Melanie's Class Halloween Treats

I've been busy making my granddaughter some Halloween treats for her preschool class.

These are your basic matchbook that has been enlarged to hold a snack size M&M's. You could eliminate the ribbon on the bottom but since I'll be mailing these to another state I wanted to make sure they stayed together. There are 30 Halloween treats to be mailed.

The wrapper’s measurements are:

9 1/4” x 3” Orange card stock
scored at: 4”, 4 1/4” and 8 1/2”

After cutting the card stock and scoring I ran the matchbook (that was folded so it would fit) through the spider web cuttlebug folder. The stamp that I used is from a very old SU! set...sorry can't remember which set. I used SU! scalloped circle punch and the corresponding circle punch for the spider image. I colored the spider's eyes with an orange gel pen. Also used SU!'s white gel pen on the scalloped circle.
I love how it turned out and I hope Melanie enjoys handing these treats out to her preschool friends.

Post-It Stands

A few more post-it stands for my craft shows. Stamp set is from papertreyink and the designer paper is from Michael's (sorry can't remember which paper company). Acrylic stands I found at WallyWorld for just under one dollar. Ribbon used in my projects is from a large ribbon order from JKM ribbons. These stands are very easy to do and I hope they are a good seller.

Teacher Gifts

I have a few teacher gifts today...all have been inspired/CASED from Kerry. When I'm stuck for craft show ideas I visit her blog...she has the best items.
I'm in the midst of working on craft show items. Actually my first one is tomorrow, Saturday October 8th., and of course I'm still working on a few items. lol I will be doing a total of 7 shows this holiday season. I have shows the last three Saturday's in November and the first three Saturday's in December. I will be quite busy.

I just love this stamp set from PaperTreyInk...perfect for teacher gifts.

Happy Birthday WMS

One of my all time favorite stamp companies is turning two on the 21st of May and Claire is having a party! We are having a tea party and I am bringing a cake slice.
Now I had planned on making a full cake and I do have all the pieces cut and scored...but I just ran out of time. This cake template is just too cute and very easy to assemble.
I will be going out of town for a long weekend and will be back late Tuesday afternoon. I promise to take better pics and post the details on what products I used. But in the mean time please stop by WMS and see what everyone has made for Claire's birthday tea party.

Thanks for stopping by!

Valentine Day Card

Hi to whoever still reads my blog...*grin*
I do know that when a blogger doesn't post that often (like myself) people tend not to stop by as often. I'm just not a daily or even a weekly blogger. Wish I was but I know's just not going to happen.
I did sign up for two craft shows in April...the first and the last Saturday of the month.
I have been busy making projects and cards to sell and hopefully I will be posting those in a timely manner.
This is the Valentine Day card I sent out to my grandchildren this year.

I'm very happy with how this card came together. A bit different for me.
I found the little brown envelope at Michaels and wanted to use it for a Valentine card. I punched hearts from solid and patterened valentine paper and put them in the envie...cute!
The base of the card is craft cardstock from PTI. I then layered a nice solid red with PTI valentine paper. For an added touch I also used PTI's natural twine.

I do have one more Valentine Day project to post that I made for the grandson's but I need to check on the corresponding link to give credit.

Valentine's Day Items

I'm not even going to give an excuse as to why these items are so late being it laziness or just life on my part.

These cute little treat holders were for my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter to give to her daycare friends. They hold a fruit snack (Dora)
So easy and so cute!
I found the idea from Dawn. Love her blog ....she is a great inspiration.
The stamp set is an older one from StampingUp. It is actually my go to set for children Valentine's. The sentiment is from Amuse stamps. Paper is from my local Paper Plus paper supply store and I buy it by the ream.
I filled in the butterfly with a gel embossing pen.

I do have a few more Valentine post, hopefully will post those tomorrow.
