Happy Halloween!

Just a quick post to wish you a Happy Halloween.  How many of you recognize this item?  My friend and fellow demo, Debbie Henderson, posted an item she made into a business card holder.  I remembered where I had seen one and low and behold it was this Halloween tape.

Now here is a picture of the back and look at the songs.  Do you remember any of these?  If you do I would love you to post a comment about which songs you remember.

Fall Bags, Tags, & Boxes Stampin Up! Style

I am sure many of you will guess how I made this cute Halloween pouch.

Stampin' Up! Halloween Pouch TP Roll

If you haven't guessed it is a TP roll!  To my horror I recently read that companies are thinking of eliminating the cardboard center to their rolls?  How is is that going to work?  Any way, I love all the uses everyone has found for them.  Using it to make a pouch is one of my favorites.

1. Staple the bottom of the cardboard tube.
2. Crumple a 6" x 6" piece of Designer Series Paper then flatten it out.
3. Use Anywhere glue stick to glue the DSP to the tube starting at the stapled end. Tuck extra DSP to the inside of the tube.
4. Use a 1/4" hole punch to punch a hole on each side and insert ribbon or cord and knot.
5. Decorate!

Next, is a bag made made with Stampin' Up!'s Color Me Autumn Designer Series Paper, which I love!  Again this uses a 6" x 6" piece of DSP the Simply Scored Board. I found the directions for the bag on Sam Donald's blog.  I used the Autumn Accents Bigz die for the leaves and used Linen Thread to "tie" the Autumn Wooden Elements to the leaves which I attached with a Mini Glue Dot.I used a clothespin from the 2014-2016 In Color Clothespins to close the bag.

Halloween Holiday Home Style!

All Hallows Even or Halloween as we know it, is just around the corner.  I remember as a kid growing up, looking forward to Halloween.  It was a fun time of year and everyone could participate. No one knew who you were (supposedly) and it was one of the few times of the year we got to eat candy! I remember using a pillowcase for a trick or treat bag and coming back home with it almost filled. It was heavy – filled with all kinds of loose candy in little bags about the size of Stampin' Up! Polka Dot gift bags (well maybe a little smaller), or if you were lucky those hugh candy bars!!  You know what I mean, Hersey bars, Milky Way, big Tootsie Rolls, Sky Bars, etc. You could knock on doors of neighbors, most of whom were stangers and get a treat, always with a smile.  How times have changed! Now days children only go to homes of people they know and treats are smaller.  I do understand that candy is no longer the treat it was, given only on special occasions. Now you can even buy it in schools everyday.  But I digress.  

Today's post is a fun Halloween card using the Holiday Home stamp set. This card is part of my Fall Card Buffet this week.  Hope you like it.

I only had three banners(the other banners will be later this week) left from my kit so I decided to make a Boo Banner for Halloween with some chipboard from a local craft store.
