Spooky Syringe Pens Video Tutorial

I have the most fun project for you today!! I am so excited about these fun Halloween treats that do NOT involve candy! I think these are perfect for the older kids, or even adults!

I found the Syringe Pens at Target in the Halloween Department. You can also find them here on Amazon:

 I bought a bunch and made them super cute for this weekends craft sale. 

And of course it needs a little blood splatter! Eek! 

I repurposed several non Halloween stamps here. None of them are specifically for Halloween and all of them are in the annual catalog. Check out my video for all the specifics.

Spooky Fry Boxes

I've spent the last two weeks busily preparing for a very large craft sale this Saturday. One of the the things I made are the Spooky Fry Boxes I made last year as well. (You an see all my previous craft fair posts here.) They were a very popular item! I updated them a bit using current stamps and materials, but they are mostly the same. 


For Frankie, I used the Black Satin Ribbon and the sentiment from Cheery All Year. 

For the zombie, I used my favorite chevron circle from Sparkly Season and the fun tombstone stamp from Sweet Hauntings. 

And last, the pumpkin Fry Box features the lovely Spider Web Doily (only 1/4 of one!) as well as A Little Something and Tag Talk. The circles on the Fry Box was created using an extra piece of rubber that came out of a stamp.... I can't remember which one. It's really just a throw away piece of rubber. You can get the same effect by using a Sponge Dauber. 

These are fun to make and a great project for kids to help with. Oh, and inside are two Rice Krispie Treats! :-) 

That's it for today! Have a wonderful afternoon!

Pumpkin Spice K-Cup Holder Video Tutorial

Are you on the Pumpkin Spice Bandwagon? Yea, me too. While I am not a huge coffee fan, I am a very big pumpkin fan! So, when I found these Pumpkin Spice K- Cups, I had to buy two boxes and I had to make them CUTE! 


I do have to say that the stamp I used here is from the August Paper Pumpkin. If you don't have that set, any little Thank You or Happy Fall type stamp will work.

I used our Tag a Bag Boxes and created an insert to hold three of the K-Cus. 

And the Corrugated cardstock makes the perfect "sleeve" for my coffee cup. I had to add the punch art pumpkin... I just never tire of it! :-) 

OK, so let me show you how they are made. It's a little long, but I think you can easily recreate these at home.

In Color Club Cards for September

Hello everyone! I hope you had a nice weekend! Today, I am showcasing my In Color Club cards for September. 
Each month, I make cards for each member of my In Color Cub. They get the card in the color they received that month. 

I wanted to use something from the Holiday Catalog, but that's a little difficult to do. I think using the Lighthearted Leaves set worked out nicely though. This is Tip Top Taupe. Can you see how aloft of green came out here? Not sure why... maybe this color has a lot of green in it? I used my Aquapainter and Tip Top Taupe ink to do a wash over the embossed images. 

Watermelon Wonder

Mint Macaron

Delightful Dijon. Doesn't it look a lot lighter than the cardstock. So interesting how the watercolor wash turns out. 

And Cucumber Crush. 

Ok, that's it from me today. I hope you have a great afternoon and I'll be back tomorrow with a new video (hopefully!)

Fancy Friday September- Founder's Circle Swap

Hello everybody! Are you ready for another Fancy Friday Blog hop? Our theme this month is FALL! It's finally here, so let's create some cute things in honor of the (hopefully) cooler temps and changing foliage! 

I have waited to show you my Founder's Circle swap because I wanted to use it for this hop! I used fall colors and a fall leaf to create this simple card.. only 110 times!! LOL! I water colored Daffodile Delight and Pumpkin Pie in various strengths. Once dry, I punched out about 500 circles. My hand still hurts... I layered them, sewed a line with my sewing machine and then attached a Gold Glimmer leaf and a Early Espresso "hello" (Greetings Thinlits)

I did some of them in just a Daffodile Ombre look... I liked them, but not as much as the one above. Oh, I forgot to mention I splattered the card base with Gold ink refill (shhh... it's retired! Boo!)

I took some pictures along the way as I made these swaps. It took many stages over many, many days!
I posted this picture on Facebook and everyone thought they were Pringles! 


A little Fear the Walking Dead helped me get these done! Oh, and the Fine Tip Glue Pen! Love it! 

Ok, that's it for me today! You are off to my friend Jeanna Bohanan! 
Have a great weekend!
