Trick or Treat?…


Hi there! For the foreseeable future I will be posting once a week so here’s what I have for you this week!  Halloween, not so big in the UK as it is in The States but I think it is getting bigger every year – there certainly seems to be more in the shops every year!  My kids get dressed up and I’ll take them trick or treating to family but that’s about it for us!  We live on a lane which is the last street in our village before a short walk to the next village.   I think this is the reason not many people venture round our way for trick or treating, so we end up being left with loads of candy (husband always insists on buying lots – just in case we have a mass invasion of little ghosties and witches knowing full well we hardly have any!) My family always give my kids way too much – in fact we still have some left from last year – I bet that’s yummy! (even though it’s still in date!)  Anyways, getting back to my little treat bags that I have made.  I love making these, I could make them all day long.  This would be silly, however, as I have just said, we don’t get many trick or treaters so who would I give them to?!!  I have made a few more since I took these photo’s so I will be giving these out to my kids and nephew.  No doubt they’ll be getting some bigger bags of the sweet stuff too to go with these!






Supplies – Lawn Fawn: Trick or Treat stamps and dies, Holiday Party Animal stamps and dies, Party Animal stamps and dies, Spooky Hemp Cord, Perfectly Plaid  Fall papers, Let’s Polka in the Dark papers, Scalloped Treat Box Die, Stitched Circle die and Forest Border die.  Paper Smooches Deco Bag die, Reverse Confetti Tagged Tote die, Spellbinders circle die, black cardstock and Versa Magic Cloud White ink pad. I also used the ‘Happy Halloween’ stamp from Clearly Besotted’s ‘Out of this World’ set and the Sophisticated Script alphabet set from Concord & 9th. Spectrum Noirs to colour and Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad. Yes, it’s a long list!

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a great weekend, take care – Karen 🙂


From the Heart Stamps – June Stamp of the Month

Ice-cream Treat

Hello there, I hope you’re enjoying your weekend so far!  It’s a very quick visit from me today with this treat bag that I made using the Stamp of the Month image for June at From the Heart Stamps and it is called Ice cream Lineup and here it is!

FtHS_Ice Cream Lineup PreviewI printed the lineup of ice-cream and coloured them in with Spectrum Noirs,  then I cut them out and popped them on the bag – easy peasy!  If you didn’t participate last month you can still take part this month by either buying the image in store or you can get it for FREE if you spend $10 in store and quote SCREAM.  You have until the end of the month to upload your creations to the BLOG.  All challenge rules and details can be found HERE.
