Halloween Sticky Hands Treats

Now to keep in theme of making treats for kids that aren't candy, here is one for the books. 
A big thank you to Erica Cerwin for coming up with this idea. It is beyond perfect. 

This treat is so amazing I know every kid will love it. And it works perfect with the theme of not giving candy to kids at school. Whats also great is you can get this bag of treats at Walmart for around $6. 

I was inspired by Erica's creation that I had to share. I did tweak it a bit from what she came up with but that's the beauty of being creative. You can come up with any design in the front of your treat and it will look awesome.

Halloween Pencil Holder

So even though I came up with a great pencil bag using our Cello bag (141703), I wanted to make a more fancy holder for them. I saw this holder on Pinterest and knew I had to make it match for Halloween. It was too cute to pass up.

This holder holds 4 pencils. It's the perfect treat especially if your child's school doesn't allow candy. 
You just can't go wrong with pencils. 

I used an array of our Halloween Stamps and Paper. I love the colors the best. The Gorgeous Grape and Lemon Lime Twist are my absolute fave. Especially since I am not a purple person at all. But I found myself using a lot of the Grape in all my Halloween treats this year.

Halloween Pencil Bag

Oh how I love Halloween! It is one of my favorite months and I look forward to it every year. I just love the idea of dressing up and eating candy. But over the years I have noticed that schools are cutting back on the candy.

My daughters school won't allow us to hand out any type of candy to the kids. So we came up with some ideas to give out instead. 
I found these pencils at the Dollar Tree and Walmart for super cheap, like 12 for $1. You can't go wrong with that and what kid doesn't need a pencil. 

These pencils are super cute and fun. Nothing scary about them. Our Cello bags (141703) are perfect for holding multiple pencils.

Abstract Impressions Butterfly Thank You Card

There is no denying a beautiful butterfly. 
I was very excited to get a new butterfly die with the Garden Impressions Bundle (148348). In the last catalog we had a set of beautiful butterflies but it has since retired. When I saw this new set in the catalog I was excited to play with it. 

This card came out so great. I wanted to show texture and the different ways to add them to a card. I focused on one main color and brought that to life. 

What I love about this card is it can be made in any color. You can use any color and pair it up with either silver or gold embossing powder and you'll have a stand-out card. One that someone special will truly appreciate. 

White Card Base:  8 1/2 x 5 1/2
score - 4 1/4
Silver/Gold Foil:  1 1/4 x 5 1/4
Blue/Pink Card stock: 1 1/4 x 5

Tropical Chic Celebrate Card

Time to Celebrate..... celebrate what you ask?
I have no idea..... but lets party anyways. 
This card is perfect for celebrating any occasion. It is fun, bright and beautifully hand-made. 

This is another type of card that can be made and any color. Pairing it up with embossing powder and it will pop better than the wine bottles. 

I can't wait to give this card to someone. And I know I have a few birthdays to celebrate this month.

A Little Wild Baby Cards

I have pushed myself and am making more baby cards. I love this stamp set. A Little Wild (144344) is the perfect baby card stamp set. The animals are so cute and super fun to color. 

I first made the lion card. I mainly wanted to use the Tufted Embossing Folder (146335) and incorporate it into a baby card. But when it came to making my video on the card I didn't want another lion card. So I made the cute bear and it became my fave!

These were semi-quick cards to put together. It was easy to cut everything up and even a quick coloring with the Blends Markers made it fun. I know anyone who gets this card will love it. What makes it fun too is that the stamps actually make tags, so your card will match the present perfectly. 

Card Base  4 1/4 x 11
score 5 1/2
Matching card stock 4 x 5 1/4
