Quick and Easy DIY Halloween Treats

If you weren't able to join us for Facebook Live today, you can find the replay here. Or you can find the YouTube video here.

FYI I will be doing a Facebook Live every Tuesday at 1PM Central Time! This week, I showed you how to make 4 treats out of 1 piece of cardstock! I showed you a Halloween version, but you could also use this pattern for Christmas, Thank You, Birthday... ANY occasion!

This Cauldron Bubble Bundle is just WAY too cute to pass up! This is the bundle you will kick yourself for not purchasing! And don't forget to add in a pack or two of that coordinating Toil & Trouble Designer Series Paper! YES the framelits fit the images on the paper!!! I LOVE THAT!

To save the "image" side of the paper, add a Brights 6x6 DSP package to your order (and you'll have plenty left over for other occasions!)

Here is the printable PDF with all the measurements and instructions for scoring and cutting.

Product List

So let's talk about what you can put inside of these little babies! Pretty much... ANYTHING! Watch the replay to see what festive treats I found at my local Tar-zhay. 

(That would be Target for those of you who don't parlez fran├žais...) LOL.

Really, they're a great size for ANY treat. Perfect for the classroom, teacher gifts, thank you favors just to have on hand...you name it!

I will be putting this design in my stash of "quick and easy treat packaging" ideas to have ready for use in a pinch! Halloween is just the beginning! Order your Cauldron Bubble Bundle (and extra paper!) today using hostess code: 9GMDRFBC for some free goodies with your order!

Thanks for stopping by!

P.S. You're the Best

I was inspired today by a color challenge by Anne Marie for the Paper Players! 

She chose 2 of my favorite colors and I couldn't resist adding HER favorite color! Melon Mambo!

I love this cute typewriter image from the P.S. You're the Best stamp set!

Product List

After finishing this card, I thought how cute a pink typewriter would be, and by using the same layout with different colors and paper, I created this!

I love coloring with the Blends markers! It looks so soft! 

Product List

If you're stuck and looking for inspiration, start playing with a color combination, or copy the layout of a card you've made! The possibilities are endless when you change up the colors, the Designer Series Paper or even the stamp set!

Stitched All Around Facebook Live Projects!

 WOW!!! Thank you to everyone who joined my Facebook Live today! We had SO much fun! I was inspired to institute a "Points for Prizes" system and had so much fun "making it rain!" LOL!!! I absolutely love the friendships made through stamping! Come join us every Summer Saturday at 4PM central time! The more the merrier!

The projects today were centered around the GORGEOUS Stitched All Around Bundle, and included a quick and easy gift tag...

Product List
a lemonade stand card - with the Sunny Days stamp set...

***note that for the top pennants to work, it HAS to be the full 4 1/4" width. If you do a 4" layer, the pennant die is too wide and will cut the top of your card off. I recommended making a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" layer to adhere (with as many dimensionals as your wish!) to a full sized (4 1/4" x 11") card base!

Product List
and a card copied right out of the Stampin' Up! catalog! (very slightly modified)

The Powder Pink card base is 5 1/2" x 8 1/2". You can make life a little easier by using 1 basic black layer that is 2 1/2" x 5 1/2". The Tropical Escape DSP layer is 1 1/2" x 5 1/2".

Product List

There weren't too many measurements because of the awesome Stitched All Around Framelits, but if you have any questions, please contact me!

Also, if you would like to get the pre-cut make & take packets, you can place a $30+ order online using hostess code: AZQJPUYJ at checkout OR you can purchase the entire packet (minus stamped images) for $10. Contact me for my paypal link and to let me know what your favorite in-color is! Lovely Lipstick, Blueberry Bushel, Grapefruit Grove, Pineapple Punch, or Call Me Clover!

In the facebook live video tutorial, I actually used Melon Mambo for the tag shown as well as for the lemonade stand card, BUT if you use Lovely Lipstick, you can buy just the in-color designer series paper instead of the in-color collection AND the brights collection. (Although, the paper is really fabulous, so you'll probably end up wanting to buy all the color collections anyway! LOL! *enabler alert*) You can also mix and match the in-color clips to add some variety! These 2018-2020 in-colors ALL look good together!
