Paper Pumpkin September 2018 Alternative Projects & free printable case insert!

Don't forget to join me every Tuesday at 1:00 Central time for Facebook Live! This week I shared a couple alternative Paper Pumpkin projects - even though the treat bags themselves are ADORABLE! We made 2 cards with matching treats (using the treat from last week for one of the cards!)

My favorite tip from the video is using the background stamps with the Stamparatus! It's a match made in heaven! I know I'll be using those background stamps a LOT more from now on! (Another tip...use the Simply Shammy to clean them - baby wipes can leave lint that gives you a not so even coverage! OR better yet, use the baby wipe and THEN wipe clean with the Shammy! Win-win!)

I have several make and take packets made up for anyone that places a $30+ order in my online store with the hostess code: 9GMDRFBC by this Saturday, September 29th! And for anyone looking for the printable case insert, all you need to do is go watch my FB live video and leave a comment! I will FB message you the link! 

Not on Facebook? That's ok! Watch the YouTube version and leave a comment there! You can also join my monthly newsletter (see the top right side of my blog!) and you'll get it sent right to your inbox every month!

You'll notice the tag in the photo isn't the one I made in the video. There are so many fun punches! The possibilities are endless for cute tags using different punches/diecuts and/or cardstock colors! This is my new go-to thank you treat container to have on hand!

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 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!
