Halloween Friday Night-Out Class

Hello everyone!  I have some cute Halloween projects to share with you today.  We will be making these three projects in my class this Friday night.  Aren't they adorable??? 

Halloween Friday Night-Out Class
  • Date - September 30th (Friday)
  • Time - 6:30 pm
  • Place - Meg's Studio (Sequim, WA)
  • Cost - $15 per person including all the materials for your projects and dinner (pizza, salad and dessert)
  • RSVP - Click HERE to reserve your spot.  Space is limited. 

Halloween Gel Packet Card - This is really fun to make.  When I saw the eyeball image in the Jar of Haunts Stamp Set, I thought it would be fun to put those creepy eyeballs floating in a jar. 

To make a gel packet I used some Aloe Vera gel that I had on hand (you can also use some hair gel) and some Classic Stampin' Up! Ink Refill (I used Mint Macaron).  I also used the 2" x 8" Cello Bags (141703) to use with the Everyday Jars Framelits (141490).  You want to use the Tear & Tape Adhesive and/or Mini Glue Dots to seal your bag to secure the gel inside. 

Halloween Treat House - Isn't this so cute?  It's so easy to make it with the Home Sweet Home Thinlits Dies (140279) and the coordinating Sweet Home Stamp Set (140936).  Don't forget these products are available as a bundle (BUNDLE & SAVE 10%, #143516)

I stuffed my treat house with some Hershey Kisses and didn't seal my roof completely for easy opening. 

Halloween Test Tube Treat Holder - This is another fun idea to display Halloween treats.  It's really easy too.  I embellished it with some die cuts from the Halloween Scenes Edgelits (141842) and stamped images using the Cookie Cutter Halloween Stamp Set (142252)

I love the new Pumpkin Pie Glimmer Paper (142029)!!!  I used one of the tag dies from the Curvy Keepsake Box Thinlits (135853) for a quick tag.  Super easy!

Thank you for stopping by today.  Have a great day!!!

Spooky Fun Scrapbook Pages

Hello everyone!  Here is a two page layout (12" x 12") we made at my Scrapbook Club workshop this month featuring the Spooky Fun Stamp Set and the coordinating Halloween Scenes Edgelits Dies.  I had so much fun designing these pages!  Unlike my usual scrapbooking pages (I have a tendency to embellish too much if you haven't noticed yet!), I kept these page fairly simple. 

I love the Halloween Night Specialty DSP and wanted to use several patterns on my pages so came up with these layouts to showcase them.  In addition to the Halloween Night DSP, I stamped the ghosts image on a 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" piece of Vellum Card Stock in Whisper White Craft ink and used it as a part of the background on this page.  I really liked how it turned out. 

The Halloween Scenes Edgelits Die Set includes a really cool tree die.  To use this die as a photo mat I first cut Basic Black card stock to 4" x 8-1/2" and placed the tree die to the top, and then ran it through my Big Shot.  I also adhered a fence die-cut to the bottom of the tree piece.  It's a really fun set of dies!  Hope you like these pages!!!

Supply List
Stamps - Spooky Fun, Project Life Date It
Paper - Basic Black, Basic Gray, Smoky Slate Textured, Perfect Plum, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Vellum Card Stock, Old Olive, Halloween Night DSP
Ink - Basic Black, Daffodil Delight (sponging), Pumpkin Pie (coloring)

Thank you for stopping by today.  Have a great day!!!

Hello Stampers!  Here is one of the projects we are making in my Card Club workshops this month.  I am not sure about you but I love all the Halloween products in the Holiday Catalog this year!  For my Card Club workshops I decided to use the Spooky Fun Stamp Set and Halloween Scenes Edgelits Dies.  These products are available as a bundle (BUNDLE and SAVE 10%)!!!

I love the tree and fence dies which are included in the Halloween Scenes Edgelits Die Set

How about the Halloween Night Specialty Designer Series Paper???  It comes with great patterns, 5 double-sided designs (2 each) and one each of 2 single-sided designs with pretty silver foil.  Really amazing pack of paper.
