Yum, yum . . .

Here is another quick Halloween post for you. I have been meaning to upload this for awhile now but can never seem to find the time. I made this box for the test tubes by simple measuring and using my Scor-Pal on some Kiwi Kiss cs. Patterned paper on the front is from SU's Ghostly Greetings collection. I filled the test tubes with tangerine, kiwi, and black colored M&Ms. The medallion on the front was made using the Batty For You stamp set along with my 1 3/8" and scallop circle punches. Ribbon is Tangerine Tango striped grosgrain. These would be super cute teacher gifts, don'tcha think? *wink*

The countdown is on . . .

I have yet another A Muse calendar to share with you today. I have had this idea in my head for awhile now, but I was waiting on my new SU! goodies to arrive, which they did on Friday! I trimmed the square calendar page for October and rounded the edges of both it and its Kiwi Kiss cardstock mat. Next I covered the front and back of a chipboard coaster with Ghostly Greetings designer series paper. I used the Batty for You stamp set to create an accent and added some Basic Gray taffeta ribbon underneath. The bitty pumpkins were punched from Pumpkin Pie cs using a punch from the Target $1 spot. Each day a pumpkin is added to count down the days to Halloween. I also created a stand for the calendar out of another piece of chipboard coaster and covered it with Basic Black cs. I know my daughter will have fun with this as her excitement for Halloween builds! Hope you like it too!!! *wink*

Sweet Always . . .

A quick post just to let you know I am still here. Life has been keeping me busy lately and away from my stamp desk, but I was able to squeak out this project last weekend. It is a perpetual calendar, completely CASED from the one and only Miss Texasjodylynn. I fell in love with the hanging calendar she made using the clear card boxes and just had to make one for myself. I used the A2 sized calendar I downloaded from A Muse and the Sweet Always designer series paper from Stampin' UP! on my project. I love that you can hang it on the wall and see all the dates displayed in such a pretty way. That Jody is genius, I'm tellin' ya' . . . ;) I'll try to have some Halloween projects up for you in the relatively near future, so don't forget to check back soon, ok??? *wink*
