CC Weekly Challenge #43: Feeling Gifty

I don't know about you but my kids are sure counting down the days until Halloween.  It's so fun this time of year!  So, I created little treat bags for my daughter's Kinder class and my son's preschool class.  Since I had a total of 35 to make I kept the crafty side of it rather simple.  At this age, I figure it's all about the loot inside! LOL!  So, this one is easy peasy!
Cloud 9 Seasonal stack - all patterned papers

Treat toppers are 4 1/4 x 5"
treat bags are 4 x 6  (they were a bit long so I folded them over before stapling on the topper)

Doodlecharms Cricut cart - spider @2", pumpkin @2"

Pop dots, MS Drippy Goo punch.

Bags are filled with Halloween finger puppets and tattoos from Oriental trading co, small containers of Play-doh, and of course CANDY!  :-)

Thanks for stopping by today!  Good luck to all in this challenge!

CC October Monthly Challenge: Halloween Home Decor

For my home decor project I used a little black tree I got on clearance at one of the crafty stores at the end of the Halloween season last year.  So, I couldn't wait to get started on this one :-)

I used the Happy Hauntings Cricut cart for all my cuts:

witch's hat @ 2 1/2"
frankenstein @ 3 1/2"
mummy @ 3 1/2"
cat @ 3"

Ribbons by Ribbon Boutique (HL), Diamond & Lavendar Stickles, MS black glitter glue, red bling, pop dots, My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Life of the Party "Be You" twine, sew easy twine in lilac.

Another couple pics of it all together.  It was a little tricky to photograph :-)  (sorry, my pics aren't the best)

CC Blogiversary Challenge: Cuttlebug

Okay, two Cricut cuts and my Cuttlebug for this one.  Easy peasy :-)

A2 size card

Happy Hauntings Cricut cart - Frankenstein @ 3 1/2", Frame3 @ 4 3/4" (i cut off the bats)
Elegant Edges Cricut cart - Branch @5", 2 3/4"

Cuttlebug embossing folders - Distressed lines, Seeing spots (debossed this one)

Black glitter ribbon by Celebrate It/Basic-basic (M's), pop dots, MS drippy goo edge punch, black Zig pen for stitches doodling.

I ended up cutting the top of his head in green by hand because the stitches ended up way too thick.  So, I  just used the Cricut cut [from the top of his head] as a pattern and then doodled my own stitches with my Zig pen.  It looks so much more real this way :-)

Thanks for stopping by today!  Good luck to all in this challenge!
