Hello Crafty Friends,

Today I want to share a Halloween Treat holder I created.  This is one of those quick and easy projects, that you can make multiples in a short amount of time.






I started with a piece of Fall-o-ween Printed paper, cut to 6 x 3.  I then folded the piece of paper in half and folded a piece back to create the pocket.
I then stamped the sentiment and the pumpkin in Black Licorice ink.  I distressed everything before attaching the pieces.
Lastly, I added a layer of Journey Glaze to the Pumpkin.

Happy Halloween!

Supplies Used:
Stamp: Jack O Lantern, Annual Celebration
Paper: Whip Cream Cardstock, Orange Creamcicle Cardstock, Fall-o-ween Prints
Ink: Black Licorice
Accessories: Journey Twine Licorice Twist, Journey Glaze

I then used a dauber and Black Licorice ink, to stencil through a web that I had cut with my Cricut.



I then used that same web to add to the corners of the card. 

I then cut out Frankenstein with my Cricut, layered him up and added him to the top.
Scary, but cute!

I hope I have inspired your Halloween creativity.

Hello Crafty Friends,

This past weekend I co-hosted a Halloween Crop.  One of the swaps I was a part of was a flip book.  I was under the impression that it was to be a photo album.  I soon found out that it is supposed to be a book full of goodies, etc.
Since I already had the book made, I added some goodies and called it a day.
The recipient said she loved it!  That made it all worth it.

Here is what I created:

Front Cover


Inside Front Cover
I included some images for the recipient to use in her projects.








I made two planner clips using my Cricut.







Inside Back Cover
I included some tags for the recipient to use


This is a full look at the book opened to show the three panels.











 This is the middle panel on the inside back cover.

I hope you have found inspiration today.
