Halloween Treat Cups

Aren't these little Halloween cups adorable?  My friend Kelly showed me how to make them out of toilet paper rolls.  We just cut the rolls into thirds (1-1/2") and then adhered black card stock to the inside and some Designer Series Paper to the outside.  We glued them onto black scallop circles and attached some 1/8" taffeta ribbon for a handle .  I added the spiderweb and treats for boo! from the Mixed Medley hostess stamp set from the Holiday Mini Catalog.  They are ready to be filled with candy and given away!

Ornament Keepsakes Christmas Card

Yes, I have finally started on some Christmas cards.  I've been trying to savor every last bit of summer that I can, but there are so many great Christmas sets in the new Holiday Mini Catalog that I had to start trying some out.  This card is originally by Melissa Davis, but I have toned it down a bit so that I could use it as a swap card and make many copies.

The new Ornament Keepsakes set is definitely my favorite of the Christmas sets mostly because there is a coordinating Holiday Ornaments framelit set to cut each and every one of the stamped images out!  Woo hoo!!!  And if you purchase the stamp set and framelit set together in a bundle you get 15% off!  No need to twist this gal's arm.

And don't you love how the Delicate Designs perfectly coordinates with the large scallop edgelit?

Gum Holder Tote

At our last demonstrator get together we made a cute gum holder tote.  We used the flower from the Button Buddies stamp set.

For the gum holder I started with a 3-1/2 x 8-1/2 sheet of cardstock and scored at 1/2" from each edge on the long side and at 3-1/8, 3-5/8, 6-3/4 and 7-1/4 on the short side.

You can find the tutorial here.
