple to create with two punched holes with some ribbon threaded and tied in a nice bow. You're ready to give a sweet gift to someone special.

Let's take a look at the video so you can see how to put it together!

Here are the supplies used to create this Halloween project.

2022 Stampin' Up! Halloween Series #3

2022-stampin-up-halloween-gnome-towelWe are switching it up a bit this week for the third in a series of 2022 Stampin' Up! Halloween Projects!  This time we are looking at a cute wrap for a gift for the "young at heart".

If you have been following me for a while, you know that I am always looking for cute seasonal towels or towels that coordinate with our Stampin' Up! stamp sets or bundles.  Our daughter, Kristen, has a good eye for trends, too, and she picked up a couple of gnome-themed towels at TJ Maxx last week.

These tags are simple to make and take a simple gift and turn it into something special.  Below is a different towel with three little gnomes embroidered along the bottom.

2022-halloween-stampin-up-gnome-giftLet's take a look to see how simple it is and I encourage you to try it, too!

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Scraps of Basic Black, Petal Pink, Gorgeous Grape, Pumpkin Pie, Basic White
  • Basic Black - 2-1/2 x 6
  • Gingham Cottage DSP - 2-1/4 x 5-3/4

Halloween-1It's time for the first in a series of 2022 Stampin' Up! Halloween projects from Ink and Inspirations!

This first project is a small pouch with a fun gift.  I searched the dollar store for fun little gifts four our granddaughters and found some cute items that will work and they will love!


Let's take a look...

Lisa's Inklings:

2022-stampin-up-halloween-1aThis pack of little window clings from Dollar Tree was easily cut apart from a big sheet.  Three of these fit just right into the pouch.

Here is the supply list for this Halloween 2022 project:

Notice that I did not use a Halloween designer paper for this bag.  This pattern is in Bumblebee from the Sweet Symmetry Designer Series Paper collection from the Stampin' Up! Annual Catalog.

2021-stampin-up-halloween-project-gift-pouchHere are the simple directions for assembling this easy gift bag for 2021 Halloween or any occasion!

  • The card stock for the bag is cut 8-½ x 11. Score on the long side at 4-½, 5-¼, 9-¾, 11. 
  • Turn and score at 1-½ for what will be the bag bottom.
  • Embellish the bag with die-cuts, stamped images, ribbon, and gems to coordinate with your card stock, designer paper, and for the occasion.

2021 Stampin' Up! Halloween Projects- Frightfully Cute Treat Box

2021-stampin-up-halloween-treat-box-1This 2021 Stampin' Up! Halloween Project is a remake of this box but this one is decked out with the Frightfully Cute Bundle [156493] from the 2021 July-January mini catalog. 

Isn't the blue and yellow a pretty combination?  This little owl is guarding a box full of sweets.  This box could even hold a little gift.


Here's a look at the how-to so you can make this 2021 Stampin' Halloween box, too!

Lisa's Inklings:
Night Of Navy Cardstock [100867] (2) 5 x 6. Score at 1" all four sides, (2) 2-3/4 x 3/4, (2) 3-3/4 x 3/4, (1) 2-3/4 x 3-3/4.

Crushed Curry  Cardstock [131199]  (2) 3-7/8 x 7/8, (2) 2-7/8 x 7/8, (1) 2-7/8 x 3-7/8  plus a small piece to stamp sentiment.
You will need scrap pieces of the other card stock colors to die-cut: Gray Granite  Cardstock [146983] and Early Espresso  Cardstock [119686].
Substitute Crushed Curry for stars since this Be Dazzling Paper is no longer available.


Look at all that chocolate goodness!  Well, to me, anyway! ;)  I always tell Jackie, my husband, NOT to eat the candy in my studio because there is NO telling how old it is.  If he finds this box, he will know these are fresh!


Although designed as a Halloween project, this is a versatile box that you could adapt for any occasion.  A small gift would be nice tucked inside.  Here are some ideas...

  • An infant onesie
  • A bottle or two of essential oils wrapped in tissue for added protection.  (It would be a good idea to use glue dots or a small piece of tape to keep the box closed.)
  • A gift card with a few candies.
  • Some Stampin' Up! adhesives for your favorite crafter.
  • Scented or specialty soaps.

These are just a few ideas and I am sure you can think of more!

Here is the Ink and Inspirations Project Sheet that you can download or print.  It contains all of the measurements and the products used!
