Halloween Cones

OMG are we getting a bunch of rain, good day to stay in and make homemade Chicken Noodle Soup for dinner.  Kids are getting out 2 hours early because of this mess.  We are going to pop some popcorn and watch a movie when they get home, stay in and stay dry.

Well anyway on to these cute little things.  I am in the process of making a bunch of these cones for a Halloween Tree.  Kim over at Stamin by the Sea gave a Tutorial on these cute guys so I just started making a bunch (fun, fun, fun), I am not finished but I will show you guys the tree on Monday.  Thanks Kim you are such an inspiration :-)

Have a wonderful Day, Candice :-)

Bag Tag

I picked up these packs of chipboard in a dollar bin (5 pieces of chipboard per package) and I grabbed a bunch, about 10 packs. At the time I didn't even know what I was going to do with them, I just knew I needed to get them, and they have been sitting in my room for about 7 months. I thought I could use them at my I-Crafty Camp but I had way to many other projects that I wanted to do with them. Well just the other day I was blog surfing and saw a really cute round gift bag tag, and the first thing I thought of were these great packs of chipboard. I pulled two of them out and this is what I came up with.
What a cute way to dress up a gift bag.
I also played along with Stampin' Royalty Anything but a Card Challenge #38, so go stop on by and check out some of the other great projects here at their blog. Hope you like it, thanks for stopping in.

Reduce Reuse and Recycle

Nothing like being able to reuse something to reduce in the amount of trash... So I saw a card and I wish I could remember where I saw it and it was using card board like in my card and I just thought it was the coolest idea, hope you like it.

The Projects

Here are a few shots from my Friday Halloween Class, which I though went really well and all the girls seemed to really enjoy themselves. In the first 3 photos the girls are hard at work creating their background for the frame. You can click on the photos to get a much closer look. Thanks for stopping by.

Look close can you see the owl face... It is upside down...

Okay can you see anything in this photo that just does not belong...
Here are 5 of the finished projects and I have all the bats left to play with.
I will be making a T-shirt with those guys.

Designer Fabric by Stampin' Up!

Sunday, September 5, 2010


Just something a little simple and sweet. I love how the cris-cross (plus sign) of two of these labels look. I showed the girls at one of my last shows this cute little trick, just by taking two of these punches and making it into this. The punch is the new large Decorative Label found in the new Holiday Mini catalog on page 25 (item # 120907). This new mini is well going to break my budget!!! But then again I never can stick to a budget, he he he. Thanks for stopping in...

Wine Bottle Tag

When we all got that great gift at the end of convention Shelli held up some projects that used this set and one of them really caught my eye. So of course I have added my own touch to this project. Hope you like what I have done with it, thanks for stopping in.
